real talk + attainable fashion

Spoiler alert: I’m still shopping. If there is something 2019 isn’t bringing, it’s a slow down on the “checkout” button. Give me an excuse to order anything to “try” for all of you and I’m all over it. Over the past several months it seems that the internet has taken such a curiosity in Amazon Fashion – “is it good? is it awful? WAIT AMAZON SELLS CLOTHES?” so I’ve been trying to order more and more from there to see what’s worth it and what isn’t. Additionally, I’m still shopping at Nordstrom [duh] and I can’t resist the occasional urges to shop at American Eagle, Backcountry and J.Crew. Have I listed all of the online stores yet? If you’re in the market for some incredible deals, new sneakers or a cute date night top, you’ve come to the right place my friends. I’ve rounded up 10 of my recent outfits / purchases and are bringing them to you here to browse through!

One more thing before we dive in! Let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – 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! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright, fellow “I like to get dressed” friends, let’s begin!

    The denim jumpsuit looks great on you. Love those NB sneakers too!


  2. TAMMY says:

    I love the bule jumpsuit on you. The jumpsuits you showed us need a little hemming so that you can see the stylish shoes. I love the yellow cover-up. This can pass as a summer casual undress too.

  3. Beth says:

    What size American Eagle high waisted jegging are you wearing? I see that you wear “short” but can’t see what size. I think I wear the same size as you but always get confused when it comes to the fit of pants and leggings. I love the high-waist option. Thanks so much.

Here at LIY, we believe cheap wine doesn’t have to taste like cheap wine [not that we would know the difference, since we only ever drink cheap wine].
