Fashion Friday: Dress Pants & Double V Neck Sweater From Loft

Hello and happy Friday! In a recent Fashion Friday post I had mentioned that I placed an order with Loft, and today I am sharing two of the items I received in that order.

I've been wanting to add a pair of dress pants to my closet and loved this "nautical navy" color of the Loft Riviera Pants. These are a 26" inseam (in the regular lengths) so I decided to get them instead of the petite size. While I was happy with the lengths they were just too lose on the waist as I am sure you can tell by looking at these pictures, so I had to send them back. I did love the quality of the material though and would recommend them but as mentioned I found that they run a size too big. 

I love how Loft usually shares outfit ideas with their clothing. The look above is my favorite they shared for these pants, and I think it's so easy to recreate with items we might already have. 

This Double V-Neck Sweater is also from Loft. Love the stripes and pale blue color! It's a perfect top to dress up with dress pants or dress down with a pair of jeans. Here is a peek at the v neck in the back. Regular sizes are limited, but it appears fully stocked in petite sizes.


By the way, some of Loft's sale prices are currently marked an extra 50% off  of the prices shown.  That brings  the V-Neck sweater to just under $20. The pants are currently marked an extra 30% off.
PS: Loft is offering FREE SHIPPING - for a very limited time.

Riviera Pants Marisa Fit //  Double V-Neck Sweater // Shoe Options in Navy // Similar crossbody bag from Target // Similar Gray Shoulder Bag by Rebecca Minkoff (expensive premium brand but currently marked at 40% off)  

 I didn't go anywhere with this outfit but wanted to add a handbag (It's easier to pose for a photo that way 😀) I decided on another shoulder bag. I'm pretty sure I picked this one up from Target a few years ago, but I could be wrong as I've had it for a while. It's a nice gray stone color that I think goes so well with most colors. This crossbody bag from Target although a little bit of a darker gray, does look somewhat similar. But if you like premium brands then you might like  this leather shoulder bag by Rebecca Minkoff. While it's an expensive item, it's currently on sale for 40% off. And it's definitely a handbag that will be in style pretty much forever, I think. 

I'm not going to say much about my footwear from the look above. I've had these shoes for over 15 years. They are dressier than what I normally wear so I did not wear them a lot. But I really do need to look for a new pair of dress shoes....for this specific look I'd probably go for some navy flats or maybe something with a low heel.

Below I've styled this same Double V-Neck Sweater again with some boot cut jeans from my closet.

I'm wearing my black Miz Mooz booties with the bootcut jeans. I love that they have a very low heel and are soooo comfortable! In fact I also own these in the brandy color which was the first color I purchased but I must have repeated myself a few too many times that I wish I had them in black as well .... didn't think my husband would actually order them for me for Christmas last year! 

While this specific style of Miz Mooz in no longer available, Nordstrom does sell an newer version of these Miz Mooz Booties. I'm also really liking these victorian inspired boots by Miz Mooz but not sure what I'd wear with them.

Please ignore my dead grass. These pictures were taken just after a drought and all that seemed to have survived are some weeds - we don't use weed killer on our lawn.

That sweater is so cute! I love the soft colors. It looks like it can dress up or down really well!

Thanks so much, Shauna!

So cute! I love the back of the sweater. I had no idea LOFT gave outfit ideas. I love that.

Mica said...

Such a cute striped top and I like those navy pants - shame they are too big! Maybe you could get a smaller size? they would be great for work! I do like the jeans with the stripes too though :)

Thank you so much for joining the #weekdayWearLinkUp :) I just posted this week's linkup, I'd love you to join again! :)

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

I would have loved a smaller size on these pants. But this is the XS and for some reason they didn't fit. Sometimes they offer XXS clothing but not this time :-(

Thanks Amy. I love those ideas from Loft, but it's dangerous for my wallet LOL!
