Better Than Tax Free Weekend with Carolina Premium Outlets

{J.Crew Factory linen stripe top, LOFT scallop shorts (similar) Banana Republic Factory crossbody bag}

Hi Loves! I can’t believe we are already in August! As summer is starting to come to a close, it’s time to start thinking about Back To Fall. I said that because some of us aren’t in school anymore (or have kids who are old enough for Back to School) but with the change in seasons usually comes transition in your wardrobe. Which means it’s time go shopping!

Lucky for you, Carolina Premium Outlets in Smithfield is having their Better Than Tax Free weekend today through Sunday! Which means added bonus savings on top of already amazing discounts. So what better way to prepare for the cooler weather than to score some majorly awesome deals! I’m going to share a few of my favorite fall trends that I scooped up while shopping and that you'll be able to find too! Here we go..

Rose Quartz color of the year fashion trend

This right here is like my dream fall outfit. An easy breezy dress. Denim jacket over top, Ankle boots. I mean - does it get any better than this? I just had to have this combo dress from LOFT. The soft t-shirt like top makes it feel casually comfy, but the pretty skirt makes it feel oh-so-girly and fun! Did I mention the skirt reminds me of Rose Quartz, which is the color of the year for 2016? Holla! You've got to make a stop into LOFT when you visit CPO! 

Soft and Sexy Tank American Eagle

I've told you guys this before, but I recently re-discovered American Eagle Jeans as the best fitting jeans ever! Their "short" length is perfect for petite gals like me and I don't know why, but the distressed options are so danm good. They also have this new line of "Soft & Sexy" tanks and tees. Like "budda" in your hands. This adorable peplum option may or may not have made it's way into my dressing room (plus 3 more colors too!) Obsessed! 

Gold Yellow Laser Cutout tank

I think that I love tanks for fall because the weather is so up and down you never know which way it's going to go. With a blazer or jacket over top, this one from Banana Republic Factory is appropriate for work with a cute pencil skirt. But loose the jacket and throw on jeans and pumps and you've got an instant weekend look too. You can always reach for the blazer again when the temps start to drop at night. This gold will also go really well with my #BADxGameDay series that is starting back up soon. I can't wait!

oversize watches menswear trend for women

Watches on Watches! I don't think I ever really noticed how fantastic the watches are from Fossil until I visited their store at CPO. They have some ah-mazing styles! You have to head over to CPO's Facebook to see which one I picked (such a good fall color) and with all the Better Than Tax Free savings you'll REALLY save big!  

Nine West Mirror Heel Ankle Boots

One motto I tend to live by: A gal can never have too many ankle boots (just don't ask my husband if he feels the same.) When I stopped into Nine West, I thought I fell into ankle boot heaven with all the options they had. These black mirrored heel babies went home with me and I plan on wearing them with everything this fall season. Dresses. Jeans. Shorts and tights. I mean everything. Did I mention they were on MAH-jor sale? Yes, Please!

Nike Marble Print Backpack

Back To Fall is also a great time to buy workout shoes. I don't know why, but I feel like the end of summer season means the deals on sneaks on better. I loved this periwinkle-ish blue color. It's not something I had picked out before, so it was fun to try something new. I've been seeing this marbled print on everything lately, so when I spotted it on Nike apparel and shoes, I knew it was going to be a good Fall Trend. I only wish I was actually going back to school so I could rock this marbled backpack!

Pink Mirror Lens Sunglasses

Mirrored Sunglasses aren't just for the 80's anymore! They are back with a vengeance and won't be leaving anytime soon. Find modern styles like this pair from LOFT to keep you in 2016. I adore the tortoise print and the cat eye shape frames my face nicely. If you follow me on instagram you know I haven't taken these off from the second I scooped them up! 

You guys... there are so many more deals where that came from. I haven't even shown you everything I found! So make sure you're following Carolina Premium Outlets over on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to see everything I scored (that Levi's Jacket is the bomb) Then head over to the center (it's like a 25 minute drive from Raleigh!) or your local Simon Shopping Center to save big on Fall Trends!
