LIY Team Try On // Loft

February 18, 2021


Erin Schrader

The team has been super impressed by the items coming out of Loft for the past several months- dresses, skirts, tops, sweaters, accessories and more! So impressed, that we went on a little online shopping spree recently to see what each of us could find for our unique styles! And let me say- that was EASY. They have so many good pieces that we had no problem finding a ton that we loved! Oodles of cuteness for spring, comfy days at home, office looks and quarantine friendly looks. If you love Loft like we do, or are curious as to what we found, keep on scrolling to see everything that was delivered to our doorsteps!

ps. You can see all LIY Team Try-On’s here!


Bobble Sweater [true to size, wearing in small] // Liverpool Abby Jeans [true to size] // Steve Madden Booties [size up .5]

Bobble heads are fun and all, but have you ever worn a bobble sweater? While this may give you some 1980’s vibes, I’m here for it. I love this sweater and have worn it several times since it arrived – the fit is great and the slight balloon sleeve adds an even extra element. Will I be going back for additional colors? Do I love Michael Jordan? The answer is yes.

Ribbed Henley Top [size up if in between, wearing in small] // Similar Jeans [true to size] //  Sorel Booties [true to size]

Ooooh mama, do I love a good henley. I also love all things ribbed [that just got awkward] anyhow, combine the two and wham bam thank you mam, I’m sold . It does look sheer in the photo which is odd because I don’t actually find it to be sheer in person, however, due to it being a little on the more fitted side you can see the outline of my bra. On that note, size up if in between [or don’t and let your bra shine through to the world, up to you ;)]

Striped Pleated Puff Shoulder Top [true to size, wearing in small] // Jeans [true to size]

You’re either on the puff shoulder train or you’re off of it and well, this girl is riding shotgun. I spotted this one on LOFT’s website and wanted to try it, turns out I’m glad I did. It is quite comfortable and is a nice lightweight long sleeve option for spring! Just add white jeans or shorts and done. #thatwaseasy.


Ribbed Henley Top [TTS] // Ankle Skinny Jeans [Size down if in between] // Boots [TTS]

Thinking ALL things Spring even though Winter is lingering here… This top is such a great transition from Winter to Spring option! The color is even prettier in person and it’s the perfect weight for layering or wearing alone! And I have a feeling it will be perfect for cooler Summer nights paired with my favorite pair of shorts!


Lou & Grey Mock Neck Sweater [TTS, wearing in M // Shop all Lou & Grey Tops] // Steph Liverpool by LIY Jeans  [TTS, wearing in 10P] // Regular Length Denim [TTS, 28″ inseam]

WOAH, BABY! This was my first Lou & Grey purchase and the only disappointment I’m feeling is that I didn’t invest in these pieces sooner! I love the fit and the quality- OH, THE QUALITY of this sweater! Unfortunately a lot of others loved it too because this exact style is currently showing as sold out, but really I’m here to tell you how much I am currently in love with Lou & Grey and urge you to test this brand out if you haven’t already. Speaking of things I’m in love with – I’ve secretly been wearing my style from our recent Liverpool X Living in Yellow line for the last couple of months.. They are truly my all time favorite pair of jeans!

No Show Socks

Name one small thing that seems so insignificant but truly bothers you. For me – it’s having to dig my fallen down sock out of my shoe. I’ve been wearing these babies for a few weeks in various types of shoes and have zero trouble with this! They stay on, stay hidden and keep me moving along with my day without thinking about my socks from the moment I put them on until I take them off – the way it should be.


Floral Smocked Cuff Blouse [TTS, wearing xs] // Black Denim [TTS, wearing 0 size down if in between]

Loving this outfit as we [hopefully] transition into spring! I am beyond ready to say goodbye to winter! This blouse caught my eye while browsing through LOFT’s website! I have been such a sucker for anything floral lately! I love the little detailing on the cuff and I feel like this top can easily be dressed up for work [or Zoom!] or for running errands on the weekend! Also loving this black denim I picked up! It almost has a vintage wash to them and doesn’t have that horrible black denim smell, you know the one! Win in my book!

Light Beige Tunic Sweater [TTS, wearing xs] // Black Denim [TTS, wearing 0 size down if in between]

Okay I was also pleasantly surprised with this sweater–it definitely feels like quality! I love the length of it and the boatneck neckline detail! I feel like it is so sophisticated, but with alllll the comfort of a cozy sweater! This one could easily be dressed up or down, I thought about pairing it with black pumps and faux leather leggings or with girlfriend jeans and a sneaker! The sweater that can do it all! 


Waffle Henley Tee [size up if in between, wearing Welkin Blue in XS] // High Rise Skinny Jeans [size down if in between, wearing in 26R but could’ve done 25P for 5’4”] // Boots [tts, wearing 8 in taupe]

I needed more Henley’s in my life and I am happy with this one! I love the sky blue color and I feel like it is flattering without being too tight. These jeans are very comfy with a good amount of stretch – and I love a good button fly!

Smocked Puff Sleeve Top [tts, wearing XS in Forever Navy] // Skinny Jeans [size down if in between, wearing in 26R but could’ve done 25P for 5’4”] // Sneakers [size down .5, wearing 7.5]

This top makes me want to frolic through a field or picnic at a vineyard. I’m just dreaming of sunshine to make that dream a reality! Once again – I’m loving these jeans! However, I do think I should’ve tried a size down and petite instead of regular.

Knotted Button Midi Dress [size down if in between, wearing XS petite for 5’4”] // Booties [tts, wearing 8 in cloud suede]

If you’re looking for a comfy dress that you can wear to work or a day out running errands – this is it! I went with the petite and felt like it hit at a good spot for  5’4”. It’s very easy to move in and I think the knotted detail is so cute!

Love Delicate Necklace

I L-O-V-E this necklace! It adds a little somethin’, somethin’ but isn’t too overstated. The clasps are easy to get off/on and it doesn’t cause any itching.


Smocked Puff Sleeve Top [TTS size down if in between, wearing medium] // Denim [TTS, wearing 6 modern fit] // Similar Mules

Smocking always takes me back to the 2000’s [AKA the good old days], anyone else? If loving it is wrong, I don’t want to be right. I thought this top was fun and slightly unique for a casual day at the office or a date night! It’s soft and lightweight for transitioning to spring– wishful thinking. 😉 I love the square neckline, but I’ve also found it would work off-the-shoulder if that sort of thing is your jam. Here’s to smockin’ n rockin’, friends!
