After the success of the Milly for Kohls collab, I went into my local store to check out the new Thakoon collection, but it ended up not being my style. My store had a limited selection, so I'll be checking it out online to see if I want anything. But I didn't come home empty handed. I ended trying pieces from Lauren Conrad's new Runway Limited Edition Collection and it's AMAZING! The prints, the cuts, everything is gorgeous. I wanted to share my thoughts on what I tried on today and I will be back to try on some of the others (and grab a few more pieces!) Excuse the quality of the photos!
Floral Scuba Skirt
I'm a sucker for floral prints, but what caught my eye was the beautiful shape of this skirt. I have the Whisper Pink print on in the photo, but Green Gables was also stunning in person and is the perfect fall floral. I don't own anything in that green, so I definitely want that skirt. I think I may "need" all the prints this skirt comes in!
Lace Trim Blouse
I'm really loving the high necklines that aren't turtlenecks, so this caught my eye. I loved the lace trim details as well. But aside from being see-through, this blouse seemed to run a bit small; the arms felt tight on me. I really love how beautiful these two pieces look together, so I would consider sizing up, and finding a matching cami.
Right now, I'm loving critter prints. I can't get enough of them. And when I saw this adorable fox printed tank, I had to try it on. The colors give it a vintage look, and this tank can be worn casually or dressed up for work. This does come with a few buttons up top, so be warned if you suffer from the dreaded boob-gap problem! I had a slight issue, but not enough to prevent me from buying this or sizing up. It's a flattering fit and also comes in 2 other options, a floral print and a pretty green!
The leather/pleather look doesn't seem to be going anywhere, which is great because I found these leggings just in time for the cooler weather. My body type doesn't work for those structured leather pants, but I do like the look of them. These leggings are stretchy and so comfy, but are definitely dressier than any other leggings I own. I brought these home today in blue (there's also black and olive) and will be pairing with the tank above once I get that!
I believe both of these pieces are from a fall collection, not Runway, but I couldn't resist trying them on.
Bow Scoopneck Sweater
And lastly I tried on this sweater with the bow appliqués. There is also a bow that you tie in the back. Really pretty details all around, as Lauren Conrad always does. Again, it comes in three color options (I'm noticing a pattern here) and all of the options are light hues. Unfortunately I'm looking for some color for the fall. As much as I love this, there are some other pieces that I'm loving more.
What do you think of Lauren Conrad's new collections? I'm loving everything!
