Last week was all about the sparkle and shine!

This week, I’m taking on a new holiday feel – pastels. They’ve slipped into our winter wardrobes year after year, more so with the adoption of winter whites than dusty blue, but 2016 is the year to embrace these light hearted hues and wear them with joy.

The easiest way to work pastels into your winter wardrobe is with accessories. If you’re not ready to take on a head-to-toe look, start with a handbag, shoe or jewels. Here are a few of my favorite finds!

First up is this baby pink handbag. Trust me, you can do it. Just keep the rest of the look simple. I’m a black/brown bag girl myself, but the second I saw this beauty on with my creme sweater and khaki skirt, it was truly a sight to see. Pairing pastels with neutrals is very sophisticated.


Find a similar bag at Saks OFF 5th.

If you’re married to your handbag for the season, you can always bring lighter colors into your jewels. How stunning would this powder blue necklace be over a black sweater or turtleneck? It’s the perfect backdrop and gives this beauty all it’s glory.


J.Crew Factory has a ton of great pastel jewels right now. It’s impossible to choose just one!

If you’re looking for a fun winter addition, try a pair of pastel sunnies. If planning a ski trip, rock these with your all white look for the slopes. So chic!


Find other great pastel sunglasses available at Saks OFF 5th.

So, here’s where I cheat a little. Instead of advising you invest in a pastel shoe, I’m going to push the neutral flat because it once again proves to be the most versatile shoe of all time. Dress it up with a cocktail dress, down with skinny jeans or with cigarette pants for the office. It will make styling your other pastel accessories easier, I promise. One less thing to think about!


My favs are from J. Crew Factory.

If you have as big of a crush on these fancy hues as I do this season, it’s time to shop! Be the trend-setter that you’ve always wanted to be and let’s change the perception of holiday attire.

First stop, Tanger! I guarantee you’ll have a frustration-free shopping trip, finding everything on your list from your favorite brands in one stop. Easy peasy!

Have fun this holiday season and happy shopping!

The holidays are all about sparkle and shine. Luckily, this season’s “Disco Glam” trend will keep us all on point. Think studs, jewels, etc. – Anything that will catch the light. 🙂

I’ve scoured Tanger for all of my favorite Disco Glam pieces and am excited to share them with you, with hopes that you’ll be able to integrate them into your outfits this holiday season.

It’s time to steal the show, ladies!

Pick No. 1

The “IT” dress. Take on the holidays in this sequin mini dress from J.Crew Factory. The structure is simple but the sequins scream “Hello, I’m here!” Dress it up for your next holiday soiree by adding a nice black blazer and simple black heels.

Champagne Sequin Dress | J.Crew Factory | $128

Pick No. 2

The second necessity of the season, accessories fit for the disco. Metallic accessories are the perfect compliment to any solid look you might piece together. Solid red, black, navy… All of them could use a little pizazz with this silver metallic clutch, sparkly teardrop earrings or a simple necklace. Toss on a metallic shoe as well and you’ll be glistening from head to toe.

Silver Textured Wristlet | Express Factory Outlet | $18.95
Silver Teardrop Earrings | J.Crew Factory | $24.50
Sparkly Tassel Necklace | Banana Republic Factory Store

TangerTip: Spend $100 or more at Banana Republic Factory Store through 12/31 and use THIS COUPON for 15% OFF your entire purchase.

Pick No. 3

Pick number three are these incredible, sequin leggings from Express Factory Outlet. Talk about making a statement. Because these pants can obviously take all of the attention, let them. Pair with a simple black blouse and strappy black heels and you’re ready to take on the town this holiday season.

Metallic Silver Sequin Legging | Express Factory Outlet | $69.95

Are you in the spirit yet? If so, head to Tanger to pick up all of these finds and more from some of the best designer stores. It’s such a luxury to have them all in one place, at one stop.

I’m telling you, this holiday season is all about making a statement.

Happy Shopping!

It’s here, it’s here! It’s the week of Thanksgiving and let me tell, you I can smell it already!

Second to the food, my look on Thanksgiving is the most important aspect of the day. Why? Because this critical choice can make or break your comfort level throughout the day. Not only do you want to look super stylish to impress the family you only see a few times a year, but you want to be able to make it back for thirds without letting your too tight pants or crop top stop you.

Here are a few ideas that will make striking fashion statements, but allow you to keep your eye on the casserole (I mean prize)!

