My Girly Day Out At Macy’s Secret Garden Event

I am a member of the Everywhere Society and Everywhere has provided me with compensation for this post about Macy’s. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. 

 For having four daughters you would think I would be a girly girly for sure but alas I am not. I never paint my nails and am not even a huge fan of makeup. My girls are the opposite, so when I heard about  the Macy’s Secret Garden Event and that there would be a fashion Show.  I thought it would be a perfect girls day out with my two oldest daughters.

Even though I am not super girly I do love to shop! I love going downtown to the City Creek center and their Macy’s is huge and has so many great brands and styles. They were having a The Secret Garden Event the whole weekend. As we got into Macy’s we caught the end of a beautiful spring flower wreath demonstration. Even though it snowed the next day I am so ready for spring and going to this event helped with that longing.


As we sat down for the Secret Garden Fashion Show there were people handing out super fancy orderves. Oh my goodness they were good. My daughters and I favorites were the cheesecake pops and the mini sandwiches with Brie. We felt pretty spoiled.


Before the models came out my oldest had to pose on the runway. She is getting way too grownup and tall and I don’t think I will let her out of the house anymore.


The fashion show was hosted and put together by Alicia Richmond of Chic On A Shoe String. She did a fabulous job of showing off Macy’s cute spring fashions. Beautiful bright colors were featured prominently. I am loving the orange that is really popular this season. The handbags she paired with the outfits were also adorable! here are a few of my favorite looks.

Loved the boyfriend jeans on this model. I am huge fan of casual clothes

I also loved the dresses! I am so in need of some cute spring dresses. I loved getting ideas.

I am a huge T-Shirt fan. I would wear one every day of the week if I could pull it off and I loved Alicia’s advice that a T-shirt should always do something for your shape wether it have a scooped neck or something else that makes it fit right. I also loved that she mentions that matchy matchy is no longer as big of a deal.  You can match gold and silver and colors and patterns and have it look really great.

My daughters loved the fashion show so much and immediately after they were ready to get their shop on.


We went to their size and I found so many really cute clothes for them on mega clearance. I Love Macy’s clearance! We scored a cute pair of jeans and two tops for my girls each item no more than $7 dollars. I was also super happy to see some adorable longer shorts for my girls! I have a tough time finding not so short shorts for my growing girls. They had the best time shopping and trying on clothes. Macy’s has such a great variety.



I had so much fun spending the day with my daughters at Macy’s. Maybe being extra girly every once in awhile isn’t so bad after all.
