What I Wore: Fruit and Flowers

What I Wore: Fruit and Flowers What I Wore: Fruit and Flowers What I Wore: Fruit and Flowers What I Wore: Fruit and FlowersDress: CityChic via Gwynnie Bee (XS) | Jacket: c/o Ellos (16) | Shoes: Naturalizer | Earrings: Baublebar | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Lipstick: Lancome in Le Carmin

When I saw the CityChic Open Rose dress in "Fruit Salad" in Gwynnie Bee's new releases I just had to try it. Summer is the time of the year to wear all the fun prints, and a dress covered in fruit and flowers is just that. This dress is available at Gwynnie Bee in several other prints: florals and fireworks and more. While this print may be a bit too wacky for my workplace, I can't wait to wear it to a cookout or date night.

What I Wore: Fruit and FlowersAnd what makes this dress so great? I'm wearing my everyday bra with it! The straps are a hair wider to keep them covered, the back is elasticized/smocked and high enough to cover everything. Oh yeah, and it has pockets! As a reminder, if you're in New York City, I'll be at the Gwynnie Bee Flatiron pop-up shop tonight from 5-8pm. Would love to meet you!

What I Wore: Fruit and FlowersEllos recently sent me some pieces and this jacket is one of them. Not knowing the brand well, I decided to go large with sizes and got this denim jacket in 16. I should have gotten a 14; while it fits really well in the arms and shoulders, the body is a bit too boxy for me. I'll be honest, the pictures I ended up choosing from the ones Karl took were the ones where the jacket looked the best/less boxy. But I like the shorter length; it works far better with dresses than my J. Crew Factory denim jacket. The denim is nice - not too heavy, stretchy but so tightly woven it doesn't look stretchy and it doesn't stretch out. I wore their shirtdress (M) and wedge espadrilles in my Strong Women in Fashion post, and as I type this I'm wearing their Off the Shoulder Tee in 14/16 (which isn't off the shoulder and is made of awesome fabric that keeps its size and shape after being washed and dried). Expect to see more Ellos on the blog; they have great basics in sizes up to 5X and even wide width shoes, all at really nice prices.
