Thanks to a very productive shopping excursion, my goal for this extended wish list (2 months worth of wish lists combined into one especially for you!) will focus on filling in the gaps in your wardrobe after our trip. Enjoy! Also, if you decide to purchase any items, please begin by clicking on this page as it may result in a commission for Poplin. Thank you!
Let the bold, bright colors shine! Orange is an option, too. Yes! You can wear these with your tank tops and a basic shoe. Then, rock a bold necklace like the green one you just purchased. Alternatively, try your yellow wedge heels, these pants and a plain white v-neck t-shirt and a denim jacket. For styling you want 2-3 pops of color balanced with neutrals. A yellow shirt and a neutral shoe. Or a neutral shirt and a bold handbag. These pants can also show off a fun belt which highlights your waist and is flattering for your figure. These are also available in black and navy as I know you are interested in a dark pair of pants. If you'd like something a little baggier, go with the boyfriend cords.
Highlight your waist, control your curves, go! This dress is so lovely for you because it is a canvas for all your bold accessories without being a neutral. I know it's a print. Don't be afraid. Pair it with orange, yellow, red or green shoes and another colored handbag. Or, wear a neutral shoe with a bright colored belt and/or scarf. In the fall and winter, pair it with your knee high brown boots and add a sweater over top. A cardigan, crew neck or V-neck work. Alternatively, you can wear your grey ankle boots and add a colorful cardigan or belt. Dress it up or down depending on your activity.
FYI- These also come in yellow:) We discussed wedges quite a bit and I think we both had open toed wedges in mind. However, once I started to ruminate on this one, I decided that a closed toe wedge would be easier for you to style all year long. You'll certainly see more open toed wedges as the sun comes out. This blue/purple is one of your power colors and can easily be paired with all the other colors we've been selecting for you. Try it with your new jeans and a bold handbag. Green is great! These would also be stunning with your new black vegan leather pants and a basic tee. Take if from Obama channeling Cesar Chavez- Yes you can!
And here they are, your summer peep toe wedges. This denim stripe is the supreme neutral shoe. Pair it with bright dresses, goes with any bold handbag. Easy. How about the red pants and a blue or yellow shirt? Yup. These are your solution. When you have multiple colors in your ensemble, these are a nice way to calm things down without being boring and predictable. After all, the flag can't be wrong. Red, white and blue. Indeed.
Belts! Belts! And more belts! The key to maximizing your hourglass figure is to highlight your waist. Colored belts are a great way to do this. They are also a nice way to bring another color to your outfit and a level of tailored sophistication to your look. Shop the fast fashion stores to maximize your dollar. H&M, Forever 21, Target will all give you lots of exciting belt options. This color is flattering for you and this width will easily fit through belt loops on pants, belts and jackets.
It's jersey. And, it comes in a raspberry color that is also spectacular on you. The waist is defined by the elastic, so you can easily rock it without a belt or if you are feeling especially motivated, add one on. An animal print would be fun or use one of your bold colored belts. Add a pair of knee high boots in the winter and a cozy sweater over top. Transition to spring with colored wedge heels or your grey ankle boots. Because you run warm, I think you'll get a great deal of use out of the sleeveless dresses and this one is long enough for you to sit on the floor with the kids. The fabric ensures you'll feel like you are in your pajamas, but look like you are stepping out on the town.
With all this talk about scarves, I'd better show you one. This ombre scarf has an uber practical blue/green combo that will complement an array of outfits. Dress up your jeans, bring some life to a dark skirt or balance your bold shoes. Love!
Green goes with everything! This is a highly functional bag for you as it is small enough to throw into a diaper bag or you can use the cross body strap to carry it hands-free. Because we weren't able to get to Forever 21 together, I wanted to make sure you knew which bag I spotted for you there. Coordinates beautifully with your other items.
