I don’t think there’s any catalog I get more excited to dive into than when the shiny J.Crew one arrives at my doorstep. I’m so intrigued to see what fab pieces are sprinkled throughout it for the upcoming season. The edgy touch upon their classic pieces this Fall has me swooning over every. single. item.

As you probably know, I have a weakness for a good statement necklace. I’ve been sporting a now sold out Anthropologie piece with practically everything this season. When it comes to chic jewelry, J.Crew always delivers, so naturally the latest statement necklace selection to hit their Factory store sale made me more than a little giddy. These fab finds are a major steal and a great foundation to any summer wardrobe–with an additional 30% off they’re hard to resist! [Use code: SALE30]

A pastel appropriate manicure.

I can’t even begin to express to you my obsession with TJ Maxx. It started as a child, I have always had an eye for unique finds, and there is no better to explore. Carrying a selection of all my favorite things fashion, baking accessories, and home decor, it will always be my fave one-stop shop. With the exception of the pastel mani, all photos were finds from a recent trip this week.

Friday Finds

  1. Zoya Nail Polish in Tobey. Lately I have been all about pops of Barbie pink. This non-toxic color is a new obsession.
  2. butter LONDON in Fiver & Fruit Machine. Remember mood rings? My nail polish mood changes season to season. In the Summer, I want candy pops of color, during the Winter I crave deep, dark hues, and in the Spring I soft pastels are my signature. I adore the 3-Free brands new Spring hues. Pastel shades easily compliment a mani-pedi, I love the punchy lilac hue for my toes & icy mint on my hands.
  3. JewelMint Flores Collar Necklace. This pop of neon is the perfect edgy piece to pull any Spring look together.
  4. The Middle Part. I decided to change it up at a trip to the salon yesterday, and opted for a middle part for the first time since junior high. I’m loving these fab middle parts as well. [1, 2, 3]

Polka Dots & Mint

The polka dot find from the J.Crew event I hosted has become a serious asset to my wardrobe. From a chilly night in Pennsylvania last week, to a sunny day in Florida this week (yes, you CAN wear white denim/dresses/etc. year round!), this printed top screams multifunction. Eager to share with you, I searched the dotted popover but found that it had been sold out online. Luckily, I found similar finds that are seasonless must-haves, too!

**Update, the J.Crew Polka Dot Peplum is back in stock! Swoop it up while you can.
