Hello! As we approach the end of the year and head in to winter, I am long overdue for a try-on post! There hasn’t been enough in store the last few months to draw me in but as we approach holiday time, I have been finding more to love in the recent collections. Fall and winter are usually J.Crew’s best seasons and while it’s been a long time since I’ve wanted every single item that’s been released, I’m still able to find clothing to add to my closet. The items in this latest try-on session are from a few recent rollouts and we can look forward to the rest of the holiday items being released the week of Thanksgiving. So let’s get to it!
I’m still kicking myself for purchasing other items and not this combination. In all fairness, I did purchase the leopard pencil skirt and I am trying (although not always succeeding) at being more discerning about my purchases. I’m still utilizing Rent the Runway so I am really trying to purchase items that will be repeat wears and that was my line of reasoning yet I’m still thinking about this! Both items are polyester which isn’t necessarily a deal breaker for me but I still think I can wait for a better deal. There. Moving on. I’m wearing an 8 in the skirt and a small in the blouse (trending more in size 6 territory in tops these days) and have been more on the 8 size of things in skirts. This blouse would get a ton of weekend wear for me and the skirt is beautiful on it’s own too.
