Figure Flattering Cold Shoulder Dress + Weekend Fitting Room Reviews

 LOFT Violet Cold Shoulder Dress, size XXSP

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We had a good time with family this weekend since my husband's family was in town so it was a treat to eat out since we've been trying to eat in more. I got this feminine dress in the mail and I couldn't wait to style it. I love it with my summer sandals and the length which hits just below my knees looks great with a strappy sandals or slides. The darker floral print makes it perfect to transition into fall with a jacket over it and cute booties. Speaking of booties I still never received the Vince Camuto booties I ordered during the #nsale. I should really call Nordstrom about my order since I think they will cancel my order if I don't reach out to them.

I recently got a vintage King Asanuma tripod from my father-in-law and I used it to take the above photos. I was pretty pleased with how they turned out since I used my iPhone to take them. I've been waiting patiently for the iPhone 8 to come out but one of my phones is about to go. It's low on memory and I deleted photos to make space but I think I just dropped it one to many times since I'm so clumsy.

LOFT Fitting Room Reviews on www.whatjesswore.com

I was doing some returns on Saturday and I spotted a few new things to try at the store I was at.

 LOFT Ruffled Cold Shoulder Tee, size XSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

This cold shoulder tee is so soft and I love the cute ruffles on the sleeves. The fit is very relaxed around the waist so you may want to size down if you prefer a more fitted look. My online True Fit profile recommended this top for me in size XXSP but I found the sleeves of size XSP were snug on me instead of loose as seen on the model in the stock image (my upper arms have a 10" circumference). I felt that the size cutouts made my shoulders look broad so I personally passed on this top.

 LOFT Ruffle Cold Shoulder Swing Dress, size XSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I didn't give this swing dress much thought when I first saw it in store but I tried it on because I saw a few bloggers that looked really adorable in it. It's drapes nicely and fits true to size but once again the size of the cutouts for the cold shoulder style bared my shoulders in a way that wasn't very flattering.

 LOFT Twill Jacket, size XSP
LOFT Twill Jacket, size XSP (petite item no. 444401)
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

This twill jacket is new to stores first and not yet available online. I used the item number to create the direct link to it but I've also provided the item number above in petites in case anyone is looking for it in stores. The material is thicker and warmer than the sateen utility jacket I reviewed in my previous post. I like that you can unbutton and cuff the sleeves. I found that the jacket fits true to size and the sleeves are a good length on me. It's a dark hunter green color.

 Lou & Grey Cocoon Sweater Cardigan, size XS-S (item no. 446359)
Lou & Grey Cocoon Sweater Cardigan, size XS-S (item no. 446359)
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I also tried on this cozy cardigan which is another new arrival in stores first. It's so new there's no place holder item page for me to link to so I'll keep an eye out when it becomes available. It's very cozy and perfect for fall layering in place of a jacket. It runs true to size and has an oversized/slouchy fit as intended for this style.

 LOFT Modern Skinny Jeans in Destructed Indigo Wash, size 25/0P
LOFT Relaxed Slit Tee, size XS regular (review here)

I may regret this but I returned these distressed jeans for now because the distressed details do not hit at my knees as shown in the online stock image. It's a really nice wash and on trend for fashion jeans. I prefer ankle length jeans so I like the look of these jeans when I cuff them once.

I also ordered a few more items I wanted to see/try while everything is 40% off (use code OHYES) with select full-price items marked 50% off (no code needed, try INSIDER774 for $25 off $100+ full-price promotional merchandise or LOFT1 for $10 off $50+ for cardmembers) at LOFT. The sale ends in a few hours at 3AM ET. I was hoping they would have an online flash sale tonight but I guess in this case my gut feeling was wrong.



 Ann Taylor Tiered Lace Trim Tee, size XXSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I also returned this lace trim tee since I didn't like the look at the neckline with a cami layered underneath. The necklace is longer and heavier than I expected so I returned it because I wasn't sure how often I would need a large floral statement piece. I love and kept the cateye sunglasses (review here) and circle drop earrings but I returned the matching necklace especially since the one I received was defective.

