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).
|H&M Knit Sweater – wearing size XS (buy, similar)|
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.
