Hello friends and happy Friday! Today officially starts our Spring Break! Yay!! But, coronavirus. Boo!! Can you even believe all this craziness going around?! It’s hard to wrap my head around. I have a trip planned with my girlfriend to Puerto Rico next week, but now I’m not sure we’ll be able to go. We’ve really been looking forward to it, so I hope it’s okay.
With so many places closing down – even the annual Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo – I bet our school is next. We’ve already heard rumblings about it. And this is after we closed 8 days for whooping cough and also closed recently due to a water main break. What a mess! I’ve been washing my hands and Jordan’s like a madwoman. I pray everyone stays safe and healthy.
Now onto today’s Dressing Room post! I’ve started scouting the shorts for ya, and have lots of cute tops, a few new pair of jeans, the hottest camo joggers and even a pretty darned cute pair of denim overalls to share today. And, at the end of the post are more swimsuits and coverups! The maxi one is a Must Have!
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.
These brightly hued chino shorts caught my eye immediately (though they do come in neutrals too). They are a great 3.5 in inseam length, with pockets and can also be dressed up with a belt. On sale 50% off
Shorts Fit: I’m wearing a 0 and sit just above the hip.
The mojito graphic tee sure is cute and also a drink I enjoy! It would also keep you from getting pinched on St. Patrick’s Day! Extra 50% off
Tee Fit: I’m wearing an XS
You had me at stripes and cozy goodness. This pullover has that beachy feel and will be perfect right now or on a chilly summer evening. It’s got a ribbed neck and cuffs and also comes in solids.
Pullover Fit: I’m wearing an XS
Shorts Fit: I’m wearing a 25, runs small, I’d recommend sizing up 35% off
I’m crazy about this whole outfit! The shorts are darling with perfectly pastel stripes, a paper bag waist and pockets. Sizes are going fast!
Shorts Fit: I’m wearing a XS
The tee has beautiful eyelet and scallop detail with a slightly puffed, elastic hem sleeve. Super cute & 50% off
Tee Fit: I’m wearing an XS
JEANS, JOGGERS & OVERALLS OUTFITS
Well, these are supposed to be cropped jeans, but on me (5’1), not so much! I cuffed them hem and did like them that way! I liked the light wash and the fit and feel of them. More like a true jean without much stretch, but a comfortable high waist. 40% off
Jeans Fit : I’m wearing size 25
One of my go-to tees in a happy stripe v-neck tank version! It’ll be a wardrobe stape with both jeans and shorts this summer. Under $20
Tank Fit: I’m wearing an XS
These light wash skinny jeans are so comfy with lots of stretch to fit all your curves beautifully. They have a chewed, raw edge hem, but they were too long on me, so I cuffed that part under. If I decide to keep them, I’ll just cut them up myself with scissors. I could easily wear these all day – they feel that good.
Jeans Fit: I’m wearing a 25
Your basic crewneck tee is less basic in animal print. This one is actually navy on a a light ivory background, but still looks great with black accessories. 50% off
Tee Fit: I’m wearing an XS, runs small, I wish I got a small
You’ve seen this cami in a previous dressing room post, but I just wanted to share a new way to wear them with the gold skinny belt and thin Amazon flip flops. I like this easy, but still darling, outfit!
Cami Fit: I’m wearing an XS
While we’re at it, I’m reminded how good a simple white tee and skinny jeans look. Add a blazer and you’ve easily taken the look up a notch. The tee is that ultra soft, almost satiny feeling scoop neck and it’s nice and opaque.
Tee Fit: I’m wearing an XS
The blazer is from LOFT, actually a dark olive green (much more subtle and less severe than black). It’s a modern open style with notched lapels and 3/4 length sleeves. The site says you can even machine wash it! 40% off
Blazer Fit: I’m wearing an 0P
I’m 100% smitten with this white top. So feminine and pretty, right?! It’s a light, gauzy material with beautiful lace insert and eyelet detail. I also like the elastic waist with a slight peplum.
Blouse Fit: I’m wearing an XS
Oh yes I did! I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about overalls, but I like these! I tried on a pair at Madewell last year and it was laughable how bad they looked on me. But these, these are good. A great darker wash and modern cut with adjustable shoulder straps.
