New season, new clothes… am I right? I’m on the hunt for a few things this season, including kick flare jeans, a white denim pencil skirt, and a black crop top. I went to Forever 21 on this mission, as it isn’t quite pay day… and I found none of these things. However, I did find a few things that I am so happy with! That’s the lesson of Forever 21 I guess– go in with an open mind.

I’m still looking for those things I listed above and if you have any ideas where I can get those, holler. In the mean time, hit up your nearest Forever and see if they have any of these killer items!

Disclaimer: 2 of these things are from the store’s plus-size section. While I am not plus size (I usually wear a 4-6) I love an oversized fit. I am also tall and most of the brand’s dresses or skirts are too short for me, but I can usually find a good length in the plus size section. A 0X in this section is the equivalent of an XL.

Casual button up

This cropped shirt is a great find. I am in love with the blush color, and the material has a silky feel. I love the retro look of a cropped button up shirt with boyfriend jeans (which Forever 21 has plenty of!) (Find it here or in the plus-size section; $15.90)

Swim cover up

My mom and I bought this to share, because we were both obsessed with it. The sheer material and fringe make it great for the pool or the beach, and the colorful embroidery makes you want to wear it to dinner with a bralette. Great option for those of us who don’t want a boring cover up! (Was not with the swimwear or coverups! Find it with the kimonos; $29.90)

Fringe sandals

Yes, I have a thing with fringe, okay? I am so in love with these sandals and I’ve already worn them. And received tons of questions on Instagram about them! (Find them here or in shoes; $22.90)

Maxi dress

Again in the plus-size section, this dress is the perfect length for me. It hits me about mid-calf, and the longer sides go down to maxi length. This material is super thin and clingy, so sizing up is not your worst idea. Also comes in pink. (Find it here or in the plus-size section; $17.90)

I have some adorable Free People tunics I love to wear in the summer. Because I definitely do not have ‘work clothes’ and ‘weekend clothes,’ I also wear these to work. These blue leggings are perfect to wear underneath long, loose tunics because it looks like you’re wearing jeans… but you’re way comfier. (Find it here or in the basics section; $3.90)


Denim skirt

Everyone needs a good denim skirt… and Forever 21 has tons to choose from. I went with a plain, true-blue one so it would go with just about everything. These run small and short, so if you order online without trying on I would get a size up! (Find it here or with the jeans; $17.90)
