I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! My husband's family stayed with us a few days and it feels so quiet without them around. I didn't have a chance to online shop until today when I was able to snag the bag I got for my mom for an additional 30% off plus free shipping from Coach Outlet (similar here). I also stopped by LOFT but I ended up ordering with their online Cyber Monday sale that just went live earlier tonight.

I recently tried on the popular lady day coat in 2 regular and it fit me everywhere except the length was too long.

LOFT Reindeer Fairisle Sweater, size S regular

This reindeer fairisle sweater isn't something I usually would try but I decided to try it on because I wanted to see what it would look like on. I'd say it runs true to size and I grabbed size S for a more relaxed fit. The regular missy size is the perfect length on me covering enough of the front and back for my comfort.

LOFT Polka Dot Shoulder Button Sweater, size S regular

This polka dot shoulder button sweater was on my wishlist so I tried on S regular for a more relaxed fit. I'd say this sweater runs true to size. The grey dots are so cute against the burgundy color. I already placed my order prior to writing this post but I may order this sweater when I take another look. Otherwise I'll wait for a future sale to get this sweater at a better discount when I can stack the insider code.

LOFT Blurred Fairisle Sweater, size XS regular
LOFT Blurred Fairisle Sweater, size XS regular

I wanted this blurred fairisle sweater but XS regular was the only one left in store to try on and it runs about on size bigger. I thought it made me look pregnant with the oversize fit so I passed. I don't think the fit of this sweater does me any favors in this size or in a smaller size so I crossed it off my wishlist. I didn't find it to be itchy the few minutes I had it on and I liked the soft blue against the light grey.

LOFT Petite Rabbit Pattern Sweater, size SP

I know this is supposed to be a rabbit pattern sweater but for some reason I noticed one cat on this particular sweater (refer to the right picture). I don't know if that was a fluke but it's a really cute sweater. I usually get regular missy sizes for LOFT sweaters since they tend to be too short for SP fit me lengthwise although I found the sleeves a bit snug. I'd say this sweater runs true to size.

 LOFT Scallop Lace Dress, size 0P
LOFT Scallop Lace Dress, size 0P (review of both 00 regular and 2 regular here)

I ended up returning this dress in 00 regular (review here) since I didn't love the lace but I found and tried on size 0P for comparison above. The waist placement is too high in petites (it's a few inches above my belly button) but the waist is 28" like size 00 regular. The lace sleeves are also a little bit more snug and a few inches shorter in the petite sizing.

This Skagen watch (just purchased today) is low key and perfect for every day wear. This Harlowe & Graham slub textured jacket is a great layering option (see my review here).

Happy holidays and greetings from Philly where I'm visiting my family until Thanksgiving day. I feel fortunate that I got to spend time with my family this year and I'll also have time to see my husband's family. I'll be flying back to be with his family on Thanksgiving and couldn't believe that I managed to score a great price on a last minute flight back to Boston.

I have major commitment issues when it comes to a watch so I don't own one (my Toy watch from a few years ago broke) but I've been looking at this Skagen watch (34mm) and a similar one from Nordstrom Rack (28mm). Not related to Amazon but I've also been looking at this drive mini watch (23.5mm) by Tous. My dream watch the Cartier Santos GalbeĆ©.

Ann Taylor - Get 50% off EVERYTHING until 1PM. Use code CELEBRATE. Valid online and in store. Shop my sales picks here:



I liked this windowpane camp shirt but I wish they also offered it in white with black grid lines. Size XS regular fits me pretty well (if I had to be picky about sizing then I'd want to try on size XXS too for comparison). I passed on this blouse since I prefer light blouses over dark blouses.

I wanted this scallop lace dress the moment I saw it online since it has sleeves. Below I'm wearing my old lace dress from 2013 on the left and this year's version with sleeves on right.