 J.Crew Factory Captain Kitty Collector T-Shirt, size S
Abercrombie & Fitch High-Rise Shorts, size 25 (sold out, similar here)
Ann Taylor Gretel Metallic Leather Slides (true to size, suede version here)

I had to have this captain kitty tee the moment I saw it online. I received my $25 fall rewards from J.Crew and I went to pick up this tee as soon as possible only to find that XXS and XS had sold out so I settled on size S. Su @allaboutloft also went to try on size XXS and XS and she told me that XXS fits best (she and I generally take the same size) so I may reorder it later and sell my size S which fits me a bit loose as you can see from the below pictures. Su prefers a closer fit but I think I would prefer size XS for myself.

Update 8/14: The kitty tee is now $22.42 after discounts plus free shipping using the code BIGFAN. I ordered sizes XXS and XS to compare/try.

 J.Crew Factory Captain Kitty Collector T-Shirt, size S
Zara Convertible Bucket Bag (item ref no. 4788/204)

I also tried on this white denim skirt since they intrigue me. I was surprised that the buttons don't gap which is a good thing but they made my behind look flat so I passed on this skirt. Size 00 was a bit snug on me but I believe size 0 would have been too loose. For reference, I have a 27-28 waist and 33-34" hips and I'm 5' 2.5".

 J.Crew Overall Pocket Dress, size 0

Lastly, I tried on this overall pocket dress since it was on my list of things to try. Size 0 fit me well and this jumper would look great over a blouse or tee shirt. I'm waiting for a better sale online and will be keeping an eye on this piece as well as the chambray shirt I reviewed here.

I also ordered these items to try from Old Navy since I saw the heart print stripe blouse on @thepetitelawyer. I haven't ordered anything from Old Navy in a long time!

Sale Alert: 40% Off Everything At LOFT + Fitting Room Reviews

 LOFT Fitting Room Reviews on www.whatjesswore.com

Yay! We made it to Friday! It's a good weekend to shop since there's a sale for 40% off everything at LOFT. Use code OHYES. Valid in stores and online. Shop my sales picks here:



I stopped by my local store and tried on a few new arrivals the other night. Did you catch my update via my Instagram stories on Wednesday night?

 LOFT Relaxed Slit Tee, size XS regular
LOFT Relaxed Slit Tee, size XS regular
Ann Taylor Petra Cork Wedge Sandals (review here, now $50 off full-price shoes with DRESSITUP)
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

First up is this soft tee recommended by Su @allaboutloft. (I tend mention Su a lot since she's my online shopping buddy and fit twin since we tend to take the same size. We always chat about sizing, new arrivals and try things on for one another.) I think my local LOFT was just putting these tees out since there was only one in each color at the front of the store. I grabbed size XS to try and it happened to be in the grey color. This tee has relaxed fit that drapes well and it runs true to size. I would have preferred it in size XXS regular for the best fit but I ended up ordering size XS regular the next morning when a clutch I was stalking popped back in stock. The clutch is a dupe of the Alaïa Vienne clutch I spotted at Barneys.

Update: I just got this top in the mail. Talk about lightning quick shipping! Anyway, I was lifting my arms and noticed that you can see my sides/bra through the holes from the sleeves. A base layer is recommended to keep your skin concealed. Also, size XXS regular popped back in stock online so I'll be returning size XS regular since I reordered my preferred size.

 LOFT Sateen Utility Jacket, size XS regular

I love this soft utility jacket and I wish it was also offered in an olive color. It's slightly fitted despite no cinch waist detail to create shape. Size XS regular fit me well through the shoulders and body with room to layer but the sleeves are long on me. Note that I am usually size XS petite. The shirttail hem comes up higher on the sides so your tops will peek through on the sides. I would prefer this jacket in my usual size XXS regular for the best fit. I am holding off on getting this jacket until a 50% off sale but I may cave and buy it if I end up returning a lot of what I ordered to try. I was hoping to have the option of rolling up the sleeves but unless you have tiny wrists the button cuffs simply do not allow it.

 LOFT Twist Sleeve Vintage Soft Tee, size XS regula

Click here to view the clip from my try-on 

Su @allaboutloft asked me to try on this vintage tee. It's not available in petite sizing so I tried on XS regular which fit but the length is slightly longer than I prefer. However, it's a good length that covers the front and backside which the over-thirty prefer. I'd say this top fits true to size and it's slightly sheer if you refer to the clip I saved from my try-on.

