Ladylike

 

I am so excited to share the first in a new series of posts featuring spring trends with T.J. Maxx!  Since PPF is all about scoring great deals, this was a dream collaboration.  I personally love shopping at T.J. Maxx because I can find designer pieces for so much less (it also helps that there's a store within 10 miles of my house).  For this first post, the theme was "ladylike" and we were asked to create a head-to-toe look with pieces we found at our local store.  Since I typically gravitate towards more feminine styles, this couldn't have been more perfect for me!

I absolutely fell in love with this fit & flare jersey dress - it's one of those pieces that is so easy to dress up or down + flatters any figure.  And until the warm weather arrives here in New York, a classic trench is a must have for those chilly days.  The piped detailing & colorblocked hem on this one gives it a decidedly springtime feel.  Let's just take a second & discuss the amazing deal I got on this coat - the "compare at" price was over $200 and I bought it for under $80!

Of course, no wardrobe is complete without a simple strappy sandal...a style that is so on-trend right now!  I was thrilled to find this metallic pair because I don't have anything like these in my closet & they literally go with everything.  To finish it off, I added a lightweight scarf (we all know I have an addiction to stripes), a clutch in a contrasting color (how dreamy is this aqua hue?) and the perfect gold buckle bracelet (for an extra dose of shine).






And now for some exciting news...you can submit your own T.J. Maxx Style Scout looks for a chance to win up to a $500 gift card - click here to read the official rules & find out how to enter!!


T.J. Maxx gives women more possibilities to express their personal style by carrying the hottest trends and current season designer fashions at unbelievable prices.  Our T.J. Maxx Style Scouts are on the hunt to find and celebrate women that are making the latest trends their own, and share tips for ways to express yourself through fashion.  You never know what you'll find at T.J. Maxx - the possibilities to express yourself are endless!

Upstate New York winters must be different from Chicago, because there is noooooo way I'd ever be able to stand outside in open toed shoes and bare legs and a trench. I can't even go outside without boots and a down coat.

Christine Chambers said...

Loveeee that dress!! The clutch is adorable, too. Way to go, Maxxinista ;)

I LOVE TJMAXX and shop there a lot especially the 23 by my house. I find designer items at always a great price. When I get great compliments on my outfits I am usually wearing something from TJMAXX.

If you get a sec, check out my latest post 'Bold in Blue'.

So ladylike! Very pretty! I love TJMaxx! Just got some Steve Madden flats that are super cute, a necklace that is awesome and a black and white stripped cardigan that looks like a blazer at a TJMaxx while in IN on business. Each store always had something different.

Sarah said...

This looks so lovely, what great finds! Our version TKmaxx is pretty hit and miss but you have a lovely outift there!x

clpatters said...

I LOVE this entire outfit. That trench is seriously amazing, and the color of that clutch is so perfect! I'm a huge T.J. Maxx fan, and it doesn't hurt that there are three within 30 miles of me!

Ha, after commenting on the photo of the black and white bag you posted on Instagram, I promised myself all afternoon, "I'm getting a black and white bag this spring, period!". And then as I was leaving work, I grabbed my purse out from under my desk and realized... it's black and white. YOU HAVE A WAY WITH SELLING, MY DEAR! I just want to buy everything you post. Especially this outfit. Everything from head to toe is gorgeous, polished and perfect for spring. I adore TJ Maxx because they make it SO easy to look classy and not spend too much! I may need to swing by there today! :)

SoJez said...

Gosh I can't stop staring at this outfit. It's so beautiful. I especially love the trench. I've never been so lucky to find such gorgeous clothes at TJ Maxx.
