Trend to Try: Jumpsuits

I think everyone has a few silly things that they get hung up on and can’t let go of. I’m a little embarrassed to share that for a long time, I was obsessed with wanting to be able to wear jumpsuits. Weird I know. I love how the look is effortless and a bit quirky, but due to the jumpsuit’s one-piece nature, my one size on the top and one size on the bottom body did not get along with it. Well, thanks to some new versions of the trend being introduced (and many months of hot yoga and barre classes ;) ) like wide-legged and more relaxed fits…IT HAPPENED, I could wear a jumpsuit!

Naturally, my obsession has now moved from wanting to wear them to purchasing them to wear. The great thing is that because they are so popular right now you can find them nearly everywhere at every price point.

J.Crew Challenge – Ratti Into the Wild Print

Exciting News! We’re happy to announce that The JCR Girls are participating in the latest #JCrewChallenge. We’re tasked with wearing 1 print, 5 ways, over the course of 5 days.

JCrew-Ratti-Print-Into-The-Wild

Follow along to see how we style the bright and cheery ‘Into the Wild’ print. This jungle-inspired motif was discovered in the archives of Ratti, one of Italy’s most renowned print houses. The rich colors were achieved using new digital printing technology, for an especially vibrant effect.

We’re thrilled that J.Crew has revived this amazing print, and can hardly wait to share our outfits with you. Tune in on Instagram as we kickoff the J.Crew Challenge (℅ our friends at @jcrew)!

I Can’t Believe That’s From…: Old Navy

One of my favorite things to do with my outfits is surprise people. Not necessarily with what I’m wearing (my style is pretty tame), but with where what I am wearing was purchased. It gives you a little sense of validation as far as your shopping skills go to hear someone say “I can’t believe you found that THERE!”.

I decided to do a post on this because the above reaction has been occurring more and more frequently when I’m wearing pieces from (drum roll please)…OLD NAVY. My roommate has actually said to me “please do not tell me that you bought that at Old Navy” because she really can’t believe that I’m finding all of these super cute pieces there. If you are looking to stay on trend on a budget and haven’t taken a look at what they have in awhile, make a trip there ASAP. Check out some of my faves below (apologies in advance for the number of items, but really I love pretty much everything):

After all of that, I didn’t even include workout or swim items. Which are also amazing and you should check out.

Let us know if you find any fun new pieces for your wardrobe at Old Navy in the comments below!

When Will Glossier Stretch Concealer and Generation G Lipsticks be Restocked? // July 2016

Mark your calendars! Glossier has announced that the sold-out Stretch Concealer and coveted Generation G Lipsticks will be restocked this July.

Glossier-Review-Generation-G-Lipstick

Demand overwhelmed supply very quickly, and only the first to add to cart were able to get their hands on these cult beauty favorites so far this year. I snatched up Generation G in ‘Crush’ and just can’t get enough. It is the perfect compromise between lipstick, lip stain, lip gloss and balm. I want to collect them all (and not run out of my current supply before July – we’ll see!).

Also on my list upon restock is Glossier Stretch Concealer. Based on the blogger reviews to date, I have no doubts that this product lives up to its promise!
Where-to-Purchase-Glossier

So, what is in stock?

  • The new Flavored Balm Dotcom Trio {for a limited time!} features three fun flavors in Rose, Cherry, and Mint.
  • Boy Brow (in all 3 shades!) is currently in-stock and ready for ation.
  • My new favorite face wash, Milky Jelly Cleanser, is also available. (My favorite travel option is Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes).
  • If you’re in need of a new mask (or just up for trying a bunch of options), the Mega Greens Galaxy Pack has received high marks, and I trust the Moisturizing Moon Mask is a keeper, too.
  • Glossier also recently debuted some darling merch, including sweatshirts, pink pouches, logo pins and terry headbands.

Shop Glossier here, and get 20% off your first purchase + Free Shipping (over $30) and Free Returns on everything.

Glossier Review: Skincare + Makeup Products

Glossier
Glossier is a modern beauty brand inspired by real life. We’re big fans of this mentality, given the “Style Tips for Real Life” angle we’ve woven into many posts over the years.

Glossier-Promo-Code

Glossier was founded by Emily Weiss, the blogger and CEO behind Into the Gloss (now leading the helm at Glossier, too). Her team of 35 employees (and counting) have set out to rethink, reclaim, and redefine beauty. Gotta love a bold and ambitious #GirlBoss!

The shift from blogging about beauty products to creating beauty products was a natural one. As they put it, “We are creating a highly edited collection of modern staples reflecting how you get ready every day, starting with the most important thing—a perfectly primed canvas (your skin!)—and working our way up.”

