Holiday Style for the Family

Fashion

Released 11/26/19

 

With Thanksgiving and Christmas and all the festive, family celebrations in between, it’s a fun time of year for you and yours to look the very best … and look good together! Whether your dinners and parties provide lots of photo opportunities, or if you’re planning professional photos for your holiday cards this year, we put together a stylish, cohesive palette to dress the whole crew this holiday season. Featuring popular boots, pleasing color combinations, and some of the hottest trends for every member of your family, we’ve got you Instagram-ready for the holidays! 

 

TIPS FOR CREATING A COORDINATING VIBE FOR YOUR FAMILY’S OUTFITS

Step 1: Pick a common color to feature in every outfit and don’t go overboard with it. We picked fall’s hottest take on red — a rich maroon — and gave everyone just one piece or two with the accent color to avoid looking “matchy-matchy”. 

Step 2: Stick with individuals’ style. For example, we dressed up mom and dad, but kept the kids comfy.

Step 3: Work in a unique trend for each person and don’t overthink it! We gave each family member a signature “pop” of style from the season’s hottest trendspotting! 

Step 4: Keep it practical. We love the boot trend so we dressed up a super-practical footwear idea for every member of the family, and focused on individual pieces everyone can keep in their wardrobe for the rest of the winter!  

 

DAPPER DAD

Dad’s burgundy color makes an appearance as soft, rich maroon corduroy pants and for his trend focus, we dressed up his black hiking boots and casual layers with a tweed blazer.

On Ryan: jewel-toned cotton plaid button-front oxford, oatmeal quarter-zip lightweight sweater, black and grey tweed blazer, maroon corduroy pants, all from Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Outlet; black steel grommet lace-up hiking boots from Off Broadway Shoes

 

CHIC MOM

Mom’s burgundy is anything but basic with sleek and shiny wellington boots and an ultra soft lightweight layering sweater. Her signature trend for the season is an upscale camel and cheetah combo! 

On Robin: classic crewneck sweater, soft cotton sweater blazer, wool blend pencil skirt, opaque black tights, oversize cheetah print blanket scarf, all from J. Crew Factory Outlet; Walker Atlantic wellington boots in oxblood by Sperry at Off Broadway Shoes; pave stacked cuff gold bracelet, gold fringe bib necklace, maroon beaded necklace, faceted maroon and pave stud earrings from Francesca’s

 

COZY KIDS

Big brother is keeping it chill in relaxed and comfy staples with just a hint of maroon in his layered shirts. His style focus this season is the hit puffer vest and duck boots.

On Zachary: warm camel skinny chinos, maroon and navy plaid button-down oxford, navy, beige and maroon fairy isle sweater, navy blue puffer vest, all from  J. Crew Factory Outlet; navy and brown Brewster waterproof duck boots by Sperry from Off Broadway Shoes.

Little sister is ready for after-dinner snuggles in her soft and flowy maroon top. Her pop of style comes from metallic rose gold accents, sherpa, and faux fur–a big hit this holiday season for any age! 

On Mia: burgundy empire waist blouse with metallic rose gold embroidered details, faux fur vest, coral pink ballerina jeggings, all from Old Navy; camel sherpa boots with bow detailing by Koolaburra by Ugg at Off Broadway Shoes.

Holiday Gift Guide Part 1

News

Released 11/20/19

 

The season of giving is right around the corner and as a warm-up, we did some light shopping to help you start knocking names off your list early, starting with some of the hardest-to-buy-for folks with sure-to-please ideas that will fit any budget or giving reason!

 

COMFORT AND JOY (1)

From Francesca’s: Self-care treats including a variety of facemasks, candles, bath bombs, espresso cup and cozy socks, which would be cute in a gift basket or broken up into smaller gifts — perfect for stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, teacher gifts, or small sentiments for the moms of your kids’ friends. 

 

NOTE-WORTHY HOLIDAY GIFTS (2 & 4) 

From Books-A-Million: 2020 planners, stylish notebooks, fun pens and colored pencils — great for teachers, tutors, stylists, service industry pros, creatives, and anyone you know who likes putting pen to paper! 

 

HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS (3, 5 & 9) 

From HomeGoods: Endless options for your favorite host or hostess, a first-impression gift for new friends and family members, or the best way to show your favorite foodie some love this holiday season. Here are some gift sets we put together from HomeGoods… 

For the Chef: Variety of serving dishes and platters, including a beautiful marble tray with gold handles, a handsome walnut wooden platter, darling snowflake ramekins, and  a cookie plate for Santa.

Charcuterie Starter Kit: Hostess basket with a marble serving board, cheese knives, wooden serving spoons, coasters, artisanal olive oil, hot & spicy garlic oil, wildflower honey, apricot jam and mixed pepper seasoning.

Stock the Bar: A cocktail set with an ice bucket, moscow mule mugs and cocktail tools.

 

CROWD PLEASERS (6)

From AMC: movie tickets are a big hit because they’re consumable and allow any recipient to choose their own adventure! Tuck these in a thoughtful card or in the wrapper of your friend’s favorite full-size candy bar — a terrific idea for teachers, bus drivers, caregivers, parents, and your favorite movie buff! 

 

SWEET GESTURES (7)

From Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory: a variety of gourmet truffles in a holiday tin, either customized to the preference of your recipient or pre-selected for ultimate variety and delicacy. We love giving these specialty chocolates — ideal for teachers, hostesses, service workers, and your bestie who loves good chocolate with her dry red. 

 

ALL THAT GLITTERS (8)

From Kate Spade: Dazzling giftables from their winter collection, including a large slate blue flap continental wallet and matching tumbler, small sparkly silver bifold wallet, a classic pyramid studded Kate Spade key fob or signature spade logo keychain, and a maroon velvet makeup bag that is new in-store. In a wide range of price points, these designer ideas are perfect for stylish Secret Santas, fab grab bags, or a little something for your favorite stylist! 

 

Pro Tip: It’s the thought that counts! Start now with your expansive list of well-deserving friends, family members, professionals, etc., and get them a little something that says you’re thinking of them during the holiday season. Small, affordable gifts are easy to stock up on and tuck away until you need them. Trust me, you’ll be thankful when you don’t have to rush around looking for something to give a teacher or bring to the party you completely forgot about (oops!)

Halloween Outfits for All

Fashion

Released 10/21/19

 

Halloween is just around the corner, but don’t be scared! We have some great ideas that work with what you have in your wardrobe to build upon for the cutest — or creepiest — looks this season! Look to pop culture and current trends for your inspiration and start with wardrobe basics that you can re-wear after the trick-or-treating is over. From there, head to Spirit Halloween at Legends for your novelty and licensed apparel and accessories to complete your costume!

 

From littles to bigs, who doesn’t love the glittery magic of unicorns right now?! We started with some super trendy basics from our friends at Justice, incorporated some cold weather pieces (in case the weather gets crazy), and then added on some fun, whimsical accessories to complete this look. 

On Stella: watercolor athletic leggings, “totally magical” tee, sherpa zip-up with rose gold accents, and glitter fur-lined snow boots – all from Justice; unicorn headband with horn, hair and matching tail, fuzzy unicorn cuffs, unicorn wings, and sparkly unicorn makeup palette – all from Spirit Halloween.

 

You can never go wrong with this creepy classic! Start with dressy staples from your closet, and don’t be afraid to layer with sweaters in gothic colors like dark red or bold purple to add warmth for cool nights. From there, darkened eyes, white cheeks and even some blood around the mouth make a scary-good costume for any age! 

On Kaulib: skinny black chinos, white oxford button-down shirt, red shawl collar sweater, and leather sneakers from Old Navy; collared vampire cape, top hat, vampire brooch, vampire staff, plastic vampire fangs, and darkening eye makeup, all from Spirit Halloween. Note: we skipped the blood for a daytime, school-friendly look, but don’t forget to add it for serious trick-or-treating! 

 

Even today, Harry Potter is all the rage and we are still here for it! Whether you’re a die-hard Slytherin, or just a fan of wizardry, the sky’s the limit when it comes to the cool costume options for this pop culture phenomenon. We started with a preppy look to mimic the Hogwarts school uniform, then layered on licensed Harry Potter accessories to complete this smart ensemble. Pro tip: start by choosing your house, and build your color palette from there. We chose a classic — Gryffindor — and had a blast with the red and gold color scheme for this look. 

On Alexa: red chinos, white button-down oxford, and sweet ballet flats from Polo Ralph Lauren Outlet; striped necktie, letterman’s cardigan, round eyeglasses, magic wand, and deluxe Gryffindor robe, all from Spirit Halloween

 

NASA is having a moment and we are loving the empowered, intelligent, and creative S.T.E.M. message it’s sending to kids. With tons of logo apparel and tech-inspired wardrobe options, kids of any age will enjoy wearing their NASA costume pieces long after the candy stash has been depleted. We started with athletic and tech style basics, then added logo accessories to make this ultra-easy costume ready in a flash!

On Juston: cargo joggers, white NASA logo tee, NASA logo nylon bomber jacket, NASA logo baseball cap, and high-top sneakers – all from H&M; aviator sunglasses from Spirit Halloween. Bonus: do you have a headphone addict in your midst? Add some tech savvy headwear for extra mission-control vibes! 

 

And, who could forget our favorite four-legged friends?! Stores like T.J. Maxx carry a ton of cute outfit ideas for our best friends, and we couldn’t pass up this banana split costume for Henry! 

Cute and Cozy Pajama Sets

At the end of a long day, there’s nothing better than slipping into something more comfortable. And, these feminine pajamas from Victoria’s Secret are giving us all the feels. The snuggle-approved set is so silky and stylish, you might never take it off (especially with the addition of this super soft robe and cozy throw)!

 

PRACTICAL

Known for the softest cottons around, Jockey dons the perfect pajama staples – great for layering, mixing and matching all season long. You’ll want to do nothing but curl up by the fire in these festive plaid jammies, complete with impossibly cozy fleece bottoms and super soft waffle shirts!

 

LOUNGE-WORTHY 

Not only is this coordinating knit set unbelievably soft, but the subtle stripes are a trendy upgrade to any loungewear. From Netflix to naps, this versatile option from Loft Outlet won’t have you embarrassed to answer the door or talk outside with your neighbors!

 

FESTIVE

Who doesn’t like a little bit of sparkle? Upgrade your traditional sleepwear with something more sophisticated, yet still fun – like this soft navy set from Soma Intimates. The sparkly snowflakes and plush, glittery robe will make every night feel like a slumber party!

Seven Staples to Get You From Fall All the Way Thr...

Fashion

Released 9/26/19

 

Fall is such a fun time of year to update your wardrobe. With the ever-changing weather, each day is a new opportunity to layer and get creative. As the temperatures (finally) start to lower and the nights get cooler, nothing is more exciting than scooping up some transitional pieces that will work through the winter and add some updated colors to your closet! Here are our favorites… 

 

ANYTHING-BUT-BASIC BLAZER

A chic high-quality blazer works perfectly for an early fall outer layer and a tailored look for later in the season. We love the latest colors from Ann Taylor Loft, including this neutral toned glen plaid with tortoise buttons and the classic camel with brass buttons. While it’s warm, cuff the sleeves and wear yours over a camisole with cropped slacks and a breezy open back mule loafer. As temperatures cool, consider pairing your blazer with jeans and a vintage tee or even a fitted cashmere mock-neck sweater and booties! 

 

FUNCTIONAL — AND FASHIONABLE! — SCARVES

What works as an accessory this fall becomes a must-have this winter when you opt for a scarf that mixes trendy prints with cozy construction. We love Forever 21 Red’s huge assortment of fall and winter scarves, which are knitted for maximum warmth, and designed for maximum style. Try a preppy herringbone print like this one to add a sophisticated layer to your work look now, and then wear it with your prettiest pea coat this winter. For extra style points, pair a cheetah print over a light bomber jacket when the fall winds pick up.

 

MOCK TURTLENECK

There’s something so stylish about a fitted mock-turtleneck! From the slimming effect of the long sleeves and high neck to the totally practical warmth they provide, nothing says fall like a turtle! Forever 21 Red has tons including this ribbed mustard mock and this super soft burgundy option! Tuck into a pair of high-waisted skinny or relaxed fit jeans this fall, then add under layers of soft thermals and button-downs this winter. Pro tip for the turtle: try pulling hair back away from your face in a clip or pony and adding a statement earring as a way to elevate this conservative cut!

 

THE ULTIMATE COZY SWEATER

From high-pile knits to ultra soft merino and cashmere influences, and every rib and bauble and weave in between, we are calling 2019-2020 the winter of the sweater. Start now with a lightweight knit in a beautiful fall hue over a pair of light-weight cropped jeans or even a midi skirt! When the weather gets serious, mix your prints by layering any sweater over warm flannel or denim button-down shirts. Francesca’s has a great assortment, including this fun bordeaux and burnt orange cheetah crop, and this adorable beige sweater with heart details on the sleeves.

 

ATHLEISURE 

Athleisure is still having its major moment and we are here for it! I mean, who doesn’t love the idea of being comfortable while actually looking put together at the same time?  Whether you’re actually hitting the gym, running errands or experiencing all the fun activities around town, this look never fails – and it all starts with the leggings. Nike Outlet has a huge selection of leggings and tights that smooth, flatter & stay put; perfect for any marathon — whether it’s a holiday fundraiser run or just Netflixing on the couch!  We love these pumpkin-colored seamless leggings the most. For early fall, top your leggings off with a pullover which will provide all the warmth you need until winter arrives. Then, consider layering your teddy bear soft pullover like this one we got at Express under an all-weather running jacket to complete the look and keep you warm on your way!

