Hiya and comfortable Saturday, buddies! My youngsters have been off from faculty since Thursday, and I’ve been working sporadically, so this sorta seems like my third Saturday in a row. Every morning I wake up and should cease and assume which day it is. Not that I’m complaining…
In the present day I’ve obtained another version of try-ons and what I wore. I didn’t get to attempt as a lot this week as regular, however I’ll share what I’ve.
For anyone who is new, my stats are as follows: 5’5″ and 140# with an hourglass shape. I often wear a 6 or eight in pants, 28 or 29 in denims, small in tops, 8 in clothes, and eight or eight.5 in footwear. As standard, links and descriptions are BELOW the photographs.
I’m still making an attempt to get out of my denim rut, so I ordered a couple of clothes, jumpsuits, and another pair of shorts.
Caslon Utility Shorts (measurement 6) // I shared these in final week’s try-on publish, but these have been the dimensions eight, and these are the dimensions 6. As standard, with shorts, I’m someplace in between. I’ve broad hips and skinny legs, so I wrestle with shorts. In the event that they’re too extensive within the thigh, they appear frumpy, but neither do I would like them tight within the belly or the rear. Typcially it’s clever to measurement up one in shorts so you don’t have the wedgie concern, but I feel I’ll want the smaller measurement in these.
As a reminder from last week, these are the black ones within the measurement eight…
Caslon Utility Shorts (measurement 8) // It’s actually onerous to see particulars in black, but these are slightly too extensive in the thigh. That stated, they don’t danger a wedgie… haha!
Both means, I just like the shorts. They’ve a just-right 5″ inseam, with patch pockets in entrance and mitered flap pockets within the rear. The fabric is sturdy with out being stiff, they usually are available four nice neutrals.
also sporting: Caslon Rounded V-Neck Tee and Dolce Vita Cait Leopard Slide Sandals
AEO High-Waisted Tomgirl Denim Bermuda Shorts (measurement eight) // Consider it or not, that is the place denim shorts developments are going. The AG Nikki is analogous, but AEO has a a lot better worth point so I assumed I’d give these a attempt first.
What I DO like about them is that they’re not super long for Bermudas (the inseam is 7″) however I simply can’t get excited concerning the high waist “mom shorts” look any more than I can can get excited concerning the “mom denims” development. I imply, it’s even in my bio: “Pals don’t let buddies put on mom jeans.” Although I’ve debated including “even when they’re trending” to the top of that. Haha!
I also don’t love the acid wash on the AEO pair.
Right here’s the AG Nikki for comparability… these pix are from last yr.
AG Nikki Shorts (measurement 28) // I just like the wash on these lots higher, and I like the cuffed look in longer shorts. Although they’re distressed, I feel the cuff provides them a more completed look. Plus they have a 9″ inseam uncuffed, so cuffing them makes them a better length. I didn’t hold these final yr, however I’ll give them one other attempt if I can discover them on sale.
Treasure & Bond Sleeveless Twist Detail Gown (measurement small) // I hoped this gown can be a enjoyable casual various to shorts, however it’s sort of small and brief on me. I despatched it again, but I’ll order it once more in a medium. The colour is pretty, and the twist element is flattering.
additionally sporting: Soludos Slotted Thong Sandals (love! these are true to measurement)
BISHUIGE Ladies Summer time Informal T Shirt Clothes Seashore Cowl up Plain Pleated Tank Gown (measurement medium) // I just can’t with the product names on Amazon… but anyway. You might keep in mind that I attempted this on a number of weeks ago in the small, and I advised you it was too tight and was going again. I reordered in a medium, and it took like three weeks to reach. It got here straight from China and required a signature… for a $19 gown. So do with that info as you will. I do should marvel concerning the manufacturing unit circumstances and the ages of these employed…
Chatting with the merits of the item itself, it’s okay, however I don’t adore it. The match is a bit off for me. It’s minimize moderately low beneath the arms, and the skirt is sort of stiff and flares out in an unflattering method. I’d say it’s a swimsuit coverup at greatest.