After hearing rave reviews of Glossier skincare products from many female friends (both on the Internet and IRL), we had to try them out. They are simple, straightforward and hard not to love!

Glossier-Promo-Code-Coupon

Glossier recently launched Phase II: Makeup. A 3-piece line including Generation G Lips, Stretch Concealer and Boy Brow. Like their skin care line, these beauty basics are designed to leave you fresh & glowing : )

The reviews of this new product line have us *adding to cart* as we speak!

If you’re new to Glossier, you’re eligible for 20% off your first purchase. Shop via ➞ http://bff.glossier.com/dJ7b8  to unlock your discount!

Did we mention it comes with adorable packaging complete with a sheet of Glossier stickers?

 

UPDATE: 4/20/16 – While the Stretch Concealer has been SOLD OUT for some time now, we were able to get our hands on Generation G Lip Color (in Crush), Boy Brow in Brown & the Mega Greens Galaxy Pack aka ‘juice cleanse for your face.’

Glossier-20-off-promo-code

As anticipated, we understand why these products have a cult-like following, and anxiously anticipate future product lines (and current ones coming back in stock)! Shop Glossier skincare and makeup on Glossier.com.

Nordstrom Bonus Points Events – Triple Points March 22-26!

It’s that time of year again! The Nordstrom Triple Points Event will take place March 22-26 across Nordstrom, Nordstrom.com, Nordstrom Rack, nordstromrack.com and HauteLook.

No time like the present to purchase at least one item on your wishlist! Here’s mine:
Nordstrom-Triple-Points-2

Soludos Espadrille Slip-On / Bobbi Brown Shimmer Gloss / RayBan Classic Wayfarer Polarized Sunglasses / Packable Straw HatMarc by Marc Jacobs New Q Natasha Crossbody Bag in Classic Black / Zoey Pleat A-line Skirt / Michael Kors Chronograph Bradshaw Bracelet Watch / Limited Edition NARS Blush Duo / Kate Spade New York Peephole One-Piece Swimsuit (also love it in stripes!)

If it’s Fyre Boots you’re after, I’d highly recommend their riding boot styles and weatherproof spray.  Frye-Boots-Nordstrom

If you’ve never owned a pair of Frye Boots, be warned, they require a bit of breaking in. In the end, so worth it!

I’m tempted by Kiehl’s Skincare Products…although I should only pick one.
Kiehls-at-Nordstrom-Concentrate Do you have a favorite among Midnight Recovery ConcentrateDermatologist Solutions™’ Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate, and ‘Clearly Corrective™’ Dark Spot Solution?

If you’re looking for a ‘little’ something, the Kate Spade Slim Portable Charger is a great option. Or, this phone Kate Spade Ice Cream iPhone Case.

Last but not least, I’m really feeling these beachy blue vibes…

Looks We Love – March 2016 – Tickle Me Pink

 

The-JCR-Girls-Instagram-Pink-Moodboard-Wishlist

J.Crew Italian Matte Underwire Bikini Top + Bottom in Bright Azelea / Kate Spade New York Ice Cream iPhone6 Case – Nordstrom / Kate Spade New York ‘Admit It’ iPhone6 Case at Nordstrom / J.Crew Collection Cashmere Long-Sleeve T-Shirt in Shocking Pink / J.Crew Vintage Cotton V-Neck T-Shirt in Pink Bouquet / Lilly Pulitzer UPF 50+ Sophie Dress / Soludos Espadrille Slip-Ons at Nordstrom.

With spring just around the corner (*Fingers Crossed*) I’m attracted to all things pretty & pink. While I’m totally on board with this ‘lighter later’ thing, tbh I’m still getting over the whole Daylight Savings ‘steal an hour’ situation. More daylight + warmer temps = more opportunities to soak up the sun–even if the opportunities are still few and far between.

In preparation for spring + summer, I’ll be introducing some more brights to my wardrobe (already ordered 3 x J.Crew Vintage Cotton V-Neck T-Shirts (neon dahlia, bright grotto, and white), and I’m already thinking neon citron and pink bouquet should be added to the collection ASAP.

While I’m not taking a spring break trip this year, I’ve learned my lesson when it comes to J.Crew Swimwear – shop early for best (i.e. any) selection. My next beach vacay is scheduled for mid-July, but I’ll be making my final decision shortly. Tempted by the bubble gum number above (I have the same style in cobalt and it’s fabulous), but this Kate Spade New York Nahant Shore Striped Bandeau One Piece Swimsuit is also on my radar… Comment below and help me choose. PLEASE!

Are you headed somewhere warm for spring break? Tag us on instagram @TheJCRGirls to show us what you’re packing (or, let’s be honest…drinking on the beach!) #5OClockSomewhere
