I’m SO excited to share our collaboration with LOFT (#LovePrettyxLOFT). Elaine and I created the LovePretty series because we gravitate towards the same pieces while out shopping, but we style them completely differently. Elaine has a very chic look with dainty details, while I focus on simple basics and dress them up with sparkly jewelry and luxe accessories.
We both love the classic clothes at LOFT, so we’re collaborating with them on a 2-post series featuring 3 items from their Spring/Summer collection. Elaine and I will be wearing the same items – but highlighting their versatility by putting our own twist on them. At the end of our series, we’ll be hosting a reader giveaway with grand prizes of two $100 LOFT giftcards and runner-up prizes of LOFT summer clutches!
The first item we picked out was this Red Tile Print Henley blouse. It’s a gorgeous lightweight material that is very silky and soft. I’ve paired it with distressed boyfriend jeans, strappy sandals and a structured bag. It’s the perfect outfit for a coffee date!

The second piece we picked was this blue flower statement necklace. It has a very tropical feel, so I went into full holiday mode and wore it with leaf-print pants, turquoise sandals and a LOFT straw clutch. The necklace looks substantial but it’s very light and comfortable to wear.

How would you style the LOFT shirt and necklace? Would love to read your outfit ideas!
DISCLAIMER: We selected the LOFT pieces featured here from their Spring/Summer collection, and they were gifted to us by the company. LOFT will also be providing giftcards and summer clutches for our giveaways.

Love all your outfits. They're so summery. I have the same skirt that Elaine has but never thought to pair it with a red shirt. Will try it next time =)
Ooh lucky – I love that lace skirt, it's sooo pretty – and yes, it pairs perfectly with red, doesn't it?
What a fun series! Love seeing how the two of you each had completely different takes for the blouse and the necklace. Love the settings for your photos here too. It's fun to see you in an "on-location" shoot. :)Gina — On the Daily Express
Thanks Gina – we're having SO much fun with this whole project 😉 And shooting each other on location has been a great learning experience for us…MAJOR respect for those bloggers who regular post "on-location" photos – so many variables to think about (i.e. does it look like there is a tree growing out of my head – ha ha!)
Love both the looks…first one is my favourite. That necklace is surely a steal deal.Hope you are having fun days.LoveShilpiwww.pinkjasminestyling.com
Thanks Shilpi – I'm loving the flower necklace too – the jewel details are SO pretty!
Love that henley blouse on you and the statement necklace-good choices! Loft has so many great items, I'm using one of their skinny pants in my post tomorrow. Fun collaboration!Marta xowww.sweatersstripesandsweets.com
Yes, LOFT has SO many great items – I'm loving all their summer prints! Glad you liked our choices 😉
you look so cute i love this style http://coeur-of-fashion-blog.blogspot.com/
Thanks so much 🙂
Such great style! I'm all over these outfits. Great collaboration. 🙂 Looking forward to the next one!
Ahh this is such a great collaboration for you and Elaine! I love each of your unique spin on the clothes. Looking forward to the next one. 🙂
Thanks Arianne – our collab just came about so naturally 😉 We were able to easily find items we BOTH loved from LOFT 🙂
So many favorites in this post. That first top is amazing and carefree all at the same time. I am super bummed those leaf print leggings aren't available online in the states!Sequins&Stilettos
Thanks Skylette! For the leggings – I'd keep checking the F21 website for restocks – I promise you, I've seen it sold out and restocked a couple of times already!
One of my friends & I ALWAYS pick out the same pieces when we're out shopping. We've even ordered the same pieces separately online before! It can be a bad thing sometimes if there's only one item left in stock. ; ) I love those leaf print pants you chose to pair with the necklace!jessydust.com
Too funny that you and your friend are also drawn to the same outfits! It's funny because we even have similar pieces from different brands that look alike ;-P
What a fun collaboration! Those sandals and necklace are paired so perfectly with those pants. I love both looks.
Thanks Schnelle – the leaf pants were a bit out of my comfort zone – but after wearing coloured denim – I felt adventurous enough to try printed pants too ;-P
How cool! I absolutely live in LOFT! Both outfits look perfect for Summer, and I love seeing pictures of you out and about. Great styling!
Thanks Noelle – I'm definitely going to spend more time in LOFT – their quality is amazing and they have great sales too!
lovely post 🙂 I really enjoy reading your blog! haha keep in touch x Peachhttp://momomoworld.blogspot.com
Oh I lovee, the second outfit!! I've never really paid much attention to LOFT but I've been noticing it more recently and will be sure to check it out. http://christycee.blogspot.ca/
This is such a great idea! I love seeing how items can be styled, but this is one better. Now I can see how two different people can make the same item their own. Love the first look with the jeans and sandals, so polished but still casual!
