New Arrival Picks @ Favorite Retailers:


J.Crew Summer Whites - Laser Cut Circle Midi Skirt, Harper Leather Tassel Mules

Skirt - available here, similar in fall colors here.
Shoes - watch for pop-backs here, a few sizes in another version here, and a few sizes left in these.

I swear this skirt and shoe combination could be the foundation for half of the summer tops in my closet. These beauties were both J.Crew super sale scores that arrived just in time to get some wear out of them before fall arrives. 

I'm late with joining the Laser Cut Midi skirt fan club, but now that I own it I can see why it got such a high rating on J.Crew's website. This skirt is perfection, and even better with a great sale price!

I also ordered this skirt in navy so that I can keep wearing it long after Labor Day. Speaking of transition pieces, the contrast tassels also make the Harper leather tassel mules appropriate to wear with skirts and jeans through early fall. 


My J.Crew Summer Sale Keepers

Tops and Bottoms: 
(watch for pop-backs in all sizes or check in stores)
Linen Pull-On Pant (olive color is my favorite in this one)
Linen Cargo Pencil Skirt (in navy and tidewater, I also grabbed the olive color today)
Gold Foil Leaf Shell (petite size is the perfect length)

I was able to add something for almost every season to my wardrobe over the past week, at amazing sale prices. These were the 'keeper' items from my orders so far. Some things didn't work out, like the Linen Pull-On Pant in the ecru color (love it in olive though), the Lena Heeled Slides that were too wide for my feet, Vachetta Leather Crisscross Slides in ivory (not very flattering on larger feet), and the Cropped Shell that ran small on me.

(watch for pop-backs in all sizes or check in stores)
Abbot Metallic Slides (all Abbot slides here)
Isla Raffia Slides (blue colorway goes with the linen skirt)

Surprisingly, the Abbot Metallic slide was my favorite sandal from the batch in terms of comfort. The Isla Slides are very flattering but the second strap is a tad loose on my narrow feet. I can still wear them and for the sale price it's cheaper to keep them than to pay for the return shipping. :) 


Outfit Post - Stripes and Floral and J.Crew New Arrivals Outfit Inspiration

There are a few ways I like to wear a thin scarf on warm days. Early in the morning and indoors if the A/C is turned up, and also twisted into a belt or around the handles of a tote bag or purse.

The sandals shown in my set arrive tomorrow. They would have been even better with my outfit today than black ones...oh well.
OOTD - Stripes and Floral

Tank - similar on sale here
Scarf - another print I like here.
Clutch - similar here and here.
Sandals - available here (watch for pop-backs), also similar here and here.
Shorts - similar here.
Hat - similar here.

I also love this casual Friday/weekend outfit idea from J.Crew's Instagram today...

This skirt looks like it's the perfect length for taller gals - definitely one for my wishlist.
