LOFT Ink Shift Dress

Seriously, I think LOFT just got tired of coming up with creative names for their items. Either that or the description was just easier for locating items but that would be way too sensible. Today I am wearing the Ink Shift Dress with Ruffle Neckline that I am going to rename the Watercolored Poppies Shift Dress.

This is too short for me but I love the print and neckline so I am finding other ways to wear it. Here is today's look, what do you think? Can I pull this one off?
dress and cardigan-LOFT
belt and capri leggings-Kohls (Simply Vera)
Shoes-Bandolino

As a quick update, I did send out an email to everyone who requested a Friends & Family coupon that our associate link isn't working. I am going to try to figure it out tonight when I go in to work. Promise I won't forget about ya!

No question, you absolutely make that work! This is such a great outfit, I love the dress with the black belt and leggings. So cute!

Stylestance said...

Yes, you pull this off beautifully. Short dress, but your leggings keep the look modern and very cute ...

This is such a beautiful print--the length is unfortunate for taller gals, but you are still rocking it with leggings! Does the print come in a top? There are so many pretty prints (Impressionist skirt!) that I passed on because of length issues. *sigh*

Wow! That dress looks awesome on you! Is that the long-sleeve v-neck cardigan in the Oak Brown Melange color? Is the color in your pic close to that color in real life? And what size of the cardigan are you wearing if I may ask? I like that length on you but the pics on the model make the cardigan look shorter somehow. How does it compare to the length of the JCrew infinity cardigan? Sorry for all the questions! I just really love this look on you =)

Debye said...

Apples and Pencil Skirts-so far they have just made a scarf in this print (besides the dress). I am on the same page as you with the lengths. I like the regular J Crew pencil skirts as opposed to the shorter length


Mamaliu-the cardigan is the oak brown melange color which I just LOVE. In fact, almost all of the SA's bought one in this color. It may be a tad browner IRL but it seems to go with everything! Today I am wearing a Medium (the small sold out in two days in our store) but yesterday I wore a small in the vintage yellow. I don't have the infinity cardigan but the length of the medium is pretty much the exact length of the medium long merino cardigan from J Crew

That dress is adorable! I love how you have it styled- I'd love to see it with flats or sandals too.

Jessica said...

For sure you pulled it off! I love it with the neutral sweater too.

Andrea said...

Love love LOVE that print. I think the dress would also be beautiful into fall with tights and boots.

Mere said...

Love it! Looks great with the leggings!

Veronika said...

I think you look fab! I've never thought to use leggings under a too-short dress like this! thanks for the inspiration :)

Jan Russell said...

You are just too cute - that is such a pretty dress, and I'm glad you found a way to make it work, I'm convinced you can pull off anything!

Jenni said...

You are totally pulling off that dress!!! LOVE how you styled it...I'm a fan of leggings for dresses that are just a tad too short too! I'm plannin on a trip to LOFT on Monday---hope they have this to try on! =)

Karen said...

You look fabulous as usual!

I want to thank you for the coupon. I will put it to good use!!

Bellamama said...

I will have to try on this dress too. I love the look on you! By the way, how was the book Linger? One you would definitely recommend?

Momoberry said...

The dress looks cute with the leggings. I think it's a keeper. Thank you for the code as well!

Ashley said...

You look amazing as usual! I might be too late but I would love to get the code for the 30% discount!

My email is ashjones7@gmail.com

sweetsy said...

Super cute..you can def pull this off! It would be great with tights/tall boots as well. I do think I would prefer maybe a black flat or darker flat shoe with the leggings but you still look darling as usual=)

LOFT has many great floral print scarves, I see. But I think I love that you can really see the print by having it in the dress versus scarf. Enjoy!

Debye said...

Barbara-it was great meeting you too! You and your husnad were adorable and the pencil skirt was perfection on you.

Jan-I am convinced of the same thing about you!

Bellamama-I loved Linger. It is a literary masterpiece but a great read nonetheless. I wasn't sure how she was going to follow up Shiver (1st book in the series) but it was just as good. If you liked Twilight, you'll like these books!

Anonymous-I am so glad you liked the key lime pie!

I should have the F & F code out to everyone, if you didn't get it, please just let me know :)

meghan said...

Debye said...
