Dressing Room Diaries

Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the weekend! My friend Suzie is here working her Flybrow magic! She started doing pop-up shops at the Northpark Kiehl’s a couple of years ago, which has not only been great for so many of you, but it also means I get to see her every eight weeks!

Did I mention we’re going to Kenya next month for our bestie Val’s wedding?! So exciting, right?! So we’ll likely spend the weekend trying to figure out what the heck we’re packing! It’s part safari and part beach wedding… and the kicker is, we’re only allowed 33 pounds of luggage each! So that will be some very strategic packing, ha!

Today I’ve got a fun Dressing Room Diaries for you, chock-full of so many new arrivals for the season. Typically for these posts I’m just ordering new arrivals that catch my eye, but between the wedding, upcoming travels and events, I’ve been on the hunt for some very specific styles… so this DRD is more of my own personal shopping, and hopefully they fit some of your needs, too! So let’s get started…

Dresses & Jumpsuits //

I discovered this shirtdress last year and it was one of my go-to styles for a range of events…so I’m thrilled to see it back in all new prints!! It’s super soft and lightweight cotton, and fully-lined with beautiful button detail and a fun grosgrain tie. I don’t have anything specific to wear them yet, but I know they’ll be perfect for all the spring events, so I’m keeping both!

Fit Tip: It runs large, I’m in a size 0 and it’s still a bit loose.

I have a cocktail dinner coming up, and wanted something that feels dressy and chic, but also comfy and not too exposed…this jumpsuit fits the bill perfectly! It’s a medium-weight crepe material with a touch of stretch, and a sassy, but bra-friendly, neckline. The wide leg pants are flattering, and on the longer side for tall girls, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS.

Sleeveless Jumpsuit
Black Pumps | Teardrop Earrings

This dress is as easy and fun to wear as it is cute! Not only does it come in the best prints, but the mini-pleats and over-sized sleeve are so chic! It has an elastic waist and tie belt with beaded tassel trim, and is fully-lined.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small.

Groovy Chiffon Dress
Strappy Block Heels | Teardrop Earrings

This brand is a new-to-me find, and I’m crazy for all their bold prints and colors! This satin shirtdress has a subtle ballon sleeve and flattering belted waist. Add a blazer for work, or bold jewelry for evening. It’s comfortable and versatile!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small.

Belted Shirtdress
Black Pumps | Teardrop Earrings

A great dress for transitioning to spring, this woven midi has a fun floral print, but in darker colors for the season. It has a flutter sleeve, smocked waistband and fully-lined. And good news, our favorite notch blazer is back in this fun Ultramarine Blue color!! Use code SUGARPLUM10 to save on both!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS in both the dress and blazer.

Our best-selling GLxHSP Decked Out Day Dress is back in all new prints and colors! It’s one of the most versatile dresses in my closet, with the easy fit and feminine details, I reach for it for everything from vacations to lunch with friends. Add a blazer and heels for work, pair it with sandals or sneakers, or even a bootie and jacket! (See how I wore it in Cabo HERE.)

Fit Tip: It run’s a bit relaxed… I’m wearing a size XS in the coral dots and size XXS in the navy.. the difference is subtle, so size according to the fit you prefer.

Special Occasion Dresses //

I’m crazy for every detail of this dress… the cut-out design, the tiered skirt, and the gorgeous colors (it comes in several, including black!). It’s fully-lined with adjustable straps, and a subtle metallic thread woven for added specialness. And given the unique style, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the price point! I’m wearing it to Val’s wedding…I just can’t decide which color! What do you think?

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size 2.

Tiered Cut-Out Maxi Dress
Strappy Block Heels | Teardrop Earrings | Tennis Bracelet

Every closet needs a little black dress that really WOWS, and I don’t think they get any sassier or chicer than this one! I’m crazy for the combo of flat sequins and fringe tiers. Plus, the plunging neckline and nipped waist are so flattering.

Fit Tip: Reviews said it runs large, so I sized down to a 0, but would prefer my usual size 2 (which I’ve already ordered, because I’m obsessed!).

Tiered Fringe Mini Dress
Black Pumps | Teardrop Earrings | Tennis Bracelet

Dressier options can be tricky in winter, so I love this long sleeve, drop waist dress! The color is gorgeous, it’s easy and comfortable, and the heavy lace overlay is so on-trend.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS.

Eyelet Drop-Waist Dress
Black Pumps | Teardrop Earrings | Tennis Bracelet

This dress is all kinds of spectacular! I love the gorgeous tone-on-tone sequins, and the flattering fit-and-flare shape. The neckline has a sassy deep plunge, with a sheer illusion to keep it from being ‘too much.’

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small.

Shimmery Midi Dress
Strappy Block Heels | Teardrop Earrings | Tennis Bracelet

Does this silhouette look familiar? It’s because it’s my go-to black tie dress from Amazon (found HERE), now available in a fun midi length! It’s a stretchy, crepe-style material, that fits like a glove and is so incredibly flattering! I love the halter neckline and the asymmetrical hem…not to mention the incredible price!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small.

Halter Midi Dress
Black Pumps | Teardrop Earrings | Tennis Bracelet

This showstopping dress was a top contender for Val’s wedding, but considering the weigh restrictions, it didn’t make the cut. But it’s so beautiful on, and an incredibly gorgeous design and execution. The top has built-in bra support and coverage, with a flattering high waist for an elongating look.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size 2, but need a size down.

