In life, there are many simple joys. Think long walks on the beach, impromptu Instagram scrolls, and shopping—lots and lots of shopping.\nSeriously, give me a credit card and just two hours, and you can bet I'll do some serious damage (in the best possible way, of course).\nDixie Outlet Mall\nAnd when shopping meets culture and community, you can bet I love partaking in one of my fave pastimes that much more.\nTake, for example, Dixie Outlet Mall. With over 120 stores, Dixie Outlet Mall is pretty much a shoppers paradise. Like, forget about vacaying in the tropics—we'd rather be out of office at Dixie, 'cause honestly that's just how much we love 'em.\nView this post on Instagram The #DixieLivingRoom is a 3,100 sq.ft. multipurpose rental venue you don't want to miss!
