Black, white and red

Today's outfit is almost entirely from Loft. I am definitely a Loft Girl. Loft has cute, on trend pieces that are usually affordable. Best of all, they frequently have sales, which makes it even better for the budget fashionista. For that reason, I always wait until there is a good sale to buy what I have my eye on. In my opinion, to get the best Loft deal, wait until you can get 30-40% off. Trust me, it happens more frequently than you would think - sign up for the emails and follow them on Facebook!

I've mainly been focused on stocking up for spring, but now is also a great time to get some current season pieces on major sale. If you live in the Midwest like me, then there is still quite enough time to wear them to make it worth it! I noticed that Loft has the pants in my outfit on clearance here in the Julie fit and here in the Marisa fit (I have the Marisa). If that wasn't great enough, clearance items are also an additional 30% off making these pants only $31.42 (originally $79.50)!  Obviously, I had to share! The only downside to clearance items is that they are final sale, so you have to be confident in your size. Loft's regular sale items are also an additional 30% off right now, so it's worth a browse. If you happen to buy in petite, I'm really loving these on sale for $34.99 (a few sizes available in regular, too). Select full-price items are 40% off with the promo code TAKE40 - what a steal! I got some great spring pieces a couple weeks ago during a 50% off sale that I will share in a spring fashion post later.

Anyway, on to the details of what I am wearing:

Top:  Loft (no longer available, but similar Loft style here at 40% off, at JCPenney or Old Navy)
Pants: Loft (on clearance here in Julie and here in Marisa)
Shoes: Loft (no longer available, but love this Nine West steal here)
Bag: Target (also in red, which looks more orange/coral in person, and tan)
Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs via Nordstrom (similar on Piperlime, but with white face, similar save at Macy's or similar steals at Target here and here - Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors watches often go on sale at department stores like Macy's and Nordstrom, so check often)
Bracelets: Gigglosophy via Etsy (pavĂ© link bracelet here - identical to the J. Crew version and spike bracelet here - similar steal to the Stella & Dot Renegade Cluster)
Necklaces: J. Crew (no longer available, but bow necklace on eBay here and similar pearl on eBay hereThis in gold at Forever 21 is a steal)
