Weekend Steals & Deals | Colorful Skinny Jeans

We're calling week #1 of summer vacation a success over here and already looking forward to the weekend!  I captured our easy morning and evening summer routines if you missed it, and the 10-Minute pick-up at the end of the day seems to be the best thing ever, even though it's such a quick, simple thing.  Since our weather looks clear and sunny today, you'll find me and James at the pool.  Now, it's starting to feel like summer!!  What are y'all up to this weekend?  



I'm still loving dresses for summer and just ordered the second one below!

Trixxi Chevron Print Maxi $38.90
How cute is this chevron maxi?! Perfect color combo too!

Nordstrom had tons of maxi dresses under $50 - great price!

Loveappella V-Neck Maxi Dress $68 (regular & petite)
Loveappella V-Neck Maxi Dress $68 (regular & petite)
Can't wait for this beauty to arrive!

ASTR Embroidered Strapless Dress $38.40
Isn't this a sweet dress?!  Just wear a bandeaux bra with it and you're good to go! 

Gabby Skye Graphic Print Dress $58.80
I'm crazy over the colors in this dress. 

Maggy London Print Faux Wrap Dress
Maggy London is a favorite brand, their clothing is quality and chic.  You could keep this dress neutral or liven it up with colorful accessories.

Maggy London Print Jersey Wrap Dress $58.80
Bow down to the wrap dress!  Pretty much universally flattering and comfortable.  


I don't know about you, but I love a romper in the summer.  I don't shop Forever21 too often because I always think their things are for teenagers, but then I realized I often shop the juniors section at Nordstrom with success, so I should give it a try.  They do have some really cute stuff there and you can't beat the prices for things you may only want to wear for a couple seasons.  

I was happily surprised with some of my F21 things I ordered online.  I think maybe shopping in the store is what I don't like.  I know I'm old(er), but it seems like it's really loud and overwhelming in there.  But, I found their site easy to shop because it loads fast and they have good pictures with lots of images.  The selection is better online too. 

I already wore one of the rompers that arrived. It's under $20! 

Summer Rompers

My F21 romper reminded me of this one I saw at Nordstrom.

Summer Rompers - One Clothing Print Romper

I really wanted to love this 3/4 sleeve crochet-paneled gauze romper, but it didn't work out for me.  Maybe if you're not so short like me, it would be cuter! I liked the top part, just not the shorts.

I was actually pretty smitten with F21's selection of embroidered tops.  I'll have to show you a few keepers that I haven't photographed soon!  I found that my regular size XS fit best, the Smalls were too big.  I'm 5'0, about 107 pounds.

Summer Outfit - Floral Embroidery Top and Jean Shorts
Here's a F21 top I'm loving with the embroidered detail.  The arm holes are a little large, so be sure to wear a bra you don't mind showing.  There are lots of sweet bra-peeking-through options now

Weekend Steals & Deals | NYDJ Clarissa Stretch Skinny Ankle Jeans
NYDJ Clarissa Stretch Skinny Ankle Jeans $110, $72.90 (regular & petite) - 300 reviews, 4 stars

These NYDJ skinny ankle jeans come in so many fun colors and are 33% off!  I have them and they are little more high-wasted than most jeans these days.  I can appreciate that and actually love how they fit and feel, but you may hate it.  Just  be forewarned.  Maybe order them in your regular size and one size down, and take advantage of free returns if they don't work out. 

I'm showing them with a crop top here so you can see the where the waist sits better.  See how they actually come up over your rear in the back?! Nice! I feel like I should buy a few new colors!  But, which ones?!?!

  1. All of these outfits are so gorgeous, would love to own them for the summertime!

    The Gift of Gab |

  2. Always buy NYDJ a size down for best fit. They stretch, ALOT, when wearing. At first they may seem "too" tight, but trust me, after a few minutes of wear they are perfect. Love all their new colors. Super cute rompers too. Don't usually work for me as I am long waisted, but they are fun.

  3. Please tell me where you got the gold ring you're wearing. I love it!

  4. I noticed the blue romper has an open back. Did you try it with any pretty bralettes? I love it, but I'm concerned about the bra situation.

  5. I love all those gorgeous weekend steals. My favourites are: Trixxi Chevron Print Maxi, F21 Floral embroidery top and the Michael Kors Wedges. I am in Australia and we are heading into the cold winter, this post has me craving Summer time!
