Dressing Room

Good morning Friday!!  We’ve had a jam packed week here and I’m so looking forward to the weekend!  We’ll have James’ baseball skills assessment and then a basketball game, so lots of fun stuff.  Here on the blog it’s been super busy as we finalize the fitness eBook for release Monday, January 28!  If you aren’t already subscribed to my blog and newsletter, sign up here, because I’ll be emailing you a ♥ discount code ♥ in the HWH Weekend Newsletter on January 26!

If you missed any of this week’s posts you can get caught up here on the Amazon fashion faves, behind the scenes of the fitness eBook photo shoot, the best sales, and finally GSD!


Today, we’re onto my first dressing room post of the year and I found a new pair of distressed jeans (on sale $43) I’m in love with, a darling peplum top and a sweater I’ve been wearing nonstop.  Also, I know y’all are going to want the details on my different phone case and it’s similar to this one with the O-ring handle.

Also, the necklace I’ve been wearing is this gold choker.  I adore the delicate style, but it’s small so measure first! My rings are by Gorjana (similar to these). My nail color is Let me Bayou a Drink!

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.

Okay, now onto the fun stuff. Let’s jump into this dressing room post!  AND, see a LIVE try-on saved to my Instagram Story Highlights soon!

Madewell peplum top

Madewell Peplum Top

This top is one of my very faves from this post!  It’s flirty and feminine and I love the peplum shape. It’s on the pricey side for a top, but you’ll have lots of opportunities to wear it-  at the office, on date night, to church or lunch.

Top Fit : I’m wearing size XS and it also comes in plus sizes.

Similar Jeans • Blue Bag

I like to start the new year with a fun colored new bag.  This year, I found a pretty blue one with a fun o-ring handle, but you can also wear it crossbody!  It’s under $50 and just the pop of color I need to add some interest to my outfit.

I bought this version last year in yellow, but it’s out now in a gorgeous deep blue.

LOFT jeans and tee

Love Tee • Distressed Skinny Jeans

You gotta love an ‘all is love’ tee around Valentine’s day, but for me, I’ll wear it all year long!  And the LOVE part is in a pretty pink and red embroidery so it stands out.

Top Fit : I’m wearing XSP

The jeans are my new fave!  I really like the slimming shape, distressing in all the right places and the darker wash. They’re also on sale for only $43!  You better believe these came home with me!

Jeans Fit : I’m wearing 0P

Loft jeans and cardigan


The love tee looks cute under a fitted blazer or a soft cardigan like this one.  I like the cozy shawl collar and pockets!  It also comes in olive or grey and is on sale for $30!

Yellow sweater

Sweater • Caslon High Waist Jeans

Although we might be wishing for warmer weather, I’m okay with still being in sweaters when they’re this cute and cheerful!  The cable knit is really well done and then on the side the cable knit goes at a slant to create a slimming shape.

TOP FIT: I’m wearing size XXS.

Aqua sweater

Sweater • Jeans

It’s really pretty in this aqua color too! Which one do you prefer?

TOP FIT: I’m wearing size XXS.

Spring short sleeve sweater and jeans

Scallop Hem Sweater • Jeans

Isn’t this top fun?!  Right away I liked the color and scallop hem, and it’s 40% off now.  I would size up though!

TOP FIT: I’m wearing size XS, but could have sized up to a small.

Boatneck sweater

Grey Boatneck Sweater • Jeans

Did you know that bateau means the same thing as boatneck? I didn’t!  Either way, I adore this neckline and always feel feminine in it, espeically if you pull your hair back.  And the good thing it, you can wear a regular bra with it without the straps showing.  This style sweater is lightweight, but still looks classy and elegant and comes in a ton of colors, including stripes.

TOP FIT: I’m wearing size XSP

Black boat neck sweater

See, I liked it so much I got it in both neutral colors! 😉

Striped pullover

Striped 1901 Shirt • Belt • Jeans 

You can’t go wrong with stripes!  This top and below are both too cute.  I like this one with blue jeans and also with white jeans or jean shorts.

TOP FIT: I’m wearing size XS

Striped sweater turtleneck

Striped Turtleneck SweaterJeans 25% offSimilar Leopard Booties • Belt

If it’s still cold where you are, you can wear this turtleneck sweater to help keep you warm.  It’s nice and stretchy and of course I dig the stripes! I like it worn casually with jeans and leopard booties, but it would also look great with slacks or a skirt or layered under a sweater or jacket.

TOP FIT: I’m wearing size XS

Weekend Sweatshirt

Weekend Sweatshirt • Ripped Jeans

Let everyone know weekends are your fave! 🙂 This cozy soft sweatshirt is from Target, but feels really nice on, not at all scratchy.

TOP FIT: I’m wearing size XS

Polka Dot Jumpsuit


Y’all know how much I love a good jumpsuit and this is one of those times I actually think it looks better on than on the website.  It’s menswear inspired with the notched lapels and pockets, but the tie belt and petite polka dots mix in the feminine.  I can’t wait to wear this out! And it’s only $67!

JUMPSUIT FIT: I’m wearing size XS and it needs to be taken up.

Do you remember when Ali-Shaun and I tried on this jumpsuit?  Well, it’s back from the alterations where I had the length taken up and I love it!  I’m wearing mine to this year’s school “Starry Night” Gala and Ali-Shaun already wore hers to the Elton John concert.

I had to try these pjs in honor of Valentine’s Day coming up.  They’re cute and comfy and still warm enough for our cold nights.

PJs Fit : I’m wearing size Small, but needed XS.

  1. Is the link for the striped stretch turtleneck correct? It links to a cowl neck sweater at Macy’s that looks totally different.

  2. Oh I love that aqua sweater and the navy striped Henley! Question on the sweater… it looks like it would stretch out. What’s your thought?

  3. Love your fashion selections and so excited about the fitness book!! Thank you so much for the heads up on the discount code. I have marked my calendar as a reminder and looking forward to ordering your ebook!

  4. Wondering about the sizing in the weekend sweatshirt…it’s says juniors. Are you an xs in juniors? If so would that be true to size. If I’m a m/l and want it to be cozy and not fitted would you go L?
