J.Crew Factory Striped Puff-Sleeve Tee, size XS | Similar white skinny ankle jeans here and here | Ann Taylor Gretel Sandals (old favorites, reviewed here) | Sophia Vegan Leather Caged Convertible Crossbody (review here – I recently changed out the insert and found the perfect light gold crossbody strap) | Safavieh Tulum Area Rug in ivory/grey (3′ x 5′) | Click here to view a clip of the outfit on me
This tee is white with thin navy stripes and it has a relaxed fit. I should have ordered my usual size XXS for comparison since I think it would have been a better fit since size XS is loose allover including the sleeves. For size reference I’m 5′ 2.5″ and 113-115 pounds.
I’m wearing my old favorite ecru skinny jeans above but I recently ordered these white mid-rise toothpick jeans in the 8″ rise as seen on me here. I am waiting for the next sale to order the 9″ rise for comparison since I would prefer the slightly higher rise for more support. The inseam of my usual size 25 petite hit just above the ankle and the waistband is very stretchy so they don’t cut into your waist when you sit down.
This denim chore jacket fits true to size and it’s a chic alternative compared to the classic denim jacket. It hits higher on the hips so if you prefer a longer and more oversized fit then you may want to check out this jacket (review here) which comes in more colors. I just noticed this $22 version from Walmart as well.
J.Crew Factory Flare crop white jean in signature stretch, size 25 petite | Soludos Ibiza Sneaker (true to size) | Click here to view the clip from my try-on
These white flare crop jeans fit similar to skinny jeans with a slight kick at the hem. My usual size fit me well and the inseam hips above my ankles but the elder millennial in me still prefers skinny jeans. I wouldn’t pair the boxy jacket with flare crop jeans but I had to try both of them together to see for myself. I also ordered the flare crop jeans in the seton wash and they should arrive soon (the denim wash was on backorder so they shipped later and will arrive next week).
Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara Women’s Mid-Rise Shorts, size 00 (review here, similar here and here) | New Balance Women’s Dynasoft Pesu V1 Running Shoe (review here) | Click here to view a clip of the outfit on me
Here is what the denim chore jacket looks like with white shorts. This jacket is well made if you’re looking for something different but timeless.
Note: I purchased the above sneakers in store at New Balance Factory and there were no defects but the pair I ordered via Amazon came with yellow stains all over it.
I also ordered this ivory eyelet ruffle sweatshirt but they sent me an ivory pencil skirt instead. It wasn’t the first time I received the wrong item in a J.Crew order but customer service emailed me a free return shipping label when I called. I saw the sweatshirt in store and I didn’t love the material plus I also recently bought this puff sleeve sweatshirt (as seen here) and this white sweatshirt anyway.
Thanks for stopping by!
