We had lunch together and we finished it with nice frozen margaritas. It was a lot of fun. I was not supposed to shop for myself, but after we parted, I decided to stop by J.Crew and try some things on. I did it mainly for this blog, as I feel totally shopped out at this moment.
This was in a different mall from the two I usually frequent and it was fun to be more anonymous and not have all the SAs greet me by my first name.
I did not have much time and I was tired from already shopping for a few hours and a little giddy from my drink. I also felt like I have already tried everything in the store, but I managed to select a few things.
I tried this top before in red (see it HERE) and I liked it a lot. I wanted to try the safari cat print mainly because it is on sale and I thought some of you may be considering it. Also see it HERE on Gigi.
I do like the fabric and the shape of this top. It is very nice for summer, and the colors of the safari cat are very flattering and easy to pair with any color. I would treat it as a neutral. Of course it maybe too much of an animal print for some of you, but I think the print is rather subtle, at least as far as animal prints go.
I took size 6 in this top and I had plenty of room. I have been sizing up to 8 in a lot of tops this year, so I would say this one runs big. Specifically, it is not as big in the hips but there is plenty of room in the chest.
I am obsessed with white recently and I have been trying white everything every chance I get. I don't know why, because I certainly have enough white in my closet for several summers ahead. But on Memorial weekend we went to the beach and I was wearing all white outfit and both my shirt and shorts got awfully stained and ruined by the sunscreen. After I checked it out on the Internet it seems to be common occurrence, but it was a first time it actually happened to me and I was really upset about it.
I was not successful in getting the stains out, so please let me know if you know the trick. The stains were not visible until I put the clothes in the washer, apparently there is something in the water/detergent that activated them.
So anyway, this is my excuse for trying on more white. Hey, any reason is good, lol.

I really liked the look and they were very comfortable. If I really needed a pair of white capris ( I don't, I don't ) I would be happy to buy them (better yet with some discount).
The difference between Small and Medium was minimal and it was still not very slouchy in size M and it did not ave too much room in the hips so I would say it runs rather small and I would recommend you go with your bigger size or size up, unless you are after fitted look.
Also, see it HERE on Ema.
That's all folks!
