The week before our big Europe trip I made a big splurge at J.Crew. I figured I ABSOLUTELY HAD TO HAVE leather-trimmed leggings and the merino sweater with leather pockets in Europe. Had to. Sadly, my highly anticipated package came in the mail the day before I left and, much to my dismay, I hated both. The leggings fit terribly on me and the material of the sweater was nothing like I was expecting. So disappointing. I made it a point to return both items before I left so they wouldn’t be outstanding on the CC, and ended up leaving with an entirely different outfit. Oops.
I grabbed this jacket, which ended up being my saving grace on the trip, the grey Pixies (have been on my wish list forever) and this adorable sweatshirt, mostly because it says “cheers” on the front (I mean, really). I ended up qualifying for the 25% off your purchase, so I still got money back after my initial splurge, and I’m absolutely in love with each piece – and the look as a whole. Thank God I work within lunch-hour distance of a J.Crew. And in case you were needing a little pre-holiday splurge yourself, they’re offering 25% off your $100 purchase this week in stores and online. You’re welcome.
