J.Crew Spring Roll-Out #2 - Even Better
Just in time for me to buy more items that aren't quite weather appropriate yet! This JC roll-out seems larger than the last couple ... which was confirmed by the great PS's at my B&M. Dare I say there were less ruffles this time around? Maybe I just purchased less ruffles from this roll-out! I know most shoppers are a little ruffled-out ... and I'm almost there! Anyway, here were my faves:
Our featherweight cotton is extra luxurious in a superfine yarn (so it's lightweight and incredibly soft). We made this cardigan extra long to make it even more extravagant, then gave it exposed lining for a touch of eye-catching texture. V-neck. Long sleeves. Welt pockets. Hits below hip. Import. Machine wash. #23007
This cardi comes in many yummy colors it was hard to choose! Being from Louisville, KY (home to the KY Derby) I'm partial to this color called "Mint Julep", so that's what I went with. I'm quite sure a professional stylist would say this color is not in my "color palette" but I've been obesessed with it lately, so I don't really care!
The weight is perfect for just about any time of the year and I LOVE that this is NOT merino! The merino cardigans and sweaters always seem to cling in the wrong places and get holes easily.... we'll see how this holds up! I'll definitely purchase the Naples Yellow and Dark Coral colors if this goes on promo.
I have the cardigan over a Swirling Cotton Perfect Tank in a size Medium in Cobblestone. It was just put online today! I always size-up on the "perfect fit" items because they are very close fitting and that's not my "favorite fit". I love the color and the flower detail... it's not as 'much' as the Tissue Garland Tank, which I just couldn't make myself love.
Back view to see the length. Pardon the peek-a-boo tag!
I really wanted a navy tank to layer with that I could also wear alone and this will be perfect! I bought a size Small and might have up-sized for belly room but the top in the Medium was huge and I would never be able to fill it out (kind of the same thing with the tier tank).
I personally think this is a much better look, with the tank not tucked in.
The white tier tank in OK with this, but cream looks even better.
