New Arrivals from LOFT

LOFT’s new arrivals for early fall are a mix of classic and trendy pieces perfect for transitioning from late summer to early fall. There are plenty of sleeveless and short sleeve blouses for the warm fall weather.

I love to wear colorful clothes, but I also love a good neutral outfit. I wore this outfit from LOFT to church on Sunday.

I have this clutch in two colors; I’m carrying the tan color.

These jeans run a little big. I’m wearing a size 27, but I could size down because they have some stretch (I washed them, and they didn’t shrink).

LOFT’S New Arrivals

Whether you’re looking for classic pieces or new trends, LOFT has something for everyone this fall. So head on over to the website to start shopping!

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

Beauty For the Heart™– For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians 5:14

Truth: Paul summarizes the entire law of Moses in one command: love your neighbor as yourself. This command is not new; it was given by God to Moses in Leviticus 19:18.

Paul’s point is that this command is the essence of the law. All the other commandments, such as “do not murder,” “do not steal,” and “do not commit adultery,” are summed up in this one command to love.

Why is love so important? Because love is the opposite of selfishness. In a world that says to do whatever makes you feel good, God asks us to be selfless and put others’ needs before our own.

When we love others, we sacrifice our own time, energy, and resources. We are also willing to forgive others when they hurt us, and we choose to love others, even when it is difficult. When we choose to love, we become more like Jesus.

Let your beauty shine from the inside out today!

  1. I haven’t been to Israel but we have close friends who went a few years back. I’ll see if she has any good tips . They went with another couple he’s a pilot so he knew right where to go and which areas were safe! Sounds like a lovely trip to take.
    Love the new fall pieces from loft!

  2. How exciting that you will get to tour Israel!! My husband and I went there with our church about 6 years ago. We went as student’s of the University of Jerusalem. And we prepared ahead of time by studying maps for 6 months. So therefore, the Bible really came alive when we were on the tours. But we only had a few days in the actual classroom. It is a trip of a life time! Enjoy and God bless you!

  3. Can’t wait for you to share wardrobe options for your Israel trip. I will be going to Israel in October too. It is my first time and I am so excited.

  4. I am planning to visit Israel next year. Please post pics of what you pack for this trip. Can’t wait to see the pics when you return. Enjoy!

    1. I went to Israel in March 2023 for 2 weeks with a group from my church. It was an amazing trip! It really brings the Bible to life. I agree with what others have said: comfortable walking shoes and dress in layers – It could be chilly and warm at times. Take a raincoat and small umbrella. We toured all day in the pouring rain! Also take a journal. You will hear a lot of information, history and stories. I tried to take as many notes as I could. It will be challenging to remember everything when you get home. Take an older bathing suit and plan on going in the Dead Sea. If you want any more info feel free to contact me.

  5. Love the beauty for the heart. I used to think love was a feeling but I finally learned that it’s an act of the will, a choice to be kind, patient, all things the Bible tells us. I’m so grateful God has brought me to listen to good pastors and teachers on his Word.

    I went to Israel in January 2020. It was an awesome experience. I went with a church group. I felt safe the whole time. I recommend you check the weather forecast. I took the word of the travel company and thought it would be mild. I didn’t take a heavy coat and I froze a lot. The weather is like in Texas. It can be very cold in January. You’re going in the fall so it’s probably still warm. I would pack totally different if I ever go again. Also appreciate the moment because I focused too much on taking pictures.

    Loft is one of my favorite retailers. They carry stylish petite sizes. This year I have bought a lot of clothing from them.

  6. Cyndi, I love your blog! We went to Israel this past October with our church and it was an amazing experience! 12 action-packed and emotion-packed days – rest up ahead of time! The temps were warm to hot and beautiful – wear layers – thought we would have more time to wash and dry clothes but on the go so much that didn’t happen much. Comfortable shoes are a must! Enjoy!

  7. Cyndi, we’ve been to Israel 3 times, with dates set for a 4th trip. All of our trips have been in late October-early November. Please feel free to email me with any questions on what to bring, wear, etc. I’m happy to help!

  8. You will love Israel! I went with my church in March 2022. It was unusually cold but we just layered up! That’s my suggestion for you, pack clothes you can layer and you’ll be good. Soak up the sites and the Bible will come to life!

  9. We went to Israel in June. It was life changing. Seeing and walking where Jesus lived and walked made so many scriptures come alive and have deeper meaning.
    My advice: have a knee length skort,capris, pull on longer skirt and wear shirts with some kind of sleeve…not sleeveless. Make sure you have a way to stay hydrated because they have dry heat. Must see: where Jesus forgave, restored Peter after Resurrection, Magdala on sea of Galilee, garden of Gethsemane, Golgatha and the garden Tomb.

  10. This is a beautiful outfit! This is what we turn to time and again because it is neutral and easy to wear and easy on the eyes! Good luck in getting your new house tamed down. I hope you will show us pictures soon! You have had quite a summer!

  11. Happy for you that you are going to Israel. Are you going on group, tour?
    Or are you arranging individually for you and your husband?
    We would like to go to Israel (we live in Miami, FL) and yes we know there are many ways, tours group, available. Let us know if you are going in a group.
    We are leaving for Europe in a couple of weeks. Everyone says is very hot there. Could you give me some hints on what would be appropriate? We are going to visit some churches and we have been told to dress appropriately (no shorts or sleeveless tops/dresses).
    Thanks, Cindy, for your daily messages.

  12. Hello Cyndi!

    You are going to LOVE Israel! I had the pleasure to visit this wonderful country in the fall of 2019. It is Beautiful but can also be very hot…especially at the Dead Sea! Sending you prayers for safe journeys and a wonderful time!
    I would recommend layering your clothes for comfort! Happy Travels

    Sandra from Nashville Tennessee!

  13. Hi Cyndi. I was blessed to go to Israel awhile back with my church. It was a rich blessing. Practically speaking, comfy walking shoes are a must, and don’t overpack (like I did!). Take a good sunscreen too. And above all let it be a precious time in your relationship with the Lord! I loved the Sea of Galilee and singing worship songs as we took a boat out on the water there.

  14. Hi Cyndi, love your posts and look forward to reading them. Loft is one of my favorite places to shop for petite women.

  15. I always so enjoy your posts! Thank you! I see that you are going to Israel – I am also making a trip there in April. Would love to have your expertise before and after you go!

  16. Great outfit! What other color do you have in clutch? I ordered color you have but think either black lighter one would be fun too!

  17. Hi Cyndi! I’m so excited for you to go to Israel! My husband and I have been many times and are leading our first tour Sept 1 – 11. We have a ministry that supports Holocaust Survivors and bring awareness to the body of Christ in America about the hebraic roots of our faith and the importance and reason why Christians need to stand by Israel and pray for Israel – now more than ever. I will be praying for your trip and I’d love your prayers for ours. We are taking 21 people with us. Blessings!
