Simple yet chic outfits are what it's all about for me right now.
Shown here: the Ruffle Top in Clip Dot ($68 + up to 30% off), 
the Denim Skirt with Raw Hem ($70 + up to 30% off), 
the Signet Bag in Italian Leather ($128 + up to 30% off)
and the Bandana in Berry Print ($13 + up to 30% off).

This is an exciting time of year for building our Spring closets, as the promotions are flowing and they just keep getting better! Joining its sister store Madewell's terrific current promo (which ends tonight!), J.Crew is now offering up to 30% off your order too! This outfit above is a great example of the updated classic chic styles I love J. Crew for -- that bag is so buttery soft in real life and I love the tassel, and the clothing has a familiar yet eminently wearable feel to it.

Designwise J.Crew seems to be finding its footing again, with lots of cute items that mix classic, feminine, trendy and preppy chic together effortlessly. Inside, some of my current favorites from my wishlist and shopping cart...

Mini Skirt in Fringey Lace ($98 + up to 30% off),
Floral Chandelier Earrings ($65 + up to 30% off),
Women's Tretorn® Canvas T56 Sneakers ($68 -- excluded from promo).
I normally hate clothing with words on it, but this sweatshirt is quite cute! And not crazy expensive!

Ruffle-Sleeve Top ($40 + up to 30% off), Tie-Back Denim Skirt ($78 + up to 30% off).
Simple, refined, wearable, chic...want!

Striped Boatneck T-Shirt (now $30 + up to 30% off), Seersucker Ball Skirt ($188 -- excluded from promo).
One of those J.Crew combinations that I'd never think to try on my own, but love.

Off-the-Shoulder Striped Sweater ($90 + up to 30% off), 
Chain-Link Necklace with Silk Tie ($68 + up to 30% off), Ruffle Skirt in Chambray ($98 + up to 30% off),
Knotted Slides in Silk Faille ($138 + up to 30% off).
Work to play chic!

Sheath Dress in Fringy Lace ($138 + up to 30% off), Magnolia Link Necklace ($78 + up to 30% off),
Leopard-Print Leather Heels (now $155 + up to 30% off).
Perfect for parties of all kinds, including the one I just made up to wear this look.

Like Madewell, J.Crew is doing more than just individual pieces well -- they're doing entire outfits well, with pieces that mix and match easily without much thought to it. With J.Crew, I usually add things to my wishlist first and then wait two weeks to see what the price does. For anything you don't want to wait on this promo is a good deal!

Here are some other things on my wishlist right now:
1 | The Gingham Ruffle-Hem Dress ($128 + up to 30% off) would be perfect for the annual Polo Classic I attend, with this hat. But I also envision it in beach towns, and to dressier weekend get-togethers.
2 | Twice now I've asked ladies on the street where they got the Camille Ballet Flats in Satin ($148 + up to 30% off), so I think it's time to take the plunge myself. They don't look like much online in my opinion but in real life they catch the sun like metallic shoes, with a beautiful sheen.
3 | The J.Crew for the Wildlife Conservation Society Whale T-shirt ($45) is excluded from the promo, but it's for a good cause and is a beautiful top! I also like the elephant top.
4 | The Squared Lucite Link Necklace (now $60 + up to 30% off) is one of my favorite pieces -- it can be beachy but it's also great with work dresses. Want evidence? See it on me here.
5 | I also love the new blue version of the Jewel Box Necklace ($88 + up to 30% off), which I own in the champagne color.
6 | The Forget-Me-Not Crystal Necklace ($88 + up to 30% off) is another necklace that can be fancy, but you could also pop it on with a sweatshirt and jeans for a casual chic look!
7 | The One-Shoulder Ruffle Top in Eyelet ($98 + up to 30% off) is a beautiful top that I'd wear a ton once it warms up. Love the idea of pairing the white version with jeans and red earrings.
8 | The Popover Shirt in Irish Linen ($80 + up to 30% off) is that perfect shirt that comes in the most beautiful colors. Adore.
9 | All things berry have my attention right now.
10 | If you don't already own them, I'm so in love with my Colette Suede D'Orsay Pumps ($248 + up to 30% off)! They are all-day comfy and have such a beautiful powder blue color -- later this week we'll talk how to keep suede shoes looking their best. I have a few OOTDs in the editing process that I'm very excited to share; in the meantime you can see them on me in various outfits including: 1 | 2 Other colors of the pump are on sale plus another 30% off here.
