Hi! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I always have a hard time restraining myself with holiday collections – plaid, lace, sparkle, what’s not to love? So few days in the holiday season – so many cute things to choose from. J.Crew, once again, has a lot of fantastic items to choose from to make the holidays more stylish. Now, what to choose?

I saw this top in the style guide and wanted to try the ivory/black combination. My store only had the black one so I tried it for size. I’m wearing a 12 in both the blouse and the pants. The pants were a tad tight and too short for my liking – I have the 12 Tall on order. The blouse was flowy and I probably could have sized down to a 10 but I liked the fit so that’s what I ordered in the ivory colorway. When I picked up the top I thought it looked sheer but there is a lining under the blouse so it is not sheer. Depending on how you like it to look, you’d probably have to wear a strapless bra but I didn’t mind the black straps – you could probably get away with a nude bra underneath. I haven’t tried any of the solid wool Martie pants, but I have the cotton ones and like them. The background on these pants is grey and it’s a fairly saturated color.
