Ok, so I probably won’t be posting Fashion Fridays anymore because I recently started working a new job that is going to be taking a little bit more of my time than normal. My blogging schedule will now be Tuesday, Thursday and maybe Saturday.
Today I’m going to do a fashion post in place of Fashion Fridays and then follow up with another fashion post on Saturday kicking off Style Saturdays. What can I say…I love alliterations!
Today I want to briefly talk about Loft and how obsessed I am with their sweaters. They never fail to have really funky, colorful and comfy sweaters in their stores and online. They keep up with the trends, but always have their own spin on their items. As most of you know I’m still on my slow fashion journey until the end of the year and it just so happens that Loft falls right within my parameters!
I wrote a post not too long ago talking about stores that have great quality clothing but won’t break your bank. Loft also falls into that category of mid-range priced items.
Anywho, I recently purchased some items from Loft and I was able to use one of my friend’s employee discounts. Yay for connections!
I’ve really been feeling velvet for about three years now and lately, I’ve actually been purchasing it. I got my hands on some velvet pants that I’ll mainly be wearing to work most likely. Those will be featured in a different post somewhere down the road. On my first day of my new job, I wore leggings and this very cute velvet top that has a Victorian neckline. I wasn’t sure how flattering it would be, but I LOVE! My job doesn’t require me to dress super business-y, but I would still like to keep it pretty professional. I thought the top was perfectly paired with my leggings and Lucky Brand ballet flats.
The next item, which will probably end up being a fall favorite, is this mustard-colored sweater. I’ve never worn mustard before, but it is a very flattering color for all different skin tones. I also really love the trapeze cut of this sweater and the small bishop sleeves as well. I normally don’t go for this kind of cut or sleeve, but since it was this color and a better quality – I went for it.
The reason I didn’t picture the velvet pants yet is that I haven’t figured out what to wear them with just yet. Leave me a comment and tell me how you would wear gray velvet pants.
Thanks for reading. Check back on Thursday!
