Lou & Grey at the LOFT

WHAT I WORE: tip to toe

Shop my dress: Lou & Grey 

Shop my bag: Forever 21

Shop my shoes: Birkenstock


I'm certainly a fan of Ann Taylor (as evidenced in previous blog posts) and her lower-priced sister store, the LOFT. So its no surprise that I picked up a few pieces recently. The LOFT is carrying a new athleisure line called Lou & Grey. Its a very ethereal line based on the senses. My personality is often whimsical so the line really spoke to me...seriously most of the pieces were 50% off at the LOFT store I visited and it was so hard not to buy up everything. 

Have you purchased any pieces from Lou & Grey?

Sheer

 

WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

top: Gentle Fawn | jeans: LOFT | bag: Forever21 | shoes: Ann Taylor

As you know I've been working on being more transparent in my blogging. For me that means shooting some outfits in their natural habitat...as in while i'm wearing them in my everyday life. Did you enjoy the photos my friend snapped of me in my casual friday clothes right after work?

In the name of being authentic, this top was a bit sheer and I tried on several different undergarments with it, but in the end I liked the illusion it created. I even wore it out to girl's night with an even more visible layer underneath. 

I love fashion, but I believe that fashion should be appropriate. This top is sheer enough to wear to a fun night on the town with a beautiful bodysuit underneath and buttoned up enough to wear to work with a blazer over top.  

PS- don't you love boyfriend jeans and heels? It's the perfect combination of effort and effortless!

How to rock the off-the-shoulder trend

WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!


So...off-the-shoulder tops are having a moment right now and everyone's talking about it. I decided to try out the trend after seeing this cute peasant top at Ann Taylor LOFT. Funny enough when I went to style it I pulled pieces (like these boyfriend jeans and sunglasses) that were also from the LOFT. I'm not sponsored by this brand, but you wouldn't be able to tell from my closet. 

My thoughts on the off-the-shoulder trend? Its hard to pull off. The top has to be made just right so that the neckline sits delicately on your shoulders and doesn't ride up like this one did. There is a wide range of options for these tops so try on a few before you buy one, but if you want to experiment like I did try this inexpensive version for just $10 at H&M.

Have you tried the off-the-shoulder trend? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on social media!
