Outfits Lately | June 2017

Happy weekend friends!  I’m ready for it! How about you?  If you missed Jimmy’s Father’s Day recommendations, definitely go read it! He’s been loving all the extra attention and, he doesn’t know it yet, but I just ordered him #9 and I’m gonna put a bunch of #10 in it!  I can’t wait to see the expression on his face when he opens it!
And if it’s heating up in your part of the world and you need a new swimsuit, I did a big try-on and review for you here, so I hope that is helpful!


This morning I’m running off for a much overdue haircut, so let’s get right to today’s Outfits Lately post! Outfits Lately is 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 and Facebook, 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.  
For fit reference, keep in mind I’m super 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 (34D), so that can be a challenging combo. 


Today’s #OOTD😉 I’m happy to see this ruffle hem peplum top back in stock (several colors, but limited sizes since it’s under $30). It runs big, so size down, XSP.  My bootcut jeans fit like a glove (TTS, 25P) and elongate your leg when worn with heels. Soft and great wash too! They are designer, so I also linked a similar pair under $90 also. 

My kids already have summer fever bad! ?☀️They were bouncing off the walls today which makes me a little scared about how this summer is gonna go! ?? I’m already planning tomorrow’s date night look ? and will try not to squeal the tires as we pull out of the driveway! ??? These crop skinny jeans are actually crop length on a petite frame (wearing 25P), but they also come in regular. The cami is a great swing fit and comes in lots of colors for only $25! (US2). 

This outfit has Summer written all over it! The white distressed shorts are high-rise (size 00) so they keep you nice and tucked in, on sale for $35! The white distressed shorts are high-rise so they keep you nice and tucked in, and are on sale for $29! I saw that the sizes on these are limited though, so you might want to look at the BLANKNYC white cutoffs (which are the same brand as my favorite boyfriend jean shorts– I sized down 1 in those), or these STS white denim shorts with a raw hem.  That pair ($39) got great reviews for being comfortable and opaque with a little bit of stretch, but a couple reviewers said to size down.  I agree, I tried them on and would need a size 24.
Ruffle peplum top comes in 7 colors, reg & petite (XSP), my necklace is old from Stella and Dot so I linked one similar for only $12!  
Impromptu girl’s night out!!! On a Wednesday! #saywhat?! We’re seeing Snatched at IPIC where you sit in a pod with a blanket and food! I’ve never been, so I’m excited!! Wearing a printed SKORT. It’s super cute with pockets and also comes in solids too. Tunic top is on sale only $28 and comes in lots of colors.  Looks great untucked with leggings and skinny jeans too!
Another day, another adorable maxi! ☺️ This one is old but still available 25% off (under $40) in solid blue, black, grey and bright pink. It runs true to size and with my wedge heels I didn’t have to get it altered! #petitefriendly
Top XS | Joggers XS | Shoes | Bag | Bracelet
Pretty much the perfect outfit for running errands today!These joggers are soft and lightweight and make me want to get them in the black and navy also! They run true to size with front zip pockets and back pockets too with a super comfy wide waistband. 
Blush pink vibes!  I was hoping these sneakers would be as comfortable as they are cute, and they are! I usually wear a 6 or 6 1/2 in athletic shoes and I went with the 6 in these bc I wear thin ‘no show’ socks. Linked those too and the awesome jean shorts you can’t see! 

I’m already reverting to my simple, everyday summer favorite outfit – a soft tee, jean shorts and flip flops! When it gets even hotter here in Houston, I’ll change out tee for my fave $18 tank. Below is a good description of these jean shorts.
Alright friends, my jean shorts search is over! This is the updated version of my trusty old faves in this ripped, boyfriend style.The fit is loose and casual & I’m in size 24 (5’1, 105 for fit reference). I’m giddy excited about this, considering I wear jean shorts on an embarrassingly often frequency.  Tee is awesomely soft too! XXS
School’s out for summer! ☀️??‍?James was voted Most Likely To Be Telling a Joke ??‍♂️? Recent fave: why does a golfer wear two pairs of pants? In case he gets a hole-in-one! Celebrating our summer break with dinner out! #ofcourseitsFriday ?#cooking • Wearing the best boyfriend jeans (on sale $53), TTS (0P) and a striped bodysuit! (XS) 
FriYAY! ? It’s been a long week, and I’m ready to let someone else do the cooking tonight! ? First time getting to wear this super soft ruffle sleeve top too. ? Comes in lots of colors, but this ❤ is pretty! It runs big, so size down;) On sale under $30!
8 loads of laundry ✔️ grocery store ✔️ and half of tomorrow’s blog post ✔️ Now off to celebrate our boys and one heck of a baseball season! They played so hard and we loved watching them hustle out there! Wearing comfy ($59) skinnies & my fave 3/4 boatneck top and it’s only $26.  Love it so much I have it in 3 colors, but the other colors, especially the pinks, are on my list.
Lately I’ve been trying to up my tank top game and this one (under $20) and the two below are both super cute!
You say this aqua ruffle tank all styled up here and the below tank is the same one I wore in our family photos that I just got framed at Mpix.
New mom uniform on repeat lately! ? Comfy and cute for chasing after my sweet photo ?! These boyfriend jeans are a refreshing change from my beloved skinny jeans and on sale for $53! They run TTS and come in regular and petite. And this pleat peplum tank is ?!! Will look great with white jeans and shorts too! 
Headed #ootd to lunch with @hauteandhumid ???These girlfriend lunches are always a breath of fresh air! Still loving #allthegingham! And these under $90 bootcut jeans that give even us shorties legs for days! ?? 
Top XS | Jeans 25P | Necklace | Booties | Coil Ring | Necklace 
I adore this white perforated top for a dinner out with the girls.  It’s off the shoulder, so you’ll need this strapless bra, but it’s got a slim lining underneath and is machine washable.
These skinny cargo pants that I’ve been running around in so much lately are so good! They are a super comfortable fit with a good bit of stretch and you can dress them up with booties and wedges or run around in sneakers and flats! ? They come in lots of colors and regular and petite! 
Sometimes you opt for something a little different to mix it up! I wore this outfit out to dinner and felt so comfortable in the pants- great for indulging in dessert without feeling like you have to suck in!
This midi dress has been a go-to because it’s so easy to wear and you feel like a million bucks in it!  The material is nice and thick and stretchy and you can wear a regular bra with it! You know I’m crazy for the Perfect T-Shirt bra, which is what I have on.  I had to cut 5 inches off the length because I’m such a shorty.  It also comes in light pink and black!

ANN TAYLOR | 40% off pants, skirts and shorts and they have some super cute dresses, especially perfect for work, church or a dressy lunch date.  I adore this classy wrap-style dress that comes in 3 colors and regular, tall and petite- and in this understated floral print.

BANANA REPUBLIC | Mens’ shirt sale and I’m crazy for BR pants (in so many colors and patterns) are on sale too and I’ve always found them to be good quality that lasts when I was working and wore them often.   They have new styles since I’ve worn them, but I have the Sloan and love them in 2P.

GAP |  40% off until noon.  Definitely get these soft, cozy pants if you don’t have them already! I can’t wait to slip into mine every night and I wear size XS.  They come in maternity too and will be your BFF if you’re expecting! 

LOFT | 50% off dresses, tees, tanks and crop pants with so many cute things for Spring!  This floral lace and striped top is fun!
