Thirsty Thursday: Back-to-Schooltini + J.Crew Factory Fall

While our children will soon be back to school, I thought this sounded like a simple, refreshing cocktail to enjoy.
Cheers to surviving the summer!
1 oz vodka
4 oz apple juice
Splash of cranberry
Cinnamon stick
Mix all ingredients in a cocktail mixer with ice.
Shake vigorously.
Rim glass with sugar and cinnamon.
Strain into a martini glass.
Float a thin slice of apple and garnish with the cinnamon stick.
Cheers, Y’all!

J.Crew Factory is currently offering 30% off all new arrivals.  Trust me, get these while you can, because some will sell-out fast.  For instance, this quilted vest

J.Crew sold this vest last fall, and it was such a hot item then, that ladies were buying it off ebay after it had sold out, for more than double what it sold for at J.Crew.
Now the vest is back at J.Crew Factory, and the price is pretty hard to beat.
I love this little french hen.  So much that I can’t decide which top to choose.  Do I like him on the tee (that I can layer a long-sleeve shirt under later)?  The sweater?  Or the shirt?
The little french hen print is also featured on a girl’s dress too.
I probably have way too many coats, but I’m thinking of tossing one that’s been my go-to for church on Sundays in the fall/winter, because it has started pilling, and just doesn’t make the cut anymore.
Enter this navy cocoon coat.
…or this camel one.  Reminds me of Kate Spade, but at a much better price point.
The pink has already sold out.
This tee was a no-brainer.  How cute is that Boston Terrier?  Although at first I thought it was available for the boys, it’s actually a Men’s shirt.  Not sure if the hubs will dig it, but I think it could still work for pajamas.
The hubs’ birthday is on Monday, so I’ve been trying to think of some good gifts to get him.
I’m hoping he’ll like this Sherpa-lined flannel jacket.


I know it may be a little early to be talking outerwear, but I just wanted to let y’all know these Barbour Liddesdale coats just went on sale at Tuckernuck.  You may remember my post here, about how much I love mine.  I can’t wait to start wearing it again, once the weather cools off.  Just a heads up, Barbour coats are rarely on sale, so get this one while you can!  My Anchor ring is still available at Baublebar.
I know I’ve shared with y’all how much I love this Gap dress, and have worn it a lot this summer.
Well, now it’s an additional 50% off with code: GAPSALE, making it only $19.50.
Currently available in all sizes.  It runs big.  I’m a 4/6, and got the XS.

Happy Thirsty Thursday!

  1. I always forget to shop at J.Crew Factory, but I think I need to reinvest some time into that website.

    And that jacket on you? I love it!!

  2. The Liddesdale is already sold out but it's staying on my list! What size did you get? Barbour sizing is so hard to figure out. Thanks!

  3. I was so mad i didn't get that vest last year… I just ordered it…'s my first Factory order, I hope it lives up to my J.Crew expectations! Thanks for the tip 🙂

  4. Managed to scoop up the J.Crew Factory vest in store today! It looks like it's basically sold out online already. Thanks for the heads up! They had the plain colors fashioned after last years vests too!
