2014 Blogger Challenge: week 8 – My Favorite Springtime Clothing Picks

The eighth post for our #2014BloggerChallenge is all about clothes.  I wanted to do something a little different and showcase a few of my favorite pieces that I’m adding to my wardrobe this spring.

1. Pleione Mixed Media Roll Sleeve – I read Pinterest Told Me To and Sheaffer was raving about this shirt a few weeks ago.  After reading the rave reviews, I headed to Nordstrom to try it on. I fell in loveeeee this shirt is great! It’s so comfortable, and can be dressed up or down depending on your mood.  In true Stephanie fashion, I bought it in three colors navy, black, and a nice peachy pink immediately.  {someone please tell me I’m not the only person who does this when they find something they love?}

2. Asymmetrical Wrap Cardigan by Bobeau-  I know I professed my love for open front cardigans a few months ago and this wrap by Bobeau is one of my favorite designs.  I noticed the fabric on this one is more lightweight than the ones I highlighted over the winter.  Working indoors, most of the time I need something with sleeves to keep me from freezing and this looks just perfect.  I can’t wait to get it!

I {heart} Open Front Cardigans!

I’m not sure if I’ve ever really mentioned the love I have for open front cardigans… Well.. in case you were wondering-  I love, love, love them… Especially since I’ve started working in an office – I like to keep one handy for days when it’s chilly in the office. I’ve also noticed since I put on some weight, they’ve been a staple go-to in my wardrobe – I know I’m not hiding that extra weight, but I feel like they help me to downplay the extra pounds a little bit.   Since I have such a love for them, I thought I’d share two of my favorite open front cardigans with you all!  Both can be found at Nordstrom..

The first is this Bobeau Asymmetrical Fleece Wrap Cardigan – I have this one in three colors {black, dark grey, and a dark blue} and I’m currently debating getting a few more because I love them so much! I’ve been thinking about the dark orange, pink paradise, and maybe even dark purple! At least 4 ladies in my office have jumped on the Bobeau wagon, and they look great on everyone {sidenote: it also comes in petite, and plus sizes.}  As an added bonus I noticed this week they’re on sale at Nordstrom for under $40!    One of the things I love most about this is it’s something I can throw on anytime of the year to warm up a bit.. especially once I pick up one {or all} of those brighter colors.

The second is a newer obsession for me, the Barefoot Dreams Chic Lite Wrap.  I bought myself the black one after Christmas, and I want to wear it EVERY day { I’m not joking.. it’s that great!}.  It’s so comfortable, warm, and cozy!!   This one is a bit more expensive ($90!) but totally worth it… I’m thinking about getting another color but I just can’t decide which one!  The ombre intrigues me and the light pink looks almost white {gosh I’d probably get it dirty the second I put it on.} I know at Christmastime they only had three colors- black, ombre, and grey so I’m hoping if I hold out a little longer a few more colors might be forthcoming!

PS: I personally like to wear mine with clothes.. but it’s seriously comfy enough to wear like this!
