I love the holiday season. Spending time with family, cooking and baking, and hanging out by the fire are my favorite activities. And I love that there’s a season where everyone gets on board with my ideal lifestyle!
I think I do a pretty good job of not getting wrapped up in the more materialistic aspects of the holidays, but I have to admit – I LOVE Black Friday deals. (Although I’m not sure you can even call them Black Friday deals any more, because they start before Thanksgiving and last much longer than just one day.) In order to keep from doing too much shopping of my own, I’m channeling my personal shopper energy today by sharing some of my favorite sales with you!
IMHO, the best sale is J. Crew’s 40% off sale. It’s a great time to stock up on some closet staples like coats, sweaters, denim, and even swimwear! I never buy anything full price, so I always wait for sales like this to make big ticket purchases. I got my favorite winter coat in this sale last year and I’m dying for the temperature in D.C. to drop so I can start wearing it again! And if you don’t own the Résumé dress (I have it in multiple colors – it’s the perfect work dress!) or Regent blazer (a classic in any color), now is the time!
I also got some really cute new things from this year’s sale that I think will really freshen up my wardrobe just in time for the new year! I’m a sucker for fresh new pajamas, and I don’t know how I’ve waited so long to get this leopard belt.
Of course J. Crew is not the only retailer having a fantastic sale right now. Here are some of my other favorite Black Friday deals going on online right now:
Old Navy – 40% off everything
Shopbop – Up to 30% off of full-price items using the code MORE17
Abercrombie and Fitch – 50% off of everything and free shipping on all orders
I’ve always loved the Old Navy Pixie pants, but I am especially obsessed with my latest pair. They are fun and festive for holiday parties or even just for work! I’ve only worn them once but got so many compliments on them. The fit is so flattering on a variety of body types!
I also feel like I may need to splurge on this scarf which never goes on sale. I’ve got a lot of travel coming up in the new year, and a cashmere scarf is a great airplane accessory – you can use it as a scarf, a blanket, a shawl, or even balled up as a pillow in a pinch!
I know it can be overwhelming to pour through the hundreds of thousands of things on sale in search of a good deal, so I hope this was helpful! Be sure to check back tomorrow as I’ll be sharing some of my favorite gifts that are on sale!
