Recent Outfits & LOFT Fitting Room Reviews

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.

Thanks for reading!
