This past weekend I headed out to the outlets to get some new summer outfits for work. I work in a school setting and I find in the summer it’s difficult to be professional, yet still manage to stay cool in the dreaded summer heat. So this summer I decided to get a head start on beefing up the summer pieces.
This was a little cart or stand in the middle of the outdoors within the outlets. It was purple and yellow and reminded me of something that should be in Aladdin or The Hunchback of Notre Dame. And then once I read the name, I knew it was a place for me. I was instantly swept away into the world of incense, homemade soaps, candles and perfumes. It was such a gem.
This is where I did most of my heavy lifting! I got some great staple pieces for the summer/for work. Some tops, a sweater, and some comfortable Capri pants. All of this actually cost me under $120, which I thought was a steal. Hello Summer Wardrobe!
And last but not least I picked up a few more tops from…
(these three all together cost me about $22)
So there you have it! That’s it for my haul! I caught some good sales and had some coupons, so I kinda just went for it. Granted this is not something I do often but I feel like it’s nice to treat yourself every now and then. And I know with Summer coming up, I want to be prepared to dress both comfortably and professionally. I feel like I went with pastels, and light colors, and a lot of whites and light blues. I think it’s going to be fun pairing these new pieces and mixing them in with some of my other summer wardrobe pieces as well. Happy Summer!
