You guuuuyyyssss….I know I’m not going back to school but a gal livin’ for a bargain won’t pass up tax free weekend!

Today I am sharing 4 things you need to know about Tax Free Weekend to save even more money back to school shopping. Oh and read through today’s post to see how 50 of you can win a $25 gift card for FREE!

Outfit Details: Fila Top | Denim | Pink Tennis Shoes

I was thinking back to when I was in highschool a hundred years ago and laughed because I remember picking out my outfit for the first day of school like I was getting ready for fashion week. I would pick out my outfits, shoes, matching nail polish and then of course make sure my best friends were coordinating too, duh. And then I remember my second year of college and I was all “where are my leggings?” LOL This outfit is definitely a good reflection of how I would have dressed for college. Super casual. Still a bit trendy but super casual. I’m pretty sure Fila was my jam back then too. I’m happy to say it’s making its way back!

Okay you guys, who likes saving money?! I know I do! As you probably already know, it is Tax Free Weekend here in Texas so here are 4 tips to shopping smarter!

1- Know what is tax exempt and what is not – Most clothing, backpacks and school supplies under $100 are tax free this weekend. See the full list here.

2- Know when tax free weekend is – Each state differs. Tax Free Weekend in Texas this year is August 10-12th.

3- Know when to start shopping – The answer is now. Whether you are shopping for yourself or for your kids, try to go in a day before to try on sizes and make a list of everything you need (sizes included) so that you can be sure to snag all the things without waiting in line for a dressing room. Even ask if the sales associate can put your items on hold for the next day. If not, at least you will know exactly what you need to grab and just need to pay or them. Tax Free Weekend is cray so this is the way to go if you still want to take advantage of the sales.

4- How to save even more money? – This is a 2 part answer. The first thing you need to do is visit this link to get your coupons that will get you an additional 25% off your purchases! Remember some stores will even apply this to clearance items!!

old-navy-graphic-tees

Another way to save even more money is knowing retailers are competing for your business so it doesn’t hurt to ask for a price match if you see the item at another retailer for a lower price.

And your bonus gift for today?? The first 50 people to text in to Tanger Outlets will get a $25 gift card. Visit my Facebook here to get the code.

Happy shopping friends and let me know if you have any questions!

Oh and also, if you caught my Instagram stories this week you saw that I was at Tanger Outlet’s Mommy and Me event! It was soooo much fun. Baby Weaver did not want to get out of the indoor sandbox. Yes, you heard that right, INDOOR SANDBOX! It was all indoors which is a blessing in this Texas heat! It had bounce houses, craft stations and the sandboxes. And it was inside. Did I already say that? lol. Anyway, if you missed this week’s they will have another one on September 4th. If you mention my name at check in you are going to get a really nice gift!! I can’t tell you what it is but I can tell you I kind of want it for myself lol. I’ll be sure to post a reminder for you mama’s a week before the event!

Dressed Up With Tanger Outlets

Happy Monday beauties!

If you caught my Instagram stories you saw that I found some great looks at Tanger Outlet in Texas City, Texas this weekend! I found baby Weaver some really cute items plus mama snagged some stuff for herself too 🙂 Today I am sharing 2 outfits that would be equally perfect for work or date night!

Oh and also sharing where to get your additional 25% off coupons below!

Outfit One: Ann Taylor Factory Store

Shop the jumpsuit here (wearing a 4) and floral blazer (wearing a small) here.

How cute are both of these outfits? So cute right?!

Did you know that Tanger Outlets offered coupons for additional savings?! I had no idea! I thought because it was an outlet and the prices are already marked down that they didn’t do coupons. I was so excited to find out they did! You can snag yours here!

I linked my outfits to the Ann Taylor Factory and the Loft Outlet websites in case you wanted to shop them online but remember you won’t be able to use you Tanger coupons there so if you wanted to take advantage of allll the savings be sure to visit your nearest outlet!

Tanger Outlets was also so generous to give me a code for you to text in to get a $25 gift card! This giveaway begins on Thursday, August 9th. So be sure to come back to the blog on Thursday morning to get the code so that you can use yours to shop this tax free weekend, August 10th-12th.

A gift card, coupons and tax free! Who could pass up that deal? Not me!

Let me know if there is anything you guys are looking for. Items your little ones, outfits for work or back to school! I’d love to help you out!

More Love, Less Shade – How To Stay Inspired In A Competitive Enviroment

This is a topic that has been super heavy on my heart lately. I’ve been going back and forth on whether to share it or not but then one of my favorite influencers, Courtney from Color Me Courtney said something really great on her instastories the other day, “You’ll Never Shine Throwing Shade”. It really inspired me to write this because more than likely you guys feel this way too!

I’m not sure how many bloggers you guys personally follow. Maybe I should survey you all to get your feedback but since I am in the influencer realm, naturally I follow dozens and dozens of fellow bloggers. Fortunately, I have become really close friends with so many of them. Think of them like your coworkers that you meet in the workplace and then end up being life long friends with. It’s exactly like that. These are the girls you will see me share and you will see me hanging out with. To people on the outside it may seem that the community is all rainbows and sunshine. I wish it was but unfortunately just like the workplace there are those that are…well let’s just say people I wouldn’t want to associate myself with in the workplace. You feel me?

