New Arrival Picks @ Favorite Retailers:


Outfit Post - Plaid Scarf

  • Scarf, similar one with 50% off right now at J.Crew Factory,  a wool version on sale at Macy's, and another one is on sale at Ralph Lauren.
  • Sweater, similar sweaters at J.Crew and GAP, both are on sale for Black Friday.
  • Jeans, take your pick from these favorites at J.Crew, Gap, and Old Navy, they're on sale too.

I think the best part of this outfit is the colorful J.Crew wool scarf. It's older but the colors are classic so it's easy to find similar scarves at a number of retailers right now.

 Boot is not on my sweater, it's hovering. :) Takes a steady hand.

I usually wear this scarf from late November until the end of January because it gives a festive vibe to outfits.  This time I tied the ends together like an infinity scarf.


J.Crew New Arrival Favorites, and Elephant Parade Tee Styling Ideas

  1. Foil stripe tee 
  2. Mohair fuzzy stripe sweater - Always love a stripe, but is this new or did I just miss it before?
  3. Metallic shearling scuffs 
  4. Metallic latte mug - This may be another one from the previous gets confusing.
  5. Folded metal bracelet - J. Crew has some very nice bling this holiday season. 
  6. Elephant parade tee - Cute! Bought it. 
  7. Sliced cuff - Hate the name, but it does add a modern touch to traditional sweater shapes, without adding snags.
  8. Mixed cable sweater 
  9. Nora disco ball ballet flats 
  10. Lightweight puffer jacket - Love this color with the neutrals.
  11. Harley of Scotland Nor'easterly sweater 
  12. Dulci velvet kitten heel loafers 
  13. Harley of Scotland Fair Isle sweater 
Let's take a plaid break. I was drawn to these neutral colors because they're easy to mix and layer with casual and work separates.

I think that J.Crew did a fairly small roll-out this week, but I still found several things that I really liked, including the cute Elephant parade tee that's on its way to me. 

If you're trying not to overspend your holiday budget and still crave something new and shiney to wear, then the Elephant parade tee may be one to try. Everyone loves elephants, and the neutral colors layer with winter cardigans and jackets now and spring outfits later on.

These are some of the colors and prints in my closet that I want to try with it, along with navy of course. 

Is there something on your must have list from the latest new arrivals at J.Crew? 

Last but not least, I want to wish a very Happy Thanksgiving to all the ladies who read my blog from the US!
