Reviewing Trunk Club: Cozy Holiday Fun

12 Dec

With the holiday season upon us, I was feeling the urge to give myself a little treat. So, I asked my fabulous stylist over at Trunk Club to send me over a holiday Trunk full of cozy sweaters and other goodies.

Want to see what I got in my holiday Trunk? As you can see, Alicia did an awesome job with filling my request of sending all the comfy sweaters. Even better, most of the sweaters that she sent over were between $59 – $69… including two amazing cashmere v-necks

If you’re new to my Trunk Club reveals (you can find them all here), I don’t typically photograph every single one of the items. With 15 items and a couple different outfits, it would just get to be way too much if I showed them all. When the Trunk first arrives, I usually go through it and narrow down my choices to a pile of my favorites. Then, I take those favorites and try them with a couple different outfits from my closet to see if they will play well with the rest of my wardrobe.

Here are my favorites from this Trunk:

Outfit #1: 11 + 1

I knew when I saw the preview that I was going to be smitten with this “Love” sweater! It’s lightweight so that I can wear it all day without overheating and the graphic LOVE on the front is really cute, with still being age appropriate. I tried it with a pair of my favorite jeans and the Lucky Brand booties, as well as tucked into a full skirt. I can see throwing this on for the weekend, or even pairing it with a blazer for a more casual workday. This sweater was a total no-brainer for me and reasonably priced at $69. I love it so much that I already wore it this past weekend on our romantic Bed & Breakfast mini-break!

Outfit #2: 14 + 1

I love the color of this cashmere sweater! It feels like a great fall/winter shade that can be paired with a bunch of options. I kept it simple and did two casual outfits – the first with my favorite jeans and the Lucky Brand booties; and the second with navy corduroys and knee-high boots. If you are looking for an affordable cashmere sweater, go out right now and buy this one (or put it on your Christmas list). It comes in 15 colors and is currently 20% off, which makes it $69.20. For me, as much as I like the color and fit of this one, it’s a little too warm since I tend to run kind of hot.

Outfit #3: 9 + 1

This olive green hooded top is a great loose layer that gives you a little room for those holiday splurges. On the Nordstrom website they have it styled with a longer white shirt underneath and I really wanted to do the same, but didn’t have a similar top. Instead I paired it with a black tank top, jeans and the Lucky Brand booties for my first look, and navy corduroys and knee-high boots for the second look. I actually went back and forth on this top quite a bit before making up my mind. The sad and droopy pockets bothered me, so I decided that it wasn’t a perfect fit for me.

Those booties though… check out the close up:

They are super comfortable and I love the way they look with jeans, so we have another winner! They come in a bunch of different colors and they are currently 15% off on the Nordstrom website, making them $84.

Final Thoughts on this Trunk
I loved this month’s Holiday Trunk and am super excited about the graphic ‘Love’ sweater and Lucky Brand booties. Sure, I could have purchased a few more sweaters out of the Trunk, but I’m at the point where I’m trying to only buy items that I’m super excited about!

    I loved the way you styled the pieces. The purple sweater and love sweater are definitely winners.
