J.Crew Obsession Part 1

Hello, My name is Katrine and I have a J.Crew obsession.
The root of this evil / AMAZINGness is my Aunt in Chicago, she has the most amazing style (seriously!!! shes a stunner!) and (clearly) works at J.Crew.

I am  (like previously stated) in love and smitten with every piece of clothing J.Crew has ever made! Im addicted to their perfect combination of classic and fresh, clean lines and bold color!
Getting all the pieces I want is def not an option though, so below are some of my favs for spring and how you can make your own and get that all American J.Crew look (for less)!



1, 234,

1 + 4. I would get a striped boatneck top from one of the low cost stores like H&M or forever21. Then get some fabric paint and sponge on the color on the neckline down to the first colors stripe. Follow the instructions on the paint, some paint will have to be ironed after drying. It will def not be the amazing j.crew cashmere, but it will def make you ready for spring,

2. How cute is this daisy sweatshirt? Get out your fav sweatshirt and some silk daisies (colorfull or white-ish)  and sow on a few (that way you can remove them when you are sick of the look). The perfect sweater for a field day in the sun.

3. Were you as hooked as me by the tunic trend last summer? Get some fabric paint and paint a nice motif making one that stands out from all the other tunic wearing hotties.

  5. That's a terrific idea with the fabric paint, I've had a neon orange silk screening pot of paint forever, now I know just what to make with it.

    Thanks :-)
