I have been by myself for the last two week. Both Husband and The Boy have been on vacation in SE Asia with my brother; a Graduation/Guys Trip. They finally come home on Thursday and I couldn’t be happier. They will have been gone a total of 18 days, visiting Tokyo, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and Singapore, where my brother currently lives.
It’s been an amazing, and eye-opening trip for them, but so very lonely for me. Even shopping and store visiting has become a little boring. But! I’ve pushed on, in case you are looking for any deals or wishlist items. One rare stop last week was to Loft. There was a Linen Tee (below) that Jean had posted about and it looked very nice and the colors very saturated. Also, shirts were 40% off and some pants were $40 off!
Chambray Bustier,size 6 – This is a super-cute little top and great for layering under a blazer or cardigan, or for wearing now to combat the heat. It’s not cropped either. This size was a good fit. The back has elastic to stretch some.
Floral Linen Sleeveless Tee, XS – This was the only size available in the tee that brought me into the store. It fit but looked a little stretched out. The colors were just as saturated as I’d hope they’d be.
Floral Mosaic Sleeveless Linen Tee, Small – This is the size I would go with as it fit well. There was no pulling or stretching. The armholes aren’t cut too low. In the end, I decided neither were for me or currently life/work-style. But I definitely recommend the Floral print above as the colors are as saturated as I’d hope they’d be.
Piped Shirt, Petite Small – I was very interested in this top, having seen it online and though it’s Polyester I really liked it. I ended up going with the Petite Medium as the arms were cutting in a little to make it somewhat uncomfortable.
With Summer Sales at full gusto and Fall Arrivals trickling in, it’s hard to stay focused on what’s really needed in my closet versus what’s wanted (everything!).
