A Touch of Spring: Recent Reviews

This weekend’s weather was certainly indicative that spring has arrived. I’ve started converting my wardrobe over from winter layers into spring-friendly pieces, starting with lightweight sweaters. This tie sweater from J.Crew is very light, and a great tunic length for covering up the top of the thigh area. Also worth noting, the tie on the sides of this sweater allow for adjustable width around the bottom (really helpful for those of us with a booty).

I also tried out the J.Crew toothpick jean in white. I like the bright white color of these jeans, but more than that I really like how soft and comfortable they are. The white denim that I’m used to is from Madewell, and it’s a much more structured jean than this pair. I could eat an entire pizza in these, and not feel uncomfortable (the real test!).

The rest of this spring look is linked below, and you’ll see that my love for J.Crew continues in full force.

      Thank you! I can’t take credit for them. A few friends at work had them, and I fell in love. They’ve been great for fall and spring wear though. The color is perfect.

  • With these below freezing temps, the heat in our apartment can’t keep up. That meant we all had to do some serious snuggling last night. Josie didn’t seem to mind one bit though 🤱🏻 She is a magnet to snuggles.

What are you guys going to stay warm during the polar vortex? I can’t wear enough layers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking of, I linked this down parka on my Poshmark. After our little one arrived, it became even more important to make room for only the essentials—which meant having only one parka (against my will). Great color and quality, per usual, from @eddiebauer for anyone in need! I linked my whole closet in my bio and on the blog to see more!
