J.Crew Houndstooth Tippi & New Arrivals

I checked out the new arrivals at the store last night. Specifically, I was searching for the Houndstooth Tippi sweater that is currently not available online.  I tried it on both colors, the navy and hunter green. Here are quick photos of both:

Personally, I like the top version, in hunter green and that is the color I purchased last night. The fit of this is very similar to my other Tippi sweaters, it is true to size, fitted and really comfortable. In particular, I like the larger houndstooth print detail on the shoulders.

I bought the Excursion vest in Saddle and the much beloved  Horsing Around Sweatshirt. I had to size down in the Excursion vest since it runs a bit big. I found the sweatshirt to be true to size, but it is definitely a more fitted sweatshirt and NOT a relaxed fit like some of the other sweatshirts I have purchased from J. Crew in the past.  Quick photo of both together:

I really liked some of the other new roll outs, but I am waiting for some of them to come down in price before I spend more. Now, if only the weather would cool down in Los Angeles, so I can wear them! :)

Happy Shopping!
