Shop My Closet // Weekly Roundup + Sales

September 9, 2017


Erin Schrader

Coming at you from Seattle this morning! A few of us LIY girls traveled out here to attend Create + Cultivate Conference which starts in approximately 10 minutes [eeeek, I need to hurry!] but I wanted to get this week’s roundup of outfits your way! Thankfully, lots of these pieces are on sale which basically means you can’t afford not to shop em’. At least that’s how I justify everything to my husband. Because I gotta run I’m going to hop off of here, but if you have any questions about any of the items below ask away! Hope you are all having a great weekend!

For sizing reference, I am 5’4, 125 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can pin any of these looks below to save for future reference! Alright now seriously, let’s begin! How to Wear a Camo Tee

    I picked up that AE camo top earlier this summer, so cute! Thank you for posting your sizes! It’s very helpful 🙂 Not to get too private but do you have a favorite bra brand/style? It’s hard to find a good (and supportive) t-shirt bra.
