Trunk Club #4 Review – Part 1

Happy Monday!

I’m here to share with you a fun Trunk Club trunk I received over the weekend! I hadn’t received one in a while so thought it would be fun to see what sort of fun Fall fun would arrive in this big box! Just in time to score some new pretties for our upcoming kid-free vacation to San Francisco – which is what I asked for clothes for! trunk

And if you want to get caught up, check out my previous Trunk Club posts:

my first Trunk  / Second Trunk Club  / Third Trunk {before our trip to Mexico!}

And if you are interested in signing up for  Trunk Club yourself – please use my referral link and let me know what you think! Trunk Club is a part of Nordstrom, so you get amazing customer service and great quality brands you know and love. It’s $25 to get a trunk full of goodies and you can use that $25 towards anything you want to keep – so it’s pretty much free in my eyes! When you sign up for a trunk you get a stylist and you tell her what you are looking for – you are then sent a preview of what is going to be sent your way, which you can accept, remove and comment on what you like and don’t like so your trunk gets personalized towards you, before being sent your way! I love the little sneak peek, but seriously, who doesn’t love a giant box of clothing arriving at your front door?!

Side Note : For this trunk I am splitting it up in 2 posts – part 1 today and part 2 tomorrow! I received 10 items total in this trunk and split up 5 and 5 in each post to show some different ways to wear the items + there were WAY too many pictures to put in one post, so stay tuned for the rest of what’s in this trunk tomorrow.

   ******************* 

First up is this Pleat Jersey Midi Skirt  – which comes in 2 colors. jersey

How I Styled This Look:  top / 2 in 1 Harper necklace / Alila Lace Cuff / shoes

I am actually on the hunt for more skirts in my life. I think they are awesome for all seasons. This skirt I was surprised about when I pulled it out of the box. I definitely don’t have anything like this in my closet. The material is really different, along with the pleats its a stand out skirt for sure.

I wanted to try to dress this look up and down a bit and I think just a touch of good accessories really did that. A fun statement necklace up top for a night out, and a great scarf + jean jacket combo to make it a little easier to wear during the day.

How I Styled This Look:  top / Reversible Infinity Scarf denim jacket {similar} / shoes

I really love the color of this skirt – it’s even more beautiful in person, more of a purple, grey-blue situation. Simply gorgeous.

Thoughts on the midi pleated skirt trend? Are you a fan?

Next up is the Wildest Dreams Slipdress – it comes in 3 different color patterns. Ok, so about this look – I think it’s a little more spring than fall, it’s very light material, so you really need to layer it up a bit. But it’s 80* today here in Philly so what do I know about the seasons? Ha. purple-dress

This ‘dress’ is a difficult length for me. It’s on the cusp of being too short, but I paired them with a pair of over the knee boots {more on them below} that I also received in this trunk and I think it really works and makes the length a little less of an issue. Would also be easy to wear tights or leggings with as well.

Fun Fact: I also am wearing this dress backwards {on purpose} because is has this large slit in the “front” and I wasn’t really sure to do in terms of a bra that you wouldn’t be able to see everything {because you could, no matter what I tried} But I think the opening in the back really works and you can’t tell – maybe it’s reversible? Ha.

Paired with a denim jacket and I think it makes it a very sweet look for Fall. Maybe throw on a burgundy scarf and you are good to go pumpkin picking!

Overall, I think this is a cute dress, but not really sure it’s functional for me – see the slit down the middle in the photo below? Anyone have styling tips for that? Would love to hear what you would do!

Third out of the Trunk is this Marilyn Sweater  – it also comes in a gorgeous grey. This is warm, cozy and screams Fall to me – I love the subtle, off the shoulder but not – look. This is just an easy autumnal look you can wear straight into winter.

sweater-boots

I really love how this sweater feels – it’s a chenille blend and feels so soft and amazing. Sort of like a sweatshirt, but not. Way better than a sweatshirt, but not. Ha. I clearly can’t describe it, but I like it! Paired with the gorgeous 3 in 1 Genevieve necklace and you are ready to go!

Because the colors went together, I also tried it on with the slip dress for a different look. I thought it was pretty cute and unexpected – what do you think? Would you wear it?

Here’s a up-close picture of the sweater, so you can see the light blue + grey speckles. Don’t you just want to cozy up in this thing right now?!

******************* 

Fourth piece from this Trunk is the Brentwood Cotton Cardigan – it comes in 2 colors. This piece was immediately a little overwhelming for me. It’s a LOT of material, possibly too much. It’s defiantly oversized and meant to be that way, I think you really have to style it right for it to work.

jacket-dress

I tried it on over the slip dress again and I think it gives it a cool look – they are both the Free People brand, which is why I tried them on together. Even with leggings or skinny jeans, this thing is very large.

free-people-jacketjacket

I think these pictures make it look cooler than it actually is. I didn’t really feel good wearing it – I felt a little disheveled, not put together, so I don’t think this is a win for me. Maybe if I sized down it might work better. But I have similar pieces in my closet that fit me better.

Do you like the oversized jacket look?

******************* 

The fifth piece out of part 1 of this Trunk reveal are the Canton Over the Knee Boot  – they come in 5 colors and I sort of want them all. I have another pair of OTN boots that I’m obsessed with, but they are a little higher heel. These from Trunk Club are a completely different color and shorter heel, making me feel like I would wear them more for everyday. I’m also thinking they might be perfect for our trip to San Francisco, since – as you’ve seen here – I can wear them with jeans, dresses, whatever. I think I’m in love.

Are you into the Over the Knee look this season?boots

Ok, so that’s part 1 of my Trunk Club reveal for this trunk. Like I said, they send you so many items and I take so many pictures, it would be a MASSIVE post if I put it all in one! So stay tuned to see what else I got in my latest Trunk!

Here’s a little sneak peek:

    Love the sweater and the over the knee boots from this post. Both look great with jeans. You always look so cute and put together!! I love your style. With that being said, I am not a fan of the skirt, dress or jacket. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your trunk!!

    I think the boots and sweater look great on you! Have to say no to the skirt, dress and sweater jacket – not flattering pieces for you.
