LACE CAMISOLES FOR LAYERING

Fall is in the air, and that means it’s time to break out the layers!  Lace camisoles are the perfect piece for transitioning to fall because you can wear them alone or throw a jacket on.

I recently purchased this polka dot lace camisole from Abercrombie!  Yes, you read that right, Abercrombie.  I’m pretty sure it has been at least 18 years since I’ve purchased anything from there, but I stumbled upon it during Labor Day Weekend sales.  I wore it out for date night, and it’s perfect alone or with a leather jacket thrown on top.

It will be great for the office too!  It’s not too low cut, and will be perfect with a long cardigan thrown over it.  This one comes in several different colors and prints AND it’s under $30!

KENDRA SCOTT COLOR BAR PARTY + MY FAVE PIECES

Jewelry + shopping + cocktails = the perfect girls night out!  I was in my local Kendra Scott store a few months ago and I randomly dropped my business card into the fish bowl for a chance to win a Color Bar Party.  Since I don’t normally win anything, I really didn’t think this time would be any different but to my surprise I was wrong! I won a party for a few of my girlfriends and I, complete with champagne, snacks, and all of the pretty baubles surrounding us!

What is the Color Bar?

The Kendra Scott Color Bar is an interactive tool that allows you to customize your own pieces in store AND online!  Choose from 50+ styles and 30+ stones to create pieces that are exactly what YOU want!  Maybe it’s the digital marketer in me, but I totally geek out over fun and interactive things like this.  I could spend hours playing with this tool and creating and recreating ideas.  I am kind of known for being indecisive, so with this many options we were bound to be there all night 😉

What is a Color Bar Party?

A Color Bar Party allows you and your closest gal pals to have a fun night out playing with around with the interactive touchscreen, and putting together your own creations.  You can choose from earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and rings!  The store associates were so helpful in bringing out cases of stones and popping them in and out of various pieces for us.  If you want to host your very own party, call your local store to set up a time.  It’s a great idea for a girls night!

It’s fun to see what everyone creates and how it is unique to each individual.  Scroll on to see what I got, and what some of my gal pals chose!

Our Picks

Remember how I said I was super indecisive?  So instead of creating something from the Color Bar, I ended up going with a pre-made necklace!  I didn’t own any KS necklaces until now, and I love that this one will go with literally everything!

PENDANT NECKLACE (available in multiple colors)

The last time I visited the Color Bar, I left with two pairs of earrings.  I wear both of these all of the time!  I am actually surprised at how often I come across things in my closet that the green stones go with.

EARRINGS

 

One of my friends bought two of the Edie Rose Gold Cuff bracelets and has been layering them.  I wouldn’t have thought of doing this, but it’s such a cute look!

BRACELET

If you’re indecisive like me, the Shelia Earring is a great option because when you design your own you can choose a couple of different colored stones, or you can stick with all one color.  This is such a fun statement earring!  This cat’s eye blue with the gold looks so pretty!

Insider tip, sign up for Kendra Scott emails if you haven’t already, and in your birthday month you will receive 50% off!  Now that is something to look forward to!  We had such a fun evening, I highly recommend having your next gals night at KS!

FRIDAY FAVES + MY WEEKEND PLANS

T G I F my friends!  I am off today and looking forward to spending it with my oldest at Six Flags!  I haven’t been in YEARS, but it should be a good time.  I made a promise to myself before summer started that I would take random days off throughout the summer instead of stockpiling days off to use at the end of the year when it’s too cold outside to do fun things anyways!  I’m happy to report that I’ve held myself to it and I’m so glad that I have.

So as summer starts to wind down a bit, I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces (all of which are under $30)!

SIMPLE SLIDE SANDAL

I have been wearing these cute slides all summer long.  They come in a few colors and are under $30!  They go with everything from jeans to dresses to skirts!  They have held up really well too!

A FUN SUMMER PURSE

I recently snagged this little beauty for $6 at an antique store!  I thought it was such a cute purse for summertime outfits.  The best part is these beaded bags are having a bit of a comeback right now!  Fashion most definitely repeats itself!

HOW TO SHOP T.J. MAXX LIKE A CHAMP

This post is not sponsored, but thank you to TJ Maxx for gifting me with my $50 gift card for the Maxx50 Challenge!  All thoughts in this post are my own!

One of my favorite pastimes is spending a Sunday afternoon roaming the aisles of my local TJ Maxx.  Not kidding.  Obviously that doesn’t happen much anymore, but I recently got the opportunity to relive the glory days and shop til I dropped!  I teamed up with TJ Maxx for their Maxx50 Challenge, and hit my local store to see if what I could find for under $50! Read on to see what I scored for under $50!

The good news is, you can shop all of the great brands and deals that TJ Maxx has to offer from the comfort of your home too!    The same methodology I use for shopping in store can be applied to shopping their site online!  They offer Free Shipping over $89 (with Free Returns in store)!  Be sure to sign up for their emails because they will sometimes run Free Shipping promotions!

FIRST THINGS FIRST, THE CLEARANCE SECTION

When shopping my local TJ Maxx, I ALWAYS go straight to the clearance section.  It’s usually located towards the back of the store, just look for the signs!  I typically search the clearance dresses first, and then make my way over to clearance tops and bottoms.  Some of my favorites brands to look for are Beach Lunch Lounge, Cloth and Stone, and C&C California to name a few.

Shop these great dresses over on T.J. Maxx.com!

TOPS + BOTTOMS

I love searching my TJ Maxx for cute tops that I can wear to work and transition to my weekend plans.  I can always find brands like Flying Tomato, Free People, and Love, Fire, most of which are under $30!

Fabulous tops can be found over on the TJ Maxx website!

A great pair of designer jeans is another thing you can almost always find at TJ Maxx.  This is especially true if you’re lucky enough to have The Runway section in your store (online too)!  The Runway offers high end designer pieces without the high price tag!  Besides jeans, there are always plenty of skirts and shorts to be found as well!

Shop these great skirts and jeans!

ATHLEISURE

If you have cute workout clothes, you’ll hit the gym more right?!  That’s my motto anyways!  After scouring the Clearance, Dresses, Tops, Jeans and Skirts I always pop over to the workout section!  Mesh panel leggings are all the rage right now and TJ Maxx for sure has you covered!

Awesome athleisure finds over on TJ Maxx.com!

SHOES, SHOES, SHOES

TJ Maxx always has the latest and greatest trends when it comes to shoes!  So many great brands to choose from with styles for all seasons and occasions!

Shop these shoes!

KIDS

Shopping for my littles is something I LOVE doing at The Maxx!  They have so many unique and fun pieces, along with name brands that I love at amazing prices!  I know I don’t have to spend a lot on pieces that are only going to fit them for a season!

So many fun kids pieces to choose from!  They have toys too!

HOME

So at this point, if you’re like me you have now been in store for at least an hour!  I hope you have just a little more time because the Home section is not to be missed!  Throw pillows, kitchen towels, and picture frames are just a few of the things I love browsing!  I also adore the scalloped tissue paper and greeting cards that I always find near the checkout counter (if you’re a friend of mine, you know me for this haha)!

Stock up on items for your home!

Now for the fun part, what was I able to snag for under $50?!  A whole heck of a lot!  And I came in with a couple of bucks to spare!

What’s your fave thing to shop for at TJ Maxx? Tell me in the comments!
