‘Get in Loser, We’re Going Shopping’ | Woodfield Mall

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting one of my favorite malls outside Chicago — Woodfield in Schaumburg. It’s about 30 minutes from the city, and it’s the perfect way to escape the city chaos! Each year, my girlfriends get together and shop here every Black Friday! It’s a tradition we’ve kept alive for 8+ years! (I know, we’re crazy!) It’s always such a fun time, and you better believe I get an Auntie Annie’s pretzel Guilty pleasure, what up!? (It’s seriously the little things in this life of mine!) Woodfield is a one-stop-shop for fashion, fitness, and beyond — They seriously have everything! You can view the full directory here. (Including current deals).

Today, Woodfield Mall is picking one lucky winner for an all-inclusive vacation in Riviera Maya, Mexico (Valued at $19,380 — details in the link). Insert 20 dancing emojis here, because I’m so ready for some fun in the sun! What does it take?! Simply sign up for the FREE Simon Rewards Loyalty Program. (download the app here) and reward yourself for shopping it out! Earn points for using the app, checking in, and get rewarded. You can even win prizes instantly depending on the day! (Oh, how I heart free stuff!) Don’t worry, there’s no ‘catch’ — and you won’t be drowning in annoying emails (the worst!). So, what’s my role in all this?! I’m helping you choose some cute resort wear for Mexico! (Remember: What happens in Mexico, stays in Mexico — Sorry, having a Laguna Beach moment). After searching through Zara, Vera Bradley, Altar’d State & Nordstrom; (OK, and like 10,000 other stores) I finally chose a winner! Drum roll please …





Free people, you’ve done it again. I always frequent Nordstrom for affordable trendy pieces, and this one is no exception! Care-free, boho-chic, and beyond comfortable! That leaves more room for tacos and margaritas — muy importante. I paired with an adorable Zara bucket bag, and lace-up sandals. Don’t forget your cute floppy hat for those lazy beach days! Tell me below: What would you bring?! xx

  • I’ve been lusting over that specific dress for the past month, it is so boho chic. You look 100% adorable, I love the way you styled this whole look!

  • Kristine Circenis

    This dress is super boho, summer chic. I’ve only been to Woodfield a number of times because it’s quite a long drive from the city, which is a shame because they have some great stores!

  • Kayleigh

    Such a cute dress! I love that bucket bag!

  • Savannah Ward

    This is honestly one of the prettiest dresses I’ve seen. Love your yellow bag!


  • Such an awesome collaboration… the ensemble you chose for this getaway is PERFECT… love the dress and the sandals!!

    Woodfield Mall is awesome. I’m more of an online shopper (serrrrriously, girl, errrr single day! Lol). However, I do like in-person shopping now and again, and I’m such a fan of the LUSH store, and Since I’m out in the ‘burbs, the nearest one to me is…Woodfield! Now, I haven’t yet had dinner and am craaaving an Auntie Annie’s pretzel… cinnamon sugar coated, puuuhlease!
