Today I have reviews of couple of J.Crew items: stripe silk cami and not-yet-online white polka button front shirt.
|Stripe silk cami|
|with scout chinos and Sperry Topsiders|
I am wearing Sperry topsiders in size 8 (half size down from most J.Crew shoes). I am not crazy about the look of them but they are probably most comfortable non-sneaker shoes I own.

I do like the small polka dots, I think they are very flattering, especially if you look good in white. I sized up to an 8, which I often do in thicker shirts because they don;t drape so well and this way I have more styling options. The shoulders are a little wide in 8 but a 6 would have pulled across the chest.
***And here is my outfit from my recent trip to Banana Republic. You may remember that I was trying on this Trina Turk skirt (see my review HERE) and I liked it a lot but did not want to pay full price. I was looking for a summer skirt in this color. Last year I bought a J.Crew Dori skirt but in the end I decided I did not like the button front style and it was too short on me. Plus, Banana skirt is machine washable, even if it is fully lined, great plus for me!

How do you like American Girl doll 'hanging out' with us. She was bored and hot and wanted to go inside.

Then I spotted a Pia ponte top that I liked when it first came out but it was $49.99 which I did not want to pay. It was marked at $13.99 and with additional percentages off t came down to about $7. I like this top. It is nicely fitted and works well untucked. I took size 8 in it, which is larger of my two sizes in BR numerically sized tops.
I was a happy camper in my $25 new outfit.
That's all folks!

Do you like the striped cami or the new polka dot shirt?
Did you buy anything from Banana on recent sales?
Please share, it would be no fun without you!!!
