This pretty white tee is back again this year and in a few other colors! I love the eyelet detail on the sleeves. I got it in XS petite when it first came out summer of 2017 as reviewed here. Update 3/30: I just noticed that this tee is now available in petite sizes! I linked to similar items for the rest of the outfit details here.

Just a friendly reminder for cardmembers that the first Tuesday of the month is this Monday April 1st, 2019. Next month is my birthday month so I’m curious to see how they handle the $15 birthday rewards which I heard is now sent via email. However, I discovered that they have a $10 off your full-price promotional purchase of $50+ that changes based on the latest horoscope sign. The current online code is BDAYPISCES. However, since this sale requires a code both the birthday code and MOBILE25 for $25 off your full-price promotional purchase of $100+ cannot be combined for extra savings.
LOFT’s sneak preview page has even more new items to peruse and I noticed these adorable mommy & me outfit options a few days ago. The LOFT Littles collection is starting small since I only see 3 (update 3/30: now counting 4) pieces and I’m looking forward to seeing fellow mom bloggers twin with their minis. The white lace dot dress looks similar to the navy lace shift dress I have (review here) but it fits the two models differently from the waist down.
Here are this week’s LOFT try-ons. For size reference I’m 5′ 2.5″ and 108-110 pounds. I’m usually size XS petite in tops and 0/25 petite in pants and jeans. If you’re new to my blog I typically share the link to a short video clip below each image (the same video clips I share in my Instagram stories swipe ups during sales). My Pinterest is also up to date if you prefer a more visual catalog of my reviews. You can also check out my other reviews organized by retailer here.

I stopped by after work the other night in an attempt to use my LOFT cash and I was so excited about this shirt until I double checked the online reviews. I always check positive and negative reviews but there was enough people complaining about the top becoming wrinkly to stop me from buying it right then and there in store. If you have this blouse I would love to know if you love it or regret buying it. I liked that it wasn’t see through and it fit true to size and it looked realty flattering tied at the waist.
This striped skirt was on my wish list but my usual size in petites draped oddly across my hips so I want to try it in regular missy for comparison. I am also curious about this solid new skirt in dark army green that I spotted under the sneak preview section. Size 0P has a 27″ waistband but my waist is currently 29″ so it was a tight squeeze. Update 3/31: See size 4P on me here which has a 28.5″ waist. I ended up ordering size 0 regular to try since size 2 petite was sold out by the time I checked out online yesterday.
I really like this striped everyday sweater and my usual size XSP fit me well. It’s not sheer despite being a thinner white sweater. I previously reviewed the yellow solid color in size XS regular in this post.
I really wanted this blossom print shell and it’s one of the sneak preview pieces but I was able to pick it up at my local LOFT in Natick Mall on the last day of the LOFT cash promotion. It’s lined so it’s not see through and my usual size XSP fits me well although I could have probably also gone with XXS regular for extra length.
This dress is really pretty with the shirred details at the waist for a flattering fit. I found that it runs true to size. The darker floral print seems more suitable for a fall dress but the smooth material feels really comfortable for the spring and summer.

I was looking for the black and white striped petal sleeve tee so I tried on this red and white version for sizing. My usual size XSP fits me well for a relaxed fit.
The details on the sleeves of this sweater tee are so pretty and my usual size XSP fit me well. It would also look really nice tucked into skirts.
I thought these new chinos were adorable with the eyelet cuffs. Size 00P has a 28″ waistband but the shorter rise made them uncomfortable. I tried them on again further down this post in my usual size 0P which was a more comfortable fit.
Click here to see a closeup of the colors in the thread. This tweed jacket is really well made and I found size 00P to try on but the shoulders were too a bit snug for comfort (I have 14″ shoulder). I’m afraid that my usual size 0P may be too boxy for my preference.
This swiss dot top is really cute but a bit sheer against my skin tone even though it’s lightly lined. My usual size XSP fit me well but I could also probably take size XXS regular for extra length.

