Happy Holidays! Is everyone sick of J.Crew yet? Sorry for another J.Crew post but I wanted to show the 2nd part of my haul. I didn't have anything planned and I was going to do an Ann Taylor Tweed coat review but the pics did not turn out. It was quite frustrating! Who knew taking blog photos could be so exhausting! LOL So hopefully you will enjoy these:) Up first is the J.Crew Ruffle tank and Henna Bell wool skirt:
Top: J.Crew Ruffle Tank in Platoon green- size XXS (buy HERE)
Skirt: J.Crew Wool Bell Skirt in Henna- size 00 (buy HERE)
Shoes: Ann Taylor Porcini Pumps- size 5 (similar HERE)
Belt: Brown Pleather belt taken from Grey H&M skirt
Yes I am trying to take pics from a different room! This is my family room, the lighting seems to be much for friendly. This ruffle tank fits nicely except it's super duper long. But once tucked in, it works. The arm holes are decent and not too big. And this is nice to dress up or down. I can see me wearing it with a cardi or blazer over it.
Here is the back of the skirt to show you the fit. See this top on ExtraPetite and this skirt on AlterationsNeeded, Elle, and PetiteXXS. The color Henna online looks more like a true red but in real life, it's orangey red/rust color. I like it a lot! It's different and I need something like this in my wardrobe.
Sweater: J.Crew Merino Placket in weathered wood- size XXS (buy HERE)
Shell: J.Crew Pleated Flutter Shell in gossamar peach- size XXS (buy HERE)
Shoes: Cole Haan Bronze Platform Pumps (Nordie Rack)- size 5 (similar HERE)
Here is the weathered wood color of the Merino Placket Chiffon cardigan that all the petites have. See? I am trying to wear different colors!!! And the pleather flutter shell is super pretty. I also got in charcoal. I think it's supposed to be worn un-tucked but I like it tucked much better. Fits nicely and arm holes are small. Got it for $13 so I can't complain! Usually I would have some returns but I love everything from my J.Crew Haul!!! I think I am keeping everything!
Top: J.Crew Muse Tank in golden topaz- size XXS (buy HERE)
Jeans: GAP Legging Jeans in classic wash- size 00p (buy HERE)
Here is to show you the jeans with pumps instead of boots. These jeans are a much tighter fit than the dark faded rinse I love. The material is a bit different too. I decided to keep it because it was only $35. I don't love it as much as my dark faded
jeans but I figured they fit well and I could get some wear out of them.
Here is the back so you can see the length and the back of the medium wash Gap legging jeans. See this Muse Tank on Vicky and PetiteXXS.
Top: J.Crew Ruffled Tank in white- size XXS (buy HERE)
Jacket: Theory Khaki Blazer- size 00
Jeans: Gap Legging Jeans in medium wash- size 00p (buy HERE)
Shoes: Aldo Taupe Patent Pumps- size 35/5 (similar HERE)
I am known to get multiple colors of something if it goes on sale so I had no choice but to pick up the white color of the Ruffled Tank! Glad I did because it will go with everything! I kind of wish I would have gotten the pink one too- darn it!
So yesterday, I tweeted about how I spent 7 hours at the dealership and then got home at 9:00 and went straight to my tailor. It was such a long day but I just had to get everything done! I finally got my adult H & M super squin jeans hemmed that I got for $10 and they fit smaller than the GAP legging jeans! And also took my camel skirt length up several inches. Interesting fact- my tailor measured and my perfect skirt length is 20" which is exactly half of how long my legs are from my waist. This hits right above the knee for me (about 2 inches).
So stay tuned for that!
I snuck into LOFT since the stores were open until 11pm last night and ended up impulse buying. My Mini Cheetah print shell I have been waiting for finally went on sale at my LOFT and there was one XXSP left so I scooped that one up. I also got the abstract print blouse with tie on sale as well. Not sure if I am keeping this but wanted to try it on at home!
