Stripes & Floral

Stripes and floral is one of my favorite combinations. I don’t have a whole lot of floral pieces, but I’m always on the lookout for a new addition! This striped cardigan is a popback that I picked up during the last J. Crew sale. I love it. It’s probably my favorite piece I picked up. See below for some reviews on the other items!

The J. Crew Reviews:

  • Perfect Fit Stripe Cardigan: This is the cardigan shown above. I love everything about it and am so excited I picked it up for less than $30. This is an xs and fits comfortably, but not tight. The material is a comfy cotton in navy and cream colors
  • Sailor Boatneck Tee: This tee is just ok, but I wouldn’t pay more than about $20 for it. I got it in the gray color, and its a nice, versatile hue. The fit is a little baggy in an xs, but its fine overall. It hits at my hip. I’m not sure yet if I’ll be keeping it.
  • Altuzarra for J.Crew Patricia top: This is the most disappointing purchase. The top is beautiful, but the fit is totally off. The arms are extremely tight and uncomfortable in the xxs, but the body is baggy. Returning.
  • Altuzarra for J.Crew Serge sweater: I wanted this sweater for a long time and finally picked it up when it went to sale. I was not at all a fan of the holes in it, but I like the overall style. I got an xs and its ok. I like it overall, but I’m not awed by it. It fits well and is a more lofty cashmere. I’m hoping it goes on a better sale.
