I headed to T.J.Maxx thinking that I definitely wanted to find a printed dress of some sort and go from there. My plans all changed though when I came across these jeans. They’re a favorite brand, and I’ve actually had my eye on these for a while. They’re a thick ponte material, so they have the styling and cut of skinny jeans and feel like your favorite leggings. They fit like a glove, and the second I put them on, I knew they were coming home with me. I tried on a slew of printed blouses and tops and finally narrowed it down to this navy and red print. I love pairing navy with black, and this blouse was just too soft to pass up. It’s also a nice contrast paired with the casual jacket. For the final touch, I knew I wanted a dash of leopard, and in luxe calf-hair, you really can’t go wrong. They’re a designer that I love, and (bonus) they’re seriously comfortable. Like, walk all day in New York comfortable. Leopard is one of those classic prints that can be treated as a neutral and worn with pretty much anything in your wardrobe.
On my way out, just for good measure, I scooped up a new moisturizer that I’ve been dying to try at a price that I couldn’t pass up. The beauty department at my local T.J.Maxx could be a full Saturday’s worth of exploring, and if you go back a week later, there’s a whole new selection of brand name finds. Shopping with a specific trend or style challenge in mind makes things fun, and you end up coming home with things that you actually love instead of impulse buys. What fall trend will you challenge yourself with?
