Happy Monday friends! Welcome to the last week in January and it’s not even a full week. Bring on the month of LOVE.
I went to the mall last week and popped in Loft to try on a few things. They are really killing it with not only sales here of late, but lots of cute things to tempt you. If you see something you like throw it in your cart and use the code MYSTERY for 50% off.
I also want to tell you about these jeans I’m wearing. Honestly, I’m wearing them most days. I ordered them from Nordstrom Rack and they’re sold out but here’s a very similar pair by the same maker. They are BlankNYC and have the most wonderful stretch and don’t bag out. Talk about comfortable. The waistband reminds me of the Wit and Wisdom Absolution Stretch jeans waistband. Anyway, I love these and the last week my Rockstars are feeling a little neglected. Don’t worry, I’ll be back for them though.
Have you already got something cute in mind to wear on Valentine’s Day? I thought this sweater would be perfect. I know a lot of people don’t like stripes, but I love stripes and just look at the darling cuffs with button trim. I think my arms a little on the short side, so it doesn’t fit me quite as well as it would most of you girls.
I love a bright, sunny color and this one is definitely that. The perfect transition sweater with trendy bell sleeves and a boatneck. I find a boatneck to be much more flattering than a round or crew neck. The contrast rib trim on the cuffs, top and shoulders make give it more personality. It’s a boxier fit, but these days I don’t seem to mind that. Give me all the room to breath?
I guess you’ve probably figured out by now that I am a lover of cozy sweaters, heck, I’m a lover of all things cozy. I feel like everyone needs a good neutral sweater in their wardrobe and this one could be just that. A really soft knit, with a ballet/boatneck and side slits for easy hanging and movement and fun stitching on the shoulders.
Well I almost didn’t try this one on, and wouldn’t you know it was my favorite. I should have known it being Lou & Grey I’d fall hard. In case you haven’t noticed the blouson sleeves are trending and this sweater has them along with stripes, cute trim and a touch of cashmere in it to make it super soft.
I can’t find this one on the website, but I’m sure I will eventually. It would be really cute with a long sleeve tee under it. It was really soft. Edit: Found it!!! HERE
I’ve been loving all the capes/poncho’s I keep seeing on others so I decided to give one a try. I’m not sure, but I don’t think it’s the best look for me. Maybe I’m too short? Anyway, this is cute and and would be a great travel piece or grabbing for a wrap in the movies or restaurant.
The pictures don’t do this little top justice. It was so much cuter in person. The material is the perfect weight and the shirt tail hem would look so cute with white jeans.
Do you LOVE this sweater? I know, I know, I’m so cheesy. I of course had to laugh Friday when I read my blogging sisters blog and she was wearing this sweater. (which I love styled over a shirt) I don’t know why we don’t just order two of everything. Even though this says LOVE, you aren’t tied to just wearing it for Valentine’s Day, even though it’s perfect for that
Thought this skirt was so cute back in the fall when it came out and I still do. I grabbed it to pair with this sweater and it made for a cute little outfit. Add some tights and boots or flats and you’re good to go.
I love the idea of skirts, but they don’t work great on me due to being so short waisted. This skirt is darling though. It’s really hard to tell in the picture but the background is a really pretty gray and I would have loved to put an olive sweater with it, but they didn’t have my size. Coral would also be super cute with it.
Now for the most depressing news. I got an email Saturday that our Loft is closing. WHAT??? Say it isn’t so. The next closest one is about 30 minutes away. It’s doable, but definitely not as convenient.
I’m totally bummed, but I guess if that’s the worst thing to happen to me over the weekend, then I did alright. ?

I’ve also got some exciting news! I finally pulled the trigger and I’m getting a face lift for the blog and also migrating over from Blogger to Word Press. I hear WP allows for more options in design and overall use. I’m a little nervous about having to learn a new platform, but I up for the challenge.
Here’s to a great week friends!
