Have I Told You Lately That I Love You (TJ Maxx)?

I had a major Maxx Moment yesterday at my home base (TJ Maxx).


The coat/jacket was $30 and the rain boots were $40.

Yes, I realize the coat has an odd patent leather belt... but for $30, I'll find something else. Or just remove it completely.

The only thing stressing me out is that the boots are a size 8 and feel big. I tried on the 7's in the store and they were a bit snug but felt fine.

Do rubber boots stretch? Not so much? The size 8 just feels baggy. And of course my dad (the foot expert due to his many foot surgeries) says if I get the 7 he is throwing me out on the streets.

Because I have this bad habit of buying all my shoes too small.

Be honest.. do I look like a weird gogo dancer in the boots??

I know, my life is hard.

Speaking of which... I gotta run. Back to TJ Maxx. I didn't even have a chance to look at the clothes and there was a ton of clearance.

Bye bye wallet.

Anybody else been TJ Maxxing lately??

That is all.

maybe try inserts? don't exchange them for the 7's. I have a pair of rainboots that are a tad small and I HATE wearing them.

Adorable coat! And I love the rain boots too!

mrs.mfc said...

SOOOOO cute!!! I need to check out my local TJMaxx!

Mrs. Jones said...

Ahhhh, love! I desperately need to go, but I need to wait until after this Friday. Sigh. LOVE your outfit!

R said...

LOVE the coat. And while the boots do scream a little 1970's, I still would rock them.

The Ratpack said...

Cutest outfit ever! I'm in LOVE with the boots! I will be praying for rain so you can wear them all the time!

When I went yesterday to TJ MAXX, I told Ryan "Come with me. I promise, I'm going straight to the shoes and then leaving." That was a lie. I found an awesome bench wit storage for my living room that we are going back to get later this week! :)

I always forget about TJ Maxx, but now they will forever be on my radar!

I love both of your purchases! I saw those katespade boots a couple of months ago when they were still $80. I'm so jealous you got them for $40.

You make me want check out my TJMaxx immediately, although my wallet does not agree...

Joanna said...

I have always loved TJMaxx.. especially their shoe section, and all the great sales are going on right now! I picked up a pair of Tahari boots recently.. originally 200.. I got them for 29!!

Love your purchases, you look adorable!

Too big is better than too small! I went to Marshall's yesterday and found a $230 BCBG dress on clearance for $30!!! Woohoo!!!

Jenn said...

Umm...love them both! You always find such cute things there...all I find is shit :(

Haley said...

The boots might look gogo with another attire, but definitely not this one. Too cute! And if you have a habit of buying shoes too small I would keep the 8's, you can always wearing fluffy socks to take up some room.

I love TJ Maxx, unfortunately the past several times I've gone has been a living nightmare. Nothing that I find cute fits right and highlights all the wrong parts of a womans figure. I'm starting to think I need therapy from the past to horrific experiences I've encountered there. :(

I have ZERO patience with shopping at TJ Maxx, and I really wish I did! Love your finds :)

Piper Jacquelyn said...

AH! The boots are SO cute. Not go-go at all. Just super fun. I love them, what a great find!

Tressa Mae said...

Cute rain boots, I have been wanting to invest in a pair but dont want to spend the money on the hunter boots! I wonder if my TJ Maxx will have them!

erin said...

They look cute together! I swear that coat looks a lot like one you already purchased a few months back from Target. I think it was you anyway...maybe I'm wrong but I know you also love Target!

Emily said...

adorable!!!! and the recipe below looks amazing!!

Brown Girl said...

So cute! I love the jacket and boots!

Michelle said...

tj maxx gives me heart palpitations and not because it's chock full of great deals, but because i get too damn overwhelmed when i walk in the door!

the same thing happens at marshalls & ross.

i need someone to hold my hand & guide me through the store...any takers?!

p.s. cute jacket/boot combo!!

Annabel Manners said...

Super cute! Are those boots Kate Spade? I remember a pink pair from last year... As for sizing, it's probably best to get a pair that fits. Otherwise they'll just sit and be cute in your closet. :)

Holly said...

I really like that outfit too! I think the boots are cute, and if they feel too big, buy some thick socks and wear them inside them. :)

Gwen said...

Too cute!!! I love the boots. I haven't been to TJ Maxx since I'm trying not to spend a bunch of money but I may have to go over there today. :) XOXO

Mrs. Smith said...

Love the jacket!

I'm a total tjmaxx addict. LOVE it! I've gotten some amazing deals there over the years. Customer for life.
