I wore this outfit to work mid-June and I just realized that I forgot to share it on my blog since my husband has been helping me take tons of photos lately. I need to find a better way to stay organized. By the way, I ordered this Maison Jules scallop-trim top in XXS this year but the arm holes were cut a bit too high for me to be comfortable so I had to stick with size XS which I have from last year (review here). See size XXS on Sara here.
This top fits really wide and given the odd sizing and fit I’d say that it fits like a boxy size XSP from LOFT. Take size XSP and then add another inch or so to the width on each side and that’s how this top fits. I prefer to wear a jacket or cropped cardigan over this top to hide the less than satisfactory fit since I do love the print. It’s also available in an adorable cherry print this year. The Limited also just came out with some cute lemon print tops here and here.

Ann Taylor – Get 40% off full-price tops and save up to 60% off sale styles (shop new to sale styles here). Valid in stores and online. Sale ends 7/11 at 3AM ET. Since no code is needed for the promotion on sale styles you can use the code GIFT10 for $30 off $60+ for even further discounts if you’re interested in ordering only sale styles. Alternatively, use the code THANKS10 for $50 off your full-price purchase of $100+. Note: The shopping cart only takes one code per order. Shop my sales picks here:
Yesterday I ordered this birds of paradise sleeveless shirtdress when my size (XSP) popped back using the code GIFT10. I added a filler item for my mom so the subtotal was over $60 in order to use the code. I noticed her item was cancelled so hopefully I secured this dress for $37.52 (including the $8.95 shipping fee) instead of the current sale price of $55. Hopefully they’re able to fulfill my order in time since my order status is still ‘processing’.
I’m tempted to place a small order on full-price promotional items using the code THANKS10. If you don’t mind paying for shipping then you can maximize your savings using this code online by getting your subtotal as close to $100.

Shop my sales picks here:
I received the Lou & Grey heathered bare swing dress in grey and the material is different and it’s a few inches longer than the same dress and same size (XS regular) that I have in black (review here). The black dress is 64% polyester, 33% rayon and 3% spandex while the grey one is 53% rayon, 44% polyester and 3% spandex but both are machine washable. I washed them in cold water and air dried them to prevent shrinking.
*Similar to the month of May and June, the LOFT Insider code for the month of July is $25 of $100+ instead of the usual 25% off $100+.

The Limited – Get 60% off select styles, 40% off brand new arrivals and an extra 40% off sale styles. The other day I was catching up on my pins on Pinterest when I noticed that this soft open front jacket was available in what I hope is my size (size XXSP). I reviewed size XSP in this post. I also ordered this chambray vest, this soft safari vest (if it works I plan on ditching the awful belt) and this pleat back cami with adjustable straps in the hopes that it will be perfect for layering under sheer tops.
I wanted to order a bunch of other items which caught my eye including this pretty neutral drapey open front vest (available for pre-order), striped swing dress, open front duster vest, sheer printed layering top in what looks like tiny lemons and pineapple print sleeveless Logan blouse but I’m not familiar with The Limited’s prices or sales cycles so I held off for now while I wait to see which of my four items will work out. My sister gave me this drapey asymmetrical tee in size S since it didn’t work out for her. The Limited is actually her favorite store the same way I’m obsessed with Ann Taylor and LOFT.
Nordstrom – My favorite Halogen soft collarless jacket (last seen here, review here) is now on sale for $52.80. Early access for their anniversary sale starts June 14-21. I’m debating whether I should finally get a Nordstrom card but more store cards means more bills to keep track of. I’m so used to only paying the bill for my LOFT card so there have been some close calls when I shop at a different retailer despite the email reminders, bill pay reminders and flagging those emails.

Zara – Shop their summer sale for some finds at awesome prices. My gem encrusted slides (item no. 7506/101, last seen here) are now only $15.99. I wish I didn’t pay full price for my pair but they’re perfect for dressing up any outfit. In other news, I found an almost exact dupe by Report footwear of my favorite chain sandals from last year here and here. Forever 21 also has a similar pair here.
