 LOFT Cutoff Denim Shorts in Distressed Dark Indigo Wash, size 25/0 regular
Skagen Hagen Leather Watch (SKW2356) c/o (also available at Bloomingdales and Overstock.com)

I stopped by my local LOFT after work today and located the cut off denim shorts that I wanted. Luckily size 25/0 regular was left and it fit me really well.  Rather than wasting my time stalking it online for pop back and a better price I decided to get it in store for 40% off during today's sale. There were other items I wanted but I resisted the urge to make any further impulse purchases.

I also tried on this pretty tie neck shirt in size XXS regular as featured on LOFT's instagram. It fits true to size but it's a very billow fit and the sleeves were an awkward length on me so I folded them up twice. I would recommend layering it with a cami since it's very sheer even with a nude bra on. This blouse would also make a cute swimsuit cover up.

 LOFT Tweed Pocket Dress, size 2 regular
LOFT Tweed Pocket Dress, size 2 regular

I loved this tweed pocket dress and the regular missy size is a very work appropriate length hitting just a little bit above my knees. The cute and style are classic and material isn't too thick making it perfect for late summer into fall. The material has a good stretch to it and I love the marled texture as seen here. Size 2 regular fit me really comfortably and I'd say this dress fits true to size which means it fits smaller than the usual LOFT sizing. I'm usually a 00 regular or 0P in LOFT dresses. If you're taller then the banded waist may hit you higher making the fit more like an empire waist style dress.

 LOFT Ottoman Peplum Sweater in whisper white, size XS regular
LOFT Ottoman Peplum Sweater in whisper white, size XS regular

This ottoman peplum sweater is another new arrival that I really liked. I tried on XS regular (above) today and SP yesterday (below) and the fit comparison between the two sizes is very similar except the regular missy size has slightly longer sleeves and it's a touch longer in the overall length. I'd say this top fits true to typical LOFT sizing.

 LOFT Tiger Pintucked Top, size XS regular
LOFT Tiger Pintucked Top, size XS regular

The tiger print is really adorable (see a close up here) and it's available in this pintucked top above and sweater tank below. Size XS regular fits true to size but I didn't like the large ruffles on the sleeves so I would personally pass on the pintucked top which is also very sheer.

 LOFT Tiger Sweater Tank, size XS regular
LOFT Tiger Sweater Tank, size XS regular

On the other hand, I loved this tiger sweater tank which runs true to size. The material is very light and comfortable but not overly sheer due to the dark print.

 LOFT Stripe Long Scoop Neck Pocket Tee, size XSP

This stripe long scoop neck pocket tee fits true to size and even though the material is thin it's not too sheer. Size XSP fit me well with a body skimming fit. It's currently on final sale for just under $18. There were plenty of these tees in the sale section.

 LOFT Geo Layered Mixed Media Tank, size XS regular

I originally had my eye on the solid layered mixed media tank but they seemed a bit sheer so I decided to try on this geo pattern version instead. Size XS regular fits me pretty well in the overall length and the arm holes are too big. I'd say this top runs true to size.

 LOFT Dandelion Ruffle Shell, size XS regular
LOFT Dandelion Ruffle Shell, size XS regular

I love this dandelion print so I tried on this ruffle shell in size XS regular today and it fits true to size although it does have a slightly boxy/wide fit.

 LOFT Hydrangea Ruffled Top, size SP

Yesterday I tried on the ruffled top in this pretty new hydrangea print in SP since I couldn't find XSP to try. The fit is similar to the ruffle shell above and the wider fit is more pronounced in size SP. I would need this style in either XSP or XXS regular for the best fit/drape.

 LOFT Spotted Flounce Dress, size XS regular
LOFT Spotted Flounce Dress, size XS regular (similar style here, reviewed here)

I spotted this leopard print flounce dress today and I tried on size XS regular for size. It fits similar to the dot flounce dress I reviewed here. There's no waist definition so it was very loose on me and not very flattering. I love the print so might try it on in petites another time for comparison before I completely discount it.

 LOFT Pintucked Flutter Dress, size SP

I wanted this pintucked flutter dress for a while now but I kept culling it from my shopping cart in favor of other items since I really don't need another black dress. I couldn't find XSP to try so I tried on SP today for sizing and the top was too loose so I'm pretty sure size XSP would fit me best. I'd say this dress fits true to size and the pleats and flutter sleeves are very flattering.

 LOFT Eyelet Back Tank, size XS regular
LOFT Eyelet Back Tank, size XS regular

This eyelet back tank is another top I wanted but kept on putting off since I hadn't tried it on in store. The length is a bit long on me in XS regular and the arm holes are borderline generous so I believe I need it in XXS regular or XSP for the best fit. The white is sheer so I tried on the black color. I wasn't completely in love with this top and while it's a nice to have I think I can live without it.

 LOFT Clean Tee, size XS regular
LOFT Clean Tee, size XS regular
LOFT Isla Pants, size 00P

This clean tee is a nice basic if you're looking for a dressier t-shirt option for work. It's also available in this starry print and bloom print. Size XS regular fit me pretty well so I'd say it fits true to size. I was struggling to find a neutral bottom to wear with my other try ons so I tried on the Isla pants in size 00P which was snug across my 33-34" hips so I couldn't zip it up since the rise is a bit lower making for an awkward fit across my hips/waist. The fabric has no stretch. I personally never wear wide leg pants like this because I don't have the thighs to fill them out. Size 00P had a 28" waist.

 Ann Taylor Eyelet Peplum Top, size XS regular
Ann Taylor Eyelet Peplum Top, size XS regular
Zara Flat Chain Sandals in gold (old from last year, item no. 2660/001, similar here, here and here)

I tried on this eyelet peplum top and size XS regular fits a bit loose so I would need my preferred size XXS regular. I'd say this top fits true to size. Despite being unlined the fabric wasn't too see through but a layering cami is definitely recommended given the little laser cut details.

 Ann Taylor Stripe Pleated Skirt Dress, size 00P

I tried on this stripe pleated skirt dress in size 00P and immediately fell in love with it but I did the math and realized that it was just a little over $60 after discounts so I ordered it online and used the code GIFT10 for an extra $30 off of $60+. Even though I paid for shipping as you can see below I still ended up getting this dress for more than the current sale price and I still ended up getting it for 70% off the retail price of $139. The fabric has some stretch to it and I'll probably try to pair this dress with one of my thicker belts instead of the skinny string belt it comes with.

 Ann Taylor Deco Jacquard Ann Cardigan, size XS regular

Lastly, I spotted this pretty deco jacquard Ann Cardigan in the sales racks and size XS regular fit me perfectly. It's actually a thicker cardigan that would be perfect for the fall and winter. I have it on my wishlist to purchase at a later date. Hopefully my size won't sell out any time soon. It's currently on sale for $30 after discounts.

Thanks for reading!
