Dressing Room Roundup: Mother's Day Weekend at Ann Taylor Factory Stores

Mamas, daughters, sisters, friends-- the store set at Ann Taylor Factory is one of the best I've ever seen right now. The store is just gorgeous, bursting with color, and my favorite thing ever: Pattern Mixing!! 

Forgive my flat lays because they are some of the hastiest and therefore worst ones I have ever done, thanks to Iris blossoming into full throttle toddler during today's visit to Ann Taylor Factory. If you can't tell what something is in a picture, just ask me! 😘 I nearly lost my mind with this sweet girl. 🙈🙈🙈 You'll see her lurking in some of the pics.  Melissa Smith is such a wonderful woman for trying to entertain Iris while I tried to document all the pretty pieces you'll want to add to your wardrobe. 50% off mailers are out and about so be sure to snag one for yourself. Sunglasses are on sale for $10 too. 

There are so many options. Dresses, shorts, pants, tees and tanks. That zebra print is killing me, it's so cute with chambray and hot pink. And there's a floral romper pictured below that is surprisingly wearable. It looks meh on the hanger but on, SO CUTE. Check it out. It has pockets and rolled sleeves and makes me seriously consider one-piece dressing. Remember that ATF is just at the north Tanger if you're in Myrtle Beach. If you aren't local, Melissa can ship to you. Call her 843-839-9099. Double points happening next weekend for cardholders too so make the most of your spend.  

This stretchy striped top has a boutique feel to it and is really versatile. 

This classic gingham dress is Audrey Hepburn worthy! Add black cat eye sunglasses and your favorite flats and pastel cardigan for a perfect timeless look that you can wear to work or church. 

Check out the pineapple midi skirt that is pictured on the current mailer. There's a scarf and a cardigan in this print too but the scarf is running low in inventory. I managed to snag one off the mannequin for my wardrobe! :) 

If you love teal like I do or you work at CCU, you'll be overjoyed with all of the options in this oceany shade. Tank tops, cardigans, shorts, dresses, necklaces. 

I love this lightweight tweed set with the frayed edges. It works well for a number of ages. In the wardrobing room, I spied it on a girl in her twenties and she looked beautiful in it. Together it's a strong and polished look, and separately you can do so much with each piece. Pair the shell with colored capris or a skirt, and wear the shorts with any color top and cardigan for another polished option. 

These sleeveless tops are a perfect summer staple. Cool, comfortable dressing and lots of visual interest to elevate a basic tank. They look great paired with the cute shorts below.  

I'm not big on loud prints on my tush, but these are really cute and summer is a great time to not take yourself too seriously. Try the elephant shorts with the citron or magenta tanks above. Pair teal, navy or mint with the jungle print. 

Here's another look that reminds me of Audrey H. Classic and pretty and strong and beautiful!! The skirt comes in both petite and regular. You'll see more pairings with it below. 

How cute would this elephant shirt be with colored jeans? Red, mustard, kelly green. 

Here are a few sweet dresses that are just right for warm summer days. 

These shorts are really pretty and are the perfect length. These are a soft blush color and have both a scallop hem and embroidery detailing. To balance the sweetness, I paired them with a gingham shirt tied at the waist. 

Such a Parisian feel from this outfit! I can't wait to wear my red Tieks with this look. The lemon print scarf is 100% silk and so versatile. Wear it on your neck, wrist, around your ponytail, on top of your hair, or tied to your handbag.  

Here's a sweet-tart top in lemon too! 
I actually love the top paired with the seersucker ankle pants because the stripe is smaller. This combo below is great if you want a strong look, but if you prefer something softer, try the smaller stripes in the pant, and the top takes center stage. 

The clutch is a wallet from Thirty-One Gifts. 

Here's the floral romper I mentioned. It looks like a sack on the hanger and will probably be overlooked for that reason, but do yourself a favor and try this on. The look is really fun and versatile. It pairs well with flats or wedges. It's got pockets. If you don't like the romper on, the same pretty print comes in a few different pieces from capris to tops. 

More pattern mixing with the striped skirt that I love! 
This is another great clutch wallet from Thirty-One. It includes a wristlet strap and a cross body strap. 

The zebra skirt is seriously fun! It also looks really boutique to me and works for a range of ages. Here I paired it with a blue shirt and hot pink clutch. It's got more versatility than you may think. Wear it with a white or black top and cobalt flats. Or a magenta tee. Or even a striped jacket pictured above that makes the outfit look like a suit. 

Love this true wrap dress. It comes in petite and regular, and with the 50% off sale, it's priced as low as you'd find at Ross or Marshall's. I don't have to tell you how many different ways you can style this little number. 

Here's the seersucker ankle pants I mentioned above. See how the lemon tops has the spotlight? It's a great look! I love the pop of red from my favorite necklace. 

More zebra love!! Natural colored accessories like this hat give the look a sophisticated safari feel. Add color for a more artsy look. 

This golden gingham is so classic! Here you have the look of a romper from a sleeveless tie-waist top paired with side zip shorts. I love the pop of cobalt against the golden mustard shade. This basketweave blazer is so beautiful. I have it in navy. It has the perfect amount of stretch for comfort and looks sleek with the sleeves rolled and pushed up.   

Here's a few more looks I made at home. 

Hope you enjoyed this installment of Dressing Room Roundup! Treat yourself to something fun and beautiful this Mother's Day. If you don't have an Ann Taylor Factory close by, call Melissa at 843-839-9099 and she can send you a care package.
