J.Crew Factory Back to School Haul

Believe it or not, teachers are headed back to school next week! Of course, we start a week before the kiddies, but summer has officially come and gone. It's a bittersweet moment, really. The daytime activities, lunching out and about, and general laziness must come to a halt, but in all, a lot of us are ready to get back into a routine. 

This time every year, I make a trip to the J.Crew Factory outlet to pick up a few basics for back to school, and with 50% off nearly everything in the store, this was my weekend to scoop up anything and everything I could. And ladies and gentleman, it was a success! I was able to get 1 sweater, 2 cardigans, 1 pair of jeans, 1 pair of navy pants, 1 pair of earrings, 2 pairs of shoes, and an umbrella (for those afternoon showers that inevitably happen just as the buses are called)...all for the low low price of $175. Seriously! That's an average of less than $20 per item - which includes tax! Win!

I will say that I had to resist grabbing a few things that I knew I wouldn't be able to wear just yet. Like this which I have in navy from last season and literally wore two to three times per week. And I am still in dire need of an every day blazer that I can toss over anything from a tee shirt to a top. Has anyone tried this one from the factory store?

Whew - I feel better about my wardrobe already. Between my trip this weekend and my 10 under $50 picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, I'd say that I'm almost set for the fall! Almost.

Didn't get a chance to see my Nordstorm picks? That's a part of my new Instagram only content using Like to Know It (which I explained here). Be sure to click over to and sign up, so you can get everything sent straight to your inbox! 



  1. Sounds like you are all set for the next season! Happy Monday!

    1. I wouldn't say ALL set, but I am getting there! After all, I still need a reason to shop ;)
