Happy Lunar New Year to those that celebrate! I hope everyone had a great weekend! My husband and I took a few days off to celebrate the new year with family and I ate more these last few days than I have in a while. Thank goodness for cute but loose clothes to hide the food baby.
I love this mixed stripe scarf because it’s thin but it still manages to be cozy. It’s also the perfect neutral to pair with many items in my closet. I noticed that they didn’t list the material online and according to the care tag it is 100% acrylic.

I ordered this pretty tshirt in size XSP and I’m so glad I did because size XS regular is too loose and long on me. It fits true to size but it has a relaxed fit. Update: I ended up returning size XSP since it was still a bit too long for me.
I tried on the black color of this ruffle cuff top in size XS regular in a previous post and I ordered the pink color pictured above in size XXS regular. I found size XSP to try on in store the other day and it has a very loose fit throughout the body. I’m not sure I will love this top enough to keep it but I’ll see how the sleeve length and overall length fit in my preferred size. I don’t like how the petite sleeve length hits me above my elbows since I have longer arms than most petites. I was hoping the sleeves would fit like half sleeves on me similar to size XS regular. Update 2/2: I really love the fit of size XXS regular on me. It turns out that the sleeve length and drape is perfect in my preferred size.
LOFT Mixed Floral Lace Shell, size XXSP
I love this pretty floral lace top and I tried on both size XXSP and XSP which you can see on me here. I found that it fits true to size to slightly larger. XSP has a slightly boxier fit on me. Since I have a smaller bust I prefer the fit of size XXSP on me.
LOFT Sunny Lace Top, size XXSP
This sunny lace top is gorgeous in person. I love the unique cutouts and the lemon color. This fits one size larger since XXSP fits me. My only concern is the 100% rayon lining they used which usually requires steaming out the garment after it is completely dry for it to return to the normal length and fit. Refer to this clip for another view of this top on me.
I love this floral sketched print and it’s also available as a cardigan here. This blouse fits true to size to slightly larger. Due to my smaller bust I fit size XXSP but I reviewed XSP in the same style but different print here. It is slightly sheer so a layering cami is recommended. I like that the v-neck isn’t too low.
LOFT Filigree Mixed Media Top, size XS regular
This mixed media top is really cute and the ridged knit material is the same as my favorite flecked two-in-one sweater (last seen here, review here and here) and I would say the sizing is very similar too. The white color with the scroll print in the back (pictured at the top on the fitting room rack) was sold out in XS regular so I tried on the navy color. XS regular was loose on me so I believe I would need my usual size XXS regular or XSP for a better fit.
LOFT Cat Sweater, size S regular
This cat sweater is really cute so I tried it on for run since I figured many cat ladies may be interested. I found that it runs true to size but I sized up to size S regular for a relaxed but flattering fit. The sleeves run long and I have the ribbed cuff at the sleeves folded up one time. Even the model in their online stock image has the sleeves folded up once. Refer to this clip for a better fit of the sweater on me.
LOFT Lacy Bell Sleeve Blouse, size XS regular
I would typically pass over blouses that have cutouts on top but with a nude bra you can’t really see my bra straps. The top portion also isn’t so low that I would need a cami. Size XS regular fit me a bit loose so my usual XXS regular or XSP would be a better fit.I’d say this top runs true to size. Refer to this clip to see the fun bell sleeves.
LOFT Modern Skinny Jeans in black, size 25/0P
Lastly, I went to the store to find these modern skinny jeans with the frayed hem on the bottom since they were highly recommended by my fit twin, Su (we typically take the same size at LOFT but note that she is 5′ while I’m 5′ 2.25″). I tried on size 24/00 regular (see it on me here), size 25/0P pictured above, and size 26/2P (see it on me here). We both took size 26/2P. Size 24/00 regular was a bit longer on me and it didn’t look right cuffed. Size 25/0P was a bit more snug in the waist with a snug fit throughout the pant legs that some some may prefer. Size 25/0P also looked a bit shorter than I would prefer for ankle pants. I went with size 26/2P so I could eat a meal comfortably and not feel like I had to unbutton my pants. These jeans are new to stores first so if you want to track them down the item no. is 434223 ($69.50) in regular missy and 434310 in petites.
I was eyeing this plaid infinity scarf and it is as pictured online. I bought this blush crystal necklace after seeing it in store. I ordered quite a few new arrivals this time including this modern trench coat in size 0P so I could try it on since I haven’t seen it in stores yet.
