J Crew Factory Fall 2014 Picks.

J Crew Factory is having a massive sale going on right now

and I thought it would be fun to post a few of my outfit picks.

Hope you enjoy!

j crew fall 2014 1

I am not a t-shirt under a blazer kind of girl but thought it would be fun to try with the Merci tee.

This is how I am planning to wear it and will probably add my slip on white Converse Chuck Taylors.


j crew fall 2014 4

I love these necklace pairings with the winter white sweater and red blouse.

Perfect for Thanksgiving and the holiday parties that are around the corner.


j crew fall 2014 2

What doesn’t say Fall is here like a tweed blazer with elbow patches?

Can you say CLASSIC?

I think every lady needs one of these in her wardrobe.


j crew fall 2014 5

Black watch plaid is one of my favorite tartan patterns.

Try it with a black or navy blouse/sweater paired with riding boots and tights and you are good to go!


j crew fall 2014 3

I picked a few black items because they are generally a work horse item in most wardrobes.

I am loving the zippered sweater and coated skinny denim.

It’s slightly out of my comfort zone but I like

to do that every now and then. It’s city chic.

A Fair Isle sweater gets me every time.

My Favorite Summertime Drink.

I thought I would share the secret and it is a lot easier than I ever expected it to be.
