It is HERE! The 2nd annual Gibson x International Women’s Day Collection is officially live at Nordstrom and ready to shop! While International Women’s Day falls on Sunday this year, I’m celebrating a few days early with the lovely ladies you see above. I was so excited to be included in this powerhouse group of women to design pieces with Gibson to create a spring collection that was thoughtfully created with you in mind. From cozy pieces to get you through your Saturday morning coffee runs to skirts you can rock at the office and dresses that have Easter celebration written all over them, there is truly something for all of life’s occasions in this mix. The best part [aside from their ridiculous cuteness and comfy fabrics] is that they are offered in sizes for every body. Literally. With petites, standard and extended sizing in all of the pieces, it is inclusive with the hope of making every one of us feel like our best selves this spring.
More than the clothes, it’s the women who wear them that make them so special. International Women’s Day is all about celebrating and supporting the women that we are. Today, I want to celebrate YOU and all that you are. Thank you for being my trusty sidekick, my biggest cheerleader and my source of inspiration for what I do.
Now let’s meet the pieces that make up this year’s IWD collection shall we?! We’ll start with a few I’m biased towards, the two Living in Yellow pieces 😉
You may recall a similar style from our Gibson x LIY spring collection last year when we did a halter style dress but above the knee — well it was such a hit we brought it back in midi form! I love the flow of this piece and how perfect it is for vacation, Easter, graduation parties and the list goes on! It’s fully lined and fully twirl ready. Bonus: two additional colors will be launching soon!
Living in Yellow Ruffle Trim Front Button Sleeveless Top [fit tip: Size down one – wearing in small but need XS] // Plus: Living in Yellow Ruffle Trim Front Button Sleeveless Top // Fancy Ashley Asymmetrical Flowy Midi Skirt [size up one, wearing in small] // The Mom In Style Wide Leg Crop Pants [size up if in between, wearing in small]
A classic with some elevated details. You can’t beat a great tank for spring and summer and you especially can’t beat a great tank that you can take with you into fall and winter [just add a jacket]! Between the hidden buttons and ruffle trim detail, it’s a chic piece that you can dress up or down depending on your mood. Stay tuned over the next few days as you’ll see it drop in more prints!
Oh joggers, you are my favorite. I wore these on my redeye flight home from Seattle last week and I can attest to just how comfortable and wonderful they are. They feel similar to linen [without actually being linen] and are so easy to style a ton of ways. I highly recommend!
Nasreen Off the Shoulder Knit Jumpsuit [fit tip: true to size, Nasreen is wearing in XS petite and is 5’1]
Excuse me. Did I just come across the coziest and cutest jumpsuit that ever did exist? Yes, yes I did. I fell in love with this on first try. Whether you rock it alone off the shoulder with your fave sneakers or sandals or pair it with a denim jacket for travel, it’s a must.
Another absolute favorite from the group, this ruffled tank with the swiss dot detail is all sorts of wonderful. It is fully lined and has a great body to it so it’s not clingy at all. Tuck it in for work or wear it out for date night, I have a feeling this one is going to go f-a-s-t so you may want to act quickly!
Steph Taylor Jackson Smocked Shoulder Ruffle Wrap Dress [fit tip: Stephanie is wearing in small and is 5’7] // Plus: Steph Taylor Jackson Smocked Shoulder Ruffle Wrap Dress
Wrap me up and never take me off – that’s a lot how I felt when I put this dress on. It is so flattering and fun. Whatever you have going on this spring, I’d make this dress apart of it.
Is it okay for me to go ahead and declare a favorite top in this collection? Good, because I’m doing it with this one. You will love the fabric [at least I know I did] and how versatile it is. Wear it on your shoulders, wear it off both shoulders or wear it one shoulder, the world is your oyster with this baby.
Have I mentioned yet how the collection was really designed to mix and match with each other?! This tank is the perfect example of that – as you’ll notice this cute tank pairs perfectly with the skirts you’ll see below and color matches the wide leg pants. I love the ruffle detail at the neckline and the lightweight fabric making it an awesome piece for summer!
I love that this top screams “take me to the work place” as it’s such a great option to pair with your favorite skirt or pair of work pants but also works just as well with jeans for your next day date.
I’m a sucker for a pair of cropped wide leg pants and these are no exception. How fun are they?! You can totally rock these at the office or on your next vacation. The good news? You have your pick in literally any top in this collection to pair with them!
This top literally embodies the “sweet and petite” vibe perfectly. It is the cutest little top to throw on and the fabric is amazingly soft and wonderful. It’s one of those great pieces you can throw on with a pair of jeans and instantly feel put together. Bonus: Nursing mama’s this one will work great for you thanks to its snap closure!
Anna Wide Neck Dolman Sleeve Sweatshirt [fit tip: true to size, Anna is wearing in XS and is 5’7]
Put the words “dolman sleeve” and “sweatshirt” and I’m over here adding to cart instantly. If you love a great sweatshirt for cozy days at home, time spent on the soccer sidelines or a casual date night, this is your girl [yes, I’m referring to the sweatshirt as a human now, it’s that good].
Remember how I said this collection was designed to mix and match?! Insert this fun midi skirt that you can rock with nearly all of the tops in this collection. This has an asymmetrical design with ruffles mixed in making it one of the more interesting and exciting skirts you’ll have in your closet!
Can we just talk about how incredibly sweet and feminine this dress is?! It is oozing with spring and is begging to take it somewhere stat. I love the blush polka dot detail with the buttons down the entire front. The back is equally as charming!
Wow – there we have it. 14 spring pieces designed by 14 women I love and admire. Which piece[s] are you loving the most?! I’d love to hear!
