OOTD 2/22/2012 - Checks and Cherry

You've heard me say it before...and I'm not the only one who has said it....many of my other JCA compadres share my same compulsion to buy in multiples when they find a good thing.  Instyle magazine named it was one of their Best 50 Fashion Tips of All Time...Think In Multiples. 

So that's exactly what I did with J Crew's Wool Cafe Capris. (I now have maraschino cherry, yacht blue and the houndstooth wool tweed, as well.  :o))  Hey, when you find something with a flattering fit...go for it!


J Crew Cotton Check Shirt in Navy - Size 6
J Crew Featherweight Cotton Cardigan in Navy - Size S
J Crew Wool Cafe Capri in Maraschino Cherry - Size 4
LL Bean Corduroy Jacket in Navy - Size 4
J Crew Skinny Leather Belt in Glazed Hazelnut - Size S
J Crew Crystal Snowball Necklace
Tory Burch Greta Wedges

And I wore them back to back...yesterday the yacht blue, today the maraschino cherry.  I also totally stole this super cute look from Shopping with M. (see her here).  Thanks M...I love it!

One funny thing to mention, my co-workers and I went down to our company breakroom and there was a copy of the latest Family Fun magazine lying on one of the tables.  Here was the cover....
I'm dressed like a five year old boy! HaHaHa!!!  Cracked me up...my co-workers too!

  1. I ordered my first pair of scout chinos a few weeks back and now I am officially in love - I had to get them in more colors! For a gal who had sworn off cropped chinos forrevvver, this was a sartorial revelation. So I am all on board the multiples bandwagon!

    Love the punchy red with the gingham. I love how gingham for some reasons ups the "fun" in any outfit, 5yo or not, haha!

    1. Ah yes, the scout chinos...I have those in multiples too. :o) I'm actually planning to wear the khaki ones tomorrow...It's supposed to be 70 degrees here. Woo-hoo!

      Girl, I love me some gingham! Come to think of it, I have both blue and red gingham! Multiples again...I'm seeing a pattern here.

  2. Maraschino cherry is the best red J.Crew came up with for a long time. But for some reason I cannot do colorful pants. Count me in for the multiples buyers club. And funny, I also posted on this topic today.

  5. You look much cuter than the 5 year old boy on the magazine cover haha! I used to buy in multiples whenever I find something which really fits me well. But I find after I buy multiples, I tend to wear less of the subsequent purchase. Guess " first born" is always more precious and loved more.
