The local Loft store is great about hosting League shopping events. I believe this is at least the third they’ve done for us. Now… full disclosure, one of our VPs is a shared asset, but I think our local store is just wonderful like that, and perhaps the whole brand is so supportive of other women and non-profits?
More true confessions… Loft is hit and miss for me. I do love their basic tee better than any other basic tee in the whole wide world, and you can almost always catch them on super-sale. I’m not sure I’ve ever paid more than $8 for the tees, and they hold up well. They are cut slim and they are thinner than a traditional tee, but … that suits me well.
However, last night was bountiful! I left behind peplums and a really cute woven dress (not shown on the website), but I couldn’t resist a few things, starting with this french terry maxi. I am 5’3″ and it hits me at the ankle bone, if that helps? It’s the most comfortable thing… No wonder it’s listed as part of their lounge wear collection!
I had a very loose notion when I went shopping that I wanted a mint green bottom of some sort. The Loft actually has quite a few offerings in what they call spring jade, and I grabbed a pair of crops. I look forward to it warming up again so I can wear them!
And now, I have a conundrum. I love lace, and was drawn to the cotton tiered lace skirt. It definitely will be a new favorite! I already have a dress for the May Dinner, but gee I love this skirt. I see it paired with a chambray shirt or a dark tee for casual wear, but add a solid colored blouse… yes? (And no, I don’t own a solid colored blouse that would work, so feel free to make suggestions!)
I did go with the not-petite length. I find a lot of Loft skirts/dresses indecently short in the petite length.
Have you found any great warmer weather items?
