Crew Love, a new purse and family picture outfitting

It's no secret I love me some J Crew.  I don't swoon over every piece they offer but I'm definitely a fan of their classics.  Their cardigans, pencil skirts and jewelry are what I'm drawn to the most.  

The proof:



Dot Flouncette Blouse-J Crew/ No 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Wool-J Crew/ Traversa Cardigan-J Crew/ Vince Camuto Elanie Pump/ Necklace-J Crew Factory/ Crystal Blossom Drop Earrings-J Crew Factory/Flower Bud Ring-J Crew

I honestly didn't realize I was (almost) all fully decked out in offerings from the Crew until I looked in the mirror.  Kind of funny. 

Over the weekend I decided to hit up the outlets to finish up our family picture outfit shopping.  Hubby still needed something to wear.  Thankfully the Banana Republic Outlet came to the rescue and they had the perfect sweater for him.  Across from Banana is the Coach outlet so I popped in to see what they had. I went in a few weeks ago looking for a fall purse, but left empty-handed. I wasn't too impressed with their offerings.  I figured I'd probably have the same experience this time around, but they must have just gotten a new shipment in because there were a lot of new items I hadn't noticed before.  I walked around for a bit and then my eyes met with this:



Hello gorgeous!  The color was what got my attention.  I love it!  It's such a fun pop!  While I had planned on getting a more neutral bag (and I still may if I find a great deal) I knew I couldn't pass this bag up.  It would be coming home with me. Sometimes you just have to go for a little color.  It was a rocking deal too...just about 1/3 as much as the retail price.  Yes, please!  

As for our family pictures that are this Saturday, here's what I finally decided on:

Fall 2012 Family Pictures


The weather forecast isn't looking too good for Saturday with 50% chance of rain so I'm hoping that changes in a hurry!  We'll see.  Have you taken family pictures yet this year?  We take ours every fall, much to my family's dismay.  I always use them for our Christmas cards, which is the next project...finding a Christmas card! Plus I just like having a picture taken every year to see the changes in everyone...it's fun to look back and see when my husband started going a little gray, or when I no longer looked like a teenager.  =) 

I'm off to get my day started.  #3 and I are headed to our weekly date at the trampoline gym (open gym for preschoolers) and then I'm going to brave the nearest Wal Mart for Halloween candy for tonight's Trunk-or-Treat.  Woo hoo! =)

Have a great day!

  7. I love J Crew's pencil skirts. I have been pleasantly surprised at some of J Crew's offerings as of late. I really like your outfit. I hope your family pictures don't get rained out. Ours did the first time and we were luckily able to take them the next day.

  8. I have family pictures scheduled as well this Friday, I have been stressed for weeks about it. Weather is supposed to be in the 70's here in Sacramento. Coordinating outfits for 2 girls ages (4yr) and (8yr) has been tough. They are very pickey. We are going with greys and blacks. Love your color combo for your family pic's. Looking forward to seeing a picture.
