When the Loft is having such good sales, I feel like I’ve hit the clothing jackpot. This Dress is a newer arrival and I got it for 50% off. 
 I love the name: Masquerade dress! While the tiered sleeves are flirty and fun...the pattern, is even cooler in person! I wore this for a family dinner out a few weeks ago. And guess what? I'm wearing it today for my last day of work!

There for awhile I wasn’t fixing much at the Loft but wow, they are nailing it lately and I am loving my purchases, many to take me right into Spring and most even discounted more at 60-70% off. 

The Karen Scott booties form Macy's are so comfy, come in 4 colors and are on sale right now for under $35!

Bonus Question: WHAT'S YOUR FAVPRITE SOUP RECIPE? Hands down, my Beef Vegetable Soup

Now Let's Link-Up your fabulous style and head over to The Blended Blog and see what one of our beautiful ladies is styling and loving!


So, I have probably told you before, like when I made my Soulful Chicken Soup, that my husband is not a fan of noodles, however I was craving a comforting chicken casserole And this was an amazing one to put together. I made it while the boys were all home and they scarfed it down and I had a couple nice dishes of it for leftovers at work. 

Super filling and nice blend of flavors.

What you'll need

1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
12 oz. egg noodles, cooked and drained


In a large bowl, combine the soup, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Stir in the chicken, onion, peppers, 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Add noodles and toss to coat. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses. Bake 10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. 

Very Comforting and yummy!
