Happy Friday Everyone! We made it! I wanted to jump on here real quick and show you this gorgeous dress I picked up from loft a couple of weeks ago.
If you have been following my blogging journey you probably know that I am a bit obsessed with Loft. I saw this dress in the window of our local store a few weeks ago and I was hooked! I was so discouraged at first because it was almost sold out and I could only find one not on the mannequin.
Have you ever been shopping when you find something you just can’t live without but there is only one left?! It is so easy to convince yourself that it fits, even when it doesn’t or when it could look better. That was what I ran into with this dress. After pacing the store for 10-15 minutes, I had convinced myself I would deal with it being a little big. (Note: I am typically a medium in loft dresses, so this runs a little big under the arms).
After talking to the one of the Loft employees, she convinced me that I really should be wearing the small. I nervously asked if she would mind taking the one of the display to look at the size. I got so lucky, it turned out to be a small! I seriously have not taken this dress of since.
It is perfect for those summer date nights or just a day out and about. It is very light weight and with it being a “swing” dress it is breathable even in this intense Oklahoma heat. The pom pom details at the top were so fun and playful and I loved the color and pattern! I also am a sucker for necklines like this one. I can definitely see this dress taking me into early or late September as long as our weather stays warm. Just throw on a jean jacket or a sweater and it even is office appropriate.
