Loft lately

Loft by Ann Taylor is a go-to for me anytime I am looking for a specific item. Not only are their clothes current, yet classic, they are reasonable, even without the 30-40% off sales they run on a regular basis. In fact, they are currently running a 40% off storewide sale so I stopped by the other day to check it out in person.  First up are these precious blue stripe shorts. Trust me, you can’t fully appreciate how cute they are unless you see them in person. They have side ties and an elastic waist in the back which makes them uber-comfy. And I love this flutter sleeve top with tassel ties paired with it…..perfect for a summer day but how cute would this be for Memorial Day or the 4th of July? I am wearing an XS in the top and a 00 in the shorts (only because they have an elastic waistband in the back and they didn’t have my normal size of 0-2).

Next up was a gingham pair of shorts that I paired with a mustard-colored top with shirred peplum bottom.  I love the bold color with the classic gingham pattern, don’t you? I am wearing a small in the top, but I would have preferred an XS, and a size 2 in the shorts, but I think a 0 would have been a better fit.

I also picked out this amazing dress for an upcoming wedding we have on the calendar this summer. I adore the one-shoulder feature, the eyelet material, and the blush color! Planning to pair it with some nude ankle strap sandals and fun earrings for a look that will be easy and fresh.  Unfortunately, it’s not available online, but there were several at the one I went to in Germantown, so check out the Loft near you! I am wearing a 0 Petite in this little number.


And lastly, I keep seeing this top on other Instagram posts and drooling over the bold plaid pattern and dainty tie strap details, so when I saw it on the rack, I knew I had to try it on.  It was super cute on, I’ll admit, but every time I raised my arms, the whole thing came off my shoulders, which is a deal-breaker for me. Sadly, it didn’t make the cut, but I did go home with some other great items for a great price. Check out your local Loft store or to see what’s available in your size before the sale ends!
