TJ Maxx & Marshalls Summer Trends Review

In Florida, where the summer heat is always rising, it can be a challenge to put together the right summer look. Don’t make the same mistake that I did and spend over $100 on a swim suit. Instead, I suggest heading to TJ Maxx and Marshalls to check out their fantastic and affordable summer collections. I was thrilled at the chance to review the summer styles at TJ Maxx and Marshalls at our Orlando area locations. Both stores offer high quality, brand name merchandise for amazingly affordable prices. What I like best about shopping at TJ Maxx and Marshalls is that the selection changes constantly so there is always a new treasure to discover.

On this shopping trip, my goal was to complete a summer look for under $50. I was amazed to find such high quality brands including Ralph Lauren, Speedo, Born, Clarks, Juicy Couture and much more. I noticed many comparable swim suits to the one that I had already purchased for over $100 for a mere fraction of the cost (sigh..I will have to remember that next year).  After having three children in three years, it is also important for me to look my best as I get back into pre-pregnancy shape. Therefore, a good cover-up is a must. I was thrilled with the selection of over 20 cover ups in my size to choose from. I decided on a pretty and feminine dress cover-up that was over 60% off the retail listed price. I also scored a pair leather Naturalizer sandals on clearance for $18 from the original price of $60. To complete my look, I selected a Panama Jack Insulated tote bag that is perfect for carrying juice boxes and water to the pool or the beach for only $7.99. All together the entire look came to $48.17!  Who says you can’t be stylish AND save big money at the same time.

I highly suggest checking out the affordable treasures at your TJ Maxx and Marshalls to see what is new for the season. I would love to see you put together your own summer look too!
