Summer Style Staple: LOFT Sundress

LOFT is currently having a huge sale on their dresses, now is the time to scoop them up! I promise you you’ll wear them for years. The structure and silhouettes are perfect for work and play, well made and come in a variety of colors.

I’m 5’2 so I wear petite in dresses and skirts, they are the perfect length fall right at or right above my knee in most cases unless the cut is designed to be shorter.

This dress is light and breezy in a pretty Coral color. The V in the front and back were a little too low for the office, to remedy that I threw on a floral scarf and white cardi to keep it conservative.

What I Wore: White, Teal and Cobalt

It’s Wednesday already, where does the time go? Sometimes I feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day and others I watch the clock and it crawls- Slowly. I’m having a fast week and I like it!

Hope everyone’s holiday was fabulous, lots of family/friends, food, fun and cocktails. πŸ˜‰ This was my last free weekend before school starts again.. Enter Stress! Any Philosophy buffs out there?

The weather has been sweltering here and I was the brainiac that decided to wear jeans one day, white jeans. Light colors and you’ll be cooler? No, not true when it’s 100 degrees and humid, and whose idea was it to do a photo op in the black asphalt covered parking lot? That’s right, this girl, but duty calls!

There appears to be a cool breeze, this is a farce. Imagine getting into a black car with black interior that has been sitting in the sun for 8 hours with the windows up and then turning the heat on full blast… How’s that for dramatic!

I love the teal and cobalt color combo with the white jeans. I wore this to work on Friday with a white blazer (Not Shown- see weather description above) last worn here the straps on this top weren’t appropriate for the office so I covered up while inside. I also wore the flat sandals all day and changed into the heels for after work festivities.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

What I Wore: LBD

I love Loft! I had a few gift cards that I had gotten for my birthday earlier this month. I went on a shopping spree a week before vacation because of course when on vacation you need a new wardrobe… (All of the strangers will know the difference between this year and last years shorts and sundresses).

Ah yes the sick mind of a shopping addict πŸ˜‰ Loft has great summer dresses, well made with classic silhouettes. I have and still wear dresses that I purchased a few years ago. Timeless pieces that wear well.

I purchased this black cotton dress recently and love it. It’s light weight and very flattering. I also bought the beaded stretch belt to wear with several other dresses I have in my closet. If you haven’t been to Loft lately visit soon! I’m very pleased with their summer selection.

Here is the LBD I wore last week:

Floral Jumper: Summer Trend

I avoided the jumper trend for a few seasons and finally gave in. I’m wondering why I didn’t jump on board sooner, I’m in Love!

It’s a Dress!!!! It’s Shorts!!!! No! It’s a Jumper!! Great alternative to wearing a dress or a short set. Super comfortable and there are so many options out there.

Are there any Jumpers in your closet?
