Well, that was fast! I can’t believe it was exactly two weeks ago today that we launched Gibson x Living In Yellow with all of you! The past two weeks have been such an incredible time and the love, support and excitement we have felt from you have been amazing, thank you oh so much! We loved it so much we thought – why stop now? So here we are today, launching 7 NEW pieces for you to get your hands on and love! You may recall that the first group of 10 pieces that we put out was made up of all of the best basics – closet staple pieces in solid colors, pieces you could mix and match together and cozy items you never want to take your bodies out of. For round two, while we are still weaving in that “best basics” mentality, we are bringing you a few more pops of colors and prints and an added element of pizazz. You will notice that several of the pieces below will pair perfectly with some items in launch one which means you can continue to get even more use out of what you’ve already purchased!
Before we jump completely in, as you’ll see, I am noting sizing suggestions for each piece based on how they fit me personally. Of course, that information is only as good as the stats you have so let’s get that out of the way. I am 5’4, 125 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. While on the topic of sizing, in ALL of the pieces below you will find inclusive sizing which offers XXS petite – XXL petite, XS – XXL and 1X-3X. We are beyond excited to be able to offer women of all shapes and sizes the ability to feel confident and beautiful while wearing our collection. Okay, let’s do this!
Maggie Twist Hem Top – Named after my precious little puppy of 11 years, Maggie, who was known for her one little ear which would stand up when she was excited – the triangle sleeve detail is a representation of that cute ear and makes me so happy every time I put this on!
Available in three solid colors and three spring prints, this top is the perfect work or play piece! Between the twist hem detail and the triangle sleeve, there is a lot of fun added to this top to keep things interesting. I wear this piece in XS regular and find it pretty true to size. I would recommend sizing up if you are a pear body type [smaller up top, wider in the hips].
Reagan Tank – Currently available in three solid colors [black, spring crocus and poppy] and now comin’ atcha in this floral spring print!
This was such a hit the first time around in the solid colors, we knew we needed it in a print as well! This is the perfect piece to wear alone or under our Claire cardigan [as you’ll see below] or the Barbara Jacket. It’s such a flattering piece as it offers a high/low hemline and a perfectly cut v-neck which won’t have you baring all while still showing enough skin. I would size down if in between in this and wear in XS regular.
Claire Cardigan – Currently available in three color combos [black, black/white, grey] and now bringing it to you in these spring ready pops in spring crocus and poppy!
Remember how I said that the cardigan pairs perfectly with the new Reagan tank? Combine the poppy color + the Reagan tank and it’s adorable! Both of these colors I am LOVING for spring and I love that it’s an easy way to add color to your wardrobe without having to try too hard. Both of these colors also pair perfectly with some of our solid pieces from launch one. The ribbed texture is still my favorite and it’s amazing how lightweight this piece is which makes it one you can wear all summer long! I would recommend sizing down and wear this in XS regular.
Elizabeth Date Night Top – Named after Suzie’s [the creator of Gibson] grandmother who was a beautiful, talented and inspiring woman.
My favorite top in this second collection – this date night top is SO stinkin’ cute and even more comfortable. Between the one shoulder ruffle that goes all the way around and the sweatshirt-like stretchy material, you will never want to take this cutie off. Available in four colors, you can’t go wrong in any shade when you’re wearing this flirty little number. I find it true to size and wear in XS regular.
Erin Cross Over Tunic – Currently available in four solid colors, we are now bringing it to you in two prints!
I, of course, wanted to be sure to have a yellow piece somewhere in this line and we finally got it with this yellow watercolor print that I love! So fresh and summer ready! In addition, we added this orange print with little blue, navy and white detail. This cross over tunic was such a hit the first time around and can be worn for work or nights out. I love how versatile this piece is! I find this true to size and wear in XS regular.
Barbara Jacket – Named after my favorite woman, my mother. She is such a classic beauty who is strong and smart.
We heard the pleas for a comfortable yet flattering blazer and so we delivered! This knit blazer has so many great qualities to it you won’t ever want to wear another again. First off, it is SO comfortable. Second, the cuffed sleeve detail makes it stand out among all of your traditional boring blazers. You can wear our blazer with the Felicity tee, Reagan tank or the Millie tank which makes it super versatile and the fact that it is both work appropriate yet can be dressed down for a girls night out with a statement necklace and tee makes it a closet must-have. I would size down if in between, I wear this in XS regular.
Becca Tank Dress – Named after LIY’s Creative Director, Becca who is anything BUT simple yet always looks classic, much like this dress.
I couldn’t love this simple shift dress more. Available in three awesome solid colors and one floral print, I love the colors that we are offering this piece in. Super flattering on so many body types and we kept the length work appropriate so you can wear it during 8-5. A little keyhole detail in the back gives it an extra touch and the fact that you can wear a regular bra with it makes it an absolute win in my book. You can easily throw on a jacket over top or wear it alone, whatever the case you will look easy breezy in this dress. This dress is fully lined so sheerness isn’t is a concern! I find this true to size and wear in XS.
And there we have it! I hope you love it as much as the first collection – shop it ALL right here! Remember that quantities are limited so if you see something that you love, be sure to snag it asap! HAPPY SHOPPING! ps. It’s triple points day at Nordstrom so now is the time to rack up those purchases 😉
