over the weekend, while it was raining and windy and cold, i popped into LOFT on Diversey Ave to see if i could add some new pieces for Spring to my wardrobe. as soon as i walked in, i knew i would have no trouble finding things i liked. in fact, the trouble was going to be narrowing down what i could actually buy! between the beautifully laid out displays, the perfect pops of color throughout, and the brightness and cheeriness of the store, i was launched right into mid-May. the top that i'm wearing in this post was the first thing that caught my eye. it was on the mannequin right inside the store and i knew, just knew, that it was coming home with me. i made my way through the rest of the store and found a pile of things to try on.

i made my way into the fitting room to get to work. can we just take a second to appreciate stores that have large fitting rooms? LOFT doesn't disappoint. i love their fitting rooms. the lighting is just right. the mirrors are big enough to see the entire outfit without having to go on your tip-toes. and the three way mirror is perfect for checking out all angles of a dress or pair of shorts. i found the perfect dress for summer weddings i have to attend in the coming months. and a graphic tee in my favorite shade of grey. it was one of those rare (for me, at least) times in the dressing room where nearly everything fit just right. i had to rifle through and think logically about which of the pile of things i would be likely to get the most use out of for the spring and summer, although i probably could've taken them all home with me and been just fine with it!  

this pouch was a last minute 'oh, what the hay! just toss it in the pile!' addition that i'm glad about. it's going to be great for traveling. plus, i tend to like using a clutch as a purse during the warmer months, and this one fits the bill perfectly. i had a hard time deciding between the one i picked and this one! oh, and if you happen to be in need/want of the comfiest striped tee, i'd recommend this bad boy.  

thanks to LOFT, i'm ready for Spring! now if the weather could do ahead and feel the same way, we'd be golden...
