Woo hoo friends!! Happy Friday! I’m always so excited for the weekend and especially this one because we’re celebrating one of my very best friend’s 50th birthday! We’ve been friends for about 20 years! It’s wild to say that!! I guess that means I’m getting old too! 🙂
Thank you so much for joining me here this week! If you missed anything, we started with a new fitness post and workout with free printable, traded in our usual black pants for a sassy red pair, got a jump start on fun 4th of July outfits, and today is a new roundup of Summer Outfits. I hope this post inspires you to mix and match the things in your closet. And I have lots of cute summer outfit ideas for moms!
As always, for size reference, I’m super petite, 5’1, 110 and 34D. Let’s get to it!
Summer has already hit Houston hard. It’s been hot and humid, so shorts are high on the priority list! You can see a full review of my favorite jeans shorts here, but the ones that get the most wear are my favorite boyfriend shorts and the comfy cuffed shorts.
It’s evident that no detail was overlooked when creating this perfect t-shirt! The neckline is spot-on, the fit is flattering and not too boxy, and the little twist on the sleeve makes it extra special. Plus, #stripes
TOP FIT : I’m wearing XS in this top and didn’t feel like I needed the petite for a relaxed fit.
As you’ll see throughout this post, orange is a recurring theme! Sam Edelman makes the best quality shoes at an affordable price. Every pair I have in that brand last forever! These cutout slide sandals have an extra cushiony footbed and come in tons of colors. I’m tempted to get the white next.
SANDAL FIT: TTS
This light wash, distressed pair of jean shorts are a steal at under $25! I wore them to Lost Pines and the “Out of Office” tee was particularly appropriate. I’m still smitten with the floral embroidery tote bag. It was perfect for taking to the mini beach and isn’t too big to carry as a regular tote.
SHORTS FIT : These run big, I’m wearing 00 and they’re still quite relaxed.
Anytime I find a cute top with details like the ruffled hem on this one, it makes it that much more special. I’m also really fond of this shade of pink. I took a pic of the back so you could see the detail better. It’s so hard to take a selfie back shot!
All my collection of Gibson x Hi Sugarplum is on repeat lately too! This top has that same special detail with the flirty ruffled sleeves and racerback. Wear this top with this racerback bra so your bra straps don’t show.
FIT : Having both the XS (pink) and XSP (polka dot) in this one, I’d say the XS runs big. The XSP was my perfect size, but the XS was good for pulling into a front knot, as you’ll see later in the post.
I also wore it with jean shorts last week.
SHORTS FIT: I sized down 1 from 25 to 24 in these, but I’d only do that if you’re in between sizes.
Here we go with the slides again! Orange is having a moment in my closet and I’m loving this unexpected, playful color!
These shorts are the shortest ones I have, but I still love the fit and style! They’re also great for throwing on over your swimsuit at the pool.
SHORTS FIT: I sized down 1
See! More orange and more Gibson x Hi Sugarplum! I know lots of you were disappointed that this darling halter sold out quickly in many sizes, but I just checked and there are still some left! You’ll also want to wear my FAVE strapless bra with this top. It’s amazingly comfortable, keeps the girls up all day without any fidgeting and can also be worn as a regular bra because it has removable shoulder straps.
TOP FIT : The XSP was my perfect fit in this top, even though I wear a 34D.
JEANS FIT : TTS, wearing 25P
What do you wear to a Justin Timberlake concert?! Honestly, just getting to go to concert and see him this.close was the highlight for me, but I wore my fave distressed white skinny jeans (I seriously love them) with the everyday v-neck tank. I have this one in tons of colors and wear it with everything!
When our baby blogger was here this week, she got a taste of photographing and posting an Instagram and Stories! I can’t believe how mature 13 year-old girls are these days! She was a delight and I’d happily have her back!
I wore this grey stitch detail and ruffle sleeve tee and frayed hem jeans and she choose the accessories!
JEANS FIT : TTS, wearing 0P
TOP FIT : Runs big, I’m wearing XXSP
My wedges were in my latest Nordstrom Trunk and, although they’re high, they wide wedge makes them quite comfortable and easy to walk in. They’re TTS.
I could’ve put this one in my 4th of July post! The red cami and white jeans would fit right in!
TOP FIT : I’m wearing the regular XS, which is TTS, but I might prefer a slimmer fit with XSP. I ordered XSP in the palm print to compare sizes, but I’m still waiting on it to arrive.
This one was for sure in there! But the top comes in lots of solid colors too, so it’s not just for the upcoming holiday!
My next dose of orange comes in my perfect Summer mini dress. I love this one so much that I wrote a whole post about it & just got it in pink! There’s still one black one out there calling my name . . .
Y’all were crazy for this drawstring maxi dress. It’s like your comfiest t-shirt, in a dress!
