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.
Two Items I picked:
Green Maxi Dress
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
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.
Blue Tank Top
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.
Super not flattering.
Green patterned dress
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, 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.
Here are a few things I’ve been wearing to beat the heat.
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
I 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
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
I love this Boden Summer Skirt from Boden. It also happens to be on clearance now.
Summer Shorts from Old Navy
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.
Here’s a few pics of what I’ve been wearing this spring.
Old Navy Dress
I think they sold out of this, but I got this striped tank dress from Old Navy in the early spring. I paired it with a blue cardigan from Banana Republic.
Moto Style Jacket and Metallic Ballet Flats
I got this moto jacket the day after Christmas when shopping with my cousin. I decided to pair it with a sweater tee from Paris, my metallic pink ballet flats and layered gold jewelry.
The sweater is from Target, the tee from Boden, necklace from Charming Charlie and the jeans from Ann Taylor Loft.
Black and White
Black and white blouse from Loft, Jeans from Loft, and pop of blue with my flats from DSW. The white jacket is from Old Navy.
Black and White Part 2
I found these curvy capris at Kohls and was so happy! Cute patterned pants that fit me, very rare. The top is from Target and the necklace an old stitch fix.
Golden Tote top
This white blouse was from one of my recent Golden Totes and I paired it with some gold jewelry from Charming Charlie and a suede moto jacket.
For work I paired this with an off white linen/denim jacket. I love this dress and the fit is right on for me.
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
Unfortunately 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
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.
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.
I got inspiration for the red jeans outfit from pinterest. I wouldn’t have thought to pair stripes with leopard print, but it works!
I got this dress from Kohls on Black Friday. It’s a nice soft knit and warm for the office.
These are my cobalt pixie pants from Old Navy and my beloved bomber jacket from Golden Tote.
Here I paired my Boden British Tweed Mini with a sweater I got from Target (also on Black Friday) and my Loft booties.
The skirt is from a few years ago from Loft, and the blouse is from ModCloth or Piperlime, I can’t remember which.
Drapey Cardigan from Golden Tote surprise item.
Knit Dress from Golden Tote as a surprise item.
And again, my bomber jacket from Golden Tote which I love wearing. The sweater is from Target.
I decided to try out some nice fall color combos using my favorite hues. I started with mustard and eggplant.
I got the dress at Anthropologie last year, the cardigan and necklace are from Old Navy, and the boots are old.
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.
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.
Last, 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.
