A Few of my Favorite Things: Spring Break and Smart Buys

WELLLLL, hate to BREAK it to y’all, but only on day left of SB (get my joke? ;))

But seriously. I have had too amazing of a Spring Break to have only one day left :(. Makes me sad…

But I am determined to soak it up though, and make it a great last day! Hope you guys are too! Even though I didn’t go anywhere this break, the little taste I’ve had of warmer weather leaves me wanting to head down to the beach! Sadly, that’s not in the plans anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean I can’t dress like I’m there :). And I just have to throw it out there; I love T.J. Maxx so much! For a girl like me who’s always shopping for cute but cost conscious clothes, it is literally God sent! I got this skirt and two pairs of sunglasses (one of which I’m wearing here) for $35. That’s a pretty good deal in my book! Definitely a place to hit up for some cute spring and summer clothes.

So here’s a few tips on how to navigate the TJM racks, because it can be confusing!

1.) When in doubt, try it on! That may sound simple, but a lot of times I find things I’m really iffy about and when I try it on I love it! They have some unique stuff there that may come off as weird on the rack but look great on. What have you got to lose anyhow?

2.) Their accessories are awesome! I too often only go straight to the clothes and overlook the incredible selection of jewelry, bags, sunglasses, scarves, hats, etc. Seriously, I’ve been missing out.

3.) Don’t be afraid to wander into different size sections. They order from countless brands and they all run different, so a medium may fit better than a small or an extra small may be just right.

4.) Set a limit for yourself. Seeing a ten dollar shirt can make you believe you can buy a cart full with a small am0unt of money, which is possible, but usually what happens is you fall in love with a billion things and walk out with two hundred dollars worth of stuff! OUCH. That’s the sound of your wallet hurting.

Hope you enjoyed the post! 🙂

Love, Konnor with a K
