This is very similar to my green ruffle front shell from H&M. It comes in two colors – northern twilight (color I am wearing) and shooting star (gray/taupe). I ordered both but got two of the same colors 🙁
Likes: Even though the material is 100% polyester, it’s a nice poly material that almost feels like silk. I had to double check the tag to see what it was made out of because it was so soft.  I was afraid the scoop neck was going to be too low-cut like my H&M top (had to bring it up to wear to work) but it falls high enough so no cleavage.  The tiny front pocket is adorable and adds a sportswear-inspired touch. I like that I can dress this up under a blazer or wear it casually with jeans.  The shirttail hem is nice to wear it un-tucked. I don’t normally wear my shirts un-tucked but this one is short enough where it doesn’t overwhelm my frame. My favorite part is the color. It’s even more gorgeous in person.
Dislikes:  The arm holes are a tad too big but do-able. The width of the top is a bit wide making tucking in slightly tricky when worn alone.

Verdict: Pricey but I’m keeping since I had a gift card.

  1. One of my favorite outfits ever!! I love the neutral colors with the pop of blue. 🙂 I am not normally a pants person, but seeing those LOFT pants makes me wanna get a pair for myself! Does LOFT still sell similar pants? I know I've seen some LOFT ones just like those on Sydney as well…

  2. Personally, I really like it. The color and the size just works for your shape. The arm hole is okay. Big is definitely better than too small.
    Love the blazer with the ruffle top also.
