I have long liked the city mini (full price is between $80-$85 depending on material), but couldn't justify the high price tag. I finally picked the summery linen version up for just over $20 (final sale) during JCrew's latest round of promotions.
Overall, I do like it. It's light and airy, and pairs well with pretty much everything. On-seam pockets are a win, and I dig the paper bag waist. It's 100% linen, but is obviously ultra-wrinkly. Some people look very chic in summery linen, unfortunately, I just look a touch unkempt. lol.
The blousy shirt didn't help this look either; in my head, this look was very cute and feminine, but it didn't translate super well in person. Next time I'll go with a slimmer cut top.
Wrinkles and all, I am still a fan of this skirt.
How do you keep your linen looking crisp and beachy instead of crinkly? Or is it impossible? Let me know in the comments, please! :)
P.S. According to the tag this is dry clean only. Boo.
