Linen Blend Shift Dress - I love a good linen shift in the summertime. Which is why I have no many in my closet. As a result, I'm pickier about what makes the cut now. This dress was cute and the material was good, but it just didn't have that zing. Definitely a good buy, but not something I need right now. Result: Returned.
Distressed Boyfriend Denim Shorts - My denim cutoffs are probably too short for me now that I'm 30. I joke, but only a little bit. A longer length would get more wear from me, so I grabbed this pair. Unfortunately, they were too big. Next time, I'll go down a size. Otherwise, they were quality denim and really comfortable. Result: Returned.
Maxi Tank Dress - It took me quite awhile, but now I'm firmly on the maxi bandwagon. I love their versatility. Fancy or casual, just switch up your accessories. When I saw this simple gray one, I knew it had to be mine. The racerback is cute and sporty and the material is soft without totally losing its shape. Result: Kept.
Classic Tall Faux-Leather Tote - That tan tote of mine gets a ridiculous amount of use (examples here, here, and here). I needed a black version to mix it up and I knew it would also be a workhorse. Again, the faux leather is super soft and supple, looking for more expensive than it truly is. My only complaint is that this current version doesn't have a top zip, so the bag is always open. Not a total dealbreaker, but a zipper would've been nice. Old Navy, please take note. Result: Kept.
Relaxed Racerback Tank - Somehow, I was lacking a gray tank top. When I need a basic, I need a basic. This tank is a great price, cotton, and a simple, classic shape. It works for layering or on its own. Simplicity is best. Result: Kept.
