One of the best things about online shopping is you don’t have to go out and try on clothes. One of the worst things about online shopping is you don’t have to go out and try on clothes. Obviously there are both good and bad things about both methods. I just seem to find myself spending less time at the mall in the dressing room and more time in my house trying on things I’ve ordered. Well this week I had some of those things I ordered that needed to be returned so I grabbed up a few things to try on and share with you.
I wasn’t too sure about this one when I picked it up, but thought I’d give it a try. You would definitely want to wear a cami under it (like I happen to have on) because it’s thin. It’s cute, and think if I was little taller I’d like it better. There are also several solids available that were cute.
This one I’ve actually been eyeing on line and wanting to try on. I tried it on it black and in an orangey-red. They are both super soft and I love the ruffle detail at the sleeve. They have a more generous cut for a tee so it hangs better at the bottom, but again I think it would look better if my torso was a little longer. I was kinda of sad when I put it on since was a little long, but I might give it a try in a petite and see how that works. Fingers crossed because this shirt is seriously made out of some dreamy fabric.
I thought the eyelet detail at the waist was so cute and then loved how it was done on the back. Always a sucker for a cute detail. I really did like this top and loved the way it hung and thought it would be so comfortable and cool for the summer. I have on a small, but I think an extra small might fit better.
I LOVED the double ruffle on the sleeves on this top and the peplum. Both huge trends for spring. The sides of the peplum have a handkerchief effect and add interest to the hem line. I think this shirt will also translate to fall as well, making it a double winner and a lot bang for your buck. I love an item that can be transitional instead of season specific.
See, just look at those darling sleeves.
The more I look at this one, the more I like it but I tried it on in a black print as well that I think I like even better.
same top in a different print / white jeans
The black looks great with white jeans, which on a side note I’m still on the hunt for some that are a little more forgiving for those of us with not so stellar legs. These NYDJ are the closest I’ve found, but I’m still not sold. The NYDJ are really nice and thick so they aren’t as see through as a lot of the white jeans that are out there.
This top would also look great with the same jeans in guava color.
And I don’t know if I just didn’t see it or what but the blouse comes in a really pretty floral. I need something floral so I can grab that trend and this might be the answer.
This was one of my favorites from my little excursion. It’s oh so soft and I do love soft fabrics. I also loved the 3/4 sleeves. Perfect for spring and summer and layering in the winter. This shirt is nice and long in the back and covers your bum so I’d say hooray to that. It’s available in 5 other colors along with the black, but you know how I love my black clothes. This shirt like most Bobeau tops runs a little large so I sized down to an x-small.
So there you have it. I know it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts so I hope you liked seeing some of the styles out there on a real person. For reference, I’m almost 5’3″ tall. I’m the shorty in our family.
Now I’m off to finish packing, get a quick workout in, pack some fruit to eat on the plane and head to the airport.
Happy Thursday and happy shopping friends!

Love the ruffled tee and puplum top. I don't order many things online simply because I don't like doing returns. I'm an "in store try on" girl!
Thanks Laura! I used to NEVER but online and I HATE returns too, I've always got something that needs returned?

I want those guava jeans! I need Target to make some in my price point! Have fun with the kids!
Thanks Allie! I think Old Navy has chinos that color??
I love subtle details on basic pieces. The tie front is something I would find for myself.
Me too Nicole! I really like the tie front too. Have a great weekend!

I tend to do more online shopping than going to the mall. Love all of the ruffles and peplum!
