My J. Crew bathing suits arrived yesterday from the swim sale and here’s my recap. I ordered 4 whole pieces and two are going back. I’m keeping this one and this one (running true to size). I am sending the ruffle pique and scalloped one shoulder back because they are too long in the toro. The suits are really cute but running big and a better fit for someone who is taller then me (I’m 5’3).

Everlane news….they just launched their first sneaker. The Trainer is available on-line and comes in several different colors. Click here to check it out.

Well Made

I had a belated birthday lunch at Élephante yesterday which is right around the corner from Madewell. I stopped in to try on a pair of high rise crop jeans that just arrived on-line and in stores. I love the fit and wash (perfect for Spring) of these new Madewell jeans. While I was there I stumbled upon the jean skirt in the below pic. It’s an A-line fit with button front detailing which is extremely flattering at the waist. They also got in this cute boho maxi which looks great paired with these white Vans, and canvas crossbody bag.
