My J Crew wishlist:
|Sleeveless Drapey Top in Cove Coral £98|
This would look fab dressed down with ankle skimming pale blue jeans and navy/tan strappy sandals
Or dress up for a special event with the matching skirt below
|Surf Skirt in cove coral £128|
This skirt is in a neoprene fabric and would look good dressed down with a grey t-shirt and strappy tan sandals, or worn for work with a navy silk puff sleeve blouse and navy heels or worn with matching top above.
|Embroidered tassel top in Chambray £79.50|
A great holiday staple top, wear with short denim cut offs or white skinny length jeans and flat gold sandals.
|Embroidered Tunic in Chambray £118|
Another classic boho top in beautiful fabric, look stunning on I have ordered this top.
|Merino Tippi Sweater in Heather Dusk £69.50|
A great basic will go with anything from slouchy distressed boyfriend jeans to a floral pencil skirt, a capsule wardrobe must have.
|Vintage Denim jacket in Melrose wash £150|
Alex from The Frugality bought this at the event and it looks fab on, would be so versatile, wear with maxis, shorts, white jeans and throw over cocktail dresses.
|Vintage Straight jean in Abbot wash £128|
|Flower Fan Necklace £49.50|
|Crystal Venus Flytrap Necklace £98|
|Sophie Small Body Crossbag £89|
I have selected the items above as I see them as capsule collection pieces that will see you through a few seasons if not more, J Crew is on the pricey side but the styling and details just make each piece a little different and a little bit special.
It was a fab evening and a great opportunity to catch up with lovely bloggers including Keri from Chronicles of Dolliedaydream, to talk all things fashion!
I love a little trip into town for a little inspiration, are you a J Crew fan, have you bought anything from there, if money were no object my wardrobe would be full of lots of lovely items but as that is not the case a girl can dream and maybe buy one or two pieces!!
I would love to hear your thoughts and comments as always, Frances xx
