Greetings, associates, and comfortable hump day! In the present day I don’t have one new outfit for you… I have roughly 30. (Sure, I counted!)
I decided to go ahead and share a attempt on haul as part of my 25 Days of Summer time Style as a result of… properly, why not? These are still full outfits, just mirror selfies quite than skilled footage, and I feel most likely favor these anyway.
I’ve been saving up try-on pix for some time, so grab a cup of espresso, a glass of wine, a can of soda… whatever floats your boat, because this submit is a doozie!
You recognize the drill… I order plenty of clothes to vet for the blog, and far of it goes back. Some issues don’t work for me, however it may be just right for you, so I share my hits and misses.
For measurement reference, I’m 5’5″ and about 140# in the mean time. I are likely to run between sizes rather a lot — perhaps most of us do — but I find this happens extra once I’m up 5 lbs from my perfect weight (which I am now… hiya, summer time!)
All that to say, I sometimes wear a small or medium in tops, 6 or eight (28 or 29) in shorts and pants, and a measurement eight in clothes. I’ve acquired extra of an hourglass determine, so I look greatest in structured items, however I attempt to point out how gadgets may flatter other body varieties once I can.
Let’s get began! All hyperlinks and descriptions are under the photographs.
Trunk Club Unboxing
I acquired a field from my Trunk Club subscription final week, and it was an fascinating selection… more of a spring box than a summer time field, however I did like most of what my stylist picked for me.
Caslon Henley Tee (measurement M) // This tee is a nice high quality, medium-weight knit. It’s delicate and feels good on. I like the henley styling and that it’s not too low-cut. It also has longer sleeves than some tees — so in the event you’re not an enormous fan of your higher arms, you may like this prime.
My stylist sent me a medium, which is a measurement larger than I sometimes wear in the Caslon brand, but I feel it’s the correct measurement. As a result of it’s a stretchy knit that is pretty form-fitting, I wouldn’t want it any tighter.
I don’t love the shirttail hemline but in any other case, it’s really cute. It comes in a TON of colors (and some stripes) and retails for $29, which could be very affordable for the quality.
Kut from the Kloth Gidget cutoff shorts (measurement 8) // These shorts are thick and stretchy and really snug, they usually have a four″ inseam, which is a pleasant size for most girls. They’re TTS or measurement up if in between.
Nine West Gianna slides (measurement 7.5) // I really like these slides a lot I’ve them in each camel and white, though I discover myself sporting the camel extra. The standard is really nice for the worth point, and I really like the small print. You might need to measurement down half, particularly when you have flat or slender ft. I typically measurement down half in slides.
Caslon Cinch Waist Utility Jacket (measurement S) // I actually like this jacket, and the black-white crossdye is a welcome change from the standard olive green utility jacket. It’s a nice mid-weight, undoubtedly extra of a spring or fall jacket than a summer time one. This jacket runs TTS (true to measurement), or measurement down if in between.
also sporting: J.Crew Classic cotton V-neck T-shirt (measurement M) with Paige Verdugo ankle skinnies (measurement 30; measurement up) and Nine West Gianna slides (measurement 7.5; measurement down half when you have flat ft)
Caslon Hoodie Pullover (measurement S) // I really like this hoodie. The mélange knit is kind of a sweatshirt materials, and I like the feel so much. It’s mild enough to wear with shorts on a cool summer time night time, but in addition heat sufficient to wear with jeans this fall, and it’s priced at slightly below $50. It’s true to measurement for Caslon, the small matches me perfectly.
