Today is my birthday (yay!), so I thought I’d create a post about my current wishlist and recent purchases. I’ll start with the recent purchases. I really like the fit/colors of the Eden Cardigan, so I grabbed the Heather Dark Grape and Bright Dahlia.
This sweater is super comfy and versatile; it’s currently 30% off!
I’m also loving the Boy Shirt in Stripe Crepe de Chine. Initially, I overlooked this shirt because I have both the Elodie and Blythe blouses. After trying on the navy version of the Boy Shirt in Stripe Crepe de Chine, I couldn’t pass on it. And, I’m a sucker for stripes!
I’m really looking forward to wearing this blouse with a bright pencil skirt such as the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Wool in Vibrant Flame. Finally, I grabbed the following three blouses: the Natasha top in polka-dot and Vivid Poppy, as well as the Silk polka-dot tee. I think the Natasha tops have endless styling possibilities. I intend to wear the polka-dot version of the Natasha top with bright pencil skirts as well.
I just love the feminine details of this top. See it on Rose of the wonderful 1 More Shopping Blog. I LOVE how she pairs it with the No. 2 pencil skirt in Vintage Tweed in blush, which I also own.
My wishlist includes the following items: the Madewell Archive boots seen here:
The wonderful Shopwithm gives these boots two thumbs up here
My final two wishlist items are non-j.crew. I am a sucker for bright colors and classy collars. So, I am all over the Cherie Coat from Kate Spade.
This color is absolutely beautiful!!! And, finally, I have my eyes on the Colorblocked Sweater Skirt in Blue at Anthropologie.
What are you currently eyeing?
I stopped by my B & M today to try on a few of the new arrivals. I just couldn’t give up on the Hacking Jacket in tipped double serge-wool. Boy, oh boy, am I glad that I didn’t. I LOVE the black. And, since I missed out on the Lexington Blazer, I just couldn’t pass on this one.
I really like the product shot on the website. I can think of several outfit combinations.
Here’s a really grainy fitting room pic (excuse the t-shirt!). Sorry for the bad image.
What do you think of this version of the Hacking jacket? What new arrivals are you currently craving?
I love to wear basic sweaters, tees, and cardigans on my non-teaching days. I write and prepare for class in coffee shops, so comfort is a must for me! Here are a few of my favorite basics from J. Crew:
J Crew cardigan (see more v neck cardigans)
I LOVE the colors of the Perfect-Fit Mixed-Tape Cardigan; the Perfect-Fit tanks are super comfy layering pieces too. I’m also crazy about the Vintage Cotton V-neck tee .
I always layer. I have a tough time wearing a woven/button-down shirt without a tank underneath, so the perfect-fit tank is my best (clothing) friend.
What are your favorite basic pieces from J. Crew (or elsewhere!)? Do tell!
P.S. I have a great giveaway planned when I reach 75 followers! Spread the word!
I popped into Ann Taylor Loft today because they’re offering 30% off of everything. I tried on and purchased the Lace Pencil Skirt with Ponte Lining. Let me tell you dear readers, this skirt is perfection!

I will post pics later today! Have you tried this skirt on? Do tell!
