Happy Friday! It’s been quite the week working from home and caring for our puppy Ralphie. He’s got a lot of energy and I need to be better about crate training him since he enjoys laying on the hardwood floor and he doesn’t always want to return to his crate. Never have I placed more orders from Amazon in search of the perfect items to make him feel at home.
I’m back this week with a few new reviews and this camel poncho sweater is one of my favorite purchases since I bought it in two colors last year (see the speckled color here and the hunter green color here). I was hoping the rest of my online order would arrive in the mail but it looks like I won’t get the rest of my order until early next week. I am curious about the new reversible cardigans since I have two from last year (as seen here and here).

I sent out the strap for my purse to be shortened by Leather Surgeons and I should receive it back today according to the tracking number. The micro sizes straps are about 44″ end to end (including the hardware/clasps) but I requested that they shorten the strap to 36″ end to end.

This cropped sweater caught my eye and I thought it would look so cute with skirts. I was delighted to see that it’s very flattering with a little front tuck. I went up a size for a more relaxed fit.

This poncho sweater has an oversized fit and I took my usual size. If you try to size down you may lose some length. I love the camel color for the upcoming fall season. I was afraid this sweater would sell out quickly so I bought it in store and I used $30 of my LOFT Rewards. The points under the new ALL rewards program will be lost if you return an item so I try to make sure that I only redeem them towards items that I’m sure I will love and keep.

I like these jeans since they have a lot of stretch to them. My usual size fit me well and I had also tried them on in a size up. With the higher rise the larger size gives the jeans a different vibe. These jeans also come in a dark indigo wash but the inseam was longer when I held them up to me (note that I didn’t try on the darker wash this time since I was in a rush to get back home to Ralphie). Update 9/18: I received size 26/2P in the mail but it was too loose especially through the legs. I would need to exchange them for my usual size as shown above.

Lastly, I tried on this feminine blouse and my usual size fit me well. It is slightly sheer so a layering cami is required but I wish it was fully lined through the body. I was on the fence about how much I’d wear it so I passed on it for now.
Thanks for stopping by!
LOVE this poncho Jess! I also snapped it up right away because I think this will sell out quickly! Can’t wait to style it for the Fall and winter months!!
Thank you Lisa! I think so too! Maybe they’ll offer it in more colors again later in the season.
The poncho sweater looks great on you. I noticed last year you said you preferred the missy size vs. petite but you got the poncho in petite this time. Do you prefer the petite now? (I am about the exact same size as you so I’m curious).
Hi Debbie! If I bought it online I would have gotten XXS regular for a little extra length but I’m okay with XS petite.
Thanks for the feedback, the cream you got last year is now online, I got the XSP for the camel one (it’s great!) but I may order XXS Reg for the cream with speckles in it so I can wear it with leggings. I think the XSP will be great with skinny jeans but maybe more length will be good for leggings!
Actually darn they don’t have XXS Regular online in this!
Oh no! Maybe it sold out? It’s a size that quickly sells out and once that happens it looks like that size was never there.
Yes, likely! Anyway, the XSP will be fine too.
That’s good. The new speckled poncho is on my wish list! 🙂 I wore the one I have from last year a lot!
