Zara Convertible Bucket Bag (item ref no. 4788/204)
It's slowly starting to feel like spring in Boston. I've certainly been shopping for spring like it's not winter temperatures and snowing outside. Luckily the new snow fall we got didn't really stick and yesterday was even in the high 50s which was the perfect weather for a Sunday stroll.
I finally caved and bought these flower topped flats from Talbots last weekend when I had a $20 coupon. I had wanted these in pink but that color went faster than I anticipated. I also wish I waited to purchase them because they're currently on sale for a better price of $76.99. I'll have to see if Talbots honors price adjustments. They fit exactly like the suede version I purchased in the fall (review here, last seen here) so if you have slightly wider feet like me then you will find them comfortable. They also run true to size for me but they may fit half a size larger for some.
I also purchased this pretty cherry blossom scarf since I'm obsessed with this print which I also have in the dress version. FYI. I ended up returning the Bandolino Opalni sandals since I decided my feet are slightly too wide for the style. My arch was hanging off too much and not supported by the middle of the shoe which is more narrow. On the hunt for cute scalloped sandals, I ordered these Restricted Kailani sandals from DSW after seeing them in store at Francescas yesterday. I had a $5 birthday coupon and I used the code NOJOKE for an extra discount off two pairs (code expires 4/6). I ordered the tan and cognac colors and my order total came down to $64.90 for two pairs.

Daniel Wellington recently gifted me their new classic petite mesh watch to try and this is the first watch of theirs where I am extremely pleased with the fit and comfort of the lightweight band. The mesh strap is easily adjustable for smaller wrists and I love the clean watch face. I opted for rose gold but I would have loved the silver version too.

Yesterday I stopped by my local store to check out the latest new arrivals for spring. I also stopped by the store the previous weekend but I hadn't had a chance to post all of last week due to having family in town. Here are all the items I tried on starting with the two items I purchased.
Ann Taylor Modern Super Skinny Ankle Jeans in carnival wash, size 25/0P (similar)
I typically dislike off the shoulder tops and I don't own any but the classic stripes won me over for this top. It runs one size bigger so I took size XXSP. It has a puffy fit but it still looks cute on. Refer to this clip for another view of the fit on me. They also offer this style in a beautiful lily print and it's 100% cotton.
LOFT Botanic Cold Shoulder Dress, size XXSP
I've been lusting after this dress since I saw it in the catalog. Only the regular missy sizes are available for purchase online. I found petites at my local store yesterday but the sizes were selling out quickly so I snapped up the dress with my LOFT rewards. The petite style number is 434147 if you want to call your store to check for the in store availability.I took size XXSP since it does run big and size XXSP fits like size XSP. Refer to this clip for another view of the fit on me.
LOFT Botanic Lacy Split Neck Blouse, size XXSP
LOFT Sateen Five Pocket Legging Jeans in Marisa Fit, size 27/4P (old/sold out)
This botanic print is so gorgeous and I was hoping this lacy split neck blouse would work but the v-neck is so low on me so a layering cami would be required. I tried it on in XXSP compared to the solid version below which I tried on in size XSP. It runs at least one size bigger with a slightly boxy but flowy fit.
LOFT Lacy Split Neck Blouse, size XSP
LOFT Twill Utility Jacket, size XSP
If you're in search of a versatile utility jacket then I would highly recommend trying this one from LOFT. It fits true to size and fits like a shirt jacket.
I adore this new peony print henley shell and I found that it fits true to size. I tried on size XS regular here but I tried on size XSP in the striped version here and I need my usual size XXS regular or XSP for the best fit. The peony print is also available as a scarf, maxi skirt and dress (also on my wishlist).
LOFT Striped Tulip Sleeve Tee, size XS regular (this style is also available in solid colors)
I like the tulip sleeve details on this cute top but size XS regular was really long so I would need this top in size XSP for the best fit and shorter overall length. It fits true to size with a slightly longer overall length.
LOFT Floral Lace One Shoulder Top, size XS regular
This one shoulder top is so gorgeous with the daisy lace detail on the flounce and the smaller sizes sold out quickly but yesterday I came across size XS so I tried it on for fun. It runs true to size but it has a puffy fit like the striped off the shoulder top I reviewed above. I would need size XXS for the best fit. Refer to this clip for another view of the fit on me.
LOFT Daisy Chain Lace Tee, size XXSP
I love the pretty daisy chain lace but this top has a generous wide fit. size XXSP fits like SP so I would suggest going down one to two sizes for this top. The material in the back is thin and see through. It's also available in a dress which I reviewed here.
LOFT Floral Lace Shoulder Sweater, size XS regular
I wanted to love this floral lace shoulder sweater but I just didn't like it on me and I found that it is slightly sheer. The lace details on the shoulders are gorgeous and it runs true to size so I would need size XXS for the best fit.
LOFT Vineyard Stripe Swing Dress, size XXSP
I previously reviewed this vineyard stripe dress here in size XSP. This dress is one of those LOFT sizing conundrums where size XXSP and size XSP fit very similar. in fact I had to check the tag again but size XXSP definitely fits like size XSP.
LOFT Lace Topped Tee, size XXS regular
This lace topped tee is sold out online but I came across size XXS regular in store yesterday. I had wanted this top in pink but it sold out so quickly earlier this season. It fits true to size to slightly larger for a relaxed/loose fit. I didn't love it on me so I passed and now my curiosity is satisfied (I deleted the bookmark off my phone so I could stop stalking it).
Lastly, I tried on these jeans at Su's request since she was interested in the new version in the darker wash. I found that size 25/0P fits true to my usual size for denim at LOFT.
Thanks for reading!