 

THE ORIGINAL LAYERING SWEATER + JACKET COMBO

If Tommy Hilfiger didn’t invent the lightweight cable knit sweater, they made it famous with their signature logo on the chest and their rainbow assortment of colors. Each year they change up the look just a little and add fresh new hues to their collection. This year is no exception, and the Tommy Hilfiger Outlet is currently rolling out multiple colors and styles for everyone’s favorite cable. We adore this warm oatmeal hue but you can never go wrong with a pop of color (especially red in Chief’s country, are we right?) Don’t forget to layer with the classic Tommy Hilfiger jean jacket for a timeless fall and winter look. Start with cuffed sleeves and a brightly colored chino and finish the year off with boots, black denim and a fun scarf to enjoy these pieces throughout the seasons!

 

LIGHTWEIGHT LEATHER THAT LASTS

When it comes to fall, nothing is more timeless and trendy at the same time as a staple leather jacket. Wilson’s Leather has a myriad of ultra-high quality leather jackets, including these lightweight options in all the hottest colors, like hunter green, blush pink, and of course, black. For fall, leave unzipped and work the leather alone over a tank or your favorite floral dress. As things chill out, start experimenting with layers underneath to add warmth to your natural wind-breaker. We love the look of a zippered hoodie peeking out the neckline of these sleek styles. A fuzzy sherpa-style jacket can also add unlimited warmth and a soft and cozy balance to your tough exterior. 

 

BOTTOM LINE: Look for all the latest colors in some of your go-to styles to make this fall feel fresh and new. Then as we get closer to the holidays, start piling on the layers! It’s a great way to showcase multiple pieces at a time and it’s truly your best bet against our blustery midwest winter! 

Denim Trends for All this Fall

Fashion

Released 9/23/19

 

For a middle school-friendly denim outfit, look no further than the staple high-waisted skinny jean. And don’t be intimidated! Today’s denim technology features shapewear-like construction and lots of lifting and smoothing features. But for a classic, low-maintenance look for your teen, head to American Eagle, where the super hi-rise cut comes in a ton of washes with lots of great options to wear on top.

 

 

On Kaylin: Super hi-rise skinny jeggings in brilliant blue wash, chartreuse green long-sleeve waffle tee, cozy cropped cheetah print jacket and black heeled boots from Off Broadway Shoes.

 

 

 

 

 

For a slightly more worn-in, grown-up look – stick with the classics!  Levi’s Outlet features all the original denim cuts plus fun new updates and washes that work for today’s modern aesthetic. We love pairing more relaxed cuts with fitted tees to provide a flattering look with a nod to the 90s.

 

 

On Sydney: Levi’s 501 mid-rise light-wash denim with a straight leg, a fitted black and white stripe tee, and a pair of white grunge boots from Off Broadway Shoes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For day-to-night style, go for some of the latest colored denims or super dark washes. We’re loving the rock ‘n’ roll appeal of faded black denim mixed with animal print. You can never go wrong with a dark wash that is easy to dress up for day or night. Express has a great variety of flattering fits and trendy washes to choose from.

 

 

On Deijah: Faded black high-waisted stretch denim with a raw hem, an ultra soft cheetah print sweater and chunky black ankle boots from Off Broadway Shoes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For grown-up style that’s ahead of the curve, go for the denim-on-denim trend and do it now! We loved the look of dark jeans and a well-worn chambray top this spring and summer, but for fall, take the all-denim look a step further and match your blues! Everyone’s favorite denim creator, Baldwin, has an outlet store now and there’s never been a better time to invest in locally designed, totally designer denim.

 

 

On Olivia: Therese high-rise classic straight leg denim with a cropped hem, matching medium-wash denim jacket, fitted white ribbed tee, and a pair of trendy white Fila sneakers from Off Broadway Shoes.

Easy Fall Updates for Your Home

Fashion

Released 9/16/19

Autumn is upon us! From Halloween to Thanksgiving, and each football game, bonfire, and pumpkin-spice everything in between, we are here for it! Take a look at a few of our favorite ideas to add a little fall flair to your home without overhauling your decor or budget … 

 

GET FESTIVE WITH FRAGRANCE

Smell is one of our most powerful senses and it is reportedly directly linked to our memories. Reminisce about grandma’s pumpkin pie, or sipping cider with your loved ones, or roasting marshmallows with a totally extensive line of autumn-inspired fragrances for every room of your home from Bath and Body Works! 

Pictured here, left to right: room spray, foaming hand soap, Wallflowers scented plug-in refills, decorative Wallflower plug-in fragrance diffuser, and a signature three-wick candle

 

SPICE UP YOUR PUMPKINS

A fast and affordable way to add fall flair to your home decor is by sticking with your existing color scheme and infusing some subtle nods to the season. With a variety of sizes and colors, you’re sure to find a stylish squash to spruce up your display! 

 

 

 

Pictured here: matte rose gold pumpkin with a brass stem, shiny mercury glass gourds in a variety of sizes, turquoise pumpkin with an intricately designed stem, and a lovely golden hand-blown glass pumpkin, all from Home Goods.

 

WARM UP YOUR SOFT GOODS GAME

Another easy way to update your home is by swapping out soft goods like pillows and throws. Think of them as accessories for your couch! Look for cozy fabrics, textured knits, autumnal hues like burnt sienna, butterscotch, nutty browns, and trendy ochre.

 

 

 

Pictured here: chenille cable knit blanket by DKNY, classic plaid button-front pillow, jacquard pumpkins pillow, all from T.J. Maxx.

 

If the colors of the trees aren’t your faves, look for more unique colorways when updating your soft goods for fall! We are still loving blush, rose gold, bronze, beige and cool turquoises!

 

 

Pictured here: ultra plush faux-fur throw by Kate Spade and beaded pumpkin pillows, all from T.J. Maxx.

Fall Transitional Pieces for Back-to-School

Fashion

Released 8/27/19

Our favorite back-to-school looks include lots of layering pieces to wear all year, featuring earthy jewel tones and vintage ’90s throw-backs. Take a look at how we dressed our crew! 

 

COOL BLUE LAYERS FOR LITTLE GUYS

A lightweight, long-sleeve tee is great for early fall. Pair it with a zip-up hoodie for cool mornings and evenings as a jacket. Eventually it can be worn as an all-day sweatshirt layer this winter. Dark denim and neutral blue sneakers will look cool all year! 

 

On Adam (clothes from J.Crew, shoes from Off Broadway):

Sky-blue heather and white striped henley

Blue-hued camo zip-up hoodie

Dark wash jeans from Crew Cuts 

Two-tone blue on blue Vans sneakers 

 

 

 

 

 

FLANNEL FOR THE FASHION-FORWARD TWEENS

Plaid is back in a big way and we are loving soft flannel for a transitional shirt that works as a stand-alone top, or as a layer as the weather cools down. Dark stretchy jeggings look great in all seasons and a transitional bootie is the best. 

 

On Madison (clothes and shoes from Justice): High-low flannel with pearl snaps and a raw hem,

Dark wash skinny jeggings

Grey heeled booties with studded spat details

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BACK TO BASICS FOR THE BIG BOYS

Update his look this school year with traditional staples in the latest washes and colors. Dark hunter green tones are everywhere, and the fun medium wash of denim is a cool new take. Top it all off with a cool trucker jacket that works as a lightweight coat now and as a cool layered look in the winter. 

 

On Cayo (clothes from Gap Factory, shoes from Converse): 

Heather grey henley with hunter green ringer detailing and green sleeves

Medium wash athletic cut skinny jeans

Khaki trucker jacket

Classic white Chuck Taylor All-Stars 

 

 

 

 

LOTS OF LAYERS FOR THE LADIES

Throw it back to the nineties with denim skirts, ruby and other jewel-toned ribbed tees, and combat boots! As cooler weather approaches, add on opaque tights under skirts, and layer on the fashion with button-down shirts, cardigans and jackets.

 

On Jennaka (clothes from Aeropostale, shoes from Off Broadway):

Distressed black denim mini skirt

Striped fitted ribbed tee with neckline cut-out details

Vintage-wash chambray pearl-snap shirt

Glittery black patent Doc Marten combat boots from Off Broadway

Teacher Basics for Back-to-School

Fashion

Released 8/20/19

 

We did some shopping and came up with these teachers’ pets of style for the coming school year, including pieces teachers can mix, match and wear all year!

 

Designer Sneakers

A cute logo emblazoned sneaker like this slip-on by Michael Kors Outlet works all day from meetings to recess. Dial up your look and pair with a shift dress or chinos – dial it down and pair with jeans for casual Friday! 

 

Amazingly comfy pants 

These Marveluxe cropped trousers from Chico’s Outlet have a silky smooth and stretchy construction you have to feel to believe. They come in a ton of trendy colors and will feel like you’re wearing your favorite stretchy pajama pants while you work. For active teachers, wearability and comfort can’t be beat with these wrinkle-free pants for a tailored look.

 

A not-so-basic bag

What teacher doesn’t need a stylish bag to carry all their supplies and papers? Bonus points for this Kate Spade bag because of its built-in soft computer sleeve for the latest technology. We love this one in burgundy, blush and beige…but the other versions are great too!

 

Staple suiting separates

We started with a blazer, because Banana Republic Factory has some of the best, but we couldn’t stop there! The iron-free button downs and chic tailored cropped pants make for a complete look that can be mixed and matched all year because of the huge variety of colors and prints available!

 

Treat yourself & visit Legends Outlets to stock up on all your wardrobe basics for this school year!

Back-to-School Style for Kids & Teens

Fashion

Released 7/29/19

 

Believe it or not, it’s that time of year already! School supply lists are available and the back-to-school sales have started! We gathered up our favorite looks for school kids to help inspire your next shopping trip! 

 

For the Littles …

 

Delanie is wearing a super cute layered look from the Gap Outlet, featuring trendy olive green floral jeggings, and a bright mustard yellow logo tee with fun reversible sequins. For elementary school, it’s all about sparkle and shine, so we also went with some glittery pink Converse sneakers from the Converse Outlet and layered on a classic denim jacket from Gap Outlet that she can wear as a trendy layer or a light jacket this fall. Delanie’s lunch box is a fun emoji print Nike thermal pack from the Nike Factory with hot pink trim and easy wipe-able fabrication—a must for all lunches!

Bryson is wearing a fun take on a preppy look with a classic logo polo shirt and khakis from the Polo Ralph Lauren Outlet. We love this as an option for kiddos who need uniform basics and for a classic look to start the school year out on the right foot. We made sure of that by completing his outfit with a shoe cool yellow and navy leather high top sneaker from the Converse Outlet and a fun patchwork Polo Outlet hoodie that will work as a warm layer in air conditioned classrooms and on the playground this fall. Bryson’s lunchbox is a royal blue Nike thermal roll from the Nike Factory, adding some athletic vibes to his school time look. 

 

For the Big Kids …

 

When it comes to middle school and high school, athleisure rules. You can’t be too comfy when it comes to sitting in class all day and bonus points if you’re dressed ready for hitting the gym after school. Aiden’s athleisure look is from the Nike Factory. This fall, you can’t go wrong with a jogger and we loved these lightweight sleek ones for the warmer weather at the start of the semester. We paired them with a grey dri-fit muscle tee and a trendy black hoodie with camo print on the sleeves and hood. Ultra modern sock construction sneakers with gum soles make Aiden ready for PE and physics in the same day. His backpack is from the Converse Outlet and features classic canvas construction and plenty of room for books and supplies to get him through the year. 

Casual is queen for middle and high school looks, and Jada is proof that laid back style can be beautiful. She’s wearing white skinny Rockstar jeggings from the Old Navy Outlet and and a breezy linen blend lavender tunic tied in a trendy knot. We layered on a fun cropped hoodie with a floral logo print from the Converse Outlet and love the white-on-white minimal look of her outfit. We elevated Jada’s casual vibe with rose colored platform sneakers from the Converse Outlet and a complimentary pink and olive backpack from the Nike Factory, making her school look as comfy as it is chic!

Pro tip for back-to-school shopping: hit up Legends Outlets early and often to catch all the sales and make some fun memories with your family as you prepare to hit the books this fall!

 

College Prep Must-Haves

News

Released 7/19/19

College students are packing up and heading for school sooner than anyone else! Between tuition and books, clothes and rent, it’s definitely the time to share some budget-friendly bonding with your biggest kid. Take a daytrip to Legends to look for these must-have items for any collegiate heading to school!

 

MODERN DORM DECOR

Make your residence hall feel like home with unique, hand-picked decor, organization, and necessities. We found all that and more at Home Goods! From novelty to super-chic, the options are endless and were surprised at the variety of styles (say bye-bye to boring towels)! Here are our absolute must-haves for feathering your college nest: a super plushy, warm and fuzzy throw for lounging like this one from Calvin Kelin; sleek organizational totes to keep your stuff where it belongs like these cool watercolor ones; a mid-century task lamp for late night study sessions and bedside reading without keeping your roommate up; a to-do list organizer you won’t hate to look at like this modern frameless marble finish dry erase board; cheery towels in your favorite color like this navy windowpane set by Mind on Design; and last but not least, something cheeky and green to brighten up your space, like a fun little faux cactus in a brightly colored pot! 

 

BET ON A BLAZER

Listen, it’s time to get yourself a grown-up blazer. Whether you’re thinking of internships or part-time job interviews or even real grown-up jobs or post-grad school interviews, the time to invest in a staple of your adult wardrobe is now. And nothing says grown man/woman style like Banana Republic. We love this light-weight blended navy blue two-button blazer from the mens’ section because it will work with denim for a more business casual vibe, or super sharp with a pair of chinos for a preppy look. While you’re at it, consider getting matching navy suit pants for a head-to-toe dressed-for-success look! 

