Ever since my first purchase of the J. Crew double serge wool skirt last year, I've been in love with J. Crew skirts.  Not only are the beautiful colors right up my alley, but the construction of the skirt is always very well done and lends itself easily to multiple wears over time.  I picked up this felted wool mini skirt a couple weeks ago when J. Crew had a 30% off sale.

While it is still quite a bit of money to pay for a simple skirt, I have no doubt that this skirt will get it's worth in wear.  And for those wondering, the skirt actually still is quite bit roomy as-is in the tummy area, so hopefully I can even keep on wearing it for a good majority of the next 9 months.  :)  My only complaint is that the material does wrinkle a bit more easily than my previous J. Crew skirts -- these pictures were taken at the end of a long workday {morning sickness is no joke} and you can tell how wrinkly they became after a long day of sitting...  Given how much I love this skirt though, I might just consider carrying some Febreze wrinkle release with me to make up for this one minor gripe.  What do you guys think?

I love JCrew skirts too, but haven't been able to get myself to shell out that much money for them yet. Sigh. One day :)

i've noticed also that i feel A LOT better after i have something to eat in the mornings (even if i don't think i can keep it down at first). thanks so much for the tip!

Kileen said... [Reply]

thanks! i've had to change it up so that i'm taking pictures in the afternoon when I get off of work. the nausea in the morning is usually too much... hopefully this new plan will work out!

That's my favorite J.Crew skirt color! I have the same problem with them wrinkling. And the ones I want never come in petite!  

I hope your morning sickness lets up soon. One of my friends swore by ginger tea during her pregnancy. 

Kileen said... [Reply]

i was just reading about ginger tea! i'm gonna have to try that now. thank you!

Sheesh, Khatu looks amazing!!!

I love that sweater tucked into your skirt Kileen, I can't wait to see how your style will evolve as your little tummy grows :)

Kileen said... [Reply]

Khatu seriously looks incredible right?!

And hopefully my tummy won't be noticeable for several more weeks...these past couple of days I have felt super bloated though. Not fun. :(

jodi said... [Reply]
