I’ve been sitting on these photos for a few weeks now – oops! Sometimes I do that…and then before I know it, it’s been like 3 weeks and the dress is already sold out! eeekers!
Good news is that this dress is not quiet sold out, but the sizing is limited. sorry people. But on another note, there’s one that is SUPER SUPER similar that I posted decades ago (see post here or just shop the dress here) that is still available AND on sale! yahoo!! And by on sale, I mean it’s like $52. No joke.
that’s all i got today. ha. I feel like I must have done something incredibly rude to my body because I tried to recover yesterday (and ended up sleeping like 14 hours last night) and I’m STILL feeling ridiculously exhausted and out of it. Excuse me while I try and get back on my feet over here.
I mean…do I even need to comment on the cute-ness of this dress? And it’s $52. Yeah. I know, right? Isn’t it insanely adorable?! #ObsessionAtFirstSight
and I love that it’s a fit-and-flare because I feel like that’s one of the most flattering cuts. It also comes in a pretty yellow color (which I may or may not have in my backseat trying to figure out if I want to keep it or not…)
Pale pink and sky blue – what a color combo! I’m loving it and actually just any pastels paired together in general.
This dress though. I love the way it fits – it’s perfect. It kind of looks like a romper, but it’s not (which I like because I think dresses are more flattering!) It’s by Topshop, so it’s UK sizing (I’m wearing size US2) – I do feel like it would be too short on someone taller than like…five seven? Or maybe I’m wrong. Thoughts?
And I’m not sure how I feel about this lip color (YSL No. 22) – I feel like it maybe makes my teeth look yellow? ha! Or idk, maybe you have to have different skin tone to wear it? What do you think? Have you tried this color before? The lady at the makeup counter told me it was a big color for this summer…but I’m still iffy about it! Please weigh in…
Oh and I don’t really want to tell you this, but I feel like I should (because maybe it will help you! hehe). The reason why I look somewhat/quasi tan here is because I used my all time favorite self-tanner: St. Tropez. There’s actually a value set on sale right now as part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Have you tried it? I LOVE it! The only issue (I guess, when compared to other self-tanning solutions) is that it doesn’t really last that long. But I think it lasts long enough; and plus it doesn’t really smell as bad as the others, so I don’t mind applying it once or twice a week if I have something going on. Also, they make stuff specially for the face, but I just use the mousse all over my body and face and it works fine for me.
Hi friends! I absolutely love love love this top. And yeah, I know…I say that a lot. But this one really is a good one (and I think the price makes it even better).
But these shorts – they’re probably the only shorts that I actually feel quasi-confident; something about the way they’re cut makes them wearable and somehow shave off about 5 pounds (cha ching!).
No but really, I have them in denim too and love them. They’re sold out most of the time and are only in stock for a few weeks before selling out again (hot commodity). But the good news is, I just checked #AllTheWebsites one last time and found they were just restocked at shopbop (they run true to size)! yahoo!
I may or may not have waited until the last minute to put this post together. Ooops. But oh well, it happens. Sometimes I’m a total star-blogger when it comes to my ‘editorial calendar’ and what’s up next (keyword: sometimes). But lately, I have been flying by the seat of my pants. And so it’s 8 ish AM for the third time this week and I don’t have a post up (I guess I’ve just been having too much fun – insert sassy emoji girl here…ha)
But hey, there’s always next week, right?
So today is a BIG day for the internet world because the huge-crazy-huge Nordstrom Anniversary sale starts today – but only for card members. Do you have a Nordstrom card? If so, then you’re probably already well aware of this thing. But if you don’t, it might be worth getting so you can shop this sale before the general public does. Anyway, I’ll be working all day on putting together some product round ups of my favorite picks (you an sign up to get my posts in your inbox at 10 AM each morning so you don’t miss all my picks!)
But first, coffee!
Oh, and about this maxi dress…I think it goes without saying that this is a total winner – for all the same reasons that I always preach (aka comfy, easy, well-priced and lots of wearability). In other words, it’s a no-brainer right?! Do you have a good black maxi in your closet? But I think this one is better because of the synched waist and the hi-low hem…just sayin’
Sometimes I feel like my blog should be called the oversized-tee-and-jeans-blog. I know I (well at least I try to) post a variety of different outfits ranging from daytime casual to nighttime cocktail, but I definitely gravitate towards my everyday go-to: a laid back tee and jeans.
It doesn’t matter if it’s freezing or scorching outside, I usually always feel like wearing something comfy and larger-ish on top with skinnies (aside from an occasional craving to wear a loose dress to deal with summer heat).
I love the simple cut of this coral sleeveless dress and the fact that it’s sleeveless, but I think I love the color of it the most. It’s such a perfect shade of coral for summer and perfectly matches that new lipstick shade I’ve been talking about (No. 52)!
Feeling super preppy over here in my hot pink and scallops, but then again I’m a big supporter of (mostly) all things prepster.
But let’s talk about this skirt y’all, I LOVE it and am so tempted (!) to buy it in the black. It’s rare that I find a skirt that I love a lot, but this one is great. The only thing is that it runs a little small; I’m wearing a US size 2 but I think it’s too tight (I would go up to US size 4 if I were to buy again…but I ordered online and was too lazy to exchange…ha)
I LOVE love love this dress. I love the colors and the stripes, but I REALLY love the cut and fit of it. I feel like it’s just a super flattering shape – and love the sleeves too (it adds a special little touch of conservatism to the look). And it’s perfect for any 4th festivities (off the water/pool of course) that you might have coming up!
I just got this lipstick color and am SO OBSESSED. It’s sold out everywhere in stores (I checked Neimans, Nordstrom AND Sephora and ended up having to order online). So unless you’re lucky enough to catch it when they’ve got a fresh shipment, you should just order it. Apparently, this color (No. 52) is the top selling color this summer! So yeah, it’s a good one and definitely worth a shot!
I love this dress so much I might have to get in both colors! I don’t know what it is, but it just fits SO well and has just the right amount of ‘flounce’ – if you know what I mean?! I love the detailing in the hem and how it’s a little asymmetrical too!
There are adjustable straps for if you’re taller or shorter (pretty sure I have them on the tightest option possible!) and it’s lined so you don’t need to worry about it being see-through either. All in all, it’s a GREAT dress :) I’m wearing size XS for reference.
I’m always game for an easy tunic/shirt dress. And this one is pretty over-sized, which means lots of airflow to keep the summer sweat layer to a minimum (ha!). No but really, it’s comfy and is just the right kind of baggy/loose if you know what I mean?!
Not gonna lie, my hair was like 3 days old when I took these photos. On one hand, I’m like…wow you kind of can’t tell! And then on the other hand, I’m like OMG that’s kind of foul. Right? TMI? eeek. But yeah, I’m going to share my dry shampoo secrets since it’s basically a part of this outfit…
This top kind of rocks my socks y’all. I mean, it’s cute for a number of reasons but mostly it’s a GREAT color, great price, and easy to wear. What else is there anyway? It’s super cute with skinny jeans too (#duh) but I should give you a heads up that it’s just a tad short-ish (so if you like longer shirts, I maybe wouldn’t advise this one…) But all in all, it’s pretty ‘clutch’/fetch/awesome.
