Sometimes I Shop :: March Trunk Club

It's time for another Trunk Club haul! We're going through a transition period with this trunk. My last stylist appears to have left the company, so I've now been assigned Jayme. The first trunk she sent me was definitely off (I wish I'd taken a screenshot!), so I sent her a few of my favorite Pinterest boards and asked her to take another shot at it.  We have a new relationship, so it's really important to be vocal about what you want from your stylist. I tend to be a bit reserved about these sorts of things, but then I remembered - Hey - it's her job to find stuff that I want! No sense in taking a trunk that leaned a little too boho for me just to avoid hurt feelings! My second trunk from Jayme was much better, so here's what she sent me. Sign up to try Trunk Club here.

So a quick refresher - It's $25 to get a trunk, but that money goes towards any purchases you make. If you're a Nordstrom cardholder and use your Nordies card, it's FREE! In this trunk I got one pair of shorts, overalls, one dress, three tops, and three pairs of shoes.

I had been curious about these infamous Rag & Bone booties, but they were too hard to get on and just a little pricey, especially since we're going into spring now. Pass.

This top from Bobeau is SUPER soft! I just checked the website and it comes in several colors and is only $42. I ended up passing because I wasn't crazy about the oatmeal color, and I knew that I'd end up wearing it around the house as loungewear more than anything else, but I'd consider it in a different shade.

SO CUTE RIGHT? These were too small for me - and only come in S/M/L instead of number sizing. As much as I love my Rag & Bone full length overalls, $300 seemed too pricey for such a seasonal item.

I can't even begin to tell you how much I hated both of these tops. I'm not surprised they were included, since it's basically all you can find right now (I hate them too, Jezebel), but these are both a big ole nope. 

It's not all doom and gloom though, because I absolutely ADORE this dress. It's the softest jersey fabric that actually feels nice and thick, with POCKETS. I've already dressed it up with heels and a statement necklace, and dressed it down with sneakers and a denim jacket. Keep keep keep! It also helps that it was super affordable. I haven't worn Calson's stuff before, but I'm keeping it on my radar after this dress.

Another unexpected keeper was this pair of gorgeous Steve Madden heels! They've got a decidedly Aquazurra vibe (for a lot less) and are super comfortable. They also look adorable with the black dress above. They're going to get a lot of mileage in this spring and summer. They come in four colors!

I passed on these Alice + Olivia shorts, mostly because I have a pair from The Limited that looks almost identical. They're very cute and well made, though. I wish she'd sent me this jazzy pair instead!


Finally, in my eternal quest to be as basic as possible, I had to keep these Adidas Superstars. This will now be my third pair of non-athletic Adidas and I am apologizing for NOTHING because they're comfy af and look super cute with almost everything. These run a little large, but Jayme made it really easy to exchange them for a smaller size.

All in all, it was a pretty decent first trunk with Jayme. Trunk Club remains one of my favorite ways to shop for new things I might not have seen otherwise, and I'll continue to review them here if you guys are interested. If you'd like to try it for yourself, you can sign up here.

Want to see what I got in some other Trunks? I blogged the last two as well.

AJ Wears :: A Sporty Sweatshirt

I saw this shirt/sweatshirt combo on H&M's Instagram the other day, and ta da! I had to have it. ADVERTISING WORKS. I've been favoring slouchy, sportier styles lately, and LOVE these sneakers. I may or may not have ordered another pair of Adidas from Asos last night.

I did. I also bought some Casper pillows, a face mask from Sephora, and a rose gold swimsuit. Someone needs to cut off my internet connection.
