Hi there loves! I will be partnering with Westfield to bring to you a really fun shopping experience. If you are like me, it takes at least one big trip to the mall to begin to feel the anticipation of the Holidays! This trip put me directly into “go find all the deals” mode for my gifts.
Westfield Montgomery is located directly off the Beltway in Bethesda, its very easy to get to. My first trick for shopping at a mall is to park in the same place each time. (I’ve been lost too many times!) So when I go here, I always park right outside Nordstrom. From there I know where each store is and I can plan my day easily.
The store I want to touch on today!?? (are you ready……) Are!:
The Aroma Café!
Janie and Jack.
Bath and Body Works
First, hit up the Aroma Café to get you right into the holiday mood. Festive drinks, delicious food and the service was absolutely amazing. I met up with some friends, sat and relaxed and took in the sites and smells of the mall from our quiet little corner before conquering all the stores on my “must visit” list.
Aldo. Can we just talk about options please? Here at Aldo I was able to wrangle gifts for three people on my list. My mom, Lilah, and I’m including myself on this list. (because #stockings!) I wont tell you what I got for whom, but earrings, a GLITTER SPARKLE pink purse and shoe accessories. They are basically clip-on earrings for the tops of the toes on your heels. Yes. Stop. Now. Run and grab some. You can thank me later.
THEN! Stuart Weitzman stopped me in my tracks with Tonya on our way to Nordstrom. They have the most beautiful winter pieces right now. And oh, the fur! They have these boots… with the fur…. Darling booties with multi-colored fur that you will just drool over. Can I also just say, when the customer service is above and beyond I’m ALWAYS thankful. This place knows how to treat their customers.
Nordstrom! Oh my goodness loves. Just two words: Gift baskets. You know Nordstrom doesn’t play when it comes to variety, quality and customer service. They have everything laid out by section: Women’s. Men’s. Kids. Makeup. Just head to that part of the store and they will blow your minds with the options of pre-packaged gifts. It will give you a break from having to worry about all the details. The best part of this? It’s all AMAZING products. Dry Bar. Bobbie Brow. Clarins. Clinique. The list literally goes on and on.
Janie and Jack. This is hands-down one of my all time favorite children’s stores. Tiny little grown up clothes that I can almost not live without. You’ll see what I mean. Photos of the kids say it all.
For stocking stuffers?? You need to hit up the two store of my dreams. They have stocking stuffers, gifts for the IMPOSSIBLE people on your list and at Francescas they have the cutest and funnies Christmas sweaters for all of your holiday sweater parties. We are hosting one next week so of course I grabbed some for me. I’ll be rocking a gingerbread one next week! I can’t even wait. And let Bath and Body Works make your home smell more than inviting! Just. Do. It.
K so I’ll be finishing this up with Michael Kors. If you have never shopped his Holiday line? Stop right now and look it up. He goes all out and makes the most amazing dresses, shoes, bags, coats and accessories for every single party you will be attending or hosting. I left there with a disco sequined golden dress that is fitted with bell sleeves. That was one of my favorite finds of the year. It is stunning.
THEY ALSO HAVE A SANTA! Yes. That’s right! Get in there before the line is long! He looks amazing, great beard and the costume is perfect. They did such a great job on the photo there as well.