That stated, pear-shaped women might like the fit. When you like fit-and-flare types, and you’re smaller chested, this could be actually cute on you. The fabric is good and thick, so there’s that.
Rock & Republic Utility Jumpsuit (measurement medium) // I had such high hopes for this jumpsuit. It’s product of a very gentle jersey material, which is snug to the point of pajamas, and I really like that is snaps up the entrance fairly than buttons.
Nevertheless, it runs really small and brief. I couldn’t even get the small on, and the medium is about an inch too brief for my short-waisted 5’5″ body — each within the bodice in addition to the inseam. Sadly, it’s going again, however when you’re petite, you need to undoubtedly attempt it.
Just be sure you pair it with footwear that don’t play into the pajama vibe. (I don’t assume my sandals have been the only option.) I feel this may look higher with a heel of some type.
Topshop Utility Shirtdress (measurement eight US) // Continuing with the utilitarian development… I assumed this utility shirtdress could possibly be a nice addition to my spring wardrobe, but I’m conflicted on whether or not I prefer it or not. I want it have been an inch longer, I know that.
Also the waist tie got here hooked up to the gown, so once I cinched it, it pulled material around from the again to the front — so it’s arduous to inform how it will match when it is indifferent. I didn’t need to detach it, and then determine to return it, so I’m caught not understanding if I like the match or not.
Whereas I like the thought of it, I feel those flap pockets on the boob are the deal breaker. They only look droopy and draw consideration to an space I don’t want attention drawn to. So, I feel it’s going back, BUT when you’re smaller on prime (and no taller than my 5’5″), you may like it.
1901 Square Neck Prime (measurement small) // I used to be drawn to this prime because of the square neckline, but it’s really comfortable and body-con, so if that’s not appealing to you, you gained’t like it. I feel it’s cute, but I want to attempt the subsequent measurement up.
Ding! Ding! Ding! Winner, winner, hen dinner!!!
Madewell High Rise Skinny Jeans (on sale for $69 at Nordstrom Rack!!!) // These denims are undoubtedly the perfect style discover in immediately’s try-on haul. In reality, I’m calling it now. These are formally THE BEST WHITE JEANS I’ve tried this yr… or perhaps ever.
I noticed one other blogger good friend extolling their virtues, so I decided to attempt them, and ohmyword, FINALLY! A pair of white jeans that fits properly and is not see-through in the slightest! I didn’t assume they existed, however lo and behold, Madewell did it. As an aside, I ordered a pair for my 16-year-old daughter, and she or he loves them too.
I’m in the 29 common, they usually have a 9″ entrance rise with a 28 half″ inseam. Additionally they are available petite, tall, and taller sizes at Madewell. In the event you’re 5’Four″ or shorter, go for petite. In the event you’re 5’9″ – 5’11”, go for the tall. Over 6 ft? Go for taller.
I was going to do an entire white denim evaluation submit, however now I feel it’s a moot level. Just purchase these jeans and be executed with it. If you will get your measurement on sale for $69 at Nordstrom Rack, grab them right now, but I might completely pay full retail for these. Sadly there are only regular sizes on the Rack.

They’re really lightweight and cozy, they usually also are available blush.
This week was a bit of a blur, and I’m not even positive what I was doing each day. Principally daily was mundane errands and appointments, chauffeuring youngsters around, and working from house, so I’m not going to aim to inform you the place I wore these outfits…
Everlane cotton sweater // Mom skinnies // Tory Burch ballet flats // necklace (bought out) // earrings
What I can inform you is, I might wear this outfit day-after-day if I might. These Mother jeans have damaged in shortly and are tremendous snug, and you’ve seen this sweater approximately 50 occasions already this spring. The TB flats are previous faithfuls, and I added a number of items of jewellery to maintain the look informal but put-together.
