I am super stoked about this whole outfit I bought - Splendid shirt at Neiman Marcus Last Call, and white Joe's Jeans in honey skinny booty fit.
I've been looking for a pair of white skinny jeans forever! I had an Abercrombie pair, which I accidentally washed with other colors and they got dyed green lol. Ever since then, I had tried on many different brands/styles, and just didn't find the right pair. I even tried on 5 different pairs at the Joe's store and these were by far the best! I've actually had a pair of Joe's jeans in honey cut for years now, and I always found them to be super cute and comfy. I think this cut just really works for me. It's meant for a curvy figure, which I am not really. But what works works, I do not question it. =) I think the difference is that the back is higher and just makes your butt look better! They also don't slide down like lower rise jeans tend to do.
Another thing I really like about these jeans is that the bottom is not super tight fitting. They are like a skinny fit until below the calves, then they become more of a skinny straight leg cut. I think it looks more flattering that way.
These were $99 at the outlet. I would gladly pay that for different colors in the same style! These are the best skinny jeans I've ever tried on! I wore them all day today and they were amazingly comfy. Can't say enough good things about them.
So the back rise is higher than the front. I took these pictures before I took the tag off! As you can see, I got them in size 26. I usually wear size 26-27 depending on how the brands run. My other pair of Joe's jeans is size 26 as well, so I think this brand runs a little on the large side.
Here's the slightly looser ankle fit:
I also really love the Splendid shirt I got! I love this brand and I don't buy enough of it! I got it from Last Call, but they actually have a Splendid/Ella Moss store at the outlet. I just didn't find anything I really wanted there. Last Call was having a great deal too, something like 40% off on top of the discounted price. So this shirt was around $40, which is pretty much as low as it gets when it comes to Splendid.
I like the white/navy combo a lot, and I can easily wear this shirt to work or as a casual weekend shirt. It's soft and comfortable, like Splendid items tend to be. I got it in size S, which is what I normally wear in Splendid sizing.
The sleeves are convertible so you have the option to leave them down, or roll them up and secure with a button:
Ok, the next outfit I bought is exactly the same brands and color combo! I got a navy Splendid tank from Last Call and a pair of white cut off fringe shorts from Joe's Jeans!
All shorts were on sale for $49 at the Joe's store, which I thought was a pretty great deal since they are usually at least $80. I've also been wanting a pair of white denim shorts for a while! The last pair I got from Zara was pretty cute but I returned them because the fit just wasn't perfect and a size up was even worse. These Joe's shorts are soooo much better! I like that the inseam is slightly longer as well because I do not want booty shorts.
I got these in size 27 because I figured shorts shouldn't fit too tight. I would not have wanted a size down.
Lastly, the find that made me SUPER stoked was the Under Armour Achieve tanks! I own 2 of these tanks, one in white and one in bright yellow. I think these are some of my favorite tanks ever! And of course when I decided that I wanted them in ALL colors, they were sold out everywhere. I even went to the Gilroy outlet a few months ago and specifically looked for them and they weren't there. I had already given up hope of finding more a long time ago, but they were the first things I saw at the Under Armour store this time! And they were 2 for $30!
So I bought one in pink and one in black. I didn't try them on till I got home since I know my size was XS in the ones I already own. But I think for some reason these two run a little smaller. The XS is not tight, but I would have preferred a slightly looser fit so maybe size S would have been better. Oh well, I don't think I'm going to make it back to the outlet any time soon to make an exchange, so I can live with the XS.
Anyway, I consider my outlet trip to be very very successful! I will wear all of these items a lot!
