I don’t shop at J.Crew often, but my search for quality basics (and a glass of wine) led me to their website during the after-Christmas sale.

Extra 40% off sale prices? Fill up the cart! Fill up the cart! Do we need it? Don’t think about it. Fill up the cart! 

Please tell me you watch Girl Code.

Anywhoozle, these kinds of shopping sprees are typically followed by a good dose of buyers remorse, but everything I ordered from the Crew has been on heavy rotation. I think I’m really getting the hang of this edited wardrobe business!

What I wore for a busy, chilly Saturday! It got me through a morning at the flower shop, a family reunion, an outdoor water ski show, and a birthday party in total comfort.

sweatshirt chic

Here are 8 reasons we all need a good basic sweatshirt or two in our closet this winter. In high school, I had a hand-me-down Navy sweater from my cousin who served, and it was one of my favorite things in my closet. I don’t know what happened to it — Mom, do you have it? — but I wore that sweatshirt all the time with jeans and cut-offs.

I love how these girls paired their sweatshirts with colorful skinnies, cute skirts, and fancy [faux] furs!

Now let’s all run to the Wal-Marts and stock up on Hanes sweatshirts. Because seriously, they may be the best basic since sliced bread.

Sweatshirt up! {Said in a Barney Stinson voice, of course.}

I could happily live out the rest of my days in giant sweaters and good leggings. By “good leggings,” I mean high quality ones made of substantial fabric for grown ladies; not the flimsy show-every-bit-of-your-business leg wear found in the juniors department. I know it’s tempting, but just, no.

I found these INC stretch leggings at Macy’s just before Thanksgiving — because, hello, comfy glutton pants — and forked over the retail price because they’re that awesome.  Now they’re on sale, so you can scoop them up for almost half of what I paid and pair them up with your favorite boots and chunky knits this winter. And I can get a backup pair (or two).
