Red, White & J.Crew

Uncle Sam is all tuckered out, which can only mean one thing…
It was a successful 4th of July weekend!

Fourth-of-July-Weekend-2014

Hope you enjoyed it! I had a relaxing weekend at a friend’s cabin on the lake and wore nothing but red, white and blue. Which reminded me… I really love this color combo–it’s surely influenced by my nautical obsession, too!

So even though the bunting and star-spangled beach towels are no longer necessary, sporting red, white, and blue (at least thru September) is acceptable in my book!

Here are my Red, White & J.Crew picks:

Style Crush: Gwyneth Paltrow

People magazine recently named Gwyneth Paltrow the best-dressed woman in the entire world. And it’s no wonder, our Gwyneth adores J. Crew as much as we do!

The JCR girls are always delighted when Gwyneth graces our inboxes with her regular goop newsletter (if you don’t get goop, you absolutely must. Sign up here). But this week, this week was a very special occasion. You see, J. Crew partnered with goop to give us some fantastic fall wardrobe ideas leaving us lusting for the entire Fall ’12 collection (even more so than we were already).

Back to Crew

Fall is, in my opinion, one of the most stylish seasons. With temperatures comfortable enough to layer pieces without being hidden by outerwear, you can really let your personality come through. Although it’s bittersweet to see sweaters in store windows already, back-to-school time is the best excuse to stock up for a fresh start. J.Crew’s fall arrivals started trickling in in mid-July, teasing customers with perfectly preppy looks that it’s not quite time for yet.

The most versatile must-have? A cozy cardigan in a neutral shade. Whether you layer it over a dress, pair it with a flirty blouse, or just slip it over a cami and Minnies for a comfy day in the library, you can’t go wrong!

Next, let’s talk cashmere… specifically, the cashmere Tippi sweater. With a myriad color choices (seriously, we’re talking 5 shades of pink/purple) you can easily pair this with a fun necklace to stand out and still have your professor take you seriously (I’m talking to you, tube-top-in-class girl).

What better way to show off the remnants of your bronzy summer skin than a pale pink popover? Tucked into rolled-up jeans and complemented by a neutral shoe, it’s a great casual look for running around campus. Add some stand-out earrings or switch the flats for heels to meet up with friends for dinner!

A perfect all-American look for a chilly fall day: plaid shirt, jeans, boots, and a field jacket (a vest would be great, too!). Just grab your books and a latte and you’re ready to go!

Here is another great outfit made up by three staples you can get a ton of wear from individually. If I ever have to meet with an advisor, a professor, or anyone else that I’d like to see me in a professional light, I like to dress up a little bit – but by mixing up a schoolboy blazer with a feminine top, the look is still young and fresh.

So, tell me, what’s on your list for back-to-school?
