    Jill! I love love love these haul videos. I got so excited when I saw you had one up. Love that Nike hat, the Hane’s tee, the brown checked blazer ,and I actually love that first linen blouse too (bows on sleeves included). Such a bummer that it is so uncomfortable!
    I would skip the Zara flats. I like the ones you have better. I do like the wrap skirt to throw on with a cami! Regarding the belt bag…I just don’t love them. You look good in everything so you can pull it off. I’d get a Gucci one tho. LOL. I think the Gucci or LV is what makes the belt bag cool.
    About the sweatpants…I love the ones you had on at the end! I just grabbed a pair of black joggers from Uniqlo that I really like. Nice fabric, and great high waisted fit for $20. I have a few pairs of joggers from Aritzia that I love. Also, I wear the TNA high rise leggings all the time around the house. They are my favorite things to throw on for lounge and errands, etc. You would rock them!!
    Also, just be you. You are fabulous the way you are. Like you said…If there are a few people out there who feel the need to criticize something, they can just not watch. Their loss!

    Hope the feedback helps.
    XO! Gina

    I really enjoy your videos, particularly because is your “charm”. Also, as you’ve been doing more styling/ haul videos, I have been liking a lot of the items, I was wondering how tall you are? I’m quite short, and it would be helpful to get an idea for sizing. Thanks!

    I love these haul videos! Keep doing them!! You are totally my favorite- I actually saw a picture of you on Pinterest and clicked though to find your blog and am so glad!! I just love how real you are- do not censor yourself!!!

    I like the mules, but I’m biased because I bought them the other day (inspired by the other white mules you have, which I do think are a bit nicer), but they do look great on you. Love the videos. Do more please! Would love to see a haul for investment pieces/classics e.g. classic black blazer, LBD, black pants, pumps etc.

    And I love the fact you’re unapologetic about being YOU. Women are forever saying sorry, and having to conform to some ridiculous idea of modesty and passivity and I love that you’re not.

    That first Zara top looked so much better on you than me, I got it in the XS as well and it is so huge on me somehow, such a shame, I wish I’d sent it back! Their sizes are sometimes so big. Loved that ring too by the way! The Shopbop sales are the best!

    ugh been following you forever and your vids are my favorite thing! love the f bombs – f anyone who says it isn’t “ladylike” and tries to make you change. my mother does the same thing! lol!
    i actually really prefer you holding the camera as opposed to it being on the stand. you have a steady enough hand that it doesn’t feel shaky plus we can see the entire look!
    as for athleisure sweatpants – i am the same as you, 5’5, and have found that all of my joggers from aritzia are great. i’m sure you’ve looked there, but i swear by all of their pants. i feel the quality is good, and the fit is always a little bit more tailored, which make them chic enough to dress up.
    quick q – i am trying to find a good bomber jacket!! any suggestions?
    love your blog as always!

      Thanks for such a lovely comment Katie! Agreed, Aritzia seems to have the best ones. What’s your pricepoint and colour choice for bomber? Shoot me an email [email protected] and I will help!
