I’ve always been a big fan of LOFT. I used to shop there all the time when I spent 5 days a week rocking business casual threads (can you really rock in work clothes?!). Plus they always have super cute tees, tanks and dresses for every situation in between. But after I had two kids and quit my job, I find myself barely shopping at LOFT anymore. Not because I think their clothes are any less cute, but I rarely make it into a store and HATE paying for shipping. I do a good majority of my shopping online and LOFT rarely has free shipping. If I’m going to buy a $20 tank or $30 sweater, I don’t want to add an extra $8 onto the total for shipping and handling. Call me cheap, but I blame all the other retailers out there who always offer free shipping. #spoiled
When I saw LOFT was offering 40% off everything with no exclusions plus free shipping (use code SHIP40), they finally got my attention. Now they are talking my language. Sale ends tonight (actually 3 am EST on 3/29). Here are a few rockin’ threads that would be good whether you are employed full-time or if you are a full-time working stay-at-home mom.
Back in my business casual days, I would have been all over this linen cotton sweater. My go-to work uniform used to be black pants or a black skirt and a “thin sweater”, as I liked to call them. I always felt like the thin sweater was comfortable, easy to wear, kept me warm enough in the winter and not too warm in the summer. Add a necklace or cute bracelet and it is an easy-peasy outfit when you are running out the door in the morning. I actually love how LOFT styled the sweater with jean shorts. This sweater also comes in khaki, white and lavender, but I’m always drawn to eye-catching colors like the yellow above. $29.70 (originally $49.50) with the promo code.
I also love this black fringe shell. Totally on-trend (see my post about fringe here) and easy to wear with a cardigan, jacket or all by itself. Now the leather skirt is not my cup of tea, but it would look cute with a non-leather pencil skirt. This shell is already on sale, so with the promo code, it comes down to $14.93 (originally $44.50).
I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect tank for summer and these two might be perfect. The aqua rib trim tank is a tad dressier with a flowy silky material that can easily be dressed up or down. It comes down to $23.70 (originally $39.50) with the promo code. The vintage soft shell comes in black, white, mint and fluorescent peach and is only $13.50 (originally $22.50).
LOFT always has the cutest dresses, although you want to be careful wearing one to a shower or wedding. I’ve totally shown up at a summer wedding wearing an adorable LOFT dress that I purchased a week prior, only to find a lady at the table next to mine wearing the exact same dress. #ughtheworst #embarrassing
I find that as long as you don’t buy an item immediately before the event, you are probably safe. How cute is this paisley maxi? It comes in normal and petite lengths for $58.80 (originally $98). Absolutely perfect for a beach wedding.
Speaking of the beach, a good cover-up is a must-have. Let’s be honest, most of us over the age of 25 aren’t exactly excited about walking around in a swimsuit, so it is totally worth splurging for a good one. I love the tassles on this red strappy dress and at $35.70 (originally $59.50) it really isn’t much of a splurge.
Are you as excited about LOFT free shipping as me?
