    Perfect Floral Petite Jumpsuit from Loft

     

    As a petite person, it can be really hard to find the perfect fitting jumpsuit. Thankfully, Loft has a great range of petite clothing with jumpsuits that even fit my 4’9″ frame! I have found myself browsing loft a lot lately… as I’m sure a lot of you can relate! This jumpsuit was definitely an impulse purchase but it was on sale a few weeks ago for $30! And it’s still on sale!  

    I am really trying not to buy much during this quarantine, especially fast fashion. Especially because it’s rare that I wear real clothing these days… I’ve been living in workout clothes and sweats! But to be honest, I miss thrifting and quick trips to Target. So I’ve turned to browse Thredup and getting sucked into sales from Loft. Oops! But I’m also not going to be too hard on myself right now. I realized I misplaced my favorite black jumpsuit from Old Navy so I’ve been looking for the perfect petite jumpsuit and this one fit the bill! It’s a fun pattern and so comfortable. I actually never featured that one on the blog but the last jumpsuit I featured a children’s one from Target so I was really happy to find this one!

    Can we take a moment to appreciate the little bow in the back? SO. CUTE. But I’m not going to lie, it is definitely a bit difficult to tie. But I just love the little details of this jumpsuit. The flutter sleeves and tie at the back give it a little something extra than just a plain jumpsuit. I was also happy to find one with short sleeves instead of spaghetti straps.

    When it’s safe to travel again, I think this jumpsuit will be the perfect thing to throw in my suitcase! It doesn’t wrinkle very much when it’s folded and it’s lightweight. It’s also machine washable (and doesn’t shrink when washed!) so this jumpsuit definitely hits everything I was looking for in a petite jumpsuit!

     I think I’ve featured my sandals a few times but they are from Payless. I thought Payless was gone forever but apparently you can buy them on Amazon now?? They don’t have the brands I used to love on there yet but maybe they’ll add more styles. That is definitely a fast fashion store I miss! As someone with incredibly small feet, I thought it was a great option for finding cute, trendy, and small shoes! Anyone else with me?

    Cozy and Cute Work from Home Outfit

    Hi Friends! How are you handling Quarantine? I’m currently on week 6 so it’s pretty safe to say all the days are blending together. I am luckily able to work still but when I can’t leave my house I’m finding it much harder to switch off from working from home! But I’m also finding it a lot harder to get things done in the first place… How are you all holding up??

    Today I wanted to share an outfit I wore last week that is so cozy but also comfortable! I’m not going to lie, I have been mostly wearing sweatpants or workout clothes but that’s where these fun J.Crew pants come in! They are basically a thin jogger but in the cutest floral print. I thrifted them last year and they have become a work from home staple the past few weeks, that is for sure!

    I also wanted to pair them with a comfy top so I went with a thin long sleeve from Athleta (thrifted, of course!). I’ve gotten a lot more use out of this pink long sleeve than I thought I would, especially one that I only paid $1 for! But it’s cozy and thin so it’s not too warm. But it has been fairly chilly the past few weeks so I threw on a sweater I got from Loft last year.

    And of course, I had to show off my slippers! Because who is wearing real shoes right now? I definitely am not unless I go outside for a walk. I picked these up at Ross back in January and I wear them pretty much every day! They’re so comfortable. and I’ve seen a lot of stores are selling comfy slippers like this on major sale right now.

    Anyways, I just wanted to pop on here and say hello and hope everyone is surviving this weird time!

    Kinder Beauty Box Review

    Hello, friends! I took a very long hiatus from blogging but with everyone staying home, I thought I’d come back. I missed blogging. Today I wanted to share a review of the Kinder Beauty Box! I’ve done similar reviews of beauty boxes before but I am very excited to review the Kinder Beauty Box. I’ll be giving some pros/cons of the box as well as an overview of the last box I received.

    Pros of Kinder Beauty Box

    1. 1. Obviously, the biggest plus is they select all-natural and cruelty-free products! I’ve mentioned it in the past that I tried to go completely cruelty-free in the past but there are a few products I just haven’t been able to find replacements for… (here’s look at you Keihls creating the only daily cleanser that worked for me (until now!!).
    2. Customer Services are amazing! With all of the COVID-19 stuff happening, I was worried I wouldn’t get my last box at my apartment. They had already shipped it out but then they sent another box to my parents’ house (the alternate address I gave them) in case I couldn’t get the one they already shipped! I was so surprised by how accommodating and nice they are to work with! (I mean, I shouldn’t be but still).
    3. You receive a lot of full-sized items! While the cost is a little more than say, Birchbox (25$ vs $15) you get a lot of bang for your buck! Sometimes I feel like other beauty boxes

    Cons of Kinder Beauty

    1. I don’t have many cons but one is that you can’t customize the box or your preferences. I totally understand why not – they’re a small company! So while there has been maybe one item in the last two boxes I didn’t think I’d use, I am happy to support a small business with a great mission!
    2. One other feature I wish they had was the ability to shop items in your box directly from their site and the ability to see what was in previous boxes. I sometimes forget what the products were in previous boxes before I have the chance to purchase them so I would love to see previous boxes and what was inside of them!

