Everyday Outfits + Weekend Sales 3/31/18

|
Happy Saturday friends! This week felt pretty hectic since I crammed in five doctor/dentist appointments (between myself and the kids) into four days, then threw an oil change and haircuts for the kids in there too. Thank goodness Spring Break is almost here because I am ready for a change of pace! Here are a few of the outfits I wore this week for all of the appointments and errands. Despite the fact that we're having some really nice Spring weather here, my outfits are didn't really say Spring. Oh well! If anything they should say, "I'm just trying to get places on time and look respectable!"

Outfit Recap:

Red Henley, Black Cardigan:

This red henley top runs pretty small. I'm wearing a Small and it fits more like an XS. I probably could have gone up two sizes in this. For more size options try this Similar Red Henley with more sizes. These jeans are my favorite pair from Express this past year and they're included in the 40% off Easter weekend sale. I wore them a lot this Fall and Winter, but I am pretty sure I can make them work for Spring by pairing them with some lighter colors and different shoes, too. They're true to size, by the way. I take the Short length and I'm 5'4". They also run narrower through the ankle than many of my Express jeans, which is something that has come up with a few people offline.

More Coverage Top Option:

Because the henley top above has a pretty deep V-neck and is very fitted, I opted to change into something a little more conservative when I had to stop into school for a project. It was also warming up in the afternoon so I ditched the cardigan and changed shoes. I thought I'd share this since too since it may be more suited to other people's coverage needs as well.

Camel Jacket, Gray Tee:

This moto jacket runs just a bit smaller- I'm wearing a Small here and typically wear an XS in Express jackets. That said, it's a great lightweight jacket for any season and very affordable. For a U.S. retailer option with more sizes try this Similar Jacket from H&M. These Black Jeans from Abercrombie are favorites too, and they're on sale for under $40 this weekend. I took my normal size and Short Length again.

Charcoal Cardigan, Black Lace Cami:
Cardigan (c/o) | Lace Trim Cami (50% off) | Jeans (Under $40) | Similar Wedge Pumps 

This cardigan is the third piece I've kept from this line, and it reminds me a lot of the Express One Eleven Collection. I've tried a few more pieces that I didn't keep either due to fit or redundancy in my wardrobe, but all of them are made of really soft, comfortable fabrics. I'm wearing the Small/Medium in this cardigan and I think it fits true to size or comparable to a Small cardigan from Express. If you normally wear a Medium it will be a tough call between the Small/Med or Med/Large size and I would say decide how fitted you want this to be and go from there. More relaxed fit = bigger sizes. More fitted/tailored = Smaller size. This lace trim cami is another favorite that's on sale for 50% off this weekend. It's true to size (I'm wearing an XS), and it has adjustable straps which is such a great, useful feature for any cami to have.

Weekend Sales:
Nearly every major retailer is having a big sale this weekend, but I try not to browse all of them otherwise I end up wanting something from all of them! Here are a few I will be checking out:

EXPRESS: Storewide 40% off. I shared three ways to wear my favorite purple cardigan in this post. For a round-up of some of my favorite jeans at Express, go here.

ABERCROMBIE: Storewide 50% off. The lace trim cami and Black Jeans pictured above this post are both current favorites. I've been waiting for a sale to get the lace trim cami in pink so this might be just the right time!

TARGET: BOGO 50% off Shoes. I've been wearing these perforated ankle boots a lot this Spring (e.g. this post) but I ended up ordering a few other pairs to try during this sale since I felt like my Spring shoe collection was lacking. I may have gone slightly overboard in de-cluttering my shoes during last year...lesson learned!
One | Two | Three | Four

Have a great weekend and a wonderful holiday if you're celebrating tomorrow!

  2. You are in for a much needed rest after all of that running around. I have to give your props for looking pulled together for all of it too! I especially love the camel and gray combo outfit, it looks great together!
