Style Inspiration | Spring 2013

J Crew Picks 2013 Spring
{All images courtesy of style.com. View full look book here}
1. Mixing Patterns. Two of my favorites: polka dots and floral prints. I haven't quite gotten the hang of this trend yet, but I'm looking forward to trying it out! I may consider these polka dot tights, which are a subtle way to incorporate more than one pattern into your look.

2. Stripes and MintStripes will always be a style staple, but I'm so glad to see mint green hues back again this spring. Seriously, those heels are incredible! Shop my mint picks here and here.

3. High Waisted Skirts. I was thrilled to see feminine high waisted skirts in the J. Crew collection. I'm a sucker for them and believe they will never go out of style. My favorite place to shop for high waisted skirts are thrift stores--I always find well-made vintage skirts at an amazing price. I'm loving this skirt on shopruche.com.

4. Brocade Fabric. I've been loving brocade for the past year, though I'm normally not a huge fan of metallic,  I think the mix of a feminine pattern and contemporary shimmer gets me every time. Shop my current brocade pick here.

*PS Did you know J. Crew has an online factory store? Amazeballs!

  
Have you ever experienced finding that perfect dress or pair of heels that seem to have your name and personal style written all over it? THAT was exactly what happened when I found these J. Crew heels on Poshmark. The seller said she "had a friend in the company" and snagged this pair before their spring debut later this year (I'm assuming the company had a sample sale). I purchased them for a 1/4 of what their retail price will be. Eyelet leather, the signature "iced lilac" shade, and a chunky heel--J. Crew can do no wrong.

  1. Hi again! I really like your layout! I have to say number 4 is my favorite! I love those pants! I am a huge JCrew fan, though I don't know if I actually own anything JCrew! I have seen a pair of shiny pants on LC's blog as well! They must really be in this season! I will certainly have to look for a pair, though I am a maxxanista! ;)

    1. Hey! I completely agree. Bargain hunting is my favorite! When I buy J. Crew, it's usually at a major discount. Thanks so much for stopping by my little ol' blog! xoxo
