Anthropologie Jumpsuit

Hits and Misses

It’s finally time to refresh the warm weather clothing! I took a trip to the west coast specifically to get my wardrobe in order. There was a lot of trial and error. Here are some of my results.

Hits

Banana Republic Romper

We know I love a romper. This one from Banana Republic is a really drapey, soft fabric. I like that it’s a jersey because some of the woven rompers out there can look awkward around the mid-section to crotch area. The jersey makes it a lot more wearable. I think this will be great for weekend outings this summer.

Banana Republic Wide Leg Crops

I love a linen look. I tried on these pants in white and then ended up ordering them in this chambray color with a matching top. Again from Banana Republic, they are very comfortable and the perfect combination of trendy and timeless.

Anthropologie Jumpsuit

This jumpsuit has everything. All of the colors. I tried it on in Anthropologie when I was on the west coast and ordered it when it went on sale. I think it’s the perfect statement piece to stand out every once in a while. I also think rainbow is a big trend right now. Plus it’s very flowy and comfortable.

Misses

Loft Romper

This is so sad for me. I saw this online at the Loft and loved it, but when I got it in the mail it was not as cute. I don’t love the fabric, and the size was off for me. Maybe if I size up it will be better but I think it might be too big if I size up. I shall be returning it.

Anthropology Pink Dress

I also wanted to like this dress from Anthropologie but I cannot wear this color pink. It just didn’t do it for me. Plus it is a maze to get into. I tried it on and left it in the dressing room.

Victoria Secret Side Tie Bottom

I ordered a basic side tie bikini bottom from Victoria’s Secret and it was way too small! I should have read the reviews because they all confirmed this issue. You live and you learn! Return.

Our Best Life

All of our dreams have come true. Animal prints have reached peak saturation, and we need to take advantage before the trend passes. Why dress like a normal person when you could dress like Fran Drescher?

I’m a traditionalist in the sense that I love a leopard print the most, but there is something to be said for a snakeskin too. I have a pair of snakeskin pumps and they are my solution to every outfit. Below are some of the items I’ve been eyeing.

I think this sheath dress from J.Crew is such a no brainer for work. All you need is a black blazer or cardigan and some black shoes and you’re all set. A print like this just makes you look put together.

The only thing better than a leopard print dress is a leopard print maxi dress. Leopard takes on weekend brunch.

When I feel like wearing all black, these shoes are my solution. They instantly make the outfit look intentional rather than lazy.

Again, and outfit is made by one piece. Just throw on these pull on pants with a black tee, sweater, blouse, bodysuit, what have you, and you’re all set. It’s statement and neutral all at the same time. The best!

I love this for a weekend look. It’s so easy with some jeans or leggings whether you’re out and about running errands or hanging on the couch. So cute and comfy!

I’ve learned very quickly that a snakeskin pump is a classic and a staple. If you want compliments all day long, these are your shoes.

If you’re not from New Jersey and you can’t quite handle the all over print, this is your answer. It’s leopard lite to add a little interest to your basic black sweater.

When in doubt- accessorize.
