The Look For Less

You've all heard me blather on and on about J Crew's Abstract Fair Isle Zip Cardigan...love it! Currently, it's on sale and available in limited sizes. (size down one to two sizes)  However, if you love the look but still aren't crazy about the price tag, check out the Meander-Patterned Cardigan from Forever 21.

While not an exact match, it still offers the same vibe.  and wait for it...it's only $19.99!!  




So, if you've been looking for your next cozy, go-to sweater...mission accomplished!  and even with some leftover moolah in your pocket.

Happy Shopping!

Styling Inspiration with Teddie and Georgie

Today's styling sets feature J Crew's new Teddie pants and the Georgie Suede Loafers in Rustic Mint.

I adore the new silhouette of the Teddie pants...so chic and modern with it's slim leg that ends in an ever-so-slight flare.  I'm definitely feeling multiples in these.

The Georgie Loafer in rustic mint, another classic with a twist...traditional loafer styling in supple suede, but in a fun color that's perfect now and later.

















How about you, are Teddie and Georgie your new favorite loves?

Styling Inspiration with New J Crew Arrivals

I promised styling sets with some of my favorite new J Crew releases...the creative juices were flowing, so I'm going to split them into two separate posts.

Today's styling ideas all feature the Pencil Skirt in Tweed with Fringe and the Motorcycle Jacket in Tweed with Fringe.  As I said yesterday, two classic pieces with a bit of edge, that are perfect paired together or equally as fab as stand alone pieces.

So without further adieu....

The obvious:


Pencil Skirt as a stand alone:




Motorcycle Jacket as a stand alone:





So there you have it...and that's just a tiny sampling of what can be done with these two pieces.  Both of them are perfect examples of investment pieces that mix and match with so many items already in your closet and both are sure to be wardrobe workhorses!

New Arrivals at J Crew: What Caught My Eye

Woohoo...I've been counting down the days for the new J Crew arrivals to debut and they did not disappoint.  There is all kinds of goodness...new prints, colors and styles!  Here are just a few of the things that caught my eye.


This dress is at the top of my list...I love everything about it, from its figure flattering, classic styling to the fringe detail!  and it's tweed!! (thumbs up)  It does have an exposed back zip, which I don't love, but its not a deal breaker.


The perfect shade of mint...not to bright, not to blue, not to green...just right!  These will be perfect to wear now and later into spring and summer.  (an added bonus...these fall under the SHOPNOW promo with an additional 40% off)



Me thinks, me sees a pattern emerging here...tweed and fringe! Haha  But seriously, two great classic pieces with a bit of edge.  They would be perfect paired together or you could really put them to work and make the most of your investment by styling them separately as well.



I am loving this new, fresh silhouette...a straight, cropped leg with an ever-so-slight flare.  I'll take one in every color please!  :)


I have yet to meet a striped shirt that I didn't love!  and tipped in ruffles?!  um, yes please!


Good ole Tippi, she's quite a gal!  Classic styling and perfect for layering...and now with cute little button accents on the shoulders.  The only hard thing is deciding on which colorway.




Another gem that I can't refuse is tortoise...both this necklace and bracelet are beautiful paired with pave crystal.

Check back later in the week for some styling sets with my favorite new releases.  

How about you...what are you loving from J Crew's latest release?

Make A Statement

Old man winter has definitely shown up...yesterday morning we woke up to falling snow in northern central North Carolina.  and tonight the temps are forecast to dip into the low teens.  Brrrr!

Cooler weather calls for extra warmth, and since that's the first and sometimes only thing people see, why not make a statement...a fun color, an eye-catching print or some added embellishment for interest.

Here are a few that come with the Tweed and Toile stamp of approval...



Loft Faux Fur Collar Coat (runs large...I sized down)










Loft Leopard Jacquard Coat (to the large size of tts...I sized down)
