What’s New; New Arrivals at the Posh Peach Pre-Fall!

      Hey there, guys! Is this another Thursday where I’m on time? I think it is! For today’s post,  I journeyed to the far off land of Downtown Columbus to gather you guys some What’s New content for this up-coming Fall! The Posh Peach is known here at JnJ for bringing styles and aesthetics that I absolutely adore! This time when I wandered in was no different! I meandered around the store looking for anything that caught my eye, which if I’m being honest, was everything. 

     Since I’m a little rusty on this sort of content, I’m just going to jump right in. For the outfits, I stuck to the new arrivals instead of doing my usual and scavenging the clearance rack. The first outfit that I found and promptly came to love, was this one. Some white skinnies and this cute yellow shirt that said ‘Raise Good Humans’– that’s a sentiment I can totally get behind! However, I could not for the life of me, find the shirt on their site. It may be already on clearance, since I waited a little bit to make this post. Bummer! Though I did find a cached version of the page that appears to show the shirt!

   My second outfit, because I was too lazy to take the pants off for this one, is a subtle callback to the simpler times of the early to mid-2000s, where you could wear skirts and dresses over your pants, and only get judged a little. Ashley Tisdale was queen of that aesthetic, and I channeled just a little bit by pairing this dress with these pants. It looked better in my head, and truthfully would be miles better with a braided leather belt. I’m thinking boho chic? But hey, it has pockets!  

       This next outfit was on the opposite side of the spectrum, color-wise. The pants I couldn’t find on the site, of course, as is my custom. I will say that though I can’t locate them now, they are in my heart. These were the most comfortable skinnies I’ve ever put on my legs. I loved them. They had plenty of give and stretch, they were breathable and didn’t feel overly hot. I liked the tank as well with these, I think it paired perfectly and would great with some chunky wooden beads. If this particular outfit is still on sale when I get my paycheck, I would like to go back for it.

        Next up, is this light T-shirt dress. It was a soft and forgiving fabric that felt cool to the touch. Perfect for the warmer days of fall, as I don’t think it would be appropriate to sweat in it for the summer. It was a little ruched on the side, which I don’t generally like but it didn’t detract from the cuteness of the dress. It’s slightly olive colored, so it would be great with some off-white or soft tan tights. Maybe some wedges. Actually, scratch my summer comment, it could be a nice bathing suit cover-up if you really want to get some use out of it before the summer ends, which I don’t blame you!

 

     Anyone like animal print? That’s back in, right? I don’t know much about trends as of late, which is ironic given the post you’re reading. I have seen animal print more and more on my Instagram feed. This actually was the first thing where I was able to find both pieces in question! The skirt itself, was a little like silk? It was a tightly woven fabric, that I can’t place. Evidently, I’m a little tall for this skirt, but that’s okay! I do like the ankle look, because it pairs great with my favorite brown suede boots. This is ordinarily not my style, but I do like the way the shirt brings it together aesthetically. As with most of their shirts, this one is very lightweight and soft. It’s super comfy and is emblazoned with the words ‘Easy Tiger’.

 

    We’re to the last one! And, of course, I had to try a romper on my trip to my favorite boutique! You guys know me by now, I love rompers! This one… oh my gosh. It’s gorgeous. Lacy. Zips on the side. It’s perfect. It would so cute with a white triangle shawl, and some pearl earrings, maybe some strappy black or sandles… maybe some flats. I love this romper. It was insanely comfortable! This sort of romper would be great for summer, fall and eventually spring, if you warm it up a little with some tights. 

 

    What a perfect note to end this post on, I linked all of the stuff I could find so you can check it out and maybe order it for yourself, if you want to make me cry. As usual, I highly recommend you check them out and give them some love! I’m sure you’ll love them just as much as I do!

What’s New; Let’s Go Down to the Thicket

Hey guys! This last weekend didn’t go quite as I had planned, but it’s okay, because I still got some content for you! I had planned to attend an opening a couple hours away, but due to the continuing joblessness, we opted to stay close to home. I gathered a little content over the weekend, first up is the Lizard Thicket, where they graciously hosted me and allowed me to try on some of the newest ensembles in their inventory.

