Outfits Lately – July

Woo hoo for Friday!  Now that we’re almost at the end of July, I’m suddenly realizing just how little is left of our summer break.  James goes back to school in a little over 2 weeks!  Nooooooo!  I’m so not ready for that, so I’m definitely gonna milk these last couple weeks!  When do your kids go back to school?

Today’s Outfits Lately post 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 and pics out and about sharing my attempts to get out of jean shorts (it happens sometimes!) and get creative with the things in my closet. I hope you find it helpful for your own wardrobe!

For fit reference, keep in mind I’m super short, just 5’1, about 105, 110 pounds (there’s been a lot of ice cream lately!) #summer  I often wear petite or size down for the best fit for my frame, but I’m also busty (34D) with ‘athletic’ i.e. big legs, so that can be a challenging combo.

blue maxi dress

Blue Maxi Dress  XS ⋅ Best Strapless Bra ⋅ Yellow Suede Clutch ⋅ Aviators

This is a great value maxi dress at under $40! I have it in a print, but couldn’t resist picking up this one while they were on sale. I have XS in both, but there is some inconsistency in the length. I had to get a couple inches trimmed off this one, the length on my printed one was fine after a machine wash and dry. The shoulder straps are adjustable, which I appreciate because I am able to pull the top up to fit me perfectly.
