Happy Friday, y’all!
I’ve got a Shopping with Sheaffer post today, and I’m pumped!
These kinds of posts are some of my favorite kinds to do. They take a good bit of time (from sourcing items, to placing orders, to unpacking boxes, styling outfits, creating links, writing reviews, etc). But still, they are a favorite! My goal is always to be a great resource for all of you, and by sharing several retailers and lots of different pieces, I think these posts help make fashion accessible and shopping easy and fun.
Today I’m highlighting pieces from Loft ( it’s been a minute!), Nordstrom, J Crew, Social Threads, Our Place, Colleen Rothschild, and Amazon. I think most of you will be sure to find at least 1 item you would like to add to your closet in today’s post.
We are kicking things off with Loft, and I’m so excited. I haven’t found anything I’ve loved at Loft in quite awhile, but today it seems that my Loft dry spell is over.
I’m FLIPPING OUT about this first blouse.
I love it.
It’s soooooooooooo good.
I’m obsessed. AND it’s 40% OFF right now!
It’s called “strawberry pink”, which I think makes it sound like a super summery shirt… but I actually think the colors are really beautiful for fall. The background is a really pretty deep pink, and then the dahlia design has different grey/blues, wine, cream and white, and even a little bit of mustard as an accent. I LOVE THE COLORS. You can see below that it definitely works in the summer.
(Use the code STMT10 for 10% OFF the denim shorts! They were definitely my most worn shorts this summer. I’m wearing my regular size 27, but most size down because of the extreme stretch.)
But look at it now styled for fall!
It’s got great feminine details like the stand up ruffle on the shoulder (that’s not too aggressive), the elastic hem on the sleeve, and the tiny little buttons and tiny gathered neckline. THIS TOP IS FABULOUS. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
And check it out! This woven tote is the one I featured in a lot of the outfit planning collages I did a couple of weeks ago. It’s expensive, but dang it’s gorgeous. So many of you loved it, but wanted me to find a dupe. I’ve looked high and low for a dupe, but I haven’t found anything like it yet. It’s real leather, this stunning neutral color, and the basket weave is just so pretty. Also, it’s a great medium size! I don’t like totes that are humongous, but I definitely want to be able to pack everything I need into it.
This dress is sooooo me. It has a flouncy and flutter hem and it’s not body conscious at all. It boasts a split neck with ties, long sleeves with puff shoulders and button cuffs. The peacock pattern is totally whimsical, and fall colors abound with blue, rose, burgundy, mustard, brown, and cream. For size reference, I’m wearing the petite medium. I often wear a petite in dresses. I’m only 5’4″, and I like my dresses short. 😉 #hoochie And great news! It’s 25% OFF right now!
And here I wanted to show it styled with two different bags. I think it looks awesome paired with the red tote!
Red is one of my favorite colors to wear, so I immediately put this blouse in my cart. I have very little space from my boobs up to my neck, so this blouse is actually too low on me and I won’t be keeping it. But I love everything else about it, and I know some of y’all will too! It has a nice relaxed fit and some smocking detail up top. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium. This one is also currently 25% OFF.
Other LOFT items that caught my eye just a couple of days ago when they rolled out some new items….
tiered midi dress ON SALE
paisley balloon sleeve top ON SALE
floral drop sleeve sweater ON SALE
Nordstrom never lets me down, and I have some great items to feature today! I actually had more that arrived that I’m loving, but I ran out of time taking pics, so I’ll feature more new finds next week.
The material on this paisley dress might look familiar because it’s the same material as a blouse I featured in tons of the outfit planning collages (which you’ll see in just a minute). I actually really like this dress, but it is quite short. #justthewayilikeit 😉 If you are over 5’5″, I’m guessing it will be too short on you. The colors and the pattern are both stunning, and there’s a little metallic thread running through it. I normally wouldn’t like a metallic element like this, but I actually think its subtle and pretty. It’s lightweight, lined, and has voluminous sleeves. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
And just because…
This is just so you can focus on that sweet little fella in the background.
So this is the blouse I was talking about!
This blouse is FABULOUS. I love it so much. Now full disclosure, the reviews on it aren’t good, but I don’t care! I think it’s awesome! The issues that the reviewers have with the blouse aren’t issues for me (I love the colors and there’s no bunching on my shirt), so I’m just a big ol’ fan. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.

