Fitting Room Snapshots (J.Crew + Madewell)


Sharing a few try-on pieces from J.Crew and Madewell.  Current promo at Madewell –  25% off Pre Fall Faves and J.Crew – up to 50% off wear now styles.  

I wanted to check out some new arrivals in person, like the green dress  which I loved.  I didn’t buy anything that day even though I loved a few pieces.  No impulse purchases. Wanted to make sure I really love something vs the item just being really cute. If I can’t stop thinking about an item, it’s easy to order online than have buyers remorse. 



I find that green never photographs well in dressing rooms for some reason. This green is a beautiful vibrant one in person. I tried on my usual size and it fit me true to size. Loved everything about this dress! Ruffle trim tiered dress  tts | Slides size up


I’ve been eyeing this dress online since it arrived. It’s darling!  Tried on size 2 below and overall fit was fine. There was a tad extra room in the chest area which might be great if you’re blessed up there. Perhaps a strapless bra would fill in the empty space a tad more lol (I had these nippies on). Smocked waist dress in sunny bloom | Slides 



Loved this cardigan!  It was not on sale when I tried it on so it didn’t come home with me but this one is just a perfect summer to fall cardigan. Wearing xs below but wish I would have tried small to compare as I might like it a tad roomier. It does run true to size though. 

Absolutely loved the cut of these jeans and the wash which is nicer in person. I tried on my usual size 26 and they felt just slightly tight in the waist for me (but I did try them on after a big breakfast). Crochet Cardigan in xs – tts  | Tank runs a tad small 




The store had this sweater tank in two other colors but it comes in five online. It is a really nice basic that not only looks great on its own, but layers nicely under blazers/jackets/cardigans. Great piece that will transition nicely from summer into fall.  It is longer than in the picture below as I have it folded under. It has stretch to it but the xs looked so tiny. I tried small below.

Didn’t find much at Madewell. Was hoping for a better selection of new arrivals.  

But…I did love these pants! Tres chic!  They didn’t have size 0 or 2 so I decided to try 00.   These definitely run big as I was actually able to fit in 00 (I’m sizes 26 in jeans for reference).  I love the versatility of these pants – great for the office with a nice blouse but also perfect for everyday dressed down with slides or sneakers. brown wide leg pantsWide Leg pants | BR tank in xs | Birkenstocks 



This gingham short sleeve sweater was another favorite (pictures don’t do it justice). Runs true to size. gingham madewell sweater outfitGingham Square neck top in xs |  Madewell jeans tts | Birks 


Really cute ruffle details on this sleeveless sweater which in on sale + extra 25% off. Loved the color but I just didn’t feel me in it for some reason…maybe if it was a inch longer. This top might be great if you don’t have a long torso. Top | Jeans | Birkenstocks 



I love this color but it does not love me back!  Not a flattering shade on me (looks great on picture but not with my face).  It is on the shorter side, great if you have a shorter torso. Tts.Button Front Sweater tank in xs