FIT: It runs big, so size down. The XXSP fit me perfectly without having to alter the length.
DRESS FIT: TTS, I’m wearing petite petite. And no alterations needed!
This red maxi and the black one below are also great dresses for us shorties because it comes in petite with adjustable spaghetti straps. The dress is truly versatile for vacation, date night, weekends, and more. It even works as a swimsuit cover up!
If you missed the latest Work • Weekend • Wow, these red pants were the star of the show and maybe they looked familiar. . . because they are the same pants as the ones below!
JUMPSUITS & ROMPERS
I definitely have a thing for jumpsuits and rompers, despite the pesky bathroom issue. 😉
This blue striped romper and the white one below are great for hot Summer days alone or worn over a swimsuit. Both are great deals too- $32 for the blue one and $34 for the white!
ROMPER FIT: Runs small, wearing Small Petite
ROMPER FIT: TTS, XSP
FIT : I got this romper in two sizes (XSP blue print & XS solid black). Both fit me, but the XSP is a little shorter and with the XS I could blouse the top part over the shorts.
And I found three stylish Summer jumpsuits below. I like to think of a jumpsuit as the hip younger sister to a dress. You can wear it almost anywhere you’d wear a dress, but you’ll feel sassier and more chic!
JUMPSUIT FIT : TTS and the XS fit me perfectly in the waist, but the top was tight on my 34D chest.
JUMPSUIT FIT : This jumpsuit fits TTS, and comes in petite, I’m wearing 0P.
JUMPSUIT FIT : This jumpsuit fits TTS, but because it didn’t come in petite, the crop length is full length on my 5’1 frame. The shoulder straps are adjustable, and I’m wearing my fave strapless bra with it.
ATHLEISURE & WORKOUT
Are you still with me on the #HWHFitnessChallenge?! It’s definitely been a challenge, but I’m so glad we are doing this together and motivating each other! Only 11 days to go!
These shorts are a fave for running and working out. They’re a great length, lined, and have a stretchy elastic waist band for $30! The shoes are just too fun!
SHORTS FIT : TTS, XS
SHOES FIT : TTS
I rewarded myself with a new pair of sneakers and am really happy with them. They are super lightweight with a stretchy upper foot and mesh for breathability. I like how there’s not a true ‘tongue’ just one piece that pulls on easily. I’ve been doing mostly weight workouts and classes in these and still wear my Nike Flyknits for running.
If you are going running or just want extra support for the girls, this is the sports bra to wear. The awesome thing about this sports bra is it’s sized according to your bra size with hook and eye closures in the back so you can get a very accurate and comfortable fit. The shoulder straps are thicker and padded so they don’t cut into your shoulders or hurt while you’re wearing it. And they are adjustable with velcro, so you can lengthen them or shorten as necessary.
FIT : I find they run TTS. I wear a 34D bra, and I buy 34D in this sports bra.
SWIMSUITS & COVERUPS
Favorite coverup, hat, and pool flip flops in one pic! The shorts romer coverup has the cutest embroidery and crochet with a little ruffle at the side. It fits TTS, wearing size XS.
I’m crazy for the shape and style of this straw hat & in comes in different sizes for a custom fit! I’m wearing XS. My mirrored sunnies are a great, less expensive dupe for Ray-Ban aviators! Less than half the price!
This swimsuit is just hot, no doubt about it! I love the crochet detail and how it’s artfully placed to emphasize your hourglass shape! I’ve seen this suit on all kinds of body shapes and it always looks amazing! And the straps are adjustable.
Fit: TTS, Small
Y’all saw this one shoulder bikini on Monday, but good news, it’s been restocked in all sizes!
TOP FIT : TTS, wearing size Medium
Not gonna lie, I was kinda worried this suit wouldn’t be kid friendly, but luckily, it stayed put just fine and the smocked top is super cute! Wearing size Medium.
Especially on vacation with several days in the sun, sometimes you want to cover up your skin. An adult rash guard is the perfect solution. It’s surprisingly cool on and the silky material feels good against your skin. I’m usually not a fan of brands labeled clothing, but I feel like the “billabong” on this one looks surfer chic.
FIT : It’s designed to be snug, I’m wearing size Small
Give this one-piece a try if you want a sassy suit that’s still family friendly. It comes with a removable halter strap and is currently price matched 30% off!
FIT : TTS, wearing size 4
This maxi coverup is flowy goodness with pockets! I had mine altered so it wouldn’t be too long with flat sandals!
It’s so hot here lately, that I had to find a shorts/tank pair and I’m smitten with this set. They make for comfortable, cool sleep and lovely lounging around before bed.
They’re $38 a set, or 2 for $60. I really wanted the blue stripe, but they didn’t have my size. Luckily, grey is also one of my favorite colors. Isn’t the lace trim on the racerback tank cute?
FIT : TTS, XS
