Hi! Another month, another round of new arrivals at J.Crew! I’m going to have to split this up in to two posts since I feel like I tried on everything in the store. My store was just upgraded to a new tier so it was more full than usual this month and I felt a little overwhelmed with my dressing room full of stuff. I went in the evening whereas I usually go first thing in the morning and I am on the tail end of my annual spring cold so I was probably a little more tired than usual but I pushed through. I got the style guide for June and I honestly didn’t see a ton that I had to have but once I tried a few things on I definitely have a few things I’ll be keeping an eye on and depending on your lifestyle, there are definitely items to love. I’m usually looking for workwear items and a few fun weekend pieces. The off-the-shoulder, ruffle, one shoulder trend is still strong and while I’ve more or less hit my saturation point with these, I caved and ended up with another ruffle in my closet for the summer. Enough of my rambling, onward to try ons!
First up, the ruffles I had to have. The lightweight striped off-the-shoulder ruffle sweater.
Shoes: J.Crew Factory
The minute I put this on I was sold. This sweater also comes in a solid version in black or dried thyme (read: olive) and is a viscose/poly blend. I tried a small which is my go to t-shirt size/Tippi size these days (I’m a 6 in blouses / 32E chest). What I liked about this vs. other off the shoulder tops is that it has a strong elastic and with the material of the sweater, it seemed like it would really stay off the shoulder without much adjustment. I did wear it around the house as I debated wearing it out last night (ended up being a little too cold) and it seemed to stay in place. I know it’s trendy, I know I probably won’t get more than two summers out of it, but it made me happy so it came home with me.
