February 2016 - Paint The Town Chic
Enclothe Boutique Cold Shoulder Top c/o | Lauren Conrad Jeans, old | Booties, old | Clutch, old | While Odin Sleeps Necklace

I don't usually have opportunities to dress down, but I couldn't resist wearing this comfy sweatshirt with the prettiest cold shoulder detail from Enclothe Boutique.  I kept the whole look rather casual with the jeans and booties, but I added a statement necklace to dress it up a bit.  This is the perfect brunch outfit because it's cute, very comfy and hides the food belly that may grow ;)  I did size up here, but find it to be slightly bigger than needed-I recommend getting your normal size!

Don't forget about the Enclothe Giftcard Giveaway from yesterday's post (check it out here to enter!)

Earlier this week I blogged about Enclothe Boutique (check out the review here), which I find to be a great way to get amazing clothes at a great price.  Luckily Gabrielle, the owner of Enclothe, is gearing up for a March sale for next Friday which will include new bundle items, and we're sharing some of the choices below! We also have a fun surprise at the end of the post!  But before we get to that, here are some of our favorite items, both current and coming up!

Current Boutique Items:

This funky tunic with a Bohemian vibe is perfect for all year.  Gabrielle's loves it styled with leggings and knee high boots, which is great for this time of year.  And just switch out the boots for your favorite sandals to take it into spring/summer!
Style Tip:  If you choose to add a lace extender, try to find one with a fun hemline to highlight the tunic's handkerchief hem!
Enclothe Boutique Chevron and Stripe Sheath Dress (runs small, so size up!) | Sole Society T-Strap Pumps (comes in nude or black!) | Kate Spade Jensen Bag (also comes in black or nude!) | J Crew Pearl Cluster Earrings

This dress is perfect for those who prefer classic styles or need items for work.  The pretty neckline and the contrasting prints draw attention in a good way.  The chevron print down the sides helps hides bigger hips as well!  Add a blazer and pumps and you're good to go.
Style Tip: Take this sheath from day to night just by switching up the accessories.  Pair with black or nude shoes and bag for work and then switch out with a pop of color for a night out!

Upcoming Boutique Items:
Enclothe Boutique Split Floral Dress (coming in March!) | Chloe+Isabel Crystal Brulee Bracelet | Lace Up SandalsCowboy Boots

Floral prints are popular right now, and this Split Floral Dress is a must have for the spring!  The lace insets add a unique and pretty detail.  The bracelet above compliments the colors of the dress, but a simple gold cuff would also work well!  Keep accessories to a minimum and let the print stand out!
Style Tip:  In terms of jewelry, necklaces are hidden when worn with busy prints.  Pair instead with a simple, chunky bracelet, so that it won't take away from the print yet will stand out!
Enclothe Boutique Blue and White Lace Dress (coming in March) | Cutout Heels | Ivanka Trump Cocktail Clutch (converts into crossbody!) | BaubleBar Tassel Earrings

This beautiful blue combined with the lace make this a great option for spring events that may be a little dressier, such as graduations, baby showers or wedding festivities.  The clutch linked above is great because it can be worn as a clutch or a crossbody!
Style Tip:  Highlight the blue by adding matching accessories like the earrings, shoes or bags!

Hey dolls.  Today I'm excited to share a new collaboration I'm doing with Enclothe Boutique.  I'm a huge fan of clothing subscription boxes and I'm always looking to try the newest one out there.  I recently came across Enclothe on Facebook and of course had to find out more...
What is Enclothe?
Enclothe is a shopping solution to subscription boxes that come with unwanted surprises, all while offering amazing deals.  Enclothe offers Style Bundles that come in 5 price points ($49, $99, $129, $149, and $169) and customers select all of the pieces that come in every style bundle.  Enclothe also has a boutique if you want just one item (but you get the best deals with the bundles!)

What are Style Bundles?
There are 5 options as mentioned above, and each one gives customers the opportunity to build a bundle based on products that are available in various categories.  The more expensive bundles include pricier products (also known as premium and featured items.)  The $149 Style Bundle, one of the more popular options, is the perfect mix, allowing you to select one premium item, one featured item, and four other items!

I was given a $149 bundle and this is what the selection process looks like.  Each level has multiple options to choose from!
How Can You Get Involved in the Buying Process?
This may be one of my favorite parts of Enclothe.  Every month Gabrielle, the owner of Enclothe, posts albums on Facebook for us to vote on.  The items that get the most votes get added to the boutique and the style bundles!  On these posts we find out more about fit, materials, etc and Gabrielle is so responsive to questions.  You can join the group here and don't forget to vote because the March items are so cute!
So, onto the goods...
One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six

I love that I can have different sizes in the same bundle.  That makes a huge difference to me because some brands run big or small and I don't want to worry about something not fitting.  I also absolutely love the packaging and the note.  This is my third package from Gabrielle and they all arrived looking so cute; the little touches make me appreciate Enclothe that much more.  And of course I am in love with all of the pieces in the bundle.  I'm definitely ready for spring with all of these pretty pastels and prints.

Why Choose Enclothe?
  • Unique Clothes at Amazing Deals!  (My $149 bundle had a total value of $249+)  
  • No fear of receiving unwanted surprises!
  • Can mix and match sizes in your bundle!
  • Ability to help select boutique and bundle items!
  • Amazing customer service!
Gabrielle picks really unique and quality pieces for Enclothe and I love seeing what's new each month.  I highly recommend checking out this clothing service!  If you're making a purchase for the first time, feel free to use my referral link for free shipping!