 LOFT Lace Cuff Tee, size XSP
LOFT Lace Cuff Tee, size XSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on 

I loved this top as soon as I saw it online but I was worried that this top would fit like the lace bell sleeve top (reviewed here) from the spring. I'm happy to report that this top fits true to size and it's made of a thicker material so it's not see through at all. It feels more like a sweater than a t-shirt and it's a great weight for the fall transition. It has a sweatshirt-like texture to it which some may not care for. I thought about ordering size XXS regular for a slightly longer overall length but I'm happy with the sleeve length in petites so I took size XS petite.

 LOFT Floral Jacquard Flutter Shell, size XXSP
Click here and here to view the clips from my try-on 

I saw this top on @mrscocowyse and I had to try it on. Up close it has a beautiful floral and dot texture to it as you can see here. It is lightly lined but still every so slightly sheer. It runs about one size bigger since I was able to fit size XXSP when I am usually XS petite or XXS regular for LOFT tops. The flutter sleeves drape well on me and it's a cute layering top underneath blazers cardigans.

 LOFT Floral Lace Top, size XXSP
LOFT Floral Lace Top, size XXSP (similar here)
Click here to view the clip from my try-on 

This new arrival reminds me of the striped lace mockneck top from the fall (review here, last seen here). It runs one size bigger since sizing down to XXSP fit me well. In person the pink lace they used is more of a peachy pink which I wasn't a fan of. It is not lined so a base layer is required. I recently bought two of these silk camisoles on sale (I got them for 70% off as noted this post) and I had them hemmed so I could wear them underneath tops without tucking them in.

 LOFT Violet Cold Shoulder Dress, size XXSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on 

I just had to have this floral print dress the moment I spotted it online. I ordered it on sale last week in conjunction with a coupon code (LOVELOFT2 which expired 8/9) for about 46% off retail ($48.37) and I recently ordered the top to try. I went with size XXSP as recommended by the online True Fit profile and it fits me perfectly. The length hits right below my knees and the neckline isn't too low. The cold shoulder sleeves are interesting because it's actually a frilly loop that just drapes on your shoulders but it drapes well. The size of the cold shoulder cutout isn't too big so it's very flattering on the shoulders. Some cold shoulder cutouts are so big they make your shoulders seem broader and I hate that.

 LOFT Floral Embroidered Vintage Straight Jeans in Classic Light Indigo Wash, size 24/00 regular
Click here to view the clip from my try-on 

Su @allaboutloft asked me to try on these embroidered jeans for her and they fit true to my usual size for LOFT denim. I am usually size 25/0 petite or size 24/00 regular in their bottoms if it fits true to their usual (vanity) sizing. I cuffed them twice in the above picture but here is what the jeans look like uncuffed. I'm not a fan of wide leg jeans but these were fun to try on and the embroidered detail is very pretty. I ordered the embroidered vintage soft tee instead since these jeans are admittedly too trendy for me.

 LOFT Dolman Shirt, size XS regular

Su @allaboutloft also asked me to try on this dolman shirt for her. I tried on size XS regular which has a very loose fit as is intended for this style. It's tissue paper thin so a base layer is required.

 LOFT Embroidered Tassel Top, size XSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on 

The sale section always gives me anxiety but I found this pretty gauzy top to try on. It's very thin and see through so I'm wearing it with a cami underneath. Size XSP fit me well so I'd say it runs true to size.

 LOFT Dot Cascade Shell, size XXSP

I also came across this polka dot top that I remember from last year since I wanted it but I missed out on it (refer to my old review here and here). Size XXSP fit me but the length was a bit too short for my preference. The tag was missing and the store made a handwritten tag so this was definitely a return of a (way) past season top. One of my coworkers told me she sometimes returns older unworn items and the store will give her the sale price of whatever the item is worth at that time. I haven't tried returning older items myself for fear of getting carded and banned from in store returns (full explanation here). I usually sell my unworn items on Poshmark or send them to thredUp.

 Ann Taylor Striped Double V Sweater, size M regular
Click here to view the clip from my try-on 

I also stopped by Ann Taylor and this striped sweater caught my eye. It looked like it ran short and snug so I tried on size L regular and size M regular. Size L was too loose but size M fit me well. The material is very stretchy but I would recommend sizing up if you don't like things to be too skin tight.

 Ann Taylor Tipped Lace Up Shell, size XXSP
Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I found this sale top in the sale section. The white color looked very sheer so I tried on the black color. I was tempted to get it but I remember it was an extra 60% off sale recently so the extra 40% off was not enticing. It fits one bigger since size XXSP felt like size XSP.

