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.

Sandals:
(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.

Outfit Post - Blue, Pink, White and J.Crew Sale Finds


Here's another combination with the blue, pink, black, white palette that I'm crushing on lately. I still love wearing it, but I haven't seen the lovely Botanical bird print on many J.Crew fans this season. For an easy summer outfit, just add a white tee or short-sleeve top to this pretty print. 

OOTD - Botanical Bird Print

White shirt - I'm wearing this one.
Necklace - similar styles here, here, here, here, and here.
Pants - I also love this print for late summer/early fall.
Heels - similar here and here.
Clutch - similar here, here, and here.
Sunglasses - on sale here.


Are you still checking out J.Crew's sale section? I was glad I did this morning or I would have missed out on a couple of my favorite pieces from this year. I can hardly wait to wear the Harper mules with shorts and skirts and the Tipped Twill Jacket once the weather cools off again.  
Also, watch for pop-backs in the same color palette as my outfit with the Isla sandal. I ordered several colors with the extra 75% off sale. They're a steal! :)
