I feel like and Easter egg here. A spotted, pastel lavender Easter egg. But, I'm smiling in the photos, so apparently spotty Easter eggs make me happy.
These J Crew cafe capris have been lingering in the sale section for what seems like forever! I felt so sad for them. Not surprising, though. They came out during the winter season, and pastel lavender doesn't really scream 'Seasons Greetings' if you ask me. What's up with J Crew's wonky color scheme lately anyway? It seems like they have their seasons all mixed up.
Anyway, I'm a player of the Long Game (you know--buy it on post-season clearance now to save and wear later), and I could foresee winter clearance lavender crops working perfectly for the spring. Plus, I've discovered a secret with J Crew's crops. Order them in Tall! The cafe carpi fit was always a little weird on me (weird rise, gaping waistband) but fit issue seems to fix itself when I order in Tall. I think the rise on Tall sizes is slightly higher than on the regular lengths, and I really like that higher rise on the cafe capri. It hits me at a more flattering spot on my waist, and it fixes the gaping waistband too.
It doesn't hurt that it gives me a few more inches in the inseam length too. Did I also mention that in the sale section there are usually more colors/sizes available in Tall? Double-triple bonus!
