I always think the most quintessential J.Crew look you can wear is when you mix something more Uptown (i.e. this skirt) with something Downtown (i.e. these sneakers and jacket).
I have had this jacket for a while and just love it…perfect fit and color, plus you can’t beat the price! These sneakers were from the Superga collection at Target but I also wear these Old Navy ones a lot.
I also feel that mixing formal pieces with casual items is more doable for real life and definitely more mom friendly!
Skirt-old Jcrew but check here for pop backs
Sweater- old Banana Republic but here is a good dupe
