i. met. jenna. lyons.

On Tuesday night I went to J. Crew event on Michigan Ave.
Lots of gingham, plaid & bow ties. Amazing.

Love this guy’s glasses. And the guy on the left, too.

Spotted her through a crowd across the room.
A better look.

{l to r} Me, Jenna Lyons, Alaina & Taylor.

Jenna Lyons {I prefer typing her whole name} is one of the most gracious & wonderful people I have ever met. She looked so chic in her blazer and button down, but we would not expect anything less from Jenna Lyons. I learned that she is from Southern CA, too {just outside of LA}. There was a line of people waiting to talk to her and she really took the time to get to know everyone. I still cannot believe I met her. Jenna. Freaking. Lyons. A big thank you to Sarah for telling us about this event!
I asked Jenna what the one piece was that we should buy at J. Crew right now. I know all about Jenna’s picks but wanted to know what her current favorite was. 
I bought the silk blythe blouse in poppy {left}
It is gorgeous. So bright & fun. Run to J. Crew! You need it. 
And here it is. Straight from my blog. Jenna’s pick.
The Jean Shop chambray shirt

Me, Alaina, Taylor & Sarah {l to r}.
Wishing I had worn different shoes. Oh, well.

 And one of my favorites. Jenna’s home {feature from Domino magazine}.

Once we finished our shopping, I had a little photo shoot with T outside of J. Crew.
Top, belt, shorts & ring – J. Crew | Shoes – Dolce Vita | Pearls – Christmas gift | Watch – MK

Please excuse how horrendously awkward I am on the other side of the lens. I {clearly} hate having my photo taken. I’ll stop complaining now.
And because I love saying & typing it…just one more time.
I met Jenna Lyons.
