I've been so neglectful of my blog lately, I just don't seem to have enough hours in the day. Nonstop house showings (a good thing!), compounded by bronchitis (not awesome!), has left me a bit depleted and focusing on getting better and getting our house sold. We had a little hiccup there, but I know we'll get there. :)
In the meantime, I needed a break from the vacuuming and treated myself to a trip to J.Crew to see new offerings, some of which aren't online yet. I liked quite a bit of what I saw.
The Liberty Tresco floral print was front and center at my store, with the toothpicks, a mini, the invitation clutch and shirt options. I tried the mini and the Invitation clutch. The mini is just too mini for me nowadays, but it was cute. I tried my normal skirt size, 4, and probably would size up to a 6 for a touch more length, if I was considering it.
The Invitation Clutch was my pick for the print. It's really vibrant and fun, and will go with nearly everything. It's a nice thick cotton, in the usual Invitation size and shape, which I find really practical, as you can fit quite a bit in there. Some of you might prefer a leather (which would probably lengthen the lifetime of it), but I kind of like the cotton. Makes it much more lightweight, which is nice for the warmer months. I think the chain is great, especially with that little bit of print at the top, and it can be tucked away if you want to use it just as a clutch.
What do you think of the Tresco print?
Have a great day!
