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!

April Fitting Room Favorites

You guys, spring style at Nordstrom right now is insane. I have been obsessing over all the pretty tops and wanted to share my top favorites from a recent try-on. For whatever reason, you guys seem to like these better than any other type of outfit shot, so here goes.

My first favorite is this blush pink J.O.A lace one-shoulder top. One thing I really love is that I don't think I've ever seen another top like this. To start, one-shoulder styles are somehow harder to come by amidst all the cold and off-shoulder styles. Plus, it's obviously the prettiest pink. It'll be perfect for Easter or really any springtime event from day to night. White denim, blue jeans or shorts and sandals. One thing to note—I seem to have to size up in this brand with tops that have a zipper. The xs fit but for some reason wouldn't zip, so I sized up to the small.

You've probably seen this linen cold-shoulder top floating around Instagram and with good reason because it really is the cutest style. It definitely has that oversized feel (I'm wearing a small) but it's so flirty and fun you can't help but feel happy in it, I swear. 

I'm also obsessed with this ASTR the Label off-shoulder blouse. This is another one of those styles I don't see much—if ever! It has these split "bracelet" sleeves that are soo pretty and give it this really great breezy and romantic vibe. I'm dying to wear this with black distressed denim and my tassel strappy heels. It comes in a bunch of colors and even prints (like floral!) but I really love the effortless vibe of this dusty blue. I'm wearing an xs.

I can never resist a little white top (see above) and I almost didn't even try this one on because I didn't think it would blow me away but it totally did! It's definitely feminine but somehow also has this casual-cool vibe to it. It'll be amazing with cutoff shorts this summer and i. can.t. wait. Wearing the xs in this one, too, and last time I checked it was 40% off! 

What styles are you loving for spring?

I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving! I wanted to take a minute to review some of my favorite Black Friday finds with you all. One of my favorite purchases from last year was this Halogen cashmere sweater and it's back on sale and a steal at $55. It comes in 15 colors and I'm wearing an xs. I also found this Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel in the color "tawny" on sale, which is so close to my almond one. This is my "goes-with-everything" bag and fits my Macbook Air perfectly. I linked my sunglasses on sale, too!

I almost never met a feminine top I didn't like. I looooove this one from Topshop (the color is a bit more pink in person) and it's another steal at $30. I'm wearing a US 2. 

 Black Friday Sale Items: Sweater:  Madewell . Jeans:  Current/Elliott

This Madewell rolled turtleneck is maybe the softest I've ever worn. I love the neutral tone and how cozy it is. I'm actually wearing a medium because that's all they had in store, but I plan to order a small. I normally wear an xs, but I prefer the relaxed fit, so consider sizing up if you're the same. It's on sale for $52. I'm also obsessed with these Current/Elliott Stiletto jeans. I've never worn this brand, but they're SO comfy and I love the distress. I'm wearing my normal size. They run a little big through the waist (at least on me), but they fit so well otherwise, so I can deal or wear a belt. :)

Next purchase was this Forever21 faux suede jacket in olive—only $25, so I grabbed it in black too. (oops) It looks more like grey here, but it's definitely a soft olive and I really love it. I'm wearing a small. 

 Black Friday Sale Item: Jacket:  BlankNYC

Black Friday Sale Item: Jacket: BlankNYC

I actually bought this BlankNYC faux leather moto this past spring and it's now back in stock and on major sale—$51! It's one of my favorite brands for faux leather and I always wear an xs in their outerwear. I have this jacket in black too and love it, but I like the grey for a bit of a changeup and how it feels lighter for wear for every season. BlankNYC is also always my go-to for nights out.

 Black Friday Sale Item: OTK Boots:  Steve Madden .

Finally, I got TWO new pairs of boots. I didn't get a picture quite yet, but I grabbed this perfect pair of Franco Sarto block heel ankle boots with the cutest buckle detail. I love them a lot, but what I'm really, REALLY excited about is these Steve Madden over-the-knee boots. I have the hardest time ever finding tall boots that are fitted through the legs without any sort of bunching and gapping. I didn't want to spend $800 on the Stuart Weiztman Lowland, but I love these as a dupe. Sorry for the poor pic and showing them against black denim, but they're definitely the sleekest I've found and are a great price—just $96!

Oh and then I bought two Rebecca Minkoff bags from Shopbop that I've been needing and wanting—a crossbody in almond and one in mushroom. My go-to, goes-with-everything favorite styles!

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

 Top:  J.O.A.  Jeans:  Paige

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!