The “Room for Leftovers” Sweater

Think oversized and slouchy. Keep it neutral, so that you don’t look like a scoop of sweet potatoes. Trust me, you want to take advantage of this comfy trend before it’s gone. Pair your oversized sweater with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and a trendy flat and you’re golden!

The “Sweet as Pie” Blouse


Photo: The Closet Crush

Note that this option is also loose (your welcome)! There’s nothing sweeter than pumpkin pie on thanksgiving, so why not take a note from the dessert table and tie in the season’s richest color. Let the color do all the talking here and pair with a casual jean and heels, if you dare.

The “Sweater Weather” Dress

It’s finally sweater weather, so do your part and wear one! They’re the best invention since boxed stuffing and certainly appropriate for a family gathering. A dress says “Oh hey, I’m here to have a great time” and the cozy knit screams, “But I’m totally down for a nap after dinner.” If you get a second wind and want to meet up with your friends afterwards, toss on a pair of over-the-knee boots and ta da, versatile perfection!

The “Thankful for Elastic” Palazzo Pants


Photo: Louboutins & Love

They’re a dream come true! We’ve all secretly unbuttoned the top button a time or two, so why not avoid that discomfort altogether and go with an elastic waistband. Choose a wide leg pant for a sophisticated look or even a jogger if your fam is super casual.  I’m also the girl that puts up the Christmas tree before Thanksgiving, so holiday red is 100% recommended!

The “Harvest Hues” Outfit


Photo: Penny Pincher Fashion

Because who doesn’t get inspired by the changing of the leaves. I take my fashion cues from mother nature this time of year and she never disappoints. Bring a little autumn cheer to the Thanksgiving table with an outfit full of warm fall colors and soft textures. Think suede and a flouncy blouse (yep, still leaving room).

Comment below and let me know which look you’re leaning towards. Cozy sweater or fall colors? Gosh, you can even mix the two! I love dressing for special occasions, but am all about practicality.

If you’re heading out to Tanger to get in a little post Thanksgiving shopping, be sure and check your center hours beforehand. Some centers are opening 6PM Thanksgiving evening and staying open through the night. Now that’s a good way to burn off those calories!

The weekend also launches a new set of holiday hours, which should ease all of your time crunch worries.

Have fun and eat up everyone!

If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a thousand times – Tanger Outlets has the world’s greatest shopping experience and luckily, I’m not the only one that thinks so. Fashionista’s from across the globe agree. And here’s why!

Tanger Outlets teamed up with TIME Inc. last week to host its second blogger event of the year. This one, all geared around Tanger’s goal to get shoppers to #StyleYourLife at Tanger. Tanger and TIME invited 25 top NY bloggers and their friends to spend the day in Deer Park, NY shopping their favorite brand name stores for the latest and greatest trends. It was the ultimate pre-holiday shopping event!

First Stop… TIME Headquarters

Our favorite bloggers met at TIME, where they were prepped for the day ahead. It wouldn’t be the full experience if they weren’t armed with their #StyleYourLife tote and all of their Tanger goodies, including of course a store directory for each group to scout out their day and a coupon book to ensure they’re getting the best deals.

This also allowed time for all of the street style stars to mingle and kick off their day via social media. It was so fun to follow!

Next Stop… Party Bus

With their friends on their arm and and Snapchat in hand, the  girls loaded onto a bus that would take them to Tanger. The mood was set with fun music like Paolo Nutnini’s “New Shoes” and Donna Summer’s “She Works Hard for the Money.” Pretty witty huh! 🙂 They also had a few minutes to catch up on all their social happenings before hitting the stores.

Final Destination… Tanger Outlets

Once they arrived at Tanger, each blogger was given a $250 gift card to shop ‘til they dropped. They worked together to scour the center for the best looks and even shared a few shopping tips along the way, all while documenting their experience via social media of course (what’s a fashionista without her following)!

The girls were challenged to pull the best looks they could find, with a chance to win a $2,500 shopping spree. Let’s just say they were so good, there were 5 winners! Ahh what I would give!

Use the hashtag #StyleYourLife all season long to show off your fashionable finds and who knows, you could be the next blogger to grace Tanger (or win your own shopping spree).

Enjoy your holiday shopping everyone!

I have the urge to splurge on all things feminine this fall. Nothing combines my inner girly-girl and trendsetter quite like lace. Romantic, timeless and versatile – Lace is my go-to material as I head into the holiday season.

