Dressing Room – Nordstrom & Loft

Woo hoo for the weekend!  And SUPERBOWL weekend, no less! We’ll be heading to a friend’s house for the big game – but you know I’m only there for the food, commercials and halftime show! 😉 I do love getting together with friends and family during these kinds of events because it’s so laid back and good, casual fun.  Lots of kids running around and the adults get a chance to catch up too.  Do you watch at your house or go somewhere for the game?

Recently on the blog we had a double dose of Amazon goodness.  My regularly bi-monthly Amazon post went live Friday, and then we had a bonus Valentine’s Day edition.  Soon, Jordan and I will be creating a Valentine’s box for her to collect her classroom Valentines in.  I love doing that kind of stuff!  ♥

It’s one more thing on the plate, but that’s how life goes!  If you want to see how I plan my week, or need some planning help for yourself, check out this post. There’s a Weekly Routine printable in it that you can customize to fit your schedule.

Before we jump into today’s big dressing room post, I wanted to thank each and every one of you for being here!  I know y’all have busy lives and I so appreciate you spending part of your day with me.

An extra thank you goes out to my blog subscribers and Felicia111888, the WINNER of my January Loves!

Now onto today’s Dressing Room post!  Even though we’ve got lots of cold weather ahead of us, I’m already longing for Spring styles.  This post has a mix of sweaters, short sleeve tops, jeans, dresses and more for ya. Many things you can wear now and while winter lingers on, but also some things that you can start incorporating into your wardrobe soon.

For Size Reference: I’m a shorty (5’1) and petite, weighing about 110.  I typically wear size 0p/25 jeans, XS or XSP in tops and dresses.


T-ShirtJeansNude PumpsStar Necklace

You guys! I’m so happily surprised at the quality and feel of this t-shirt.  I didn’t expect it to be so velvety soft!  It’s a lovely scoop neck shape and you could wear it dressy or more casual.  It’s only $25 and also comes in leopard print.

T-Shirt Fit: I’m wearing an XS and it’s slightly fitted.  If you want it more relaxed, I’d size up

These jeans have grown on me more and more as I’ve washed and worn them.  You first saw them in this post, but that’s before I had cut the hem.  Now that they’re shorter on me, I like them better!  They are a great hi-rise style, dark solid wash, and curved hem (pre-chop)!

Jeans Fit : TTS, I’m wearing size 0 and snipped the hem.  I prefer 0P 

T-ShirtStar Necklace

I also like that the white is nice and opaque.  I’m wearing this bra with it in the ‘frose/red clay’ color.  I love how smooth this bra is under tees and almost always reach for it first. The bra fits TTS.

Camo Pants, White V-neck Tee, Wedges

White V-neck TeeCamo Pants (on sale) Wedges

Another wonderful basic tee is by Amazon, and since I was trying on these camo pants, I wanted I’d give you another tee option.  It’s nice and stretchy, with a cotton feel, perfect for layering.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS, runs small

The camo pants are a fun departure from your typical jean or khakis. They have a straight leg that looks good with a wedge or bootie.  For a ‘wear now’ style, add a sweater or jean jacket on top.

Live Well Love T-shirt

T-shirtJeansStar Necklace

Live Well, Loves Lots, Laugh More.  I can definitely get on board with this sentiment. 😉 It’s got a curved hem and cap sleeve and also comes in other styles.  The sunglasses version is pretty cute.

T-Shirt Fit: I’m wearing an XS

White Twist Front Long sleeved T-shirt

Twist Front TopStar NecklaceJeans • Wrap Bracelets

I’m all about the twist front trend.  It gives you the look of a little front tuck without any hassle.  This top has bracelet length sleeves, so easy to bunch up and show off your arm candy.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Love is all you need T-shirt

T-ShirtJeansNude Pumps

Love is all you need.  I like the little hearts on this one.  A graphic tee looks good alone or layered with a blazer, cardigan or jean jacket.

T-Shirt Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Smocked Split neck Shell Pink

Top (on sale)JeansSneakers

I’m dreaming of Spring even though we’re currently in the coldest temps of the year. This style and color of this pink sleeveless top is so bright and cheerful, and can easily be dressed up or down.  It will be perfect with white jeans in the Summer and a skirt for the office.

