A new post is now up on the blog! Thanks for reading!

Today is the last day to get 50% off everything + FREE shipping at LOFT. Use code VERYMERRY. Valid online only. I recently ordered these aviator retro sunglasses recommended by Ly and a few other items on my wishlist including this mixed stripe top in size XS and this fringe tweed pocket shift skirt in size XXS. How cute is this pocket hoodie cardigan (and why doesn't it come in petites)? Check out all of my recent purchases here or shop my sales picks here:

I just ordered these matching PJ sets (recommended by Ly) in XS for the under $13 bottoms and MP for the under $6 tops for a looser fit. Use code ENJOY for an extra 25% off at Old Navy. I wanted the polar bear set but I keep missing out on the sizes.

I compared my favorite pair of distressed jeans here. I reviewed a similar pair here and a darker wash here.

Here's a preview of some try-ons that I'm working on reviewing. Please feel free to message me if you have any questions and I'll try to respond to them in the morning.

 LOFT Knit Funnel Neck Moto Jacket, size XS regular
LOFT Dotted Swing Cami, size XXS regular
LOFT Sateen Leggings in black, size 26/2P (review here)
Tory Burch Sullivan Boots (past season review here)

I exchanged size XS for size XXS regular today since they sleeves are really long. Hopefully size XXS fits me better once I receive it in the mail. Size XS had 26" sleeves!

 LOFT Knit Funnel Neck Moto Jacket, size XS regular

 LOFT Textured Bell Sleeve Sweater, size XSP
LOFT Textured Bell Sleeve Sweater, size XSP (review of size XS regular here)

I returned size XXS regular and got size XSP instead which fits true to size but the sleeves are now a tad short on me since I have longer arms than most petites.

 LOFT Shimmer Splash Wrap Skirt, size 0P

True to size.

 LOFT Mock Neck Swing Sweater, size XSP

Not itchy. Runs big. Size XSP is a bit loose on me. I'm just afraid XXSP sleeves would be too short.

 LOFT Shadow Floral Lace Top, size XXSP

Runs big. Size XXSP fits like XSP. Needs a base layer.

 LOFT Rosette Faux Fur Infinity Scarf
LOFT Textured Pocket Open Cardigan, size XXS regular (reviewed size XSP here)
LOFT Dotted Swing Cami, size XXS regular (reviewed size XS regular here)

 LOFT Outlet Plaid Skirt, size 0 regular (last seen/review here)
LOFT Ruffle Turtleneck Top, size XXS regular
LOFT Outlet Plaid Skirt, size 0 regular (last seen/review here)

After trying on the skirt again I ended up exchanging size 0 regular for size 0P today and hopefully it fits me better since the skirt is a bit too a-line.

 LOFT Ruffle Turtleneck Top, size XXS regular
LOFT Ruffle Turtleneck Top, size XXS regular

Runs true to size but the overall length is very long. I'm tempted to exchange it for petites. Also the material is thin and it seems like it could be prone to pilling.

 LOFT Dotted Swing Cami, size XXS regular
LOFT Dotted Swing Cami, size XXS regular (review of size XS regular here)
LOFT Foldover Pocket Cardigan, size XXSP (I ended up exchanging XXSP for XSP today)
LOFT Chewed Hem Jeans, size 25/0P

Runs big. Size down if possible.

Since no code is needed on these select categories you can use code INSIDER384 to save $25 off 100+ on full-price promotional items. Refer to my old blog post here to find out how to get a lower free shipping minimum.

I ended up exchanging size XS of the knit funnel neck moto jacket for size XXS regular. Thank you for your opinion in my poll from yesterday! The sleeves run really long (size XS had 26" sleeves). I bought it on Sunday for under $24 since the store I went to let me use my LOFT cash (this promotion expired yesterday, sad face) + the EXTRA5 coupon (all valid coupons I'm aware of are listed in this blog post or on the sale alerts page).

Shop the shimmer splash wrap skirt I am wearing today in size 0P. I also got this textured bell sleeve sweater in size XSP since size XXS was too long and loose but size XSP sleeves are a bit short on me. New reviews coming soon on the blog!

I purchased size XS of this cozy sherpa-lined cardigan in gray. It's also available in other colors including this cream plaid.

