Joe & Tell

If there’s one trend that seems to come back each Fall and Winter, it’s plaid. But plaid has a cousin and that cousin is buffalo check!  What’s not to love about either pattern when it shows so well in red and black?

So, here is my version of the classic show and tell using the items from Joe Fresh (Superstore or Loblaws).  They are completed stocked full with options (let’s call it updated plaid) and here is what I found in store last week:

These adorable slip on booties/slippers for babies and toddlers.  How cute!

 

This dress would look great with black tights or leggings and booties, wouldn’t it?

 

And if you didn’t wan to wear red and black plaid, you could carry it!

 

This bomber style jacket would be a fun way to add a little colour and style while keeping warm.

 

Lastly, these duck boots were under $50 and were very warm and comfortable.  I probably wouldn’t wear them in the rain, but they would be great for cold weather.

I have to admit I didn’t buy a thing!  But I could always go back for that tote and maybe the dress…and….more!

Joe & Tell

Another week and more groceries. Which means another browse around the Joe women’s clothing section at Superstore.

The department was packed with so many great things that I couldn’t just limit myself to one item this time.

So what did I find?

These booties came in both black and chestnut.  Wouldn’t they look great with boyfriend or skinny jeans?  The downside?  They are not leather, but they are only $39.

 

I ❤️ slip ons and this pair did not disappoint.  They were only $34!  It’s hard to tell but they are navy blue with little white flecks.  Could easily wear these with boyfriend or skinny jeans all season long.

Lastly…

Cigarette pants!  I noticed these while I was in France this summer and wrote about them here.  I apologize for the lighting – the fluorescent lights at Superstore don’t really lend themselves to great photos!  These pants are more straight than skinny and hit right about at the ankle.  A nice change from the everyday skinny jeans and only $34.

Could you see any of these items in your Fall wardrobe?  Let me know in the comments.

And that’s it for this week’s edition of Joe & Tell!

Joe & Tell

Most of the kids I know like show and tell.  What’s not to like about taking your favourite toy or book to school and telling everyone all about it?

So, with back to school upon us, I’m reminded of this tradition and thought I would start a show and tell of my own.

I frequently buy my groceries at Superstore and the good thing about that is….they also sell clothes, household goods and fun things. It’s not Target, but it’s the closest thing we’ve got!

Their house brand of clothing is called Joe Fresh and its carried in stores throughout Canada.  JC Penney used to carry the brand and there was a store in NYC, but it appears you can only order online in the US as of now. Correct me if I’m wrong.

Thus, after today’s shop, Joe & Tell was born!  I’ll try and make this a regular feature and show you something on trend that I think you might like.

Today’s find is this olive green utility jacket.  It’s only $49 and only available in this colour.   I usually wear a small, but this small was still a little big, so I recommend sizing down.

This jacket style is still on trend.  It is such a great piece to wear now and transition into Fall.

What do you think?  Could you see this jacket in your Fall wardrobe? Please let me know in the comments!

Friday’s Fun Finds

When you just pop in to grab a few groceries, you don’t always expect to find fun clothes and cool home accessories.  But that is what happens when you go to Superstore or Loblaw’s as it is known back East.  When these stores started selling Joe Fresh  alongside the fruit and veggies, the grocery shopping game changed.

Here’s what I found last week:

My kids love chips and salsa and veggies with dip.  These little bowls would be the perfect solution for snack time.

My love of all things plaid and a cabin in the woods is summed up with this great basket and it was less than $20!

The chevron print on this glass water bottle caught my eye and it’s such a cool looking bottle it might inspire everyone to drink more water.

This jacket was in the athletic section and was just the prettiest shade of purple and mauve.  I’ve bought some of their workout gear before and the quality is pretty good for the price.

Of course this grey puffer coat caught my eye. I bought the grey puffer vest and love it!

Lastly, this guy came home with me, along with my groceries.  Isn’t that why I originally went to Superstore?

Have a great Fall weekend!

Fun Finds – Home edition

Since the demise of Target here in Canada, I’ve had to look elsewhere for my home decor inspiration.  I’m always heading back to Superstore (Loblaw’s), Winners, HomeSense and Marshall’s and here are a few of my recent finds:

These towels say it all!

Outdoor dishes and glasses in my favourite shade of blue and those fake topiaries are pretty cute, too!

These woven baskets felt really sturdy and came in several different shapes and sizes.

This fun rug would be great at the front door during Summer.
