I Heart the Outlets

Do you want to know one of the greatest things ever invented? Outlet malls. The more I blog and keep track of what I'm wearing every day, I realize how much my wardrobe relies on them. Luckily, there is an outlet mall almost directly between my home in Cincinnati and my university, so it has become a frequent stop on trips to and from school. It was practically a holiday the day the J.Crew outlet opened there. Since then, almost all of my J.Crew pieces have been bought there at awesome bargain prices, including the jeans I wore today.

What I'm wearing: Old Navy jacket, H&M flower pin, Gap outlet sweater, J.Crew outlet jeans, Kelly and Katie flats via DSW, Forever 21 necklace, Kate Spade outlet tote

Three of the things I'm wearing today were from the outlets: my sweater, jeans, and tote. I got the sweater for $20, jeans for $30, and tote for $100. Some may think $100 is a lot for a purse, but for Kate Spade, it's a damn good price. Also these jeans regularly retail at around $90-$100, so they were quite a steal. So moral of the story: I love the outlets. If you don't have one near you, I don't know how you live without!
