And here is the Polyvore. I switched out the belt for one that matched my shoes and I wore my light pewter Jackie. I had always intended to I was just too
Items in this set:
So now for my Friday trip to J Crew where I didn't get the one item I was looking for. As many of you know from the JCA blog (or as Gigi would say, the Mothership) I have been desperately searching for the Neapolitan Pencil Skirt in a size 8. I did a store wide search, scoured the site for pop backs every day, called numerous stores based on JCA tips and did another storewide search with no luck. Finally, I gave up. So when I went to my store on Friday and saw a bunch on the rack I almost resisted the urge to check out the sizes as to not break my heart all over again. Luckily, I looked because there it was in my OWN store. An 8 that was returned.
I also drank the crewlade from Dina, Sumerilla and HeidiG and picked up the Jaspe Sequined Slouchy Sweatshirt which was WAY out of my budget and my belief on what you should ever pay for one article of clothing. What can I say? It really is great on and was impossible to leave behind. I also grabbed the skimmer pants (which are so very flattering) in violet dust and the bling bling cardigan in wild mushroom ( I am so recreating the catalog look, you know the one with the gray sequin tank) and I found a lilac jackie on sale. The SA talked me in to trying out the Tailored Linen Pencil Skirt in the wet peat colorway. This skirt is so flattering and classic. It runs a little smaller then other J Crew pencil skirts and it is a little shorter. I bought the same size as I always do but the cut was higher and more curve hugging then my others. I also picked up the natural covered pearl necklace and this cute little flower pin. Here is a snapshot of my loot:
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day, I know I did. My husband got me a bottle of Donna karen's Cashmere Mist and they took me out to have carrot cake at Nordtrom's Cafe (ever tried it? It is amazing!!!). Here is what the kids and I wore, I traded out the sunshine skirt for the Neapolitan of course!
