DRESSING ROOM | 5.3.21

Hi friends!  Welcome to a brand new week!  Did you do anything fun this weekend?  Mine was very chill.  Friday, I worked out and measured my progress on my fitness challenge.  If you want to follow along, sign up here.  I send out detailed updates every Sunday!

I got to rest and relax most of the day on Saturday, and Sunday we celebrated Brian’s friend’s birthday at Benihana.  I haven’t been there in forever, but two girlfriends told me they love the ginger dressing, so I had to try it- they were right, it’s really good!  And since it’s habachi, I was able to stick to my meal plan. #winwin 

DRESSING ROOM

For today’s post, we’re stepping into the dressing room and I have outfits from Loft, Nordstrom and Express.  I’d love to hear what other retailers you like to shop.  Let me know in the comments!

JEWELRY WORN: NecklaceWrap Bracelet

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

Dressing Room Finds LOFT Chambray Top and Plaid shorts, Studded Sandals

Chambray TopShortsSandals

Yes, we’re still loving the colorful checkered paperbag waist shorts.  All the colors in them make it easy to coordinate with different tops.  I’ve worn it with a tank and bodysuit in the past, but this chambray top also looks great with it!  I like how the ruffle sleeve isn’t gaping under your arm.  And the scoop neck shows off your necklace.

Style tip : this top would look fantastic with white jeans and sandals

This striped top has Madewell vibes, but it’s from Loft.  It’s nice and relaxed with a flowy style that looks best untucked.  The colors are kind of muted, not vibrant.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS in Bossa Nova Red 

If you like your shorts a tad longer, these have a 3-inch inseam, but also a high rise and frayed hem with minimal distressing.

Shorts Fit: They run a bit larger, I’m wearing a 24 Regular in Rich Indigo

I like these shorts for a more dressed up weekend outfit.  The shorts are structured with a zip, flat front.  No pockets means a more streamlined look and you can wear them with a top tucked in or worn out.

The top is conservative and would translate from work to weekend well.  It has sweet details like a ruffled neck, smocked chest and puff, elastic sleeve.

And if you want to wear shorts for an evening out, these silky patterned shorts are a great option.  They have a high rise and come with a coordinating belt.  I’m wearing them with a bodysuit and strappy heels and think Brian would like it! 😉  A jean jacket would dress it down and keep you warm while a black blazer would keep it dressy.

Heels Fit : Narrow in the top strap, I returned my true size (shown here) and am ordering a 1/2 size up to see how that works

By the way, this bodysuit is AWESOME!  The material feels so good and it has a comfortable full, snap bottom.  I have them in every color.  Use code HONEY15 for 15% off.

Bodysuit Fit : I have both XXS and XS and both work for me

JEANS OUTFITS

Dressing Room Finds, Black and White Top, White Jeans, Heels

I also found some great white jeans to share with you.  Now is the time of year we’re itching to wear them and they look so fresh!   This pair is by Wit & Wisdom with their ab-solution technology that keeps you feeling slim and tucked in at the waist.  They’re a crop length with a 10-inch rise.

The top is fully embroidered with a smocked check and flutter sleeve.  Black and white is such a classic combo!

You’ve seen me in this sweater tank before, but it’s so versatile and goes with everything! I’m liking the “orange spritz” color and it has a little front pocket to dress it up.   I’ve worn it with everything from blue to white jeans, these shorts and you’ll see with a skirt below.

Sweater Tank Fit: I’m wearing a small 

The white tie waist tapered pants are a fun change from jeans and give you legs for days!  It’s the high waist and seam down the front that creates the illusion of a longer leg line.

Pants Fit: I’m wearing a 0 and prefer 00

Dressing Room Finds, Off the Shoulder top, Skinny Jeans, Heels

TopJeansHeels

If you like to show off your shoulders (such a sexy look), you’ll like this top.  The elastic stays put comfortably, and then it has a longer sleeve so you don’t feel too exposed.  I like it with a little tuck and skinny jeans for date night, but it would also look great untucked with shorts for a weekend soiree.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS 

The jeans are by Kut from the Kloth, one of my favorite budget-friendly brands.  They have no rips or distressing, which I know some of you prefer.  I’m leaning more and more that way too.  They fit like a dream and have enough stretch to hug your curves and be comfortable all day.  The back construction makes your booty look good too! 40% off

Jeans Fit: I’m wearing a 0, prefer 0P

This sheer striped blouse looks great with a cami underneath and you could wear it with pants to the office or with jeans like pictured.  It’s collar-free so more on the relaxed side.

I really love this outfit and may wear it to our next girls’ birthday dinner!  It’s voluminous with puffed sleeves, a collar and hidden buttons.  Since it’s got a lot of volume on top, I kept the jeans skinny to balance it out.

Hello girls’ night out!  Isn’t this top pretty?!  It even has a bit of shimmer in it.  It’s full of romance with the pleats, double peplum and ruffled sleeves.

I wore this top to our friends’ birthday dinner on Sunday evening.  I felt feminine and pretty in it!  It’s a beautiful shade of pink with a paisley pattern.  The top criss crosses, then ties at the side with just a slight puff at the sleeve and figure flattering peplum.

The skirt also pairs well with this feminine white blouse.  It’s got lots of textured detail and in a cotton-modal blend that’s lightweight for hot, summer months.

I’ve found these Amazon belts are fun to mix and match and create new looks with.  They come in a pack of four and are stretchy without designated holes, so you can buckle it wherever is your perfect fit!

I wore this on date night last week with two other couples when we went for Mexican food at Ninfa’s.  The eyelet skirt is darling and flat sandals and a jean jacket keeps it casual.  It’s also fully lined.

OMG, how cute is this dress?!  It’s also black eyelet with sweet detail throughout.  The peachy colored one is cute too!

Don’t hate me, I just checked and this dress is sold out- but sometimes they restock, so I’ll keep it in because it’s really a great dress!  It’s midi length in front and slightly longer in the back.  It has a relaxed silhouette and pretty chambray color with white embroidery.  It’s perfect for weekend shopping and strolling with the ladies or a brunch.

This one is similar in solid pink!

And how lovely is this white dress?!  It has Summer written all over it!  It’s fully lined with a smocked bodice, puff sleeves and pockets!  I feel like I should be carrying fresh flowers in a woven bag with this!

Oh man, if you saw my Day in the Life Story, you know I had some troubles trying on this skirt.  Well, that’s because there’s bike shorts underneath!  I forgot and was wondering why it wasn’t going up so easy! But, once I had it on, I really liked it!  The material is a performance flex fabric that feels silky smooth against your skin.  It also has pockets and a stretchy, elastic waistband.

The shorts underneath make it perfect for tennis, workouts or even running errands.

The tank is by Zella, with a scoop neck and ribbed.  It’s on the thicker side with lots of stretch.

I hope this post gave you some wardrobe inspiration for your own closet.  I have so much fun putting these outfits together for you! You can find all my Dressing Room posts here, and all Amazon Dressing Room posts here. I’m looking forward to seeing you tomorrow with Vacation Vibes!

Now let’s go kick Monday’s booty!

      They are! They don’t offer as much padding as say, Sam Edelman, for example, but they don’t hurt my feet and are easy to walk in.
