We Interrupt the Snow for a J.Crew Spring #ACCESSORYFIX


Another shopping season is upon us and I’m sitting on my hands waiting to scoop up J.Crew’s spring collection (anyone else put things in their cart without buying?). I couldn’t, however, resist the new Uptown Tote ($178) in the best poppy red. It’s waiting none to patiently to join my ever-nautical wardrobe while the SNOW melts. It’s such a nice size—not quite a full-on tote, which honestly can feel heavy summer, but roomy enough to carry me through a work day. J.Crew’s head womenswear designer Tom Mora agrees: “The Uptown Tote is such a useful bag! The size is ideal, it has an inside pocket to keep smaller items together, and it ties to stay securely closed.  We particularly love the bright colors – it’s an amazing compliment to an outfit, especially as we start to transition into spring.” It was definitely a toss up between the red and this perfect shade of blue . . .