These cropped jeans are a nice option for work since they do not have any distressing. My usual size 25/0P fit me well but since I’m a few pounds over my usual weight it was a little snug for comfort. Hopefully I’ll get back to eating better so that I feel healthier.
I previously reviewed this little black dress in size XXSP here but it was a touch short. My usual size XSP is a bit longer and it fits true to size. Visually I think the smaller size looks better on me despite the shorter length.
This print is so cheery with the yellow flowers but I noticed that the pocket linings added bulk at my hips. The dress would be better belted to give it some shape. My usual size XSP fit me well but I would love to try XXS regular for some extra length.
This peplum top was on my wish list since I love the buttons and the tie sleeve detail but the bust darts did not work for me since I have a smaller chest. I’m size 32A or 34AA in petite bras. Otherwise size my usual size 0P fit true to size.
I have this blouse in the navy and white polka dot version which I reviewed here. The pink color is too see through against my skin tone and requires a layering cami but my usual size XSP fits true to size.
I can never resist trying on white blouses and this one has a pretty embroidery and texture to it. If you like sheer white blouses for the warmer weather then you may want to give it a try. My usual size XSP fit me well. Here is a better look at the blouse in better lighting on the mannequin below paired it with the modern slim pocket skinny crop jeans in yellow (also available in curvy fit) which looks really cute and summery.
LOFT Textured Pattern Henley Blouse| LOFT Modern Slim Pocket Skinny Crop Jeans in yellow (also available in curvy fit)
I liked the idea of this blouse since the stripes and embroidered dots are cute but the material seems to be a bit wrinkly. Size XXSP fits like my usual size XSP.
These ruffle henley shells make layering effortless and I really like the colors in this one. My usual size XSP fit me well but I would prefer XXS regular for extra length. I previously reviewed the heart print version here and made the same observation.
This floral romper looks pretty on but my torso is shorter (I prefer between 23-24″ tops) and I would have to tuck the excess material into the waistband as noted in the video clips. If you have a longer torso the romper should fit true to size but I couldn’t get over the excess fabric at the waist as seen here. I’m also curious about this black romper and I hope it fits much better than this floral print one.

These medium wash jeans run true to size but I didn’t love the whiskering. If you don’t tuck in your shirts then this should be a non-issue.

The frayed cuffs on these light wash jeans are very trendy right now. My usual size 25/0P was loose in this pair since the material is too stretchy so I would need a size down for a better fit.
OTHER TRY-ONS & REVEIWS
J.Crew Eyelet Top in Vintage Cotton, size XS | Time and True High Rise Sculpted Ankle Jegging in dark enzyme wash, size 2 | Crown Vintage Thilanna Slip-On Sneaker (true to size, review here) | Click here to view the clip from my try-on
This eyelet top is really cute but it has a very wide, swingy fit and a shorter total length so if you have a longer torso then you may not like how this top drapes. I noticed that you can see your bra through the holes as seen here. It is a feminine top and I’ll have to try on the other colors before making up my mind.
I tried on this striped maxi shirt dress a few weeks ago when shopping with my husband since he loves Banana Republic. You can check out his favorites here. The dress is fully lined up to your knees and it has pockets but the bust is a snug fit. I didn’t think the dress was flattering on me so I passed. I’m 5’2.5″ so the longer length it can work with flats if you’re my height or taller.
I was curious about this maxi trench after seeing it on a few different bloggers that are average height and petite like myself. The trench is decent quality but I’m not convinced that I can pull off the longer length. My usual size XSP fit me well otherwise through the shoulders and sleeves. I was hoping to try on the dark olive color but I haven’t seen it in store in my size yet.
This eyelet dress is really pretty with the ruffle straps and tiers but the shape at the hips made the lining in the mid section bunch up so it didn’t feel very comfortable to me. I noticed another online reviewed mentioned the same thing with the bunching so I’m glad it wasn’t just me.

I bought these stretchy jeggings for my recent sponsored post with Walmart here and I decided to cut the extra length so that I wouldn’t have to cuff the jeans. I ended up cutting both pairs to my preferred 26″ inseam.
Last year I was looking at a similar pair of Steve Madden H band sandals so even though I already own two similar pairs (review here) I slipped on this version I saw at TJ Maxx for sizing. I am usually size 7 but I needed these in size 7.5 for the extra length.
I have one more upcoming post with Walmart in April and I saw these affordable spring bags that are all $35 and under. I have the $9.97 tote on the bottom right in black, light grey (pictured below) and mochaccino (light pink) and my review and measurements can be found at the bottom of my previous sponsored post here. The Leigh tote is similar in sizing to the popular Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM tote bag but it’s more narrow in the width. However, it fits this bag insert I use in all of my larger tote style bags. If you prefer more spill proof material I have this bag insert for my smaller bags and I bought the larger size for my mom for her tote bags.
I tried on a lot of items for my Walmart including this sleeveless blouse which are similar to styles that you would also find at LOFT. I though the floral print was really cute but the arm holes were too big on me. It’s also available in solid colors here. This white jean jacket runs small and size S fits like XS petite.
Lord & Taylor Three-Quarter Sleeve Dotted Pullover, size XS regular
Here is the dotted sweater in the pretty minty blue color. The sweater runs small so I prefer the length of the regular missy size.
Karl Lagerfeld Striped Roundneck Top, size XS
I tried on this cute striped top with the scallop accents but the sizing is very generous and size XS fit more like size M which was a shame because the material is very substantial. I wanted this knit bow sleeve top but it was also generous in sizing.
