Bright [Wardrobe] on a Budget : Memorial Day Weekend Outlet Shopping–Part 1

I’d like to start this post by saying thank you to all the men and women who have died in their service to the country–for your courage and sacrifice, I am forever grateful!

Chauncey and I just got back from a trip with his office to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, Tennessee. He works for VetData (seriously awesome place to work!), and I’ll talk more about the trip on this week’s H54F.

If you follow me on Instagram @brightonabudget, then you know I did some outlet shopping while I was in Tennessee.  Confession time: what I posted was Round 1.  We did Round 2 later that evening but I didn’t have a chance to post pictures of my haul.

Here’s a look at the spoils of Round 1.  Part 2 of this post will be coming to you tomorrow, and features some guy and baby clothes (and maybe shoes).  Part 2 will also give some of my general tricks and tips for outlet shopping, to help you make sure you’re getting the best deals!

J. Crew Factory
Button-up: J. Crew Factory, $12.74*
*J. Crew Factory had everything 50% off, plus an extra 15% off with student ID. 
 J. Crew Factory + Coach Factory
T-shirt: J. Crew Factory, $16.79
Earrings: J. Crew Factory, $9.56;
Keychain: Coach Factory, $13.

Purse Haul
Fossil Outlet + Coach Factory
Clockwise from L to R: 
Fossil Outlet, $59.99*
Fossil Outlet, $10.50
Fossil Outlet, $13.17 
Coach Factory, $49.99.
*Fossil Outlet has everything BOGO 50% off, including clearance!

Gap Outlet
Zebra sweater, zip back, $20.24*
Striped tee, $10.34
Sleeveless dress, $24.74
Baby tee for Kane, $5.84;
*Yellow reusable tote, $3.50. Buy reusable tote and save 10% all year, each time you bring the tote shopping at Gap Outlet! Great to carry wet/sandy towels, swimwear, and flip flops this summer!

Notes about purchases:  

I had to buy the orange button-up because my undergrad’s school colors are orange and black.  

I love pineapples.  They’re a sign of welcome and I’m glad to see them everywhere this year! 

The $13 Fossil bag was the best deal (shout to Sheila for clueing us in!)–you could actually get 2 of those bags for $20 using the BOGO 50% deal!!!  

Finally, I cannot wait to wear the dress from Gap Outlet–probably on our beach trip later this summer!

Part 2 will be up tomorrow!

Nice to meet you!
