Welcome to another end to your work week.  It was a cold, wet week in Virginia and we are looking at snow for the weekend so I’m not sure it’s getting better!  For this Friday Favorites I’m all over the map, from J.Crew striped yumminess to a new designer at Nordstrom.  One preppy the other edgy … both good!  #ReallyGood  I also have an upcoming giveaway announcement and the weekend sales round-up. (neither which you want to miss).  If you are on the hunt for something or stymied on how to style a piece drop me a comment or a DM.  #HappyToHelp

Friday Favorites

This week’s obsession is brought to you by J.Crew.  You know I love stripes (I have a closet full of them).  You know I love separates that look like dresses.  This is the magical combination of both in a great mix of colors.  Now I just need some warmer weather to be able to wear it!!  #SpringPerfection

I purchased this over the weekend when I made my own little J.Crew sale with a discount coupon I had left over from the Holidays.  It is every bit the beauty it appears.  The skirt is fully lined (how big a bonus is that)!!  It is now also 40% off with the current J.Crew sale – you will need code YESPLEASE.

ANINE BING @ Nordstrom

Did you see the news that Anine Bing is coming to Nordstrom.  I guess technically she is already there.  #LateToTheParty.  Her style is “wearable edge” – and I love it!!  #TotallyMadeThatUP Her pieces aren’t always for the office … I do have a red suit from her that always makes me feel POWERFUL that I wore this week and look at the blazer below (I ordered it).  They are pieces for making statements!!  In order for me to wear this blazer I am also going to need a cami underneath (lacy or plain) but it will still be gorgeous.  Just a little less “eye” catching.  And while I could NEVER wear them to work … her leather leggings are also on my list.  Wowza!!  #DateNightWin
