Shopping Tips

If you have cool summer coloring like me, this is a great time to shop the sales.



Sweet Mr. Mickey took me down to Sevierville to shop in the huge Tangier Outlet Mall there on Saturday. 



This is the palette of colors that look best with my own coloring. These colors are most often sold in the summer months so that is when I do the bulk of my shopping for clothes. I dress in light weight layers for most of the year so this formula works for me.

Do you study your own coloring to guide you in finding what looks best on you? There are now several different programs that help you to identify your best colors, such as the original Color Me Beautiful system. Do a Google search for color analysis and you will get several results. Knowing exactly what colors look best on you makes shopping and getting dressed so much easier.




Earlier last week I found this Coach bag at the outlet in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. It was priced $428 but after the sale and another discount they were offering that day, I got it for $119.99! I like this bag because it is a smaller size and a neutral color. I also like it because the logo is so small. I do not care for items emblazoned with logos. 




The sandals are by Bjorndal from Rack Room Shoes. I found these on the same shopping trip.
  
I also purchased great fitting ankle pants in several colors at Chico's in the Blowing Rock outlet mall along with a couple of jackets and tank tops last week.


 
The dress is by Dana Buchman from Khol's.

As the temperatures have started to climb into the 90's I am embracing low sandals with light weight sleeveless dresses. Sometimes comfort takes precedence over looking your best. I did take a navy blue shrug sweater and higher heeled neutral sandals to wear to dinner on Saturday but it was never cool enough to require the shrug.

Thank you for reading. 
Good luck with your sale shopping this week!
