J. Crew New Arrivals: What I’m Loving!

Hi Everyone!

I was super excited to see new arrivals on the J. Crew website this morning!  I also stopped by my retail store to check out the new items.  Here’s what I’m loving:

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Stripe Ballet Flats.  I grabbed these this morning.  Here’s an IRL picture of the shoes:

 I’m also loving the Talitha Top in Peacock Paisley and the Talitha Blouse in Vintage Berry.  I grabbed both of  these tops as well:

I’m also loving the Raindrop Lace Top in Neon Azalea.  For some reason, my store didn’t get a size 12 in this top.  I can’t wait to get this beauty from another store in my area:

Finally, It’s no secret that I love pencil skirts, so I’m super excited about the Royal Violet color of the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Cotton.  I will post IRL pictures of this beautiful color when the skirt arrives next week:

Sadly, the other pencil skirts I love aren’t offered in a size 14.  Oh well, that’s money saved!

That’s what I’m loving!  What J. Crew new arrivals are you loving?  Do tell!

Thanks for stopping by!

    I am also loving the purple color of the No. 2 cotton pencil skirt. I may have to have that since my school colors are purple and grey–hey, if it's for my job, it's not really shopping, right? Haha.

    Hi RynettaI touched those shoes like 3x went I went to my B&M on Tuesday!!!! So funny they look great on you. I didn't want to try on because I knew I would buy them 🙂 Did you buy your normal size or up 1/2 a size? I am also considering the Madewell pointy toe skimmers, they are a little less expensive and since I am shorter the pointy makes me look not so short hahaha. Enjoy all of your new pretties and thanks for posting, love your blog!!

    AppGal: I'm with you about the new Royal Violet color in the No. 2 Pencil Skirt. I'm all over it!!! I can't stop laughing about your school colors comment. Too funny!!!! Hey, you have to have clothes that show your school spirit, right? MB: Hi there!! Okay, you and I are definitely kindred spirits. I couldn't stop looking at the Stripe Ballet Flats. My PS pulled them for me because she knew that I'd want them, and boy oh boy was she right as always! I did size up to a 9 1/2. The size 9 fit, but I liked the fit of the 9 1/2 much better. I keep looking at the Madewell pointy toe skimmers but I can't decide if I want them. Please let me know if you get them!!!! And, thanks so much for your comment about my blog. I really appreciate you being here!!!Thanks SO much for being here ladies!

    Oh, those ballet flats are fabulous! What a bummer that the 20% off ended yesterday :(The lace tee is also on my wishlist, but I'll probably go for navy, although the pink is so pretty. Please post pics when you get it!

    I love the stripe ballet flats, do they ran true to size? I haven't bought any JCrew shoes in a really long time because the size 7 seems to run a little big and the 6 1/2 are a little tight. The raindrop lace tee is gorgeous, does it come in other colors?

    Joelle: I love the Stripe Ballet Flats too!! I sized up a 1/2 size. My regular size 9 fit; however, the 9 1/2 fit much better. And, the raindrop lace top comes in a camel color and navy as well. Shopwithm did a review of the top earlier today on her wonderful blog, Shopping with M. I hope that helps! Please let me know if you decide to get the top and the shoes. I'd love to know what you think about both items!Thanks SO much for being here!!

    I love that peacock paisley blouse too but since I bought the one in purple, I figured this one was too similar.I love the raindrop lace top too and couldn't pick a favorite color. I ordered the apricot and neon pink and can't wait to see it in person.

    fshnonmymind: I hear you about the similarities between the Talitha peacock paisley blouse and the purple version. I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I purchased both!I can't wait to see your review of the Raindrop Lace Top. This top is one of my favorite pieces from the new arrivals. I can't wait to get this beauty in my hands!!!Thanks SO much for being here!
