J Crew Sale Madness

The past two weeks, J Crew had an amazing sale on their final sale items. I am talking 50% off the sale price or 40% the sale price!!! I got a lot of things that really will help me elevate my style at school and conferences.

 First, I had my eye on the Downtown Field Jacket in either navy or moss green. I have a tan trench and while that is perfect for dresses and windy days, I wanted a shorter jacket to wear with jeans or with rain boots. The Field Jacket is waxed cotton and hip length. I snagged it for $70 which is way cheaper than the original price.

Remember when I blogged about the perfect skirt for me in February? I picked it up for $20 and grabbed another in navy. I really liked the material, the length is perfect for going out or brunch and the fit is perfection. It makes you look so slim and elegant. I am sure I will get a lot of use out of it this year!

Lastly, I picked up two pairs of crepe pleated shorts (navy and purple) for nights out and daytime meetings. I always tend to overdress and these shorts are perfect for that. They were also only $18 after all the discounts. I also really like the 5 inch length because I have long legs and 5 inches is the perfect amount of shorts for me. Not too motherly but not too much leg for the world to see.

I still have my eye on a pair of toothpick cords and a silk dress but I will wait until the price is right. I think that is the secret to snagging the J Crew items that you want. Everything is on sale when it comes in - almost 40% off and then on mega sale in the opposite season you would wear it. That's why I am picking up clothes for the fall and late summer for mega awesome prices.