In the women’s section, we fell for this sleek, light grey fitted blazer. Pair it with black denim and a graphic tee for a trendy casual look or layer it over a business casual dress for a put-together outfit. Don’t forget matching slim-cut pants to complete the full suited look, which you can totally customize to your style with fun shirts and accessories. Since you’re shopping at the BR Outlet, go ahead and get yourself the matching pencil skirt too for a full workweek capsule wardrobe!

 

COLLEGE SURVIVAL GEAR

In a lot of ways, college is like camping. We found SO many handy life hacks for college kids at Eddie Bauer. For most people, space is limited, so pack smart with handy stuff like these packing pouches and compression bags. A phone wrist wallet works great for exercising on campus or just making the long trek to class. To stay hydrated, pack your favorite water bottle with you wherever you go. We like this white one but there are tons of designs and colors ready to go with you! And last but not least, we are also loving double-duty items like this cool 7-in-1 multi-tool and wallet combo! Be sure to check out their huge display in the center of the store to see more camping and college essentials like coolers, backpacks, lights and mounts for your bike, and even canteens and flasks!

 

GROWN-UP GEAR

Don’t forget about class! You’ll be hauling your books, notepads, computers and more to and from class every single day so you might as well look good doing it! 

From Wilson’s we love this versatile convertible canvas bag with genuine leather flaps, straps and details. It functions both as a messenger style bag and as a backpack with thick, supportive straps. For students with international desires, do not scrimp on your RFID protected passport protector; we love this sleek brown leather one from Wilson’s that matches the leather detailing on the backpack perfectly. 

If femme is more your style, march right into Kate Spade now because their backpacks come in every size and all the hottest colors for fall. We loved this mid-sized backpack because it can hold a 13” laptop while still looking sleek and chic! Speaking of chic, Kate Spade Outlet’s signature fall floral is this beautiful floral print with mauve, berry and turquoise watercolor details that we can’t get enough of. This laptop sleeve is a must-have for sliding that expensive electronic in and out of your bag every day!

 

BONUS TIP

While you’re at Legends you’re just seconds away from great school shopping spots like T.J. Maxx, Target, and Sam’s Club so make the most of the fun location and get your gear fast and for less!

Summer Style for Every Occasion

Fashion

Released 7/10/19

 

Ah, summer in Kansas City. Sometimes sweltering, sometimes stormy, always fun and always so much to do! Legends Outlets stylist, Sarah Findley, breaks summer down into her top five favorite looks and where to wear them this season!

 

MY PICNIC PICKS

Summer is the season for outdoor eating! Whether it’s brunch on a patio, family reunions, or a backyard BBQ, my favorite picnic look comes head-to-toe from J. Crew Factory. I wear this breezy cotton-linen striped midi skirt with everything and sub it for shorts when I’m feeling like kicking my outfit up a notch without sacrificing comfort (hello elastic waistband for second helpings of pasta salad and watermelon)! I tuck in or tie cute graphic tees like this brunch top, or a sweet v-neck like this J. Crew Mercantile basic tee in brilliant poppy—a fresh take on pink and a popular color this summer! I love to mix prints and could wear these Zoe faux calf hair d’orsay flats with everything. If I want to dress it up a bit, I opt for my go-to canvas espadrille wedges, which offer some height without sinking your heels into your neighbor’s yard! Layer on chic summer accessories like this oversize tortoise shell link necklace and a timeless straw fedora, and you’re ready for any outdoor party!

MY SUMMER PARTY DRESS

For more dressed-up affairs, I always head to my favorite femme dress spot, the Express Factory Outlet. This summer, bright rompers are the new LBD for your bachelorette party, winery tour, or day-to-night party look. I love this grassy tropical print on a bold berry background and the off-the-shoulder cut and flowy sleeves totally make this anything but your basic one-piece. With so many fun colors in the print, I’m always swapping out bright tassel earrings and eye makeup choices to change up this outfit. If I’m transitioning my look from day to night festivities, I always go with black accessories, like these minimalist strappy block-heel sandals by Express Factory Outlet. A black floppy straw hat and plastic rimmed shades give sun protection and style points at the same time!

MY POOL VIBE

For me, my pool look has to be functional and fashionable. One-piece suits are everywhere this summer, and I don’t hate it! I love this entire look from Forever 21 Red, featuring an earthy olive deep-v one-piece with high cut legs. The color is super popular and goes with anything, but I loved it with a pair of creamy peach linen shorts and a long flowy palm leaf kimono. I seriously love this as an outfit AND a pool cover-up! A low-maintenance pair of slides with rose gold faux leather straps are easy to kick off poolside and also work great for a long walk on the beach (or from the parking lot to the waterpark with the kiddos). I do NOT skip on sun protection so I loved this flat brim straw hat with mauve tassels. A basic pair of oversize rose gold hoops complete this look for me and I’ll feel cool whether I’m in or out of the water!

MY PATIO PARTY LOOK

Summer is also super fun for all the outdoor festivals, patio drinks, and festive events! I like to look summery, while having the layers and style I need to make an outfit work for me in any setting. If I’m heading to First Fridays, block parties, or concerts, I’ll add my boho personality to a basic white tank like this one by tying it in a knot and adding some awesome, colorful, exotic palazzo pants. I love this outfit from Francesca’s because it’s creative and fun, while including some major style points like the flowy legs, trendy mustard color scheme, and turquoise jewelry. A gauzy lace kimono with bell sleeves adds a layer of style without adding any unnecessary warmth for this steamy season, and a laser cut clutch with gold chain strap allows me to tote my money, phone, and—most importantly—shine blotting paper with me in the Midwest heat. I hide a pair of Birkenstocks under the wide legs of my palazzo pants so that I can stay on my feet all day and night!

MY DAILY UNIFORM

What about the day-to-day summer slog? Let’s be honest … most of your summer is spent in and out of the car, stores, and restaurants! For errands, appointments, and lunch with friends, I keep my summer look minimal and breathable. My go-to outfit this summer has been this spaghetti strap romper from H&M (it has pockets!). I love it because it’s so cool and lightweight, featuring an elastic cinched waist and the most delicate straps with a perfect neckline in front and back … and because I can trade out my accessories to make it a different look while wearing it on repeat all summer. Straw canteen purses work great for lunches on the go, heels and wedges dress it up for nights out, and colorful beaded earrings and bracelets spice up the color palette. That said, my absolute default version is styled with leather sandals like Birkenstocks or these cute knock-offs from Off Broadway that feature a trendy white outsole, oversize tortoise shell earrings from H&M, my trusty J. Crew Factory straw fedora, and a big woven bag with tassels from H&M that’s cute enough to be a purse but big enough to tote contents for meetings and errands!

 

 

Festive Fourth of July Fashions

Fashion

Released 7/1/19

 

Independence Day is right around the corner and it’s a totally fun excuse to get festive with your look! We did a little shopping and picked up some great outfits for the whole family, focusing on wearability, comfort and value for this busy summer holiday!

Katie’s look works great for teens and moms, with a focus on fashion and just a subtle nod to the red, white and blue. We picked a pair of distressed high-waisted skinny jeans from the Gap Outlet and paired them with a basic cream tank featuring spaghetti straps, neck tie detail, and lightweight cotton blend construction. We love this summer basics look and she can wear it for any casual event she has during the hot weather! For some extra style, we layered on a long flowy kimono from Maurice’s, which we love for its breezy fabric and handkerchief-print inspired red, white, blue, and mauve color scheme. Accessories like a dainty layering necklace set and navy tassel earrings from H&M work for the holiday but can also look great with lots of other looks. To round out her wearable style, we went with some mid-height espadrille wedges by Tommy Hilfiger from Off Broadway Shoes.

Reece is nailing tween fashion with lots of sparkle and shine from Justice. These short overalls are so fabulously patriotic with their mermaid sequins in blue stars on one leg and red and white stripes on the other! Underneath we layered a white and blue tie-dye tunic that will look great over shorts or even leggings later in the summer. We topped off her look with shiny red, white and blue sunglasses from Justice, but there were tons to choose from, including barretts, headbands, jewelry, fanny packs and more! Classic red Converse low-top All-Stars from Off Broadway complete her all-American look.

Juston’s dad style game is strong in one of our favorite classic American brands — Levi’s. We started with a medium wash, athletic taper 541 denim which he can wear year-round. Then we added a vintage inspired logo tee, with a distressed finish. These come in every color but we went with the classic for this holiday. Over that we layered a fun madras plaid short-sleeve button up so that his overall vibe is low-key patriotic, not cheesy. Retro white and blue Nike high-tops from Off Broadway add some fun to his look and will keep him on his feet all day and night during the festivities!

Wyatt packs a lot of style in a little package with his patriotic outfit. A souvenir-inspired New York tee from H&M shows off his all-American spirit, while trendy Bermuda length denim shorts from H&M add some serious style to the look. For the littles, the Fourth of July is a fun time to add a little novelty so we went to Carter’s/OshKosh and looked through their super fun assortment of patriotic clothes for kids. We were excited when we found this darling short-sleeve button-down shirt that features hotdogs and popsicles! Little red Puma sneakers from Off Broadway feature white and navy detailing as well as easy velcro closures to help little brother keep up with the rest of the crew on the busy day!

From picnics to parades, then fireworks to festivities, Legends Outlets has 100+ stores ready to inspire your patriotic style this Fourth of July!

Summer Style Must-Haves

Fashion

Released 6/11/19

 

Summer is a fun time to play with your personal style because it’s typically a more laid back time of the year with a lot more fun happening all around you! From downtown to down time, Legends stylist, Sarah Findley, shares her top five fashion must-haves for the hottest season!

For me, summer style is all about wearability (and breathability–hello midwest heatwave!). I look for breezy fabrics, lots of neutrals, stuff I can add jewelry to in order to dress it up without having to worry about extra layers, and stuff I can dress down for a backyard BBQ without having to feel like I’m rolling up in my pajama shorts and boring t-shirt. Bonus points: my five faves for summer all work great together so I find myself re-wearing parts of all these looks without having to repeat an outfit exactly.

 

THE CANADIAN TUXEDO Denim skirts are back and their reincarnation features lengths, shapes and washes fit for any age bracket. My favorite way to wear them is with a nod to the infamous all-denim “Canadian tuxedo,” by adding a chambray button down! Worn open over a fun graphic tee or buttoned up and tucked in, the look is effortlessly cool and very in style this year. I love the selection of denim mini skirts at The Buckle, and I wear my chambray shirt in perfect fit from the J. Crew Factory store all the time!

 

 

 

 

MIDI DRESSES & SKIRTS

This year’s response to maxi dresses is the midi-length. Skimming your calf, this flattering length can look casual or dressed up. For a dressier vibe, look for a silky slip dress like the ones at J. Crew Factory store and add lots of delicate gold jewels from Francesca’s. For a more casual look, try one of the soft twist-back options at the Banana Republic Factory store! I love the slit up the legs on this one and the breezy flow of the dress. Read on to see what shoes I’m pairing mine with …  

 

 

RETRO SNEAKERS

While nothing beats a cute flat sandal, lots of influencers are trading theirs in for classic sneakers this summer. This is great news if you have lots of walking in store for your summer vacation! Consider retro looks like the Nike Cortez and Reebok’s Classic running shoe if you’re looking for a traditional sneaker. Or, you can go with my personal fave and get and old school, shell-toe Adidas Superstar! I’m loving the updated colors like mauve, rose gold, and yellow gold. I’ve seen these everywhere but I nabbed my white Superstars with gold stripes from the Adidas Store and wear them daily with shorts, jeans and–yes–even dresses!

 

 

JUMPSUITS

If you are looking for a one-piece, go-anywhere, on-trend outfit, get yourself a jumpsuit. Dress them up with heels and jewels. Dress them down with sandals or sneakers. Whoever invented this chic garment seriously had busy fashion-forward gals in mind. Everyone got this memo so you can find them anywhere, in a variety of styles, fabrics and lengths. Some feature saucy cut-outs and some are more tailored and modest. I’m loving the latter and had no trouble finding one I loved at the Express outlet! Bonus points that this one features my summer’s signature chambray construction.

 

 

 

PLATFORM ESPADRILLES

Everyone’s favorite wedges have received an easy-going update this summer in the form of a thick, flat midsole and I’m loving it. The resulting shoe is everywhere and makes it super easy to add some height to your outfit without breaking your ankles. This is seriously a backyard party or garden wedding game changer!  Check out Francesca’s for a cute variety, as well as Off Broadway for tons of fun colorways. Cuff your jeans above the ankle to show off this trendy take on a beachy fave!

 

Summer Festival Fashions

Fashion

Released 6/6/19

 

Live music, day drinking and flower crowns as far as the eye can see can only mean one thing, festival season is here! Festivals are the time to have fun and let loose, so why not do the same with your outfit? This is your chance to express yourself and experiment with trends you’ve been wanting to try. Don’t be afraid! Festivals are a no-judgement zone, so go bananas with all the fringe, boho prints and crochet crop tops your heart desires. From Boulevardia right here in Kansas City, to Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and everywhere in between, Legends has everything you need to get festival ready.

 

Easy Breezy: Stay comfy and chic from the first set to the encore in this outfit from Francesca’s. Pair a bralette or crop tank with light, flowing palazzo pants, made with breathable fabric perfect for hot days and breezy nights. We’re all about finding versatile pieces you can wear season after season. Wear the bralette under overalls or with high-waisted shorts, and style the palazzo pants with a chunky sweater in autumn! Keep the sun out of your eyes with a pair of statement sunglasses and beachy straw hat.

