When “text shopping” with my friends, LOFT favorites always come up in our lengthy chat threads. They carry a super inclusive range of sizing (petite, tall, plus, AND maternity in both regular and petite) so we can each find something that fit and flatters without breaking the bank. This is especially true now as I’m shopping for my changing figure, but still want access to the same cute and colorful styles!
They are having an amazing sale this weekend with 40% off + extra 10% off, plus free shipping on orders (use code HOORAY). If you’re placing an order, do yourself a favor and add one of these adorable (and nice quality) umbrellas to brighten up a rainy day – I got the border floral one!
A classic denim jacket is a spring-to-fall staple (and a travel must) – I picked up this one a while back as I wanted something slightly cropped in length. Fit is true to size and the wash is a medium-dark blue, with very minimal distressing despite the style name. There are two button tabs at the bottom back so you can actually make the waist look a little more fitted, if desired.
With the exception of bottoms, I’ve been trying to dress mostly in non-maternity pieces that I can continue enjoying long after pregnancy. LOFT tends to make a lot of tops and dresses in swingy, shift or A-line silhouettes, which can accommodate (or help hide – if that’s your goal earlier on!) a growing midsection. This knit navy & white chevron dress (unlined) will be cool and comfortable in the coming summer months. It also comes in maternity sizing, but I’m wearing my usual petite size here at 22 weeks.
Denim jacket in xxs petite: 13.5″ across shoulders, 16″ across underarms, 18″ length, 22″ sleeve length.
Chevron dress in xxs petite (loose fit): 14″ across underarms, 25″ across bottom hem, 31″ length.
And if you’re an expecting mama in need of new bottoms, I recently posted here about LOFT’s maternity jeans and work pants. For a casual pant alternative to denim, I also tried on these maternity chino pants that come in both olive and grey. A 0 petite (1 size up from my pre-pregnancy LOFT size) fits me well, with a slim straight cut throughout the leg that looks cute cuffed up! I’d style this simply with a knotted tee or A-line blouse, topped with a denim jacket.
Thank you LOFT for partnering on this post.
