J. CREW NEW FALL & WINTER COLLECTION

Every year I have the same ritual to get ready for fall and winter. During these early days of autumn (I love this time of year!) I buy new candles, stock up on fire wood, create a seasonal table with my son and inspect my wardrobe to see if I need some new clothes for the upcoming season. J. Crew has the perfect collection to stock up on some new fall/winter clothing. I like to mix basic items (e.g. jeans, a denim jacket or simple black pants) with some more edgy pieces such a faux fur coat and metallic ankle boots. Above and below you can see my favorite items from J. Crew’s current collection. Above: faux fur leopard coat

1. faux fur leopard coat | 2. heart lake t-shirt | 3. classic denim jacket | 4. Gola sneakers | 5. Cabana sunglasses | 6. leopard calf hair skirt | 7. metallic gold ankle boots | 8. saddle bag | 9. coat in Italian boiled wool | 10. toothpick jean | 11. high rise jean | 12. merino wool sweater
