Spring wardrobe

Once again, I've been traveling and that has put a hold-on my posts here. My apologies. But I have definitely found time to get some shopping in. Unfortunately, my birthday trip to Miami is off but I plan on visited the spa this weekend instead and possibly do some more shopping. Here are a rundown of some new purchases:
I got these capris from J.Crew in the papaya color below. I wanted the grey mist color but they weren't shipping for another week to to a drop in inventory.

I love J.Crew's 3/4 sleeve boatneck tees. I picked this one up in black. Black is always great for a plane ride.

There are two things about J.Crew that bug me. Ok, maybe three. First — their shipping charges are outrageous and they rarely offer a free shipping code (they even asked that their codes be taken off the Retail Me Not forum.) But I will say their regular shipping arrives much quicker than Banana's. I'm hoping these items come by Friday — to be continued.
Second — their petite line is built so that us petites have to order a size up from our normal size. I know it's only a number, but it still gets to me!
Third — Their prices are high, period. But the quality is definitely up there so I guess it balances out.

I also recently picked up this dress from Banana. It is so fun to wear. I've been wearing it with a black or white tank underneath to dress it down a bit and it is super cute both ways. Perfect for a good dinner out.
