FashionVeronica ArrietaComment

Woah...woah...woah!! J.Crew is now sold at Nordstrom! How cool is that! Y'all know Nordstrom is one of my favorite stores because of the brands they carry, price points, and amazing return policy - so this is a pretty big deal that J.Crew is now part of the Nordstrom family. Here are some of my favorite pieces from J.Crew at Nordstrom. 

How happy are you about this? What are some of your favorite pieces?

East Coast vs. West Coast Spring Trends: Gingham + Yellow

This week I'm so exited to collaborate with Dani, the creator and beautiful woman behind Drafts and Crafts. Dani is a lifestyle blogger in Northern Virginia and has a super cute Esty shop that you should totally check out! Blogging has connected me to so many amazing people - and crazy enough Dani and I actually went to high school together in South Florida and have reconnected through our blogs. We're both now married and enjoy fashion, crafts and baking so this collaboration made total sense. After all,  it's always nice to see a familiar face, even when your thousands of miles away! 

Gingham is the hot topic today, which is why we put our heads together and decided to show how the east coast and west coast wear gingham print with a pop of yellow. You'll notice that the east coast is more preppy and polished while the west coast is more relaxed and edgy. I'm really digging gingham for spring, the checked cotton fabric was popular in the '50s and '60s by icons like Audrey Hepburn and has finally made a comeback. Gingham is easy to wear and can be feminine, flirty, and worn so many different ways: loose-fitting dress, full skirt, cropped top, and matching separates to name a few.

Be sure to check (pun intended) out how Dani styled our gingham print with a pop of yellow on the east coast, and then how I went about it!  How do would you gingham?

Happy hump day and thanks for all the support with Four Threads so far! I've been on the prowl for a textured sweater for a few months now and stumbled into Gap while I was waiting for my iPhone to get fixed at Apple (but that's a hole other story!) and found this perfect moss-stich sweater. I immediately loved the color, different textures and how it can be worn both dressy and casual. I went for a more laid back look for church and brunch last Sunday.
