Anyway, first up is the Old Navy bird print blouse. After seeing this cute top on ShopwithM and ShOperaRach, I knew I wanted to try it on. Its not my usual style and everyone in my family has made a comment about it ("are those tennis raquets? jalapeno peppers?"), but I love it. Its not the best quality in the world, but it doesn't immediately scream polyester to me either. I wouldn't have bought this if it wasn't ON priced, because well, its a bird shirt. I like it with jeans and boots for now, and it will be cute with flats later. I can also see it looking good with shorts and flip flops. We'll see. I got it for around $25 when ON was doing a promo, but I think its even cheaper in the stores right now. I saw a bunch on the sale racks there today.
Next up is the J. Crew French Dove Graphic Tee. At least that's what I think its called. Its not on the website anymore so I had to google. Anyway, this is really cute, and my store had a bunch of them. I am wearing an XS and it fits well. I love the length of it and I really hope it doesn't shrink too much. I can't stand too short tee shirts.
It was 65 degrees here in the Garden State today, so I wore the tee with an old gray cardigan (Loft) and my Seven Dojo jeans. Shoes are my favorite ballet flats, Lucky Emmies. Didn't even need a jacket! This is my favorite kind of weather, although I am sure my kids will be sick soon because of it.
Now for the J. Crew Talitha Blouse in Vintage Berry. I have lusted after this top for a long time. I waited and waited for a full price promo since I think the price is way too high, and finally it came over Presidents' weekend. I really wanted the Wreath color that the model is wearing, but its backordered until April, so I decided to try the berry. I am just not sure if the top itself works on me. I feel like the sleeves look a lot more puffed on me than they are on the model. I am wearing a size 2, and I could possibly size down to a 0 (I tried it on in the store in navy and it fit, but I think the 2 is better). As far as I know the stores are only carrying the navy (I called 3 of them a few weeks ago looking for the green to wear on HGTV) but there are a bunch of other colors online.
See the shoulder pouffiness? Does it look weird? I have the blue dove tee on underneath b/c I was too lazy to take it off, so don't mind that. :)
Update 2/25 - I went to J. Crew today to return the Talitha and surprisingly, they had a ton of them in the green (and the pink)! I tried both in a size down (size 0, hello vanity sizing) and the fit was much better on the shoulders (considerably less pouffy), and a little shorter in length which I liked for this top. I wanted both of them but I ended up with the green because I think I'll get more wear out of it. It will work in the fall and winter and I think the pink is too pink for anything but spring and early summer.
I think that's all for now! I still have a dress post coming soon. Have a great night!