I like how they look with a tee and wedge heel, so you get some added height. 50% off (under $50)
Overalls Fit: I’m wearing an XXS and they could stand a little bit of skrinkage in the wash, so you might want to size down
We all love when pieces are versatile for multiple occasions. This sleek, no collar v-neck blouse will take you from work to weekend. The dotted pattern is nice and modern and it has a beautiful fit. 50% off
Top Fit: I’m wearing a 0
OMG, I love these joggers so much! They have a sturdy construction and elastic/zip cuffs at the bottom. They feel very well made and the cut is so chic.
STYLE TIP : You can treat camo as a neutral and pair it with other neutrals or a pop of color for a bold look. You can also wear a striped top with them.
Also, these joggers can be worn casually with sandals or more dressed up with a heel. It’s all about what shoe you wear and the style of your top. A clutch would add to the dressy look.
Fit : I sized down one to a size 24 for a more fitted fit.
PAJAMAS & LOUNGE
I could barely decide between this happy stripe or the lavender gingham in these pajamas. They come as a shorts set in a comfortable, soft cotton.
Pajama Fit: I’m wearing an XS, but they were a little tight across my back. I might size up if you are larger chested.
Oh man, GET THESE JOGGERS! I actually wore them out of the house to get a mani/pedi right after this try-on. #noshame! They’re probably more for lounging at home, but they are so dang comfortable, I didn’t want to take them off! Plus, it really made sense to wear them for a pedicure because they were easy to roll up when it came time for that leg massage! Maybe we’ll call them “pedicure pants” .
They made of a soft cozy signature yarn, with plenty of stretch and are also machine washable. They easily pull on with an elastic waist and functional drawstring tie. 40% off
Jogger Fit: I’m wearing an XXS
These sports bras arrived this week from Amazon and I couldn’t wait for my next Amazon post to share the goodness with you! They are called low impact sports bras on the website, but I prefer them for wearing when you want some support, but don’t feel like wearing a regular bra. They are AWESOME for that! They simply pull on over your head with a soft, wide underband and racerback back. You can also remove the padded cups if you prefer.
And if you’re the type that likes a “sleeping bra,” I think these will be your best friend.
Fit : I’m a 34D and the Medium fit perfectly
Sassy suit with one shoulder, but you can get some extra comfort with the removable/adjustable shoulder strap. It’s hard to tell in the photo, but this suit has alternating horizontal and vertical fine line texture and seaming that’s very flattering. (You can see it better on the website) Plus, it has a darling tie back and removable softly padded cups.
Swimsuit Fit : wearing size Small
I went back to the drawing board with this laser cut scallop suit. You might recall I got it in the one piece and also one shoulder top, but needed to size down. I found this bikini top that’s more supportive with two shoulder straps and it’s a definite keeper!
Bikini Top Fit: I’m wearing a Small
Bikini Bottom Fit: I’m wearing a XS
If you want a two piece with a fuller coverage top, you might like this one that’s almost like a halter sports bra. The keyhole tie is a cute touch. Here is an alternative top, if you prefer a more traditional top.
The bottom is also kinda sassy with the twist front, but it’s more full coverage in the back.
Bikini Top Fit: I’m wearing a Medium, but would prefer a small for more support.
Bikini Bottom Fit: I’m wearing a Small
ROAR! What a feisty animal print one piece! It’s a plunging v-neck with decent support and a wide waist seaming under the bust. It’s fully lined with removable cups.
Swimsuit Fit: I’m wearing a 2
These breezy pants are screaming vacay! A great alternative to a dress coverup, you can easily pull them on over your swimsuit. They’re a lightweight, gauzy material with an elastic waist and drawstring and will pack like a dream.
Pants Fit : Wearing size XXS
You can’t go wrong with a little mini coverup like this. It’s nice and thin, with adorable double criss cross straps in the back. Bonus, it has pockets!
Dress Fit: I’m wearing an XS
I’m calling this maxi coverup a Must Have because not only does it make a gorgeous cover-up, I think you can get away with wearing it as a dress for a summer party or evening out. It’s got a smocked top and long maxi skirt with beautiful crochet detail.
I didn’t even realize, but you can roll the smocked top part down to the waist, and wear it just as a maxi skirt! It also comes in a vibrant red!
