My Favorite Black Friday Picks + Sales

While I don’t wake up at the crack of dawn to tackle the sales, it’s always been a tradition for me, my mom, sister, and grandma to head out to the mall and start our Christmas shopping. This year won’t be an exception. After a slow morning (and a quick workout), we will likely pull ourselves together and head out for a few hours, if not to take in the holiday decorations and festivities. Yet, I have realized that many of the same sales that are in the stores, are on-line as well (and sometimes even better). So, if you’re looking to avoid the crowds and lounge around all day in your pajamas, then I’ve got you covered with some of my favorites from the Black Friday sales.

Nordstrom:

 Nordstrom is currently offering 25% off sale items and they recently marked down tons of my favorite items, and pieces that I have my eye on too. The coziest sweater ever (seriously, so soft) is currently marked down (featured above and comes in so many different color options), as is this frayed edge v-neck sweater (I own it in the olive green color). This bell sleeve and ruffle hem blouse (that I featured here) is on sale for under $50 and comes in so many great color options. This mesh insert top, in the pinot color, is one of my favorites as well. My favorite pair of druzy earrings are perfect as a gift or a fun holiday celebration. A few of my other personal favorites that are on sale include my Hunter rain boots and my favorite booties (52% off!).

I am also eyeing some over the knee boot options. A few favorites include this chestnut pair (which also comes in 2 different colors) and this lighter chestnut colored option….. both are gorgeous and reasonably priced. These black slides are on sale, and they’re also on my Christmas list.

J.Crew:

I’ve always loved J.Crew for their classic pieces, but love it even more when everything is 40% off. A few items that I grabbed for our cold weather trip to Deer Valley include this oversized sweater, plaid button-up, buffalo check boyfriend shirt, and striped oversized turtleneck. While I didn’t wear them all, I certainly won’t have a problem wearing them around town.  A few other fun ideas for the holidays include this plaid camisole pajama set, this lace peplum top, and this holiday perfect plaid scarf.

 

ShopBop: 

Always a huge Shopbop fan over here… free shipping (free 2 day if you’re an Amazon Prime member), free returns, and a huge selection of amazing items. I purchased a few gifts during their “Buy More, Save More” sale, which is still going on. I bought this choker necklace for my sister, as well as this adorable white peplum blouse. I also snagged this buffalo check cape/scarf. A few items I added to my Christmas list include this taupe colored studded bag (I own the bigger version in white), these gold aviators (gorgeous!!), and this fabulous black felt hat (!!).

 

TULA:

After years of trying a few different skin care lines, I discovered TULA and fell in love. I’ve shared their products here a few times, but thought that I would let you know that all products are currently 25% off (and free shipping!!). My favorite items include the illuminating serum (I have noticed a significant shift in my skin brightness since using this product), the exfoliating mask (I use it 3xs a week, and love how soft it leaves my face!), and the overnight skin rescue cream and the under eye cream (both are excellent moisturizers). If you have a beauty lover in your life, checkout their kits + gift sets…. you seriously can’t go wrong with them!

 

Anthropologie:

I walked into Anthropologie today and pretty much wanted the entire store. Well, that pretty much happens to me all the time. They’re currently offering 30% off every item (use code LETSGO)!! So, my favorite pink cardigan is on sale, along with this uber soft grey cardi (it comes in so many gorgeous color options). I snagged these gold rimmed cocktail glasses, cocktail shaker, and this little ornament for Harper. I also love these sequin joggers and this beautiful sequin top.
