Oh. My. Gosh. Remember how I said that I wasn’t really loving J.Crew this past spring and summer? Well, they’ve turned it around, people! Hide your freaking wallets. I accidentally walked into their store in the 900 Shops in Chicago earlier this week after a meeting and walked out with a large, and very full, bag. OOPS! Early birthday present to myself?? I tried to narrow down what I bought, but I just couldn’t. (And my online shopping cart is also filled with so many more goodies I missed in the store. AAAH!) It’s all SO good. And I somehow rationalized it in my head… It’s all for fall and it gets really freaking cold here in Chicago so I’m going to need these sweaters, you know?? And New York ate all of my flats over the past few years!!
I picked up the September Style Guide when I was in store (apparently I didn’t do a very good job of changing my address…) and I think I’ve torn out almost every single page for my inspiration board. (Even some of the kids and mens!) It was shot entirely in Paris, so naturally, I’m obsessed. I feel like an addict, but I just can’t get enough J.Crew right now. And I’ll tell you what, it feels good to be back on the J.Crew wagon! (Well, mentally anyway. My wallet doesn’t feel the same, but it’ll get over it. I hope.)
