I LOVE this green color...perfect Kelly Green and would be great today for St. Patrick's Day.  Love the cut and the cap sleeves.  Very flattering.  Perfect for work or play.  I went XS Petite because these type of shirts from J.Crew tend to run really big.  Well in this case the XSP was just a bit too snug so I'm going to go with a SP and I think it will be perfect.  Also comes in white and khaki. 

Also in this look are some new favorite black pants.  These are the high rise Cameron pants.  Love the fit...remind me of my favorite Banana Republic Sloan pants.  Just enough stretch and love the crop length.  Highly recommend.  Also comes in navy and olive.  True to size...I'm wearing a 4P. 

I really liked this drapey's perfect for work.  Love the fit and the cap sleeve.  My only issue is that it is very see through so you definitely have to wear a cami under it.  True to size.  Also comes in black and olive.  Shop other pieces in the look here - pants and shoes.  

I really wanted to like this top but it was just too boxy on me.  I went petite again and that worked for the length but the shirt itself just didn't have any shape.  It's a shame because I really like the chambray stripe and the overall style. 

Won't be posted a pic of me in the bikini I ordered but I wanted to review it.  I LOVE the print and the cut of this style top.  The top fit perfectly (I sized up to a small) but the matching bottoms were WAY TOO small in the tush region so sadly I had to return it. 

I've been on the hunt for a simple black blazer to pair with jeans.  I love the look and fit of the Parke blazer.  Great material, flattering shape and good quality.  And the polka pattern on the inside is a nice touch.  I should have steamed the bottom of the blazer before hand but I was a little lazy.  True to size (I'm wearing a 4P).  Comes in a whole host of other colors as well.  Shop other pieces in this look - tee, jeans and shoes

Love this flutter sleeve top.  The ruffle detail gives a basic white tee just a little something extra.  Perfect summer top with shorts but will also work with jeans or cropped pants.  True to size.  Wearing an XS.

Five Friday Favorites #18

I can't wait for the weather to warm up so for this week's Five Friday Favorites I'm highlighting five recent purchases that I can't wait to wear this spring.  

This is the perfect transition dress from Old Navy.  Love the sweatshirt material.  It's super soft and the lace up detail is the perfect touch.  Highly recommend.  True to size. 

#2 - Stella & Dot CeCe Earrings
I am going to be wearing these earrings ALL THE TIME this spring and summer.  Perfect color to go with so many of my outfits.  They are SO light don't feel like you are wearing a big earring.  Highly recommend picking up a pair. 

#3 - Colorful Jeans
Stepped out of my comfort zone with these but I'm so glad I did.  I adore these teal jeans from LOFT.  They are definitely going to be a staple this spring...dress them up or down.  And best news from you short ladies...they have petites! 

#4- Felicity & Co Dress 
I LOVE, LOVE this dress.  I can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can wear it.  Very flattering and such a great color.  And it pairs so nicely with favorite #2 this week.  Dress also comes in a pretty bright blue but I'm partial to the pink. 

#5 - Blush Sneakers 
Since spring weather can sometimes be too cool for flip flops I'm always looking for a cute sneaker to wear instead.  I LOVE these Universal Thread ones...and the $20 price tag is nice too.  They don't have half sizes so I recommend going a half size down.  I normally wear a 6.5 and I wear a 6 in these.

Five Friday Favorites #17

I've been super MIA this week from the Facebook and Instagram pages.  Work was absolutely INSANE and then I ended up getting stuck in NY for an extra night because of a snowstorm.  Here are this week's Five Friday Favorites.

#1 - New Living in Yellow x Gibson collection 
Living in Yellow is living out every fashion blogger's dream...her own line at Nordstrom.  She's partnered with one of my favorites - Gibson - on her very own line of amazing clothes.  Here are the ones I've picked up -

#2 - Face Mask 
All the travel, the late nights...and lately all the wine really dries my skin out.  I'm obsessed with these masks to help give my skin a hydrating boost.  I'm always looking for other skin masks.  What are some of your favorites?

#3 - Upcoming Hunter Target collaboration

I don't know about you but I am SUPER excited for the Hunter Target collaboration.  I've been wanting a new pair of short Hunters but haven't been able to justify the price but with this new collection, I'm sure the prices will be perfect!  

#4 - Air Pods
My husband bought me these for Valentine's Day and they are AMAZING.  They are so good for travel...especially on the train when I was back and forth taking calls.  Highly recommend. 

#5 - New Favorite Sandals 
I have a feeling these are going to be my go-to sandals this summer.  Obsessed with them.  I definitely recommend getting a pair before they sell out.  Three places I found you can buy them -

Trunk Club Reveal #5

I absolutely love this French Connection dress.  The print is so pretty...the fit is SUPER flattering.  But, the length was a bit to short for me for work.  It was also definitely too small so size up.  It also comes in a really pretty light blue version.  

This was my FAVORITE dress of all the ones I tried on.  I just love the cut of this dress.  It's sooo flattering.  I couldn't justify the $128 price tag but I don't have a real need for it right now.  I'm wearing a size 2 and I'd want to try a 4 just to see the difference but I definitely don't need petite.  Love this color too for spring/summer.  

Here's another fabulous dress from this trunk.  It's a super cute fit and flare dress from Charles Henry.  I LOVE the fit...sooo flattering.  I wasn't a huge fan of the color.  Would have rather it had been black or a spring/summer bright color.  Definitely recommend.  And it's under $100.  

I love the fit and flare dresses from Vince Camuto.  I have this style in a pretty bright blue so I passed on this print one.  It's really pretty and a great flattering fit.  Highly recommend.  

