Dressing Room Diaries – Sunny

85 total views

Happy Friday ladies. Butter yellow is a creamy, comforting color that’s very popular for spring 2022. Daffodil is the Pantone color, but I’m spotting more butter colors that are muted with gray. It’s a pale, delicate neutral that’ll coordinate with many other colors.

If you’re new here, welcome. A dressing room diary is when I go into a store and try on new merchandise so you can see how it looks on a woman over 25. For reference, I am 5’4″ and weigh around 138 lbs with broad shoulders and straight hips. I have a long torso and arms so I often buy one size larger on top.

I style clothes that are not flattering shapes or colors on me because this is a service for you…I’m not shopping for me 🙂 A reader recently asked why I share what size I am wearing. I do this as a reference point for you so you can gauge the fit for yourself. I hope you find some styling ideas as a jumping-off point for your wardrobe.

WEARING –  REVERSIBLE HOODED PULLOVER  –  HIGH-RISE PATCH POCKET JEANS

This hooded pullover has a puckered fabric that easily reverses by snipping out the tag. It comes in this colorway or cameo rose with toffee in misses, petite, women’s, and tall. I’m wearing a misses small. The jeans have a high-rise and patch pockets with rolled cuffs. It comes in this block island wash and pale green. I’m wearing a misses 6.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but lower rises are beginning to trend so we may be in for a change soon.

WEARING –  PLAID ELLIPTICAL SHIRTDRESS  –  PIMA COTTON LEGGINGS

This shirtdress dress has buttons all the way up the front so you could wear it open over other things as a duster. If I wore it straight, I would probably try it with a belt to give it some shape. I am wearing a misses XS which is way too tight and long so it runs true to size. I like it with these Pima cotton leggings which are deep blue. They also come in 5 colors, misses, petite, women’s and tall. I’m wearing a misses small.

WEARING –  PIMA 3/4 SLEEVE STRIPED TEE  –  AUTHENTIC SLIM FIT JEANS  –  SWEATER KNIT CAPE PONCHO

This Pima tee comes in 7 colors, misses, petite, and women’s. I’m wearing a misses small in cream/butter. The sleeves would be a better length in petite on me. In this misses, they are neither long nor 3/4 so look sort of funny. These are J.Jill’s super popular slim-fit jeans in white. They also come in 3 other colors. I am wearing a misses 4. This sweater poncho is “daffodil heather” and so fun for spring. It also comes in a navy and cream stripe, in one size fits all.

WEARING –  RELAXED ONE BUTTON SHIRT  –  SLIM ANKLE JEANS  –  CROPPED CABLE V-NECK CARDIGAN

This shirt comes in 2 fun polka dots or this floral which is marked down. It’s 100% breathable cotton and quite lightweight. It comes in J. Jill’s full range of sizes, I am wearing a misses small. The jeans are the same slim jeans as above, this time in the Neptune wash. This V-neck cardigan is really nice. It’s a cotton blend with spandex so it’s nice and stretchy. It comes in 3 colors and because it’s cropped, I am wearing the misses in small.

WEARING –  BRUSHED TERRY ELLIPTICAL TOP  –  SLIM ANKLE JEANS  –  MARLED SHAWL COLLAR CARDIGAN

This cardi is a tweedy lavender color that will coordinate with lots of soft colors. It’s made from a soft cotton blend that resists wrinkling. I am wearing a misses small. I’m wearing it over the wearever brushed terry top in lavender tint. This fabric is so incredibly soft. It also comes in a green or blue in misses, petite, women’s and tall. I’m wearing a misses small. The jeans are the slim ankle style in petite 6. This color seems to be sold out online.

WEARING –  SEAMED STRETCH TUNIC. –  CROPPED CABLE V-NECK CARDIGAN  –  SLIM ANKLE JEANS

This is the authentic slim ankle jean in light barley. I’m wearing them with the same cabled v-neck cardigan, this time in sea salt heather which interestingly, matches the light barley jeans. The white tunic shirt is cotton with stretch and is on sale. I love a great white shirt and this one is very highly rated. It’s a cotton blend with 5% spandex so very stretchy and comfy.
