I first ordered this fleece tunic in the ivory color but size XS was snug so the side entry pockets looked bulky. I re-ordered the black color in size S and the relaxed fit is more flattering due to the pocket placement. It’s a similar style to the Dudley Stephens Cobble Hill Turtleneck which retails for $158 but this one is only $16.99 and available in a few colors at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls. For some reason it’s $19.99 at Sierra. It’s made out of 100% recycled polyester (more specifically EcoYarn which is recycled green fiber produced after beverage bottle consumption).

The measurements of size S are as follows: 15.5″ shoulders, 37″ chest, 35″ waist, 38″ hips, 42″ along the bottom hem, 27″ total length (I’m 5′ 2.5″ and 23″ tops hit me mid-hip), 23.5″ sleeves, 12″ upper arm circumference and 7″ wrists.

I though that this sweatshirt cardigan was so cute when I saw it in store and I ordered girl’s size XL which is a looser fit that’s perfect for layering. I had tried a similar women’s version (sold out) during a previous Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (reviewed here) but the collar was just too overwhelming.

The measurements of size XL (girl’s size 14/16) are as follows: 15.5″ shoulders, 40″ chest, 42″ along the bottom hem, 20″ total length, 26″ sleeves, 14″ upper arm circumference and 7″ wrists.

My friend Su (we often take the same size in bottoms and she took size XS) recommended these black leggings to me. I accidentally ordered them in size S but they’re very comfortable and not too snug. I like the side pockets for your cell phone. The 7/8 length is the perfect petite friendly ankle length leggings on me. The measurements of size S are as follows: 9.5″ rise, 23″ waist (stretches easily to 30″), 24.5″ inseam and it has an 8″ ankle opening. The material is 75% polyester and 25% spandex so it has a ton of stretch. Update 11/27: I ended up reordering the black leggings in size XS since they were $17.50 for Black Friday and they fit more snug but they’re still comfortable. Size XS is a very skin tight look on me through the legs (my husband kept commenting how tight the looked) so I prefer the look of size S since I don’t need the extra compression in the smaller size.

I also love this rug I got for my desk and try-on corner. I still need to get a rug pad for it. Ralphie has been randomly  sleeping on top of the rug or taking his snacks to eat in this corner ever since I laid it down last week.

I’ve been eyeing this sweater online and I loved this poncho sweater after seeing it on both Lilly and Karen‘s try-ons. My usual size is a relaxed fit and it also comes in a few other colors. I used the $25 just-for-you gift in my email during the recent sale with free shipping and I got it for only $5.93.

Thanks for stopping by!
