I’ll See You Later


I’ve had some other priorities come up that I need to focus on, so I need to take a little break from blogging.

I’m not sure when I’ll be back, but this isn’t goodbye forever! Thanks for the support over the past few months. Feel free to e-mail me if you have questions.



Review: Finds from J.Crew

Above, I’m wearing two of my most recent tall purchases from J.Crew. I had to order them online since J.Crew rarely carries tall sizes in store (so lame!).

  • The J.Crew Tall Midrise Toothpick Jean in Carbon jeans (size 29T) have a 33″ inseam, and are actually a bit too long on me. I always forget that skinny jeans don’t need to be worn as long as a flared or trouser jean. Skinny jeans should just about graze your ankles. You can see on me that the extra length makes the jeans too baggy. Other than the length, I love the dark wash and slight stretch to the fabric. Additionally, the midrise length is perfectly comfortable.
  • At 29″ long, the J.Crew Tall Blythe Blouse in Silk is about 2″ longer than the regular size. The extra length makes it versatile enough to tuck into skirts and wear over pants. I ordered a size 6T and it fits perfectly. I love buttoning it all the way up and adding a statement necklace on top.
