In the September issue of Lucky magazine, I picked up an interesting tidbit of fashion advice that I hadn't heard before. The magazine suggested pairing pastels with neons in the same color family, and the moment I tried on this top and blouse in J.Crew I understood what great advice that was! I never would have thought to pair these two together, and was really only trying them on at the same time without intending to pair them together in real life. But I love them together... they remind me of a refreshing sorbet combination.
One word on fit: I take a 6 in the Naomi top so the buttons won't gape down the chest. But if you have a small chest, I would recommend sizing down as it is a bit baggy everywhere else. I've heard other ladies say they had to size up in this skirt, so I went with the 6. But on me, as you can see, I have plenty of room, I may have been able to size down to a 4. It's definitely an item you want to try on before deciding on the size. But for me, this skirt did not run small. Online, only size 0 is left, but at least in my store there were a least a dozen left so be sure to check your local J.Crew for your size. Hope that helps!
