31 Days Of Winter Fashion-Day 21

It’s Day 21 of my 31 Days of Winter Fashion and today I’m styling a Lou & Grey dress from the LOFT.

Sometime last year, LOFT introduced the Lou & Grey line. It’s casual instead of dressed-up, it’s “free spirited” instead of office-appropriate, it’s all soft neutrals instead of blacks, navys and prints.

Here’s the description they gave about someone who wears Lou & Grey. “A free spirit who floats in and out of every situation with ease. Someone who’s aware of her surroundings yet still makes time for daydreaming. When she loves something, she holds onto it forever. She likes to look, listen, touch, feel…discover. If she stumbles, a smile is never far behind. She’s a beautiful mix of contradictions.”

Hmmm, I do have a tendency to be a free spirit and I’ve definitely been known to stumble. You can ask my husband, but I stumble and even fall regularly. I think it’s because I’m usually in a hurry and I’m not paying attention to where I’m going. 🙂

Anyway, I like the look of this line mainly because it’s comfortable. I styled the dress I’m wearing with booties and tights. I added the next two pictures to show you how they wear dresses with booties and they don’t have to match the dress. (You probably already know that.)

This is the dress I bought and styled. I’m not quite as cool as the girl in this picture but I love the dress.

It’s soft and comfortable, and I could wear it all day. It’s also warm and perfect for winter weather.

I’m wearing grey tights and tan booties. I added my blingy necklace. The necklace has a hint of gray and tan in it so it goes with both.

Beauty For the Heart~~May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight. Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

What is pleasing to God? He delights in our acts of kindness, forgiveness and refraining from venomous words.

The more we value God’s grace, the more we’ll desire for every part of us, especially our words and our hearts, to be in alignment with Him.

Have a blessed day!

  1. Wasn’t a fan of the model looks, but scrolling down to you was a very nice surprise…you styled it beautifully, maybe a grey bootie for my taste. Comfy and causal enough to teach 2nd/3rd grade Sunday School kiddos and then polished enough to walk into church service afterwards. I like alot!

  2. I have been struggling with something for awhile now and I cannot tell you how much your blog encourages me every day. Thank you
    PS Like the fashion too

  3. Have tried Lou and Grey and love it. While it’s sometime excluded in sales, not always, so wait for the sale girls!

  4. So darling on you! I am much older and shorter and big breasted, so this dress would make me look like a tree stump!!

  5. This is one of my favorite outfits on you – I need to try wearing my ankle boots with a dress like this. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Cyndi, you’re killin’ me! And my bank account 🙂 LOL I absolutely LOVE this dress and look! I am really trying to be “good” the next few months and not make any purchases until I mix and match what is already in my closet! I just bought the tall cognac boots you wear a lot from Rack Room (LOVE!), signed up for Stitch Fix (got my first box last week and bought a great pair of jeans from it — way more than what I have ever spent on jeans but the fit was like they were made for me!) and also bought the Premier Kit from YL — Girl, what are you doing to me!?!?!! hahaha I just may have to block you for a while (kiddin’) 🙂

    1. Diane, I know I bought two fur vest. A long gold necklace and a red vest. I also got the blue and white top from the gap. I have got to stop the UPS man has been coming everyday. Lol

  7. I agree Cindi with the other gals…this is way cuter on you than the model! It is such an adorable outfit, I hope it goes on sale soon!

  8. I really love this outfit on you, especially with the booties! I am trying to remind myself to wear booties with my Sunday dresses, but I have a tendency to always gravitate towards my heels. I love that this is a great “cold weather” dress! Thanks for the fashion inspiration AND the spiritual encouragement!

  9. Love the look Cindi…..I am 50ish and I think I could pull this off! I am like some of the women that have commented, I tend to gravitate to my heels when wearing a dress, but change is good. Booties with tights and a dress….so cute!!

  10. absolutely love this outfit! What size did you buy in the dress? I’m usually petite but I’m nervous how short it is on model. It looks perfect on you.

  11. I LOVE this dress on you! (It definitely looks better on you than the model.) My taste is very much like yours… thanks for the inspiration…and your uplifting scripture quotes!

  12. Cyndi, I think you are everything that is cool about a graceful, Christian lady. These colors are so pretty with your complexion . You wear this very well.

  13. The other day you mentioned that dome ladies wished you would feature work clothes a little bit more on your webdite…THIS I’d wear to work!!!

    1. It’s definitely an outfit to wear to work or going out! Love it on you. I agree with the others, you rocked it better than the model. You look stunning!

      I would have never thought to pair it with tan booties. Love the look! And, I love shopping at the Loft. Thanks so much for the inspiration.


  14. You look WAY better than the girl in ad. Im chuckling about their description of the person who wears this brand…who writes these things?

    Wonder about a gray bootie or even black? I usually go to black vs tan, with gray.

  15. Hey Cyndi, I love the outfit. I like tan with it not so matching as grey would be. I am trying to get away from that matching. You know you said you fall a lot so do I thanks for saying that I was feeling kinda old and you helped me feel better. I think I am in a hurry too!! You are so sweet. Thanks for all the ideas. God bless you!

  16. Hey Cyndi, Just got a chance to look at my email for today, I love, love, love this outfit, it looks so cute on you, I think it looks better on you than the model 🙂 by the way I pulled together the outfit you showed us a couple of weeks ago, the camel color cape, animal print scarf, winter white pants and boots, I’m wearing it Friday night, going to dinner with friends for my birthday 🙂 thanks again for your inspiration

  17. Cyndi, You look adorable in this outfit!! Love the grays on you, although I am not a big fan of them for me. You always look very stunning!!! 🙂

  18. Cyndi Love this look for you. Very stylish. Does the dress run try to size? I’m 5`4″ and 146 lbs. Thanks!! Marsha

  19. Cyndi, This outfit looks great on you! It looks stylish yet comfortable. I have these booties in tan and wine color. I will try them with a similiar outfit instead of long boots. Also wanted to say that I purchased the Warm It Up lip color and love it. I was ready for a new color and it is perfect. Thank you for the inspiration. Love your style and I look forward to seeing your daily blog.

  20. What a cute look for you! I’m a frequent flyer at LOFT, but just started buying Lou & Grey in the past year. Their pieces are more expensive, but seem to hold up well. Sometimes I think they are worth the splurge, but as another reader said, “wait for the sale!” If you keep up with them on-line, there is something on sale every day, and I never pay full price for items I want.

  21. You look so cute!! I love the leggings with the sweater dress. Love to see what you’re wearing so we can get fresh ideas. Us ladies have to look good and when you look good you feel good.

  22. I just bought this dress the other day! (it was on sale on Saturday.) I was going to wear it to church on Sunday but thought my grey tights were maybe too dark -but I see you are wearing similar to mine and it looks good.
    I have enjoyed your “31 Days” and appreciate your bible verse and thought for the day even more. Thanks for being a voice for Christian women who think it is just fine to look fashionable and still really love Jesus.

  23. Please keep showing your ensembles that you put together they are stunning!! And, I agree with Marilyn Ackerman you look way better than the model in that dress!
