This slouchy sweater was a random lucky find from H&M - it comes in several colors, and the cuffed 3/4 sleeves has to be my favorite detail! Material is a light to medium weight knit that will transition into spring/summer. The neckline isn't too wide so can sit regularly on my shoulders, or can be shifted slightly for an asymmetrical off-shoulder look. If you're usually in-between sizes there, I'd suggest going up if you want the looser casual look.
As promised, I got my Shopbop order in so wanted to do some quick reviews. First off, I had pointed out the J.Brand Alana jeans which look like an exact dupe for my beloved pair (that you guys see almost on a weekly basis!), except with a shorter inseam so petites don't need to get a hem job like I did. I ordered them to try on before I could recommend them soundly, and they did not disappoint. The material composition and color (vanity = black) are exactly the same as the ones I have, but the length is awesome for shorter legs with a 26.5" inseam. In the photo above, I have them cuffed a little. My second choice would be the mid-rise jeans also in the same material, with a 28" inseam that may require a hem.
On to the striped flats in the first photo - I've wanted a pair of Soludos espadrilles since last spring, but the striped ones were always sold out in my size. This is my first time trying on this brand and a size 5 fit me, so these might run a touch big. They are oh-so-cute (wish I had a picture showing the ankle ribbons!) and instantly made me wishful for warmer weather. The back of the heel part is not uncomfortable per se, but do rub a bit when I walked around in the house. I am keeping these but only time will tell how the backs will feel with long-term walking. Two other styles I was debating between are the classic leather platform espadrilles and the adorable striped smoking slippers, both with a closed back so maybe they won't have the rubbing issue.
I was most excited to try these booties. I keep hearing from friends how they can walk miles in these after a slight break-in period. The quality and craftsmanship look really nice and sturdy coming out of the box, and a size 36 hugged my foot (they definitely run at least half a size small). I loved so many aspects about these but the color was a little lighter than what I expected. The darker Camel looks closer to what I want, but that color is in only suede versus nubuck leather which I loved. Am currently undecided on these.
These jeans fit like a glove true to most R&B pairs I've tried on, but the knee distressing looked a little strange on me. In Nick's words, they looked too neatly rectangular versus the haphazard look that I love for distressed denim. This Madewell shirt is a good, basic slouchy V-neck cotton tee...and I've tried on quite a few before getting this one. I also have the lighter gray heather marble from Nordstrom which is a different price, but I feel like it's the same exact shirt! I originally had tried it on in xxs, but for the looser look I want an XS definitely fit best without being too low-cut. It's great for pairing casually under moto jackets, blazers, and denim jackets alike.
A non-pictured keeper for me is the Hunter Tour foldable boots (my review) that I finally caved and got in black. I love my colored wellies, but black is and will always be the more conservative and professional-looking option for commuting on a rainy day. They're also a no-brainer pairing with basic black tights. I already have a kids pair in black, but they feel so heavy in comparison to the Tour that I never reach for them anymore. I'm donating my prior pair to clear room for these (FYI, if you're looking for a place to donate gently-worn, office-appropriate clothes I love Dress for Success). I also wanted to mention that I've been putting cushioned inserts inside all my boots for added comfort, and an unexpected benefit is they serve as a slight platform and raise your foot up. This way, boot shafts that are just marginally too tall can potentially fit better on shorter legs.
