My First Golden Tote

So, it’s no secret I like to shop.

I love clothes, I love pretty things and I love to share pretty clothes with you!

I was so excited when the lovely folks at Golden Tote reached out to me to try out their service and share with my fabulous readers. Pretty clothes?! I’m in. Duh. tote life

Have YOU heard about Golden Tote?!

Golden Tote is pretty much two of my favorite things combined into one cute little monthly bag – Clothes AND Surprises!  

Here’s the deal -> First, you choose your tote! New totes go on sale the first Monday of every month. The Mini Tote contains 2 clothing items, one you choose and one surprise. The Golden Tote contains 5 clothing items, two you choose and three surprises. The Surprise Tote contains 3 clothing items, all a surprise.

Depending on which tote you choose you get to pick one or two items you love, and the rest is a Surprise! Adorable, stylish clothing, at insider pricing, {more than 50% off retail prices} and I really love the fact that you get to pick specific pieces but there’s also the surprise in there too!
GT I was able to try out the Golden Tote version myself, so I was able to pick out two items I really wanted to try and then I would be getting three other items which would be a surprise. I took a style profile and let my stylist know a little bit more about me, what I like and what I’m looking for. You even have the option to share pictures – of yourself or even a pinterest board of your style.

I have to say I sort of really love this idea. You get to control a little bit of the situation with your picks, and then based on your picks, other items are pulled for you as a little extra styling treat. Win!

When it came time for me to choose the two items I definitely wanted, it was a really hard choice, because everything was so amazing and so cute. I wanted it all. That made me feel even more amazing about the surprises that would be coming my way – I felt really good about it and couldn’t want to try it out!

And guess what – everything arrived in a cute little tote! Ha!

Tie Sleeve Top – Orange TIE SLEEVE DETAIL

First up is my first pick. When I saw this I immediately knew I had to have it. I love the off the shoulder, open arm look and the pattern, please. I’m in love. The oranges, blues, hints of pinks, a little ikat, a little tribal. Love. Serious Love.

Because this was one of my picks it came with a styling card. TIE SLEEVE TOP

Even better in real life – don’t you love it when that happens?!

I am really happy with this top. I think it’s cute with shorts, will be cute with jeans and we will have a very happy time together because of all the fun colors. I don’t have anything like this in my closet and I can’t wait to go out and wear it!

And I know its meant to be worn off the shoulder, but it’s cute up on the shoulder too for a bit of a different look!

This was a hot ticket item I knew from the start. It came in a beautiful blue and it was sold out quick, but I was excited to get my hands on the green, I need more green in my wardrobe! I enjoy green.

I have to say that swing dresses are totally in this season and for flippin’ good reason. They are amazing and I’d like to buy all of them thank you. They are so comfortable and light, flowy and {I think} flattering on everyone. I love the pattern on this on personally and the green makes me happy. I’m glad I got the green.

Plus I look at this when I’m wearing the cute booties and I can’t help but get excited to style it for Fall – a big chunky sweater and we are in business! Going to be so cute!

Did I mention it’s got a little bit of a twirl action too? I have a thing for dresses that twirl.

And more twirls.

Sweet Claire White Floral Dress 

This dress was one of those things where you pull it out of the box and you sort of immediately disregard it. I totally did that with this dress. The white threw me for a loop. But then I put it on and I sort of fell in love again.


First things first. I’m floral obsessed. I want all of it. Give it to me now.

Second of all, this dress is sort of like a t-shirt, but in a long, comfortable, flowy dress form. I’m into that.

And it’s floral. So, I’m done.

I think it’s cute and comfortable now for the Summer but I also think I can totally wear this in the Fall with boots, sweaters, jean jackets. I think the white and the neutral pink floral pattern makes it pretty amazing to style and wear.

oh hey

This is really never something I would pick up to even try on in a store but I have to tell you, I really enjoy it.

Aaaaaand it twirls.

Potters Pot Striped Swing Dress STRIPED SWING DRESS

Next up is this black and white striped swing dress. I have to say, again, I wasn’t excited when I saw it at first. I have a few black and white striped dresses in my closet already – that I never seem to wear. Why would this be any different?

Well, let me tell you – because it’s a shift dress and it’s awesome. black and white

I don’t own many of these t-shirt, flowy dresses that are currently all the rage, but you can bet that will change in the next few weeks {maybe days?} because I love them all apparently. And I think they look really cute!


And AGAIN I love this for pretty much all seasons – comfortable now but you can totally layer later to warm it up a bit. It’s amazing and I love to have versatile pieces like this in my closet.

Not to mention that the black and white stripes are pretty classic!
