Last weekend I made a big change and cut my hair short. I have hyperthyroidism so I shed a lot and my long hair was getting really thin and wispy. I tried to get a long bob (lob) a few years ago but after a failed attempt and with our wedding this past September I opted to grow out my hair. Prior to my appointment I had some time to kill so I amused myself at Zara and Anthropologie and came home with the following new things.

New #hair 💇 and trying on my new @zara cape top (item no. 7385/001). FYI. The small buttons in back are a tad tricky. // 👉 Sign up once at www.LIKEtoKNOW.it and LIKE this photo to receive an email with product details to these @bananar

 J.Crew Sloane Cap Toe Pumps (old, (similar here)

I love white and peplum so this Zara cape top came home with me to mull over some more. I really like the asymmetrical peplum hem. I'm not sure if it's practical for how I normally dress but it would be a great top for going out in the summer. Note: The small buttons and button holes in the back can make it very difficult to button up on your own unless you're very flexible. I can clasp my fingers together behind my back. ;)

This @zara bird print #dress is a perfect for a summer wedding (item no. 2202/543). Wearing size S. FYI. The back is a lower U shape. @zara_daily #zara #zaratrf #LVoe #maraisbb #louisvuitton #haircut #lookbook #salondefi
Zara Printed Dress (item no. 2202/54), size S
J.Crew Sloane patent pumps (old review, similar here)

The bird print and bow ties detail of the sleeves of this dress caught my attention on the racks. Size S is a bit loose on me but size XS was too short. Hopefully my mom can do a quick hack to easily fix the fit of this dress for me the next time I visit home. The back has a lower U shape but it should still cover your bra. I plan on wearing this dress to a wedding later this year.

Yesterday's random purchase. 🐱 #Cat trinket dish from @anthropologie. See a closeup of it on my snapchat account. 👻 // 👉 Sign up once at www.LIKEtoKNOW.it and LIKE this photo to receive an email with product details. @liketoknow.it w

I went to Anthropologie to look for this trinket dish after using the store finder. The spindly legs crack me up and I love the polka dot print inside.

@Jcrew Factory scalloped trim #dress and tuxedo camisole (both in size 00 regular). Currently 30% off. 👯 I would need the scalloped dress taken up at the straps for a better fit. See my most recent #snapchat for a #fittingroom update.  // :point_r

On Wednesday my husband and I went to see Kingsman since we had to reschedule the showtime due to last Sunday's storm. Our closest theater is next to a J.Crew Factory so I popped in and tried on this scalloped dress and polka dot top that I've been eying. Size 00 regular fit me decent but I would need to take the straps up about an inch for a better fit in the bust. Alternatively I'll wait for the next sale to order the petite version to try on for size since alterations of any kind are a hassle.

Review: LOFT New Arrivals


LOFT is offering 50% off select full-priced items and an additional 50% off sale items. No code required. See my picks from this post earlier today. Ann Taylor is offering 30% off full-priced styles with code STYLE and Banana Republic is offering 40% off with code BRHAPPY (ends tonight). Spring and summer clothes are my favorite so I am coveting a lot of pieces and waiting for a better sale to pull the trigger.

LOFT Bold Stripe pocket blouse, size XXSP

Last year I bought a similar striped shirt from LOFT and it's been one of my favorite shirts year round. Unfortunately I snagged the polyester material in the front and while it wasn't noticeable it still bothered me so I was very happy when they came out with an updated version this year with a high low shirttail hem. After seeing that size XXSP ran large on StylishPetite here I decided to give it a try myself and I was relieved that it fit me perfectly. I usually dislike button tab sleeves but this one stays up and doesn't slip and unfold. This year's version in size XXSP (RIGHT in the below flat lay) fits the similar to last year's size XSP (LEFT) and as a bonus the polyester fabric is less sheer.

Obsessed with this year's @loftgirl bold #stripe pocket blouse (RIGHT). 👯 The hi-lo shirttail hem is very cute and the poly material is slightly thicker compared to last year's version which was very sheer (size XSP on LEFT). I found that it runs
Last year's size XSP (LEFT) and this year's version in size XXSP (RIGHT).

LOFT Marled Knit Bateau Sweater, size SP

Update 2/16: I loved this marled knit bateau sweater so much I got it in two colors online since my local store didn't have this item on sale. Strangely enough the regular version was 50% off but the sales associate wouldn't give me the discount on the petites version even though I showed her it was on sale online.

Lou & Grey marled cowl tunic, size XXS
Lou & Grey Marled Cowl Tunic, size XXS regular

It's difficult to capture the true color of this Lou & Grey marled cowl tunic sweater but it's definitely light blue and white. In direct sunlight the color is as shown in this outfit on the LEFT side of the picture with my coat on since I was standing near a window. It's washed well (I wash my clothes in cold and air dry) but given the tiny loops in the fabric it reminds me a bit of a washcloth. As another reviewer noted the little loops may be prone to snagging but so far I've been safe from velcro and other snag prone objects.

