Pastel Purple & Mirror Metallic

I love these iced lilac J. Crew Cafe Capris.  They are currently on promo online for $98 but they are cheaper in store.  I also picked up this  J. Crew Tippi Sweater in Multi Color Stripe during the last 30% off sale.  The sweater is still on sale and available in most sizes.  The colors in the sweater are navy, mint, and lilac.  I also plan to wear it with my mint Sterling Skirt.

J. Crew Paisley.... again

I finally found this skirt on ebay and it was NWT.  YIPPEE!!  I couldn't wait to wear it!  I had this pattern in the retail linen pencil skirt version and in the pleat-front skirt factory version, but they no longer fit.  I have been wanting a skirt in this pattern in my size forever.  Anyone remember the name of this pattern?

Plaid & Paisley Pattern Play

I had planned to wear my J. Crew Raj Paisley skirt today with a chambray shirt (per usual), but after seeing Alice's outfit, I decided not to be a total copycat.  Her polka dot chambray shirt looks awesome with the skirt and inspired me to try a pattern with the skirt too.  I just purchased this J. Crew Mini Gingham Shirt in Dark Poppy during the recent 30% off sale.  I missed out on the red gingham shirt last year so I grabbed this one fast.

It is so funny that it took me forever to purchase this skirt because I thought it looked too patriotic and that I would be limited with tops to wear with it.  I am so glad I finally caved because it is one of my favorite J. Crew skirts and I have no problem finding different tops to wear it with.

Mmmmminty Fresh - J. Crew Sterling Skirt

This is my first J. Crew Sterling Skirt and I love, love, love it!  I don't have any of the wool skirts, but I made an exception with this one because of the color.  I am loving pastels for fall and this is no exception.  It fits true to size - I wear a 2 in the #2  pencil skirts and this is a 2 as well.  If you are interested, it looks like they are still available in several sizes (and Petites) and 30% off.

Old Man Pants

These plaid pants from the J. Crew Factory remind me of something my grandpa would wear.  I feminized them with the ribbon necklace and platform pumps.  I love all the fall colors in these pants and I know I will be able to style them lots of different ways.  I got them on super sale for $18!!! and they are lined!!!

Don't forget that on November 21st EVERYTHING at the factory store is 50% off and if you got the coupon in the mail, you can get an extra $25 off $125 or $30 off over $125.  See you at the Factory Store on November 21st :).

Golden Roses

My entire outfit today is from the J. Crew Factory.  I like that if I miss out on a retail item (like this skirt) I can sometimes catch it at the Factory.

Burgundy & Polka Dots

The polka dot Blythe was not on the top of my wish list - until everyone else had it.  Then I knew it had to be mine.  I am so glad I succumbed to peer pressure as it is one of my favorite and most versatile tops.  Thank you fellow bloggers!

Fall Pastels

I like the new trend of wearing pastels in the Fall.  I think pairing pastels with brown and leopard makes it Fall appropriate.  What do you think of this trend?

Anyone interested in the Wool Cafe Capris in Iced Lilac should run, not walk, to your nearest J. Crew.  This color just came out, but is already marked to $79.99 in store plus 30% off!!  I ordered them this week when they went on promo for $98 plus 25% off, but those are going back. 

The color is gorgeous and I plan on wearing them now and into Spring and Summer.

Orange & Camel

I would have never put this color combo together, but the top convinced me :).  Love the leopard thrown it.  I liked this outfit when I left this how this morning, but now I LOVE it.  Dozens of compliments today - gotta love that!

You know how I love buying in multiples - I have this top in all color combinations except the pink/burgundy.  I just might need that one too.

I missed this top in the retail version last year.  I have stalked it on JCA and Ebay like a crazy person with no success.  No worries thanks to J Crew Factory.  I would have preferred it in silk, but the poly doesn't really bother me.  I'm always afraid of static with polyester, but I wore this all day with no static issues.

I threw in a red lipstick and red shoes just for fun.

More Animal Sweaters

I've been liking all the animal motifs lately and saw these online and on sale at Macy's.  The sizes were pretty picked over, but I thought I would give them a try since the price was right.  Don't forget that Macy's does free shipping on all orders over $99 and you can do the returns in store.

Sorry about the sad photos.  These were taken at the end of the day and I am not as photogenic :).

Dog sweater by Sweater Project
This is a size large.  I would say they run small.  A medium would have been the perfect fit but those were sold out.
100% cotton - I love that!
For $11.99 I'm keeping this one.
Love his sequin collar!!

Fox Sweater by Sweater Project
This one is a medium and the fit is perfect.  I usually wear a small in J. Crew Tippis, if that is helpful.
The sequins are sewn on and seem very sturdy.
I thought this was cute, but a little too sparkly for me.  I have ordered a fox sweater from Old Navy for a similar price so I'll see how that one works out.

Super Sparkly!

Owl sweater by Jolt.
This is a Large and way too big.  I could probably make it work with leggings, but I don't own leggings.
It is super cute with the bright pink details.
I would keep this if it was a smaller size.  I would need a small in this one.

These are the ones I ordered from Old Navy.  I will review when I receive them.  They are $29.94.  Old Navy has a promo through today for 25% off with code ONTAKE25.  And don't forget free shipping on orders over $50.

I DID NOT order this one.  I think I'm good for owl motifs!!
