Sweet & Tough

Mixing in my fall camo jacket with my summer polka dot denim.  This jacket has proven to be an easy wear and I like to mix it up with more girly items.  

Jacket:  Zara

Sweater:  J. Crew

Pants:  AG (similar in cords, similar budget version)

Shoes:  Pour la Victoire

Purse:  c/o Coach

t+j Designs Jewelry:  Four Layer Crystal Necklace  |

Luxe 18k Pave Link Bracelet  |  Double Wrap Chain Link Bracelet (bestseller, only $15)  |

Love Beads to launch next week

Back to Chicago with a cold that I caught from my son.  I was a bit under the weather for a couple of days but feeling better now.  Thank you all for your lovely comments from the last post.  Means a lot and keeps me motivated.  There are days/weeks where taking a photo and writing the post seems to take me longer than usual.  Trying to balance it all seems to overwhelm me sometimes. The nice comments are much appreciated!

My sister and I are excited to start Fab Fifties for t+j Designs.  You’ll see a special deal every Friday – Sunday featuring an item from our store for 50% off!  This weekend, this fabulous necklace I wore below (comes in silver or gold) is 50% off. Use code FABFRIDAY, get the deal here.  Keep up with our specials deals and new arrivals by signing up for our emails here and/or liking our Facebook page.
