The Crew

Fall denial continues in full force, and I swear, I wasn't even that cold. Look, I'm wearing a closed toe shoe, if that isn't acceptance of cooler weather I don't know what is...

This is my J.Crew look, by hand and by thrift - it certainly beats their list prices!

And I got another bracelet from American Eagle for free -- the one I got lost a rhinestone, so I brought it back to exchange it and all the bracelets had gone on sale -- three for $10.

a new spot... looks kind of the same... dock and dog dock and dog dock and dog dock and dog dock and dog

I love gingham shirts - is this one thrifted? I always fall in love with the ones at J. Crew, but I just can't get over their prices, even when they're on sale.

Cute outfit, ideally like the blue gingham shirt. It's great when you can find classic/staple pieces when thrifting because you're right, it sure beats the list prices!!

JewishGirlBlog said...

Nicely done!! J.Crew's prices make me very sad sometimes---WHY NUMBER TWO PENCIL SKIRT WHY---so it's nice to see you getting the better of them.

Rebecca said...

I wish J. Crew would have lower sale prices, because I love their clothes so much. I like the checks paired with plaid.

Amber Blue Bird said...

jcrew is wicked expensive. Thrifting is definitely the way to go with their brand. Cute look and its nice to see you embracing the cooler weather :)

Tamra {walkswithBella} said...

Silver Strands said...

J Crew - definitely a favorite of mine!

Shawna said...

Such a cute look, I love the mix of pattern. What a great purse. I was just at the Georgetown J Crew and they were pairing pattern shirts like this with outfits just like this. They added a blazer and a belt over the blazer. Either way its looks super cute.

I love how prepay this outfit is, girl I am sooo glad the temperatures are going down, today we had low 60's it was really nice, Fall and Winter are my favorite seasons. =D

Bella said...

You're a better woman than I am. It is so cold, I am only wearing tights and boots now. Booooo! :(

Rhianne said...

the last photo is my favourite, I have so many photos of my parents dog looking the opposite direction to everyone else. you look lovely too

Alex Elizabeth said...

Mannnn why does it look like such a nice fall everywhere but where I am? Jealous. I'm still doing no tights but if it goes too far into the 50s I'll have to bring them out. It would be awesome if we managed to hold out until November though!

Diana Mieczan said...

Oh what a fantastic outfit, sunshine. You look oh-so beautiful! Happy Friday. xo

I have the same gingham top! I wore it out one night and ran into a guy wearing the exact same shirt! (Technically his was from the men's department at AE, but it was the exact same fabric.) Talk about embarassing. I never thought I would have a 'Who Wore It Best' showdown with a guy.
