J Crew patchwork-striped t-shirt (SU16, F1456, $55) runs XXXS – XL. Color choices are cobalt navy multi (CNM) and red ivory multi (RIM).
5.25.16 – cut to $39.99
Size S – cobalt navy multi – I forgot to note, but I think this is a size S. Note the slight boatneck and the bracelet sleeve. For size reference I’m 5’0″, 34DD. Pretty standard shape and fit. The pattern is what’s unique. The cotton is isn’t thin, so it should hold its shape.
Leave it to J. Crew to figure out a way to continue to feed the stripe fever. This one isn’t a must-have for me, but I give both shades a thumbsup.

J Crew gingham scarf (SU16, F2939, $59.50). Color choices are emerald blue (EBL), navy ivory (NIV) and red burgundy (RBU). 68% wool, 31% cotton. Made in Italy.
emerald blue – I tried this on just to share pics. I didn’t think I’d want gingham wrapped around my neck, but I liked it. I think J. Crew always ropes me in with the glorious shades of colors they produce.
red burgundy -This one made me think of late spring and early fall. Fall came to mind, first. The fabric texture is crinkly, like it looks. The fabric is lightweight, but not a sheer, gauzy feel. I can’t see wearing it in warm summer days. Although it might be perfect for offices and other indoor areas where A/C rules the climate.

* Midi skirt in ornate lace (SP16, $128) – The navy is the skirt version of the dress (reviewed below). I tried on the white, sz 6. Another one where the scale doesn’t work on a petite frame. TTS, though. It’s a great, lightweight skirt. Should take you from the warmer spring months to early summer. There’s a circle detail at the hem that I like. Thumbsup.

* Short-sleeve popover in white Irish linen – The long sleeve version of this blouse has fit very tts in the past. I wear 8P and tried on a 10P to get the slouchy look the model has. As with all 10P, once I get to that size the proportions simply don’t work. One issue this blouse has is there are no shoulder seams. The top extends from the neck down without seams to end the shoulder width and begin the sleeve. I wonder if this is a Somsack design because the body is boxy and the overall cut reminds me of Madewell. I would stick to your usual J. Crew blouse size. The linen is nice. Didn’t feel scratchy to me. Sidethumb.
