Outfit Of The Yesterday: Black + Brown + Peach + White (& A Review of LOFT’s Corded Dobby Striped Trench)


♫:  Where Are Your People? – We Have Band

Fall is in the air! Okay, not really, but spend 2 seconds online and you’ll see that lots of retailers are beginning to get their fall inventory up and ready to buy. It’s a little hard not to be tempted (all while feeling totally sick to the stomach–is it really already August?!), and the Corded Dobby Stripe Trench from LOFT finally sucked me in. I had been on the hunt for a cute-and-patterned trench after seeing the super fab Chiara Feraggni of The Blonde Salad rock one during spring fashion week:

And the LOFT trench satisfies that little craving pretty darn well. It comes in all sizes (regular, petite, tall) and is made out of their corded dobby fabric. If you’re unfamiliar, corded dobby is almost like a thick canvas; unlike canvas, however, it has a real softness and flexibility to it, making it easy and pretty comfortable to wear.

I am wearing it in a petite XXS below, and it fits well in all places that are usually tough for petite statures–chest, shoulders, and sleeve length. It nips in nicely at the waist and the back has a teensy bit of a flare to give it some girliness, too. I think this will go down as one of my favorite purchases this year from LOFT (and if you want it for yourself, you can take 25% off with code “psw25fp”):

On to an outfit! I am going back to basics today with a mix of black and white. Sheer, chiffon blouses have definitely become a staple for me in hot weather–they cover things up nicely while still being cool and comfortable to wear. Love:
