The day has finally come… it’s REVEAL DAY! It has been a dream to collaborate with Gibson clothing and my two blogger friends, Tara and Roselyn. I’m so incredibly excited to introduce my pieces from the City Safari collection because this collection was created with my style and readers in mind. You’ll find that each of these 4 pieces you’re going to see are exactly what you’ll be looking for this fall (animal print and flattering silhouettes for starters) and outfits that can take you from your 9-5 to the weekend.
You can shop it all exclusively at Nordstrom. To my latest knowledge, there will be no restocks so once it’s out of stock, it’ll be gone. Because of Nordstrom’s easy free shipping and returns, I always suggest buying the pieces you love when you see it so you don’t miss out. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s blog post where I style pieces from Tara and Roselyn’s collection (so many stunning pieces!).
In terms of sizing, I have found that Gibson runs slightly big in my experience. I sized down one from my usual size and wearing an extra small in all pieces. For reference, I am just under 5’7″.
I featured a sneak peak of this Smocked Maxi Dress on my stories last week and got a ton of messages from you guys asking when it would be linked. So for that, I thought it would only be fitting to talk about this beauty first! Prairie dresses are HUGE for fall. The silhouette is absolutely flattering and I love the contrast of short sleeves with the mock neck. It’s perfect for so many fall events or weddings. You can dress it up or down, and it’s also work appropriate which is a plus for my office girls. I mentioned that I sized down to an extra small in each of the pieces. However for this one in particular, if you wanted more of a billowy tucked out look in the front, I would stick with your normal size. It comes in 2 different prints and also in solid black.
You can style this dress with booties for fall or sandals in the weeks before it starts getting cold. Personally, I have no complaints about the length. In case you’re worried it may be too long for you, I wanted to share a Nordstrom hack that you guys should take full advantage of if you’re a Nordy member. Nordstrom provides free basic alterations on full-priced items. Yep! So that means if you needed to get this dress hemmed, you can easily do it without the hassle of finding or paying for a tailor. You can learn more about that here.

This jumpsuit is a great basic to have. It’s casual, effortless and comfy! We all have those days where we have a million things to do and it feels like we’re running around with our heads cut off. On top of the chaos, picking an outfit just adds to the stress. This piece is so good for women who are on the go every day from running carpool, errands, etc. and don’t want to think about “does this top match these pants?”. I’m thinking it would also make the perfect travel outfit as well. I love the adjustable waist and for cooler weather, just throw on your favorite denim jacket.
Another big trend for fall is animal print! As you guys know, I’m a huge fan of leopard and I know you guys are obsessed with it just as much as I am. It just wouldn’t have been right if this collection didn’t include it. This top also comes in zebra and two other really fun print for fall (the color palette is so pretty and unique). This piece is super versatile in that it can be worn for happy hour at the bar or for a day in the office. Depending how you style it, it can be even be worn to the office and worn straight to happy hour after! No need for any in between outfit changes.
Last but not least is this great basic off the shoulder top that comes in solid black. It would be a good option for a fun night out and it’s comfy too. As if it needed another selling point, black is flattering on anyone! Just a reminder, I’m wearing an extra small in this top as well as the other pieces featured.
This has been such an exciting experience and I hope you guys fall in love with the collection as I have. If you get your hands on any of these goodies, I would love to see and share it! Just tag or send me your pictures on social media. Your support is EVERYTHING! Thank you so much following along – love you guys!
