Dressing Room Diaries: Loft Friends & Family Sale!

Hello, hello and happiest Wednesday friends! Why am I so excited (besides the fact that it’s hump day)?! Well today Loft has 40% off EVERYTHING as part of their “Loft friends & family” sale- and they have been running less sales lately so that makes this one all the more exciting!! To claim your discount enter code “FRIENDS” at checkout & voila! 40% off your order will be yours!

I recently ran into the mall to make a return and of course got suckered in to trying on a bunch of cute new arrivals- but I was pretty responsible for #NoShopApril and only went slightly over my return credit ๐Ÿ˜‰ Don’t think the balance of these cute pieces isn’t sitting in my cart waiting for the end of the month! ha.

Before we dive in, here are the stats you need to know: I’m a small/4 on top and a medium/6 on the bottom. I have a super small top (Pres of the IBTC) and curves on the bottom- LOL. Also, I totally was not planning on doing a dressing room diary & was wearing a black bra… so oops! Now that that’s out of the way- let’s dive in, shall we?!

I love simple outfits like this one- they are perfect for the weekends. But the ruffle on the tee keeps it interesting and the shorts have a nice amount of stretch. Wearing my normal size S in the tee and sized up to an 8 in the shorts for more room in the thighs.

I cannot say enough good things about this skirt! It’s kind of a terrycloth material (??) and super soft and stretchy. Love that you can easily dress it up for the office with a white Oxford but also pair it with sneakers and a tee for the weekend.

These ruffle shorts are the absolute cutest everrrrr but unfortunately my big booty wasn’t having it! If you have a few less curves than I do then I totally recommend these. Note: these have a side zip so they fit a little differently than a “traditional” short.

I love fun colored pants- fun fact ๐Ÿ™‚ They are the perfect piece to rotate in to my work week wardrobe and add some spice to my look. I was a total sucker for this pretty pink color the minute I saw it! I also love that these chinos have more of a “boyfriend” fit which made them way more comfortable (in my opinion).

I’ve been loving the cute “graphic” tees that Loft has been releasing this season- and this “Ciao” tee is going to be such a fun layering piece. I love that the graphics are subtle, since they are just in the “pocket” area it makes it a little more “grown up” but still adds some whimsy to your look. I’m also obsessed with these gold shimmer bow shorts!! Loft always has the best-fitting shorts and these can be dressed up for a girl’s night out or made casual more easily! Love them & wearing size 6.

The Loft Beach line has so many fun pieces, but I do find that they run 1-2 sizes bigger than their regular line. Case in point, this romper! I’m wearing a small but actually needed an xs (and normally I’m a medium in their rompers). Love the bright print and breezy shape!

Blue & white stripes? You know I am ALL IN! This is a winner, winner, chicken dinner!

Blue and white multi-striped dress (wearing size small)

I bought the top version of this dress and love it (styled shoot coming soon!) so I was excited to try on the dress version in store. Unfortunately they only had a size medium- and that was too big! Definitely runs tts or even one size big, but it’s so pretty y’all! Love the crisp colors for spring!

    Okay, I absolutely love everything! How did you get out of there without shopping????? You have got some self control! I have their distressed shorts from last year and I lived in them all Summer long. I need to grab the white ones before they disappear.

    One of my favorite things you post! I love dressing room diaries.
    Loft is so great, and I really love these pieces. I wish their sizing was a little more…accurate I guess? It doesn’t seem to be uniform, and I think they run big! Makes it hard to shop online.

      They definitely run on the big side- but I find that since they seem to be consistent in that respect it makes it not too hard to shop online. And they are great about returns!

    Ok, I need to go get those ruffle trip shorts ASAP! LOFT has the cutest clothes. It was 40 degrees in DC today so I really need the spring weather to hurry up and find us!