Always searching for new work pants...especially ones that fit me that I don't need to have hemmed.  I'm a huge fan of Banana Republic's Sloan but want some new choices.  I really liked these Halogen cropped pans.  Great price ($69)...perfect length for me when I get petites and they have several color options.  True to size.  Highly recommend.

Five Friday Favorites #16

This week's Five Friday Favorites goes along with the giveaway I'm doing on Facebook...all about Target's Universal Thread line! 

#1 - Simple Cotton Dress 
There's nothing I love more in the warmer weather months than a simple, cotton dress and this one is PERFECT.  Love the green color.  Great length.  Not too clingy.  Highly recommend.  

#2 - Blush Perforated Sneakers 
I am obsessed with these sneakers.  Love, love these for my weekend wear.  Will go with so many things.  Doesn't come in half sizes so I'd recommend you size down.  I normally wear a 6.5 and the 7 was too big. 

#3- Love a Plaid Shirt
I love a good plaid shirt.  I've got several in my closet and added this one too it.  Comes in a bunch of different color options but this one was my favorite.  Highly recommend.  True to size.  

#4 - Embroidered Slides 
These slides look way more expensive than the $24.99 price tag.  I love the embroidered detail.  These will go with so many outfits this spring and summer.  Perfect for work or play. 

#5 - Transition Tunic 
Love this lightweight sweater.  It will be the perfect transition top for spring.  Also comes in black but I'm partial to this cream color.  True to size.

DRESSING ROOM DIARIES - Target's Universal Thread

I'm a sucker for a plaid shirt and Target's new Universal Thread line had four amazing options.  I'd recommend sizing up.  The XS fit but I feel like once I wash and dry it will shrink and but too small.  They have four cute plaids - navy/gray; yellow/gray; blue; and my favorite and the one I took home - red. 

I had my eye on this black gingham print top when they released the sneak peek looks.  I love the sleeves and the black gingham print.  Unfortunately it's a little short for me.  I feel like I'd constantly be self conscious every time I moved my arms.  I do think I'm long waisted so not everyone might have the same issue.  It's also a very lightweight material and not lined. 

The camo green color is going to be huge this season...I'm starting to see it pop up everywhere including this T-shirt dress. It's so comfortable and very flattering.  Wear it when the weather warms up slightly with a denim jacket and booties and then trade those in for flip flops when the weather gets hot.  I can't wait to pair the dress with these earrings

Two items from Universal Thread in this review.  Absolulely LOVE the shorts.  The fit and style are on point and you can't beat the $16.99 price tag.  They are VERY similar to my much more expensive Paige jean shorts.  This top is also super cute.  Cap sleeve with blue embroidery detail.  Nice and light weight for the cooler months.  Everything true to size.  Definitely recommend both. 

This is another top I was super excited for when I saw the preview but didn't LOVE it when I tried it on.  It's pretty boxy and again the length (like the gingham one) is just too short.  It's a very lightweight material.  I do love the color and the pattern.  Didn't go home with it.  True to size. 

You can't beat an $8 tee.  This v-neck one is soft and the perfect top to layer or on it's own.  I also picked it up in a light purple...and ordered in olive.  I live in these types of tops.  True to size.  Wearing an XS. 

My eye was quickly drawn to this tie tank.  It has a beautiful black stripe with beautiful embroider detail.  Unfortunately it was a little too big and overwhelming on my frame.  If you are a little taller than my 5'1" height I would definitely recommend. 

This Universal Thread top reminds me of my favorite Vince Camuto tank.  If I didn't already own it in red I would definitely have snagged it up.  It also comes in black but we know I definitely don't need another black top.  True to size.  Super cute.  Definitely recommend. 

I love a good romper and this one is awesome.  It's a gauze like fabric...very flattering and I love the embroidery detail.  There's a tie but I wasn't a huge fan of it so I hid it.  Don't think I'd wear it with it.  The waist cinches enough with the elastic that I don't think you need the tie.  Can't wait to pair it with a wedge or heel this spring. 

I really, really wanted to like this dress.  I love the style and pattern but the bust area was WAY TOO small.  It's weird because I don't have a large chest either.  I think sizing up would not work because the rest of the dress would be too big.  Such a bummer.  Anyone else have luck with it?

Last of the this dress.  It's soft and comfortable.  Fits so great.  I'll be able to dress it up or down.  Also comes in a solid option. True to size.  Highly recommend.

DRESSING ROOM DIARIES - Universal Thread Shoes

Recapping all the shoes I purchased online from Target's new Universal Thread line.  Check it out -

Yes, yes, yes is all I can say about these slides.  I LOVE them.  They will definitely be a staple this spring.  I love the perforated detail.  Also come in black.  True to size.  

I'm always looking for new flip flops because I live in them as soon as the weather gets warm.  I was super excited to see these nude ones because they are dressier than my Rainbows.  Unfortunately they weren't very comfortable and definitely felt like they would fall apart easily.  They only come in full sizes so go up a half size if you are normally a half size.  Also come in white and black.

Love these embroidered slides.  At first I thought they were too wide for my feet but the more I wore them the more I got used to the feeling.  These will definitely be a staple this spring and summer. 

 These are cute strappy sandals but the heel wasn't high enough and the ankle strap was too lose.  The color and style are great but didn't work for me.  They also come in black.  True to size.  

Absolutely LOVE these cut out sandals.  They are super comfortable and the cutout detail is on point.  Will go with sooo many looks.  True to size. Also comes in black.  Highly recommend.  

Love these cork soled mules.  Perfect for lots of different looks.  They aren't too heavy. Also come in black.  They don't come in half sizes so it's hard to get the right sizing for me...the 7 was a little too big but the 6 was too small.  Might have to pass on these.
