What to Buy at the JCrew 40% off Fall Sale

By now you probably know I am a big fan of JCrew. But what you may not know is I rarely or ever pay full price for what I buy. They have great sales including this week’s 40% off Fall. The Sale ends at Midnight on October 11th. If you have your eye on something, grab it now and you can always return it. Their Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale was the same. Enter the code GOBIG at checkout to get the 40% discount.

I would use this Sale to stock up on sweaters, layering pieces, and jackets. Below are my favorites and different pieces I own and love.

I bought this sweater in two colors over the weekend. I love the button detail down the side.

I bought the Sophie sweater last year and I have lived in it ever since. I got it in tan and it was the best investment piece.


I have a similar one to this polka dot top from Sézane that I wear all the time. It looks great with a pencil skirt or jeans and boots for date night.

P.S. These camisoles are $25 and 40% off and I bought a few earlier this year. They are so soft and great as layering pieces.

Coats and Jackets

If you are only going to pick one piece to buy, I would put my money in a coat for Fall. I have had my eye on the Teddy Coat for months and it is finally on SALE.

If anyone is looking for a Christmas present for me this year, I take a size Small ;)

These over the knee suede boots are beautiful! If I didn’t already have a pair of over the knee boots, these would be mine.

5 Ways to Transition your Home for Fall

The change of Seasons is happening if we like it or not. I have learned to embrace the hibernation of the colder months over the past few years and I have actually learned to love it. Netflix, warm blankets and not feeling guilty about staying in on a Friday night. Here are 5 easy ways to transition your home from Summer to Fall.

Swap out Pillows/Throws on Couch

The weather is transitioning from warm to cold and you are most likely spending more time on your couch watching Netflix. Add a soft comfy throw to keep warm. I love these from West Elm and Bonus, they are on SALE! I have two of these and their pillows are great two. This is a great opportunity to swap out color schemes at home too if you want.



Add your favorite fall scented candle to your coffee table or nightstand

I personally love the Fig candle from Diptyque. There are a lot of great scents that create the Fall vibe that doesn’t include Pumpkin Spice. (not a fan here) If you want a lower price point candle, I think Nest is a great option. Their Bamboo is my favorite and they have great holiday options when it gets closer to December.

La Prouveresse candle from Diptyque smells like cypress trees, fig, and crunchy leaves. It doesn’t get more Fall than that.

Clean out your closet

If you didn’t wear it this Summer, chances are you won’t wear it next Summer. If you pack your Summer clothes away, this is a perfect time to sort through them and donate what you didn’t wear. I did this over Labor Day weekend and I have empty hangers and space in my closet for new clothes.

Restock your Tea Cabinet

As soon as the cold weather starts, I reach for my tea. I have two that I drink on repeat that I pick up from Paris. Both are available in the US now. The Vanilla Rooibos from Palais des Thés is perfect for when I am feeling under the weather or can’t sleep. I drink hibiscus tea as much as possible and Kusmi Tea has a great one. There are a lot of health benefits to hibiscus tea so it doesn’t hurt. Both are caffeine free so I can drink them in the afternoon into the evening.

Add an extra blanket to your bed

I added a waffle blanket from Boll and Branch to my bed two years ago and I never looked back. I love the texture of the blanket and it is so soft. The extra layer keeps me warm during the cold winter nights in Chicago.
