J. Crew Tippi in heart crepe, Featherweight colorblock cardigan & Soludos espadrilles

After last J. Crew haul with just bottoms, I had to place another order on tops only! Oh, well, tops and a pair of shoes.

Not a lot of new additions to the J. Crew sale section online but they are adding some items daily so check it out.

Heading to the city this week and heard the in-store sales are fantastic. Can't wait for more hauls!

What motivated me to place another order so soon? Well, I entered a giveaway from a fabulous blogger, Rynetta @ jcrewismyfavstore.blogspot, I could not believe that I won and even better, I won a gift certificate at both our favorite store: J. Crew! With money burning in my pocket, I quickly made an order. Thanks again, Rynetta!

When this Tippi sweater came out, didn't catch my eye. I am actually surprised as I'm usually a big suck  for anything with heart prints. 

I went with my usual size in this as this sweater is very light and I  plan to wear it mostly for cool summer nights. So didn't size up and I'm very happy with how it fits. The heart prints are handprinted(according to the little label came with the sweater). I know other Tippi sweaters can be a bit sheer but since this is a darker color, I don't see any sheerness.


(please excuse my print tee, I was so excited to try it on as soon my package arrived)

When the new J. Crew rollout came out, this cardigan was the first to catch my eye. I love hot pink and what greater way to tone it down with navy blue.  But for some reason, this cardigan did not get a lot of love from fellow J. Crew bloggers.


Here is another shot of the cardigan paired with a plain-colored tank top

This cardigan is very ligthweight, as the name suggested. I decided to size up as the fabric looks kind of snug and I don't want it to be too body-hugging.

This cardigan is perfect for traveling as it would never get wrinkle and it is light and easy to pack.





Espadrilles are excellent for summer. Lightweight and easy on your feet. They don't come in half sizes and I'm a 7 1/2 and I decided to go up to a 8. A bit big and in the summer with the heat, feet may swell up so I think it's better to size up if you're in between sizes than being too snug. I will see if I want to put in half an insole later on if they slip off.

  1. Such pretty items, we don't have J Crew in the UK (although there is a rumour one will open, in London probably :( ) I always like the look of their clothes tho. Loving the heart print! x

    1. I think J Crew ships to UK as well. My closest J. Crew store is 4 hours away from me and I usually order online. One trick is to rely heavily on fellow bloggers on sizing info. They are very precise and detailed so I have never encountered a problem which I need to return items.

  2. You did good! Everything looks great on you! Thanks for the info on the Soludos. I'm a size 7-7.5 also and was wondering about sizing.

    1. if you're a 7 or 7.5, I would go to a size 7. Since I'm a 7.5 most of the time, 7 would be too snug for me.

  7. Aww, I love those espadrille flats. I've been trying to decide between a pair of those or a pair of TOMS. Decisions decisions!

    1. I haven't tried on TOMS but they look similar and super comfy too! They are great summer shoes. Can walk miles and shopping would be a breeze in these :)