Since this post was mainly an introduction to Enclothe and how it works, I will be styling these pieces on the blog over the next few weeks!  You can check out some of my older Enclothe items styled here, here, and here!  In the meantime, if you have any fit or style questions on any of my February pieces, or questions about Enclothe in general, feel free to comment below!

*I received a $149 bundle to review in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions shared above are my own!
Golden Tote Floral Blouse (currently not available, but check back for possible returns!) | H&M Crepe Blazer (got pink version in store) | Jeans, old | Booties, old | Lauren Conrad Tassel Necklace, old

The print on this blouse is one of the most beautiful floral prints I've seen in a while.  No wonder as it sold out twice on Golden Tote.  The third time it came around, I couldn't miss out and bought a February tote.  I sized up 2 sizes to ensure the proper fit (the brand Potter's Pot tends to run small in my opinion.)  This is slightly large but not enough to stop me from wearing it!  From the pretty flutter sleeves and the flower button detail, this is one of my favorite tops for the spring and will be getting a lot of use. 

I tucked the blouse in which I don't typically do, and I loved how it looked.  This blouse will look great with skirts and work pants as well.  Pairing the blazer added a new dimension to the outfit.  The pink is perfect for spring, and the lightweight material is so comfortable!  I love it so much that I also have it in olive (see the look here) and will probably get a few other colors as well.  

Head over to Instagram for a peek at my other items from the February Tote!

Between the gloomy weather and the long nights for work, it's great to finally have a new blog post to share.  I recently stopped by H&M and tried on some new pieces that will be perfect for spring!  Some of these pieces are not found online, but you should be able to get them in stores!  Sorry for the quality of photos, but hopefully the reviews will be helpful and give you some new spring styling ideas!
Floral Midi Dress
There are so many great things about this dress.  Floral prints are really hot right now, and this is definitely on trend.  The full sleeves make it a great transition dress that can be worn into the spring.  Midi length is also very elegant, but can be hit or miss depending on height.  I was worried about this being too long, but I really liked the length on me; it hit mid-calf which is just where you want the midi to end!  The material is also very comfy and flattering.  I sized up because I am curvy and I didn't want it to be tight.  This was my favorite piece and one that I'm considering going back for!
Lizard Blouse (couldn't find online)
One of my favorite types of prints involve critter.  I couldn't resist trying on this full sleeved blouse with the cutest lizard print.  I loved the sleeves and the slits at the sides, which helps a shirt sit properly on the hips.  At less than $10, it was a steal, but I found the fit to be a little strange.  The blouse is also sheer, which I don't like.  I had to size up 2 sizes so I wouldn't feel constricted.  This is one item that looks cuter on the hanger than worn.  I recommend a try on before buying to ensure a proper fit.
Mock Neck Dancer Blouse (couldn't find online)
Now this is something that I really wanted to like.  I'm loving mock neck items (which is crazy because I used to hate anything covering my neck!)  I was drawn to the print; the dancers are just so adorable but the brown color is not flattering.  Also, this has a bit of a cropped fit, but the material isn't flattering and the shirt rides up with any arm movement.  I had to size up 2 sizes so I wouldn't feel constricted.
Lace Two Piece (skirt here on sale!)
I'm loving the look of two pieces, but never thought I could pull it off.  But then I came across this adorable set and I had to try it on just for fun.  The lace is beautiful and the cut is made for a more mature audience.  I found this in the professional section, but couldn't see myself wearing the set to work.  The best part is that they look cute together, or can be mixed and matched with other pieces!  I'm trying to figure out an event to wear this to to justify getting this!  I sized up one size in both pieces, again due to curves!  This is definitely worth checking out.

H&M carries a trendier selection of items and these pieces are right in line for spring.  Florals, whimsical prints, midi lengths, and two pieces are are great choices for the new season and are some of my picks for a chic and fashionable spring!

Lilly Pulitzer Elsa Blouse in Leaves in the Breeze (print not available anymore, but here is the current collection) | Enclothe Boutique Vest | Jeans, old | Dolce Vita Booties, old | Necklace, old

Lately I've gotten into these Elsa blouses, which are a popular staple for Lilly lovers.  This hot pink number is my new favorite, and I grabbed it during the January sale.  I've added a few new prints to my collection including this one, and I've been looking for different ways to wear them.  I'm loving them with jeans as seen here, but I also recommend white denim, dress pants, or pencil skirts depending on the occasion!  I added the white vest to break up the print while also adding a little warmth during this cold spell.  I can't wait for spring.

These blouses are so versatile and if you're looking to try out a Lilly piece, I definitely recommend them.  I find them to be true to size (wearing a small here), but I also like the fit of the medium as it's slightly roomier in the hips.

Sundays are my favorite because I always try to take time to do some pampering!  I've always been curious about teeth whitening strips.  I'm already a fan of whitening mouthwash and toothpaste, so this has always been the missing step in my routine.  That changed when I had the chance to try out Doll White!

I received a 7 day supply to test!  It was easy enough to use, though it did take a little practice to mold the strips to my teeth perfectly.  It was a little uncomfortable on, but not enough that I wouldn't use it again.  I had to keep it on for 30 minutes.  The box says that it is a mint flavor, but I didn't taste much mint.  There was no bad aftertaste though.  The best part about this treatment is it's peroxide free, meaning that is gentle and perfect for those with sensitive teeth!  I noticed results even after the first use, though it works best with consistent use.  I think at least a 14 day supply is recommended

Personally I'm not sure if I could keep up with teeth whitening strips in my daily routine, but that's a personal preference.  However, I liked the results I saw from Doll White and would recommend it to anyone looking for a gentle and effective teeth whitening treatment!
