This leopard print scarf is a great fall accessory and there are pink accents against the black and white leopard print. If you like this print it’s also available as a blouse.
This top runs true to size and I took size XXS for extra length. The regular missy size XXS is a slightly longer version of size XS petite. I also have this cutout back peplum top in yellow as featured here. I love it paired with the boyfriend cardigan which I have in dark eucalyptus leaf (review here) since it highlights the greens in the vine print.
I have two reversible cardigans from last year (as seen here and here) and I like this dark gray plaid version this season. Size XXS regular fit me well. You can wear it inside out with the plaid pattern showing on the shawl collar as shown below so it’s like having two cardigans in one. Unlike last year’s version the material from this year doesn’t contain any wool. This plaid version is 90% cotton and 10% nylon and the striped version I reviewed directly below is 90% cotton, 9% nylon and 1% spandex. The care tag is hidden and sewn inside the pocket since the item is reversible.
I also ordered the reversible cardigan in the striped version to try but the material is thinner and it doesn’t drape as nicely as the plaid version. My usual size XSP is an oversized fit for comfortable layering. Below is what it looks like if you wear it inside out with the light gray side showing which I actually prefer to the striped side.
I received a request to try on this plaid shirt but it was actually on my wish list. My usual size XXS regular fit me well for a loose, boxy fit. I like the fit but the 100% rayon material makes me wary since it tends to shrink which means it may not fit the same once laundered. If you have this top did it wash well?
This white tee is really cute with the embroidered flowers and scalloped sleeves. My usual size XSP is a relaxed fit but I’m concerned that the chest and shoulders may be too snug if I try to size down. This tee would have been great for the spring and summer. It doesn’t look like a fall top at all. The material is thin but it’s not too sheer with a nude bra.
The soft limestone color is a light neutral pink with grey undertones in person. This sweater is really soft and runs true to size. I was hopeful it would be a keeper but I didn’t like the drop shoulders which make the upper arms look like dolman sleeves. I didn’t find the fit very flattering on me so it’s going back. The 100% nylon material is very soft to the touch.
These sneakers are so cute with the leopard accent stripe and I ordered them for an upcoming sponsored post for Walmart (I’m on my third online order trying to find items that fit well). My usual size7 is a bit loose since I’m wearing them without socks. My husband keeps commenting about how cute they look. They’re only $16.98 but they remind me of Adidas Stan Smith style sneakers.
Thanks for stopping by!