Whats New; February Posh Peach Edition

     Hey guys! Welcome to a new What’s New post for our very own Posh Peach, here in Columbus, GA.  Also, holy cow, is this one on time? I know the last post was a little different, but I hope you guys enjoyed it! I was absolutely floundering in my indecision on what to do with my hair. This post was gathered before my medium-chop, so it has my old hair in it- all future posts featuring the likeness of yours truly, will include my new-do, and I’m not even going to lie- I’m still way on the fence with it. I’m so on the fence that my first stop after leaving the salon was the beauty supply to grab a wig.

    That aside, I did find a few new pieces at the Posh Peach that I’m excited to share, and even brought some of it home with me (like I often do)! Without further ado, let’s get to the goods!

     I was able to find most things on the site- this was not one of them, however. It may be because this isn’t technically new to their shop, as it was on the sale rack. Who would I be if I passed up the sale rack? In the future, I think I’ll make an effort to confine my search to the newest-of-the-new for you guys! That aside, I really quite liked this romper (jumpsuit?), aside from the pesky little fact that it wouldn’t zip on the side that you can’t see. Oh, you thought I was just showing off my new tattoo? I was holding my arm in such a way to make it look zipped. That aside, I really wish this would have zipped up for me, because I really liked it! It was corduroy, which meant that it had a little give in the fabric and was warm. It broke my heart.

     I think, I would pair this with champagne accessories like a scarf or headband. Maybe a long beaded necklace, too.

 

        I did find two different pairs of corduroy pants for today’s post! I didn’t even think I really liked corduroy until just lately, but that’ll show me to think I know what I like. This particular pair is an earthy brown that I paired with their Back in Brick top, which genuinely can pass as a dress if you pair it with some super opaque tights or leggings. I thought these paired very well for a comfy and somewhat 70s vibe. I feel like a scarf would have tied it all together, and perhaps a paisley headband. Of course, my converse don’t lean to that aesthetic, and truthfully I’m at a loss for what sort of shoes I’d pair with this!

 

      This outfit was a little bit of a hit and miss with me. I wasn’t a big fan of the fit of the Spring Time in Heaven skirt or the stiffness of the material. The look between myself and the gorgeous model is a stark night and day- despite the similarities in our color choices. I really liked the colors of the skirt and was more than a little distressed that it didn’t quite suit me. The dog mama tee was just a little more sheer than I would generally prefer, as well. I feel like if the skirt ran a little larger in the sizing, it would have been fine. 

    This is the last thing that I can call new! I thought this was the Sweet Like Sugar wrap dress, but after looking at it closer I’ve determined that I need to wear my glasses more often. This is most assuredly not the wrap dress, but it certainly is adorable. I sadly, couldn’t find this item on their site after scrolling through the categories. This would be perfect for a datenight at a fair, dare I say, the upcoming Spring Fling here in Columbus? Suddenly I’ve decided that I’m lacking fair-appropriate styles and I need to fix that.

     This dress would be great with some strappy little sandals or some simple white pumps. Just really play into the sweet, femininity with a flowery necklace and, if you have long hair- a ponytail would make the whole look.

 

The Winners!

The items that went home with me from this visit, may seem familiar! They were featured in January’s What’s New Post! While I’m thinking about it, what was with that post title? Did I think I wasn’t going to be going back this year? Anyway, I’m super pleased that I was able to score my coveted funfetti cardigan and corduroy pants! Of course, since the pants are decidedly not new, I was unable to find them to provide a link.

     In this photo, I paired it with the Dog Mama shirt, that I almost bought. I decided that it was either the cardigan or it, and guys… I love me a cardigan. 

     Anyway, thank you guys for joining me for another What’s New post at one of my favorite shops in my lovely little town. And, can I just please give some props to the gorgeous ladies that model their clothes? Those are the faces of the sweet girls that work there, and they are just wonderful. Guys, please, share your secrets to looking so relaxed in front of the camera!

    I hope everyone is having a great Monday so far, and that those Resolutions are holding up for you! I, for one, have already lost my planner that was part of my resolution and I’m feeling lost without it. 🙁

What’s new: Revisting The Posh Peach!

