9 CAN’T-MISS BUYS FROM J.CREW’S BIG SALE
Oh, J.Crew. I have a longstanding love affair with the brand (who doesn’t?) but, even so, I’ll be the first to admit that it’s always been a hit or miss kind of place. Sometimes it’s everything I want and then other time, I can’t find a single thing I’m dying to have. The current status, you ask? Hit, hit, hit. My cart is full and – best news ever! – it’s all on major sale. Just enter the code SUMMER at check out to see that $ total get cut in half. Run. Don’t walk.
Below, a peek at 9 items currently in my cart.
This one-piece is the latest and greatest addition to my swimsuit selection. I bought it in light blue and loved it so much that I now own it in black and this happy hot pink color. It’s super flattering and feels really great on the body.
If ever there was a time to mix in some color to my sea of black and tortoise sunglasses, it’s summer. The season cals for happy and bright and these pink-lady sunnies totally fit the bill. (P.S. They come in red, too!)
SORRENTO STRAPPY SANDALS
Truth be told, I always feel a little bored when it comes to J.Crew’s shoe selection. They have great basics but that’s about it. But! ‘Tis not the case here. These strappy sandals (available in a handful of colors!) are gorgeous. They’re elegant and wearable. Treat yourself to two pairs!
LINEN WIDE-LEG SEASIDE PANTS
As the temperatures heat up, I’m always looking for an alternative to blue jeans. These linen pants check the box. They’re lightweight (perfect for those triple-digit days) but, as is the case with so many linen pants, they’re not so light that they’re see-through. This olive green color is the ultimate go-with-everything shade.
If I had to pick one single item from J.Crew to take on a desert island, it would be the brand’s cashmere tees. They’re the actual best. They’re super light (the ultimate summer sweater!) and a perfect substitute for those nights when you want to wear a t-shirt but need to amp it up just a bit. This bubblegum pink shade is a new addition to the lineup and might just be my favorite shade yet.
I love a flatform. They give you the height you want without sacrificing comfort. The key is finding one that doesn’t look straight out of 1995. Say hello to these espadrilles. I love the thick strap (flattering on a foot!), and I can already tell they’re going to be one of my most-worn sandals this summer.
WIDE-RIB BELTED ONE-PIECE
Belts are the ultimate swim accessory. I think they make any swimsuit – no matter the silhouette – ten times more flattering. That is especially true with a v-neck like this one. The belt gives it just a little more dimension adds shape where I need it. Bonus: I am obsessed with the color.
Leave it to J.Crew to take a single piece of cotton voile and turn it into my favorite summer cover-up. I love that it comes in colors that match the brand’s swimsuits. It makes for the ultimate tonal look by the pool.
CANVAS ESPADRILLE FLATS
I went from rarely buying a pair of J.Crew shoes to owning three in under two weeks. The latest addition is this pair of espadrilles. In the happiest shade of sunshine, these espadrilles are my sub-in for my usual ballet flats, which feel just a little too heavy this time of year. The price is so good that I might just go back for a second pair.
