Clockwise, starting from the top corner left (the chic lady in the camo pants):

1. A classic piece from J.Crew – the schoolboy blazer in black – is now close to 60% off, or $82 with the code “WEEKEND”, down from $200. This is a classic item that you can wear basically year round – throw it on over a simple tee or blouse and it just pulls an outfit together. A great price on a fall staple.

2. Very chic Jimmy Choo suede loafers, now 40% off, or around $480.

3. A super easy and comfortable tee shirt dress from Splendid, now 30% off or under $70. If you’re under 5’9 this dress won’t look as short on you and it’s a super easy piece to throw on while temperatures are still hot. Continue Reading

Wardrobe Staple: Denim Shorts

I was recently asked to recommend some denim shorts, a task I feel eminently qualified to do as in the summer I basically live in these things. My favorite long time pair are cuffed shorts that I converted into…
