J.Crew Review! Cropped Cardigan Sweater and Sophie Sweater Blazer Chevron



Another weekend over. I swear they go by so fast. It's almost the end of October. Normally I like to buy a few items during fall to refresh my wardrobe and more often than not, I turn to J.Crew. They always have pieces that can transition from the office to the weekend. Even though I'm no longer going into the office these days, I couldn't resist these two pieces. 

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a XXS/XS in J.Crew. I also wear a size 4 in Lululemon tops.



I used to have a very similar chevron sweater from Anthropologie that I wore to death and got compliments every time I wore it. This sweater blazer kind of reminds me of that Anthropologie sweater I used to have. It's super soft and I was pleasantly surprised when I took it out of the bag at how much I liked it. The fabric is lightweight, yet cozy. This is something I would wear to the office but this is also a piece that can easily be worn on a weekend outing. Not that I'm really going anywhere but Target and Whole Foods, but we can still try and pretend things are normal by getting dressed up with our masks on of course. 😃



I'm wearing size XXS and I think it fits perfectly. The shoulders fit just right, the length of this sweater isn't too long. The sleeves are actually where I like them to be. This supposed to be a 7/8 length sleeve, but on my it's full length. I am loving the little details on this piece. Plus, it's on sale right now. J.Crew is having awesome sales lately. 


For those of you thinking, well I'm into wearing my sweatshirts and joggers lately, this blazer doesn't really work with my outfits these days. I hear you! However, this combination may work with a different color sweater blazer like the model below. I dare say, I would actually wear this outfit. I think I'll try it next weekend. I have that exact one in heather charcoal. 😂


Alright, up next we have my favorite cardigan. This one is the clear winner for me out of the two pieces. The Cropped Cardigan Sweater is super soft. It's made of merino wool/alpaca mix. I didn't find this piece to be itchy, although I did read some reviews who said it was for them. Easy remedy would be to wear a long sleeve shirt underneath like a button down. This also gives the cardigan a collar and some added visual details to make the outfit pop. I love this look, I think it's easy to wear with pants or jeans. Even my husband complimented how cute I looked.

Cropped Cardigan Sweater Heathered Charcoal Size XS


I'm wearing size XS here, and it's a very generous fit. The sweater is slightly boxy. The length is shorter in the front and longer in the back with a little side slit. The sleeves are a little long, but I have them cuffed up and I think it works very well with the ribbing matching the details of the cardigan.


This is how it looks open, I still kind of like the look. 


If you're looking to have a more fitted look, you may want to size down. I'm really into the oversized look right now and I find it to be most comfortable. I actually like this cardigan so much, I'm about to place another order for the olden green and ivory rainbow. 

Side slit detail.



Also wearing Rothy's The Point.


That's it for me! Hope you all have a fantastic Monday!

  1. The cropped cardigan looks so comfy! I like how you pair it with a longer plaid shirt which balances out the boxiness and shortness of the cardigan while making the whole outfit more interesting. I usually just wear cardigans with tees. :)

    The blazers is nice and versatile and my only complaint would be the sleeve length. I wish the sleeves were either full length or a few inches shorter. Now the length is a bit embarrassing in my opinion, just like it was made a couple inches too short.

    1. True, if you have longer arms than I do, it may be at a weird length. You could also cuff the sleeves for an intentional casual look. =)

  2. You are so cute! I just started a blog and it is so geared toward consumerism, my obsession with Lululemon, etc. I'm so glad I found your blog. I'm sort of petite - 5'5 but sometimes I can't find jackets small enough so maybe just part of me is petite! Anyway, love your truth.

  6. Oh ok i just saw it. It's quite big esp in the sleeves. Wish they had it in the numeric sizing so we can at least size down. too bad because the design is so nice. fabric and stitching looks high quality too

    1. I agree, it's a little too big. There will always be something else, so I'm not too upset lol.
