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!
