Today’s post should come as no surprise because you know I was in this store trying on clothes yesterday…. so today I have a try-on session in Loft for you. 🙂
If you’re new here, welcome. A dressing room diary is when I go into a store and try on new merchandise so you can see how it looks on someone over 25. For reference, I am 5’4″ and weigh 136 lbs. I have an inverted triangle body shape with wide shoulders and narrow, straight hips. My torso and arms are long so I wear one size larger on top than the bottom.
Try-On Session In Loft
I couldn’t find a link for this pretty kimono until Kelly found it for me. Thanks, Kelly! The tee is mine from here, and these jeans are the high-rise straight crop in natural white which is an off-white. They come in regular and curvy, 24-33. I’m wearing the straight in 28 so they run TTS. The natural white is a really nice alternative to glaring white and goes with everything white jeans go with.
MORE FUN DUSTERS FROM LOFT
Loft makes this tank in 5 colors, XS-XL. I’m wearing the Coral mist in a medium that is too large because the armholes are too deep for me so I would go down to a small. It’s a great, affordable layering piece in 100% cotton. The tiered skirt has a really pretty metallic thread running through it. Since the fabric is soft, the tiers blend into each other and don’t stick out the way stiff cotton does. It comes in regular, petite, and tall, sizes XS-XL. I’m wearing a regular small and would probably prefer the petite.
Here I am in shorts again. These linen/viscose blend shorts come in 3 colors, sizes 00-14. I’m wearing a 6 in the Radiant Copper. I added this soft v-neck cardigan in Sundried Vine. It’s a soft acrylic blend that comes in regular and petite in 5 colors sized XXS-XS. I’m in the regular M. You should know that at Loft, the petite versions are usually smaller than the regular, so I suggest you size up.
I could find this duster and it’s really fun. Loft makes several lightweight dusters this season that are perfect for popping over anything from shorts, pants, a dress, or a bathing suit. It’s a filmy modal fabric in XS/S or M/XL. I’m wearing the smaller one.
These jeans have a nice high rise and are slightly cropped. Less so on me, because I’m wearing the regular. They also come in petite and plus, straight and curvy, sizes 24-34. I’m wearing the 27 and they came home with me. I love the wash and the kick bottom is new for me which makes them feel modern. The regular has a 26 1/2″ inseam, the petite is a 24″ inseam and the plus has a 26″ inseam.
Here’s that cardigan again, this time buttoned closed which I love to do with cardigans. These straight-leg jeans are a very soft Celestial Jade color (also in blush). They’re available in regular, curvy, and petite sizes 24-24. These are a regular 27, but I prefer the 28 on me so they run TTS.
MORE FUN THINGS FROM LOFT
Ok, ok so you’ve already seen me in this dress, but I couldn’t resist trying it on again because it coordinates so nicely with this cardigan. It’s just the prettiest combination of colors it makes me wish I had a garden party or casual wedding to go to.
The same kick crops as above, this time with a cute cotton tee with a beach motif. It’s 100% cotton in regular and petite, sizes XXS-XL. I’m wearing the regular medium and like the length so I think it runs a bit small. I topped with the same ribbed v-neck cardi, this time in the Radiant Copper color.
I am shocked to find myself liking these kick crops because they’ve never been in my style wheelhouse. Is it boredom and the desire to experiment? Possibly. It’s also a backlash to wearing skinny jeans which I’m finding more uncomfortable every time I put them on. I’m sure my taste will swing back around but for now, I’m just going to go with it.
Thanks for reading ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident and happy.
