LOFT Summer 2010

Here's a sneak peak at what you can expect to see online and in-store at LOFT this summer. Lightweight pieces are perfect for layering, wearing to the office and hitting those outdoor happy hours afterwards. Turquoise, coral, fuschia, mustard yellow and zebra prints stand out against neutrals. The fun-colored animal prints are safari chic in an urban jungle.

Some of my favorite pieces include the turquoise or mustard yellow beaded neck silk shell, shine twist neck top, pocket tank, drop waist tunic and dobby military blazer. My favorite accessories are the blue pom-pom scarf, zebra print scarf and woven canning leather clutch. The LOFT jewelry keeps getting better and better each season.

There are a few pieces that are definitely on my list, including the grey fabric bib necklace (which I got during the LOFT preview), long multi-colored beaded necklace, multi-colored sequin bib necklace, silver and wood exotic necklace and shell stretch bracelet. The bib necklaces may sometimes be too overpowering for my tiny frame but I can get away with wearing the smaller bib styles. Definitely worth trying on.

Looking for a dress? Check out the sleeveless eyelet sheath dress with ribbon show flower pin(left), empire waist dress with ribbon hem (middle) and broken stripe print dress, worn with a grey fabric bib necklace.

I've been meaning to get a boyfriend blazer, preferably this white one for summer. I love the drop waist tunic worn with the long multi-color beaded necklace.

I love this maxi dress border print. It doesn't appear super long, so I may actually be able to get away with wearing this dress without having to hem it.

If you need a summer jacket, check out this cotton poplin one with the double wrap studded belt, worn over the animal print mosaic dress. Definitely a great summer color, this coral silk-tie waist blouse is worn underneath a cap sleeve beaded pullover. The ruffles of the blouse and sequin detail on the pullover look great paired together, without appearing frumpy or overdoing it.

Shine twist neck top with sleeveless sequin tank underneath.

I love pocket tanks. They can be worn with jeans, shorts, leggings or thisornate zebra pencil skirt. The large raffia pin on the skinny braided belt adds a nice touch.

I love these LOFT leather sandals!
