Greetings, friends, it’s the first day of August, if you can believe it!
I’ve got a short try-on haul for you today, plus I rounded up some things I’ve worn lately that are on sale, and some Evereve Clearance sale picks.
First, I ordered a few summer pieces that I’ll show you.
Summer Try-On Haul
I ordered these shorts because I realized I don’t have any grey or black denim shorts. I love my grey and black jeans, so I know I’ll enjoy having that option for shorts as well.
Plus, I thought they would look great with my new P448 sneaks, and they do!
These shorts were on sale when I got them, but unfortunately, not now.
I really like this off-black wash and the cuffed hem. The rise is higher than I prefer, at 12″, but it’s not a deal breaker.
The deal breaker is the rear view. The fit and pocket placement are okay, but they are a leeeetle short on me…
I think I’m getting too old for the 3″ inseam. (It says 4″ online but I think that is the un-cuffed measurement.)
I love how the off-black wash looks with this pink tie dye top.
(Pardon the laundry in the background… my daughter likes to use the banister as a drying rack.)
VERDICT: Returning. I do really like them, but I think I’ll keep looking for a pair that gives me another inch or so in length, and preferably something closer to a 10″ rise.
I ordered these sandals after seeing another blogger rave about them. They’re supposed to be very comfortable and supportive, and I thought the colors were so nice and versatile.
I’m getting tired of wearing flats all the time, and I thought maybe these would be comfortable enough for casual wear.
I was thrilled by how soft and supple the leather is. They feel wonderful against the foot. They also have a leather lined, padded footbed.
The back strap is adjustable, but unfortunately they are still a little big on my foot. I think they would fit someone with thicker or wider feet better.
These are GORGEOUS shoes. Such good quality, and on sale too!
They run true to size, but they are a little roomy on my feet so I recommend them to those with wider feet.
VERDICT: Returning, but I do recommend them. They’re just not great for me.
I don’t know why I ordered these shorts. I mean, I do. I kept seeing another blogger I follow talk about them, and they look so cute on her 32-year-old self. But on me, they feel a little try-hard.
See? Even bloggers fall into this trap!
I’m just showing you all the views with little commentary because I think the pictures speak for themselves.
I will say, the denim is very soft and comfortable. If you like them, I recommend sizing up. I’m in the 29, and they’re a little roomy, but I think they’re supposed to be.
VERDICT: Returning. They’re just not for me at this point in my life. But they’re comfortable and good quality. If you like them, they’re worth a try!
I ordered this tee when it was on sale, but it’s not now.
Frame makes such a nice quality tee. I know the price seems crazy for a t-shirt, but the material is gorgeous. It’s really a nice elevated tee to have in your closet, and it layers nicely too.
I really like the shape of the scoop neck and the sleeves.
FYI, I’m in the medium, and it’s none too big. I definitely recommend sizing up one from your normal.
VERDICT: Keeping. It’s hard to find a nice quality tee that fits this perfectly, and I did manage to snag this one at 40% off. I’ll let you know if I see it on sale again.
I’ve shared this dress already, but I wanted to show you more angles for those who asked about the armholes.
As you can see here, the armholes are cut a little big, but it doesn’t gape or show my bra.
Here’s a back view. I like how it has the swing dress style, but there’s still good shaping through the waist.
Such a cute, carefree dress. The material is smooth and soft, and while it’s thin, it’s not see-through. It runs true to size, and it’s a great price.
VERDICT: Keeping! I’ve already worn it twice.
Okay, that’s it for try-ons, but I do have a few things that I noticed just went on sale.
Weekend Sale Picks
R’s Madewell swing dress wasn’t a great fit for me, but it’s adorable on her. It’s marked down to $39.99 and then 30% off with code WHATADEAL.
For comparison, here is how it looked on me. A little too short, tight in the chest, and not as much shape through the waist as the Daily Ritual one.
It’s such a pretty color, but the fit was just a bit off. I like it a lot better on R.
I have the mules in both caramel and cream.
These are such a nice, soft leather, and they feel really nice on the foot. I recommend sizing up at least a half size; I have the 8.5.
I have the loafers in cashew, but I like the caramel better. I think I’d wear them more in a different color.
They also run small; I have the 8.5 in these too.
The floral Sanctuary blouse that I like so much is finally on sale! I love to pair this with white jeans for church and date nights.
It runs TTS; I have the small.
And the Chelsea28 raw edge tank I’ve worn so much lately is also on sale now.
I also have the ivory; it makes a really nice layering piece. This tank runs TTS; I have the small.
Sizes are getting depleted on this one, but if you don’t mind spaghetti straps, this one is a good alternative.
The Kut from the Kloth Lauren jeans in the darker wash are 40% off. These are TTS, or size down if in between.
Incidentally, this is the Chelsea28 tank in a deep red. Yes, I have it in 3 colors. It is that good!
And then the Kut from the Kloth Catherine boyfriend shorts are on sale for $39 at Evereve.
Also, this stripe sweater finally went on sale! It’s very lightweight, and yes, a little bit see-through — the perfect beachy summer sweater to pair with shorts on mild evenings at home or, well, the beach!
And those toe ring sandals are on sale too!
Evereve Sale Picks
I love this tie dye wrap. It could carry you right into fall.
How cute is this white eyelet ballet top?
These wedge sneakers are really cute and such an amazing price.
I’m tempted to try this jumpsuit. I like the jogger style.
This halter top is adorable. I hate strapless bras, but I might make the exception for this top.
Okay, last thing, but there’s so much good in here, so be sure to take a look through if you’re shopping this weekend.
Y’all know how I love python print. I think I need this tee.
Okay, that’s a wrap. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
