OOTD and some J.Crew Reviews

So First off, here is a polyvore and real life picture of what I wore today. This look is basically right from the look that was styled by FFM here. I saw this polyvore and LOVED it! So I figured I had to try it out for myself. I don't have all of the accessories, but I liked the way it looked with them so I put them in my polyvore too. So Thank you FFM for the awesome inspiration!!

Now onto my trip to the J.Crew Store today. So I tried out using the store's personal shopper, and I must say, I was pretty disappointed. I just felt like she didn't actually take the time to help me out. I don't know if it was because I was working from a list that I was trying stuff on for (birthday) or because I wasn't planning on buying anything today, but that should matter, and I was kind of annoyed that I didn't get the attention I thought I should have. I figured I would give it one more shot, and if its like this again, I probably won't use her again.

Anyways, on to the good stuff. So I pretty much loved everything I tried on. I thought it all worked out great so that was super exciting :-) All of these things are from my previous post here, so see there for links.

Stripe Mandarin Tee (s) - This was a size small, and I must say, I was quite happy with this piece. It was potentially my favorite thing I tried on today, which was a surprise. 

Boathouse Shirtdress (4) - LOVED this one as well. As others have mentioned, it was ridiculously comfy. I can see this becoming one of my go-to pieces this summer. This dress runs a bit big, so I sized down from my usual J.Crew dress size.

Vivette Dress (6)- So this dress I have on my list in the warm buttercup color but they only had in the provence pink, which I actually thought looked very nice, but felt like it potentially washed me out a tad. I loved the ruching on the bodice. It was very flatting in my opinion.

Delaney Eyelet dress (6) - This was a nice simple summer dress. Simple as that. Really liked the pattern on the bottom of the dress.

Lace-over tank (XS) - I tried this on in ivory. I thought it ran big, I had to size down to an XS, although the small would have worked, it was a little baggier than I liked. This is the small followed by the XS for comparison.

Dorrie skirt (6)- I loved this one too :-) Adorable bright vibrant color. Very comfy. I do wish there was an easier way to put in on than unbuttoning the buttons in the front. That to me was a tad annoying.

So what do you think? Overall, I was VERY happy with my selections, and can't wait for my birthday to get some of this great stuff!

Have a great day!

XOXO Jennifer


  1. You look fantastic in your OOTD Jennifer! I also love how everything you tried on looks on you. Have you decided what your getting for sure? I vote for the Dorrie is adorable on you! :)

  2. Thanks! I leave the decision making up to my mom on this one, but she liked everything I tried on as well, so we will see!

    Thanks so much for the inspiration for this outfit!

  3. I loved the Dorrie as well :-) this was one of my must haves!

  4. I love the Vivette on you. In that color. The pale pink tones are close to nude on you, but I love that look. It looks dressy. If that's the case, while everyone else is in black, you'd look very different.
