Fitting Room Snapshots (Ann Taylor, Banana Republic)



Happy Friday! 

I made a quick stop at Ann Taylor 
(new: everything 40% off + FREE SHIPPING. Ends 10/5)  to check out one thing (it’s always just one thing, isn’t it!?!). 

(Banana Republic 40% off. Exclusions apply)

My previous Ann Taylor try-ons

I’ve been looking for over a year for a pair of booties that are kinda like a sock bootie but not quite sock booties. Basically soft and semi-fitted around ankles but not the actual sock-bootie kind (confused yet? lol).  With a realistically wearable heel height.  And ones that look just as amazing with skirt/dresses as with jeans.

Long story short, saw a pair online at Ann Taylor and to my luck they had them in store. Can’t tell you how happy I am that they not only fit perfectly but the heel height is perfect. 

They never look as good on pictures as in person but these are just so so chic! 

Wearing them in all pics below. 

Ah, so happy about these. 

You already know this outfit below is so me. And paired with booties it’s office appropriate (depending on your office dress code). 

Cardigan is in size Small and I love the fit (xs was sold out so I can’t compare but it was not big at all). 

Jeans are in size 0 which is what I wear in AT jeans (otherwise size 26).  Love the dark wash. Dark wash jeans tend to be a bit dressier than other washes.  (LOVE these with pearl details too)

White tee is in xs and fits tts. I wouldn’t size up in this one. The white is a little sheer though but not bad, especially if used for layering.  It comes in more color. Great basic!

This checked jacket… so much cuter in person. XS was sold out, tried on Small and it actually fits fine.  I almost think xs might be small in shoulders if worn with a thicker sweater.  I liked the fit of Small.

Checked Belted Coat in Small


Great top for Fall.  It is NOT as low cut as on the model and the colors are not as bright as they appear online. It’s faux wrap top which I personally like better than actual wrap tops (just easier to wear).

Striped Wrap Belted Top in xs

Tried on size 2 (0 was sold out. So much stuff was sold out in my size). See how cute this dress looks with these booties.   Since this is a shift dress the fit is good and roomy.

Wish they had this pretty dress in store… it looks so cute!

Pearlized Shift Dress in size 2

a better look at the booties.  LOVE 😍


Tried on Small in this sweater (xs sold out of course).  Loved the color and style but it does require something underneath…it’s low cut and it doesn’t stay put…so flashing someone is bound to happen if you don’t secure it or wear something underneath.  It must popular because there weren’t many left in store. Available in 2 more colors.


Great Fall color (it’s not red but more rust). Love the pearl details on sleeves (I think I have about 3-4 sweaters with pearl buttons on sleeves).  It comes in 3 more colors. I also tried on off white which I liked better on me than this color.  Tried on xs in this color and it fits tts.


pretty sure I tried on Small in off white.  I’d stick to my usual size in this sweater. 

 same sweater as above


Love, love this soft and cozy tunic. That’s all I have to say about it haha.  Tried no xs and it fits tts.  And the price is not bad especially with a promo code.

  It’s not overly thick or thin… just right! It also comes in olive.  This one is a must-have in my opinion.

Noticed this one online which is also a great top. Looks comfy and it’s not overly casual.

Soft Tunic top

since the top is soft, the front can be easily tucked in front.  Need this one!

Subtle fringe. The top part fits great but a little narrow in bottom. I think I would size up in this one.


Had to make a stop at BR to check out two things which they had in store. Wish I hated both lol but I love both.

And I’m talking about this cardigan.  I thought it was cashmere when I tried it on, even though the price would have been a lot higher if it was cashmere. It long..just below my knees (I’m 5’6″).  If you’re shorter, don’t shy away from it…  I’d just recommend wearing it shoes with heels.

Long Duster cardigan – it comes in more colors


This light coat…. and it’s reversible. Both sides haves pockets. It’s like 2 for the price of 1.

Since this coat is part of BR Picks it’s excluded from current promo (sometimes they have promos with no exclusion. But not frequently enough clearly).  Tried on xs and it was a good fit. I should have tried it with a sweater though to see how it fits with something thicker on. I think it should still be good in my usual size.  Love it. Wish it was part of the promo.

Reversible Wool Coat

I liked these girlfriend jeans too. Not as loose on me as on the model. TTS

Really love these!  Didn’t see them in store.

Cami is in Small (xs sold out of course). Boxy as most are.

Isn’t the coat fab?!

My shoes are from Sole Society and while I love them, I think they’re just too narrow for my feet (Mainly my left foot. Might be selling these too).  Just can’t wear them for more than a couple of hours. Might try to stretch them out…or not. Will see 😉

Which pieces from these try-ons are your favorite?? 

Thanks for reading!
