Peplum Tee – A New Favorite Basic

Peplum Tee

Hi there, Liz here!

I’ve been on the search for some new basic tops. You know, those perfect tees or tanks that are in a constant rotation within your wardrobe. The first item you grab when you just want to feel good and know you will look cute at the same time.

Well I found this peplum style that might be my new favorite. I love how it is a basic tee, but with a feminine twist!

The fabric is a soft, lightweight cotton. Silhouette is a classic crewneck that can be outfitted in many ways. And the peplum detail creates a flattering shape.

I liked the top so much, I ordered 3 colors! The fit runs large, so I sized down to an XS when I’m normally a S. There is also a long sleeve v-neck version in a slub cotton fabric that I added to my cart.

I was debating on which color I should return. But at 40% off, I may just keep all 3!

Birthday Dinner #OOTD

38….here I come!

Such a great day celebrating my birthday.

Enjoyed ice cream cake with the kiddos before dinner! (Doesnt everyone do dessert then dinner?!)

Then my husband took me out to eat. We don’t eat out much, especially during the week.But since it was a special occasion, I wanted to dress in some of my favorite pieces.

This jcrew silk wrap top is a tried and true staple in my closet. So flattering and great quality. Fits tts, I am wearing a size 4.

The leopard pumps are a new purchase and I’ve already gotten so much use out of them. Perfect heel height and very comfortable. Fit tts, I am wearing a size 8.

I’m a gap jeans girl. I’ve started to branch out lately, but I always come back to their skinny and jeggings styles. They fit my body type perfectly, maintain their shape, and come in so many washes and styles. These jeggings are my favorite for their fit and classic wash. Fit tts, I am wearing a size 27.

For fun, I wore these tassle earrings that added a little extra fun to the look. My pair are sold out, but I found a great alternative on Amazon for less than $10. Click the link above!

I felt great in all of these favorite items on my special day!

Romper #OOTD

I know I’m late to the romper party. I’ve been nervous to try the trend thinking it would look silly on me, or maybe I wasn’t trendy enough to pull it off.

But I’ve taken the plunge and tried this adorable knot front style from American Eagle.

I know fit is extremely important for the romper trend. When I was contemplating buying this style, I wasn’t sure on sizing. I bought a small and it was tts. I usually wear a size xs or s in tops, and a size 4 or 27 in bottoms. I was worried it would be too short and tight, but I think the fit is great!

I also loved the soft washed fabric. It drapes well but isn’t too clingy. I definitely would suggest a strapless bra. I’m thinking trying it with a cute bandeau because a little would peek through by the knot.

Overall, I’m so pleased with this style. I’m excited to wear it as soon as it’s warm enough! Here I outfitted it with a soft wash boyfriend fit denim shirt and snake print sandals. Happy romper shopping!

Navy and White- A Classic Combo

I have a navy problem.

I’ve been assessing what’s in my closet to see what I have and what I will need when the weather finally warms up. And when I started to look at all the navy tees, sweaters, blouses….I realized I may have a problem!

But I think it’s a good problem because… I LOVE NAVY. It is probably my favorite neutral, except for maybe grey. Or maybe they’re tied. But either way, I love navy because it provides such flexibility in my wardrobe which is so important to me. When you have kiddos to constantly shop for, a mama’s wardrobe budget shrinks very fast. Investing in navy pieces allows my wardrobe to get a lot of use and I think it’s because of two specific reasons:

  1. Navy literally goes with any color. ANY color. I even have paired it with black.
  2. Navy can be worn in any season. My favorite pieces in my wardrobe are ones that I can wear at least half the year. Living in the Northeast, you can’t get away with wearing some items all 12 months. But many I can wear at least 3 out of the 4 seasons, which make them worth investing in!

As we get ready to rotate our wardrobes for Spring and Summer, my favorite combo that I consistently go to is navy and white. The pics below feature two new navy tops and two denim bottoms that I recently picked up from J.Crew. All 4 pieces will be perfect for wear now/wear later outfits!

The eyelet sweatshirt will be great to wear sooner than later, but will also transition well to wearing with shorts and skirts. The eyelet knit top can be layered now with a jacket or open weave cardigan and will look great on it’s own in warmer months. And you can’t go wrong pairing white denim skinny jeans or shorts with navy, or any color! Pair the outfits with neutral or metallic sandals, throw on some classic or fun jewelry and you are ready!

Saturday OOTD

It may have snowed the last two days, but I am ready for Spring! I channeled warmer weather in my outfit of the day to be out and about doing errands and then to see a basketball game.

Knot Front Tank
Another great Target find. This tank is long enough that it give me the coverage in the back that I like. But it’s not too tight on my hips and has a cute knot detail which is really popular in active top styling right now. The tank is lightweight so I needed to have a heavier cover-up on top (see below). But I like that I’ll get a lot of use out of it as we move to summer months since it won’t be too heavy. TTS I bought a small and usually wear a small in tops.
High-Rise Elevate Mesh-Trim 7/8-Length Leggings for Women
High-Rise 7/8 Length Floral Legging
I’ve been really impressed with the active collections at Old Navy. The styling and colors are on trend, and the quality is very good for the price. They hold up very well after many workouts and washes. This floral print adds a more interest into my active wardrobe without being too loud. I like the side mesh panels as well that will help keep me cooler as the weather warms up. I would size up one size in this item. I usually wear a small but purchased a medium for extra comfort and less transparency in the fabric.

Chunky Stitch Cardigan

Since technically it is still Winter, I couldn’t survive the day without a heavier cover-up on top of the lighter tank and leggings. So I reached for a key item in my closet that gets so many different uses. This chunky stitch cardigan is probably one of the most versatile items to have. I wear with jeans and boots over tees and tanks. But it also looks great as a topper over activewear as I did today. It’s soft and comfortable to go with the rest of the outfit! Sizing is TTS. I bought a small which is a nice loose, oversize fit without being too big.

New Balance Running Shoes
Ok, I’ll be honest. I’m not using these for running, but they have been great for daily wear and walking around. They are lightweight and footbead is super supportive and comfortable. They are also on sale for over 30% off with full size runs still available! Sizing is TTS.
