Hey guys! I realize that this is my second time taking you into the dressing room with me this week, but when I heard LOFT was having a 40% off sale, I couldn’t help but want to share everything pretty with you! I took a quick poll on Instagram yesterday before I went in to see if you’d be more interested in casual or work appropriate attire and it ended up being fairly split. The great thing about LOFT is that you know they have you covered from lounge to work and everything in between. The store is currently 40% so this is the perfect time to grab anything you’ve had your eye on!
Let’s dive into what I uncovered in store yesterday. The dresses and tops ran true to size (I’m typically a 0 or 2 in dresses and an XS or S in tops for reference) but follow along closely on pant sizing because I was in everything from 00 to 4!
Let’s start with the dresses and work our way casual. This dress was the absolute cutest in person, although hard to capture in a dressing room. It’s navy (not black), has a very flattering shape, ruffle detail at the hem and button pocket detail. I could see this being dressed up for a wedding with some heels and the right jewelry or with a cute cardigan dressed down a bit for work.
Here’s another adorable dress. The color is just beautiful and the ruffles add a sweet, feminine touch to this shift dress.
This dress was so sweet. I love the floral print and the smocked top. I think it pairs perfectly, although somewhat unexpectedly with this cotton moto jacket. A cute pair of booties wouldn’t hurt either!
One final shift dress that wouldn’t be complete with out a little ruffle on the sleeves ;)
I was a big fan of both of these pieces. The top is very pretty in person with a sweet bluebird print and ruffled collar. This could definitely work dressed down with denim as well. And if you’re on the hunt (or not!) for a pair of black pants, you’ve got to give these a try. The tie detail and crepe material made me wish I had to dress up on a more regular basis! These did run large for me though, so I’d size down.
This cute t-shirt comes in a few other solid colors, but I couldn’t pass up the polka-dot print. I also loved these pants which are running low on sizes (online at least) but worth grabbing if you can. I was in a size 2 here, but I would have taken a 0 if they had them in stock.
These jeans fit like a glove, but in my typical size 2 they were too tight for my comfort (as in I’d be scared to bend over!). I’d size up one size in these, but otherwise they are great jeans with a nice dark wash for fall.
I couldn’t wait to try on this double-breasted jacket. It’s adorable and much more unexpected than a typical blazer. Still professional but a bit more on trend right now. As I mentioned, I’m typically a 0-2 in tops, this was a 0 and it was still pretty roomy in the chest/shoulders, so you could likely size down.
On to more casual pieces. It never fails that I fall in love with a pair of Lou & Grey pants or sweats. These charcoal pants were no exception (they come in three other colors too). And the boyfriend cardi was one of the first things I picked up when I walked into the store. The grey/green is so pretty and I’m much more on board with the laid-back fit of a boyfriend cardigan. It also comes in a bunch of other colors.
Here’s a really great Lou & Grey light-weight sweater. Soft and cozy for lounging, but it could even be dressed up for work if needed.
This dolman tee comes in a few colors and is crazy soft. I went with a small here to get a bit of a looser fit, but overall it ran true to size. And how cute are these floral jeans? The print is painted on and adds such a fun touch without being too overpowering. I was in my typical size 2/26 here.
If you’re looking for the absolute softest pair of lounge pants ever, look no further! You’ll have to experience these for yourself because it doesn’t get any better than this ;) Throw on a denim jacket and some cute sneaks and this is a perfect fall, errand running outfit for me!
