The Fashion Magpie JCrew Pink Ombre Look 2

Latest Look: Ombre.

Guys, I totally ripped off the styling in J. Crew’s latest catalog.  IT IS SO GOOD.  The shades of pink?  Mixed in with khaki?  (P.S. — I have some serious thoughts on khaki.)  I’m not embarrassed to say that I have totally claimed these looks as my own.

I also snagged a pair of these “dandelion” earrings in the white with my order.  I had a helluva time picking a color (they are all SO good!), but white is (duh) super versatile and fresh.

But, other pink pieces I’m loving to continue in this ombre/monochrome lane (you can also shop these and other finds visually via the slider below):

+This bow-sleeved top ($98).

+This eyelet dress ($325).  Or this one ($89)!!!

+This OTS bell-sleeved beauty ($58).

+Statement dress ($298).  This one reminds me of the detailing/cut-outs in dia de los meurtos decorations.

+Cute embellished sandals ($110).  They look a lot like Aquazzuras, but way cheaper!

These and Other Pink Picks for Spring…


P.S. — For an upcoming trip, I am ordering a few sets of these.  I don’t know what it is about being a new mom (actually…maybe I do), but I can’t help but stress about being organized and love the idea of keeping all our items compartmentalized.  I already have a set of these, which I LOVE.  They store SO much and I typically use them for dirty laundry.


  1. Love the baby pink acrylic version of that Cult Gaia bag! I have been debating the wood version ever since finding out that my favorite local boutique has a few in stock, but the outright popularity of that finish is getting me down. I don’t want to buy it if it’s just going to look “so very 2016/2017” in a couple of seasons. Arrrgh!

    In other news, LOVE the Liberty print shorts you linked! #wishlisted

    1. Argh, the old should-I-fall-for-the-trend-or-not dilemma. Agreed. I’ve steered clear of the bag, too, but that lucite!!! AHH. Just cool and different and limited edition enough to make it a possibility…
