Now, onto fall fashion…. a mix of favorite retailers, including J.Crew. :)

Jackets are one of the best thing about fall- I have a little bit of a jacket obsession I inherited from my Mom.  Here are six beauties I’m loving to add to my collection:


1. // 2. // 3. // 4.  (also this one)// 5. // 6.

Sweaters and blaxers are my other fall favorites.  I’m sticking to mostly neutrals with some colored cashmere boyfriend sweaters mostly.  As for blazers, you need a navy, a black and something tweed-ish!


1. // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9.

Streamlined, black, grey, white and able to dress up or down, dresses are your best friend for day to night dressing.  Add a leather jacket or military coat to funk them up.


1. // 2. // 3. // 4. (or this one) / 5. // 6. // 7.// 8.

Camo, leopard, coated denim and prints are still all HUGE.  As are classic denim shapes and grey washes!


1. // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6.

You simply HAVE to have leather this fall.  I still LOVE my super-investment leather pants and plan on adding a couple more leather jackets to my collection (my fave of all time is a faux and was $28 at Forever 21, so not everything has to be pricey!)  A leather shift dress is my ultimate for this season.

Oh and BOOTS. Lots of boots. :)

  1. Silk georgette skirt. Both the navy and dark oak. Because even though I may live in South Dakota, I WAS BORN to be Sophia Loren on holiday with my skirt wisping gently in the breeze. I WAS BORN to march the streets of New York wearing the confidence of a chunky sweater and boss boots offset by the delicacy of a feminine silk skirt.

    And even though I may have dreams beyond where I live, I know I WAS BORN, too, to glide effortlessly into a restaurant in Sioux Falls wearing this skirt, a simple fitted top and poppin’ necklace, and my vintage YSL slingbacks, even though no one around here knows what the heck YSL stands for. Thank you J. Crew and Elements of Style for letting me share my dreams with you.

  2. Awesome giveaway! I LOVE the leather shorts, mirrored oxfords, and the oversize merino pocket sweater to wear with camo pants. Thanks Erin!

  3. J.Crew just screams cozy, fall items to me. I want to get my hands on some new buttery leather boots.

  4. Here in Maine, we have a fairly new J.Crew at the mall. But I love to go to FREEPORT, walk outside on a nice fall day, grab a hotdog and cider at the cart, and visit the J.Crew Factory Store! I would treat myself to the Warmspun Charlie Sweater Dress to wear with my tall boots. And, I’d treat my daughter to the Belted Field Jacket which she could wear with the new Olive Skinny Jeans she bought there yesterday – for her first day of high school. Can’t beat it.
    Love the new Bateau mug, by the way! It’s awesome with the little gold trim. Nicely done!

  5. I love J.Crew’s fall collection! I would love a new pair of brown boots or leather pants to complete my fall wardrobe! Thanks for the giveaway, Erin!

  6. Love the fall collection. I can’t stop looking at the leopard duster coat! Thanks for getting me in the fall (shopping) spirit!

  7. The real question is…what WOULDN’T I buy from J.Crew?! My Mom and I LOVE J.Crew and I would split the gift card with her so we could both walk away with something special. Maybe a pencil skirt (for her) and a printed Tippi sweater (for me)?

  8. I love #4 under dresses (black long sleeved). I’m moving to NYC and starting a new job in September so trying to glamorize my wardrobe!

  9. I love jcrew and will be doing some serious fall shopping as I transition from a wfh job back to the office. I especially love the jcrew jackets I saw at the natick store yesterday

  10. I really need to invest in some tried and true staples to carry my through fall and beyond: Boy shirt in Beaded Chambray, the Vintage Denim Jacket and Darby Suede Loafers in Fresh Strawberry for a pop of color!

  11. I am living in Seattle right now and have an infinite love for jackets, even though I’m originally from LA. So, I would rush out and buy a jacket for sure! Thanks! xoxo

  12. The fall clothes at J Crew are beautiful. I can’t wait to add some pieces to my wardrobe. The sweaters and dresses are my favorites.

  13. I’m torn between the quilted tack jacket & the Carolyn jacket. I have a beautiful tweed skirt (London splurge) that the Carolyn jacket would look smashing with…pick me!!!

  14. I would love to buy a new pair of boots! also i adore Jcrew’s minnie pant, so probably a pair of those too :)

  15. Black and white is having such a moment this fall! I would die for the Audrey Hepburn inspired black Minnie pant cropped at the perfect length with the Merino Tippi sweater in white paired with the Biella calf hair tassel loafers in hazelnut leopard. A crisp, fall look with a juxtaposition between classic with the black & white and effortlessly cool with the leopard detail. La dulce vita is right, Jcrew!

  16. I’m hoping for a pair of new flats, the silk georgette skirt and a cozy new Tippi sweater! Fingers crossed, so excited for new fall finds, this year’s season is lovely!

  17. I LOVE. LOVE. LOVE jackets and coats!! My husband thinks I have way too many when I clearly don’t have nearly enough. Number 1 is absolutely beautiful and I need blue for my statement color this upcoming season. Number 6 actually made my jaw drop. Loving it!!
