This Just In!

Last week, J. Crew rolled out some of their new arrivals for summer and for the first time in a while I actually loved almost everything they had to offer. In fact, I loved a few things so much that I snatched them up right away during an extra 20% off promo sale last weekend just in case they sold out, which, in the case of two of the items I purchased, actually did happen. (I guess my paranoia paid off, although not for my wallet!) One thing I used to love about J. Crew was their innovative prints that always had a little bit of a vintage vibe. So when I saw this pintucked midi skirt in morning floral print I instantly fell in love with it. Sure, I have a lot of floral prints, but I loved the colors, retro feel and longer length of this skirt, so into my shopping cart it went!

Since I wanted to get free shipping on my order, I also sprung for this linen striped T-shirt. Again, as I wrote a couple weeks ago, I most definitely don't need anymore striped shirts, but I didn't really have a blue stripe that was just this exact shade of blue, which just happens to match the skirt perfectly. So given this reasoning and the lure of free shipping, into my shopping cart it went. As you can see, I have a lot of self restraint!
