Cargo pants are trending once more this season, with the utility development being all the fashion, and I’ve all the time been a fan so I’m glad to see they’re again. This pair combines the cargo type with a jogger, which makes them additional fashionable. Two developments for the worth of one!
They’re cute, I assume, however maintain on because I have two more pairs to point out you…
PAIGE Mayslie Slim Cargo Pants (measurement 29) // Sorry, these footage are getting grainy as a result of the order arrived late yesterday afternoon and I didn’t have a lot daylight left.
I actually like this pair; the material is a bit heavier and darker than the Sanctuary pair. These are more snug too, for some cause. They could have a bit extra stretch than the Sanctuary pair. I feel like they’re barely extra flattering as nicely — particularly from the rear view.

Joie Okana Skinny Cargo Pants (measurement 29) // Aaaaaand depart it to me to like the priciest pair greatest. I’ve truly had my eye on these Joie cargo pants for a while, but I didn’t need to pay the price. Once I noticed them on sale, I couldn’t resist at the least making an attempt them. That’s once I found the opposite two pairs.
I feel I want the non-jogger fashion. It’s more basic and just a little extra me. I didn’t assume I’d just like the pockets on the thighs, but I truly don’t thoughts them, and I feel these pants are super flattering. As you’ll be able to see above, I attempted a couple of totally different shoe options for the fun of it.

Caslon Dolman Sleeve Tee // I ended into Nordstrom someday and tried on a couple of issues. I assumed this prime can be cuter on than it is. Ha! I prefer it in principle, nevertheless it’s type of tight on the bottom and too massive on the prime. It’s also very lengthy. I’m sporting a measurement small, and I don’t assume sizing right down to an XS would assist as a result of it will be too tight at the bottom. All that to say, it didn’t come house with me.
Caslon Linen Pants // I’m not an enormous fan of this type of pant, but they’re such a great choice for spring and summer time, so I made a decision to attempt them. They’re verrrry long on me. The smalls have been too tight within the tush, so I’m sporting a medium. Both have been too lengthy, although.
If I beloved the fit, I’d have them hemmed, however since I choose pants which are extra fitted in the thighs, I left them within the retailer. The quality is good, and the worth is fairly good, so when you need a pair of pants like this, they’re value a attempt. These have a 32″ inseam, on your reference, and the petite version has a 29″ inseam.
J.Crew New Good Match Tee (measurement medium) // I like the fabric and the minimize of this shirt so much. It’s thicker and extra form-fitting than most tees which are out proper now, but one way or the other they do it with out it wanting matronly. I also really just like the longer arm length.
That stated, I’m not an enormous fan of the crewneck. I do put on it typically, but on this case, I feel I’d choose a scoop or a v-neck, or perhaps a boatneck fashion.
Caslon Linen Pants (measurement medium) // I’m not an enormous fan of this type of pant, but they’re such a great choice for spring and summer time, so I decided to attempt them. They’re verrrry lengthy on me. The smalls have been too tight in the tush, so I’m sporting a medium. Each have been too lengthy, although.

Halogen Extensive Leg Crop Pants (measurement small) // I requested my Trunk Membership stylist to ship me some cropped pants to attempt along with some tops that work with them. I wasn’t impressed with these. The best way the bow sits proper on my belly, where I tend to carry some additional weight just doesn’t seem to do anything for me.
Rebecca Taylor Celina Silk Prime (measurement 6) // This prime is GORG-OUS however it’s also expensive and I know i wouldn’t get the fee per wear out of it, as I tend to decorate casually 95% of the time. If I labored in an office setting that might justify Rebecca Taylor prices, I’d hold it in a scorching minute.
Louise et Cie Kaitlee Ankle Strap Sandals (measurement 8) // These sandals are super snug, they usually have some really fascinating details. I really like the feel offered by the interlinked straps and the bold architectural block heel. Sadly I didn’t get a very good up-close shot of them, however you’ll be able to see extra of them on the Nordstrom website. I’m tempted to keep these. I can see them being very versatile in my closet this spring and summer time. They run TTS; I’m sporting the 8.
Billabong x Sincerely Jules Can’t We Large Leg Pants (measurement 29) // I don’t assume any rationalization is important as to why I’m returning these pants, ha! But every time I say that, someone asks why, so… they’re very skinny and see-through. That’s the primary purpose. I like the striped print in concept. I additionally didn’t love the quality.
Vince Camuto Karika Cage Sandals (measurement eight) // Now these I like, but I feel I’d choose them in a special colour — perhaps the black. They run barely giant; I’m sporting the eight, however I’d favor to measurement right down to a 7.5. Up to now, I’ve found that needed with this model.
I just checked, they usually’re out there in black in 7.5, so I’m going to change them. I’ll report back!
Hinge Print Broad Leg Crop Pants (measurement small) // So these are the closest I’ve come to finding broad legged crop pants I like, but after enjoying round with these on my Insta Story and polling the Insta-peeps, I’m more convinced than ever that they’re just not a flattering silhouette for my body sort. Does that mean I’ll by no means wear them? I by no means say never… but I feel these are going again for now.