I also ordered this cutout pleated full skirt to try since Su @allaboutloft recommended it. Click here to view the clip from my try-on. Size 0 petite fit me well but I need to style it and decide if it's a keeper. I love skirts but whenever I buy them I find that I don't wear them enough. I edit/update my blog posts often so I'll try to share pictures of the skirt later this weekend.

Have a lovely weekend!

How I Wear Prints + LOFT & Ann Taylor Coupon Codes

 LOFT Medallion Lacy Ruffle Yoke Shell, size XS regular

This past weekend we went to see the newest little member of the family. You might have caught a glimpse from my Instagram story. I planned out my outfits and brought along some newer items all of which included bold prints. As I was studying my flatlays I realized that I prefer to pair bold prints with neutral bottoms, jackets, shoes and accessories. Also, if I'm not wearing a dress then I pretty much live in white jeans in the spring and summer. My favorite white denim this season are from LOFT (review here) and Ann Taylor (review here).

LOFT & ANN TAYLOR COUPON CODES

I placed a couple of orders last week and my packages are arriving on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I'll provide updates via my Instagram stories if anything is worth sharing. Most recently I've been taking advantage of the lower shipping threshold and coupon codes for extra online savings at LOFT.

When no code is needed you can use LOVELOFT2 to get an extra 20% off (25% off for cardmembers) full-price promotional merchandise at LOFT. This code expires 8/9 and it's from the Summer 2017 catalog mailer. I also received a new cardmember code (LOFT1) for $10 off $50+ full-price merchandise which is valid through September 10th. Lastly, you can also use the monthly LOFT Insider code I share on this page for $25 off qualifying full-price promotional purchases of $100+.

 Use code LOVELOFT2 to get an extra 20% off (25% off for cardmembers) your full-price promotion purchase at LOFT.

In the above example, I ordered the new violet cold shoulder dress and I used LOVELOFT2 for an extra 25% off at checkout since I am a cardmember. I've been clearing my browser cookies to place smaller orders as items pop back in stock in my size. Even though it's convenient to place small orders I admittedly end up with a lot more items that I would have never ordered if I was forced to fill my cart with $125 worth of items. I'm curious how long LOFT will keep testing the minimum free shipping on their website since it debuted in early July (as mentioned in this post). 

 Ann Taylor Erica Suede Bow Sandals

Ann Taylor's flash sale for an extra 60% off sale styles ends tonight. I shared my sales picks last night on this page instead of doing a dedicated post since I just got back from a weekend of traveling. These bow suede sandals are on final sale for $23.95. I got them in size 6.5 a few weeks ago in grey for slightly more but I still haven't reached for them yet. I also never reached for the pink sunset color I won in an in store raffle so I listed them on my Poshmark closet but I may send the pink pair to thredUp. I tried to request another clean out bag but they're currently not sending new clean out bags until August 9th.

 Use code THANKS4 for an $50 off your full-price promotional purchase of $100+ at Ann Taylor.

When no code is needed you can use code THANKS4 for an $50 off your full-price promotional purchase of $100+ at Ann Taylor. Note: This code changes monthly similar to the LOFT Insider codes. I really wanted the new tiered lace trim tee (review here) so even though it was full-price I used the code for extra savings since my other full-price picks (40% off 3+ full-price jewelry) totaled $100+ . At checkout the extra $50 off was spread across all of the full-price items but in my head I was happy to get $50 off the full-price top. See the per item breakdown here.

If you're new to my blog I always share the latest LOFT & Ann Taylor coupon codes on the right side bar under 'Coupon Codes' or on this page of my blog where I also share notable shopping tips.

Happy Shopping!

Recent Purchases & Fitting Room Reviews

 Casual OOTD

Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a great start! I visited my tailor this weekend and found that they had moved to a bigger and brighter space on Newbury Street. I haven't brought them many items to alter lately because there hasn't been too many piecesI loved enough to invest in alterations. I also try my best to only keep items that fit me well off the rack.

Casual OOTD

I wore this casual outfit on Saturday and added my trusty old utility jacket from Zara since it's starting to get chilly in the mornings and at night. I never tried mules before but these were a must have when I tried them on at T.J. Maxx. They're so comfortable and only $16.99! I took the back pleat top in size XXSP since it fits one size bigger due to the pleats (see it on me here). I've been stalking these online exclusive jeans for a while and ordered size 24/00 when it popped back in stock. They arrived hemmed since the previous recipient had altered and returned the pair I received. They have a lot of stretch so I need them in the petite rise for the best fit since I kept pulling them up at the waist. I love the wash and minimal distressing. I also added this new dotted scarf for a pop of pattern against my neutral outfit.

