OOTD 5.13.11 {J Crew Tie Front Cardi + F21 Vintage Floral Necklace}

Cotton Tie Front Cardi #1

This F21 necklace has little enamel (plastic?) dots in a pretty lavender which I really like against the olive/fatigue cardi.

J Crew Cotton Tie Front Cardigan in Vintage Fatigue, Old Navy Jersey Stretch Tank (these are my current fav tanks and code ONSECRET30 gets you 30% off at Old Navy through 5/18, making them $7.), F21 necklace, True Religion denim

My pics didn't come out great but this is a wonderful cardigan... you can cinch the belt and it features pockets in a woven fabric. The knit is very soft. J Crew's online pic looks very "IRL" to me and the color is closer to my close-up pic with the flash below:

Happy Wednesday!



  1. I like the delicate design of that sweet looks like one my grandmother had eons ago.
    It looks great with your grey cardigan too!

  2. OH! Thanks for posting, love this cardigan...hoping to get it soon:) is this a recent F21 necklace? if so, i am running there to see if they have any in my store--love it!!!!! did you get a small, in the cardigan, btw?

  3. hostess & mommaofonediva - thanks for stopping by!
    mrs.a - Thanks! I bought maybe 3-4 weeks ago... Yes, the cardi is my usual small.

  4. I love your blog, but it's bad for my pocket book! :-) I want the Pippa bag, the mariners stripe confetti sweater, and now this cardigan! Quick question on the ON tank... I find that tanks or camis w/out adjustable straps often tend to hit me a little lower in the neckline than I prefer. How's this one in that regard? Looks fine in your pictures, so maybe I should give this one a try. Thanks for your fun posts!

  5. I love your whole look!! Fab!

  6. Real Working Mom of OC - Thank you so much! I have these tanks in both small and medium and I find the neckline just right. I don't like them too low cut either and this one has enough coverage for me -- even leaning forward they are fine.
    Peggy - Thanks!

  7. Beautiful cardi! Does it fit TTS?

  8. Hi Rose! Yes, I'd say TTS. Mine is a small.

  9. I love the scent you're wearing too! :)

    How is the PNW today? I miss it sooooooo....


  10. lottie - thanks! that and Acqua di Parma are my favorites :) It has been so sunny and pretty here the past couple days... we are supposed to hit 70 today :) but then back to gray showers and 60s for the next week and a half.
