OUTFIT DETAILS: Ann Taylor Floral Essential Sleeveless Shirt, size XSP (last featured here, review here) | LOFT Denim Sailor Shorts in White, size 24/00 regular (review here) | LOFT Pom Pom Straw Tote | Treasure & Bond Miles Slide Sandal (review here)
I’ve been MIA all weekend but I’m back to share a few updates. My exact floral print top is currently almost out of stock online but you can find the essential sleeveless shirt in more colors and prints. The sailor shorts are very popular they’re sold out in many sizes. If you like the nautical button detail then you may also like these cropped pants with button details from Ann Taylor.
My straw bag is part of the Amazon Prime Day deal for $23.90. I like this square neck top since it’s fully lined and not sheer. However, after wearing it twice I wonder if size XXS regular would have been better for the slightly longer length. I ordered the polka dot version in XXS regular and I hope it arrives soon.

LOFT – Today’s deal is $20 pants, save an extra 60% off sale styles and 40% off almost everything else including Lou & Grey styles in the Sneak Preview section. Use code SURPRISE. Sale ends tonight 7/17 at 3AM ET. I ordered the first two dresses linked here. FYI. I received a mailer today for 50% off for Cardmembers July 19-21 and it included a unique, one time code that works in store or online. You can always check out my sales picks over on my Insta Shop. Refer to all of my LOFT reviews here.
Lastly, Amazon Prime Day is today through tomorrow 7/16 and if you don’t already have Amazon Prime you can read about the benefits here. Just because something on sale doesn’t mean it’s the best deal and I have the wikibuy plug-in installed on my browser to help me price check. I ordered some boring home stuff like these pillow protectors and I may order more things if I see another good deal. I noticed that my hair dryer is 30% off (discount reflected at checkout).
I’m currently going through a bit of a funk so I may list more items on my Poshmark later this week.
FITTING ROOM REVIEWS
For size reference I’m 5′ 2.5″ and I’m currently 111 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.
LOFT Striped Peplum Flutter Tee, size XSP (review of size XXSP here) | LOFT Riviera Shorts with 6 in inseam, size 24/00 regular (review of the 4 inch inseam version here) | Ann Taylor Kennedy Cork Heeled Sandals (true to size, review here)| Click here and here to view the clip from my try-on
I ended up getting this tee in my usual size XSP even though I previously tried on the smaller size which also fit me well. I also tried on the riviera shorts in the 6″ inseam since I wanted to pair the intense olive color with the tops I tried on. I folded the hem once as seen here which makes them look less awkward on me. I prefer a 4″ inseam and I have a pair of the riviera shorts in the milky tan color.
This striped henley is cute and simple but it has the mixed media back which is 100% rayon. If you find that the material gets shorter after washing you can let the top air dry first. Once it’s completely dry you can steam the fabric in the back of the top and the steam will relax the fibers so that you gain back the loss in length from laundering.
Size XXSP fit like my usual size XSP and the tee isn’t too see through so you can’t make out the outline of my nude bra. This top would be really cute tucked into skirts. I passed on it for now since I only came in to get the stripe peplum top I reviewed up top.
The thin straps of the dress are adjustable but you have to adjust the straps first because once it’s on the material doesn’t slide easily through the loops. I did not get this dress since it is unlined so you will see the outline of your body in strong sunlight. The dress accentuates my problem area at the hips since the placement of the chevron stripes makes my hips look rectangular as seen here. For reference I’m 5′ 2.5″ and I have on almost 2.5″ heels.
Thanks for stopping by!
