#OOTD: Tailor striped blouse from #LOFT, starburst fan necklace and Sloan fit ankle pants from #BananaRepublic, #AnnTaylor gallery tote, #JCrew captoe pumps.

J.Crew cap toe pumps, size 7

First up is my newest favorite striped top from LOFT. I originally ordered the Tailor stripe sheer blouse in size XXS but the sleeves were too long so I ordered size XSP which worked out much better overall. Size XSP measures:


17.25″ bust

20″ along the bottom hem

18″ sleeve length

4.25″ banded button sleeves

23.5″ total length

LOFT scalloped lace dress in 0P
LOFT Scalloped Sleeveless Lace Dress, both size 0P

This scalloped lace dress caught my eye online and I couldn’t decide on the color so I ordered both to try and ended up keeping the black one. I like that the neckline isn’t too low and I’m just looking for the perfect cropped cardigan or jacket to pair it with. Size 0P measures:

13.5″ waist

15″ bust

32″ total length


Loving my cozy infinity scarf on this gloomy Friday.
LOFT Lurex Open Stitch Infinity Scarf
LOFT Striped Popcorn Stitch Sweater, size MP

I really love this infinity scarf since I’ve been looking for one that isn’t too bulky. This one fit the bill in both warmth and softness and I’d highly recommend it.

Checking off 'wear a tutu' from my bucket list. Well sort of. Trying on the tutu skirt from #LOFT in regular 00 before it goes back in store. Measures 26" in the waist by 18.5" long. There's a grey jersey lining underneath so it's not see through.
LOFT Tulle Skirt, size 00

This tulle tutu skirt didn’t work out for me but the measurements of size 00 regular are:


13″ waist

18.5″ length

My #OOTD for meeting up with @justtututiny tonight: #zara blouse and jacket, #oldnavy rockstar legging jeans, #anntaylor scarf, #philliplimfortarget bag, #stuartweitzman boots.
Ann Taylor Twilight Leaf Print Scarf

I also loved this leaf print scarf from Ann Taylor so much since it drapes really well and is a thicker weight perfect for the winter. My mom actually took mine so I was very relieved to find this in stores on Black Friday for 50% off since I hate ordering fillers online. I even gifted it to my good friend along with the draped turtleneck top below for her birthday.

Loving this draped turtleneck from #AnnTaylor (wearing size MP). They have so many pretty tops ad dress for fall on sale for 40% off.

Ann Taylor Draped Turtleneck, size MP

I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how much I reached for this turtleneck top so far. I really adore the feminine drape of the neck since I find normal turtlenecks to be very suffocating and static hair inducing in this cold, dry winter weather.

The perfect bit of holiday #sparkle. Starburst fan necklace from #BananaRepublic.
Banana Republic Stardust Fan necklace

Another favorite find of mine is this sparkly necklace from Banana Republic. I met up with Thu of Justtututiny for some shopping a few weeks ago and spotted it in store. She convinced me to try it on and I’m so glad that she did. It comes with an extender so you can easily wear it with multiple necklines.

Just ordered the Vitah boots at #BananaRepublic for 40% off. I tried on size 7 in store because it was conveniently the floor model but it was a little snug so I'm hoping size 7 1/2 will fit perfectly. :) Perfect for narrow calves (mine measure 13.5" at t
Banana Republic Vitah Zip Boot, size 7.5

I purchased this boot a month ago and I was really impressed with the quality. It’s also a great fit for those with narrow calves. My calves measure 13.5″ at the widest part mid calf with jeans on. I still haven’t worn them out though because I’m not sure that high heel boots are safe to wear in the New England winters even though our grounds are currently free of snow. The foot bed runs narrow so I went up half a size for comfort.
