Trunk Club Box Reveal #3

Overall this month's Trunk Box was eh.  I had asked for some new athleisure wear pieces but didn't really like what came through as I had similar items.  Here's a review of it all and what I kept. 

This BP twist tee is cute but I have so many black shirts already that I really didn't need to add one to my wardrobe BUT if you are in need of something like this then I definitely recommend. 

This was one of the athleisure wear options.  I actually really like the Zella pants options...they fit me great in the length (which is hard without petite) but I couldn't get over the see through panels on the thighs...it made me too self-conscious.  The Nike hoodie is great too but I already have some like this so not a real need to add.

Here's another great athleisure wear options.  Love the color of these Converse sneakers and I would love to have kept them but just couldn't justify.  If I didn't have to wear work clothes everyday then I would definitely have kept them.  I was NOT a fan of the Trouve sweatshirt...was too small and the way the fabric was folded across the bust was just all wrong. 

I love the idea of getting a stylish backpack for the weekends or when I travel for work.  The great thing about this backpack is you could wear it that way or if you wanted it as a purse you could use the top handle.  I really like this Tory Burch one but the red just isn't for me.  I'd want something in black or gray. 

These Zella leggings were a keeper for sure.  Love the gray and black pattern and the sheer blocks were in just the right places.  They aren't super high waisted but I liked where they fit.  I love them so much that I wore them already to the gym this morning.  Highly recommend.

Five Friday Favorites #10

This week's Five Friday Favorites is dedicated to my favorites from Stella & Dot's new arrivals...

#1 - Constantine Chandelier Earrings 
I'm obsessed with these earrings.  I will wear them all the time this fall/winter with all the black outfits.  The earrings are two-in-one...the bottom part comes off and then you have just studs.  LOVE!

#2 - Clover Engraveable Necklace
You all know I'm a sucker for anything engraved so I was thrilled when they came out with new options.  First of my favorites is this beautiful clover necklace.  I got it engraved with my monogram but there are lots of options of what you can get.  It pairs nicely with the Terney necklace (just remove the delicate strands from the necklace)

#3 - Margeaux Clutch 
I love this bag...but I'm having a hard time deciding which color to get.  They both look amazing.  I'm leaning towards the gold/oyster one.  What do you think?

#4 - Wishing Bracelet 

Another perfect engraveable...this wishing bracelet is so dainty and perfect for everyday wear.  I got my girls initials on it with a heart in between but you can get really anything you want.

#5 - Chantal Pom Beanie 
I love beanie hats in the winter and this one is perfect because it has interchangeable pom poms...cream and gray.  Can't wait for it to arrive.

Five Friday Favorites #9

#1 - Atheleta Long Sleeve Top 
I have found a new love for Athleta leisurewear.  I can't believe it's taken me this long to try their stuff.  I'm LOVING this SPF Sunlover long sleeve top.  The color is fun and bright but the best part is this top goes with leggings, shorts, joggers...really anything.  I can wear it to actually work out or I can just lounge around in it.  Highly recommend.  True to size.  They have it in a short leave version I might have to pick up.  

Continuing my love for Athleta now, here's a sweater I'm obsessed with...it goes with any outfit.  You can dress it up or dress it down.  Very comfortable material.  Will definitely be a go to this fall/winter.  True to size, wearing an XS.   

#3 - Jewelry Travel Bag 
Whenever I travel, I never leave home without my jewelry travel bag from Stella and Dot.  There are so many compartments and details that help keep my jewelry organized.  I highly recommend this...even for an overnight trip.  It's perfect!!!


#4 - Poncho
I LOVE a good poncho and this Caslon one doesn't disappoint.  Soft sweater with a perfect fit (I'm wearing a petite).  Comes in a variety of colors and is a great price point.  I can't wait to bust this guy out all fall/winter long.  Dress it up with fun earrings or down with a pair of Uggs.  Sure to be a staple in my wardrobe.  

Stella and Dot came out with a new collaboration with Rebecca Minkoff and I'm really liking these pave earrings.  Perfect, simple earring when you aren't feeling very bold.  I can't wait to try these out.  They come with a cuff as well...not sure that I will rock it but we'll see.

Five Friday Favorites #8 - Stella & Dot edition

This week's Five Friday Favorite is all about my love for Stella and Dot.  It was hard to narrow it down to just five so hear are the five I've been wearing the most since my jewelry came in.

#1 - Gold Hammer Hoop Earrings (large)
Love these hoops!  Truthfully I probably wouldn't have picked them out myself (they were a gift from a friend and fellow Stella stylist) but I'm so glad I have them in my jewelry drawer because I wear them all the time.  They are a different take on a classic hoop...more oval shape and the opening is at the bottom.  I have the large ones but they also have smaller ones.  Come in gold, rose gold and silver.  They truly go with anything!

