Laid Back Lunch Date, Love for A-Line Skirts, and My LOFT Sale Shopping Cart

These are my favorite kinds of skirts.  While I like pencil skirts, I really, really love a-line skirts that are fitted high on the waist then float away from your body, especially in warmer months.  I also like them for being on-the-go.  Maybe it’s because I have big hips that get in the way, but with pencil skirts I often have to adjust them throughout the day after a lot of movement, but that’s not the case with these skirts!  They’re easy to move in, and I’m not constantly adjusting them.

A fitted waist also means that you can tuck in tops.  You can tuck in dressier short sleeved blouses, like the ones we talked about yesterday and button-ups (tucked in or tied over the skirt) to dress them up a little.  But, last week I paired the skirt with a graphic tee and sandals for a lunch date with Benson and errands after.  So easy to move in!

I found a bunch of cute patterned ones below, all but one are under $40, though many are under $30 with a current sale, and a couple are under $20 from Target and Old Navy.

And, while looking for skirts I saw that LOFT has a sale going on right now: $25 skirts and dresses.  What they don’t tell you is that a bunch of other things are on sale too, and I didn’t even find out until I put the items in my shopping cart!

I ordered a pretty red dressy tee/top like the ones we talked about yesterday.  LOFT says it’s on sale for $40, but when you put it in your cart it’s really $24!  Awesome surprise!

I also got this tie waist dress that was about $35 after the sale.

Lastly, I got a knit circle skirt that’s a-line with a fitted waist, but it made of comfy stretchy material.  I picked up the coral one (been looking for a coral skirt forever!) but it also comes in navy, black, forest green, and berry.  After the $25 discount it came out to $24.50!
