LOFTing (again)

You may notice a slight difference in the post subjects around here for a few weeks.  It may just be from Christmas shopping burnout, but I'm really feeling the desire to shop my closet right now & keep my focus on remixing all the great pieces I already have, rather than adding to it.

For today, however, I wanted to bring to light a couple of pieces that I got for a great price.  Remember that I believe fashion doesn't have to "break the bank" & that you can feel great without spending a ton of money.  These two pieces demonstrate how I typically shop...I shop the clearance racks & the sales.  I really try hard not to pay full price for anything!

It's no secret that I love the LOFT.  They have great staple pieces for any wardrobe plus fun statement pieces to bring additional vibrancy to your wardrobe.   That being said, never pay full price at their store!  I had been eyeing this leather skirt when I first saw it back in October/November, but there was no way I could justify the $70 price tag.  However, with patience I was able to pick this skirt up before Christmas for $21.36 (including tax).  Now that is a justifiable price, right?!

Again, right after the Holiday's they were offering some great sales, so I did picked up 2 boyfriend cardigans to replace some that were looking worn in my closet.  Original price for each was $49.50, but I only paid $20 each.






Cardigan - LOFT in Magenta Sky// Striped Tee - Limited, old (tank option) // Faux Leather Skirt - LOFT // Belt - old (option, option)  // Booties - Target, last season (option, option) // Necklace - Nordstrom , currently unavailable (option) // Ring - Limited // Leopard Wrap Bracelet - Charming Charlie, old (option)


I opted to add a braided belt at the waist band this time, which added more texture to the outfit.  I really fell in love with the rich jewel tone of the Magenta Sky cardigan & was happy with the bright pop of color in the outfit.

LOFT is having a sale right now, 40% off regular styles & 60% off sale styles!!

Look for more bargains & remix posts on the blog down the road.  I love a challenge (when it comes to my wardrobe) so I'm excited to see how far I can take it & how we can each inspire one another.

  1. (I love it when I'm typing something on your page and get an email notification that you were just on my page!! ha ha). First, you are a fantastic bargain shopper! Killer deals on all of those new pieces. Second, your hot pink + black outfit today and Carylee's pink & black set on IG yesterday are giving me the urge to wear something in this color combo. Don't be surprised if you see me in these colors soon!

    1. Thanks Marta! We really have plenty of really good items in our closets already that need more wear-time, so this should be fun :-)
