I love the pretty colorful flecks in this sweater. Here is a clip of the flecked detail in good lighting. My usual size XSP is an oversized fit so I called LOFT Customer Service to exchange it for a size down while keeping the sale price I paid last week on the first Tuesday of the month (explanation of the combined discounts in the captions of this post on my Insta Shop). The measurements of size XSP are as follows: 38″ chest, 38″ along the bottom before the split hem, 23″ sleeve length, 25.25″ total length in the front and 27″ total length in the back. For size reference I’m 5′ 2.5″ and currently 111 pounds.

This coated canvas bag is one of my favorite recents find from T.J. Maxx for $79.99. It’s made in France by a new-to-me brand called Lancaster Paris and the color, style and print reminds me of Goyard. The bag even came with a little pouch/wristlet that is removable as seen in this Instagram stories highlight (slides 4-6). Marshalls and Nordstrom Rack also carry some Lancaster Paris styles for less.

I ordered one size up in these jeans based on the other online reviews. The waist and hips fit me fine but the pant legs look looser and they fit similar to mom jeans on me. The measurements of size 26/2P are as follows: 28″ waist, 9″ rise, 24″ inseam and 10″ ankle opening.

I took a chance and ordered these cropped jeans since the website said that they had a 25″ inseam and they looked extremely short on the model in the online stock image. They’re stretchy and comfortable and the lighter wash is perfect for spring and summer. Size 25 fits like my usual size 25 petite at LOFT. The measurements of size 26 are as follows: 28″ waist, 9″ rise, 25″ inseam and 9″ ankle opening.

This dark wash is called Moscow on the tag of the jeans. They’re very stretchy and fit more like jeggings/leggings. Since I have thinner legs I prefer this style since other types of denim styles tend to stretch out in the rear and become baggy through the pant legs on me by the end of the day. The pair I received had a small hole in one of the pant legs along the outer seam so I may reorder them and I hope to receive a better pair that isn’t defective. The dye they used for the dark wash bleeds so I will also have to try to soak the jeans in a cold water bath with cup vinegar (as explained on this site). The measurements of size 25P are as follows: 8″ rise, 25″ inseam and 7.5″ narrow ankle opening. Update 2/9: I may order this new dark wash from Express instead since it would be preferable to dealing with a pair of jeans that bleeds.

This pretty new blouse is also available in white here. The fabric is thin and perfect for spring and summer. I didn’t like how the blouse drapes awkwardly across my smaller chest but it’s worth trying since the embroidery on the sleeves is absolutely gorgeous if it fits you well. Size XXS measurements are as follows: 35″ chest, 38″ along the bottom hem, 23″ total length and 21″ sleeve length.

LOFT Cat Soiree New Crew Tee, size XXS regularJ.Crew Juliette collarless sweater-blazer, size XXS regular (review here) | LOFT Cat Soiree New Crew Tee, size XXS regular | J.Crew

This cat tee is so cute and my usual size is a relaxed fit. It’s a thin tee but not terribly see through since I don’t see the outline of my bra from the front. I had also ordered size XS regular since I was unsure of the fit but I tried on my usual size first. I like that this tee has a straight hem versus a shirttail hem. My concern is whether I will end up with a tiny hole near the button hole of my jeans if I attempt a front tuck. I have to consciously remember to wear it with pull-on style bottoms to avoid any snags in the thin material. The measurements of size XXS are as follows: 34″ total length, 38″ along the bottom hem and 22″ total length.

LOFT Heart Split Neck Blouse, size XSPLOFT Heart Split Neck Blouse, size XSP |  Click here to view the clip from my try-on

This heart print blouse was on my wish list for a while and I ordered it to try in my usual size XSP. The overall length is shorter than I would prefer for a flowy blouse and it has a button gap issue as seen in this clip. It’s on the thinner side so you may want to wear a layering cami underneath. The measurements of size XSP are as follows: 37″ chest, 39″ along the bottom hem, 23″ sleeve length, 22″ total length in the front and 23.5″ total length in the back.

LOFT Puff Shoulder Top, size XXSLOFT Puff Shoulder Top in whisper white, size XXS (similar here and here) | Click here and here to view the clips from my try-on

This top is a thicker material, it’s off white and it runs very small since size XXS regular fits like size XXS petite. I called Customer Service to do an exchange for size XS regular which I hope will fit better since the 6.5″ cuffs were too snug hitting at the middle of my forearms. The measurements of size XXS regular are as follows: 32.5″ chest, 24.5″ along the bottom hem,18″ sleeves and 21.5″ total length. The length of this top would be best for someone 5′ and under and I’m 5′ 2.5″. Hopefully size XS is a smidge longer.

I was curious about this top but my usual size is very loose especially at the hem. The bottom circumference of size XXS regular is 38, 43″ at the chest (pit to pit) and it’s 23″ total length.

This heart print is also available as a dress, midi skirt and matching pajama tops and shorts. It fits similar to this yellow top I featured in this older post but I wish it was 100% polyester instead of 100% viscose. Size XXS measurements are as follows: 34″ chest, 34″ at the start of the peplum flounce and 24″ total length.

This waffle hoodie is a loose relaxed fit on me and I missed it in my usual size XXS regular. The white color shows my skin underneath since it’s a thinner top but the olive color isn’t see through. The measurements of size XS are as follows: 38″ chest, 39″ along the bottom hem, 24.5″ sleeve length and 24.5″ total length.
