Ombre Stripes

7.16.2013

Top: J Crew // Leggings: PacSun (Similar here) // Boots: Target (Old) // Arrow Cuff: Fifth & Mae // Bracelets, Rings & Necklace: Kohl's // Sunnies: Old Navy //
 
 
Can you believe this is my first time EVER ordering something from J Crew?! You see, I'm the kind of girl that doesn't spend a lot of money on one piece of clothing (because why spend $100 on one thing when you can get 5-6 things for that price?!). I've always been that way. But when I heard they were doing an additional 40% off clearance, I knew I had to at least take a look. So I did, and I ended up getting a steal of a deal. I got 4 tops for just over $70! Okay, compared to my Savers finds, that's not that good of a deal, but for J CREW, that's an amazing deal!
 
This top seriously has two of my favorite things--ombre & stripes. What more can you ask for?! I love that the black stripes fade to gray. It adds a little extra something to it. Welp, now that I conquered J Crew, it's on to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale... haha. Thanks for reading! xo

  7. I feel the same way about buying more expensive items! I am so used to thrift shopping now and the amazing deals I can get for about 20 bucks, it kind of has warped my view! That said, there is totally something said about getting something that's actually new in the mail once in awhile, this striped top is adorable and I LOVE it with the printed leggings!
    Hope you're having a great day!
