James Perse recycled slub v-neck tee (size 1)
Such a great white v-neck tee. My favorite.
James Perse gathered spiral skirt (size 3)
This is not my absolute favorite JP skirt I own, but I like it for a more loose look sometimes, and it’s longer/doesn’t ride up when I walk. I sized up to a size 3 because I wanted it to sort of hang at my hips but it doesn’t do that LOL, my hips are too big!
James Perse jacket (size 2) | from last year? sold out
You can never go wrong with a JP jacket, I wore this one on the plane over the weekend, and in Florida in the mornings/in air conditioning and I was always so comfortable. Bonus that it’s not too long on me.

Surprise! James Perse reached out to me yesterday and asked if I’d talk about the new summer collection and promote free shipping for you guys. Uh, yes please! So here it is: Free Shipping at James Perse with code GRECHENMAR18. Valid on orders to the contiguous US only (sorry Tania!) and only on clothing and shoes (not bags). Expires 3/25.
Interestingly enough, I was JUST at my local James Perse store last week trying a few things so I can talk a little about some of the new items, although I didn’t try any dresses. Now I’m wishing I had. This “wrap” dress is really lovely, and believe it or not, I don’t have a similar one. Haha. I have five slim JP dresses, but most are sleeveless or short sleeves and I’m really appreciating longer or 3/4 sleeves more lately, they’re so much more versatile IMO.
Here are some notes on what I tried and have added to my shopping list:
Boxy tee : $85
I tried this on in size 2 and it is PHENOMENAL. But yes, I do think all JP tees are that good 😉 This one is just the right length for me, and not overly boxy, just right…
Lightweight cashmere sweater : $375
I tried this on in size 2 and it is also beautiful, and just an easy, perfect light layer. Again, the perfect length for me, and a great fit; not too big, not too small.
Safari Shirt : $185
I tried this on in the size 2 (I think) and it is a great 3/4 sleeve shirt. Lightweight, and falls nicely. Just as easy, but slightly more refined than a t-shirt 🙂
Slub crew neck tee : $75
This is my favorite crew neck tee IN WHITE & BLACK LOL – I did try this color on, just to see how it looked on me, and it wasn’t great (I need more of a brown yellow), but if you can pull it off, I recommend it.
Since they’re in stock, I’ll probably order a smaller pair of my favorite leggings (I’ll get the size 1). A few more things of note: I have two of these sweatshirts (they’re old though, and with the 3/4 length sleeves), and they’re wonderful. Also, I admired this tee dress made from recycled slub cotton in the store, it’s very appealing but I don’t like straight (non-ruched) t-shirt dresses on me. If you can wear them, then this is a good one; It’s quite substantial, not flimsy at all.
I could go ON AND ON AND ON about my love of James Perse, and I have done many times over the last 14 years here, so I won’t now, but if you’d like any input or advice on styles, or what to try if you’ve never worn JP before, ask in the comments!
Fellow JP addicts, what are our favorite pieces? Anything you’re adding this season?
FYI, you won’t find free shipping at James Perse anywhere else, so I really appreciate your support of James Perse when they offer these codes. The more we use them, the more they’ll offer them!! I am so humbled and honored to be able to partner with them in this way.
Ooo! Love this! This is something I would wear a lot…kind of casual – simple – chic. The jacket is perfect with it. I had to give up my James Perse black skirt. (Well, it’s in the consignment pile…unless I shrink!)
Honestly, James Perse should be honored to have you as an “ambassador” of style, with as many fans as you’ve created! 🙂
Ooh, I love the boxy T too. I don’t keep many Ts now but the ones I do that I wear out of the house are almost all JP.
LOL, too funny re: the shipping. I’m used to it. The worst is when I find something so unique/so me and they refuse to ship to Hawaii at all (GOOP). Or they use this weird slow mail method that takes like a month (Everlane) Rarely happens but occasionally. Thankfully Bloomingdale’s opened up recently in Honolulu and they have a big JP in store boutique (including bags!) or I order from Nordstrom (we also have a brick and mortar but they carry very few JP in store).
you converted me to James Perse – I love the rushed dresses. I stocked up over the seasons and made it a staple of my wardrobe. The new “wrap” looks absolutely stunning. I still have to wear a navy silk rushed t-shirt dress I got at the last sale. It is soft and beautiful. My challenge is I am between two sizes a bit. I opt for the larger size to fit my breast but sometimes the rurshing hangs a bit too loosely on the hips. Still the best dresses to take on a business trip and look pulled together. I may splurge on the wrap dress …. free shipping is tempting.
