All I can say is what a difference a week can make! Last week, I talked about my outfit being an inner reflection of the transitions I'm going through. And I'm back with another look this week that's bright and cheery because that's exactly how I feel. In case you didn't catch my big announcement here, it explains it all. Okay, okay, I'll tell you here, too. I just was hoping to write a post about it (and still plan to). I'M ENGAGED! This completely come as s huge surprise because we never really talked about marriage. We always talked about getting a house because priorities. We're just realistic. We've been together SO long that just figured if it's meant to happen it will. I wasn't going to push it-it's not my style. Anyway, we have so many big weddings this year (another reason I sure didn't see this coming) that my mind is no where close to planning ours. We're headed to Tulum for his good friend's wedding next week, which this top is coming with me. And these pictures were taken a day before he proposed, but really showcases how I'm feeling. 

But it's that time of the week where I flashback to last here's look here. This look is more of what I normally wear (minus the heels), but all pieces that still are on rotation. I can't even tell you how many times I've worn that camel jacket!

To be honest, my transitional look wasn't meant to describe my life right now. Only after trying to figure out a title for this, it hit me. I'm transitioning again and again. And if you haven't noticed around here or Instagram, I've been pretty MIA. This season has been full of twists and turns and really little time to rest. I started a freelance job just under two weeks ago and it feels like it's been a whole month. My brain is being used in ways it hasn't and it's a good thing. But I guess just like any job, the beginning can zap all your brain power. One thing I'm grateful for is the ability to work from anywhere. Traffic in LA is another thing that can suck out that last of your energy. The craziest thing is we're heading to Tulum in two weeks, too. Totally not a complaint, but trying to get settled into a new routine and then also finalize our itinerary makes me feel as if I'm being pulled in the opposite direction. So if anyone has tips for Tulum, help a girl out, k?

And now it's time to flashback to last year's look here. It's funny because I just was around this location a couple of weeks ago and it's completely different. It was a spot that was mostly deserted and made for a good photo op.

Madewell Try-On's: Spring


First things first, there's a big Madewell sale going on and today is the last day! I was hoping to get this post up earlier, but better late than never, right? So the good news is you can take 20% off everything except denim and their leather transport collection or 30% off orders of $200+ with code FOLLOWURCART. Of course, I had to get in and do a quick try on. Actually, I did two trips as you'll be able to tell with my hair.

RUFFLE FAUX WRAP DRESS $150 // Size 0

Madewell didn't come out with many dresses this season, but thought this one was worth trying on. It is bold, but a flattering cut. I could see how this could work in an office setting or for the weekend. It does run true to size.

TEXTURE & THREAD GATHERED-SLEEVE TOP $45 // SIZE XS

Okay, you might recognize this from my last post. Clearly, I loved it. The color is a nice blush for Spring. For me, the texture and material is what makes this extra special. I will say it does run short and you would need high-waisted jeans.

cute stripe tee for women

HI-FI SHRUNKEN TEE $35 // SIZE XS

Can Madewell ever make a bad stripe? Nope. This one is a little more tomboy, but I kinda love that with the smaller fit. It's a little loose and felt I could wear an xs or small without seeing any real difference.



TEXTURE & THREAD WRAP-TIE TOP $45 // SIZE XXS

This is just another great updated basic top that will go with so much. It does come in several other colors. I did find this to run big. I would have never tried it on an xxs until seeing it in person. It's still not fitted, so I would say size down.



RAINBOW STRIPE BUTTON-FRONT TANK TOP $58 // SIZE M (PROBABLY NEED XS)

I really was hoping my store would have this in my size, but the smallest size was a medium. It's clearly so big, but fun for the warmer months. I love the elastic at the back for fit. I'm thinking I would need a XS in this one.

HIGH-RISE DENIM BOYSHORTS IN GLENOAKS WASH $69.50 // SIZE 25 

EMBROIDERED FABLE TOP $65.99 // SIZE XS

This top might look familiar, but I had to try it on again now that it's been marked down. It really looks best tucked in. While I don't try on denim often, I am on the hunt for shorts. Their denim does run a size bigger than what I normally get or if you are between sizes you should get your smaller size. These are just the right amount of high-waist for someone who is short in the torso, like myself. Surprisingly, they were comfy around the waist. While I'm still debating if they are flattering on my rear, they do cover it all. I'm just not used to a more fitted pair of shorts.




Which is your favorite?
