For today's post, I'm wearing one of my outfits I picked out c/o LOFT from my Instagram takeover in January. I love this mixed ribbed open cardigan so much but it's sold out. I recently purchased another similar cardigan in whisper white (as seen here) and it also available in grey. When I compare them side by side, it's the same length and fit as this cardigan.

FITTING ROOM REVIEWS
Last weekend I tried on the following new arrivals which I shared in advance of this post via my Instagram stories.
LOFT Circle Lace Off The Shoulder Dress, size XXSP
I love the look of this off the shoulder dress and sized down to XXSP since it runs one size bigger. It's very flattering one and the sleeves aren't too voluminous. In my haste, I forgot to check what material they used on the care tag. Su saw this dress in store today at her local store and she confirmed that it's rayon and not polyester as listed on the website. Refer to this clip for another look of the fit on me.
LOFT Daisy Bell Sleeve Blouse, size XXSP
This adorable white blouse is my favorite top I tried on and I can't wait to pick it up. I found that it runs larger so I sized down to size XXSP which fits me perfectly. If you have a larger bust then you may want to stick with your usual size at LOFT. Update 3/7: It's also available in a solid blueberry color here.
LOFT Vineyard Stripe Swing Dress, size XSP
I like this bold vineyard print and I found that this dress fit true to size. Refer to this clip for another look at the fit on me. I didn't find that the material was too thin which is a plus.
LOFT Cold Shoulder Sweater, size S regular
I saw this cold shoulder top on Rebecca of @mommyinheels when she did her recent Instagram takeover during President's Day and I was happy to see it in store. Size XS regular was sold out so I tried on size S regular which surprisingly fit me okay but there's too much excess material across the hips. The sleeves are also bracelet length on me. I definitely need this top in size XS and interestingly my online True Fit profile recommends size XXSP which would be way too small and short. Refer to this clip for another look of the fit on me.
LOFT Lace Bell Sleeve Blouse, size XS regular
I love the pretty lace details on the bell sleeve blouse but I found that it fit really loose and long. Size XS felt more like size M on me. Refer to this clip for another view of the fit on me.The material is also really thin and slightly see through so a layering cami is recommended.
LOFT Striped Lace Up Side Sweater, size XS regular
I love the lace up details on the side of this striped sweater which actually feels like a t-shirt. The neckline is really wide so it shows my bra straps which is annoying. The sleeves are bracelet length on me and I found that this top has a very wide/boxy fit. I really like this nautical look though and it's also available in navy and white as seen in this clip. If you have small shoulders (mine measure 14" across) then you may not like this top. However, if you have broader shoulders then you may not have an issue with the wider neckline.
LOFT Hibiscus Shirred Blouse, size XXSP
I tried on this floral print blouse since I wanted to get an idea of how the shirred blouse fits because I noticed that it's offered in different prints and colors. It runs about one size bigger and I found that the side slits at the curved shirttail hem are cut a bit higher than I prefer. This issue could be unique to size XXSP which is cut for someone with the shortest torso.
LOFT Short Sleeve Cardigan, size XS regular
I am always on the lookout for the perfect cardigan to wear over sleeveless tops and dresses in the spring and summer. I love the longer half sleeves on this cardigan and size XS regular fit me well. I found that it fits true to size.
