Looks To Love: Billabong for Summer Fun

Since graduating high school 11 years ago (eek!) I've been wary to saunter in to any "teenager-y" store like Abercrombie, Hollister, Pac Sun and the like.  Something about the blaring music, heavy cheap cologne smell and bevies of giggling sixteen year olds makes me want to run the other way into the comforting arms of upstairs Macy's.  Luckily for me there is online shopping, because after seeing the recent summer additions to the Billabong line, I'm mighty tempted to embrace my inner Justin Bieber lover.  Case in point:

I would have never guessed that the above top, sweater and shorts were fom Billabong. They're so chic and, well, grown up!  I'm very tempted to buy this whole outfit, as it would be equally appropriate taking the girls to the park, going to a matinĂ©e with my hubby, or strolling the boutiques of my favorite beach town with friends.






This dress? I die. And it's only $38.99. Leaves plenty of moolah to splurge on some gorg Kendra Scott studs or ring!

I think any of these adorbs tops would look great with a pair of cropped skinnies.





Last but not least I love this comfy hoodie and can imagine throwing it on over a tank when your outdoor bbq lasts past sundown and turns into smores by the fire.

So what do you think?  Embrace the brand, or leave it for the teeny boppers?

  1. Nooo! Buy them all. I seriously love the first outfit. Please buy it and take pics so I can live vicariously through you. I'll be over here in my maternity mumu cursing the heat.

    The only time I ever step foot into those stores is when I need a bachelorette party outfit...cute, cheap and disposable.

  7. Love the Tilly's dress!!I also find it a bit too much those teenage brands but there is always one or two pieces in their collection that makes walk into their store feeling like 100 years old.... I hate that their sizes are always smaller than the std ones!

  8. I have a $70 gift card to American Eagle Outfitters and no idea what to buy there. All the little cropped cardigans look ridiculous with more than a B cup. LOL. But this billabong thing I can totally get behind. Mixed with some tamer "grown up" things, I think they are super cute! Show those young things how to style this stuff!
