Did You Get Yours Yet?

I am talking about the new J. Crew catalog.
Mine came in the mail yesterday.  I have to admit my favorite thing about the catalog is to see how they style the clothes.  In my opinion, they are brilliant at styling clothing!
I loved all the pretty spring colors and fabrics and I am so ready to ditch these 30 winter items I have been wearing.
Did you see the fabulous blue sequin shorts?  If only I were 25 years younger and a couple of inches taller. I will be copying the sequin tank look they were sporting with shorts though.
What is your favorite catalog to get and why?
So, I pulled out the plum cords for one last time this season.
I paired the pink shirt and the gray cardi with it.
I really hope I haven't worn this before. 
I have on my knee high gray boots
and 
let me tell you that NOT tucking the cords into the boots was a physical challenge!
I will also tell  you that I was having a very bad hair day. 
Mostly because I was running late all day and just didn't take the time to do anything about it.
 
I also want to thank everyone that commented about their terrible memories. 
You all made me feel so much better.

I like your hair this way. It looks whimsical and care-free.

I'm with you on the J Crew catalog. I love the way they style too. I don't buy many of their clothes though. They don't fit me very well. Apparently, they use fit models with sticks for legs. I have more like tree trunks. Oh well, I find my clothes elsewhere and then I use the styling inspiration from the J Crew catalog.

xo,

The pink blouse looks great. Of course you always look good in pink. I have been craving some pink this year. Got to look around.

Why don't I get the J Crew catalog?!

I finally put the cords into the other closet. I am really hoping not to need them anymore this year.
