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.

Casual: Striped Tie Knot Tee

I’ve had this striped tie-knot tee for years and while I sell quite a few of my clothes on Poshmark once the style is older or I’ve replaced with a newer option – this is one of those tops I can’t let go of! I just happened to come across a near identical version on Amazon Prime for $10-16 (depends on size/color) – and comes in 25 (I said 25!) color/print options! It has 4 out of 5 stars with almost 600 reviews – I’d say that’s pretty good for the price! I added the red/stripe option to my cart! Loving Amazon Prime finds lately! ❤️

Weekend #ootd

Just a cute & trendy ringer tee from Amazon Prime! Perfect for the weekend and casual days. And only $16! That’s the best part. 🙂 I went with my normal size (small). Reviews suggested it runs big, but my normal size fit perfectly.

Casual Outfit: Eyelet Top

Since moving to Florida a few years ago, I’ve taken a on a new appreciation for lightweight tops and jeans that don’t ‘stick’ when you put them on after showering – ha! The heat and humidity has finally started to cook up down south, so I mainly wear tanks and shorts at home, light weight tops and skirts at work, with the occasional chino or lightweight denim.

And when I say denim.. usually only white jeans! 😝 So I apologize if my blog becomes ‘white jeans, work skirt, white jeans, work skirt’ lol – I think I need to break out of my comfort zone apparently! That all said, I wanted to show you a new favorite lightweight top!  This beautiful eyelet top is only $29, comes in 12 color options! 12! I’m wearing the pink carnation color.

Nordstrom recommends going down one size (I’m wearing an XS) and I think it has the perfect fit. It’s swingy enough you can easily do a half-tuck like shown, tuck in to a tie-waist skirt or shorts, or even tie knot over jeans shorts.
