Summer Bucket List | Progress Report

With this week being the last full week of summer, I figured it was time for a Summer Bucket List progress report. Well...really more like a final report.

J.Crew Factory Faves + $100 J.Crew Giveaway!

Happy Labor Day, loves! Yay for a short work/school week! I've teamed up with eleven lovely bloggers to bring you a $100 J.Crew gift card giveaway. But before we get there, I wanted to share a few of my current factory faves for fall. I've shared on occasion (or two) that I'm not a huge fan of J.Crew, primarily because of the cost of their clothes. Don't get me wrong...the clothes are beautiful...just WAY outside of my budget. But the factory store prices...I can wrap… Read more
