How’s it going? I’m great – particularly because I have just a little over a week of work until I get to go home for Christmas! That will be a whole week and a half out of the office! Whoop, whoop! But before then, I have my holiday office party, Brian’s holiday party down in Indy, a few last gifts to knock out and a ton of prep work since I’ll be out of office for so long. Whew! A lot to get done but I’m so excited to spend a little more time at home.
So a few weeks back, you all probably saw that J. Crew did 40% off EVERYTHING for Black Friday (for the first time ever). It was kind of a big deal – and everyone who knows me knows how much I love J. Crew…so it was only a matter of time before the texts started pouring in asking my what I was going to get during this crazy good sale. You all know me too well. As I’ve been on a bit of a shopping freeze for the better part of the last five months, I finally gave in and got the Stadium Cloth Cocoon Coat I’ve been doting on for the past few years. It was definitely a splurge, but probably the best deal I’d ever be able to get. Honestly, I have no regrets. This baby is just as beautiful in person – the softest wool, the most intricate details, and the best fit. I could not love it more.
In my few weeks of having it, it’s quickly become my go-to coat. This winter, you’ll find me wearing lots of high rise skinny jeans, oversized scarves, chic shoes and a classic satchel to accent this classic cocoon.
Check back this Friday for my gift guide for gifts under $25!
Until next time –