Tiered Plunge Slit Dress
Strappy Block Heels | Teardrop Earrings | Tennis Bracelet

Another fun option for winter events, this shift dress is easy and forgiving, with a sheer sleeve and bold lace overlay that makes such a festive statement!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS.

Sweaters & Tops //

My crush on pink is year-round, but especially in Valentine season! This knit sweater is crazy-soft and stretchy, with a fun pleated shoulder and puffed sleeve. The sneakers were a Christmas gift…and while they’re a splurge…they are so fun and unique! And considering I’m living in flat shoes these days, they’ll be on repeat for sure! (Keep reading to hear about these jeans, because they’re good!!)

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size small sweater and size 2 jeans. The sneakers are whole sizes only, so I size down half.

Striped Puff Sleeve Sweater (code CASSIE15)
Raw Hem Flare Jeans (code CASSIE15) (Also HERE) | Maroon Sneakers | Teardrop Earrings | Tennis Bracelet

More fun sweaters from one of my favorite shops… both super soft and so comfy! And code CASSIE15 saves you 15%!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small in both.

Floral Sweater (code CASSIE15) | Vertical Stripe Sweater (code CASSIE15)
Raw Hem Flare Jeans (code CASSIE15) (Also HERE) | Teardrop Earrings | Tennis Bracelet

The ‘lady jacket’ style of sweaters is still going strong, such a flattering and feminine silhouette that’s easily dressed up or down. This striped option is so cute, with little gold buttons and the perfect cropped fit for pairing with high-rise denim, trousers or skirt. (Keep reading to hear about these jeans, because I’m obsessed!!)

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small, but need to size up one.

Striped Lady Sweater
Wide Leg Flare Jeans (Also HERE) | Penny Loafers | Teardrop Earrings | Tennis Bracelet

It’s never too early to start thinking Spring, and this striped top is darling for everything from jeans to skirts! It’s a crisp cotton, with a feminine ruffle neckline and full sleeves. I love the classic blue and white stripe for a preppy look. The jeans you’ve seen multiple times, I’ve been waring them on repeat for months!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS top and 26 jeans.

Poplin Ruffle Blouse (code SUGARPLUM10)
Wide Leg Pocket Jeans (code CASSIE15) | Loafers | Teardrop Earrings | Tennis Bracelet

I shared some fun Valentine tops and sweaters HERE, and this new arrival is another darling find! I wore it on stories yesterday, and the messages came flying in! Not only is it darling, but it’s perfectly relaxed and so cozy, and code SUGARPLUM10 saves you 10%!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small.

Resort //

I’ve always got my eye on warm-weather styles, no matter the season! And resort finds this time of year are always especially fun and stylish! This dress is equal parts darling and sassy, with the plunging neckline and low back. The straps are adjustable and there’s even a tie in the back to create more support through the chest. It’s a super lightweight cotton, but lined on top and not sheer at all.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS-petite, but prefer the regular length for a full maxi.

In fact, I love the dress so much I ordered in multiple color ways… help me choose!!! Which is your fave color?

Fit Tip: These are the XS-regular, so you can see the slight difference in size.

Jean Jacket (code CASSIE15) | Strappy Sandals | Teardrop Earrings | Tennis Bracelet

There’s nothing easier than a palazzo pant! I pair them with tanks, tees, and lightweight sweaters, and even over swimsuits as chic cover-ups. These prints are darling, with comfy pull-on elastic waists and silky-soft material.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small in both the pants and sweater.

VACAY Sweater (code SUGARPLUM10)
Cream Palazzo Pants (code SUGARPLUM10) | Patchwork Palazzo Pants (code SUGARPLUM10) | Strappy Sandals | VExHSP Grace Necklace | Teardrop Earrings | Tennis Bracelet

Two darling summer-weight sweaters, perfect for pairing with palazzo pants or jean shorts!

More wide-leg pant options, these finds are the cutest prints and so comfy! The blue print is a little more structured, with a belted waist and high rise. The stripes are a linen blend, with mid-rise and longer length. The other star of this show is the tank!! A sturdy, stretchy cotton…with a built-in bra support!! I’m going to need it in a range of colors this summer!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small floral pant and XS striped. The tank is size XS.

Lounge //

Loungewear and sets remain top-sellers with you, and this ribbed set is another fun option! The hoodie top has a fun ruching on the side and slightly cropped length, while the pull-on pant has an easy wide-leg and cropped length.

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

Denim //

I’ve been on the hunt for an everyday wide leg jean that was both flattering and didn’t overwhelm my frame, and I hit the jackpot with these! They are so soft and stretchy, with a comfy mid-rise, and thanks to perfect pocket-placement, they have the magical ability to give the illusion of a perky bum!

These are a touch long on me (but thanks to the raw hem, that’s an easy fix), but I love how they are more fitted through the thigh, but get wider towards the bottom. So you get the style, without added bulk, you know?! I wish they weren’t so pricey, but I’m willing to pay when it comes to great-fitting denim that makes me feel good!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size 27.

Puff Sleeve Sweater (code SUGARPLUM10) | Sneakers | Teardrop Earrings | Tennis Bracelet

I’m a long-time fan of Kut from the Kloth jeans… they’re always the softest denim with flattering fits for a woman’s body. Plus, the price point is usually under $100! This new Kelsey style is the perfect everyday jean, with a straight leg and cropped length, perfect for pairing with sneakers, loafers, and booties. Plus, they are incredibly comfortable!
