And it’s full of pretty pastels and leopard prints

J.Crew just launched its first line of intimates, and it has catapulted us right into spring.

The brand's first-ever offering of bras and undies features a variety of laid-back styles that are meant to be mixed and matched. The pieces, which range from bralettes and unlined underwire balconettes to soft cotton thongs and bikini-cut bottoms, are available in five different fabrics and an array of sweet pastels and sheer brights. The offering also includes a handful of fun—but definitely not in-your-face—prints. (And, of course, plenty of black and blush for those of you who don’t like to take lingerie risks.)

Oh, and the entire line is under $40, so you have no excuse to not give your lingerie drawer a much-needed revamp.

To top it all off, J.Crew teamed up with vegan nail polish brand Veque to create a line of polishes inspired by the collection, because obviously, we want to match our toes to our bralettes. You can snag the six shades for $18 a pop. 

Welp, here's just another reason to lounge around the house in our underwear all day (or, better yet, put the underwear-as-outerwear trend to the test). You can shop the full collection starting today at JCrew.com.

Take a closer look at all of the newness, below.

I'm cackling

Last year, Balenciaga released bright red square-toed mules which bore a striking resemblance to McDonald's french fry cartons. Now, the chain has fired back at the designer, threatening to release its own version of the shoes.

McDonald's Sweden posted a photo to its Instagram of a person wearing actual McDonald's fry cartons as shoes, and honestly, if there weren't yellow M's printed onto them, I'd have a hard time distinguishing them from the Balenciagas from a distance. Though the post doesn't directly reference the Balenciaga shoes, one can only assume that's who they are trolling.

McDonald's version actually makes for some pretty fly slip-ons, if you ask me. Good thing the Swedish branch of Mickey D's seems to be considering releasing the shoes if the post receives enough attention. The caption of the Instagram post translates to, "If we get 103042 likes we release these for real," though it only has about 17,000 as of publish time. These would likely cost much less than the Balenciaga shoes, which cost $545.

Internet, do your thing. I want a pair.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.
