Dressing Room 5.13.22

Hi friend! YAY for Friday!  One more t-ball game on the agenda and then we’re sports free for the summer!  I am considering more swim lessons for the kids, such an important lifelong skill.

It’s also getting so hot here, so we’ll probably head to the pool to get some relief.  Do you have any fun plans?

We had a great week on the blog, if you missed it I shared a brand new Loves Giveaway (enter here), my new fitness goal, the best sales, and my living room tour.

Amazon Live was full of affordable swimsuits, both one pieces and bikinis, plus a variety of coverups.  And I always love sharing my Tuesday Goodies with you!

DRESSING ROOM

I branched out and ordered several things from Bloomingdale’s that were big hits.  I love shopping my usual favorites like Loft and Nordstrom, but sometimes you just need a change and are ready for new, different styles.

I used to think of Bloomingdale’s as super expensive and unapproachable, but I have found several brands there that are comparable to Nordstrom prices.  I also find their website easy to shop with big, clear photos.  It’s where I found this dress that I wore in Mexico and this top that y’all liked with the wide leg pants.

Best of all, Bloomingdale’s styles have more inventory and sizes than I’m finding at Nordstrom lately, and they ship really fast!  Plus, they offer 90 day FREE returns!

Right now, Bloomingdale’s is giving $25 up to $600 in gift cards with purchases of $125 or more.

This post also has a few pieces from Walmart and flattering swimsuits from Anthropologie, along with a pair of MUST HAVE jeans from Nordstrom, so a little bit of everything!

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

Bloomingdales Smocked Floral Top, Jeans, Wedges

Let’s start with the jeans because as soon as I put them on, I was thinking, “why haven’t I been wearing these everyday?” Honestly, it’s because I had forgotten about them.  In my old house, I had my jeans organized really well and even labeled by brand.  I haven’t gotten around to doing that yet here, but now it’s on my list!

The jeans are SO COMFORTABLE!  They’re by Wit & Wisdom with a high waist, slight whiskering and a raw edge hem with a darling little side slit.  They fit and flatter and feel so good on! I’m crazy for them!

The top is a fun find from Bloomingdale’s.  It’s a gorgeous bold floral pattern against a dark background.  The top is smocked with cute ruffled shoulders and the bottom is sheer and also dotted with polka dots.  So many fun ways to style this one because you can pick up any of the colors in the top and pair it with jeans, shorts or pants.

This top has date night written all over it, but is also polished enough for the office.  It has a lovely structure to it and is fully lined, zipping up in the back.  It has a deep v front, but isn’t too revealing and the peplum shape flatters every frame.  The crochet details are exquisite!

I also liked this flirty white eyelet top.  It’s a crop length, but not too short with your high waist jeans.  I like the flowy, easy to wear style and the combination of florals, eyelet and scallop trim.  So so cute for Summer!

How bold and happy is this sunshine yellow?!  It’s hard to be in a bad mood when you’re wearing this color. It’s a fun take on the traditional white eyelet and looks great with jeans and shorts.

Speaking of shorts, I tried this pair from Walmart and really liked them, but I wish I had sized down because they run large.  The style is super cute for weekends with a raw edge hem, a bit of distressing and a cool blue color.

The Summer sweater is also from Walmart and one that pairs perfectly with jean shorts.  It has a bell sleeve and you could layer a cami underneath, but I’m just wearing a regular flesh toned bra to show you how that looks.

DRESSES

Red Tiered Dress Walmart

Dress

SO CRAZY for this little red party dress!  It’s such a vibrant color and regular bra friendly with the square neck and ruffled shoulders.  The short skirt has some volume to it that lends to the playfulness.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Floral Smocked Maxi Dress

Floral DressSandals

Isn’t the colors and pattern on this dress stunning?!  It’s almost like a watercolor floral painting.  The mix of purple, red, green and yellow all work together and it’s a chifon material with a smocked bodice.

It’s weird though, they sent me an XL.  Although it looks like it fits pretty well, it’s actually loose on me, so I recommend ordering your true size.

 Yellow Dress, Sandals

If you have a Summer brunch or shower coming up, this could be the dress you wear.  It’s a lovely yellow and white with a mix of both horizontal and vertical stripes.  The double ruffled bodice is flirty and I like how the smocked waist is so figure flattering.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Swirl Mini Dress, Sandals

DressSandals

More party vibes here!  This one feels kinda retro to me with the pattern and colors, maybe a 70’s throwback?!  It’s a soft chiffon type material with a sassy one shoulder and then a ruffled shoulder on the other side.  It comes with the coordinating tie belt and is fully lined.

Red and White Striped Dress, Sandals

I love this dress!  The shape, colors and pattern all work for a chic girls night out or birthday lunch.  You could dress it up with statement earrings and a fun clutch. The only issue I had with it was that it felt tight across my back when I pulled my arms forward.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Shift Dress, Sandals

DressSandals

This dress looks so similar to this one on Social Threads and this one on Bloomingdale’s!  But mine is from Walmart.  It’s a gauzy, textured knit, easy to wear style that slips on over your head.  It does run big and was really large on me, so definitely size down.

Swimsuit

Y’all! I am so excited for the swimsuits I found!  Several WINNERS and MUST HAVES!  The first three one piece swimsuits are from Bloomingdale’s and they have an AMAZING selection of swimsuits!  

This one is all black, trimmed with a colorful piping, placed for ultra flattering benefit. The top has sewn in molded cups that give you a nice shape and you can remove the shoulder straps if you want to wear it bandeaux style.

Striped One Piece Swimsuit

Another WINNER!  How cute is this pink and white?! I removed the shoulder straps so you could see how it looks without them.  Again, there are molded cups inside to give you a lift and the back is flattering as well.  Plus, the color is so pretty in person.

Tres chic madam!  This one is so stylish and feels amazing on! The horizontal seamed rows are ultra flattering to your silhouette and the plunging neckline gives it a little va va voom.  Yet, it’s not too much for pool time with the kids.  Also, the back is so cute!  It’s got a triple criss cross strap!

Floral One Piece Swimsuit

SwimsuitHat

This is a va va voom swimsuit, hits higher on the legs, but still a one piece and it’s reversible!  It has a cool cutout back with a criss cross that almost looks like a two-piece back. The shoulder straps are removeable and the print and color are gorgeous in person.

Smocked Bikini

Bikini TopBottomsHat

I had to try this two-piece, being so intrigued with the puff sleeve top and the high waist bottoms.

I was worried the sleeves would overwhelm a petite frame, but I think it works for a dressed up suit.  The high waist bottoms are so comfortable and also give you the illusion of longer legs with the high cut.

And, the print and mix of colors are so chic!

How about this sporty two-piece?! It’s a ribbed texture and very easy to wear.  The shoulder straps on the top are adjustable.

Striped Ruffle Bikini

Bikini TopBottomsHat

This striped ruffled bikini is too cute if you dare to bare!  The top slips over your head and isn’t adjustable and the bottoms sit lower on your hips.  I like the sherbet inspired colors and thought the ruffles were a sweet touch.

Top Fit: I’m wearing a Medium, prefer Large

Bottoms Fit: I’m wearing a Small 

Leopard Swimsuit Top, Swim shorts, Hat. Sandals

These hot pink high waist terry cloth shorts are fun as an outfit or cover up.  They’re super comfy with pockets and a smocked waist.

Here they are paired with the Walmart sweater.  An easy lounge outfit.
