The White Cropped Matchstick Jean, $19.99 on Final Sale... aaand
The Cashmere Short-Sleeve Tee in Sandalwood, $98 Full Price
I am telling myself that the jeans are a deal. $20! But I can't put it in my cart all by its lonesome, which brings me to the Sandalwood Cashmere tee. I love the classic Jackie-O-ness of this color, especially when considering the tee worn with the white jeans. & I know many a lady > size 2 who fears the white jean because of its ability to, shall we say, emphasize areas of our body we don't want emphasized. But I say, if you like the white jean, wear it. & as I think about how much money I've spent this weekend for J.Crew, I'm also trying to rationalize the fact that 1) I am getting some great deals and 2) My Carlyle dress was paid for by Gift Cards and so will my Jeans. Not too shabby.
In further justification, I polyvored a couple of looks that I could put together with the jeans and the cashmere tee, proving their versatility. Voila:
Last reason why I justify the purchase? Because I love them. Can't think of a better reason than that!
