Why is the year 2016 so awesome?? Let’s begin answering that by taking a look at your personal style choices. Do you wear skinny jeans, flared or boot cut? Do you prefer bell sleeves, shoulder pads, oversized tops or flannel? What about short boxy-style jackets, brown suede, denim or black leather jackets? The answer to all of these questions is….”IT DOESN’T MATTER ANYTHING GOES”. 2016 is the time to let your personal style and creative juices flow.

J Crew and Banana Republic have fashionable and trendy clothing, however they are sometimes too costly and put an unwanted dent in our wallets. So, I went to both their websites to find cute outfits that I could recreate with pieces from here in the store. In doing so, I found out how much money you could save by shopping consignment! This is a good example of one of that many reasons why shopping consignment is beneficial in multiple areas of life, in this case finances. Check these outfits out:

With all of the various summer activities going on, sometimes laundry is hard to check off the to-do list. Your favorite summer outfits, including the cute floral romper and sundress you just bought, are all in the dirty clothes bin. You check your phone and realize you don’t have enough time to throw them in the wash before meeting your best friends for lunch and an afternoon of shopping.
What do you do?
I’m here to tell you that your afternoon is not in vain.
Throw on a white shirt and your favorite pair of jeans, some wedges or flats, and accessorize as little or as much as you’d like.
While a white shirt seems basic, you can easily dress it up or dress it down depending on the occasion. It also is light and can keep you cool on the hot summer afternoons. Jeans are always a comfortable option, and never go out of style.
