I found myself with some extra free time (what even is that!?) yesterday, so I wandered into my local LOFT. I had wind of some new arrivals, so I had to see them for myself! I found a lot of great transitional pieces. Fall and winter tones, in spring materials. What is so great about that combo is that you can style them year round with different textural layers to create year-round looks. Here we go!
First up, I have an excellent Valentine’s Day option.
I am not one to really celebrate the day TOO much, but, this shirt features an excellent print that almost makes the hearts look like cheetah print. So, you can get away with wearing this gem beyond February 14th. I am wearing a size small. It was the smallest size my store had (it is a BIG seller), but I don’t mind the over-sized look. I plan to purchase this in an XS.
Another fun casual Valentine’s Day option is this LOVE sweatshirt. Cozy and fun, you could definitely style this beyond February 14th. Who doesn’t need a reminder of love, right?! I am wearing a size small- again, it was the smallest size my store had- and I think it fits okay, but would prefer XS.
Okay, about to have some fun with this one. I found this utility blouse in a fun, neutral stripe. I already had this cape, and this tunic sweater in my pile, and I am pretty sure the rest was fate. I love the mix of these neutral stripe tones with the mustard yellow sweater- again, pieces that can work together for cooler temps, and alone for warmer ones. The cape is such a fun addition to any look. You can simply style it over a tank for warmer weather (see Lauren’s pic), or over a long sleeve as I did here. All of these pieces are 50% off.
This yellow blouse has everything you could want in an all-seasons top. The wrap trend will never die- it flatters just about everyone. The yellow color might have you thinking fall, but the different floral print tones in the all-over print, will lend itself to be a year-round stunner. I am wearing XS here, but would likely prefer a petite size. Lauren is wearing a size small!
This mock-neck sweater with ruffle sleeves is a must-have for work. It is light-weight and soft! It features the perfect mix of marled stripe with charcoal. I am wearing a size XSP, as I didn’t want a super-fitted look with my usual XXS. This sweater is also 50% off!
Lauren and I both tried this Lou and Grey utility blouse (surprisingly soft!) on in XS. You could easily wear with as a tunic with leggings and a long open cardigan over top for styling!
