Shopping and Dreaming

Just as an FYI for everybody – J.Crew is giving 30% all final sale items through today!

Typically final sale makes me nervous because I always like to try things on before I buy.  I’m a little less nervous with J.Crew because I’ve learned what sizes and styles of theirs work on me.

I went through the sale this morning and put together two outfits with some of my favorite items from the sale – one dressy and one casual.

For a dressy outfit I love a great pencil skirt paired with a classic button down that has a little twist with the animal print.  Add a skinny belt around the waist and a pop of color in a necklace and I’d be all set for a dinner out, day in my imaginary office, or a happy hour with the ladies.  The best part about all the pieces above is that they could be paired with a million other items.

For a more casual look I would recycle the belt and sunnies from above, trade out the skirt for some bright skinny jeans to be paired with an equally bright sweater and fun leopard wedges.  Can’t forget a cute bracelet and classic bag that would go with everything!

Just can’t get enough of J.Crew in my wardrobe.

Happy Shopping!

Five Favorites

1.) Neutral Palette of Stripes

Perfect grouping of different weights and fabric for all summer weather.  I’m going to live in these.

2.) Josie Maran Argan Oil

This little bottle has saved my skin multiple times.  It works in the dry Denver weather as well as post water time when it feels like the combination of water and sun has sucked your skin dry.

Putting oil on your face is admittedly a little terrifying the first time as it goes against anything you’ve ever been told but totally worth it.  I also use it on my cuticles, hair, feet etc.  It’s organic and lasts forever.

3.) Adorable Travel Tissues

I picked these up at Target yesterday because I simply could not resist the packaging.  I’m such a sucker.  I’ve got them stashed bedside, in my car, and in a few bags.

Are you kidding me with that owl.  So cute.

4.) The Best Chocolate in the World

These little nuggets are made in Boulder, CO and are to die for.  I know you can buy them at Whole Foods here, but I’m not sure if they’re a nation wide item.  Regardless…seek them out because they are ridiculous.

You can tell by the fact that it’s mangled and empty that this one is my favorite.  Dark chocolate and sea salt people.  It’s a no-brainer.

5.) Organized Jewelry Drawer

With the arrival of our new bedroom furniture came days and days of rearranging.  One of my favorite things to happen was the space I created for my jewelry.  The organizers are felt lined and stackable and can be found at the wonderful Container Store.

P.S. You got a little snippety sneak peek at our bedroom redecoration today via the sliver of drawer and duvet cover.  I wrote down my goals for June and finishing our bedroom is numero uno!  Hopefully more photo’s to come soon.
