It’s been a long time but I’m back with a review of some of my favorite purchases. Spring and summer are my favorite seasons to shop for. I haven’t ordered from Ann Taylor much these last few years but I had to have this striped blouse after I saw it on a sales associate while doing a return. I took it in my usual size XXS regular. For size reference, I’m 5′ 2.5″ and currently 110 pounds.

I prefer to be hands free and I used this versatile backpack so much that I got it in white and then again in black in October for $81.87 after discounts. I reviewed it in white last year here.

I love this pretty blouse with laser cut and eyelet details and scallop hem. I took my usual size XXS regular.

Similar to Ann Taylor, I haven’t shopped at Banana Republic Factory in a long time. I ordered a few items to try but this shirt is the only one I kept. I took the striped button down in size XS petite which is an oversized fit. It’s also available in other colors. The material is thicker and drapes well. I also want it in white but I think white sold out quickly in petites and I’m not sure if XXS regular would be a similar fit.

I took this J.Crew Emilie cardigan sweater in size XS. It’s a very cropped length. I used fashion tape to keep the button gap closed mid-chest.

I ordered this year’s J.Crew Factory women’s striped dress in size XXS and the girl’s version for comparison. I kept the girl’s version in size 14 since the shorter length is more flattering since I’m petite. Girl’s size 14 is 2″ shorter in length and the sleeves are 1″ shorter than women’s size XXS.

I took this Uniqlo cropped t-shirt in size XS which is an oversized fit. The cotton material is thicker and the white color isn’t see through. I wanted to try XXS for comparison but it sold out in the colors I wanted (white and black). I took the Eileen Fisher cropped wide leg pants in size PP which fit me well.

    Hi Jess! Your link for the striped girls drsss shows it’s sold out but if you search the dress on their site it comes up in all sizes. You might want to update your link!
