Love & Legend by Addition Elle | Wide Leg Released Hem JeansA striking update to daytime denim, Love & Legend by Addition Elle’s wide leg jeans feature a raw-edge cuff and relaxed fit.

I loved the retro and boho vibes these jeans were giving me. To keep that feel going, I paired these with a cropped peasant top and wedge espadrilles. The look was topped off with a neutral bead and rope long necklace. While these were super comfy (seriously, I could’ve slept in these), I think they were meant for someone with slightly longer legs. I’m 5’7″, but I have shorter legs and these didn’t look as good as on the model. Plus, I tripped on the legs a few times trying to walk up the stairs in my house. Maybe I’m out of practice… the last time I wore pants this wide, I was in college (anyone else remembers wearing JNCOs???).

Plenty by Tracy Reese | Utility Jacket in DenimBreathe utilitarian cool into your day-off mix with this denim jacket from Plenty by Tracy Reese. A casual option with endless style options, we love how the multiple pockets add a sartorial edge.

GB Exclusive: This unique design is only available to the Gwynnie Bee community.

I absolutely LOVED this jacket. It has a slight amount of stretch, which I feel gives it a more comfortable fit. The jacket is also a lighter weight denim and can be worn throughout the year. Yes, it’s a casual piece, but it can be smartened up. I paired this with a patterned cami, maxi skirt, and sneakers for a day of running errands. I’m regretting that I didn’t buy this, but I just didn’t want to part with $68.

Jessica Howard | Cold Shoulder Mock Neck Sweater Dress: A cable knit sweater dress is the most indulgent choice this season, and Jessica Howard ups the look with trendy cold shoulder cutouts.

So normally, I’m not a big fan of the cold shoulder trend or knit dresses, but I decided to add this to my closet anyway. I’m so glad I did. I got a lot of compliments on this look. I was most surprised that the dress didn’t lose its shape as the day wore on (this picture was taken AFTER a full day at work). The model is wearing this with booties, which I would have done if the weather had been cooperative. It was chilly the day I took the picture, so I’m wearing tights and knee boots.

I love that Gwynnie Bee gives me the chance to try out pieces without any guilt. It’s like having an amazing closet full of your size with unlimited possibilities. I can wear the pieces as much as I want, and I don’t have to do laundry (because they clean the items when I return them). Plus, if I love something, there’s the option to buy it. And, if I absolutely hate something, I can send it back – no sales associates to deal with or receipts to find. Can’t wait to see what comes in my next box!
