Five on Friday {J.Crew Factory Arrivals}

Hey y'all,

So we are officially one week away from my 24th birthday! So next week's posts will center around birthday celebrations and shenanigans but in the mean time, it is currently freezing here in North Carolina. I mean, when it is 11 degrees outside but feels like 2, the walk from the parking deck to the office is brutal. Hence why I am currently loving on these beautiful summer like clothes from the J.Crew Factory new arrivals section. Here are my Top 5 picks:

I think this tank would look great tucked into a pencil skirt with a light cardigan, perfect work a day at work. I think I am just drawn to the pattern since it looks like a less defined and muted version of Lilly Pulitzer's First Impression print.

This cardigan comes in the navy and mint colors separately but I love the two combined on this piece. I think this would be the perfect comfy cardigan for running around town doing some errands or throwing on some jeans and riding boots for a casual Friday at the office.

I love J.Crew Chino Shorts and for some reason I am being drawn to this pattern. I keep thinking these with a chambray top and jacks would be the perfect summer uniform. The pattern also comes in the Factory Printed Tissue Scarf, if you are afraid the bottoms are too much.

How perfect would this be as a beach bag? I think this would also be a great everyday bag in the summer since it is made of cotton canvas with a full zipper on top. Here's to dreaming of a week at the beach.

I couldn't make a top 5 and forget the dress that everyone raved about last year! I even tried on the dress in yellow, back when I went to the Factory in Lynchburg over the summer but we all know that yellow is not meant for the pale Irish skinned girl writing this blog. I am currently lusting after the navy and bright poppy colors. I mean for under $70 we all know this dress will be gone soon!

And I am also loving this necklace and all of the critter  & polka dot socks.

Are you dreaming about summer? Any J.Crew Factory items you are coveting?


  1. Lol, I picked the navy dress too,! Hope you have a lovely weekend. :)

  2. I am OBSESSED with that colorblock sweater! And the tote is perfect for work in the summer :)

    Also, I'm totally regretting not buying that scallop dress when it was in J. Crew earlier this year, but I certainly like the factory price better!!

  3. Great finds. I love that top top. Haha. That's a great way to incorporate "radiant orchid" into winter and spring wardrobes!


  4. I love love the scalloped dress! The price is so reasonable when you compare it to the one from the retail store!! Happy early Birthday, love. Let the birthday week commence!!

  5. I am OBSESSED with that scalloped dress! I actually saw someone wearing it this past weekend and forgot to ask where they got it but now I'm ordering it right away :-)

  6. I just got WAY too excited seeing the Factory has the scalloped dress. I'm also loving those shorts- this post just fueled my J. Crew addiction in a bad way!

  7. I love that scalloped dress and the peplum top! I've been buying sundresses online like crazy lately...I am so desperate for springtime and warmer weather!

  8. I bought that navy scalloped dress over the weekend because there was no way I was going to miss out on it again! I'm tempted to go back for the coral too!



Thanks for the sweet note!
