THE DRESSING ◽ TIPS
Say Yes to Clothes!
by Marcy Lytle
The Loft - This store has had some incredible deals. Honestly, this isn’t one of my favorite stores. But I found some really cute spring tops (above) on sale 50% off and then there was a code for another 30% off as well! Tops with pretty sleeves and a flowy bodice are often safe bets, when shopping on line. Look at the fabric, so you’ll know how they wash, as well. And read reviews! (the three tops)
Love this puffed sleeve and floral print, so popular this spring.
I was sharing with a friend last month how I’d ordered on line a few spring tops, and her question was, “Where are you going to wear them?” So true, it’s been a different way of life lately, as we stay home and go very few places. I was amused by how many jokes flooded Facebook about staying in pajamas all day. I decided to ask my friends on Facebook if they truly stayed in pajamas all day while staying home during crisis. I’d say almost every one of them said no, that they eventually got dressed.
So…I too got dressed. I enjoy getting dressed, even if I’m working at home or going out, or doing nothing. And I still love to shop, although it’s been on line as of late.
Here are a few places I found some fun things on line, should you still be looking…
Old Navy - I ordered this midi length skirt (which comes in several colors). It has elastic in the waist, cute pockets, and I’m excited to wear it. Ordering on line can be tricky, so skirts are often safe – if they’re not fitted and they have elastic.
Did you know the midi length is back?
This belt is that woven style, a classic. I love the brown leather for summer.
Ann Taylor Factory is another store I hadn’t shopped at that often, only browsed a few times. But they too had some really cute tops for spring! I have plenty of jeans, capris and skirts, so I opted for more on the top! Look at the sleeves on the tee above!
Bright colors appeal to me, so this pretty gold/yellow hue reminds me of sunflowers! This top is from The Loft Outlet.
How can we ever have enough white tops?
They go with everything, and they lose their whiteness so quickly, so I snapped this one up quickly.
Love the length of the sleeves and the top itself. From The Loft Outlet.
The bags, jewelry, and sometimes the clothes are so unique and fun at World Market. Often, they run sales, and their inventory is always interesting. I like interesting! Check out this cute bag for spring..
Also from World Market...
How about this necklace?
The angel tee – the sleeve length – in black – a favorite classic and staple even in spring/summer! Also from Ann Taylor Factory.
This golden tote might be my favorite of all! It's from Old Navy and is super roomy and beautiful. I love it!
What have you ordered on line, or will you? Will you go back to shopping in stores in person, or not? I hope we get to do both!
