J. Crew rugby stripe boatneck

Aside from my new beloved ballet flats from J. Crew(see blog here), I got a few sweaters on the same order.

When I first saw this, it didn't quite catch my eye. But the more I look at the navy paired with retro jade, it started to grow on me. I have been obsessed with the minty color all spring/summer. But thought the retro jade will blend very well into fall.

I am trying to wear as much light-colored pants as I can before the cold weather hits. It is such a pair of super-comfy pants. Love them!



Going back to this rugby stripe boatneck top. This is a linen/rayon mix fabric. Interesting mix. It is a bit "rough"to the touch. So if you have sensitive skin, you may find this top quite itchy. But I'm ok with that. It has a more of a boxy fit. I went with my normal size with this and this fits fine. I am just starting to love the retro jade color. Very flattening and goes well with a lot of colors. I love stripes and I'm contemplating to go grab it in cabernet (the burgundy/fuchsia combination).
