What I Wore: Maxxinista

A few weeks ago before meeting some friends for dinner, I popped into T.J.Maxx in Georgetown. Growing up, when we did our annual pilgrimage from Sun Valley to Seattle (yes, we had to drive that far) for school shopping, we always started there first. We learned the thrill of a good bargain at a young age from my mom, and it's still my adrenaline of choice today. 

To the important stuff. I picked up two awesome finds in the designer section for crazy good deals. First, I'm normally not a shorts girl. I've had varicose veins since I was a teenager and knee-length dresses are typically my go-to in the summer months. But these Helmut Lang shorts at the bargain price of $30 were too good to pass up. I took them out for a spin this weekend when it was 100 degrees and shorts were the only way to go.

But it's not all about play clothes. The MOST PERFECT-FITTING Tory Burch trouser chinos in Navy were another steal at $40. I've searched all over the interwebs to see if I can find them in other colors. I'm seriously contemplating giving them to a tailor to make a pattern so I can get some other pairs made in different fabric.

On a side note, I'm so glad I chose the wedding shoes I did. I love wearing them to work knowing that they're the same shoes I said "I do," in. And they truly are striped perfection. Definitely getting a great ROI on my cost per wear.
