Hello girls and Happy Tuesday! Ok, I know I have talked a lot about Christmas here lately and I’m sorry if my enthusiasm is exploding. I have no clue why I am so giddy, but I am this year! Maybe it is the fact that Brooklyn is so excited! Does anyone else get excited like this? Raegan got up early (and I mean early – I hadn’t finished my first cup of coffee yet) decorated the tree and wanted to start on the rest of the house. That wasn’t happening, not that early! HA!
Last Friday I received my new trunk from Trunk Club and it was so exciting to see what someone else had picked out for me! I have tried Trunk Club before but did not have great success, but it seems this time my stylist nailed it! So if you have tried it before and didn’t like it, give it another try with a different stylist.
I loved seeing what she sent me, trying on the clothes, stepping out of my normal boundaries and seeing all the ways I could wear what she sent.
I absolutely LOVED this outfit, the total outfit from head to toe, it was so me! The Corduroy Moto Jacket is the perfect jacket and the color rocks! I would have never picked this blouse and styled it with the jacket, but once I put it on – I was sold! The Madewell 10-inch High Rise jeans are a little pricey, but they are worth it! I typically do not purchase jeans that are this costly, but these fit so well, I now know why other fashion bloggers are raving about them. See them here.
Here are a few of the items that I liked and to my surprise, I really liked the Spanx leather leggings. They fit tight, but not like compression leggings and the waist was not tight at all, it gives you room to breathe and it does not give you a muffin top. I personally would wear the leather leggings a different way, but she sent this cute Gibson Off The Shoulder Sweater so I took a picture with it on.
The teal blouse and the printed blouse were my favorites out of the tops. There is one in the carousel below that was NOT flattering at all on me. It was not even picture worthy – trust me! It was very cute, but not for my body shape. Maybe it was the neckline – I’m not sure, whatever the reason – I did not like it for me.
The Madewell Transport Tote was – “Oh My Gosh I LOVED it”! See how I styled it on yesterday’s blog here. I liked the tote because you can wear it crossbody or over the shoulder and my MacBook Air fits perfect in it. It’s so much easier to work from the coffee shop carrying this instead of a backpack or laptop case. This is a great medium tote that is “mom-approved” for versatility and storage. I found a similar tote here that was much more affordable – under $30! I added a picture of it below.
I do want to mention that both pairs of booties were perfect for me (I am a boot fanatic). The (snake print) Rookie Bootie by Steve Madden was my favorite boot style. This boot comes in 4 colors and my favorite color is the chestnut! See it here. The Treasure and Bond Harrison bootie also comes in 4 colors and is a perfect match with the corduroy moto jacket! See that boot here.
What Was In My Trunk
My trunk had some really great pieces and I have put them all in the Shop The Post carousel below.
Have you tried Trunk Club yet? If you would like to give a try, go here. It’s so much fun having a personal stylist help you and give you outfit ideas. They even send you pictures of how to mix and match the pieces in your box to show you different ways to wear it. You can tell your stylist what you are looking for, whether it’s weekend casual, workwear, and even Christmas party attire! I have asked for weekend casual and comfy for my next Trunk, I can’t wait to see what Kimberly comes up with!

Raegan and I are spending time together today looking for new Christmas decor. She is really getting into the Christmas spirit this year, maybe it’s because she’s growing up. Whatever the reason, she is all about decorating! What are you girls up to today? Anyone get any snow yet? I saw on FB where one follower got 5 inches on Halloween – WOW!
Thanks for stopping by the blog and I hope you girls have a great day!
