Well, we got Em off to camp (I mean college).
The Convocation felt like I was in a Harry Potter movie. All the professors were dressed in their robes, hats, scarf thingies (?).
They did a good job. By the time it was time to leave...you were ready to leave.
On arrival home, I had a few packages waiting for me.
First J Crew. Tyler needed pants and I just HAD to throw something in there for myself.
Drapey Crepe Henley Tunic, Size 10, Hammock Green
On Model in Bright Cerise:
Love the color. The product shot on the website is accurate.
Darts at chest and a little detail stitch around arm.
The placket with the button holes are sewn together between the holes so it lays flat.
Back of shirt/tunic.
Did not like the sleeves rolled up. Did not try the J Crew sleeve roll.
Yep, there's my light switch! Anyway, sleeves are long.
Just felt this was a bit too big for me. Not sure an 8 would work but may try.
Covers the bum. Yes I have two polka dotted scarves. Realized that after I bought the second one. I know someone has done this too. Shhh.
This is a very thick material and a bit oversized. I was not expecting the heaviness of this shirt. I could only wear in fall and winter. I am always a 10 in tops like this because of my square shoulders and girls, but felt a bit swallowed by this. I do love the look just not the feel.
Not really shopped here but I really want a tweed tee and J Crew's just didn't work out for me.
Rhyme Los Angeles Eddie Tweed Blouse Size Large, Multi
Ok, I am looking a bit boxy with the pants. Sorry I was too lazy to change. Note to self...wear with straight leg pants.
I was afraid it would read a bit pink but the tweed colors are right up my alley. This is a stiff shirt with no movement and I love it. No, it is not soft nor lined. But I did NOT find the material to be scratchy or bothersome in any way.
Keyhole back. The button is facing in and the loop is elastic. I can get this over my egg head without having to undo. Getting it on is easy. Getting it off is a bit harder. It gets a bit stuck at the shoulders.
I even made a Polyvore page with it :) I am creative like that :()
The sweater in the middle I ordered from Boden, thanks Tiffany Rose for letting me know about that site. It came but was too big so I am waiting for its replacement.
I am slowly settling back in my EMPTY house. This is the longest week ever!
