Husby hated the outfit (well ... maybe hate is too strong a sentiment, but he didn't like it). I pouted but insisted on wearing as is while muttering "you just don't get it" and went off to work where a male colleague asked "who dressed you today?"
The capri pants are a favorite and came to me via charge-send sale priced plus 30% off from a B&M in Connecticut thanks to a tip from MB on the JCA post. I can understand why they received a lot of blog love.
The fabric is 98% cotton with 2% spandex in a weight heavy enough to stay crisp looking. The material has a sensual sateen finish that's a nice surprise to the touch. The pants seem to give a longer, slimmer silhouette than the other capris I have from JC.
soft-wash denim shirt (to continue making my way through the denim/chambray shirt reviews). I'm wearing the XXS petite and as you can see, it's good for those looking for a more fitted look.
