Today I'm finally debuting my new Neapolitan cardigan from J.Crew. This cardigan has the distinct honor of being the first thing that I've ever purchased at J.Crew proper (i.e. not an outlet). I will fully admit that this entire outfit is inspired by Molly in Kim's Weekly Reader Outfits over at Anthroholic (see here). She paired a Neapolitan pencil skirt with the Free Flow Tank. The pencil skirt wasn't available in my size anymore (and honestly I've got way too many pencil skirts) so I spotted the cardigan on sale and pounced. I'm so glad I did because I'm really happy with this outfit!
Free Flow Tank, Anthropologie, size Large (available here)
Neapolitan Cardigan, J. Crew, size Medium (available here and on sale!)

Necklace, Banana Republic
Grand Slam Bracelet, Anthropologie

Today I'm wearing one item from each of my favorite stores (Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, and Anthropologie). I'm really loving my new cardigan too so maybe J.Crew will become my fourth favorite store! If only the world worked together as harmoniously as the various components of my outfit!
While sitting in court, one of the court officers commented that I look rather tan today and asked if I had been on vacation. I debated whether to tell him that my "tan" is in fact fake! I was pretty pleased that it fooled him because I'm always worried about looking orange or splotchy when I use a self-tanner. In the end I admitted that it was fake - should I have pretended it was real? What's the protocol, readers?
I took pictures before I used the product and will take more pictures tonight to do a review, but I have to say I'm pretty happy with this particular product so unless I wake up green tomorrow (a la Kelly Kapowski's face turning maroon after she used Screech's miracle acne cream), I think I've found a new self-tanner!
