check out their leopard calf hair belt HERE.
I’m telling you, it will add the perfect somethin’ somethin’ to 98% of your outfits.
IF YOU DON’T HAVE A LEOPARD BELT, GET THIS BELT NOWWWWWWW!
Sorry to scream, but I promise the situation calls for it!!!
Let’s all just take a moment.
Even if you don’t need a moment, I do.
So please, give me a moment.
Loft decided that they wanted a handful of bloggers to promote their fall line,
and they asked ME to participate!
And then I found out that I got to pick out 5 items to have sent to me!
I picked a blouse, a pair of skinny jeans, a necklace, a coat, and a pair of booties.
It wasn’t easy, because LOFT does Fall soooooooo well (they always have) and there were lots and lots of lovely things that caught my eye.
I mean, I’ve been shopping at LOFT for about 15 years now, and I always find myself exceptionally fond of their fall stuff. You know what else they do crazy well? HOLIDAY!
They really hit it out of the park every year with their holiday dresses, fancy tops, and blingy jewelry!
And you know what else they do SUPER well? Business Casual!
Last year I did a “WORK IT” post (find it HERE) where I highlighted office wear only from LOFT! Maybe I should do that again in November?
But I digress.
Back to Fall.
Anyway, I wanted to create a head to toe look with all LOFT items, and it’s a perfect
fall look ifidosaysomyself.
floral vine tie neck blouse c/o LOFT HERE (mixed reviews online, but I love it!) / skinny zippered moto jeans c/o LOFT HERE / short mixed multi-strand necklace c/o LOFT HERE / snow leopard car coat c/o LOFT HERE/ cozy cuffed booties c/o LOFT HERE
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the top and a 27 in the jeans.
I mean, really.
The whole outfit is extra cute right?
I absolutely love the colors in the shirt (the olive with navy, cream, and a dusty rose), the zipper detail on the jeans is so nice, and the cuffed booties are to die for.
I really liked the overall look. And although super cute with jeans, I think this top would pair so well with suit pants or a pencil skirt for the office.
Here’s a close up of the booties.
I didn’t love the booties with these particular jeans (the jeans were a little long for me to tuck neatly into the bootie), but I tried them with a pair of my skinny ankle jeans and they were perfect! They tucked right in!
And fyi: the lining isn’t throughout the boot, it’s really just for show, but it’s a really cute show! 🙂
I will be wearing these A LOT.
They are a perfect cognac color.
I’m a 6 or a 6 1/2 depending on the shoe (more often a 6 1/2), but I’m a 6 in these.
And let’s not forget the coat I picked out.
Because OH SWEET MERCY THE COAT.
The pictures really don’t do it justice.
You’re going to have to take my word for it.
IT. IS. FABULOUS.
It is soft and cozy and perfect.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the coat.
In fact, I was so excited about it that I showed it to you last week with leggings and a tee.
And just because I sometimes feel like a post isn’t complete without one…
Here’s a Get The Look for Yourself Collage!

So, that’s my head to toe fall look, all from LOFT!
But in addition to what I highlighted above, there’s lots of other pieces there right now that are also great staples that you might want to consider adding to your closet.
Here’s another perfectly me fall look I put together!
The jewelry in this next look is part of the LOFT’s Wear to Care program where they donate 70% of the purchase price to breast cancer research!

