HUGE Fall Try-On Session: LOFT, Nordstrom, H&M

Alright, y’all. You might want to settle in for a minute. This is gonna be a LONG one! Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve hit a few stores and placed some online orders. Buuuut I haven’t had a chance to share my finds with you! So today I’m bringing you a multi-retailer huge Fall try-on session! We’ll be looking at my favorites from LOFT, Nordstrom, H&M, and Shopbop! Let’s go!

 

Nordstrom

We’ll start off with a cardi because those are pretty much my fav, and this chenille one is SO SOFT. It comes in three colors and has a balloon sleeve. I’ll be honest: I loved the comfort, but not the sleeve. Size down if you want less of a statement! (I’m in a medium, but would prefer a small.)

Cardigan | Tee (40% off!) | Jeans c/o (more black skinny jean options here!) | Sneakers

 

Well, I guess this sweater shouldn’t be much of a surprise. I’ve already shared this one on Instagram, so clearly it’s a winner! I’m in a size small and recommend sizing down. (Scroll down to the next photo to see me in a size medium!) This one comes in three colors and is under $50!

Sweater (size S) | Jeans c/o | Sneakers

 

I looooved this same sweater in pink but thought the medium was a bit too wide for my taste! (Definitely size down!)

Sweater (size M) | Jeans c/o | Sneakers

 

I’m a sucker for a tshirt or sweatshirt dress, so I had to try this one. It’s just a bit too wide and unflattering on me. Also the whole asymmetrical thing happening confused me. I wish I had tried this one instead! SO much cuter IMO!

Dress (size down) | Sneakers

 

This next sweater has the cutest mock neck and wide sleeves. They’re not bell sleeves but rather wide all the way down. I’m in a small and recommend sizing down! It comes in four colors and is under $40!

Sweater | Jeans c/o | Sneakers

 

This is such a fun sweatshirt! If you want to be laid-back but still trendy, you gotta try this piece! They only had it in a large at my store, so I thought it was a little too blouse-y in the midsection. A medium would have probably been perfect!

Top | Jeans c/o | Sneakers

 

Alright, y’all. These next few items are from an online order! (Orrrr several online orders, but who is counting?)

First up is this peplum tee. I had been wanting it for about a year. When it went on sale, I jumped! For Fall, I think it’ll be perfect to wear under cardigans! Size down. I’m in a small!

Tee | Bralette | Jeans c/o | Necklace

 

How stinkin’ cute are these stripes?! I saw this sweater online and immediately ordered it. Now I wish I could say I was as happy when it came in the mail. Y’all, it’s itchy!! If you don’t mind layering with a tank underneath, go for it. Right now I’m thinking of sending it back. I’m just struggling because it is so cute!! Maybe I’ll try one of these instead? (I’m in a small.)

Sweater | Jeans c/o | Necklace

 

If I’m being honest, this top was a bit of a disappointment. I expected more for the price and just didn’t love the crinkly fabric. Maybe if I had steamed it first? The feeling is pretty meh. (I’m in a small.)

Top | Bralette | Jeans c/o | Necklace

 

Now this top on the other hand is a winner. It has such a nice drape and comes in three colors. Just throw it on with jeans or layer under a cardigan!

LOFT

Loft is currently having a 40% off sitewide sale! So don’t miss these items!!

I love the flecked design of this sweater! It comes about 3/4 length and has a mock neck. The fit is a bit wide. I’m in a medium!

I am straight up obsessed with this cardi. It has such a gorgeous drape! I’ve been wearing it non-stop and I love that it doesn’t come all the way to the wrist! Because we’ve had so many warmer days, I’ve worn it over tees about ten times the past few weeks. (I’m in a medium.)

For work or dressier occasions, this dress is SO BEAUTIFUL. Would ya look at that embroidery?! I’m in 8 but would have liked to try it in a 6 if they had it in store. I’d recommend sizing down one size!

Of course I had to try on this striped tee. All striped everything, right?! I thought this top was cute, but it wasn’t my fav. I think blouson sleeves just aren’t my jam, ya know? (I’m in a medium.)

How cute is that little bell sleeve?! This top would be perfect for work and the weekend! Wear it with dress pants or a skirt for the office and jeans for the weekend! (I’m in a medium.)