No need to go head-to-toe, throw on a lace pump or blouse and you’ve gifted your outfit just the right amount of attitude. Add a little bling with a chunky bracelet or teardrop earrings and you’re ready to party.

I’ve rounded up 5 ways to wear this dainty trend in good taste.

No. 1: Work

Because lace has a bit of a nighttime bias, I only incorporate details into office attire. I love this look with simple slacks and a statement heel. Think classic elegance.


No. 2: Cocktail Party

Cocktail parties call for over the top lace dresses. Keep the look classic with a pump and subtle jewelry or go full fashionista with strappy statement heels and complimentary bling.

No. 3: Night Out

This is when the time calls for that lace LBD!  Have fun with accessories and a dainty heel. Sheer and sassy for the win!


No. 4: Date

Think fun and flirty. Colored lace is great for a night out with your boo. Make sure it’s the main event and pair it with understated extras. It’ll be love at first sight!

No. 5: Weekend

There’s no cooler combo than lace and denim. Go for a cute lace top, skinny jeans and a pointy flat. Excuse me, brunch is calling!

If you’re shooting for feminine and dainty, let us make this very easy for you: lace. If the goal is a little flirty and alluring, yep you guessed it: still lace. This is one trend with many different looks.

Because there are so many great lace pieces to stock up on this year, I have to find a few extra ways to save. Luckily, now through November 13, you can shop with your 20% OFF TangerStyle Holiday Shopping Pass. It’s only available for a limited time, so hurry in and shop till you drop.

From season to season, the pleated skirt takes the win. Cool for spring and perfectly polished for fall/winter, it’s a stunner that can easily get you through the year looking fab.

Pleats come in a variety of forms, but the midi skirt is by far my favorite. It has a super high fashion feel to it and can be styled so many different ways – dressed up, dressed down, classic, funky, you name it!


For those looking to get more wear out of this beautiful wardrobe staple, here are 10 different ways to wear your pleated mini skirt.

  1. CASUAL CHIC – Add a plain tee, a statement necklace and a hip handbag.
  1. PREPPY – Wear it with a tucked in sweater and a thin belt.
  1. COOL CHICK – Toss on a graphic tee, a cropped leather jacket and ankle booties.
  1. FOR VACATION – Add a loose tank and strappy flats.
  1. PROFESSIONAL – Pull out the go-to blazer  and pumps.
  1. LAYERED – Keep your legs covered with a pair of tights, a collared shirt and Oxford shoes.
  1. COZY – Wear with a turtleneck (tucked in) or a short cardigan.
  1. DAYTIME – Grab that versatile chambray shirt (tucked or untucked) and simple flats.
  1. FLIRTY – Toss on a plain tee, the denim vest from spring and fun jewelry.
  1. BOHO – Keep it simple with a tank top, a floppy hat and fab flats.

If you don’t already have one of the “skirts of the season” I highly recommend picking one up a.s.a.p.! They’re flying off the shelves at Tanger.

Happy Shopping!

Halloween is my favorite adult holiday of the year (let’s be real, we have all the fun)! With that said, I’m not a big fan of the “bagged lunch” costumes. Instead, I use it as an opportunity to put my creative juices to the test to see what I can make from pieces I can actually repurpose later on.

Here are a few ideas on ways to make some of your favorite childhood characters come to life with items straight from Tanger (hmm I mean your closet)! 🙂



Pinocchio, a puppet created by a wood-carver in a small Italian village, might have been prone to telling lies and fabricating stories for various reasons but he sure did have a sense of fashion. He has been reimagined through the minds of creative kids since the 1800s, but his classic sense of style has remained the same.

Recreate this look with a pair of high-waisted shorts or trousers, a button down blouse with Pinocchio’s notable bowed collar and a pair of leather or plush loafers or mary janes. If you’re going for the full effect, toss on a pair of suspenders and a trendy fedora. You’re sure to come to life in this look!

Snow White


Once upon a time there lived a lovely princess with fair skin and blue eyes. She was so fair that she was named Snow White. She was sweet, nurturing and had the kindest of hearts.

Take a more literal approach to Snow White’s style with a beautiful white dress and a candy apple clutch. You’re sure to catch the attention of prince charming!

Puss in Boots


Was it his trickery and deceit that gained him power, wealth and the hand of a princess or was it his impeccable taste? Puss in Boots was referred to as “The Booted Cat” in the original Italian tale which makes his beautiful (what I would assume were Italian leather) boots that much more admirable.

