Summer Chic in the City

Now you're all in for a real treat today - Daniella from Dress, Design and Decor is here to share one of her very favourite looks for this summer. Daniella and I share a passion for all things J. Crew so when I heard she was going to do a 'room to outfit' post from Jenna Lyon's amazing home, I couldn't wait to see it. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!
Thanks so much Daniella!

When Shar asked me to do a little fashion guest post, I was so excited! But since i'm just as obsessed with decor, as I am fashion, I couldn't help but mix the two.

I have to admit though, I have a problem... and it goes by the name of J.Crew. I don't know about you, but it seems the minute Jenna Lyons showed up, J.Crew suddenly became fabulous! So when Domino featured Jenna and her lovely home, I was even more impressed by her creative talent. I always come back to her livingroom for inspiration over and over again... the zebra print, the sheepskin, the black, white, & yellow, chalkboard walls, and that amazing chandelier... gorgeous! Turning this room into an outfit is definitely a must.









I like pieces that are comfortable but chic, so I love that J.Crew has a constant supply of the basics with that little something extra. Their tissue tees are so soft and comfortable, and paired with the classic toothpick jean you're already looking chic! I love the bright yellow couch in Jenna's home, and the endless summer cardigan is the perfect way to add some colour, while staying warm in the overly air-conditioned office! Add a little sparkle with J.Crew's gorgeous gems, throw on some simple T-strap sandals, and you're good to go! Oh, but don't forget your bag... every girl needs a purse this fabulous!

I agree - I would wear pretty much anything and everything she comes up with! I'm a little obsessed with J Crew myself...

I HAVE this purse!!! I couldn't help but splurge on it this season. It's chic enough to go with every outfit, casual and dressy. And the mix of black and cream handle is nice spin!

Amanda said...

Oh this is wonderful - I love the yellow! This outfit matches the room perfectly!

Sandi - I'm jealous that you have the bag. It really is fabulous, I'm sure you use it all the time!
Ms Less - I couldn't agree more! Every time their catalogue arrives, I fall in love with each page. I could easily get my entire wardrobe there!
DOC and Amanda - the sweater was probably my favourite piece too! I need to get something yellow!

I am loving J.Crew myself these days. My family now lives outside Philly and they have an awesome outlet where I have done some serious damage this summer. I think this maybe become a biannual addiction.

Oh lucky Jess - we had an outlet quite close to us when we lived in Colorado, now I live in Canada where there is no J. Crew - it's almost reason enough to move back! :)
