It’s taken me awhile to get this post together but I’m finally doing it. One reason might’ve been because I really wasn’t that excited about 2 of the shirts in this month’s box. Did you see the unboxing video? Yeah, I was at a loss for anything to say about them and, for that reason, I just wasn’t dying to try everything on. But…I got over that.
On another note, have you made it to the pool this weekend? We went today (got to wear a new suit, yay!) and it was glorious. The sunshine and water, 2 of my favorite things. Baby wasn’t sure about it at first but once he got used to the water and comfy in his new floatie, he just laid back and enjoyed us pushing him around. Pretty good life he has 🙂
Ok, let’s get down to business. First outfit I put on was the Eden Society Carter Straight Leg Pant ($68) and Pixley Landers Lattice Crochet Detail Tank ($78). I was excited I again had something to wear my striped wedges with. I don’t understand why I’ve never worn these out of the house. They’re comfy and adorable. Goal for the week: wear these dang shoes.
These pants fit great and I love the color. They look red in the picture but they’re more of an orange-red. The top, I like it. It’s lightweight and the lace detail adds a lot. I also like that it comes up high enough under my arms. The downside: it’s $78.
I kept the Pixley Detail Tank on and changed to the Dear John Finnegan Roll Cuff Chino Shorts ($58). Last month the stylist sent shorts that I liked but they were $78. Way more than I want to spend on a pair of shorts. The pair this month are more in my shorts price range, are a good length, and are comfy. They might be keepers.
And now we’re moving to the dreaded tops. You know how the saying goes…if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. That’s what was running through my head in the unboxing video. This unboxing video was quite a bit shorter than last month’s video because I really didn’t have anything to say about these last couple shirts.
Luckily, they weren’t as bad on as they looked coming out of the box. The first one, the Pixley Edmond Henley Knit Top ($54), I probably would’ve kept if it’d been a different pattern. I liked the 3/4 length sleeves, the stretchy fabric, and how long it was but I just couldn’t get over the pattern.
Similar story with the final shirt, the Skies are Blue Boulevard Cutout Top ($44). You can’t tell from this picture but it’s purple, not black. It fit much better than I anticipated but I couldn’t get past the pattern. At $44, this was a good price point for shirts for me and actually under the $50-$100 budget I’ve set for tops. If it’d been in a solid color, I probably would’ve liked it but it wasn’t. I forgot to get a picture of the back but it has a couple funky cutouts that are cute (you can see them in the video).
Check out the video I did for this review.