Gain the confidence of this little man with show-stopping boots of your own (riding or heeled), a tamed faux fur vest and the sassiest of fedoras that you can find.



What little girl doesn’t dream of her own Cinderella story? Life can be rough at times, but all is made well with a beautiful ball gown and glass slippers.

Recreate an every-day Cinderella look with a pair of powder blue ankle pants, a sophisticated and feminine white blouse and a magical metallic slipper, I mean pump! And don’t worry, this look can carry you long past midnight.

Little Red Riding Hood


The name of this beloved tale says it all – It was all about the fashionable cape! The plush red cape kept the little girl warm as she walked through the woods to deliver food to her sickly grandmother. Not only did she rock it in style, the tricky wolf did too – It’s that versatile and flattering to all.

Pair your beautiful red cape or poncho with comfortable jeans and brown booties for your own trek through the weekend.

Are you inspired to create your own DIY Halloween look? Take a little trip to your childhood and pick up a few pieces that bring back the magic from your beloved fairytale.

If you have to head out to pick up a few details to top off your look, be sure to download your PINK card first for an additional 25% OFF savings. Shop ‘til you drop and use your coupon once per day per (participating) store until October 31st.

Happy Halloween Everyone!

The air is crisp and the leaves have already begun to change. We’re only a few weeks into fall and I already feel as though I’ve run out of options. Why does this seem to happen season after season?! Last year’s digs are cute, but they just don’t seem to make the cut when filing through my closet each morning.

I was out enjoying all that fall has to offer last weekend and couldn’t help but take a little inspiration from the stunning colors around me. Mother Nature sure has the upper hand when it comes to the ability to create art as life.

I could go on and on about my amazement; but, instead thought you might be interested to see what these colors of the wind inspired me to purchase this weekend. I’m definitely back on my fall game, no worries!



Forever21 | Lace-Up Swing Dress | $14.90

First up is this burnt orange dress from Forever21 for only $14.90, inspired by the red-ish, orange-like hue that you see way up in the mountains. I didn’t originally have a dress on my list, but hey – who sticks to a list anymore!

I honestly did need a few long sleeve dress options that would pair well with my fall boots. I can toss on neutral leggings and a brown parka later on this year and really play up the color!



H&M | Long-sleeved Jersey Top | $17.99

This second color is what my fall dreams are made of. We don’t see these deep burgundy leaves much in the states, but the moment I do I’ll be sure and stop time so you all can experience it too!

Call it ruby, cranberry, whatever you like – I will have an entire section of my closet dedicated to this color by the end of Autumn, starting with this must-have long sleeve jersey top from H&M. It was only $17.99 and has quickly become a staple. The material is so cozy! You must feel it for yourself!



H&M | Corduroy Pants | $19.99

Next up, a more tradition fall color – brown or neutral tones. These bring me back to the days of jumping in piles of leaves in the front yard. Cool air, crisp ground, laughing neighbors! My adult interpretation of this is a pair of camel corduroy pants.

If you don’t already own corduroy, this is the place to start! They’ve been pretty hot for a few years now. You can find these at H&M for $19.99. For an even more seasonal look, pair them with a neutral sweater and you’ll be a walking billboard for fall.



J.Crew Factory | Tall Pencil Skirt | $44.50

And last, but not least – every season needs a bright pop of color. This year’s go-to for me is marigold or mustard. It’s bright enough to make you feel alive at the office, but warm enough to be considered a fall color. Think of the yellow leaves that you used to be on the look out for at recess. They were the rare, special ones!

This tall, classic pencil skirt is more versatile than you think. Wear it with neutral office staples or darker, warmer tones to really take advantage of the seasonal palette. Find this skirt at J.Crew Factory for only $44.50.

Are you inspired to get outside? Keep an eye out for the things around you that inspire new fashions. Color is everywhere and Mother Nature is truly the queen of pairings. She’ll do all the work for you, you just have to make the move and get to Tanger to bring her vision to life.

Tanger Tip: Shop now until October 31st with your Tanger PINK card and receive 25% OFF a single item per store (all month long). If you don’t already have your savings card, you can download it here for $5 or pick it up at Shopper Services once you get to the center.

Happy shopping you guys!

For some reason, this time of year always comes with dreams of fancy getaways and worldly travels. Perhaps I’m chasing the warm weather or just ready for another escape from adulting.

While jet-setting is always on my mind, I feel less of an urge this year because of the worldly fashions I’ve been studying for fall/winter 2016-’17. Designers always draw inspiration from around the globe, but this year’s influences seem to be stronger than ever, specifically those from the Tibet region of China, just on the northern side of the Himalayas.

