I used to think of Nordstrom as a ritzy big box store but now after shopping I've come to see it more as a reasonable retail store when you're considering high quality clothes and accessories! Some of my favorite brands that are super affordable are Halogen, Caslon, and Lush.

One of the awesome things about this sale--- NEXT season's styles are on SALE (NOT summer stuff that you won't be able to wear in a month or two like other retailers big sales). The sale started last Thursday for cardholders who gained early access to all the goods. BUT the good news is--- the sale is open to everyone starting tomorrow!!!! 
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is a great time to stock up on cardigan sweaters, basics, and booties! It is the perfect time to snag transition pieces for heading in to Fall. You can grab all of these pieces for 40% less than what you would have to pay later. 

On this post I've linked some super awesome staples for your closet that are still available! Because of the early access, some super cute items have already sold out but the ones I have linked are still available for you to shop. And, many of them come in a variety of great colors! With Fall coming up soon you can bet I have stocked up on chunky, comfy sweaters with basic tops to layer underneath! The tops that I have received so far are SO soft too! 



Quick, head over to Nordstrom NOW to grab your favorites before they run out! And, before the sale ends!! Goes through July 21!
Any questions--- Let me know! :)

Tanger Outlet Shopping



 A couple weeks ago a brand new Tanger Outlet shopping center opened 
right around the corner from my house!
The huge shopper in me is so excited about it; yet the budget that I am supposed to be sticking to could be in trouble. ;)
First, if you are from around the area (Grand Rapids, MI) and are interested in visiting the center... here is a link to the Tanger website where you can find a list of the stores you can shop!
Tanger website.

My sister-in-law and niece met me there today to check it out.
Here I will share my experience with you, tips and advice, and my favorite fashion finds spotted!
First, my outfit for the day..


This top is so comfy and cute and LESS than $12!!!
Find it here.


One thing I really liked was that all of the shops were close together and within easy walking distance from one another. I have been to other outlets that are pretty spread out and you find yourself walking through parking lots to get to other stores. These stores were all mapped out well and had great benches/lights/outdoor decor.


I am so excited that ankle booties are back again this Fall. 
They are SO cute to dress up and down!
Here is a collection found at Old Navy.


Fall and Winter are all about leggings for me! 
I could live in them during these seasons.
These are some found at Express Factory Outlet and my favorite are the Olive colored ones!
They are cargo style and had a cute zipper at the ankle!

 I have a crush on that Olive tone.
I feel like it is perfect for Fall and have found some cute tops and pants in the color.
J.Crew Factory also had the most fabulous Olive colored pants, they felt SO comfy!



Well it wouldn't be a complete shopping trip without a pretzel stop, am I right!?!?
Speaking of food... that would have to be the one MAJOR downfall here. 
There is only a Subway and an Auntie Anne's pretzel shop.
More food options including maybe one or two sit down restaurants would be great additions.


 This jacket is probably my favorite find of the day!
These army/cargo jackets and vests are SO in for Fall.
My sister-in-law purchased this one from the Lucky Brand store and got the greatest deal on it!
Retail: $99; out the door: $32
((That Olive color again!))



This was my one purchase of the day (**sticking to the budget!).
I found this top at H&M!


I wasn't sure what to expect when it came to prices and deals at the outlets.
I found that some of the stores had decent deals but others were very similar prices to the stores you would shop in the mall.

Tanger does offer the TangerClub which is an exclusive offer and reward program.
This may be a great option if you do plan on shopping here a lot. 
It offers rewards for spending levels, surprise offers throughout the year, a birthday reward, and coupon books with each visit to mention a few perks of the club.
There is a one-time $10 fee to join the club.

What are your favorite things about outlet shopping?
Thanks so much for checking out the blog post tonight!!
If you ever need a shopping buddy, or, are in need of something... I can help! :)

Have a great week!