 

 

 

 

 

Colorful Crochet: This look from American Eagle is the ultimate summer trend! It’s slightly bohemian, slightly 70’s and 100 percent festival perfection. Pair this colorful crochet halter top with paperbag denim shorts for an outfit as comfy as it is a statement. Store all your festival necessities in a woven straw shoulder bag, the IT bag of the season (and a versatile wardrobe staple). Add some fringe slides, and you’re good to go!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rust Paradise: Forever 21 is a festival-goers paradise. From playful rompers to colorful bandannas, rainbow straw bags and vibrant shades, Forever 21 has you covered on this season’s most adventurous trends without breaking the bank. Keep cool in this rust halter mini-dress, equal parts comfy, stylish and timeless. Throw your hair up in a patterned scarf to add some fun to your look and keep your strands out of your face while cheering for your favorite band. Jump to the beat and dance the day away without thinking twice in a pair of strappy bohemian sandals.

Father’s Day Gift Guide

News

Released 5/28/19

 

What do you get a great dude like dad? The sky is the limit, obviously, when you’re trying to show an important guy in your life your appreciation for all the time, support, and tough love he’s shown you or your kiddos over the years! We took a trip to do some shopping for our favorite father figures. Take a look at our top five gift ideas for Father’s Day this year!

 

TREAT HIM TO SOMETHING SAVORY

What do you get the guy who has everything? One word: consumables. And the hottest food-themed gift these days is created with your favorite carnivore in mind. We love the build-your-own-box of jerkies at Beef Jerky Outlet! From grass-fed beef to wild game, with every spice and flavor known to man, this huge meat shop is the perfect stop to make and has other fun stuff as well like novelty shirts and free samples!

 

HELP HIM SHOW OFF HIS SMARTS BEYOND BOOKS

We can’t skip Books-A-Million when we have a gift-giving opportunity! And this time around, they did not disappoint. They make it easy with great selections of books, bibles and gift items for men of faith; maps, atlases, guidebooks and survival kits for the outdoor dad; as well as hilarious “dad joke” books, novelty items and gag gifts for the goofy dad. Don’t forget BAM’s enormous selection of best-selling titles, including the nonfiction, history and literature your dad will love to read.

 

GET HIM IN TOUCH WITH HIS VACATION VIBES

Whether you’re taking a big trip with dad this summer or not, check out the surprisingly laid-back looks at Brooks Brothers Factory Store! We are loving the tropical print button downs, beach bags, and everything with pineapples on it!

 

 

 

HELP HIM BE FASHION FORWARD

If you’re looking to treat dad, consider investing in a sleek designer item from one of Legends Outlets’ luxe brands like the Coach Outlet. You can make a big impression on him without breaking the bank with Coach’s handsome line of travel accessories that fit inside your budget and inside a gift bag! We are loving their luxurious assortment of leather valet trays and travel accessories. Our favorite is the large zipper pouch that comes in a ton of manly prints and would work great inside his gym bag or suitcase!

 

TAKE HIM ON A DAD-DATE

Never underestimate the thoughtfulness of giving someone you love the gift of your time together. Bonus points if it includes food and drinks! Our favorite spots to eat, drink and be merry with dad this summer include Granite City for their high-end food and stellar brewery, Arthur Bryant’s Barbeque for their quintessential KC BBQ experience, Stix for their pan-Asian teppanyaki grill, sushi and Chinese cuisine, and Yard House for their patio seating and self-proclaimed world’s largest selection of draft beer. Surprise dad with a day or night out or let him pick the place. Either way, you’re both sure to have a blast!

 

Whatever you decide to do for dad, do it with style when you pick a thoughtful gift or gesture!

Tips for Outfitting Your Grad

Fashion

Released 5/15/19

 

Graduation season is in full swing, and it’s a great time of year to update your style for all the photo ops, parties, and fun! Here are our top three tips for outfitting your grad, plus our favorite looks for the festivities!

  1. Wearability: Consider styles you can re-wear after the big day and get more bang for your buck, especially if you’re considering a suit or a statement piece. These will serve you well post-grad!
  2. Timelessness: Graduation is a day full of photo ops. Be true to your style but consider choices that you can be proud of after the flash!
  3. Neutrals: Many graduation caps and gowns are white. Consider a mellow print or a neutral hue (majorly in style this spring anyway!) that won’t clash with your school colors or show through your thin robe.

 

Austin is sporting some serious suiting, all compliments of Brooks Brothers Factory Store. For guys, graduation is an excellent opportunity to grab some investment pieces that they will wear for years to come. We opted for a lightweight suit in a classic navy color and white oxford shirt. For some fun, we added trendy salmon colored accessories, including the age-old Brooks Brothers signature “Rep” striped tie, a cheery floral pocket square, and striped socks. A cognac Brooks Brothers belt and matching oxford loafers by Steve Madden from Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse tie the look together. For graduation and beyond, visit Brooks Brothers for expert styling and ready-to-wear looks that look ultra tailored for more than half off retail prices!

 

Taylor is staying neutral with her graduation look–a suggestion we make for all grads who may be wearing a white or light-colored cap and gown this season. We loved this tiered white dress from Francesca’s, featuring a modest trapeze neckline, cinched natural waist, and a beautiful lace racerback. Accessories are abound at Francesca’s, and we had no trouble picking out lots of beautiful, neutral sparkles to dress up this look, including a trendy fringe necklace with matching earrings, and an arm party with beads and crystals. For footwear, we opted for a low ankle strap sandal by Steve Madden from Off Broadway, which is in style but classic, completing an outfit that will stand the test of time in all the photo ops graduation provides!

 

Jada’s laidback look features an of-the-moment seersucker apron dress from J. Crew Factory. We love the striping and square neckline for a chic yet casual look for middle school graduation, or for attending older siblings’ big day events. We added personality to Jada’s graduation look with some trendy mustard yellow Franco Sarto platform espadrilles from Off Broadway and trendy matching tassel earrings from Francesca’s. A gold tone metallic fringe necklace adds some edgy flair and is just one more way you can add style to your cap and gown look!

 

Parker is keeping it casual for graduation, wearing this season’s guy staples: tailored skinny fit chinos and a short-sleeve button-down shirt. We got these from American Eagle Outfitters, where there are tons of colorways for both pieces and the sizes start extra small for tween kids. This button-down features a preppy polka dot pattern, but options range from basic to beachy right now, and it’s a perfect shirt to wear all summer by adding a graphic tee and leaving it unbuttoned after graduation. A pair of navy blue leather Steve Madden oxford sneakers provide a put together vibe while outfitting Parker to play after the festivities!

 

So, whether you’re a graduate or just in it for the mints and cake, take a quick trip to Legends Outlets to outfit your whole family for the season!

 

 

 

Graduation Gift Guide

News

Released 5/13/19

 

Graduation season is here in full force, and it’s such a fun reason to give gifts. Let the excitement, the inspiration, the celebration, and the hope for the future inspire your gift-giving this spring and head to Legends Outlets for great ideas for your grad that fit your budget.

Here are some of our favorite ideas …

 

GIFTS FOR ANY ADVENTURE

For fun, unique, and affordable gifts for any grad, stop by Francesca’s. We loved the world map to-go coffee mugs and fun celebratory champagne flutes for more grown-up grads. They also have a great variety of travel and adventure-inspired jewelry sets, like matching compass rose earrings and necklaces, mountains on gold chains, and lots of other fun gems that come on beautiful display cards with inspirational messages.

GIFTS TO COMMEMORATE THE BIG DAY

For a truly special graduation gift, head to one of the only area jewelry outlets at Legends Outlets, like Kay, Helzberg or Zales. Each has a wide assortment of beautiful jewelry and watches perfect for any graduate. We stopped in at Kays and found this on-trend, gorgeous gold bar necklace and this ultra sleek Citizen watch. Consider engraving either with your graduate’s initials, their graduation date, or something more creative like the GPS coordinates of their home if they’re getting ready to move away!

 

GIFTS TO INVEST IN FOR THEIR FUTURE

If your grad is ready to ditch the backpack, you can’t go wrong with a tote or briefcase. Wilson’s Leather is our favorite place to shop for investment pieces like this because they have a huge variety of shapes, sizes and colors at steep discounts. Our favorites include this day-to-night tote in a versatile taupe shade and this transit briefcase in a deep brown shade–both of which feature super soft, high quality leather.

 

GIFTS TO INSPIRE THEIR JOURNEY

If you’re looking for something sentimental, make sure to check out Books-A-Million for their large assortment of journals. From whimsical to sophisticated, they have tons of lovely options. Consider picking up one that reminds of your grad, then jot a message to them inside the cover! While you’re at BAM, check out other gift ideas like spiritual books, cookbooks, post-grad test prep materials and supplies, and even fun dorm room decor!

 

GIFTS FOR THE GOING-SOMEWHERE GRAD

Whether your grad is moving away to college or moving up in the workforce, never underestimate the power of a gift card! Legends Outlets gift cards can be purchased in any denomination and used at any of the more-than 100 retailers, restaurants, and entertainment venues at the mall. Consider sticking one in a cool water bottle from Under Armour, a cute wallet from Charming Charlie, or even inside the case of a pair of sunglasses from Sunglass Hut for a fun “The Future’s So Bright” message!

 

 

Applebees debuts new look

News

Released 5/3/19

On Friday, May 3, Applebee’s Speedway location reopened with a fresh new look and feel centered around the neighborhood and contemporary dining experiences. The renovated Applbee’s location includes new design features and a custom mural focused on the Kansas City, Kansas neighborhood.

This remodel is Applebee’s first big step in rekindling the local feel of the Applebee’s brand, kicking off in the city that the first Applebee’s franchise was born. Much of the wall décor focuses on the local area, including a large hand-painted mural representing the Kansas City, Kansas community. Applebee’s is teaming up with the local arts organization InterUrban ArtHouse to bring the mural to life, featuring talented local artists. The mural is set to be installed and unveiled to the community after the Applebee’s Speedway’s renovations are complete, by early summer.

To give Applebee’s a fresh new look and feel all around, local contractor GCStrategies gave the interior new paint, ceilings, dining room flooring and light fixtures over tables. Additionally, the restaurant introduced new chairs, barstools and tabletops, as well as reupholstered booths. On the exterior, Applebee’s received a fresh facelift and debuted a more modernized appearance with new paint around the entire building.

Guests can take advantage of $1 draft beers for the first seven days that Applebee’s is reopen, May 2-9. Draft beers include all domestic and craft selections, such as Boulevard Wheat, Boulevard Tank 7 and Stella Artois.

MOTHER’S DAY MUST-GIVE GUIDE

News

Released 4/29/19

 

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it can be intimidating picking out a gift to show your appreciation to your own mom or stepmom, the mother of your kids, a grandma, or just a special person who plays an important role in your life. Here are my top picks in all my favorite momming departments!

 

PAMPERED MOM

My first stop was The Cosmetics Company Store, where I know I can always count on great gift sets of designer fragrances at a discounted price and the hottest makeup palettes with the same great discount. Those two are my favorite go-to gifts when I want to gift something that’s just a little bit more than what she might be expecting or what she might be willing to spend on herself.

 

THIS MOM’S PICK: Everyone is talking about the Glam Glow line of products and the Cosmetics Company has a whole display of these super high-end, clean beauty products. I was blown away! And the Cosmetics Company price point is just right for gifting these products (and maybe scoring a couple for yourself!). Treat mom to their best-seller, SuperMud® and give her the gift of complexion clearing, detoxifying, clarifying and pore refining forever-young, baby-soft skin! Seriously, she’ll thank you.

 

ACCESSORIZED MOM

One my first stops when I’m looking for gifts is always Francesca’s. If you’re looking for a stylish gift without committing to sizes or a whole look, definitely consider some of my favorite items they have right now including super trendy embellished clutch purses and wallets, fun summer-ready wide-brimmed hats, and dainty gold necklaces. Stop in and ask one of their friendly team members for help if you need inspiration. They all have great style there.

 

THIS MOM’S PICK: Accessories go way beyond fashion. After you find the perfect bit of flair for mom, don’t forget one of their beautiful and oh-so-fragrant candles. There are tons but my favorite is this therapeutic Relaxing Lavender candle with a gorgeous gold lid and hip purple geode stone on top. It seriously will smell as good as it looks and she’ll think of you every time she lights it!

 

STYLED MOM

If you know you want to find something fashionable for mom but you’re not sure where to start, start at Maurices. Their size ranges are totally comprehensive, they provide free shipping to their store if they don’t have the size you’re looking for, and their seasonal collections are made to go together so mixing and matching is super easy. I love their graphic tees for a more casual mom-look and all the fun striped patterned pants and shirts this season.

 

THIS MOM’S PICK:  Keep the kimonos coming! They’ve been around a while but are still a great way to dress up any look. Bonus points: you don’t need to worry about specific sizing to gift these. I love layering them over graphic tees like Maurices did with this one, but I also like dressing them up for a breezy layered look. This navy one with exaggerated sleeves and a floral print will work all summer long!

 

JEWELED MOM

Every year, Helzberg, Zales and Kay come up with the trendiest, most meaningful styles especially for Mother’s Day. And no mom is going to turn down diamonds! This year, check out Helzberg’s Diamond Restyle Event on May 7, where special jewelers will be on-site to re-set your existing stones, re-size existing rings, and design unique jewelry. Consider getting mom’s wedding ring re-set or freshened up with a new design!

