OOTD: Trying New Things + J. Crew Extra 30% Off Sale

February 23, 2011

I recently saw Extra Petite (another look here) and Petite Little Girl wear their cardigans tucked into a skirt and I thought that was such an innovative idea. I finally decided to give it a try today.

I think it works well when the skirt has volume but I remain suspicious that my pencil skirts will conceal the layers underneath.

Tank: Abercromie & Fitch (high school old)
Cardigan: Ann Taylor Solid Merino V-Neck Cardigan
Skirt: H&M (apparently on sale for $7/$10!)

And after much thought I have decided to give in and order the J. Crew Double Serge Pencil Skirt (see it on Callandra, Kileen, a.fashion.deliberation and Jean). I got it in vintage wisteria (size 00) and bronzed ochre (size 00P). Since they are on sale I suppose it's only fair that I shell out for alterations. I am praying that the 00 will only require a hem.

Use code AYC93K for 30% off and free shipping on $100+. The code is courtesy of J.Crew Aficionada.

  1. Oh wow. I love that color combination. I want that skirt so badly. It's been a while so I highly doubt my local stores still have it. I am looking forward to see the JCrew skirt on you. I really want it but it's still out of my price range :(

  2. Extra 30% off on JCrew?! Yaaay, I'm madly clicking around their site now.
    Boo, H&M is 1.5 hr away from my house but I really want that peach skirt that you have especially if there is a great deal going on. Loving the color palette in your outfit, purple and peach really looks nice on ya.

  3. elle-- love your outfit. i been on the look out for that skirt for quite sometime and haven't seen it. :(

    can't wait to see the jcrew skirt on you. i love the colors that jcrew has to offer!

    the comment about twitter. sounds too dangerous! i would be on the phone all the time. my bf would hate me for it. lol

  4. @Ping twitter isn't too bad! I think it'll be easier than you think to control how much time you spend on it. :)

    @Banhannas haha, uh oh Hanna! I think this peach skirt is gorgeous and keep hoping that I can find another one at the discounted price but no such luck. :(

    @PetiteLittleGirl I keep checking on those J. Crew skirts and knowing that there's a chance they'll not fit right but at 30% off I just can't wait any longer. :(

  5. Wonderful look, as usual great.



  6. Love this look on you. And the pastels are so springy - makes me think of better weather!

  7. You really know how to put together clothes well ^^ Great deals!

  8. Elle - Based on your measurements, I think we are the same size (except you are bustier than me). I've tried the JCrew skirt in 00P and it hangs slightly below my waist and the hem hit right at the knee. I'm not exactly sure anymore, but I remember thinking I would need to get it hemmed.


  9. i love the color combination here and the outfit looks really nice with the cardigan tucked into the skirt. i think it actually really works with slimmer pencil skirts! it makes you look very streamlined and slim.

    and i can't wait to see the J. Crew double serge skirts on you!! how exciting! :)

    cute and little
    come join the Color Brigade!

  10. Love this outfit...I haven't tried tucking in a cardi yet, but then again I'm a bit curvier so we'll see how it goes ;) Can't wait to see your JCrew skirts (and your fabulous way of styling them)!

  11. The skirt looks soo pretty on you!

  12. I'm loving the colour combination. The look is so soft and tucking the cardi in works so well.
