I’m in love with this blouse from Club Monaco-it’s simple, but I think the pretty scalloped embroidery really gives it a unique detail. I love that the scallops on the top are mirrored in the scallops of the J. Crew flats-one of my favorite pairs. Also obsessed with this J. Crew tote. Black + navy + gold hardware = yes. This bag holds a ton and I think it looks more expensive than it was (not that it was cheap or anything). I love most everything J. Crew does (obviously), and I think their bags are one of their strong points. They’re really well-designed, in that there’s always enough added detail to make them interesting, but not so much hardware and crap thrown on that they become busy/tacky. I have another tote that I purchased there a while back, a cognac colored satchel with some cool pockets on the front, and it’s held up well over many years. Here’s hoping this one does the same!
PS-I’m not crazy, we took these before the deep freeze came to town…though to be honest it was still quite cold!
