Happy Wednesday! I had all intentions of recapping my getaway with my mom last week but things got in the way! So, I am excited to chat about our mother daughter shopping trip today! Each year,  we spend a few nights away shopping until we drop and just getting some uninterrupted time together! We found a lot of good fall clothes and fortunately we scored some great deals. Today, I’ll share some of our favorite fall clothing purchases!

Fall Shopping Trip Recap

We always leave in the late afternoon on Friday and then, as soon as we get into town, we shop until the stores close! We started at some of the discount stores including Homegoods, Marshalls and Nordstrom Rack.

We weren’t on the hunt for anything in particular in the way of home decor but it’s always fun to get inspiration! I shared some of my favorite home decor finds on our trip in last week’s Friday Favorites post!

My mom was checking out all of the beautiful rugs!

One of the clothing items on my shopping list was a pair of workout pants and I found a pair at Nordstrom Rack. These high waisted Z by Zella leggings are perfect for fall! You can spend so much money on workout clothes, therefore, I was happy to find these pants at a bargain!

I also scored this brown vegan material purse at Marshalls. My mom liked it so much she got the same one in black! At just under $30 it was a great deal!

I typically use a back pack or a cross over bag, but I am excited to have this handbag option!

Saturday, we were up early and we went to the nearby the big outdoor mall. This place has pretty much every store you could think of!

My mom and I always come with a list of things we are looking for….although we sometimes stray from the list too:)

I was on the lookout for cute, casual clothes that I can wear every day.

This coffee tee at Evereve was calling my name (I mean how fitting for a coffee loving mom?!)

Espresso Yourself Tee

I think I’ll be wearing this top on repeat especially with my favorite BP cardigan (on sale!)

My mom also found this cute striped sweater at Evereve. It’s a perfect sweater to wear now especially since the temperatures have dropped!

I was also on the hunt for a few workout tops. Most days I live in my workout gear all day until I’m “forced” to put on real clothes...or change into pajamas. Can anyone else relate?!

This gray racer back tank from Athleta works well with my new Zella pants.

I love the mesh detail on the back and the top is currently on sale!

Then, I found this gray pullover from Athleta. So soft and comfy!

I found so many cozy and versatile pieces at Athleta but I didn’t want to spend my whole budget there:)

I rarely shop at American Eagle but I decided to give it a try.  We found a lot of nice tops! This pink sweatshirt is a super cozy and casual but just a little step up for a very basic sweatshirt. It will be perfect with my new Spank leggings I purchased in my Trendsend box!

My mom and I also got these thermal tops from American Eagle. The tunic length is perfect for leggings. I am always looking for “legging appropriate”  tops (aka cover the booty kind of tops)!

My final purchase of the day were these black high rise jeans from Gap. You might remember I LOVED these high waisted black jeans I received in my last Trendsend box. However, I did not love the price tag. (gulp!). So I found these jeans at the Gap that were just as soft and stretchy as the Evereve pair. At almost a $100 less (there is always a Gap sale!) than the Evereve pair, I could not pass these up!

This year’s shopping trip was all about the basics! Some years I am on the hunt for a new pair of boots or a new coat. But this year, my search was all about casual, every day outfits that I can wear on repeat all winter long!

Shopping Wrap Up

After almost two days of shopping and logging many miles on our feet (Saturday we clocked in over 15, 000 steps), we were tired and happy! Our final day, Sunday morning, we took our time getting moving (our legs were so tired!) and we spent the morning reviewing all of our purchases.

On our way out of town we stopped at Ikea and leisurally strolled through the store! We didn’t have it in us to do any more serious shopping. Not to mention we spent our budget! So we just enjoyed the last few hours together and then headed home!

    LOVE your camo top in the pic with your mom- where did you get it? So glad you got some great deals especially the ones at Athleta- i am drooling over the tops 🙂

    • Jaclyn on October 17, 2018 at 6:46 am

      That camo top was from my Trendsend box–Evereve!

    Mother-daughter shopping trips are so fun. My mom and I used to go when I was in high school, and now we go when we can. I love those times. I love your espresso tee!

    • Jaclyn on October 17, 2018 at 8:06 pm

      It is hard to find the time now to shop so I do appreciate our once a year tradition. Thanks on the tee–it is really soft and comfy too!

  3. ShootingStarsMag on October 17, 2018 at 7:33 am

    What a fun tradition and it looks like you both got some great items. I could use a new pair of jeans…and just some pants in general. I’m also all about workout clothes, whether I’m working out or not. LOL


    • Jaclyn on October 17, 2018 at 8:03 pm

      I always have a hard time finding jeans that I love and will continue to wear over time. So far these Gap ones are great!

  4. Carli Roberts on October 17, 2018 at 7:40 am

    I LOVE Home Goods. I always find WAY more than I need in there. I am loving that thermal top you posted too. I wish we lived close because we could be shopping buddies. 🙂

    • Jaclyn on October 17, 2018 at 8:02 pm

      Ha ha I could always use more shopping buddies:) The thermal top is so cozy–I think I might need to pick up another one!

  5. Caroline Martin on October 17, 2018 at 8:49 am

    I miss shopping with your mom. We used to bond over our shared love of shopping ?

    • Jaclyn on October 17, 2018 at 8:00 pm

      I can imagine you two were great shoppers together!

  6. Laura on October 17, 2018 at 10:39 am

    I love that you and your mom matched! Looks like you scored some deals on your spree!

    • Jaclyn on October 17, 2018 at 8:00 pm

      There were some great Columbus day sales!

  7. Brandi Wiatrak on October 17, 2018 at 11:34 am

    I can’t wait to do shopping trips like this with my daughter! You scored very well! Love the Espresso shirt and the shoes you wore with your Gap pants. What a fun weekend! ♥️

    • Jaclyn on October 17, 2018 at 7:59 pm

      I take my daughter on a back to school shopping trip but I do also look forward to the weekend getaways in our future!

  8. Megan on October 17, 2018 at 1:00 pm

    I love how you put the cardigan over the coffee tee! That looks so nice…you gave me some good ideas for myself!

    • Jaclyn on October 17, 2018 at 7:59 pm

      Megan-Thank you! The tee is so comfy but the addition of the cardigan makes it even cozier and cold weather appropriate!

  9. Andrea Nine on October 17, 2018 at 3:37 pm

    You two are the cutest! Just love shopping with my mom. Love your finds!! And you in that adorable Camo!

    • Jaclyn on October 17, 2018 at 7:58 pm

      Aww thank you Andrea! I’m grateful to spend the time with my mom:)

  10. Angie on October 17, 2018 at 11:00 pm

    Mother-daughter shopping trips are the best!! We do this almost every fall also and squeeze in a dinner theatre and pedicure as well. Cute finds!!

  11. Dara on October 18, 2018 at 8:44 am

    You found so many cute tops!!

  12. Shan on October 18, 2018 at 2:34 pm

    How sweet that you and your Mom have such a long-standing tradition with just the two of you. You snagged some really cute stuff too. ?

  13. Shannon on October 20, 2018 at 8:52 am

    I love this tradition!! Looks like you uncovered some great deals!

  14. Megan on January 25, 2019 at 1:38 pm
