Navy Stripes

This set features one of my own outfits that I will be wearing this spring. I just love the look of navy and white together. The color combination is clean and fresh...perfect for the current season, as well as into summer. :)

The Details:

J.Crew Perfect-fit Stripe Open Crewneck Tee. This is currently 20% off with Free Shipping on the J.Crew website. I love it...the fabric is substantial and the fit is flattering. It's worth full-price, IMHO, and definitely worth the current sale price. Btw, it also comes in 2 other colors that are also really pretty. Similar striped tees here and here.

J.Crew Jackie Cardigan in Navy. Similar here and here.

Old Navy *The Weekend* Jeans in Bright White. (Old Navy is offering an extra 15% off with code ONSPRING at checkout for today and tomorrow). Similar here and here.

Pearl Drop Earrings purchased at Macy's last year. Similar here and here.

J.Crew Pearl Garden Bracelet. Similar here, here and here.

Aviator Sunglasses, similar here and here.

J.Crew Large Metallic Thompson Tote in Gold. Similar here (in Gold) and here.

Kork Ease *Bette* Wedge Sandal in Natural. Similar here and here in Natural.

**As I already mentioned above, J.Crew is offering 20% off and FREE SHIPPING on their tees and knits until 4.12.10. I think there are several cute ones to consider such as this, this, and this one, too. (I especially like it in the Pale Lilac color.)

I have this one in Dark Charcoal and Sheer Lilac. The fit on this is nice and it's definitely worth the sale price. I like that it comfortably *dresses up* jeans, chinos, and shorts without being too *over the top*.

For a great basic at a nice price consider this v-neck tee, this scoopneck tee, or this tank (which is perfect under cardigans, blazers, or even on it's own now that the weather is warming up).

Have a beautiful and blessed day!



  1. I have my eye on the Morning Glory tee, I wonder how neon the yellow is?

    I agree navy and white is such a classic look that spans the seasons.

  2. super cute...I love the nautical look. classic and simple!

  3. I'm loving stripes these days since it makes my outfit much more interesting. I find perfect fit shirts well made and less prone to holes but they are a bit snug on my tummy which is not my best feature. :-P

  4. I love navy and white, so fresh and crisp! Nice look today FFM! Have a lovely day!

  5. Hi FFM! How does the striped tee run? I took a small in this year's bateau t-shirt.

  6. Hi Ladies! Thank you so much for stopping by to comment today! :)

    casual-crew: I would guess that the yellow is very neon, as in highlighter pen yellow.

    Thank you jen! :)

    jcrewphd: I agree about the quality of the perfect fit shirts. They definitely seem to outlast the graphic, slub, and embellished tees.

    Thank you Kathy! :)

    The Marty Party: I would say it's running TTS. I purchased my *normal* XSmall and it is nicely fitted, without being too tight.

  7. I am definitely loving stripes for this season, they are so classic. I love Cameron's hairstyle in that photo!

  8. ffm just wanted to let you know, when I called JC to cancel the Morning Glory tee because I did not want to order the neon yellow, the phone rep told me the tee is more like a pale Easter yellow, so I will wait for it to ship at the end of the month.

  9. Hi tres tippy! Thanks for stopping by. :) I also love Cameron's hair in the photo and try to wear mine like it quite often.

    casual-crew: That is great news on the tee! I have to say I am quite surprised, but pleased at the same time. :)

  10. I love that nautical look! You have inspired me to buy the navy/white tee, great price too!

  11. I love the navy stripes and the crisp, white pants! Great look :)
