Trust Me–These Pants Are Everything And On Sale Right Now

When you find something you’ve been searching for and it surpasses your expectations, you share the good news. Am I right? Y’all, I stumbled into an old fashion stomping ground, and I found the spring pants I’ve been looking for. If you’ve been looking for the perfect pair of pants to complete your head-to-toe neutral ensembles or your color-blocked fits, these pants are for you. They’re comfortable, figure-flattering, and available in several colors and prints. There’s more too. They’re on sale right now!

I purchased the pants in Bell Pepper Red, a beautiful orange hue that’ll surely hold down some of my upcoming color-blocked looks (see my most recent look here). Check my Instagram later today for a sneak peek of the pants.

Size Tip:
Use the online True Fit analysis on the retailer’s site (conveniently located near the dropdown size selector for the pants). It was on point for me. Size 6 fits me perfectly in these pants.

A Guide To Holiday Shopping At The St. Louis Premium Outlets

This post is sponsored by the St. Louis Premium Outlets.

Last Week, I spent the day wrapping up my holiday shopping at the St. Louis Premium Outlets. This is my go-to outlet destination in St. Louis because it has over 90 designer and name brand stores, including some of my favorites like Kate Spade New York, J.Crew Factory, Michael Kors, and Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th.

Since I know this mall like the back of my hand, I’m sharing some of my top tips for maximizing your visits. And, since I found so many right-on-trend treasures on my last trip, I’m also sharing some of the top holiday finds (and deals) there right now.

What I’m Wearing from St. Louis Premium Outlets:

Free People burnout velvet top via Saks Off 5th, $44.99 (retail $98)

Michael Kors paperbag waist pants, $56 (retail $140)

Stuart Weitzman booties via Saks Off 5th, $143.99 (retail $575)

Earrings via J.Crew Factory, $19.80 (retail $49.50)

Total savings: $597.72

Guide to Holiday Shopping at the St. Louis Premium Outlets:

1. Join the Vip Shopper Club for FREE. Before you even visit the St. Louis Premium Outlets, join the free VIP Shopper Club. It’s literally your passport for deeper savings. Members of the club receive the latest news of year-round deals at the center. For example, from December 7 to 14, members will get early access to the Ultimate Holiday Outlet Sale. There will be gift guides with exclusive deals from an extensive list of retailers that won’t become available to everyone else until the 14th. First dibs to deals? I’m here for that.

2. Plan your visits. The St. Louis Premium Outlets, especially this time of year, gets busy. Savvy shoppers know where to go after all. Make your trips hassle-free by outlining the stores you’d like to visit and noting their locations. There are maps available at the center or you can explore the 3D interactive map online.

3. Check for events. There are fun events at the St. Louis Premium Outlets throughout the year. I saw Demi Lovato there last year. I’ve also attended a Teen Vogue runway event there. I hear that Santa and Mrs. Claus will be making special appearances on December 8, 9, 15, 16, 22 and 23 from 1-3pm.

4. Grab those deals. The St. Louis Premium Outlets is one of my favorite places for finding designer deals. When I’m presented with a great shoppertunity, I grab it. For example, I’ve been wish-listing Stuart Weitzman footwear all year long. When I found a pair of Stuart Weitzman booties in my favorite color at Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th marked down from $575 to under $145, there was only one thing to do–Get ’em! So, I did.

I found my entire look at the St. Louis Premium Outlets and saved $600 by taking advantage of current deals there. Did I mention I saved $600? My earrings, part of larger set, are 60% off at J.Crew Factory (see more of my holiday finds from this store here). The fabulous paperbag waist pants are from Michael Kors and are 60% off. Just so you know, bags and accessories are 70% off at Michael Kors right now. My festive holiday top by Free People is clearance-priced (58% off) at Saks Off 5th.

Want to see even more fabulous holiday finds at the St. Louis Premium Outlets? I’m going to be re-sharing favorites in my Instagram Stories today.

This New App Helps Me Track All My Shipments

Thank you Shopify for sponsoring this post. Track your holiday shipments in one place with the new Arrive app!

A package once sat on my porch for 3 days before I realized it had been delivered. 3 days, y’all! I have orders and PR packages coming to my house frequently via the major carriers. I thought I was being proactive by setting up accounts with each carrier. But, it’s a chore to keep track of multiple accounts.

Enter Shopify Arrive (download the app here).

It’s a new mobile app that lets you track all of your online orders and shipments in one place, regardless of carrier and retailer. It’s peace of mind in the palm of your hands.

Juggling deliveries is usually stressful for me this time of year. I’m receiving time-sensitive materials for blog content. I’m also receiving orders I have to get to family in St. Kitts. What’s coming? What’s already been delivered? Finding answers to these questions would typically make me dizzy. Arrive takes all the stress away by making it so easy to keep track of all of that information.

Setting up Arrive App

Just so you know, the Arrive app is available for free for iPhone. Getting set up is a breeze too. Find the app here, install it, then sync (by simply entering an email address at log in) a gmail account to the app. The magic begins immediately. With your explicit permission only, the app instantly scans your email for orders and tracking information and automatically organizes the delivery information for you. There’s no need to be concerned about the app getting all up in your business either because it only uses information directly related to packages like tracking numbers and mail carrier information.

Don’t use just one email account to manage your orders? No worries. You can also manually enter delivery information into the app.

Favorite Features of Arrive

My favorite feature of the Arrive app (find out even more here) is that it gives me up-to-the-minute package tracking on my orders. I ordered a special holiday gift from a store in California, and I’ve been closely monitoring its journey to me because I have to be available to sign for it. I love being able to do that right from phone.

The ability to do this is so crucial because estimated delivery times can change, especially during the busy holiday season. For example, I expected a shipment of my go-to skincare products last Saturday, but the package surprisingly arrived early on Friday. I only knew to collect the package because Arrive (get it here) notified me that it had been delivered. You have the option to enable push notifications for delivery changes in the status of your deliveries.

Keeping track of ALL of my deliveries in ONE place makes life so easy. And, after a package is delivered? Arrive (download it for free here) continues to be useful because it keeps a delivery history too.
