Happy Thursday everyone!
Thank goodness it’s almost the weekend, wooohooo!
As usual, I stopped at Ann Taylor to check out two things in person and as usually it’s never just two.
I did tell myself that I need to stay away from sweaters. I have enough sweaters (even though winters are long up here lol #excuses)
If you’re trying to stay away from certain clothing items, I highly recommend not trying them on. Don’t even make eye contact.
That advice didn’t work for me though. I came home with five sweaters. I did get some good deals because I got extra card holder discounts + I had rewards. #justified #excusesagain
Let’s get to the goods….

This sweater! Major YES! Some reviews said it runs big…I personally don’t think it does. It’s not meant to be fitted. The top part is a tad wider and it narrows a bit toward the bottom. But it doesn’t make it look bad in any way, IMHO.
I love peplum-y tops. They flatter the waist. This one is in size Medium though but I purchased it in Small. Could have probably even gotten XS but didn’t want it to be too fitted. It is just a bit itchy. So keep that in mind if your skin is too sensitive. Comes in 3 colors and I got the one below even though I kind of want it in Pepper Gray now. Hmmmm…
Was not planning on getting this cardigan but, darn, I couldn’t resist. It’s on the heavier side, almost like a coat. XS wasn’t available but Small fits fine. Reviews says it sheds…I didn’t wear it long enough to notice. I would expect to see white fuzz on black tops or jeans, but if it’s a ton a) won’t wear it with black clothing b) might return it. I hope it doesn’t come to that as I do love it. I’ll keep you posted.
Open Cardigan in size Small
Love the bell sleeve…even though it might appear as they’re just way too big (know what I mean?) Not sure how the sleeves will fit with coat (need to try that). It’s a bit on the thicker side so it can be worn alone, or with a long sleeve tee underneath, in Fall weather. I love the length, great for over leggings too. It is slightly oversized, you could size down. I did get xs, and I like the, just slightly, oversized feel.
Bell Sleeve Sweater in xs
Quite nice sweater but I like it better in the other two colors. I have a couple that are very similar it, so this one stayed behind.
The reason I went to the store, THIS dress! I was going to order it in Tall online, but wanted to see which size I needed. It comes in red and black in Regular and Petite but not in black in Tall. So I ordered it in red (tall).
Gorgeous dress in size 2
Lots of cute skirts. Lots!
Jacquard Plated Skirt – super cute!
Sweater – see below
Loved both pieces. The skirt is even prettier in person. I will look great with tights too (perfect for date nights 🙂
Can’t see the ruffle details on this cardigan. I didn’t care for the fabric at all.
Another super cute skirt for Fall/Winter.
Skirt in size 2 / Cardigan in xs
Cute top but I had slightly higher hopes for it. Perhaps I would have liked in better in a different color. I think I would like this sweater better.
Top comes in 2 more colors
Gorgeous print, quality fabric. Wish it came in Tall (I did grab a size too small though). It gets great reviews too.
I had high hopes for this dress but I wish the fabric was a bit thicker (it’s not thin by any means…it just wasn’t what I’ve been on the hunt for :(. But it did fit me better than most sheath dress from AT.
Ponte Sheath Dress in size 0
If you’re in the market for this type of skirt, you’ll like this one. And it has pockets.
And a few from LOFT
Sweater / Skirt
Soft top (as Lou and Gray top are). Don’t see this online, but here is a similar one
Tried on XS but was tight over rear end. Sized up to Small.
Cardigan – soft and cozy. Almost sold out.
Wishing you all a fantastic day!
