Factory fix

I’m visiting my parents on the coast (of Mississippi) this week while the kiddos go to a sea camp and learn how to be “Coast rats”.  With no cleaning, cooking, or dog-walking to do for the first time in…..FOREVER!! I figured I’d take advantage of the extra time to myself and hit the outlet malls.  As always, my first stop was the J. Crew Factory to get my fix.  Y’all. I don’t think I’ve ever walked into one of these and walked out empty-handed. It’s just that good.  And right now, they are offering an additional 50% off of all clearance items with code SUPERCLEAR, making them ridiculously great deals. Here’s my roundup of my faves:

Blue check skirt // Blue tank // Yellow Necklace // Gold Slides


First up is this bright blue buffalo check sidewalk skirt with a gathered waist for only $22.49. It’s a linen-cotton material and oh-so-comfy and lightweight, making it a truly perfect option for an outdoor event like a company picnic, wedding shower, bridal lunch, etc. I’m wearing a size 0 because it ran sorta big, so definitely size up for a better fit. The top runs TTS and is a super-soft garment dyed tank that could just as easily be paired with jean shorts. At $9.99, I’d grab one in a couple of colors if I were you! I couldn’t find the exact necklace online, so I linked one in the same yellow color but in a different style. The gold Boardwalk slides aren’t on clearance, but at $29.50, they’re still a great deal in my opinion and will quickly become your go-to sandals.

Clearly I can’t get enough of this blue and yellow combo because oops! I did it again with this blue linen embroidered dress and yellow necklace.  This could work as a coverup or a dress, and the fit and length are perfect for either! The clearance price for the dress is $29.99 and it runs TTS.

This sunny-colored fringe tank has been on my wish list for a while thanks to its thick straps that conceal bra straps and fun fringe details.  It’s under $20 right now and I’m wearing a small, so I’d say it runs TTS.  It also comes in several other colors, but I love how the yellow looks with these madras shorts that are now only $14.99. They are the 5″ length, which seems to be the most popular, and a super-soft pre-washed cotton material that will have you grabbing for them over and over again.

I’m also crushing on this little white embroidered dress (which comes in navy too)  and think it would be perfect for date night, lunch with a friend, or even as a coverup. I’m all about multi-functional clothing and this one certainly is! The material is thick enough not to show anything underneath and the length is perfect at right above the knee. It’s currently on sale for $44.99 and I’m wearing a small.

I’m not sure whether this is a coverup or a dress or to be left to one’s imagination, but I absolutely loved the fit and versatility of it.  The orange (Cerise) color was so fun, but it also came in white, and since it’s fully lined, it’s a great option too! I dressed it up with this navy chain link necklace and the same gold slides for a look that could take you from the pool to a restaurant and everywhere in between! At only $14.99, this is a must-buy in my book!

So now that I’ve gotten my J. Crew Factory fix, it’s your turn! Don’t miss out on their great clearance items that are 50% off right now, but going fast!
