LOFT Button Back Sweatshirt, size XSP | Banana Republic Skinny Zero Gravity Ankle Jean with Asymmetrical Fray Hem, size 25P (review here) | Hunter Original Refined Gloss Rain Boots in Tawny (true to size, review here) | Click here and here to view the clips from my try-on
Click here to see the back of the top and here to see a close up of the flatlay. This mock neck top is so cute and I love the button details on the back which are decorative and not functional buttons. I took my usual size XSP for a relaxed fit.
LOFT Spotted Double Ruffle Cuff Blouse, size XSP | c/o LOFT Cozy Open Cardigan, size XS regular (review here) | c/o Ann Taylor Denim Jeggings in pure dark indigo wash, size 25/0P (review here) | J.Crew Factory Zoe suede d’Orsay flats (true to size, review here)
I also love this leopard print blouse which I took in my usual size XSP for a softly fitted look. I love how it looks paired with the recent cardigans I picked up below. If you like this blouse and you are leopard print obsessed then you may want to check out this scarf and these cute socks.
I like this cardigan so much in the mauve glow color that I ordered size XXS regular in the linen white color below since size XS regular was too big on me. The linen white color runs one size bigger for some reason even though it’s the same style (refer to my previous review here). Size XXS regular of the linen white color (pictured below) fits like size XS of the mauve glow color (pictured above).
I’ve been looking for a good olive cardigan but while I like how this cardigan drapes I am not in love with the material. It doesn’t look like it will wash well so I will likely return it. The material is similar to this old cardigan (review here) that shrank after laundering despite line drying it.
Here is the leopard print blouse by itself so that you can better see how my usual size XSP fits me. I haven’t worn it out yet since I wonder if I should try size XXSP for comparison in case I need a closer fit. Update 12/29: I received size XXSP in the mail but it was too tight across the bust so my usual size XSP is the best fit and drape.
Click here to see a side view of the coat and I was wearing this bow keyhole back top (review here) underneath. As mentioned in my previous post I decided to keep this white puffer coat but as I suspected I got makeup along the collar of the coat since I didn’t wear a scarf to prevent it. The jacket is machine washable so the makeup stain came out easily with some Shout. My usual size XSP is a relaxed fit perfect for layering with a thicker sweater as shown below but if you want a closer fit you should be able to size down as well.

I love this plaid blouse but it really bothered me that it wasn’t available in petites since size XXS regular was huge on me as reviewed here. I’m happy to report that it’s available in petite sizes and fully stocked. I took size XXSP which fits like my usual size XSP. One of my Poshmark friends already asked me to hold the larger size for her. I also gave the above larger size of the cardigans in size SP to my little sister but the sleeves were actually too short on her since she’s 5’7″.
This neutral wrap is really cute and since it’s an open style it’s more petite friendly than their other wraps where the sides are closed on the sides. Size XS/S is also a petite friendly length that’s not too overwhelming.
I have and love this sweater in grey so I had to pick up this soft pink color as well in my usual size XSP. Update 1/3/19: The sleeves of the sweater do pill. I whip out my sweater shaver to remove the pilling.
Click here to see the side view which reminds of me how this dress looks if you watched the linked video clip. As mentioned above I wish this poncho had worked out for me since the neutral colors are beautiful and it is well made but it’s too oversized and sloppy on me which is more telling from the side. If it wasn’t closed off on the sides then it would have draped a lot better.
I really wanted this sweater to work out but I missed out on size XXS regular and size XS regular is an oversized fit on me so I passed for now. The colors remind me of a cupcake. I’m happy to report that it’s not itchy.
I also got this texture dot crossover sweatshirt in size XXS regular which you can see on me here. I also love and would recommend this navy and grey dotted cozy reversible scarf as seen on me here. I took this speckled pocket shift skirt in size 00P which fits like my usual size 0P. I’ll try to include better pictures/clips soon but I had gotten these items in yesterday’s order when I came home after work.

Ann Taylor Houndstooth Tweed Jacket, size 00P | Banana Republic Strappy Camisole, size XSP (it has a boxy fit but I like the adjustable straps and the fact that it’s lined) | Banana Republic Skinny Zero Gravity Ankle Jean with Asymmetrical Fray Hem, size 25P (review here) | Ainifeel Quilted Wallet Billfold Cell Phone Wallet With Chain in navy (last seen here) | Franco Sarto Imogen Sandal (true to size, review here) | Click here to view the clip from my try-on
I love this tweed jacket and it does have sparkly threads throughout so some people may not like that since the first few online reviews also mention how sparkly it is. I took size 00P which fits like my usual size 0P. It also has functional pockets but I have to free them. Update 1/11: The new year is young and I am trying to be better about only keeping items I know I won’t tire of. I may very well regret this but I returned the jacket for now.
