1984 called, they want your rugby back. This new rugby from J. Crew is perfectly updated for 2017 with a nostalgic nod to 1984. It is one of the new arrivals that I am loving (in fact, so much, that I got it in pink as well). I styled it simple with my favorite new sneakers and white jeans.
Please join me and Amy ( of @howtojcrew fame) at J. Crew at The Grove in Los Angeles this Saturday from 11 am to 2 pm. We will be on hand to style looks and take a look at the new arrivals. We will have refreshments, a special discount and the first ten people to arrive and mention Amy or me will receive a $25 J. Crew gift card. If you are not in the Los Angeles area look for a special giveaway on Instagram soon.
I am not usually a fan of floral patterns, but there is something about The Flower Guy, Michael De Feo’s, work that is architectural. I bought all three of the designs he did in a collaboration (more on that here) with J. Crew. I recently took my Flower Guy teeto lunch with my mom at Flower Child.
I really did not want to like the just launched New Balance for J. Crew active wear. I have a lot of active wear already. I was lured in by the color and styles (Hello, navy pattern mix!). Then I tried it on…It is ridiculously comfortable and the rise and waistband are at the perfect spot. The price point is just over half of some other active wear brands, to boot. My only concern became how much to buy and how I would make room for it, as I wanted it all. The look below is going to be on constant repeat. My other active wear is about to feel neglected.
Tied with my love of leopard is my love of blue and white, particularly blue and white stripes. I am always excited when I spot a new take on the classic blue and white. This J. Crew shirt has a club collar and the fabric is a textured jacquard with the coolest buttons. The jeans are also a new J. Crew cut and style called the straightaway. I love the exposed button fly. I had forgotten how comfortable a button fly can be.
