Soft Surroundings – Part 1 of 3

Fashion Trends and Friends were thrilled to receive an email asking if we’d be interested in collaborating with Soft Surroundings…well let us think about it – YES!  Cindy, Lori and I were asked if we’d like to pick a top, pants, jewelry item and shoes from the Soft Surroundings Fall Transition Line.  How fun and exciting is that?!  We jumped at the opportunity!

I chose the Bermondsey top.  This deftly draped knit top creates a subtly chic look with understated fashion details. Pearly buttons collect gathers along the side, with a gentle cowl boatneck and long sleeves.  It comes in the five colors shown.

Soft Surroundings 5 Pocket Pull on Leggings in the sand-washed denim was my pant choice.   Look at all the amazing colors they come in and with just the right amount of stretch they are super duper comfortable!  They sit just below your natural waist. After wearing mine all day, they did not stretch out and bag like others do becoming too large!

This stunning necklace presents a one-of-a-kind gift of Nature – a gold-encased pendant of sliced blue agate druzy, a gemstone associated with creativity and strength. Mingled with shimmering crystal and intricate gold-like beads handwoven on linen thread, grey feldspar also brings balance and flexibility. I’m going to be able to wear it with so many outfits!  It’s quit the statement piece.

Moto-inspired suede booties have all the requirements for a cool modern edge, like laser-cut perforations and a strappy harness with silver studs, to a scalloped top and rounded toe. A chunky stacked wood heel, synthetic lining and man-made sole complete this fast-track Vince Camuto design in all-purpose taupe. 1″ heel. These booties are buttery soft and super comfortable!  They will be on major repeat all fall and winter!  To say I love everything about them is an understatement! LOL

Lori and I met up to exchange sizes on a couple of items and low and behold a shopping excursion emerged…I know you’re shocked!  The sales associates were so helpful!  The store itself has a warm, inviting and friendly atmosphere. Soft Surroundings was already a favorite of FTFs so this was simply a reminder of why!

Other Favorites and Purchases:

(Please disregard our bare feet in these pictures – LOL!)

Two textures, one terrific tunic. On top, a soft woven overlay ends in a modern asymmetrical hem – and that’s where the light chiffon underlayer begins, offering silky contrast.  Lori and I both loved this top (it comes in three colors) and it pairs perfect with my Patience Necklace. 

I’m wearing Soft Surroundings Metro Leggings!  Lori and I give them two thumbs up for comfort, figure flattering and holding their shape!

I had to have the Aurora Velvet Topper!  The soft material, rich details, comfort and trend factor were all pluses in my book!  I think it looks great with the cream top shown above.  However, I chose to pair it with the Celine Tunic, which comes in seven colors.  The asymmetrical high-low hem adds additional visual interest.

Another successful shopping adventure complete!

Fun on a Photo Shoot:

A special thank you to my hubs, Len!  He’s always willing to take my photos, but the problem is he thinks I look beautiful in all of them.  Therefore, he feels as though one and done is a good thing.  Truth be told the delete button is my friend.  This is the hardest part of blogging – decent pictures!



Being one with the geese and avoiding all of their poop…  LOL

Worshiping the Sun god and Mother Nature…

Ummmm…I have no idea!  What remotely even says I’m ready for my picture to be taken?  Nice face…LOL

Hope you got a good laugh!

In all seriousness, FTF followers please come back next week for part two of our three part series.  Next week, Lori will feature her Soft Surroundings outfits and the following week Cindy will share hers.
