Got Spots?

I know that quite a few of you have the spotted cheetah pencil skirt from the LOFT which is adorable yet almost impossible to match. Good news for you, the new sienna color that LOFT has just released is a perfect match for the spots.  So far there are four tops to choose from in this color. The Shoulder Ruffle Sweater that I am wearing, the Scoop Neck Sweater,  the Drape Neck Tank and the Ruched Side V-Neck Sweater. My only sidenote to this is that the Drape Neck Tank color in our store looks nothing like the Sienna (it is more of a muted redwood) so I am going to double check tonight to see if it is an in store color or if the sienna coloring in this top is off.

I am a firm believer that things don't have to match they just need to "go" but I must admit, sometimes it is nice to find a match. For more styling ideas, see this post

I bought this skirt after I saw it on your blog, love it. I went to the Loft yesterday but didn't see the sweater (unless is new today). I'll have to check it out :)
Love your outfit!

I wish I had that skirt so I could match it up with that cute sweater - love the ruffle detail! Love the belt, too!

LOVE that belt.....I also loved all the other styling you did with that skirt.... I too like to do "un-matched" but that ruffle sweater looks like a must for that skirt! looks great! I totally forgot about that belt as I was wanting to see it and get it..... I was in the store yesterday but did not see you nor did I think to look for the belt. I was in a hurry.. but did try on the "cowl neck gray sweater dress" that was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too short for me...boo hoo. I was hoping it would be a DRESS!

Just discovered your blog! Gotta love the internet world...just when you think you've seen all the great blogs that exist, you run across something so lovely as this! Love the belt...and I sooo wish I could get my hands on one :( oh well. Thanks for the great style tips!

also...just wondering, how tall are you? I'm 5'10" and have the hardest times finding stylish skirts that aren't too short...yours seem to hit "just right"...trying to compare in pics. :) Thanks in advance!

Thanks everyone...sorry I am sooooo behind on my comments!

The sweater is brand new so it just hit out backrooms last week. The drapey tank color isn't a match. It must be the way the material picks up the dye versus the sweaters....who knows.

Barbara-ha! ha! I am so with you on the length of that dress. I wouldn't dare wear mine without leggings. The belt is long gone but we just got some cute new ones in.

Heaven Sown-I am 5'9" and a quarter ;) I have a hard time finding long enough skirts too but pencil skirts usually will work for me. Most of the other LOFT skirts are too short and the dresses are even harder to find the length on
