ONE: Camo Jacket
First, I shared this outfit on Instagram yesterday but I have to add here that this particular item is easily my favorite Memorial Day Sale purchase. The fit, fabric, print...everything is just right and I know this jacket will get a ton of use. Thanks again to Erin for enabling this purchase!

TWO: Olive Bomber Jacket
Review: I really liked this type of jacket on Skye (see her outfits here and here) and I liked the color, but everything else on this was a miss for me. The fit was too bulky and puffy. The product description says it has an "extra light feel," and I don't agree with that. It's a medium-weight jacket, not a throw-on-in-summer-for-A/C weight. The fabric felt also felt like vinyl, and I was hoping for a more soft, silky feel. Also, when compared side-by-side on me with the camo jacket, the camo jacket was more flattering in my opinion so it easily won out.
THREE: Off the Shoulder Top
Review: This top was so cute and exactly what I wanted in terms of look and fit. Sadly, I didn't keep it and I've decided I'm not going to purchase any more off the shoulder tops because they are just not for me. I don't like how restricted it makes my arms feel and I don't like how easily the shoulders ride up. If you don't mind all that then I would definitely recommend this top! And for what it's worth, the color name is Ivory, but online I thought it looked fairly white so I wasn't sure what to expect. In person I think it's a true Ivory despite how it looks in both my picture and the stock photo.
FOUR: Sleek Wedge Sandal
Review: You may have seen me wear these on Instagram or Snapchat, but I wanted to give a proper warning about them. When I wear something in an outfit I feel like I'm vouching for it, and after wearing these a few times you should know these are not especially comfortable. They are exactly what I wanted in terms of looks and they were actually great for a surprise party I attended where I was mostly sitting or standing. But when it comes to walking...not great. I made a Target trip in them and that's about the max amount of walking I would want to do. (And even then, I was glad I could hold on to the cart !) I may look for a similar pair with a lower heel (these have a 4" heel) to use for every day wear and save these for minimal-walking events.

It's nice when an item is an easy keep/return decisions like most of these! I'm still on the fence about a couple of other items I ordered, like the cognac wedge sandals from this post...I'm worried about having the same comfort issues as the black sleek sandals since they are the same heel height. But I decided not to post them here so that I wouldn't be too swayed by public opinion one way or another! It's one thing for an item to look good on a blog/Instagram post, another thing for it to work in real life, and obviously I'm still prone to mistakes on that one!
