Golden Tote May 2016

I decided to go for it and get a Golden Tote this month, mostly because they had a few really adorable dresses I wanted.  Here’s what I got.

Golden Tote May 2016

Two Items I picked:

Green Maxi Dress

Golden Tote May 2016

I really like this on.  It’s flattering and soft and I can see myself wearing it a lot this summer.

Red Boho-Style Dress

Golden Tote May 2016

This is shorter than I’d like, but I can get away with it on the weekends.  Love the color and will pair it with lace up sandals.

Surprise Items:

Blue Tank Top

Shoes May 2016 029

Golden Tote May 2016

Not really flattering and a style that I dislike, but I might wear it once just to give it a chance.  It’s very on trend right now.  Just not good for my body type.

Cropped Top

Super not flattering.

Golden Tote May 2016

I do like this dress, but it’s one of those things I feel like I’ll be fussing a lot with.  Because of the elastic waist and gathering I had to keep pulling it down when I moved otherwise it gathered very unflatteringly at the top.

Overall

Overall, would I do it again soon?  Probably not, but I did get a few dresses that I like.  Unfortunately the two tops were awful and unflattering, and had this been stitch fix everything but the green maxi dress would have gone back.

More Summer outfits

Here are a few things I’ve been wearing to beat the heat.

Boden Skirt and top

Boden Skirt and Top

I love this skirt and I paired it with a soft knit blouse also from Boden.  Great summer work outfit.

Old Navy Maxi Dress

Maxi Dress from Old NavyI was so happy to find this dress at Old Navy.  It fits really nicely and the fabric is a soft stretchy knit.  Great find!

Golden Tote top and white jean shorts

Golden Tote and Loft

The top is from Golden Tote and is still available in the July tote.  It came in some really cute other prints too.  The shorts are curvy fit from Loft and a very happy find.  It’s hard to find shorts that work and these were just long enough for work, paired with a jacket for the AC.

Boden Summer Skirt 

Boden Summer Skirt

I love this Boden Summer Skirt from Boden.  It also happens to be on clearance now.

Summer Shorts from Old Navy 

Old Navy Shorts

These shorts are really outside of my comfort zone, but they are so comfortable and soft.  When it’s 90 plus degrees outside it’s a great way to look fashionable and stay cool.

 

 

Spring Outfits

Here’s a few pics of what I’ve been wearing this spring.

January Outfits

Here’s what I’ve been wearing this month that I remembered to take pictures of.

Boden Sixties Mini and Lightweight Roll Neck

I love the striped top combo with the navy skirt and tights.  This is one of my favorite Boden skirts.

Boden Isla Dress

Boden Isla DressUnfortunately it looks like this dress is completely out of stock on their website.  I really love this dress for the winter and it fits very nicely.

Loft Red Skirt and Polka Dot Top

This felt very “Valentines Day” to me, but I love the bright red skirt and black/white combo.  I realize I’ve been wearing those shoes a lot recently.

Leopard Pointy Toe Pumps

These are the selena pump from Nine West, but it looks like these are sold out online too.  I love these shoes!  I paired them with my coated skinny jeans from Loft and a sweater from Target.

Pink 80’s Shoes

pink shoes

These are the Speakup Flats from Nine West, but no longer available in this amazing color.  They always remind me of the 80’s when I wear them.  The top is from Golden Tote.

December Outfits

Looking back, I see that I wore a lot of black and Cobalt blue.  I’ve definitely made the transition to dark winter colors without even realizing it.  Here’s what I’ve been wearing.

Red JeansI got inspiration for the red jeans outfit from pinterest.  I wouldn’t have thought to pair stripes with leopard print, but it works!

Cobalt Blue Dress

I got this dress from Kohls on Black Friday.  It’s a nice soft knit and warm for the office.

Pixie Pants

These are my cobalt pixie pants from Old Navy and my beloved bomber jacket from Golden Tote.

Boden British Tweed Mini

Here I paired my Boden British Tweed Mini with a sweater I got from Target (also on Black Friday) and my Loft booties.

Chevron print blouse

The skirt is from a few years ago from Loft, and the blouse is from ModCloth or Piperlime, I can’t remember which.

Golden Tote drapey cardigan

Golden Tote Dress

Knit Dress from Golden Tote as a surprise item.

Golden Tote Faux Leather JacketAnd again, my bomber jacket from Golden Tote which I love wearing.  The sweater is from Target.

 

Fall Color Combos

I decided to try out some nice fall color combos using my favorite hues.  I started with mustard and eggplant.

Fall Colors

I got the dress at Anthropologie last year, the cardigan and necklace are from Old Navy, and the boots are old.

Plum and Teal

Next I tried this combo with my eggplant/plum colored jeans and a teal green sweater.  I love the color combo and it felt so appropriate for fall.

Golden Tote Swing Dress

 

Here I paired my swing dress from Golden Tote with an eggplant chevron patterned scarf from Charming Charlie (my new favorite accessory store!) and a bracelet watch from Charming Charlie.  If you have a store near you, I highly recommend it.  The store is organized by color and it is so much fun to browse there.

Kimono topLast, I wore this Kimono I got while in London from Dorothy Perkins.  I paired it with a solid black tee and black jeans.  The flats I got from DSW last year and I love the color.
