J. Crew Haul (part 2)


Cafe capri in silky dot in size 4 (buy here)


I am drawn to anything polka dots. When I saw this online, it seems interesting since it is silk. I was wondering if it would feel like wearing silky pj pants. I love cafe capri but not a big fan of the silk ones. As the fabric is so thin, it shows every lump and bump. Pass for me.


Tippi sweater in colorblock stripe in size 4 
(currently sold out online)

I love this tippi. The stripes are not overpowering. I can wear it with jeans or dress it up with a darker colored pants. This gorgeous sweater can be seen on 1 more Shopping Bag and Sequins & Stilettos.


Jaspe scoopneck popover in size S (buy here)


The fabric is very soft and I like how the sleeves can be rolled up for a more detailed look. Unless you want to layer it with a shirt underneath, I would definitely size down for this one.


Silk boy shirt in French hen (buy here)


When the French hen sweater comes out, you are either a fan of it or hate it. I cannot say that I hate it but thought it is too much for a "grown" woman to have a hen on the sweater. The younger crowd can pull it off and certainly not me. The French hen boy shirt is however much more subtle and cuter in my opinion. Much more wearable. This is a size 4 and I feel there is a lot of room on the shoulder and on the bust area. I would say this blouse fits big. So if you want a tighter fit, definitely size down.


Peter Pan collar sweater in size M(buy here)

Yes, I have decided I want this sweater. Same story with the French hen sweater, you either love it or hate it. I think the Peter Pan collar is quite cute and I tried this on during my last visit at the store. But at $102.50, I wasn't going to bite. But it is on sale in store now for $60 so taking this home with me for sure.

I have a coupon for "when you buy $150, you get 20% off total" with my previous online order. I believe the coupons were sent out with Canadian orders. I wasn't sure if I could use it in store. Checked with the sales associate and she said no problem, they would honor the coupon in store. So I got a lot more than I planned to but I am happy to get the 20% off, making this haul a much sweeter deal.
