J. Crew Postcard Prints

Everyday Outfits, My Style

J. Crew Postcard Print Skirt & Top, J. Crew Bow Top, NYC Fashion Blogger, Central Park{J. CREW Postcard Print Top & Skirt, PRADA Sunglasses, H&M Tassel Earrings and Bow Sandals}

When J. Crew rolled out this postcard print, I just knew I had to have it. I took a gamble and waited a week or two for a sale to crop up (because let’s face it, who really pays full price at J. Crew?), and my patience paid off when I scored this top on the cheap! I didn’t get so lucky with the skirt as it sold out before going on sale, but luckily good old Nordie’s came through in a pinch. The two pieces together make a pretty bold statement, and I got tons of compliments while taking these photos. But you can definitely tone down the look by wearing them separately.

About the Fit:
Both the top and skirt fit true-to-size. The top is made of a substantial stretchy cotton and is a great length for wearing both tucked and untucked. Crew necks can be tricky if you have a larger bust (I usually opt for v-necks and scoop necks), but this tee was just too cute to pass up. The skirt hits right below the knee on my 5’7″ frame, and it also comes in petite (and tall) sizing.

Bows on Top

90% of the time if you see me wearing head-to-toe black and white, it’s because I was in a rush to get ready that morning. It’s a foolproof style hack that never lets me down. I threw some fun into the mix this go ’round with a fabulous statement-making Club Monaco top. I fell completely in love with it when I spied it on the clearance rack and have been tempted to go back for the stripe version as well. The bow on the shoulder gives just the right feminine touch to finish off the look.

Because I had a client meeting to go to earlier in the day, I tossed on this contrast trim cardigan that I picked up from the Zara clearance sale a while back. It’s sold out now, but I found a really great dupe at Target.

About the Fit:
This relaxed-fit top is made from a stretchy knit with lots of give, so it’s hard to go wrong with this one. Just get a great strapless bra (this one gets a gold star), and you’re good to go.  The length is also perfect for wearing both tucked and untucked.

Look for Less: Cult Gaia Ark Bag Dupe{This is the real deal Cult Gaia Ark Bag that I purchased earlier this season (also worn here and here)}

Because your girl is always looking out for you, I just had to pass this info along…

The Cult Gaia Ark Bag has been the ultimate status symbol for fashion gals for the past two summers and for good reason. It’s super-chic, and it comes in at a relatively wallet-friendly price-point as far as IT bags go. After much hemming and hawing, I finally pulled the trigger earlier this season and bought one for myself. It was on back-order, and took almost two months to arrive, and I couldn’t have been happier when it did… at least I thought that was the case at the time. Well because my bargain-hunting knows no bounds, I was poking around online and found some pretty cool dupes on Etsy for even cheaper – as in $50 a pop!

‘Lo and Behold…

While I’m still completely in love with my pricier version, I’d be lying if I didn’t acknowledge that I kinda wish I had waited and gotten the cheaper one. Normally, I wouldn’t advocate blatant designer ripoffs, but the Cult Gaia Ark bag gets a pass because the original design is actually based off a vintage Japanese picnic basket.

So if you were previously on the fence about jumping on to this bandwagon due to pricing, you’re officially OUT of excuses, lol.