LEFT - LOFT Scalloped Sleeveless Lace Dress, size 0P from 2013 RIGHT - LOFT Scallop Lace Dress, size 2 regular
LEFT - LOFT Scalloped Sleeveless Lace Dress, size 0P (old from 2013, review here, similar here)
RIGHT - LOFT Scallop Lace Dress, size 00 regular

I originally tried on the scallop lace dress in 2 regular in stores (refer to the below picture) and realized I would need to stick with regular missy sizing  so that the dress would sit at my natural waist. Petite sizing would be too high and more of an uncomfortable empire waist on me. Size 00 regular has a 28" waist and fits me comfortably with room to eat a meal. Luckily the lace sleeves were also not tight and skimmed my arms. Size 2 regular on the other hand was a few inches too wide all over. I'd say this dress runs about one size larger. I'm on the fence about returning it since I don't love the lace they used as much as I thought I would. On the other hand, it's a great dress to have for formal events but I have so many clothes that I save for a rainy day and never wear or barely wear. I have longer arms (I usually take 23-24" sleeves) so if you're petite and go with the missy sizing for the waist placement then the sleeves may be more bracelet length on you.

LOFT Starry Long Rib Trim Tank, size XS regular

I love the tiny stars on this starry rib trim tank and I hope petite sizes will be available soon/later. The color is light blue in person but it comes across as white in their online stock image. I tried on size XS regular which fits like a basketball jersey length so I'm pretty sure I need this in XXSP since it runs really long and oversize in regular missy.

LOFT Starry Pajama Set

I want all of the cute new pajama sets from LOFT (available in polka dots, starry print and gingham print) but I wish they were available in petites. Hopefully size XXS won't sell out in at least one of the styles but I'm holding out for 50% off or better. I can't see myself paying a lot for clothes that I'll only wear at home but they would make cute presents. The starry print (pictured above) is grey and not off white as pictured in their online stock image. See the gingham version on Kate.

Madewell - Get 25% off your purchase. Use code CALMDOWN. Plus get free shipping on all orders. Sale ends 11/29 at 11:59PM ET. In-store discount as advertised. Online discount valid on items marked "25% off with code CALMDOWN."

LOFT Fitting Room Reviews & Flash Sale Alert: 50% Off Select Full-Price Styles & Extra 60% Off All Sale Styles

Lou & Grey Specklestripe Tunic Flatlay

Get 50% off select select full-price styles and an extra 60% off all sale styles at LOFT. Use code FLASH. Sale ends 11/23, 10AM ET. Shop this sale and earn a $25 cash card for every $50 you spend now through 11/30 (redeemable 12/1-12/11). Note: I usually update the latest LOFT promotions and stackable online codes on this page if I can't blog about it right away.

Shop my sales picks here:



I've been getting a lot of wear out of this Lou & Grey specklestripe tunic (review here). I'm so sad I missed out on the pink striped version and I'm still hoping it will pop back in my size and the color I want.

Lou & Grey Specklestripe Tunic, size XXSP
I ended up pairing it with an old pair of Old Navy Rockstar distressed jeans contrary to my flatlay.

LOFT Medallion Flippy Shirtdress, size XXS regular
Lou & Grey Cobblestone Moto Jacket, size XXS regular (sold out, review of size XS regular here)
LOFT Medallion Flippy Shirtdress, size XXS regular (currently sold out, review of size XSP here)
Wolford Satin Touch 20 Tights
Vince Camuto Franell bootie in charcoal grey (review here)

As I mentioned in a previous post, I picked up this medallion flippy shirtdress when it popped back in my size. I ordered size XXS regular for the extra length after trying on size XSP (review here). I was struggling to style this dress and I thought I would return it since I wasn't sure how much I would wear it. I ended up copying LOFT's stock image by pairing it with dark tights and booties and really liked the look. I wish I owned a cropped moto jacket to go with this dress. It has a loose fit that drapes really well due to the flowy fabric so for the same look I'd stick to your usual LOFT size.

LOFT Relaxed V-Neck Sweater in morning tide blue, size XS regular
LOFT Relaxed V-Neck Sweater in morning tide blue, size XS regular (review here)
Ann Taylor Twilight Leaf Print Scarf (old from two years ago)

I own this relaxed v-neck sweater in white (review here) which I absolutely love but the morning tide blue is more sky blue in person than the light powder blue pictured on the website. I've been pretty good about not buying the same thing in multiple colors and I would recommend the white color over all of the other colors.

