Spring With Splendid

It was so fun to celebrate spring with Splendid on Saturday! I hadn't yet visited the Chestnut Hill store, and while I generally prefer to shop online (efficiency model!), there was definitely something to be said for being able to paw all of Splendid's ridiculously soft knits + get dressing room consults in person! I wanted to share some fun photos from the event, as well as my favorite picks for easy breezy spring/summer dressing.

So, first, this has nothing to do with clothes, but isn't this candy bar AMAZING? Splendid engaged Sweet Indulgence to set up this beautiful display + some candy crafts. I love how bright and cheerful it was! It took all of my restraint not to eat 10 cupcakes.

I walked in wearing what I was planning on wearing but then I couldn't help but shop a little! And though I never, ever imagined a romper would work on me, I am now a convert thanks to this jersey jumpsuit. I literally walked out of the dressing room and asked a staffer to clip the tags off me. I especially love that you can dress this romper up or down and it feels like you're wearing PJs. WIN.

So much beautiful, soft clothing -- not just for women, but men and kids too.

I was thrilled to co-host this event with my friends Audrey of Mom Generations and Roxanna of Everyday Treats. These ladies are so smart and talented and kind.

So now, for my picks. There are tons of great mix and match separates at Splendid, but one of my favorite ways to simplify getting dressed is one-piece items. To date, this has meant dresses for me, but now I'm a fan of rompers/jumpsuits! In addition to my jersey jumpsuit, here are 6 pieces I recommend: 1) I pawed this v-neck maxi dress (in flamingo) a dozen times. It was so silly of me not to just go ahead and buy it at the store! I'm going to order it online. 2) Roxanna was wearing the cowl neck jumpsuit and it looked phenomenal. Flattering + comfy. 3) One of the staffers was wearing this desert rain tie dye romper and she looked adorable. 4) This jumpsuit is super chic; I want this one too. 5) This stripe bubble dress is a perfect kick around dress for spring/summer. You can never go wrong with stripes! 6) If you don't mind taking a risk on final sale, I love this strapless maxi dress in apricot. So flowy and elegant!

 

Thanks to everyone who came out for the event and if you haven't tried on Splendid's wears, I highly recommend it! They totally nail the comfy chic niche!
