Early birds do get the worm! I woke up unusually early today for weekend mornings and in an effort to keep noise levels down so I don’t wake up light sleepers in the house I decided to do some shopping/browsing. I had a few items bookmarked on J.Crew because I was late to the party last time and missed things in my size. You can imagine my surprise when two blazers that I have wanted for some time popped back in stock in size 0. I added a double serge skirt that I have wanted to try for a while to make free shipping over $150. Code: VC97BT.

First up is the Rose Vines blazer that I first saw on the cover of a J. Crew catalog. I loved the summery print but decided that I wasn’t going to pay retail for it. On sale for $59.99, available in size 0 and 4.

I also bought the chambray schoolboy blazer in size P0. Now on sale for $49.99.

Lastly, the Stretch Double-Serge Pencil Skirt in Abyss Blue, size 00. The author of A Bigger Closet reviewed this skirt and it looks beautiful on her. I think this could be a great work skirt. ABC suggest that the “stretch” is more appropriate for the fall while the Double Serge Pencil Skirt is more winter-friendly. Sydney at Petite Gorgeous reviewed it and they look incredible on her.

I realize these blazers aren’t exactly appropriate for the fall/winter but I think I’ll get some wear out of them next Spring. I justified the purchases to myself with: these are “work clothes.”
