Sorry for the long absence but one of our senior dogs had a little accident and I’ve been on 24-hour nursing duty with him. We’re still not sure what the outcome will be so any good thoughts you’d like to send along would be appreciated.
I know I promised a continuation of the Intuitive Eating series, and I swear it will come. But I need a little light and bright in my life right and I’m feeling fashiony. With the holiday weekend, transitional season sales and the incoming Spring fashions, quite a few of my favorite stores & brands have amazing clothes and accessories to snatch up for the warmer weather to come.
Let’s start with one of everyone’s favorites: J. Crew. Now through Monday at midnight EST, almost everything on the J. Crew website is on sale at 30% off with the code WEEKEND. Here are the lovelies that caught my eye.
Ruffle Tippi Sweater in mermaid floral (Regular $85, On Sale for $59.50)
I mean seriously, how adorable is that mermaid print? Add a ruffle around the neckline of the cult classic Tippi and you have one stunner of a sweater.
Embellished cotton Jackie cardigan sweater in faded peri (Regular $98, On Sale for $68.60)
The famous Jackie cardigan in summer weight cotton embellished with firework bursts of sequins! Swoon! This periwinkle/coral combo screams spring to me, but this lovely sweater is also available in a vibrant yellow with gold sequins and a chic tan on tan option. And since there’s no such thing as too many twin sets, there’s a contrasting striped shell for each color.
Jackie tie neck cardigan in stripes (Regular $89.50, On Sale for $62.65)
I have to admit that this beauty already lives in my closet and I ❤ it! The stripes! The tie neck! So cute, so versatile and it never fails to garner compliments. Also available in a saddle/navy/ivory combo.
Boat neck T-shirt in vintage stripe (Regular $39.50, On Sale for $27.65)
I have several weaknesses when it comes to clothes and stripes are at the top of the list! This boat neck beauty in a vibrant navy/azalea multi stripe not only makes my heart sing, it would be a nice addition to the navy striped brigade in my closet. Seriously, it’s an obsession!
Gathered popover shirt in vintage plaid (Regular $78, On Sale for $54.60)
I recently remarked to my husband that aside from the basics of black, white, camel/tan & denim; I would be perfectly happy if everything in my closet were pink, green or blue. I think this shirt heard me. The perfect green & blue in my beloved popover styling. I prefer popovers to button-ups because they look so neat tucked in or left out. Most button-ups require a little extra work (tied tails or a half tuck) to keep from looking sloppy if worn untucked. Popovers always look great.
Chambray & ruffles. I’m sold! The original blue collar fabric has been feminized with sweet little ruffles and the juxtaposition is delightful! Pop a neon pink, green or turquoise shell underneath for an added layer of wow with heels for the office or flats for brunch and you’re the picture of perfection! 👌🏻
Scalloped chambray skirt (Regular $88, On Sale for $61.60)
Too short for me but too cute not to include. Faux wrap chambray skirt with a piped scalloped panel and a single sassy button. I can see this one on repeat all summer long! Pair it with tees and tennies or a gingham shirt and cute flats.
Charlie slides in glossy navy leather (Regular $188, On Sale for $131.60)
I’ll admit I’ve been a little late to the mule/slide trend. I’m old enough that the word mule conjures up childhood memories of Mrs. Roper from Three’s Company. These luscious navy slides are just the thing to get me over the hump! Perfectly preppy tasseled loafer up front, fresh air slide in the back and not a whiff of caftan anywhere! Also available in pampered pink color block and snakeskin print.
Seavees for J. Crew legend sneaker in gingham (Regular $88, On Sale for $61.60)
Remember my stripe obsession confession a few items back? Well, my gingham love is right up there too. I’ll put it down to my Southern heritage. These gingham Seavees are amazing!! Shorts, crops, ankle pants, casual skirts? Check, check, check & check! Errands, brunch, lunch, shopping? Check, check, check & check! Honestly, I’m not sure it’s possible to survive spring and summer without these in your arsenal! Also available in red & white skinny stripe and navy multi stripe.
Metallic ankle strap sandals (Regular $168, On Sale for $117.60)
What’s rarer than a unicorn sighting or a perfectly ripe avocado? Party shoes that make you want to dance all night but don’t leave your feet hating you in the morning. These might be the perfect shoes. Gold metallic leather says party. The traditional t-strap design says classic. The just under 2-inch block heel says comfort. And they’re all wrapped up in a dainty bow for added sweetness!
Denim ankle-wrap flats (Regular $138, On Sale for $96.60)
This hybrid ballet flat/ankle wrap/sling back is one of the cutest shoes I’ve seen this season. These little shoes are ready for anything! Day or night. Work or play. Casual or dressed up. Absolutely adorbs! Also available in sequined gingham.
Gemma suede flats with pom-poms in festive green (Regularly $118, On Sale for $82.60)
The PERFECT shade of green and pom-poms. Cunning turquoise trim and pom-poms. Sweet little bows and pom-poms. Oh, and did I mention pom-poms? These are my very favorite thing on this list! Because, pom-poms!! Also available in tropical sun.
Pop Stripe tote (Regular $158, On Sale for $110.60)
In my book there are several things a lady can never have too many of: black shoes, white shirts, twin sets & totes. Be careful though; this scrumptious tote in azalea/navy combo with TASSELS is bound to make all of your other totes feel left out. When has utilitarian ever been so snazzy?
Honeymoon tassel earrings (Regular $65, On Sale for $45.50)
Tortoise look flowers with rhinestone centers, enameled caps and white beaded tassels. These earrings are so on trend that if you look up the word trend they might be pictured there! The tortoise and white looks so fresh to me, but these beautiful baubles are also available in a tortoise/navy combo.
Dipped enameled hoop earrings in sweet jasmine (Regular $19.50, On Sale for $13.65)
Don’t forget, the sale ends Monday at midnight EST and you know how J Crew sales are; things are going quickly! I hope to be back tomorrow with another batch of fashion.
Until next time!
