Outlet Fashion

Happy Friday my loves!  I hope you all enjoyed yesterday’s Seaport Guide!  I can’t wait to share even more Boston neighborhoods with you all!

Today I’m talking about one of my favorite things: outlet shopping.  Over the long weekend, I went shopping at the Wrentham Outlets with my mom and sister.  Most of my favorite stores (Banana Republic, J.Crew, Ann Taylor, Loft, etc.) have an outlet there and it is so fun seeing all the great deals that are available on your favorite styles.

This first outfit is a skirt and top combo from the LOFT outlet.  The three of us stormed into the dressing rooms with arms loaded up with buy one get one free tees and $12 tops, and I happened to spot this skirt on the way into the dressing room.  I actually bought the petite size because I’ve been looking for a skirt that was longer than a mini but still hit above my knee, and this length fit the bill perfectly.  I paired it with my old Treasure&Bond jacket and nude strappy heels!

This second look features a dress found at the Banana Republic Factory Store.  Any dress I can find for $40 is a hard win in my book.  You could definitely dress it up, but I chose to style it for brunch, with some chunky heels, my favorite denim jacket, and this adorable yellow backpack from Zara.

What are your favorite outlet stores to shop? Let me know in the comments below!

Have a great weekend!

Sweet Like Lemonade

Happy Friday my loves!  With this unexpected heat wave this week, I have been embracing light colors and airy fabrics as much as possible.  You may recognize this yellow skirt that I wore nonstop two summers ago from this post and this post, so I decided to bring it back with some pink accents this time.  Yellow is one of spring’s hot colors this year, so I was able to find similar styles herehere, and here.  I was pleasantly surprised at how well it pairs with a variety of colors, from olive to pink.
