Alrighty, friends! I just went through pictures as far back as February to round up this Try-On Haul, so it is quite the mish-mosh! I just got finished finding and editing all my pictures and finding the links to all of these items, and it’s already 8AM, so I’m going to whip through these pretty quickly. If I miss anything, I’m happy to clarify in the comments.
SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and 135 pounds, with an hourglass shape. Unless I say otherwise, I’m wearing a 6/28 in pants/jeans, a small in tops, a 6 in dresses/jumpsuits, and size 8 shoe.
Spring Try-On Haul: Fashion Over 40
Let’s start off with this Mixed Print Dress from White House Black Market. They’re doing 30% off select styles, and this dress is on sale for $105, down from $150.
I think the mix of patterns is really fun, and the flouncy style is different for me! It’s rather low-cut on me, but it would be fine for those who aren’t quite as “blessed” up top. It runs true to size; I’m in the 6.
I think they’re really fun and different, and they’re comfortable too. They run true to size, or you may want to size up if in between. I’m wearing my usual size 8.
This Caslon Ribbon Henley Shirt is kind of nice for those of us living in areas of the country where spring is slow to come… or in our case, virtually non-existent. I especially like the white with denim, but it comes in few other colors as well.
It’s pretty long and has an exaggerated shirttail hem, so I will probably wear it with a front-tuck, like this.
My friend Kelly made these earrings; you can get a pair through her Etsy shop. I’m also wearing the Treasure & Bond Fatima slides from Wednesday’s post and the Mother Insiders in Dancing On Coals, which are at Saks for $50 off with code ADORE21SF.
Speaking of the Mother Insiders, if you don’t care for the distressing on mine, I ordered two other washes to show you. The Mother Insider in Hey Sun is $50 off at Saks with code ADORE21SF.
This Frame stripe tee is spendy, but the quality if fantastic, and it’s a classic. I got it for 25% off during the Friends & Family Sale, but it also qualifies for the current Saks promotion. I actually returned it but now I’m wishing I hadn’t, lol!
The Mother Insider in Sweet and Sassy is $50 off at Neimans with code INC50. It’s a slightly darker wash than the Hey Sun (above), which I think I like even better.
It’s $50 off a $200 purchase, so if you want both items, you would want to place two separate orders.
This LOFT Relaxed V-Neck Cardigan is nice for spring to throw on over tees and tanks with jeans, or you could wear it to a casual office over a blouse with pants. It’s 50% off today, and it comes in other colors. This is the small.
I get a lot of questions about these Miller Cloud sandals, and I like them, but they are kind of boat like.
This Old Navy Luxe V-Neck Tee is low inventory, but there are a lot of other solid colors available. It’s very soft and comfy — just a good classic v-neck tee, and it’s 20% Off with Code SWEET.
And these Marc Fisher Reanna Slide Sandals are 30% off at Nordstrom. There are a few other colors, but I was drawn to the white.
Everlane sent me a few things to try out. This is The Chore Jacket, and it’s 60% off, but sizes are limited. It’s really cute on, very on trend, and since spring still seems a ways off, I’ll actually get a chance to wear it a few times before I put it away for fall. (It’s TTS; I’m wearing the small.)
And this Everlane The Cotton–Merino Polo is kind of fun, but it’s totally see-through. #thingsthatmakeyougohmmm…
The polo neck sweater is supposed to be a big trend right now, and I do like it. I guess I could wear a cami underneath. It’s also TTS; I’m wearing the small.
Okay! Let’s move on to some shorts! I took a bunch of these pictures before our Florida trip, so pardon my lily-white legs.
These Madewell Relaxed Denim Shorts in Clintonville Wash: Split-Hem Edition are my least favorite, but they aren’t terrible. I just like the others I tried better. They’re TTS; I’m in the 28.
And really, they don’t look too bad in the pictures. I think they felt stiff or something. Also, the rear pockets are HUGE.
I finally ordered the AGOLDE Parker Shorts after seeing everyone I know rave about how wonderful they are. I was sure I’d feel like they’re too short and too distressed… I kind of thought I was over this look, but well, I guess I’m not!
They really are a great fit, as long as you don’t mind a 3″ inseam, and they run true to size; I have the 28.
For a lower priced option, I also really like the KUT from the Kloth Jane Shorts. They have a similar vibe, and the measurements are almost exactly the same.
I’m also wearing the Everlane Air scoop neck tee, and this is a really good basic. It also comes in white, grey, and yellow. I have the size small.
I’m sorry to tell you these Wit & Wisdom Ab-Solution distressed high waist shorts are low inventory because I like them a lot, and they have a slightly longer inseam than the ones above.
If you can find your size, they’re really soft and comfortable. I often have to size down in Wit & Wisdom jeans, but not in these shorts; these are my usual 6.
These Paige Mayslie Joggers won’t be new to you regulars, but I had to give mine away when I lost weight last spring. I grabbed a pair in my current size when I saw them go on sale at Shopbop, and right now they’re part of the Saks sale — since they’re $209, they qualify for the $50 off without any other purchase.
I recommend sizing down in these. They run a little big, and they do stretch out some with wear. That said, they hold up great (I hang to dry) and they’re a really fun alternative to jeans. I’m wearing the 27.
These Wit & Wisdom Ab-Solution high waist ankle skinny pants would make a nice work wear piece for teachers or casual office environments.
While they have a skinny fit, the leg opening is a big wider than some, giving them a more modern vibe. I size down in these, as I typically do in this brand. They’re snug but I know they’ll stretch out some.
And these Wit & Wisdom Ab-Solution high waist ankle straight leg jeans are really good! I like the way they fit close through the leg, but still have a straight silhouette, and the wash is really good too.
These are stretchy and soft, and they have that Ab-Solution waistband to help keep your waistline smooth.
And that, my friends, is a wrap! If you have any questions about fit or sizing, I’m happy to answer in the comments.
