I almost forgot about the cutest item in the whole rollout! I pre-ordered the Tippi Sweater in Bee Embellishment but my store also had it so I was able to try it on before I received it.
~ Short-Sleeve Popover in Chambray, size 6 ~
I can’t decide between this popover shirt which is one of my favorite styles or the chambray shirtdress. I think I might get a little more use out of the shirt, since I also have the Off-the-shoulder Dress in Chambray. The size 6 fit but was a snug on the sides of the chest. I think I would stay with the 6 though as the 8 would be completely shapeless and baggy.
~ Sammi Pant in Polka Dot, size 30 ~
I was not a fan of the Teddie pants and was hoping these might be a little more to my liking. The polka dot are unique and are easily wearable now (if it wasn’t so darn hot), as well as into the Fall. The size 30 was too big, especially in the front. They also seemed to have excess and bagginess below the butt, in back. That disrupted the flow of the pant leg. The rise is higher on these, which I like, but not in this size.
I was very excited to see this sweater IRL. The embellishment is up near the shoulder with three little jeweled bees. This a little thin and will require a cami underneath though you might be able to get away with just a nude bra. Medium is my normal Tippi size and this fit well. I’ve since tried a Petite Medium in the Tippi Sweater and the hemline is a little shorter and the sleeve is more 3/4-length. I’ll consider the petite sizing in Tippi’s going forward since the that is how it should really fit. I cannot wait until cooler weather to wear this sweater!
~ Sammi Pant in Polka Dot, size 29 ~
The size 29 was a much better fit, though still a little baggy in front. The leg line is not baggy in this size. I think my best fit would be a Petite 29, which would make them cropped, as they should be. But the polka dot are not offered in Petite so this size will work. And I don’t mind that they are not cropped. I don’t want to have them altered as it might mess up the little flare kick at the bottom.
I brought the Sammie Pant in Polka Dot home with me. I’m happy with the size and already have a few outfits planned around them. And the bee sweater will be front and center in my closet waiting for that first cool breeze.
