*I partnered with Clinton Crossing Premium Outlets and SIMON for this post*

This past Sunday Lydia and I attended a Fall Fashion Preview at Clinton Crossing Premium Outlets. This event was a bit different from the past, we did a scavenger hunt for the latest trends, which Clinton Crossing has laid out in their Fall Trend Cheat Sheet which will be available at the outlet for free! Read on after my outfit to see what trends we found!

When you shop at Simon Premium Outlets, be sure to sign up for the Simon Savings Passport. You'll get access to coupons through the web, your phone OR their app! I didn't buy anything since we were mostly browsing for the trends BUT I will definitely be back to spend the $50 gift card Simon Premium Outlets graciously gifted us! (And I have $10 left on another gift card.)

Here's what I wore while we shopped til we dropped! (Confession: I changed into sandals after a while) I decided to bring my Proenza Schouler shorts into Fall by wearing them with a sweater. Next time I'll try them with black tights so I can wear them when it's even cooler!

Cashmere Double V-Neck Sweater: Calypso St. Barth (Gilt Groupe), Tweed Colorblock Shorts: Proenza Schouler (Roundabout), Suede Mules: BCBGeneration 'Beverly' (Saks Off Fifth at Clinton Crossing), Bag: Chloé Faye (eBay)

And on to the scavenger hunt! We were looking for trends for men and women as we shopped through the outlets and were pretty successful with everything on our list! The stores are only beginning to get in Fall items so I'm sure in the coming weeks there will be TONS of options for your Fall wardrobe update.

Timberland was having a try on event for their new Tiltson boot. I tried the burgundy and Lydia went for the black suede! Left photo by Clinton Crossing right by Lydia
Each of the boots also had a matching hobo bag!
A major Fall trend is velvet booties, this pair from American Eagle was super cute (Photo by Clinton Crossing)

Banana Republic has working girls covered with cute printed pencil skirts and fitted blazers.
We can't forget the guys. I'm pondering these sporty suits (Photo by Clinton Crossing)
Leave it to me to find the one non-printed piece at Vera Bradley. Fell in love with this bright pink backpack!
Vera Bradley also had some really cute animal print/textured bags
If I had a Fall wedding to attend I would go full on sequin with this mini dress by Parker, found at Saks Off 5th! I wanted this Sandro dress, but it was a little too expensive to justify since I don't go to many evening events.
We ended our day with brunch at Chow Food & Beverage Co.  Lydia and I shared their AMAZINGGGG BBQ Meatballs. They’re smoked pork and beef meatballs wrapped in bacon with a pineapple chipotle glaze topped with picked red onions. I had the Chicken & Waffles and Lydia chose pulled pork tacos.

I'm assuming that I wore this outfit with a coat and not just this sweater since this look is from January. But it works perfectly for these early Fall days with no extra layers. Only 2 original pieces in this look today, but I do still have the flats. I'm wearing two new pieces. I changed into velvet mules I bought on the way home and my new Everlane jeans that were delivered!

Sweater: American Eagle, Tee: Everlane, Jeans: Everlane "The High-Rise Skinny Jean" in Mid-Blue, Velvet Floral Embroidered Mules: Zigi Soho (T.J. Maxx), Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Net-a-Porter)

The Original:
I decided to go blue on blue on blue with a hint of purple and leopard print for a lunch and shopping date with friends. You can never have too much monochrome, right?

Tee: Everlane, Corduroys: Abercrombie, Leopard Loafers c/o Joie 'Dylan', Necklace: House of Harlow 1960 'Station' c/o South Moon Under, Sunglasses: Gucci, Eyeglasses chain: Tinksky (Amazon), Bag: Chloé Faye (eBay)

I don't wear this top very often because I find it hard to style. I think the last time it was on the blog I wore it with these jeans too. Oh well, at least it's got different accessories this time! Including my gorgeous dark purple Chloé Faye, oh how I love this bag!!! I also attempted an inside-out french braid but you can't really see it in the photos.

Top: J Cooper (Lord & Taylor), Jeans: Current/Elliott (sample sale), Flats: Chanel (eBay), Bag: Chloé Faye (eBay)

I always feel like I'm stepping back in time when I wear these 70s flared Free People jeans.  They add such an element of fun to any look. I had wanted to wear this tank top and didn't feel like wearing it with shorts or regular jeans so - flares to the rescue!

Top: Cynthia Rowley c/o Marshalls, 70s Flared Jeans: Free People (Marshalls), Heels: New Look (ASOS), Aviator Sunglasses: Gucci

Here is another outfit where I only had 2 of the pieces left in my closet. I'm only wearing one in this recreation because I'm not a huge fan of the sandals, not sure why I'm holding on to them still...perhaps it's time to let them go.

Blazer: Jones New York (Burlington), Top: MICHAEL Michael Kors (Lord & Taylor), Jeans: FRAME 'Le Skinny de Jeanne' (Shopbop), Sandals: Mula c/o Marshalls

The original:
We didn't get to go to Disney for free this trip, BUT we took advantage of an awesome promotion they had. Annual passholders were able to get up to 6 friends tickets for $80 instead of $170. SCORE! When my friends and I go to Disney we don't play around. It was 12 hours of constant moving from ride to ride getting everything checked off. We ended up only eating lunch and basically forgot to get dinner, oops! Don't worry, I grabbed a Mickey pretzel on the go before I fainted, ha ha.

I was finally able to wear my super cute Mickey bag from Coach at Disney! He was so excited to be in his homeland. (I know, I'm super weird! Deal with it)

Camisole: Eight Sixty, Shorts c/o Banana Republic Factory (Clinton Crossing), Mickey Mouse Bag: Coach x Disney 'Patricia Saddle in Glove Calf Leather with Mickey Ears' (Coach Outlet),  Sandals: Glasses chain: Tinksky (Amazon), Sandals: Sam Edelman c/o ThredUp, Sunglasses: Ray Ban 'Erika'
