JCA "Help Style Me!" Weekly Post

This is the weekly "Help Style Me!" post, where we can share items we are having trouble putting outfits together with. Elaine (in this post) says it best, "You know, that thing you bought because you love it and you keep pulling it out and then putting it away without wearing it?"

Please share your J.Crew item (either that you own or are thinking about getting) that you would love help creating an outfit with.

Also, please help out by offering your styling advice. Feel free to include links to your blog (where you incorporated that piece) or to Polyvore (where you showcased an outfit with that piece). Thanks in advance! :)


  1. Hi JCAs, reviews of the stripe Jackie w/anchor buttons and Collection silk colorblock blouse.

  2. I styled some recent J. Crew Factory items (skinny ankle jeans in white and in poppy, layering tee in navy stripe, anchor blouse) here

  3. I just picked up my first No.2 pencil skirt in double-serge cotton. The fit is spot-on for me, but I'm surprised at how thick the fabric is. Any words or caution (or comfort) about it being too heavy/hot for summer? I'm in the upper Midwest, but it can get pretty steamy here at times and the A/C at work doesn't always keep up. Thanks in advance!

  4. Need some non-work styling ideas for the "minty green" linen schoolboy blazer I just got...otherwise, back it goes.
