Need an idea for a quick field trip? My Orange County girls should head to the Outlets at Orange, formerly known as The Block. The entire outdoor mall has switched to an outlet mall and worth the short drive. I try to stop by every other month to see what’s new and pick up some great bargains. I have a loop that I do when I go. I start at The Nordstrom Rack, hit the Ann Taylor Loft outlet, then cross over to the Banana Republic Factory store, stop by the Nike outlet, and then end at the Ann Taylor Factory store. If I have more time, I also breeze through the Off 5th Sak’s outlet and Last Call Neiman Marcus outlet. On this trip, I bought a great black dress, purse, and bracelet at Banana Republic, a skirt and sweater at Loft, and a skirt at Ann Taylor. I bought several things at the Nordstrom Rack, but it is all going back… I don’t know what I was thinking!
