I was working with a client recently and as we were choosing shoes for her outfit I realized that scallops are everywhere this season. I have even seen scalloped toilet paper. Now that is something new to me!! I was shooting some things recently for J.McGlaughlin and they have the cutest cropped scalloped jeans. I first discovered this fashion brand in Houston when shopping with my friend Roxie. I remember thinking that it was so wearable and fun and really had an East Coast feel to it. ( you know how much I love my trips to NYC and CT). There is a J.McGlaughlin store in Dallas near me (Preston Center East) and I have loved shopping there with several clients lately. I feel like I have discovered a fresh new boutique.
SCALLOPS ARE EVERYWHERE THIS SEASON
Scallops really add a feminine touch and it’s a subtle way to lighten your looks up. I think that the jeans are super cute and have a great fit. They come in white and denim with a nice wash that will take you through summer and be great for traveling. I found some other lovely pieces on the J.McLaghlin website like these cute shorts which come in six colors plus gingham. Love this sweater, so great for all seasons with feminine scallops on the hem and sleeves (comes in 3 colors). These scallop slides are so comfy and come in 3 great summer colors; white, yellow and pink. J.McLaughlin has such great versatile sweaters you can wear all year round. And this skirt!!
GREAT FASHION FROM J.McLAUGHLIN
I really had fun pulling some outfits together with Christy Callahan, store manger at J.McLauglin, and was impressed with the classic selection. I fell in love with this equestrian themed blouse and think the pattern is timeless and a little like Hermes for less. They have a fabulous selection of reversible belts and I think this gold bamboo buckle is really great looking. The colors are navy, white, saddle and orange. J.McLaughlin has quite a large selection of wicker bags. I was so impressed with all of them but really taken by this small cross body bag. Actually they call it a fanny pack but you can use it either way. My kids make fun of me if I wear a fanny pack!!! I love bags that are neutral and go with everything . I have a “crush” on this coral cashmere sweater with the button detail on the sleeve. In fact the color (besides black and white) I have in my wardrobe is usually coral. Lots of versatile shoes too like these cute neutral wedges. This is a good option because a wedge gives you a little height with comfort. Love the sunnies.

I wanted to tell you about my diamond dust silver ring from Brenda Schoenfeld who is an amazing jewelry designer. I have some of the things from her first designs and she has gotten even more creative. I realized after I wrote this that my ring is scalloped too!! Brenda has a new store at 3911 Oak Lawn in Dallas. You have to check it out. She has lots more than jewelry. Such a wonderful curate selection of collectable items.
