5 Stores To Find Your Affordable Girl Boss Attire

This article is for every twenty-something college girl that I know who is officially entering into the ~work world~ this Summer and Fall and is in need of a serious change in wardrobe. If you're anything like me, you're really excited about the change from dressing like you just took a nap (because you probably did) and heading to class and excited for this change in pace. But, business casual clothes can be ridiculously expensive and no college girl can afford that. Here are five of my favorite stores that I find all of my favorite, afforable, business casual outfits.

5 Stores To Find Your Affordable Girl Boss Attire

1. T.J. Maxx - deals on deals on deals.


If you don't already know that T.J. Maxx is the best, you are totally missing out. This store is one of my absolute favorite go to's for those random pieces of clothing (like business clothes) that you don't want to spend a fortune on. They always have the best deals on trendy styles that make you feel like you're getting your money's worth. I linked the website above, but make sure you shop in store - the deals are WAY better on the shelf.

2. H&M - trendy & chic all at a low price. 

Work Clothes & Formal Clothes | Modern Classics | H&M US


H&M has everything you need to be an all around girl boss from basic tops to stylish accessories. Their prices are super reasonable and I can always find something when I walk into the store whether it be a basic work pant or an on trend floral top for the summer. They even have a new modern's classic feature on their website right now that I am absolutely loving! Check it out in the link above!

3. Old Navy - not just a store for your mother.


Okay, yes, stay with me. I know I just said Old Navy and you're probaby thinking, huh? No way. Well, believe it or not, they are in the Gap family of brands and they do a great job at offering similar trendy styles at a more affordable price. I always find I score more with Old Navy when I shop online - their store isn't always the easiest to navigate. If you shop online, don't forget to check out their clearance -- it's always where i find the best stuff!

4. Forever 21 - the girl boss version of Dig & Save.


I will be the first to admit that Forever 21 can be such a hit or miss. There store is often a MESS and you definitely have to be willing to spend some time searching when you walk through those doors. But, that's what bargain shopping is all about right!? If you aren't willing to spend the time in store, their website has just as much to offer & pretty low shipping costs. I always find the most random, yet perfect pieces from here for next to nothing when I spend enough time looking. Totally worth it!

5. Loft - the ultimate girl boss store (when there's a sale)

Loft is one of my absolute favorite stores to shop for business casual clothes that look and make you feel like the ultimate girl boss. BUT - there's a catch! It can be on the mid to high end of expensive for a college girl budget, but no worries - you just have to know how and when to shop there. My first tip for loft is NEVER buy full price. They have sales all the time and their website is always full of clearance items. Second, check out if there is a Loft Outlet near you and the price tags will match more of what you're looking for.

I hope this article sparks the bargain loving girl boss in you to go out and find some killer looks for whatever new job venture you may be on or headed towards. It's my first summer working as a marketing intern and I've loved having trendy styles from these stores to really feel like the ultimate girl boss. Comment below if you want links to specific products or deals from my favorite places!

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
