Happy Friday, ladies! What are you up to this weekend? We don’t have any big plans, but we usually end up doing something like playing games with my daughter’s family, so we’ll see!

Today I have a LOFT try-on session; it’s been a hot minute since I’ve been to our LOFT, and I was anxious to see what they had in the store.

Valentine’s Day is in the air,  and they have a lot of heart clothes. I tried on two sweaters that would be cute for V-Day.

Both sweaters are Lou & Gray and unfortunately not on sale. They are both short but not crop length. I like the length.

Sweater (I’m wearing a small but would prefer an XS)//High Rise Straight Crop Jeans (I’m wearing size 27)//earrings (sold out)//mules

This mock neck turtleneck comes in two colors, and I’m wearing the black. This is a warm top and perfect for our winter weather.

A trend this year is hoodies, and this one is lightweight with a waffle knit texture. I shared an outfit inspiration board with you below on how I would wear this hoodie.

Blazer//Hoodie//Black Jeans//Crossbody Bag//Sneakers

I styled this JAMISON Park Slope Blazer last January. This one has a zip-out hoodie so that you can wear it as a plain black blazer. This one is sold out, but they have a similar one that I really like here.

This is my kind of casual sweatshirt because it’s feminine with ruffle sleeves.

Okay, I’m not looking for more loungewear, but this is a cute set, and it’s tie-dye, which on-trend for spring.

This Puff Shoulder Top can be worn well into spring. It will be cute with white jeans or shorts. I’m styling it with a pair of wide-leg pants, but I can’t find them online.

I really like this pinstriped tunic shirt. It’s slightly see-through, but it would be cute with a crisp white tee, and wear this tunic over it. It would resemble a shirt jacket that everyone is wearing.

Tunic Shirt (I’m wearing a petite XS)//Flare Crop Jeans (I’m wearing a size 26)//earrings (sold out)//mules

I love a lightweight sweater that I can wear in spring, and this one will be perfect with these pretty blue colors.

Stripes get me every time, and this navy and pink one has buttons on one shoulder for extra detail.

LOFT has a lot more online so make sure you check them out!

Thank you for taking time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and Instagram.

Beauty For the Heart~~ When I stand before God one day, I hope I can say, “I pressed through the fear, the failure, the imperfections and used everything you gave me. -Donna Pisani

Boy, there has been a lot of fear, too many failures, and lots of imperfections, but I pray I use it all for His glory!

Have a blessed day!

  1. Lots of cute stuff at Loft and I’ve been ordering online but had to return a few items in the store and didn’t see much in the store as I don’t think they are stocking as much. Wow, looks like crop flare jeans will be in again and they just don’t look good on short women like me. But I do have a few pair and may try again this year to wear them.

  2. The blue and pink stripe is so pretty in person you can’t help but want to buy it and put it on. I lovet he crop jeans, but I am short so they look funny on me. Thanks for the try on. I love Loft and glad they are getting some new pieces in!

  3. HI Cindy! I just LOVE your style. I turned 50 last week and am struggling a little bit. Thanks for sharing with us every day – it’s the first thing I do.


  4. These are all great pieces! How’d did you chose what to bring home. I’m going to watch for some of these to maybe go on sale as our Canadian prices are unfortunately a lot higher! That grey love sweater is perfect for valentines but I’d wear it longer too. Loving the two Jean styles although at 5’3 getting the length to hit in the right spot can be a challenge. I did find a straight crop last year! Heading to friends for supper tomorrow we always celebrate our Janus birthdays together! A long time tradition!

  5. I don’t think our dressing rooms have opened back up yet. You found a lot of cute things. I am loving the jeans! (and your mules are super cute)

  6. Thank you for doing the try-on! I agree there isn’t much selection in the store like there is online, these days. The pink and blue striped sweater looks fabulous! The tye-dye is not good at all. The two Valentine sweaters look fun:) I think that sweatshirt with the ruffles on the shoulder looks like a football player’s uniform shirt:( I hope you keep the beautiful striped sweater. Take care:)

  7. I just got that waffle knit hoodie in the mail and wore it all day yesterday. I love it. I bought the ivory color. Had in mind to wear with my sole society leopard sneakers I ordered awhile back that you styled. Love them. I only paid $25 for the hoodie. So worth it. It is somewhat see through so I wear a cami underneath. Perfect thickness for inside now and Spring/Summer to come. Did you take any of your try ons home? I’d like to get to a store soon to try the crop jeans. I’m shorter than you and crop sometimes looks like flood water pants on me. Have a good weekend and thanks for doing a Loft try on. My favorite store for good quality and good sales. I’ve had my eye on that first heart sweater you tried for awhile now.

  8. Everything looks so good on you. I would love to be able to wear an xs 🙂 Unfortunately the Canadian prices are crazy high at the Loft, and they don’t seem to have many sales. But I love seeing your try-ons, you are just gorgeous!

  9. Just realized you had the button down flare crop in the last pictures. I’ve been eyeing them for months wanting to get in to try them. They were so cheap at one point I wished I had ordered. Just think they will hit me at wrong place. I’m 5’3”. So many of the items you styled I’ve liked and thought about ordering. So cute.
