Date Night With Danielle: Shopping at Francesca’s

When is the last time you had a little one on one time with yourself? A little alone time to bask in all the glory that is you? With kids, friends, family and significant others, it can be hard to set aside some “me time” to recharge, refocus and pamper yourself. Whether that means taking the evening off to try out a new restaurant, heading to the movies for the afternoon or spending a few hours to get in a little shopping therapy, sometimes you just need to date in dressing roomcoffee mug

Time For Some Retail Therapy

If you’re a fan of a little retail therapy (who isn’t?) then head straight to The Shoppes at Carlsbad. This month we’ll be focusing on what makes this one-stop shop an easy and fun place to indulge in a little alone time. First, head to Francesca’s for gifts for you, your closet (and maybe a friend or two if you’re feeling generous)—there’s literally everything a fashion-forward, trend-setting maven could want for her wardrobe and home. Head-to-toe outfits, including accessories, for under $100? Yes, please!

It’s an add to cart kinda day! (wink-wink)

Spring’s Just Around The Corner

The first day of spring isn’t technically until March 20, but living in San Diego means almost perfect weather year-round. Now that it’s starting to warm up, it’s time to restock your closet with sundresses, light rompers and sandals! From chunky platforms that are reminiscent of the Spice Girls-era to flirty, strappy wedges, you’ll find something new for spring. Grab a linen wrap dress or off-the-shoulder top to add a little warm-weather ware to your closet.

Home Is Where the (Stylish) Heart Is

Picking up a few pieces at Francesca’s is a no brainer (those linen jumpsuits in the window are just calling your name!), but don’t leave without checking out the accessories for your home. Here you’ll find fun candles scented like prosecco and vanilla or incense with names like “Happiness” and “Serenity.” Ahhh. Stock your bar cart with rose gold drink-ware, pick up a beautiful new coffee table book, or snag a rug or succulent for the kitchen.

Fun, Random Shopping Fact: Sears used to sell build-your-own homes in its mail order catalogs.

Accessorize Your Life

There’s something to be said for one-stop shopping. Whether you’re just out for the day with no particular purchase in mind, or you need to find a new outfit for girl’s night out, finding everything you need under one roof—without going to a department store—is the best. Francesca’s has jewelry, bags, hats and sunglasses to help you kick your look up a notch, but they also have ponchos, yoga mats, makeup and luggage. (Any other last-minute packers out there?) Grab a squeak toy for your puppy, a bib for your baby (because they have those too), but most importantly don’t forget to pick up a few things for your date—you.
