Show and Tell Tuesday

Show and Tell Tuesday is a year long link party (just like the graphic shows…haha) with a different topic each time.


The topic this time is “Your Personal Style” and this couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.

I’ve been thinking about a new series I’m going to call “Try it on Tuesday” (thanks for the name Katie♥) where I show you things I’ve tried on when out shopping so you can see how they look on a “real” person. It’s crazy how things look so much better or worse on an actual person rather than just on the hanger or a super skinny model.

I’m still working on the whole selfie thing and really stepping out of my comfort zone posting these, but I really like seeing them when other bloggers do them so I hope you feel the same.

Seeing things I’ve tried on should give you a pretty good idea of my personal style. I consider myself to be classic with a trendy twist. I have a pretty casual style since I don’t work outside of our home but even when just staying at home and/or running errands I still like to try and look cute. I’m really aware of how comfortable something is as well as how it looks on. I tend to wear a lot of neutrals. Black, gray, and white are my go to’s, and I find myself being drawn to olive green and blush here of late. I love hot pink and coral and throw those in frequently. This doesn’t mean I won’t wear anything else, these just seem to be in my wheel house.

I’m currently looking for a new dress to wear to graduation or maybe baccalaureate.

I tried this one on in Gap the other day and thought it was super cute, but ordered it in a petite because it’s to long in the back above the waist and pooches (that’s a word, right?) out due to me being compact. Bonus…it has pockets♥


Update: the petite came in over the weekend and while it fit much better through the top it was just too short for me to be comfortable.

While I was in there, I saw this cute shirt and grabbed it too. Love the color and it has a darling pleated back like the tee I recently purchased at Loft. Seems these days I’m really drawn to flowy tops that are comfortable, but still cute. If coral isn’t your color it comes in 5 other options.

Coral top

I probably wear way too much black, but I love it. It’s a blank canvas and you can change it up with lots of different accessories. This one is considered mixed media. The back is a knit and the front is more of a silky(ish) material. I KNOW…you love my technical terms. Bonus, it’s on sale for $20 and comes in other colors.



Black sleeveless top / Printed option

I’ve said before I’m not really a typical tee girl and thought this might be a good substitute. Like most white shirts you need a cami under it. If someone could perfect the whole white shirt – see thru issue, they’d be RICH!!!! This also comes in other colors and is 40% off.

Smocked Yoke Top

This is the Lou & Grey tee that I brought home with me. It’s one of my favorite shirts. I have several Lou & Grey items and they are all so soft and comfy. I’m trying on a small in this picture but ended up buying the x-small. It comes in different colors and I can’t promise I won’t be buying at least one more.


Lou & Grey Shirttail Tee

I love the lace detail on the top of this shirt and I love it even more because it’s on sale. The lace  dresses up a plain tee and is very on trend again this spring. As I’ve mentioned before I’m just not a tee kinda girl. I think it’s partly because I’m short waisted and they just don’t fit well through the body. I even tried this on in a petite, but still wasn’t convinced I’d wear it so I ended up returning it. If you’re a tall(er) girl, please buy this and think of me when you wear it.

Lace Yoke Tee / Striped option

Well, keepin’ it real here. This is a terrible picture, but a cute shirt.

Caslon Plaid Popover

I showed you this top a while back, but wanted to give you a reminder that it’s cute, comfy and now it’s on sale.

Bobeau Striped 3/4 Sleeve Top

I seem to wear a cami almost every day and these cami’s from Gap Factory Store have been my favorite for years. They come in quite a few colors and typically are on sale so I always stock up.

My favorite cami

I love the ruffle trim on the sleeve of this blouse. It takes it from cute to darling in a split second.

Deco Ruffle Trim Henley

It comes in several different prints here, here, here and here.

Solid colors here, here and here.


I was really surprised how much I liked this dress on and it could be worn for work or casual wear. The sleeves can be rolled up and it has a tab to hold them in place or you can leave them long also making this a great dress for seasonal transition.

Diamond Tie Waist Dress

So there you have it. My personal style…in a dressing room. HA!

What do you consider to be your personal style?

Do you like seeing clothes on someone else to help you decide if you might want to try it on yourself?

Happy Tuesday friends!

      Great! Hope you like them! If y'all go to Williamsburg, go in the outlet. They should have them and they are seriously usually on super sale. 😉

      Thanks Tammy! I didn't purchase it, but I'm thinking I might just have to 😉