Mom Looker ankle skinny denims (measurement 29) // I still love these jeans, and I do consider they’ve replaced my beloved AG legging ankle jeans as my go-to casual distressed denims.
I can’t consider I’m even saying that, and I still have both, but I choose the 9.25″ rise and 27.5″ inseam of those Mother jeans over the AG’s 8.25″ rise and 28″ inseam. These not often go on sale, though I did snag mine for 25% off, so I will hold an eye fixed out for you!
Veja Esplar sneakers (measurement 39/8) // Additionally still loving these kicks and proud of my determination after reviewing over 10 pairs of sneakers earlier this spring. They broke in fairly simply, although I nonetheless don’t lace them into the final holes. This actual fashion is tough to seek out, but there are some sizes at Bloomies, Nordstrom, and Want Provide Co.
Caslon Linen Mix Boyfriend Blazer (measurement S) // This jacket can also be really cute on, however the boyfriend blazer actually isn’t my type.
If camo isn’t your factor, it is available in different colors — some solids and some stripes. The white and flax are very nice neutrals when you need work wear, and of course they can be worn casually as nicely — as shown here. It’s TTS, or measurement down if in between.
additionally sporting: J.Crew Vintage cotton V-neck T-shirt (measurement M) with Mother Looker ankle skinny denims (measurement 29) and Veja Esplar sneakers (measurement 39/eight)
Bobeau Aspect Tie Tee (measurement S) // This was my favorite piece in the entire field, and it’s undoubtedly a keeper. I’m loving tie-front tops this season, and I really like how this tie is on the aspect. It comes in 7 colors, however it’s just a tad see-through, so go together with a darker shade should you’re involved about that.
also sporting: Joe’s Jeans Bermuda frayed cuff denim shorts (measurement 29) with Fortunate Model Garston espadrille sandals (measurement 8.5)
Madewell The Addie High-Heel Mule (also at Nordstrom; measurement 7.5) // I stored each pairs of footwear that came on this trunk. I’m loving the bombé straps on these mules, and the two 1/2″ block heel provides you a pleasant carry while nonetheless being tremendous walkable. The tan colour is a superb neutral, they usually additionally are available a multi-color type.
These footwear are nice for slender ft — most mules are too massive for me, but these are good. Chances are you’ll need to measurement down half; I sometimes wear a measurement 8 in sandals, however typically a 7.5 in slides, and these are the 7.5.
Seychelles Mint Situation Slide Sandals (measurement 8) // These are incredibly snug, the straps are a suuuuuper mushy leather-based. I really like the asymmetrical styling and I just assume they’re enjoyable and totally different. I did keep on with my typical 8 in these, so I’d say they run TTS.
also sporting: Mother Looker ankle skinny jeans (measurement 29) with J.Crew tie entrance tank prime (measurement S) and CORE life hooded open-front cardigan (measurement S)
GOOD AMERICAN Good Curve Straight Leg Jeans (measurement 6) // Okay, I’m just not fairly positive what to say about these. To begin with, it’s arduous to photograph black jeans. I attempted to lighten up the shadows so you’ll be able to see the small print, but that makes the seams look odd.
I like how these fit, however I don’t assume they’re flattering on me… if that makes any sense. They appear more like a kick flare than a straight leg on me, and I feel they’re additionally just a little too long… or too brief, relying on what you’re going for. This 29″ inseam simply doesn’t work for me in a straight or flare jean, though.
also sporting: Madewell Whisper Cotton Crewneck Muscle Tank (medium) with Tory Burch Ines Slides (measurement eight)
I tried them on with another prime and shoe combo, simply to see if I like them any higher… and I don’t. This still is probably not a very good prime and shoe combo, but if I’ve to work this difficult to figure out find out how to put on them, I’d fairly move.

