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.
