Find of the Week: Jenna Lyons’ Summer Must-haves

May 14, 2010 | By | Comments (2)

When we asked J. Crew creative director Jenna Lyons “What’s
In Your Beach Bag?” for the May issue of Coastal
Living
, I was taking careful notes…and making a shopping list too!

The genius behind J. Crew, whose been with the company for
more than 20 years, lives the cheeky, relaxed style seen in the dog-eared pages
of our catalogues. Here’s a little style stimulation for your Summer Friday,
courtesy of cool girl Jenna Lyons:
