Not bad for $110

So we went to the outlets today by the TJ (as the locals call Tijuana) border. I have to say, compared to the Leesburg outlets, these pretty much sucked. But they do have a J.Crew outlet and the Neiman Marcus last call had a wall full of Kate Spade shoes for me to try on.

The J.Crew outlet was *full* of cute stuff. I had a hard time sticking to "basics." No embroidered capris. No plaid shorts. No ribbon belts. No headbands. I needed some dress pants so I was super excited to find these:
  • Brown plaid pants
  • Brown houndstooth cuffed pants
  • Black plaid cuffed pants (SO Christmas-y and I TPH them)

White and navy and white polos (50% off!) and navy argyle sweater

Close up of the pant patterns

Grey plaid pants (with a tiny blue stripe) and a blue sweater from Gap

All in all, not a bad haul. I'm sure I'll be back at the outlets again soon. Those Kate Spades are calling my name!

The Bed Bath and Beyond outlet was excellent. Way beyond my expectations, actually. It definitely had a lot of their triple chocolate banana creme pie strawberry shortcake scented nonsense but I got some good stuff. Large bottles of my C.O. Bigelow Rosemary Mint body wash were $2. $2! I normally pay $13. Into the cart they went. :)

We also stopped by the Veronica Mars props sale at the movie studio down the road from my work. I picked up a framed picture that hangs in Veronica's bedroom. It's not really my taste (very California-y) but the picture is a b/w of an old gate and I really like that. So yay! I own something from VM!

Cute stuff! I found some really cute things at the Leesburg outlets. I want to drive back there for a day trip.

Have a nice day!

Cute stuff, love the tartan pants! It is just so hard to just stick to the basics at the J Crew outlet. I literally want to buy one of everthing. Good for you for staying with you misson- finding dress pants.
