a lovely living


With school starting and fall just around the corner, I stopped into Loft to see what new arrivals were trickling in. Although there wasn’t as much filling the racks as I was hoping for just yet, I still found quite a few share-worthy pieces. When I posed the question on Instagram as to what everyone was looking for, the requests were predominantly for work, school, zoom calls, fall transitioning as well as wedding/shower options. Unfortunately dresses were hard to find outside of one that you can see below, but I’m linking a number of others that you can find online, both casual as well as wedding worthy.

shirt / pants

Oh my gosh guys, I didn’t even notice the dust on the mirror when I started snapping these pics!! You’re just going to have to take my word that these pants are fantastic. They are a crepe material with a tapered leg and a tie waist that adds so much to any top you’d pair them with. In addition to black, they also come in rust and an olive green. As I typically do in Loft pants, I sized down to an XS.

shirt / pants

If you’re looking for a top with a little flair, this puffed sleeved shirt is a perfect option. It also comes in white for a classic piece that would go with everything. It runs TTS.

top / pants

Here’s another great work top that would also transition to the weekend with a pair of jeans.

shirt / pants

I love the style of this ribbed top. This look is one I would wear with a pair of heels for a night out, but it could also be a great layering top for work under a blazer or cardigan.

sweater / pants

Sizes are running low on this sleeveless sweater, but honestly I think you can be flexible on sizing. I’m wearing a large which was all they had in store and I could have totally gotten away with it. It’s a perfect late summer/early fall top and being that it’s sleeveless it would be easy to throw a jacket on over top without feeling too bulky.

sweater / jeans

These jeans were so comfortable, even in a size too small, they still felt great with a nice amount of stretch. The problem is I didn’t get a picture of the tag and cannot figure out which pair I had on! I would assume that they are the crop flare since that’s the closest thing I can find online, but I feel slightly hesitant because crop jeans are never this long on me. If a longer flare comes online, I’ll be sure to update! **Update: They are LOFT’s slim flare jean, not yet online.

sweater blazer

Many of you know my love for sweater blazers! I love the plaid on this navy option. It’s perfect dressed casually or for work.

pj top / pj bottoms

I shared these pj’s when they first came out in my last Loft try-on and I can’t tell you how much I love them. I have a couple of tops and bottoms that I mix and match for bedtime. Now they not only have a shorts and biker shorts option for the bottoms, but if you prefer a jogger pant, they offer that too! Such a cozy and luxe feeling material. Trust me, you’ll love them!

top / bottoms

I thought this was a fun tee with the animal print and loose fit. Although it leans casual, I could also see it tucked into these pants that I shared above for a work-appropriate look.

tee / pants

I love this color of skinny jean for fall. The color ‘chai latte’ feels all to appropriate!


Another beautiful fall top that could go from work to weekend. The colors were beautiful!


This was one of the few dresses that I was able to find in-store and it was a good one. Pretty enough to dress up for a wedding, but also could be worn with cute booties as a teacher. I’d say you could size down unless you need extra room in the chest area, in which case I’d recommend sticking with your true size. I did track down a few more dress options online (see above) that are worth checking out.


This quarter zip style sweatshirt is my go-to. I love the stand up collar, and the stripes add the perfect detail to keep it from feeling too casual.

sweatshirt / leggings

Another great sweatshirt option with the quarter zip and a playful tie-dye print. Then there’s these leggings which I’m still blown away by. The fit is amazing and they are a smooth, soft, stretchy material comparable in my opinion to the Lulu aligns, but a fraction of the price. They also come in a bunch of color options which I just may grab more of! They run TTS as does the sweatshirt.
