So, I have to admit something… Spring totally snuck up on me this year! After taking a nice inventory of my closet on Sunday, I realized it was time to find a few good spring pieces that would help get me in the mood. My closet was definitely lacking a little spring-time sparkle. I really do love the warmer weather AND all the savings that go along with stores bringing in new spring lines.
I found great neutral pieces that will help get me through the season, but the more exciting part of my shopping trip was this outfit that I found at Tanger. Easter also happens to be this weekend (again, where has the time gone) so I felt like I had a decent excuse to get fancy and pick up a new head-to-toe outfit. And as always, I have to brag about the money I saved. Never fails to amaze me!
I’ll start with this sundress… Uh can you blame me?! I swear, I’ll probably wear this thing 10 times before the season is over. I found it at J.Crew Factory for only $82.50. It was originally $138.00. That’s $55.50 saved! It’s neutral enough to be worn to numerous events – church, weddings, showers, etc. so I couldn’t let it go. Finding a great versatile dress is like winning the wardrobe lotto!
Tip: Next time you’re checking out at J.Crew Factory be sure and give them your email address and opt in for promotional emails. I promise they won’t spam your inbox and the extra savings are crazy good!
Then I made my way to Saks OFF 5th, which never fails me. I picked up these heels. They’re Nine West, but Saks had them marked down 49% from $79 to $39.99. The awesome thing about Saks OFF 5th is that you can find multiple brands under one roof. They also have their own Saks label which has some nice stuff too! I found these flip flops that are the Saks label. They were only $19.99! They’re perfect for tossing into your purse or keeping in your car for times when the heels start to hurt. I’ll probably end up wearing them with the J.Crew sundress at some point!

After I had the perfect shoes and dress, I convinced myself I needed a new purse to finish off my Easter look. 🙂 I mean, twist my arm. I just saved $55 on that dress! I was in Gap Factory and found this tan, sandy crossbody that not only goes with my new outfit, but 90% of the other spring pieces I got over the weekend and already have in my closet. It was only $15.99! Marked down from $24.99. My first thought was to put the money I saved towards a pedicure… yes, another thing that is urgent when you suddenly realize it’s spring and you’ll be sporting open-toed shoes in 3 days. Ahh!

TOTAL SAVINGS: $143.52!!
Needless to say, by the end of the day I had re-stocked for spring AND got a whole new Easter outfit for less than $200 AND saved close to $150. I’ll show off some of my other finds in the next few weeks, some were super trendy and some just basics, but all of it was pretty inexpensive and of course versatile.
Now I’ve got the spring fashion bug. Tag me in some of your new spring looks on social media using #TangerSaver. I want to see how this beautiful weather and fun spring events have inspired you.
Oh and enjoy a happy Easter weekend!