LOFT Watercolor Dotted Infinity Scarf

LOFT Back Pleat Top, size XXSP (sold out, also available in a floral tile print I got for my mom)
Zara Utility Jacket (old)
London Rag Mules ($16.99 from T.J. Maxx, exact pair for sale on Poshmark) - true to size

J.Crew Factory Cami Dress, size 0
J.Crew Factory Cami Dress, size 0 - purchased from Poshmark
London Rag Mules - $16.99 from T.J. Maxx

Last week I mentioned in my Instagram stories that I received the wrong size for this dress which reminds me of a Lilly Pulitzer dupe. I ordered in size 0 (review here) but received size 4. The dress is on final sale but J.Crew Factory fixed the issue and I should receive the correct size this week. Meanwhile I found this past season pineapple print dress on Poshmark for $25. See this outfit on me here. I also ended up keeping the Helena denim jacket from Kut From The Kloth since the fabric is so soft. I will have to let go of one of my LOFT denim jackets to make up for this new addition.

FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

 LOFT Fitting Room Reviews on www.whatjesswore.com

I've been sitting on these fitting room reviews since Wednesday but in order to be more present in real life I have been trying to post to my blog at least once a week. Less is more but I try to pack each post with lots of new goodies to share. I share daily updates and sale alerts via my Instagram stories and I really appreciate those of you that take a few minutes out of your day to check them out!

As a friendly reminder, remember to use the code LOVELOFT2 for an extra 25% off (20% off for non-cardmembers) your full-price promotional purchase. This code expires August 9th and it's valid when no code is needed for any current promotions. e.g. Full-price items marked 'Now 40% off! No code needed'. I share the latest sale alerts and coupon codes via my Instagram stories on this page of my blog.

 LOFT Hibiscus Tiered Bell Sleeve Top, size XSP

I was on the fence about this floral print but I loved this top once I tried it on. The print really stands out when paired with white denim. It fits true to size since I took my usual size XSP. Refer to this clip for a better view of the top on me. I did not find the material to be too sheer and my coworker also got this top last week and she didn't wear a cami underneath. Click here for a closeup of the color and print.

 LOFT Medallion Lacy Ruffle Yoke Shell, size XS regular
LOFT Medallion Lacy Ruffle Yoke Shell, size XS regular (also available in blue and eyelet)

I also loved this medallion print top and size XS regular fit me well but I could have also taken my usual size XXS regular. Refer to this clip for a better view of the sizing on me. Click here for a closeup of the print.

 Lou & Grey Striped Softserve Cotton Boy Tee, size S regular

I saw this cute tee on @brynbradsher and I decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised that I liked it but I found that the length runs short and narrow in the shoulders (I have 14" shoulders) so I went up to size M regular for a loose, relaxed fit. Refer to this clip for a better look at size S regular on me. It is slightly sheer but not enough to bother me or require a layering cami since I'm wearing it with a loose fit.

 Lou & Grey Striped Softserve Cotton Boy Tee, size M regular

Refer to this clip for a better look at size M regular on me.

 LOFT Marled Sweatshirt Sweater, size XXSP

This new arrival sweater was a the top of my wishlist and it was flying off the tables at my local LOFT. The sizing runs big (I tried on size XXSP) so size down unless you prefer a slouchy look. I didn't love the sleeves on me so I passed for now but perhaps I'll try a different size to see if I feel differently. The material is cozy and not itchy. Refer to this clip for a better view of the sweater on me.

 LOFT Button Sleeve Cutout Blouse, size XSP

The button details on the sleeves of this blouse caught my eye so I decided to try . It runs true to size but the length runs shorter so I would prefer size XXS regular for a longer overall length. Refer to this clip for another look at size XSP on me. The color is cream/off white which you can see against my white jeans. It is layered so it's not see through.

 LOFT Lace Flounce Cold Shoulder Top, size XS regular

I was going through the sale section when I came across this lace cold shoulder top. It runs true to size and I would have preferred my usual size XXS regular for the best fit. The lace detail is very pretty. Refer to this clip for a better look at size XS regular on me.

