Summer is here and that means my four kids are home full time. It also means that we are on the go trying to take advantage of all the fun things that summer brings and basically being outdoors as much as possible. We’ve been doing swim lessons, summer camp, amusement park trips, fairs, festivals and a reunion. We did a 10 mile bike trip last weekend from Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Heritage trail starting in Millvale. Even with the crazy rains and flooding, we’ve managed to have a ton of outdoor adventures. What this all equates to is that I needed some cute, easy outfits for on the go while still maintaining a semblance of style…and LOFT delivers.
I recently snagged a bunch of great finds from LOFT during their big Fourth of July Sale. Summer living means I’m loving rompers and jumpsuits right now. I’ve always been a big fan (remember”Romper Room” haha) of this 5 second uniform. You literally grab the romper, throw it on and go. No need to coordinate tops and bottoms. Its simple and comfortable just like summer.
Here’s what I’m loving right now from Loft ->
This blue chambray apron jumpsuit. This is the softest chambray ever! I love the material and the color is so pretty. It has the perfect straps to make it wearable with a regular bra. This would be cute with a cardigan once the weather gets cooler. It is a lightweight fabric for summer though. Size small for reference. I’m about 5’6″ and it comes right at my ankles.

I am obsessed with blue if you haven’t figured that out yet! When I first saw this gorgeous sapphire colored jumpsuit I knew I had to get it. I didn’t even realize it had this beautiful back detail. It a tie waist and fluid jersey fabric. Only con is that you cannot wear a regular bra, but a strapless is hidden. It comes to about the same length on my ankle with forgiving drapey pants. You could pair this with some pretty high heeled sandals for a fancier look or throw on a blazer for work.

Over the years I am slowly beginning to appreciate this neutral tone of green (I like to think it brings out the green in my hazel eyes). It goes with so many skin tones. This romper is a lightweight and soft linen material with adjustable straps. You could get away with wearing a cute lace bralette underneath or a strapless bra. I also love the length on it – being 3.5″ its not too long and not too short. It also has plenty of room for my long torso. The fabric is machine washable too which makes it a great find! Size s for reference.

Denim – These shorts are a great length and very light and soft fabric. There is also a great stretch to them but not overly stretchy. Light denim is very in right now and I like these because they have the added embroidery on the sides. Great length too at 3″ inseam (I won’t do anything less than 3). Size 27 for reference although with the stretch prob could have gone with a 26.
Top – This ruffle racerback tank is a hot style right now too (similar to a more expensive version). It is a nice fluid jersey style and has great coverage so its not sheer at all. Size s for reference.

Pants – These jogger pants are extremely comfortable. I could sleep in these! I wore these with high heeled sandals for a night out but can be worn with a tee and sneakers for a more casual look. They are a great length (full length not crop) and have enough room for a curvy figure. Size 4 for reference

Top – not wearing the top I purchased from LOFT but its similar. Here’s a link to the new cami I just got from LOFT. Size s for reference.
