Casual Outfit: Colorblock tee

Just popping in to share my #ootd and this awesome colorblock tee from Amazon! Only $16, eight color options, and free one-day shipping with your Prime membership! It’s a little longer in length, so perfect for a front tuck with shorts and even better with skinny jeans!

Sizing: Tee fits TTS.

I’m wearing my regular ‘jean size’ from AE in the shorts, but I feel like they are a tad small. I actually listed them on Poshmark today and re-ordered a similar pair in a size up. They fit fine in the waist, but I don’t like how tight they are on my thighs. (For reference: I usually wear a 28/6 in most denim brands, I wear an 8S in AE Ne(x)t level stretch jeggings, and sized up to a 10 in my new pair of shorts… will keep you posted on fit!). My exact shorts are sold out online ~ I linked the similar, darker wash pair below that I just ordered.

Casual Outfit: Yellow Flats

Alright, not gonna lie. It was hard to get dressed yesterday. I kind of just threw this sweater and jeans on. Picked out the earrings. Jazzed up the sweater a bit with a long necklace. And then decided it was a good day to spice up my outfit with these yellow flats!  And ya know what? The shoes saved the day ~ they always do! I was always told a great pair of shoes makes the outfit, even if they are the $20 kind! Disclaimer: These flats are from Old Navy. Not quite a Sam Edelman or Tory Burch. BUT. I wore them comfortably for an 8 hour shift on my feet yesterday and my feet are fine today. I probably wouldn’t choose them on a 13 hour day or in season where I’m running from place to place, but if you are not a retail pharmacist and don’t work on your feet for an ungodly amount of time, they are worth the $20 (or actually less on sale lol!).

Sweater and jeans are also on sale for the 4th!

Sizing: Shoes, sweater, and jeans all fit TTS.

Casual Outfit: Striped Dolman Sweater

For today’s #ootd I wore this striped dolman sweater ~ included in the LOFT sale and already 50% off + an extra 40% off! (using code: VACAY). It’s a stretchy, soft knit material and surprisingly cool in the heat and keeps you comfortable in the air conditioning (I think I sound like a broken record, but I love sweaters in the summer ~ probably more so than in a Florida winter! 😆 My sandals are also 30% off!

Sizing: Sweater and sandals fit TTS.

Casual Outfit: Pintuck Tank

Sharing my #ootd from a couple days ago! Love this pretty teal blue color for summer. It pairs perfectly with fuchsia or magenta. I could see this same top and earrings paired with a light colored denim and cognac sandals as well. My tank top is on clearance and only $20 ~ and also comes in a pretty lavender color. I tied it on the side since it’s a little long on me with shorts, but you could easily wear it untucked with jeans, bermuda shorts, or front tucked.

Sizing: I sometimes size down one in the Caslon brand, but went with my regular size (Nordstrom’s website lists it as fitting TTS). I was very happy with the fit. My shorts fit TTS.

Casual Outfit: Flatlay IRL / Embroidered Tee

Happy almost weekend again friends! Today I wanted to bring a flatlay to life in today’s post! This embroidered tee is just adorable. Maybe at 37 (I said it… I admitted it… I had a birthday recently and now that much closer to 40! I feel like I’ve crossed into another generation of life LOL), I shouldn’t want to wear anything adorable, but I think it’s also that generation of life we start to ‘wear whatever we want’. 😆 Well, regardless I love this tee! And these shorts. And they pair really well together.

Sizing: Both tee and shorts fit TTS.

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.

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.

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.

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.
