Recent Outfits + A Few Quick Reviews

Happy Saturday! I wore the above outfit on Wednesday but I had originally thrown on the below outfit before I decided I needed to be more comfortable.

LOFT Eyelet Split Neck Peplum Shell, size XXSP
LOFT Eyelet Split Neck Peplum Shell, size XXSP (review and measurements here) | LOFT Shorts (old) | Michael Kors Alexis Espadrilles | Hermes Lindy 30 Dupe in blue grey (I just re-ordered the pink color and I hope I get a new one this time!) | Click here for other options to recreate this look

As much as I love this eyelet top the narrow arm holes due to sizing down to XXSP have been really bothering me the last two times I wore this top. I'm going to have to do one more purge of my closet since I feel like I have been aimlessly buying all in the search of closet favorites.

Old Navy Fit & Flare Dress, size 0 regular in pink palm print

Speaking of closet favorites, I love this denim jacket with this palm print dress (now on sale for $15) which I regret not getting in other prints.

I just got a few packages in the mail. Here are some of my initial thoughts on a some of the items I tried on at home:

LOFT Frayed Denim Swing Jacket, size XSP

I ordered this frayed denim swing jacket since I couldn't resist the sale price of $16.99. I certainly don't need another denim jacket but my curiosity got the best of me. It fits true to size and it's a lighter medium wash. It does have a boxier fit so it looks best with casual outfits. It's been months since I originally tried it on and the one I received has the same amount of fraying at the hem as shown in the online stock image. See my original review in this post. Size XSP measurements are as follows:

17" bust (measured pit to pit)
18.5" along the bottom hem
13" shoulders
22" sleeves
5.75" upper arm circumference

Ann Taylor Leather Envelope Clutch in natural

This simple leather envelope clutch measures 10" in length and 6.5" high. I was surprised to find out that it's made in Switzerland and the Ann Taylor logo is tastefully stamped inside where you can't see it. The 100% cowhide leather is very soft and the stitching looks good too. It's a soft pink color that's the perfect neutral. It has a magnetic closure and a tan khaki colored fabric lining. The edges are decently finished too. Despite the slim profile it fits my iPhone 8+, key chain, lip stick, card holder and sunglasses in a thin fabric pouch. I ordered it on the first Tuesday of the month when it was an extra 60% off sale so I only paid $34 for it after the extra 15% off cardmember discount. The clutch is soft so it has no structure to it and I am leaning towards returning it despite the awesome sale price. Upon closer inspection this clutch looks exactly like the one from LOFT which includes a crossbody strap.

I wish I bought these modern twist seam skinny jeans in white sooner! See my original review in this post. It's 98% cotton and 2% elastane. Size 24/00P fits like my usual size 25/0P. The measurements for size 24/00P are as follows:

28" waist
7.5" rise
24.5" inseam
8.5" ankle opening

Halogen Soft Collarless Jacket, size XXSP
Halogen Soft Collarless Jacket, size XXSP (past season favorite, current season version and colors here) | LOFT Palm Sleeveless Swing Dress, size XXSP  | Similar Pearl Cuff | Palla Women's Petit K-Bag Handbag in Wine (c/o, Use my promo code @WHATJESSWORE for 15% off your purchase on palla.shop) | Sam Edelman Odila Sandal (true to size)

This collarless twill zip front jacket is back in black, tan and chambray this season (I'm also eyeing this pink Hinge tie sleeve jacket)! The olive color I have is from 2016. This short jacket is a favorite of mine and it has washed and held up well. Anyway I am not sure I like the above look but I do love the palm print so I'll have to see if there are other ways to style this dress aside from wearing it alone with some cute sandals.

This palm print dress fits true to size to one size smaller. I am usually size XSP at LOFT but size XXSP seems to fit me well. The measurements for size XXSP are as follows:

30" bust (measured pit to pit)
31.5" length

LOFT Star Drawstring Dress, size XXS regular

Where was this dress when I needed it on July 4th? In all seriousness, I wish this star print dress came in petite sizing because size XXS is too roomy all over on me. The dress looks okay but I think it doesn't really do anything on my straight figure with minimal curves. The measurements for size XXS regular are as follows:

36" bust
36" waist uncinched
34.5" length

If you love stars a few other styles are available here.

Lastly, I wanted to love this magnolia print dress but the length is a bit shorter than I prefer. This dress is cut more narrow up top and through the hips so you may want to size up for comfort. I am debating if I should reorder this dress in size 2P or 00 regular to compare or if I should pass on this dress altogether. The material is thicker making it more of a fall dress. The measurements for size 0P are as follows:

13.25" shoulders
32" bust (measured pit to pit)
28" waist
32.5" length

If you love this magnolia print it's also available as a top.

I reorganized my purchases page the other day and I also updated this page of my blog so that you can easily find my reviews by retailer. It's found under the 'Shop' tag of my blog at the very bottom of the list.

I have a few more packages coming this weekend so I'll try to share more soon! Update 7/8: I posted my first IGTV video today and there's a new dedicated page for the NSale. I also took away Disqus and I have enabled comments via the native platform for my blog so hopefully it's easier for you to leave comments or questions.

Thanks for reading!
