One of Two New JCrew Shirts - WIW today

Hi lovely fab ladies!
I have been needing a few more shirts in my wardrobe so I took advantage of a sale at JCrew to pick up a couple, one of which I wore today. I really wanted some pattern in a black and white print (it will go with a lot in my closet) so I purchased JCrew's "perfect shirt in a black white checked pattern). It fits well and is very soft (which is important to me) and surprisingly cool. This was greatly appreciated as the temps are supposed to be in the 100' + range again today.

new black white JCrew checked shirt
black Talbots Capris
black wedge sandals
white watch
white AE denim jacket
silver hoop earrings
black woven belt

I hope this looks ok to you all. I tucked the top today and it's ok but I think I actually like it a little better untucked. Maybe I'll post a picture of it untucked.

    I love both looks!!

  • JR replied 8 years ago

    It works nicely tucked in. It would probably work untucked also... Thumbs up.

  • morethanbeige replied 8 years ago

    Both looks are great. You look so cute.

  • Sara L. replied 8 years ago

    Cute top! It looks very versatile and could be worn in multiple seasons too.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 8 years ago

    Cute shirt Meredith! Looks great with your crops.

  • Jonesy replied 8 years ago

    I think you look great, and we are J. Crew black and white checked button down twins :)!

  • Jjsloane replied 8 years ago

    Love the shirt. So versatile for any season (under a colorful sweater for fall/winter?)

  • Heather replied 8 years ago

    I wanna see the check blouse with your red skirt! :)

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Thanks Jamie and JR and morethanbeige (love that name)!

    @Sara L
    I'm hoping it will work multiple seasons. I am really concentrating on not having to have separate wardrobes for different seasons!

    I'm glad you like it with the crops!

    Well I KNOW it is a cool shirt if fab you is wearing it!

    I love the idea of it under a sweater also!

    Yes ma'am I will be trying this shirt and the leopard print with the red skirt also!

  • Scarlet replied 8 years ago

    Looks really sweet!

  • texstyle replied 8 years ago

    Looks great - your style has been really great recently, loving all your new looks!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Thanks Scarlett!

    I have actually been buying some clothing the last few months LOL! The first few months that I was on the forum I was just basically scrounging what I had in my closet but slowly I have started added after I have been sort of getting a better handle on my style, courtesy of the lovely ladies of this great community!

    You look so polished and fresh! What a flattering outfit on you.

    I am working on losing my muffin top so I can tuck my shirts in again...

  • JulieJohn replied 8 years ago

    Classic and crisp! Love it.

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Well I still have a little "muffin top" going also but I'm trying to tuck occasionally :)

    Thanks! Classic and crisp works for me!

  • jayne replied 8 years ago

    hmmm. I am not lovin' the fit of that shirt. Is it too long to tuck? seems to bunch at the waist, can you try untucked?

  • Alecia replied 8 years ago

    The shirt is great. The white jacket really draws out its greatness. I'm thinking that the crops could stand to be a little shorter. Or maybe more tapered. There's something about those crops that I can't put my finger on.

  • ManidipaM replied 8 years ago

    You look like a mischievous Huck Finn, Meredith --- until we get to the smart jacket and dainty shoes, and then your haircut suddenly reads as gamine! I love the inherent androgyny and the playfulness of this outfit. Who knew black and white could be so, um, NOT black and white? grey? I'm not putting this very well... :-/ But I do love it!

  • Deborah replied 8 years ago

    Great shirt and it looks great this way. Creates a very crisp fresh look. Would love to see it untucked also:)

  • Carole replied 8 years ago

    What a great shirt! You'll get loads of wear from it. Hmmmm maybe that's something to add to my wish list. Anyway, love the way you have styled it here, fab as usual.

  • Vicki replied 8 years ago

    This check print looks so good and is a natural on you. Love the white denim topper, too.

  • Abie replied 8 years ago

    Very cute shirt, I love it with the jacket. Those capris are soooo nice on you too!

  • Freckles replied 8 years ago

    Wow, that is perfect for you. Love the pairing and it will be wonderful in your wardrobe. Glad it is nice and soft too.

  • replied 8 years ago

    Super cute!

  • catgirl replied 8 years ago

    Really nice! I got one of these shirts a while back and have been too lazy to iron it - now am feeling inspired!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    I hate ironing too, but I figure it's worth it.
