Hello, friends. Happy Friday! Today I’ve got a couple of variations on an outfit that I think is really cute and perfect for spring. Best of all, LOFT is running a 30% off sale this weekend (40% off with a LOVELOFT card) so both the top and jeans are on sale. Use code LOVEMOM at checkout.
I’ve been really impressed with these frayed hem crop jeans. With the current sale, they are less than $50, and they have a very flattering fit. Plus they’re right on trend with the light wash denim and frayed crop hem.
They aren’t as soft as the premium brands I typically recommend, but I hear they do soften up some with wear, and they didn’t bag out after I wore them for several hours. They run true to size. I have the 28, and I usually wear size 6 in LOFT pants.
They even have a flattering rear view, which is hard to find in jeans at this price point. They’re nice and thick, which helps them not show through any jiggly parts, ifyouknowwhatImean…
This top is also from LOFT. I got a ton of compliments the day I wore this. It really is a pretty print. For size reference, I have a small in the top, and it is plenty big.
I generally prefer more fitted styles that create more definition in the waist area, but sometimes it’s nice to wear something loose and flowy and not have to worry about any lumps and bumps showing through.
Yikes, first jiggly parts and now lumps and bumps… such pretty talk! But that’s the way it is for most of us, I’m sure. Just keeping it real.
Okay, so let’s discuss these sandals. These are Lucky Brand, and I think they are so cute. I really like this light brown with the light wash bluejeans. The studs and fringe trim details are pretty, and they’re easy to walk in. I will say, they tend to come untied, so you have to be willing to put up with that, but they’re good for when you won’t be doing a ton of walking.
I got mine when they were on sale a few weeks back. At $79, they’re not a bad price for leather sandals, but if you want a pair, I would recommend holding off and waiting for their next sale. (Lucky Brand does have an extra 50% off sale styles this weekend, if you want to take a look. There are some cute pieces, including some sandals, and the markdowns are significant.
These shoes are actually very comfortable and easy to walk in. Because of the platform sole, they give you a lot of added height without a dramatic heel drop, which is always nice.
They come in other colors too, but I think this blush is so pretty. It coordinates nicely with my Kate Spade hobo in the Rose Cloud. A nice budget-friendly option is this Sole Society tote in the Latte.
This time I’m showing the top with a front-tuck so you can see another option.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I can’t wait for this front tuck trend to fizzle out. I really think it looks awkward from any angle but directly front-on. As you can see here, from the side the blouse balloons out in a funny way and adds visual weight.
I actually think this top adds some visual weight tucked and untucked. A good way to create a more flattering silhouette with a flowy blouse like this is to top it off with a structured jacket.
I actually wore a variation of this outfit earlier this week to a blogging event with my white denim jacket on top. Suddenly this outfit has a lot more structure, and I feel like it is more flattering. Plus the jacket adds another element of interest to the entire outfit.
I also added a necklace for this look. It is barely noticeable against the busy patterned blouse, but I do think that it makes a nice addition to the outfit.
Overall, I think this top and the jeans are both great purchases at a great price point. There is black trim in this top so I can also see it paired with black jeans and a blue jean jacket for a different look. I also plan to pair it with my light pink jeans sometime soon! I love it when a top has so many options.
