Life Lately

{Vintage store finds: handcreme, vintage postcards, delicate jewelry and a tiny vintage perfume bottle}

In the spirit of Emily and Alicia, I’m starting a weekly segment that captures my favorite moments of the week. This week marked the end of my vacation and the return to normal life, and so now more than ever I need reminders of the nice things in life and motivation to stay positive. Happy weekend!

Showcase: Joe Fresh at JCP


All, Joe Fresh at JCP

The Canadian chain Joe Fresh has been a long time obsession of mine. Sadly, though, their only stores were located in New York City – until now. A few weeks ago, I saw a commercial for JCP announcing that they now carry Joe Fresh as a brand and I nearly screamed. That’s right, it’s not a limited edition collection – it’s here to stay. Now everyone can access their clean, modern silhouettes, bold colors and patterns, and perfect silk basics at super-affordable, H&M-esq prices at their local jcpenney. I stopped by last weekend and picked up the first of many things I hope to purchase from Joe Fresh. Here are some of my favorites from the current spring collection.

Lilac & Stripes

Something about colored denim is so refreshing. It’s easy to wear and can switch up the entire look of an outfit in an instant. I had never really considered lilac denim until I tried on a pair a while back. I was reminded of this post on Cupcakes & Cashmere and decided a pair could add a twist to some of my most-worn basics, like this striped top.lilac and stripes 1lilac and stripes 3lilac and stripes 4

Inspired: H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection

See the whole collection here.

I’m seriously in love with everything about the new H&M Conscious Exclusive collection. Some of the prices are a bit out of my reach, but I can’t help but fawn over the exquisitely tailored pieces. Besides the clothes, I love the whole lookbook – the modeling, styling, setting, props – it’s just so terribly chic and classic and modern, all at the same time.
