Dressing Room

Welcome to the weekend friends!  Do you always let out a sigh of relief on Friday?! I know I do! Today, is a day off school for my son for parent/teacher conferences, then we’ll be heading out to run some errands, including adding more pumpkins to our front porch!  I’m also in the mood to do some Fall cooking, so I’ll be browsing through some of my favorite cookbooks looking for inspiration.  If you subscribe to my Weekend Newsletter, I include a new, healthy and yummy recipe there each week!

It’s been a jam packed week here on the blog with October Loves, My Healthy Morning Routine, the Best Sales, Cute & Casual Fall Outfits and now today’s Dressing Room post! I’m so thankful for your continued support and readership and appreciate you taking time out of your day to be here.  I’m sharing some of these outfits live on Stories today if you want to see them in action!


For Size Reference: I’m a shorty (5’1) and petite, athletic build (bigger legs), weighing about 110 and wear a 34D bra.  I typically wear size 0p/25 jeans, XSP in tops and dresses.


Cute Fall Outfit - black skinny jeans and striped sweater

Black Jeans 40% offSweater • HeelsBraceletBag

Okay friends, first up, I have to rave about these jeans and urge you to trust me and GET THESE JEANS!  I’m not usually so bossy (that’s my 2-year old’s job), but these are that good!  First of all, they are like a brushed cotton that is so smooth and soft (aka comfy!) but they also lift and shape your body beautifully! They’re ultra slimming and especially in the Fall and Winter, look great with so many color combos.

The other adorable thing about these jeans is the double frayed hem at the ankle.  I love that little detail!

JEANS FIT:  TTS, I’m wearing 25P modern fit, but they also come in curvy fit, regular/petite/plus.  

I’m wearing them with this lightweight ribbed sweater that has stripes in a pretty purple, pale pink, and black combo.

TOP FIT:  The sweater runs small and is on the shorter side, I’m wearing XS, but if you’re busty, you might want to size up.


In this round of tops, we’ve got blouses, sweaters, sweatshirts and hoodies! Oh my! Lots of options to get you through these colder months in comfort and style;)

Cute Fall Outfit - black skinny jeans and leopard top

Leopard Print Top •Black Jeans 40% off • Heels • Bag

Should I call this leopard or is it more jaguar?!  Semantics aside, the animal print and black look so classy and chic together, especially with a great pair of pointy toe heels.  These heels are the perfect basic heel for so many outfits and they are great quality and very easy to wear.

The top looks polished tucked all the way into the jeans, but for a weekend look, you can wear it untucked with blue jeans and booties.

BLOUSE FIT:  TTS, I’m wearing size XS

Cute Fall Outfit crochet top and jeans

Crochet Top • Distressed Skinny Jeans  • Heels

I love the romantic feel of this crochet style top with slightly poufed sleeves.  It’s feminine and can definitely be worn year round. You’ll need to wear a cami underneath and I choose white to keep it simple.  I would definitely wear this for a casual dinner out.

TOP FIT:  It runs slightly small without stretch, I’m wearing XXS 

White blouse

Flutter Sleeve Embroidered Top on sale & extra 40% off • Black Jeans 40% off

If you’re looking for a way to up the interest on your typical white work blouse, this one has fun tone on tone embroidered sleeves with a flutter style.

Leopard top (1)

Leopard Print Blouse 40% off • Black Jeans 40% off

Oh hi again!  This time your leopard is on the polished side in a button down blouse with a silkier feel.  The first leopard top I showed is more crisp cotton textured.


pink sweater

Bar-Back Cozy Sweater • Jeans • Sandals

Soft pink is one of my favorite colors and universally flattering on everyone!

Criss cross sweater

Wrap Sweater • Distressed Skinny Jeans  • Necklace

This wrap sweater was so popular it sold out in a jiffy, but I found one nearly identical, but with a high/low hem.  The criss/cross front is really cute and the same tank cami looks great underneath it.

