I can’t believe it – we are TWO days away from the launch of our Gibson x Living in Yellow cozy collection at Nordstrom.com! Time flies when you’re helping to design a line, phew! Somehow we’re creeping in quickly on November which means all things holiday is literally right around the corner. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? Back to the Gibson x LIY thing though really quick – if you want to see the collection in its entirety FIRST on Monday, make sure to sign up for our newsletter right here! You will receive the complete look book of all of the pieces, with outfit inspiration, fit tips and links to shop it all before anybody else sees it! Additionally, join us Monday morning at 9 am EST for a fun facebook live launch party where you’ll see the clothes on and in action on several different body types! Bonus: the entire collection will be given away during the live! So many fun things right around the corner, but for now, we’ve got outfits to get through! This week I’m bringing you all of the looks I rocked this week: ponchos, vests, and leggings being the common theme!

One more thing actually before we dive in! Let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – for sizing reference, 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. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can pin any of these looks below to save for future reference! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright, fellow “I like to get dressed” friends, let’s begin!

While the CDC may be recommending social distancing [thanks, Coronavirus], the calendar isn’t paying attention, and holidays aren’t changing their dates!
