Dressing Room – LOFT, NORDSTROM, BANANA

Woo hoo for Friday!  I’m looking forward to Tex Mex and a big ‘ole margarita with friends tonight!  Sounds pretty good, right?! For the weekend, it’s back to baseball, celebrating a friend’s birthday, and honoring my Dad who would have been 61 this year.  So young, right? My mom is the same age and I tell her all the time how young she is and how much life she still has left to live!  We all do- let’s make the most of it!

We kicked off the week talking health and if you’re confused or overwhelmed on where to start with vitamins, take the quick quiz I shared here.  Y’all always love my Amazon fashion posts and I shared my pro tips for finding cute, affordable clothing, and then the best sales of the week.  Your favorite sale item this week was the under $25 loafers in leopard print.

FALL FITNESS CHALLENGE

We’ve heard from several of you that bought the Get Fit Done Meal Plan (thank you!!) who said you’d be interested in doing a Fall fitness challenge.  We’re putting that together right now and it will launch on Tuesday, October 1.  You can join the FREE challenge by becoming a member of the Get Fit Done Private Facebook Group.

We’ll be sharing lots of free resources, including workouts, recipes and even how to save calories on your favorite Fall Starbuck’s drinks! 😉

If you want to purchase the Get Fit Done Meal Plan, it’s still just $19, but will go up to full price on October 1.  Let’s do this!  Especially before the holidays and craziness kicks in! 

DRESSING ROOM

Now onto today’s dressing room post where I found lots of great Fall pieces to mix into your closet!

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

long sleeve striped tee and jeans

Top • Daily Ritual Skinny JeansBelt • Mules

I’m all for lightweight long sleeve tops this time of year and this one is super cute with dark olive (almost brown) stripes and a contrasting blue neck.

Top Fit: Runs small, I’m wearing size XS

The jeans are a fave from my last Amazon post– These mid-rise jeans fit like a glove and are super comfortable and stretchy. When I put them on, I felt like I looked longer and leaner with the dark wash and skinny style. Bonus, they’re under $40!

Jeans Fit: I’m wearing a size 25R (I could have ordered the short, but I do like the rolled up look)

striped sweater and jeans

We’re getting closer to sweater weather and here’s one I’m really looking forward to wearing. I think the colorful stripes are a fun touch!

Sweater Fit: I’m wearing size S

You saw the white version of this button front pullover in my transitioning from Summer to Fall post, and I liked it so much I bought it in grey too.

Top Fit: I’m wearing a size XS

black shirt dress

If you love the comfort of throwing on a dress and heading out the door, you’ll like this one.  It’s a slightly heavier, sweatshirt-like weight, so perfect for Fall temps. The drawstring waist is functional and it has pockets.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing a size XS

color block sweater and jeans

Sweater • Daily Ritual Skinny JeansBeltFlats

Fun fun is this sweater?!  The colors are striking and I like the slight balloon sleeves.  Plus, you have to see the back with a cute zipper!

The back on this 3/4 sleeve tee is cute too.  I’m partial to this coral and blue stripe combo, but it comes in more.  And it’s on sale for under $10!

Top Fit : I’m wearing size XS

BANANA REPUBLIC

I haven’t been inside Banana Republic in ages, but popped in to see what’s new for you there and found some darling things!  Everything is 40% off!

star shirt and jeans

Star SweaterDaily Ritual Skinny JeansBeltFlats

This darling star sweater felt amazing on and no wonder- it’s a silk cashmere blend!   If I still worked in an office, I’d get double duty out of it because I’d be wearing it weekdays and then again on the weekend.  It’s also just the lightweight style we get so much use out of in the south because of our mild Fall and Winter and a/c usually on blast when we go out.

Sweater Fit : I’m wearing size XS

leopard sweater and jeans

Leopard SweaterDaily Ritual Skinny JeansFlats

It’s definitely all about animal print right now.  This leopard print sweater is a classic v-neck cut that can also be worn from work to weekend.  I’d love to see it paired with black or camel colored trousers or an A-line skirt.

Sweater Fit : I’m wearing size XS

sweater and corduroy skirt

SweaterSkirt Flats

A marbled chunky knit sweater gets me every time – it just seems to be the epitome of cozy!  This one is the ‘warm white’ and it also comes in a luscious ‘purple berry’.

Sweater Fit: I’m wearing size XS

In vegan suede, this skirt feels so soft and silky against your skin.  I can think of so many ways to style it from the look above, or with a camisole and cardigan, or with a floral print top and knee high boots.

