Happy Friday and Summer Solstice! Dress and romper season are in full swing and I wore these two ouftits last weekend when we went down to celebrate Father’s Day with my husband’s family. This teardrop swing chair (similar here) is so fun and it’s located inside an office building in Jersey City.

FITTING ROOM REVIEWS
For size reference I’m 5′ 2.5″ and I’m currently 112-113 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 update 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 really wanted this romper after I tried it on in store so I took size 2P since my usual size 0P was not available. It was roomy all over on me but I had read that the romper would shrink after you wash it. I already washed mine on cold and line dried it. I also steamed it thoroughly after it was dry hoping that it would relax the fibers in the material but it only gained back a quarter of an inch in the length and width. When the romper was new size 2P was 30.5″ total length and 15.5″ across the waist (where the ribbon sash is). After washing and line drying the romper was 29″ total length and 15″ across the waist. After I steamed it out the romper became 29.25″ total length and 15.25″ across the waist. It fits me better after it shrank as seen here but I have yet to wear and wash it again since last weekend. The romper is unlined so skin tone undergarments are a must.
I previously reviewed the chambray version here and the striped version here. LOFT Outlet also carries the same/similar dress in white here. Size 2P was too loose on me so I believe I would need this dress in my usual size 0P for the best fit. The dress isn’t lined but it’s not too sheer as long as you wear skin tone undergarments and/or a skirt slip. You can see the pocket lining through the material as seen here which I know can bother some people.
I bought this light jacket in my usual size XSP but it’s a relaxed fit on me as I mentioned in my previous post. I found and tried on size XXSP which is a better fit on me and I’m stuck with the size I got.
I like this floral print and I previously tried on size 0 petite here and size 0 regular here. Size 2P fit me well but the top portion is too loose on my smaller chest (I’m size 34AA in petite bras). This adorable dress was featured on LOFT‘s instagram feed recently.
I tried on this blue and white maxi dress in my usual size XS petite but petite sizes either sold out very quickly online or it’s not yet available online. It’s not unusual for regular missy sizes comes out first before petites. The dress is fully lined so it is not see through. The dress is a longer length so if you’re shorter than me (I’m 5′ 2.5″) then you would need to wear higher heels to prevent the hem from dragging on the floor. You can wear it belted as shown above or unbelted as seen here.
I love a good white denim jacket and this one runs true to size for a cropped length. The material isn’t too stiff so it’s a comfortable fit.
This eyelet top is fully lined and it has a wider, boxy fit so size XXSP fits like my usual size XSP. There’s a cute cutout in the back as seen here.
This polka dot top is a new arrival not yet available online. It fits the same as the bouquet buttoned petal sleeve top I reviewed and featured here. The material is thin so I can see the outline of my bra which is a deal breaker for me.
MORE RECENT OUTFITS
I wore this outfit to work yesterday since it was rainy and gloomy.
This top runs true to size. The bust darts don’t fit my smaller chest well so I’m passing on this top. It’s not too sheer for an off white blouse and it’s also available in a floral print.
This square neck top is really cute and it’s fully lined so it’s not too sheer. I took my usual size XSP which is a shorter length but it still tucks in to skirts pretty well as shown below. If you like style top it’s also available in polka dots here with matching shorts as seen on Emily @ems_ensemble_.
