Hi gals! Anyone else super excited for the 4th of July?! My parents and I always host a party for everyone, and this year is going to be extra special since we have our new home. I will be sharing all of our recipes, decorations, and outfits from the party next Thursday!

Today, we are talking about J. Crew Factory, which is the outlet store for J. Crew. We have a J.Crew factory at our local outfit mall, NEX Outlets, but what I love about J.Crew is that they offer an online factory shop! A lot of major brands do have outlets but you can only shop their great prices and sales in store. Lame!

One thing to remember when shopping at any outlet is the products can vary in quality/design from the “real” store. One difference I have noticed with J. Crew vs. J. Crew factory is the quilted down vests. J. Crew vests have two buttons on each side by the pocket and the J. Crew factory vests just have the pocket. Yes, I know this is so small and not really a big deal because you are saving some major cash through the factory, however it is good to keep in mind when shopping! Minus the vests, I really have not noticed anything else. The most important part, the quality at both J. Crew stores are definitely there. Make sure to sign up for the Factory’s email list because they send out some super great deals!

I have always been into Flamingo’s {because they are just too cute & my great grandma loved them!} so I had to share this tank with you! I purchased a medium, but I should have sized down to a small. Since it was a little big, I put it in the dryer and it did shrink just a tad so now it fits perfect. You can find this tank for under $17, click here!

Since the majority of the tank is navy, I wanted to carry the pink into my accessories, thus allowing the flamingo detailing to stand out. I went with my go-to Kate Spade cross body to make the details pop {also purchased at an outlet!}! You can find a similar style here! Paring this top with a pair of white shorts, again make the small details pop out a little more. White shorts are a summer favorite in my closet because you can wear them with literally every.single.thing.ever! No joke.. when it doubt, just throw on a pair of white shorts!

Below are shorts at all different price points and styles..

                       
Finally, I brought the navy back to focus by wearing my navy and white BP. Wedges from Nordstrom! These are last seasons, so here is a similar option that are 60% off!
XXOO,
Nicole