 

THIS MOM’S PICK: Throw mom an arm party this Mother’s Day! These adjustable, dainty bolo bracelets are the new “mother’s ring” and I love the idea of stacking multiples from each of your kiddos, featuring each one’s birthstone. If diamonds aren’t in your budget, these beautiful lab-created white sapphire and gemstone bracelets will mean something to mom and go with anything!

 

LABELED MOM

One of the best parts about Legends Outlets is being steps away from Kate Spade, Michael Kors and Coach all at the same time! Mother’s Day is a great holiday to splurge on a handbag for mom because it’s just in time for something fresh and new for summer. And outlet pricing means you can afford to get mom a piece she’ll carry for the rest of the year!

THIS MOM’S PICK: I can always count on the bright and cheery floral prints at Kate Spade. Every season they get better and better. And while not all moms are ready to carry an oversized flower handbag, you can totally infuse the undeniably happy style into your mom’s life by opting for one of the smaller wallet options like this one that I love. The Sylvia Wildflower Bouquet small slim bifold wallet is the right price point and the right size for any mom!

EASTER OUTFITS FOR EVERYONE!

Fashion

Released 4/17/19

 

Easter is on its way, and we are here for the springy styles adorning the racks at Legends Outlets. Add to that the warming temperatures, and we were excited to do some outdoor shopping! We went on a mission to find versatile looks for all the kids in your family for a weekend full of family, fun, fellowship … and sweet treats!

 

TRENDY PRINTS FOR LITTLE GIRLS

Mia is wearing a dress from Carter’s in this spring’s new color, sweet mustardy yellow. We have been loving this color for fall and are so excited to see its appearance as a warm spring tone! The fresh floral print is everywhere this spring and isn’t going anywhere so feel free to get all the blooms! Spaghetti straps and ruffle details make this sweet sundress a great transitional piece along with her white strappy and braided Nina sandals from Off Broadway Shoes. Consider layering this look with a white cardigan for your Easter events, then, enjoy the breezy vibe of this carefree dress outfit all summer!

 

BRIGHT LITTLE BOY BASICS

Bentley is wearing a signature spring look: crisp chinos and a preppy piqué polo shirt. While options abound, we chose these from Crewcuts at J. Crew Factory, because we loved the quality and the huge assortment of fun, springy pastels, including this beautiful sea foam green one with a cool emoji on the chest. For maximum egg hunting speed, opt for a dressed up version of a traditional sneaker like these caramel leather high-top Sprox shoes from Off Broadway Shoes.

 

DREAMY TWEEN DRESS VIBES

Sophia is wearing a romantic tiered peasant dress from Justice. We fell in love with this dress right away because of its on-trend details that we can’t get enough of this spring, including fluttery sleeves, eyelet details and midi length. While we were at Justice, we had trouble picking our favorite shoe from all the chic options for teens and tweens but decided on this minimalist sandal featuring rose gold vamp strap and a cognac ankle strap. Sophia can dress this look up or down this summer, but we personally would love to see her style it in the latest western trend by adding a belt, boots and denim jacket this fall!

 

UPDATED STAPLE STYLES FOR BIG BRO

Cayo’s Easter look is another classic. His outfit came from Gap Outlet and includes a fresh oxford button-down in yellow and blue plaid (but there are TONS of variations if you’re looking for a special color scheme) and navy chinos in a modern skinny fit. We spiced up this traditional outfit with the latest trend in guys’ footwear: the updated athleisure loafer. We nabbed these at Off Broadway Shoes — we love the perforated detailing on the rich brown leather and the refreshed look of the white midsole. For your casual dude, there are a lot of cool options in this design at Off Broadway Shoes for every price point.

 

So, what are you waiting for? Hop on out to Legends Outlets, soak up some sun, and outfit the family at great prices for this upcoming Instagram-worthy holiday weekend!

Spring Break Style for the Whole Family

Fashion

Released 3/18/19

 

Whether you’re hitting the road, taking to the skies, or just staying put, spring break 2019 is here and it’s a great opportunity to give your look a tropical upgrade! With warmer weather and longer days on the way, we put together some travel-worthy looks for the whole family–even if that just means adding a little fun to your staycation style. This year, our favorite spring break must-haves are centered around lots of layers, beach inspired prints, and tourist approved sneakers.

 

FOR THE LITTLES 

We went east-coast cool for Adam, choosing some prepster-inspired style from Crew Cuts at J. Crew Factory Outlet. Adam is sporting a fun crab t-shirt and some easy, breezy chambray shorts. We layered on a navy and white gingham button-down shirt to add extra style and even a bit of warmth for the early spring weather. While we were admiring the huge assortment of graphic tees and oxford shirt combos, we also grabbed a cool pair of lucite shades with mirrored lenses. To complete the Nantucket vibe, we love these navy blue Sperry Topsiders from Off Broadway Shoes.

 

FOR THE TEENS AND TWEENS 

Forever 21 Red is one of our favorite stops to make when it comes to teen and tween trendspotting. It’s always a safe spot to try out new clothes while our fashion-forward youngsters are finding their personal styles–and growing like weeds in the meantime! We had no trouble outfitting Grace from head to toe at Forever 21 Red this spring break. We started with a soft and stretchy jersey knit bodysuit in a totally tropical print. Then we layered on a medium-wash denim mini skirt (which is making a big comeback right now) and a soft and worn-in bubble gum pink hoodie. And, what vacation look is complete without a fanny pack!? This one features mermaid sequins and looks great paired with some oversize tortoise shell palm-leaf earrings and chic blue lucite square-frame sunnies. For maximum adventure, we finished off Grace’s look with a trendy mint-colored, checkered slip-on sneaker by Vans from Off Broadway Shoes. 

FOR DAD

Dad style remains “in” and it’s getting better-and more adventurous-by the minute! Jesse’s look is made possible by the perfectly suited wall of vacation print button-downs we fell in love with at the Express Outlet. We opted for a chilled-out look, featuring a white shirt with blue line art palm trees and a broken-in heather baby-blue t-shirt underneath, but we wouldn’t shy away from the louder more tropical prints they have! We also loved the functional khaki-colored cut-off chinos at Express, and some Wayfarer-inspired mirrored lenses we found there as well. Jesse’s holiday footwear is a cool white Nike slip-on sneaker from Off Broadway, making long walks on the beach or boardwalk a breeze during any vacation.

 

FOR MOM 

Everyone’s favorite floral maxi dress isn’t going anywhere and we are pretty happy about it. Jessica’s spring break look centers around this lush colored tropical print maxi dress from the Express Outlet. With important updates to the standard maxi dress, hers features an asymmetrical hem and off-the-shoulder neckline. We wrapped her in a super soft pashmina from J. Crew Factory Outlet for a layer of warmth and sophistication. We accessorized with some of the latest trends from Forever 21 Red, including oversized blush tortoise shell earrings and this summer’s staple, the basket bag (chic enough for date night, but big enough for toting home souvenirs). Franco Sarto high-heeled Havana sandals give her outfit a polished air, but we wouldn’t hesitate to pair flat slides or sandals with this dress, or even try the latest look: pairing a well-worn sneaker with this otherwise feminine outfit!

 

No matter where your spring break takes you, be sure to stop in and check out all the holiday-ready style and the great deals at Legends Outlets this spring!

 

 

 

Top 5 Must-Haves for Spring Break

Fashion

Released 3/11/19

Legends Outlets’ pro stylist Sarah H. recently stopped by the center to shop for some spring break must-haves. Keep reading to find out her top picks! 

 

Sarah’s Picks: Top 5 Must-Haves for Spring Break

 

A springy sweater you can live in …

I immediately fell in love with this sweet, blushy oh-so-soft sweater with a scalloped hem at J. Crew Factory Outlet. When I saw it I knew I had to have it for my spring wardrobe because it fits all the requirements for this important time of year. Whether you’re packing for a trip or upgrading your staycation wardrobe, a sweater like this is worth its weight in gold because it provides a cozy warm layer when you need it, but a soft and light look that won’t weigh down your spring break style. This warm dusty blush color is this season’s hottest neutral and you’ll find yourself relying on it for the rest of the year, I promise! I bought mine true to size but consider sizing up for a looser layered look or down to make this a sweet simple top.

Pro tip: while you’re at J. Crew, check out their new selection of easy summer slides. With the comfort of everyday sandals, but the put-together vibe you love about J. Crew, there’s not a better staple sandal this year.

 

A good book you can get lost in … 

I’m currently reading The Nightingale, by Kristin Hannah, but I’m developing quite a reading list for the spring and summer months and I started it simply by popping in to Books-A-Million and visiting their best sellers section. Whether you’re a bookworm and know just what you’re looking for or if you’re wandering the aisles looking for inspiration, make it a priority to stop in and grab yourself (and your family!) a great book to read this spring break. Kids will love a huge variety of anime, graphic novels and good-fit titles they can power through no matter how long their vacation is. Adults will love the thoughtfully organized rows featuring thousands of titles. My favorite is the best seller section, located front and center where picking up the latest title is quick and easy.

Pro tip: while you’re at Books-A-Million, check out the beautiful selection of journals and consider starting a fun travel journal with your family or a gratitude journal while you’re spending time having fun with your loved ones this season!

 

An exotic accessory you can wear no matter the weather …

This spring, I can’t get enough of these exotics-inspired drop earrings. Featuring materials like tortoise shell, wicker, mother of pearl, marble, gold tones, rattan, sea shells, and more, my favorite way to add some vacation to my staycation look is right here. I’m loving mine because they are a super cost effective way to add some beach vibes to your wardrobe and you can do it without freezing … for those of us who are staying in the Midwest this spring break, that is. If you’re headed out of this time zone, be sure to stop by Forever 21 Red where I found a literal wall of beautiful earring options –most of which are under $10!

Pro tip: use your ear flair as an excuse to rock this season’s other signature look–a low messy pony. Located right next to the earrings and sunglasses, F21 Red also has a great assortment of scrunchies and hair scarves to pull your hair back in style and show off your tropical-loving lobes!

 

A perfect product you can style with on-the-go … 

Even if you’re not headed to the beach this spring break, nothing is hotter than a head of beachy waves to welcome warmer weather! One of my favorites is Bumble and bumble’s Surf Infusion oil-infused conditioning sea salt spray from Beauty Brands. (Bonus points for the convenient travel-sized bottles available!) Fair warning: after a few days on vacation, spritzing this moisturizing and protectant texturizing spray into your hair, you’ll want to run out to Legends to buy a full-size bottle to use all year! For a legit beach look, I like to spray generously on towel-dry hair and let my locks do their thing while they air dry. If you’re pressed for time, a cool blow dryer mimics ocean wind nicely. Bumble and bumble’s mineral complex enhances your hair’s natural texture and their UV filters protect against sun damage whether you’re on the beach or on the streets this spring break.

Pro tip: while you’re at Beauty Brands don’t forget to stock up on their amazing lines of cruelty free and responsibly sourced SPFs and self-tanners to keep your body happy and healthy on vacation!

 

And last but not least …

 

A great bag you can put it all in …

Basket bags abound this spring season so you won’t have trouble finding one that fits your spring break plans, but this cute straw blush color block one from Old Navy is about as good as it gets! I loved the price point (on sale for $20 when I was there!) and I loved the color options. I obviously went with the blush straw tote (see my pink love above) but the navy and beige option was super chic too. Wherever you find your straw bag and wherever you take it, rest assured you’re carrying one of this spring and summer’s hottest bags that will take you from hammock to happy hour seamlessly.

Pro tip: while you’re at Old Navy, stock up on smaller zippered pouches that allow you to keep all your small items, cosmetics, wallets and electronics organized and safe from the occasional splash inside your new go-everywhere bag!

VALENTINE’S DAY FASHION

Fashion

Released 2/14/19

Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is a great time of the year to embrace rosy hues and signature looks, whether you’re handing out valentines at school or hitting the town with your honey. And just because the holiday has come and gone all-to-quickly, it doesn’t mean you can’t sport a look you love all year long! We braved the cold at Legends Outlets to find some hot style for the occasion.

GROWN-UP GLAM

For a professional look with a nod to the most romantic holiday of the year, Katie wore a super soft, warm blush sweater from H&M, black skinny jeans, and classic black suede pumps that help her transition from the office to happy hour any day of the week. Pile on the jewels or an on-trend hoop earring to add some polished glamour.

PREPPY VIBES

Brayden’s look centered around a preppy quarter-zip sweater featuring sporty stripes on the sleeves, a slim-fit black denim from Carters and classic shell-toe Adidas sneakers from Off Broadway shoes. This put-together look can work for holidays and for casual school dances and functions for Brayden!

LUXE IN LOVE

Sarah’s romantic date night look showed off a flirty yet sophisticated charm with high-end style. Her Kate Spade dress features a trendy modest neckline, topped with the season’s hottest neutral–a blush pink pea coat with a sweet vintage bow detail at the collar. A boxy  nude Kate Spade handbag works for both day and night, especially when paired with strappy sandals with a trendy thick heel from Off Broadway Shoes.

ALL THE HEART (EYES)

The love doesn’t stop with Valentine’s Day! We fell for a fun red sweater with pink sequins in the shape of a heart at H&M. We added some edge to Gracie’s look with a faux leather jacket, cool grey denim, and retro-inspired black sneakers, all from H&M. Gracie can rock this hip and edgy look all school year!

Keep the Valentine’s Day spirit alive all month when you warm up with retailers like Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Books-A-Million, Francesca’s and H&M for tons of options for your sweetheart, kiddos or Galentines!

