Your Spring Wardrobe Makeover, an Event with J.Crew

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of J.Crew, so when our Walnut Street location contacted me to host an event, I was thrilled to do so.

In part, I love J.Crew for its ability to create timeless pieces, while incorporating the trends that we all love so much (i.e. this adorable ruffle sleeve tee). J.Crew has always remained true to its nautical, preppy vibe, but continues to do so in a way that feels current. I turn to them season after season, year after year, because I know that–no matter what I purchase–it will remain in style and withstand many wears.

During the spring makeover event, I wanted to highlight how well J.Crew pieces work with capsule wardrobes. To do so, I set up the above sample capsule wardrobe, pulling different pieces from within the store, and sticking within my specified color palette. For anyone wanting to downsize or detox, I highly recommended experimenting with a capsule wardrobe. You will be amazed at how light you feel, and how easy it is to get dressed in an outfit you love every, single morning. Guests of the event each received a postcard reminder of the capsule wardrobe quick facts to consider as they shopped

There are so many pieces from J.Crew’s spring collection that I adore. The feminine touches easily fit into the overall style I aim for in my wardrobe. Classic pieces, like a pair of simple white shorts, with a special detail–like the micro-ruffles on these high-waisted shorts, and the lace statement on an otherwise uninteresting sweatshirt.

J.Crew on Walnut Street did a wonderful job making Wellesley & King shoppers feel at home. With fruit-infused juice, and fresh baked goodies, guests enjoyed a private shopping experience, and were able to choose and try on items in the store without the hustle and bustle of weekend crowds. I had a truly lovely morning spending time with everyone, and am so thankful to have been part of such a wonderful event.

Thank you so, so much to everyone who came out for the event; I had a great time with all of you!
