Huge Dressing Room | 4.16.21

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Thank you so much for all the sweet comments on our Mexico trip recap!  Writing the post and looking at the photos makes me excited to go back!  We have some couple friends we think would be fun to go with next time. 🙂

I also shared the best sales & my Sephora Sale picks and my top 10 Amazon household items (all on Prime!).  Are mine on your list of faves too??

Tonight I’m looking forward to a date night with @thefancyashley and @thereakmrfancy!  Ashley is a long-time friend of mine, and I’ve seen her hubby when we’ve face-timed, but I’ve never met him in person!  It’s gonna be so fun!

DRESSING ROOM

You won’t believe all of the cute things I found at Walmart.  Awesome shorts, several darling dresses and lots of affordable Spring sandals!

And, there’s more!  I also ordered from Express, Nordstrom and Loft (50% off +  free shipping with code : OMG).

I hope you get lots of outfit inspiration from today’s post!  For more outfit ideas, go HERE.  Looking for Amazon outfits?  They’re HERE!

JEWELRY WORN: Layered Double Initial NecklaceWrap BraceletBangles

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

AGOLDE shorts and striped top

Square Neck TopAGOLDE Jean Shorts  • SandalsHello Weekend Tote

I took these jean shorts to Mexico and they might just be my favorite pair!  They’re by AGOLDE, their vintage cutoff shorts. They look so good on, the perfect mix of relaxed casualness. 

They have a high waist, 2 1/2 inch inseam and frayed cutoff hem, with a hidden button fly.

They are on the pricier side for jeans, but given the price per wear, I’ll definitely get my money’s worth out of them! Plus, shipping is free and so are returns.

The top is so versatile, a linen blend that’s machine washable.  It goes great with these shorts for a relaxed vibe, or dressed up with khaki pants and sandals.

AGOLDE jean shorts and tank

I’m loving this paprika color and found several things in this hue.  It’s so lively for this time of year and looks great on everyone!  I like this color with jean shorts and especially with white jeans.

The tank is a sweater material with a cute little front pocket.

These are the gingham paper bag waist shorts I wore to the crawfish boil last weekend.  I wore them with a navy bodysuit, but they look great with the sweater tank too.  There’s so many colors you can wear with these shorts (white, yellow, light blue, pink) and they’re super flattering.

It’s hard to tell from the photo, but they have a texture to them and an elastic waist.

See, here’s that fun color again!  And these shorts will be on repeat for sure because they’re so dang cute and comfortable.  It makes me want every color and they come in 7 shades.

They have a silky smooth feel and are machine washable. The inseam is 2.5 inches and they pull on.

I reach for this bodysuit time and time again because it’s sleek and opaque.  It’s got a full bottom with snap closure and comes in every color of the rainbow.

A big fat yes to these cutoff jean shorts!  They have a high waist, light wash and distressed hem. They’re lighter in weight than the AGOLDE above, but only $24!

Shorts Fit: I’m wearing a 0- Not knowing how they’d fit, I bought my true size (0) and a size up (2), but the zero fit me perfectly! 

Tee Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Beatles Tee • Shorts

My parents were huge Beatles’ fans and my son is too.  He and his friends were the Beatles for Halloween a few years ago and he still has a poster in his room.  This graphic tee is a nod to those good feelings, plus it’s super soft with a seamed, undone finish and the print isn’t loud.

If you love a sweater tank, this is a good one.  The creamy neutral goes with everything and the wide straps make it bra friendly.

Isn’t this a pretty Summer look?!  The pants are actually a jean in a wide leg crop style.  Of course, on me they fit to my ankle, but you taller ladies will get to show a bit of skin.

Another way you can style these jeans (and I think it makes a great casual work outfit) is with this striped tee.  It’s got a more boxy, conservative cut which makes it perfect for work or school events.

I’m also impressed with the selection of shoes and sandals at Walmart right now.  All of the shoes I’ve worn with these outfits are from there!

Another blouse I picked up at Walmart – but you wouldn’t realize it- is this clip dot top.  The detail is so thoughtful and sweet.  It buttons all the way down and has a cute (not too tight) elastic at the sleeve.

Moving onto skinny jeans, yep, I’m still wearing ’em, how about you??  This pair is so pretty with the light wash, a great summer color.  They’ve got slightly ripped knees and a comfortable high waist.

This black and white gingham top can be worn on or off the shoulder and would also look so fresh with white jeans.

These sandals are also from Walmart and really comfortable.  Treat the pattern as a neutral and you can wear them with practically anything.

