Extended Style Notes

 H&M Striped Blouse - Size 4

 What I loved....

  • Length - This top is a great length for gals with a short torso. (Center front = 19.5’’)
  • Side Slits on Bottom Hem - When I try on shirts usually they fit well until then reach my hips and the everything comes to a screeching halt, but that was not the case with this top. There are two notched slits in the bottom hem of the shirt which prevent this top from being too snug around my hips.
  • Stripes - I’m seeing 70s inspired stripes everywhere this season. Loving this trend!

 What could be better… 

  • Wider armhole opening - It’s no secret that I have curvy athletic arms. This top is slightly snug around them, but it’s not a total deal breaker since I’m still able to move my arms comfortably. (Armhole opening = 6’’)

 

Garment measurements:

Center front = 19.5’’

Center back = 23.25’’

Chest = 17.25’’ (34.5’’ total)

Armhole opening = 6’’

Bottom shirt width = 19’’

 

AEO Denim X Jegging - Ok let’s be real. When was the last time you shopped at American Eagle? For me it was sometime in high school when I completely wrote off the brand as been there done that. Recently, I was talking with a friend about how I was having a hard time finding jeans that fit and she recommended that I go to American Eagle. At first I rolled my eyes, but then I decided to give them a chance. There jeans are amazing! They are the most comfortable jeans I have found in a long time. These jeans have replaced my love for J Crew denim. So it’s serious :)

What I loved...

  • Stretchy -  With my curvy hips and thighs, I always need some stretch! (Fabrication: 54% Cotton, 37% Modal, 7% Polyester, 2% Elastane)
  • Perfect length - Thankfully AEO denim offers “Short” length so I do not have to waste time or money further modifying these jeans. (Inseam = 26.5’’)

 

Garment measurements:

Waist = 27.5’’

Hip = 37’’

Inseam = 26.5’’

Rise = 8.75’’

 

Bag -  Got a great deal on this Kelsi Dagger bag at one of the new Macy’s Backstage stores! Love the perforation - such a cool detail!

Shoes - Converse in leather make me happy! :)
