taking a cue from jcrew.

Last night, my friend Lauren and I glanced through her February JCrew catalogue as we semi-watched the end of the Superbowl and cooked up the most amazing bite-size s’mores with Perry and Meghan (Pinterest has changed our lives… or at least our get-togethers). We were smitten with the bright color palettes, creative pattern mixing, and bold bags and accessories. We decided we both need skinny leopard belts, more vibrantly hued pants, and a bevy of candy-colored ballet flats. For starters.

While I rarely shop at JCrew — as in, my last purchase was over three years ago, and it was from an outlet  — I always defer to their catalogues and website for new styling ideas. That Jenna Lyons is a genius, and her style guides are cool, sophisticated, and completely wearable. I took bits and pieces from the catalogue as inspiration when I dressed myself through my Superbowl food hangover this morning.

I’m craving more color in my closet for spring. I fed this craving by binging on colorful pants and shorts at Kohl’s Saturday afternoon after a whirlwind day at the shop {three cheers for retail therapy!}. All on clearance, of course. I’m a reformed shopaholic, remember?

It’s gonna get Rainbow Brite up in here, ya’ll.

  2. Oh, the new J.Crew catalog is beautiful and I want everything… meaning, I will need to thrift similar pieces! I agree, I want more color in my wardrobe. Love those yellow shoes :) Happy Monday!
