Gap Girlfriend Jean

I am a Gap jean girl through and through. Without a doubt, they fit me the best. I’m on the shorter side (5’3″) and am curvy in the waist and hips. My go-to size is a size 4 or 27. Depending on the silhouette, I wear regular or ankle length. Besides the fit, what I love most about Gap jeans is that the washes and style details are always on trend.

They are also high quality jeans that don’t break the bank! Do I love the high end labels with the soft fabrics and perfect washes?! Absolutely! But as a mom of two little ones, I don’t have a lot of extra $ to spend on myself. I still want to look cute though and wear the latest styles. So Gap prices allow me to buy a new style or two each season, without all the mom guilt!

Also, I’m lucky to work in an environment that is casual. And on most days you will find me in jeans and a top. My go-to style is the Skinny, ankle length. I probably have 5 or 6 different pairs of that style in all different washes. But when I’m not in the mood to wear skinny denim, or if I’m going for another look, my other go-to is the Girlfriend jean.

The Girlfriend jean is a more relaxed fit. It comes in a mid-rise that sits more at your hips than at the high point of your waist. It has an easy fit through the hips, thighs, and legs. Definitely not as tight as the skinny! I find the fit to be a perfect combination of relaxed but not sloppy. I love to wear my Girlfriend jeans with tees, blouses, sweaters….really any type of top. Tops look great tucked in or out. The jeans also look great with so many shoe options: sandals, flip flops, sneakers, booties….so versatile!

Here is the latest pair I picked up (shown in photo). They are a medium wash with a little bit of destruction, but not too much, so I can still wear them to work 🙂 Currently on sale AND another 50% off! That comes to less than $22! Crazy! Shop here (affiliate links)

Perfect T-Shirt Dress

A t-shirt dress is a summer staple! I found a new favorite this summer from Loft’s Lou and Grey line.

So many great things to rave about this dress!

First, I love the lightweight cotton slub fabric. I don’t always want to be wearing a dress in a poly blend in the summer heat. Cotton is perfect to keep you cool and look cool in the heat.

Second, the fit is perfect for my body type. Often the t-shirt dresses I find are very tight on my hips and are too short. This style is roomy but not sloppy. It hits just above my knee providing enough coverage so I’m not self-conscious all day. I would size up if in between sizes. I’m wearing a small and it fits perfectly. I could have gotten away with an XS but since it’s cotton, I didn’t want to risk it shrinking a little in the wash and then be too tight or short.

Third, it’s so versatile. I’ve worn it to work and taken it on vacation to the beach and lake. Bonus- it’s super easy to pack!

I love all the colors offered, but I fell in love with this yellow. Such a bright and beautiful color for Summer! Now the yellow is only $18!! Many other great colors to choose from which are also on sale. (affiliate links)

Aerie Real Soft V-Neck T-Shirt

When every retailer has their own take on the basic tee, it’s hard to find the one that is perfect for you. The perfect tee needs to have a great fit, made in a quality fabric that will hold up with lots of wearing and washes, and be a good price so you can stock up in lots of colors.

This season, I found the real soft v-neck tee from Aerie that I am loving for all of these reasons. I wanted a tee that had a slightly looser fit. I wanted the fit to be flattering and cute, but loose enough that I felt comfortable it in all day and didn’t feel like I had to keep adjusting it. It’s the perfect blend of being roomy, while not looking sloppy! (Bonus, with the extra room, you can also knot this style for another cute look).

The fabric is like they say- super soft! It’s lightweight but not too sheer. The real soft v-neck tee is sold out in my pink, but still comes in 5 perfect colors. Aerie also introduced a similar style called the distressed v-neck boyfriend tee. The fabric and fit look similar to my tee, and it comes in all different colors- shades of pinks, plum, green called royal palm, and a grey.

Both tees are 30% off! And the real soft tee is less than $14! Time to stock up on more colors! (affiliate links)

Loft 50% off Summer Favorites

A few weeks ago, I stopped by my local loft for a try-on session and found some amazing styles of dresses and even a jumpsuit that I loved!

Over the years, I have relied on Loft for great quality dresses. Casual, dress-up, short, long, they have them all!

This season’s styles are no exception to offering great prints, colors and details that are right on trend. They also come in many different sizing options in regular, petite and plus sizes.

Right now, they are having a 50% off Summer Favorites sale and some of my favorite dresses that I tried on are included.

Below are my favorites, including the jumpsuit. All styles are perfect for the summer. We still have a lot of warm weather to enjoy and now we can look great while spending less!

All styles fit tts. I am wearing a size Small or size 4 in all styles. The first picture, the stripe button down, was the only style I maybe could have sized down 1 size in (due to me being a little smaller in the bust area 🙂 )

There are also some other great deals included in this sale (tops, bottoms, accessories etc) so check out all the items here (affiliate links)
