Well it looks like the days are finally getting longer and the weather is getting warmer, which is perfect because this week we are talking about some great summer pieces that will be perfect additions to your summer wardrobe. Everything from cute summer tops, to rompers and playsuits, to simple basics, so whatever your style is, we definitely have something for everyone.
Let’s kick things off with a few new arrivals from Gentle Fawn, starting with the “Tercet Top”-$79. Ok you guys!!! This style of top has to be my favourite at the moment, and clearly I can’t get enough because my closet is telling me enough is enough lol. I just find the fit and style of this top so feminine and figure flattering, especially when paired with anything high rise! This short sleeve blouse features front tie detail, a slightly cropped fit, and is a linen/rayon blend, making it perfect for those hot summer days. I also forgot to mention that this top is available in two different colour ways, grey and white stripe, and a beautiful mauve solid colour.
Speaking of mauve, Gentle Fawn also created the most adorable romper in the same colour and fabric as the “Tercet Top”. The “Laverne Romper” features dainty adjustable straps, a front button closure, and retails for just $99. I think this playsuit would look awesome paired with your fav Birkenstocks and a light wash denim jacket, but if you are more of a girly girl, then toss on a pair of wedge heels and some E&E beads to complete the look.
The last new arrival we featured from Gentle Fawn was the “Amari Tank”, which is a delicate off white silky tank that is the most perfect layering piece, but is also stunning on its own. I feel like this is something that every woman could use in both their professional and their going out wardrobe. I just love all the delicate details on this piece, and not to mention, it also has adjustable straps to provide the best fit to each individual body shape. The “Amari Tank” is available both in store and online and retails for $79.
Oh Jackson Rowe… you always outdo yourself when it comes to basic pieces! Not only do they have the most comfortable, easy to care for, and great for layering pieces, but they are also super flattering and stylish at the same time. This week we featured three new items that are basically going to fall into the category of “wearing on repeat” because they are just so dang comfortable. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love getting dressed up and most days I do, but I am a real sucker these days for comfortable clothes. It must have something to do with getting older and more practical, because honestly who really wants to be uncomfortable ALL DAY, when now you can find super stylish pieces that are also comfortable!!! Sign me up…PLEASE!
The new “Shortie Overalls” retail for $80 and are available in black and rust. If you haven’t noticed overalls, rompers, and jumpsuits have really made a comeback over the last few years, and it looks like they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, so you may as well jump on board the comfortable train. These overalls have adjustable straps and the fit flatters your curves without being skin tight. We paired the overalls with the Jackson Rowe “Henley Bodysuit”, which we are currently almost sold out of, but we will be restocking in ALL sizes soon!! Stay tuned for the restock, because these are SOOO popular so they will probably sell out again quickly.
If you are into the whole overall look, but you prefer something a little longer that has a little more coverage, then the new “Overall Midi Dress” may be right up your alley. This dress has the same feel and fit as the “Shortie Overalls”, but in a dress version and retails for $110.
The other super comfortable piece we received, which is my personal favourite is the “Henley Playsuit”. I was actually pleasantly surprised when I tried this one on, because let me be the first to say that this item has zero hanger appeal. You know those items that you wouldn’t even look twice at??? Yah, that was this item for me, so that just goes to show that you can’t really judge an item without trying it on first, because that is when the magic happens! Also, I thought this playsuit was going to be extremely short (and no I do not want my butt cheeks hanging out the bottom of any item in my wardrobe, unless that piece is a bathing suit), BUT once it’s on, it is actually the perfect length. So what I am saying here is that the “Henley Playsuit” is super cute, super comfortable, and is a no brainer when building your summer wardrobe!!
The last two items we featured on this week’s picks were the “Tri Blend Racer Tank”-$46 and the “Airy Slub Slit Tunic”-$60 from Z Supply! Talk about the perfect light weight, easy to wear pieces just in time for warmer weather. Just like Jackson Rowe, Z Supply is always a great go to brand when it comes to those basic pieces that everyone needs in order to complete their wardrobe. I have said this before, but often times, those are the things we don’t realize we are missing, and having some great basics can really help to pull your outfits in your closet together!
The “Tri Blend Racer Tank” is available in 3 different colours (white, mauve, and grey), and features a high neck, as well as, distressing on the neck, arm, and bottom hem giving it that “worn in” kind of look. These tanks are great with a pair of cut off shorts, or dress them up with a leather jacket, and white denim for a more edgy look!
I have to say I think I left my favourite basic for last! The “Airy Slub Slit Tunic” is just so effortless and easy to wear and is available in the colour haze, and blue. The short sleeve shirt features a crew neckline, twisted sleeve, hi-lo hem with a scoop back, and long side slits. If you are looking for something that would be great to wear year round, then this is your item, because it will look great paired with shorts in the summer, and leggings or denim in the winter!
***Don’t forget that all of these items are available both in store and online***
