because really, J. Crew is beautiful this season. Seriously. I would punch my mother in the face for everything in the store. The palate consists of light pastels, which if done properly (and they are) can be just lovely. My mother took me shopping there today for my birthday on Thursday and bought me this adorable washed ruffle-collar trench. I've wanted a cropped jacket for a long time but normally they look tragically sad on me. This jacket, however, somehow manages to not make me look like a linebacker, which I am very grateful for. Now I need adorable colorful shorts and happy spring dresses to go with it.
