Cato Fashions.

Sunday, July 12, 2015

Let's preface this post with a little disclaimer.. I'm not a fashion blogger, I don't claim to be, and it was painfully awkward to walk around the resort in Mexico taking 'fashion blogger' photos, but I think CL and I pulled it off!

I had never shopped at Cato Fashions. I'd seen the stores, and never walked in.. and now I literally don't know why I waited so long! With a brand spankin' new store location in Dallas and one right by my house, Cato will definitely be on my list now! Now, I know you probably had some preconceived notions about this brand, as did I, but seriously, don't judge a book by it's cover. They tend to be in shopping centers near a Wal-Mart, but seriously. This experience made me a believer! I always thought this was a store for older ladies and it was a cheesey place to shop, and I'm so happy that this idea I had made up in my head was completely untrue! I'm always looking for a new place to shop and i've definitely added Cato to the list. I'm even still thinking about this chic green dress that I seriously need to go back and get!

Cato Fashions is a leading retailer of women's fashions and accessories. At Cato you’ll find the latest fashion styles for any occasion, work or play, dressy or casual in junior/misses and plus sizes at exceptional prices.

The new store is beautiful and has great light and the women that work there want you to have a great experience. I tend to like to shop without anyone bothering me, and they let me run around and pull 90,000 different pieces with no question. They even let me take all my selections into the dressing room! It was a blissful experience!

Cato has junior and misses and plus sizes, so it's really a great place for everyone to shop. The clothes are a great quality (think Forever 21 prices with department store quality!) I was shocked at how cute and on trend all the clothing was-- maxi dresses, kimonos, rompers, statement necklaces, shoes, accessories, jeans and tops galore. 

And the best thing? THE PRICES. Y'all. I can't talk enough about how budget friendly these clothes are! I usually start in the clearance or sale section because i'm cheap frugal smart on a budget, and I didn't even have to. I didn't see many regular priced items over $30 (excluding denim and some dresses) I'm talking $8 shorts, $12 kimonos, and a $13 romper in the clearance section.. $13!! 

I was looking for some fun items to take with me on my trip to Mexico and Cato didn't disappoint. 

This romper has quickly become my favorite summer piece. Not only was it super cute, but it fit nicely and had the cutest button detailing on the back. It was the perfect find!

This skirt is seriously one of my favorite new items in my closet. The color is great for the summer and fall, and the crochet is so on trend for the summer. The best part? It fit, it was on clearance, and it made me feel chic and beautiful. I can't wait to wear it again.. maybe with a denim jacket? The possibilities are endless!

I also picked up this stack of bracelets and earrings- all for under $10! The bangles are a larger size too so you don't have to squish your hands to get them on! I love how versatile they are too- I pulled the blue ones out and wore just the gold one night and they were perfect!

Also, out of no where i'm a super fan of any type of casual, cotton pajama bottoms shorts for summer.. I  have no less than 4 pairs, and I was so happy to add these to the mix! Perfect for running errands, hanging out with Beckett or out on the lake. Plus they have pockets! Holla! All you need is a tank and your set!
