Loft Try-On

I ventured into Loft yesterday to check out their new arrivals. I wasn’t sure what to expect because I had browsed online but wasn’t struck by a whole lot. That all changed when I walked in the door and realized I didn’t give myself nearly enough time to try everything I wanted to! Online pictures often don’t do clothing justice in my opinion, and I love getting a chance to get my hands on things and style them in a way that works for me. I do realize that you are also seeing these pieces ‘online’, but my hope is that I can give you an even better idea of what they look like and how they wear for us everyday gals!

With Valentine’s Day heading our way, I obviously took all the hearts in to try on, but gather some other tops/sweaters that stood out to me as well. I’ll have to head back for a more in depth try on at some point, but hopefully this is helpful for now! I took a pack of barretts in with me as well (that I purchased) because I’m realizing that my hair is actually long enough to start playing around with some accessories!

I’m always between XS/S tops at Loft, so I’ll note which size I’m in and what size worked best for me as a reference for you. Most importantly, most everything is up to 60% off, so don’t wait for your size to sell out!

top / bottoms

LOVE this matching set which is Lou & Grey (ie super soft). I’m wearing an XS in both pieces.

sweater / jeans

I think the colors in this sweater are so beautiful. It’s light-weight, so will also be great for Spring. I’m wearing the S here.

sweater / pants

I love the look of sailor pants. These ran large and I would have needed one size down, but otherwise they are a fun alternative to denim.

sweater / jeans

This is a great, classic sweater that would work most of the year (ok, maybe not a turtleneck in the summer, but…). I’m in a S here and the sleeves ran too short for my arms, but most of you won’t have that issue! These jeans weren’t a great fit on me, but as reference, this was the pair I tried.

We can always count on Lou & Grey for cute sweaters! Love the playfulness of this one, yet in colors that work on everyone. I’m in the XS here but would have gone with a S.

Another cheerful sweater by Lou & Grey. As with the previous sweater, I would have gone with a S in this one as well.

sweatshirt / jeans (similar)

This light-weight sweatshirt had me at ruffles. It also comes in grey…

…which is what I brought home in a size S.

I would have loved for this tunic to work, but the wide arms and loose fit left me feeling like I was wearing a potato sack. Wasn’t a winner for me.

On the other hand, I loved this tunic sweater. The fitted arms and ribbed detail was much more flattering. I may head back for one of these but I couldn’t decide which color I liked best!

tee / jeans (similar)

I love cute, graphic tees and grabbed this one in this and this color in a size S. Great for lounging or layering.

This is a really great cardigan. They didn’t have a S in either color I wanted to try, so I took a M back with me and loved the oversized fit of the pink.

I also took it back in an XS in navy and loved that I could wear it without layering underneath. So the gist of this one is that you have flexibility on sizing and styling!
