10 Outfits I’m Loving Right Now

April 14, 2019


Erin Schrader

The weeks keep on passing by and I’m still getting dressed. One of these is good, one of these is not. Hint: the good is me getting dressed. These posts would get a lot more awkward if I stopped. The not so good is that time is freaking FLYING by. How are we to the middle of April already? Did March actually happen this year? If so, I don’t remember it. Regardless of time flying and be putting clothes on, one thing is for sure and that is this weeks roundup of outfits is solid. Or at least I think so! From adorable shorts [that are actually comfortable] from maxi dresses of my dreams and a few shoes of my dreams — there is good stuff packed in this post. While you make your way through it, I’m going to return to my couch for a much needed nap. Between lack of sleep and a cold that is lingering, energy is not on my side. I hope you all had a great weekend and are excited for the week ahead. Reminder to mark you calendars that April 23rd, a new Gibson x LIY Collection [think Garden Spring Party!] is coming your way, exclusively to Nordstrom.com! I can’t wait to share it all with you!

Before we get into all of the outfits, 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 [literally every outfit housed in ONE spot] 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!