“aisles of red and gold…CHIEFS KINGDOM”

Fashion

Released 1/25/19

Legends Outlets retailers showed up in a big way for the Chiefs during their playoffs performance, with aisles of red and gold licensed apparel and “Chiefs Kingdom” banners hanging next to some of the biggest brands in the world.

 

While their season may be over, we are keeping hometown pride alive and showing off a few of our fashion MVPs from the post-season. #SuperBowl2020!

 

PETITE ATHLETE

We loved this work-hard/play-hard look for Kinsley! She is wearing cropped Nike leggings from the Nike Outlet and a basic grey undershirt like the ones filling the shelves at Justice and Old Navy outlets. On top, we layered a fun cropped mini-jersey we found at Sportibles that features authentic shiny mesh with a black glittery Chiefs logo on the chest. Whether she’s making plays or cheering on her team, her look is on point!

 

ATHLEISURE DUDE

Dane’s look works at school or at your next watch party. We kept him in his daily denim, like the dynamite selection they have at Crazy 8 and the Gap Outlet this season. Then we layered on a mock-neck thermal Nike dri-fit  long sleeve performance tee from the Nike Outlet and a full-zip licensed Chiefs hoodie from Sportibles. To top off his look and carry his team pride throughout the year, we found an awesome adjustable size baseball cap with a vintage Arrowhead logo at Lids. While we were there we also admired the TONS of headwear options, like toddler and youth sizes, as well as trendy tone-on-tone flat-bill snapbacks.

 

TRENDY TEEN

In true fashion, Hannah is keeping her hometown pride lowkey with on-trend fashion pieces and a subtle nod to her home team’s latest fave – Patrick Mahomes! We found a cute screen printed raglan tee at Sportibles, where we are loving the huge assortment of Chiefs apparel which isn’t limited to traditional logo hoodies! Also at Sportables was a ton of cool headwear choices. We snagged this trendy beanie there because we were into the more fashion-forward color palette and can’t get enough of the pom-pom details this winter. Hannah’s look is completed with some distressed denim and a cute wedged sneaker.

 

NOT-SO-SPORTY SUPPORTER

Whether you’re just not that into athletics or your moral support is more about making the snacks for the big game, Sarah understands. For her Chief’s look, she went with a striped mustard-colored layering tee under a super soft, bright red, chenille mock-neck red sweater. These pieces are from Old Navy and the options are limitless when it comes to these two hot colors this season! Black skinny jeans complete the casual vibe and you can find those at the Banana Republic or J. Crew outlets. A pair of trendy tassel earrings add to the fashion-forward approach to her gameday outfit and a pair of retro Nike Cortez sneakers (like the ones they have on sale at the Nike Outlet!) give her look an athleisure vibe.

 

PRO TIP: Keep the faith alive and start shopping for your 2019-2020 season looks now while stores start marking down football season apparel and accessories in preparation for new spring merchandise! You’ll be glad you did when we cheer our Chiefs on to Super Bowl L.I.V. 2020!

Easy Holiday Outfits for the Kids

Fashion

Released 12/21/18

From family functions to New Year’s Eve celebrations, there’s still time to save on holiday styles for the kids at Legends Outlets! We sent legendary stylist Sarah Hagler to Gymboree Outlet, H&M and OshKosh B’Gosh/Carter’s to scout the best styles for the season, and put together three different looks for models Reece, Kinsely and Dane. Here’s what she found:

Festive Preppy

Dane is ready for a family Christmas celebration in this fun holiday outfit. We paired his festive sweater with some beautiful red chinos from H&M. To add another component to his look, we layered a plain white button-up shirt under his sweater, which we picked up from OshKosh B’Gosh/Carter’s – a great place to shop for easy and classic basics! For the shoes, we wanted to go with something a little bit nicer than sneakers, so we scored these brown boots from H&M, and he loved them!

Classic Colors

For Reece’s look, we opted for a classic color palette pairing a plaid tartan dress with gold sparkly tights from H&M – an outfit she can easily wear to church with the family. We also picked up some adorable ballet flats from H&M to match her cute red bow for an extra pop of holiday spirit. This look is great because it offers different layers and transitional pieces that can be worn over and over again, like the white fur vest we also found at H&M. Reece can throw it on with jeans and wear it to school all winter long!

Fun Sparkle

We decided that Kinsely is ready for a New Year’s Eve party in this sparkly style! We scored her gray sweater, blue sparkly skirt and silver handbag at Gymboree Outlet for a steal! And because you can’t have enough sparkle on New Year’s Eve, we paired her festive outfit with silver tights from H&M and fun shimmery booties from OshKosh B’Gosh/Carter’s. In this outfit, Kinsely is definitely ready to welcome the New Year in style!

Like what you see? Come visit us this holiday season to score these styles and more!

TRANSITIONAL PIECES FOR YOUR FALL WARDROBE

Fashion

Released 9/6/18

We took a cue from ready-to-wear runway shows this fall and went shopping to add a few key transitional pieces to our wardrobes for the fall that’s approaching fast. Here’s what we found …

Click here to watch stylist Sarah Hagler break down the outfits on Kansas City Live, or continue reading below!

ANIMAL PRINT

Animal print is everywhere. If you’re not feeling bold enough to go for the zebra stripe just yet, start simple with a neutral-hued leopard print top like this super-soft chunky sweater we found for Sarah at Kate Spade Outlet. Its super soft texture and roll-neck design make it cozy, while three-quarter sleeves and trendy boxy shape give it movement and breath-ability for the Midwest’s crazy fall weather swings! A great way to tone down the busy print is to pair it with black denim (we chose these raw edge, distressed crops from Francesca’s.) To kick the look up a notch, we matched her sweater to her handbag with a leopard print and black leather mini backpack from Kate Spade Outlet, and a rich pair of burgundy suede mule loafers we picked up at Off Broadway Shoes. 

WESTERN WEAR

Western wear is all the rage right now and the best part is that the trend touches so many parts of fashion, you can incorporate as little or as much as you want! We went low-key cowboy with Sammy’s look, sticking with subtle hints of this classic trend. We centered her look around a terra cotta colored prairie dress. We loved this one we found at Francesca’s for its flowy midi-length construction, pockets, sashed waist, button-front details and beautiful floral embroidery at the shoulders – all characteristics to look for in a whimsical, western-inspired piece to enjoy all season. We topped off her look with a floppy hat from Banana Republic Factory, some brown leather booties from Off Broadway Shoes (bonus points for the strap and buckle details), and a rich wine colored purse from Francesca’s featuring a popular wicker canteen design.

MODEST FLORALS

Modesty dressing is an actual thing, so get used to higher necklines and longer hemlines with this season’s hottest looks. On top of that, floral is still going strong with darker hues for fall, so we couldn’t say no to this darling dress from Kate Spade Outlet, featuring a high neck and ruffled midi hemline. This dress is sleeveless, so we gave Rebecca an extra layer for the cooler weather, with an ultra chic olive-colored suede moto jacket from Banana Republic Factory to add some edge. Completing the look, a tough combat boot from Off Broadway Shoes makes this outfit work for day or night in any weather – adding cool factor with the very popular shoe design.

Legendary Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

News

Released 6/12/18

Father’s Day is coming up quick and shopping for Dad can be difficult, but don’t panic if you haven’t gotten your gift(s) yet. Our stylist Sarah Hagler stopped by Legends Outlets to pick out some last-minute gifts that are suitable for every type of father.

 

Click here to watch Sarah break down all the gift ides on KSHB 41 Action News, or continue reading below!

 

Father’s Day is fast approaching but there’s still time to grab some great gifts for Dad. And just because you may be running low on time, it doesn’t mean you can’t still get a cool, thoughtful gift – and stay on budget!

 

Our favorite go-to spot for gifting is definitely Books-A-Million (BAM). This year, at the top of our gotta-give list is this Crosley Cruiser Deluxe portable record player. While these aren’t new to the marketplace, we are loving this idea for lots of reasons. From their more-competitive-than-ever price point, to their portability and bluetooth capabilities, these vintage looking turntables are sure to please dads from all walks of life.

 

Bonus: vinyl is in the midst of an epic comeback. Buy your dad a turntable and help him start or add to his record collection! This could be the beginning of a fun tradition, if you want to build his music library with his favorite oldies and new releases that are featured in BAM’s extensive vinyl assortment.

 

If your dad is a little more new school, be sure to check out BAM’s collection of smartphone accessories. Our favorites include a bright green bluetooth speaker with surprising battery life and sound power, a retro gaming console to play his favorite Nintendo games on any modern display, a virtual reality headset, and a Gameboy style device for more gaming fun for dad!

 

This may sound crazy, but BAM also has … books! And we are loving them as a super thoughtful gift idea for any dad. Consider nonfiction books that support his hobbies like the titles we found about craft beer, cocktails, history and sports. Whatever your dad is into, this is your chance to show him you support his interests!

 

While you’re at it, throw in a handsome journal like the leatherbound one we found, or some cute novelty quote books made to feature the words of the men in your life. Fiction collector editions are also a big hit with superfans, like the beautifully bound and gift boxed Sherlock Holmes set we found.

 

Our next favorite store for Dad is Eddie Bauer Outlet, naturally. This year we are loving their cool collection of outdoor-ready SPF clothing. We grabbed a trendy teal plaid button down and a pair of staple khaki cargo shorts that will take him from a long hike to a family barbeque in one stylish outfit. Waterproof rain jackets are always a popular gift – especially this time of year with the unpredictable midwest weather we love so much!

 

We also grabbed a handy stowaway backpack while we were at Eddie Bauer Outlet – a favorite for traveling dads because they tuck away in a small pouch then open up for 20 liters of storage. Last but not least: a super handy folding camp table! We loved this for the versatility and novelty of the idea – whether it’s for your dad who enjoys roughing it in the woods or hosting his friends at a tailgate!

 

Finally, we couldn’t share our favorite Father’s Day gift ideas without featuring the king of all coolers – the Yeti Roadie 20!! We got this one from Cavender’s – a great spot for the outdoor or rural dad. Its ColdLock Gasket means Dad’s ice stays colder longer, and its “No Sweat” design means he’ll never be stuck mopping up a mess. With its compact body and rotomolded construction, this small but mighty outdoor cooler is ready for whatever Dad has in store for his big holiday weekend. We threw in a gift card to Eddie Bauer Outlet and Sporting KC tickets for the ultimate Dad’s Day gift pack!

 

Oh and did we mention you can WIN the Yeti, Eddie Bauer gift card and Sporting KC Tickets?! It’s true! Just visit the ‘Events’ tab on our website and click the Father’s Day event to enter for your chance to win this awesome haul for your favorite guy!  

Summer Shoe Trends

Fashion

Released 6/6/18

Summer is here and so are some serious footwear moments we want to share with you! Trends are happening across the spectrum from sneakers to stilettos and this year, they’re easier than ever to get into. Let’s dive right in, shall we?

 

Great news for you high-heel haters: the biggest trend we are seeing this summer revolves around athletic shoes! Journeys knows where it’s at with this trend and we grabbed the following sneakers there to highlight the biggest looks …

 

First up, look for the “futuristic sneaker” everywhere this summer. This features a sock-style body, reflective colors, sleek designs, and minimal laces or closures. We got these Pumas at Journeys and would love to pair them with a sleek jogger pant and racerback tank with strappy details.

 

Next up is the bold color in your retro-inspired sneaker. These New Balance 998s feature a classic body style with suede construction in a sweet berry color. We’d pair these Journey jewels with a fun midi dress in a floral print to really make that purple pop!

 

Also hot this summer is cool pastels. These baby blue Adidas sneakers are from Journeys too and feature a feminine coral logo on the tongue and would look great with a cropped straight leg light-wash distressed denim pant and a breezy linen button down.

 

Onto the opposite end of the spectrum are the highest of heels, which are sticking around another season to show off your pedicure! We picked these up at Off Broadway Shoes and are loving the variety we saw there. We are focusing on three of our favorite trends for this season …

 

Plastic. Yes, plastic! These Bebe stilettos feature shiny clear plastic straps and an ultra high heel. Save these saucy numbers for a night out and pair them with a short dress to make your legs look a mile long.

 

Ruffles. The feminine flair of a blush colored suede ruffle-toe stiletto will always be romantic to us. Dress these Mark Fishers up with a day dress for your best friend’s wedding or dress them down with a distressed boyfriend jean for a flirty, laid back look at brunch or dinner.

 

Florals. You can’t go wrong with florals this season. We love the cheery print on these Michael Shannon stilettos, and the dainty ankle strap is positively dreamy. Make these your statement shoe with a little black dress or dress them down like the ruffled heels for a cool juxtaposition of vibes on a night out on the town.

 

We can’t do vacations and pool parties without flats, so here are our favorite trends in the middle of the shoe spectrum for you …

 

Birkenstock is enjoying its full-fledged comeback, but we wanted to find a more original style so we opted for these earthy, laid back slides from Dolce Vita at Off Broadway Shoes. The hemp wrapped midsole and the contrast stitching make these the perfect casual slide for all your summer looks – from a sun dress to shorts.

 

Also giving us lowkey hippie vibes we love are these Michael Shannon sandals featuring the popular toe-ring style and a minimalist black leather band. These boho sandals are made for tourist jaunts and chill picnic scenes with any shorts and tank tops you pair them with!

 

Step up your flats game this summer with an embellished mule. These Zigi Soho mules feature a plush velvet outer, studded with chunky pearls and crystals. We loved this pair because they could be a great transitional shoe between the seasons and could also work for business or party style outfits!