LOFT Striped Turtleneck Sweater, size SP

I got this striped turtleneck sweater for 40% off during this sale and can I just say that I'm a bit annoyed that it's now 50% off? Size SP is a very relaxed fit which I prefer to hide my holiday food baby but I probably could have gone with size XSP. I'd say this top fits true to size.

Lou & Grey Signaturesoft Open Cardigan (size XS regular) & LOFT Striped Turtleneck Sweater (size SP)
Lou & Grey Signaturesoft Open Cardigan, size XS regular

I love all my Lou & Grey pieces for how well they wash and last over time. I got this signaturesoft open cardigan for 50% off during the last mystery flash sale. I tried it on in XS regular in store and ordered XXS regular which I hope will fit since the sleeves are really long in the size I tried on. My package arrives this week while I'm away so I'll be able to try it on when I get back to Boston.
LOFT Fall Flutter Top, size XXSP
LOFT Fall Flutter Top, size XXSP (review of size XSP here)

I didn't want this fall flutter top since I don't think the coloring suits me but I only tried it on again for sizing after seeing Kate wear it in the solid white version here (also available in a plaid version here).  I believe I need XXS regular for the extra length after trying on XXSP and XSP. The top runs about one size bigger and has a short, boxy fit.

LOFT Geo Clean Tunic Shell, size XXS regular
LOFT Geo Clean Tunic Shell, size XXS regular (review of size XXSP of the solid clean tunic here)

This geo tunic shell runs about one size bigger and it's very long in the regular missy size so I bought the black (review here) and whisper white color in XXSP during the last flash sale. I like that these camis have a thicker strap that will cover your bra straps and they're so convenient for layering all year round.

Happy shopping!

LOFT FLASH SALE ALERT: Get 50% Off Your Full-Price Purchase

11/18/15 OOTD
Lou & Grey Shawl Jacket (old, similar here which I purchased tonight in XXS regular)
LOFT Ink Dot Rib Trim Tank, size XXSP (old review here, I just purchased the current version in XXSP but it is much longer and available in white, black and this star print)

Happy Wednesday (or Thursday by the time I hit to publish this quick post)! LOFT is having a "mystery" flash sale. Get 50% off your full-price purchase with the code THANKS50. (Thanks to Sara for the heads up since I've been buried in chores as I prepare to be out of town in a few days.) Lou & Grey exclusions apply. Also get an extra 40% off sale styles. Sale ends 11/19, 10AM ET. I usually update the latest LOFT promotions and stackable online codes on this page if I can't blog about it.

Note that you can spy most of my recent purchases on the right side bar. I have some fitting room pictures and reviews (like this one I shared on Instagram) and hopefully I can update again soon. I have to wake up early for work so I really should be in bed right now.

LOFT Plaid Infinity Scarf & Keds Crashback Wool Grey Slip Ons

I love the neutral colors of this plaid infinity scarf recommended by Megan. You can see it styled by Megan, Sara and Kay. It's not too bulky and I didn't find it to be itchy. I also scored these Keds crashback wool grey slip-ons at Nordstrom for $29.96 on sale. More sizes available at Keds but at a higher price. Sizes are very limited online so check your local Nordstrom for sizes in their sales racks. My helpful IG friend Janet also informed me that they're $12 and change on clearance at Kohls. They run true to size (I took my usual size 7) but I found them to be snug across the top of my slightly wide feet where the elastic gores are. They will require some breaking in but I'm sure they'll be a closet favorite across seasons.

Thanks for reading!

LOFT Purchases Collage 11/13/15

Get 40% off everything including sale styles at LOFT. Use code SHAREIT. Valid in stores and online. Sale ends Sunday 11/15. Shop this sale and earn a $25 cash card for every $50 you spend now through 11/30 (redeemable 12/1-12/11).

