Shopping Style Steals: Tanger Outlet

So if you’re like me, you have been spending the last two weeks working on final projects, papers, and studying for finals. I HATE FINALS WEEK! Ugh, it’s the most stressful time of the school semester but don’t worry, you’re almost done! Anyway, yesterday I needed a little study break and what did I choose to do? Shopping, of course!

Instead of going to the mall close to my school in Iowa City, I drove about 20 minutes to a town called Williamsburg, IA where there is a Tanger Outlet Center. If you have never been to an outlet center before, it’s basically a little plaza with discount outlets for brand name stores. While the plan was to get some Christmas shopping done for my family, I may or may not have bought a few items for myself. I can never say no to a good sale…sigh.

Shopping Style Steals: H&M

I went to Illinois this weekend and of course while I was there I had to do some shopping. A store that Iowa doesn’t have that I wish we did is H&M. They have clothes that look expensive at much lower costs.  My favorite trend right now is neutral fall attire paired with a neon colored sneaker or beanie. So while I shopped at H&M I managed to get a tailored black jacket with leather flaps on sale for $24.95 (originally $59.95) and a neon pink beanie for $5.95.
