Jules in Flats - April Outfits

Jules in Flats - April Outfits

Hey everyone!  Happy Weekend!

Spring has truly sprung in Vancouver, which means you never know what the weather is going to be like, but you should always plan on there being a chance of rain!

So all of the online shopping I told you about last week arrived!!  My Gap order included these mules, this bikini top and this gingham top from Old Navy which are all keepers (yay!).  From American Eagle I'm keeping this top, but sending back the bikini bottoms and this top as it was way too short and boxy :(.  The bikini bottoms I actually liked but I'm trying to find a pair that doesn't cut into my sides too much (hello, muffin top!) and these definitely did.  I went on a mad online search for bikini bottoms after those ones didn't work out but finally decided to just wait until closer to summer when (hopefully) my muffin top has shrunk and I'm feeling more confident about trying on bikini bottoms in general.  I have a couple of pairs that mix and match with a bunch of tops right now that fit fine, and a couple of one-pieces so I'm covered for now.  And how adorable is that Gap top?!  It's so adorable, I can't wait to wear it!  Normally I would have ordered an XS, but they were sold out so I ordered a Small and it fits fine ... so just an FYI if you are planning on getting it!  The mules I ordered in a size 7; my typical size is 6.5 and they fit great with a tiny bit of room at the heel, so I'm not sure if the 6 would have been too small.  The gingham top from Old Navy I ordered in XS and the fit is slightly oversized.  I find Old Navy typically fits on the larger size so I always order the smallest size!

Unfortunately the romper and pleated midi skirt from H&M are returns, and I haven't decided if the mules are slightly too big or fine.  The pleated midi was a size too small and the poly material looked and felt cheap.  The romper was really cute and I wanted to love it, but I didn't think it was that flattering and I didn't like the slits down the arms.  Plus, where am I going to wear that?!  I'd rather hold out for a jumpsuit (or something else) that I really LOVE.  The mules feel a bit big, but they are sold out online now so I can't try on the smaller size for comparison ... what should I do?!  They're just a plain kind of beige mule, not that special, but super versatile for Spring I feel!  They would replace the beige flats I'm wearing with the pleated midi skirt above, which are overdue for retirement!  Lastly, (but not leastly), this striped top from Hollister arrived and is a keeper.  It fits oversized and is so soft!  I ordered my usual size (XS) and it has a nice, relaxed vibe to it.

What is everyone up to this weekend??

Last night I went to hot yoga, which was a nice, sweaty way to end the week, until a poor guy in front of me passed out in class!!  It was really scary, he fell forward onto his head (from seated) and started bleeding from his head wound, and convulsing!!  The teacher tried to tell us he was fine but I think he might have had a seizure!  Anyways, it was upsetting to say the least and I hope he is doing OK!

Today we had our new dishwasher and microwave delivered (bright and early!) and I've just been reading, doing my nails and blogging while T teaches himself a new board game.  Tonight we're meeting friends for dinner and maybe a movie at their place!  Tomorrow ... no plans but maybe brunch and some open houses?  LOL We'll see!

As always, thank you so much for reading!  I hope you all have a great weekend!

See the blogs I link-up with here!


  1. Swimsuit shopping is the worst! I found a one piece that I feel comfortable in this year, but I think I am at the point where I won't be wearing a bikini ever again! How scary about the guy in hot yoga! I hope he is ok too!

  2. Cute outfits! Love the floral skirt and printed jeans! I don't like swim suit shopping because it's so much of trying on and on while nothing ever fits! Lol 😂