SWEATER FIT:  It’s a relaxed fit, I’m wearing XS


striped hoodie

Sweater • Jeans

I’ve been leaning towards sweatshirts lately, but these varieties each have a little something extra.  This striped v-neck top has the cutest ruching on the side with ties and gives you a more fitted shape, without being body conscious.


Cute Fall outfit start sweatshirt

Star Dotted Pullover • JeansWedge Sneakers

Of course the tiny black stars on this grey sweatshirt were too adorable to pass up.  The sleeve also has a cool ring embellishment on it that makes it edgy.


Cute Fall Outfit striped hoodie jeans and slip on sneakers

Striped Hoodie • JeansRuffle Sneakers

Something about a hoodie just says Fall to me and I love to wear this to my son’s ball games or just casually around the house.  I dig the stripes and kangaroo pocket on this one.  It’s also very well made with a nice weight to it. The hoodie went fast, but there’s a zip up version and a nice striped tee that have the same vibe!


Pink velour hoodie

Velour Hoodie • Jeans Shorts

This sweatshirt took me back to the days when Juicy Couture was all the rage!  Remember those velour track suits?! 😉  Well, this is even better because it’s modern for today, ridiculously soft and cozy and the prettiest shade of pink!


Grey rainbow hoodie

Grey striped hoodie • Jeans Shorts

If you missed yesterday’s post, this rainbow sleeve sweatshirt is a new find that I’m smitten with- hoodie and kangaroo pocket.  I’m sure you’ll see this one popping up a bunch!



Fall cozy cardigan

Cozy White Cardi • White Cami • Distressed Skinny Jeans  • Booties

Houston went from sweltering hot to downright cold overnight!  Luckily, I had this warm and cozy cardigan on hand to bundle up in.  I swear I felt like I was inside puffy clouds in it!

CARDIGAN FIT: TTS, I’m wearing XXS.  It also comes in plus size.

Soft cardigan • White Cami • Distressed Skinny Jeans  • Booties

This blush colored cardigan feels almost like a spongy robe, it’s so soft and huggable.

CARDIGAN FIT: TTS, I’m wearing XS. It also comes in plush size.


Reversible vest

Vest • Striped Top • Jeans • Sneakers

There’s so many cool things about this vest, the first being that it’s reversible!  It’s a pretty sleek pink on one side and fleece lined on the other!  The fleece part is that teddy bear soft material that is so super cozy and plush.

VEST FIT: Runs small, I sized up to a Small

TOP FIT:  Runs a bit big, I sized down 1 to XXSP.

Leopard print puffer vest

Leopard Puffer Vest • Jeans • Smocked Black TopSandals

If you’ve been here much lately this last month, you know it’s been leopard on repeat- but this vest is a fun way to incorporate the pattern- and keep you warm!


Gibson cozy fleece joggers


After putting these on, I don’t know how I lived without them in my life.  YOU NEED THESE, TRUST ME! They are that ultra soft fleece material that Gibson is known for with a fitted ankle, comfy tie waist and pockets!  I’m 100% smitten!

JOGGERS FIT:  TTS, I’m wearing XSP

Flutter Sleeve Top $24,  $14Modern Skinny Jeans $80, $43

I’m always a fan of LOFT’s Modern Skinny Jeans because they fit well, look cool and have just a teensy bit of stretch. This pair is out in a new wash and perfectly distressed.

I’m smitten with the soft ruffled sleeve tee.  This one can be worn for all kinds of occasions from work to weekend.  I really wanted it in all the colors. The square neck (which you kind of miss out on with my hair down) adds that extra detail too!

This dress is a definite WINNER!  It feels crisp and cool on and the shape is divine!  It has slight ruffled sleeves, tucks in at the waist and has an asymmetric ruffle hem.  It could be worn on date night and also dressed up with jewels and heels for a fancy Fall party or wedding.

I’ve also seen it listed on Loft’s site as ‘wear to work’ because it’s still cut on the conservative side.
