Weekend Steals & Deals | Columbus Day

Woo-hoo it’s the weekend and I’m celebrating one of my best friends’ birthday from sunny Las Vegas!  It’s a small, all-girls trip we planned a few months ago to ring in her 40th.  We just got in yesterday, but we had a delicious dinner at Alize and then dancing at Ghost Bar.  I didn’t make it to Foundation Room, but I hear it was good times!  We’re about to head to the pool now!  I’m really looking forward to some good food the next couple days and possibly going to see the Michael Jackson show.  What do you like to do in Vegas?  Favorite restaurants?  Follow me on Insta for some trip pics! 😉 
Across the nation, retailers are celebrating Columbus Day with big sales.  Check the bottom of the post for the updates on sales at my favorite places to shop with discount codes.  Ann Taylor and Banana Republic have 40% off your entire purchase and J. Crew Factory has 50% off women and men’s styles, 40% off boys and girls.  I love that you can shop the outlet stores online now!
I know we’re getting into cooler temps, but this brand is great, you can’t beat this price/color options, and I like this kind of top for layering under a jacket.  Assures you don’t get too hot!

Yes, please! 

Love this color combo.

Zella Essential Jacket $52.80, $88 (also coral and blue)
I posted this jacket and the vest below last week, but they are my favorites, so I’m sharing them again.  
Old Navy Quilted Zip-Front Vest $34 plus 15% off  (also in white, army green and black)
My shirt arrived right away from Ann Taylor and I love it! I snagged it at $14.80 last week at 60% off, but I’d pay $22.19 for it too!  This will be in heavy rotation soon. 🙂
GAP has awesome work pants on sale right now and save 20% – 40%, depending on how many items you buy.  These pants are tried and true, come in regular, tall, petite and various colors.  I tend to trust other women’s review of clothing, so seeing nearly 2,000 positive reviews on a pair of pants must mean they are well-liked!
Nordstrom has lots of their boots and booties marked down too.
I bought these boot and loved them, unfortunately, because I’m so short (5’0), the knee hit right at my knee cap and bothered me so I had to return them.  If you’re taller than me, I’d definitely recommend them! 

Via Spiga Nino Sandal $134.98, $225
How sassy are these?!  Perfect for dresses, skirts, pants, jeans, leggings  . . . 
I couldn’t resist adding this 2-pack of girl rompers to the mix- saw them on Nordstrom’s home page and fell in love! Wish I knew someone who could use them right now! Francis Moon, Natalie??
