LOFT Try-On Session

One of the best things about this time of year is the end of season sales. Today I’m sharing my LOFT try-on session with you. Let’s pretend we’re spending the day shopping together!

Dresses are great for transitioning into fall because you can add a denim jacket and some booties and you have an early fall look. The dresses are on sale, and they have some cute ones.

Here’s some of what I found!

This dress came home with me. I love the ruffle neckline. I’m going to wear this dress with a denim jacket and these booties. (I’m wearing a size 2.)

LOFT Try-On SessionThis was another dress that came home with me, but it wasn’t on sale. It’s Lou & Grey, and I know I will wear it a lot.  (I’m wearing an XS.) I’m going to wear this dress with my chucks.

LOFT Try-On SessionWhen it comes to comfort, this dress has it! It fits loose, and it has pretty pink accents. (I’m wearing an XS.)

LOFT Try-On SessionIf I needed another dress, I would have grabbed this one! I love the color! (They didn’t have my size, I’m wearing a 4, but I would purchase a size 2.)

LOFT Try-On SessionThis is a racerback dress, and it’s perfect for any time but especially for a vacation. (I’m wearing an XS.)

LOFT Try-On SessionIf I worked outside the home, this would be a dress I would want to wear to work. It’s so comfortable you could sleep in it! (I’m wearing a size 2.)

LOFT Try-On SessionI had to share the side of this dress because the seams don’t match up and I know some of you can’t handle that. Haha!! This dress is adorable, and it has a cut-out in the back. (They didn’t have a size 2, so I’m styling a size 0, but I would purchase a 2.)

LOFT Try-On SessionThis outfit is not on sale, but man do I love this top with navy pants. (I’m wearing an XS in the top and a 4 in the pants, but they’re big, I would purchase a size 2.)

LOFT Try-On SessionI love slate gray with white jeans. This outfit could definitely transition into fall with a cute pair of booties. (I’m wearing an XS in the top and a size 27 in the jeans.)

LOFT Try-On SessionI thought this top was cute! A great early fall top. (I’m wearing a small)

LOFT Try-On SessionI’m so honored that you have taken time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and my favorite one, Instagram.

Beauty For the Heart~~This is a short devotional to you who are in a period of waiting.

I’ve been there so many times in life. In some ways, even though I’ve started a new journey, I’m still on the cusp of discovering all the reasons God has us here.

I am slowly reading and studying through the book of Nehemiah. I love how he faced his fears and foes boldly. He relied on God’s strength throughout and never wavered in his faith.

So, if you’re in a period of waiting, or you’re in a period of fear, or facing an unknown, or wondering what God might do through your current situation, from the example of Nehemiah and my own experience, can I be a voice into your life for a moment?

God is not ignorant of your situation. He’s not perplexed, or overwhelmed, or confused or wondering what He will do.

God sees potential in you that you can’t see. He’s got plans for you that you can’t even imagine.

Your greatest fear is often in an area where God can use you most. He gets all the glory when you have to depend on Him.

Faith doesn’t answer the how or when question. Sometimes it doesn’t even answer the what. Faith answers the Who question.

The silence of God doesn’t equate to the absence of God. God is at work. He is fully in control.

So, my encouragement to you is to keep waiting. And, keep watching. And, keep trusting. When it’s time — and God has you ready — if you will humbly submit to His will, He will reveal His plan and work through you to accomplish it. And, it will be good. Very, very, good. -Ron Edmonson

Have a blessed day!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing all these great fashions. For me the person that doesn’t like to shop it was a win win. I got the blue dress and wore it to a wedding this past weekend. I loved the fit and the fabric. Again thanks for all you do.

  2. I’m late reading this post but God knew as I needed your BFTH today. Thanks Cyndi for your servant heart to share his words and encourage. I love Loft dresses and the ones you picked out are so cute.

  3. Hi Cyndi! I’ve been crushing on your favorite Baublebar pearl earrings that you’ve been wearing so much of lately. They’re in my cart, but I’ve yet to “pull the trigger” as I’m on the fence not knowing whether they’re heavy or not. There are no reviews. What do you think? Are they comfortable all day, or only in short spurts. Thanks!

  4. Hello! I was wondering where you found the black bottoms in your last photo? You were modeling the mixed media ruffled top. Have a great day.😋

  5. Thank you, thank you for today’s devotional. My husband has stage 4 colon cancer. We have three sons (19,15,13). We go for chemo treatment number 10 tomorrow and we both dread it.

    Keep being you!

    1. This post touched me today. My mon had stage 4 colon cancer and lived 18 years after her stage 4 diagnosis. Surgery, Avastin, other treatments and an extremely strong will to live kept her going and most of her days were good ones. Stay strong and positive and you both, together, may see your future grandchildren like my mom did. They are making advancements every day. I will keep your family in my prayers. Best.

  6. I really do think you are the sweetist ever.. love your style.. thank you for taking time out of your day for making us more fashionable. 😉

  7. Thank you for the long quote at the end of your post. We are in a difficult season with our alcoholic son and this was a good word of encouragement!

