Today, I went on a huge shopping spree at Gilroy Outlets! As a family, we spent, in total, over $1000! But most of it went to buying purses and bags for some of our relatives in China. However, we did get some things for me. These are my personal favorites of the things I got and how to wear them.
1. Woven Chambray Blue Authentic Vans
I personally love these vans because they are so versatile and go with almost every thing. my Vans broke a couple days ago, so it was perfect timing to get new ones. Since they go with practically everything, I feel that I can use these shoes to tie together an outfit or to dress down an outfit. My Vans fit perfectly in 6.5 in women’s (I know-I have small feet) and the shoes are really slimming.
2. Striped Knitted Pullover Sweater from Banana Republic
This is what my new obsession is! I love this pullover sweater! It’s knitted so it’s extremely comfortable and provides warmth, but it’s also light and breathable. Perfect for chilly spring days. I fit into an xs at Banana Republic. I would wear this with some plain black leggings to balance out the stripes and patterns in the sweater. Then use a pastel infinity scarf to give a pop of color to the outfit. Tie it together with some cute, versatile shoes (like my vans, see above).
3. Short Skirt/Shorts/Skort From Abercrombie and Fitch
I have a slightly different pattern than this, but it’s the same style and color as the skirt/shorts/skort shown above. I fit into an xs. Abercrombie…Abercrombie…. Sometimes I love you sometimes I hate you. This time I loved you because 1. You were on sale. 2. I found some clothes that actually fit me 3. I spent less that $80 at you an got a decent amount of clothes. Back to the skirt/shorts/skort. It’s really shorts. That’s what it says on the website, that’s what it looks like when you hold it up and examine it. But they’re extremely loose shorts so when I stand up for some reason, it looks like a skirt. Literally. It looks just like a normal skirt. And it has the comfort of a skort (even though I haven’t worn a skort since I was 8…). I would wear this with a simpler tee/crop top (and the crop top in the link is GOALS), because you want the skirt/shorts/skort to be the star of the show. I feel like my skirt/shorts/skort has a “boho pattern” so I would pair with leather sandals and cute vintage jewelry. Finish off with a leather backpack!
4. Plain Blue Tee Abercrombie
I got this tee but in eggshell blue. It is just a simple, plain tee shirt. But that’s why it can be so fun. You can wear anything with it. Pair this with some ripped boyfriend jeans, and some funky accessories and shoes. Put on a floral infinity scarf to wrap it all up! I got this tee in xs
5. Splendour Bra from Lululemon
Next, after spending hours at Abercrombie, we finallly left to go to Lululemon. I love lulu. I have an obsession. But lululemon is super expensive, so I only got one thing. This bra. It’s so cute and gives so much support. Ok… Yes, it’s made for C and D cups but yeah, I just be taking out the cups for a while (because I have tiny AA boobs). Maybe forever. I have it in the smallest size, a 2. For this bra, you can wear in on a run or in my case at dance. This is the outfit I would where at dance. With this bra, I would wear some black shorts. And thats about it. But i would probably come with a jacket to layer over and some sporty shoes.
And that includes my favorites that I got at Gilory. I got probably 5 other things, but those were just my top favorites. I hope you liked this type of post and let me know in the comments what your favorite thing I got was.
