Retro Friday

Happy Friday!  Fridays just don't get here fast enough for me lately.  This new job is really giving me a beating.  I'll be so glad when I'm not new anymore and I know what the heck I'm doing.

I picked up the J. Crew Cafe Capris in Retro Jade this week in-store with the extra 25% off making them $37.49.  I also got this Rugby Stripe Top in Retro Jade & Navy for $14.99!  These tops are $19.99 in store plus 25% off.  I also grabbed the black and white one.  I got these in a Small.  The X-Small fit better through the body but the arms were ridiculously tight.

If you are taking advantage of the 25% promo, keep in mind that the in-store prices are better than online as you can see above.  The capris above are still $89.99 online and the rugby stripe tops are $34.99.  I also got a long sleeve perfect tee in Romance Pink on promo for $19.50 plus 25% off.  The Sandwashed Silk tops in pink and cobalt are $34.99 plus 25% off and I bought the pink one.

Are you taking advantage of the 25% off promo?

Feather Paisley

This is one of my favorite J. Crew patterns.  I bought it this Spring although it totally read Fall to me.  I wore it all Spring and Summer with orange and now plan to wear it with camel and navy for Fall and Winter.  I only wish I'd bought the skirt..........

Sketchbook Roses

This skirt is definitely an oldie but a goodie in my book.  It is one of JC's finest - fully lined, pockets (!), high quality, OH MY!  I'm also a HUGE fan of the old J. Crew jewelry like this turtle necklace.

Also love my Tippis - current promo is great - 25% everything.  Even sale and factory items are getting the discount.  I don't really see anything I can't live without, but that has never stopped me before :).

Thoughts on the yellow shoes?  A little much?  Too matchy-matchy?  I value your opinion.

Classic Cobalt

This is my first Anthropologie purchase.  I love their clothes on other people, but have never found anything that seemed like me.  Until now..... I found this skirt in the sale room for $39 and knew it would be mine.  The skirt is fully lined and the pattern matches - what a concept!

Grape & Mango

Sorry I've been MIA lately.  Actually, I've been ATL.  LOL :). 

I picked up this Tippi this week-end on sale plus 25% off.  The SA insisted that the 25% off didn't apply to sale sweaters, but thanks to my fellow JCAs I knew better and successfully convinced her to give me the additional discount.

Orange Pop

I felt kinda like a J. Crew model today - only not as young, not as thin, and not as attractive :).  I guess to make it official I should have done the signature J. Crew shirt un-tuck.

Roses & Sunflowers

One thing you can count on with J. Crew is that their colors go together from season to season and year to year.  This cardigan is a few years old and the skirt is from this year, but the match couldn't be more perfect.  Gotta love it.

It was pouring rain this morning hence the indoor pics.

More Snake Print

Since so many people dislike the snake prints, I hate to admit that I have alot.  I have 2 pairs of pumps, a pair of loafers, a handbag, and this cardigan.  I have had the shoes for a couple of years and purchased the handbag and cardigan last year.  I think snake is here to stay :).

Blackwatch Plaid

Blackwatch Plaid is very fall/winter to me so I haven't worn this skirt in quite awhile.  Love the wide waistband and the pockets.  Good job, JC!

98 Degrees

No, not the boy band, the temperature.  I'm kinda jealous of all the posts I'm reading about the cooler weather.  No such luck here.  I'm trying to will myself into Fall with Fall colors.  I wear this skirt year round, but usually with a bright yellow or pink top.  I'm thinking the chartreause cardigan makes it look more Fall?

Fall in Florida

Okay so we don't really get Fall in South Florida.  Or Winter or Spring.  I don't miss cold weather, but I do miss corduroy, boots, coats, etc.  This is how I dress for Fall in SoFlo :).

Also, check out my new Steve Madden loafers purchased via Piperlime.  $39.99 plus 20% off and free shipping :).  Very Fall IMO.  And comfy too!  A few sizes left HERE.

Mint & Maraschino Cherry

Sounds like yummy ice-cream, doesn't it?  I bought this J. Crew Blythe during the last 30% off sale and have debated about whether to keep it or return it.  I love the color, but didn't think it would go with much in my closet plus pastels make me think of Spring.  I've decided it looks good with red, burgundy, navy, and brown (think Safari Cat skirt and cafe capris) and therefore will work with my Fall wardrobe.  I'm planning to incorporate pastel pink into my Fall wardrobe as well.

What do you think about pastels for Fall?
