Over the past few years as I’ve been working a full time corporate job, I’ve come to love Ann Taylor Loft. They have a nice variety of work and casual clothes and a lot of what I call in between clothes. Things that you could wear in both situations depending on the top/bottom/accessories paired with it.
I rarely buy anything full price here, because they always seem to be having sales. This weekend I took advantage of the 40% off everything and added a few new pieces to my wardrobe.
What I purchased:
Lace print pleat neck sleeveless dress
Mini chip print tie neck blouse
Jewel embellished sweatshirt
Striped drawstring neck tunic
I also picked up a cream tank and a basic 3/4 sleeve black cardigan to replace one I have that isn’t very black anymore.
Obviously the tunic is a casual only piece, but I just had to get it. For days when I work from home it will be perfect.
The tie neck blouse is a great example of an in between piece. With a pair of dark jeans and black flats, a great outfit to grab a glass of wine with the girls on Friday night. For work I could wear it with a skirt or dress pants.
The jewel embellished top is an interesting fabric, to me it feels like a mix between sweatshirt and sweater. I think I could still wear it to work, but I’d go for a pencil skirt and heels to make sure it felt dressed up enough.
The dress I was thinking could be dressed up enough for a wedding or paired with a cardigan or blazer for work.
