I’m not sure if it’s the warm weather we are finally getting or the fact that I’ve lost a bit more of the baby weight, but having some fresh new clothes for summer is on my mind!
I placed a few online orders and have had a few things work out (and a slew of things I’ve sent back–which I won’t be showing you because they were no bueno 😉 ). It’s nice to get out of leggings and put on ‘real clothes’, even just a couple times a week, to go for a car ride or enjoy a drink on the back deck.
As always, everything I’m sharing is linked below each photo with sizing notes and I’m also sharing everything you see here today on Instastories, so hop over there to see it in motion.
Let’s jump in!
I’m swooning over this new white tee, and it’s under $16! I just snagged it and it’s fully in stock so runnnnnn. It has such a unique cut to it and a boxy fit. I sized up to an XL for a roomier fit.
These shorts are something I purchased over three months ago when we were headed to Florida (pre-quarantine) and I had no summer clothes that fit postpartum. I went up two sizes which was perfect–but they are also very stretchy and comfortable. I love that the inseam is a little longer as it’s very flattering on the inner thigh. I’m wearing a size 13 (pre-pregnancy I would have been a 9, and now an 11 probably would have been fine).
These marble slides were just restocked and are on sale under $10! I love these and constantly throw them on to run out the door. They are really comfortable and look way more expensive than they actually are. Will be so cute pool-side as well.
These shorts are so good! I sized up two sizes from pre-pregnancy (like the blue denim and black pairs I already owned) but I could have just done one size. I had purchased the other two pairs three months ago when I was only two months postpartum. They are really stretchy, high waist and have a slightly longer inseam, which I love (so flattering!). I’m wearing a size 13 (pre-pregnancy I would have been a 9, and now an 11 probably would have been fine).
Looks like this tee has sold out–ugh! I’m so sorry. Linking up some similar styles that I like just as much, all under $10! I’m wearing an XL for an oversized fit.
Also want to note that Urban Planet has two options for shipping–regular and next day delivery, both at $5.99. When I placed my order, I chose next day delivery and it actually arrived the next day! With the delivery delays lately, I was shocked and so pleasantly surprised.
Swimsuit season! I definitely am not feeling swimsuit ready post baby but most of my swimsuits don’t really fit me right now so I ordered a few in larger sizes in case the opportunity arises this summer.
That said, this cover-up on the other hand–I’m definitely feeling ready to sport this! I paired it with the same high-waist white denim shorts as above for an alternate option to just over a swimsuit. I’m wearring a size small/medium and it’s super roomy.
This green suit is really pretty in person and fits true to size. I went with an 8 in the top and a 10 in the bottom (12 would have be better, TBH). There is removable padding in the top but not a ton of support.
Also, these sunglasses! I’m obsessed. These are a super budget friendly find that I ordered at the beginning of May–they took over a month to arrive, but it was worth the wait since they are under $20 and so chic. I feel like these are popping up on a ton of faces this year too (which I hadn’t seen when I ordered mine–clearly we were all waiting on shipping 😉 )–so very on trend.
Dressing this skirt up and down. Not sure where I’m going in these heels, but, ya know, when the time comes to leave the house, I’ll be ready! 😛
Wearing a large in the skirt.
I snagged this distressed denim jacket in Florida a few months ago after looking for one–this one is really similar though and a great price. I love the oversized fit & just snagged this mini version for Hendrix to wear this fall!
These are the same denim shorts as the white and blue pairs above, but in black. Again, love these and the good stretch they have. They are distressed on the front and fit so well. I love that the inseam is a little longer which is really flattering on the inner thigh. I’m wearing a size 13 (pre-pregnancy I would have been a 9, and now an 11 probably would have been fine).
I love the look of anything cropped–and this sweatshirt is so cute (plus on sale!). I went with a medium which is a good fit, but do note that it’s on the shorter cropped side–so sizing up might yield slightly more length. It is a boxy fit, and fleece on the inside.
I just paired the sweatshirt with a stretchy skirt (which is actually maternity, but doesn’t have a panel or anything, it’s just got good stretch). This sweatshirt would also be so good with high-waist leggings or even over a bodycon dress (also love this one) to get the same effect.
