Thanks to everyone who chimed in about what goodies I should pick up at J. Crew! I'm planning on going this week after exams with a well-thought-out list of items and alternates. I'll post the haul this weekend!

I finally got these fripping socks I posted about way back when. That is how long it took for the Crew by me to restock these socks. Goodness! I'm still channeling some boy/girl looks and trying to wear this blazer as much as I can before it gets too warm to wear it.

That and I'm trying to ward off this lemming I have for the Mulberry Alexa bag. I took inventory of my handbag collection and am pulling out my schoolbag-esque and tan bags into rotation to see if there is a space or a need for another bag addition. And of course to get the full effect, I had to dress the part!

In the spirit of giving some proper care and attention to my neglected fashion accessories, I unearthed this scarf underneath a bunch of summer weight pieces in a dresser drawer. I was sooo happy to pick up this Virginia Johnson lovely. I felt like the Barney's Co-op catalog portrayed the models sporting these as so effortlessly chic and I got to secretly join their ranks.

I think I mentioned this previously on the blog, but the striped top was a Black Friday impulse purchase to cross off the famed St. James striped top from my wish list. It only sort of succeeded, and now that J. Crew carries St. James, I might just end up squandering my gift card money on one of those.

Sidenote: Now that I look at this photo again, I have all of the components to recreate this look!!

I even  have the seashell colored skirt and spotted calf-hair flats to go with the whole thing head to toe. Hmm maybe this can be my good luck outfit for my upcoming exams this week!


  1. A camel-print scarf?! :D That is so cute!! :D And I can't wait to see how you recreate that outfit, it's pretty!

  2. Adorable! I love how you make casual dressy.

  5. so daring! I love it. I've been wanting to do the ankle sock thing, too, but just never have. Next year... :)


  6. I LOVE the scarf and the teal socks!!! It's such a great way to incorporate a little bit of color.

    I can't wait to see your J.Crew inspired outfit!

  7. Wowww what a cute outfit! Total style inspiration to me. I am in love with the scarf, if only I hadn't dropped $300 at Anthro in a week, maybe I could have one myself... *weep weep*
