Loft Style: Dress-Up

Hello all! It’s September! One of my favorite months of the year. I love the weather, football season, and the fact that it’s our anniversary month to name a few reasons. We had a wonderful summer and although I do miss having the kids home and enjoying our laid back days, it’s refreshing to get back into a routine and have more time to commit to work and upcoming projects. With Labor Day weekend before us, I’m guessing some of you will take advantage of the sales going on, Loft being one of them. I stopped in the other day and was drawn to so many of their dresses, which isn’t always the case. I wanted to share them with you as they’d make great options for anything from work, church, weddings, date nights to everyday paired with sneakers. Scroll on to see what I loved…

To be honest, the colors in this dress feel more spring/summer to me, but we all know that the warmth of summer carries well into September and it’s such a beautiful dress! I think grey heels or booties would help it to lend more towards fall but you could also through on a cardigan over top like this…

This sweater also comes in a few other colors. It has a great fit and is incredibly soft and comfortable. I’m wearing a 2 in the dress (it fits well, maybe ever so slightly large) and a small in the sweater, and I’d say they run pretty TTS

This is another similar dress in a different print and material. It comes off as more casual and could pair well with booties and a denim jacket but you could also do loafers and a blazer for work. I sized down to compare the 0 in this dress and it fit but I think I’d prefer the 2 (which is more TTS for me).

I probably have 5 similar jackets in my closet which goes to say this is a great staple to have on hand if you don’t already. It’s a great length to pair over dresses (in addition to wearing it with denim/pants) as the cut is more flattering. It runs TTS, I’m in the small.

This adorable dress is so preppy-chic, I adore it! The ruffle detail and tie waist pair perfectly on this shirt-dress. I love it with my Converse, but can also see it with heels/wedges as the weather allows and then with a denim jacket and booties when it starts to cool off. I’d say it runs slightly large, I’m wearing the XS here.

The print and colors on this drop-waist dress are spot on for fall while at the same time they don’t feel like your typical fall colors. The deep teal is striking and this dress style is another one that could easily be dressed up for down based on your destination. It runs slightly large as well, I’m in the XS and still had enough length to feel comfortable.

This dress is such a classic-chic with strong Jackie O vibes. Black and white is not really my style, but gosh it’s adorable. It’s rather fitted and I’d say it runs TTS, I’m in the 2.

Obviously not a dress, but I had to include this gorgeous skirt. The print is screaming fall in the most beautiful way, pulling together so many beautiful colors. Here are a few ways you could wear it; with a cardigan, a light-weight pullover, or going bold with a matching printed top. The skirt does run small, so I’d size down. All of the tops are pretty TTS (the pink runs a bit small in the sleeve), I’m in a small in all three.
