This weekend, I had the opportunity to shop a little bit for an upcoming summer trip and discovered the gorgeous new Loft’s line, Lou & Grey that recently opened its first concept store in Westport, CT. The store is beautifully decorated, clean and modern, with lots of art, that in contrast with the white walls and floors, makes you feel like you are gravitating through a clothing gallery.
Even though the store was super busy, their amazing manager Kathy, allowed me to roam around the store and take all the pictures! How can they keep the store so neat with so many customers and yet help them all? I really don’t know, just ask Kathy and her wonderful crew!
With my trip in mind, I started by picking a few summer staples and headed to the fitting room. First up? A pair of linen shorts that I can wear all day long (available in such beautiful colors that it was difficult to pick only one), followed by a criss-cross tank that I know it will be my vacay essential (got it in several colors). When it comes to dresses, a striped one is a must-have and this blouson tank was a match made in heaven. Last but not least, for a good layering piece, a cardigan is a wardrobe essential and because even during the summer can get chilly at night, this whisper cardigan is so lightweight, you might just forget it’s on!
The Lou & Grey collection features knits, sporty and loungey soft-dressing pieces in a pale color palette, leggings, tunics, slouchy linen T-shirts, fly-away cardigans in neutral colors and textures that readily mix with other casual sportswear.
They also have a curated collection of third-party vendors with products that are very focused on craft, including organic beauty products, jewelry, shoes from different brands and a wonderful library with amazing books with a staff selection of page-turners that you will love! No wonder they are all about #theampersand, which you will see all over the store. &&&!
If you don’t live around the area, I definitely recommend you to check out the collection that is available at Loft stores and on LouandGrey.com. I’m sure you will fall in love with the brand instantly, the same way I did!
