a lovely living

Ok ladies, LOFT has their Friends & Family sale going on (ie 40% off your purchase when you use code: FRIENDS), so I’m taking you back into the dressing room and sharing some of my favorites with you! I found a little bit of everything as I browsed around the store and that’s one of the reasons they are a favorite of mine. You can go in hunting down a dress to wear to a wedding or looking for the most comfortable pair of sweats to lounge around in and they’ve got you covered! Let’s jump in and I’ll show you what I found…

Let’s start with this beauty because it topped the charts for me! The shade of teal is gorgeous and the shape is on point! If you need a dress for an upcoming wedding, check this one out! It fit pretty true to size for me although it was slightly snug around the chest/underarm area, so I probably could have sized up one.

Let’s keep the ball rolling with the dresses and switch over to this sweet option. I included it on my Easter Dress post, but it’s even better in person. True to size and very comfortable too!

This lace, off the shoulder dress was the last one that I tried on. Beautiful, rich color and a loose fit, perfect for any upcoming parties on your calendar!

This sweater is lovely (check out the back and other colors available) and could easily go from being paired with denim or cut-offs to a skirt to take you right into the office. And about this skirt…oh, my goodness! I’m totally obsessed with the bow detail which takes it from any old black skirt to hello beautiful! It was hard to get a great shot, but I tried…

I promise these denim pants are not this bright in person! They lean much more towards mustard and look great paired with navy and much less like I’m heading to a sports game and forcing the color, lol! The sweater is super fun. Lightweight, with a pretty ruffle detail and it also comes in a soft white. Here’s a better look…

I love this embroidered top. I’d love to see it with white denim and some cognac wedges.

I’m going to move past this one quickly because you probably know I have some weird weakness for lightweight, green jackets and I just can’t get another one….although I’d love to!!

This is a great, cold shoulder casual top and it’s a great price too (especially on sale!). I love it paired with these pink denim pants, but it would look great with any number of bottoms this summer.

Here’s a better look at the detail.

Moving on to this boatneck sweatshirt that I fell in love with. Don’t get me wrong, I love dressing up, but this is my real life ;)  And when cute combines with casual, I’m all in! These are the raw hem denim I’ve been wearing regularly, also from LOFT, and you may have seen these shoes on my Instagram that I recently grabbed at Target (love them!).

I then threw on these striped linen pants from Lou & Grey. I loved them but they were slightly snug on my calves, and when I sized up the waist was too large. Bummer for me because I really liked them! I do run into that issue every so often, so I’m pretty sure it’s particular to just me! I still recommend them ;)

Being a lover of all the good t-shirts, I had to try this one on…I actually went back into the fitting room just for it! It’s Lou & Grey, so it’s super soft but it does run small, or very fitted. I’m typically an XS/S but I went with a medium here and love the way it fits.

I hope you get a chance to get in or browse online if you haven’t already! And don’t forget to use code FRIENDS at checkout! Let me know what goodies you find :)
