I received several Jcrew presents (!!!) and am eager to incorporate them into my future outfits. My mom had the help of a wonderful PS at the Greensboro, NC store help her out and pick some great items for me.
So today's outfit features two items that my mom brought: Toothpick Jeans in Garment Twill and Raindrop Lace top
Cardigan: Jcrew Cashmere (Warehouse sale find!)
Shirt: Jcrew Raindrop Lace top in Apricot Mist
Jeans: Jcrew Toothpick denim in Bright Spearmint
Flats: Pull & Bear
Toothpick jeans: The color my mom picked out was Bright Spearmint. These are a great bright mint color and are a perfect pair to introduce me to the concept of wearing colored denim.
Size & Fit: I think these run small in comparison to past Toothpick jeans. I have a pair of ankle Toothpick denim jeans and I took 3 sizes up from those. But I think two sizes up would do fine for most. They fit snug but not uncomfortable. They are tighter in the legs and calfs than hips and waist.
Overall Opinion: I love these jeans. I have seen many blogs featuring these and the price is what steers many away. If you can find them on a sale or discount, I recommend them. If they drop on a sale, I might scoop up a pair in another color.
Raindrop Lace top: Oh. My. Goodness. LOVE this top!! I know I will wear and layer this many, many years to come. See Rynetta's review of this top too HERE. Her review made me fall in love.
Color & Fit: I love the Apricot mist color. I am a big fan of neutrals with pops of color, so this color was a no-brainer for me; however, I do see how some people would steer away from it as it could wash you out. But I envision this top with some white jeans in the summer with a pair of espadrilles and a summer tan and it will be great! I took my normal Jcrew size in non-knit tops. The top hits right at my hip and will be great tucked in or left out (as in the OOTD above).
Overall Opinion: Another classic great item from Jcrew. I had been looking for a nice lace layering shirt for my wardrobe and my wardrobe now rejoices. It will make many friends with my other items :)
Thank you as always for your blog love here at Crazy for Crew! Hope each of you have a great Monday!
