Happy Sunday dear ladies! How is your weekend going? I fit in some time at the gym, worked out Saturday morning, had lunch out with the family, took the kids to their activities, and in the
evening I head out to LOFTto find you their current best pieces. It’s become rainy here, again, surprise, surprise. It was nice to be able spend time inside a cozy dressing room I admit. 🙂


When I published my first installment of the newer series Go Shopping with TheBoxQueen ( first stop was Nordstrom), I asked you to send me names of stores you would like me to visit next. LOFT came up more than once. I shop at LOFT’s online shop quite a bit. I believe they carry fresh but not overtly trendy styles, at a good price, and nice quality. Online there are always “online exclusive” items that you can’t find in the stores.

I’ve seen all the items in person that you can see above, and they are all super pretty. On top of it, there is a 40% sale – no code needed – going on online that I recommend you don’t miss. The deals are pretty good!


This is what I wore to the store.

Few Of My Tips For Trying Out Clothes At Stores:

  • Make sure to wear your own heels. If you’ll visit more than one store, and have to do a lot of walking; take heels in your bag. As I was only visiting Loft during this shopping expedition, I wore my pumps as a part of my outfit.
  • Go when you are rested & well fed. Trying on one outfit after another becomes tiring after a while, so don’t go when you are already exhausted. Make sure to eat before you go, and carry a healthy snack like a nutritious bar in case you feel dizzy, and hungry inside the dressing room.
  • Even if you are in a hurry, snap a quick mirror selfie for future reference. This helps with remembering your favorites that you may not end up purchasing on the spot. Sometimes after I come home, I look at my phone pictures on the big screen, and decide I need an item I overlooked at the store.
  • Pick a time when the store is not a zoo. Usually this is early morning, or late in the evening. I went to LOFT at 7:30 pm. Me, and another lady were the only ones in the store.
  • Put your hair, away from your face, and body in a bun, or pony tail. This helps with seeing the back & shoulder details in your mirror selfies.

Now let’s take a look at my favorites from this LOFT visit.


Some of my picks in the store dressing room.


Painted Floral Jacquard Sweatshirt & Modern Cuffed Cropped White Jeans

This patterned sweatshirt on major sale caught my eye immediately. It has a great fit. Usually this type of sweatshirts can turn out to be boxy, but this one is not. I tried on an XS, and it was true to size. On the side there is a cool little zipper too.

The jeans are the cropped cuffed jeans. In the light they look off white but in fact, they are a tone whiter than how they look. I loved the fit of them, and I think they would be a wonderful addition to your spring closet. ( 40% off as well)

Loft 7 25 32 PM

The dressing room was packed to the brim by my picks. 🙂


Tweed Stripe Tennis Dress 

I really liked this dress. It’s casual, but flirty, and the stripes are a classic. I liked that the fit was comfortable, but not boxy. ( I really have a thing against boxy fits haha, I don’t think they flatter any body type)

Art Floral Pouch & Large Au Revoir Striped Pouch 

One of my purchases this visit was the Art Floral Pouch. It’s SO cute for spring. You can add interest to solid color block outfits with the cheerful floral print, or use it for pattern mixing with stripes. I’ll use it with my striped dresses. I plan to order the striped pouch from the online store soon. I liked it more after I left. These are great affordable pieces to refresh your spring wardrobe with.


Floral Eyelet Sweatshirt & Modern Skinny Jeans in Destructed Blue Nova Wash

The Floral Eyelet Sweatshirt is one of the newest arrivals. I thought it made an easy, everyday outfit with the Modern Skinny Jeans.

The Modern Skinny jeans are GREAT!! I absolutely love their fit. I tried them on at size 26 and loved the fit. They are very comfy too. Uncomfortable tight jeans are my pet peeve. If you are just starting to wear destroyed denim, this is a great beginner piece with small rips.

loft3Colorblock Anorak and Modern Skinny Jeans in Destructed Blue Nova Wash 

Close up of the same Modern Skinnies, with one of my very favorite items from the LOFT trip, Colorblock Anorak. This is THE best lightweight of jacket for cool spring days. LOVE the fitted waist, and the details on it. It reminds me of a piece Stitch Fix would send. (My Stitch Fix reviews)


Sea Floral Romper

This was one of the star pieces of the store I think. The ladies who worked at LOFT all said they love this romper. I agree with them. So difficult to find a romper that’s classy, and cute, and this one is IT. ( see my ROMPER SHOPPING TIPS IN THIS POST) The fabric is nice, pattern elegant, and the long sleeveless are a hard to find detail.


Colorblock Varsity Jacket

This jacket is very on trend. It reminds me of a jacket Golden Tote carried a while ago. ( My Golden Tote reviews) I like the color combo on this one, and love that it’s not bulky. If you are looking for a Varsity jacket, definitely have a look at this one.

loft8Floral Bloom Maxi Dress

The Floral Bloom Maxi Dress actually comes with a very thin same fabric belt, and you can make it much more fitted. When I wear it out, and about I would definitely belt it. I wanted to show you how it looks unbelted so you can have a better idea of the fit. It’s actually ok worn this way as well. The teal color is just way pretty. It would look lovely with a nice hair style, some gold accessories, and light make-up.


Petite Modern High Waist Skinny Ankle Jeans

I can’t seem to locate this top online that I found at the store yesterday. The pants are lovely though. They are the perfect everyday piece, are on major sale at the moment ( especially with the 40% discount), and are the best neutral color.

What do you ladies think? Which of my LOFT pieces are your favorites? Do you shop from LOFT’s online store? Looking forward to hear your thoughts. Please keep on sending your ideas for my next “Shopping with TheBoxQueen” store visit to elif@theboxqueen.com. Love getting your emails. <3

      Cheryl the painted floral sweatshirt was one of my favorites that day. It’s really eye catching and has a dear side zipper. <3 Loft jeans are actually pretty good.
