As soon as this sleeveless blazer arrived I emptied my entire closet and tried it on with everything. Flannels, dresses, tees, rompers, my nightgown; it worked with it all. Okay, maybe not my nightgown. It’s light, unlike a lot of blazers, a little long on me (in a good way, I think) and feels like an instant refresh on all of the outfits I’ve had on repeat the last few months. It was a little more than I wanted to spend, but for such a versatile piece I’d say it was worth every penny, especially since it’ll transition well through all four seasons. It doesn’t exactly provide warmth though. I was so cold taking these photos my hands might have turned blue afterward. Oops.
And now let’s talk about this tote from J.Crew that could comfortably fit my teeny toddler, a day’s supply of snacks and a library filled with her favorite books. Not to mention everything else I would ever need. It’s a soft, gorgeous leather that comes in a few other colors (I also love the stone taupe) and has a little wallet bag that ties to the handle with leather string. It’s the essential bag for every season and I’m pretty smitten. Also, bonus: it’s on sale! Another bonus: J.Crew is running a contest. Here’s how it works:
Instagram how you wear your J.Crew accessories with the hashtags #ACCESSORYFIX and #JCREWCONTEST for a chance to win one of three $1,500 shopping sprees. The three winners will be picked by J.Crew creative director, Jenna Lyons, herself! You have until March 23, so get gramming!
In case you can’t narrow down all the beauties from J.Crew’s current collection, these are my favorites: this bag (and this one, too), these shoes (and these shoes and these, too) and this simple gold cuff, to name just a few.
