I gotta say I'm really loving J.Crew basics for this upcoming spring/summer season. Hot vacation getaways on beaches are never the time to be fussy and precise, so it's easiest to pack breezy basics with simple accessories and unkempt hair. I'm not a big fan of summer, but that sounds pretty amazing right now. Spring collections are filtering in, and I recently spied these little beauties (which I had to have to sooth my often sullen moods). Spring fever's heading your way, and what better way to cope than with a little reasonably-budgeted retail shopping?
