When you think of all American style, what brand comes to mind? If you are from the East Coast than many of you would think of the brand, J.McLaughlin. The brand was started by two brothers in 1977 in Manhattan in the quintessential Upper East Side. The brands classic take on current trends is what led to their success and expansion into Texas and now 100 new stores. To me, the brand is the epitome of Southern classic style. Last week myself, Mackenzie and Amanda hosted a shopping and dinner event in Dallas with a few friends to check out the new Summer/Spring collection.
Thanks to J.McLaughlin, the hosts and our guests each picked out an outfit to wear for the event. When I was browsing the new Spring collection I knew this white linen shirt would be a repeat offender all season long. I found this skirt to match and I figured there was no better time than to wear white linen. We started with a little champagne at the store while we chatted and browsed the new collection. Merritt found the cutest silk scarf while I lusted over all the handbags. I have been wearing this saddlebag 24/7 and have received so many compliments. I also think this clutch would be perfect for a summer wedding, or this overnight bag for a quick weekend trip.
As if we weren’t having enough fun shopping the store, the night continued with a beautiful dinner at Bistro 31 in Highland Park Village. A few glasses of rosé and my best girlfriends made it a night we will never forget. :)
