With summer officially just around the corner many of us are looking forward to attending weddings, barbecues and concerts! Have you ever had the thought “this is going to be the BEST summer EVER” and attempted to make so many plans in hopes it would be unbelievably memorable?
Well I love summer just as much as the anyone, but I think it’s always good to keep things in perspective. LOFT has kicked off their first video in a series of “Best Summer Ever” videos created by 3 LA based comediennes spoofing some of the “issues” girls may have when it comes to creating that summer experience.
I don’t know about you but I can definitely relate…there’s been a few questionable parties I’ve found myself at over the years 😉
If you’re a reader of my other site Toronto Beauty Reviews, you may know what a huge LOFT fan I am. I would say a good chunk of my clothing is from LOFT. It appeals to my easy dressing style and just seems to fit my frame and proportions well. I recently went to see what’s out for summer and ended up picking up these two pieces for some events I have coming up.
The above is my attempt at a flat lay photo – check it out on the model for a better look 😉
This jumpsuit is me stepping out of my comfort zone a bit. I’ve always loved the look of the jumpsuit or the romper but could never bring myself to buy one due to the whole “bathroom issue” (you ladies, know what I mean right?). Well, I decided to just go for it with this one and wear it to fancier media events that are shorter than regular parties and just hope that I won’t have to use the facilities 😉
I’m also a sucker for girly dresses so I couldn’t help but pick this one up off the sale rack:
Another attempt at a flat lay image but here is the dress shown on the model:
There were quite a few of these dresses left when I was at the Square One location, but they were a popular item in the change room, so I’d suggested you pop in soon if you’d like to pick this one up!

I’d grab that black and white striped dress!
yes yes yes and yes!!
Omg I want to wear jumpsuits but I’m right there with the bathroom issue. Lolol it’s made me hesitant but I envy the ladies who wear them they are so fab!
That dress tho!
Ughhhh Loft you need to make your way to the east coast canada I know I would be obsessed! 🙂
Holly! So glad you like my picks…let’s just hope I can deal with the bathroom thing 😛
A strapless jumpsuit is awesome! I wore one with a halter style to the Cher concert last year and got compliments like crazy!
Ahh amazing! I’d love to see a pic I bet you rocked it!
I really love that striped dress but I’m not sure it would suit me.
Definitely go in and try it on! I find the ladies at the store (particularly the Square One location) very honest and helpful 🙂
i love the svelte looking black romper! but maybe it’s not as flattering on a shortie like me…the black/white striped dress then!
Judy we are the same height! This one is in petites too so the proportion is perfect!
I totally understand the bathroom issue! I have a black jumpsuit that I actually need to replace (the material is starting to pill), so I may have to go to LOFT and get a replacement 🙂
Sohnee you would look sooo hot in this jumpsuit!
I would buy a new dress.
We can never have too many dresses 😉
I can relate and LOVE the black and white striped dress! I love LOFT and so many of my clothes are from there.
Yay another LOFT fan! I just love the styles and of course the fit 🙂
That jumpsuit! Va-va-voom Elaine! That’ll be amazing on you! Xo
Thank you Donna! <3
I can totally relate to the video. I mean who has not been to a party where all you can think is I need to get away.
LOL that’s the worst isn’t it?
The striped dress is totally my style! love it!
So pretty, isn’t it?
I’d get the jumpsuit! But I also saw a beach chambray shirtdress I like.
Oh you’d totally rock the jumpsuit Leesh!
I’d love to pick up a dress for a masquerade party I’m going to in July.
Masquerade party?! That sounds fun!!!

I am obsessed with jumpsuits! I think they’re so versatile and comfortable! Love the black!
It’s my first one – hopefully I’ll love it too!
I was in the store recently and I had my eye on a number of summer dresses. I also like that B&W striped one.
It was hard to narrow it down to this one – all the dresses were so cute!
No I don’t relate to the girls in the video. There are always lots of fun things to do in my community although the dog is cute.

Glad you’ve never had to attend an awkward party 😉
I’m loving the striped dress and would pair it was a cardigan from the Loft!
Totally loving the strapless jumpsuit! And its just my style!
Amazing! Glad you love it 🙂
I was recently at Loft, I love their sales and selection. I tried on a maxi dress but it was too long for my petite frame so if they had a maxi dress in my size I would definitely get one. Otherwise I also love their sweaters too!
Make sure to ask about petite sizing! I have a maxi dress and maxi skirt from there in petites and didn’t need to hem at all – it was a miracle 😛
The Tall Summer Softened Shirt.
Very nice choice!
I’d totally get that black and white dress, because pockets. Pockets. All the pockets.
hahaha! I love pockets too!!! That’s what sealed the deal for me on this one 😛
I love the Poppy Halter Maxi Dress.
Poppy seem to be a popular pattern among my readers!
I have not shopped at the LOFT in ages. I must swing by their store, and like you I love the sale rack, always find the best things, so I will see what I find, like a treasure hunt
The sale racks are the BEST!
I would get a black dress
You can always use an LDB 😉

I want that striped dress! So pretty. I love jumpers too but such a pain especially when you have to use a public washroom.
Thanks Monica! Yes, that is why I plan on only wearing it for short events 😛
I LOVE that black and white dress! Can’t wait to see you rocking that jumpsuit! Is it petite or do you have to have it hemmed?
Christa it’s petite sizing so no need to hem!
The striped dress is pretty.
I seriously can’t get over how GORGEOUS this dress is!
I have loads of fun wedges but no white dress to match them to! This is totally on my wishlist 🙂

I would love a new summer dress! or perhaps a romper… 🙂
