Quick Picks: J.Crew Factory New Arrivals

I know it's only July, but I'm already looking forward to fall. My favorite time of the year is when those leaves start changing colors, and there's a brisk chill in the air. In (very early) preparation for the upcoming cooler months, here are some quick picks from today's J.Crew Factory roll-out.

1. Factory Herringbone Excursion Vest - Currently backordered and final sale for some inexplicable reason. I've missed out on this vest two years in a row, and sadly this year is no different. I waited too long this morning because I wasn't sure about the size and I didn't want to gamble on final sale, so now I'm on the waitlist. Crossing my fingers that the order will get fulfilled (and that it fits)!

2. Factory Solid Excursion Vest - If you're not as obsessed with the herringbone one as I am, black is a good solid option that will pair well with everything. It's also not final sale, which is a major plus. Comes in a myriad of other colors if black isn't your thing.

3. Factory Grey Fleece Hoodie - Versatile casual layering piece for the weekend or working out. This is my favorite shade of grey, and it's surprisingly difficult to find a plain light grey hoodie.

4. Factory C'est La Vie Collector Tee - I actually like Factory tees better than regular J.Crew tees. They're usually all cotton, and they don't seem as sheer (especially compared to the vintage cotton ones). For example, I own two retail bar-stripe tees and one Factory version. One of the retail shirts has already developed a hole while the Factory one is going strong. The font reminds me of the Madewell Bien Fait sweatshirt.

5. Factory White Flared Skirt - I have the black retail version of this skirt that I picked up on sale some time ago. I missed out on the white version, which other bloggers have pair beautifully with a multitude of tops. One nice thing about Factory re-issues is getting that second chance.

I ended up ordering the two vests and wishlisting the other items. I hope the herringbone excursion doesn't slip through my fingers yet again!

Did you buy anything today from the new roll-out at J.Crew Factory? Are you obsessed with the excursion vests like I am? Did you get your hands on one of the coveted herringbone ones? Do tell!
