J Crew March 2012 {catalog inspiration}

Anyone else think J Crew did a great job with March?

Over the past few seasons I'll admit I'd been losing interest in J Crew. Much of the clothing and styling just wasn't appealing to me. That's all over with this month's catalog. I've found several pieces that would work effortlessly into my Spring wardrobe... and also some inspiration for styles and color combinations for similar pieces that could be found at lots of shops. Here are some looks I particularly like:

So that up-an-hour-earlier is not the most fun for the kids... dark and rainy this morning. I think I'll be drinking a lot of tea today and looking forward to a Poirot or some film noir and a fire tonight.

Happy Monday!



  1. Love your picks. Great colors! OT, but I was wondering about the fit of your LK Bennetts. Are they TTS? They are now available at Nordstrom and I can't get them out of my mind. Thanks!

    1. Thanks! Pretty TTS... I usually wear an 8 1/2 and have two pairs of Maddox in 39 (suede and patent). One pair of LKBs I have ran small and I took a 40 so I think their styles can vary. The good thing about Nordstrom is free shipping and easy exchanges :)

  2. Love the first and last, great inspiration.

  3. Yes, I "see you" in those pictures!

    We have the same weather around here. Last Sunday I "had" to bake shortbread-cookies. To accompany the tea. Ever since I bought my new pot I am so into tea-drinking. I even prefer tea over coffee in the morning!

  4. JC has some fine colours in that catalog!

    It's snowing here this morning! Can you believe it?

  5. Gayle - Thanks for stopping by!
    Paula - It is definitely tea weather. Glad you are enjoying your new pot! Shortbread is one of my favorites - perfect with tea.
    Rose - Definitely crazy weather around these parts lately!

  6. I know what you mean about J. Crew, I either love everything in the catalog or I'm not feeling any of it. I bought one of the colorblocked striped t-shirts in January (to wear in summer), and I'm glad I did, I think they sold out of them. Now I'm waiting for the No. 2 pencil skirt in Casablanca blue to go on sale! And I tried on the linen tipped blazer in natural with black grosgrain ribbon, it's adorable. Please let it go on sale! XO, Jill

  7. the march catalog totally killed it, i want to recreate nearly every look there!

  8. Loved the many great Spring sweaters!

  9. jill815 - nice picks! I'm loving the April catalog now too.
    LyddieGal & designchic - agreed :)
