In the Fitting Room

It has literally been ages since I’ve shopped at Loft. Honestly I was trying to stay away until Fall clothes came out because I have enough for Summer. On top of that I had received a $20 Rewards Card (the one you earn when you spend a certain amount which, btw, I don’t want to think about). Those cards are good for a few months and when I received mine I made a mental note to onto it until Labor Day. Fast forward to Labor Day and the impending doom associated with Irma and the last thing I was thinking about was shopping. Especially after Nolan and his medical crisis came to town.

Unfortunately for me my savings card had an expiration date of 9/9 on it. That just happened to be the day I spent at the ER with Nolan. After the storm and once my power had been restored was a different story. With a week off of school I hadn’t planned on I decided it was as good a time as any to shop. Imagine my surprise when I realized my card expired! I was going to call customer service but I decided that would be my last resort; I’d ask my local store if they would honor my card and I was prepared to give them my sob story. Although the sales associate who greeted me was less than friendly and unwilling to help me (Ima give her the benefit of the doubt here – she was either seriously carb deprived or perhaps had no power on at home from the storm and was therefore cranky) the store manager was so very kind and more than willing to allow me to use my expired savings card! Lesson learned – ask, the worst they can say is no!

You should know I was meeting a friend for an afternoon movie so I didn’t have all the time in the world and the fitting room was hot. Maybe the air wasn’t properly working after the storm but trying things on when I’m sweating is not my favorite thing. So here ya go, a look at what I tried on!
Up first these Festival Fluid Pants . They are certainly fun and have just about every color in them. I’m wearing a size 4 so I’d say they run true to size.























Next I tried on a dress my sweet friend Lisa who blogs at Coast to Coast recently shared  here. The dress is on super sale right now and it’s so dang cute! I love that it is orange and blue because #gogators I can wear it for college spirit day at school and still feel put together. It’s also perfect for this time of year in Florida and will be fabulous with a denim jacket or cardigan. I’m wearing it in a small.
























My focus was on tops and I found several that caught my eye. First up this Blossom Bar Back Blouse . I love the colors of this blouse! I tried it on in a medium because there was no small. It was comfortable and cute. I love wearing colors other than just grey,black,and brown in Fall and Winter. This blouse was so pretty and will be great layered under sweaters and jackets when it cools down but is pretty enough to stand alone.It’s a great length and you can see it covers my bottom. I grabbed a pair of skinny jeans to try on with the tops I chose. I’m wearing a 4 in the jeans and I really liked the way they fit. I didn’t buy them because I don’t need a pair of dark skinnies at the moment but if I did these would be a contender.













This plaid cascade sleeve blouse was another winner. I really like this top so much! I love the sleeves! I’m wearing a small. I’d love to see it with a leopard scarf in cooler weather.
























Anything gingham catches my eye right away so falling for this stunner was a no brainer. I love the split bell sleeve with the tie detail. It’s a longer top too so it will be fabulous with my faux leather leggings this Winter.
























The last top I tried on is a nice alternative to a chambray shirt. The cold shoulder detail and ruffle give it a little feminine flair without being too sweet. This chambray flounce cold shoulder shirt is super cute! I’m wearing a size small and the sleeves are rolled up. I love it! It’s a good length and the fabric is a great weight – not too thin and not too heavy.
Last but not least I snagged a pair of boyfriend jeans to try. I didn’t realize they had a button fly! That’s a deal breaker for me. I use the bathroom way too much during the day to deal with that foolishness and I got bored just unbuttoning them! They were cute though and since I refused to button them once they were on I didn’t take a selfie #thankmenow.

So what did I end up bringing home with me? The dress, this top, and this top.But you can be sure I’ll keep my eye on the rest because it was so hard to decide!
