j.crew new arrivals // 5 looks i’m loving

As a large part of my job is scouting out fun fashion finds on the internet, checking out new arrivals from my favorite retailers has become of my favorite “tasks.” I call it virtual window shopping, and even when I don’t buy a single thing (which is often) the online outing always manages to add a bit of fun to my day.

J.Crew just released an amazing new collection filled with classic cuts, vibrant colors, and plenty of vacation-ready pieces. It has me dreaming of fun outings and summer evenings when this is all behind us! I had so much fun creating a few looks around the new releases in January, and I hope this April edition transports you for a minute or two. Enjoy!

I live in all-white ensembles year-round, but especially love all of the fun you can have with them during spring and summer! Keep things classic with this effortless linen top and spice it up with a few fun accessories. I’m obsessed with the print of this headband!

I’m all about loungewear these days, but especially pieces I’ll continue to get use out of post-quarantine! This bright pink set just makes me smile and would be the coziest ensemble for a lazy evening at the beach. I actually own the jacket, and can’t wait to add the matching shorts to my wardrobe! And can we just talk about these striped sandals…?! So cute.

Bahama Mama, am I right?! I am head over heels for this gorgeous, vibrant red. Pair this sleek and sophisticated one piece with this darling cover up, a fabulous sunhat and some cute raffia sandals and you’re beach ready! Dreaming of the day I can wear this sunny ensemble.

I’ve never been one to shy away from color, and this ensemble sure has a bunch of it! Orange and pink is one of my favorite color combinations, and I love how this headband pulls them together! And I’m a firm believer that no matter what you have on, gold accessories always take it next level.

P.S., I own these shorts in mint, and let me tell you… they are fabulous. (Seen on my Instagram here.) They have a perfect, relaxed fit that is flattering and classic, and so hard to come by these days. I usually size up in shorts so they aren’t tight, but you don’t need to in these! I wear an XS and they have a perfect, easy fit.

This dress is a bit of a splurge, but it sureee is a stunner! That pale pink, lilac-y hue is my absolute favorite shade this season. Pair it with all things neutral, like these adorable espadrille sneakers. I’m also ordering this belt stat to give some shape to the many waistless dresses I’m wearing lately!

Which ensemble would you like to break out first, and more importantly… to where? The lakehouse? Your favorite downtown dinner spot? I’m holding out hope that we’ll be there soon!

In the meantime, if you’re in the mood to shop, J.Crew is offering 30% off a huge selection of pieces (including many of the ones featured above!) with the code 5DAYS. If shopping isn’t something you’re doing right now, more power to you! The great news is J.Crew always seems to have an amazing sale going on, and I’m sure there will be more fabulous new arrivals in our future.

Here are a few more favorites from this release:

    Adorable!! You should come dress me. Love your alter ego too (lol) — we are moving to Charleston next month and I am so excited to let my inner Miami snowbird live her fullest life on the coast!

    Just read that J Crew is declaring bankruptcy. This is happening in clothing retail because many of these companies have been propped up by loans for the past several years that they need to pay off, and now with the loss of sales during the current crisis … Some of my favorite classic clothing retailers went out of business all of a sudden last year and I purchased basically all the clothes on my wish lists knowing it was literally my last chance to have a complete wardrobe. Figured it would last me for years to come. Looks like it might be the same scenario with J Crew now, so I would say buy all the clothing items you want / need now because liquidations happen really fast. It’s sad because J Crew has such good quality, CLASSIC basics that don’t go out of style.
