They do have a low waist, but not too much - and work just fine with the bf tissue tee. I sparkled it up a bit with some layered necklaces, including my fireball, and some gold flats. I am really envisioning these pants with some of my navy tops or the Jaspe sweatshirt as well. And definitely some of the cream sweaters in the fall. Of course, I have to roll them up since the 32" inseam is just not long enough, but I may order a pair in another color in tall if ON has another good shipping deal.

And then skip right to today's outfit, with the graphic tee and matchsticks that I got at the J Crew outlet this weekend. Well first, I'll be honest, I didn't take my camera this weekend, so I don't have pics. But, I would like to note that (1) - Saturday AM - you've already seen pics of the dress, (2) I'm sure I'll wear the molten metallic with white jeans again soon and promise to post pics then, and (3) you've seen the Library ad nauseum on me and seriously, I just paired with a white tee & jeans, how much more basic can you get? It was divinely comfy for travel, though!
Quick Recap of weekend: Left Saturday early, got to Lansdowne and did early checkin, headed to spa for a few lazy hours, chilled out in the room for a while, got dolled up for dinner, ate out, back at the bar for a nightcap (mine was chamomile tea, how sad is that?), and then crashed. On to Sunday, which started about 2:30 am when we had to call security to break up the party in the room next door - oh no, we're "those" people I hated when I was younger. Fuddy duddy me. More sleep, then up, breakfast, outlets, lunch and home.
Ok, so the outlets...
First I hit Gap to get sweatshirts for the kids. There I found a pair of shorts that are a dead ringer for the J Crew poplin cargo short (#15018, $49.50). The Gap outlet pair was $29.99, less 20%, so $24. I got them in a British khaki (and nabbed the JC pic for Polyvore when I got home). They are so lightweight, they will be perfect for summer.
Next I went to J Crew. They had a lot of polos (on sale), a lot of Jackies. They had some very cute necklaces, including quite a few colors of the stone bead ribbon necklace look alike. Many of the dresses were 50% off. Skirts were marked down too. I tried on a lot of things, but only ended up with 2 things for myself, both of which I am wearing at left. On top, the yellow (color=CLI, any idea? cool limoncello?) graphic tee with gray fleur de lis and script "C'est la vie". I love the tee - can't wait to wear it with the navy Nicky skirt, my white gauze-y skirt, white jeans, light khakis...ok, I think I just covered most of my summer bottoms wardrobe. And I can't wait to pair it with my gray cardis. Tee was $29.50, less 40% graphic tees, so under $18. I also got, are you ready for it, those of you who are sick and tired of seeing me in the same jeans?, a pair of the matchsticks, ankle length. They were on sale for $39.99 and I figured this was a good way to see if I really would love them and wear them. So far, so good. I think my sister is impressed that I finally got a pair of skinny-ish jeans!
And as I was standing near the checkout, my eyes strayed over to the mens section and there I saw it... a dark olive-brown tee with the word "BEER" in white. Immediately thought of hubby and went over to check it out. He looks so good in that color! I picked it up and saw the entire graphic which included "Southport" at the bottom - and that's where his parents live now, so I was sold! Hubby now has his first piece of J Crew wear. I don't think he's quite as excited about it as I am.
And that was basically it for the outlet shopping. I got 3 things that I can really use that will incorporate quite nicely into my wardrobe. And put back many more things that I just didn't need.
