Reminder: Last Day to Save 25% Off $150+ at J.Crew - The Promo-Priced Items & Markdowns List

Just a reminder that today is the last day to take advantage of the 25% Off $150+ STYLE25 promotion at J.Crew. This includes full-price, promo-price, and sale items...yay! They have also done a 'switch-up' on the Promo-priced items this week...a lot of new items have been marked to promo-price, while others have gone back to regular-price or marked down to sale price (now making them final sale).  I have updated the Women's list, and you can see the Men's Updated List here.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Promo-priced items, they are select Regular-price pieces that J.Crew marks down to a 'Promotional Price' for a short amount of time. These items are eligible for any extra % off sale or full-price promotions that may occur at any time. The Promo-priced items are also eligible for the Educator and Student Discounts, so if you are a teacher or student you can receive an additional 15% off on them, as well.

The promo-prices are usually in effect for a week or two (sometimes longer), then they either go back up to full-price or move on into Final Sale.

A Little This, A Little That...

Love This...




And This...




Absolutely Stunning...




This Too...






I'm sure most of you already know that J.Crew debuted a handful of new arrivals onto their website this week. You can click here to check them out...see anything you like? Nothing for me this time around, although I did recently acquire the Biennial Medium Satchel In Calf Hair (a fairly recent new arrival) and look forward to carrying it soon. (If you missed my review, you can see it here.)

J.Crew is also offering 25% off orders of $150+ with code STYLE25 at checkout until 9.30.12. There were new Promo-priced items and markdowns this week for both the Women and Men which are also eligible for the extra % off. I've updated both lists, which you can see here and here respectively.


In other news...my search for comfortable dresses to wear at home this fall continues. I would like to find a couple that not only work well for my daily life of teaching school lessons, computer work, cooking, cleaning, and any other domestic duties that arise, but also look decent enough to wear out of the house for running errands if need be.




Speaking of dresses...do you happen to remember the Merona® Womens Printed Faux Wrap Dresses from Target that I purchased back in January and blogged about in this post, this post, and this post, too? Well...I thought you might be interested to know that I have continued to wear them on a weekly basis and they are still going strong! They have now both been laundered many, many times, and still look the same as the day they arrived at my door. Very cute and comfortable to wear, not to mention very affordable and durable. At this point their CPW is pretty much free! :)




Do you ever have those times when there is so much on your plate that you start to feel completely overwhelmed? Well...that has been me the past week or two. Life was going ok until I injured my back, and it seems ever since then I have been playing 'catch-up' on everything. This past week in particular has gotten away from me with dental appointments for the boys, speech and therapy appointments for my 6-year old, school lessons, housework, etc...




At times like this I try to remind myself to take one hour or even just one minute at a time. To remember that not everything is 'high priority', and that I should focus on taking care of the matters that ARE the most important first...leaving the others for later, or even for another day. Now this is no easy task for me, as I have a 'to-do' list every single day, and would love to get every single item checked off, yet rarely do.  For me, it is very important to remember that it is not the end of the world if I do not finish every task I set out to do each day (as I often think it to be), and to be satisfied with knowing that I have done my best to take care of my family and other responsibilites...even if there is still a mountain of laundry to do.


What about you? What do you do when you start to feel overwhelmed? Any tips you'd like to share?

That's it for now...


So what have you been up to this week? Do you have any special plans for the upcoming weekend? Please do share! I always love to hear from you! :)
