LOFT Shearling Mixed Media Coat, size XXSPLOFT Shearling Mixed Media Coat, size XXSP | Click here to view a clip of the coat on me unbuttoned

I haven’t ordered a lot from LOFT this year but I had to try this year’s version of the shearling coat after seeing it on @cocowyse. She’s taller than me but we both took size XXS petite. The coat runs larger and it fits more like XXS-XS regular. To take the guess work out of ordering online the measurements of size XXS petite are as follows: 38″ chest, 42″ along the bottom hem, 14.5″ shoulders, 13″ upper arm circumference, 23″ sleeve length 32″ length in the front, 34″ length in the back. This year’s version has a longer overall length than last year’s version which I reviewed here. I gave last year’s version in black to my sister-in-law but I kept the cream color from last year. I didn’t like this year’s cream color on me and found the black version more flattering. The coat is roomy enough that I can layer a light puffer vest underneath comfortably as seen here. My friend Su shared the Talbots version which is more simple if you don’t like the button tab flaps on the LOFT version.

I liked the Kate Spade Kristi Medium Flap in white (meringue) so much that I was able to buy another one in black. It went on sale for $81.87 after discounts in early October which is the best price I’ve seen this year. I bought the lighter color for $89 in the spring and reviewed it here.

I love black leggings and this 7/8 legging with a 25″ inseam continues to be my favorite as well as this new pair (I got both in size XS).

I still wear my New Balance 327 sneakers a lot but I just got the On Cloud Low Top sneakers (they run narrow and I took my usual size 7). I’ve seen someone in my building throw them in the washer when they get dirty. I love white sneakers and the option to machine wash and keep them clean/pristine.

LOFT Sparkle Bow V-Neck Cardigan, size SPLOFT Sparkle Bow V-Neck Cardigan, size SP | Gap High Rise Kick Fit Jeans in medium wash, size 25 petite | Click here to view a clip from my try-on | Schutz Arissa Flats (review here)

This bow cardigan is really pretty with the sparkly bow but the v-neck was too low.

My friend Annie recommended these Gap jeans and out of the 3 sizes I ordered (26 short, 25 petite and 26 petite) my usual size 25 petite fit me best.

LOFT Flecked V-Neck Pocket Sweater, size XXS regularLOFT Flecked V-Neck Pocket Sweater, size XXS regular (available in two other colors here) | Sofia Jeans Women’s Sofia Skinny Mid Rise Ankle Jeans, size 0 short (as seen here) | Schutz Arissa Flats (review here)

I was so sad when I took my favorite turtleneck poncho sweater out from storage and I found a stain on it that I couldn’t get out. I like this year’s version of the flecked sweater but the v-neck is wide and low cut so you may want to wear a layering camisole for modesty. It’s a boxy fit so you may want to size down but I took my usual size XXS regular.

Max Studio Long Sleeve Collar Button Top Short Tiered Mini Dress, size XSMax Studio Long Sleeve Collar Button Top Short Tiered Mini Dress, size XS (other prints available here in the same style) | Click here to view a clip of the dress on me

I love the print on this $29.99 dress for fall. It’s unlined so a slip or slip skirt is recommended. Size XS fit me well. I’m 5′ 2.5″ and currently 111 pounds.

Sage Cinched Waist Tunic, size SSage Cinched Waist Tunic, size S | HeyNuts High Waisted 7/8 Leggings with 25” inseam in carbon dust, size XS (last seen here, review here) | Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I originally purchased this top in size S (shown above) but once I saw it online I re-purchased it in size XS in both colors. It’s really soft and washes well on cold wash and air dried.

Apana Holiday Cozy Tunic Sweater, size SApana Holiday Cozy Tunic Sweater, size S | HeyNuts High Waisted 7/8 Leggings with 25” inseam in titanium, size XS (review here)

I love legging friendly tunic length tops and this sweatshirt has washed well so I have it in white and purple.

I bought a few other things which I hope I’ll have time to review before the Thanksgiving holiday but thank you for taking the time to read my reviews and use my commissioned links to shop.

Thanks for stopping by!
