Many of you requested that you were interested in haul posts, so here we go! I had the day off today in remembrance of MLK, so I took the rare opportunity today and did some brick-and-mortar shopping at the mall today. All purchases made at Northpark Mall, in case you’re local. 🙂
|Forever 21 Drawstring Utility Jacket – wearing size S (buy)|
My first stop was at Forever 21, where I found a cute utility jacket with removable zipper hood (the hood is definitely coming off). I love that it hits right above the hips so it doesn’t overwhelm a petite frame. The drawstring waist give it a nice bit of shape and the pockets were perfectly placed so as not to look awkward or bulky.
|Forever 21 Buffalo Plaid Sequined Shirt – wearing size S
(sold out online, similar – rhinestones look removable, similar)
The next item I found was this buffalo plaid sequined shirt. I apologize for the poor lighting in the photo as I actually took the picture late at night after I realized I didn’t snap a fitting room picture. Buffalo plaid has been a print that I’ve really grown fond of this season and I can imagine pairing this shirt with jeans, skirts, vests, and layered under just about everything!
I found this taupe chiffon dress and think it would be the perfect dress for both work and play once the weather gets a bit warmer. The front is a little bit low cut so for work I would consider layering a matching camisole underneath (I highly recommend Wacoal camis and the cappuccino color looks promising).
I’ve also been wanting to add some more casual sweaters to my wardrobe and this one really caught my eye. I love the waffle knit and the easy, casual drape. I can wear it slightly off the shoulder on weekends and normal for work. It would be perfect layered under scarves and even my fur snood!
|rag & bone Skinny Jeans in Kensington –
wearing size 24 (my typical size), hem rolled under about 3″ (buy)
My last stop was into Nordstrom as I was looking for a pair of black jeans. And while I tried on 5 differnet pairs black jeans with no luck, I did end up really loving these rag & bone skinny jeans! This was my first experience with this brand and I can definitely say that the fit is amazing. I have yet to see how it holds up for a full day of wear but I’m loving the slim stretchy fit and the fact that it makes my short legs a little less chunky.
I hope you enjoy my first haul post! If you want more live updates of my hauls, follow me on Instagram.
