Fitting Room Favorites

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I wanted to take a minute to share some of my recent fitting room favorites with you. You guys seem to love these - is it because they feel the most in-the-moment?

Either way, I love them too. Almost as much as I love this Topshop eyelet sleeve tee. For real. This tee might be my new favorite. I've already worn it several times from date night to work to casual weekend—it's perfect for everything. I like a bit of a looser fit so I went with the US 4. It also comes in black and I currently have it in my cart because it's that good. And I want to pair it with my new olive shorts. If you get one new piece this month, let this be the one.

I'm not a huge dress wearer but I love having easy pieces for those throw-on-and-go summer days. This little French Connection stripe t-shirt dress is just that. It's crazy comfy thanks to its 100% cotton terry material and, hello—pockets. If a dress has pockets isn't it instantly 100% cooler? I thought so. I spent an entire Sunday lounging around in this dress but you could also easily dress it up with some wedges if you wanted to.

Admittedly, I don't normally go for color but there was something about this Topshop embroidered tee I fell in love with. Those little roses, probably? Yes. They actually had it in white but I thought I should branch out just a little, so I went with this pink, which looks slightly brighter & more corally in this photo. I did notice they also have it in black and grey online and I've fallen for the grey. It's a cropped fit but I tend to like shorter silhouettes and it works well with high-rise denim or cutoff shorts for the season. I'm wearing the US 4!

Out of all of these Nordstrom pieces, this Topshop floral wrap dress was actually the only one that didn't come home with me. But I still loved it! I think a wrap silhouette is really flattering on every frame, however, this dress was a size too big on me and I couldn't get past the fit on top. I think the excess material made it feel a little more robe-like than I wanted, especially because I'm so small on top. BUT, I think snagging it in your normal size would alleviate this and it's really such a flirty little number. 

I also popped into Anthropologie and grabbed this cute little ruffled cami. I love the rose tone and detail to make it a little something extra than your average camisole. I went with size xs!

Thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend!

February Fitting Room Favorites

Happy Wednesday! I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day. It's been a while since I've done a fitting room favorites update so I wanted to take the time to do it this week because I found some pretty perfect new pieces. 

Everyone needs the perfect white top. Preferably lots of them. With lace. And a peplum. This top has it ALL, you guys, and it couldn't be more perfect if it tried. Hands down my favorite of the bunch, I swear you need this one. I've already worn it with black distressed denim and my favorite suede moto jacket and can't wait to take it into spring. I'm wearing a small here but ended up ordering an xs. You need it. I promise. 

Of all the trends happening this past year, my two favorites are easily the cold-shoulder/off-shoulder trend and lace-up details. This J.O.A cotton top has the best of both worlds and is another easy piece to finish out the winter and take into spring. The grey tone is the perfect light neutral and it's easy to dress up or down. Perfect with black denim and a faux leather jacket for night. I'm wearing an xs. 

The wrap top is one of those universally flattering styles and I never knew it until I bought my first one last year. It's such a feminine silhouette and I swear it makes you feel instantly pretty. I love the barely there blush tone of this one by June & Hudson. I had to try it on in a medium (shown here) but you can see it's bunching quite a bit, so I ordered an xs. It would be perfect for work under a blazer or layered over a pencil skirt, too. 

The side button detail on this Madewell sweater is my favorite and really makes the sweater—aside from the fact that it's actually crazy comfy. I love the "dusty clay" tone and again how perfectly it will transition into spring with white denim. I'm wearing an xs.

Finally, I love a twist on a plain white tee and this one by Topshop has the prettiest lace hem—and sleeves! It also comes in black and blush but I love the white for a twist (and feminine touch) on a classic. I usually size up in Topshop and I'm wearing a US 4 here. 

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week!

Fitting Room Diaries: November

Hi, friends! I wanted to share another round of Fitting Room Diaries. Fitting rooms make it so much easier to instantly share my new favorites without needing a photographer, ie., making someone else take my pic. 

This first look features my new favorite Sincerely Jules top from Nordstrom. I'm a huge fan of Sincerely Jules (her blog and Instagram), but this is my first piece from her clothing line. I've always loved her laid-back, California-casual style and this top is totally that with a boho-feminine touch. It's one of those can't-help-but-twirl-in pieces and I love that. I'm wearing an XS. 

My boots are also part of the Nordstrom Fall Clearance Sale

I've been a big fan of lace-up everything this year and I'm loving adding sweaters to my lace-up collection. This one by J.O.A is the perfect neutral to pair with everything.

I've wanted to get my hands on this Blank NYC Morning Faux Suede Jacket ever since the #nsale and I FINALLY tried it on in-store in my size (xs). I love the grey, but since I already have a couple faux leather styles in grey, I'm holding out for the coffee—there are tons of new colors, though!

Finally, I popped into Gap and while I didn't end up with anything I DID snap a quick outfit pic. I'm so glad I snagged this tan faux suede moto jacket from Shopbop in their surprise sale and it's STILL a steal at under $100. I'm wearing a size XS and it's so soft, not bulky and easy-to-wear.

Fitting Room Diaries: October

I hope your October is going well! My sister's wedding is less than two weeks away, so mine has been busy, busy as I prep for that—it's in Mexico!—but I really can't wait! I did want to blog some of my recent fitting room finds for you, though. These seem to be some of my most popular posts on Instagram, so I figured it would be good to do a roundup. 

First up is my new favorite olive wrap top shown above. Honestly, I don't think I've ever owned a wrap top, but I'm 100% a new convert. It's so flattering and the perfect color for the season. Great for work under a blazer, casual wear with jeans and flats or paired with a faux leather jacket and booties for a night out. I'm wearing an XS.

My next favorite is this tank. I'm a big fan of basics and honestly, I don't think I've ever loved a tank more. It's a swing style, but I love it knotted to give it a bit more shape. I've been a big fan of knotting knits lately—it's like an easier version of a half tuck. It's SO soft and the perfect base for cardigans and all those faux suede jackets this season. In the white top, I'm wearing an XS and I actually went back and snagged it in grey in a size large (!) and still love, love the fit—a bit more relaxed. My cardigan is also from Gap, but I couldn't find it online!! 

Another one from Gap and my first official sweater of the season—this grey tone is my favorite and it's ultra-soft and cozy. It's slightly slouchy but looks great with a half-tuck again for a bit more shape and structure. I'm wearing an XS. 

I'm a huge fan of peplums for their feminine flair. This one from Nordstrom is feminine with a bohemian touch—a bit of a peasant top but fitted through the waist. Again, another great one for work, casual wear and a night out. I'm wearing an XS. 

I hope you enjoy the rest of your October!
