I have super exciting news to share! On my birthday, September 20, I had the amazing opportunity to participate in the J. Crew #meetmycrew Holiday campaign!!! Honestly, it was without question one of the most amazing moments of my life. As you know, I LOVEEE J. Crew and the social initiatives the brand embraces. I am incredibly honored and humbled to be part of this fantastic campaign. I am eternally grateful to the brand that I LOVE SO much. The entire experience was amazing. It was SO fun to see how things work behind-the-scenes. And, let me tell you, it takes a LOT of work to produce what this amazing brand produces. There are some incredibly talented individuals who put in TONS of work to create and execute amazing content.
Honestly, I had the time of my life working on this campaign. I love how J. Crew brings people together around shared interests. It is amazing how the brand connects people. And, the work of connecting people is one of the MANY reasons why I love the brand so much.
Here are two pictures featuring “my crew”!:
Here is the video featuring “my crew”!:
The women in my crew are wearing the new J. Crew Signature Tartan Plaid. The print is offered in a variety of pieces including a ruffle wrap skirt, an excursion vest, a gorgeous dress, a wide belt, tights, pajamas, and scarves. I seriously did not want to take these pieces off when were shooting for the campaign. I wanted to take everything home with me! And, I could not wait until this beautiful print arrived at my home this week! This print is SO vibrant and fun. I love the streaks of pink running throughout the print. I had to have most of the pieces in this print because it is so unique. I plan to wear this print throughout the year! You can shop the pieces below (please note that these are affiliate links):
This print is SO adorable and fun! And, J. Crew also launched a few other new pieces yesterday that I am loving, too! I am constantly reaching for fun, cozy sweaters and graphic t-shirts, so I was happy to see more gorgeous sweaters and destination tees released yesterday! Here are a few of my favorite new pieces:
I have been loving the Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen collection that is exclusively at Nordstrom. The collection is SO adorable and the pieces are incredibly flattering, fun, and versatile. I have found SO many goodies and I love how they pair so well with my favorite J. Crew and Madewell wardrobe favorites. This look is one of my faves. This tulle skirt is seriously perfection. It is not too bulky and the layers are so feminine and dainty. I love how this skirt is styled pairing different variations of pink together. It is a classic, bold, and eye-catching look that will never go out of style. And, may we please talk about this amazing shirt?!?! Bows + pearls = absolute perfection. This blouse is stunning and it pairs SO well with other great pieces in this Halogen collection and already in my wardrobe.

I love everything about this look. The crystal embellished shoes and the pearl earrings add the perfect finishing touches to this feminine and girly look. Pink is one of my favorite colors, so I am always happy to wear pink on pink on pink!!! I took a size Large in the skirt, a size 14 in the jacket, and a size XL in the blouse. The pieces in the collection have been fitting pretty true to size; however, the website description notes that this jacket fits small and I totally agree with that. I would not have been able to wear a size 12. The sizing information the Nordstrom has been incredibly helpful. Also, most of the skirts in this collection have elastic waistbands, which means that you can likely size down. Again, I have really been loving how these pieces pair so well with many of my faves already in my wardrobe!
This styling possibilities for this skirt are endless. I wore it with the pink jacket in the images above to church, but the skirt also looks great with a leather jacket or dressed down casually with sneakers and a fun sweater. I would also pair this skirt with pops of green, a fatigue jacket, stripes, or a camo sweater.
Happy Friday! As usual, I am sharing my Friday faves today. I am loving so many fun clothing pieces right now. The festive plaids at J. Crew have me SO ready for the Christmas season. And, I am totally loving the Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen collection. The pieces are SO cute, colorful, and fun! So, here are my Friday faves:
This coat is seriously one of my favorite recent purchases. The plaid pattern is divine and the fit is SO spot on and flattering. I LOVE pairing navy with pink! The color combination is so striking and cute. The coat fits TTS and is incredibly versatile. I cannot wait to pair this beauty with the fun pink tulle skirt from this collection! And, this gorgeous pink belt finishes the look perfectly!

Madewell released a few new arrivals today and I am all about the fun sweaters and stripes that were included in this new launch! I LOVE a fun heart sweater and this beauty is absolutely adorable!

And, of course, I am loving all of the festive plaid that J. Crew just released last week! All of these holiday pieces have really helped to lift my spirits and to put me in a festive mood! The J. Crew Stewart Tartan Plaid pattern is one of my all time faves. The Blackwatch plaid pattern is equally adorable and fun! I will take all of the fair isle, too! A fair isle sweater is a must-have piece in my wardrobe. The pattern just pops so well! The matching skirt in this print is SO gorgeous and I cannot wait to get this beauty in my hands!!!
Here are my cyber Monday picks from J. Crew:
Also, Talbots has a few super cute pieces that are incredible deals today! I love tartan plaid and this fun cape is stunning. I took my normal size Large. There are some super cute festive blazers, too! I have been really impressed with the last few collections at Talbots and I have found several pieces that I love and that mix so well with my favorite J. Crew and Madewell pieces. Here are a few of my favorite cyber Monday Talbots picks:

We spent Thanksgiving in New York City this year and I could not be more grateful for a week away. Going home is SO difficult for me these days. Life without my parents is incredibly painful. I needed to be in a different geographic space that would keep me on the move. And, let me tell you, NYC will definitely keep you moving, literally. We ate our way through the city! I am looking forward to creating a fun travel guide soon that includes all of the fun restaurants we tried! I was also able to do a photo shoot with one of my faves, Allie Provost. Do yourself a favor and follow her on Instagram and be sure to sign up for her blog posts. Allie is super talented and her style is AMAZING. Her eye is fantastic; she captures angles that I would never consider! I also had the opportunity to host a fun styling event at the Tice’s Corner J. Crew in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey. I had a blast meeting blog readers and Instagram followers and mingling with shoppers throughout the day. It was SO much fun!
I will be sharing more from my photo shoot in the next few weeks, but in the meantime, here is one of my favorite shots, ever. Toby is seriously my favorite person on the planet; he has celebrated every victory with me and he has held my hand through every obstacle in life. He is without question my biggest cheerleader and I am incredibly grateful that I get to spend life with him. We are certainly not perfect, but I would not want to do life with anyone but the amazing Toby!
I loved shooting in the West Village in NYC; the scenery is magical and I could imagine living in this gorgeous space!
Just look at the handsome Tobster! I am SO glad that he is mine!
And, here is a look at a future OOTD. I cannot wait to share the entire look because it is SO fun. I love the monochromatic look. Pink on pink on pink will always be one of my favorite looks. And, this blouse is super feminine and dainty. Pearls and bows are always a winning combo!:
