Popbasic Wanderlust Collection

Rating: Love It!!!!
Cost: $78

I have some very exciting news! Popbasic ran a contest from their Popcast and they were looking for viewers to name the pieces of the Wanderlust Collection. Well, of course I entered, because who wouldn't want to win this collection! And....I won!!! I was so happy and excited and they sent it out right away, so I have it in my hands before the collection is available to purchase. Yay! So, you get to see what I thought about it, before it's even released.

The Wanderlust Collection will be available Wednesday, August 13th at 10am PST (1pm EST for all of us East Coasters). And since Popbasic used the names of the pieces I came up with I will be including the descriptions as they appear on my information card, so exciting! Also, Popbasic includes a special extra in the collection and I won't be spoiling that for all of you, so that will not be in my pictures.

Ok, now on to the pieces. But, first here was the first look when I opened the box.

The first item I was excited to try on was the Impulse Cardigan. "It's the perfect companion to any outfit. Wrap yourself up in our impulse cardigan when you're about to embark on a road trip, or heading out for a few last minute dinner essentials." It's 100% cotton and machine washable. I've always loved that about Popbasic, most of their items are machine washable! This cardigan drapes beautifully and is very soft and comfortable. It's a dreary, rainy day here, so I'm already wearing it. To get this review up quickly I took some pictures on myself and with a dress form. (Oh, how I really really hate getting my photo taken, can you tell?!?)

I tied the front of the cardigan for a different look also. I think this could look nice with dresses with a defined waist. (Sorry for the wrinkles)

And because you can never have too many striped tees, I was so happy to receive the Traveler Tee! "A staple in every suitcase, the traveler tee is a light weight cotton, that pairs effortlessly with jeans, ballet flats and a cardigan." That is basically what I'm wearing all the time, so this tee suits me perfectly. It fits comfortably and I love the roll sleeve detail. It's a heavier weight tee than the tee featured in the Jane Collection, so it is not sheer, which I like. It's 80% cotton, 15% polyester, 5% spandex and machine washable.

The final item in the collection is the Drifter Necklace. "An effortless piece for when you're packing light. Wear your drifter necklace with your casual day outfits, or pair with a simple black dress when you're enjoying dinner and a show." The necklace is gunmetal and a very nice weight. It has a lobster claw clasp and can be worn on a few settings. This necklace is very much my style and I know I will get so much wear out of it.

I am so happy with this collection and could not be more thrilled to have won it! I know I will be wearing these pieces all year long and can't wait to see what Popbasic comes out with next. And remember if you haven't signed up for Popbasic e-mails yet, you'll save $15 on your next purchase by clicking any of my links in this post and signing up.
