I usually wear navy as my dark color. My personal shopper sent this to me with some things I sent back. This is a nice shirt. One can dress it up or down. The fabric is wrinkle resistant. I also like that it is polka dot. Polka dots come and go n popularity and I am glad to see it. It has interesting buttons. It gets me away from navy blue.
I was concerned the sleeves would be super puffy. They are not at all. The buttons add a very nice detail. And... hopefully you like orange but it's ORANGE... no doubt about it. It's a very cheerful bight orange. I love it!
I personally can't get enough of a puff sleeve. I just think it's such a flattering shape. This blouse is lightweight enough to wear alone in warmer weather or as a layering piece in cooler weather. The cuffs have a tortoise shell look. The fabric has a hint of stretch. The length hits at the hip. The chai color looks like butternut squash soup. You can choose your normal size. For fit reference, I'm 5'6", 153lbs and a 34G bra size. My normal size 10 fit fine.

This Lark & Ro top is beautifully sewn. The shoulder gathers are particularly sharp. (I’m not much of a seamstress but that has to be a tricky bit.) I love the shape on me, except possibly for ¾ length sleeves, which are more like bracelet on my arms. (I normally take about 1.25 inches on a sleeve if it’s an easy alteration, but I’m not up to dealing with the details of a button cuff.)
The photo on my monitor from this page suggests a tan-ish orange color, but in person it’s a decided mustard with I think a very slight olive undertone. Not my fave but will pair very well with navy pieces! The sizing is fairly fitted but will still drape beautifully over anything that isn’t to thick with gathers or whatever.
I appreciate well-made above other considerations with clothes. My only complaint here would be that there is a pretty big 3 button placket in the back and I would really only need one button to get my big head out of the shirt! (The other two buttons are invisibly folded into the placket but it’s still somewhat noticeable.)
The color is a little brighter, not as Chi Tea as the image shows. The material wrinkles easily and needs to be hung up right after being removed from the dryer, else ironed. The sleeves hems were a little looser then I would have preferred, but I think matches the look of the model, they just felt awkward as they would rise up my arm, get stuck, and then fall back down. The puff sleeve is adorable and I particularly like the large buttons on the back. The top was true to size and fit very nice and is flattering. Overall, I really like the shirt, but need to get used to the end of the sleeves. I did receive compliments the first time I wore it also!
