a lovely living


Happy Friday, all! I know it’s such a crazy time for everyone right now, but it’s also so magical, isn’t it? Tonight we’ll be attending Jack and Madelyn’s Christmas concert which is always such a great performance. Then we actually have a somewhat calm weekend before the insanity of next week starts. The week before Christmas can be such a blur, but then everything comes to a sudden halt and I so look forward to that time.  Pj’s and cookies and movies and eggnog and family and friends, loooove it!

In case you didn’t hear, LOFT is offering 50% off your purchase once again. And since that’s when we all shop, I wanted to share my current ‘best of’s’. I’ve got a little bit of everything to share so you’re covered for holiday festive to cozying up by the fire and everything in between.

You already saw me style this sweater on Monday, so you know it made it’s way home with me. I love the cropped length and the chunky knit. It runs TTS and I’m wearing a small.

For my fellow pastel fans, here’s a pretty plaid sweater. It’s Lou & Grey, very cozy and I’d likely pair it with some of their sweats to dress it down at home.

Another great Lou & Grey sweater. I love mixing grey and brown, so I’m all about this striped combo.

I rarely wear red, but this outfit just calls for it! I love the bold pop of color from the pants and the feminine lace detail on the sweater. You’d get your wear out of it all winter long.

If I could come up with enough reasons to buy all the dressy things, trust me, I would. This top was adorable! It’s a true wrap top, fitting TTS (I’m in an XS) with a button closure at the chest.

Not that I’d necessarily wear these two pieces together, but I wanted to show you the tunic length of this sweater that’s perfect for leggings. And if you are on the lookout for some out of the ordinary leggings, the color on this velvet pair is very pretty.

I really liked this dress but it just wasn’t doing much for me. I love how it looks on the model however, and if it fell a little shorter on me I think that would have been helpful.

If you need a piece that’s festive but not over the top, this dress is worth checking out. It’s stretchy and fitting without being clingy. You could easily wear a faux fur vest and knee high boots or even tights and some heels.

This sweater dress was awesome. Not too thick, not too thin, not too short, not too long. Add leggings or knee high boots and you’re set!

These Lou & Grey leggings caught my eye not only for the tuxedo stripe but also the speckled material. I could see them being dressed up a bit just as easily as they could be dressed down.

I love the colors in this blouse. Another piece that could be very versatile in your closet. Throw on a cardi or a blazer and pair with anything from denim to trousers or a pencil skirt.

If I had to convince you on making one purchase, this would be it. I’m not kidding, this duster has become my new ‘house coat’. And if that’s not a thing, it is now! I’ve been wearing this every single day over my pj’s (it’s currently wrapped around me as I type). It’s that magical Lou & Grey material that’s cozier than anything else I own and it adds the perfect layer of warmth for these cold winter days. I’m wearing a small and would say it’s TTS.

These pants unfortunately weren’t in store, so I had to order them. They arrived yesterday and I’m loving them. They run slightly big (I’m usually a 2 in their slim trousers, but these straight leg pants are a 0). They aren’t lined, but since the fit is loose it’s not really an issue. They are ankle length which is perfect for pairing with heels and I could see any number of festive tops being paired with these. As of now, this is what I’ll likely be wearing to our Christmas Eve service.

I hope that helps you guys! LOFT is always one of my favorite places to shop because you can find a little bit of everything. And being able to get it for 50% off is just the cherry on top!
