Cute jacket - now I'm ready.

jacket: c/o shein

This is my favorite thing from this order and makes me very ready for Fall weather.  This jacket is so cute. I love the rainbow and it's super soft and perfect.  And now I am ready for Fall.  Time to bring out the pumpkins, yes??

top: c/o shein

This is the perfect tee to wear with jeans or leggings.  It is long enough to cover your booty, or great for tucking into your jeans.  It's only $10 and comes in over 20 other colors!

shoes: c/o shein

These shoes are so fun! I love the sneaker bootie look and of course love the leopard print. I ordered the size I got last time and they are a little big, so if deciding between two go down one! 

sweatshirt: c/o shein

This is a close first for my favorite thing from this order.  I love the tie dye print and the more cropped length.  Only $13 and comes in two other colors. 

shorts: c/o shein   sports bra: c/o shein

These shorts are so cute.  (They came with a sports bra but the straps weren't adjustable and it was too big.  My bottom half needs a medium, but unfortunately my chest needs a small! But the whole set is $12 so totally worth it!)  This kind of sports bra has become my favorite since I workout in my garage and it's been super hot and humid, so these make for a perfect bra/tank top option.  The back is super cute too.  (I got a medium, but a small would've fit me better.) 

leggings: c/o shein

I love these leggings.  I think they are supposed to be a copy for the gym shark leggings, which I've never tried, but I do know they cost way more than $14.  I've worn them a few times to work out in and really like them! (I got a size medium, which is my normal legging size.) 

bra and leggings set: c/o shein

Clearly going for the loud prints this order.  Give me all the leopard print things! (Perhaps a little too matchy matchy with my leopard watch too.) This set is $18 and I love them both.  Both size medium and fit me well. Cute workout clothes definitely make me more excited about working out, even if it's from home. 

pants: c/o shein

I am attempting to get dressed for real more days in hopes of feeling a little more put together and ready to tackle the day, even though I'm rarely leaving my house.  These kind of pants are perfect because they feel like sweatpants but look much cuter.  Plus they are only $10! 

top: c/o shein

This top had a bunch of good reviews, plus some pictures of it being worn the other way and looked really cute too.  It comes in two other colors and is $11.  It'd be great now with shorts, or with jeans and a cardigan for Fall.

Are date nights still a thing?

jumpsuit: c/o shein

This jumpsuit is so cute! It's pretty wide in the legs, so won't qualify as the most flattering thing you could buy, but could win for one of the most comfortable.  Gosh I wish I had a reason to leave my house other than to go for a walk! I need a date night.  Are those a thing still?  I'm pretty sure we're up to at least six months since we've been on a date.  

tank top: c/o shein

This top is so cute and fun - and it cost only $7! You can easily wear a regular bra with it, it fits true to size and I love it. 

overalls: c/o shein

If you want to try to look like a 12 year old, definitely buy these.  Kidding.  Actually I think 12 year olds probably wouldn't be caught dead in overalls right?  But really I love these.  They are so comfortable and I'm voting them appropriate for a 35 year old.  

tank and pants: c/o shein

This set is so cute.  I love the wide legs and the pants' pockets.  I think it'll look great with mules and a cardigan in Fall.  And both pieces would be great on their own too!

pajama set: c/o shein

Time for three sets of pajamas that will make you happy.  They are all under $25, and I love them.  I mean we're all pretty much living in lounge clothes for the next year still right?  The only downfall is that the tie on the waist doesn't work for the two pairs of shorts.  But they're elastic and fit true to size, so not really a problem.  I love the print of all three and the material is super soft.  

pajama set: c/o shein
pajama set: c/o shein

workout set: c/o shein

This color is perfect for Fall (not ready to admit summer is almost over, so let's say it's perfect for summer too.)  The sports bra is a little longer, which I love.  And the whole set is $22!

swimsuit: c/o shein

I think this may be my favorite swimsuit this summer.  And embarrassingly I've bought quite a few too many.  (When they cost only $13 it's more justifiable right?) I love how this one fits, and love the ruffles on top!

swimsuit: c/o shein

I love this swimsuit too.  It fits well and stays in place.  Bonus - it's only $11! And comes in a lot of other fun colors.   Don't forget to use code Q4forlauren for 15% off your Shein purchase!

