Thursday’s Fab Five

DC is hot, hot, hot! No really, it’s been hot af with no rain in sight. Argh. Anyway, here are some of my recent warm weather faves I’ve been reaching for on the reg!

Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen SPF 30, $9

It’s pool & beach season, which means we all need to apply, and reapply, the SPF! This is my favorite sunscreen because it’s spray, so it is easy to apply, and 30 is just enough SPF for me to get a decent tan and not burn. I reapply often especially if I’m in the water a lot, but I love that it doesn’t smell weird or give me any sticky feeling. It’s on sale at Ulta right now, so stock up for the summer! They also have Beach Defense in 70 and 100 SPF if you want to block out all signs of the sun!

Thursday’s Fab Five

Happy Thursday!  Fall is in full swing, okay not really but, I’m speaking into existence…

So, what have I been loving for the last couple of weeks?  Check it out below & leave me your favorites in the comments!

Yankee Candle in ‘Spiced Pumpkin’, $22

The totally quintessential fall candle, it smells like a pumpkin, and will fill your whole room with the scent of fall.  It’s not a sweet smell which I really appreciate too.  Bonus, it’s currently on sale through Macy’s, so make sure to click the link above to save some $$$.

LOFT Summer Haul

LOFT is without a doubt one of my favorite stores, the sales are incredible, and this past weekend I stumbled onto their site, and scored some seriously great steals.  LOFT was offering 30% off full price merchandise or 40% off if you have a LOFT store card, which of course, I have.  Even though that sale is over, LOFT is now offering 40% off certain styles today, online only!  By the way, this is in addition to the sale items that are an extra 40% off.  I can’t lie though, yesterday the sale styles were an additional 60% off, I paid under $20, even under $10 for a majority of my order.

LOFT often does these random pop up sales, so if you’re a LOFT lover like me, sign up for their emails, that way you’ll always be up to date with the newest sale information.

Sale items + their prices after the extra 60% off!
Bought these in both charcoal & black, they are my favorite leggings ever!

The one full priced item I bought, and received 40% off for, were the Modern Skinny Jeans in Dark Plum Kiss, after the 40% off they came to $41, which isn’t bad at all!  LOFT jeans are so comfortable and last forever.
I haven’t shopped in a while, so this was the perfect little haul for me this summer.  Check out the LOFT website ASAP to save some $$ on summer staples.  If you have Ebates you’ll get 2% cash back on your purchase!  If you don’t know much about Ebates, take a look at the site, here, and learn how you can earn cash back in the easiest way ever!

Loft Weekend Finds

Loft Weekend Finds

My mom visited this weekend which of course meant…shopping!

I spent some time in Sephora for the 20% off sale (more on that later), but per usual I found myself perusing the Loft store and just had to pick up a few items.  Aside from the Veteran’s Day promotions, I was able to use my teacher discount, which gives me 20% off.

First, this jacket, the Zip Sweatshirt Jacket, love it.  Perfect for both jeans and leggings with whatever shirt underneath.  I rarely wear white so this is def a nice new addition to my wardrobe.

This Leopard Jacquard Flare Dress is everything.  The color and print is just amazing, it’s perfect for a holiday party.  It was so comfortable and the fit was great.  I always worry about length but this was right on point, not too short, not too long.

Lastly, I always love to add to my jean collection, and these Modern Skinny Stitched Moto Jeans in Smash Blue Wash added a new color and overall look to my collection.  These will be perfect with any type of boot this season.  Bonus: they’re on sale for $39.50, original price $74.50

Loft is always my favorite, I could find something new every single day in that store!

Mini Loft Haul

I’ve been so incredibly busy with teaching, and most recently, moving.  I decided to reward myself this weekend and take a break, at Loft, of course.  Everything, yes everything, at Loft was 40% off this weekend.  {Prices below reflect piece at full price} 

Since there’s a Loft less than a mile from my home, I was there pretty quickly. 

I’m a Loft addict for multiple reasons.  First, everything they sell is work and out of work appropriate.  You can play with the pieces to make them more or less conservative.  Second, they always have amazing sales, AND I have a teacher discount, which is so incredibly helpful.  Third, Loft has a ‘tall’ size option for everything.  Life savor.  I can’t tell you how many times I try on ridiculously perfect dresses, but it’s just a tad too short to wear to work- it’s so frustrating.  BUT, with Loft, I never have that problem.

This season Loft has some pretty great fall dresses.  I’m choosing to wait on these two below, but I will be getting them the next sale that goes down.
I could not, however, wait on this jacket.  Tell me this isn’t amazing???  It IS amazing.  
I also got this shirt, I really liked the colors, it screamed fall and winter in my opinion.  It’s perfect for work with a sweater, and then happy hour after work with friends…no sweater?
Floral Vine Bow Neck Shell, $54.50
The last thing I bought from Loft were hair ties, on final sale.  I can’t find them online anywhere, so the next closest to the colors of mine are below in the Olive Bow Hair Tie Set.  These types of hair ties are super trendy right now, and with good reason.  I always have my black Goody hair ties on deck, but this newer style of hair tie doesn’t pull so much, always comes in cute colors, and so far, hasn’t dented my hair if I leave it up all day.
