Tax Free Shopping

Sunday, August 19, 2012

Hello Lovelies!

I am so excited to see so many new followers, I can't wait to write a "New Followers" post about all of you! Thanks for all of your support, and I look forward to making this blog a place where we can exchange ideas, support each other, and hopefully find some happiness :)

Ok back to business.
If you don't have a Tax Free weekend in your state, you need to move... J/K

Most states participate in tax free weekend where you don't have to pay taxes on most clothing items, or back to school necessities. One of the perks of being a teacher is that I get to go back to school shopping (My husband actually lets me)!

Y'all have read about my love for the Allen Outlets considering they have my new favorite retailer J CREW, so I was definitely there the minute they opened on Friday. I got 3 items I really liked...

This super cute sweater fits great, and it will be a great go-to in the fall since my classroom gets so cold!

This is just a basic long sleeve for lounging around the house, or school with a cute necklace or scarf

My favorite of all, even though I won't be wearing this to school... Excuse the wrinkles, haven't steamed yet

So these three items, with no taxes and my %15 teacher discount came up to a total of 
$59!!! Now that's a bargain!

We headed to Nike afterwards where I found this fun throwback, 

Obviously the olympics are over, but it looks really cute on, and I love the blue collar, 

And of course there's nothing wrong with a little patriotism any time, go USA!

I would have done more shopping this weekend, but it just got a little busy.
I am surprisingly satisfied with these few items :)
Plus, I'm saving for a bbbbbbiiiigggg purchase soon that I can't wait to tell y'all about!

Did you do any tax free shopping this weekend?
