Today marks the beginning of one of the best weekends for all of your holiday shopping needs! After working in marketing for a few years now, I can tell you that it’s the time to stock up on your favorites and get a head start on your holiday list. I’ve rounded up all of the sales that you need to know about and some of my favorite picks. Hope you had a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving (full of turkey and family time)!
Not only is it the most wonderful time of the year, but this is one of the biggest sale weeks of the year! Whether you’ve started making your list or are just perusing for things to pick up this season, this is the first of many you’ll want to be browsing! Shopbop started their Black Friday/Cyber Monday early with a buy more, save more using the code GOBIG15.
I picked out some of my favorite pieces for you to shop, but also find myself during these sales picking up staple pieces:
Rag & Bone is not a brand you’ll usually find on sale, so whether you’re looking for booties or jeans now is the time to snag some
It’s never too early to stock up on summer favorites like these cutoff shorts–I pretty much lived in mine last year!
Loeffler Randall is another brand I love to snag on sale during this season: these lace up flats are adorable and their clutches are perfect for day or night
Parkas are hard to come by and are not gonna lie.. kind of boring to shop for. This Woolrich light pink version is a welcome change to the usual black ones you see everywhere
For those of you traveling, be safe and enjoy your Thanksgiving wherever you are!
My pet peeve with myself in the coming months is that I tend to wear the same color combinations over and over again. I get sick of my closet (and myself for not diversifying) so quickly by wearing them all out. My other fall challenge this year was to find new color combinations that I really like. You may have seen this look mixing olive and navy, it was a favorite of mine.
I usually pair all of my olive pieces with black but was pleasantly surprised at how great it looks with a lighter palette. This cardigan might be the softest thing I’ve added to my closet in a long time and I’m in love. I reach for this sweater at least once a week and it’s even better for your friends who like to give you hugs! Not only is it cozy, but it pairs well with just about everything I own–a major win in the versatility department. You can throw it on over a top with jeans or dress it up with a dress and over the knee boots.
Paired with my favorite Everlane sleeveless sweater that you’ve seen a few times – it’s great in all seasons. In short this is my favorite new color twist on a very basic outfit. I’m headed back to Texas tomorrow and all of these pieces will be coming with me. Counting down the hours until I get to see my family!
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know leopard is a print that took a little bit of growing on me. I started small with the skinniest belt you’ve ever seen, but since have expanded into other pieces and most recently these cute little Aerosoles wedges.
Tell-tale signs of getting older: wanting to be in bed by 10:30 at the latest and wanting to wear more comfortable shoes. People always used to look at me in 4” stilettos and say “one day you’ll stop wearing those and just want to be comfortable”. While I’m happy to say I’m not quite there yet (and don’t hope to be for a while), I definitely have shifted to a more comfortable but still stylish approach.
In the fall I gravitate towards camels and neutrals and find it more difficult to incorporate prints compared to my print-happy summer style. Leopard is the perfect complement to a fall palette – it’ll work with just about any shade. The color of the year is definitely shining this season in this little Henri Bendel number that has become my favorite sidekick. I added these leopard wedges to a very simple but still polished day-to-night look.
Sometimes I get stumped on what to pair leopard shoes with, but my go to is usually a black skirt like this one or skinny jeans to let the shoes do the talking. I’m always up for a good challenge and am excited to share that I’m a part of the Aerosoles style off contest! If you’re loving the look pop on over to their page and vote!
