Yes, totally late to the party on this one, sure. J Crew Caprese Tunic (#26796, orig $35, curr $14.99). Would have been nice if I'd been blogging on this one over the summer, eh?
That is one of those outfits (chambray top + white jeans) that works with pretty much any set of accessories you want to throw at it - metallic, bright, pastel, neutral, you name it. That day (I think the kiddies & I met Dina & her kiddies to lunch & shop a bit), I chose heeled sandals and a chunky bracelet.
Next outfit (middle pic), I went with black Minnies (Tall, size 8), and a gray cami. For chillier weather, I could have easily added a cardi. I'm pretty sure it was hot that day, so in the chambray top and black ankle pants, I felt cool and seasonally appropriate. I was headed into school for a meeting and wanted to look nice, but be comfy (then again, that's my usual dressing mantra, right?)
3 - I don't have to commute 99% of the time, so I'll just shut up now.
4 - I have cute pink rain boots for the grocery store runs.
Back to today's outfit. I guess the rain gave me the blues, though, because um yeah, that's pretty much all I'm wearing. Darker slim Chico's jeans, a navy cami, and a navy Jackie on top. I think I actually might like this a bit better if the jeans were a touch darker, but still I liked how it worked...even though I have since abandoned the flats for a pair of cozy socks.
And I think it shows the flexibility of this top - perfect for some of these fall days where it starts out chilly and then gets warm. I doubt I'll still have it out in December, but I think it will be in regular rotation for the next couple of months, and then tucked away until spring.
Now my question is - if you have the Caprese, how are you wearing it? I'd love to hear....
