J. Crew Ruffle Striped Shirt + Pink Winnies!

I have a confession to make. I saw this striped ruffle shirt in the J. Crew catalog about 3 months ago, and I just stared longingly at it in my online shopping cart until I finally bit the bullet and purchased it. To be fair, I even tried to buy it in person and try it on at the Naperville J. Crew, but they had already sold out. Mike was starting to think I was a weirdo because I kept talking about this shirt. But, isn't it awesome!!!??? I'm ashamed/proud to admit that I wore it 2 times within 4 days of having it. (Insert monkey emoji covering its eyes.)
These Winnie pants are my go-to cropped work pant. I have black, navy, plum and this punchy pink color called raspberry (above). They're currently $39! I've gotten them as inexpensively as $29! They have no pockets, but they're super flattering with a looser top. They run just a little small. For reference, these are a 6. You want them tighter, though, especially for your flowier tops! Court and I are suckers for the Winnies-- she totally got me started on them, and now I'm addicted. Shall I sent my J. Crew Factory bill to Pittsburgh, girl? hahaha jk. 

I forgot to mention that I also saw this top in the J. Crew catalog, ripped it out, and put it on the kitchen table to stare at it some more. bahaha #pathetic

This top! I am so in love. Size down if you're in between sizes, so you don't look too much like a football player. I hope I don't in these pics. LOL. This is a size 4 for reference. For whatever reason, though, it was excluded from all promos. Lame, J. Crew. But it was worth every penny! 

Annalisa at Beautiful You Salon cut and styled my hair before we took these photos on Saturday. She is the absolute best! She has cut my hair since 2012, and she also did my wedding up-do. Call her ASAP for your next hair appointment-- she rocks! 

If you've followed my blog in the past, you know I am way obsessed with these BCBGeneration Valentino dupes. IMO, these are better than the Vals because they are SPARKLY! And comfortable! And no where near $1,000. But, if you can afford $1,000 shoes, #treatyoself. Otherwise, be like me, and wear $49 ones! 

I love stacking Kate Spade bangles like this, this or this with my Michael Kors watch.

I also love this ruffle top for a less in-your-face ruffle. I have this one in green, and I got so many compliments on it at work. It runs big, though. I have a 4, and I wish I had gone down to a 2.

The pave J. Crew link bracelet is one of my favorites. It looks great with everything.
My glitter earrings: Kate Spade

This purse is old Kate Spade Outlet, but I'm obsessed with the navy and scallops. I love a cross body bag.
Here, here and here are some high-quality navy cross body bags. They are certainly investment pieces. Think of them in a PPW (price per wear) type scenario. Then, you'll feel less guilty. haha!

More pink pants: here from J. Crew, here from Loft and here from Ann Taylor.
