Review: J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Waterfloral

Hi Everyone!

I was super excited to get the J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Waterfloral last week.  I really like the pattern of this skirt.  Here are a few IRL pictures:

I love the idea of pairing this skirt with the Royal color Blythe Blouse in Silk as seen in the following website image:

I LOVE this image!

    Thanks for the post. The pink is much darker IRL! I like it better than I thought as I was not interested in the super pale pink that it appeared to be online! If it makes it to super sale I might get it.

    It's very pretty, but I definitely have too many summer skirts. I need some thick, winter ones.

    (original) Genny: No problem, thanks for stopping by! I totally agree with you that the print is much darker IRL. Like you, I thought that it was super pale on the screen. I contemplated waiting for a sale, but my size is always gone when I wait. Please let me know if you grab the skirt. I'd love to know how you style it!Rose: I agree, this skirt is very pretty! I really need to build my spring/summer wardrobe. I'm hoping that the upcoming J. Crew rollouts help me do that!Thanks SO much for being here ladies!

    I love the shade of pink that it is and the pattern is not too much. Very pretty skirt and I love how it looks paired with royal blue.

    The skirt is beautiful! I like that the pink color isn't too pale and the print is subtle enough that you can mix and match this one with lots of tops, maybe even some prints, like polka dots and stripes. Thanks for posting the pictures! 🙂

    fshnonmymind: I totally agree with you about the shade of pink and the pattern! I love that the pattern isn't overwhelming. I'm super excited about pairing the skirt with the royal blue color. Years ago I would have been too shy to do so!A Bigger Closet: Thanks!! I totally agree with you about mixing and matching prints. You're welcome! I'm happy to post pictures! Most of my friends won't even walk into a J. Crew store, so I love the conversations we have about J. Crew clothing on our blogs!Thanks SO much for being here ladies!!!
