Hi friends! Today I’m bringing you a try on from my very FAVORITE place to buy clothes these days, Carly Jean Los Angeles! CJLA is a small business based out of Malibu California and creates versatile easy to wear pieces that are designed to match everything in your closet! You know I love simplicity, and over the last year Carly Jean has been my go to place to get clothes because of their easy, classic, and pretty silhouettes.
You can click the product names to be taken directly to the piece and Carly Jean Los Angeles website to shop. CJLA is also running my FAVORITE Black Friday sale through this weekend and you can get 30% off with the code BF30! Let’s get this try on started!
I am wearing a Large in every single one of these pieces! The sizing is consistent with CJLA which is one of my favorite parts of the brand. Sometimes I will size down if their try on’s say a piece runs really oversized but I’m usually a large all the time! If you need help with sizing, the gals that work at CJLA are incredibly helpful, and they offer free returns so you can exchange for your right size if something doesn’t work out!
Basics- You NEED them!
Carly Jean is known for their basic pieces that can become the core for a capsule wardrobe. I rotate their basic tees weekly, even daily sometimes, and they have held up so well over the years. The basics are made of a soft, squishy fabric that isn’t see through AT ALL which is what sold me. If you’re going to get anything on sale, get the basics! These don’t go on sale often because they are so loved!
I have to start with my very first CJLA piece, the boyfriend tee. This shirt is AMAZING. I have it in 3 colors and I am constantly rotating it with cardigans, jackets, and by itself in my closet. This shirt gets heavy use in my wardrobe and it still looks brand new 2 years later! I wear it with leggings, slacks, or jeans! It’s incredible and you need it while it’s 30% off.
This tee is similar to the boyfriend tee, but not as loose and long. I realized after awhile that I needed something more fitted to tuck with jeans or slacks for work and this was perfect! I have this baby in a few colors as well, and I am definitely wearing one at least once a week these days!
My favorite pieces
I wear my Evelyn ALL THE TIME! I even wore it to get my wedding dress last year! I love this piece because you can dress it up or down, and it’s stood the test of time. Every time I wear my Evelyn, people ask where it’s from. I wear this layered under jackets, with slacks or jeans for work, and with leggings on the weekend! I’m SO sad to tell you that this item is sold out, but I’m linking it anyway because I hope it restocks! This cardigan is so oversized it’s like wearing a blanket and I am obsessed with it. I hope it comes back for you to shop!

This piece is so unique and soft. I love wearing this with jeans on the weekend or with leggings for road trips. It also looks good with a denim jacket layered over it! It fits great into a capsule wardrobe because it’s not plain, but the pattern makes it interesting and easy to pair with other things you might have. I also think this would look so great with black jeans and booties.
I am in LOVE with this sweater. I am really picky with sweaters and this one is everything I like! It is thick, but breathable. It’s soft, and a little oversized. They have a few colors and sizes left so snag one because this is a fall and winter necessity!
I wore this to my brother’s birthday dinner and got tons of compliments! I can’t get on the corduroy pants trend that is back, but this jacket is lightweight and the texture adds a fun element to any outfit! I have it layered with one of their basic boyfriend tees in this picture!
The Sterling is similar to the evelyn, but the fabric is amazing! It’s thin but not see through and I love the way it hangs when I’m wearing it. I have it in rust and blush and the rust color is so beautiful for fall. I wear this layered with a denim jacket sometimes, and it can transition to winter with a scarf or spring with a pretty skirt!
The Rhea was the first sweater I bought from CJLA last year and it has remained a favorite in my closet. I love how oversized it is and the speckles in the fabric. It’s one of those sweaters CJLA keeps around because so many people love it!
This kimono looks SO cute with jeans and mules for fall. It’s on clearance and there is just a few sizes left. I wore it last week and a friend said to me “this is the definition of your aesthetic”. That was the best compliment ever because I seriously feel like this piece is me in fabric form. It’s fun, whimsical, and I’ll be holding onto it forever!
