Does anyone else take pictures of outfits you try on in the dressing room? I know I do! For some reason I feel that a picture (rather than the mirror) is a better way of determining whether something looks good on me. I was about to delete some of these photos when I thought how fun it would be to share them on the blog! It’s kind of like taking you guys on a shopping trip with me. Today I will be sharing some items that I decided not to purchase.
First up is this yellow off-the-shoulder top I spotted at H&M. I thought the bright yellow color and off-shoulder style was perfect for summer. However when I tried this on, the elastic at the top was a bit tight and it kept sliding up instead of sitting on my shoulders. The top was a pass for me.
I did purchase the jeans in this photo!
I was on the hunt for a striped button down when I spotted this one at Marshall’s. The shirt looked really cute on but the material was a bit too thin for my liking.
Next up is this gingham romper from American Eagle. I don’t personally own anything in this print, but I have been loving seeing this trend! This romper is so adorable! I passed on this because it was a tad short and I didn’t feel comfortable with the lower cut neckline. Looking at it again, maybe I should have bought it! It is now on sale for $18 if anyone is interested in purchasing!
I tried on this top at Zara. I was trying to find something in a gingham print and loved the cut of this top. I wasn’t sure about the ruffles when I tried this on and didn’t feel the quality was worth the price.
This yellow dress. I LOVE it. I was immediately drawn to it when I saw it in Zara. The color and neckline are so beautiful (reminds me of Belle from Beauty & the Beast). The dress was also great quality and was lined. I have no occasion to wear this to and felt it was a bit overpriced. This dress still hasn’t left my mind. I may have to make a trip back to Zara and pick it up!
Next up is another yellow item. I tried on these wide leg pants from Forever21. I believe they are meant to be a culottes but they were way too long on me (I am 5’3). If they were the right length and a little less wide I probably would have purchased.
Another gingham item?! Sorry I really want something in this print you guys! I spotted this midi dress in H&M and had to try it on. Though this dress looked adorable on, I think I needed a bigger size because it was way too tight in the leg/hip area. The fabric was also not the best quality. If this item goes on sale and I can find a bigger size I will definitely purchase.
I’m thinking about turning these types of posts into a series. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Were there any items you think I should have purchased? Should I go back and grab the Belle dress?
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
