Sunday Social

I didn't link up last week but have no fear, I'm back for Sunday Social this week!  This week is all about of my loves!!!

Sunday Social

What is your favorite store to shop at?
I have to go with two places....The Loft and New York & Company.  I worked at NY&Co for years.  I met some amazing friends there, spent a ton of money, and stocked up my closet.  While I'm not in agreement with the vision the company has right now, it's still a go to store for me.  And what can I say about Loft?  It's amazing.  I love everything about it.  At any given time, you can walk into that store and it's totally my style!  Plus they have amazing sales!!!  I'm also slowly falling in love with White House/Black Market.

If you could afford anything and everything, which designer brand would you covet?
Tory Burch.  It's bold, quirky, fun yet classic all at the same time.  I have 2 pairs of shoes (thanks Hubs!!!) with my eye on a handful more and I'm planning on getting a pair of TB glasses when it's time to get my eyes checked again.

Must have closet staple?
A great pair of jeans and a great pair of khakis.  I just so happen to have both and go figure, they're from Loft!!!

Favorite kind of shoes?
I'm a flip flop/sandal kind of girl.  I'm born and raised in Florida.  We were flip flops in the winter.  It drives the Hubs crazy that I really don't own many closed toe shoes but I can't help it.  I love sandals!  I will say though, I'm a big fan of ballet flats too!

Best clothing deal you've ever gotten?
I have a couple.  First I have to thank my mom for instilling in me the value of the clearance rack.  I can find the most amazing deals there.  Last week I got a pair of $80 trouser jeans for $4.88 at Loft (I ended up buying 2 pairs).  I've also bought a really cute dressy top from Loft for $1.88.  About 10 years ago I found a BCBG skirt that was originally well over $300 for a whopping $12!  I tend to panic a little if I have to pay full price for clothing.

Style you'd love to try?
I would love to be able to pull off a cute romper or colored skinnies.  My body type just does not go well with either so I'll save everyone's eyes and stick to what I know works (no matter how much I want to try it!!!)

So where do you shop???



  1. What is the vision of NY&CO right now that you don't like? I don't think I've shopped there before so wouldn't know. I LOVE LOFT! Although I can't even go in there unless they're having AT LEAST 30% off everything. But I love their sales and love their LOFT card too.

  2. I'm interested in the vision NY&Co is taking ... I hadn't heard anything about it!

    And PS, I wish I was a romper gal. I'm so long-waisted, though, they cut me in half.

  3. My momma did the same for me. Straight to the back of the store for clearance finds first!

  4. First of all that picture of your kids holding hands is so precious! I don't know if I have ever shopped at loft but I have been to NY & Co.

  5. Really need to go to the loft more often!

    come over and visit :)

  6. I love the Loft! It's hard to find petite on sale there, though :-/

  7. I have a few dresses from White House/Black Market and I love them! :)

  8. I agree with the romper situation, I cannot for the life of me pull that look off, I tried once and failed so I just gave up. Great answers!!

  9. I was interested to hear you say that about NY& used to be my go-to store but lately I haven't found anything I've even really wanted to try on, but haven't been able to put my finger on why.

    I'm a big Old Navy fan for casual summer dresses!

  10. I wish I could pull off rompers and colored jeans too. My torso is crazy short, and I just look funny :(