Best order yet

 dress: c/o shein

I've probably said this before but this may be my favorite order from shein.  I love every thing I picked out, starting with this dress.  It has pockets, tie waste, really soft, and a good length.  It's $18 and comes in black and a darker grey too. 

 dress: c/o shein

You may as well be wearing pajamas.  Except harder to go the bathroom run.  Worth it.  $15, and a great light weight jumpsuit for summer!

 dress: c/o shein

This dress is so cute! I love the color.  Ignore the wrinkles, I had zero desire to get out my iron and am hoping if I put it in the drier it will work.  Right?  I love it with tennis shoes, or for a beach cover up.  And only $14!

 dress: c/o shein

This material feels almost like a dry fit material, which is nice for the summer.  It's super soft and the perfect length.  And only $17!

 dress c/o shein

This dress in only $13!  It feels like a t-shirt and is so comfortable. Bonus you can wear a regular bra with it too. It also comes in five other colors. 

 jumpsuit: c/o shein

Super comfy jumpsuit. It has little ties at the top so you can adjust the straps, and a really cute v in the back, plus it comes in a bunch of colors.  I think it'd look adorable with a t-shirt under it for cooler weather too. 

 pants: c/o shein

I am in love with these pants.  And can't wait to wear them in the Fall too.  They have an elastic waste, and I LOVE the color.  I ordered a medium because usually their bottoms run small, but which I would've gotten a small because they are a little loose.  I want to wear them all the time!

 leggings: c/o shein

I've never ordered leggings from Shein before, but seeing as that is mostly what I wear I figured I'd give it a try.  And I'm impressed!  Each thing I ordered is comfortable, fits well and I'm excited to work out in them.  These pants are my favorite, and they are only $13! 

 top and bottoms: c/o shein

The print of these are so fun!  The fabric on this is a little on the thinner side, so not sure I'd wear them to the gym - I need to do some better squat testing ;)  But I am in love with the top and will definitely wear it!

workout set: c/o shein

I love both the bra and leggings.  The straps on the bra are adjustable which I need, and both the bottoms and top fit great, and together are only $20! Lots of other color options too.

because I only wear pajamas and workout clothes these days. . . . .

 pajama set: c/o shein

Pretty sure all I wear these days are pajamas and workout clothes.  Okay, I am 100% sure that is all I wear.  While I do miss wearing "real" clothes, these all make me happy so I'm just embracing it and clearly just adding to my closet. 

Matching pajama sets and tie-dye? Yes please.  All this time at home the last few months and I've never been so grateful for the huge amount of lounge wear I own. 

pajama set: c/o shein

Another cute matching pajama set.  The shorts go crazy high, which I don't mind, but I definitely like the top more than the bottom.  And it would look cute with high rise leggings or jeans.  Plus its only $15 for both!


 pants: c/o shein

These were from the men's section so I didn't know how they'd run.  I ordered a medium, and wish I got a small.  But they have a drawstring so they fit fine, and although not the most flattering, they are fun and make me happy. 

 pants: c/o shein

Perfect summer pj pants.  Super light weight, soft, draw string waist.  I love them!

 dress: c/o shein

The one thing that isn't pajamas or workout tops, although it may as well be.  Baggy, soft, comfortable. This would be a super cute beach cover up.  Let's just hope we get to go to the actual beach this summer, because my kids tiny unicorn pool requires no cute cover up.  

 tank top: c/o shein
 tank top: c/o shein

I decided to try out some workout tanks with this order and I love all four that I got.  Both of these were only $9.  The fabric is great - light weight, a little stretchy, a good length, and I love the print of both!

tank top: c/o shein

This one came in a pack of two for only $12.  I've worn them a few times to workout and really like them.  I have some more crop like sports bras, and they're perfect underneath since the armpit holes are really low.  But I love them!

Summer Fun Sale

 lounge  set: c/o shein

It's been so hot here the last two days and I am not complaining.  Two weeks ago we had snow flurries and now it's 86.  Illinois weather is nuts!  I pulled out all my summer clothes, and got a new order in from Shein in perfect time!  

Now that we're home so much I love lounge wear even more than before if that's possible.  Even better when it's matching.  This set is super cute and comfortable.  (And $24 for both.) 

 dress: c/o shein

I own quite a bit of leopard printed things and think this dress is perfect.  It's $14 and lightweight.  It's definitely on the thinner side so could be perfect for a beach coverup.  Or with cute sandals or sneakers. 

 jumpsuit: c/o shein

This is called a jogger jumpsuit.  Two of my favorite things.  Slightly on the unflattering side, but I do not care one bit.  And it has pockets.  Is cuffed at the bottom, which is great for my shorter legs.  I've already worn this a few times since I've gotten it.  $15 and you'll want to wear it all the time. 

swimsuit: c/o shein

I've seen a lot of people post about this swimsuit and figured I'd try it out! I love, love the colors of it and the front.  I think my butt may be a little too big for most of the shein swimsuits I've tried. But this one has more coverage than other's I've tried.  And for $13 is worth it!
