Shade Clothing: perfect for any kind of weather

My 3-year-old and I both enjoy cloudy, rainy days. She calls them "shady days."

Inevitably, we will don our boots and head out into the weather (provided it's not pouring). The baby will be on my back and my 3-year-old will run up ahead, overjoyed by the sparkling droplets and the billowing clouds. It's refreshing, really...and good for my soul.

I could go for another "shady day." I can't complain a bit though. Today, it was in the 60s and sunny - just about perfect, if you ask me.

I took the opportunity to put on a few new tops that Shade Clothing sent me for review.

First, the 3/4 Sleeve V-Neck Cardigan (on-sale for $27.99):

Clearly, I'm all about the oranges lately. I love that deep pumpkin color - so perfect for fall! I wasn't sure if this cut would "work" on my body type, but - now that I see the pictures - I like it.

Up next, the V-Neck Placket Top (also on-sale for $27.99):


I am always a fan of navy blue - it's such a classic, true color. You really can't go wrong with it. The military pockets, zip-up front, and banded bottom make this top immediately stand out from the pack. I do wish that the zipper went down just a tad bit further so that I could nurse in this top without having to lift from that bottom, but that is a minor complaint. Overall, it's a great casual piece.

P.S. You've gotta watch the Shade Clothing staff dancing to "Thriller" at a recent Halloween party. It's awesome and I so want to dance along. In fact, next time that I'm in a big group, I may play the song and invite everyone to dance along. Friends, this is your advance notice.

  1. I love this top & your pictures turned out great. Thought for a second your pictures were the promo pictures. I like Shade Clothing's classiness. Their materials and cuts are neither busy or tacky. Thanks for sharing the cool. I wonder how long it took them all to learn that and rehearse? :)

  2. I've never heard of this company, but I am impressed by the variety of cute clothing. After perusing the site, I already have several items I would love to own! Just not sure our budget would agree ;-)

  3. Very cute clothes. I've heard the name Shade a few times lately and I agree that they have stylish and comfortable-looking items. I like that pumpkin color for fall too, it just blends into nature so well this time of year.

  4. Shade clothing looks really cute. I haven't gone and bought any post pregnancy clothes yet. This would be a very nice way to kick start my wardrobe and help to remind me that I am no longer pregnant.

  5. I love the orange color this season too. I kept seeing it when I'm out, and finally broke down and bought a pumpkin-colored sweater. And I adore it! Shade carries such a wonderful selection!

  6. I wanted to tell you the other day that this v-neck placket top looked really cute on you. I cant remember where we were, but anyway it was cute.

  7. I love the modestness, is that such a word? The modestness that shade clothing have. The shirts come down nicely around the hips, not above the hips. The scoop necks dont go... "scoooooop" neck into the clevage. It goes to say, I really like the V-Neck Placket Top:)

  8. I really like that first top, it looks great on you.

    Between my daughter pulling on my neckline and my cats accidentally putting a claw through the bottom of a top my clothes take a beating.

  9. Oh, all these clothing posts are getting me off track. I must go do something productive...or at least engaging with the boys.
    Super cute outfit, by the way.

  10. I love the navy top, it looks really good on you. I have to say that I love sunny days, I think they're coming to an end so I'm enjoying them while they're here.

  11. Both are very attractive! I love the pumpkin color right now too. Its one of my favorites. And blue is a classic fave too.

  12. I love that this company specializes in stylish AND modest clothes, and they seem to have a really nice collection.

  13. I really love a 3/4 sleeve on any top because it covers your arms, but keeps the sleeve out of messes (and the dishwater), so I think it makes a top truly versatile. Thanks for the chance to win the v-neck placket top, I do agree with you about a slightly longer zipper, but it looks like a great top for an wardrobe!
    My FAV top style is a v-neck, 3/4 sleeve, tee shirt....I think it combines all the most comfortable and flattering features that a top could have.

  14. How cute is that shirt! It looks like it'd work well as a layering piece for fall. I'm trying to update my wardrobe, and it feels like the clothing this season is just not what I'm looking for.

  15. I love Shade Clothing. I wore a lot of their shirts through pregnancy. They were my favorite--stretchy, soft and flattering. I'm ready for some post-baby wardrobe additions, though.

  16. I love Shade and having been watching a few pieces from their fall collection and trying to decide if they work for my nursing wardrobe!

  17. I love the V-Neck Placket Top, that is my color too! I love it when I find new and affordable online clothing stores (not good news to the hubby though, tehe!) I love their maternity line, reason enough to get pregnant all over again!

  18. Oh that top is so pretty! i love it! it looks gorgeous on you btw, i love shade clothing, they have some of the most fun and comfortable looking clothing items i've ever seen. Blue navy would be my color of choice as well, i love navy blue :)

  19. I checked out the website and I like that most of their pieces are classic things with just a little change. I always like it when I can find something that is basically a plain t shirt but has a little extra.

  20. I am with you on the fall colors! I love the shade of pumpkin and navy is a great classic. The only trouble with navy is I have issues with wearing blue on top with blue jeans. I think it tends to make me look just like a big blueberry!

  21. I've never even heard of Shade but their clothes look really nice! I love rainy days too. We have to walk to the bus stop every morning so rain or shine we go outside. :) I really need to invest in some rain boots for my daughter though. Her feet get soaked. I've been having her wear her crocs with no socks but it's starting to get colder now. It's tough to keep my son (who has to go to school) from getting soaked from the puddles too! I've made a compromise with him that he can get as wet and muddy as he wants on the walk home in the afternoon. :)

  22. Those are cute! I've never heard of Shade before. Honestly, I've never heard of a lot of places before...I pretty much never go shopping unless I really really need something or I get gift certificates for Christmas. I'm a little desperate for cute, fashionable clothing right now.

  23. Shade Clothing makes such great looking and quality
    pieces! I love the dark pumpkin color, also! It is definitely a great color for wearing this time of year. The shade does look good with your hair color.
    Thanks, Cindi

  24. I am always up for trying new clothes. I think they all look wonderful. Unfortunately, I don't get to purchase nice, new clothes for myself very often.

  25. I would love to try this, I really need new clothes after baby #4. I LOVE your style Stephanie, which is saying something because I have the worst time finding clothes that are both attractive and modest.

  26. I love Shade. The classic silhouettes, the fun colors and the comfort. At the moment I'm loving their Drape front cardigan. I practically wear it everywhere.

  27. I love Shade!! Their basics make my closet so much more functional, not too mention they have some of the cutest pieces ever- and all are modest. Love it!!!

  28. Very cute! And I love that pumpkin color on you. I'm not sure it would work on me, but the navy would.
