Greetings, friends! We’re enjoying a slight reprieve from the cold temperatures we’ve had over the past few weeks, and it feels almost like spring around here. I know it’s just a tease, but it has me thinking about spring fashion and wanting to style some transitional outfits.
On my reader survey a few weeks ago, I had quite a few of you ask me to incorporate some styles from T.J.Maxx, so I was excited when they asked me to partner with them again.
In case you weren’t aware, T.J.Maxx now has online shopping! Tjmaxx.com is awesome because you get to enjoy their treasure-hunt experience right from the comfort of home. And if you’re like me, and you don’t always have time for the hunt but enjoy getting name brand clothes at great prices, it’s even better news!
When I’m shopping at tjmaxx.com, I always start in The Runway section. This is their designer section, and it isn’t available at all brick and mortar T.J.Maxx stores, but it is available online. This is another benefit to shopping T.J.Maxx online — you have access to a much larger selection of products than you do when you shop in-store.
With 100s of new arrivals each week, the inventory at tjmaxx.com fluctuates constantly, so just like when you shop in their stores, you’ll want to check out their website often to see what’s new.
Contrary to what some may think, they aren’t stocking second quality or last season’s styles. Because every store carries different products and every item isn’t stocked in every size, they aren’t limited by the inventory requirements that other stores are. This is how they’re able to buy up in-season styles from well-known brands and offer them at greatly reduced prices. Just like their stores, tjmaxx.com uses the same model to provide quality products at a great price.
Case in point: these high rise skinny jeans from one of my favorite premium denim brands.
High rise jeans are trending, and I’m a huge fan. I really like how they hold me in, and I don’t have to worry about exposing my back when I bend over.
I love how these have a classic mid-indigo wash, and the fit is fantastic. They have just enough stretch to be comfortable, but they don’t bag out.
For size reference, these are a 29, and they fit me perfectly, although I normally wear a 28 in this brand. I’m finding that I need to size up in high-waisted styles. I’d say they run true to size, or if in between, size up.
T.J.Maxx has tons of options for premium denim from well-known brands. I was really excited by what I was able to find. This is when it really does help to know your brands, but they offer free in-store returns so there’s no risk in taking a chance.
Sizes are limited and do go quickly, so I recommend ordering two sizes if in doubt. They may not be there when you go back to get them.
I also found these perforated booties from one of my favorite shoe brands. These are a great transition shoe as we head into spring because the perforations keep you cool so your feet don’t get sweaty in warmer weather, but the black suede makes them appropriate for wearing now.
I would only wear these on milder winter days because they clearly don’t work with a sock, but if you live in a warmer climate, you can easily wear them all year round.
Unfortunately these sold out, but this pair is similar, and I like this pair a lot too. In fact, there are tons of on-trend booties available at tjmaxx.com right now. It’s definitely worth taking a look.
On top, I’m wearing this fun striped hoodie. I love the weight of this top — it’s sort of a cross between a sweater and a sweatshirt. It’s almost a terrycloth fabric, actually, and it has a great upscale sporty vibe. For size reference, I’m wearing the small.
Tjmaxx.com has a wide selection of sweaters and tops for this transition season if you’re looking to freshen up your wardrobe without breaking the bank.
Normally I would pair this top with black jeans and a fashion sneaker, but I’ve done that look a few times with a striped top so I wanted to try something different. I like the way the black booties bookend the outfit, and the mid-wash denim is a nice contrast to the black and white.
I chose a crossbody for this particular look because it’s lightweight and practical for a mom on the go, and it keeps you hands-free. This outfit is perfect for a day of shopping and running errands, to volunteer at the kids’ school, or to a ballgame on the weekend. It’s casual and comfortable but still chic and put-together.
