Carolee Jewelry Giveaway + Get 70% off Select Full-Price Items at LOFT

 Carolee Claire single pearl and crystal pendant
Anthropologie Nestled Ring Dish (sold out, from 2012)
Custom engagement ring inspired by the Tiffany Soleste design

I'm a firm believer that less is more when it comes to fashion and while I appreciate a pretty statement I prefer to keep my daily jewelry to a minimum. Longtime readers have probably noticed that I usually wear a delicate pearl pendant, open heart bracelet and classic pearl studs (however my ears are usually hidden since I'm headless). I have a fondness for Tiffany jewelry and my favorite necklace is the Tiffany Signature pearl pendant but a similar, affordable option is this Claire single pearl and crystal pendant by Carolee.

Carolee offers affordable options for fashion jewelry and bridal jewelry which you can find at major department stores like Bloomingdale's, Lord & Taylor and Macy's. I actually wore their gorgeous Lucy crystal bracelet during my wedding reception last year (please check out my wedding post here). We were last shopping last minute at Bloomingdale's for my mom's outfit when I came across this bracelet which paired well with the sparkly waistband of my reception dress.

Here are some of my recent fitting room try-ons:

From the above picture, I tried on the floral swing shell in size XXS regular at home. Unlike size XS regular (review here) which I had tried on in stores the smaller arm holes caused a slightly unflattering drape across my bust and armpit. I couldn't get over the slight fit issue and returned it otherwise the top runs true to size and I like the pretty large floral print.

 LOFT Cropped Cardigan, Fringe Festival Top, Tech Stretch Skinny Ankle Pants in Marisa Fit
LOFT Cropped Cardigan, size XXSP
LOFT Fringe Festival Top, size XXSP
LOFT Tech Stretch Skinny Ankle Pants in Marisa Fit, size 0P
Zara Flat Chain Sandals in gold (item no. 2660/001, currently on sale for $39.99, review here)

I tried on this cropped cardigan in size XXSP last week when I was visiting my family in PA. It doesn't look like anything special on the hanger but it was really cute on. I live in cropped cardigans during the spring and summer because the office is always really cold with the A/C blasting. I also tried on the tech stretch skinny ankle pants in size 0P after I received size 00P in the mail which was too small. Size 0P fit me much better and I love the ankle length which is the perfect length for sandals, flats and heels. My mom also liked these pants so I got them for her as well. Silly me thought the sale would hit the website next so I held off on getting the items I tried on in store but I ordered the entire outfit tonight. See a live fitting room clip of this outfit that I saved from my snapchat (username: whatjesswore) here.

 LOFT Fringe Festival Top, size XXSP

I didn't love this fringe festival top on its own because it's very wide but at the same time I love the pretty feminine details. I think it looks best with the cropped cardigan over it since it highlights the details of the fringe and crochet lace. A regular length cardigan would cover up everything about this top except for the details in the front.

 LOFT Colorblock Shirred Back Tee, size XXSP

I adore the pinkish grey hue of this colorblock shirred back tee which I tried on in size XXSP since it runs about one size bigger. I really wish I bought this top in store because I somehow forgot to order it as part of my online order tonight. LOFT customer service will not edit your order for any reason after you submit it which is such a disappointment. Here is another view of the top so that you can see the true color better. I tried it on again yesterday just to be sure I still loved it (it was full price yesterday in store or I would have brought it home with me).

 LOFT Rib Trim Fluid Tee, size XSP

Next I tried on this rib trim fluid tee and I was impressed that it wasn't a boxy fit and draped well but I didn't like how it's a bit sheer since you can see the outline of my black bra. I'm sure a nude bra would have the same issue anyway.

 LOFT Crane Swing Back Sweater, size XS regular

I tried on this adorable crane swing back sweater in size XS regular and the length is a bit long in the back so I ordered it in XXS regular which should fit me perfectly. I thought I would like the crane fluid pocket shell but after seeing it in store the material of the sleeveless shell wasn't as white so they're a similar print but not the same fabric. I also tried on the ottoman high waist shorts in size 0 regular but they failed the sitting test since the pleats result in very unflattering pooch when you sit down. They're really darling when you're standing upright though. The Bali jacquard riviera shorts also caught my eye with the pretty subtle pattern but they didn't have my size to try on.

 LOFT Summer Eyelet Dress, size XXSP

Lastly, I tried o this summer eyelet dress in size XXSP out of curiosity even though I usually avoid dresses in this style. The backside has a lower flounce/drop hem that looks really juvenile in my opinion and the total length is very short hitting me mid thigh. The dress runs at least one size bigger since I was able to slip into size XXSP easily while I usually take size XS/0P at LOFT.
