The J. Crew Collection for Summer 2013 has debuted today! Or perhaps earlier, and I wasn’t on top of it. Nonetheless, above I have curated some of my favorite pieces. They are the following:
1. Thomas Mason’s shirtdress
Yes, I am trés obsessed with the LWD, and want to build a collection of them. This one is timeless - pair a sweater on top and you can wear it year round (who subscribes to the “don’t wear white after Labor Day” rule anymore?).
2. Collection Cafe Capri in Medallion
This is a throwback to my native land of Pakistan - the silk and embroidery are very reminiscent of saris and chemises I saw when I visited in Fall 2011.
3. Collection Capri in Embellished Floral
I love the hue of the pants along with the floral embroidery. These capris are what I imagine a proper Southern girl would wear as she runs around town for errands. I also like the look as it’s paired with a chambray button down versus a sweatshirt, although I can appreciate the dichotomy of the textures and casual vs. formal aesthetic.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to unearth my J. Crew pieces for an ensemble today as I am muy inspired.
