been a longtime fan of
Oasis Clothing, but I’ve never took the leap of faith and
purchased their clothes until Poor Little It Girl sent me a $100 giftcard to Oasis.

Buying clothes online for a petite body can be challenging, especially at unfamiliar stores.  I prefer to try clothes in the store so I know my size before I buy online, but sometimes that is not an option.  In those situations, you need to just have faith and judiciously measure your body and trust the posted measurements for the garments.

I couldn’t be happier with my purchases from Oasis – thanks PLIG!

This top is one of the pieces I got with the $100 giftcard!  It is the perfect beach vacation top – loose, long enough to cover up a bathing suit, and has flattering nautical stripes!

Do you ever buy things, then go home and realize you bought all the same things?  Everything I bought from Oasis had nautical stripes – clearly I like stripes . . . a lot!

Top – Oasis

Skirt – H&M

I seem to gravitate to stripes more than any other pattern – at least that is what my closet would confess.  Stripes strike a balance between fun and professional.  I could dress this top up with pencil or an A-line skirt easily for work.  Now that I’m a working girl I try and only buy clothes that can work well at the office and happy hour.

When traveling, it’s important to pick pieces that can be versatile.  This top looked cute and stylish tucked into this H&M nude skirt for brunch, and worked well by itself for covering up my bikini to explore Seaside, Florida.

If you need a suggestion for a last beach trip to end the summer, then head to Seaside, Florida!  It’s an intimate community with beautiful homes and a gorgeous beach that isn’t overcrowded by spring breakers.

I don’t normally spend a lot of money on bikini’s, but I decided to splurge for my Labor Day weekend trip and picked up this fun number on sale at Victoria Secret.  I loved it because it came with removable straps (like many of their bras) which adds more versatility.  Have you noticed a trend in my beachwear?  I prefer corals, blues, reds and versatile pieces that work well for multiple purposes!

How did you spend your Labor Day Weekend?
