Mustard with Pops of Blue: Bloom Pencil Skirt & LOFT Fall Preview

Old Navy Cobalt Blue Heels
Shirt: Express (similar), Skirt: LOFT, Shoes: Old Navy, Necklace: Wantable (similar), Bag: Balenciaga, Lips: Lady Danger
I was recently invited to my first TIFF party, hosted by L'Oreal at the Shangri-La Toronto. I was SO excited to attend a glam event, and wanted to wear something colorful and elegant to celebrate. I've been loving mustard this fall - so I chose this Autumn Bloom Pencil Skirt, and paired it with cream and gold accents, contrasted with pops of cobalt blue.



I first spotted this mustard skirt at the LOFT Fall preview - I loved its longer length (the regular is knee-length on me - I'm 5'4) and that it could be dressed down with a t-shirt or dressed up with a blouse. Scroll down for some of my other faves from the preview:

LOFT Tweed Zip Pocket Skirt 

Love this pairing of a light shirt with a burgundy tweed skirt - it's a great way to bring chambray into the fall. I have some similar pieces in my wardrobe, and I'm definitely going to wear them like this!



This Piped shirtdress is so slinky - the white piping makes it look tailored and formal while the soft material is comfortable and casual - I'm also loving the shirt version of this dress.


The Snow Leopard Print Car Coat was a crowd favorite at the preview - it's definitely a statement piece!


I don't often wear heels with jeans - but if I did - these Peeptoe Booties would be my first choice - they're gorgeous.

I hope you liked the sneak peek of my favourite LOFT pieces...one of the background items will be featured in our next LovePrettyXLOFT post! I'll end with 2 Instagram pictures from the TIFF L'Oreal party:

    1. There really are so many gorgeous pieces - I have my heart set on the black shirt with white piping - which reminds me of one of the portofino shirts at Express! And yes - the booties are FAB!

  3. I never would have teamed mustard with cobalt but it looks fantastic. Your outfit is stunning on you. I like your tips and ideas for the Autumn. I think I'll mix a chambray shirt with a tweed skirt!

    1. Thanks Carylee - this was my first Balenciaga - I adore the small size - and it's held up pretty well - although I'm careful to never wear it with dark denim since it's a light bag :-)
