I stopped by my B & M today to try on a few of the new arrivals. I just couldn’t give up on the Hacking Jacket in tipped double serge-wool. Boy, oh boy, am I glad that I didn’t. I LOVE the black. And, since I missed out on the Lexington Blazer, I just couldn’t pass on this one.
I really like the product shot on the website. I can think of several outfit combinations.
Here’s a really grainy fitting room pic (excuse the t-shirt!). Sorry for the bad image.
What do you think of this version of the Hacking jacket? What new arrivals are you currently craving?
I love to wear basic sweaters, tees, and cardigans on my non-teaching days. I write and prepare for class in coffee shops, so comfort is a must for me! Here are a few of my favorite basics from J. Crew:
I always layer. I have a tough time wearing a woven/button-down shirt without a tank underneath, so the perfect-fit tank is my best (clothing) friend.
What are your favorite basic pieces from J. Crew (or elsewhere!)? Do tell!
P.S. I have a great giveaway planned when I reach 75 followers! Spread the word!
I popped into Ann Taylor Loft today because they’re offering 30% off of everything. I tried on and purchased the Lace Pencil Skirt with Ponte Lining. Let me tell you dear readers, this skirt is perfection!
I will post pics later today! Have you tried this skirt on? Do tell!
I’ve been eyeing the Hacking jacket since it was released on the J. Crew website. I initially ordered the Midnight Ocean color. I couldn’t figure out how it would fit into my wardrobe and my in-store PS didn’t like the color on me. So, we decided to try the Heather Dark Grape color. This color didn’t work on me either. And, I think the fit is off on me. I think I need to stick with the Schoolboy Blazer.
So, I exchanged the Hacking Jacket for this Schoolboy Blazer (I don’t see it online).
What do you think of this Schoolboy Blazer?
