Outfit Post - Color Inspired

Excursion quilted down vest (mine is older) from J.Crew
Meow print scarves in similar colors here, here, here, and here 
Long merino cardigan from J.Crew, also in red here
Jeans, similar at Factory, J.CrewOld Navy
Boots, similar style here at J.Crew, or go luxe here
Tote, similar herehere, here, and here

I almost forgot how versatile this ivory Excursion quilted down vest is until I revisited the olive/red/blue colors that I wore earlier this week. My vest is the older version from J.Crew with the slanted pockets. For this outfit I wore it over a long cardigan, perfect-fit tee combination and added a warm printed scarf.

My outfit colors this week were inspired by the color circle I made using three of the looks featured in J.Crew's December Style Guide. The colors work well for our late fall to winter outfit transition.

J.Crew Factory New Arrival Picks

Yesterday we had a peek at some of the new arrivals at J.Crew Factory, below are some of my favorites from this roll-out.

Today there were a few more new items added to the website, including the Paris sweatshirt and Jacquard top, above.  I really like both of these and will probably get the Paris top since I'm still enjoying the sweatshirt trend. :)  

Will you be adding any of these new items to your wishlist or closet?

What I like best about J.Crew Fair Isle knits are the unexpected colors and patterns, especially when the colors are borrowed from previous seasons. An example, the Cashmere Fair Isle graphic sweater featured in the December Style Guide. I borrowed most of the colors from it for my outfit above. :)
This pricey Fair Isle is a fearless way to combine many colors into one outfit. I like all the colors on this sweater and have most of them as separates. The sweater was styled with a navy vest, jeans, and a bright blue scarf in this month's Style Guide.

Outfit Post - J.Crew Elephant Parade Tee

Elephant Parade tee, from J.Crew
Cashmere v-neck cardi, similar at J.Crew
 J.Crew pants I like with the top here, here, here, or here, and of course denim
Shoes, similar here at J.Crew, or these at Macy's, or these at Lord&Taylor
Bracelet, I like this, this, and this one from J.Crew

My Elephant Parade tee arrived this week and it's just as cute as I hoped it would be! Another version, the Gold elephant tee, is almost sold-out online. As more ladies discover this version, it will probably sell quickly too.

I posted a few styling colors from my closet in this recent post. I'm wearing it with the brown/navy wool check trousers above. From the website image, I thought most of the elephants were silver, but they're actually white, and three are bronze, gold, and rose gold. Recommend layering it under a v-neck cardigan so the colors are all visible. I took the same size as I wear in the linen grahic t-shirts from J.Crew.
