Discovering my Wild Side

I’m so excited to partner with Dixie Outlet Mall for another “She Who Hunts Finds” blogger campaign. In our Spring collaboration, I found my forever favorite pink dress. This time round, I was on the hunt for an amazing fall outfit.

Sunglasses: ALDO / Jeans: Aeropostale / Heels: Bandolino (similar) / Scarf: Call It Spring (similar) / Clutch: Call It Spring (similar)

I started by taking the “Discover Your Wild Side” Quiz to find out what my shopping persona is – apparently I’m a peacock! Click over and take the quiz – leave me a comment telling me which animal you got!

Although I love bargain-hunting…I never buy something just because it’s inexpensive. Whether I pay full-price or clearance, I always choose versatile pieces that I can wear repeatedly. And I have to say – I’m in love with EVERY aspect of my outfit. From the classic denim to the metallic aviators and leopard print scarf, each piece is a fall staple!

I knew from my last shopping challenge that I would find amazing
deals at Dixie Outlet Mall. But this time around – EVERY time I checked out, I would ask “Seriously???” when I was told the balance – I couldn’t believe how crazy low the prices were. Look at the breakdown and let me know if you agree with me:

I think some of my craziest finds were: the leopard scarf for $7, the envelope clutch for $5 and dark-rinse denim for $27! Since I had a complete outfit for under $150, I picked up another pair of shoes and some jewelry that I’ll share in my next post.

I also discovered two new favorites during this shopping trip: Aeropostale jeans fit me PERFECTLY – both the cut and the length – I’ll
be buying a lot of denim from here. And the Bandolino brand
of shoes at Nine West were a revelation…the soles were cushioned and
the design was so comfortable – it felt like I was wearing flats. I’d
love to wear heels more often, so I’ll definitely be exploring this

Hope you enjoyed my bargain shopping haul. Check back soon because I’ll be giving away a $200 Dixie Outlet Mall giftcard so that you can Discover Your Wild Side and get a new Fall Outfit too!

Have you done any fall shopping recently? Let me know what you bought!

      LOL!!! I think it's the sunglasses and beanie – ha ha! It felt different wearing mirrored aviators – but it was fun for a change 😉
