Dressing Room Diaries

Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the weekend! What plans do you have? This is the first weekend in what feels like forever that we have no official plans!! Can I get a ‘hallelujah!”?? I love traveling and volleyball, but this girl is ready for a few days of books and nothingness!

Thanks for the love this week on our 10 Spring Tops post HERE, and I’m thrilled you loved the Vuori on Vacation looks I shared HERE, too. And if you missed it, last week we had darling Vacation Essentials HERE and a big Amazon Fashion Haul HERE.

Today I’ve got an all new Dressing Room Diaries for you, and it’s chock full of the cutest new arrivals! It’s a range of price points from a mix of retailers, and even some of my favorite small shops I know you’ll love! My job is to find the cutest things, at the best prices, and I think you’ll love these! (I know I did!!)

Fit Note: I’m 5’4″-ish, 125 pounds-ish, with a slight pear shape. My usual size is XS/2. 

Tops & Shirts //

Pink and floral and flutter sleeves, oh my!! This top is a silky woven material, fully lined and so cute with denim, trousers (I’m sharing that below!), and skirts. Such a fun and vibrant piece that’s perfect for work and weekend.

These white jeans are a find from last month (see that Dressing Room Diaries HERE) … they are a great fit, with no sheerness and the cutest flared hem. I do recommend sizing up one!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top and size 27 jeans.

You know I love a statement sleeve, and this flutter top creates such a flattering silhouette! Made of 100% cotton, it’s lightweight, but not sheer. It’s a touch on the cropped side, but has enough length to give it a little half-tuck with mid-rise jeans.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top.

Ruffle Sleeve Tassel Blouse (code SUGARPLUM10)
Mid Rise Cropped White Jeans (Size 27) | Leather Slide Sandals | Heart Necklace | Gold Hoop Earrings | Stretchy Bracelet | Blue Bead Bracelet

 

This gorgeous blouse is a fully-lined gauzy crepe, with a flattering halter neckline and tie in the back. It has a loose, a-line shape, and is a great work to weekend piece to pair with everything from dressy trousers to denim. Perfect for date night, too!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top.

I shared this oversized shirt in my Vacation Essentials post (see it with the matching shorts HERE), and it’s become one of my fave finds lately! Made of a soft, but crisp, cotton, I love the preppy stripes and oversized fit. It’s super versatile for wearing with everything from trousers to over swimsuits!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XXS … it runs really large, so size down!

Blue and white is so fresh for Spring and Summer! This fun top has a great mix of patterns and easy peplum shape, with cute ruffle and tassel details to make it a little more special.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top.

I shared this top earlier in the week in an olive hue (see it HERE), and couldn’t resist it in black and white. Made of the softest rayon blend, it’s fully-lined with a cute cotton eyelet trim. Pair it with skirts or denim, it’s the cutest closet staple for a range of combos.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top.

I love a soft, gauzy cotton … especially as the weather warms up! This top is not only crazy soft, but has the cutest puffed sleeves and comes in the most flattering shade of pink.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top.

Hello cute!! This linen-blend peplum top has the cutest crochet trim in pink and navy, with a bold print that’s so chic paired with white. It also comes with a fun matching pant I’m sharing below.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top, but size up if you’re busty or in-between.

Blazers & Spring Sweaters //

This blazer needs no introduction … I’ve been swooning over it for years. Get ready to swoon some more, because it now comes in this gorgeous periwinkle blue!! I love this blazer with everything from denim to dresses, nothing makes me feel more chic or pulled together!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS blazer.

I added this sweater to cart so fast!! A chunky spring-weight, it’s so cute paired with beach pants and shorts, and perfect for vacations and everyday. (See the fun gauzy pants styled for the beach and vacation HERE.)

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS sweater.

Always a sucker for stripes, especially in the classic blue and white! This relaxed sweater is super soft and perfectly lightweight for spring days and summer nights.

Fit Tip: I sized up to a Small for a slouchy fit, but it’s already a relaxed fit.

Short Dresses //

Fans of our best-selling Decked Out Day Dress rejoice … it’s finally back in this fun textured white, and a brand-new black!! This dress sold out in a day last summer, so clearly y’all are smitten! It’s fully lined with such an easy, flattering fit. I wear it with flat sandals and wedges, and even over a swimsuit … making it the perfect Little White Dress to pack!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS dress.

I found your dress for all the summer holidays! So cute with the bold red and blue print, and fun statement sleeves. Made of 100% cotton, it’s crisp and lightweight, in an easy swing fit.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS dress.

