4 Solid Color Shirts For Women

There are certain days you want a casual, relaxed outfit. Solid color shirts can go with anything and everything!

Surprisingly, finding solid color shirts that hold up and are not super thin can be difficult to find. I have four different shirts from four different brands to share with you today. None of these shirts are very expensive and are all comfortable!

All these shirts ran true to size. I’m currently a size medium in a t-shirt, and except for the Mossimo they all are a medium.

Solid Color Shirt #1

Mosimmo Brand – These shirts from Target are soft, fit well, and surprisingly hold up very well for the affordable price tag. They have several different colors as well as stripes.

If you don’t shop at Target right now, keep reading….I have more options!

Solid Color Shirt #2

Gap Vintage Wash Crewneck Shirt – I’ve gone back and forth on my opinion of this shirt. It’s the priciest of all the shirts on this post, and it is one of the thinner ones. However it has a really tight weave, I don’t think it will pill at all and has held up very nicely so far. I don’t have to wear a cami under it, and I would love to get some other colors.

I purchased it during a half off special, and right now they still have sales running on all the different colors.

Solid Color Shirt #3

Liz Claiborne White T-Shirt – It’s terribly difficult to find a white t-shirt that is thick enough to wear without a cami under it. I was hopeful that I had found it with this one, but I feel better wearing a cami under it.

This is a soft shirt and it looks nice with the French White lace cami from Deborah & Co.

And sometimes I have to just break out into a fun pose. ­čÖé┬á

Solid Color Shirt #4

A.N.A Boyfriend Tee – I love the sleeves on this shirt! It makes a basic shirt look a little different. It comes in a huge variety of colors. I think it’s one of my favorites, just because it has a slightly different look.

So there you go, four perfectly good options for solid colored shirts!




Petite Ladies – Skirts and Dresses For The Shorter Women

I have to admit, I’m thankful for my height. At 5’5″I’m not petite and I’m not tall. However there have been times that I have looked longingly at the outfits that shorter ladies have been able to wear. There are so many cute dresses out there that are just an inch or two shorter than what I feel comfortable wearing.

That being said, I hear petite ladies mention how hard it can be to find maxi skirts or dresses that they are not tripping over all the time. I was just out shopping and found a few things for petite ladies that I wanted to pass along!

If you are petite (meaning shorter than the average person), definitely don’t just shop in the petite section! Check out all the knee length length dresses or skirts that will be mid length on you. The above the knee skirt will be knee length for you!

Here are some petite length skirts that I fell in love with, but the good news is that most of these are available in regular length as well! And most of these are on sale for some great prices!

I was shopping in the petite section at JCPenny for shirts (yes, I actually bought some petite shirts! My sister convinced me they looked good!), and saw these maxi skirts. These are a great find for you petite ladies! They have several different colors and patterns such as solid and stripes, and the quality of Liz Claiborne brand is great!

These skirts are available in misses and petite lengths, so make sure you select petite length when checking out.

I’m in love! The Chap brand from Kohls is a really good quality brand and normally these petite tiered skirts are out of my price range at $79.00. I don’t always see them on sale, but right now they are half off! These are available in petite and regular length, and look so beautiful for summer with sandals. If you are tired of wearing the same old t-shirts with skirts, try a chambray shirt with this skirt.

This chambray shirt comes in petite and regular length, and you could just roll the sleeves up for warm weather like they have shown in the picture.

Here is a cute knee length knit skirt that my sister tried on. The color wasn’t right for her, but I loved it! The red would be great for the 4th of July, and they offer 4 different colors, including a floral that is beautiful! Once again, this skirt comes in petite and regular length, so make sure you choose the correct length when purchasing.

Are you looking for a little nicer dress in petite length? I fell in love with this maxi dress, and it would be gorgeous with a shrug over it. I would wear this to church, to a wedding, party, or even a nice date night out with my husband!

I almost tried this dress on but I had spent enough so I put it back. It’s a really pretty maxi dress, and it’s a little more casual for summer days. You could wear a short sleeve halftee under it, or wear a halftee tank if you want it sleeveless. The material is wrinkle free which is always fantastic with young children sitting on your lap. Yes, I speak from experience. I always have a child on my lap at church!

Here is another great causal maxi dress that would be great with a short sleeve Halftee under it.

