this to that

j-crew-pantsI saw these pants (and a skirt!) in real life and they're stunning - like an expensive men's silk tie in a gorgeous medallion print blown up to a larger scale. I'm physically incapable of paying full price at j crew. with all those extra 25% or 30% off sales and then the ridiculous 40% off clearance sales why would anyone pay full price?? I'll likely check daily to see find the best coupon option online but until then, I plan to try my hand at a necklace using shades of navy and cobalt.

PS - I really wish j crew had used this fabric for a necktie or pocket square, too but they didn't. pocket squares make great little scarves - I have a stash of them from my days at GQ and it's such an inexpensive way to get this look.