I’m crazy for the tropical print and rich colors of this flirty dress! Made of the softest, gauzy cotton, it’s fully lined with a drawstring waist and flirty skirt. Wear the ties at the neck open or closed to mix it up.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS dress.

The print of this dress is so chic and looks so high-end, don’t you think!? Made of a poly-satin, it easily works for brunch with the girls and days in the office. It’s on the shorter side, so might not be a good fit for the tall girls.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small, so size up!

Stop it with the flirty statement sleeves!! This dress is so feminine and fun, but without being too girly. I love the heavier textured fabric, plus it’s fully lined.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS dress.

An easy dress for brunches, school events, and even dressed up for Easter … it’s a crisp cotton poplin with an easy-to-wear shape, ruffle collar, and bold statement sleeves. It comes in a range of fun colors, too! (Find them all HERE.)

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS dress.

More fun blue and white (can you tell I’m a fan?!) … this print is super on-trend! It’s made of a textured cotton with a medium weight and fully lined, with an easy, relaxed fit.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small, but would prefer XS, so it’s true-to-size.

Geometric Bell Sleeve Dress (code SUGARPLUM10)

Talk about a fun sleeve detail … this dressy crepe sheath is a gorgeous shade of blue, fully lined, and has a gorgeous pleated shoulder.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size 0, but need a size 2 for a better fit. (This size hugs rather than hangs as it should.)

Maxi Dresses //

Where was this dress last month when we were in Mexico?! So fabulous for vacation, nights out, and all your fun summer parties! It’s a gorgeous print with a sassy one-shoulder and subtle side cut-out. The waistband is a comfy elastic, and the skirt a fun, fuller shape.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small, but I don’t think sizing up is needed.

The best-selling nap dresses are still thriving, and with good reason! They’re so easy to throw on and go, and are unbelievably comfortable! This one is a stretchy, textured poly-blend, with fun flutter sleeves and comfy smocked top.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress and jacket.

Another crazy comfy option, this dress was a best-seller last year in olive! In fact, my friend Val wore it so often she asked our friends at Gibsonlook if they could make it in black and add pockets … and here we are!! Thanks, Val (and Gibsonlook!), for this chic and easy dress with smocked top and flutter sleeve!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS dress.

How fun is the colorful print of this midi dress, with surprise cut-out back?! It’s a soft rayon blend, with elastic trim at the neck, sleeves and waist, making it comfy, too. And you’ll never guess where I found it!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS, but it runs a little big, so I’d size down.

Pants //

I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect pink pants for spring, and these certainly deliver! They have a smooth flat front, with a flattering wide leg and a touch of stretch. They come in a few other colors, but you’d be surprised by how neutral and versatile the pink are! They aren’t lined, making them lightweight (but not sheer).

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size 2 and they’re a touch snug, so I’d suggest sizing up (which might require a hem, given they’re already full-length).

Wide Leg Pants

Another fun trouser option, this style has a more relaxed fit through the hips and thighs.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size 2p, but would prefer the regular length.

Wide Leg Trousers

Go bold with these darling linen-blend pants with comfy pull-on elastic waist and cropped wide leg. Pair them with the matching top, or tone them down with a white or pink tee.

Fit Tip: I accidentally ordered a size XXS, so these are snug … so need my usual XS.

Skirts & Shorts //

Hello pink plaid! This skirt is so stinking cute, and a definite keeper for me! A lightweight cotton, it has a comfy pull-on elastic waist and cute tiered layers.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS skirt.

Plaid Ruffle Skirt

This skirt is a similar pull-on style, but in a dressier crepe material that’s fully lined. Easy to keep it casual with sandals, or dress it up with a wedge or heeled sandal.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS tank and skirt.

My long-time favorite white denim shorts are finally back, and I’ll be wearing them on repeat all season! They have a high rise and slightly longer inseam, with a soft finish and lots of stretch. These colorful tees are super soft, too!

Fit Tip: The shorts run large, so definitely size down! I’m in a size 25 and they’re still a little big. The tees are both size Small.

I’ve shared these denim shorts several times over the years … they’re pricey, but truly so, so good! I reach for them so often my cost-per-wear is basically free at this point!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size 26, they’re a relaxed fit.

  5. I just tried to use your CASSIE15 code at Avara. It didn’t work. This was just Friday. Do you know if it still works? Thank you,

      Hi Gloria! I just tried it and it worked for me. I believe their policy is that it can be used once a month by the same email address… have you shopped at Avara already in March? That’s the only thing I can think of for why it’s not working for you, so sorry!! xo, C
