SHOP NOW: Gibson x Living in Yellow Spring Garden Party Collection!

April 23, 2019

By:

Erin Schrader

The time is NOW and the collection is HERE! I truly have never been more excited about a collection that Gibson and Living in Yellow have joined forces on and created for all of you! I don’t know if it’s because spring naturally lends itself to light and bright colors, feminine florals, or the airy lightweight fabrics and flattering cuts, or the need to get a little fancy thanks to its plethora of events, but whatever it is — I am in LOVE! I can’t believe this is the third collection that we have now partnered with Gibson on and I am so grateful for their support along and the opportunity they have continued to bring us! It is all because of YOU, the reader, that such an opportunity exists so thank you, thank you and thank you! I hope that you absolutely love the pieces that you see below and that they bring you as much joy as they did to us when dreaming up! Here are a few details about our Spring Garden Party Collection before we jump in!

The collection is available exclusively at Nordstrom.com! We are so excited to bring you inclusive sizing on this collection which means the 14 pieces [a total of 45 pieces thanks to many color options!] that you see below are offered in petite, standard and plus sizing! Additionally, at the heart of this collection is the idea of mixing and matching! As you’ll see, all of the tops can be paired with all of the bottoms and the color options are nearly unlimited! Whether you have a wedding to attend [better yet – maybe you’re the bride], a bridal or baby shower to go to, a Mother’s Day brunch to host, or a vacation to escape off to, there is a piece [or many!] for that!

Sizing Details: Below you’ll see suggested sizing tips for each piece! For reference, I am 5’4, typically a 2/26 in bottoms and 2/4 in tops!

ps. If you’d like to see all pieces on several different bodies, tune into our Facebook Live at 9 am EST for a fun runway show!

Without further ado, I present you the Gibson x Living in Yellow Spring Garden Party Collection
