Obsessed with Safari Cat

Don't tell anyone, but I bought almost every piece of clothing in the Safari Cat pattern.  I honestly have never done that with any J. Crew pattern before.  I bought the Cafe Capris, the Tessa, the Cardigan, and the Skirt.  I must be the only one who loved the pattern, because I was able to get every item for 30-40% off.  The only piece I didn't get was the shorts, but boy did I try.  I must have tried those suckers on 10 times!  They were just too high waisted and too short (only 3 inches) even for less than $20. 

I know most will think I'm crazy, but I think this pattern will take me well into Fall here in South Florida.  I liked it with the green I wore today, but also plan on pairing with navy, pink, and orange.

Another suprise in my recent 40% FS order were the Caribbean Tweed Cafe Capris in Mango.  I grabbed them last minute because they were only $23 with the discounts.  Love. These. Pants.  The fabric is gorgeous!!  If you get a chance, I highly recommend. 

What do you think of the Safari Cat fabric?  Did you get anything 40% FS that you love?

J. Crew Safari Cat Pencil Skirt
(BTW I got the skirt in a Petite because I didn't like the length on the Regular & it worked out great!)

J. Crew Cardigan
Guess Pumps


  1. Great outfit! That's a good tip on getting the petite version of the skirt as it runs longer. I don't have this skirt myself, but I have the leopard abstract skirt (also was on sale) and it runs a little longer than I would have liked. Next time I will look into the petite size as I am "short and sweet." LOL

    1. Thanks, TC! When ordering the Petite size skirts, just remember to order up one size. I'm usually a 2 in J. Crew pencil skirts and this is a 4 Petite.

  2. I keep hemming and hawwing over this skirt - it has literally been in my basket at least 10 times. I think it will probably end up with me. You look so chic in this outfit! Skirt or capris? which do you recommend?

  3. Great Print! J. Crew produces the BEST PRINTS! noone compares!!!

  4. Oh my goodness! how I missed that?1
    You look stunning, I LOVE this green with the safari cat and the petite skirts!
    Which color is this green? I have the cafe capri in safari, maybe I can wear it in the same way as you did here!
