Every March I do a big try-on post at LOFT. I was really excited to do this one because it’s been SO long since I’ve done one. I used to do fitting room try-ons all the time but Covid really changed everything. It seems like years ago instead of just 1 year. The spring selections this year are very fun and flirty. There’s a really cute line with lots of cherries and I am HERE for it!

I know a lot of you are transitioning back to working in person after long stints of working from home. I’m going to start sharing more workwear again for those of you who need it. This post has some lovely spring dresses that are great for wearing on the job.

Today is the last day to save 40% (30% on Lou &  Grey) and score free shipping with code SUNSHINE. I’ve linked everything under each photo or you can shop the widget at the end of the post by clicking each picture.

For reference I am 5’4” and generally a 12/14.

Cherry Embroidered Elbow Sleeve Tee

I love elbow length sleeves so I was pretty happy about this one! Online reviews said runs small but I didn’t think it did; this is a large and it fit perfect. The embroidered cherries are so cute and will be so cute for spring and summer outfits.

Lou & Grey Pocket Softserve Tee

I wish you could feel these tees through the screen! They are the softest thing ever- I bought 2 and am ordering more colors online. They are seriously heavenly. Bonus- the white wasn’t too see-through so I finally have a good basic white tee. I sized down to a medium which is what I always do for Lou & Grey.

Lou & Grey Cherry Sweatshirt

If it wasn’t already so hot here in Florida I would have grabbed this one for sure! It’s super soft and the cherries are just darling. There’s also a matching pair of joggers that are super cute. I sized down to a medium which I always do for Lou & Grey.

Shimmer Striped Smocked Neck Shell

This top is really pretty but it was a little too sheer for my taste. If you don’t mind a bit of sheerness the shimmer is really pretty. I would, however, skip this one as workwear. TTS, wearing a large.

Chambray Square Neck Top

I liked this chambray top a lot (just not with these pants lol). Because of Covid I didn’t want to stay too long so I decided not to change pants but I think this would be great white white jeans or colored denim. TTS, wearing a large.


Cherry Balloon Sleeve Swing Dress

I think I was most excited to try something in this new cherry print. I went with the dress because the tanks were mixed media and I wanted something more solid. I really like the sleeves but I do feel the dress runs a bit big (wearing a large)


Brushstroke Square Neck Swing Dress

I’m wearing a medium petite because they didn’t have a large. It’s really cute but I definitely would have preferred my usual large. Even in the petite length this would have been fine on me for work.



Brushstroke Knotted Swing Dress

The fit on this was amazing! I wish I had somewhere to go that I needed it. I’m wearing a large and it fits TTS. If you are a teacher or work in a casual office setting this dress is perfect. It’s also church appropriate and I just love it.


Pleated Muscle Tee

I didn’t like this one on hanger but once I put it on it definitely grew on me. I’m not usually a tank kind of person but this is super cute. The pleats are subtle and make it drape really nicely. TTS, wearing a large. It’s oversized so I probably could have done a medium if I wanted it more fitted.


Brushstroke Flutter Sleeve Midi Dress

This is another great option for work. I’m wearing a 10 because it was the largest size they had in stock but I definitely would have preferred a 12 so I would say it fits TTS.


Floral Side Tie Henley Swing Dress

This one is a sneak preview so it’s not available online yet! I’m hoping it will be soon. I’m wearing a large and it fits TTS. The side tie make it super adjustable and I think it would be darling for work.


Petite Tiered Flutter Sleeve Midi Dress

I saved my favorite dress for last! This midi dress has a high low hem and the color is gorgeous. I’m wearing a medium because they didn’t have a large but honestly it fit perfect so I would say this one runs large.
