J Crew Factory New Arrivals: Fall Is In The Air

J Crew Factory debuted their new rollout today and it features some cute pieces that will be perfect for fall layers.  and with this heat and humidity, boy, am I ready!

Here are just a few of my favorites...

You know I love blazers, so with so much cuteness, it was impossible to pick just one.

You can always use a cute graphic tee...and it will be oh so cute under one of the fab new blazers.

Of course, the "Taterbug" Boston Terrier sweater is a no-brainer. :)

I have this dress from retail and I love, love, love it!  So much so, I have it in two colors...and I might just have to pick up the yellow in this one.

Oh my goodness, I swoon!  I will definitely have to make this beauty mine!  and it's in super chic navy!

Look at these stunners!

And that's just the tip of the iceberg...There's lots of cuteness at J Crew Factory to have you stepping into fall in style!

Check back for Part Two...I'm going to put together some outfit ideas with some of my new arrival picks. :)

Happy Shopping!

Sale Alert: J Crew Teddie Pants

When the Teddie pants debuted last autumn, I fell hard.  They are super chic and on trend with a cropped, flare leg.  and even better, they hold that cute silhouette all day without bagging out.

So imagine my surprise when I noticed, that in addition to the few colors that are on final sale, the new fall colors are 50% as well...ringing up at $39.75!  Not bad, as they retail for $89.50. (Use Code SALEONSALE valid through Sunday, July 31.)

I have navy, which I'm wearing above...and picked up cabernet at this awesome price point.  They will be perfect for fall.  The teddie pants run tts.

Here are just a few styling ideas for the cabernet colorway...

Have you tried the Teddie pants?  If not, now is a great time to do just that!

Banana Republic Loves

Banana Republic has been killing it lately!  and I love their BR Classics shop, so today I wanted to share a couple of my latest BR loves.

Old Navy Yellow Sandals (old)

I've never been much of a peplum girl, but this little bit of perfection has changed my mind.  It is so flattering and the styling options are can go to the office, but it's also perfect for the weekend.  It is tts and currently on promo for $48.  It is also available in a super cute stripe version currently on promo for $44

Another BR cutie, is the Sleeveless Lace Trim Top, available in ivory, as well as, navy.  

This top is so pretty and perfect for summer, but it will transition nicely into fall under a sweater or jacket.  I found this top to run to the small side of tts, but I still went with my normal S.  It is $44 with the current promo.

What have you been loving at Banana Republic?

Steals and Deals: The Shoe Edition

I would be remiss if I neglected to pass along some of the great finds and super steals that I've gotten, here we go.  :)

J Crew is offering some crazy good deals!  Currently sale is an additional 40% off, but there are a handful of goodies that are an additional 60% off the sale price.  Here are some of the steals that I was able to snag.

These shoes are adorable, with a hint of silver metallic sparkle and they are perfect to transition into fall.  They are super comfy and tts.  and the best part, with the current promo (SUMMER), good thru July 25, they ring up at only $24!!!  

I was also able to pick up the Colette d'Orsay Pump in denim dot, which I have to say was another great find!  I told a friend, they are like Cinderella's slipper...the fit is perfect and again tts.  These definitely come with the TweedandToile stamp of approval.  I would recommend snapping up these lovelies in as many colors and patterns as possible!  and especially at this price point...retail is $278, but with the current promo, get this, $56!!  

And last but not least, I grabbed the Elsie d'Orsay Gingham Leather Pumps...absolutely adorable and again super comfortable and tts.  I got all of these in my normal 7.  The d'Orsay style pump is so flattering and who doesn't love gingham?!  A winning combination and a winning price...again, retail is $278, but with the current promo, only $56!!  

There are also several other excellent deals...I might be tempted to jump back in again at these prices!

Was I right or was I right?!  Deals to good to pass up!  I would love to hear about your steals and deals!

Start At The Top: 5 Tops That Every Closet Should Have

Sometimes it's good to get back to the basics...and here are five staple tops that every closet should have...and if while taking inventory, you find a gap, here are some recommendations :)

1.  White Shirt
I love a white button down!  It's great as a classic stand alone, but also an excellent base for layering.

2.  Stripe Tee
The epitome of french chic

3.  Chambray Shirt
If you could only choose one, this would be it!  Dress it up or down and wear it year-round.

4.  Basic Sweater
You can wear it with everything from your favorite jeans to the classic pencil skirt.

5.  Printed Shirt
The perfect way to add a bit of panache to any outfit.
