Hello and Happy Saturday! I received a delivery from Trunk Club last week so I’m sharing my unboxing today. For those who aren’t familiar, Trunk Club is Nordstrom’s personal styling service, and I love seeing what my stylist picks out for me. I am not working with Trunk Club, but I do share my referral link if you want to try it out. If you decide to try it, you’ll get a referral link to share with your friends too!
I really liked this trunk. I kept 3 pieces and I sent a few things back that I kind of wanted to keep. Contrary to how it may appear, I do not have unlimited budget and closet space (ha!) so I had to make some tough decisions.
Let’s start out with one of the winners.
This Gibson cold shoulder top was a pleasant surprise in this trunk. It’s a lot cuter on a person that it is on the hanger, and I think it would make a fun top for a GNO or date night with your honey. It also comes in navy, red, and ivory.
I love the flirty tie sleeves and trendy shoulder cut-outs. The longer length is fun for a change, and the side slit details are a nice touch. I should have thrown on a necklace with it to give you the full effect. Since it is so long, I tried the front tuck, but I think I like it better left out.
I debated heavily before deciding to return this top. I have a lot of date night/girls night out tops, and I don’t think I’d get enough wear out of this. If I had an event on the horizon, I’d definitely hold onto it, but everything I have going on this summer so far is super casual.
Sizes are getting depleted so if you want one, I’d suggest grabbing it sooner rather than later. For size reference, this is a medium.
These black block heel sandals also came in my trunk. These are super comfortable and I think the woven leather detail is really cool. Unfortunately, she sent a size 8 and I think I need a 7.5. Sandals can be weird like that. I wear an 8.5 in boots, for reference.
While I like these, I don’t think I’d wear them a ton so I sent them back. I do recommend them, though, if you’re looking for a chunky black sandal this summer. They also come in latte and white. The latte are GORG… If I didn’t have so many nude shoes already I’d order those in a heartbeat.
I think one of the biggest surprises in this box was this Madewell embroidered peekaboo top.
I thought it would be way too sheer and boxy, plus it’s kind of cutesy for my taste, but when I put it on, I really liked it. The neckline is flattering and it has a nice shape to the body even though it’s not fitted. For size reference, this is a medium.
It obviously could use an iron (lol) but I can see myself getting quite a lot of wear out of this. It’s as cute paired with shorts as it is with jeans.
Speaking of shorts, I’ve been vetting a lot of shorts recently to have some current styles I can recommend to you guys so I asked my stylist to send me a few options in this trunk. I think you can tell from the look on my face that I did NOT love these. LOL!!!
These are the classic Levi’s Cutoff Shorts and they’re also a size 6. I like the wash and the idea of them, but they are too tight plus they’re just too short for my comfort level with a 2″ inseam. (They’re also cut kind of high in the back of the leg.)
They definitely fit looser on the model on the website and I like the laid-back vibe so if I were 10 years younger, I’d probably ask to try these in the 8, but I’m almost 45 and I think a 2″ inseam is pushing it. (Yes, I realize that some of you think my 4″ inseams are pushing it, lol!) I’m good with 3.5 to 4, but a girl’s gotta draw the line somewhere, and I think 3.5 is it for me right now.)
These dark wash cutoff denim shorts from BLANKNY fit well and are comfortable, but I don’t love that ultra dark wash. They have an nice high 12″ rise for those who are interested in that. These are the 28 so they run true to size.
These Kut from the Kloth Gidget Shorts were an immediate YES. I tried them on and loved the fit so I decided to keep them. I wore them all day and they didn’t bag out. SCORE!!!
These have a 4″ inseam and a 22.5″ leg opening, which I’ve learned is about perfect for me. If you like longer shorts, check out the Kut from the Kloth Catherine style.
These silky jogger shorts are kind of fun, but not really my style. They remind me too much of pajamas.
Remember when I did my 2017 Spring Fashion Forecast back in January and we all scratched our heads over The Robe (see #10)? Well, look what I found in my trunk!
This Madewell Robe Jacket got mixed feedback on my Insta Story when I did my unboxing over there, but I think it could be a fun work wear piece for someone who gets cold indoors and wants an alternative to cardigans and blazers. The material is a little bit heavier than I would prefer, but it’s kind of a cool print. I like that the floral is different from so much of what we’re seeing right now. (Have you noticed how all the florals in the stores look alike?) For size reference, this is the medium, although I think I could take a small.
This top is cute, but the neckline is kind of high for my liking. The material is also a little bit scratchy, truth be told. That said, I think it could be cute for work wear as long as the sleeves wouldn’t annoy you. This is the medium, for reference.
Some of you may remember these shoes from my last trunk. They were too big, so my stylist hunted down my size and sent them in this trunk. It pains me to tell you that I sent them back. They are sooo cute and I love them for their style and comfort (I already have them in white, blue, and black) but I just don’t see myself wearing these very much… maybe if they were on sale, but not at $129.
These blue suede sandals, however, are keepers. I’ve been trying to add some color to my shoe wardrobe since I have soooo many neutrals, and these are the perfect pop against white jeans. They will look great with tops in the pink/orange/yellow families as well as neutrals and even some shades of blue and green. Best of all, these are on sale 33% off! (FYI, I wouldn’t roll my jeans with these, but I wanted you to see the ankle strap.)
I already have these in the oatmeal color so I can vouch for how comfortable they are. The suede under the toes is so soft and cozy, the chunky heel provides plenty of stability, and the ankle strap keeps them on my feet so I don’t have to worry about stepping out of them like I do with pumps.
I can’t wait to wear these — I’ll probably find a way to incorporate them into my church outfit this Sunday.
Well, that’s a wrap! I got so many goodies in this box, I could have definitely kept more than I did. I think the key with a service like Trunk Club is to stick with it for a few tries until your stylist starts to get the hang of your style and what looks good on you. My trunks keep getting better and better.
