Before the crazy - SHEIN bikini

 swimsuit: c/o shein

Remember two weeks ago when life was normal and things weren't completely crazy and unknown? We were planning on going to Jamaica in April (just Chris and I and our best friends) to celebrate our 15 year anniversary.  Shein sent me some swimsuits to review and I was planning on bringing them on our trip.  I'm so sad we're not going, but I know we'll reschedule and go someday, whenever that may be.  So here's some cute suits!  This first one was my favorite, little cheeky in the back but I feel comfortable in and love it. 

 swimsuit: c/o shein

Love the top of this suit! These bottoms are my own from Old Navy because the others are a tad low for my level of comfort to put on the internet ;)  But I would totally wear them on vacation.  The top straps are adjustable which is necessary for my lack of anything up top!

swimsuit: c/o shein

I love, love, love the front of this swimsuit.  The back is super revealing of my behind, which I do not love.  I may still take it if we ever get to go on our trip, but I do wish it had more coverage.  I ordered a medium which is my true size, but maybe if I ordered a size up?

Either way I feel like Shein is a great place to order some suits from, as these are all under $15! Use code Q4forlauren for 15% off your order!

Stars, Leopard and Swimsuits

star shirt: c/o shein
leopard top: c/o shein
I may have a problem with stars and leopard prints.  How much is too much?  This star top is only $9 and the leopard $16.  I love the oversized fit of both of them!
dress: c/o shein
I love the color of this dress and would be perfect for any season, but let's hope warm weather and spring is close! Also I found these cute shoes at TJMaxx for $20 and I want to wear them everywhere once it's warmer.  They're so comfortable.  If only they'd stay this white!
 swimsuit: c/o shein
Swimsuits for $12? Yes please.  We're going on a beach trip in April and I can not wait so I wanted to try a few new swimsuits.  I got a few swimsuits from Shein last year and felt like that held up great and I loved how they fit.  This one is perfect! 
swimsuit: c/o shein
I wanted to love this swimsuit because the colors are so cute and it looked adorable in the picture. Lesson learned - make sure there are more reviews and pictures with someone wearing it!  The front is great but the back is SO cheeky I would not wear it around any children.  Or maybe any people. But it does look cute if you had shorts or on a getaway with just your husband or if you have a tiny little butt.  ;) 
tie dye top: c/o shein

This top is only $6, which is great if you're unsure of a trend.  Like tie dye or cropped tops.  Perfect for high waisted workout pants or jeans!  

Happy almost Friday!!

Tie dye and crop tops

striped sweater: c/o shein     orange and cream sweater: c/o shein

Both these two sweaters are perfect for when the weather starts getting a little warmer, or you're just sick of all your thick winter sweaters.  The second one is on sale for $12 and I love the orange color.  

purse: c/o shein  

I've needed a new purse for awhile and love this one.  It's big enough to fit all the junk you have to carry around, has lots of little pockets and zippers at the top.  Plus it's only $20, and you can carry it by the handles or over your shoulder. 

pink shirt: c/o shein

I love these ruffles sleeves!  It's such a cute top and comes in a few other colors too.  

cropped hoodie: c/o shein

This top is $12 and had 10,000 good reviews so I figured I'd try it.  I'm supportive of the cropped tops if they are worn with the highest leggings or pants you own.  And this one is perfect to wear to the gym with my leggings that almost come up to my boobs.  Just how I like them. 

tie dye sweatshirt: c/o shein

First cropped sweatshirts and now tie dye.  And I'm jumping right on the 80s bandwagon. This one is $14 and may be a little bright for winter, but I'm hoping it'll up my spirits since we haven't seen the sun in a million days.

SHEIN Valentine's Day

sweater: c/o shein

Chris is going to be out of town Valentine's Day weekend, so looks like this guy is going to be my date.  Good thing he's so cute!  And good thing I have some new Valentine's day outfits I can wear all next week.  I get to be in both kids classroom parties and will definitely pick one of these to wear to each one!  I love this top and it's light weight so will be great for Spring if that ever comes.  

sweater: c/o shein  tank top: shein

This sweater is so cute and cozy.  I love the little balls on the sleeves and love the color.  When I first opened this tank top I think it would've fit Addi.  But it stretches out a ton, and needs to be worn with your highest waist pants you own!  It's perfect for under cardigans or sweaters, and is only $7. 

 sweater: c/o shein

This one is my favorite of all of them.  Perfect for your kids classroom parties, or if your Valentine's Day plans entail making heart shaped cookies for your kids and putting them to bed early so you can watch tv and sit on your couch.  Plus it's under $20. 

 sweater: c/o shein

I love the neck of this one.  It's hard to tell but it's a very light purplish grey color.  It is pretty short, so pull out those high waist pants again (does anyone own anything but those these days?)

Seeing Stars

fuzzy sweater: c/o shein

Oh man.  I said I wouldn't pick another fuzzy sweater, but here we are.  Oops.  It's over-sized, so soft and only $15.  Worth it.   I love the colors on it, and of course that it feels like a blanket. 

workout top: c/o shein    shoes: c/o shein

I love these shoes! I have a lot of actual workout shoes that I love and look cute with leggings, but only one other pair of sneakers that are more fun than the shoes I wear all the time.  I know these is a dupe of the real ones, and did you know those cost over $600? What in the world??? These are WAY cheaper and I've worn them a few times and they're comfortable.   And I can always say that I "need" more workout tops.  Love the color on this one, and would be great for running outside.  Which feels a million months away. 

star hoodie: c/o shein    shoes: c/o shein

This top is definitely my favorite thing from this order.   I wanted to wear the star shoes, but thought that may be just a little much.  I ordered these shoes, as I have been wanting a pair of more high top kind of shoes.  These are perfect.  They have a little bit of fur on the top inside and are only $22. (They run a little small so if you order them go up a size!) 

top: c/o shein

Last is this this top.  Perfect for leggings or jeans and light enough to wear in the spring and summer too.  Plus it's only $15!
