J Crew Jardin Skirt

As you can tell from the luggage on my bed, I am on my way out of town to do nothing but lay at a pool, not cook, do a little shopping and oh, did I mention not cook? I am headed to the world famous garlic capital of the world, Gilroy. Why you ask? Well simply, that's the small town my parents live in.  Nothing glamorous just good ole' relaxing with the kiddos.

I did not want to leave without a quick picture of the Jardin skirt. I ordered this skirt back in June when it was first released on the website and was back ordered. It finally arrived on Tuesday. I must admit, I thought the odds were low that I would end up liking this skirt, even lower that I'd love it. Truth is, in a lot of their pics it looks too poofy and hard to wear. Nut in person, I LOVE this skirt. It is so light and it falls nicely...not too poofy at all. Oh....and it has pockets, need I say more? For a proper review and pictures that aren't rushed on an iPhone, check out App Gals post here with a perfect review. I did have to wear a slip, the skirt it is lined but it is lined with the same light cotton fabric which still equalled too sheer for me.
For those of you who are interested or have this skirt at home, here are some styling ideas from my Polyvore collection.....

And the catalog image I have fallen in love with:

Looks sooo cute on you! I still haven't tried it, but saw it in my store the other day. If it's still there, I might have to give it a try. Thanks for the cute pic. Have a great and relaxing vacation at your parents'!!

I'm so glad you love this skirt as much as I do! Right now, I think we might be the only two in the blogging world who have tried it and love it. It is a great little skirt. I decided last night that I am copying your outfit for my first day of school outfit...hope you don't mind! :) Have a wonderful, relaxing vacation!

Oh, I know what's in Gilroy....lots of outlets, right?!!! Have fun shopping...I mean, visiting family! =) Love that skirt on you so much...it's on my wish list but I just noticed it's listed as 24" which is way too long for my short legs. Sad! I'll have to love it fro mafar I suppose!

I tried this skirt on in the store and loved it but I didn't buy it because I had no idea what I would pair it with. The way you styled it is great and I liked one of the polyvore options too. I may have to go back and get it. :)

Can you tell me what kind of sandals those are? I love the way they look with that outfit.

Nice to see a lady that will still wear a slip. Seems like so many women never wear slips anymore.
