Happy Fashion Friday! Today, please join in to Cool Off in JCP styles with Leigh & Me.
I wrote this year that I believe JC Penney’s is the best quality low cost brand available.
I have seen others decline in quality…yes, you have to take time to shop at JCP stores but it Is worth it.
Some items do qualify as “cheap clothes”, but they sell many that have very similar quality and fit as high end brands.
You see me in my white JCP denim jeans (like yesterday) often and since I was able to pick those up for $19, the cost per wear has been pennies.
Ha! Pennies at Penney’s. For any purchases you make online, use the CODE JUNEBUG9 for more savings.
So, please join Leigh Ann and me as we get out of the excessive heat to cool off in JCP styles.
COOL OFF IN JCP STYLES: THE WEATHER
Let’s begin our quest to shop JCP styles with a note about our weather.
We have been in an excessive heat alert for several days now with high humidity and temps over one hundred.
Wednesday, San Antonio experienced the highest heat index ever at 117 degrees.
When Leigh Ann and I decided to stop by JCP, we were looking for clothing styles that are cool and stylish in this summer heat.
No one wants to look like wilted basil!
We will tell you if something does not meet our quality standards, but if we do not say that then we stand behind these looks.
You can look great on a budget with JCP styles.
Here are the JCP styles we found:
COOL OFF IN JCP STYLES: LEIGH ANN
When we arrived at JCP at North Star Mall, Leigh Ann went to the petite department first and found nothing she wanted to show you there.
However, she found several JCP styles in small Misses sizes that she really liked and would recommend.
Many of these give you a petite option on the website.
Both of us liked this LIZ CLAIBORNE SLEEVELESS MIDI DRESS. Leigh Ann selected the Bold Blue color in a size 6.
The fabric of this dress is so cool and soft to the touch. We could see it by a pool, at a lake, or relaxing at home after a long day out in summer.
It feels so lovely, cool and comfy. On the website it is styled with sneakers and looks fun like that as well.
She also tried on the Liz Claiborne Sleeveless Shift Dress in Indigo.
A very cool, comfy dress to toss on and run some errands.
Leigh Ann really liked this little skirt, so she styled it two different ways for you to see.
This is the LIZ CLAIBORNE WOMEN’S A-LINE SKIRT.
The size is 6 and she saw it as a star in the current JCP styles.
The design details and seams make this a very flattering skirt…and showing the legs is a big cool off factor in this heat!
Her top selection (note she really likes this top for all the different ways it could be worn) is the Liz Claiborne Linen Women’s Boat Neck Short Sleeve Blouse…in x-small, and the color Flax.
It is a perfect match to the flax color in the skirt.
Since, she also desired for you to see the waistline, she tried it with the St. John’s Bay Women’s Scoop Neck Tank in Cabaret Red, size Medium.
This tank is available in 20 colors!
She also liked this little dress for cool, comfort and style.
She is wearing a size small in the Olive Grove color, and this is the Liz Claiborne Short Sleeve T-Shirt Dress.
I talked her into trying on these pants because I thought they were so much fun.
AND, they look amazing on Leigh Ann.
These are the Worthington Regular Fit Ankle Trousers, and at $27 would be a great purchase for a special event.
Make it an indoor event, because these are not really cooling pants. She is wearing a size 6.
We are not going to link to this particular black top, because Leigh Ann said it was very poorly made.
However, you can see how it looks with a black top.
COOL OFF IN JCP STYLES: ME
I did not find many JCP styles for me that I would call cool garments, but there were a few I wanted to show you.
This is the Liz Claiborne Sleeveless Midi Dress in Navy, Size 16…and it is a COOL garment for summer.
For some reason, this speaks beach to me in the JCP styles.
The fabrics just feel like the beach…do not know why.
This is the Liz Claiborne Womens V-Neck Short Sleeve Blouse in Navy Stripe. I have an X-Large on and could have sized down if the size had been on the rack.
I like this top with the Liz Claiborne Linen Womens Mid-Rise Drawstring Wide Leg Pants in white.
A very cool, comfy outfit.
I thought this was fun and cool.
This is the Liz Claiborne Womens Split Crewneck Sleeveless Blouse in White Floral.
While it is cute with these pants, I would prefer it a size smaller with denim like depicted on the website…really cute.
But, since we were going for cool outfits, I paired it with the Liz Claiborne Linen Womens Mid rise, wide leg drawstring pants in white multi stripes.
I am showing you these cute striped crops with the blouse that was hanging with them.
BUT, this blouse is aging, not flattering and a very heavy material…so not cool.
But, the pants are really fun…these are the Liz Claiborne Mid Rise Capris in Turquoise Stripe.
OK…that is it for our cool shopping spree…and remember to use the code JUNEBUG9 for savings on any item you may want to order.
I also have my eye on the Liz Claiborne Cargo Cropped Pants in the color Rust Oxide…perfect for an autumn lady and on sale for $22.39!
Let us know if you have questions and I so hope you enjoyed shopping with Leigh & Me…see you tomorrow for Style Tips!
