Recent buys: Summer time outfits with LOFT and J Crew5:00 AM
I'm not much of a shorts/tanks - summer wear kind of girl. I have a few favorite pieces that I tend to wear every summer and don't do much shopping. However, when I do, it's usually when all the summer stuff is on sale so wanted to share a few recent purhcases and picks that are all on sale.
LOFT is kind of funny whenever I stop by the store, they always are doing something different online. The day I stopped by they were doing 40% off everything in the store but they weren't doing it online. Either way though, most of the time you can still grab a pretty good discount at LOFT as long as you keep an eye out for it.
This top isn't super summery but I like that it's a dressy take on just a regular tee. Love the peplum detail and dresses up your regular jeans and a tee kind of outfit.
I think drop waist dresses like this one is flattering on every body type. Love the gingham print, so summery! Just an easy dress to wear for so many summer occasions. I've already worn it to the office, a bar-b-que and a trip to the zoo with my daughter. I just read the reviews about how bad it shrunk after wash for quite a few people so I need to make sure not to do the same! I may just end up handwashing it.
I didn't take pics but also tried on these tops which are just good summer staples. I'm all about the easy, breezy summer tops. Am totally obsessed with the lace top which I can wear now but will be perfect for fall too. The tweed shorts are just too cute and I actually already own scallop shorts but I like that these ones are a bit dressier than mine. And being that I love all things off the shoulder lately, this dress was calling my name.
Also a quick note as J Crew is having a great sale on sale. I snagged this striped tee and I love the linen tees as they look a bit nicer than regular cotton tees. I packed this in my suitcase and it actually didn't wrinkle much which is nice, since I've been living out of a suitcase lately I feel like all my clothes are super wrinkly these days!
The striped pom pom tee is too cute and you can't tell in the picture but this tee is a really pretty silver metallic in person. Also grabbed a few other tanks that I thought would be cute with jeans and shorts. How cute is that scalloped tank though? The little gold bag was a last minute buy but on sale and additional 40% off, I just had to have it. I've been loving bucket bags and just couldn't resist the gold and the tassels!
I had to mention one last thing as I saw these pink lace up flats and am DYING for them but I can't find them in my size anywhere. How cute are they! And they are on sale too!
