Review: Ann Taylor Mini Pebbled Signature Tote & My Latest LOFT Sale Picks

Loving this sheer stripe dress from @loftgirl. (Size 0P pictured.) // Sign up and shop direct links to this look at www.liketk.it/sef6 @liketkit #liketkit
LOFT Sheer Stripe Dress, size 0P
LOFT Post Skinny Belt, size XS/S (runs large)
Louise Et Cie Nerine Heels (runs true to size)

If you follow me on Instagram then you may have seen that I've been carrying this Ann Taylor Mini Pebbled Signature Tote nonstop since I got it mid-August. I love the smaller size, it's very well made and holds its shape. It also looks more expensive than what I paid for it. The pretty chain strap (43" total length for a 21.5" drop) is removable and a good length for someone around my height (I'm 5' 2 1/2") when worn as a shoulder bag or cross body. For some reason I personally don't like to wear the bag as a cross body because the strap digs into my chest.

The only improvements I would like to see is if the outer pocket had a magnetic closure to keep the pocket closed. If you put more things in the bag then the outer pocket sticks out like a lip so I've been more mindful of what I pack inside. Finally, for peace of mind, I would prefer a zip top closure when bending over (for fear of small items slipping out), taking public transportation and walking around the city but I suppose that's the trade off for the classic, boxy shape.

LOFT Friends & Family Sale Alert & Reviews


LOFT Twill moto jacket in XSP
LOFT Twill moto jacket - size XSP
H&M ruffled top (old)
Old Navy Rockstar legging jeans
J.Crew Sloane pumps
Gucci Abbey shopper tote (old, similar here)

LOFT is offering 40% off until tomorrow with code SHAREIT for their Friends and Family promotion. If you're a card holder this promotion also includes their Lou & Grey collection. The other day they were offering an additional 10% off for card holders due to technical difficulties so I ordered a few things to try. Here are some of my recent try-ons and pairings that I've been hoarding on my phone since my previous post:

Summer to fall pairing. Scallop cami and moto jacket (both shown in XSP) from @loftgirl. // Sign up and shop these products via @liketkit www.liketk.it/adg4 #liketkit
LOFT Twill moto jacket - size XSP
LOFT Laser Cut Scallop Cami - size XSP
New York & Company Pleated Skirt - size 0
J.Crew Sloane pumps
Louis Vuitton Trevi PM
 
For the moto jacket, I like the fit of XXSP better and will see if I can exchange for the slimmer fit since the smaller size is currently sold out online. The jacket is a bit boxy but it's really soft and feminine and it would work for the fall especially when layered.

LOFT Blue Underlay Lace Skirt, 00
 LOFT utility blouse in XXSP (old)
Louboutin Simple 100 pumps
Louis Vuitton Lumineuse PM

The lace skirt is gorgeous but it runs a little loose so this will probably go back (I've been trying to slim down a big for our wedding in a few weeks). I may try the top instead. It's a beautiful color and weight for the fall.

Loving this @anntaylor tiered tee dress  // www.liketk.it/2qlW @liketkit #liketkit
Ann Taylor tiered tee dress - size XSP
J.Crew Sloane pumps
Coach Factory Leather Cora Domed Satchel
 
I love this tiered tee dress because it's so easy to throw on for work and play. It easily dresses up or down. It's also currently on final sale at Ann Taylor.

LOFT Linen Cotton Denim Jacket in XXSP
LOFT Linen Cotton Denim Jacket - size XXSP
LOFT Striped Zig Zag Tiered Dress - size XSP (old review here, maternity version still available)

LOFT butterfly print racerback cami dress in 0P
LOFT butterfly print racerback cami dress - size 0P
J.Crew Sloane pumps

I received the butterfly print dress in 0P a few weeks ago but the chest seems to pull a bit so I re-ordered it in 00 to see if it fits me any better.

LOFT Chevron Jacquard Skirt Dress in 0P
LOFT Chevron Jacquard Skirt Dress - size 0P
Zara sandals (old)

I didn't end up getting this dress but I've seen it on other people and it's really cute so it may be worth trying on.

LOFT zip front field jacket in XXSP
LOFT zip front field jacket - size XXSP

This picture doesn't do the field jacket any justice but I really liked the fit and it isn't as boxy as some of their other jackets. I ordered it in both colors so I could decide which to keep.

LOFT camp pants in 00P

How cute are these camp pants? They come in other fall friendly colors too. I tried them on in 00P but they run big in the waist and supposedly stretch out so I haven't ordered them. I really wish LOFT's pants were more true to size.