I ordered this scallop lace dress in 00 regular since 0P was one of the first sizes to sell out (the lace sheath dress from Ann Taylor looks like another gorgeous option). I also ordered this medallion flippy shirtdress in XXS regular (I tried on XSP in this post), this striped turtleneck sweater in SP and this relaxed v-neck sweater in XS regular in morning tide blue (I already own it in white, review here).

I am also coveting this Lou & Grey twist woodland knit sweater (update 11/14: the color looks more like speckles of sea green/sea foam than light blue in real life) and how cute is this plaid infinity scarf and hi-side split sweater? Check out the sweater and scarf on Megan here. She is one of my favorite LOFT girls and she's always super helpful if you have any questions.

Natural lighting is so hard to come by in the fall and winter especially inside our condo so I recently found a spot at work where I can take a quick snapshot of my daily outfits.

I received these cute cat flats from Shein and they run about one full size smaller. I've been trying to break them in but so far I only got them to stretch out by about half a size at most. I normally wear size 7-7.5 depending on the brand. I received them in EUR size 37 which fits like US size 6 based on how much my feet are cramped up inside the shoes. I really like them but I believe I need them in EUR size 38. The soles have a strong odor but I'm hoping the smell will go away as mentioned in passing by another online reviewer.

Below is what they look like on on my feet:

Lastly, I saw these Sorel Winter Carnival Boots boots today at Costco for $79.99. I felt that they ran about half a size bigger after trying on my usual size 7 so I took size 6.5 instead. There's a lot of room in the toe box so they'll be very comfortable with thick socks although they are made for negative temperatures. I noticed that they're still full-price everywhere else so this is a great deal if you're looking for functional winter boots. They were featured right up front when I walked into my local store along with hunter green Hunter original tall rain boots which were also $79.99. Also, did you know that Sorel sells replacement boot liners?

In previous winters I tried wearing rain boots but even if I doubled up on socks I was still chilled to the bone. I've never tried a fleece insert so I'm not sure if that would solve my problem but rain boots do have great traction. If you're looking for dressier boots with good traction in the soles then these Tory Burch Sullivan boots were a splurge from last winter. Refer to my review here. Unfortunately, this year this style only come in suede instead of the supple leather which held up really well despite the winter slush. I do try to wipe my boots down to prevent then from being eaten by the harsh road salt. The over the knee boots pictured at the top of my post are made of more delicate leather material so you really need to avoid the salt or wipe them down as quickly as possible if they come into contact with road salt and slush. I'm so lazy when it comes to spraying water repellent on them so I'll try to do that this year.

Banana Republic Cece Scarf & Lou & Grey Sunset Sweater (size XXS regular)

I really love this Cece plaid scarf from Banana Republic (see how I tied in in this post). I've been getting a lot of use out of it and I appreciate its versatility. It even matches my Burberry bowpark raincoat perfectly (pictured below). I was visiting my husband's family this past week/weekend and our godson loved the scarf too except that he had a different idea for it such as using it as a sheet over his head and pretending to be a little ghost.

I also love this Lou & Grey sunset sweater which I ordered in XS regular. Originally I was going to return it because it runs pretty big but I couldn't get over how cute the oversized look was so I kept it. It's been unseasonably warm for fall so I was able to wear it alone without a jacket.

I still can't get over how incredibly soft the relaxed v-neck sweater (review here) is and now I want the light blue (morning tide blue) color. It's washed well on cold and air dried. It's also currently on sale for $39.50 and you can stack it with the insider code (INSIDER219) for an additional 25% off. Details below in my LOFT sale alert. If you're looking for a non-petite fit reference then please check out size S on my Instagram friend Sara here. Note that Sara is tall (5'11") while I am petite (5'2 1/4").

I received this grey long sleeve lapel coat from Shein and size XS fits me pretty well from the front view but I think I should have sized up to size S for a better drape as pictured in their stock image. Since I took the smallest size I think it drapes oddly on me from the back view causing the shirttail hem to flare out (refer to this picture here). The button tab sleeves are also on the short side (I wore it rolled up twice but didn't fasten the sleeves because they would be too short). Size XS is better suited for someone under 5' and with a more slender build if you want it to fit the same as the stock image. I wouldn't call really this a coat since it's the same weight as your typical blouse.

