Addison Bay x Grace
I couldn’t be more excited about today’s launch… my collaboration with Addison Bay! Working with Addison Bay has been an absolute dream, and is such an organic fit. As with every good partnership, there’s a story here! A couple years ago, I bought their Everyday Pullover (affectionately nick-named the Rich Aunt Pullover, I think I came up with that name for it while slightly hungover at my niece’s “Special Friend Day” at school as she played with the gold zippers.) I linked it in stories and immediately sold a ton of them. So I emailed the brand to tell them, and a relationship was born.
I found myself wearing more and more Addison Bay in my everyday life (from workouts to pickleball to long flights, but also: easy day dresses!). About a year after that, they approached me about designing a collection. And now, nearly a year after that, here we are with a full blown collection.
Addison Bay is my favorite for easy pieces that feel luxurious and special. I wanted my collection to feature my favorite color, a deep forest green (British Racing Green to be exact). I knew we needed to include some orange (when I did my Chappywrap collection that was the first to sell out!), and there had to be stripes… a few matching sets, and lots of dresses. The collection runs true to size, I am wearing my usual size medium in each piece.
The end result is a 13 piece capsule collection that will take you from yoga to errands to the beach and out to cocktails with friends. So I hope you love it as much as I do.
I want to talk about the activewear. I love Addison Bay’s activewear and it was important to me to have a few active looks in the collection. And I wanted it to be pieces you could wear to coffee with a friend and then to a workout class.
I love this bra! I like that it is a longer silhouette (covers more of the mid section). It is so comfortable and perfect for lower impact activities. The best part: it’s reversible, meaning you can pair it with either pair of leggings from the collection.
Everyday Leggings in Racing Green and Navy Blue:
Just the best leggings. Perfect for yoga, errands, everything! I love the striped waist band. It pairs so well with the Logan Bra or if you want a little more coverage, an easy tee or tank. I love how a tee looks tucked in.. you can see the stripes!
Everyday Pullover in Racing Green:
My original Addison Bay favorite. I probably wear this pullover at least once a week, probably more. I also have it in cream, pink, and navy blue. The length is just right, the gold zippers can be left zipped, unzipped, or halfway zipped… it is truly the perfect pullover. The other thing I love it is that the shoulders are slightly structured which gives a nice shape. It’s more polished than a sweatshirt, but more comfortable.
If the Everyday Pullover is the “Rich Aunt Pullover,” then this is our “Casual Aunt Pullover.” It has a drop puff sleeve and a more relaxed fit. This works just as easily over the bra and leggings or tucked into jeans. It’s incredibly versatile (and so soft!!).
This set is my favorite in the collection.
The Delancey Pullover and Quince Shorts.
I don’t like to play favorites but I just love this so much. It is fun, comfortable, and my go-to whether I am out and about or hanging at home. I love the navy and orange combo, the contrasting stripes, the navy striped waistband. The fabric is pretty special too. I have other Addison Bay sets like this that are in more of a cotton/sweatshirt material, this has a sleeker fabric… similar to neoprene!
And if you are feeling like it, you can layer the set with Classic Short Sleeve in Fire Orange Stripe.
It’s your perfect easy t-shirt. I love the drapy fabric and it’s long enough to tuck in. This one has a looser silhouette; if you want it to be more fitted, size down!
There are three dresses in the collection and this one is probably my favorite (or at least the one I wear the most). White dresses are a staple in my closet and this is one you will reach for again and again. I love the cutaway tank, the breezy skirt, and it has pockets! On a practical note, I machine washed this and hung it up to dry and was thrilled/shocked to see it didn’t need to be ironed!
This is the definition of throw on and go. I find myself wearing while working at home but also out running errands. Simultaneously it works for playing pickle ball or a trip to the beach! It is made of that same neoprene-ish fabric as the pullover and shorts, which means a) no wrinkles, and b) a bit more polish than your standard zip-up.
We needed a dressier matching set. I have so many colorful sets in my life but none in white! This is a new favorite. It’s the perfect blank canvas for whatever you choose to pair it with (pile up the gold jewelry and pair with heels for drinks, go with flat sandals and a straw tote for a more casual look). I love this. The top has a wider neckline and the pants are the perfect cropped length. I am 5’8 and these hit the ankle at just the right spot! Added bonus: the fabric refuses to wrinkle, making it ideal for longer work days and/or flights!
Last but not least, the Grace Dress!
Oh my goodness I love this dress. It’s an easy breezy midi dress, with those perfect racing green stripes. A flutter sleeve at the right length, this is the best little day dress. It’s made from that same fabric as the Tradd Set and Sullivan Dress — it refuses to wrinkle, which is perfect for those of us who are busy! I wore this on a flight and then straight out to dinner.