Top Fit: TTS, I’m wearing an XS, prefer XSP 

These jeans (and the same style in the lighter wash) have been my go-do since the holidays.  They have the tiniest bit of distressing and a casual chewed hem.  The fit and comfort is right on.

Jeans Fit : Wearing 2P 

Floral V-neck Top, Wedges

Floral TopBeltJeansWedges

Another Spring option for ya is this floral tank blouse.  It’s absolutely gorgeous in person and the dark background is a nice contrast to the floral print.  The fabric is really cool too- it’s lined with a mesh overlay on top.

Top Fit: TTS, but if you’re in between, size up.  I’m wearing an XS

Striped Peplum Tee

Top (on sale)JeansSneakers

I’m all for a relaxed casual long sleeve top this time of year.  This one has a soft peplum style and although the poor lighting doesn’t show it well, it’s a pretty shade of blue and white!

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS


I adore this pullover! It’s flirty and feminine with a smocked sleeve and textured material.  You can also easily dress this top up with slacks or a skirt.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Top Shop Sparkle Smocked Bodice Top

Sparkle TopJeansNude Pumps

I really liked the subtle sparkle on this top.  It’s flirty and feminine with the smocked waist and peplum hem, which is always flattering.  The chest, sleeves and bottom are sheer, so it’s definitely a date night top.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS

White V-neck Smocked waist Top, nude pumps

White Smocked Waist TopJeansNude Pumps

This top is a fun combo of sassy and sweet.  The material feels like a heavy t-shirt, so nice and casual, but the cut shows off your shape.  It’s slightly ruffled at the shoulder with a smocked waist and sleeve.  I’m always drawn to white, so I really liked it.  I also thought you could wear it now with jeans, and also pair it with dressy shorts or a skirt.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Striped Ruffle Sleeve Tee

Stripe Top (on sale)Jeans • Sneakers

I liked the petite ruffle detail at the bottom of this top and sleeves, plus #stripes! It’s a boatneck style with 3/4 length sleeves.  You could easily go from work to weekend in this one.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Floral Flutter Sleeve top, Curved hem KUT from Kloth, Nude Pumps

Floral TopJeansNude Pumps

The turquoise color on this top is so beautiful.  It has a pale blue and tan floral print, with a smocked neck and ruffled sleeves.  It’s definitely work appropriate and I’m sure you’d get lots of compliments on it.  I loved the color and pattern so much that I bought it in a dress you’ll see below.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Red V-neck Smocked waist Top

Red V-Neck TopJeansNude Pumps

This vibrant red tank blouse has date night written all over it.  If you’re less busty, you could also wear this at work with a blazer for a smart look (it also comes in a demure black).  I love the peplum style and added detail of rusching at the waist that really draws you in.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Black dotted smock waist top, KUT from Kloth Curved hem Skinny, Nude Pumps

Smocked Waist TopJeansNude Pumps

Another more modest option is this smock waist, crossover blouse.  It has a front snap to make sure it stays closed.  This style of blouse can take you from work to dinner with friends.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Snake Print Peplum Top, KUT from Kloth curved hem skinny jeans, Nude Pumps

Snake Print TopJeansNude Pumps

I love the fit, style and snakeskin pattern on this top!  Plus, the crossed peplum detail is is so flattering. The material is on the sheer side, so I’m wearing a thin tank underneath.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS, runs small

Snake Print Peplum Top


White V-neck Teddy bear Sweater, Star Necklace

V-Neck Teddy Sweater (on sale)

I actually wore this sweater shopping, so I thought I’d share it too since it’s a fave!  I have it in both black and white and it’s snuggly goodness when the weather is cold!

Sweater Fit: I’m wearing an XXS

Green Pullover Treasure and Bond

Green Hoodie

This definitely came home with me – I didn’t want to take it off.  It’s that super soft sweatshirt material and I dig the vibrant green.  Will still be great with jean shorts later too.

