Tops for Leggings (That Cover Your Bum)

In case you missed it, last week I shared the ultimate Guide to Faux Leather Leggings. I created a rating system and gave you my most honest opinion on four pairs of leggings. In case you missed it, read it here! I received some incredible feedback on it and I got quite a few requests for top suggestions to pair with the leggings. As a curvy girl, I know it can be a struggle to find tops that flatter and cover your butt. Lucky for you, I’ve rounded up some of my favorites (many on sale) that would work well with those leggings you have. I’ve found options for every body and price point. Happy shopping! xx

This week on my stories, you voted that you’d rather see fall basics under $50 rather than coats and jackets. I am so glad that I asked because I was preparing to do only outerwear! You all help me so much, I so appreciate all of your feedback. At the end of the day, I want to bring you things that you actually WANT to see so keep the comments coming!

This week, I challenged myself to find 50 items under $50 that are perfect for transitioning through seasons. I ended up finding some of my favorite pieces that I’m wearing (above $50) in under $50 dupes! I’ve also sprinkled in some coats + jackets under $50 in here. I will be showcasing about ten+ of these items on my IG story, so be sure to tune into that! Can’t wait to hear what you find.

Try On Confidential - Episode 2: Abercrombie

Happy Friday! I am beyond excited to keep this try on series going, the response from last week was incredible. As we keep this going, I will definitely fine tune the process. Keep the requests coming, I love hearing what you are shopping for! This week, I am featuring an oldie- Abercrombie & Fitch. Hear me out here- I could never fit into A&F when I was younger, I barely squeezed into their XL in 8th grade. After searching the web I kept coming across items from them and finally, I caved. They seem to have really reinvented themselves, with minimal logos and better sizing. I ordered a bunch of things and decided to do a try on haul for you all.  The prices are also incredibly reasonable- especially with this weekend's sale! 

A couple things to note:

  • Their sizing is still a tad wonky. I am a true 14, I fit into their largest size denim (32W) but sometimes I wear large's in their bottoms. Some of their stretchy bottoms can fit a 16. For the most part, I'm a large in their clothing. Occasionally I will buy an XL, some of the oversized sweaters I've purchased a medium. My best advice: order a few sizes and try them out. It takes some time to find your fit but once you do - I promise you won't be disappointed.
  • Join their *free* A&F Club - you get exclusive offers, earn points on every purchase and access to exclusive sales. 
  • I'm really impressed with their quality, their sales are awesome so I feel like these items are a great value. Other than them not being 100% size inclusive, I feel like they're a gem! 

Be sure to tune into my IG stories to see how these items fit on me. I've also added a few other styles that would be great to freshen up your fall wardrobe! Leave a comment below on what styles you're loving.
