I shop from LOFT quite a bit. I usually order from their online store as I love to discover the many online exclusives that I can’t find at the physical stores. My city has its share of LOFT retail stores tough, and when I have some extra time I love to go in to see some pieces I liked, in person. I especially enjoy sharing my best picks with you ladies as I know there are quite a bit of LOFT fans like me amongst you. 🙂
On Friday after I dropped the kids off to school, I had a couple extra hours for myself and I stopped by LOFT. As March marked the start of spring,I love how all the stores are getting a facelift with colorful merchandise, and beautiful displays. LOFT was no different. As I entered the store, the salesladies were changing the outfits on the mannequins with the new arrivals, and the store looked so cheerful with a great variety of spring styles.

Before I start talking about my favorites from LOFT, I want to point you towards all my previous Go Shopping With TheBoxQueen posts you can find here. Just to refresh your memories, I put together this series, as I think it’s helpful to see items you love on a real person instead of on a hanger. It gives you a better idea of how the pieces fit. In the collage above, find my best picks most of which you’ll find styled below.
- This blazer comes in three colors, and I love the textured fabric. I actually bought this blazer in the Tomato Puree version; great vibrant color.
- The online exclusive striped dress is so gorgeous. Love the modern cut, and the color combination. Such a classic but still a new & fresh shape.
- These cropped pants have a beautiful print. They would be a great piece to spice up your casual wardrobe and would pair with many types of solid tops as well as patterns such as stripes.
- Looking for a transitional jacket that will take you from spring days to chiller spring nights? This navy swing anorak would match with practically anything and would keep you warm in unpredictable weather.
Ready to see my favorites right from the dressing room? Let’ start ladies. <3 At the very end of this post I’ll also be sharing some great weekend sales.
GO SHOPPING WITH THEBOXQUEEN – BEST OF LOFT MARCH 2016
My shopping Outfit – This outfit is how I started my day; it’s my shopping outfit. I wanted to wear my new fringe boots, because one I am a bit obsessed with them since I bought them, and two they go with a lot of outfits when I try on various pieces.
I am still in love with the fit of these TopShop moto jeans I bought a couple months ago. The striped Topshop Tee is a great basic, and I LOVE LOVE this burgundy jacket I kept from Stitch Fix. (which you can see in this Stitch Fix Review )
The first piece I tried on is this blouson dress. I ordered this dress online a couple days ago and wanted to show it to you from the dressing room. After I tried it on at the store, I am super happy with my decision of ordering the dress. It has a flattering fit, and will be one of my go to pieces this season.
My necklace is one the Kendra Scott pieces I kept from Rocksbox. If you haven’t already tried Rocksbox, you can get a FREE MONTH here with CODE: theboxqueenxoxo.
I wear denim shorts quite a bit in summer but it can be difficult to find shorts that have a good fit, and that are also appropriate for daily wear. I wear cut-offs at the beach or poolside, however for me to be able to wear jean shorts casually they have to be at a reasonable length like these LOFT denim shorts, and also they should not be super tight. I bought these ones and really like them.
LOFT makes great staple tee’s and this scoop neck one has a cheerful print. I buy basic tee’s and tanks almost in bulk every year and just pull one on over shorts, and skirts whenever I need an instant everyday outfit.
The skinny chinos in Marisa Fit is actually pretty relaxed on me especially when I try on my regular size. As they are crops I would probably not hem them to wear with wedges and sandals however I needed to cuff them with these booties.
I quite like these utility blouses, very easy breezy for spring with a slimming fit. The online store has these colors.
If you are my friend on Instagram, you may have seen this dress I shared recently. It really is the coziest short sleeve dress I’ve found lately. The Lou & Grey brand has lovely lounge wear pieces, and I plan to wear this dress non stop the coming couple months.
When I was skimming through the racks, this lightweight anorak caught my eye. I think it’s a great piece for spring (unless you are living in one of the “hot all year round” states) for most of us. It would take you from a less than warm day to chilly spring evenings. The navy color, and golden accents look casually classy, and elegant.
I’ve been seeing eyelet pieces everywhere lately, and this eyelet day dress is a pretty example of the design. I love the soothing green color, and the sweet girly style.
You’ll see me in this collarless blazer in the coming days on TheBoxQueen for sure as I bought it in the bright reddish color. I love that it’s just right length, and that it has a defined waist. The cute collarless style, and the textured fabric are fab too. This is sure to be a spring staple.
Another girly eyelet piece is this very cute skirt! I wore it with a lace detailed shell. The store version was navy but the online store has the pink color option.
This outfit is one of my very favorite of the bunch. The lightweight sweater is perfect for those of you living in colder climates that don’t warm up as easily in spring. I’ll update when I find the exact one online, however this sweater has a very similar feel.
I am a fan of these patterned Marisa pants. I would wear them with the heels I kept from my Trunk Club. (Review here)
Last but not least is the Ruffle shell worn with the same cropped pants from above. I love the color and the neckline detail.
