Ready for Spring with A&F

February 27, 2017

Spring feels like it is just around the corner and I’m super excited to not have to bundle up in my puff coat! To get started on some spring looks, I’ve teamed up with Abercrombie to show you a few different outfits from their new collection. Earlier this month I had the opportunity to check out Abercrombie’s new store design at Polaris Fashion Place and see more of their vision for the future of the company. Their new clothing collection definitely aligns with the trendy, comfortable, and eye-catching design in stores.

Below I’ve put together 3 looks with 3 different style jeans and all are Abercrombie!! I’m loving all the different style jeans that they now offer, whether you are a skinny jean gal or more into the high waisted flare, they got it. A&F has a variety of tops that look great with whatever style jean you choose to try. For the loose or boyfriend fit jeans, I try to go with a more form-fitting top and then I add a little bit of height with heels or booties. Adding a belt also helps to accentuate your waist and brings in your silhouette.

A&F provides customers with those hot/in style pieces like the silk bomber jacket and cropped flare jeans, but also with the basics to help you pair them all together. I’m pretty obsessed with the bomber jacket..I might just have to get it in all the colors HA! Enjoy!

The New Abercrombie and Fitch

February 17, 2017

Last night I had the honor of checking out Abercrombie and Fitch’s brand new store design, and let me tell you…it is totally worth seeing! The entrance of the store is welcoming, bright and has that open concept feel. Walking around the store, you really got a warm and inviting attitude from the employees. The racks were free standing and the clothing was beautifully displayed.

One of my favorite parts about the new design were their dressing rooms. Don’t you hate going to a store and having to awkwardly step out onto the sales floor to show your friend how the jeans fit? Well, here you get your own private dressing room with your friends! The dressing rooms are set up so you have a space to get your friend’s opinion and have more of a private shopping experience. Once you enter the dressing room, there is a nook for your belongs and clothes. Up in the corner, you’ll find a ledge with chargers for both iPhones AND Androids and a control pad that allows you to pick the lighting.

We have all experienced poor fitting room lighting and it really discourages you from wanting to buy anything, with the A&F dressing rooms you can pick from 4 different settings: Standard, Fireside, Radiant Sun, and Night Owl and then you can adjust the brightness. I mean, how cool is that?! I had to check out all 4 settings with each outfit I tried on, just to see how my romper might look at night time or by a firepit 😀

I’m excited to see A&F launch the next chapter in their brand and create new experiences for shoppers in the store. The grand opening of the store is today, February 17th, at Polaris Fashion Place and is a must see! You know you want to check out those sweet dressing rooms. 😉

Valentine’s Day at Polaris Fashion Place

February 8, 2017

I’ve teamed up with Polaris Fashion Place to give you my Valentine’s day look and a couple of ideas for how you can spend the day with loved ones. Whether your loved ones are family and friends or a special someone, Valentine’s day is about being with who you love and having a good time.

The outfit that I put together for you guys is for a daytime date. It is more casual, comfortable for walking around and shopping, and has that pop of pink, just for fun ;).  The pop of pink, is my sweater from Banana Republic. It is a super warm mock neck sweater that is currently on sale! Paired with a necklace and an Express navy leather jacket. Express has this jacket in black and navy, but I thought I’d switch it up with the navy. Yes, I’m wearing white jeans in the winter, and I don’t care! These J.Crew high rise white jeans are a staple piece. Even though they are white, I always feel like white jeans add color to an outfit.

I’m also currently obsessed with this matte lipstick from Mac. I’ve accepted that bright red lipstick just doesn’t work for me, so this was the perfect shade of red and purple to give me bold Valentine’s day lips.

A day full of shopping at Polaris Fashion Place can get tiring, so my suggestion would be to head to California Pizza Kitchen, which happens to be one of my favorites, grab the Thai Peanut Crunch Salad and a glass or two of Pinot Noir.

Here are some other ideas to do while at Polaris:

  • A fun alternative is a chocolate and wine pairing at Bliss in a Bottle.
  • Grab a coffee from Starbucks, find a bench and enjoy creating fun stories about the other shoppers you see.
  • Chow down on delicious eats and grab a drink, then show your competitive side as you go head-to-head playing arcade games at Dave & Buster’s.
  • Enjoy relaxing together during a spa treatment at LK Salon or Nail Pro.
  • Pick out clothes for each other at Banana Republic, J. Crew, Brooks Brothers and the Gap.
  • Find a sexy scent you both like at Bath & Body Works, Lush, Aveda
  • Try out rings together at Kay, Farah, Andrews or Ashcroft & Oak Jewelers.
  • For an extra special gift, select something at La Senza or Victoria’s Secret.

While you are enjoying Valentine’s day shopping at Polaris, don’t forget to head to guest services to enter to win two contests currently going on. The Perfect Date Night, valued at $500, has your perfect date already planned, you would get tickets to the Ohio Theater, restaurant gift card, hotel room, and much more. Hurry this contest ends tonight at 11:59pm ET. The second contest to check out is Love Ties, supporting Salvation Army.

No matter what kind of Valentine’s day you are looking for, Polaris has plenty of options for all types of dates!
