I know a few other petite bloggers have this blouse, but had trouble finding the posts. If you've blogged about this blouse, please feel free to leave a link to your post in the comments below!
While at LOFT last week, I actually fell in love with something (rare). The stretchy knit "scuba" material is back in the form of a cropped blazer with 3/4 length sleeves. I love the versatile caramel color. Unlike other LOFT blazers I've tried on...the fit was near-perfect on me (I prefer the sleeves folded up in a cuff) and just look at the flattering, fitted back view!

I also gravitated toward a lightweight button-up blouse in a light dusty lavender (not shown). My size was already gone so I tried on this pink color, which I'm not a fan of at all. I included these photos only to show how narrow the shoulders are and how slim the overall fit is. The sleeves were also a perfect length on me. This would look great tucked in and is a feminine alternative to stuffier button-up dress shirts.

The color I want (dusty lavender) is in-stores but not yet online!
I will be keeping an eye out for both items when the next big LOFT sale hits!
Readers - do you also love adding florals and brights to beat the winter blues?
