Ann Taylor Loft – End of Summer Looks

Today I am showing you outfit looks from Ann Taylor Loft for the end of summer.  Loft has many sale styles to fit every woman – petite, regular, tall and plus.  These tops and dresses from Loft are items you can wear now. But they will be classic wardrobe pieces to carry you into Fall.  As a woman over 40, I like to be stylish and cute but comfortable in the clothes I am wearing.  How I style my clothes from Ann Taylor Loft may be different from you.  I hope my looks will give you inspiration for your visit to Loft. These outfit looks are what I feel comfortable in.  When we feel comfortable, we look confident.  And I feel like I can relax and really be myself when I am confident in what I’m wearing. feel-comfortable-confident-relaxed-in-loft-clothes

The first piece of clothing from Ann Taylor Loft is like a navy teal gray color.  You have the Fall look while not sweating to death haha.

I wish I had gotten this; I’m keeping my eye on it.

100% polyester in the front  with the back being a knit blend that hangs nicely.  It doesn’t cling with the knit fabric.  The fit is true to size.  I love the buttons in the back-gold.  I can put my top on without having to unbutton it.  With another top and dress, I had to unbutton it before getting my head through the hole.

Exactly the same except for the front fabric.

Pink Shell:  Made differently.  The front is a polyester blend so it is different than the other shell.  Love that it is not see through.  It’s a warm blush color.  True to size fit.  Love the detailing about the neck and arm holes.  This top has the same buttons as the navy one.  All of Loft’s shell tops have a shirttail hem that helps tucking in your shirt easier for different body types.

See how it barely sits off the shoulder?

Notice the flutter sleeve?

Oh my word, this off the shoulder is beautiful.  It barely comes off the shoulder.  If you are over 40 and have been on the fence about an off the shoulder shirt, this short sleeve sweater from Loft is a great choice and fit!  You need to wear pants that are higher waisted because the top hits right at the waist.  But for a special night, this would be a treat!

Love this with a denim jacket. I like leaving the buttons undone at the wrists.

This white lace stripe halter swing dress is so dreamy.  Swiss dots line the neck and arm holes. 

I bought it in Tall Medium, and I love the fit.  Fully lined with just a bit of flow.  Love this! I do not feel like a 40 year old trying to look younger.  I feel airy and cool on a hot summer day at a picnic for about 5 minutes because we’re in Houston.

spring-floral-halter-topThis floral sprinkle halter swing dress is beautiful and airy too.  And the regular Medium was plenty long enough for me as 5’8”.  I just didn’t want it bad enough.  I did have to unbutton this dress to fit it over my head.

Gasped when I tried this on!

Ya know that feeling when you immediately gasp when you see a top you love?  This floral smock shell is my favorite purchase from Ann Taylor Loft this summer.  The fit is great.  If you have a tummy, this baby doll style will be flattering on you.  Love this color, and I think it will look great with jeans, navy and army green pants.  This is fully lined and would also be a great work outfit piece for your wardrobe. pink-shell-from-ann-taylor-loft

Loft has upped their quality in the last 2 years, and I’m loving how they have lined their tops and dresses.

LOVE this dress with coral and blush loafers.

Loved this dress, but I was worried I wouldn’t wear it enough.  I am keeping this sun dress because you can style it with a coral or blush cardigan. I wore it with my blush loafers.  Can you see the mint and blush? Again, because I live in the south I paired it with a jean jacket and boots. It’s long enough of a dress for me to feel comfortable in the summer and in Fall.

Great dress for Summer and Fall.

I really like Loft’s denim because they make a curvy skinny which works well with my body type.  I tried on 9 pairs at Madewell yesterday, and none of them looked or fit correctly for me.  I also tried on some expensive ones at Nordstrom and did not bring home any of them.  Finding good jeans is like shopping for a bathing suit, right?

Thank you Ann Taylor Loft for lined tops and dresses, making them not see-through!
