Love it or Return it? Bobeau Fringe Detail Short Sleeve Top

I’m looking to add more shirts with texture and interest to my wardrobe. This shirt fit the bill, so I ordered both white and black.  

  
I liked both, which is odd, as I’m usually an all-black kind of girl. 

    

White was my favorite of the two and considering I only have 1 white shirt, that’s saying a lot. 

   

 Loved the fringe details. 

   

 The black was very nice, but the fringe detail didn’t stand out like on the white shirt. 

  
  

Unfortunately for me, both shirts were defects and had to be returned. The white shirt had a stain and the black shirt had part of the fringe missing. This is very odd for Nordstrom to send out products like this. By the time I received these shirt, both were out of stock and I couldn’t order replacements.  I’ll be keeping my eye out for a restock. 

VERDICT: Loved it! (But had to return it) 

My Favorite New Pants

I’m now onto my second pair of these amazing Ponte Pants. They are a hybrid of pant and legging, with full coverage. You can wear these with shorter shorts (rather than the tunic, legging uniform) and not feel like you’re showing the world your goods. 

  
  
Nordstrom recommended a size 11 in these junior pants, but 11’s stretched out 1-2 sizes larger as the day wore on. I’d recommend going down a size, despite the fact that these are junior sizing. There is so much stretch and give, and it happens an hour into wearing them. 

And they’re only $39, check them out here.

  

  

My Favorite (non-legging) Yoga Pants

(Disclosure: Affliate link)

I practice yoga multiple times a week and have a major opposition to yoga leggings. I don’t like tight clothing in general and definitely don’t like them while I’m exercising. Although most yogis like leggings, I don’t and I have finally found my beloved yoga pants! The Alo Revive Sweatpants are an investment, but so worth it. 

They are technically advertised as post yoga sweatpants, but I wear them for class and they are perfect. 

  
The waistband is wide and doesn’t pinch or dig. 

  

The only negative, is the “vintage wash” material….which includes piling. This is a thing now? Weird. I can overlook it, but I find it a strange approach. 

Is anyone else a tight workout clothing hater like me?

My Favorite Workout Tee

(Disclosure: Affliate link)

Although tanks seem to be the workout top of choice, I prefer a tee for ultimate comfort. The problem is finding a tee that isn’t too tight or too loose. I need a tee that’s fitted enough to practice yoga in (too loose and it will fall in your face during downward dog), but I despise the skin tight shirts out there. 

Enter the Zella Z 5 Tee. 271 near perfect reviews, just keep in mind that it runs small. Order up one size. 

  

Perfectly fitted with flattering ruching makes this my new favorite tee! It’s currently 40% and comes in multiple colors. 

Love it or Return it: Madewell Cheetah Dots Silk Top

(Disclosure: Affliate link)

 I’ve wanted to try out the Madewell brand for a long time. The style of this brand appeals to me and I fell in love with this Madewell Cheetah top instantly online.  (Currently out of stock, but Nordstrom items seem to flux in and out of stock on a regular basis). 

  
 
Perfect reviews. And I love the back. 

  
Sadly, this top did not flatter me at all. 

  
My bust creates a nice pregnant look. 

  

And some bat wings

  
This must look good on someone! The material and pattern were beautiful, I was so disappointed it didn’t work out. 

Love it or Return it? Hinge Lace Peplum Shirt

(Disclosure: Affliate links)

I don’t own a single peplum shirt, but always think they are very flattering when I see someone wearing one. I decided to order this Hinge Lace Peplum Shirt and it did not disappoint. 

Available in white and black and currently, all sizes. 

  
Nordstrom True Fit recommended a size Medium for me, and they were correct. 

   

I wearing just a basic cami underneath, otherwise this top is sheer and doesn’t come with a cami. I love this shirt! I have a short torso, so if you have a really long torso, keep that in mind when ordering. It might be shorter than you expect. 

Verdict: LOVE IT!

Also wearing my Wit & Wisdom stretch skinny jeans (which are like glorified leggings, so comfortable), my Sam Edlemen Felicia Flats and Fitbit.
