As of today, I am a proud owner of a Loft Store credit card (this is not good news to my bank account) but it’s fabulous news to my closet which is why I happily skipped to the Loft Spring 2011 press preview and Cocktail party (I had to give my new card a preview of what will surely be in my closet next season).
If there was one phrase to describe the Loft’s Spring 2011 collection (well, it’s actually a song), it’d be Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry Be Happy”. Loft promises a New Mood and a New Movement for Spring 2011, a collection featuring vibrant colors, bold and graphic prints, exciting colors and patterns. And that it did. Below are a few of my favorites – several of the pieces had a nautical theme (or maybe those are the ones that stood out to me). For example, I am in love with the Lilac and Khaki Nautical Striped Tee Shirt Blouse in the first photo; I love Loft’s new take on leopard print with as seen in the Scattered Leopard Print Dress under the Khaki Anorak in the second photo.
In continuing my Nautical obsession, I had to showcase this Cropped Sweater Jacket over the Stripe Knit Dress shown in the third photo and the super comfy Three Quarter Sleeve Boat Neck Sweater. I also love the added details of the Braided Belt with Striped Bow with the Twill Shorts. Of course the nautical looks were not my only favorites, as a lover of color, I was quite enamored with the Coral print looks – The beautiful Coral Ruffled V-Neck Tank, the adorable Floral Print Shorts and Tiered Ruffled Windbreaker
And of course I must showcase the accessories (side note: my first Loft purchase was a Loft necklace), I’ve always love Loft’s mix of fabric and metal in their necklaces, it really highlights the soft side and hard edge of my personalities
the gorgeous bold prints and vibrant colorful scarves, a perfect touch to bring a fun statement to any outfit
and of course shoes…shoes speak for themselves – loving the Peep Toe and Short Cage Boots below