A totally simple and cute fall look!
I would like to end this post with a letter to the powers at be at LOFT:
I want to make sure you know that you can call me anytime.
Next month, next week, tomorrow, later today, whenever.
p.s. Remember that I really love your Holiday line.
Here are some of my favorite pants from Loft right now:
(the Marissa has always been my favorite cut for my body type)
And here are some tops, sweaters, jackets, and dresses:
Thanks again to LOFT for sponsoring this post!
OH….AND IF YOU DIDN’T SEE YESTERDAY’S POST….
make sure you click HERE to see my BIKER CHIC look!
Wondering if you got the cords in the regular or the petite? Thanks!
Hi Brooke! They are regular! The petite pants at LOFT are typically too short for me in the crotchal region :), while their petite dresses and skirts are perfect for me!
Thanks, I've found that to be true, too!
Ugh! This post is evil!! I am DYING for those booties but I am on a no buy for the rest of this month as we are going to Hawaii next month. Fingers crossed that they are still around for Black Friday (the one advantage of having big feet!!)
That being said, I finally caved and got my first blardigan last week. I may or may not have accosted my UPS driver on my driveway and tried it on right then and there….
Casey Ferri says
I totally agree on the coatigan – looked at it in the store, but was unimpressed. I don't think it would do a thing for me.
I stopped by last night, in the driving rain of a Nor'easter, but it was WELL WORTH it! And honestly, I think I might go back today! I got the asymetrical zip sweater/jacket, cream skinnys, a burgandy cut-out top and two tanks for $76! OMG!
Mix and Match Mama says
THAT COAT! Why don't I have THAT COAT?????!!! Woohoo friend!!
I love the textural tunic sweater! Got it last week. Great style and I love the fact that it covers my butt. Ordered another color last night.
I got the coatigan too. Here's my review: it is nothing like the blardigan. Thicker, more structural and definitely not as soft. I like it and I think it will be great to wear on those days you don't quite need a warm jacket (pretty often here in the South). But if anyone is expecting it to be a cheaper blardigan, they will be disappointed.
Agree with everything you said Kate!

Love Love Love that Coat!!!

I love this blog so much! I have been reading your blog for a while now and I have wanted a blardigan since your very first post about it. But I always felt guilty spending the money for it. Last October my dear friend, Barbara was diagnosed with breast cancer and by December she was Home with Jesus. I miss her every single day. I miss her hugs. Barbara's birthday is Saturday so I bought myself a blardigan and it arrived yesterday but I am waiting to open on Saturday. And every time I wear it, it will be like Barbara is hugging me. It'll be my Barbara Blardigan. I know it probably sounds weird but I think it'll be comforting especially on those days when I am just really missing her. Thank you for all the work you put into this blog. It's a joy to read and a breath of fresh air. Thank you!
Oh my goodness. I don't know your name, but I want to give you a big ol' hug after reading this. It doesn't sound weird at all, it sounds very very sweet. I'm so sorry about your friend.
Little Pink Rose says
Thank you so much. My name is Colleen ?. Love what you do!
I wish I would have read your picks last night when I placed my order! I ordered the cords in darkest cranberry, any suggestions on what to wear with that color? Thanks Sheaffer!
Hi Sarah! I would think black, olive green, dark brown, cream…..I think all would look good with cranberry!!!
I asked Shay but I'll ask you too… Can you show some outfit combos with leopard booties???
Hi there! I actually don't have any leopard booties! I love them, and I have 2 different pairs of leopard flats, but no booties yet. Wear them with anything and everything, they are a neutral!!!!!
I have been following your blog for a while now and have ordered some of the items that you have recommended from Nordstrom's. I have loved everything I have ordered from there. I had never ordered from Loft before but based on your recommendations, I just ordered 2 cardigans and the tee. So tell Loft that having you do your reviews was a success. They have a brand new customer.
Thanks so much for this comment! Do you hear that LOFT?!? You need to keep contacting me!!!! 🙂
I seriously am so glad I stumbled upon your blog somehow. I absolutely love seeing how you put outfits together and it gives me encouragement to try thinking outside the box when it comes to dressing up. Especially for school as a teacher!! I so do not have any more room in my closet but could totally see some of the stuff in the 50% off sale ending up in it.
Thanks so much for the post! I wore my must have hue wide band leggings you recommended and got 3 tunics to wear with them from the Loft sale and a tank top. Only spent 100.00 bucks which is a bargain considering one tunic alone was 89.00 presale. You rock..!
Traci R says
Shaeffer- LOVE your blog..so much that I almost had to break up with you several times due to overspending! HA! I just ordered the waterfall cardigan and beautiful t. Can't wait to get them. Thanks for all you do! Just wondering if you've ever done a post on favorite pajamas?
Are the jeans in the first four sold out?? What brand are they?
Yep, they are sold out. They are my MUST HAVE jeans from Nordstrom. They are Vigoss. Sorry I'm not more help!
I love that brand and am new to your blog! And am in love!!!:) thanks for responding!
What jeans are you wearing?? Are they sold out? They look like a different fit than the link.
Hi Natalie! They are sold out which is why the link says "similar". The cut I'm wearing are the Thompson Tomboy. There are some Thompson Tomboys still available, but they are a little bit different too. Sorry!

I bought the light sesame melange sweater shown above. I'm wondering if your sweater also sheds balls of fabric all over itself…
