Hits & Misses

I have always been the kind of person who reads the reviews on a piece of clothing before I buy it. Even though I always read them, I never write them #oops. So here is my thoughts on some items I have purchased lately.

Topshop Scallop Hem Miniskirt
Okay I actually loved this skirt. It's made of a pretty thick material similar to a ponte knit and you could easily dress it for winter with tights and booties. It also had an elastic waist band to my surprise and was super comfortable. I sadly wound up returning it because I purchased it in white and I just didn't see myself getting much use out of it in the coming months. It does come in black as well and I'm tempted!

Leith floral shift dress
I bought this with intent to wear it to a wedding we are attending this month. It had potential - loose and floral. Basically my two love languages. However when I tried it on it was choking me at the neck (which very well could be to blame on my boobs) All in all it was just sort of blah so back to the store it went!

Black Cut-Out Mini Sheath
When my sister in law texted me a photo of this dress in the black and white version I was like hot damn! I thought I could never pull it off though due in part to the peep hole and not being a size 2. She convinced me to try it on and I am so happy she did. Not only is this dress so comfortable, I went a size down in it and can wear a regular bra with it! It's worth mentioning I paid full price for this sucker - which I never do. This LBD is going to be on repeat.
Aden + Anais striped romper
I just happened to be in Nordstrom returning the two above items when I spotted this little number. As a fan of A+A swaddles I knew one of these would be coming home with me. I was slightly worried since it only sized to 12 months. However (as evidenced by the photo) it was still too big for her. My only gripe is that the muslin is very easily pulled on things. However it was too sweet to pass up. A lot more selection in the stores (not a lot is listed on Nordstrom's website) however this jacket is screaming BUY ME!
Hope you all have a long and relaxing weekend!! Happy Labor Day!
