Outfits Lately – Inspiration for Your Everyday Wardrobe

Yay for Friday and our quick trip to Magnolia Market in Waco!  I’ve wanted to go check it out for soooo long and since we’re only about 3 hours away, it’s about time we went! We’ll be celebrating “Spring at the Silos”, along with 10,000 of our best friends, I’m sure!  I’m a little nervous about how much we’ll get to enjoy with all the crowds and Jordan in tow, but I bet everyone else feels the same way! We’ll all just be happy to be there finally!  I’ll be sure to keep you posted on my Stories and share a recap when we get back. 
And today is Outfits Lately, a big ‘ole round up of what I’ve been wearing lately.  If you want more everyday outfit inspiration, I post my daily outfits on Instagram, which is what I’m rounding up for you here today.  These aren’t professionally styled photos, just selfies ? sharing my attempts to get out of jean shorts (it happens sometimes!) and get creative with the things in my closet.  

You can always shop my instagrams without LikeToKnowIt by clicking the picture on my blog right sidebar or the SHOP tab at the top of my blog under INSTAGRAM.  

For fit reference, keep in mind I’m ridiculously short, just 5’1, about 105 pounds.  I often wear petite or size down for the best fit for my frame, but I’m also busty, so that can be a challenging combo. 

Looking back, February and March have been big months with Jordan’s first birthday, my birthday, Valentine’s Day, James’ birthday, a bachelorette party, wedding, and Spring Break!  I need to go lie down for a month! 

Ripped Jeans (24) | Top XS | Sneakers | Crossbody Bag & Here on sale| Watch on sale | Similar Wrap Bracelet | Similar Initial Necklace 

Do ripped jeans and black sneaks say, “Monster Jam”?! ???  Here we come! ? ?  We took James to see all those monster trucks in action and he was in hog heaven.  I will say it was a fun time, just be sure to bring your earplugs.  This ripped jeans are a new fave, but I had to size down one size lower than my regular size.  The v-neck tee is an easy everyday fave that looks super cute with a little front tuck.


Floral Crop Pants XXS | Similar Tank | Similar Heels 

Hope y’all are having a great Saturday! ? Just tried on these tie-waist crop pants and fell in love! ? They’re the ones in my story with Jordan running around my heels – always! ?  They are soft and flowy with pockets and look super cute with just a tucked in tank and strappy heels! ?  XXS pictured. I ended up wearing this outfit to Jordan’s first birthday party.  See more pics and the pants styled with a jacket here.

Floral Dress XS | Similar Necklace | Similar Clutch | Heels | Similar Earrings 

This is the gorgeous floral dress I was planning to wear to the party, but practicality won out.  It’s so pretty with the coral and blue flowers, forgiving A-line shape, and silky smooth.  See more pics of this dress on and worn with my favorite jean jacket here.  
Jeans | Lace Top (Similar) | Old Strappy Sandals (New Version) | Necklace | Bag on sale
A lacey top with jeans and strappy sandals were the attire for my now sister-in-law’s bachelorette party.  We kept it low key with dinner out and drinks in City Centre- which I highly recommend if you’re in Houston. That’s where we were yesterday if you saw my Story! 

Striped Dress XS |  Similar Beaded Necklace | Similar White Bag | Pink Heels

I styled this snappy navy & white sheath dress for you 5 ways, including your most requested “wear to work” look here. It fits TTS, XS pictured, but I’m only 5’1, so unaltered, it hits just below my knee. It has a flattering scoop back too. ?  This bright Spring look was one of my faves.  I love this style heel so much, I have about 4 pair in different colors.  Just a classic, pretty heel that fits comfortably. 

Gingham Top XS

This was the top I wore out to my birthday lunch with the fam, but unfortunately Jordan projectile vomited all over it while we were out.  Luckily, she was just fine after and the shirt washed well. 


Ripped Jeans 24 | Top XSP | Strapless Bra | Heels | Sunglasses | Earrings | Crossbody Bag | Link Bracelet (similar for less) | Ring

Here’s a better look at those ripped jeans and the pink heels on.  The white off-shoulder top is darling and you can wear a strapless bra with it.  How fun are the tassel earrings too?!

Jeans | Top | Booties | Similar Necklace & Here | Similar Bracelets 

Felt so much like Spring here today! ?  I spent the day crossing off errands that have been on my ‘to do’ list forever! Now that I’m using Evernote to capture all those loose ends, the loose ends keep growing! ? At least they’re all in one place now! • These perforated peep toe booties (size down one) are a great transitioning to Spring item, cute ruffle sleeve top is only $35, and accessories are old, but I found similar for ya (under $25)! ?

Skinny Cargo Pants 0P | Striped Tank XSP | Perforated Booties (size down 1 size) | Crossbody Bag (on sale) | Similar Watch

Skinny cargo pants for the win!? This pair is super cute with pockets and look great cuffed with booties, flats or dressed up with strappy heels. They come in 7 colors (even pink and camo) regular & petite (0P) on me but still a tad big in the waist. 