Hoodie Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Grey Lace Shoulder Top, Skinny jeans, Star Sneakers

Top (on sale)JeansSneakers

Isn’t this a fun crochet detail at the shoulder?! I had a top like this years ago that y’all loved, but unfortunately sold out, so this is a great similar option.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Grey and White Floral Top, Skinny Jeans, Star Sneakers

Top (on sale)JeansSneakers

This top has a romantic feel to it with the paisley/floral print, but it’s got a modern shape and sweatshirt material.

Pink Turtleneck Sweater with Kangaroo Pocket

Top (on sale)Jeans

A big YES to this cowl neck sweater!  I adore the coziness of the sweater material with the bright pop of pink.  It’s got a nice bit of stretch to it and a fun kangaroo pocket.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS, size up if you want to wear it longer

Greay Button down V-neck Sweater, Skinny Jeans, Star Sneakers

Sweater (on sale)JeansSneakers

This casual sweater is cool because it’s actually a hoodie. I like the button detail at the chest that dresses it up a bit. If you’re short like me, you could probably get away with wearing it with leggings.

Sweater Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Grey and White Heart Sweater, Skinny Jeans, Star Sneakers

Heart Sweater (on sale)JeansSneakers

Gimme a heart on a sweater or shirt and I can’t resist!  But, I’m partial to a grey/white combo too!

Sweater Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Black and White Stripe Tie Front Top, Skinny Jeans, Star Sneakers

Stripe Top (on sale)JeansSneakers

If you’re a fan of stripes, this sweater will be calling your name.  It’s made to be tied at the front and would also look good with white or black jeans.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XSP

Floral Ruffled Mock Tee, Skinny Jeans, Circle Bet, V cut Booties

Top (on sale)BeltJeansBooties (on sale)

This top was a keeper! I really liked the fringe floral pattern and how it doesn’t look like anything else I’ve seen recently.  It’s a good transitional material, not too heavy and not too lightweight.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Stripe Sweater, Grey Skinny Jeans, Nude Pumps

Stripe Sweater (on sale)Grey Jeans (on sale)Heels

How cute is this striped sweater?!  It’s nice and warm, but also cheerful with the pastel colored stripes.

Sweater Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Rainbow Stripe Sweater, Grey Skinny Jeans, Nude Pumps

Rainbow Sweater (on sale)Grey Jeans (on sale)Heels

I was also smitten with this rainbow sweater.  It’s a lovely v-neck style with slight balloon sleeves.

Sweater Fit: I’m wearing an XS

The sweater looks especially good with these grey jeans.  I don’t wear grey jeans as often as I do black or blue, but it’s a nice change of style to mix things up once in awhile.  This pair is a skinny, mid rise in a perfect shade of grey.

Grey jeans fit : I’m wearing size 0P 

Navy and White Stripe Turtleneck Sweater, Skinny Jeans, Leopard Flats

Stripe Pullover (on sale)Jeans (on sale)Flats

I’ve already worn this sweater several times.  It’s definitely cozy and warm and I like the contrasting navy/white stripes. And, it has a casual kangaroo pocket and loose cowl neck.

Pullover Fit: I’m wearing an XS


Floral Dress

Dress (on sale) 

LOFT always has a great selection of floral dresses and this style is so easy to wear.  It’s smocked at the waist with a tie sleeve detail.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing a 00P, prefer 0P

Black Ruched Flounce Dress


Oh la la! What a perfect little black dress!  The shape is amazing with short sleeves, flattering side ruching, and flounce hem.  I bet this is one that you’d get so much wear out of.  You can make it work friendly with a conservative shoe, or party ready with fun heels and a necklace!

Dress Fit: I’m wearing a 00P, prefer 0P

V-Neck Floral Dress

Floral Dress

This dress is fabulous!  I’m already scheming where I can wear it!  I think it would be great for a Mother’s Day brunch, Easter, wedding, bridal shower or party.  The material is nice and structured and the floral embroidery is so well done.  Plus, there’s a grosgrain ribbon detail at the waist and chest with a flirty ruffled hem.  The dress is fully lined and stunning in person!

