OOTD (Thursday): White on White

Hi Everyone!

Here is the outfit that I wore this past Thursday.  For years, I refused to wear white after Labor Day.  I'm not sure why I blindly accepted this fashion "rule"; however, this week I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and to wear white on white.  I must say that it felt liberating for several reasons.  On the one hand, it was nice to break a "rule" that really does not seem to apply anymore.  On the other, it felt great to wear white at my 12/14/16 size range and to feel spectacular while wearing it.  I received more compliments on this outfit than I count.

Because I was wearing this look to teach, I went with my J. Crew James Suede Loafers.  But, I will wear these gorgeous calf hair pumps the next time that I rock this look.

Blazer / T-Shirt/ Jeans / Clutch / Earrings

OOTD: Heart to Heart!

Hi Everyone!

Here is the outfit that I wore to church earlier today.  Of course my outfit is all J. Crew!  Wearing this skirt with hearts on it made me really think about how many people need to know that they're loved in this world.  With all of the craziness going on around us, I encourage you to make sure that your friends, family, peers know how much you love them and how much you care.  Each time that I read a rude, negative, or flat out mean comment on the Internet, I honestly stop and pray SO hard for the poster.  My heart seriously goes out to people who lash out at people they don't even know.  I was raised in a super loving household.  My Mom and Dad have always been super intentional about letting us know how much we're loved and valued.  My prayer today is that the keyboard gangsters who repeatedly try to hurt others with their harsh words will find the love that they SO desperately need.  Today, I'm challenging you to smile at strangers.  Hold the door for people when you're walking into a restaurant or store.  And, please, call your friends and family members just to say "I love you."  Love, this world needs more of it.

Here is my outfit:

J. Crew Sadie Cross-Strap Flats in Plaid and 30% off!

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you're having a great weekend!  The J. Crew Sadie Cross-Strap Flats in Plaid have been at the top of my list since they appeared on the website.  I was able to snag these beauties recently.  They do not disappoint IRL:



These shoes are spectacular.  They're super cute, super comfortable, and super stylish. I plan to wear these beauties with jeans and blazers, but they would also be super cute with both pencil and midi skirts.  And, the plaid pattern is ripe for pattern mixing with gingham or stripes and other plaid patterns, too!   Fit is TTS; I took my normal size 9 in these shoes.  I totally see why the shoes get a 5-star review on the website. 

J. Crew is offering 30% off your purchase with code GOSHOP.  Here are several of the pieces that I own and love:

J. Crew Tiered Skirt in Polka-Dot Embroidered Tulle and 40% off!

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Tiered Skirt in Polka-Dot Embroidered Tulle is one of my favorite pieces!  This skirt is stunning, unique, and SO versatile.  The fit, the quality, and the design are all superb.  This skirt is SO flattering.  I have already created at least five ways to wear this beauty.  Here are three IRL pictures of the skirt:




I highly recommend this skirt.  It can be worn casually/dressed down with a denim jacket and t-shirt like I'm wearing it, or it can be dressed up for a fun and festive holiday party.  The layers are SO cute and flattering.  The waistband is elastic, but the skirt does have a zipper.  I took my normal size, so the skirt fits TTS.  The skirt is super slimming!

J. Crew is also offering 40% off a few of my faves:

Madewell up to 30% off!

Hi Everyone!

Madewell is offering up to 30% off with code YESANDYES!  So, I'm sharing several of my current faves!

Here is what I'm currently loving at Madewell :


One of my favorite Madewell Denim Jackets is included in this promotion, too!  The Oversized Jean Jacket:  Embroidered Edition is SO fun and unique.  I am treating this jacket as a neutral in my closet even with the embroidery.  The jacket adds that special "pop" to the denim on denim trend.  I highly recommend this beautiful piece:



The details on this jacket are SO striking!  I took a size Large in the jacket.

The Oversized Jean Jacket in Marvin Wash is a winner, too!


I took a size Large in this jacket as well.  I love the "oversized" trend at Madewell.  And, honestly, you cannot go wrong with a black denim jacket in your wardrobe.

J. Crew Parke Blazer in Velvet

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Parke Blazer in Velvet in Dried Rose is one of my favorite pieces from the most recent website launch.  I've said it before, but I will say it again, no other retailer does color better than J. Crew.  And, this blazer is absolutely fabulous.  The "dried rose" color is vibrant and striking--it's perfect for fall!  The color pairs so well with so many current and past J. Crew offerings.  It looks spectacular with stripes.  The blazer quality is superb.  The material is luxurious, fluffy, and incredibly soft.  This blazer gets a 5-star rating on the website, which is spot on.  Here are two IRL pictures of me wearing the blazer:



And, here are the website images that sold me on the blazer:





This blazer really "pops" against stripes and distressed denim.  The blazer fits TTS.  I'm wearing my blazer with an older J. Crew shirt from 2014, but the J. Crew Striped Button-Up Shirt with Ruffles works well too (fit is TTS).

Madewell--The Oversized Jean Jacket Embroidered Edition

Hi Everyone!

I am absolutely loving the Madewell Oversized Jean Jacket Embroidered Edition.  This jacket is fun, unique, and SO versatile!  The design is absolutely striking!  Here are two IRL pictures of the jacket:



The embroidery is incredible.  This jacket will be in constant rotation in my wardrobe because I plan to treat the jacket as a neutral piece, so I will be pairing it with everything!  I love the idea of pattern mixing the fabulous embroidery with stripes and polka dots.  The jacket is designed to fit "oversized," but I took my normal size Large.  I highly recommend this great piece!

And, here are a few other pieces that I'm currently loving from Madewell:

J. Crew Reversible Puffer Jacket in Liberty Catesby Floral

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Reversible Puffer Jacket in Liberty Catesby Floral is one of my favorite new arrivals! This jacket is SO fun and versatile!

Here are a few pictures of the jacket:






Details:  I sized down from a Large to a Medium in this jacket, so the fit is generous.  This jacket is incredibly soft, but it is lightweight so it will not keep you warm in frigid temperatures.  The jacket has a cocoon-ish fit that I think is super flattering and that allows for layering without feeling too bulky.  The reversible side of the jacket is an olive green color that is SO adorable!

I love how the jacket is styled in the following images:



This jacket is perfect for pattern mixing.  The J. Crew Striped Button-Up Shirt with Ruffles looks fabulous with this liberty print.  And, I love the J. Crew Academy Loafers in Calf Hair with this print, too!  The shoes fit TTS.
