Our local mall made some big changes since my last visit a couple months ago! For starters, Macy's now has something called Macy's Backstage on the second floor. It is merchandised and priced similarly as TJ Maxx. I did a quick walk through and this embroidered coverup was calling my name. (So cute and looks 10x more expensive than what I paid.) Another big change - where the Limited used to be (sad face) is now a co-op of local artisans, how neat! Many of you said you were more focused on shopping local and pretty much everyone expressed that they were on a budget in my recent post about mall brands struggling, so both of these changes make a whole lot of sense! My other purchases were a straw tote (on my wish list for ages and finally found the perfect one), as well as the tassel charm I added to the bag and can be used for other things as well. I'm ready for another pool day, stat!