Dress Fit: I’m wearing an XS

V-Neck Floral Dress

Woodland Floral High Low Hem Dress

Floral High Low Hem Dress

Here is the dress I was telling you about above when you saw the top in the same fabric.  This exact dress is sold out, but the short sleeve version is available.  It’s so pretty in person with a flowy high/low skirt, smocked waist and slightly puffed sleeves. There’s also a little button detail at the chest that adds a special touch.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Long Sleeved Faux Wrap Dress, Black dot print, Nude Pumps

V-Neck DressNude Pumps

Because this dress is on the shorter side, I was immediately thinking it would be great with over-the-knee boots and a faux leather jacket.  It’s still darling with booties or heels, and you could also add a belt for more interest or to break up the top/skirt.

It’s fully lined and the front stays closed with a hidden snap.  This dress also comes in solid black and red.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Geo Print Dress

Geo Print Dress

Isn’t this a fun dress too?!  I dig the geometric pattern and colors in it.  It’s a wrap style dress that ties on one side with a hankerchief hem.  I also like the statement collar and how it fits on the bust.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Red Drawstring Jersey Dress

Drawstring Jersey Dress

This might literally be the softest dress you put on your body.  It didn’t look as special on the hanger, but I absolutely loved it on!  It’s thick and stretchy and as comfortable as pajamas!

Dress Fit : It runs large, so I recommend sizing down. I’m wearing XXSP 

Red Floral High Low Hem Dress

High Low Hem DressClear Heels

This maxi dress sure does make a statement with it’s bold orange/red hue and wild flower print.  It’s light as a feather with gorgeous detailing.  The waist is rushed and cinched to accentuate your smallest part and the high low hem shows some leg!

Dress Fit: I’m wearing 2P


Black Bodysuit, Tie Dye Skirt, Skinny Jeans, Snakeskin Skirt

BodysuitMidi SkirtJeansSnake Print Skirt

I found such a great v-neck bodysuit, and it looks great with skirts, jeans and slacks.  The bodysuit has a deep v and full bottom with snaps. It’s body conscious, but feels really great on.

Bodysuit Fit : I’m wearing XS

The first skirt is a body skimming, soft and stretchy knit in a super cool tie dye print.  The maxi skirt is a pleated and comes in three different colors/patterns.

Skirts Fit: I’m wearing an XS in both

White Gibson Top, Denim Skirt, Circle Belt

TopBeltDenim Skirt

The denim skirt is back and better than ever!  This one is so cool because the cut is great (not too long and not too short) and easy to dress up with a blouse or down with a tee and sneaks. I particularly like the pretty blue wash and where the pockets sit on the sides and in the back – very flattering.

Skirt Fit: I’m wearing XXSP

The embroidered top is just the thing we’ll be reaching for come Spring and Summer.  It’s so easy to wear and looks great both tucked and untucked.

Top Fit: I’m wearing a XSP

White Top Gibson, Black Maxi Skirt Gibson, Wedges


It’s nice to be able to mix and match these pieces, and if you love to wear skirts, you’ll like the easy style of this one.  It’s got a comfortable elastic pull-on waist, but you can get a perfect fit with the functional drawstring.  It’s tiered and moves beautifully.

Skirt Fit: I’m wearing an XXSP

Red Bodysuit, Black Maxi Skirt, Wedges


I have to rave about the bodysuit!  It feels amazing on and is a full bottom that stays put all day without any riding up! It also snaps underneath for easy access to the bathroom!  ? You can also wear your regular bra with it and it won’t show.  I love how neat and streamlined it looks with your jeans, shorts, and skirts.

Body Suit Fit: I’m wearing an XSP


Blue Romper with White Floral Print, Wedges


How fun is this romper?!  It’s a lovely sleeveless style with a ruffled mock neck, drawstring waist and pockets.  It’s great that it’s not too short, so you won’t feel exposed or inappropriate in it.  It also has a fun long tie at the neck.


Y’all have already heard me raving about these wedges – the sandal for this Spring and Summer.  I’ve had a chance to wear them a few times now and they’ve been comfortable all day. I’m tempted to buy the snakeskin print next!
