Banana Republic boyfriend cardigan (old)
Old Navy Rockstar super skinny jeans
Lou & Grey funnelneck tunic, size XXS
Update 1/27 – Care Instructions: I washed this sweater on cold and air dried it but now the sleeves fit slimmer and the side slits don’t fall quite the same way anymore (I’m going to try reshaping it some more). The care tag says handwash and dry flat but I would recommend dry cleaning this sweater for best results. The amount of wool content in this sweater must have caused the material to shrink a bit width wise.
My favorite over the knee boots and skinny jeans are my outfit of choice this winter. I loved how warm and cozy the funnelneck tunic was when I wore it yesterday. The sleeves of size XXS are a tad long but I prefer that so that it keeps my hands warm. The side slits are cut high so I wore a cami underneath. In case I raised my arms I didn’t want to flash any skin. We finally had our first real storm today so I may need to look into real winter boots.
I received all of my LOFT order from last week on Thursday and I finally got around to trying on everything this afternoon. Here is a quick review of each item I ordered:
I just had to have this colorblock flare dress when I first spotted it online and I’m happy to report that it’s gorgeous in real life. Only the regular size of the dress is available to order online but I’ve heard that it’s available in petites in stores as confirmed in the comments of this Instagram post. The regular size 00 fits me decently but I agree with another online reviewer that the armpit openings are cut small and high which is very strange and could be uncomfortable. If you have thin/thinner arms then this may not be cause for concern but I think the small armpit openings may result in fit issues for some.
Size 00 regular measurements are as follows:
34.5″ total length
LOFT colorblock tunic softened shirt, size XXS
I also ordered this colorblock tunic softened shirt shirt in deep wisteria. I found this shirt to be a very thin so it’s perfect for spring and summer. The sleeves of size XXS are a tad long on me but they look better rolled up so it’s not a big deal.
LOFT open hoodie, size SP
The open hoodie is one of my favorite items from the new arrivals and I had originally ordered it in XSP but ended up returning it. When I reordered it this time around I sized up to SP because the arms run tight. The larger size allows me to layer comfortably underneath since I am able to pair it with the brushstripe tunic as shown below.
I love this brushstripe tunic since it’s very soft and warm but I found that it has zero stretch. This means that it can be slightly difficult to get on and off. I think it would have helped if this sweater had side slits. Unless you’re really petite then I would recommend going up a size especially if you have a larger chest or you’ll have to strategically put it on and take it off without twisting something. I’m going to reorder this in XXS regular.
LEFT: Lou & Grey melange cardigan, size XS
RIGHT: Lou & Grey longline sweater jacket, size XS
Update 1/25: I forgot I tried on these two Lou & Grey sweaters a few weeks ago until I browsed my archive of pictures on my phone. The melange cardigan on the left is such a pretty blue-ish grey color. It’s not very warm in my opinion and more of a spring layering sweater. The longeline sweater jacket on right reminds me of the coatigan (sold out) from earlier this season except I like this color and texture more plus it has pockets and it’s very soft and warm. The sleeves of the regular size XS for both sweaters were long on me and I think size XXS would have fit me better.
Thanks for reading!
