Dressing Room (Part 2)

Good morning Monday! It’s James’ birthday today and I spent my morning time reflecting on what a gift God gave me when he made me his mom.   I can honestly say James has been such a joy and delight since the day he was born.  Even when I was pregnant with him, I remember the feeling of enjoying his company and I still feel that way.  He’s the best big brother and so kind and thoughtful and smart.  He’s nine years old today and I’m just so very proud of the person he is!

Thank you for indulging me in gushing on him!  Many of you that have been with me since I first started blogging will remember when he was just a baby! Thank you for being here so long!


On Friday, I shared Part 1 of this Dressing Room series, but that dang sinus infection got the better of me and I didn’t get it finished.  So, today, I’m bringing you Part 2.  I’m definitely feeling better, but I still have a doctor appointment today to get checked out.

If you’re new here, here are my sizes for reference so you know what size to order for yourself.  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!

Red blazer light wash skinny jeans and nude heels Red Blazer • V-Neck Tee • Light Wash Jeans • Nude Heels

Jacket Fit : TTS, I’m wearing Size 0

A nice blazer easily dresses up your outfit and one like this without any front buttons goes from work to dinner with just a change into jeans. I love the vibrant color of this one, but it also comes in a chic black and white pinstripe.  The sleeves are rusched to up the casual factor.

TOP FIT: It’s a ‘fitted fit, I’m wearing size X-Small, my true size

You can never have enough basic t-shirts in your closet and this one is a great weight, perfect v-neck with stretch.  It comes in a ton of colors and also stripes and they’re 2 for $20!

Jeans Fit : TTS, I love that these come in ‘short’ sizes for us petites!  I’m wearing 0 Short. 

The jeans are a new favorite from American Eagle and I’m really loving their brand of jeans.  Not only are they a great price (under $30! seriously!!), but they fit and feel so good on!  Definitely give American Eagle a chance if you haven’t already!

Pattern tunic and skinny jeans

V-Neck Top • Light Wash Jeans • Wedge Sandals

Top Fit : Wearing XS

This lightweight pullover is versatile for wearing with jeans, slacks, skirts or shorts.  I like the 3/4 length sleeve and the button detail at the chest.  You won’t believe it’s only $10!

Wedge Sandals : TTS

I love these ‘strappy heel style’ wedges for when you want the look and height of a heel, but not the casualness of a wedge.  I like them so much I bought them in black and tan!

Stripe tee and skinny jeans

Stripe T-Shirt • Light Wash Jeans • Wedge Sandals • Snakeskin Belt

Top Fit : Slightly boxy fit, I’m wearing XS

For an easy to throw on top, you can’t go wrong with this cream and back stripe crewneck.  It’s cut on the boxier side, but has cute rounded hem and comes in other patterns (including leopard!) for only $5!

The snakeskin belt is a fun touch too! I’m wearing the XS.

Stripe tank skinny jeans and sandals

Stripe Tank • Light Wash Jeans • Slide Sandals • Pendant Necklace

Tank Fit : TTS, I’m wearing Size XS

I love the shape of this little tank and the lettuce edge hem.  I’m sure you’ll be seeing this one a lot this Spring and Summer.  Right now, it’s perfect for layering and later, it’ll be great with jean shorts and over your swimsuit!

Sandals Fit : TTS

I’m CRAZY for these new slide sandals too!  I have a better picture of them a little later in this post, but they are so cute and comfortable!  They have little stud trim along the edge that dresses them up and I like them with jeans, shorts and white jeans! They’re by Sam Edelman, which makes great quality shoes- all the pair I have by them last forever even with tons of wear!

blue tunic and white jeans White Jeans • Tunic Top • Wedge Sandals • Bag

Tunic Top Fit : Relaxed fit, I’m wearing XS and it’s a bit roomy, but very comfortable

How cute is this tunic?! It’s on the pricey side, but I think it looks as expensive as it is.  The contrasting stripe and fish pattern and color makes me think I need to wear it to a summer party or on a boat with cocktails!