For measurement reference, I’m sporting a small, nevertheless it’s a bit of comfortable by means of the chest space. I’d advocate sizing up to permit for shrinkage, particularly if in case you have a larger chest.

I sized up to a medium because the ribbed materials makes it just a little extra clingy than a few of my other tops, however I might get away with the small, so I’ll say it’s TTS. The neckline and sleeves are tremendous flattering.
additionally sporting: Paige Verdugo ankle skinnies (measurement 30) with Sam Edelman Regis slides (measurement 7.5)

Boden Polly Jersey Midi Gown (measurement 8R) // I’ve this gown within the floral print, and I favored the match however not so much the print, so I ordered it again in the black.
There’s something concerning the neckline/chest/sleeves of this black one that I don’t love, and I’m unsure why I didn’t notice it within the print. I’m unsure if it’s that the print distracts from this concern, or it just matches in a different way.
It’s a very nice high quality gown, although, and flattering otherwise. I’d undoubtedly advocate making an attempt it in the event you prefer it.
Boden Cressida Jersey Gown in Ivory (measurement 8L) // I ordered the long length on this gown because I was afraid the common can be too brief on me, and I do like the extra length, but general it’s not very flattering on me. The pintucks and lace trim throughout the chest space draw undue consideration, and it bulges out over the stomach where the pleats are.
I feel this gown would look nice on a lady who is smaller on prime — particularly those with a pear form. It’s true to measurement for Boden; the eight is the suitable measurement. Additionally, it comes in navy as well as the ivory I’m sporting.
additionally sporting: Madewell The Addie High-Heel Mules (although I might not put on these footwear with this gown…)
Delphine Jersey Maxi Gown – Pink Pop Jungle Vine (measurement 8R) // Yes, one other Boden gown. I’m obsessed! I ordered all these throughout their 30% off gown sale, though none are on sale in the mean time, sadly.
This gown is so fairly, and I really like the print. It also comes in three other colors/prints, if that is too daring on your liking. It’s TTS for Boden; the eight matches me perfectly.
Dolce Vita Noor Sandals (measurement eight) // Love, love, LOVE these sandals. They’re so snug, and I feel the stitching alongside the footbed is such a fun detail. The leather strap throughout the foot is smooth and cozy as properly.
They’re fairly high, though — they have a four″ heel with a three/four″ platform, so that’s like walking in a 3 1/four″ heel. Undoubtedly wearable for many people, but in case you have a hard time with heels, these aren’t for you.
Boden Frill Jersey Tank – Pink Pop (measurement eight) // This prime doesn’t flatter me, but I feel it might look good on somebody — once more, in all probability a lady who’s smaller on prime. It also is sort of boxy and long, so take that into consideration.
I actually like the small print and quality of cloth — the bobble detailing and ruffle neck could be very fairly. It is available in different colours too.

Ann Taylor Eyelet Ruffle Doubleweave Sheath Gown // I had high hopes for this gown, as I sometimes love a sheath and Ann Taylor does such a great quality gown, however this one misses the mark. It’s reduce too straight the waist area, and the armholes are too huge and present my bra, which is a serious pet peeve — especially in a basic fashion like this. I’m positive it will be cute on somebody, but I’m unsure who to advocate it to.
For measurement reference, I ordered each the 6 and the eight, and I’m sporting the 8 within the prime picture and the 6 within the backside one. The 6 was a greater match, so I’d say it’s TTS or measurement down if in between.
Ann Taylor Floral Tie Front Midi Gown (measurement 6) // I used to be considering of sporting this gown to a wedding I’ve next weekend. It’s actually fairly on, and I really like the navy and marigold combo. Plus it seems to be nice with yellow footwear, although I’m unsure I’d put on these mules for the wedding.

additionally sporting: Madewell The Addie High-Heel Mules (measurement 7.5)
Try Ons: J.Crew Manufacturing unit
J.Crew Manufacturing unit V-neck button-front gown (measurement eight) // Cute gown, however pulls across the chest and gapes within the armholes. But once more, this is able to look better on somebody smaller on prime.
You’ll be able to see why I not often wear clothes. It will get frustrating to seek out so many cute ones that just don’t match my chest. Sizing up after which having the whole gown altered is an choice, however I’m not prepared to go to the difficulty and expense until it’s one thing I really like and plan to own for years.
I don’t actually need any new clothes right now — I have enough that do match properly, and I simply don’t put on them that always, so these are all going again.

I’m sporting the small, however I do marvel if shrinkage will probably be a problem when it’s washed. I discover that tie-front tops look greatest once they’re barely comfortable, or they have a tendency to bulge over the stomach space, so I stored the small, but I’m going to scrub it before I order any more. I’ll maintain you posted.
