The Merino Pleated Skirt

The Jcrew Merino skirt. I really loved it from the first time I saw it in a store because of the pleats, stretchy and comfortable material and the longer length or and of coarse because of the color - it's not black like most of the items I own. Here are a few outfit ideas I put together with this skirt. I feel it runs TTS. I'm wearing size Medium. This skirt doesn't have any zippers, any buttons and it is lined! I found it is very easy to wear.
Picture#1. In this first picture I'm wearing this skirt with a silk Lucinda blouse in Vibrant flame.
 Picture #2. I paired it with my latest obsession Lady Lace Popover in Heather Graphite. I just looove this sweater. It's lace in fine merino yarn laid over chiffon, I don't see any resemblance to a "sweatshirt" like Jcrew refers to it on its website (at least its not the kind of sweatshirts I'm used to) and the sweater is not itchy at all.
 Picture #3. I paired merino with cashmere =) Wearing a v-neck cashmere Jcrew sweater in Heather citrus.
Picture #4. Here I'm wearing it with a Jcrew chambaray shirt and Jcrew brown leather belt.
Picture #5. And finally paired with silk Blythe blouse and a Jcrew patent leather skinny belt.

I hope you enjoyed my little fashion show =) and I hope it gave someone an idea for a new outfit!!!!
I love to read comments so please do post your thoughts! Thanks

The skirt looks so chic and fabulous on you! Love all of your pairings with it. I thought the skirt was lovely IRL, but am hoping I can catch it at a good sale price.

Thanks I actually used the cardholders 20% off on it so wasn't as bad but still costly I agree.

Hi, just came across your blog and love your reviews! I'm in Canada so its hard for me to order J Crew without reading reviews first. Your outfits look great! Possible to get your opinion on how your find the sizing for the Lucinda Blouse?

hi Lainey, I'm sorry I just saw your comment regarding Lucinda blouse. The blouse i'm wearing with this skirt is Blythe blouse which has chest pockets. I did try on Lucinda blouse as well and found the fit a bit off on me. Its cut differently in the chest and shoulders area, pleats at shoulders add volume and i found the blouse was gapping in the chest area, i tried it in my regular Jcrew tops size and it was a pass for me. I found Blythe to be more flattering but then again I'm 34C so for a smaller chested girls I can see how Lucinda blouse would work. HTH