I really wanted this specklestripe zip tunic in the other color but it sold out quickly. It was on sale for a really good price when I ordered it and it's currently $16 after discounts so I got the grey color. I ordered it in XXS petite. The sleeves were a bit snug and a tad short for me (refer to this picture here) so I would prefer size XSP for a more relaxed fit. Against my better judgement I was itching to wear this top today so it's my fault for being stuck with the wrong size. Note: I originally stated that I purchased this top in XXS regular but that was in error.

FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

LOFT Medallion Flippy Shirtdress, size XSP
LOFT Medallion Flippy Shirtdress, size XSP

I've been looking for this medallion flippy shirtdress in petites but the petite sizes sold out very quickly online. I was surprised to find XSP to try on at the LOFT in Newporte Centre. This location actually had plenty of sizes when I checked but there was no sale so the dress didn't come home with me. The dress is very flowy and comfortable and the medallion print looks gorgeous in real life. You can also refer to this short clip of my fitting room try-on that I saved from my snapchat here (username: whatjesswore).

LOFT Striped Button Sweater Dress, size XXSP

Next up, I tried on this striped button sweater dress in size XSP (pictured here) but I found it to run big so I tried on size XXSP (pictured above). I'd say this dress runs about one size bigger and it's cut generously in the waist and hips. It's a great dress for the fall since the fabric is thicker.

LOFT Geo Stripe Flippy Dress, size XSP
LOFT Geo Stripe Flippy Dress, size XSP

I also tried on this geo stripe flippy dress in size XSP and I found that it fits true to size but the sleeves were a bit snug. The pattern on the fabric creates a bit more interest and it's a great dress for work.

LOFT Mixed Media V-Neck Tunic, size XSP
LOFT Mixed Media V-Neck Tunic, size XSP

This mixed media v-neck tunic is a beautiful top but the v-neck is a bit low on me even though you can't tell from the photo. It runs true to size but the sleeves were a bit snug in the forearms (refer to my bent arm holding my iPhone) so I didn't even bother to try on size XXSP. See it on Melissa here.

LOFT Striped Signature Cardigan, size XS regular
LOFT Striped Signature Cardigan, size XS regular

This striped signature cardigan is a new arrival and I took size XS regular since petites would have been too cropped on me. It's a thin cardigan but it will pair well with many tops and it even looks good worn alone and buttoned up.

LOFT Puffer Vest in moonlight ivory, size XS regular

I've been looking for a thin vest and I was curious about the fit of this puffer vest. Size XS is a very relaxed fit on me so I should be able to wear thicker layers underneath (see it unzipped and from the back view here). The arm holes aren't too small and constricting and the regular missy length is perfect hitting right at the hips. I wish it accentuated the waist more but it's a great basic vest that will layer comfortably underneath a coat. It's currently on sale for $59.50 and you can stack it with the insider code for an additional 25% off.

Lou & Grey Striped Signaturesoft Cowl Tunic, size XS regular
Lou & Grey Striped Signaturesoft Cowl Tunic, size XS regular

This Lou & Grey striped signaturesoft cowl tunic has been on my wish list but it's been excluded from the recent promotions due to being a new arrival. I finally found and tried on size XS regular to assess the fit and I would definitely need it in petites due to the longer length which ended up looking more like a bib on me.

LOFT Striped Shoulder Button Sweater, size XS regular
LOFT Striped Shoulder Button Sweater, size XS regular

Lastly, I tried on this striped shoulder button sweater and size XS regular fit like a tunic on me and the sleeves were very long and so I folded them up once. I would prefer the petite sizing for a slightly shorter length. It's made of the same material as the striped button sweater dress pictured above. You can also see this sweater in size XS regular on Jen here in the navy color. I noticed that the outline of my jeans shows through the material so pairing this sweater with seamless leggings would probably be a better choice.