And here it is with the woven tote.
The fringe teardrop earrings are stunning. They are eye-catching, large, and lightweight. They are felt on the back, so I’m a little worried that they might twist when being worn and show the back, but I’m going to give them a try because I love them so much.
This tee is one I already own in black. It’s a great tee and it launders perfectly. It’s super comfy and soft, and it has 4 way stretch and moisture wicking technology. It’s very roomy with a relaxed fit all over and drop shoulders. It also has UPF 30+ sun protection! I love this marsala color, but it also comes in white, black, and heathered grey. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
Let’s talk about the running shorts. I LOVE THEM. They are very comfy and really flattering, and I love how lightweight they are. But I’m going to be honest, they’re never going to get to live up to their full potential because the most activity they will ever see is a brisk walk. I wear a small in the MUST HAVE joggers, but I didn’t want these too tight or too short so I ordered a medium. I’m glad I did because I’m in love with the fit.
I’ve shown this to you before, but I’m showing it again because I cannot stop wearing it. I wore it to church on Sunday with a denim jacket, I wore it running errands earlier in the week, and the week before that I wore it to lunch. So yeah, I wore it 3x in 2 days.
This batik dress is super special. The colors and the pattern are so unique (I’ve always loved pink and red together), and the fit is fabulous. The top is smocked and super stretchy, the spaghetti straps are adjustable, and it has pockets! I’m not wearing a bra in this picture, but when wearing it out, I will definitely throw on the very best strapless in the entire world.
Do you remember this outfit planning collage?
The dress is simple, classic, flattering, and comfy as all get out. Featuring a shirred bodice and voluminous puff sleeves, this pretty midi dress is made of lightweight cotton dobby. It’s effortlessly put-together—and yes, it has pockets, too. For size reference, I’m wearing a 6. Per the reviews, people seem to either love it or hate it. I happen to love it.
I’m wearing it dress on the left with a clutch and heeled sandals, and more casually on the right with a tote and flat sandals.
J Crew Factory
Remember this adorable outfit? I was so excited when I put it together.
And I was equally excited when some of the pieces arrived and put it all on! I’m wearing sandals below, but I think I would actually like the look with neutral sneakers (like in the collage) even more. The tee is adorable, which you’ll see in all its glory in a minute, and the skirt is SO chic. I’m wearing a medium in both.
And to keep making my case for the tote, here it is again. 😉
And here’s the white tee from above! Aren’t the sleeves so cute! Again, I’m wearing a medium. Remember to use code STMT10 for 10% OFF if you want to grab the shorts.
The red love knot tote is a whole lot of fun, right?
If you missed my huge Amazon haul last week, you need to for sure click HERE to check it all out!
But I’ve got 3 more really great finds for today’s post!
This striped sweater is what I think is the perfect piece for both early spring and early fall. It’s sweater material, but it’s super lightweight, and y’all know I’m always swooning over a stripe. But a stripe with pops of color? SIGN ME UP! My stripes are black and white and the pop of color is a vibrant orange.
Look at some of the other color options! It also comes in navy!
This sweater is a great basic. It’s a piece I think a lot of you might end up buying in multiple colors because it’s so versatile. It’s soft, and I love the ribbed collar and exposed seem that runs down the middle. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium. It comes in 12 colors!
And here it is styled for fall.
I’m so excited about this next item y’all.
This plaid button up is FANTASTIC. It’s described as a flannel, but it’s not thick or hot like a flannel. It’s much more lightweight than a flannel is, and it’s not stiff like a cotton button up. It’s relaxed and super soft and I love it so much. I did size up. I’m wearing a large here because I wanted to make sure I was going to have a relaxed fit.
I’m wearing the “berry and pine”, but it comes in 22 colors. I’m thinking about ordering the “burgundy” too.
And for fall…
Y’all know I’ve been totally flipping over all of the Ink+Alloy pieces on Amazon, and this key ring is one of my favorite new buys! I slip it on my wrist and it’s the easiest way to carry your keys around. This would make a great gift.
There is an awesome, gigantic, and MIND-BLOWING SALE going on over at Our Place right now.
This cookware set is an amazing deal. IT’S 40% OFF! WOW! Choose your color and get ready to get excited to cook and clean (because the clean-up is soooo easy)!
