I know that us Midwestern folk say this at some point every single winter, but we quite literally are living in a frozen tundra. Pretty sure I saw an article that we’re experiencing temperatures colder than Antarctica. Plus the foot and then some of snow that was dumped on us earlier in the week. It’s a hell of a time to be alive, I tell you!
Anyway, that was a roundabout way of me trying to tell you that I’ve had some extra time on my hands. Aka I haven’t been able to leave the house much, so what’s left to do after work and house chores are finished? Online shop, of course! I had a Loft gift card burning a hole in my purse from Christmas, so I took advantage of one of their recent half-off online sales and free shipping days. I always love and appreciate some old-fashioned, no fuss mirror selfie try-on sessions so that’s exactly what I’m bringing you today.
For reference – I’m 5’7″ and 143 pounds. I typically wear a small or medium in tops from Loft, and nobody is as surprised as me that everything I ordered worked out! For me, Loft can be very hit or miss.
Embroidered Floral Eyelet Sweatshirt – size M
I made a pact with myself at the beginning of the year to introduce more color into my closet. This muted coral exactly fits the bill! This was the top that I was most excited for, and it doesn’t disappoint. The comfy, lightweight sweatshirt material makes it perfect to wear now and into spring/early summer. I might’ve been able to size down to a small, but I’ll probably stick with the medium for length. I don’t mind a little extra room elsewhere.
Striped Button Cuff Long Sleeve Tee – size M – Tapioca Beige
A new striped tee was long overdue in my drawer, so bonus that this one has the extra button detail on the sleeves. Perfect to wear casually (duh) or layered for something more polished. The material is a little on the thinner side, so take care of how you wash it to avoid any holes/extend the life-of-wear.
Dotted Vintage Soft Shirttail Tee – size M
Shirttail tees are not typically my favorite, but this one works. I think because it’s on the longer side, and I LOVE the elbow-length sleeves. I’m much more confident and comfortable in a longer sleeve, and they’re easier to layer under a cardigan or coat without rolling up. This color combination would be cute for a casual Valentine’s Day date.
Terry Open Hoodie – size S – Silver Dust Melange
*cue the hallelujah chorus* This was the other item that I was most excited for, and it is so perfect. Perfect fit, perfectly oversized, perfectly casual, but perfectly capable of completing an outfit for a more put-together look. And, it’s so soft and warm. Again, PERFECT. This is going to get so much wear. I already have my eye on the olive green.
My sad attempt to show the side/back … you get the picture
A majority of my shopping is online these days – our closest mall is 45 minutes in either direction – so I’m going to make an effort to make these at-home dressing room diary posts a new thing! Stay tuned for the next one, which I’m sure is inevitably bound to be Target. 😉
Everyone seems to shop at and love Loft – what new finds have you come across recently?
