A Little Outlet Mall Shopping

This is a quick little post about my girl's day of shopping with my mom, daughter and good friend Brittany. We decided to head to the outlet mall near my city (I did this last year in February, see my blog post here if you missed it) do a little shopping and have some lunch.

It turned out to be a beautiful day and it was nice to hang out with my mom, daughter and friend for a day. My husband was not there to hold me back! But in all fairness I did not go overboard even though it could have been very easy to do so. I did however wanted to share what I picked up....

My mother stopped in Michael Kors and picked up a tote. It was very nice. We then did a quick pop-in Coach, sorry to say that it was very disappointing. But on we go....

I went into Ann Taylor and like always I find wonderful things....

I love the detail lace on the sleeves. I really regret not buying this!

Love the polka-dot eyeglass case

I loved this skirt as well but they did not have my size.

We then went and looked inside Banana Republic. These were the only things I saw....

The earrings above, this fabulous skirt, again they did not have my size!


This wonderful necklace that I had to buy!

Sorry I had the sku# but could not find it online.

We then paid a visit to Nine West. I loved these but did not buy them.

Or these....

I purchased these. I wanted something comfortable and chic to wear on the weekends. 

This are called the Eladiao flats. I could not find them online anywhere. 

I also picked up these. They are called the Adelineo pump and they are hard to find!

This was the only pair I could find!

I love the gold ribbon on the back and I only paid $20!

And last but certainly not least is my Kate Saffiano tote.

I love the color and the gold hardware. If you wish to purchase it you will find it here. But move quickly, I don't think it will be around too long. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and are able to find some of the beautiful things here.

  1. Mrs. Shockley, I have noticed over the years that you mainly wear skirts or dresses. I am wondering, how do you keep warm in the winter months? I somewhat struggle with this and often just grab a pair of pants to wear in the winter. But, I love dresses and skirts and would like to perhaps only have one pair of pants in planning for the upcoming fall/winter. By the way, I live in Central Pennsylvania and the winter can be very cold! Thank you.

    1. Hello Mya,
      I get this question often. I live in Indiana so I know what having a cold, cold winter can be like. I remember two winters ago it was -45! Horrible!

      What I do during those cold winter months is wear tights and leg warmers. I have some really thick wool ones that are black that I found at a thrift stores years ago. I also wear fur boots to walk to the office in. I keep my dress shoes in my extra tote so when I get to the office I put on my heels and slip out of my leg warmers. During the weekend I don't wear heels but I have some other shoes that have good tread on them. Since I have been doing this for so long the cold doesn't bother me as much. I hope you can find some items that can help you! Thanks for the wonderful question!

  2. Thank you. I found some knit tights on Amazon that I plan to purchase for the cooler weather. And I will be looking into leg warmers!
