If you’ve been reading this blog since 2012, you may or may not remember my J.Crew phase. I blame my college best friend, Claire, for this (hi, Claire!). She was a VPS at J.Crew and I couldn’t help myself when we went shopping there…or when I was shopping her closet (lol). Everyone knew me as the girl who basically only wore J.Crew (how embarrassing is that?!). I exclusively wore pixie pants, puffer vests, and gingham shirts. No seriously, take a look at this Instagram post.

When I moved back to New York after college, I knew I needed to start stepping outside of the world of J.Crew. This means I actually just stopped shopping there.

I was recently browsing the site, and found SO many pieces I need want in my closet. I picked up this skirt, these flats, and this sweater yesterday and I’m SO excited. I love that ever since I’ve snapped out of the J.Crew ad I was living in, I’ve been finding ways to incorporate the elements of preppy dressing into my newfound personal style. There are so many pieces that I want to add to my closet, and I think I will very soon.

Check out some of my other picks below!

What J.Crew pieces are you loving this season? Did you go through an all J.Crew phase like I did?

    Oh yes! I was J.Crew everything my junior and senior year of college and haven’t really gone back since with the exception of a few of their beautiful sequin pieces!

    I’ve always LOVED J.Crew but just didn’t have the money for it. I do have a black and white gingham button down that’s my favorite! Probably the only item I paid full price for lol!

      I feel like their pieces were SO expensive back in the day. Now I’ve noticed price drops (and I’m loving it)!

    I had a similar relationship with J.Crew and haven’t picked up too many pieces there over the last few years. But this season that all changed…I’m loving everything!!

    J. Crew has some amazing pieces that are always in style! I love to pair some of my preppier J. Crew pieces with more casual items in my closet, like sneakers and sweatshirts!

    I’m pretty sure I’m still in a J. Crew phase. It started, hmmm, maybe about 8 years ago? Geezzzz I’m old! I’m sad they only have a few pairs of maternity pants and nothing else maternity. Huge letdown. 4 more months of no J. Crew (ok, so just shoes…)