Being in the industry I’ve seen shade thrown left and right but the last few weeks I have seen it more than ever and personally it’s over the most petty of things.

I have seen too many bloggers throwing shade about how other bloggers are promoting certain things. Rule #1 You can’t be all “women supporting women” and at the same time be talking s#$@ about women doing their thing. That is shade, you guys. The shadiest of all shade. I am a super positive person but I can’t help but listen to these shade throwers thinking “are you jealous?”, “why are you even spending time talking ill about someone else when you should be worrying about your own business?”.

It’s okay to disagree with what someone else is doing and it’s okay to not want to do it yourself but leave it at that. Do you and let her do her. No reason to talk negatively about someone. Stay focused on growing your own brand.

I was following this influencer for the longest time and so many times I’ve heard her complaining about other influencers. At first I would just swipe through her stories thinking she was having a bad day (everyone is allowed bad days!) but then I started to realize the complaining was so constant but the icing on the cake was when I realized she was the co founder of a reasonably large influencer community. Like hold up! Are you empowering women or bringing them down?

I don’t want to get too heated on this platform where I try to stay positive 🙂 lol so I’ll leave you with a few things you can keep in mind. Good for those in the influencer world, good for those running a business and just as good for those trying to live a positive life.

Throwing Shade Won’t Make You Shine– spending time and energy speaking negatively about someone else is simply a waste of time. That time could be used productively building your brand.

There is room for everyone– the amazing thing about blogs and businesses are the individuals behind them. So essentially if someone is selling the “same” item, it is truly the person(s) behind the business that makes them different and you choose who you support. I can’t help but feel like the negativity from some people comes from a place of feeling competition. The amazing thing about you is that you are you and no one else is exactly like you. You can choose to be competitive or you can choose to be collaborative. You may get to the top either way but the collaborative route is just way more fun and you’ll have an amazing community to celebrate with in the end!

The number of followers doesn’t define you but the people you follow kind of does– Think about it. It’s like your group of friends. People you associate yourself with starts to define the way you view yourself. Choose a supportive group of women who uplift you not crush down your wildest dreams. Anything is possible when you put your mind to it, don’t let anyone make you feel otherwise.

Remember why you started your blog or your business and stay focused– You didn’t start it to get caught up in the drama. You started it for so many other reasons whether it be to inspire working Mom’s, spreading your personal story or simply because you wanted to bring in additional income for your family. You will not achieve any of those things as quickly as you want to if you get sucked into drama.

Why did I share this? I was beginning to get irritated and uninspired because all of this negativity that was floating around the social media world. As a influencer, you can’t log off. Social media is part of your business. If you were starting to feel the same way I just wanted to pop on to remind you that we have a choice not to fall into that negativity.

Choose your tribe wisely. People who support you. People who motivate you. People who inspire you.

How To Dress Up A T-Shirt For The Office

Happy Thursday friends!

Today I am styling this super comfortable t-shirt for the office. This tee is actually part of the Nordstrom sale and I bought 3 colors because they are so good and only $11!

simple-chic-looks-for-the-office nordstrom-sale-wear-to-work how-style-a-tshirt-for-the-office business-casual-outfits black-and-white-stripe-tee affordable-outfits-for-the-office studded-valentino-dupes

Outfit Details: Tee: Nordstrom and similar here | Pants: Nordstrom | Heels: Amazon | Bag: so old! so linking a similar one here | Sunglasses: Karen Walker

So I wish I was dressed up and had makeup on today but instead I am still in my pj’s working from home because I am so not feeling well! Rachel, if you are reading this I blame Justin. 🙂

Tomorrow the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens up to the public (non cardholders) so all my office gal friends make sure you snag this comfy tee and flattering ankle pants! Like I mentioned, I snagged this tee in 3 colors and actually these pants in 3 colors as well. In addition to the black ones I grabbed the navy pinstripe style and the plaid ones! Both the tee and pants run true to size. I am wearing a small in the tee and size 4 in the pants for reference.

If you guys are anything like me, sometimes you just wanna throw on a tee and be done with your outfit but since #nopantsmonday isn’t a thing at the office here are 3 tips to styling your favorite t-shirts to the office.

1- Make sure your choice of bottoms are tailored– I opted for the easy route which were these tailored ankle pants but tucking your t-shirt into your favorite pencil skirt would achieve an equally chic and effortless look.

2- Tuck Your Shirt In – Duh. We can get away with not tucking our blouses in but the secret to making your casual weekend tee look not so casual at the office is making sure it’s neatly tucked in.

3- Throw On A Blazer – basically my solution for everything 🙂 But seriously a blazer will dress up any look!  A few weeks ago I couldn’t find a clean white cami to wear so I grabbed a white gym tank I had and threw a blazer over it. Voila!

