This week has been an interesting one. I got the new J. Crew catalog, had an interview, and an amazing dinner tonight with J and MIL at The Dutch in Saugerties. Although my dinner was amazing, I’m choosing to focus on the new J. Crew A/W pieces. There are so many adorable things, I know that I already want it all, but I know I have to be good. Here are my top picks!
I have been eyeing this Donegal tweed blazer for a couple of years now, and I feel I desperately need to add this one to the collection. I can wear it easily with trousers, jeans, a skirt or over a dress. Adding the matching skirt would create the perfect A/W suit. It’s a classic pencil shape, and the same tweed, perfect for mixing and matching with my current A/W pieces.
I had been hoping to add a pair of heeled ankle boots to the shoe collection this year, these more than fit the bill, a decent heel height, a matte leather and a zipper for ease of getting on and off. I’m also looking to add these red two piece loafers, if they are anything like the Tommy Hilfiger pair I have lived in all summer than sign me up!
I love sweaters, and more recently I have been enamoured by neutrals. This flax shade is perfect for A/W, mixing and matching with denim, trousers or skirts. The options are endless! I’m also a sucker for stripes, and the classic Breton is perfect, Navy and Ivory would go so well with everything I own.
This floral skirt screams fun, and I need it in my life, all the ensemble options are reeling my mind as I type. I can just feel it will be a favourite for seasons to come! This deep evergreen dress is exactly what I was hoping to find for A/W, deep in colour, easy to wear and a perfect length for work, what more could I ask for?
I’m not going to add a lot to my current wardrobe this A/W, but as always a refresher is in order. I know it’s a bit early, but in the fashion world, I am way behind! And on that note, it’s time to end.
Al for now,
