Happy Tuesday! My kids just went back to school today so I am seriously all out of sorts. I ordered a few things from the J.Crew/ J.Crew factory sale that I wanted to share with you. Fun fact: I worked at J.Crew in college until I graduated! It was one of my very favorite jobs and I will one day work there again. Discounts are amazinggggg.
I just threw these on out of the box, so they’re a little wrinkled and I would wear different shoes with a few. I did this in 5 min before I had to grab my big kids from school!
Tie Strap Tank: I’ve wanted this top forever and finally bit the bullet and grabbed one. They have a few other colors. It’s linen so definitely needs to be steamed. My favorite thing is that the straps are real. You create the bow separate so you don’t have to worry about it coming undone and you can wear a real bra! It runs a little big in the strap, so if you are smaller chested, I would size down. I’m in a medium!
Floral Dress: This is what I wore on Easter Sunday. I absolutely loveeee the print. It’s so sweet. The chest is smocked, which I’m usually a little hesitant about because I have bigger boobs and it makes me self conscious, but I think this dress worked well. I really love the puff sleeves a lot. AND it has pockets. I’m in a medium! TTS.
Blue and White Striped Dress: I love these midi dress. Very classic with the blue and white stripes. Smocked top again because it’s literally everywhere this season, but it works again wit this dress. The straps are perfect and you can wear a real bra with the dress. Yay! And has pockets! Double Yay! TTS. I’m in a medium.
White Top: This is such fun spin on the white button up top. I love the ruffle details and flutter sleeves a ton. Functional buttons all the way down so perfect if you’re nursing. Tops like this can be worn so many different ways. I think I’ll do a how to style it sesh with this one! It’s sheer, so you may feel more comfortable in a cami, but definitely not see through. I’m in a medium. TTS!
Purple/ Navy Tank: I love this print a ton. The flutter sleeve is really sweet. Fits really well in the body, but the straps are a little big. If you are smaller chested, I would definitely size down. I can make it work, but may wear a strapless bra because they kind of fall and I think I can play around with the straps a little better. Again, if you are smaller chested, size down. I’m in a medium.
Tried on this swim and I liked it other than my boobs wouldn’t stay in. The second I lifted my arms my boob popped right out. I sized up and I felt like it fit my body fine, just not the chest. I just feel like J.Crew bathing suits having never been made for someone with a larger chest.