You can also dress up your jeans with this amazing blazer.  I’m so impressed with the style and quality of this one.  The cut is fabulous and the sleeves are made to stay 3/4 length with relaxed rushing.

The collar is sleek and simple and the pockets are faux so they lay flat without adding any bulk.  There’s even small shoulder pads to give a stronger shoulder.

I got so much wear from the black faux leather jacket I got at Walmart and was so happy to see it in this pretty slate blue for Spring.  It’s got all the same cool silver hardware and a modern cropped shape.

This top is mixed media- a silky front and soft t-shirt material in the back.  It’s got cherries all over and a split neck.  You can also machine wash it!

Blouse Fit: I’m wearing an XS

These pants are a MUST HAVE from Amazon!  They are thicker, which makes them smooth everything underneath perfectly!  They have a lot of stretch and you’ll be so relaxed in them at work.  The simply pull on with a flat front and wide waist band, and pockets!

SKIRTS & DRESSES

Orange Smocked Maxi Dress, Woven Bag

This dress is gorgeous and feels so good on!  It’s silky soft and fully lined and I may wear it to Tarah’s birthday dinner.  The shoulder straps are a statement too, finished with flirty tassels.  The smocked top fits perfectly and if you want to wear it bandeaux style, just tuck the straps inside!

I liked this flowy maxi dress so much that I got it in two colors.  This red is almost paprika in color and it feels so good on, draping the body in a lovely, non body conscious way!

Ribbed Tank Dress, Striped Woven Clutch

If you are opting more a closer fitting dress, I really liked this one! It’s a ribbed knit with lots of stretch and the higher neckline, long length, and solid color really makes you look taller.

And how about this bag?!  As soon as I got it, I was smitten!  The striped neutrals are lovely and it has a faux leather handle with criss-cross stitching.  It even comes with a black drawstring bag you can put inside if you want to hide your things.

I like this maxi as a swimsuit coverup.  The smocked bodice stays comfortably up and the print is so lively!

This sassy LBD is fully lined and has a nice square neck and wider shoulder straps that makes it easy to hide your bra.

I’m crazy for these strappy black heels, but the top strap is too narrow for my feet in my true size.  I’m going to return for a 1/2 size up and see how that fits.

I’m really digging the peachy pink in this striped midi dress.  It’s a ribbed knit with lots of give and super easy to walk in.

Puff Sleeve Yellow Dress, Sandals

How fun is this yellow number?!  I felt so feminine and pretty in it!  The sunshiny yellow has petite white floral print throughout, which kind of mutes the yellow a bit.  The detail is stunning with the smocked bodice, ruffled sleeve and latter stitch detail at the skirt.  It’s also lined to the knee.

It would be perfect for church, a shower or brunch.

Palm Print Dress

I wish I had this dress in Mexico! Doesn’t it look like a fun dress to take on vacation?! The print is so tropical and the long maxi length makes it great for dinner.  The v-neck shows the perfect amount of skin without being too revealing.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing an XS.  This size was too small across the chest for me (couldn’t zip it all the way up!) and it’s also too long.

Ooh, this is fancy!!  It’s definitely a contender for a wedding, gala or fancy dinner.  The crochet detail is gorgeous and it’s lined to the knee.  It zips up the back and the shoulder straps are adjustable.

Oh man, get this top and shorts outfit!  It’s so cuddly soft and comfortable!  As soon as I was done trying on all of these clothes, THIS is what I wanted to wear!  The top is an oversized, relaxed fit and the bottoms have an elastic waist, drawstring cord and pockets!  The pale blue tie dye is so pretty!

    If I had your toned legs, I would rock shorts every.single.day! Mine are athletic and these quads sometimes have a mind of their own 🤣

    -fellow mom from Houston who understands the humidity here is no joke!

    You look great in your shorts- sad to see a woman try to shame another woman. Wear what make you happy- we should be supporting each other and not waste a minute trying to tear each other down!
    Thank you for the time and energy you put into your posts- I’ve purchased many things you have shown and have never been disappointed- have a great weekend, I plan on wearing my shortest shorts and spending some time in the sun 🙂

    Megan looks great in those jean shorts! I think the length is very appropriate for her. I’m not a fan of distressed clothing in general but that is just my personal taste.

    If she thinks your denim shorts are too short for the 40 plus crowd, she better stay out of my closet! 🙂 And don’t even get her started on my workout (*cough booty cough*) shorts!

    I love your blog and really appreciate the time and effort you put in to all of your posts. I agree with the previous commenter; it’s sad to see someone commenting just to be so judgmental.

    I have been a long time follower and applaud all of the good you put out into the world. Thank you!
