I always have an itch to give my wardrobe a little update when a new season comes around, and the outlet is my favorite place where I know I can find all the latest styles while getting the most out of my budget! The Tanger Outlets recently opened up in Fort Worth at the end of last year and I’ve been meaning to make a trip out there to check out some of my favorite stores including LOFT Outlet, Ann Taylor Factory, Express Factory Outlet, and Kate Spade Outlet to name a few. I gave myself a $150 limit and 2 hours of shopping time, and am happy to now share with you all 3 new outfits I was able to find during my Tanger Outlet shopping trip!
And just a quick note, I’ve listed the style number information for everything that I picked up from the outlet and am featuring here. If you are curious whether your outlet has a particular item, you can call the store and reference the style number so that they can check whether it’s in stock! 😄
TANGER OUTLET SHOPPING – OUTFIT 1:
Top: Ann Taylor Outlet flutter sleeve blouse (style #24456081)
Bottom: Ann Taylor Outlet pleated skirt (style #24510684 )
Shoes: Schutz ‘Blasiana’ Bow Pumps
Earrings: Sugarfix by Baublebar Tassel Drops
Bag: old (almost identical dupe)
Ann Taylor Outlet had all their spring arrivals out and omg, it was all so good!! Pretty florals, ruffle details, and all the spring colors that made me so excited to update my wardrobe. I swooped up this pleated skirt the instant I noticed it as it’s versatile enough for casual weekend errands and weekday business casual. It’s fully lined with a hidden side zipper and constructed with the quality I’ve come to expect from Ann Taylor. I paired it with this ruffle sleeve blouse as I love the feminine variation on the simple white top and could always use more basics in my closet!
TANGER OUTLET SHOPPING – OUTFIT 2:
Ok, seriously how gorgeous is this dress? The darker color palette is perfect as we transition into warmer weather and the butterfly print adds just a hint of whimsy while still looking chic and modern. The wrap dress style is incredibly figure flattering and I love the subtle ruffle details at the shoulders and neckline.
TANGER OUTLET SHOPPING – OUTFIT 3:
Top: LOFT Outlet blouse (style #24331074)
Bottom: Express High-Waisted Sash Pant (mine is linen but love the poly fabric option available now)
Belt: Gucci Double G (80)
Shoes: Ann Taylor ‘Odette’ Suede Pumps (go down 1/2 size)
Bag: Amazon Ring Crossbody
Earrings: Kendra Scott ‘Alex’ in Slate
So of course the minute I saw there was a LOFT Outlet, I couldn’t get myself in the store fast enough! This top was the first to catch my eye and I swear I’ve seen the pretty print in regular LOFT stores. I love the silky lightweight material and while it’s a little hard to see, there are actually ruffles that come down the sleeves. ￼
TIPS FOR TANGER OUTLET SHOPPING
The best part about outlet shopping is hands-down THE DEALS! Almost every store that I went into had promotions on top of marked down prices and I was absolutely giddy seeing just how much I was able to purchase despite a limited budget.
For the super savvy shopper, there are a few extra tips that will help you save just a few more bucks!
2. Join the TangerClub. This is a member’s club and personally my favorite part of shopping at the Tanger Outlet. With this $10 membership, not only do you get member-exclusive perks and discounts, but you can submit your shopping receipts in return for rewards that convert into shopping dollars!! I mean, who doesn’t love getting paid to shop!
3. Download the app (iPhone, Android). Not only does it provide a store directory so you can make sure you hit all the stores you have on your list, but there are personalized coupons to help you save even more! If you’re a member of the TangerClub that I mentioned above, the app also allows you to easily take a picture of your receipts so that you can earn your rewards!
4. Like their Facebook page. Here they will share upcoming events (Tanger Ft. Worth has a super fun Engine Extravaganza event coming up on March 31 that I know my kids would love!) and well as have coupon deals for certain stores too (I should have taken advantage of this 25% off Auntie Anne’s pretzel deal the last time I was there!).
Be sure to stop by the Tanger Fort Worth Outlet and give your spring closet a major refresh! I know I’ll be going back to pick up some goodies from Bath & Body Works and to shop at the Banana Republic and H&M!
Thank you so much to Tanger Fort Worth Outlets for sponsoring this post!
