I apologize. I had full intentions on posting right after the Fashion Show but sometimes you get in a rut. To pick up from the Anthropologie Fashion I have some try-ons.

The store was pretty busy, of course, after the Fashion Show so I quickly walked the store to find some things to try on.

~ Embroidered Shorts, size 8 ~
I think these are by Elevenses but I didn’t grab a pic of the inside tag. These are high-waisted and look to have about a 4 to 5-inch inseam. I liked the fit of these on until I started moving around. The waist kept shifting and the hem/inseam of the shorts kept riding up. I don’t want to have to fidget with my shorts all day. Though I loved the embroidery and colors of the shorts they are a pass. (As soon as I found out what these are I’ll update with a link.)
Pretty pops of neon pink throughout.
I loved these linen pants. I think it was not only the color but the embroidery along the side. Though they are crops the size 29 hit me right at the floor. These are a relaxed fit and though I might be able to fit into a 28, I like the relaxed look of the 29s. If I were to get these, I’d have to probably get them hemmed to be cropped. There is a button holding up the hem so that would have to go, along with the strap. Usually you see this on shirts. 
I saw Ivory and Wine in-store and there is also Green showing up online. They Grey is my favorite color of the four.
Lynden Chambray Tank, White, Medium ~

Online there is only the light denim color but I did find White in-store. I wanted something neutral to try on with the bottoms I grabbed and chose this tank. It’s not really a favorite of mine. The fit is ok but it just kind of hung there. It definitely needs a cardigan or pretty jewelry to liven it up. The Medium is a good fit but I think I could size to a Small to deal with the gaping at the arms.

~ Maeve Fluttered Maya Blouse, Neutral Motif, size 8 ~
I love the look of the flowy-ness of this blouse. It comes in both solids and several print options. The size 8 fit well but I think I could size down to a Petite or a size 6. I do like how the flutter-sleeve covers my upper arms but overall, I think I can do better. I have added it to my wishlist hoping to catch it on sale.

And what I wore to the Fashion Show. The Nimbin Peasant Blouse was in the 2013 Fashion Show and it was the one item I bought that day. I’ve worn it several times but have never posted a Que Bella. The shorts are the J Crew Pleated Structured Short from a few years ago. {Factory} The shoes are from Anthropologie last year, the Terah Heels. They are perfect for transitioning into Spring with an open-toe but not fully a sandal.

Have a Great Day! I have a lot of goodies to review over the next few days! Hope you come back by!

I found the Puff-Sleeve Blazer in Warm Poppy in the sale section in a size 6. I try to get a size 10 Petite or an 8 in blazers but there wasn’t one to be found anywhere in this color. This size will be fine as long as the sleeves on the top I wear are thin or sleeveless.

After a few days of dressing down, it was time to start back with outfits in decent clothes again. I picked up the Zora Tee during the Tory Burch Friends & Family. The shorts are from J Crew last year.

I loved this whole outfit and cannot wait to wear it again!

This outfit is actually a repeat from last year but I never published it anywhere. I wore this to what was to be the last Soccer playoff game of the season. The boys tried their best but we lost in the end. It was a great season and they should all be proud of their accomplishments and how far they did get in the playoffs!

I realized I’ve been getting dressed but haven’t posted any Que Bella’s. These two outfits are some favorites!

I couldn’t wait to wear this top and a friend’s Birthday Happy Hour was the perfect opportunity. I was a copy-cat pairing it with white shorts like the model from the Anthropologie Fashion Show.

Another outfit that I LOVED was blatantly copied from Classy Girls Wear Pearls. Loved it on Sarah and on me! I wore this to the #JCrewStyleSession. I didn’t want to go full on Crew and the shorts did the trick. The necklace seems to be an in-store only item and a pendant version of the Crystal Compilation Necklace in Sunwashed Aqua.

Shorts: Milly Silk Pelican (8)
Necklace: J Crew Deco Pendant (in-store only)

I felt very boho in the first outfit and very chic in the second. 

I’m off to NYC right now! Follow me on Instagram @audreybellatx to see pics
from the trip. They will be on my side-bar as well if you don’t have IG.

Before this promo ends I wanted to give you a quick review of some shorts and a tee that are part of the latest J Crew promo of 25% off Tees, Shorts and Swim.

These shorts below are all the same style the Pleated Short. I found these last year in both the red and blue stripe. See them both on me here.

This year, they are offered in a Navy Nautical Stripe and Structured Cotton in solid colors – White, Black, Neon Rose and Pacific Turquoise. 

I prefer these to the flat-front 3-, 5- inch shorts. The pleating gives the shorts a little shape, almost A-Line.

Side view – Umm…yeah…so WMM gave me that little beer belly from all her Miller time Friday’s. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Rear view – As you can see the stripes line up almost perfectly in the back.

The Neon Rose is a beautiful color and works nicely with my skin tone.

The Nautical Stripe are a Linen-Cotton blend which causes a slight problem. They pill at the inseam. You can see the image below, on the right side of the picture where the shorts pill due. On the left, I used my sweater shaver to remove the pilling. A minute worth of work and the pills are gone. Also, I have washed these consistently in the machine and then laid them flat to dry with no problems. The solid colors are Cotton so I don’t know/don’t think they will pill.

Yes, I buy multiples. All that’s missing is the Pacific Turquoise. It’s gorgeous IRL but my store didn’t have my size. One other thing about these is that they have pockets. I don’t dislike them with pockets but I think they look better with the pockets still sown shut. 

I also found the Linen Soleil Tee. The Linen Tees are a staple for me during the summer. This one is sheer but with the print in the front I don’t need to wear a cami under. This will pair well with all my new shorts. I took a Medium.

I thought and thought about ordering swim during this promo but I need to purge the many bikinis and one-piece suits I have first. Also, none of the prints were very appealing to me this year. Maybe there will be something in the later roll-outs.

Hope these reviews help!

Have a Great Day!
