Trying On All The Things

Happy Monday peeps! Did y’all have a fun weekend? We had a nice cold relaxing one. Yes, you read that right. It was windy on Saturday and actually chilly on Sunday. We had to turn the heat on. It was 64 degrees in the house. Say WHAAAT??? Can someone please tell summer to come back?!

Saturday while we were out and about I figured when at the mall, try stuff on. 

First stop, Nordstrom.

I spotted these sweatshirts with peplum bottoms and thought they were so cute. They run really big though and so I don’t think they look very good on me. I was wearing an x-small. Having said that I do really love the gingham and the stripes. I looked high and low and for the life of me can’t find them on the website yet. I think sometimes they get things in the store before they show up online.

striped top / olive option

I keep seeing this adorable little striped top on bloggers and found one to try on. It’s darling. There’s a solid white as well as a solid green option and it has a super cute bow detail at the back of the neck. It’s selling out quickly so if you want it you’d better grab one. 

off the shoulder top 

If you are still in the market for your first off the shoulder top to add to your closet, or maybe another one to add to your collection this little gauzy darling would be a great choice. As you can see, Katie has never been more excited to be in a fitting room.

ruffle sleeve top 

This striped top is really stretchy and I love the little ruffle sleeve. I can’t think of anything you probably couldn’t wear this one with. Jeans, shorts, crops, or a skirt would all look adorable paired with this allowing it to be one of the most versatile pieces in your closet and great to pack for vacation.

 one shoulder top

Not sure your ready for an off the shoulder top or worried about it staying up? Maybe a one shoulder top is the answer. The ruffles and gingham are so adorable on this one and it comes in 4 other colors. This is another one of those pieces that will go with pretty much everything. Denim, white jeans, jean shorts, all kinds of colored shorts or a cute skirt. 

  stretch knit top

This top is a really reasonable price at less than $40 and comes in 10 colors. Something for everyone.

 embroidered mixed media top

This one won my heart on the rack, but when I put it on I fell even harder for it. Oh my cuteness. I loved it and I can’t think of any short or pant option it wouldn’t look absolutely adorable with.

 ruffled tee

When I saw this one hanging there I instantly knew it would be too cute on and I was so right. I’m always on the hunt for cute tee’s since I don’t really like to wear plain tees. This one is oh so soft and has the cutest ruffle on the front that continues to the back. You look just as cute from behind as you do coming.

embroidered purse 

Ms. Thang is on the hunt for a cute embroidered purse and is in love with this little cutie.

 tassel necklace

I am always on the hunt for new, fun accessories and especially necklaces. This tassel necklace caught my eye when Katie was looking at the embroidered purse and I had to give it a quick try. Cute, don’t you think?

Next stop was the Loft.

 Lou & Grey top

Y’all know that I have frequently declared my love for the Lou & Grey line at Loft. This darling little top is just that. Darling. It goes perfectly with the pants I happen to have on that I purchased at Loft a few weeks ago. Let me just say that these pants are super comfortable. You might think about sizing down in them because they do stretch out quite a bit.

 off the shoulder top

Another sweet gingham off the shoulder top with a cute little tie detail on the arm.

 tiered bell sleeve top

Poor Kent, we went to the mall to return TWO things and he ended up having to find some place to sit while I tried all the things on. I hadn’t really intended for the day to go this way, but sometimes you just gotta’ roll with it. This tiered top is really, really cute. It’s pretty sheer so you’ll need a cami under it, but it’s light enough that even with the long sleeve it could be worn on a pretty warm day or would be perfect for restaurants and shopping. 

Did you see something that tempted you? Like some of the things I picked? So what do you think…Do you like posts like this where I try things on? Y’all need to let me know what you like and don’t like. I blog not only for me, but for you too and want to know what you’d like to see more of.

If you’re a blogger, on Thursday I’ll be co-hosting Ladies Who Link with A Gal Named Al, Mommy In A Nutshell, Pink Lady and Moms’ Coffee Date. This month we’re talking about Summer plans, recipes and activities. We’d love for you to join us and share about all your summer shenanigans.

Hope your week gets off to a great start.

    Oh my goodness Lisa, please tell me you left with some of these in tow, yes? You look adorable in everything. And that fabulous necklace from AC and your coral colored pants, leopard sandals all looked great with EVERYTHING! The tassel necklace was super cute and I hope Katie got the purse, I loved it too. And seeing her enthusiasm cracks me up, LOVE! What a fun shopping trip, you better have at least gotten the one shoulder gingham – gorgeous!!!!

      You are way too sweet. This was what I call a successful shopping day for my husband. I went home empty handed. I am thinking about ordering a couple of things though. I loved the gingham one shoulder top, but as with every single one shoulder thing I've tried on, it was too big (that was an x-small) They are made for people with boobs…LOL Everyone is picking up on Katie's excitement to watch me try on. Sometimes I really wonder if she has any of my DNA…she hates to shop? Hope your week has started off on the right foot my pretty friend! XO

    LOL- in the voice of Chandler Bing, "Could Katie BE any more interested!?" Love the olive shirt with pink pants combo- so fun and unexpected. Do you guys have a TJ Maxx in town? I find the best purses there and sometimes at Marshalls too- lots of on-trend bags.

    • June 13, 2017 / 2:27 pm

      Love me some Chandler Bing. HAHAHA!!! Yes, she was TOTALLY into everything I was trying on. NOT! We do have TJ Maxx and I used to be in there all.the.time. That used to be pretty much the only place I bought purses. (now we have a Kate Spade outlet that has really good sales, so the last few I've bought there.) We'll have to swing in and see if they have any cute little bags like that. Thanks Allie! Hope your week is off to a great start!
