ROMPERS: THE NEVER-ENDING SUMMER TREND

Details: LOFT Tassled Off-the-Shoulder Romper, here | Rockport Cobb Hill Tropez High Vamp, here  |

Rompers are a girl’s best friend once the warm weather rolls around. They’re undeniably comfortable and you don’t have to worry about a summer breeze exposing you or being conscious of how you sit. And we all know that in addition to the romper trend, the off-the-shoulder trend is just as popular right now. Like I said last year: “shoulders are the new cleavage”, and it remains to be true this year too. OFTS tops share just enough skin to be sexy while allowing you to remain modest and classy. Although I’m known for going for bold colors and patterns when it comes to rompers, I love that this one is black and can be easily dressed up or down. Lately, I’ve been on an earring kick and have been popping in some color that way. However, if casual is more your speed, throw on your favorite pair of flip flops and stroll on down to the beach–the options are endless. So, does anyone need more reason to go out and get your romper on? I didn’t think so.

COLORFUL CHINOS IT IS

Details: LOFT swing jacket/blazer, similar here | LOFT cropped skinny chinos, here |

My 5-year reunion was this weekend and I’m currently recovering from sleepless nights and belly aching laughs. It was so nice to return to campus and live the dorm life one more time. The weather held up and we were able to bask in the sun while drinking beers and playing games #collegelife. I’m bummed that the rain returns this week, but I’ve learned to live for the weekend. Also, I picked up some QuickTan to get me through these sunless days. It’s the best spray tan in a bottle and it’s what I used all through college so it only felt appropriate to grab some this weekend. If I can’t don my denim cutoffs, I decided to resort to fun colored cropped chino pants and am combatting the chill with this swing jacket/blazer. It’s super lightweight and easy to style with a variety of colors. I’m eagerly waiting to wear bathing suits and flip flops, but until then I’ll be wearing my colorful cropped chinos.

THE HEAT MADE ME DO IT

Details: LOFT Pleated Duet Dress, here | DSW two-toned sandals, similar here |

I recently went on a shopping binge at LOFT and came across this flowy pleated dress. The heat made me do it! It was so hot last week, and I was in desperate need of cute dresses and lightweight tops to keep me from getting heat stroke. It was basically prescribed by my doctor. It’s too late now anyway, the damage is done and I have some new summer clothes to show for it. Lately, the LOFT has been surprising me. I used to never think twice about walking in there because everything always seemed to be boxy and ill-fitting. I don’t know what they’ve been doing lately, but keep it! Not only do have they offer on-trend styles but the fit seems to be much more accurate. Plus, they have an awesome petite section so I’m able to pull off a mid-length dress like this because they offer it in petite–score! I’ve noticed lately, in my old age that the quality of your clothing means more than quantity, but having a lot of quality clothes is always better–I can’t help myself! I wish that we were experiencing that unseasonable heat this week, so I can rock this dress. It’s one that I would wear two days in a row–it’s that good! So, the lesson of the day: if you haven’t been into LOFT in a while, or ever because you thought it was outdated or ill-fitting, go on and stop in; I guarantee that you’ll find something you just have to have.