Tibet is rich in culture and color, making it perfect for the autumn season. The runways were graced with ethnic embellishments, textured weaves and rich color, paired with cocoon coats and tunic dresses. The bright loose fitting designs had to make an appearance in my fall/winter wardrobe, so naturally I planned a trip to Tanger to find my ethnic attire.

Here are 3 worldly looks that nearly anyone could pull off!

Look No. 1


Suede Coat | $29.99


Felt Hat | $17.99


Black Heels| $29.99

This first look had me the second I saw this suede jacket. The texture is phenominal and the color, perfect for fall! To ensure the focus remains on the jacket, I paired it with a simple white button-down shirtdress.

Simple, go-to black heels and a statement necklace to dress it up a bit and of course, for a bit of flare, you can add a trendy black felt hat. This look screams well-traveled and can all be purchased at H&M head-to-toe.

Look No. 2


Romper | $24.99


Tassel Crossbody | $24.99


Arrow Necklace | $6.00      


Suede Heel | $20.00

This look is the perfect outfit for jet-setters. It’s super trendy, but also as practical as it gets. Let’s start with the bright, printed romper – The colors are so brilliant and full of life and the print is perfect for an overseas adventure.

Every well-traveled fashionista knows that a crossbody is essential when on the move. Add simple jewelry and a statement (comfortable) heel for the win. You can find this look at Charlotte Russe and H&M at Tanger for less.

Look No. 3



Pendant Necklace | $7.99


Crewneck Tee | $14.00


Skirt | $49.99    

This third look is my favorite! I’m all about a midi skirt. Add eyelets and a rich marigold and I’ve probably found my token fall staple. Get ready to see this again and again (no shame)! Not wanting to take away from the opulence of the skirt, I paired it with a simple black long-sleeved tee from Gap.

The token black heels make another appearance with an elegant gold pendant necklace. The only thing missing from this simple, chic look is an authentic tibetan clutch. A bold pop of color would be the cherry on top. For a similar look, shop H&M and Gap Factory Store.

So, who has the travel bug?! I have a trip planned to Ontario, Canada this year which is sure to be a good time! While, not too distant from the states, I hear the culture is amazing and the food even better. Lucky for me, there’s also a Tanger Outlets in Ottawa not far from where I’ll be. So, if all else fails… I can shop!

Let me know what your travel plans are for the year. Need help deciding what to buy/pack for your trip? Tweet me @tangeroutlets with #TangerFashionista.


The color pink is back! No longer associated with your childhood wardrobe, but now with chic new fashions and color combinations. It’s 100% time to reintroduce this feminine phenom to your wardrobe. It’s new and fresh. Pink was once labeled as precious or girlish but (largely due to its tie to the support of breast cancer research and awareness) has become one used to communicate strength and pride. The color pink is worn not only by fashion’s elite, but by our everyday heroes as a representation of the fight for life.

I advise you to never again hesitate to wear the color pink and especially not in the month of October. Wear it boldly! While I was once a skeptic, I’m now a believer and consider myself somewhat of a pro when it comes to pink pairings. Whether you’re just easing into pinks or consider them your go-to colors, I’ve provided different ways to wear it with “simpler” colors in your wardrobe. There are endless options, all which will add to the confidence your pink looks will evoke.


Pink + Silver

I adore the fashion-forward combination of a futuristic metallic with a feminine pink.


Pink + Yellow

Sherbet-hued pink and soft yellow make for a great candy-crush pairing.


Pink + Black

Bright pink and black is a classic combination and a stylish way to mix accessories.


Pink + Wine

Paired with deep reds, shades of pink can be ultra-sophisticated.


Pink + Brown

Muted pink and latte hues are delicious together.


Pink + Red

Bubble gum pink and candy apple red are a sweet duo.


Pink + Pink

I like pairing blush or petal pink with super tones for a trendy monochromatic look.


Pink + Gray

Gray and pink are a ladylike combination.


Pink + Green

Use a dark, earthy green to ground bright pink pieces.


Pink + Navy

Fashion-forward and classic, you can’t go wrong with this color combo.


Pink + Orange

Bold and beautiful. It will always make a statement.


Pink + Purple

Purple tones are surprisingly chic when paired with pink.

There you have it. If you have anything pink hanging in your closet, you’re destined to find a complimentary color to wear it with.
