Welcome to the weekend friends! This week seemed to fly by which is fine by me because I’m ready for the weekend for sure!

On Wednesday, I chopped about 4 inches off of my hair and I feel like a new woman!  The front and sides were much shorter than the back, so we evened it out. It always feels so good to get a fresh cut and now my hair feels fuller and like it has more volume. Plus, it’s easier to fix, which is definitely a bonus! If you’d like me to do an updated hair tutorial for this shorter length hair let me know!

Don’t forget, TRIPLE POINTS at Nordstrom ends Sunday, so take advantage of that this weekend!  My stripe off-shoulder top is on sale 40% off!

Cold Shoulder Top XXS • Jeans • Flip Flops • Similar Bag • Earrings • Initial Necklace • Nail Color


Last week’s This & That featured some great finds and a few try-ons that are on BIG sale this weekend!!!

For size reference, I’m super petite, 5’1, 105-110, 34D.  I usually wear 0P or 25 in jeans and XS or 0P tops.


Dressing Room Fit and Review - red v-neck pocket tank and skinny jeans

V-Neck Pocket Tank • Jeans

This simple V-neck pocket tank has quickly become a Spring and Summer wardrobe staple in my closet! I have the black and white one, but isn’t this vibrant red pretty?!

FIT : TTS,  wearing XS (looser fit)

Stripe V-Neck Pocket Tank • Jeans

 And it’s even sweeter in stripes!

FIT : TTS, wearing XXS (fitted). I prefer the more fitted look, so I bought XXS, but I’ll hang dry so they don’t shrink. 

Dressing Room Fit and Review - white button down peplum top

Peplum Button-Up Blouse

It doesn’t get more classic then a crisp white button down blouse, but I love the modern take on this one with ruffled sleeves and a peplum hem.


White & Blue Eyelet Top on sale! 

Double ruffled sleeves and blue embroidery make this top extra special!  It definitely came home with me!

FIT : TTS, 00

White Wrap Top on sale! 

This three-quarter sleeve wrap top with a little tie at the bottom might just be my favorite of all! It comes in tons of colors and the banded hem makes it a perfect top to wear with your A-lined skirts.


Dressing Room Fit and Review - white crochet off shoulder top

White Blouse • Jeans

For a date night or night out, this off shoulder white top with crochet embroidery really makes a statement!  It’s got an elastic waist and three-quarter sleeves! #thosesleeves


Tie Sleeve Top

This v-neck chambray top has the cutest detail in the tie sleeve! The v is plunging, but still doesn’t really expose.  It’s super soft on and would look great with your white jeans and wedges or sandals.


Dressing Room Fit and Review - black eyelet top

 Twist-Front Eyelet Top • Jeans

I’m so fond of eyelet this season and I found a couple really cute black eyelet tops. This one is short sleeve with a twist in the front. I’d wear it with a black bra!


Dressing Room Fit and Review - black eyelet top w 3/4 sleeves and peplum hem

Eyelet Ruffle Top 40% off

The eyelet pattern on this top is really darling with circles! The neckline on this top makes it the perfect backdrop for showing off a statement necklace or long pendant necklace.  Of course I love the three-quarter sleeves and peplum hem.


Blue Stripe Shirttail Tank 40% off

The thing that’s so special about this tank top, aside from the pretty blue color and stripes!, Is the mixed media fabric! It’s silky soft in the front and like a T-shirt material in the back! Cute, right?!

Tie-Waist Stripe Top • White Skinny Jeans 40% off

This stripe tie waist top is definitely a keeper!  I love the relaxed fit and drawstring waist that keeps it from ballooning out, and the coral color is so playful!

FIT : Runs a tad bit, XXSP

You’ve seen these white double-frayed hem jeans before- but they are so good, I keep wearing them!

Dressing Room Fit and Review - white racerback top with 3 1/2 inch stripe shorts

This white top is also silky soft and has a darling thin racerback. It’s got a banded waist and it looks really cute with shorts, skirts and jeans!


Now that summer is almost here, I’m looking for more shorts because it gets so hot here and we can’t go outside in jeans! This linen blend pair is great with a 3 1/2 inch rise and pockets.

FIT : TTS, 00


Dressing Room Fit and Review - Madewell 9 inch crop raw hem jeans

9-Inch High Rise Skinny Crop Jeans

I feel like Madewell really knows how to make jeans. Have you tried them? They’re onto something with their 9 and 10 inch high rise. The 10 inch is a little bit too much on me, but this 9 inch pair is perfect! These have a deconstructed “chewed” hem and are a little long on me so I will cut them,  but the fit is so good!  They tuck in your middle, hug your curves perfectly without gaping in the waist, and also make your booty look good!  

