Style: baker boy caps (starting at $9)

style trend comment

Baker boy caps are the perfect accessory for the fall. Also known as the page boy or newsboy these hats are all the rage. Perched on your head forward or slightly off center, this hat is reminiscent of the French beret. It’s the perfect hat for pairing with a dressed up look (here’s looking at you Karlie Kloss) or to wear for a more casual occasion. I’ve rounded up some hats that won’t break the bank – starting at $9, and all under $29! Let me know below: are you into this renewed hat trend?


SHOP THE LOOK:

1. Tan knit baker boy cap {only $9 &
4 colors}

2. Houndstooth baker boy cap

3. Red baker boy cap

4. Tweed baker boy cap

5. Tweed/black baker boy cap

6. Leopard print baker boy cap

7. Black velvet baker boy cap

8. Blue/tweed baker boy cap

Style: ruffle wrap skirts starting at $8!

style trend comment

Style: ruffle wrap skirts | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

A fun twist on the traditional skirt for the spring and summer season is the wrap skirt paired with a ruffle detail. Highlight the skirt details by keeping the top detail-free (think lightweight tank or camisole, or a solid color tee). Alternatively, make an eye-catching look by pairing the skirt with an equally detailed top. The options are endless and will always yield something amazing. I’ve rounded some of my favorites below!


SHOP THE LOOK:

Beige ruffle wrap skirt

Floral print ruffle wrap skirt

Navy blue ruffle wrap mini skirt {only $8}

Blue striped ruffle wrap skirt

Olive green ruffle wrap skirt

Ruffle wrap skirt in shirting detail

Red gingham ruffle wrap skirt {under $25}

Khaki ruffle wrap skirt {under $30}

Lately, I’ve been looking for classic tops with a modern twist. When I came across this top, I definitely loved how it looked. But, I was hesitant to purchase from the retailer since it was based internationally. In the past, I’ve come across some other fast fashion websites and wasn’t sure if (1) they were reputable (2) if I was going to get what was pictured on their website. After doing my research, I moved forward with placing my order.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH SHEIN
While looking at their selection of tops, I noticed that various tops had different measurements and the difference was quite drastic between two tops that looked similar. Unsure of what size to order since it was unclear to me where the measurements were taken from (i.e biceps?), I hopped onto chat with their customer service. She was quite helpful and even sent me a visual of where to measure.

Since it was shipping from China, I expected it to take a bit of time getting to me (~2 weeks). Surprisingly, it came much sooner (note: the return address on the package was from New Jersey).

I’ve tried to purchase clothes from Asian retailers while abroad and it always seemed off. Most likely it’s because it’s cut for a different body type. I was pleasantly surprised when this top fit well. The material is nice especially considering the price of the top. And, when I pull it out of the wash, no ironing is needed!

I’ve had a good experience with this first order, and am hoping to order from them again. Hope these tips help you – let me know your experiences in the comments below!
