Dressing Room & Labor Day Sales

Happy Labor Day friends!  Are you doing anything fun today?  We’re having family over for a backyard barbeque and I’m pumped!  If there’s one way to get projects and cleaning done around the house, it’s to host a party!

I finally finished up some little backyard projects and even cleaned out the garage- including wiping down all those ride on toys, bikes, and dusty things that live outside!  I’m so sore!  

And last night, James and I had a special movie date.  I don’t get as much one-on-one time with him as I’d like, so that was really nice.  We saw Spiderman and both gave it 4.5/5 stars- lots of crazy animation and futuristic action.  Plus, the actors are adorable!

Today’s post is a Dressing Room try-on with lots of Summer to Fall fashion, and so many fun dresses.  At the bottom of the post, I rounded up some of the Labor Day sales you might want to check out.

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


Red V-Neck Sweater and Distressed Jeans

Thermal TopJeansWedge SneakersWrap Bracelet (all 40% off)

I’m crazy for this lightweight thermal top because I love the feminine shape.  The v-neck is just right and it’s got a banded waist that easily blouses over.

Top Fit: I’m wearing size XS

Grey V-Neck Sweater, Distressed Jeans and Leopard Flats

I liked the top so much that I’m keeping both colors! 😉

Henley Top • Skinny JeansAmazon Leggings Checkered ToteWedge Sneakers

I was also pretty smitten with this super soft henley top.  It’s long enough to wear with leggings, but also looks great with jeans.  I saw this one was going fast, so hopefully it’s still in stock! If not, this one is similar!

Top Fit: I’m wearing size S

If you missed it, I always rave about these leggings– if you need a new pair, definitely get them.  They quality is really good, they’re opaque, and you can wear them for working out or as an outfit.  Plus, they last forever and machine wash well.

You’ll definitely want to stock up on this basic long sleeve top.  I got it in maroon also, but there’s also white and a pretty yellow/gold.

Top Fit : I’m wearing size XS, but if you want it more relaxed, size up one

Jean Fit: I’m wearing size 1 

Black Open Front Cardigan, White V-Neck Cami

White CamiLong CardiganRipped Knee Skinny JeansLeopard Booties

This cardigan has been on repeat for years, but I just got the black one recently.   It’s a great transitional weight cardigan that you can wear now without sweating to death and the long length actually makes you look taller!  It’s 40% off in other colors and stripes too!

Cardigan Fit : I’m wearing size XSP

The white camisole is the one you saw here, and one I have in almost every color because I like the quality (fully lined) and simple v-neck.  You can adjust the shoulders and even the white isn’t sheer.

If you want to up your cami + cardigan game, this scallop trim tank is sure cute and I dig the bright color!

Plaid Tweed Jacket

Puff Sleeve Sweater • Tweed Jacket • Ripped Knee Skinny Jeans • Black Heels • Nude Heels

A tweed jacket is a statement piece that looks great dressed up for the office with slacks or a skirt, but also looks smart for a night out. I love the mix of colors in this one, along with the sleek shape and fringe.

How sweet is this top?!  It’s got a slightly puffed, elbow length sleeve and also comes in black and white.

Black Off The Shoulder Sweater, Distressed Jeans

Jeans • Off Shoulder TopBlack HeelsLeopard Belt

Gibson was kind enough to send a few things from their latest City Safari Collection, and out of all the bold, colorful animal prints, of course I was drawn to this solid black off-shoulder top!

It’s got a great weight to it and a comfortable elastic that will stay in place without riding up. Wear this strapless bra with it! 😉

Top Fit : I’m wearing size XSP

When you’re ready to wear sweaters, but it’s too hot out, a sweater tank is a good in-between option!  It’s 25% off now!

I ordered a few things from Red Dress and I’m crazy about all of them!  Red Dress Boutique has really cute, on trend pieces at good prices.   They also have FREE, fast shipping when you spend $50.

The jeans are a pretty light wash with a fun cuff and button fly.

Here’s one of those ‘wear now with jean shorts’ sweaters or wear later with jeans.  I think the colorful stripes are a fun touch!

Scalloped Cheetah Tank, Black Distressed Jeans

That same scallop tank in the orange/red above also comes in this bold leopard print.

Top Fit : I’m wearing size XSP

I think it looks great with the Old Navy distressed jeans from this post.  They’re on sale for only $25!

The fit of the jeans is amazing and very slimming.  They are high waist with a good bit of stretch and a pair I can comfortably wear all day. No wonder this jeans are a top seller with fantastic reviews!

