This Forest Green Jumpsuit Does Everything Right for Summer

Point Sur Linen Wrap Jumpsuit in Forest Green

Intoxicating nature-inspired color? Check. Easygoing, slouchy vibe? Check. Breezy linen construction? Check. It’s everything that’s good and right about summer dressing wrapped into one perfect purchase.

This new dark green jumpsuit from J.Crew’s LA-inspired Point Sur label is made from lightweight, machine-washable linen. I’m always a bit skeptical of linen that claims to be machine-washable. It’s like fabric Shrinky Dinks. I’d probably size up. But, given the slouchy vibe of this jumpsuit, I don’t think a slightly larger fit would look bad at all.

Wedge sandals would add a slightly dressier edge that would go to brunch quite nicely. Flat sandals would create more of a laid-back west coast look. Either way, you’re in an insta-outfit situation – no need to match separates or think too hard about looking good. And that’s what summer is all about.

Coach Shoes on Sale: 5 Pair Marked 50% Off

Saturday, June 16, 2018 • Permalink • 

The Coach Summer Sale is in full swing, with a whopping 1,000+ products all marked 50% off, while supplies last. Yes, of course, there are a ton of handbags included as part of the sale. But, Coach’s ultra-comfortable shoes are some of the best deals on the site.

The sale-priced Coach shoes range from classic to crazy, with a lot of stops in between. These five options are my favorites.

The Coach driving loafer might just be their most classic shoe option. It’s available in six gorgeous shades, including versatile black and brown, but this pearly pink peony shade is the standout option.

Sale: COS Minimalist Wool Cocoon Jacket 70% Off

COS Cocoon Coat in Black Textured Wool

I discovered something while browsing the fabulous COS Summer Sale today: COS has become my favorite clothing store. It’s not just their fanatical devotion to a modern minimalist aesthetic, it’s that they also manage to produce incredibly well-made clothes for a reasonable price. I could see myself wearing at least 90% of their sale section, which made it awfully hard to pick a single item to feature.

This 100% wool cocoon coat has a classically minimalist silhouette that won’t be going out of style any time soon. It features high-end details like contrast lining, overlapping seams, and a double-ended metal zip. Sure, it’s a bit too warm most places to wear this right now. But, it will be a wardrobe staple as soon as fall rolls around. Talk about value.

Bonus: that gorgeous bottle green draped cardigan I featured in top shopping finds a few weeks ago is also marked down!

Sale: Botkier Trigger Leather Satchel Under $200

Botkier Trigger Handbag

I know what you are thinking. Two white handbags featured in two weeks, really? How many white leather handbags does a person need? I get it. But the Botkier Trigger bag is my all-time favorite, so I couldn’t resist sharing this wonderful sale find.

This creamy off-white satchel features all the zips, pockets, and pulls that are the hallmarks of the original Botkier design. My first Trigger was a black leather “Trigger Clyde” purchased from the now-shuttered South Coast Plaza outpost of So Cal fashion institution Ron Herman. I was instantly in love. Over the years I’ve acquired three more Triggers, but not one in white!

This convertible Trigger satchel comes with both 6.5” drop top handles and a removable 15” drop shoulder strap. It’s good to have options. The top zips closed to keep all your goods packed up tight, while the exterior zip pockets let you put the necessities where you can get to them quickly. The quirky geometric pattern lining is icing on the cake.
