Hello, hello

Hope everyone had a wonderful (and well-deserved) three day weekend. I am not quite ready to admit that we are back in the work week even though it is almost over. I have some J Crew items arriving today so I will do a quick review on those later. I have to figure out a new strategy for my daily photos. With my regular "photographer" being gone from 5:40 am to 5:15pm it gets tricky. Maybe it is time to figure out how to use the self timer.

Her is an outfit I wore the other night to work. It was a little better IRL IMO (enough acronyms for you?).
 
Palmera Tank-J Crew
Cardigan-LOFT
lean boyfriend jeans-LOFT
Juliette Pumps-J Crew

No, that is not the double woven cardigan again....you are imagining things (wink). I love the new metallic jaquard tie front cami it is so cute and easy to wear. This Saturday, LOFT is having one of it's Style It events which are always a blast! It usually involves snacks and treats and a good deal........what more can a girl ask for espesially if shopping with kids?
Metallic Jaquard Tie-Front Cami-LOFT
Woven Bow Cardigan-LOFT
Modern Slim Jeans-LOFT
Shoes-Bandolino

p.s. I will also try to get my new LOFT picks together for you before the styling event.........

I love the tie front top from LOFT!!! So cute! I hate using self timer to take pictures but my photographer is in school too!!

Love the cardigan! Actually picked one up during the last promo and am delighted you are wearing it so often and sharing your styling tips. Have you tried on the ruffles and rosettes tee/tank at the loft? Looks cute online. Would love to hear your thoughts on sizing and colors if you have tried it on. Thanks.

I am so struggling with my own pictures;) But I'm working on it. I tried the self timer once or twice but hated the pictures. I'm too stiff, if you know what I mean.

LOVE both your outfits and can't wait to see your reviews and picks.

That J Crew tank is so gorgeous, a sure-fire way to spice up an otherwise kind of ordinary outfit. You always look so beautiful in these pictures. :)

Bellamama said...

Looking forward to your picks. Those lean boyfriend jeans make your legs look even longer and slimmer. Also, I love the second outfit, what a pretty tank top.

You ALWAYS look fabulous. I am in love with your second outfit.

I have a Loft question. On the website in a couple of sweater and jacket shots the models are wearing a long sleeve top with stripes. The stripes look like they might be sequins, or maybe it's a painted on affect. I cannot find this top on the website. Do you know anything about it? Here are a couple of links of what I'm talking about.

both outfits look great. I like the new location, too!

Jenni said...

I am a self-picture taker (timer) now too that my photographer is back in school. Love your outfits...I can't seem to find that sequin tie shirt online...maybe I missed it. can't wait to see what your picks are...all my rewards cards and just waiting to be used next week!!! =) Have you tried on the over the knee riding boots at all? They are gorgeous online!

Jessica said...

I love both outfits! And I need a LOFT closer to me so I can shop there since I never really buy anything from them online.

Kelsey said...

LOVE that first cardi, I have been eyeing it for a while....let me know when it hits clearance! ;)You look b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l.

Amy-I haven't tried on the ruffles and rosettes tee yet but I had a customer and my boss try it on and it is so adorable on! It seems to run pretty true to size and my favorite is the tropical sand colorway.

Elle & Bellamama-ahhh...thanks!

SZMom-I knew EXACTLY what top you were talking about before the links...I have been on the look out for it! It comes in navy, gray and burgandy and it is like a painted stripe (no sequins). It is in our current "store set" guides but as of yesterday we didn't have any in. I am hoping it is in tonight's shipment otherwise it should be in the following week!

Pamela-the new location has to do with me running out the door when I finally get to an OOTD pic;)

jenni-the tie front top should be here: http://www.anntaylorloft.com/catalog/product.jsp?productId=26845&N=0&Ntk=KeywordSearch&Ntt=metallic+jaquard&Nty=1&Ntx=mode%2Bmatchallpartial&found=1&defaultSizeType=Regular

I wish I had tried on the riding boots, we don't carry shoes anymore at our store but I may drive to another location just to check them out!

Jessica-they are definitely stepping it up lately!

Kelsey-I will definitely let ya know~

szmom said...

Debye, Thanks so much for the info! For some reason I am obsessing about that tee, and have been driving myself crazy looking for it.

great outfits! I love that striped top!

ModestlyMe,

I just LOVE your blog. You have great style and I just wanted to thank you for posting your outfits. You inspire me.

Some quick questions about that LOVELY striped cardigan from the Loft. What size are you wearing? I am a S (sometimes XS) in J Crew cardis, and a 2 in their camis. I do not know what size I would need in Loft cardis. An S?

Do you work at the Loft? Do you know if these cardis are going to go on sale? I really LOVE it and want it in the ivory color but I cannot bring myself to spend 70 dollars (with shipping on it). The smallest size left is an S on line and I am afraid if I wait for a sale I will miss out. Any thoughts?

Thanks a bunch!

Oh and the Loft Zebra cardi you have on in the blog in the brown color is LOVELY too. I have been looking for one forever. Do you know where I could find it? It is sold out on line. (And I live outside of the U.S. so I do not have access to B &M stores)

Thanks for your patience with all of my questions!!!!!
