Anyone up for some Spring shopping? Quite frankly, I could use a bit of retail therapy right about now. Thankfully, LOFT reached out, asking if I’d take a look at their Spring line (yes, yes, a thousand times yes), so I grabbed my friend Linzi (because she makes basically everything better), and we got to “work”.
Based on our intense research, there are a few things you need to know: one, LOFT’s modern skinny jeans are really good (these and these), two, Linz and I will forever and ever love a LOFT tee, and three, don’t overlook their fun accessories. Outfit-making, for sure.
Of course, there’s cute LOFT tops and jackets, but that’s always given.
Coat – Petite Topstitched Peacoat (also available in regular here) – wearing a size Petite 0 – we’re obsessed with the contrast stitching. This coat is wool, but a lightweight one, so it doesn’t feel overly heavy for Spring.
Top – Ruffle Lace Shell (size S) – Isn’t this top cute? Linzi typically goes for more color, but she loved the little sleeve detail.
Jeans – Modern Cuffed Skinny Jeans – these might be the only skinny jeans I’ve ever seen Linz wear? She hacked hers off perfectly, too.
Shoes – Satin Knot Slip On Sneakers – Linzi’s style is way less tomboyish than mine, so she usually regards sneakers as a necessary evil. But these? She genuninely loved. Satin fabric, and the knot detail elevated them into something girly enough for even Linz. Also? They’re comfy to walk in.
Earrings – Crystal Disc Stud Earring Set – I’ve never seen Linzi without earrings, and this unassuming little set is pretty darn perfect. Oddly enough, I stole the girly pair and Linzi liked the two tomboyish pairs (we women are complicated creatures – don’t put us in a box).
Umbrella – Striped Umbrella – ugh, we love all LOFT umbrellas right now. I’m going to add a few more to cart on my next purchase.
Sunnies – Metallic Arm Round Sunglasses in ‘Pink Spark’
Outfit Details (Me)
Coat – Twill Trench Coat (Size 0P) – I’m going to exchange this one for a regular size. The petite belt hits a little too high on my waist.
Top – Vintage Soft Pocket Tee (xs) – One of my favorite tees. Love where the sleeves hit, and the lower scoop neckline.
Jeans – Modern Skinny Jeans (25P) – these were the happiest surprise. Even Mike noticed how good the bum was. They do stretch out a bit more than my usual AGs, but they’re a fraction of the cost. I’m now stocking up on a few pairs with fun details (see the shopping boutique below….)
Belt – Perforated Leather Belt – this was perfection. The slimmer size is going to be perfect even with shorts this summer (trust me – looks better than it sounds, haha). I want the braided one, too.
Shoes – Perforated Chelsea Boots – These are good!! The heel is nice and walkable – I wore them all day. They were a tiny bit stiff at first, but after walking in them for an hour or so they softened right up (I also wear them with thick Smartwool socks, so that helps, too.)
Earrings – Cluster Crystal Earring Set – Not normally an earrings girl, but Linzi bought the set for the two simple ones, so I stole this little bit of bling. Fun with a simple white tee.
Umbrella – Berry Umbrella – Fun umbrellas just make me happy. And LOFT has some good ones right now.
Sunnies – Metallic Round Arm Sunglasses in ‘Whisper White’
My LOFT Favorites
As I mentioned earlier, I’m pretty sold on LOFT’s jeans, tees, and accessories. Here are the pieces I’m seriously considering for Spring (as well as the pieces I’m wearing above).
