Am getting this done earlier than anticipated as I am sending some things back later this afternoon and need your opinion. Or perhaps moral support!
My J Crew box arrived with the two dresses and a ride along thing or two.
Before I show what arrived thought I would share today's outfit, which is simple and designed to keep me warm - a lightweight merino v neck, beige cotton skirt and my black Pliner boots which are old and comfy, It is freezing after yesterday's blizzard, so I definitely needed the scarf!
|Don't know why I took this - I have a thing for circles I guess.|
I ordered the Linen Ribbed Knit sweater to try. On the site, it looks much darker:
IRL, not so much, but I really liked it and have decided it is a nice sweater for spring and summer
|Yes, that is my childhood teddy bear, who has had his eyes and most of his fur, loved off him..|
I don't know why I ordered the linen tee below. I blame it on a moment of madness. Not that it horrible or anything, but it neither me nor the style I aspire to. Back it will go, but wanted to share in case someone else is curious..
Ah, here is where we get on the fence. The eyelet shirtdress in white:
|Yes, those are club fairy shoes...|
A close-up of the blue:
It is pale blue/ecru combo, which you can get a better sense of when I pair it with my cotton Clare cardigan in Champagne:
I have decided there is no sense purchasing sandals till end of May, but these I will be able to wear much sooner and have been on my wish list for quite awhile. Thanks Rose, for the gift card, which, when added to 30% off, put me over the edge!
So here's the thing. I believe I will send back the white dress. I do not really need two summer dresses. I am wondering if I will see something else in the next couple of months that I will like better. Or conversely, is this so fabulous on me that I ought to keep it? Thoughts?
Since it has been so long since I have bought and shown any clothing I am quite in a dither!
Thanks in advance and have a great day! Stay Safe out there!
