Coffee Talk + What I’ve Worn On Sale
Greetings to you on this fine Sunday morning… or afternoon or evening! I’m always writing these posts at the crack of dawn, so it always seems appropriate to say “good morning,” but I realize not everyone is going to read it right away.
Any-who. I hope everyone is having a good weekend. Ours has been pretty quiet, which is nice. We ended up hanging out at home and going to bed early both nights — well, that’s not entirely true. The girls each had plans Friday night, so Paul and I took turns playing Uber Driver, but other than that, we were just here.
We went to the mall for a few hours yesterday to kill some time, and that was productive — at least for Paul and the 16-year-old. They each found a few things they needed. Becca and I just window-shopped, but she got an Auntie Anne’s pretzel so she was happy.
I was planning to get new eyeglasses because I have a new script, but the optical shop I wanted to use was busy, so we’ll have to go back during the week. I forget how different it is to shop on a Saturday! I almost always shop on weekdays.
We stopped into the new True Food Kitchen for lunch before hitting the mall, and that was really good. It was a totally spontaneous decision. We were planning to go to Shake Shack, which is next door, but then we saw the True Food. I’d never heard of it, but it looked intriguing so I googled it and determined it would be a much better choice!
We all enjoyed it, but it’s definitely a little different. If you haven’t heard of it, look it up. It’s pretty cool for those who are into real food and local, seasonal cuisine.
I had the fish tacos and a glass of Veltliner. The tacos look a little plain because they were missing the avocado salsa, but they were still tasty. (I’m allergic to avocado. #sadbuttrue)
So anyway, beyond that, our weekend hasn’t been particularly notable, but I did want to tell you about a few things that just went on sale.
I usually try to keep the business out of my Sunday posts, but the Loft sale ends tonight, and I don’t want you to miss it because at some point yesterday afternoon, Loft decided to put a bunch of their jeans and sweaters on sale for $35!
Here they are again, along with my descriptions, in case you missed yesterday’s post.
LOFT Boyfriend Cardigan in Golden Grass // For my newer followers, one of my most popular outfits of all time was this one, featuring a mustard yellow boyfriend sweater with tortoiseshell buttons from Loft. When I saw this sweater at Loft last week, I ordered it right away so I could recreate the look. It also comes in navy, grey, and pink; and it’s lightweight and perfect for springtime.
For size reference, I have the small. This sweater is currently on sale for $35, no code needed.
LOFT Destructed Straight Leg Jeans in Authentic Mid Indigo Wash // I actually rather like these, for a straight cropped style. I think I styled a pair last year, actually. They’re soft and comfortable, and for the price, the wash is pretty good, although I don’t care for that frayed hem.
For size reference, I’m in the 28/6 and they feel like they could get baggy. I don’t know if I could zip up the 27/4 or not, but it may be worth a try. Definitely size down if in between. These jeans are currently on sale for $35, no code needed.
LOFT Striped Turtleneck Poncho Sweater // This is a cute poncho option for those of us who are cold natured and like to be cozy. There are no armholes, but it stays in place well despite that. It’s a nice, soft knit, and it’s TTS.
For reference, I’m wearing the XS/S. This poncho is 30% off, bringing it down to $62.65 in cart.
They also have a bunch of dresses and skirts marked $49.50, and that includes the mock neck dress I shared yesterday.
LOFT Melange Mock Neck Dress // How fun is this dress? I expected to hate it, but I kind of like it. It would probably look better with tights, as shown on the model… at least until I apply some self tanner! Anyway, it fits well, doesn’t cling, and I think it would make a nice work wear piece.
Wearing a small, for reference. This dress is on sale for $49.50, no code needed.
And finally, Bloomingdale’s is running a sale that includes a lot of premium denim as well as this chunky ivory sweater: Take 25% off when you shop with a Bloomingdale’s Credit Card or take 20% off no matter how you pay on a large selection of regular price items with code LOVE. Look for styles marked “PROMOTION ELIGIBLE WITH CODE: LOVE”.
Plus Loyallists get a $25 Reward Card (5,000 Power Points) for every $125 you spend on select regular price items labeled “LOYALLIST POWER POINTS”.
AQUA Boatneck Sweater // I love the loose, open weave; the contrast stitching at neck, cuffs, and hem; and the boxy but drapey fit. I know not everyone likes the shorter styles, but they work well on my short-waisted figure. Also, the raglan sleeves are flattering. I love the color too — they call it Pearl Essence, and that is exactly how it looks. It’s beyond a basic off-white sweater somehow. I can see wearing this well into springtime.
I’m wearing a small, for reference. This sweater is 50% off, no code needed.
AG Legging Ankle Jeans with Raw Hem in 7 Years Break // Probably my most-worn jeans, after the similar ripped pair I have that were discontinued. These are going on three years old, and I still wear them a couple times a week. They’re such a good wash — the perfect in between that you can dress up or down. It’s light enough to provide some contrast against black or navy, but dark enough to pair with lighter colors too.
For reference, I have these jeans in my usual AG size 28; size down if in between. Use code LOVE to get 20% off (25% off if you use a Bloomingdale’s credit card.)
AG Farrah Ankle Skinny Jeans in 4 Years Deep Willow // If you prefer a higher rise and a sewn hem, these have a similar wash and fit, and they’re 30% off no matter how you pay, no code needed.
AG Angel Bootcut Jeans in Audacious // These are the same fit as the lightwash AG flares I shared yesterday, but they’re a nice even dark wash, and they’re on sale! Plus the original price is lower. For some reason, those lighter washes seem to cost more.
Okay, I think that’s all I’ve got. The Loft sale is probably the best thing going this weekend, but if you’re willing to poke around, the Bloomies sale could prove worthwhile. I didn’t see many handbags included in the sale, but there are some good shoes. These Sam Edelman wedge slides caught my eye — I wonder if they’re walkable.
And these Marc Fisher wedge sandals are fun. They’re similar to the Adalyn that’s been trending for the past few years. These darker colors are on sale, but Bloomies doesn’t seem to have the lighter colors that Nordstrom does.
There are some flat sandals too, and sneakers… you just have to know what you’re looking for.
Well, I’m off to get my run in before church. Have a great day!