#2 - Engraveable Bangle
This was my last Stella and Dot purchase before I became a stylist.  I'm obsessed with this engraveable bangle - 1) it goes with everything and anything and 2) it means something to me because I had my wedding anniversary and both daughters birthdays engraved on it and separated by hearts.  What I love about the engraveable collection is you can do just about anything to it to personalize it to you liking.

#3 - Willow Cut Out Top 
Part of the reason I joined Stella (other than they have such fabulous jewelry and I was already a customer) is that they expanded the brand to include tops.  This is the first top I got and I love it.  It's a soft cotton with just a slight cut out at the top.  What I love is you can wear it with just about anything - jeans, nice pants, shorts...you can dress it up or dress it down.  I can't wait to try some of the other shirts!

#4 - Yves Wrap Bracelet 
The Yves wrap bracelet was a last minute add to my order per my friend and fellow stylist.  This is a big seller and now I know why.  It's the perfect bracelet to give your outfit a little something...goes great on its own or dress it up by stacking it with other pieces.  It's adjustable with three different sizes.  Love, love this!   

I absolutely love, love, love this necklace.  It's the perfect delicate necklace and you can engrave it with almost anything you want.  I decided to go with my wedding anniversary in Roman numerals so no one really knows what it is except for me.  A lot of people get coordinates done for a special for any occasions.  


I left one of my all time favorites because I posted about it last week which you can read about here.  And don't forget, I'm still running a giveaway for a $50 Stella & Dot gift card.  Anyone that makes a purchase in my Stella launch trunk show is automatically entered.  Start shoping here - https://www.stelladot.com/ts/km0ft

Five Friday Favorites #7


I am obsessed with these Steve Madden sandals.  The taupe suede color is the perfect transition color.  They have a chic chunkier heel for more stablity and comfort.  These shoes work for the office, a night out or as I wore the other day...back to school night at your child's elementary school.    Love, love, love and highly recommend.

#2 - Stella and Dot Rebel Necklace 

This necklace is one of my all time favorite Stella and Dot purchases.  I've had it for YEARS and it goes with almost anything.  Comes in gold, silver and rose gold.  Perfect staple jewelry piece.  Highly recommend!  Don't forget I'm giving one away on the Facebook page

#3 and #4 - Sleeveless LOFT Sweater and Vince Booties 

Love how versatile this LOFT sweater is.  I can wear it now as the weather transitions to cooler temperatures and then when it really starts to get cold I can throw a long sleeve shirt under it and keep wearing it.  Looks great with jeans or leggings.  I recommend sizing down.  I'm wearing an XS but returning for a petite XS.   And these Vince booties were an Anniversary Sale purchase that FINALLY came in!  I love them..they are cut nice and low, have a perfect heel and I love the distressed suede too!

#5 - La Croix Sparling Water


I am slightly addicted to La Croix sparkling water.  I drink 3-4 cans a day.  It's so refreshing and a great way for me to get my water in take.  Thankfully Costco sells it by the case!  My favorite flavor is Lemon.  What's your favorite La Croix flavor?

Trunk Club Box Reveal #2

Another great box from Trunk Club.  I liked most of the things that came.  Let's start with the tops and dresses that I liked.

First is this fabulous Madewell sweater.  I love the sleeves on this one...they don't have too much of a bell but still gives it a little something.  It's not to scratchy and I like that its not too long.  I don't have anything this color in my closet and I think I can definitely dress it up with a fun necklace.  The price isn't bad either at $79.50.  Definitely a contender to keep.

Next is this popular Gibson stripe tie sleeve sweatshirt.  Love the stripe, love the cuff and the fit is great!  I really, really like it but I technically don't need it.  I'm thinking about all the ways I can style it though...for work with my favorite Sloan pants and cute flats or a casual weekend outing with a cute vest for a pop of color.  It's a contender for sure.  

 I absolutely LOVE this shift dress from Eliza J.  It's a super pretty hunter green color...perfect for the holidays.  I love the sleeve detail and the back cut out.  I really don't NEED another dress but this one is sooo cute and I don't have anything like it in my closet.  Should I keep it?

I was pretty close to being 100% with all the tops/dresses in this box except for this one.

I can't find a link for this Caslon ruffle sleeve dress but just believe me when I say it doesn't work.  The material is pretty scratchy...I hated the color and the fit.  Overall this didn't work.


On the shoe front she sent me two options...

 I really liked these Kinslee ones from Cole Haan...very unique toe and I don't have suede ones which I liked.  Unfortunately they were too small and the heel was a bit to short for me.  I'm 5'1" and I really like a tall heel when I wear them.  Such a bummer they didn't work out!

Second pair were these Cole Haan nude flats.  I'm in the market for a new nude/camel colored flat but this just didn't work for me.  They are comfortable but I wasn't a fan of this style or color.


From a jewelry standpoint, I asked for some fun earrings to dress up my outfits and these are what she sent me.  Left to right - Nadri, BaubleBar tassel, Treasure & Bond.  They are all very nice earrings but I was looking for something with more color.

Ok so I need your help...should I keep the Madewell sweater, Gibson sweatshirt or Eliza J dress???
