Ellen: T.J.Maxx Style Scout Series

March 25, 2013  |  Streetstyle

Ellen was walking through the heart of Santa Monica’s shopping district when I found myself drawn to her optimistic yellow skirt and striped top. Her personal style has that fantastic California cool vibe I love so much! A striped top is also a great way to easily bring your closet up-to-date for spring! The sunny yellow skirt is a perfect way to bring another popular trend – bright tropical color – into your wardrobe as the weather warms up.



I recreated the look using designer pieces I found at T.J.Maxx, including the striped tee, printed skirt and tote handbag! I wanted to balance out the punchy vibe of her yellow skirt with a neutral bag for a casual take on Sunday style. I always spot great finds at incredible prices at T.J.Maxx, and the bag was no different – compare $149 to $260 elsewhere for the same exact piece!


  1. But aren’t most pieces sold at TJ Maxx from previous seasons, hence the discounted price? If that is the case, then your wording may be a little misleading because it seems to imply that other places are selling the exact same piece at the same time but at a higher price. Correct me if I am wrong. Thanks!

  2. Hey G, thanks for your comment! Most items at T.J.Maxx are current season, the buyers are just really smart about how they purchase and the savings are passed down to customers.
