Wishlist for Kim R., March, 2014
Professional, Feminine but not girly, Relaxed
Per your request, your complimentary wish list is weighted heavily towards jeans and leggings that can coordinate with your other new pieces from the Limited and Nordstrom. Your recent purchases are more exciting, these are to round everything out, help finish up the outfits and make sure everything can be functional for your lifestyle. Let me know if you have any questions! I also added a couple because it seems like that would be especially helpful for you right now.

Uniqlo and American Apparel make my favorite leggings. Great quality, affordable and a wide variety of color choices. Leggings are functional, but as shirts get shorter, leggings will become less current. So, try to keep that in mind when purchasing. I chose these because they walk the line between pants and leggings. I have them and have for months. They look like the day I purchased them in early September. The seem down the center of the leg elongates your frame and dresses them up. You might even consider a white pair for spring. I have cream and dark grey. The cream are not see through.
Because the inventory on sizes are low, I'm not including these denim leggings as one of your 5-8 suggestions. But, they are definitely something you could keep in mind. Available in an array of colors, they are crazy comfortable, well made and affordable. I like the light blue or grey for you, although sizes are limited. You can also roll them up a bit in the spring/summer to show off your ankles. Try them with your ankle boots or your new blue flats, a tee and a scarf. Or, go for a v-neck sweater with a jacket over top for a more professional look.
Here they are. Your jeans. Slim fit boot cut with a mid rise waist and a lighter wash, they are flattering for your figure and have stretch to make them more comfortable. An investment piece, but well worth it. This cut balances out your frame. Roll them up in warm weather to show off your ankles. The wash helps elongate your frame, as well. I went for something from Nordstrom so you could try and return if they aren't quite right. But, I think they'll make you very happy:) Professional enough for the office, but casual enough for all of life's adventures.
You need this. It matches everything. It's crazy current. It's easy and can be layered endlessly. Try it as an overskirt with a tank underneath, on it's own as shown or under a sweater. Add a blazer and a scarf for more options. This will quickly become a staple in the office and on the weekends.
I am obsessed with this. The vertical stripe elongates your frame and the white or dusty pink are subtle enough for your top half. Wear it with a nude cami underneath for something a little racier on the weekend. Or, try the chambray shirt underneath and a blazer on top for multiple layers in the cold. Colored pants, patterned shoes and a clutch and you are good to go. Peel layers for more options. So good. There is additional detail on the arms. Good stuff all around.
Love this. It's feminine but not girly, practical and on trend. Plus, it's great for your body type. Pastels and midi skirts are big for spring and summer and you look great in shades of purple. Plus the large, deep pockets mean no need to carry a bag when you run to the coffee shop from work or to the park with Thomas. Pair it with a basic t-shirt or chambray shirt. Or, try it with your navy and white striped t-shirt. Alternatively, dress it up with a blazer.
Soft jersey fabric that is comfortable enough for the work day, the farmer's market or sitting on the floor with Thomas. The bold print is fun, feminine and not too girly and it is easy to care for. Dress it up with your chambray shirt or a blazer over a tee or tank. It would be great with a denim jacket and the navy circle scarf. Add your blue flats and you are good to go. Or, try it with booties and a v-neck sweater. Fun and functional. Good stuff.
An essential for any Seattle-ite and especially for any mom of a young child. Made of jersey material, it's soft, easy to care for and adds visual interest to any look. For you, a neutral is better up top. Choose a color that you love and looks great on your skin. I suggest navy, but there are a wide array of choices. It looks great with something more casual or dressy and everything in between. As an added bonus, it's a great stroller cover to shield Thomas from the rain or sun or a soft blanket in the car.
The navy blue cardigan is a staple for spring and summer. Pair it with colored pants, any of your spring skirts or over dresses. Available in multiple colors, you could also try cream to go over your coral and cream dress. Or, add a chocolate brown cardigan over that dress. Fear not, I'll show you how to layer. Regardless, great quality, affordable and another go to item that can pair nicely with the bolder pieces we found at the Limited.
The best part, the fabric has UV protection. Yes!
I love this for you. They are available in multiple colors, so lots of choices. Relaxed, feminine but not girly, it is easy to throw on with a maxi skirt or jeans and feel pretty but not overdone. Try it under the chambray shirt buttoned up at the office. Or, with a blazer that is buttoned. It will show off the lace at the bottom. The v-neck is flattering for your shape and is a great balance between dressy and casual. SO cute with your new booties or the bright blue flats.