If you want a bell sleeve top for the office, this one would be perfect! It’d obviously also work for the weekend! I’m in a medium and found it very wide. I’d recommend sizing down!

Loft is killing it with the cute bell sleeve tops! And would ya look at that embroidery?! Super-pretty, no? (I’m in a medium.)

OBSESSED. That’s all I need to say about this stripe mock-neck turtleneck. It is just so cute!! Again, this is another piece that’s great for work to the weekend. As it gets colder add a cardigan, moto jacket, or blazer! It also comes in a brighter red stripe.

I’m on the jogger pant bandwagon lately and these are my latest favs. I cannot tell you how ridiculously soft these are! You are not going to want to take them off, EVER. (I’m in a small.)

For work, this is an awesome dress! My only advice is to size down. I’m in a medium, and I did not like how wide it was!

This poncho was one of my most favorite finds! It’s another comfy piece that’s perfect for lounging or just everyday! I’d wear it with sneaker and jeans for an average day, but I’ve also thrown it on over my workout clothes after leaving the gym! If you’re worried about the short sleeves, it also looks adorable layered over a long sleeve tee!

H&M

 

Anyone else feel like with sweaters it’s “the bigger the better” lately? This one is a great oversized option for wearing with jeans and leggings! Wear it with flats, booties, or over the knee boots!

If you’re on the hunt for some great basic plaids, these cotton tops are a great option! They’re under $20 and come in five color/plaid options! I sized up one size.

If you need layering tees that work for leggings, this tee is your jam!! I’m in a medium and liked the fit. It’d be perfect with long cardis! BONUS: it’s only $9.99 and comes in several colors!

The beading of this sweater is so cute! But I’ll be honest: I thought the body was a bit wide and shapeless. I would have loved to try it on in a small, but I was in a bit of a time crunch!

Y’all this layered sweater is so adorable! I’m totally kicking myself for not getting it. This would be perfect for the office and for weekend looks. Just scroll down for a few more layering option ideas! 😉 (I’m in a medium.)

Top – under $35! | Jeans | Mules

 

The style of this cardi is so cute, and I love the cut. Buuuuut it was kinda itchy. If you’re going to layer it with long sleeve things, it probably doesn’t matter much. But otherwise I’d skip this one. (I’m in a medium.)

Do yourself a favor and order this scarf ASAP!! It’s only $17 and comes in a couple colors. Y’all it is so so soft and looks way more expensive!

Even though I’m typically not a bright sweater kinda gal, I am digging this sweater! Unlike some of the others, this one was not itchy. For some reason it’s not online in this pretty yellow, but it is available in gray and orange. (I’m in a medium.)

I almost didn’t share this sweater because the itch factor was not good. But, I figured maybe I should post it as a caution! You have been warned. Do not order this sweater!! 😉

Shopbop

 

After hearing rave reviews about both of these pieces, I finally ordered them! Let’s start with the tee. It’s a great thickness and I love the fit. (I’m in a medium.) The only one I wasn’t crazy about was the white. It’s a little too see-through!

And the jeans. I’m sure y’all have seen them just about everywhere! Aaaand they kind of live up to the hype. I did have to size up one size because there is little stretch, but they are pretty darn comfy! Both are keepers!

Amazon

After receiving a gift card, I decided to order this jacket. All in all, I’m just not impressed. IMO it’s way overpriced, and the cut is a little to outdated for my taste! (I do love this tee though! I’ve had it for a while, and I still wear it tons!)

    Looks like you had some hits and misses – what’s with all the itchy sweaters? Ugh, I can’t stand that, why can’t manufacturers figure that out? Seems so easy, right? Does anyone not mind the itch? Okay, too many questions on my end but it kinda baffles me, lol. I LOVE that beautiful scarf from H & M, it’s so pretty! And those jeans look great on you!
    Happy Thursday!

      Itchy sweaters should definitely be a thing of the past! There are so many soft, comfy materials that are popular right now (like chenille!)!

    So many cute things in this post!! I have several things waiting to be tried on from Loft online orders. That grey dress….I so want to love it but it is so big! Maybe I will see if my store has it still and try a size down. I didn’t have time the day I was in there. I did buy a few other things that I did have to size down on, which usually isn’t the case for me and it makes it so much harder to shop online now!

    Itchy sweaters should be banned!! Thanks for all the honest reviews. I appreciate them!
