Today's Shopping Trip and More

My "haul" - Flowabunga print Inspires and headband plus a Heathered White Mudra tank.

True to life color of the black/angel wing Flowabunga Inspire crops

Last week was crazy busy for me with the end of the school year so I wasn't able to make it to the store. I finally got a chance today and ended up getting Inspire Crops and a Bangbuster in the black/angel wing Flowabunga print. I also got a Heathered White Mudra Tank. The Flowabunga print has a sepia look to it since the contrast color is angel wing, an ivory, instead of stark white. It's a funky effect that makes the print look otherworldly in person. The material is silky soft and opaque and the print provides great camouflage for thigh imperfections.

Not too many stores have posted photos of these Inspires, which is a shame since they are pretty wild in person.

I was also super curious to try on the new Mudra tank since I had heard good things about it. The material is really nice - soft, thick, and opaque. The tank is nice long and has a figure flattering cut. I took my CRB size but I also tried the size down since it does fit on the loose side. I would love it if this material was used in a long sleeve top.

I tried on the Embrace crops in the black/Curious Jungle and really liked them. I don't need another pair of luon crops but if you are in the market, check them out. The fit is similar to Wunder Under crops but with a nice wide waistband and I think, more comfortable.

I tried on the Flowabunga multi Wunder Under crops. They are silky soft but "fade" a bit when stretched since the back of the print is white. The print made me feel like I was wearing pajama bottoms.

I tried on the Rolling with My Omies pant in the Burlap print. I thought they fit a roomy TTs and were comfortable. They're not the prettiest pant but if I got a good markdown on them I'd get them for kicking around the house.

I tried on the Get It On Dress and liked it more than I thought. This wouldn't be a bad dress at all except for the giant slit down the back. In the right position people could peek in and see everything. The slit reduces this dress to just a swimsuit coverup.

I also tried on the Get It On Blouse and was surprised how heavy it was for a UPF top. I didn't care for how short the sleeves were. I thought the fit was TTS. If I could get this on a smoking markdown I could probably find a use for it. ;-)

I also tried on the new Swiftly tops in Neon Pink, Heathered Bruised Berry, and the new Heathered Gray Scoop Neck SS and LS tops. I didn't care for either the Neon Pink (too bright) or Bruised Berry (have that swiftly color already) but was really tempted by the heathered gray scoop neck SS and LS Swiftlys. I already have the color in the tank. If I had a money tree I would have bought the LS since it's so pretty and soft.
