J.Crew Petite-Friendly Picks and 20% off Sweaters Sale

***J.Crew is having a 20% off sweaters sale from now until Sunday. No coupon code necessary.***

I fell in love with this tulle and cotton shell during my last trip to J.Crew. It comes in 5 colors that are perfect for the spring and summer.

And the best part? It runs small! Here I am wearing a size XS in cream. It may look slightly loose, but this tank has an A-line shape so I don't think it's meant to be too fitted. The cotton jersey material is heavyweight and sturdy, which is a bonus.

I loved it over leggings and almost bought it right then and there, but decided to go home and browse online. Good thing, too, because I discovered that this is available in size XXS online!

I noticed that I got a new follower last week - J.Crew Boston Sales Associates ... uh oh. I know that photography is shunned inside retail stores, but I'm just trying to promote the brand  :  )

Also found this open shawl cardigan in XS:
So the closest thing that I can find to this online is the Always Cardigan, but I'm unsure whether it's the same one. The Always Cardigan is a cotton/modal blend, whereas I feel like the one I tried one was heavier.
This cardigan used to be under "sweaters," but interestingly enough, it got moved to "knits" when the 20% off sweaters sale was announced today. Hmm, J.Crew. 

I also found Jenna's Cardigan in XS, which is described as a "perfectly cropped cardigan" for wearing over dresses that is "short but not too short" and "more fitted" with "3/4 sleeves." Wow...music to my ears...sounds like a winner for tiny petites! If anyone has tried this sweater, do let me know how it fits:
^ Just noticed that the model is wearing the grand ruffle tank. Actually looks like a tank on her, and more like a tunic on me!

And last but not least, I am in love with this Cascade Cardigan in XS. Again, it is a "chic, cropped length" with "3/4 sleeves" - two phrases that my eyes are always peeled for when online shopping. Note how tight it is on the model, especially the arms. I actually went to J.Crew specifically to try this on, but it was nowhere to be found.
That's it for today. Happy shopping, and don't forget - sweater sale ends on Sunday!
