Hi, friends! We made it to Friday! Woohoo! This summer is already in full swing and the little guy is keeping me busy! If anyone has suggestions on more indoor activities, I’m all ears! It’s supposed to get up into the 90’s here next week. Rounding up LOTS of recent finds and majority of them are on sale for Memorial Day! I have tried a lot of pieces on recently and added a few things here and there to my closet. I thought it would be best to round them all up here! Don’t forget to scroll all the way down and check out all of the best Memorial Day sales from our favorite retailers!
Let’s first start with a fan favorite here – Loft! Everything is 40% off for Memorial Day with code FINALLY! I had been holding out for Loft these past few weeks and they really came in strong with their new arrivals. Our location here in Jacksonville is now carrying the beach collection! I was so surprised to see it when I walked in and immediately wanted to try everything on.
I did take a few things home with me but first let’s talk this white button down flare dress – it’s back from last year! This style became really popular last summer and it’s still going strong. There’s so many options out there but I love the quality and fit of this one. A few others I have tried on have been really tight at the top and hits in a really high, unflattering spot on my chest. This one sits just right and has just enough movement in the dress. I am wearing a nude slip underneath and the size 0. Button down flare dress (size 0)
You know those dresses you pick up in the store and think oh this might be cute, but then you are totally surprised and in love with it once you try it on?! Well friends, that was this swing dress! I absolutely adore this dress! It’s a little swing dress with these small white dots. Dresses like this keep in your closet for years! Wear it as a work option, date night, to a wedding! I’m so glad this one came home with me! Now I just need my hubby to take me on a date so I can wear it! Wearing the size small. Dotted tiered swing dress (size S)
I shared this cute neutral romper on Instagram the other day! Rompers and maxi dresses have already been my go to this summer. This is a great staple piece with the neutral stripes that can be worn for so many summer occasions. If you prefer a little color, throw on a fun earring or keep it simple with a wicker earring and sandals. Striped double V romper (size 0)
There’s so many pretty pieces at Loft right now, so I’m sharing a few others that I tried on! I could not get over how soft and lightweight this floral dress is. The buttons are functional and the floral print is so pretty! This dress is a great work option to dress up with heels or weekend option to dress down with sandals. I’m wearing the size 0. Floral button flutter dress (size 0)
Hello easy summer dress! So cute with the tie waist and although I am not particularly a red person, the subtle color was really pretty! Another dress to keep in your closet and wear to work, church or an end of school year event. I am wearing the size XS and found it to run a tad big. Striped tie waist shirtdress (size XS)
Florals are so popular right now! This dress is stunning! The yellow is so pretty and the tie waist is really flattering with the flutter sleeve. Pair it with an easy sandal, straw bag and you are good to go! I’m wearing the size 0. Bouquet flutter shirtdress (size 0)
I included this one in the Memorial Day outfit options post earlier this week. An easy romper for summer to throw on over your swimsuit or to wear out to a casual lunch or dinner on the patio. I’m wearing the size XS and probably could have sized up to a small. Ruffle drawstring romper (size XS)
The cutest little tie waist chambray top. A staple to wear with shorts or dress pants for work. I paired them with these adorable eyelet shorts. I was actually in between sizes in the shorts – the XS was a little short and the small was a tad big in the waist. Chambray cap sleeve top (size XS) | eyelet drawstring shorts (size XS)
Up next – Target! You guys absolutely loved this dress I posted about 2 weeks ago. On my latest trip last week, I came across these 2! This adorable cream colored shirtdress and this black maxi were both a pleasant surprise! I’m wearing the size XS in the shirtdress. It’s so feminine and classic and while it fit of it is supposed to be oversized, I don’t feel like it’s too big. My husband actually really loved this one! Trapeze shirtdress (size XS)
This is a dress I would probably not look at twice online but I really love it! The eyelet details at the bottom makes it look more expensive than it really is – like a classic dress from JCrew (which they actually have a similar dress there now). I’m wearing the size small and could have probably gone with the XS. Sleeveless A-line maxi dress (size S)
When I asked a few weeks back which retailers you would like to see here, Madewell was a top suggestion. I stopped by the store the other day and while the store didn’t really have much, online has so.many.options! I only tried on 3 things but I think they are definitely worth sharing! I know Madewell denim is all the rage so here are my thoughts – I only tried on the high rise denim shorts. I love how high waisted they are and where they hit around my waist. I thought the rolled up version was too short for me but I did love them unrolled shown below. High-rise denim shorts (size 26) | rainbow smocked top (size XS)
H&M was also a highly suggested retailer to try. I placed an order a little over 2 weeks ago and while a few items didn’t work, here’s what did. My latest browse on the website has resulted in lots of good finds which I am including at the bottom of this post but sadly they are not having a Memorial Day sale.
Is their anything cuter than a striped romper? I love the fit of this one! Not too tight and the waist band with the draped fabric is really flattering. I’m wearing the size 2 here. Striped romper (size 2)
An easy, lightweight striped dress for summer! This one has the cutest little ruffle details on the sleeves and the cinched waist makes it really flattering. It’s under $20 and comes in 3 other pretty colors. Wearing the size S and could have gone with the XS. Striped jersey dress (size S)
And lastly (are y’all still with me?!), I shared in my last Amazon try on that I had ordered this one shoulder top. I would normally pair this top with white, but I wanted to try something a little different and really love the casual look of this with denim shorts. It is actually not on Prime but shipping is free and I just waited a little longer to get it in. Not sure how easy a return would be but it’s definitely a keeper. Wearing the size small. Some things are worth waiting for and this top definitely was! Striped one shoulder top (size S) | denim shorts (size 25)
