Old Navy Printed Cuffed Shorts, Blueberry Smoothie, Sz 2, $19 (buy here)
Aren't these blue gingham shorts adorable? I think these are a new-ish arrival because they weren't marked on sale and seemingly very popular because there were only 3 left in my store. The waist runs big (sits at hips) in these shorts so I had to size down.
Verdict: Undecided. Print is adorable but it's a little too short for me (indicated by the visibility of my running shorts tan line).
Old Navy Plain Front Capris, Raspberry Punch, Sz 4, $28, (buy here)
I've been looking for slim-fitting fuchsia pants (Jean & Cee make them look so good!) and this pair comes so close to being perfect! The color, length and slim leg fit were exactly what I was looking for. The only negative? It seemed to enhance my pear-shape with a wider cut at the hips.
Verdict: No for now, but may consider on further sale
Ann Taylor Minimal Strokes Print Pencil Skirt, Sz 2, (buy here)
Such a cute print! Fits well and sits just above the hips. This wasn't on sale so was a bit pricey at $88.
Verdict: No, too expensive and a little too short for my taste
Ann Taylor Striped Diagonal Seamed Dress, SP, (buy here)
I saw the stripes and I had to try it on. I should have known better though. My body type just does not look right in dresses like these - I look like one stripe-y rectangle. I loved the all the different aligned stripes though!
Verdict: No, not for my body type
Ann Taylor Compact Double Weave Cropped Jacket, Sz 0 (buy here)
I'm still looking for a white blazer of some sort. This fit well in the shoulders, chest, and arms but the torso was so boxy. Overall, gave me a matronly look that I'm not quite ready to indulge in.
Banana Republic Blue / Cream Enamel Necklace, $18 (no longer see online)
I love all things striped so imagine my elation when I spied this "striped" necklace :)
Verdict: Yes, yes, yes
