It’s almost that time of year. Preppy girls everywhere will be in their autumn uniforms: riding boots, crimson sweaters, and blanket scarves while carrying a grande skinny Pumpkin Spiced Latte. So where does one find all this autumnal fare? J.Crew. I know, I know. Hear me out.
While J.Crew has been slacking a little bit lately, they’ve gone back to the basics for fall, making them my first stop for back-to-school shopping. Technically, I’m getting my Master’s, so that’s still a thing. Both regular and Factory have some really great promos going on right now to try to boost sales, and I’m loving the color palette. $138 for a cashmere sweater from J.Crew? Yes, please. Take an extra 30% off of that? I’ll even bring the sale associate a PSL.
I don’t know why, but I have always associated Brooks Brothers with fall. Perhaps it has something to do with the all the wool jackets, cashmere sweaters, and tartan prints. Regardless, they are synonymous with fall in my head. So it’s perfect that the Friends and Family sale is ongoing through today. Take 25% off with code FF25. Below, you can see some of my favorites. I couldn’t help myself with the Black Watch Dress. (And the latest Red Fleece collection is to die for!)
Last year, J.Crew Factory introduced its Herringbone Puffer Vest. It was gone in a few days. I’ve seen them on ebay for $300+. Insanity! Didn’t get your hands on one? No worries. In true Factory form, they’re recoiling looks from last year – the beloved puffer, $98, included. Truthfully, this isn’t my style (I think it looks adorable from far away, but, up close, it kinda reminds me of animal print – ick), but I know SO many of you love it, so I thought I’d share 🙂 Plus, I do really like these looks from Southern Curls & Pearls and Kelly in the City.
Today’s Delight of the Day is the Wool Mini Skirt from Gap, $49.95. I love burnt orange for fall, and you can never go wrong with a classic wool mini. I love the idea of it with this shirt from J.Crew Factory in blue! What would you pair with it?
Today’s Delight of the Day is the Linen Blazer from Ralph Lauren, on sale for only $69.99! The end of summer sales have been great this year, and this blazer is no exception. While there is a school of thought that says you shouldn’t wear linen after Labor Day, I think it’s totally okay when it’s still this hot. Pair it with some navy shorts and cute wedges for the perfect end of summer look!
Ralph Lauren is offering 40-70% off their sale items, so definitely check it out if you haven’t already!
Fall is right around the corner, which means chilly weather and rainy days aren’t far behind. Today’s Delight of the Day will help prepare you for those days! While I love the original Hunter boots, these Hunter Cece Boots, $195, are to die for. I love the riding boot shape and think it gives them more of a sophisticated look. If only I could afford this umbrella to go with them!
Today’s Delights of the Day are two former DOTD from before I posted them on my blog (just twitter). However, both of these are on Last Call Sale at Rugby, so now is a great time to make them your own!
