Sorry, no food post today. Due to all the medical tests and doctor visits I've had recently, I have had little to no time to cook. So instead of posting about food, I'd like to talk about a new designer I just discovered, Joie, specifically the soft collection.
For some reason, this spring, I decided I wanted some cruise, nautical-themed shirts. I need the horizontal stripes to help me not look so skinny. Awhile ago, I purchased a Groupon for my favorite local boutique. Have you ever used Groupon? I didn't think I would until I saw this coupon for 50% off at my favorite boutique, I just couldn't pass that up, so I signed up then and there.
Recently, I went in to use it. Joie is a new line they just starting carrying and I immediately fell in love with how soft the fabric was; I'm all about comfort. I ended up getting a couple shirts, this one:
and this one, but in black.
I cannot even describe how comfortable these shirts are. The fit is incredible, too. Even though they are loose, they don't look baggy. Since i'm still trying to gain weight, I figured I'd got with some shirts that will accommodate some weight gain.
I am so glad I discovered them. They had dresses, too, but for some reason they didn't fit me well.
I tried this one in navy, but even the XS looked shapeless. Even the sales associate agreed it wasn't very flattering.
I really fell in love with this shirt, but they didn't have my size, and the bigger size just didn't look right on me, not even with a wide belt.
While browsing the collection online I came across a few other pieces that I love. This romper is adorable, and I was never a fan of them. But I would actually rock this one:
And if anyone is feeling generous and would like to purchase this adorable top for me, I would be eternally grateful.
What are your favorites for spring?