Finally, don’t forget about the coral dress that we sell at Deborah & Co. It would be mid length on a petite person, and would be super cute!

Petites ladies – share your own suggestions for how you shop for modest skirts and dresses! I know other ladies would really appreciate it!










A Month of Fashion For June!

Welcome dear June! We mark a half a year being gone already, which is incredibly hard to believe. The first half of June has brought about great changes for our family, some good, some very difficult to walk through. However I feel like the second half of the year is going to be positive!

For the month of June I have something exciting planned! We are going to focus on fashion all month long! There will be reviews, tutorials, and of course fun giveaways! I’m looking forward to this, and it will be extra fun to include some great 4th of July outfit options on the blog early enough for you to purchase them if you want.

If you want to make sure you see all these posts, sign up for our email newsletter here (which also gets you access to a great series on getting dressed each morning, and access to a private FB group!).

I will also be sharing in my VIP group for my Lilla Rose customers all month long with live videos, tricks and tips, and the goal is to share every weekday for the month. But life happens, so that is my goal but I’m not going to stress if I miss one day. ­čÖé If you are a customer of mine, or brand new to Lilla Rose and would like to learn more, make sure you ask to join the group!

The June flexi of the month clip was just released! If you like natural stones, the Takara is the clip for you!

Get ready June…it’s the perfect month to work on sprucing up our wardrobe and making sure we are ready for summer and vacation!


Do You Struggle With Knowing What To Wear?

Do you ever struggle with knowing what you are going to wear for the day?

Do you stand in front of your closet for 5 minutes and pull out one item after another, and you feel frustrated that nothing is matching?

Do you long for variety in your wardrobe, yet you want to keep things simple?

I’ve been working on creating more of a capsule wardrobe for spring and summer, while still keeping all my fun extra items, like floral dresses and lace skirts.

Basically I just want a capsule wardrobe for the weekday, something I can cycle through and create outfits that fit, look nice, and can coordinate together.

I’ve been wearing the long stretch denim skirt, the short stretch denim skirt and the Rainbow denim skirt quite often, and alternating tops with them.

Now that it’s warming up I’m wearing sandals with them, my Converse shoes, and my Toms slip ons.

Last night I grabbed two basic solid color shirts when we were out shopping to add to my weekday collection. I’m so excited about them, because I picked two colors that will go with everything! A lovely bright mint green and a deep lavender color. I have scarves that will match them, flexi clips and jewelry!

I really love capsule wardrobes when people are super creative about changing up their outfits, and mixing up the items in the capsule wardrobe. I have a resource that will help you do this!

I’ve gone through a GYPO challenge before, which stands for Get Your Pretty On. If you struggle with knowing how to put outfits together, these challenges are fantastic!

I was really excited to see that the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle included a Stay At Home Mom Casual Wardrobe Basic Builder in this year’s bundle! This downloadable resource offers cute outfits that are all put together, from shoes, jewelry and clothes, and gives you a list of what you need to have for this capsule wardrobe.

Now not everything on the list is what you might like. But it’s so easy to substitute items and still pull it off!

For example, 4 pairs of jeans are required. If you don’t want to wear jeans, just substitute it out with a few denim skirts or a white skirt in place of the white jeans!

A chambray dress is on the list but I don’t like the one they have. Instead I would pick a Chambray dress from eShakti, or look at local thrift stores.

I like this dress, you can add sleeves to it on their website and even customize the length!

With just a few changes this guide could be a great way to get you used to a capsule wardrobe!

This guide is normally $29 if you purchased it from the GYPO website. But for just one dollar more you can purchase the entire Ultimate Homemaking Bundle for $29.97 and receive 106 resources and some really awesome physical bonuses! 


Don’t forget about the free flex clip, or the free $10 gift certificate to Deborah & Co. you will get if you order the Homemaking Bundle through me! You could use the $10 to put towards getting a new denim skirt to use for this challenge! Wahoo!


The Homemaking Bundle is only available through this Monday, so you don’t want to put it off!┬á Order the bundle and then fill out this google form to receive your bonus offer from me!

If you don’t like the idea of the wardrobe challenge, at the very least get this bundle for the Temper Toolkit course by Lisa-Jo Baker (it’s amazing!), or the Nester’s Cozy Minimalist ┬ácourse! Both of these are worth the price of the bundle alone, or more!