     Hey guys! I know I did a what’s new on the Posh Peach a little more recently than most! But, proximity really makes it a consistent target for me. There’s going to be a what’s new on Lizard Thicket and Sassy and Southern, here very shortly! Maybe I’ll even visit The Blushing Brunette again. Who knows? I’m planning a whirlwind Weekend of content leading up to the Masquerade

     As usual, I’ll display my runners up and then save the victor for last! Because, there is a victor. I only did three full outfits for this post, so it should be a somewhat quick one!

     The Posh Peach has some amazing bell bottoms, and you guys know I love me some flare. I’m also a big fan of oversized sweaters. So this outfit is way  up my alley. These sunny yellow bell bottoms were on their new arrivals rack, and as luck would have it, they had some in my size. To my great pleasure, they’re not your typical button up pants. They have a wide elastic band in the waist and the fabric itself has a nice amount of give. 

     I paired this with a pastel large pink sweater. I’ll be honest with you, I love love love this sweater. It’s so soft and light, it’s perfect for the fall. I really liked it with these pants.

 

     This next one is a little out there, I found a Kimono and some white bell bottoms. The white ones, I had seen on their site and subsequently got obsessed with. I love the flare leg and the fit. The only thing I didn’t love was the kimono. I tried three different ways to wear this thing, and while I think it looked okay I don’t think it was something that really suited me. It was super comfy though. And had I been able to make it work for it, it would have been my choice.

 

                                                                    

   Neither of those looked quite right, and I wasn’t in love with the Kimono alone. So this was definitely a hard pass for me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Moving on to the winner and runner-upin one! I found this adorable dress on their rack outside, I knew I had to layer it. But with what? I scoured the racks inside to find a viable option and landed on this starry shirt. It fit comfortably, but too comfortably. It was a little bigger and less flattering than I felt like it should have been with this dress. 

     Disheartened, I had an idea. That pink sweater that I love so much. So I gave that a go. It works! I think this is my perfect fall outfit. Just throw on some grey tights and maybe white flats, and you’re good to go! It’s a little oversized, but that just adds some charm. It’s cute, feminine and (best of all) modest.

     This outfit now sits in my house, waiting for the temperature to dip into the 60s, so I can break it out. Speaking of the temperature dipping, I did get one more thing. Though on a separate trip. Really, I didn’t want to leave you with just 3 measley outfits, y’know? I made my way to the Posh Peach while on my lunch break, which may have been a lapse of judgment, honestly. Since I’m on the lookout for that new Anastasia Palette that I’m dying for. 

     But, go in I did and I found something. Well, some things. I  found a front tie purple shirt that I loved, and I had found this really cozy cardigan. Though it’s technically a S/M, it fits larger. I think it might be warmer than my usual black coat, actually. The moment I found it on the rack, I knew I’d love it if I tried it on. I tried to put it back, I really did. But there was a voice whispering to me, “it’s the last one, so it’ll be 20% off“. And that did it. With that thought, I took it to the dressing room and tried it on. 

 It’s generally more color that I usually go for. But, guys, I’m feeling it. I’m kind of obsessed. At the point, it was the sweater or the shirt. At $19 dollars for the shirt and the somewhat heftier tag on the sweater, I could only get one. I asked the cashier up front if they were going to get any more of these cardigans, in a last ditch effort to have some self-control, and she responded with “Most likely not”. So… The sweater won, due to it’s amazing versatility. I can wear this with (almost) anything and it would add a cute, quirky energy that I’m kind of living for.

 

What’s New: Posh Peach Edition

 
       Hi guys! Welcome to another What’s New adventure! I went to the Posh Peach after work because it’s been far too long since I’ve visited these lovely ladies. Walking in was a like a breath of fresh air, I didn’t realize how much I missed it- I was immediately reminded that I love their whole collection. I was so excited to see what new goodies they had for me today!
 
    My sheer excitement really made selecting pieces extremely difficult. I did eventually narrow it down to 4 main pieces. I selected 3 dresses and a somehow pirate reminiscent romper. They were all in the expected budget of between 20-50 dollars, not a bad price for the quality! The hard part was selecting the item that I would take home with me!
 
