I needed to restock on a few work essentials a few weeks ago, and decided to check out LOFT, which is one of my faves for office-appropriate items that are also cute enough to double as weekend wear. And lucky for me, I happened to stroll into their store right just as they were having an extra-40%-off-all-sale-items sale (which seems to still be going on!). A sale on sale items is my favorite kinda sale.
I was instantly all about this striped pencil skirt (available here), and I loved that the fabric was thick enough to smooth over any bunches created by a poorly tucked-in shirt. (As you can kinda sorta see in these pics, I am terrible at tucking in my shirt.) Plus, with the 40%-off discount, the skirt, which was on sale for $39.99, came out to just around $24.
I wore my new striped find during a brief heat wave last week, pairing it with an silk tank that I got for free at a fashion swap last year and some black kitten heels from Aldo, which were on sale for around $65 (available here). With a gifted black bag and hand-me-down sunnies, the whole head to toe look came out to $89.
