OOTD 5/3/2012 - Some Of My Favorite Things


J Crew Tippi in Stripe Linen - Size XS
J Crew Cafe Capri in Warm Jade - Size 2
J Crew Crystal Frog Necklace
J Crew Viv Leopard Flats


Today is an outfit of favorites...I love the tippi, the new cafe capris and the viv flats. (I have multiples of them all.  :o))

The tippi is a classically styled sweater that can go from the office to an evening out.  This one is linen but the wool ones are equally as fabulous.

The new cafe capris have an updated silhouette with a more tapered leg than its predecessor, the classic cafe capri.  I had to size down in these.  Caveat...I have no butt or hips to speak of, so if you have that sort of figure, you might want to consider sizing down.  They tend to stretch out and I didn't want a saggy, baggy bum! 

And the vivs....Gorgeous in every way!  I love the pointed toe...it lends a classic but yet modern feel to these adorable, go with anything flats.

So, there you have it...just a FEW of my favorite things.

  1. I love all your favorites! I own everything, but not any Tippi yet! I never tried xs, only small in store and I feltmok. I agree with the new cafe capris (love) I size down, got the petite (4) version for the first time, but I prefer the regular length that doesn't look capris on me at all, I'm 5' tall :-P
    You look gorgeos! I'll have to copy- cat this look! :D

    1. My vibrant flame tippi is a small and this one and my navy one is an xs...the downsizing seems to get rid of some of the extra material in the waist area.
      Thanks Andrea....can't wait to see your recreation! :o)

  3. I just got the cafe capri today and am loving it. Still haven't tried the Tippi. Want to see it next time I'm in store. Do they wrinkle easily?
