Little Black Dress for Summer

loft_mixedeyeletdress_summeroutfit

Loren Hope Siren Studs in Coral,       Natural Denim Jacket from J.Crew,       Aerin Day Essential Gold Bangles,     Of a Kind  x  Lizzie Fortunato Embroidered Zip Clutch,     Loft Mixed Eyelet Cami Dress (on sale with code FLASH)         J.Crew Black Carla Sandals (on sale!) 

The other day I spotted this perfect little black dress on Stripes & Sequins and I loved how it was a classic cut but a bit more interesting due to the eyelet. Do you all ever shop at Ann Taylor Loft? It is not somewhere that I think of often, but after I spotted this dress on Liz's blog I decided to head the store to check out their designs. I was really happily surprised, they had a great selection of pieces. Their designs remind me of what J.Crew used to be back in the day, classic basics that are essentials for any closet. I tried on a few pieces, but ended up leaving with the black eyelet dress that Liz posted and this lavender silk tank.  The dress is a bit longer than I would normally like so I think I may hem it just a few inches. Do you all get your clothes altered? I just started to get some pieces altered and I have realized how much of a difference it makes. Back in January, I got the short sleeves taken of a Madewell dress and I loved how it turned out, the dress is now one of my favorites in my closet. Anyway, I can't wait to wear my new dress with my tan denim jacket and simple black sandals. While I love blue denim jackets, this neutral denim jacket is a new favorite in my closet.  And then how about some beautiful gold bracelets to polish off the look, this bangle set from Aerin is on my wishlist.  

Here are some other items from LOFT that have caught my eye. (Use the code FLASH to get 40% off until Tuesday June 23rd.)
