Sample Subscription Wishlist

May 2016, Double Wishlist

Expressive, Approachable, Cosmopolitan

(Because this is a sample from an actual client, the items may no longer be available for purchase.)

It's time to update your look for warmer weather. This double wishlist is based entirely on your requests. After creating your outfits, we identified additional opportunities in your wardrobe and the items below help you bring your look into spring and summer. Off we go!

These are so ideal for you that I had to kick the list off with them. Ballard boutique re-souL sells an array of high quality shoes that are especially comfortable and hip. These laceless oxfords are from the re-souL line which translates into very high quality shoes made in Italy with local design and a lower price point. More colors are available. Rock these with skirts or pants on the weekends or to worksites. They are functional and fun. 

re-souL Brett II Laceless Oxford. (Available in even more colors!). re-souL. $148.

You look amazing in jackets with a great fit. We want to give you more options for warmer weather. This natural moto jacket works well with your colorful palette and is flattering for your frame. It's appropriate for client meetings or the farmer's market, depending on your pairing. It's also a nice way to layer over print dresses while still drawing the eye up, maximizing your assets. 

Linen Blend Moto Jacket. Ann Taylor. $169.

It's time to refresh your blouses. This high low option is flattering, comfortable and can be worn out or tucked into a high waist skirt or pants. Use it throughout the year and to virtually any occasion depending on styling. I love it with any of your wide leg pants and a heel or oxfords. The neckline is also an appealing canvass for a bold multi-strand necklace. And, it's orange!

Crepe Hi Lo V-Neck Shell. Available in multiple colors and in tall. Ann Taylor. $49-59. (Additional 40% off at checkout.)

We have been on the hunt for the ideal white pant for you, and these should seal the deal. A dressier pant, these flowy culottes have a high waist that is oh so flattering. Feel free to pair them with the high low top above and leave the top untucked or tuck it in, depending on your comfort level. Toss the linen jacket over top and add a wedge. These will look equally stunning with wedges or any of your collection of heels or dressy sandals. Of course, a high heel will make you look and feel more streamlined. But, either work. They can also be paired with the laceless oxfords and one of your Breton tops. 

Tie Waist Cropped Wide Leg Pants. Available in two colors and in tall. Ann Taylor. $98.

Ask and you shall receive! Welcome to a collection of wristlets with cross body straps available in colors you love at an affordable pricepoint. Plus, they are just the right size for your phone, kleenex, lip gloss and keys. Drop them in a larger tote for workdays when you are carrying multiple items.

You love bold multi-strand necklaces. But, you don't love trying to determine what earrings to pair with them. Enter these double circle jacket earrings from 14th & Union. More than a simple stud, but less than a statement earring, these are just right with the colorful, bold necklaces you love.

This was not a special request, but was too good to pass up. I love this Mac from Boden. It's water resistant, as opposed to an REI waterproof rain jacket. However, it's functional and stylish. You've been loving your Breton tees and this is an effortless way to bring the same concept into your outerwear. The black and white stripe works with virtually all of your pants and skirts. Plus, this is a playful way to keep your personality showing through your clothing regardless of the weather. 

The Mac. Available in multiple prints and colors. Boden. $198.

The bright orange draped jacket wasn't a win, but this draped black option is similar in cut and equally functional. A more sophisticated approach, this effortless layering piece works with your collection and can be dressed up or down, depending on occasion. Yes, we want the focus of your outfit to be up top. So, remember to layer a fun top underneath or wear with a daring necklace. However, the cut is especially flattering, minimizing your hips and backside and giving you more freedom with your white pants, for instance. This length makes pairing with bold shoes easier and more flattering.

Cowl necks are timeless, flattering and sophisticated. This color blue works well for you and coordinates easily with your collection. Dress this down with shorts and metallic sandals or dress it up with the white culottes on this list. It's best with statement earrings and a bracelet or your watch.

The trouser jean has really been working for you, but your current pair isn't holding up over time. Enter NYDJ. I've had an array of clients find success with this brand. A higher rise, flattering leg line and higher quality fabric, these can be worn to the office or on the weekends.

I'm obsessed with these shoes. They are an added bonus just in case the heel is a bit too high. They are an eye catching neutral option that is flattering for your figure and elevates the most basic of outfits. Whether you show them off with cropped pants like the white culottes on this list or reveal them when you sit as when pairing with the trouser jeans, they are sexy without being over the top. And, you'll be shocked how many pieces they work with.

Another stretch piece, this fearless graphic print dress is incredibly flattering. The v-neck and wide sleeves balance out your shape and the belt shows off the smallest part of your body. I can see you in this on vacation or at a wedding. Layer one of your leather jackets over top for a harder approach and add the heels above. Or, try it with simple sandals or wedges sans jacket. You may enjoy poking around on the JIBRI site for a little inspiration.

Humble Chic is a dream for you. An assortment of multi-strand necklaces in an array of colors await you on the site. Plus, they are all affordable. I vote for these with any of your Breton tees and trouser jeans or the white culottes on the list and heels. Alternatively, try them over one of your print blouses with a fun jacket and your navy or black pants or use them to pull colors from your tops or dresses. The options are virtually endless.

Multi-strand necklaces really work for you. So, let's make sure you have what you need. For the days you'd rather pass on color, try either of these metallic options. You're a fan of silver over traditional gold and these two necklaces are interesting with unexpected elements.

Yes, it can be challenging to find the right earrings to work with adventurous necklaces. Here are two more suggestions that allow you to go beyond traditional studs. Ear Crawlers are earrings that look like they are moving up the ear or give the impression that you have multiple piercings. With your short haircut, ear crawlers are a fun way to add visual interest without rocking a large earring. The curved bar studs shown below are another unexpected choice that is still minimal, allowing you to pair with a decidedly maximal necklace.

14th & Union Triple Ball Pave Ear Crawlers. Nordstrom Rack. $14.

In the event that you'd like another option for a new handbag, this pebbled leather wristlet is sophisticated, functional and interesting. Plus, blue works well with your wardrobe and is a nice middle ground between the excitement of orange and the neutral nature of brown. You'll be surprised how easy it is to match.

Last but not least, I love this unusual print top for you. The shape is flattering and the pattern reminds me of you. Dress it up or down, depending on the pairing. If you'd like more blouses. the collection at Ann Taylor has an abundance of tops that would look beautiful on you. It just depends on your area of interest. I chose this blouse from Eloquii because I can see you reaching for it repeatedly and being excited every time.
