Casual Look: Halter Sweater

How classy is this halter top sweater?! It’s stunning in person. A little heavier knit, but still soft and stretchy. You guys know I more often than not purchase tops, and jeans even, that I can wear both in and out of workplace. However, this top caught my eye online and I knew it would be perfect for summer evenings out to dinner. And of course I had to pair with my new favorite block heel sandals (still on sale!). This halter sweater is also 40% off today!

Sizing: Sweater and jeans fits TTS.  I went with petite sizing in the sweater.

Flatlay: Sweater Tee + Denim Skirt

I love a good denim skirt, I love a good sweater tee, so why not pair the two together?! This marigold color is hot, hot, hot this season! I originally planned to style this sweater tee with the linen striped skirt from yesterday’s flatlay, but decided I wanted to pair it with these earrings instead and use a darker palette.  I’m thinking seersucker shorts or pants (check out these pants for work!) would look awesome also! And should trend right into fall. LOFT has a “New & Now” sale currently ~ 50% off skirts/dresses and 40% off almost everything else!

Sizing: Both sweater & denim skirt fit TTS. Marigold sizing does not have petite available, but order petite in other colors if that’s your normal size; it does fit a little longer. I didn’t mind the fit since I either front tuck into pants or tuck in completely to skirts most of the time.

Casual Look: Slub Tee

Just an everyday, casual look here for summer! This slub knit tee is very soft and comfortable. A classic Free People look with a raw edge and relaxed fit. 7 color options available.

Sizing: Shorts fit TTS. I always go down one size in Free People brand from my regular size in other brands.

Flatlay: Summer Fridays

Another cute tee alert! Love styling these graphic tees with midi skirts this summer! I’ve said this before, but about every shade of blue and yellow has drawn me in this season. Front tie-knots are a hot styling tip this year as well, and perfect for a more relaxed look at say a summer gathering or casual party. I initially had this flatlay styled with my white Vans sneakers, but I’ve worn them to work quite a bit lately and they were getting a little grundgy. I wiped them down with a wet paper towel not thinking they would have water spots all over them until they dry! So, 2nd pick were these woven mules – and honestly like both looks equally. 🙂

Right now J.Crew Factory has their “stock-up” sale and up to 40% off if you buy 4 items or more!

Sizing: Order your regular size in the graphic tee for a front-tuck or ‘wear left out’ look – order a size up for the perfect front tie-knot (I would also size up if you have a longer torso, these tees seem to run a bit shorter than previous seasons). Skirt fits TTS, but more fitted in the waist then I expected. If you are curvy on bottom like me (carry your weight in the hips an bum lol), I would maybe order a size up. I haven’t decided if I want to exchange or keep my regular size. I was surprised the length didn’t bother me at all either, even though it’s listed as “midi” – it’s longer then my other striped midi skirt from J.Crew Factory, but honestly I think it can look nice on all shapes and sizes for many people.

Casual Outfit: Summer Romper

If you’re looking for a lightweight, comfortable pool coverup or the easiest outfit you can throw on this summer, look no further! I found this easy peasy romper on Amazon and felt like I hit a jackpot! I wore it all day today and stayed so comfortable in the oven we call Florida (I’m still wearing it as I write this blog post at 9 pm 😝). There are 19 different color/style options available – not all are the same ‘type’, some have spaghetti straps (adjustable), some have buttons in the front and are sleeveless and not a tank top. I added the black/white striped version to my wish list!

Sizing: I ordered my regular size. Since I went with the tank top version, the straps are not adjustable. I usually require petite sizing and felt going up one size would make the top portion too large. I think I made the right choice. I could have went with a larger size on the bottom if I had a longer torso, but as long as the romper doesn’t shrink in the wash my regular size fits perfectly. It does say to hand wash on Amazon’s website and I would recommend an air-dry.

Flatlay: Summer Tweed Skirt

LOFT is having a great sale right now ~ all sale items are an extra 40% off! I picked up this skirt and a couple of summer sweaters at a great price! I love a structured tweed skirt for work. The material is nice all year long, kind of like merino wool, it helps to ward off the chill from outside or inside from the air conditioning.

I also picked up this sweater tee in marigold, striped dolman sweater, and this button striped sweater that is currently 50% off! If you are looking for a basic shell to go under cardigans, I highly recommend LOFT’s henley shell. You can always find them in basic colors and about every floral pattern you can think of! Also, if you’re a cardholder, today kicks off cardmembers appreciation month and 40% full-price items!

Ann Taylor also has 60% off sale items + an extra 15% for cardholders! That includes this white denim skirt and belted skirt I’ve featured on the blog recently ~ both great pieces for a summer work wardrobe!

Casual Look: Striped Cardigan

This cardigan is just too much fun! Currently 40% off and 11 color options available (many are solid colors in case the stripes are too much for you!). I honestly had a hard time picking between which striped version I liked more – I went with this one only because of the merlot/burgundy & marigold colors mixed in – I figured it will pair nicely this fall with my darker skirts and pants for work.

My jeans are also on great sale – love the fringe detail at the bottom! A trendy option, but worth it on sale. Both cardigan and denim fit TTS. I’m wearing petite sizing in the denim.

Flatlay: Aloha Tee + Midi Skirt

Channeling a little summer fun in this outfit! Thinking cookouts and outdoor parties, or maybe just wear this to work and I switch the sandals for flats and throw a cardigan over the tee? 😆 Either way, love a good graphic tee in the summer. I used to pair them all the time with pencil skirts when I dressed up more for work – now more-so with jeans and shorts, but still love having a little fun with the skirts I still have in my closet!

*size tip: Skirt and tee fit TTS. Go up one size in tee for the perfect tie-knot or half tuck look!

Work Outfit: Belted Skirt

I guess I’m on a chambray skirt kick on the blog today! I also wanted to share a more traditional look for work. I came across this belted skirt at Ann Taylor last week on major clearance – sizes are limited, but still quite a few petite sizes remain. I actually ordered my regular size initially, but ended up exchanging for petite which fit me a lot better. I paired it with this simple linen tee and matching necklace. Pretty much the options are endless with a skirt like this!

AT has a couple other belted skirt options in the same style, but different color options available here and here.

Flatlay: Chambray Skirt

Styling this cute eyelet tee again, today with another item in my closet I saw made a comeback! This chambray skirt has been another closet favorite for the last few years and LOFT brought it back this season to their outlet store! The version they have featured maybe looks a tad lighter shade? But otherwise identical. I’ve found I really like tying this tee in a knot more-so then a front tuck. I actually wore it to work today tied in front with skinny denim, white sneakers, and liked that look also!
