I gotta admit – I live and breathe J.Crew. Partly because I work for the company, and partly because I’ve loved them for years now. I’m in this weird position because when new product comes out, I not only feel the need to try pieces so that I can do my job as a merchandiser better, but also to help get the word out about the incredible finds to YOU! J.Crew new arrivals always get me excited for a lot of reasons, but these pieces in particular make me SO excited to get dressed. I wanted to share a few new J.Crew Spring pieces here today!
J.Crew Spring New Arrivals I’m Loving
Carolyn Slip Dress In Crepe
This dress is unreal. And funny enough, most people have been buying it for special occasions – the sales associate told me a lot of people are buying for courthouse weddings. INTO THAT. It is definitely a special dress in such a beautiful drapey crepe fabrication. But in typical Dana fashion, I have to make everything casual (duh). Throwing a denim jacket on took this dress from special occasion to every day in an instant. I love that the length hits me in the perfect spot where I’m able to wear with flats. I can’t wait to have this in my closet for years to come!
Special Occasion Taffeta Dress
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I have absolutely NO NEED for this dress. I don’t have any upcoming events or weddings…yet I felt like I really needed to have this dress in my closet when the invites arrive;) The first thing that drew me to this dress was the print. I think it’s a perfect for multiple seasons – spring, summer, and fall weddings! The next was the silhouette. I feel like we’re definitely in the age of slip dresses, I own a couple and love them myself! I found myself missing that super feminine and classic shape. I just LOVE this a-line silhouette with a sweetheart neckline. The floaty skirt is perfect for me because I genuinely enjoy being out on the dance floor all night.
Sequin Lady Jacket
When I saw this sequin lady jacket, I immediately thought of the classic nostalgia about J.Crew. I feel like this is a piece that in 10-20 years from now, I’ll really enjoy having it in my wardrobe. Of course, I’m going to find ways to style it now, but I also really want it as an archive piece. When I’m (hopefully) still working for the brand years from now, I want to be able to say “oh yeah, I have that piece!!!” when we’re referencing product from years prior. Plus it’s just SO fun!!!
Tie Waist Mini Dress
When it comes to dresses, this is really MY. KIND. OF. DRESS. I’m always looking for something that is super easy to throw on and go. I look for dresses that I know I won’t be fussing with throughout the day (especially if I’m wearing it to work). I loved this dress mainly for that aspect, but there are other details I LOVE: The fabric is this great linen/Cupro blend, the gold button details a la lady jackets, and the fully functioning zipper.
Cotton Boucle Sweater Lady Jacket
When you put a sweater in a lady jacket silhouette, I’m going to buy it. This one was at the top of my MUST HAVES LIST. I really try to support the company I’m working for by buying pieces from our latest drops. I also bought it in yellow because this yarn takes color SO WELL. It’s actually really versatile – you can wear it open or closed, with jeans or dresses, and dress it up or down. This is without a doubt going to be a staple in my closet for YEARS to come.
