Go Bold

J Crew floral print chino and blazer

I had to go bold the day before we head out for our Memorial Day glamping adventure. The next several days will only include swimsuits, cut off shorts, flip flops, water slides, messy hair, grilling, washer games, loud music, friends, family and lots of sunscreen. 

I couldn't wait to get "dressed" and wear this new pattern short set I scooped up during the J.Crew Factory sale (going on through the weekend). I am bummed that the blazer is sold out online, but the floral chino shorts are still available for less than $30. If you live close to a factory store, they may still have the blazer in stock and on CLEARANCE! I scored it for $40! Both items fit true to size and are fun spring/summer pieces easy for mixing and matching.

If you plan to take advantage of the Memorial Day weekend sales, here is a quick reference to a few of my favorite shops and retailers. These type sales typically only happen twice a year...now and during the holidays. Get you favorite summer staples for a steal and before they are long gone.

I love this bold outfit. I have these shorts too because I fell in love with the colors but didn't pick up the blazer. And we are shoe twins too! Have a great weekend of glamping!

Wow you look so put-together. The entire outfit is well thought-out. Good job! I don't usually shop J Crew, but the store does offer nice stuff. Also love the cuff - it's beautiful.

I had these shorts in my cart yesterday but traded them for the pink striped ones. And now I could kick myself. They are so cute! Well I have been reading your blog every day for at least a year now - I remember your glamping trip from 2013! We have 5 grad parties this weekend! Perhaps we should go glamping with you so I dont shop all weekend! Those sales!! Susan
