When I found out I’d be representing Lands’ End at BlogHer, I was told to go pick out a couple of outfits to wear on Saturday while I get to play Style Agent in the Secret Style Suite! (Try saying that five times fast.)
Lands’ End is the first place I go for a flattering yet modest bathing suit and when it’s time to shop for my kids’ school backpacks and lunch boxes, but I will admit that it’s not necessarily the first place I go for women’s fashion. I perused the site for a while and soon discovered the newly opened Lands’ End Canvas line — a bit more trendy and casual than their usual offerings. I immediately honed in on this outfit.
Yes… another black tank. I’m nothing if not predictable! But I love it with the boyfriend chinos and wedge sandals — casual chic at its best.
I eventually decided to drive down to Sears and try some of their clothes on in person because I had no idea what sizes to order or how their clothes would fit me. I’m glad I did because I spotted these bootcut jeans. They are SO much cuter in person than they are online. I tried them on and was pleasantly surprised with their fit and promptly added them to my wish list.
I came back home and sent some ideas to Lands’ End, and here’s what they sent me.
As well as the ruffle top from above and another navy blue button henley to try AND this adorable coral melon paisley scarf, which I suggested as a way to add color and style to my rather neutral clothing choices.
When my box arrived, I ran upstairs to give my new duds a test drive. The navy top would be adorable if I didn’t have bobs (not a typo; trying not to attract the pervs). So that one’s out.
The two white tops were both cute. I’m not sure which one I’ll end up wearing. This one needs the ruffles to be more ruffled up or something. It doesn’t look like the picture online (the taupe one above).
But this one’s cute too. Both are fairly thin and soft and very, very comfy.
The black tank is… a black tank. But I like the cut and I can dress it up with jewelry.
I really like both pairs of jeans. Somehow I didn’t get a full length photo of the white, but here are the blue jeans. They are on a super duper sale — $17.99. These are Light Vintage Indigo — great for casual wear.
My goal? To come up with 2 outfits — one for day and one for night — and Jo-Lynne them up with shoes and accessories. Here’s what I’m thinking:
DAYTIME: White ruffle tank, bootcut jeans, coral paisley scarf, Lucky Brand earrings and gold bangle, Stuart Weitzman tobacco wedge sandals. (I know – heels to BlogHer is a no-no but the Style Suite is in my hotel which cuts down on walking and these are so comfy you wouldn’t believe it.)
(Kindly ignore my distracting bedspread.)
NIGHTTIME: black tank, white skinny jeans, comfy black glittery wedge flips, Stella & Dot chandelier earrings and coordinating necklace with my favorite silver bracelet.
How did I do? (I’m certainly open to suggestions on how to wear that scarf.)
