you know the drill

Know how all the stores lay out their fall items in August and it's still a million degrees outside? In Charleston, you can fry an egg on the sidewalk and then take two steps into J. Crew, only to be greeted with the newest line of fall outerwear. It's kind of ridiculous, but that's just the name of the game! So here's my point... Although buying fall items may seem absurd, you kind of have to start a little stockpile at the back of your closet or else all the good stuff will be sold out by the time it's actually time to wear it!

By the way, to all of you Northerners... I will envy you next month when you're wearing boots and sweaters. We go to the Clemson home football games and I personally am dreading the first few games in September/October because I know I'll be completely melted to the stadium seats by halftime. 

Today I'm sharing some new favorites I have from J. Crew Factory. I just noticed the new arrivals online and a couple things—like this amazing red coat—are already backordered. So shop quick before the rest of the world gets it! Everything is up to 50% off right now.

Now if somebody could please get me some cool weather, leggings, this top, and some boots (or these!) ...then I'll be happy!


  1. I really love the puffer jacket and OMG, I just ordered two of those sweaters. :-)

  3. Such cute items! I love the beige stripes jumper. I move from England to LA next month so I'm going to be missing out majorly on a winter wardrobe (which is about 80% of my closet)


  4. I am loving all things J Crew Factory right now! I am excited for fall living in DC, but as a former Arkansan... I know that football season dread! It is only fun once it cools down enough!
