Growing up in the Midwest, the mall was an every week staple for me and I'll never forget my excitement (or the denim overalls and mock turtleneck) I wore the day I turned sixteen and could drive myself to my new job at The Gap.  The idea of what a mall can offer you from a premier shopping experience has dramatically evolved since my years spent at Contempo Casual and The Buckle.  In my opinion, Simon is doing it best.  Their modern malls curate a mix of unique shops you won't find everywhere blending designer with high street brands to truly mimic the modern way we dress.  (On any given day you'll find me in Prada boots styled with my favorite $28 ZARA jeans!)  (See where there's a Simon near you.)

This season I'm scouting their best malls to inspire editor approved last minute gifts for everyone on your list.  This weekend I shopped The Westchester and Roosevelt Field, two of my favorites, to bring you my ultimate edit: a trusted resource for gifts that blend what's trending on the runway and street style with the best of what's in store right now.