Skirt Fit: I’m wearing size 0P

leopard dress

Leopard Dress

Y’all know I love a wrap dress for being universally figure flattering and this one is no exception.   It’s a jersey knit, so very stretchy and easy to move in.  The leopard print is totally on trend, but it also comes in a more demure navy polka dot or floral print.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing size XS

leopard jumpsuit

Leopard Jumpsuit

I was crazy for this jumpsuit!  It’s just the thing that will turn heads at your next party or event.  It’s got a high neck and then comes in at the waist with a coordinating tie belt.  I also love that it has pockets.

Style Tip: The wide leg crop pant will look best with heels.

Jumpsuit Fit: I’m wearing size 0 

LOFT

I found sooo many great things at LOFT!  The cool thing is that they mix and match so well so that you can create several outfits from a few pieces.   Get 40% off tops, sweaters and sale items. 

cardigan vest

Cardigan VestWhite TeeJeans • Flats

When you’re ready for cardigans, but it’s still too warm, a cardigan vest is a perfect in between option.  When it cools down, a long sleeve top looks great underneath too.

Cardigan Fit: I’m wearing size XS-S

Tee Fit: I’m wearing size XS

blazer and jeans

BlazerWhite TeeJeans • Flats

Here’s a better look at the tee I layered underneath.  It’s a thin, ribbed knit with a cute button detail at the shoulder.

Tee Fit: I’m wearing size XS

The jeans are a new fave! I love the button fly and raw edge step hem.  With the hem being shorter in the front, it lets a bit of ankle show above your booties.

Jeans Fit : Wearing 0P

If you work in a professional environment or want a smart night out outfit, a blazer like this is a great option.  It’s nice and fitted and doesn’t look bulky.  And guess what, you can machine wash this one!

Blazer Fit: I’m wearing size 0P

color block sweater and jeans

I’m so ready for sweater weather!  How cute is this one with the marbled style and colorblock stripes?!  It’s also machine washable!

Sweater Fit: I’m wearing size XS

poncho top and jeans

Poncho TopJeans • Flats

I wasn’t sure how good this would look on, but I ended up really liking it!  It’s a dolman sleeve style that drapes beautifully and looks modern and chic.  It would also be great with a skirt.

Top Fit: I’m wearing size XS

tunic tee and jeans

Tunic TeeJeans • Flats

I feel like I can never have enough great, long sleeve tees.  I liked the plum color on this one that lends itself to Fall, as well at the feminine cut and v-neck.

Top Fit: I’m wearing size XS

fringe wrap

Oh man, I can’t wait to wear this fringe wrap! It feels like cozying up with your favorite blanket, but it’s appropriate to take outside!

Why does a ruffle make everything cuter?!  I like how the ruffle sleeve wasn’t so overwhelming that it would get in the way of everyday functions like eating or writing.

Top Fit: I’m wearing size XS

And these pants are SO soft and a nice alternative to jeans.  They are the ‘skinny sateen leggings’ but they have a zip fly, button closure and pockets like a pant.

Pants Fit : Wearing size 25P

#Gimmealltheleopard How many leopard pieces does that make for this post?! 😉 I liked the length and higher neck on this sweater.  If you sized up, you might be able to wear it with leggings.

grey peplum top and jeans

TopJeans • Flats

A mixed media top like this is a great way to get that layered look without adding extra bulk.  A necklace would dress this top up nicely.

Top Fit: I’m wearing size XS

plaid pants

For all you working girls, I scooped up these pants that would be a fun change for the office.  Treat them just like your regular black pants when thinking of what to wear on top.

Pants Fit: I’m wearing size 00P

sweater and leopard skirt

Yes, yes, yes to this sweater! I dig the cowl neck and cozy vibe.  This creamy color is gorgeous, and it also comes in black.

Sweater Fit: I’m wearing size XSP

I don’t think I got a great picture of these leggings, but they are awesome with a nice texture to them.  They came is several styles and they’re a great alternative to your basic black leggings.

Leggings Fit: I’m wearing size XS

To add a little bit of leopard without going overboard, a skirt is a great way to go.  This one has a nice weight to it and it’ll take you from now on into winter if you pair it with tights and booties.

Skirt Fit: I’m wearing size 2P

loft sunglasses

I’ve had great luck with my Loft sunglasses.  This cateye pair caught my eye as I was checking out, but I felt like they were just a bit too big for my face.  They’re a great deal though- only $12 on sale!

Pointy Toe Pumps

Before I go, I had to share these sassy heels with you that I found at Nordstrom.  They’re by Sam Edelman, a trusted shoe brand, known for great quality and style.  All of my Sam Edelman shoes have lasted for years!  This classic shape will give you legs for dayssss!!!

They even come in leopard!

    My Dad would have been 60 this year – we lost him 7 years ago. My Mom is going to be 60, and we have to tell her the same thing – you have so much life left! <3
