Annie Jean Apparel {Review}

I’ve been in the market for some slightly dressy ‘casual wear’ for a while now. I want something more interesting to slip on then the boring t-shirts that overwhelm my wardrobe, but I also want something light weight and summery.

I’ve seen a bunch of items for Annie Jean Apparel floating around GroopDealz (a daily deal fashion site) and I’m always drawn to how flattering and stylish their clothing is.

They have a handful of t-shirt styles, but they’ve taken them up a step by adding fun patterns, buttons, and embellishments, which move them from the boring every day shirts into the I-look-awesome-I’m-going-to-rock-this-day kind of shirts. Their t-shirts look comfortable and I love the playful patterns, but what I’ve really been sucked by is their absolutely gorgeous sheer blouses.

I was tickled to get to review the “Be Envied Polka Dot Top” in Mint, and it did not disappointed. The top is light-weight, and though it’s fairly substantial you should still to plan to wear an undershirt, or at least a bandeau with it. The color is a beautiful light creamy mint and the whole shirt is just kind of dreamy.

I’m wearing a size L, and it’s a little roomy, I maybe could have gone down a size. However, the soft flowy nature of the shirt still makes it a flattering fit. I also like that it’s got a fairly high neck, and it would look great with an accent necklace. The front has two pocket details and that line down the front is a folded pleat, not a line of covered buttons.

It has ¾ sleeves that are ruched up to about elbow length and held in place by a silver button embellishment. The shirt is light weight, and kind of billowy. It has a high low cut which works great for tucking it or letting it drape.   It’s super versatile and looks great paired with a skirt, shorts or jeans.

 

If you want to mix it up Annie Jean has a bunch of other sheer blouses in patterns ranging from daisies to skulls and they are definitely worth checking out. This is one boutique shop that will dazzle you with their online options. They’ve got fantastic tops and a huge variety of styles; dressy, casual, summery, comfortable, solid, and patterns. They’ve also got colorful printed leggings, skirts, and dresses. If you’re looking for some cute patterned clothing, perfect for summer than you’ve got to check out Annie Jean Apparel.

You can find this blouse and more great summer shirts at their online store, ShopAnnieJean.com or follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

Kendall Jane Boutique {Review}

My summer wardrobe kills me!

I grew up in Utah where June-Sept its easily reaches 90+ degrees. It’s hot but at least in Utah it’s a dry heat, Boston is a whole different story.  I’m still dealing with 90+ degree weather, but there’s also this thick layer of sauna like wetness, known as humidity, that coats you whenever you walk out the front door. I feel like I’m getting steam roasted.

Another big problem is I’m a fairly conservative dresser. Spaghetti strapped tank tops don’t really suit me.  So, I grudgingly pull out my thinnest t-shirt and brave the wet heat whenever I need to go anywhere. (Did I mention we’re city folk and don’t have a car? I do lots of summer walking…)

I have a handful of shirts for these kinds of adventures. Shirts that are light, but not so light that they are see through – which would force me to wear an undershirt and defeat the purpose of wearing a light shirt.  Such shirts are hard to come by.

Now I would like to Introduce Kendall Jane Boutique.

They have fantastic, trendy clothing at great prices.  You can find shirts that range from about $10-25 with great summer styles like color block, chevron, Aztec and more.  Check out these little numbers and tell me you’re not interested:

And don’t forget dresses and accessories.

I was sent the Coral Basic Dolman for my review and I love it! (My window makes it look ombre, but it’s actually a solid color)

Guess what?! It’s currently being sold for only $15! This is a perfect spring/summer transition shirt.  It’s bright, comfortable, lightweight, and breathable, but thick enough that I didn’t need to wear an undershirt with it to keep my bra from being exposed.  It’s gathered on the sides, which works as a nice little accent and allows it to drape loosely across your stomach.

It’s also super versatile. It easily transitions between dressy and casual.  I paired it with a skirt and wore it to church one week, then turned around and paired it with leggings for a BBQ.

I’m thrilled to have a lightweight shirt to add to my summer wardrobe.  If you like what you saw here then you’ve got to check out them out:
