j.crew blogger event

last week i was invited to a fall preview of the newly remodeled j.crew store on the country club plaza hosted by michelle of Second Street East.  it was an event for local bloggers to take a sneak peek at the new trends for fall and snatch up some wardrobe staples for the cooler months ahead.  and seriously, with this heat, anything that makes fall weather seem like more of a possibility is alright by me.

now let's get a few things straight here people.  i love fall.  i love fashion.  i love fall fashion.  and i love me some j.crew.  i get unreasonably excited about clothing - especially when we can begin discussing outfits that pair well with my other fall time obsession: boots.

but we can get into that therapy session at another time...

some of the trends that are carrying over into the fall that i will be sporting include polka dots, neon & chambray.  in addition, there were some great examples of looks i love on other people, but can't seem to pull off for myself including: brightly colored cords & peplum tops.  i can however get on board with all the fancy jewels that accompanied several of the looks on display.

here is a quick look at what j.crew has in store for the cooler months plus some of the lovely kc bloggers taking part in the fun:

and of course no event is complete without delicious food so local favorite gram & dun was on hand to ensure no fashionista was shopping on an empty stomach.

if you haven't been to gram & dun you should check them out.  they are the relatively new kids on the block occupying the most primo patio property on the plaza.  (the old baja 600 for all you old schoolers).  shout out to one of our go-to faves for local dining! and thanks to j.crew for welcoming local bloggers to this private event!

are you a j.crew fan?  what fall trends are you most excited about this year?  and since we are talking about cooler weather, where is your go-to place for the best patio dining?
