Stripes + A Colorblock Cardigan

Taubman Prestige Outlets Chesterfield, an upper-moderate fashion outlet mall, opened in the St. Louis area last weekend.  This new outlet mall houses a J.Crew Factory Store, the first one in the area.

Opening day was absolutely chaotic!  There were so many people accessing the new mall that Highway 40 (near the Boone’s Crossing exit) was stalled.  As Taubman expands, I hope the company adds additional access points to the mall because the current single entrance isn’t functional.  I also hope that Taubman uses some of that available space on the grounds for additional parking.

Anyway, I spent about two hours in the J.Crew Factory store, mostly in lines (to the fitting and to the checkout counter), and all I bought was a cardigan.  It’s a fresh cardigan though; it’s colorblocked.

    Cute! Whenever I find something fabulous at the J.Crew outlet it is of course sold it in my size. 🙂

    I love how you cleverly folded the neckline of the sweater. Crew neck cardigans don't work on me, either. Now I want that sweater! Love your blog.

      Thanks, Wendi! Yes, I had to fold the neckline so it would pair well with the v-neck on the dress. I, too, prefer v-neck sweaters, but this style from J.Crew has grown on me.

      Right, Jacqueline! I can't believe you weren't there on opening day 🙂 I'm so excited to finally have one here locally.