 

Add a little summer flair to your closed-toed look with these Restricted d’orsay flats, featuring a distressed linen upper and a super fun fruit print. We’d love to see these cheeky pineapples with an otherwise business-casual outfit or with a tailored pair of high waisted shorts.

 

Last but certainly not least is one of the biggest shoe trends of the year – kitten heels! We are loving kittens because they add a nice lifted, dressed up look to any outfit, but are functional and have a chic shape.

 

We took the kitten heel and added a fresh pop of color to these open toed sandals. They feature a cute tie detail around the ankle for added fun. We’d pair these with culottes and a chambray shirt for an airy, preppy look.

 

Since it’s wedding season we also wanted to include a dressy option and went straight for Vince Camuto kitten heels at Off Broadway Shoes. These slingback suede mini-pumps feature a super sleek and vintage design with a deep vee at the vamp to elongate your leg and add some drama to your look. Pair these with any LBD for weddings or with a tailored cropped pant and high-low button down blouse for a retro vibe.

Legendary Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

News

Released 5/8/18

Mother’s Day is right around the corner but if you’re in a panic about what to get the women in your life who have done so much for you, never fear. Our stylist Sarah Hagler made a quick stop at Legends Outlets and came away with tons of great ideas for the last-minute shopper.

 

Click here to watch Sarah break down all the gift ides on KSHB 41 Action News, or continue reading below!

 

Take advantage of the warm weather and go score yourself some affordable and thoughtful gifts for the ladies you love! Here’s how … For starters, whose mom doesn’t love a Coach handbag? Our favorite one this season is a structured pink shoulder bag we found at the Coach Outlet. We tied a cute mauve silk handkerchief on the strap for some added flair and bonus style.

 

One of our favorite stops at Legends Outlets when it comes to gift-giving is always Francesca’s Outlet. From totally of-the-moment fashion pieces like this gauzy navy and white striped wrap and bright tassel necklace, to seasonally on-point handbags like this straw clutch with bold stripes, we are never disappointed when we look for high-style accessories there. Francesca’s also carries a wide variety of giftable health and beauty supplies like these Rose bath salt cubes.

 

If you are looking to pamper mom this year, look no further than Beauty Brands, where we found salon brand gift sets like AG hair products and Clarins skin care. We also love the versatility of a gift card for spa services like manicures, pedicures, facials, and hair styling.

 

Another classic idea came to us at the Bath & Body Works Outlet where we scored a peachy collection of fragrances that looks just as good as it smells! We are loving Bath & Body Works’ line of “Pretty as a Peach” fragranced body splash, body wash, shea butter body cream, and candles for this time of year. We threw on a glam golden pineapple candle topper to complete the collection’s fresh and fruity theme.

 

One stop at The Cosmetics Company Outlet loaded us up on so many moms’ favorite beauty standard: Clinique! You can’t go wrong with this good-for-your-skin brand when you give her a fun sun protection travel kit in a cheery yellow bag like we found. Of course they also carry a variety of Clinique’s famous staple products you can shop for individually too, as well as bright canvas totes and other fun cosmetics accessories.

 

For the fashionable mom, we grabbed a gorgeous pair of Tory Burch sunglasses from the Sunglass Hut Outlet. We love this pair because it features a very trendy oversized modified cat eye shape and a cool blue tinted tortoise shell frame that you have to see to believe. The quality and cool factor would make these a noteworthy gift for any mom this year.

 

Another stop we have to make every time we are shopping for gifts is is the Books-A-Million Outlet, where we picked out a new release cookbook by singer Martina McBride, along with a fun graphic meal tracker notepad. With endless books and tons of beautiful notepads and journals, BAM can hook you up with a thoughtful, useful gift for Mom this Mother’s Day. As a fun add-on, we grabbed some floral painted stemless wine glasses from T.J. Maxx to accompany her healthful gift!

 

If you’re on the market for something sentimental for Mom, do not miss the Helzberg Diamonds Outlet’s touching collection of keepsake jewelry. Our favorite is this diamond mother and baby pendant in sterling silver and 14 karat rose gold.

 

Last but not least, for the chicest mom, we got so many great ideas at the new Kate Spade Outlet. It was hard to pick, but our favorites included a cheery leather wallet in a fresh poppy red with tons of storage inside, the ultimate springy crossbody bag in a floral printed leather, and everyone’s go-to bag style this year – the leather mini backpack in mauve.

 

If you’re like us and having a hard time deciding between all the great ideas, you can always grab a gift card at any of your favorite Legends Outlet stores, including the movie theater and restaurants OR just get a Legends Outlets gift card and let Mom choose how to spend on her day!

What to Wear: Spring Transitional Fashion

Fashion

Released 3/5/18

It may still be a little chilly but we are feeling the vibes of the upcoming iconic transitional season in the air. Thanks to finicky midwest late winters and early springs, the secret to having a stylish look for the season is LAYERS. We grabbed a few fresh new pieces to help you spring forward in style!

SOFT AND CHIC

Astrid is showing off so many new looks for the year, taking cues from runway shows with her trench, flowing skirt and variety of pastels. We built her look on a beautiful midi length pleated skirt from Ann Taylor Factory, which features a sophisticated ribbon waist and vertical stripes in the season’s favorite colors: soft coral, steely blue, cream, navy and earthy chartreuse. Following up on a recent trend, we mixed her pinks with a super soft, lightweight, boat neck pink sweater from H&M and a Banana Republic Factory Classic Trench in pink. An open-toed perforated high-heeled shootie with lace detailing on the shaft serves as the perfect transitional shoe for the season – providing structure plus a peep-toe to show off your early spring pedicure. We topped off Astrid’s look by piling on shiny accessories from franscesca’s Outlet including a sparkly cocktail necklace with pink, white and blue stones and a light blue crystal beaded lariat necklace with trendy gold fringe. Oversized rose quartz stud earrings complete the look.

MODERN PREPPY

Sammy is freshening up a classic look with this season’s staples. We started with a basic skinny jean from Gap Factory and topped it with a crisp oxford featuring a springy sea green stripe from H&M. Spring is a great time to use your blazer as a jacket, so we did just that with the iconic Schoolboy Blazer from J.Crew Factory. With brass button detailing and timeless navy cotton construction, this will be a jacket you wear all year long! To incorporate the season’s obsession with florals, we found a beautiful, gauzy watercolor inspired scarf from H&M. This not only adds style to a basic look, but also doubles as some warmth for chilly spring mornings. (Bonus tip: scarves and accessories are an easy, affordable way to add trendy accents to your existing wardrobe. Here, we incorporated a big upcoming trend, yellow, with florals in one inexpensive piece!) We rounded out Sammy’s preppy look with a stoney blue tassel loafer from J. Crew Factory – an excellent source for all the coolest menswear inspired footwear for ladies this season, including d’orsay flats, penny-loafer inspired mules, and multiple color options in the tassel loafer. A pair of cool colored tortoise shell shades in a modern round shape with mirrored lenses means she’s ready for the sun to shine!

Our advice: Take advantage of the warmer days and pick up a few signature spring items to freshen up your wardrobe at Legends Outlets! By adding a few key pieces to your wardrobe, you can welcome the warm weather with open arms!

2017 Holiday Gift Guide

Fashion

Released 12/18/17

The holiday season is off to a festive start at Legends Outlets! We put together a few of our favorite things to please even the pickiest friend or family member on your list this year …

First stop: Books-A-Million for so much more than just books. However, we could not pass up a stop at their ultra festive holiday collection of children’s books! What a great idea to start a new tradition with your family this year with a classic or modern holiday storybook you can share together!

Other bookish things we loved included the Hamilton Collector’s Bundle featuring the bestselling Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda, a behind-the-scenes look at the Tony Award winning musical, the 2-CD soundtrack, and the biography that started it all – Alexander Hamilton, by Ron Chernow. Exclusive to Books-A-Million, this set is perfect for history fans and musical fans alike.

While at BAM we also shopped in the tech department to see what we could find for everyone’s favorite techies and we weren’t disappointed! Our favorite was the variety of retro HD gaming consoles, which plug into modern entertainment options and allow you to play old-school favorites in high definition! The RetroN 5 allows you to play your favorite NES, SNES, Super Famicom, Genesis, Mega Drive, Famicom, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and GBA cartridges on one system.

Other high-tech options include an endless assortment of headphones and earbuds like the cool green Deep Bass DJ headphones we found. At $30 that’s an affordable gift idea!

Books-A-Million also has tons of great journals and planners to choose from, as well as a large inspirational and spiritual section, and amazing cookbooks like the Pioneer Woman’s latest book The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Come and Get It!: Simple, Scrumptious Recipes for Crazy Busy Lives, which is sure to please the foodie in your life. With its release date just this past October, it’s a hot new gift idea for the season.

If you’re looking to bridge the gap between foodie and techie, look no further than Kitchen Collection, which is where we found all the hottest kitchen gadgets like the NuWave Brio Air Fryer. The year’s coolest way to cook delicious, crispy foods with only a fraction of the fat just got better when we realized Kitchen Collection was offering 30% off!

Our next stop was Under Armor Factory House for the hottest athletic brand that everyone is wearing this year. And if you’re not sure about buying your friend or family member clothes, don’t worry. We found a ton of cool gift ideas like footballs and soccer balls, water bottles, sunglasses, stocking hats and beanies, socks, hair accessories, and bags. From the playground to pro sports, Under Armor has your athlete covered this holiday season.

If you’re looking for something a little more relaxing than sportswear, head over to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory like we did and score yourself some delicious sweet treats. We picked up a beautiful platter of assorted cookies, candies and treats, as well as a beautifully appointed gift basket featuring a variety of sweets like their gorgeous and decadent truffles. This is our go-to suggestion if you’re shopping for someone you don’t know very well or for the person who has it all!

Last but not least, we can’t forget the fashionista! We visited francesca’s Outlet because they literally have it all when it comes to stylish clothes, accessories and gift ideas. Again, if you’re not sure about buying clothes because your fashion-forward friend already has it all together, then think about cute accessories like a hooded poncho, a funky watch and bracelet gift box, hair scrunchies and a fun stocking cap.

Pro Tip: Still looking for the perfect stocking stuffers? Shop the check-out area of your favorite stores for fun novelty gifts, gift cards and seasonal stuff that they have there just for you! The Legends Outlets office also carries gift cards for the entire mall in any denomination you want to give to your friends and family this holiday season!

Fall Boot & Coat Trends

Fashion

Released 11/3/17

The days are getting shorter and there’s a chill in the air. For us that only means one thing … time to layer on the stylish jackets and chic boots for fall!

COZY CHIC

Astrid is ready for a fall sporting event or hitting the sidewalks for some serious holiday shopping in her comfy yet cute look. We love this puffy coat by Guess we found at Wilson’s Leather because of its versatile shape with this year’s stand-out color trend: rose gold. The removable fur-trimmed hood, shimmering finish, and high-quality quilted detailing make this a grown-up version of your favorite outdoor gear. We topped off her casual look with a suede ballcap, also from Wilson’s. Dark-wash skinny jeans from Gap Outlet and a funky, lace-up combat boot from Off Broadway Shoes give her style that will travel with her through this busy time of year.

SLEEK AND EDGY

Anna is doubling up on this season’s jacket trends with a leather trench coat by Calvin Klein from Wilson’s Leather. The double-breasted lapel and waist-cinching belt are hallmarks of this classic jacket, but the sheen of leather gives this look an undeniable edge that we took to the next level with distressed dark-wash denim skinny jeans from Gap Outlet. We finished her night-out-worthy look with ankle booties featuring a side zipper and a chunky stacked heel from Off Broadway Shoes.

FRESH TAKE ON CLASSIC STYLE

Sammy is wearing a very 2017 version of the classic peacoat, with the addition of shiny gold double-breasted buttons and gleaming gold-zippered pockets. The season’s favorite color, burgundy, also updates the traditional cut with a soft, boucle texture. We dressed up her look with black denim from Gap Outlet tucked into super chic over-the-knee (OTK) suede boots from Off Broadway Shoes. Everyone’s favorite OTK boot got an update with this pair, featuring a luxe, mirrored gold accent on a thick heel.

BONUS

Sarah, our stylist, got in on the fun with some super fashionable velvet sock boots from Off Broadway Shoes. There are a ton of varieties of this fall’s biggest velvet boot trend, from basic black to exciting pops of color, to the ultra-trendy floral print that Sarah is wearing. The block heel and slight platform provide the right amount of lift for a holiday party or fashionable night out.

Whether you’re feeling the black boot vibes like we were, or looking for a warm brown or cool neutral, this season calls for all-things boots! And, you won’t have trouble finding the shape, color and style that suits you when you shop at Legends Outlets. The same goes for outerwear too! With a ton of variety at low prices, you can have a coat for every day of the week this fall!

Halloween Outfits That Work All Year

Fashion

Released 10/27/17

Halloween is coming soon but don’t be scared! Legends Outlets is your one-stop shop for on-trend costume staples that will work in your wardrobe all year long. Legendary stylist Sarah Hagler stopped by Charming Charlie, Francesca’s Outlet, Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse, Wilson’s Leather Outlet, Old Navy Outlet, Banana Republic Factory Store and J.Crew Factory to put together these last minute Halloween looks for less.

Click here to watch the entire TV segment on Kansas City Live, or continue reading below!

SCARECROW
Astrid is rocking the year’s biggest denim trend: a fresh take on overalls! These light wash overalls from Francesca’s Outlet feature brass button detailing up the front that updates her timeless workwear. We layered on a cute flannel button-down, and a versatile utility field jacket from Old Navy Outlet to keep her warm on chilly Midwest nights. Cognac colored booties from Off Broadway tie together the rural look, along with a straw Safari hat with coordinating band from Charming Charlie. For added character, we painted on rosy pink scarecrow cheeks, and a cute brown nose.

