Gibsonlook x Hi Sugarplum Happy Place Collection
It’s here the Gibsonlook x Hi Sugarplum spring Happy Place collection has launched on Gibsonlook.com. I am so excited to help share this amazing collection that is perfect for any and all events this spring and summer. This collection just screams HAPPY with soft fabrics, mix-and-match items for versatility, elevated casual mom attire, and just enough flirty ruffles to have me smiling with joy!
The collection will be launched on Gibson’s own website which means affordable price points, incredible customer service, and a discount!! Use code RYANNE15 and get 15% off the entire collection!
I am a size 10/36DD top and typically in Gibson tops I can be a M or L depending on fit/ stretch and typically L/12 in Gibson bottoms. The bottoms in this collection are true to size and the tops are running slightly tight in the chest so I’ve had to size up to L in most. I am 5’5 and in-between a petite and regular on length in most pants and skirts depending on fit, this collection is all regular length and it’s perfect for my height.
- Paradise Tiered Maxi Skirt true to size, L (unlined)
- Cavallo Halter Top this runs large but sizing down to the M made it tight across the chest soI would say I’m pretty much in-between sizes (lined)
- Bring On The Happy Cropped Pant true to size, L (unlined)
- Sunnyside Ruffle Sleeve V-Neck Top size up for larger chest, L is perfect (lined)
- Bonita Life Racerback Jumpsuit size down if in-between in a L but has some breathing room
- Blissful Blouson Sleeve V-Neck Dress true to size, L (unlined)
- Positively Poplin Roll Tab Shirt size up if in-between, L
- Cheerful Chambray Roll Tab Shirt size up if in-between, L
- Scoop Back Bodysuit true to size, L
Items I did not receive:
- Playa All Day High Waist Short I would order in L, these are high waisted
- Happy Place Chiffon Ruffle Neck Dress friends indicated true to size I would get a L
Sunnyside Ruffle Sleeve V-Neck Top
I’m starting with this ruffle v neck top because it’s my ABSOLUTE favorite from the collection. In this pink I’m wearing a medium and it fit pretty tight across the chest, luckily I also got the white in a size large and was able to see that it’s perfect! This new fabric of the collection is an amazing soft woven material that is soft and pretty all at the same time.
This is lined in the front and single layer in the back with a great longer length that can be dressed up or down. Obviously I’m partial to the pink but the white is classic and gorgeous as well!
Another reason I love this top is that it can easily be dressed up for Spring time events. While I know that every state is different we are excited to have both sets of grandparents fully vaccinated and I’ll be getting my 2nd shot on Thursday. I’m ready for parties, events and all the things but I know that the mask accessory will still be around for a bit longer so I wanted to show, “hey I can still look cute with my ruffle top, mask and stretchy “going out” pants“.
Truly the 2020/ 2021 outfit of the year right here! (well except the heels I know many of you are still sporting the slippers and no judgement okay!)
Cavallo Halter Top
The second top I styled for a dressy casual event is this Cavallo Halter Top. This top has been a favorite from Cassie’s collections in the past and is back in this gorgeous blue color in a woven material. This style is lined in the front and back making it so flowy and flattering but without the clinginess.
Although we NEED to talk about fit!! I am wearing this top in a large and it was VERY billowy and big in the armholes. I was lucky enough for my friends at Gibsonlook to send me a medium replacement and DOH it was too tight across the chest (and yes I tried several bras to tame the girls) all in all I’m keeping the large but will do a slight alteration to the side to bring in the armholes.
If you are not larger chested then stick true to size no issue, if you are larger chested I would say size up and know that you might need some slight adjustments.
Scoop Back Bodysuit & Paradise Tiered Maxi Skirt
I can say that last year I fell in love with a bodysuit, but that’s because I had no idea that anyone made one that was full booty coverage and worked with real bra straps. Cassie and the Gibsonlook team is ALWAYS thinking of us!! This year they have made this cult favorite in the perfect hot pink, light pink, black and cream. Some of the lighter colors can be slightly sheer since this is a thinner stretchy fabric so just FYI.
This maxi skirt has all the best of her previous skirts but without the added bulk. The sizing on this is perfection in a large, not too big or tight and with the back elastic it’s a very comfortable fit. This has pockets and a flat front making it slimming while comfy.
Bonita Life Racerback Jumpsuit
I’m pretty sure I got addicted to Gibsonlook and the Hi Sugarplum collections 8 collections ago with the original Bonita ruffle back tank. I bought pretty much every color and wore them ALL spring and summer! Each collection has had a variation of the OG ruffle back tank but I’m gonna say it this is my FAVORITE!!
This jumpsuit mixes the cute summer feel of the Racerback ruffle with soft jersey material (hello dress of 2019) mixed with 2020 loungewear of a one piece wide leg, cropped fit jumpsuit with pockets!!! Y’all it’s the perfect day date to nap time outfit, yes naps are good!
I sized up to a Large in this style to ensure that the waistband was not too tight around the belly and it perfect. I love that there is plenty of fabric for my tall gals long torsos and for us compact chics I can blouse up the top more and it stays put (aka no hammer pant crotch going on).
Positively Poplin Roll Tab Shirt & Bring On The Happy Cropped Pant
To be honest I was VERY concerned with these cropped pants, I thought ok Cassie can pull off this high waist, flat front, thin pant but I’m gonna look HUGE. Here’s the thing, I got put this on and said wow I kinda look good. I strutted, I danced, Audrie said I can kinda see your belly but I don’t hate it and honestly I didn’t either.
These pants pushed me out of my comfort zone but the soft flowy fabric, fun cropped wide leg and perfectly placed pockets kind made me fall in love. NOW I did try these on with a few other tops tucked in and YEAH not for me but with a cute tied perfectly crisp white top I’m here for it.
Have to pause and talk about this amazing shirt!! I have MAJOR issues with button front tops (as many larger chested ladies do). This one has a hidden button placket with perfectly placed buttons and a cute small pocket on the front. I love the roll tab option and longer length.
This has enough fabric to front tie, leave loose or do a cute front tuck any way I’m loving this is white AND I grabbed the blue so head to my Instagram stories to see that style.
Blissful Blouson Sleeve V-Neck Dress
Now I don’t think it can be a Cassie collection without a cute flirty dress (or 2) I picked this v neck style since with a larger chest I feel more comfortable in this fit vs a high neck. This has a cute A-line shape with tiered ruffles and a tie waist. It’s fully lined throughout and I love the elastic half sleeve because it’s hot but I don’t always want to have to shave my underarms (hey now it’s the truth!)
Thank you so much to the Gibsonlook team and to Cassie for including me once again in this collection launch. I owe all the HAPPY laughs and dances to my amazing photographer Audrie Dollins (and my daughter dancing, making faces and laughing in the background). Hope this collection makes you as happy as it does me!