Top XSP | Strapless Bra | Bootcut Jeans | Pink Heels | Necklace

Weeknight girls night out is a rare treat! ? We are so enjoying having @athoughtfulplace here, my kiddos adore her, and there’s nothing better than seeing your friend love on your kids! ❤

Those jeans again! ?  Well, they’re perfect for running errands in with sneakers and a lightweight, grey cold shoulder top. 


White Jeans (Similar for Less) | Button Down Top (2) | Old Sandals (New Version)
This button-down got me with the contrasting pattern and pretty blue color.  

Similar Jeans | Top (on sale) | Watch | Pink Flats 

I kept feeling like I should be embarrassed for running around in my slippers today, except they aren’t slippers- just feel like it! ? They fit TTS and even my poor bunion feet felt good in them! ?  

Cold Shoulder Top XSP | Jeans | Necklace | Peep Toe Booties

All the birthday parties are DONE and I’m gonna sleep for a week! ? Here’s a peek at my freshly painted closet – SherwinWilliams Alabaster. It’s nice and white and bright now, a fresh start! ✨But, it’s oil based paint and still smells! Do you have tips to remove the odor? I’ve tried vinegar in bowls, baking soda on the carpet, fabreeze. . . Help! It’s been a week! *UPDATE: I bought this on your recommendation and it worked wonders! 

Here’s the same look from my view:


White Jeans (Similar for Less) | Similar Sweater | Similar Sandals | Pink Bag

I’m loving breaking out the white jeans again, although I really do wear them year round, but definitely more often when the weather warms up.  This day was perfect for a light sweater and comfy flat sandals for running around in with Jordan.  You can see her bottle peeking out from my purse!

Tee XS | Shorts 00
This is that same pocket v-neck tee that I’m wearing in first pic.  It’s so soft and also comes in grey and white (which I’m sure I need!).  These cotton shorts are a style I like to wear even though they’re short.  They have pockets and a cute side embroidery. 


I felt so grateful that Courtney came all the way from California to Texas to visit me and the fam!  We had such a good time while she was here.  This pic was snapped on her first night here when I took her out for a drink at Tasting Room.  


Similar White Jeans Similar Tank Wedge Heels | Bag | Necklace | Earrings

I also got to have a lunch date with Veronika and Sara, which was a fun treat!  I love getting together with my girlfriends, and always leave these dates feeling so happy we made the effort to see each other in person.  It’s worth it!  My exact denim tank is old, so I linked a similar version.  I’m wearing them with my wedge heels that thankfully a reader emailed me to let me know were back in stock in my size! This pair is super cute too and on sale!

Dress 2PSimilar Heels | Similar Clutch

Here’s to the bride & groom ? with a special shout out to the handsome ring bearer! ? We love you Austin & Carrie! ?  I felt like the angels started signing when I tried on this dress!  ?   You know when you put something on and just feel great in it?!  My mom’s dress for the wedding was navy, so I was hoping to find something we’d coordinate in.  I love the asymmetric top and embellished bling at the shoulder.  The fabric is crushed taffeta and gives a nice texture to the dress.  I’m so happy you can’t see my strapless bra in it! I got it altered just a tad to bring up the length (it originally hit me just below the knee and took the waist in a smidge).  

Dang, it was chilly today, but my military jacket (on sale, under $50!) ? sure came in handy! It’s one of my most worn items with jeans, dresses, shorts, but size down bc it runs big. ?  Fingers crossed for warm, sunny temps tomorrow because Spring Break starts now! ☀️?? 


Floral Dress 40% off 

PSA // Sale Alert ? This darling one shoulder floral dress just went on sale 40% off! The print is gorgeous in person and the waist fits at the smallest part of your frame, creating an hourglass silhouette. Perfect for lunch, parties, weddings, graduation, Easter! Comes in regular & petite, 0P here. 


Capri Leggings | Tank (Similar with Criss Cross Back) | Sports Bra | Sneakers | No-Show Socks | Similar Watch 

Was all set to workout today, but these allergies/sinus/headcold are kicking my butt! ? These awesome blue capris will have to wait- they feel amazing on and the perforations are too cute! ? I also linked my fave ‘no show’ athletic socks that make these sneaks even comfier – and less smelly! ?? 


Top | Sweats | Bralette (M)

Wish I could stay in these cozies all day . . . ?  The sweatshirt runs big


Pajamas XS
Sometimes you just need a nice, quality pair of pajamas instead of a ratty old tee.  This pair is so pretty and come in lots of colors/patterns to choose from.


My Swimsuit | Similar Sunglasses | Visor | Jordan’s Rashguard (6-12 mos) | Baby Sunglasses

I think island life agrees with us! ??? 


Gingham Swimsuit Visor | Blue Aviators | Baby Swimsuit (24 mos)

Polka dots, ruffles, & gingham for Day #2. ?? This was Jordan’s first time at the beach and she loved it! Give her a bucket and a shovel and she’s good to go for hours. I need to teach her not to eat the sand though! ?#ick#nononono #donteatthat!!!Thanks @athoughtfulplace for Jordan’s darling swimsuit! ❤


Well, that’s a wrap for ya! I hope you have a great weekend! 
And Happy St. Patty’s Day! ?

    I'm not even sure where to begin with what I love here – the gingam sleeveless top, the stripes with turquoise necklace and blush top take the win! xo
