‘Tis the Season for Textures – Our Favorite Tweeds, Plaids, & Stripes.

If you know one thing about our fashion sensibilities, it’s probably that’s we’re drawn to the classics. For fall + winter, that means tweeds and plaids, cotton and wool. And then there’s our perennial favorite – stripes. Whether layered under sweaters and vests or incorporated as thicker sweaters or coats, stripes are always on standby.

Tweeds
These cold temps aren’t going away anytime soon. Tweeds provide the weight and warmth you need to combat to frigid temps in style.

These chic dresses and jackets are perfectly suited for wearing to work. Then, just add some bling and you’re on your way to holiday parties!

I’ve been finding so many ways to style the Lady Jacket in Metallic Tweed. For one, the bracelet sleeves make it easy to show off a pop of color. And the mannequin at J.Crew SoHo posed a style challenge – wear the lady jacket like a cape. Challenge, accepted.

For this iteration, I’d like to thank Jenna Lyons, Jackie O and Anne Hathaway’s wardrobe stylist for the inspiration. These Over-the-Knee Boots only look high-end, on major sale ($64.50) – snatch up a pair while you still can!

Plaids
Must be the holiday season, because plaids are present throughout the home. These Pottery Barn throws come in the prettiest color combinations, and these oversized Target pillows add a splash of Christmas cheer to our brown leather sectional.

Moving on to festive attire, J.Crew does it again! We’ll take one of each of the following, please:

Stripes
Winter, spring, summer or fall – stripes are 100% appropriate for every season. For the dead of winter (hate to break it to you, it’s upon us), opt for cozy knits and use your cotton Bretons as layering pieces under sweaters, scarves and vests.

When it comes to stripes, Saint James is the gold standard. J.Crew has been collaborating with Saint James for years, and we adore the collections season after season. This season, it’s the Saint James for J.Crew Slouchy T-Shirt that is really catching our eye. Also comes in a short sleeve slouchy version, in 4 fun colors!

While a serious investment, here’s what you can feel extra good about when growing your Saint James collection: Careful attention is given to every step of the manufacturing process. For example, after each part of the shirt is cut, the pieces are then applied to a needled table, which allows for each stripe to be perfectly aligned from front of the shirt to back. Talk about a lot of love and personal attention! Read more on the Saint James website.

Saint James sells their tried-and-true pieces, such as nautical shirts and knits on their website, saintjamesboutique.com. Here’s a sampling of our faves:

Anthropologie: Use code LETSGO to get 30% off your entire purchase. Quick side note – rounding all of these sales up for you all is really hard because they are SO AMAZING and now I want to buy EVERYTHING. Okay moving on…..if there was any store that could persuade me to wear a velvet jumpsuit, it would be Anthro.

Gap: TGIF50. Nope, I didn’t type that wrong, that is the code that will get you 50% off site wide at Gap. Personally, I’m a huge fan of their denim and lounging gear *insert thumbs up emoji here*.

Dear Santa… Holiday Gift Ideas 2016

The-JCR-Girls-Holiday-Wishlist

What do you want for Christmas?
Ummm… IDK…

Sound familiar? Have a point of view already! There are tons of fantastic options out there, and you don’t want errands (mall returns) for Christmas, do you? Instead, opt for items you actually want and will use. Some food for thought below!

Cashmere Wrap

This oversize cashmere wrap (currently 40% off!) is perfect for traveling – keeping you chic and cozy as you jet off for business or pleasure. Comes in five color options (I honestly can’t choose, they are all so versatile!). Here’s another very similar option to consider: Fringe Cashmere Wrap.

diptyque candles and fragrance


They smell amazing. And, when you’re done with ‘em, they make super trendy pencil cups, tiny vases, or vessels to store your Q-tips. #recycling.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
Dyson-Hair-Dryer

The hair dryer of the future will *only* set you (or Santa) back $400.

Hunter Wellies


If you’ve had your eyes on Hunter Original High Gloss Boots, you’ll be happy to hear there are new color options in stock! I have the Original Black Gloss, but Graphite Gloss, Dark Slate, and Military Red are oh-so-tempting, too. Also think the short Sperry ‘Saltwater’ Waterproof Rain Boots are cute-as-can-be.

La Mer


Confession: I’ve never owned any La Mer products, but from the rave reviews, I trust they’re onto something. While definitely a splurge, take advantage of holiday offers and gift sets.

Le Creuset


All I need is one of everything, and we’ll probably have the next Julia Child on our hands. Probably.

M. Gemi Shoes



I’ve never owned a pair of M. Gemi shoes, but something tells me they’re magic. Enjoy $50 off every pair until Monday!

Sail to Sable Dresses
I mean, how hard is it to pick just one?

Now that we’ve hopefully inspired your “gift-to-self” or “Dear Santa…” list, what else should we consider gifting this season? Share your favorite gift items in the comments below!

Trend to Try: Velvet

As soon as my hunt for a good deal on a flight home begins, so does the search for the perfect Christmas day outfit. This year, I have not yet had any luck with the former, but the latter was solved quite easily when I began seeing velvet pieces everywhere (LOFT has an amazing selection and with 40% of EVERYTHING right now, you can’t pass up trying this trend out!).

To shop our favorite velvet pieces just click the plus sign icon in the images!

Let’s all agree that pink velvet shoes need to become a staple item in all of our closets…