  8. Thank you for today’s Beauty For The Heart,
    my heart needed to hear that and I love ALL the outfits
    on you, you are looking awesome!!
    I haven’t been able to comment in a long time so I have
    a lot of your posts to catch up on!!!
    Have a blessed evening!!

  9. Always love your posts Cyndi, but boy did BFTH speak volumes to me today! Goodness, I needed to read this and reflect. Really applies to my life right now! And of course, I loved the try on sesh at Loft!! Especially loving the dresses and their perfect simplicity! “One and done”and just great transitional pieces. ❤️

  10. This made me cry. I’m having a serious surgery Monday. Fear has been a battle. This touched my heart
    Thank you

  11. Hi Cyndi,
    I love the Loft! You look great in everything! What have you been doing to lose weight? Are you on a special program? You may have mentioned it in an earlier post could you email me about it.
    Your posts are always so fun and uplifting. I so enjoy reading them.
    Have a great day,

  12. Loved the devotion, needed the confirmation of waiting. Loved the Lou and Grey dress and the grey top. Thanks for sharing.

  13. I love everything you have styled and you look great in all of them. I find that the hardest when trying to make a decision. We just want to bring it all home don’t we?? Ha!. I have two dresses that are almost identical to two you showed ( the ruffle bottom, and the flutter sleeve dress) and I wear them a lot. I actually had gotten the flutter sleeve in a grey and black but mine were from The Gap and the ruffle bottom dress was from Old Navy last year and I bought the royal blue and black. I definitely have to check out the slate grey top I love it with the white jeans….Have a great day we are under heat warnings all week so I’m headed to our pool to cool off shortly.


  14. Your post today really encouraged me . Our family has been in a season of trails . While it has been difficult I see Gods hand at work in many ways .



  15. Loved all the LOFT findings in today’s try-on session. I would want all of them!

    Your BFTH today was so what I needed to read! Thank you for sharing such an awesome inspiration. You have succeeded to give me my dose of faith and fashion.

    As a side funny fashion note…we just got back from 5 day vacay at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim. So my mind was still in “vacay mode” yesterday. I had to rush off to the Dr. Office. I was standing in line waiting and looked down and saw that I had two different sandals on!!! They are the same brand but slightly different bling on them. One was black, one was navy blue! I started cracking up and gave the other ladies nearby a great laugh too! Moral of the story double check footwear before getting in the car!

    Now I’m going to go take on the day!

  16. Thank you for sharing these outfits and wisdom. These are great dresses and outfits but I have said no more shopping this summer! Willpower!

  17. Wow, that was a wonderful BFTH word. Thank you very much. I for one, needed that reminder! And love the dresses- on you… most wouldn’t work for me and I’m always looking at the dresses when I am in LOFT! 😉 Have a blessed day!

  18. Hi Candi – thanks for the words of encouragement. My husband lost his job recently and we are at that almost retirement age but not quite. I do work full time but have no benefits. I cannot support us by what I earn and since we are older I think my husband will have a more difficult time finding a job. We have so much to be thankful for but the uncertainty scares me. I will be reading from Nehemiah today – thanks for the suggestion! I always enjoy your posts. Keep them coming!

  19. thank you beautiful Cindy, for that devotion today. It touched me and lifted me up. You are a blessing – I have followed you over a year (and so is my Mom! ) Thanks for being a blessing.

  20. Love Beauty for the Heart today. I have found myself in a period of life waiting on the Lord.
    We recently sold our business and now the question is “what next”?
    There was a time in my life where this would have been a period of fear but being older now, I know to wait and watch, with HOPE and EXPECTANCY. God is always faithful.
    Like Johoshaphat, we do not know what to do but our eyes are on the Lord. 2 Chron. 20:12.
    I will look to the Lord and confident in him, I will keep watch. I will wait with hope and expectancy for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me. Micah 7:7 amp
    God is good!

  21. You look terrific, better than the Loft models. Are you still losing weight on FWTFL, or are you maintaining?

  22. Love the try on session today! Another person commented about how great you look in Loft clothes and she is correct, you look awesome, you should model for them. Thank you for your words today so needed right now.

  23. I need to wear an undergarment under dresses to “smooth things out”. What do you recommend for these types of dresses?

  24. On a diagonal/angled stripe like that, the stripes will start out lining up but can’t stay lined up all the way down. We can be picky about the stripes lining up at the seam when it’s a horizontal stripe but have to be flexible with the angled ones because it will probably not ever happen, especially on a flared skirt like this.

    1. NOT Cyndi Spivey (so crazy to comment on here with the same name, not a usual spelling) but unmatched stripes and plaids can be matched (even on a bias) but it costs the manufacturer fabric and time so even the better brands don’t always. Would be disturbing to me so that wouldn’t be the dress I’d choose although, otherwise, it looks great on our model

  25. Cyndi
    The dress you wanted in size 2 looked so great on you and the color looked perfect for you. Loft will order and have sent to your home for no charge anything you want in another size. I have done this before at Loft as the sizes get gone pretty quickly during sales.

  26. You look cuter in Loft clothes, than their models!!!!

    Because of you, I just bought one of the dresses and two tops. 👍👍

    Morw try on sessions. Love em.