JEANS FIT : The jeans fit TTS.  My normal size is 25, but they were out of those at the time, so I’m in a 26, but the waist was bagging in the back.  I washed and dried them and they shrunk a tad, so I’m sticking with this size. 

These white Levi’s hit all the marks for a great white jean – opaque!!, not at all see through, not a jegging!, short pockets that don’t hang low or stand out, and a hint of stretch.  They have a raw edge hem so you can easily snip them to your desired length and one slightly ripped right knee for a little edginess. And the best news, they’re under $40! 

blue button down top and white jeans White Jeans • Short Sleeve Striped Shirt • Wedge Sandals • GG Belt

Striped Top Fit : I’m wearing XS

This blue and white stripe button down style top is a Spring/Summer staple.  I love it with white jeans and tan shoes.

tshirt and white jeans

You Are So Great Tee • White Jeans • Slide Sandals

T-Shirt Fit : This tee fits oversized, the XS was large on me. 

I adore the sentiment and fun colors though!

Kiss me I'm Irish t-shirt and white jeans

White Jeans • AE Kiss Me Shirt • Slide Sandals

Top Fit : TTS, I’m wearing XS

This top is super cute for St. Patrick’s Day.  It says “kiss me” on the front, and “I’m Irish” on the back. The words are made up of tiny shamrocks and the fabric and cut is slouchy chic. The shirt appears to have sold out quickly, but there are similar Good Luck and Irish Strong option still available!

Ribbed sweater and destroyed jeans

Destroyed Jeans • Ribbed Sweater • Lower Wedge Sandals

Sweater Fit : Snug fit, I’m wearing size XS

It’s still pretty chilly here and we’re bracing for a cold front today, wo I’m still searching out some sweater or warmer options.  I like the fitted nature and navy color of this one with the bold buttons.

Jeans Fit : TTS, I’m wearing size 0 Short

Y’all have heard me raving about these destroyed jeans since I first got them.  They are pajama soft and I don’t mind rocking them over age 40!  I’ve been wearing the heck out of them!

white tee and destroyed jeans

Babe T-Shirt • Destroyed Jeans • Slide Sandals

T-Shirt Fit : This tee fits oversized, the XS was large on me. 

I thought the ‘babe’ wording was simply flirty and if you like a relaxed style basic tee, this is a good one!  And here’s that better look at those adorable and comfortable slides.

Black skinny jeans and striped top

Striped V-Neck Top • Black Jeans • Similar Wedge Sneakers

Top Fit : This top is a slim fit and runs slightly small. Size up if you want it looser, I’m wearing XS.

Jeans Fit : TTS, I’m wearing 0 Short

This is another pair of American Eagle jeans I’m obsessed with!  The fit is amazing (no gaping in the back) and they are so slimming.  They fit with the stretch of a jegging, but have pockets, zipper and button like traditional jeans.  They black is nice and opaque and they make you look like you have legs for days!  And they’re under $35! 

Short Trenchcoat

Trenchcoat Fit :  TTS, I’m wearing Size 0

I’m so happy to find such a quality and stylish trench coat since we’ve been raining cats and dogs lately! Seriously, the last two times I went to buy balloon bouquets for the kids’ birthdays, it was pouring and I was struggling to get them into the car without getting soaked!

This trench is double breasted with a wide belt and pockets.  It looks so chic and the length is perfect too!

Wrap dress with ruffles

Wrap Dress • Nude Heels

Dress Fit : TTS, I’m wearing XS

I couldn’t help but already think of Easter Sunday when I tried on this dress.  I adore the bold colors, ruffle hem and the little bit of metallic thread running throughout.  Sooo pretty!!

wrap dress

Wrap Dress • Nude Heels

Dress Fit : TTS, I’m wearing XS

Wrap dresses are my favorite style to wear to work because they are so easy to wear and also figure flattering.  The petite pattern on this one is elegant and interesting at the same time. The top snaps closed and it’s also belted at the waist. You could definitely wear this one to work or out for happy hour after!
