David and I had a little coffee date recently. He chose a chocolate milk, and I chose an americano with cream. When we were in line, he saw a little girl in front of us order a chocolate muffin, so he promptly decided that he wanted a “black” muffin as well. We walked over to the table, and he immediately dug into that delicious muffin.
It was fun to dress up a bit and have this special little date with him. I’ve been a huge J.Crew Factory fan for years, and had so much fun picking out coordinating outfits to wear over this upcoming holiday season. To be honest, anytime I have an event coming up, J.Crew Factory is the first place I check. I live about an hour from a physical store, but I have just as much fun shopping online.
I normally steer clear of colors, but I couldn’t stop thinking about this red tuxedo blouse when I saw it online. The pleats down the front added a little visual interested to the blouse, without making it bulky or busy. And as soon as I found the skirt, I knew I had to have that outfit. I’m always looking for clothes that work with my lifestyle, so stiff pencil skirts without stretch don’t appeal to me at all. This skirt, however, has an elastic waist and is cut short enough to be a very flattering length, but also is easy to wear when I am chasing after my kids.
I also think this skirt would look really great with a charcoal grey turtleneck tucked into it. In fact, I may have to recreate that very outfit for Thanksgiving day!
I often see other moms talking about how fun it is to match their daughters, but I have to argue that it’s equally as fun to coordinate with your sons! And now David and I have some great options to wear for holiday parties and family events. I love that the clothes look great, and are at an awesome price point, but are still really comfortable!
J.Crew Factory just released their gift guide, and it is certainly worth browsing–whether for gifts or for yourself! And in case you haven’t gotten one of their puffer vests, you should know that I have 2 and they are some of the most worn items in my closet in the fall and winter!
And right now they are running a promo of 50% off everything and free shipping on orders over $50! Happy shopping!
The clothes on David and I were gifted from J.Crew Factory, a store I’ve shopped at for years. This post was sponsored by J.Crew Factory.
