I’ll occasionally mix in Old Navy and GAP, but the above 3 are my definite favorites.
Well, today I’m going share some great finds from two other places.
One of the retailers is Joe Fresh (I have talked about them before and really liked the items I received from them this summer) and the other, Gray Monroe, it totally new for me!
My friend Jenny (a fellow blogger) has opened up an online boutique called Gray Monroe! She sent me some items to try out (THANK YOU JENNY!), and I’ve gotta say, I was seriously impressed with the items. I am also impressed that SHIPPING IS FREE from Gray Monroe, which is not often the case with online boutiques like this. She has her return policy outlined under “returns”, and it is fair as well.
I am unable to get my links to connect to the exact item I’m highlighting, but I will tell you the name of the item so you can find it yourself on the site.
The site isn’t huge, so you shouldn’t have any trouble.
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
I’m almost 5’4″ (just a smidge shy).
I think they are going to be FANTASTIC for us girls on the shorter side, but I would NOT recommend them if you are over 5′ 3 1/2″. They didn’t seem to stretch out during the day, even though they are super stretchy and comfy. (Often super stretchy jeans are totally sagging by the end of the day). However, I did feel like that as I walked the length of the jeans got shorter…which is why I recommend them for those under 5’3 1/2″.
Here’s a close up of the jeans from all angles.
If you want longer jeans, try the Lane jeans. Just look for “Lane” under bottoms.
You might remember seeing the jeans on the blog last week in this outfit.
gingham henley / azul necklace / earrings /
grey buckle booties / similar cognac cross body (only $36)
This next top (also from Gray Monroe) is greatness!
It’s called the Rachel (find it under Tops), and I love it! THANK YOU JENNY!
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the sweater. It’s $40.
I think it looks great with the Evyn jeans and the black tassel necklace.
layered sweater / black lava tassel necklace / Evyn jeans / earrings / grey buckle booties
It’s a bit too short in the front for me to wear with leggings (again, I’m almost 5’4″), but the back is definitely long enough for me.
Must Have leggings in graphite heather / necklace / similar cognac boots
I love the putty color of the jacket and know it will be in heavy rotation this fall and winter! I also loved the collar on it and the quilted detail on the shoulders.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some different retailers!
My baby sister recommended THIS sweater to me last Friday and OH EMMMM GEEEEEEE she was right. It’s soooo soft, it’s so flattering, and it’s just plain easy to wear.
I think it’s DARLING!!!!! AND IT’S 40% OFF RIGHT NOW!!!!!
For size reference, I’m wearing a small, so I think it’s true to size.
navy medallion sweater / ag skinny ankle jeans / necklace / similar cognac boots
I love this navy one so much that I’m thinking about getting THIS one in the wine colorway.
The lighting is better in this next pic, but still a little off. THE SWEATER is definitely a great navy color, although it appears black in these pics.
I actually have several pair that I got from Old Navy several years back that I love (but they don’t have them in anymore), and I also have some from Target that I love (but again, they don’t have them anymore). So, anytime I was asked what I wear, I could never be any help!
But I received the following e-mail this week and I ordered THESE as a result!
– Kerri Bangle Lovejoy
One reader even said it was her “favorite thing she’s ever ordered off the blog” (and that she’s “ordered more than she cares to admit!“).
She got it in store last week and said she “wore it to work on Friday with a black pencil skirt and heels and wore it out Friday night with my hubby with skinny jeans and booties!“
She also said “it didn’t wrinkle at all” and that it looked “just as great that night after wearing it all day”.
v-neck blouse / Evyn jeans / earrings / grey buckle booties
My favorite watch is 25% OFF.
I haven’t make a big enough deal about it, but I’m afraid the sale price matching is going to end soon, so I thought I better talk about it. I wear this watch all year long and I absolutely love it!
It appears in probably 90% of my posts!!!

Listen, when I saw you in those jeans the other day, I was seriously impressed too! They looked super, super cute!
Erika Slaughter says
Everything I've seen from Gray Monroe has been cute!! And that Joe Fresh…I'm checking it out today!
That too from Loft is adorable!!! Also, the clothes from Gray Monroe are precious! Off to check them out!!
I'm from Canada and we LOVE Joe Fresh here! I have those lovely grey cords in burgundy! Such a great deal and perfect for fall. Thanks for the other suggestions! 🙂
Leigh Clark says
Great pics today! I am keeping my eye on the Loft shirt – but I struggle with navy and work appropriate skirts/pants — any tips??
Hi Leigh! If you are scared of the navy, get the one that is the wine color! Find the link right above the first picture of the navy sweater! Hope this helps! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Leigh Clark says
Ha – Brilliant! Duh!
I've just bought the navy sweater and wore it with a camel colored skirt yesterday and everyone said it was SOOO cute!!
Helen Truesdale says
I was shopping in JCPenny at the mall last week and I realized that the Joe Fresh brand is sold there! I was so excited! Do you have a JCPenny in Texas?
Hi Helen! I do, but I've found that the selection is often different than what is offered online. It is great to be able to see it in real life though!!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Queen In Between says
That Loft sweater is so much cuter on you than it is on the website model!!
Sheaffer – love your blog. Just a question on the LOFT sweater – are you wearing a small in the Petite or the Regular? Thanks!
Katelyn Magerko says
I just bought the Loft shirt in a small but am second guessing trying the xs but my store didnt have one. Did you happen to try the xs? The back on the small just seems baggy.
Paige Viollt says
LOFT is 50% off everything in stores only today! Just picked up that sweater – love it! Great recommendation!
Sheaffer – when you have a chance check out Jamie Higdon Randolph's rant about
"leggings ain't pants". I laughed out loud and thought of you!!
Marissa Coco Richmond says
Very cute! Hey, when you take pictures, I noticed that your eyes are looking away. TIP: If you are taking a mirror picture look in the mirror not at yourself or at your camera screen but at the small camera circle or optic- make sense? If you are taking a reverse shot, just look at the camera circle, but DONT look at your own eyes or the camera screen- I promise it will make your pictures look better because you know how to take a solid Selfie!
I bought the blue druzy necklace you featured a few weeks ago. I love it and it really does go with everything! Thanks and I'll keep reading! Jill
Does anyone know the JoeFresh 20 percent off, free ship promo code?! There is a think of you sign up for email newsletter they send it to you… I wasn't receiving it so I called and it takes ONE TO TWO BUSINESS DAYS to get the code?! Whaaaaat!!?!!! I wanted to order like now while they have my size. Anyone get the code?

Wonderful post! Great photos you have. Super cute!
Went to Loft at Uptown Park in Houston and the look on the salesperson's face was hilarious when I showed her the picture of the Navy sweater. Of course they were out of stock.
Matt and Lindsay says
I just have to tell you that I ordered the navy and medallion sweater and LOVE it! I had a baby 2 months ago and it's super flattering. I decided to order one for my sister's birthday since she also just had a baby and they were sold out online, but I was able to put one on hold at her store. I went into the LOFT near me (in Minnesota) to return the XS of the sweater (I kept the SM) and the sales ladies were all super excited to have another one in the store because they were all sold out – they said some lady had blogged about the sweater and they are all sold out! So apparently you have quite a few readers MN!!
