Trunk Club Review April 26, 2018 | Good Morning, Friends! Remember a few weeks back when I introduced you to Trunk Club and I said that it was just the beginning of a year long partnership here on the blog? Well, today’s post is a follow up that I think you’ll love! If you need a refresher…Trunk Club is a Nordstrom company (read more HERE) and they offer styling services that are completely tailored to YOU! Your virtual stylist chooses styles based on the season, occasion or lifestyle that you specify and curates a “Trunk” of clothing that arrives to your doorstep. You then have a few days to try everything on it your lighting, with your mirror and in the comfort of your home and decide what you’d like to keep. If you want all of the details, they are HERE. Since I wanted to try out quite a few Trunks for you guys, I’m trying to plan and request Trunks that I think you’d like and/or are relevant to your lifestyle based on what I know about you guys here on the blog. First up (and not shocking), I requested a Mom Style Trunk! I explained to my stylist what a day in #momlife looked like, told her what some of the daily activities we did were and also explained what I was most comfortable (and confident) in! I also replied back to her with some of my favorite brands (Madewell, Halogen, etc.) and lastly I told her what price points I was most comfortable with for this Trunk. MY TRUNK CLUB REVIEW My stylist, Bianca, ran with my feedback and sent a total of 12 pieces that she felt were a good fit and I’m going to review my favorites for you below. Just from initially opening the Trunk I was impressed with the brands that she chose and how some of the pieces were ones that were already in my Nordstrom cart! It really is like opening a present on Christmas morning. Here’s a peek at everything in one place… Ok I’m starting this Trunk Club review with my favorite first!! Just like in the last trunk, my favorite piece ended up being something that I almost told her to leave out (you’re sent a preview of your Trunk before it ships and are able to remove pieces if you know that they won’t work or would like to replace them with something else). These BP pants were something that I would have never ordered on my own. I don’t normally like to bring attention to my legs and these felt a little too loud, but when I put them on it was love at first sight! Not only do the vertical stripes elongate the legs, but they also have an elastic waist, and the ruffles at bottom add the cutest feminine details. She also nailed the price with these at $52! I could easily wear them to the park with flip flops but also easily dressed them up like I show below. Another piece that came in the trunk was this ivory funnel neck top. It’s by Free People (which we all love) and is super functional. I can see myself wearing it with jeans, denim shorts, overalls, a skirt or even pants like this. It’s a great price as well and will work overtime for me in my closet. So far we are two for two with things that I’m keeping! Next up is this Madewell top and I think you guys know how this story ends…hint: in my closet! Remember I reviewed a small stripe version of this top styled multiple ways earlier this Spring? I’ve been dying to wear it more on the blog but it’s consistently sold out and I know that’s frustrating. What I didn’t know is that they since came out with this bright white version with a small blue window pane detail. It’s still got the same great fit and this one even has cute bows on the sleeves. It’s such a great top for Summer that’s breezy, cute and super easy to wear multiple ways. This one was a definite winner for me! This terry dress was another piece that I was really unsure of, but definitely loved it way more once I tried it on. I am normally not a fan of horizontal stripes, but oddly enough I found this dress to be more flattering and slimming than most. The fabric is a really lightweight terry cloth that’s soft, comfy and can be worn as a dress or as a swim cover. I kept this one too because I could see myself throwing it on over my suit leaving the pool, still feeling cute and pulled together. This dress was nothing special on the website, but I trusted Bianca and knew that I already loved this brand (Sanctuary), so I decided to try it anyway. Welp, she knew what she was talking about! The shoulder cut outs and bow details make it SO interesting and cute on, but the A line silhouette also makes it forgiving and easy to wear…AKA perfect for Mom Style! I might buy this dang thing in every color! In our messages back and fourth, I told Bianca that I was interested in trying short overalls. I also said that I didn’t want to spend a ton on them and asked her to size up in whichever pair she chose since I really like my overalls to fit a bit looser. She nailed it with these, which I was nearly certain was impossible…especially with something as tricky as overalls. Remember THE JEANS from this past Fall??? These overalls are the same brand (SP Black), so I was impressed right off the bat! She sized up to a M in them and they have the perfect fit…not too long, not too short, not too fitted and overall just easy to wear. You’ll see these in my rotation very soon! Ok so if you’re keeping up, that’s SIX pieces that fit perfectly and were great additions to my Mom Style lineup. That means over HALF of the trunk worked…an even better percentage than last time! Its crazy how quickly Bianca tuned in to what I liked, what fit my body best and what also worked for my lifestyle. Here are a few pieces that didn’t work out and why…. This little romper was great in theory. It’s so soft, really easy to wear and casual + cute, but it was simply too short in the torso for me. She really did nail all of the accessories, but she did so well that I actually already had pieces almost identical to the ones she shipped in my closet. Looking back, it was probably more of my fault and I should have looked closer at the Trunk preview and suggested they be switched out for a few different pieces. Other pieces that I didn’t keep: Cranberry Ruffle Sleeve Top: Eyelet details made it see through and I would have had to wear a cami under it, which isn’t something that I like to do in the Texas Summer heat. Blue Shorts: I couldn’t even bring myself to take a photo in them because the fit was just off, but overall they weren’t really my style anyway. I generally prefer denim or white shorts. Here’s what I DID Keep: Overall, this second Trunk was a huge success in my opinion! I scored some really functional pieces for my everyday routine that I can throw on and still feel cute and confident in. The best part is that I never had to leave my house to get them! A few key highlights about Trunk Club: -You can receive Trunks on your terms! Monthly, Quarterly, as needed or centered around an occasion. -With each Trunk you’re charged a $25 styling fee, but it’s then applied to ANY purchase you make from that Trunk.
