What I Packed for 2 Days in Northern California

Plus the outfits I put together!

I made a quick stop into my local J.Crew to try on a few things. The lighting is honestly terrible, but I did make notes about the fit of everything so at the very least I hope it’ll help make online ordering if you had your eye on any of these items. Get 30% off full priced items (and 50% off certain select items) with the code FALLTIME.

Both of these items are 50% off right now. This sweater looks navy blue in this light, but it’s black and it’s SO comfy and beautiful. I sized down so it would fit like a top, and I love it paired with these cute little kick flare jeans! I tried on my usual size in the jeans, but felt like a size down might have been a better option. Just something to consider!

This cashmere mockneck is not only beautiful and so soft. I went up a size because I find that J.Crew cashmere sweaters run smaller than I prefer. Note that the ivory color is a smidge sheer, so I’d recommend choosing undergarments that match your skin tone. Wearing the same kick-flare jeans as above. Sadly the promo code isn’t valid on this item, but it’s certainly a timeless piece that will stand the test of time and keep you cozy year after year.

This coat!! Currently 30% off. The rest of the outfit is the same as the previous outfit so I’ll only talk about the coat here. It’s BEAUTIFUL and honestly a timeless coat you can have forever. I personally have a coat from J.Crew 10 years ago that I still wear every winter. This one is a boiled wool material and it does run big, so I suggest sizing down. Available in several colors.

Both the jeans and top are 50% off. Wearing my usual size in the sweater (I have the loden green color on), but I’d say if you’re unsure, size up for more coziness. I have a size down in the jeans and they have a lot of stretch. To be completely honest, I don’t know that they’re a total winner for me personally. I do know people who are obsessed with this specific style from J.Crew, though, so it just goes to show that jeans can be a very personal thing.

Last but not least, a big cozy teddy coat! 30% off with the sale code. Wearing one size down and honestly sweating with it on—it’s so warm! Like wrapping yourself in a big, soft blanket. The color I’m wearing is called “Nantucket Fog” and it’s like a gray/beige kind of color. Also really love the “Warm Brandy” one.
