My Favorite Pieces from Eloquii’s New Draper James Collaboration Launch

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw me FREAK OUT when Eloquii announced its collaboration with Draper James, Reese Witherspoon’s brand.

I literally shed tears of joy when it launched because I’ve never had access to southern inspired clothing I love in my size.

You can see a some of my previous Draper James For Eloquii looks HERE and HERE, but today’s post is all about the pieces I’m excited to try from the second launch of the collaboration which just dropped TODAY!

5 Ways To Style A Classic Tee

I’ll admit it… I’ve never really been a jeans and tee shirt kind of girl.  I’ve always enjoyed dresses and skirts and being a little bit “extra” in my everyday life.

As I’ve gotten older (hello, early 30’s!), I’ve started to embrace a slightly more casual aesthetic.  I think this has a lot to do with being more comfortable and confident in my own skin and not feeling the need to “dress to impress” all the time.  I also value comfort more than ever.

Blazer:  Here | Tee:  Here | Jeans:  Here (RWN by Rawan via Gwynnie Bee)

Regardless of whether I’m wearing a fancy dress or a comfy tee, I want to look put together and more importantly FEEL good in what I’m wearing.  That’s why when Universal Standard reached out to me about trying a couple items from their line, I KNEW I had to go for some of their popular “elevated” basics.

What I love about Universal Standard is that they tackle the notion that plus size women won’t invest in quality clothing items head on.  I have been personally guilty of refraining from investing in quality (long lasting) clothing items because of my fluctuating size.  In the past I was always planning or hoping to lose weight, so I didn’t want to accept that I’d be in my current size long enough to NEED clothing to last.
