Natalie In Her Sunday Best


I woke up this morning to find Natalie wearing her Easter bonnet hat, a necklace and mommy’s new pink heels. She is just too much! I got those shoes yesterday while visiting Woodbury Commons – an outlet center that is about an hour’s drive from my house. The majority of the stores were WAY TOO high end for me, but there were a few that were worth a visit.

Bill’s favorite store in the whole entire WORLD is Vineyard Vines. He is OBSESSED with it. And they had CRAZY deals – it was definitely worth the trip. $15 shirts down from $100. You don’t even know how much he came home with. It’s not really my style, so I ended up just getting 2 shoes from Nine West (Buy 1 Get 1 50% off). Besides the hot pink heels – which I wore last night while hanging out with a group of friends at a Portuguese restaurant – I also got a pair of black cork wedges just perfect for the summer.

Do you outlet shop? Or is it more trouble than it’s worth?

  1. I LOVE outlet malls! I used to work at one and it was always PACKED on the weekends (especially when it was nice out). If you’re willing to fight the crowds you can usually find some good deals.

    I worked at an Old Navy and would get so annoyed because we weren’t an outlet store but were located in an outlet mall (they got rid of the ON outlets a few years ago). People would always come up to me and ask why everything was so expensive (and in my opinion, ON is very reasonable) and would get mad at me like I’m the one who made the prices.

  2. I love outlet malls! We have one about 30 minutes from our house. I don’t get there very often but I really should! Took my mom and the kids there last week during spring break and we got some amazing deals! My sons got tons of stuff from the Nike store, and I got some things from there as well as Old Navy. You can really find some bargains in those stores!

  3. I agree. We go all the time!

  4. I am a moron
