Black is the New Black

Because black never goes out of style.

If you’re updating your wardrobe on a budget, invest in the classics (but we’re not talking boring black basics here). Here’s a new take on classic black:

Speaking of black… Abercrombie & Fitch has recently lifted their ban on the color black [this Refinery29 article provides the deets].

So the question is: would you shop there again? My immediate answer is NO, NEVER!

But I mean these ponte pants and culottes are pretty on point…

Friday Favorites

I hope everyone had a great week. I have been easing back into my routine after a busy end to October full of visitors in NYC. Here are a few things we are loving right now to take you through the final stretch before the weekend:

This “Cups Song” cover. I never really got tired of the song, but I know it’s probably passing its prime. I’ve been watching this video non-stop and even if you were over the song, this will make you un-over it. If that’s even a thing. You get what I mean, just watch it!

theSkimmI don’t know how I didn’t know about this before…my roommate just introduced it to me a few days ago. I really do have the best of intentions with keeping up with current events, but I usually get distracted by a thought mid-first paragraph and give up. theSkimm is great because they take all the big stories and summarize them for you in one short and sweet daily newsletter to start off your morning with. Sorry if this is old news to everyone else, but I’m pretty excited about it.

Sales at J. Crew. J. Crew is offering 25% off your purchase of $100 or more. This sweater and these boots have already made their way into my shopping cart! And, as to not be overshadowed, J. Crew Factory is one-upping their older sibling and offering 30% off of everything. So yeah, I had to tell my paycheck to not get to comfortable in my bank account because it won’t be there long.

Fall is in full swing. I’m honestly pretty excited that the crisp fall temps are finally here. I am happy (for now) to break out tights and boots and all of my outerwear. Plus, I mean, look at these colors. Even if you hate the cold, doesn’t this just make you love it a little more for a second?

Lady in Red

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

Lady in Red | The JCR Girls

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.