    Kinder Beauty Box April Review

    Do Over Cleanser by Willing Beauty

    I mentioned earlier that I’ve had trouble finding a cruelty free replacement for my beloved Kiehl’s cleanser but this cleanser might be it! It is pretty thick but I don’t find it drying at all and cleanses my face perfectly! Apparently you can use it to remove make-up but I haven’t tried that yet. It is a bit pricey at $18 for 3.5 oz but worth it in my opinion if you’re looking for a great clean & cruelty-free cleanser!

    Green Resist Anti-Aging Mask by ESW Beauty

    This was a really nice face mask that left my skin glowing! I’m not really sure if it reduced lines on my face but it left my skin glowy and moisturized, which is really all I want from a sheet mask! I also noticed some acne went down significantly after using this mask, so that is always a plus!

    Eye Dust (Penny Wise) by Medusa’s Make-up

    This is a loose pigment eye shadow in a bright beautiful orange bronze-y shimmer. I’m not going to lie, loose pigments aren’t my favorite thing ever because they are so. messy. But this product was a really beautiful color so I can definitely see myself using it if I want a lot of shimmer one day.

     

    Dew + Renew Face Mist from Glaminizers

    I love a good face mist and this one did not disappoint! It disperses evenly and lightly and has the most refreshing scent of lavender. I was also impressed because it comes in a glass bottle and it didn’t shatter in my package! Apparently you can use this as a setting spray but I haven’t put makeup on in a month so I haven’t tried that out yet!

    Beauty Oil Blend: Rosehip by OPAGEE

    This oil came at the perfect time for me! I was almost out of my Trader Joes Rosehip Facial oil so I was pleasantly surprised to basically receive a replacement but with a lovely cruelty-free and clean product! This product is really nice, lightweight, and didn’t break me out! It’s also really calming due to the rosehip. Overall, I really enjoy this product!

     

     

    Overall, I am really impressed with Kinder Beauty Boxes! I would definitely recommend them if you’re looking to try some beauty brands you haven’t before, especially in the cruelty-free and clean beauty world!

    The Perfect Outfit for Spring

    Lee Standing wearing pink shirt and jeans

    I’m not going to lie. I didn’t wear this outfit out of the house when I wore it last week. But I do think it will be the perfect outfit for spring! Right now I’m in Arkansas bundled in a ton of layers but what can I say? I’m ready for some sunshine!

    The jeans are the standout. I have been looking for the perfect pair of button-fly jeans for what feels like forever! I have tried on so many pairs and eventually decide they aren’t worth the money or I didn’t like the fit. I actually tried on this same pair in Madewell maybe a year ago. They were on sale for $70, which I ultimately decided was too much money for a pair of jeans. But then… I found the exact pair on Thredup!

    I have always been a little hesitant buying on Thredup because they don’t have many photos of the items and I never know if they will fit correctly. But I knew these were the jeans I had tried on when I saw them! They have just the slightest bit of distressing at the hem and a “demi boot” style. I wasn’t sure if I could pull them off but I really like the cut! But I will say, as much I love how a button fly looks, they are not the most practical! But I guess that’s what we do for fashion, right? I’ve been wearing them a lot since I got them a few weeks ago but they really are the perfect spring outfit staple!

    I actually picked up my top while I was in Florence at Zara (ugh, I hate I even said that…). But Florence really didn’t have any secondhand stores and I needed another short sleeve top. This one is really soft and almost like a fuzzy sweater material! It hasn’t worn the best but I might try and use my sweater shave on it.

    My shoes are actually from Ross! I’ve mentioned it on the blog before but I’ve been stopping at Ross a lot more lately. They have a really great shoe selection! I actually found my exact pair of running shoes there for $30!! I couldn’t believe it. But these shoes were originally from the Loft (another one of my favorite stores when I’m not thrifting…). I didn’t even know Ross had the Loft! But these shoes were only $12 so I had to snag them. They had a very small heel so they look great with almost anything.

    Are you ready for Spring?

    My Most Worn Outfit of 2019

    Lee standing inside wearing striped shirt and red skirt, most worn outfit of 2019

    I don’t know how I haven’t featured this outfit on the blog in the last year, but I have worn some kind striped shirt + red skirt combo so. many. times. in 2019! This is the one outfit I can’t stop wearing. It was definitely my most worn outfit combination in 2019. Whether it was a short sleeve striped shirt or a long sleeve with tights, this outfit has been on rotation through all the seasons (at least since I picked up this red skirt!). I’m also happy to say that this entire outfit is secondhand! I’ve had this shirt for about a year and I don’t see myself giving it away any time soon. It is my favorite striped shirt! I love the bow detail.

    Back in March (I believe?) I won the Poshmark Love it or List It challenge and I got $100 to spend on Poshmark! I considered buying one very expensive item (like a Kate Spade bag) but then decided to pick up a bunch of pieces. I bought a few items from Madewell, Everlane, Topshop, places like that. This was a fun way for me to purchase things on Poshmark without the risk of losing money because they didn’t fit. Not a shocker, most of it didn’t fit. I ended up reselling a lot of things I bought but this red skirt was PERFECT. It is so comfortable and fits like a glove. I took it with me to Italy and I’m still not sick of it.

     

    What was your most worn outfit of 2019?
