For anybody who is new, I’m a 46-year-old wife and mother of three and full time blogger. I work at home so my wardrobe is pretty informal, but I still wish to have a couple of dressier pieces for church, date nights, and events which may crop up.
I’m 5’5″ and slightly below 140# (all the time making an attempt to get to 135) with a short-waisted, hourglass shape. I often put on a small in tops, 6 or 8 (28 or 29) in jeans and pants, and an 8 in clothes. Once I say something is TTS, meaning True To Measurement.
Attempt On Haul: J.Crew Manufacturing unit, Nordstrom, Trunk Club & LOFT
Let get began! All links and descriptions are underneath the photographs.
J.Crew Attempt On Haul
This primary set is from J.Crew Manufacturing unit, they usually presently have 40-60% off a big number of their website, prices as marked. When you place an order, I highly advocate signing up for J.Crew Rewards.

(FYI, J.Crew has 30% off full-price types this weekend with code LUCKYYOU.)
J.Crew Striped open-neck cami prime (measurement small) // This is just a primary stripe tank to wear alone or layered beneath a cardigan, and I like it. The material is good and thick and stretchy, and I just really just like the stripe pattern. One thing concerning the width of the stripes is just-right. It’s nice and excessive underneath the arms (exhausting to seek out in tank tops!) so my bra doesn’t present.
Whereas I feel this appears okay in footage, it’s a bit comfortable for my comfort degree, so I’ve ordered the medium to attempt to examine. I feel will probably be a greater match and in addition permit for shrinkage. For $14, you’ll be able to’t beat it! FYI, it additionally is available in yellow and white stripe.
J.Crew Mercantile Ladies’s White Denim Shorts (measurement 28) // I’ve been ordering a ton of shorts in preparation for my shorts evaluation submit coming quickly to the blog! I didn’t attempt many on for this submit, but I did pull these on since they worked properly with a number of of the tops I ordered. I’m very happy with these shorts. They’ve a cushty high rise, they usually’re gentle but not thin. I don’t really feel they’re too see-through, they usually’re not tremendous white. They’re extra of an off-white, which is good for a change.
They’ve a three half″ inseam, which I personally like on me, however I might be making an attempt longer lengths in my shorts evaluate so there’s something for everyone. I’m within the 28, and I often measurement as much as a 29 in shorts, so I’d say they run TTS or measurement down if in between. Additionally, these shorts are presently on sale for $22.50.
Tory Burch Miller Sandals (measurement Eight) // These aren’t new, however I all the time get a ton of questions about these this time of yr so I assumed I’d handle those here.
First, everybody needs to find out about sizing. Lots of people advocate sizing up, however I take my normal 8. That stated, I typically measurement right down to a 7.5 in sandals, so perhaps that does mean sizing up.
Next, individuals typically ask about comfort and help. I find these sandals incredibly snug. Once I slide them on, I really feel like I simply got here residence. (Ha!) Significantly, although. I get so joyful once I can escape my Millers out for the spring/summer time season. That stated, they don’t have help. They’re undoubtedly a flat sandal, so when you’ve got finicky ft, they is probably not for you.
The other question I get so much is about shade: Sand Patent or Makeup. I’ve each (which sounds ridic, I do know.) I had the sand patent first, and now that I’ve both, I principally put on my sand patent ones to the nail salon once I’m getting a pedicure, the pool, the seashore, anyplace that they might get tousled because this stuff are nearly indestructible. I put on my makeup pair with my everyday outfits in the course of the spring and summer time.
I do just like the make-up shade higher, however should you’re apprehensive about put on and tear, go together with the sand patent. They’re each great neutrals.
Also, the quality is outstanding. I can’t consider what mine have held as much as through the years — particularly the patent pair. I swear they nonetheless look new. The make-up pair does have some staining on the footbed as a result of I’m careless and slide them on once I’ve been walking around barefoot, however otherwise they nonetheless look great as nicely. Sure, they’re a piece of change, but on a price per put on basis, mine are mere pennies at this level.
These footwear never go on sale — a minimum of not the popular colors — so your greatest guess is to purchase them when you will get a bonus factors supply of some type. They’re presently part of the Bloomingdale’s Power Factors supply: Loyallists get a $25 Reward Card for each $100 you spend on gadgets labeled “LOYALLIST POWER POINTS.” Sadly they’re priced slightly below the $200 mark, but when you throw in a pair of socks, it can get you over the $200 so you will get a $50 reward card.
Also, FYI, Bloomingdale’s sends Reward Cards out inside a number of days of purchase. They don’t make you wait weeks or months like some retailers do.
J.Crew Tie-sleeve button-up shirt (measurement small) // I used to be drawn to this stripe shirt as a result of it doesn’t have a collar as most button-up types do, and it has the cutest bow element on the sleeves. (Collars irritate me. I feel it’s due to the length of my hair — they all the time appear to be in the best way.)
Anyway, this prime is actually cute, it’s light-weight and the colors are so pretty for spring. You possibly can also put on it with jeans or pink or yellow pants, but I threw it on with these white shorts for this publish. It runs TTS; the small matches me perfectly, and it’s on sale for $26.
My situation with button-up shirts is all the time what to do with the hem. I tried styling it a couple of methods… first untucked.
Then with a full entrance tuck.
And then the half front-tuck. This is the current approach to put on it, but I all the time really feel just a little try-hard once I do that. What do you say?

J.Crew Textured stripe shirtdress (additionally on Amazon; measurement small) // I assumed this shirtdress might be a nice piece to have; I don’t sometimes put on shirt clothes, however the colours on this are so fairly, and again with the collar points… there are none! I additionally like the neckline — the slender V is flattering but still modest, holding it work applicable.
It’s TTS; the small is an effective match, and for $34, I feel it’s a superb worth.
I attempted it first with white pumps (Sam Edelman Hazel Pumps are my go-to; good high quality and so snug) after which dressed down with white sneakers…
These are my Veja Esplar sneakers. I really like them, but they’re actually onerous to seek out all the sudden. Your greatest greatest is Saks. They’re the one retailer the place I can discover them absolutely stocked, and you will get free delivery with code FREESHIP.

I know a few of you don’t, and that’s superb too. To every her own!

J.Crew Flutter-sleeve faux-wrap prime (measurement 6) // This prime is absolutely pretty and flattering — good for work or church. I recognize the “fake wrap” styling — it’s tacked at just the correct place on the chest so it doesn’t gape open on these of us who’re more well-endowed, but I have to measurement up to the 8. It’s undoubtedly too small.
Quality clever, the fabric is slightly flimsy, however for the worth (it’s $17!!!) I feel it’s a superb worth. I simply re-ordered within the measurement 8, so I’ll hold you posted on how that matches!
