LOFT Sale Alert

LOFT is one of my favorite places to pick up new items for my work wardrobe. This weekend they are having a huge sale – 40% off your entire purchase with code NEWNOW. These sales make building a work wardrobe reasonably affordable! I know how challenging it can be to find cute work clothes that can also be repurposed for the weekend so that’s why I started sharing my work outfits of the day! I share more details and other tips on how to restyle on Instagram too every morning!

On sizing, I generally find that LOFT tops run a little big so 80% of the time I size down especially if it’s a t-shirt. Bottoms and dresses usually run true to size for me!

Here are a few items that I’m currently loving! I update this page regularly so always check back if you need new ideas!

I’ve always loved fall florals. There’s something about the moodiness of it that makes it not overly feminine but still gives your outfit something more unique and intricate. This floral fit and flare dress is by one of my favorite brands, Eliza J, who you’ve seen me wear a lot of in these OOTDs. When something is working for you, don’t break it! The fit is perfect (although almost everything they make is). You can also style it as a skirt over a thicker crew knit sweater.

If these black suede bow pumps are left in your size, I’d recommend snagging them! They are so comfortable and I love black suede because it tends to last longer than regular leather. If they’re sold out in your size, try these classic black pumps under $100!

OOTD 9.20.18: White Blazer and Striped Tee

If you’re looking for a white blazer, this is a really great, affordable option! It comes in several different colors depending on what you’re looking for! It’s not the first blazer I’d recommend because my priority goes to this one that you could wear to an interview. However, if you’re on a budget, you could totally make it work! Here are the other colors of this blazer.

I also shared this $8 striped tee over the weekend and it’s amazing. Truly one of the best basics I’ve found and it’s under $10! You cannot beat that price!! And the fit. I’ve been wearing a bit more American Eagle lately because the prices are so affordable. If you missed some of my favorites, make sure to check out this post!

I love this puffed sleeve sweater! The fit is so cute – not too tight and not too baggy. It’s the perfect sweater for the office and it’s a timeless piece that you can wear now and wear in 10 years. For another styling idea, you can wear a white button down underneath it. Just make sure to scrunch up the sleeves so that you can cuff it above your elbows!

These high waist skinnies are on sale!! They’re 40% off! They are so flattering that I added 2 more pairs to my wardrobe this year because I end up wearing them 99% of the time I want to wear denim. They are the perfect length that takes all the guess work out of picking out a pair of jeans to go with various kinds of shoes. Mules, booties, and over the knee boots all pair really well with them.

If you’re looking for a place to refresh your pumps and you don’t want something basic, my favorite spot to browse for inspiration is Shopbop. I typically like heels that are 2-3″ in height for the office and they have such a good selection of cute pumps.
