There are two things I love about this kind of work look: mixing brown and gray (one of my favorite color combos) and adding a trendy shoe to an otherwise traditional outfit. These shoes in particular are one of my favorite pairs in my closet. I found them at Ross two years ago after admiring them at a department store for triple the price. I love the style of the shoe, but I also can't help but love them extra because finding them cheap was so satisfying!
Which leads me to an exciting announcement. I am partnering with Ross for a year-long Secrets of a Bargain Hunter campaign with 7 other bloggers. I can't wait to start shopping and sharing my best finds and tips for bargain hunting. Starting with these nuggets: did you know that Ross is the nation’s largest off-price apparel and home fashion chain? (More stores means more buying power so they get the best stuff.) As for how their prices stay so low, Ross is purposely no frills. You won't find any mannequins, window displays or decor because that means even bigger savings for you (makes total sense, but I never really thought about it that way).
Right now Ross is hosting a "Step into Spring" promotion on their social media channels. Each week they highlight shoe finds and give away a $200 Ross gift card. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram to participate. For now... some of my favorite Ross inspiration below. Let the bargain hunting begin!
