Help me revitalize my spring/summer wardrobe!
June 9, 2018 11:35 AM   Subscribe

I just bought this dress from Thief and Bandit. Not explicitly springy/summery but I love the look of some of their other items: (dresses, skirts, leggings!) Help me find more stores and more stuff like it!

Around a similar price point or under would be ideal, and I can't afford to go crazy and buy a whole new wardrobe all at once, but I'm looking for nicer stuff than I ordinarily have. I tend to go extremely casual, which is easy since I work from home, but sometimes I have to go into the office in two major U.S. cities and realize I have nothing to wear. I don't necessarily care about going super professional, but don't always want to rock the jeans and t-shirt look when I go out!

Dresses and skirts with nice patterns (I am SO into T&B's animal patterns) and/or color schemes like Thief and Bandit are what I'm looking for. I don't have much in the way of tops to wear with dresses either. Machine washable is also a HUGE plus because I am horrible at handwashing or getting my stuff dry cleaned. All suggestions welcome! I'm 5'4", 27, and tend to look young, so I try to dress to counteract that.

So cute! Reminds me a lot of Anthropologie like this one, this one, or this one (a romper, but with zebras!).

Modcloth has a lot of fun patterns. I've had quite a lot of luck with their clothes, and free returns for any misses. Quality varies by brand, but I've gotten lots of items that have worn well with heavy usage.

try Birds of North America - they have some similar prints and colours.

Samantha Pleet also has prints in a similar vein - it's a slightly higher price point than T&B though.

Family Affairs. Not necessarily their current stuff, but their sale section!

There's a seller on Etsy with a similar vibe: SimkaSol. You might also like MaryInk.

Asos.com has lots of patterned clothing in a wide price range. You may have to sort through a fair amount though. I have to order a size down on the US site.
