LABOR DAY KICKOFF
2016 FabuLESS Fall Fashion
Chokers. Can’t get enough of them! From delicate ribbons and simple leather fabrics to more elaborate pieces for evening. Chokers are back in a big way.
Sparkle. It’s never too early to grab a little something sparkly for all the holiday parties and social functions ahead. The bonus of buying now? More sizes available and less stress ahead.
Velvet. Velvet is soft and smooth and is also a must for Fall and Winter. From shoes to bags, to dresses and pants. If you see velvet, grab it while you can!
Suits are back and this time you get to wear them with sneaks! Create a polished, cool girl look with matching pieces and a comfy but cute pair of tennies or flats.
|FabuLESS Suit Styles to choose from at J Crew Factory.|
Layer it on with longer layers. Grab a soft knit maxi cardigan that you can layer now or look for a long leather coat or open tunic that will be a top trend for winter. Longer and lean is the key.
|Maurices lightweight ribbed Duster|

Everybody Needs Recess When you need a breather, at Outlets at Traverse Mountain, we’ve got you covered. Our open-air architecture is the best place to find a bench, regroup, and to enjoy a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory ice cream or caramel apple, an Auntie Anne’s Pretzel, or a ZOGO Frozen Yogurt or Dole Pineapple Whip. Or grab a quick and delicious lunch at Johnny Rockets or Best of State winning Bona Vita Italian Bistro. Head to the Grand Lobby for luxury seating, complimentary phone charging, or to check out and play our Larger than Life games for free. And remember, recess isn’t just for the young – when you come in under budget at Outlets at Traverse Mountain you can head to Coach Factory or Michael Kors for Amazing Savings on your own little reward.

It's time for back-to-school shopping, one of my favorite times of the year! This year, like the past few years, we did all of our back-to-school clothes shopping at the Outlets at Traverse Mountain. The thing I love about the Outlets at Traverse Mountain is that there are so many stores all in one place with so many brands I love. I don't know about your kids but my kids are quite picky about what they wear. It may be because from the time they could respond to us, we have allowed them to choose what to wear. I remember as still babies, I would hold two shirts up in front of my kids and before they could talk, they would point to a shirt and I would put it on them. My daughter cared a lot more than my son but my son, a few years later, has gotten to the point as well, that if he doesn't choose the clothes from the store, more than likely he will never wear the clothes unless he picks them out to begin with. So it's just a rule that if I'm going shopping for clothes for the kids, they always come with me so they will wear the clothes that I buy. Every now and then it's a little overwhelming to me but most of the time, it is a great afternoon out shopping with the kids.

Last week we were in Utah for Justin's brother's wedding. One thing that fascinates me about Salt Lake/Utah Valley is the amount of shopping it offers! In Eugene, there are like two and a half malls and they don't have the greatest stores... One mall we love to stop by when we are in Utah are the outlets at Traverse Mountain.
One fun little tidbit about me is that I'm actually kind of a cheapskate. I hate paying full price for anything. If I'm shopping around, I am always on the lookout for a discount. We love hitting up Traverse Mountain for many reasons - they have great stores (my favorites are American Eagle and J. Crew, Justin loves Justin loves Vans and Nike), there are restaurants at and near the mall, and of course - the great sales and prices at all the stores!
With the beautiful setting and great stores, it's a wonderful stop whether you're already living in the area or if you're visiting town! I stopped by American Eagle and got myself a pair of jeggings and this cute constellation tee. They had so many cute items - from jewelry to tops to dresses! I also found a pair of sandals that I purchased at the regular American Eagle store for HALF OFF at the outlet!! I wish I would have been patient! ;)

If you're in the area, be sure to stop by The Outlets at Traverse Mountain and get your shop on!

I am officially in my 30s. It's a little strange to say that. My birthday was just last week, and I turned 31 which put me over the edge from just being 30 to really being in my 30s. One of my favorite parts of my birthday is that I get birthday money to buy some new outfits for myself. It is always so hard for me when people ask what I want for my birthday. My standard answer to give them is that I always love pretty things. I have always been a girlie girl and love jewelry, makeup, clothes etc, and if it is pretty, I will probably love it. Two of my favorite places to go to get jewelry, especially statement necklaces, is JCrew and Loft at the Outlets at Traverse Mountain. They have some of the prettiest necklaces I have ever seen, and they always have an assortment of colors to go with any outfit. (PS, while you are at Loft, you need to check out the sweet deals they have going on right now. It was buy 1 get two free with their camis! I was so excited!) If you are wanting more trendy jewelry, I love shopping at Maurice's or H&M. They always have a huge selection! My husband let me have the night off on Wednesday, and I decided that I wanted to go shopping at the outlets. It was so nice to leisurely walk to the different stores kid free, getting fresh air, a little bit of exercise, and as a bonus, I watched a beautiful sunset light up the sky. It was exactly the recharge I needed, and I got some seriously cute things as well. I got the cami and necklace from Loft and the jacket from Maurices. Thanks for letting me stop by and chat with you today! I hope you'll come stop by my blog where you can find lots of crafts, recipes, and tutorials, or you can come find me on these social media outlets. Talk to you again soon!
