Weekend Shopping at... LOFT

Yesterday, I decided to take advantage of Florida's tax-free weekend and do some shopping. Although I only swung by LOFT (the mall was way too crowded for me!) I was able to score a few great pieces:

LOFT clothes

1. LOFT Candy Dot Shift Skirt - Original Price: $59.50 -> Sale Price: $24.99 + extra 60% off  = $10

Although it's kind of hard to see, this tan pencil skirt is adorned with little citron yellow polka dots - super adorable. Plus, at just $10, I couldn't pass it up!

2. LOFT Boyfriend Jeans - Original Price: $79.50 -> Sale Price: $74.99 + extra 60% off = $30

I've been wanting some boyfriend jeans for a while now, but never liked how they looked on me. Then, I tried this pair - they fit like a dream. These jeans are perfectly slouchy, but still fitted enough so that they don't look sloppy.

3. LOFT Aloha Stripe Full Skirt - Original Price: $59.50 -> Sale Price: $34.99 + extra 60% off = $14

I'm a total stripe-addict, and this skirt makes a stylish addition to my wardrobe. The multi-colored stripes mean that I can mix-and-match this piece with so many different tops.

Total: $54 (about 73% off total!) Not bad, right?

Fashion Find: The Perfect Denim Shirt

I'd been looking for the perfect denim button-up for months, so I was pretty excited to (finally) find it last weekend. As with most specific items I shop for, I came up with a list of criteria my ultimate denim shirt would possess:
  • Since most of my jeans are darker washes, it had to be a light denim. That way, I can rock the double denim look without it being too matchy-matchy.
  • I want this top to last me for a few years, so no embellishments or distressing that could easily date it.
  • 100% cotton is a must for hot Florida summers.
  • I needed to spend less than $50.
  • Most importantly, it had to fit properly. I'm busty, so finding a button-up blouse that actually buttons up with no pulling or gaping can be a struggle.
Lo and behold, I found a top that met all that criteria at JCP of all places. The department store recently opened up Joe Fresh pop-up shops, which is where I found this shirt:

Best of all, it came in under budget at just $29. I can see this top quickly becoming one of my new favorite wardrobe staples!

Here's how I'm planning to wear my denim button-up this summer:
