THEY’RE YOUR TAYLOR, GIGI AND KENDALL ALL ROLLED INTO ONE.

This Maiyet jacket is everything – not only a great office blazer, but also great over a wedding or holiday party outfit. The pants from the icon, Eileen Fisher, are those pants that you wish you could wear to the office everyday: comfortable, yet still dressy pants (they’re silk AND bluesign certified for chemical, energy and water use). Yes, please. And we’re always seeking heels that match our ethics and style requirements: check out this brand for both.

These brands and the others featured we admire for aligning with our values and consistently showing up and getting us through that meeting, or those what to wear moments in the morning. We can always come back to them – when you’re in a crisis they’re there. While we’ll admit there is some sticker shock with a few of the items, these are investments, plain and simple, like a good friendship. (Don’t we have to invest in good friendships? Yes, yes we do.) Each of these pieces will last you for the rest of your life. crossourheartshopetodie.

All of that said, this look can easily be replicated with some vintage and thrift shopping. That’s always a solid fall back strategy to find unique, but classic, wardrobe builders. TBH, here at team just, we can’t afford that gorgeous Maiyet jacket, but because we admire its beauty and its artisan elements we understand the price tag. And we’re patiently out there looking for something similar because we think the journey of building a wardrobe may take some time to stay true to your values and find the right items that fit your style and needs, but it’s also pretty fun. Like building a squad of good friends, it takes time, but with the right mix, isn’t it lovely to have pieces in your closet that you can rely on? And for those of you strapped for time, JUST is here for you. We’d like to be in your squad and we mean business – we’re on a quest to find the best brands, with the best stories and the best values for you: #squadgoals.
