I Daydream of LOFT

That’s a nod to “I Dream of Jeannie” if you didn’t catch that! Today I opened my email to find one of the many LOFT emails I receive. This one I opened rather than sending it straight to the trash. (I’m usually aware of their sales before they ever send an email! Call me a stalker…!) But this one featured some blogger stars styling LOFT items for work, which totally appeals to me. And, yes, the inspiration came!

I absolutely loved these outfits in particular:

blue

I just love the soft blue color of these pieces and how they are paired with warm brown, I would have never done that! When I see a cool blue my instinct is to pair it with black, making the look even more cold. I also have never considered a scarf wrap like this! Love it! (Not a fan of bootcut/flare with ankle boots…?)

This one caught my attention because there are basically three things going on to me and one of them may be VERY useful! That would be the ankle boots with ankle pants! I had been curious about wearing these two things together, but thought it may be a strange look, but it pulls off well! She is also wearing a tunic/dress with slacks. How neat! And the vest is another thing slightly out of my comfort zone, but I’m trying to imagine myself possibly giving them a try. This might allow me to feel cozy without restricting my movement.

And this is just amazing. I love the bo-ho look, always have. I’m a hippie at heart. But because I have a motorcycle, work at a Harley shop, and basically bleed Harley I really love how these two contrasting looks compliment each other! Very fun flirty feminine with a modern clean edge.

I can’t decide which element I want to try first! I can easily go slip on some ankle boots to see if I like how it looks on me. But I’m definitely dreaming of purchasing some more pieces from LOFT soon! They are having a great sale right now!

Here’s a few of the things I’d love to get:

brown

I can see myself pairing this with the dandelion sleeveless top from earlier this year. It is ivory with a sweet orange and light blue floral print. The challenge will be which color of slacks will work best!

This top gives me spring and art teacher vibes! I would love to pair it with my red slacks and maybe even my turquoise cardigan! Gotta love some loud contrast!

hippie

This is the shirt version of the “hippie dress”. I really don’t know which one I would prefer! So I will probably end up with neither! hahaha In all honesty I’m really not much of a dress wearer. I really love wearing slacks and jeans.

holiday

This looks like a perfect holiday top! I just love that shade of green. I have one in a similar silhouette, but in maroon and I just love the way it feels on.

white

Love how fresh this top is. It looks to be the same cut as the shirt just above. It has a casual vibe, but is still dressy. Check out those “poet’ sleeves! How would I get creative with this top? maybe tucking it into some dress pants, or not, and wearing a necklace that had  just a few colored gems/beads in it? hmmmm.

Well, perhaps it is just about time for me to do a round up of my “newer” pieces and see where I’m at! Fall has been fairly warm, so I don’t feel like I’ve been getting to really wear the pieces I’d like to style or the outfits I love just yet! I have my eyes set on this FANTASTIC pair of pumpkin spice pants at Express that might just make all of my fall dreams come true. 😉

It has still been very busy when I have free time at home and I am soaking up lots of friend time when I get the chance. Last night my best friend and I got together for wine, classical music, wall decor hanging, and AHS! It was a fun night. We even got a short dog-walk in and some yummy snacks! So that’s my life right now! Hurry up and do homework, hurry up and spend time with friends, hurry up and watch your favorite shows or read your book… I love it! I just can’t wait for homework to be such a huge part of things! But this is only the beginning of the tough stuff!

Any way, have a lovely Fall weekend! I will hopefully be spending time with Michael riding ATVs and getting some outdoor Autumn decor going, which gets me one step closer to a blog post!

How about you all? Any great outfit/fashion finds? Do you have some current #loftlove? Have any fall plans?

Love Y’all!