FIT : Runs slightly big, I sized down from 25 to 24.

Dressing Room Fit and Review - Express grey tee shirt with jeggings

Strappy Neck Tee • Jeans

A nice budget friendly jegging type jean I recently found were these at Express!  They are a mid-rise with a dark wash and felt good on.  I like the weight of these jeans that are thicker than your typical jegging because they feel more substantial in like a real jean.  And they’re Buy 1, Get 1 for $29!

FIT : TTS, Comes in regular, short and long. Wearing 25.

The tee is so soft and comfortable with a bit of sass in the strappy neck detail.


Stripe Camp Shirt • Distressed Jeans 40% off

I’ve actually had these distressed jeans for a while but haven’t shown them here lately so they are worth another peek (especially since they’re 40% off!!) The color and distressing is just right and they fit like a dream!

FIT : TTS, wearing 0P.

I’m sure this top will be on repeat around here!  It’s cut to be tied in the front and is relaxed and casual enough to wear every day with jeans, Jean shorts or regular shorts.   The straight colors are fresh but not too sweet.

FIT : TTS, wearing XS

Pink Girlfriend Chinos 40% off Knit Top 50% off

If you’re looking for an alternative to jeans, you have to try these girlfriend chinos! They are very soft and comfortable on!  When I do these dressing room posts, if I try something on and don’t want to take it off I know it’s a winner! That’s how I felt about these! I also like this dusty rose color because it’s pretty and different.  You can wear it with neutral tops, but also stripes or patterns that pull in a pink color.

FIT: TTS, wearing 0P.

The stitchy scallop hem knit top is adorable and 50% off!

FIT: runs small, wearing US4


Dressing Room Fit and Review - white eyelet v-neck dress

White Eyelet Dress 00

Just as I’m obsessed with white eyelet in a top, I found it in a dress!  This would be so cute for a wedding shower, baby shower or nice brunch.

FIT : TTS, but I think it’s meant for less busty women because it was a little tight across my chest. I’m 34D. 

Dressing Room Fit and Review - Madewell denim sundress

Denim Summer Dress

It’s hard to tell from the photo, but this chambray sundress has spaghetti straps that are adjustable. If it weren’t so roomy in the hips, I would have gotten it because I think it’s so cute!



Stripes • Chambray • Gingham XS

One of each, please!  This little budget friendly sundress comes in so many fun patterns and colors that it’s hard to decide on one!  The straps are adjustable and it has a hook and eye in the front to keep the top closed. I came home with the gingham one! But, now I’m missing the others!

FIT : runs a little small, wearing XS

Dressing Room Fit and Review - Striped swing dress with pockets $35

Stripe Pocket Tank Dress

At $35, you’ll definitely want to scoop up this stretchy swing dress before it sells out! It’s lightweight with pockets and you can run around on the weekends in it or even wear it as a swimsuit cover-up! After this week’s photo shoot, I came home and threw it on and was so comfortable the rest of the day!  It also comes in solid gray and black.

TIP : The black one is perfect for throwing on after you get a spray tan so you don’t mess up your color!


Dressing Room Fit and Review - blue gingham wrap dress

Blue Gingham Wrap Dress

On special request, I found a few dressier dresses for those of you attending graduations, weddings, or other events you want to get dressed up for.  This blue gingham dress is my first choice because the color is vibrant and the style is so flattering!  It’s a faux wrap with a high low hem and ties on the side.  You’d be able to dance or sit on the sidelines enjoying your cocktail all night in this one!


Dressing Room Fit and Review - blue crochet dress

Blue Lace Dress

I wish I had gotten to try this dress on in my true size because it’s a stunner! It is so chic and classy and the color is gorgeous in person!  It feels like it’s really well made with attention to detail and is fully lined.

Teal Ruffle Hem Dress

Finally, the unique mint color drew me to this one, and I think it would look stunning with a crystal statement necklace and nude heels!

For a more casual outing, ruffles and stripes are too cute on this off-shoulder dress! Wear it with this strapless bra and you will be good to go all day without any fidgeting or pulling! It’s the best strapless bra I’ve ever owned and lasts forever. It fits true to size.


Dressing Room Fit and Review - yellow and white crochet dress

Lace Overlay Dress

I felt so mod in this yellow dress with white crochet overlay, which goes perfectly with all the Mad Men episodes I’ve been rewatching lately!  In the right size, it would be darling for a day party!

FIT : TTS, wearing 2p, need 0P

Dressing Room Fit and Review - blue check fit and flare dress
