|J.Crew Liberty paisley print|
I’m having a bit of a J.Crew moment. I just happened to stop in over the weekend 😉 to check out the new arrivals when the print on the shirt above caught my attention. I’m a tough customer when it comes to prints; I rarely veer outside my solid or stripe comfort zone, but a good paisley will often garner a second look. (For some interesting history on the origin of paisley, check out this post from Bourbon & Pearls.) This one has everything I love: harmonious (but not dull) Autumn tones, an interesting pattern. Now that I’ve expanded my sartorial horizons to include button front shirts, it was worth a try-on. Instant infatuation. The fabric is very light and soft (so a rumple here and there isn’t a deal-breaker) and this shirt can be worn on its own now during our warm season, and will layer beautifully under sweaters when the weather cools off.
Speaking of sweaters…
|Tippi colorblock cardigan|
The Tippi cardigans are made from a soft, lightweight merino wool. I thought this color-block pattern would just cut me in half visually but it’s surprisingly flattering. The solid Tippi’s are tempting too, and great transitional season layers.
|Tippi solid cardigan|
This “burgundy heather” color would look great with the blouse, n’est-ce pas?
If you’re in the market for boots, they had some good looking options:
|Harper suede boots|
|Ryder short buckle boots|