If you love showing off your shoulders and aren’t afraid of a little attention, this is your top!  The floral/leopard combo is hot right now and this style is so flattering on everyone!

For a more traditional leopard print top, I like this v-neck style with short sleeves.  It’s a style you can wear anywhere and still feel more dressed up than if you were wearing a regular tee.

Top Fit : I’m wearing size Small


I found so many cute dresses this time, I wish I could keep them all!

Leopard Print Wrap Dress

Leopard Print Wrap DressBlack Heels

I’m always a fan of a wrap dress for the way they flatter your body by drawing you in at the waist.  This one felt great on and I love that it had long sleeves, and don’t get me started on the cute ruffle at the bottom!

Dress Fit: I’m wearing size XS

Ivory Print Dress

Ivory Print DressBlack Heels

This dress is so good!  It’s fun and classy at the same time with a high neckline and shorter length.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing size S

Colorful Animal Print DressDress • Booties

This is the same dress you saw in my 3 Animal Print dresses post, but this one is in the popular ‘sunset cheetah’ print. It’s got a darling smocked neck and coordinating tie belt, hitting above the knee.

Dress Fit : I’m wearing size XSP.  I noticed it got two 2-star reviews for the fit being off, but I thought it fit TTS.

Button Front Ruffle Sleeve Dress

Dress • Booties

I like how this dress can be worn for both summer with sandals and Fall with booties.  I wore this adorable button front dress and I love the ruffles at the sleeve and hem.

Dress Fit : I’m wearing size Small

Long Sleeve Mixed Pattern Dress

Dress • Nude Heels

You guys! I went gaga for this dress when I saw it online! I think it’s fabulous!  Sizes are going fast and I hope they have your size.  It’s literally making me want to go work in an office again.  I adore the mixed pattern and blend of colors.  Even the tie belt is mixed patterns!

Dress Fit : I’m wearing size 2P

Navy Lace Dress

Navy Lace DressClear Heels

Here’s the navy version of your little black dress.  I wish I had somewhere to wear this to soon because I think it’s just darling!  I almost prefer navy to black sometimes because it seems to be less severe or serious.

The crochet overlay and detail on this dress is exquisite.  It’s fully lined with a sweetheart neckline and adjustable shoulder straps, zipping up the back.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing size XS

Long Sleeve Wrap Dress

Long Sleeve Wrap Dress •  Nude Heels

I can’t believe this dress is under $60!  I really like how the leopard inspired print is layered on a navy background.  It’s also wrap style with a side tie and machine washable.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing size XS 

Floral Print Ruffle Dress

You little flirt! 😉 This dress is so fun and 20% off.   It’s fully lined with slightly puffed sleeves. A tie at the waist accentuates your hourglass shape and the miniskirt is ruffly goodness.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing size 2

Black Maxi Dress

Maxi DressCircle BeltLeopard Clutch

I felt very elegant is this long, solid color maxi dress, but it also comes in bold prints.  This dress would give you a great excuse to wear your hair up and show off a colorful pair of statement earrings.

I belted it, but the waist is smocked, so you don’t have to.

Dress Fit : I’m wearing size XSP

Snakeskin Dress

DressClear Heels

This pleated dress was definitely made for dancing!   It you have a party or girls night coming up, maybe a trip to Vegas or anniversary, this would be a fun dress to wear.   It’s fully lined and the top part is a ‘popover bodice’ that gives it a top and skirt look, but it’s actually a dress.

Dress Fit : Wearing size XSP and I felt like I needed to size down 1

Black Faux Leather Skirt

Faux Leather SkirtHigh Neck TopClear Heels

I’m already thinking of 100 ways to wear this faux leather skirt this fall and winter!  For now, it’s super cute with the halter top, but it would also be casual chic with a relaxed sweater or layer with tights and booties.

It’s by Spanx and faux leather that easily pulls on.

Skirt Fit: I’m wearing size XS, and it goes to 3x

Red Maxi Dress

Three cheers for maxi dresses!  We’re still wearing them in Houston and I’m crazy for this vibrant red.  I like how this dress has slits so if you want to knot the front, you won’t be tripping over your feet!

Dress Fit: I’m wearing size S


Patterned Jumpsuit

 Jumpsuit • Gold Bangles

I’m sooo bummed this jumpsuit didn’t fit me because I really liked the style and pattern.  Isn’t it cool?!   I think if you can get your size right, it would be so fun to wear!

Jumpsuit Fit : I’m wearing size XSP and would prefer to size down 1