LOFT crystal leaf necklace
LOFT crystal leaf necklace (sold out, now available via Nordstrom)

I purchased this crystal leaf statement necklace after seeing it on this LOFT store's Instagram feed. I liked the grey stones which will match a lot of my outfits. It comes with a two inch extender to accommodate different necklines. I'm wearing it at the longest length above and below. Note that the hinges can become locked so you may have to fidget with it a bit to untangle the jeweled sections and get it to lay flat. I prefer my delicate pearl pendant for every day wear so I haven't bought a statement necklace in a long time but this one doesn't have that metallic smell that some costume jewelry have (e.g. Forever 21 jewelry).

This @loft tweed #stripe tennis #dress is currently 40% off. Runs large since I'm wearing size 00P (review and measurements can be found in my post from 2/12). Also please check out my sales picks #ontheblog. 👯 #linkinprofile @liketoknow.it www.li

I find that it's really helpful to follow some of the local LOFT stores' Instagram feeds. You get a sneak peek of when new arrivals hit the stores and helpful styling tips. For example, I really love how the LOFT at the Mall of Louisiana styled this tweed stripe tennis dress here. I took this dress in petites but it runs really big and fits wide and boxy. Here are the measurements* of size 00P:

16" chest pit to pit
17" waist
19" across the bottom where the flounce begins
32" total length

*All measurements taken with the garment laid flat.

LOFT Polka Dot Stitchy Sweater, size XXS regular

I wore this Lou & Grey shawl jacket a few times as an additional layer over my sweaters and I finally washed it tonight. I was super nervous to pull it out of the washer but it looks good (I washed it in cold water) and I currently hung it up to dry. We have a front loading high efficiency washer in case that makes any difference. It doesn't look misshapen unlike some of the online reviews I read and I'm hopeful it will dry without any shrinkage. Update 2/16: Lou & Grey shawl jacket washed well and I wore it out today (see my outfit here).

These two #cute scalloped #dresses (tried on 0P in both styles) from last year are back and available via @loft outlet! It was 40% off yesterday and the pink one on left was $89.99 so I assume the right one was probably the same (apologies but I forgot to
LOFT Outlet scalloped dresses, both in size 0P

If you missed these two scalloped dress from last year (see here and here) then you may want to pay a visit to your local LOFT outlet. Both dress are available in regular and petite sizes. Last weekend they were both 40% off and the ticket price was $89.99. I find that LOFT outlet tends to run one size bigger than regular LOFT. I also spotted yet another cute Eiffel Tower t-shirt below. There is a BOGO sale for these t-shirts almost every time I've stopped by. I believe the price tag was $34.99 so you can grab one of these cuties for yourself and a friend.

J'adore @loft. My sentiments exactly. 💕 Another #cute t-shirt from #LOFToutlet. #wellplayed 🙌

I decided to keep this Forever 21 abstract grid-patterned top and I just wanted to do a quick update and share that it washed well on cold and air dried. It didn't shrink although the material looks shorter when wet. Due to the unfinished hem on the sleeves and neckline I washed it inside a delicates bag to prevent snagging and fraying.

Zara Top With Embroidered Cuff (item no. 7288/290), size XS

I bought this Zara Top With Embroidered Cuff in ecru and navy blue since I feel in love with the lace details on the sleeves. It also came in a bottled green color that color is currently sold out online. I adore a simple, flowy top and this one is from their Trafaluc (TRF) line which means that it runs smaller than regular Zara tops. Size XS sleeves measure 23" long and the length of top is on the shorter side at 22". It's 100% polyester and I am hoping it holds up well in the wash (update to follow). The tag specifically says do not dry clean. Update: The top washed well in cold and air dried. Also, if you want this top I found an exact dupe which is available here.

Redeemed my Discover cashback for this #cute @mybkr momo #waterbottle. 💕 @liketoknow.it www.liketk.it/RC6I #liketkit #mybkr #amazonprime

I recently redeemed my Discover cashback rewards for this cute bkr water bottle. It's small, holding only 16 ounces, and it's just a glass bottle covered in a cute silicone sleeve so I probably wouldn't have gotten it if I had to pay $35 upfront. In any case, I love the white color of the Momo Heart color but after washing it some water got trapped between the silicone sleeve (which seemed difficult to remove to attempt to dry off) and the glass so a darker sleeve option may be a better choice. The opening/spout is very small so if you like ice cubes with your water then you'll have to buy a special ice cube tray.

I haven't been on a Forever 21 kick on purpose since I mostly shop at LOFT but after not buying anything from them for ever a year I gave in and placed two orders in October and November. Ever since then I've been on a vicious buying and returning cycle because their sizing is all over the place and that was the main reason I had stopped shopping from them for a long time. They do have their fair share of cute, quality items but I wish they would give you your money back so that you're not honey potted into shopping with them in order to use up your stack of store credits.
