Dressing Room 2.12.21

Hi friends! Happy Valentine’s weekend! Do you have any sweet plans?  We’ll be taking it easy, with nothing major on the agenda and that’s fine by me!  As you could probably tell from yesterday’s book post, I’m definitely in a season where I appreciate moving slower.  Of course, I love to GSD, but that’s work mode and there definitely needs to be a slow gear too.

Jordan had been sleeping with me and now it’s time to get her to sleep in her ‘big girl’ room again.  The first night was rough and, although she ended up sleeping in her room, it wasn’t without her getting up 50 times and I was so tired!  Fingers crossed this weekend goes better!

If you missed it this week on the on the blog, I shared a new Loves Giveaway, the Best Sales, and what I’ve been reading lately.

DRESSING ROOM

Today I have a new dressing room post where I’m trying on all the things I ordered from Loft, Nordstrom and Walmart, with a couple things from Amazon, Abercrombie and Express mixed in!  Many of the pieces are on major sale too!  What retailer do you want to see in the next dressing room post?

SIZE REFERENCE: I’m petite, 5’1, about 110 pounds.  I usually wear 0P or 25 in jeans and XS or 0P tops.

Let’s start with some cute super cute finds at the most affordable prices! This Fri-Yay pullover is adding a little pep in my step today! The FriYAY letters are bright embroidery and the top is lightweight pullover perfection.

Now this is one of those SUPER SOFT and cozy knit tops that you don’t want to take off – 0r – you want to sleep in!  It also has a really cute criss cross back.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS

I’ve been so happy with my Sophia Vergara jeans.  They are on the thinner side, but fit well with a good bit of stretch.  This pair is a mid rise in a light medium wash and raw edge hem.

I’m always smitten with a peplum top for how easy it is to wear and how flattering they are.  This one has an adorable petite floral pattern on a dark background, perfect for transitioning to Spring.  The ties are meant to be tied around your neck, leaving a little keyhole, but I also like them worn undone.

This top feels so silky smooth on.  It has beautiful rusching at the bust and a flattering peplum hem.  It’s a little hard to tell from the photo, but the material has a snakeskin pattern on it.  This would be so good for a night out or even to wear to work with your barely bootcut pants.

Y’all saw this pink leopard print top in my 5 Valentine’s Day outfits post, and I’m still crazy for it!  Can you believe it’s a Target find?!  It has a flirty ruffle sleeve, silky feel, and zips up the side.

I also found a tank I want in every color!  It’s the perfect flowy silhouette that just skims your body without being body conscious.  I know I’ll wear this all the time come Spring and Summer, but for now I like it layered under a cardigan.

Our weather is supposed to be frigid this weekend, so we’ll likely be staying inside, but if we have to venture out, that’s what these warm UGG boots are for!  I love the style and and wedge heel.  They’re very comfortable.

The sweatshirt is from Target and so cute with the slightly puffed sleeve and buttons.

The lettuce trim detail on this pullover had me at hello!  Such a fun detail.  I’m a bad blogger for front tucking it, so you can’t see it! Sorry about that!  It’s the same detail that’s at the sleeves. 😉

Top Fit: I’m wearing a XS

I’m wearing mid-rise LOFT jeans and they’re a light wash with some distressing.  I like the style a lot!

Jeans Fit: I’m wearing a 25 Petite (this was my true size at LOFT, but now I prefer 26P.  I’m not sure if I’m getting bigger or they’re getting smaller.  😉

I have to mention this belt too!  I’ve been looking for a belt in a simple style in the perfect shade of brown that goes with everything and I found it!  It’s made of leather and also comes in black. Fits TTS.

You can’t go wrong with a cable knit, v-neck sweater.  This “peach cream” color is so good and lends itself to Spring too.  I also really like the other colors it comes in.

I’m CRAZY for these wedges!  They’re just like the stud sandals I wore the heck out of last year, but in a wedge!  They fit TTS.

Ooh, this ombre sweater is fun!  It’s a tightly knit pullover and I love how the white fades into yellow. In the Spring, it would be great with your white jeans.

I’m feeling so much more breathing room in the size 26 jeans!  This pair is a KEEPER!!  They’re a lighwash, hi rise (which has come to be my fave lately) and button fly.

