About two weeks ago I got to spend an entire afternoon doing what I do best – shopping. I was lucky enough to get treated to a shopping spree at Cincinnati Premium Outlets and check out how they are getting Cincinnati summer ready with all their current sales and a few new stores! I love going shopping at the beginning of summer to stock up on pieces that I get to wear throughout the season and the Cincinnati Premium Outlets didn’t disappoint. I picked up several amazing pieces for going out, summer strolls, and a ton of athleisure. I am someone that spends majority of my free time in the summer rocking a sundress and I was happy to add to my collection with some pieces from Loft, J.Crew and more. I also snagged a cross body from Coach that you will find on my hip majority of this summer.
Cincinnati Premium Outlets recently opened a Puma store which has amazing deals right now. I snagged a pair of leather white sneakers that I’ve been hunting for all year, as well as some lounge wear for the house and some work out tops. All those things cost me under $100 with their 50-60% off the entire store as well as BOGO 50% off on top of that. You can’t get a better deal.
Get Summer Ready
There is currently an active campaign at CPO to #getsummerready. There are stores with promotions up to 65% off around the outlets and current summer trends such as neons, summer neutrals, lots and lots of coral (which I had to get into as well) are on display. This campaign is active through July 3rd, so make sure you take advantage in the next two weeks!
If you’re not a member already, I highly recommend signing up for their VIP program so you’re first to hear about special deals and promotions.
My first stop was the new Puma store. I’ve been at the outlets dozens of times and have actually never gone to their main athleisure stores such as Nike and Adidas and I was definitely kicking myself for that when I realized just how great the deals are at the outlets. Here I was thinking that I can get the best athleisure deals at TjMaxx.
The big winner at Puma was definitely the pair of white sneakers I picked up. They are literally perfect for everything and are finally going to allow me to complete the dress + sneakers look I’ve been wanting to do for ages. I have already worn them once and got six compliments about them! Yes, I counted.
I also picked up a pair of sweatpants to lounge around in at Puma that I probably have worn at least every other day since purchasing them because they are the most comfortable, practical (mesh pockets for my cellphone, holla) lounge pants ever. And if I for some reason have to step outside in my “comfy” clothes, I’ll still look cute with these sweats on.
The other big winner of the day was this gorgeous coral Coach crossbody. It comes with a gold chain that can be adjusted so you can wear it on your shoulder or as a cross body. I personally prefer crossbodies to anything else so that’s how I have been wearing this bag but I’m now considering going back to snag it in yellow. The bag was available in yellow, pink and coral and choosing one was probably the hardest choice I made during this shopping trip. What a hard life with these difficult choices, I know.
Next successful stop was Loft. While I am not one to wear midi dresses often because I think my height sabotages me looking good in this length, I had to pick up this white floral wrap dress that I will be wearing to either a fancy brunch or some kind of event this summer because the fit was so good, the design was even better and I will never say no to a wrap dress.
A few sandals, tops and dresses later, I was ready to go home to put on a fashion show for my husband which I’m sure he greatly appreciated and showed off all my great purchases. The Cincinnati Premium Outlets never disappoint, and I will definitely be back in September (if not earlier) to do my seasonal, traditional beginning of season shopping spree.
As always, thanks for reading!
