J.Crew x Mrs. Ladylike

August 3, 2016

Last Sunday I hosted lovely Columbus bloggers at J.Crew Easton for a fall preview event.  It’s always exciting to see a new collection and fall just happens to be one of my favorites.  The first rollout of the J.Crew collection gave an endless summer vibe, yet there were still pieces that could be transitioned into those early fall days.  The brushstroke print (shown below) is one that can seamlessly blend from summer to fall. I chose to dress it up with leopard d-orsay pumps and kept it classic with a perfect shirt.

There was no shortage of classic stripes, crisp white denim & tops, feminine ruffles, and of course chic shiny ponies (aka SHOES!) The collection also included J.Crew’s timeless pieces such as the perfect shirt, figure flattering denim & the Jackie cardigan.  I will try hold onto these summer days/nights for just a little while longer before thinking about anything heavier than featherweight cashmere! Since shopping can be exhausting, it’s important to keep those sugar levels up with the help of Jana Lee’s cookies! I mean really… how adorable is the brushstroke print on them?  I think the cookie definitely wore it better than I did!  A special thank you to Jana Lee’s for the delicious cookies, Zest for the pure pressed juice that kept us all hydrated, Posy Florals for the STUNNING floral arrangements, & Inkwell & Co. for your amazing calligraphy skills!

It was such a fun time catching up with my fellow bloggers and I am so fortunate to be part of an amazing blogging community in Columbus. Thank you to all of the gorgeous ladies that took time to come out! I have included some photos from the event below as well as some highlights from the J.Crew collection available in store & online.

Like Jackie O, the Jackie Cardigan is timeless. This herringbone is no exception. It will look adorable with anything!

A crisp, tailored blazer is a must for any chic woman. J.Crew definitely has all of the above when it comes to the Regent Blazer.