So… I’m not sure if you noticed but the blog is undergoing some changes/rebranding. 🙂 I couldn’t be more excited about it as I’ve thinking about moving to RoselynWeaver.com for some time now! Stay tuned for some fun things coming our way. Yes, that means YOU too! I’ll be sharing some exclusive content and gifts here for you guys! I love and appreciate you all so much and I don’t think I tell you that enough!

Everything You Need To Know About The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Well almost…Nordstrom Anniversary sale is literally right around the corner and would we even be friends if we didn’t talk about it and prepare for it together?!

Nordstrom-Anniversary-Sale-2018-Picks-and-Tips

 

First things first, WHAT”S THE BIG DEAL ABOUT THE ANNIVERSARY SALE?

Yes, my shopaholic self (yes, I said it!) talks about sales all the time but what makes the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale the mothership of all sales is that unlike regular sales where they are marking down “old” product, the Nordy’s Anniversary Sale gives us major markdowns on BRAND NEW products guys! And when I say major markdowns I’m talking about upwards of 70% off on brands like Vince Camuto, Tory Burch, Rebecca Minkoff, Adidas, Nike, Free People, Topshop and so many more! I mean yes it might seem crazy purchasing pre Fall and Winter items in the middle of summer, but if you are wanting a new pair of boots or know that your going to need a new coat and some denim this Fall, you want to take advantage of the anniversary sale.

WHEN DOES THE SALE START?

  • July 11th- Level 4 card members get to pre-shop the sale (in stores only)
  • July 12th- early access starts
  • July 20th- sale opens to the public
  • August 5th- sale ends and all items go back up to full price on August 6th

HOW TO SHOP SMARTER:

I don’t want you to spend all of that hard earned money on things you won’t wear so here are some tips on shopping the anniversary sale:

  • Nordstrom Rewards Membership– If you want early access to shop the sale, you need to have a Nordstrom credit or debit card. If signing up for another credit card doesn’t sound appealing to you, don’t worry! I feel you! You can get the Nordstrom debit card to gain early early access. This card is linked to your checking account and still gives you the early access perks the Nordstrom credit card gets you!
  • Scan Your Wardrobe & Make A Shopping List– The best way to keep yourself from buyers remorse is to know what items you need in your closet. It’s easy to get caught up in a sale so taking note of what you actually need is the best thing to do. You’ll actually walk out of the store with purchases you feel good about rather than buying 4 purses when you actually needed a leather jacket, boots or new denim.

ITEMS TO WATCH FOR:

Items to watch for is different for everyone, but I would recommend taking advantage of the great basic items like denim, shoes, coats, etc. that you know you will need for Fall and get a lot of wear out of them.  Also, beauty items. These brands are very rarely on sale so snag them up at a discounted price when you can!

As you all know I just finished up my No Shop June challenge so I spent a lot of time scanning my closet and making a list of things I really needed. Here are the top 5 categories I will be shopping during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale:

1- Work Wear

2- Activewear

3- Shoes

4- Denim

5- Baby’s Clothes (because duh!)

 You can check out the rest of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog here.

We will actually be out of town the first day of early access (so sad!) but I will be adding my first round of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks here so be sure to check back in! Once those orders start arriving I’ll be adding and updating my favorite sale finds here on the blog and Instagram @style_lynn.

Also, be sure to check out Monday’s post here for a chance to win a Nordstrom gift card!

As always, thank you all so much for shopping my links and supporting this little blog of mine! I appreciate you!! Let me know if you guys have any questions!

Floral Print Pant Suit + $600 Nordstrom Giveaway

Happy Monday! I know it’s Monday but it’s a bit of a short week so you gotta be happy about that! Plus some blogger gals and I are partnering up to give one lucky winner a $600 Nordstrom gift card!

Giveaway entry and details are at the end of the post!

work-wear-outfit-inspirationwomen-pant-suit-for-summeraffordable-work-wearoutfits-for-workfeminine-pant-suitfloral-blazer-and-pant-setaffordable-outfits-for-officeoffice-fashion

Outfit Details: Blazer: Zara (sold out but exact dupe can be found here) | Pants: Zara | Cami: Express (the one I wear all the time) | Heels: DSW | Sunglasses: Quay Australia | Handbag: Nordstrom (similar)

Ummmm, can you talk about this fabulous suit?! I know it’s super extra but OMG I can’t get enough of it. It’s so cute paired together but I also wore the pants with  basic white cami and if you recall I paired the blazer with some denim shorts in my “How To Wear A Blazer In The Summer” post here.

I am so sorry that it took me so long to share the set here because the pants are now only available in one size and the blazer is completely sold out at Zara but still 3 pieces of good news for you! 1) I found the exact blazer here for the fraction of the price. 2) Zara is having a major sale on summer stuff 3) I also found a bunch of other affordable matching top and pant sets that will totally make you feel like a #girlboss.

P.S. If you are going to wear the yellow set to the office, it would be super cute with a button down white blouse underneath. Just FYI. Don’t be strutting into the office with that crop top saying Roselyn sent you, haha!

Wishing you all an amazing week!
