Work Appropriate Leather

Top- Loft, Skirt- Loft, Booties- Nordstrom (similar), Coat- Forever 21, Tights- Target, Necklace- Anthropologie, Bag- Forever 21

I rarely shop at Loft. I think its a combination of the prices being a little too high than I like to pay, the shipping fee being $9, and that when they have their big end of season sales (which, I will admit, are awesome), the items become final sale. I have placed too many online orders and either had to return the item because it didn't fit and lose my $9 shipping charge, or I ordered something final sale that didn't fit and I couldn't do anything about it. Maybe I'm just picking the wrong sizes, but I am usually pretty good at doing that when placing online orders. Or maybe its just bad luck.

Anyway, I went to Loft with my mom after Christmas and was able to get both this top and skirt for great prices with the 50% off promo (the skirt was $18!). Then I saw the additional 60% off sale email come through inbox and I took another look. I went to a different store that had a ton of sale inventory and came out with three more great items at unbelievable prices! I guess the moral of the story is that I need to stop ordering online and go to the store when I want to shop there.

I have one more short story to tell today, and that is about this stunner of a statement necklace! My boyfriend picked this out for my for Christmas and I love it. The next time I looked at my Pinterest wishlist board, I realized I had pinned the same one a few weeks before! And no, he doesn't look at my Pinterest, he is just THAT good at picking out things that I like. I'm lucky :)


  1. I totally scored that same skirt at LOFT over Christmas. I love it and it was too good of a deal to pass up. The way you styled it is so chic and classic.


    Something About That

  2. I love that he picked up the exact necklace you pinned - by accident! Definitely the sign of a keeper! :) Loft is hit and miss for me, too, but I'm glad you found these pieces - they are perfect together and on you! Carylee | more pieces of me
