The Sunday Showcase April 2019 - Our Spring Picks from Loft.

A full week of April is gone and here we are on a Sunday (on the 7th of April). My lovely friends CHRISSY from Granola and Grace and KELLYANN from This Blonde's Shopping Bag as well as myself, are back for our monthly "The Sunday Showcase" Linkup and we are doing something different today. We are all showing you some of our recent Spring picks and purchases from Loft which is one of our favorite stores/brands. I smiled when I saw Kellyann's jumpsuit because it has polka dots and is in a wide-legged style, just like my Palazzo Pants by Loft. And I love, love Chrissy's beautiful, elegant, office-ready outfit. I actually purchased those pants in lavender and I am loving the emerald green too - NEED! For more details and other pieces they tried on and loved, make sure to check out their blog posts, today. I love their little try-on session diaries.

POLKA  DOT  PALAZZO  PANT  AND  CHAMBRAY  WRAP  TOP.
Two of my recent buys/picks from Loft that I wore together in this recent Spring outfit (it was in the 60s out) are the Polka Dot Palazzo Pant and the Chambray Wrap Top. The Polka Dot Palazzo Pant (say that 5 times in a row, fast lol) is in the IN style of the season as Loft as well as many other stores have a lot of palazzo pants this Spring, full-length ones or cropped like mine. Loft calls them the fluid pant and I agree they are indeed fluid, flowy and very elegant. My particular pair is a best-seller and I scored mine for such a steal! Mine are my usual Loft size which is a Small (or a 4) but I think the XS would have possibly worked a lot better, especially as I am hoping to loose 7-10 lbs this Spring/Summer. Honestly the XS would have fit much better, now. I'd suggest you size down on these pants, especially if you are in between sizes. =) Here is Kellyann's version of the jumpsuit which has a drawstring waist, pockets and feminine flutter sleeves. I love it! I also purchased the drawstring version of the fluid pants in red floral - they will be perfect for warm months. But I love this pair in black with a yellow floral print. Yellow is huge this Spring and Summer. Not to be overshadowed by the pants, but my Chambray Wrap Top with the puffer sleeves is gorgeous too. This chambray wrap blouse is also a best-seller and Loft calls the color "Coldwater Chambray". For reference I am wearing the small but since I am booby lol I do have a light heather grey camisole underneath it. And if you plan to wear it to work I do suggest a cami underneath and also pin it with a brooch like I did here. Because of its style and the peplum hem, this pretty top would work so well for expectant moms and breast-feeding mamas, too. Loft has the chambray dress version of this top, also in a wrap style and calls the color "Noble Blue Chambray". I own the dress too and both pieces are in a very soft and sturdy chambray, but the color is almost identical I'd say. I paired my Black+White Polka Dotted Fluid Pants with the Romantic Chambray Wrap Top and wore my Tasseled Leopard Loafers creating a fun, modern, trendy and Spring work-to-weekend look. Don't you think?! I will probably pair these pieces again, but with heels. I see a pair of colorful pumps going so well with them.


THE  ACCESSORIES.
This outfit - besides the clothes I wore - is all about the accessories. Love how I chose to accessorize it. Of course you cannot miss my giant tortoise trendy sunglasses but let's focus on the gorgeous bow, statement earrings and brooch for a little. I love bows for my hair. I also smile when Vivian and I choose her bows to wear every day with her outfits. This Baby Blue+White Silky Seersucker bow is by Francesca's  and they had the last two left which is perfect because for their BOGO 50% I purchased them both and will style them this month together with Vivian, for Easter. Here is my identical bow and I also love this similar blue chambray bow by Francesca's which I own in the light grey and the light lilac. They are both linked on the bottom of this post. I love the big clasp behind these large bows, it won't fall off because it clips on the other side. That Gold-Tone Pretzel Brooch is by Talbots which always has such pretty, unique and preppy pieces including brooches and all their jewelry. It was on clearance after the holidays. I love that it's a pretzel. Tabots currently has some gorgeous brooches and I have linked my favorites on the widget below. Last but not least, I am wearing these Blue+Pink Marled Tassel Statement Earrings by Baublebar which you also saw this week on my Thursday Moda post and they looked just as good with that bright mustard sweater. My identical earrings can no longer be found online but I found similar ones both from BaubleBar and other retailers (linked in the widget below).




Our one-year anniversary Sunday Showcase last month, had a great turnover. That's thanks a lot to our dear friend Shelbee too as our very devoted co-host. My favorite two outfits from last month's Sunday Showcase belong to Johanna sharing an Edgy, Wintery Monochromatic Olive Look - I loved her fur leopard coat, liquid leggings and combat laceup boots. As well as Lisa who did a try-on session for Spring featuring a lot of very versatile, modern denim looks and I happened to love the black skinny jeans paired with the sturdy blue denim button-down, all looking gorgeous with the white pumps! Stop by Kellyann's and Chrissy's to see each of their two featured favorites and what they tried on at Loft.
