I'm finally getting back into the swing of things, post-yard sale madness. So much to catch up on! We had a very successful sale and it was a lot of fun. Trying to decide what item to now purchase with my part of the "fun money." We put most into savings, but we each are getting a little bit to play with, after all that work. I think I'll see what the next fall rolloutout has to offer at la Crew... (she says, rubbing her hands together and cackling gleefully).
Anyway...on to a couple reviews I've been meaning to post for a while. Two lovely pieces from J.Crew's current fall offerings, the double serge in heather acorn and the cashmere henley. They feel very luxe together, and also quite cozy and comfortable.
No. 2 Double-serge Pencil Skirt in heather acorn. It's odd that with my pencil skirt collection, I do not have anything in camel. I've been more focused on the bold colors and fun prints. But there's something to be said for a classic and neutral camel, so I'm really happy they have this color this year. Usual fit (size 4).
Cashmere Henley in heather caramel. This was a bit of a splurge, but it helped to use a giftcard and the 20% discount. I love it, and it's another a classic. The leather buttons are fab, and the fit is great. Sleeves are a touch long, which perhaps is on purpose and I love. I usually do XS or small in their sweaters, and went with small for this one and think it's perfect b/c it's a bit slouchy. I can wear a shirt under it, which is how I'll style it a lot I'm sure. The caramel color is gorgeous, and I like that it's a shade darker than my pencil skirt, so can wear them together for an easy monochromatic look with fun accessories/boots.

Here are some ways I plan to wear these pieces separately:
Have a wonderful day!