WITCH
What’s Halloween without a witch? Anna’s versatile LBD makes the perfect base for this eerie look. She is wearing a three-quarter length bell sleeve shift dress from Banana Republic Factory Store that features a raw lace edge, providing a subtle goth look for Halloween, but a classic detail for future special events and holiday parties this winter. We completed her look with an edgy, open-toe velvet bootie and wide-brim floppy hat from Off Broadway, and a funky geometric pendant necklace and furry clutch from Charming Charlie. To enhance her look, we gave Anna a moody purple smokey shadow and subtle cat eye-lined lids.

ZOMBIE
Walking Dead fans, rejoice! Your Halloween costume couldn’t be easier – or warmer! We stuck with a neutral color palette for Caleb’s outfit, which includes chinos and a tech vest, plus a dual-layered knit hood and rugged canvas jacket from Wilson’s Leather. We added to his look with tough brown combat boots from Off Broadway, which include a two-tone brown leather and nubuck upper, and a cool zipper accent up the side. For this look, it’s all about survivalist style, so you can’t go wrong with lots of layers! We finished Caleb’s style off with blue-ish hued eye sockets for an extra-creepy zombie vibe.

By getting creative with your shopping, you can make an easy, affordable Halloween costume out of the latest trends like we did. Show us your Legends Outlets Halloween ensembles using #LegendsKC.

Plan ahead and travel safely during solar eclipse

News

Released 8/15/17

Kansas Department of Transportation News 

On Aug. 21, a total solar eclipse will occur as the moon passes directly in front of the sun, darkening the sky. With increased traffic anticipated across the state as people travel to view the eclipse, the Kansas Department of Transportation, Kansas Turnpike Authority, and Kansas Highway Patrol advise travelers to plan ahead, be patient, avoid distractions, and practice safe driving habits.

Travelers across the state are encouraged to follow these tips to drive safely on the day of the eclipse:

  • Allow plenty of travel time to reach a safe place for viewing, as roads may be congested due to increased traffic.
  • Do not take photos or wear the eclipse sunglasses when driving.
  • Do not pull over to the side of the highway to view the solar eclipse. Find a location off the highway and right-of-way to observe and/or take photos.
  • If you are driving during the eclipse, turn on your headlights and do not rely on your automatic headlights.
  • Expect the unexpected: watch out for other drivers and pedestrians.
  • Plan ahead for fuel needs and always remember to keep your gas tank full during long trips.

It is also important to be prepared in case of emergencies and create a travel safety kit. Some items to consider for a travel kit may include:

  • Non-perishable foods
  • Water
  • A first-aid kit and any prescription medications needed
  • Motor oil
  • Antifreeze
  • Fuel
  • Jumper cables
  • Brake fluid
  • Windshield washer fluid
  • A map

While there are tons of cute options at Legends Outlets, we found the majority of Joey’s look at Crazy 8 – with easy outfits and great deals, this stop is a no-brainer for back-to-school shopping! Joey is rocking a vintage look in some straight-leg denim, a navy buffalo checkered button-down, as well as an ultra-hip cardigan – all pieces that can be layered to last through the fall! Highlighted with shoes and accessories that help show off his personality at school, we completed Joey’s look with some cool Converse leather all-star sneakers from Off Broadway Shoes, and a Marvel Comics backpack from Old Navy Outlet.

We managed to outfit Alex almost head-to-toe in Justice – a major brand score for girls her age! Skinny jeans are a staple this year, as well as lots of layers to complete the transitional season’s look. We topped her Justice jeans with a white t-shirt featuring crochet detailing around the neck, a pink ombre button-down, and an embellished army jacket. Her pink suede boots and sequin lunchbox complete her stylish ensemble!

Middle School
Campbell is hanging on to summer with her mermaid color scheme and Sperry topsider loafers from Off Broadway Shoes. We topped off her skinny jeans with an aqua, blue, green and magenta print cotton top, both from Old Navy Outlet, along with a minty-aqua trench from Forever 21 | F21 Red. We also grabbed her a cheetah backpack at Old Navy Outlet to get into the print-mixing trend that’s happening right now.

High School
For a teen, getting the laid back high school vibe is easy to do by mixing high-quality basics. We dressed Carson in cargo shorts, a white t-shirt, and a red buffalo checkered button-down from J. Crew Factory | Crewcuts – an outfit he can put on repeat all year long, replacing the shorts with denim and throwing on jackets, sweaters and hoodies as the Midwest winter starts to kick in. For now, he is showing his black athletic socks like the kind you can grab at Nike Factory or Under Armour Factory House with a pair of cool Ralph Lauren sneakers from Off Broadway Shoes. We found a super functional, Kenneth Cole backpack for him at Wilson’s Leather, which adds a nice touch and helps elevate his casual look.

College
Legends Outlets has perfect options to let Adrienne go from class to her internship and everything in between on campus this fall. We opted for a structured olive green utility skirt with a cinched waist, a classic striped t-shirt and a denim blazer, all from J. Crew Factory. A chunky tortoise shell necklace, also from J. Crew Factory, dressed up the look to perfection. We balanced the greens and blues in her outfit with a warm blush backpack from Forever 21 | F21 Red. Her perforated blush athletic slip-ons from Off Broadway Shoes keeps the look casual and helps her get where she needs to go on time!

Cavender’s Western Outfitter, one of the original retailers at Legends Outlets Kansas City, has officially relocated to a newly constructed, 16,650-square-foot retail space at 1867 Village West Parkway, Suite D-105.

News

Released 6/8/17

Legends Outlets Kansas City announced preliminary plans to transform the west end of the property into a new community space named “The Lawn.” Plans include the addition of park-like features and interactive elements including a jumbo outdoor LED screen placed on Legends Outlets’ iconic smokestack, facing south, and a smaller LED display facing east toward the property’s Civic Courtyard Fountain.

“Legends Outlets is a shopping destination built on experiences,” said Jennifer Wojcik, Legends Outlets’ general manager.” “The Lawn” will further enhance those experiences by providing shoppers, visitors and families with an engaging gathering space for leisure activities, picnics, screenings and events of all kinds,” Wojcik said.

The development plan also features exciting announcements and changes to some retail spaces, beginning with longtime retailer Cavender’s Western Outfitter. Cavender’s will relocate from its current location at Legends Outlets to a newly constructed, 16,330-square-foot retail space located next to Charming Charlie and facing “The Lawn.” Construction for Cavender’s new location is underway, which includes merging two existing retail spaces: Suites D-105 and D-107. Cavender’s is scheduled to open in its new location mid-July.

Legends Outlets is still working on the final design plans for “The Lawn” but plans to begin construction this summer. All stores will remain open throughout construction. The Legends team is working to coordinate all details of the project to ensure an exceptional experience for all shoppers while they work to enhance the property for the future.

Construction update as of August 2017

Construction and installation of the LED screens is on track for a debut this holiday season. Construction on The Lawn is now slated to begin in February 2018, contingent upon weather. The Lawn will debut in late spring of 2018, just in time for family gatherings, leisure activities, picnics and screenings.

Legendary Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

News

Released 6/8/17

 

Great news: There’s still time to get your dad an awesome Father’s Day gift! And just because June 18 is almost here doesn’t mean you have to settle for anything less than thoughtful for the father figure in your life. That’s because Legends Outlets totally has you covered. Our team made a quick stop at various stores and picked up tons of stuff for all kinds of dads at all kinds of price points!

Click here to watch our stylist Sarah Hagler break down all the gift ides on KSHB 41 Action News, or continue reading below! 

The first place we stopped was Books-A-Million, where we found a super diverse assortment of gift ideas. From the techy dad to the cool dad, this place legitimately has it all. On the top of our list was a pocket drone! Unmanned aircrafts are all the rage right now, and what better way to get outdoors with dad and learn something new together? The Pocket Drone is on sale right now for $180, too, so it’s a steal (normally priced at $200+). Another hot item for the tech dad is the Immerse Plus Virtual Reality Headset, which couples with his smartphone for an awesome VR experience.

For the cool, collector dad, definitely look into Books-A-Million’s excellent variety of hard and paperback books. Some titles we recommend include The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge by Tony Dungy and Nathan Whitaker, and Shoe Dog, a Memoir by the Creator of NIKE by Phil Knight.

We also loved its vinyl section, where we picked up Bruce Springsteen’s latest album, Chapter and Verse, which would make an awesome combo gift alongside his recently published autobiography, Born to Run – also available at Books-A-Million.

We also had a lot of fun shopping Books-A-Million’s novelty and gadget section, where we picked up a handy multi-use tool that includes a hammer and bottle opener, a BBQ apron, a stainless steel travel tumbler, and a sign that says “BEST DAD IN THE UNIVERSE!”

Next stop was Wilson’s Leather, where we picked up a couple high-end gifts for the traveling dad. More than just leather coats, Wilson’s had a ton of cool accessories and travel must-haves for the dad on the go! We scored a beautiful Kenneth Cole Reaction top zip travel kit, and a Wilson’s Leather passport cover. These two thoughtful items topped our list for the dad who seems to already have it all.

Also for the cool dad, you should of course consider stopping at Sunglass Hut. We grabbed two absolute staples – Rayban Wayfarers in black and top-selling Oakley sport shades.

For the sporty dad, definitely check out Sports Nutz. We were blown away by the selection – way more than just jerseys and hats (but those are awesome too)! We fell in love with double-walled stainless beverage glasses that feature dad’s favorite sporting team. To help him show his pride, we also grabbed a car flag, and a shiny chrome decal. Whatever side of the state line you’re from, Sports Nuts has you – and your dad – covered!

To go with the team spirit drinkware, we grabbed a galvanized bucket from Sports Nuts that would make a great base for a customized gift basket for dad. We filled ours with a variety of soda from KC Soda Co., now featuring an assortment of “DAD’s” brand craft sodas. (See what we did there?!)

Of course we had to stop at Eddie Bauer Outlet to shop for our outdoorsy dads! They told us their best selling dad’s gift this year is this amazing packable backpack we picked up in navy blue. They have a variety of colors and sizes but this lightweight travel staple inspired us to grab it and go! Other awesome ideas at Eddie Bauer include a nylon-lined fleece camping blanket with a soft and fuzzy layer that protects from the elements and also rolls up with a great traveling strap. We also scored a really popular Insulated Backpack Cooler – perfect for picnicking or packing snacks on a hike. We also loved their staple camping lantern – an affordable and thoughtful must-have for any dad who loves the great outdoors!

And last but not least, what kind of Father’s Day would it be without a fabulous tie!? We stopped at Brooks Brothers Factory Store to nab their St. Jude’s Striped Tie. If you’re looking for a gift for dad that gives back, definitely pick this stylish tie: Brooks Brothers donates $10 to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital with the purchase of every St. Jude’s tie and pocket square, now through June 18. Another great option for the dapper dad is a classic Brooks Brothers watch with a signature fabric watch band.

With more than 100 stores – and new stuff on sale every day – Legends Outlets really is your one-stop shop for all things Father’s Day!

2017’s “It” Color for Spring

Fashion

Released 5/10/17

Take a look around just about any department store and you’ll see there’s a definitive “it” color this spring: pink! And we aren’t talking about your grandmother’s pink either. Today’s hottest hue is as versatile as it is varying, from neutral blushes and subtle rose shades to signature pops of color like vibrant magenta and warm coral. Not only can anyone wear this season’s signature color, but the variety of options make it perfect for mixing and matching.

We put together a couple great examples of this season’s signature shade from the designers and retailers at Legends Outlets!

Aaliyah (pictured on the left) is wearing a coral romper from Banana Republic Factory Store – a perfect look that you can dress up or down with your accessories and shoe choices. We dressed her look up just a little by adding a mid-height floral wedge by Nine West that we picked up at Off Broadway Shoes. Both the ankle strap and floral accent are big shoe trends this season, too, and this particular style featured lots of fuchsia, coral and turquoise shades, which helped open up a ton of possibilities for mixing and matching the rest of her accessories. To do that, we stacked some rhinestone stretch bracelets we found at Charming Charlie in varying shades of aqua and magenta with gold-tone metallic bases. We tied in another big trend this season by layering her necklaces – a seafoam rhinestone collar-length strand and a long gold-tone tassel necklace we got from Banana Republic Factory Store. Aaliyah is also carrying a rich faux leather teal fold-over clutch with a tasseled zipper detail we found at Charming Charlie.

Betsy (pictured on the right) is showing how versatile the pink trend can be with a suiting option that would look just as good in any office as it would on a day trip. We found the cotton/linen “Schoolboy” blazer in pink at J. Crew Factory and knew it would be the perfect staple for the season. For Betsy’s look, we dressed the blazer down a little by layering it over a lightweight chambray button-down in a medium wash that we also picked up at J. Crew Factory. Another hot item for the season is the skinny white denim pant we scored at Gap Outlet – an affordable cornerstone that should be on everyone’s shopping list for spring and summer this year! For the tricky transitional period between seasons in the Midwest, we went for a neutral stone-colored, suede, open-toed bootie from Off Broadway Shoes; this one features perforated details which help lighten up the look for the upcoming warm weather. For a bit of sparkle, we snuck in a pink and iridescent rhinestone cocktail necklace from the Banana Republic Factory Store under Betsy’s otherwise casual denim top.

From the boardroom to the boardwalk, this spring’s signature color has what it takes to take your style everywhere you need to go. Show us how you’re styling your favorite shade of pink this season using #LegendaryStyle!