 LOFT Flounce Cold Shoulder Top, size XXS regular
LOFT Flounce Cold Shoulder Top, size XXS regular (also available in two prints here and here)
LOFT Denim Flip Cuff Shorts in White, size 24/00 regular (last seen here, review here)

I missed out on this top when it first came out so I ordered it recently when my size popped back in stock one morning. It fits true to size but I didn't like how sheer the pink color was so I be returning it. I wish they used a slightly thicker polyester for this top since it's such a pretty top. I tried it with a cami underneath but it ruins the look. Refer to this clip for a better look at the top on me.

 LOFT Mixed Media Pleated Sleeve Tee, size XXSP
LOFT Mixed Media Pleated Sleeve Tee, size XXSP (review of size XS regular here)

I ordered this top as a filler when another top popped back in my size. I didn't love the fit on me despite sizing down but it is a cute and comfy top. Refer to this clip for another view of the fit of size XXSP on me. The $50 free shipping minimum has been such an enabler but I've returned a few small orders full of items I should have never ordered. If you're looking for a review of anything I haven't shared here please let me know. I didn't even bother with pictures for the items I already returned because that's how much I didn't care for them.

LOFT Striped Cami Pajama Set, size XXS regular
LOFT Striped Cami Pajama Set, size XXS regular

I ordered this pajama set that LOFT posted last week and I'm glad I did because it's currently sold out in the smaller sizes online. The material is very soft and comfortable and the top has adjustable straps and a shelf bra. I found that this set fits true to size and you can see size XXS regular on me here.

 Ann Taylor Tiered Lace Trim Tee, size XXSP

I also stopped by Ann Taylor and I noticed this adorable new arrival. It has a loose and long fit so I was able to fit size XXSP. Refer to this clip for a better view of the top on me. It was full price but I can't wait until the next sale to snap it up. I wish I was wearing a layering cami that day so I could see how it looked layered since it can be a deal breaker for me. It noticed that it's the same fabric they used for the stripe ruffle cuff blouse I reviewed here

 Ann Taylor Circle Drop Earrings

I love these circle drop earrings and they're currently on sale (40% off 3 or more full-price jewelry items) in case you're looking to add a few new pieces to your jewelry collection. I also spotted this matching necklace online.

 Cateye Sunglasses
Bottom: Ann Taylor Cateye Sunglasses - now $25

I also received these cateye sunglasses in my recent online order and highly recommend them. They look and feel like designer sunglasses and they're currently on sale for only $25! I never ordered their sunglasses before but these arrived with a case and cleaning cloth. They also fit my Asian features well since they' don't cut into my cheeks when I smile. They're a very slight cateye compared to my old Tory Burch sunglasses which my husband dislike on me.

Ann Taylor Stripe Tie Sleeve Top, size XXS regular
Ann Taylor Stripe Tie Sleeve Top, size XXS regular (review of size XS regular here)

I received this tie sleeve top in size XXS regular in both the black and striped version and it fits true to size as I previously mentioned here and here. I was steaming out the wrinkles from both tops so I had to untie the ribbon tie sleeves. Unfortunately I couldn't tie them quite as nicely as when they arrived and one side always looked better than the other which really bugged me. The black top's keyhole loop for the button closure was also really tight and I was struggling to clasp it. I ended up returning both tops since I found the tie sleeves to be too fussy for those mornings when I just want to get dressed and out the door for work.

 Ann Taylor Tie Sleeve Blouse, size XXS regular
Ann Taylor Tie Sleeve Blouse, size XXS regular (review of size XSP here)

 Caslon Swing Back Coat in nude, size XSP

I had high hopes for this #nsale jacket but the sizing is generous. Size XSP felt like size MP. The sleeves are very wide and the waist is generous but you can cinch it in to give it more shape. However too much cinching causes the pockets to lay funny. The zipper start at the middle of the waist so if you want to close the jacket you have to use the top button (the one at the tip/corner of the open shawl collar). The jacket drapes well and it's very light and soft. Both colors are light and the perfect neutral. See both colors here.

 Steve Madden Jole Embellished Slide Sandal

Lastly, these pearl embellished sandals are a must have according to every blogger I follow. I tried them on out of curiosity and they're definitely comfortable but I didn't love them on my feet. They had a wider fit and they don't have the slimming look I prefer. If you have narrow feet I wouldn't recommend these sandals since the straps will be too loose and you'll be swimming in them.

Thanks for reading!
