HAPPY LEAP YEAR DAY! About every four years, we get an extra 24 hours of the year! Woohoo! How are you going to spend yours? What a luxury to get an entire extra day! I really love this time of year when Spring is approaching! One day may be 75 degrees then the next it could be 60 degrees. This is a sign that Spring is around the corner and I ALWAYS get a raging case of SPRING FEVER! I feel like a grizzly bear ready to come out from hibernation and shed the winter coats and furry boots! Hmmm, maybe more like a butterfly emerging from her cocoon! Yep, that’s sound better!
I popped into a new TJ Maxx last week and felt like Dorothy entering the Land of Oz! A 2-story magical place filled with colorful Spring clothes, shoes and handbags. HEAVEN! I was thrilled to find a few great MUST HAVE’s to share with you. If you are active on Facebook or Pinterest– forgive the repeat info, but I wanted to make sure you fabulous bloggers were in on the fun too!
COLORFUL JEANS! Last year, the red jean was on everyone’s ‘must have’ list- this year it’s all about the YELLOW jean. I found a great outfit online by Rag & Bone which totaled $495. just for the sweater and pair of jeans. NO LIE! Many of you have more important things to spend $500. on- like maybe important things like food and clothing for your children:-) I found a comparable version of that outfit at TJ MAXX for only $45. Of course, the quality of the fabric is different, but for a trendy piece (like colored denim) that you may not wear next season- this is a wiser investment!
Rag & Bone $495. TJ Maxx $45.
SOMETHING MINTY FRESH! I was a bit iffy on MINT being the new hot color for Spring, but it’s grown on me. It’s fresh and feminine and pairs with a variety of other colors! Since I have so much yellow in my skin- mint isn’t flattering around my face, so I will opt for a jean/pant/skirt or a great HOBO BAG like this one from the Maxx…
CORK WEDGE! This is one my absolute favorite MUST HAVE’S for Spring! Every woman should have a great, go-to cork wedge in her shoe collection. A fresh twist for this Spring is a colorful wedge or one with a splash of color as an accent. These by Steve Madden are so fun! Only $40. HOLLA!
There’s just a little teaser! I’m sure I will find many more MUST HAVE’S as the weather gets warmer! Stay tuned!
Feel free to share this with your friends- everyone likes money saving tips.
