With Christmas and NYE right around the corner, Loft has been having some amazing sales! I couldn’t miss sharing them with you, so I stopped in for a quick December Loft try-on! We actually all went on a snow day, and thankfully both girls were happy as can be. (Ellie slept the entire time, so that counts as happy, right?!) ?
December Loft try-on
As far as sizing goes, I am 5’7.5″ and currently a size 29/8 or a medium. I will be sharing each size I’m wearing as well as sizing recommendations! Be sure to check out the details below each photo!
Velvet Kimono + Scalloped Cami
Despite the dirty dressing room mirror ?, this kimono is gorgeous in person! The colors are deep jewel-tones, and of course the velvet is so soft. Although I size down in these types of pieces at Loft typically, I found that this one ran true to size. I tried the XS/S but would have preferred the medium! This kimono is one that you can wear casually and to fancier events! Imagine it layered over an LBD or even a black jumpsuit to a winter wedding, party or even NYE.
This scalloped cami is a great basic that also can be dressed up and down. I loved the higher neckline. This is one you could wear to the office! I’m in a medium. There was a little pulling at the bust line, so if you may want to size up if you have a larger bust.

Leopard Cardigan + Scalloped Cami
I made a beeline for this leopard cardigan when I saw it in store! It has a very relaxed fit. (In fact, I recommend sizing down one.) The only drawback is the lack of pockets, but it drapes really nicely and has side slits. (Not currently online! I’ll update soon!)

Velvet Dot Top
This velvet top definitely has a dressier-work vibe in my opinion. I love the feminine details: the slight puff sleeve, the light dots, and the empire waist are all girly touches. Fit is oversized. I recommend sizing down.

Tie Back Sweater + Velvet pants
If there is a top with a bow, I will find it. ?I love the color of this one. Fit is oversized and not super flattering on me. I would definitely size down one! Also worth noting: there is a slight itch to this one if you’re sensitive! In all honesty, I prefer this one from Target! Almost identical style, no itch! ?
I also had to grab these jeans after trying the Old Navy ones. These are definitely softer than the ON version. They are mid-rise and quite stretchy. I tried the 29, but would have preferred the 28. Size down one!

Fair Isle Swing Top + Velvet Pants
If you can’t tell from my smile, this sweater was my absolute favorite. I love the fair isle design. The hearts are the cutest detail. Aaaand it has a swing cut! This one was not itchy at all. I just loved it all around. Size down one! I’m in the small.

Stripe Tunic Sweater + Velvet Pants
I didn’t even realize this one was a tunic when I picked it up, but I like it even more because of it. It’s the perfect length to wear with leggings and will also take you straight into spring! Fit is TTS.
Sweater (M) | Velvet Pants (29/8 – size down one)
Another absolute favorite! I love how the stripes are neutral but the pink is a fun addition. This is another option that will take you through spring! Fit is a little more fitted than most at Loft. So, if you prefer a more relaxed fit you could size up one.
Cowl Neck Tunic
I really wanted to love this one. The stripes and grey tones are right up my alley, and it is SO SOFT. But it was a little thin and see-through. I could even see my nude bra in the dressing room. Plan to layer with a cami if you like this one!
This is another one I wanted to compare to an Old Navy version. The quality is definitely higher with this one. I love the puff sleeve detail! It really dresses it up! There wasn’t a medium in store, so I tried the small. Size down one.
Tee (S – size down one)
Eyelash Sweater Dress
I’ve been loving the eyelash trend lately! This dress is actually from the Lou & Grey line, which you know means that it’s super comfy! Fit is relaxed, but I would probably stay with the medium. This might be a lot of look for some of y’all, so if you’d prefer just a sweater, I love this one from Target!
Full disclosure: this is not something that I would’ve picked up on my own, but Layla saw it and really wanted me to try it on! (You can see her peeking in the picture ?) I did think it was pretty cute once I had it on! It’s certainly a fun option to switch it up from the typical beanie! If you have a fashion-forward friend, it could also make a cute gift!
Postpartum and ponchos are just made for each other, especially if you’re breastfeeding! I love the texture of this one and the color. It is a dusty lilac/mauve. The only thing I didn’t love was that the sides are not fastened. I prefer when they aren’t open all the way around! Size down one if you can. I’m in the XS/S.

Faux Fur Scarf
This scarf is so soft, y’all. SO SOFT. My store only had the pink and lilac versions but it also comes in a brown and cream, which are much more neutral!
Another adorable accessory and gift idea. Of course I gravitated toward the leopard, but they also have two velvet options and the winter floral.
Clutch (OS) – Also comes in velvet + floral prints
Leopard Ear Muffs
Layla couldn’t resist. I actually turned around for a moment to look at something and then saw her wearing them. She approves. ?These also come with a matching scarf!
Ear Muffs (OS)
I LOVE the beret on you, and I’d love to have one (but would have to have the guts to wear it I think? Love this try on and your honest feedback.
In love with everything. The beret♥️
I keep telling myself that I don’t need more clothes and then I see stuff I must have lol. I love that leopard cardigan but with my luck, it will have a lot of wool in it. Seems like way more of their sweaters and cardigans all have wool this year and I am allergic 🙁
I love the beret on you! It’s something I love to look at but don’t think I could wear it lol!
Great try on! I love all of these pieces & keep referring back as I get extra money to buy the items.
Hope you’re enjoying the holidays with your family! I miss seeing your face on my Instagram stories but completely understand how crazy & busy this time of year is, especially with having littles! I would love to see you do another Q&A sometime… those are my fav!!
Love your blog & your style.
