I love swiss dot tops and this light blue top is so cute with the half sleeves (it’s available in light blue and blush pink on the retailers direct website in case it sells out on T.J Maxx). I’m not familiar with the W5 Concepts brand but I took a chance and ordered size S which fits like size XXS regular or XS petite. For size reference I’m 5′ 2.5″ and currently 112 pounds.
I recently re-ordered these flats in a full size up (to size 8) when the Ecru color popped back in stock and I used $40 in referral credits towards this pair. I’m still breaking them in since the back collar feels stiff and it comes up slightly higher in this size which digs into the back of my ankles when I walk. The flats stay on my heels despite going up a full size so I don’t have an issue with my heels coming out when walking. I don’t remember my usual size 7 or size 7.5 doing this (reviewed here and I was able to resell both via Poshmark) but both sizes were too snug for comfort and the material doesn’t have much give. I realized that I needed to go up a full size in The Point so that my toes don’t feel like they’re being squished plus my feet swell if I’ve been walking for a while or when the weather gets warmer. The tip of The Point flats are very narrow and if you have slightly wider feet like me then they can be so snug so that you’ll see the outline of your toes through the material. The outer sides of your feet may also feel the gap between the edge of the removable insert and the shoe if you have slightly wider feet. I like the look of the flats but I wish they had better padding.
In comparison, I also have The Sneaker style which run true to size but I went up half a size for comfort and extra room for my toes since they have a slightly narrow fit across the top of the feet. The Sneakers are not as narrow as The Point since the round toe box is more comfortable. Click here for a comparison of the removable inserts for these two Rothy’s styles with measurements (correction: The Sneaker’s insert is 3.25″ at the widest part). Thank you for using my referral link for $20 off your first pair of Rothy’s!

LOFT TRY-ONS & OTHER RECENT REVIEWS
I thought that the above top was really pretty with the laser cut details and scallop hem. The material is thinner so it’s sheer and requires a layer cami underneath. Size XXS is a very loose and flowy fit and it fits more like size S so you may want to size down one or two sizes for a better fit. Size XXS measures 40″ at the chest and 42″ at the start of the scallop hem (where the laser cut detail begins).

There’s no sales tax on clothes in Massachusetts unless a single item is over $175 since I sometimes get questions about that. I love this Ann Taylor ribbed button front midi dress (I took my usual size XSP and I will review it soon) which is $50.99 after discounts today for ALL Rewards card members.

I though this top was so cute and it also comes in light grey with white textured dashes but I think that the black version stands out more. The arm holes are cut a little bit more generously than I prefer but otherwise my usual size fits well.
I ended up reordering this white eyelet top in my usual size when it went on sale last week. It’s a better fit in my usual size for a flowy fit and it’s fully lined so it’s not too sheer for a white top.
LOFT Smocked Square Neck Puff Sleeve Tee, size XXS regular | Joe’s Jeans The Icon Cropped Jeans With Cut Hem, size 25 (review here) | Cushionaire Elane Sandals (true to size) | Click here to view the clip from my try-on
I was hoping this top would fit but it’s too wide in my usual size and it’s also slightly sheer since it’s not lined.
These white sandals are really light and comfortable and I took them my usual size. I also got a pair for my sister in law in grey since her size was sold out in the white color. Note that the buckles are functional.
These shorts run true to size but I didn’t like the wide pant legs on me. I also tried the wide leg pants but the really wide pant legs (23″ circumference per pant leg) were an awkward length on me (they have a 25″ inseam). Perhaps I need to try them in the petite size for a better fit.
LOFT The High Waist Cut Off Denim Short in Mid Indigo, size 24/00 regular | Click here to view the clip from my try-on
I’ve been curious about these denim shorts and I finally ordered them to try but I didn’t like the wash in person. The waist fits true to my usual size at LOFT but the cut and style makes me look very square in the hips.
I was happy to see this top on the T.J. Maxx website since it’s one of my favorite LOFT purchases almost a year ago. Once I received it I checked the care label and it has the same product number (515656) but the ‘Lou & Grey for LOFT’ label was crossed out. The white color above runs smaller and shorter than the lavender and dark grey colors as shown below. Out of all of the colors the dark grey color’s fabric wears the best over time.
I ordered this set of 3 masks and the black and white heart print is so cute. These masks are made of a thinner fabric so double masking is still breathable even with two layers on.
I loved the look of these mother-of-pearl pieces so I ordered a few of the silver tone pieces (rhodium plated brass) to try but I only kept the above bracelet. They’re very dainty and light.

c/o SoGoodSoWood Personalized Leather Keychain in blush
I received this personalized keychain in addition to some other gifted items for Ralphie here that I received from SoGoodSoWood who had reached out to me via Instagram. The 1″ personalized leather dog collar and 1″ leash I received where too bulky for Ralphie but I think this width would be better size for a medium to large size dog. I forgot to specify that I wanted the 1/2″ collar when picking out the collar. The initial makeup pouch I received had a noticeable gap at the end even with the zipper fully zipped but the other items were good quality if you want to order some personalized items as presents.

Monarch Specialties C-Table | Project 62™ 16 x 20 Framed Watercolor Blue Abstracts (3pk) | Click here to view a clip of the c-table
I’ve been looking for a minimalist c-table and I ordered one of these c-tables first before I ordered another one. It’s sturdy and I like the minimalist look.
Lastly, I finally got this 9 cube organize shelf which replaced a black shoe shelf that I’ve been trying to get rid of for ages. There were a lot of online reviews that mentioned the shelves were badly damaged upon arrival but the set I received was almost perfect except for one corner which we faced towards the back corner of the wall (click here and here to see a close up of the damaged corner). The pieces are not packed with any pieces of cardboard or foam inbetween so it increases the likelihood of damage in transit or upon delivery. It was very helpful to have my husband help build this shelf because I would have built it with a lot of noticeable gaps or snapped one of the wooden pegs if left to my own devices. My brother in law has the Ikea KALLAX shelf which is sturdier if you’re able to get to an IKEA and if the shelf is in stock in stores. My little sister who is an avid IKEA fan informed me that the Target 13″ bins fit the KALLAX shelves. My husband loves bottled water so his water gets a spot on the shelf here until I clear out another cabinet in the kitchen while I prefer using the Brita filter.
