If you haven’t noticed by now, I like J Crew. Like, a lot. It has the most perfect clothes for both work and play. Because I spend over 45 hours a week in pencil skirts, button-downs, and cardigans (53 if you count the hours I sit on the couch post-work, still fully dressed for the office), I like them to be cute, comfortable, and corporate-friendly.
The good thing about J Crew is that many of their styles are classic silhouettes and I don’t feel ashamed wearing those items years later. J Crew Spring ’09 – this post is dedicated to you! Thanks for getting me through this terrible Tuesday.
J Crew Crocodile Cocktail Cardigan
J Crew Eyelet Pencil Skirt
(*disclaimer: I don’t have this skirt but can’t find the knubby-cotton/tweed-type navy pencil skirt I’m wearing online. I bought it last year at the J Crew San Francisco and it is my favorite summer work skirt)
J Crew Perfect-Fit Cascade Tee
I hope this gives you an idea of what I wore to work today. I must confess that the tee I wore under the cardigan is actually not from 2009, but Spring 2010. I couldn’t resist; it looked great under the cardigan and provided for the perfect amount of ruffle underneath. (Some ruffles are just too much–think colonial judge.)
