It's time for the second installment of Try It On Tuesday where I go out and and try my hand at "modeling" some cute clothes that catch my eye so you can see how they look on a real person.
Clothes look so different on different body types and since most of us aren't built like runway models it's hopefully helpful for you to see them on an everyday woman.
Just to give you an idea of my size I'm 5'3" tall and I wear an x-small/small in tops and 4, 6 on the bottom with an occasional 8 if they are cut super straight because I AM NOT cut super straight.
I have what I consider a slight pear shape to hour glass shape.
Let's get started...
This top caught my eye on the hanger and I loved it when I tried it on. I guess a lot of other women felt the same way because it's now sold out. There is a similar one included in the half yearly sale for 40% off.
I. love. hot pink. This tiered mixed media tank is perfect for warm weather. You can dress it up or down with white jeans, regular denim or cute cropped pants and it's dressier than just a regular old tank. It would look great with a long necklace which a again could give it a more casual or dressy feel depending on your choice.
Apparently I have a thing for sleeveless tops...Haha
This one is a jersey material but it's not to clingy. Not a trapeze top, but not a straight tank either. The stripes going every which way add a lot of visual interest and help camoflage any flaws you might have. wink, wink,
This tropical print shift is polyester. Don't say EWWW, it is seriously so SOFT. The fabric is a super smooth, velvety feel and has such a fun print. Floral dresses are everywhere you look right now and this one is just darling. You could wear it with cute sandals for a day out or add heels for a dressier look and because it's a shift there's extra room around the tummy if you're going out to dinner...go ahead and have dessert.
I talked about how I have been wanting a new watch for a long time in an earlier post and how I got this one for Mother's Day.
I'm still loving it and I love the way this Kendra Scott bracelet pairs with it. It would be really cute to stack a couple of them, maybe even in mixed metals. Gold and silver? Yes, please.
Oh my goodness I love this cute little linen shirt. It's made to tie in the front and hang longer in the back but can also be worn untied for a different look. The colors in it are just so pretty and it's really comfortable. Wear it with flip flops like I am here or add a cute pair of wedges to dress it up a bit.
I've mentioned previously that I'm just not a regular tee kinda girl, but from time to time I like to have one for a casual look. This is the one I was wearing last weekend in the pictures we took for Katie's Sr. Ball. I was really excited to come across this knot front tee that is more flattering especially if you tend to be short waisted like I am.
I've found several cute dresses lately and this is definitely one. It's light weight and cool and comfy feeling AND 40% off. It just screams summer.
Here's another example of not your average tee I found. It looks like a tee from the front, right? But the back is a precious pleated white material that hangs longer than the front. Paired with white jeans this would be so cute.
STRIPES! I love stripes and I love a cross front top so this was an A+. It's a rayon material and looked great with regular jeans but would look so crisp with a pair of white jeans. I really want to go on a vacation to the beach and take this top to wear out to dinner after a day by the pool. Perfection!
CUTE! That's the word I'd use to describe this top. It's a little sheer so you have to wear a cami under it, but it's so lightweight and comfortable and I just love the olive and black together. You could easily pair this with a black jacket or sweater and take it right into the fall with jeans and boots or keep it summer casual with your black flip flops like I am here.
This is another top that is dying to go on vacation with you this summer. It looked really bad over the cami I had on and I was tired and lazy by the time I got to it, so you'll just have to imagine it on. The back is absolutely so cute with all the little straps. L♥VE.
So there you go. I hope seeing things on is helpful. It's always surprising to me how things I think will look great may not and things I'm not so sure about surprise me. I'm always telling Katie you have to try it on, you never know.