Posh Peach Romper
Burgundy Romper with a mild Pirate Aesthetic.
      The first style I threw on was this red, vertically striped romper. It was priced at 40-ish dollars, if I remember correctly and I see it being super cute with a cardigan and some gold accent jewelry. For shoes, I’m thinking sandals- most likely gold flats. I feel like the fabric may be a bit thick for hanging out in direct sunlight, but maybe I’m just too pale for that anyway. I’d probably pair it with a white headband to add some contrast. All in all, I do get a strange pirate aesthetic, which I’m really living for!
      I really like this for a super casual and fun look! You can take it all the way to the pirate side with a gold dangly, gypsy-inspired headband and gold jewelry, if that feeling moves you!
 
Bella Ruffled Metallic Leather Sandal  

Posh Peach Edgy Denim Dress 

The second item, and one of my two top picks for this post, was this adorable denim dress. It topped out at 48 dollars, being one of the highest priced item from this list. I loved the color, being denim with a hint of gunmetal grey. I loved the subtly edgy look of this dress- it made me want to find some distressed tights and black knee-high boots to complete the look. I’m feeling a small clutch for this dress, because it’s absolutely perfect for going to the club or just out with the girls. When I was wearing it, I really wanted to don some black eyeliner in place of my neutral makeup of the day. Seriously though, this dress was too cute and I was absolutely torn about taking this one home with me. Until of the next items.
 
       I feel like the name of the dress being “edgy” really lent the feeling of wanting to edge it up and made me feel like I was in high school again, a slightly welcome feeling in contrast to this terrible adult feeling I have recently.

Posh Peach Romantic Juliet Pairing

This third style was, strangely, juliet feeling. When I saw the two pieces separately, I knew immediately that I wanted them together. Whether or not they quite fit stylistically speaking, is another thing. 

This white-on-white look felt so romantic to me- something about it screamed a romeo and juliet feel. I kind of began to regret my black hair with this, because I see it with a blond crown-braid and night dewy makeup. I’m feeling some nude tights and nothing would be more perfect than white pumps. For accessories, I’m feeling a silver choker and some pastel dangle earrings. The dress was a clearance item, and was 20 dollars. I can’t recall how much the Kimono was- it was a last chance item, so if you like it, head on over to the Posh Peach to grab this elegant piece!
 
     My only gripe was that it was a tiny bit transparent. That may have been because they didn’t quite have my size- I made it work, but it wouldn’t zip up. I think this dress requires a slip though, or to wear something neutral underneath.

Posh Peach Boho Flowey dress
 
Now for the grand reveal- the item that stole my heart and my money! his last one had me completely obsessed- I immediately wanted to tear up because it was a little bit out of budget. But then I remembered something. I haven’t used the 20% coupon I got from their 4th Birthday Party. This dress is so, perfectly my aesthetic. Where the denim would make me feel like I was trying to be someone else. Someone edgier and all around cooler… or a person who goes out to clubs. This dress felt like I was being true to myself. The flowy bell sleeves- and perfect length felt so right. It was a whopping 43 dollars, or 35 dollars with my coupon (thanks, ladies!). 
 
      For accessories with this beautiful dress, I’d pair it with a flower crown (with white flowers!) and I feel like these boots work pretty well with the aesthetic. I can see it working great with longer more flowing hair, which means I have some time to wait! I sent a picture of this dress to my Fiance` and his comment that it “looks like me” pushed me to buy it. Instantly, I knew what I wanted to , and when it was in the bag and my rewards program was set up I was thrilled.
 
 
 
As usual, the Posh Peach thrilled me to no end. I absolutely adore so many of their styles and I’m always so happy to find my next addition! I literally rave about these beautiful people every time I visit them- my only complaint is that I can’t buy everything I like from them. And believe me, there’s a lot. They recently got in some Bamboo shoes, which is a brand that I love. I learned about this brand at Sassy and Southern, and they make some adorable shoes!
     
I’ll go ahead and cut this short here- suffice to say, they have some amazing selections that are fairly new. I definitely suggest looking around their gorgeous shop if you have the chance!