I wanted to try LOFT’s popular everyday v-neck tee with short sleeves and a patch pocket. It’s a burnout style, so kinda sheer, but not see-through.  I like the thicker hem on the neck, sleeves and hem.

Of course, you can wear the tee on it’s own, but it’s also great for layering.  I am so crazy for this sweater jacket.  It looks chic like a polished tweed blazer, but it’s a sweater material! So genius and perfect for an evening out or the office!

DRESSES

Dressing Room Finds, Dress, Clear Heels

Dress (Use code HONEY20 for 20% off) • Clear Heels

Oh man, this dress will make you feel so feminine and pretty!  It’s got a darling pin dot texture and the style is so romantic.  It’s fully lined from just above the bodice to the knee, and then that part is sheer for a little va va voom. The tie belt brings it all together and I feel like you could wear this on so many occasions.  Think church, a wedding, fancy dinner, or shower.  It also comes in lilac.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing an XXS 

Dressing Room Finds, Wrap Dress, Clear Heels

Dress (on sale) • Clear Heels

SMITTEN with this wrap dress!  It’s so flattering with the wrap style that accentuates the smallest part of your waist. I also like the 3/4 length sleeves.  It has a flirty ruffle hem and comes in several colors.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Dressing Room Finds, Blue Dress, Clear Heels

Dress (on sale) • Clear Heels

I’m not usually one for cobalt blue, but every time I put it on, it reminds me of Shannon telling me I should wear more blue.  The color really is vibrant and gorgeous and the dress is so flirty!  The high neckline balances out the shorter skirt and I like how the elastic waist creates a blouse effect.

It also comes in navy, black and red.

Gimme all the athleisure! This waffle knit hoodie pullover is just the kind of thing I’m so comfortable in at home all day!  I really want the ‘tree balsam’ color!

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Y’all know how much I love the Amazon ponte leggings, so I wanted to compare them to the LOFT ponte leggings.

The Amazon ponte leggings are what I like to wear when I want a leggings outfit, as opposed to a workout legging.  The ponte knit is nice and thick, super opaque and very comfortable.  The Amazon style I like is a mid-rise with a comfortable waistband.

The LOFT ponte leggings are just as thick and opaque as the Amazon pair, and I like their thicker waistband and high waist.  One thing I thought was odd was that the ankle was so skinny.

I bet I’ll be wearing this sweater this weekend since it’ll be so cold.  It’s kinda different because, although it’s a sweater, it has a v-neck and collar.  I think it’s awesome!  It looks great with leggings, but also with jeans.

Leggings Fit: I’m wearing an XSP

I jumped on board with the combat boot train and I’m digging it!  When I wear leggings, I usually pair them with sneakers, my pointy toe boots just look a little weird with them.  BUT, the combat boots look so cool and they’re still a relaxed, casual style.

These boots are a faux leather with a breathable jersey lining.  I love that they zip on the side so you can keep the laces tied!

COZY OUTFITS

Dressing Room Finds, Sweatshirt, Lounge Pants

TopLounge Pants

Y’all!  I’m living for this lounge outfit, even though the pants are 10 miles too long on me!  Maybe if I machine wash and dry them I can shrink ’em up! ;). They’re such a comfortable lounge outfit you’ll want to live in with the soft, brushed rib knit.

    So… you look cute in every outfit, but honestly, I’m just NOT buying walmart or target or amazon clothes. I’d like to see some more upscale clothes. I refuse to buy Nordstrom as well, because I’ve been bitten by bad packing (like just thrown in the box with no protection), obviously worn and returned items, and just junk from them one too many times.
    I am looking to buy fewer, better quality pieces. Not designer level necessarily (teacher salary), but not fast fashion. This is not a critique of you in any way. You just asked what we’d like to see, and that’s what I’d like to see. Nice things that are classic and will last more than one season’s worth of wear.

    I always loved your blog. I wish you would do different posts with different stores I do not like having to click on an item that is sold in a place I don’t shop at. It’s just too much. I am tall and have never shopped Walmart for clothes. Don’t get me wrong I shop at Walmart for everything else including groceries and prescriptions. Even target. My daughter in law gave me the softest joggers which I wear at home on weekends but they go up to my calves. I LOVE target but not for clothes. 🤷🏼‍♀️Would be nice to separate
