LOFT Chambray Tiered Pocket Shirtdress, size XXS regularLOFT Chambray Tiered Pocket Shirtdress, size XXS regular | Zara bag (old favorite) | The Drop Women’s Monika Flat H-Band Slide Sandal (review here) | Click here and here to view the clips from my try-on

I wore this dress today and I ordered this shirtdress in chambray as well as the plaid version but I preferred the softer fabric of the denim versus plaid. My usual size fit well. I don’t have any photos of the plaid version of the dress on me but the button cuffs were very tight on my 6″ wrists.

I had a dress obsession this summer and I was hoping I would like this striped pocket sweatshirt dress (I ordered size XXS regular) but I didn’t love the sleeves on me. The dress also lacked any shape and I didn’t like the pocket placement at the hips. I usually prefer flounce dresses or swingy dresses.

Cinzia Rocca Double Breasted Belted Trench Coat, size 2Cinzia Rocca Double Breasted Belted Trench Coat, size 2 | Celine Pico Belt Bag | LOFT Destructed High Rise Skinny Ankle Jeans in Vivid Light Indigo Wash, size 26/2P | Cole Haan Caddie Bow Loafer (review here) | Click here (belted) and here (worn open) to view the clips from my try-on

I love a good trench (click here to view the back) and I’ve been noticing Cinzia Rocca outerwear on both T.J. Maxx and Marshalls online but always in select quantities and sizes (the red color also sold out fast). I’m so glad I ordered this olive double breasted trench coat because the fabric and drape are so flattering and the minimalist details make it both timeless and classic. This trench coat makes me so excited for the cooler fall temperatures around the corner.

I thought that this trench was the same style/design but a different pattern so I ordered it as well but I didn’t look too closely and missed that it wasn’t double breasted. The fabric was thin and the fit wasn’t the same so I returned it.

LOFT Smocked V-Neck Muscle Tee, size XXSPLOFT Smocked V-Neck Muscle Tee, size XXSP | Click here to view the clip from my try-on

Last week I was excited to receive my LOFT order and a bunch of other packages but work was extremely busy. In a moment of panic I didn’t know when I would be able to find free time to review anything so I only kept this tee (I sized down one size and it’s still a relaxed fit) and the denim dress at the top of this post. If felt like clothing was hanging everywhere which was distracting so I sent everything I didn’t want to keep back via mail. Usually my husband would help me return the items in store but he was having a crazy work week as well.

Eileen Fisher Viscose Jersey Scoop Neck Dress, size PPEileen Fisher Viscose Jersey Scoop Neck Dress, size PP | Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I ordered this dress in size XSP according to the website and I received size PP when it arrived. It’s a looser fit through the body but I love the side slit, the modest scoop neck and the fabric isn’t too clingy unlike the Lou & Grey ribbed henley maxi dress that I returned. You can see a better view of the side slit here. I noticed that Everlane has a similar dress here.

This thin black t-shirt dress is another great option especially for lounging around at home. I was able to select 5 gifted items from Amazon this month and this t-shirt dress was one of the first times to arrive. The fit and drape was just as pictured.

I loved this swiss dot dress so much I also got it in the navy color. I took a screenshot above from this video clip but the video is clearer than the photo.

August has been a tough month and on top of everything Ralphie has been an extremely picky eater with the warmer weather. We’ve had to focus on making sure he eats small snacks/meals versus waiting until night which is when he prefers to eat since he can throw up bile if he has an empty stomach. Often giving him his favorite beef liver treats helps to jump start his appetite but lately he will not eat anything other than a few bites of his favorite treats until my husband comes home for meals (a convenience since he currently works very close to home).

Banana Republic Factory navy scalloped dress, size 4PBanana Republic Factory Scalloped Dress, size 4P | Click here to see the dress on me

I also ordered my favorite Banana Republic Factory navy scalloped dress (as seen here) in a few sizes up via Poshmark since the size I had (0P) from 2017 is now too snug all over. The dress has washed well over time and the navy fabric hasn’t faded either when I compare my old dress with the one I found on Poshmark. Size 0P measurements are 34″ chest and 27.5″ waist and size 4P measurements are 35″ chest and 29″ waist.

I recently found this dress at T.J. Maxx for $39.99 but it was missing the matching belt. The empire waist and statement sleeves are details that are a part of the regencycore trend. I found some photos of the dress featured on Few Moda‘s Instagram here and here.

I found this compact mirror at T.J. Maxx in store for $14.99. I love Hello Kitty and it’s well made and so cute.

If you’re looking for a ribbed knit lounge/pajama set I thought that this set was well made but I didn’t love the length of the top on me. Compared to the taller online model the half tuck looked silly on my shorter torso.

Thanks for stopping by!
