Sage Green Sweater and Loft's Early Fall Sale.

Finally a new outfit post on this blog. This one was taken a few days after I chopped off my hair - I just cut off 2-3 inches and my hairdresser added a lot of layers to it, plus a fresh color, of course. I went darker, almost a full black, as far as the color goes. I wore this outfit on the first week of September, definitely when it was cool enough to wear sweaters because the last 10 days or so, the weather has been swimsuit-ready, tank tops, shorts and sundresses all the way. And yes, I am rocking Light Pastel Colors for early Fall, why not?!

I purchased this sweater in early Summer at Loft. It has a tulip open back and the color is between a mint and a sage green. It is light enough to wear all year long but especially for Spring, Summer nights and Autumn. Since it is still very early into Fall, I decided to wear the sweater with other pastels, such as my off-white/ivory skirt and my new pearl+crystal slip-on sneakers I recently bought at Target. My Mint Teardrop Crystal Earrings (from a year ago from Target) also matched the sweater and outfit quite well and dressed it up, a little. But speaking of this sweater which I love, Loft always has the best sweaters. Their Fall collection sweaters are to die for and a lot of them have fun backs like mine. As a matter of fact I ordered a few sweaters today since they have their "New and Now" 40% off sale going. On top of that, here is a code for you ladies - "INSIDER845" - that Loft e-mailed me, which you can add to your purchased of $100 or more in order to get an additional $25 off. But hurry because this sale and this code expires tomorrow night Sunday September 24th. Below on the widget I have listed my top 12 sweaters I am currently eyeing at Loft and I already picked up a few of these.

I have had this Lacy Off-White Crochet Lace Skirt in my closet since 3 summers ago and it from H+M. I would shop H+M a lot when I was living in Europe. They are a sister brand to Zara but more affordable. H+M always has the latest trends and many styles from everyday casual stay-at-home mom pieces to work-chic, tailored pieces. I love that this skirt is short but not quite a mini and just like the sweater, it can work for all seasons. Speaking of pretty skirts, once again LOFT is killing it this season in the skirt department. I actually own a lot of Loft skirts already. On the widget below you will find some of my favorite skirts from their "New and Now" sale that ends this Sunday. Gosh, if money grew on trees...

As you can see, black, maroon, deep burgundy, gray and navy are HUGE colors for Fall.

Millennial pink is the most worn and most popular color of this decade. Also known as dusty pink, baby pink, rose quartz or blush, this color is not going away anytime soon and I can see why - it is practically a neutral and looks great on everyone, despite the skin of their color, age, size, etc. I also think it is a great color for ALL seasons. It is a big color on clothes of course, but also accessories. I especially love it in bags and shoes. This year alone I have added 3 pairs of millennial pink sneakers to my closet, including this gorgeous pair which are a steal for about 28 bucks. These are Slip-On Sneakers in a satin material with encrusted crystals and pearls. Pearls on clothes and accessories are all the rage for Fall and Winter 2017. My gorgeous new slip-on sneakers are from the Mossimo line at Target and unfortunately I heard that Target will discontinue this line which sucks because I think they have cute things. Mossimo is a line for women (not juniors) but unlike the Merona line at Target (which will also be discontinued and replaced by "A New Day") has more youthful, on trend types of clothes so I am sad to see this line phase out soon. But pick up these shoes while you can. For reference they run true to size and I am wearing my regular size 6.5.

P.S. This just in: I received an insider e-mail that the "New + Now" 40% OFF Loft Sale was extended at least until Monday September 25th which is also the last day you can use Loft Cash ($25 each 50 bucks you spend), if you have any. That will make your purchases a steal! Run, do not walk to the nearest Loft, they have some gorgeous things right now.
