I'm giddy with excitement! (I know, as usual, right?) But, I just can't stand all of these super-cute collabs J.Crew has got going on for spring. The one pictured above is a "fab collab" (as I like to call it) with Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer - otherwise dubbed as OGJM for J.Crew. These brilliantly bright and wonderfully chic pieces of loveliness are in stores now (although I believe a limited amount of stores...heading to mine this weekend!). The rope designs are just my cup of tea, darlings, and they're affordable! The necklaces retail for $150 and the bracelets $60 (although I would have to stack them, so...ugh. fashion girl problems...). Really and truly those necklaces are to die...I'm loving the bold color. Especially for those of you too afraid to wear too much of the trendy colors this spring. Mmmm, I'm looking at you.
The other collab is with espadrille maker Soludos (Rachel Bilson is a huge fan!). True, I'm a heels, girl, but summers down south can be brutal (who am I kidding, spring is already brutal). There's life beyond flip-flops, folks. I love kicking around in something so comfy and cute as these.
Plus, Soludos’ exclusive-to-J.Crew version features a chambray lining and a one-of-kind cotton and linen body, washed for a slightly sunfaded look (you know, the "I'm not trying that hard to look this chic" look?). The women’s solid and striped styles retail for just $34.50-$36 and are now available in J.Crew stores and at JCrew.com. I can't wait to scoop up a pair of my own...I'm going for the green!
