Lady in Red

It’s November in Minnesota. Time to turn up the heat.

Lady in Red | The JCR Girls

1. Photo // 2. Taryn Dress in Vivid Poppy (99.99!) // 3. Majesty Peacoat in Decadent Red // 4. Rebecca Minkoff Hudson Moto Mini Bag // 5. Etta Suede Pumps in Wild Beet // 6. Scented Candle “Be Dazzling” // 7. NARS Lipstick Jungle Red // 8. Classic Q Natasha Bag

I love the color red. My favorite sweater is red. Favorite coat – red. Favorite handbag? Gazpacho. (In layman’s terms – RED). I also don’t hate Taylor Swift. And there’s just something about red nail polish and red lipstick that is always RIGHT. Amiright?

With the holidays growing ever closer it just makes me want to surround myself with cozy red coats and holly jolly party dresses. And a glass or three of wine. Red wine.



P.S. If you’re like me and really like red, you’ll probably like this Pinterest Board.

J.Crew’s Rise to Social Media Stardom

Hey pretty ladies!
I’ll let you in on a little secret: I daylight as a Social Light; moonlight as a JCR Girl and this little project blends my two loves: Social Media Strategy and J.Crew fashion/style/photography and the genius work of Jenna, Mickey, and Co.

At any rate…
I’m excited to share my latest “Case Study” with those of you who share my same fascination with social media (The future of communications! The future is NOW!) and my long-term loyalty to J.Crew.

I’ve watched J.Crew transform from anti-social to social sophisticate in zero point two seconds. I chronicled the transformation on my company blog (The Social Lights®) for your viewing pleasure:


Speaking of social, did you catch a sneak peek of the November Style Guide on Pinterest yet?

New York Necessities

After a long break from blogging and a big move out to Brooklyn, I’m finally back. I’ve been out here for almost three weeks, but only a little over a week on my own. I know it’s going to take awhile to catch on to the way things are done in NY, but I’ve already found a few things you can’t live without here. Whether your visiting or relocating here, I think anyone would benefit from making sure they have these few basic things.

Walking shoes.

I walked everywhere living in Chicago for four years. Then I moved to Milwaukee and only drove. As I’m getting used to my feet being my main form of transportation and being judged by my past Chicago self, I’m accepting that a good pair of walking shoes is required. (Maybe someday I’ll be able to prance around in heels. Today is not that day, tomorrow isn’t either).

These have been the ones saving me the past couple of weeks:

Navigation Apps

In the time that my mom was here helping me move in I lost complete faith in GoogleMaps. Thank goodness we were driving the several times it pointed us in the wrong direction. Per the tips of a few real New Yorkers, I’ve downloaded some more helpful apps to help me find my way.

Reusable Bag and Hand Sanitizer

For the days you’re on the go and picking lots of things up, it’s much easier to throw things in a cute, reusable bag rather than toting plastic bags around. Oh and hand sanitizer because I love New York, but it’s not clean.

Baggu Canvas Tote

So that’s all I’ve got for only being here two weeks. Any real New Yorkers are welcome to comment and share the necessities you can’t live without in the city day-to-day.

Oh, and you need hipster glasses. Well, not really, but yeah actually you really do.

Happy Hump Day

This is no secret to anyone who I know…I love camels (see the photo below, one of the most exciting moments of my life). They are my favorite animal and I dream of someday having my own and naming him Lil Guy.

Camel via The JCR Girls Now, thanks to Geico, many people celebrate Wednesdays with reference to one of their newest commercials featuring an overly excited camel. It makes me happy that even if it is fleeting, people are as obsessed with camels as I am. And of course because they never stop doing things to make me love them, J. Crew has the perfect sweater to observe every Hump Day in (or just to show your love for the best animal ever).

J. Crew Camel Sweater via The JCR Girls It’s just too perfect.

What do you think of critter adorned apparel? Do you love it as much as we do?