I wonder if LOFT or Ann Taylor will do anything tomorrow for Green Monday. Meanwhile I spotted these fleece lined tights online which could be a game changer if you love wearing skirts and dresses in cold weather!

If you're looking for last minute presents these DW Home candles are really cute and smell great. FYI. I found them for $6.99 at T.J. Maxx. You can also find them on eBay but they're substantially marked up.

Flash Sale Alert! Get 50% off your entire purchase at Ann Taylor with code MYTSERY50. Valid online only. Sale ends 12/5 at 3AM ET. Shop my sales picks here

I tried on this adorable bow-front coat yesterday in size 4 which has 14.5" shoulders and 24.5" sleeves. I believe I need size 2 but I ordered size 0 since that was the size that popped back today. It's currently on sale for $109. The outfit featured in my story is shoppable here.

The LOFT Outlet items numbers for the plaid skirt are:

443746 - Regular missy
448849 - Petites

It was $54.99 but I bought it on sale plus I got an extra 10% off for being a cardmember so I only paid $22.49. I bought size 2 which has a 27" waist and 18.5" total length. I probably need to exchange it for size 0 for a better fit at the waist. A somewhat similar plaid skirt is on final sale and available from Ann Taylor here (currently available in sizes 8 and up).

A new blog post is now up! Thanks for reading!

 Banana Republic Bracelets
Banana Republic Pearl Stationary Bracelet (now sold out online) - 8" total length   

I ordered these pretty bracelets on Cyber Monday from Banana Republic and they arrived today!  After seeing the delicate one in stores a few weeks ago I couldn't get it off my mind. The pearl cuff fits me better than the similar one I have from Ann Taylor since the opening is smaller so it stays on better. For reference, I have a 6" wrist. The two bracelets have a 1/2" extender. The pearl cuff measures 2.75" across.

Today's yay of the day deal is $10 cotton tees. Unfortunately it looks like this deal only applies to 8 tees. Since the daily deal requires no code online you can use code INSIDER371 for an extra $25 off full-price promotional orders of $100+.

 LOFT YAY OF THE DAY - Day 2: $10 Cotton Tees

If you're unfamiliar with shopping at LOFT the best savings to be had are on select full-price items that are part of the daily deals. Look for items clearly marked 'no code needed' since the shopping cart only accepts one code at checkout. The 'no code needed' daily deals are the best way to shop and save online because you can apply a cardmember code (valid codes are always shared on the sale alerts page) or a LOFT INSIDER code (always shared on the right side bar of my blog or the sale alerts page) for additional savings.

Refer to my online order from yesterday where you can see that I ended up saving a lot with the additional cardmember code:

Today's yay of the day deal is $15 jewelry. Since the daily deal requires no code online you can use code INSIDER371 for an extra $25 off full-price promotional orders of $100+. Alternatively, cardmembers can use code FESTIVE40 (the online shopping strategy I shared in this post) to save an extra 40% off. Both of these codes exclude full-price Lou & Grey. Note: You won't see the extra 40% off reflected until you enter your credit card's security code when reviewing your order and before you click on the 'place order' button.

 Example of FESTIVE40 & Free Shipping on $50+

I know everyone is trying to hold out for Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals (even LOFT's site and emails hint at a secret sale on Thursday) but if you're afraid of popular items and/or sizes selling out then you can place a smaller order. For example, I ordered this and this for now since size XXS regular is the first to go. Refer to my old blog post here to find out how to get free shipping on orders of $50+.

Stay tuned for an upcoming holiday giveaway with some of the jewelry I picked on sale. I know not everyone has a card to take advantage of the extra cardmember discounts so I figured I'd share my savings in a small way.

NOVEMBER 20, 2017

Please check out my new blog post!

For Ann Taylor's flash sale (ends tonight), I ordered this tulip dress in size 00P as recommended by Su (swipe left in her post 5 times, she was trying on size 0P), this striped double v sweater in size M regular (review here) and this pretty ruffled v-neck blouse I saw in store which looked like it ran large so I ordered size XXSP to try.

Check out this funny Instagram account for some photoshop genius.

If you're looking to bring some yummy baked treats to your family and friends for Thanksgiving I highly recommend stopping by Tous Les Jours or Paris Baguette.
