OOTD Apr 27/12 & J. Crew Tillary Tote in Flax

** Don't forget to enter my 100 followers giveaway to win a pair of Regina Pierallini earrings **


Where has the warm weather gone? I recall wearing sandals and capri for a good few days last month. This week, we had a bit of flurries and it was so windy this morning.

Back to my layering


J Crew Factory Gingham shirt (size small)
J Crew pearl clusters necklace
Gray cardigan from Honey(a store from Bayview Village in North York, ON)

This gingham shirt is from J. Crew factory. The material is much lighter than the regular J. Crew gingham. Not that smooth cotton, a little bit sheer and also get that " wrinkly" feel. I swear, I ironed it and it still looks like it has been (even though I am known to be a pretty bad ironer).


Love my J. Crew pearl clusters necklace. Making my outfit a little bit more sophisticated. Don't you love how a nice necklace can put a finishing touch to your outfit?

A few of you may know that I placed my order through my personal shopper from J. Crew a couple of weeks ago to get the Tillary tote in canvas (in flax). Since they had to locate the tote first from one of their retail stores and then ship to a distribution centre to examine(to make sure it is in perfect shape), it takes a little bit longer than regular online orders.

So today, I finally received it and very excited. So here it is:


J. Crew Tillary tote in canvas ( flax)


As much as I love my other Tillary tote(red/blue stripes), I think I would use this one more often as it is more neutral and easier to match my outfits. 

I find the leather on the handle of the flax is a little bit softer than my other one for some reason. Overall, very happy with the quality of the flax and looking forward to wearing it lots.