LOFT Bell Cuff Button Entrance Blouse (measurement small) // I ordered a number of issues from Loft throughout one among their current promotions. This shirt is bee-youuu-teee-ful. I absolutely adore the colour, and it has such a reasonably neckline. The bell cuffs are an fascinating detail, and yeah. I can’t say sufficient good issues about it.
My only hesitation is the long sleeves. I mean, it’s good for the chilly spring climate we’ve been having, but hotter temperatures are proper across the corner, and then I gained’t feel like sporting this anymore till next yr, so I’m conflicted.
There are only a pair sizes left, and it’s 40% off in the present day!

Kut from the Kloth Donna Ankle Skinny Jeans (measurement 29) / These are pretty good for white denims! I’ve been making an attempt rather a lot these days, and for the worth, I feel these are an ideal discover. They’re thicker than most and have a cushty 9″ entrance rise. The inseam is 27″ which I’m noticing rising in popularity in “ankle denims” recently. It was that ankle denims had 28 or 29 inch inseams.
I like this 27 inch inseam for footwear with a better vamp — akin to these sneakers. When i put on my jeans with 28″ inseam, they hit the highest of the shoe, whereas these permit some ankle to point out, which is more flattering.
additionally sporting: LOFT Striped Tie Hem Button Down Tee (measurement small) with Veja Esplar sneakers (measurement 8)

LOFT Paisley Henley Combined Media Shell (measurement small) // This is another fairly floral shell from Loft that is lovely paired with white, gray, pink, or blue denims. (See it under with pink denims.) It’s lengthy so I did the front-tuck. It might additionally look good with a denim jacket or cardigan on prime, and it’s 40% off at the moment.
additionally sporting: Kut from the Kloth Donna Ankle Skinny Denims with comparable espadrilles
Lucky Model Ava Skinny Denims in Jazzy Pink (measurement 29) // These jeans went on mega sale and promptly bought out at Nordstrom, however I found them at Macy’s, which is I assume who Nordstrom was worth matching. For $41, they’re really a steal! They’re also at Zappo’s and Amazon, but not on sale.
These jeans are thicker than most and very flattering. They appear to run greater than different Fortunate Model jeans I’ve tried. I’m sporting the 29, and I might use the 28.
Eileen Fisher Lee Espadrille Flat (measurement 8.5) // I just lately picked these up when buying at Nordstrom, and they are so light-weight ad snug. They’re leather lined so nice quality, a bit splurgier than some, however I feel they’re well worth the worth if you will put on them quite a bit. You’ll see more of those in a submit this week.
also sporting: LOFT Paisley Henley Combined Media Shell
Ann Taylor Houndstooth Ponte Pocket Shift Gown (measurement 6) // And eventually, this gown got here from Ann Taylor yesterday so I tried it on real quick by the sunshine of the moon. Ha! It was getting dark out so I attempted to lighten these footage with my iPhone, they usually’re actually grainy.
I assumed I was going to love this gown, however it falls brief — or lengthy, actually, ha! It’s simply not that flattering — or too huge. I ordered the 6 and eight, and I threw this one on without wanting at the tags. I assumed this was the eight because of how roomy it was, but once I took it off and checked, it was certainly the 6. I imply, vainness sizing a lot???
I’ll order the 4, out of curiosity. Sometimes Ann Taylor makes a top quality garment and it should match higher, so I’m assuming it’s a sizing situation. However it’s also a shift, which tends to have much less construction by means of the waist, so perhaps it’s supposed to fit this manner? In that case, it’s a tough move for me.
