Dressing Room Diaries

Well a brand new week is upon us, so what better way to welcome it than with a new round of “Dressing Room Diaries” ?! Y’all seem to enjoy these as much as I do; I love being able to share how items fit ‘in real life’ without perfect photography or Lightroom (and with my after-wedding hair!) I’m providing fit and sizing information, but if you have any additional questions leave ’em below in the comments or email me 🙂

Gingham Drop Waist Dress ($69.50- get $50 off through Tuesday with code “FLASH”)- I shared this darling dress last week during my Summer Sundress round-up and I was excited to try it on in store this weekend, and let me tell ‘ya I’m glad I did! This dress runs quite large & long, I’m actually wearing a small petite (I’m normally a medium regular). For extra context, I’m 5’4 & a size 6/8 on bottom 🙂 Once I got the right size on, I absolutely adored this look! I feel ready for a summer picnic!

Denim Peplum Cami ($49.50) & Denim Riviera Shorts ($44.50) – Y’all know how much I love chambray so I was excited to see how this sweet little top would look on. It definitely runs big, so go one size down (I’m wearing a medium but needed a small that the store didn’t have). I’m also a huge fan of Loft’s Riviera shorts, they fit my curves really well, and this denim pair was the perfect neutral to add to my closet for summer. I’m wearing a size 8 and they run TTS.

Denim Peplum Cami ($49.50) & Geo Jacquard Shift Skirt (sale $54.99)- I know I always say that shift-style skirts don’t fit me well, but this one was SO cute (& on sale!) that I had to torture myself anyway… Well they only had a size 6, which was definitely too small for my hips, but if you lack curves it would work for you! If you are curvy, I think sizing up 1-2 sizes would definitely solve the problem!

Denim Peplum Cami ($49.50) & Striped Tweed Riviera Shorts (sale-$34.99 with extra 50% off through Tuesday)- These shorts look a little muted in my pictures, but the chartreuse stripes are nice and bright in real life 🙂 Again, these shorts run TTS (i’m wearing an 8) and this tweed material has even more stretch than the denim pair. These came home with me!

**Don’t forget that LOFT is running a FLASH sale of $50 off $100 with code “FLASH”**

Crown & Ivy Striped Ruffle Top & Elephant Scalloped Shorts ($32.99)- Whenever i’m in Lakeland I have to stop in to Belk since I don’t have one in St. Pete. I absolutely love their preppy line, Crown & Ivy, and always find some seriously cute pieces! First I tried on this striped ruffle top which I can’t find online (and now I’m kicking myself for not buying!) If you find it in store I’m wearing a Medium but it runs a bit big, so if you are between sizes then size down. Next, I went seriously gaga for these scalloped elephant short! Eek- aren’t they the cutest?? There should be no doubt that they wen’t home with me… 😉 I’m wearing an 8 and they run very TTS.

Elephant Tiered Top ($42.99) & Elephant Scalloped Shorts ($32.99)- As if the elephant pattern wasn’t cute enough in shorts, it also comes in this cute tiered tank! This top runs big too, so size down 1 size.  PS- I was kind of digging this as a matching set, but I don’t know if it’s too much?? #help 

Crown & Ivy Tassel Peasant Top ($42.99) & Elephant Scalloped Shorts ($32.99)- Finally, I found this bright and colorful peasant top and about melted over the exaggerated tassel detail! The colors are so vivid in real life & I love! This top also runs large, so size down unless you like it roomy.


Hope y’all enjoyed and found some goodies to pick up! Have an awesome start to your week!! XO
