Dear Crissy

Summer finds from JCPenney

Relic Sunglasses

The cute Relic sunglasses above? I found them at JCPenney this week for $15.

Since having Kara in December, I really don’t get out to shop much locally. I’ve been doing most of my shopping online, so it was a really nice treat to pop into JCPenney this week to look around — it had really been too long!

We’re in full swing summer mode around our house, and Evan is even enjoying his blow-up pool already. We’re spending a lot of time out in the sunshine. I needed some lighter colored shoes, and picked up these white cute St. John’s Bay sandals. They are really comfortable, and I found them for only $25.


I also realized while I was shopping that I needed to pick up a few beach towels for the kids to dry off with after a swim, and found these really adorable, bright towels for just $13. I grabbed a few of them.


I also couldn’t resist picking up a cute little outfit for Kara while I was in JCPenney yesterday. What is it about little girl’s clothing that is just so darn irresistible? This little Carter’s 2-piece skirt set was only $9.


So, my little JCPenny shopping trip was really fun, and reminded me how much I needed some personal time to just… shop! I didn’t have time to look for a new bathing suit while I was there (I have to be in the right frame of mind for that task, too haha) but I am going to stop back in this evening to find a suit so I can jump in the kiddie pool this weekend too!

I received a JCPenney gift card to facilitate this review.

    I love JC Penney and their new marketing strategy ~ lowest prices all the time!

    It was interesting to read this and check out the prices. I haven’t been to jcPenny since the new pricing. I used to love their sales and coupons and thought that it wouldn’t be worth shopping there anymore. I’m gad to see that the prices are great and I’ll be making a trip there

    I do quite enjoy JC Penny and what they have to offer-There is a particular brand that I can only find there that fits be PERFECTLY! And I quite enjoy the style of it, too :)

    Like you though, I haven’t been there in quite some time!

    I wish we had a JC Penney where I live because I used to get the most amazing swimwear from there. I also love their clearance section because the markdowns are almost too good to be true.

    jcp has really improved their clothes, shoes over the years….however, i am a little confused over their new sales policy and what days things ar on sale….their prices have steadily increased over the yrs as well….not as good as buys as used to be….
