My pants are actually the Cotton Matting wide leg pants from J.Crew last year in the same color. My earrings are from Nordstrom Rack, and are the same as my gold Fireball earrings...THANK YOU AnneG. for sending them to me! :) My bag is a similar Kathy Van Zeeland, but not the one shown. My white scarf was found at TJ Maxx for $7.99.

  1. So am I to gather it is another cold day in Florida? Last Tuesday was such a surprise for our family...windy and cold. Universal Studios made A Lot of money I am sure from all the last minute jacket purchases. (We had brought ours, thank goodness.)

    This is a very nice outfit...I bet you look very cute!

  2. I love how you pair the silver with denim. Very nice. I will be trying it also. Oh, the havona outfit was beautiful. I know you were drop dead gorgeous. How many compliments did you get? (smile)

  3. FFM,

    Did you find the Havona true to size? I am trying to decide between the 6 and the 8 and I do have the measurements from CS. Thanks for any advice. I am thinking of going with the 6 due to the actual bust measurement...

  4. Hi Girls! Thank you so much! :)

    Dina: It isn't really that cool here, but I don't let that stop me from wearing cardigans or jackets, especially when I have on a tank top. As you know, most places here are air conditioned, and it can get quite chilly indoors, so I always carry a cardi or jacket with me just in case. :)

    Patina: The denim jacket actually has silver buttons, so the silver jewelry looks really nice. I did receive a ton of compliments on the Havona, and felt extra fabulous in it. ;)

    Heidi: Thank you...are you feeling well rested after your break? The pics were amazing!

  5. Hi Anon@4:12! I normally wear a 0 or 2 in J.Crew camis and tanks, and a 2 or 4 in J.Crew jackets... my Havona is a size 0 and it fits perfectly. It isn't at all billowy through the bodice like the Elizabeth, and looks great tucked in, as well as left out. I would think the 6 should be ok for you if the J.Crew bust measurements for it are your size. I actually ordered both the 0 and 2 with a free shipping code, but never even tried on the 2 because the 0 fit perfectly, and it was the first size I tried on. Do you have the option to order both and then return the one that doesn't work out?

  6. Thanks for your opinon. I am now thinking that I am leaning towards the 8 b/c bit bigger would be better than too small. My bust measures 37.5 and the 6 measures 38.5 and the 8 39.5....I go between both sizes in camis as well. Living overseas I need to order just one b/c I really cannot return for quite a while...

  7. PS

    Correction
    Bust on the 6 is 39.5 and on the 8 it is 40.5

    Hmmm....maybe the 6 afterall...

  8. I just measured my bust while wearing the same bra that I wore with the Havona and the tape says 36 inches and the 0 fit me perfectly...I don't think you should size up, especially if the 8 is 40.5.

  9. FFM,

    Thanks for measuring yourself.

    That is what I was thinking. Go with the 6...

  10. Oh no problem at all! I know how frustrating the J.Crew sizing is, so I want to give you as much accurate information as I possibly can. I think Slastena got the size 4 and she is a 36DD, I believe. Did you happen to ask CS the measurements on the size 4?

  11. The smallest size left in the Havona is the 6. I am going to measure myself with a t back or strapless bra on! I have no idea why I didn't think of that! Both of mine are padded. Normally, I do not wear a padded bra so maybe that is why I didn't think of it. Thanks again, FFM for our help:)
