Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving day!! I’m not out Black Friday shopping this year – it is so cold in Ohio and hard to get out w/Luke so I am staying in cozied up — shopping online! Anyone else doing that?!?!?

I spent several hours last night browsing online to find the best sales.. Honestly some are not THAT good.. ya know?! As I was online shopping – I realized there are several great sales so I thought a sale round up was in order.

Photo Details in widget below (my sweater & blanket are no longer available so I am linking similar!)

This sweater & these jeans are part of the sale!

This top is part of the sale – comes in several colors!


First things first, Nordstrom has already started one of the best sales. I went through the womens & kids section on our way to the airport and added SO many things to my cart. It’s not old out of season items that are on sale – it’s new, current, really cute items & great brands!  THIS sweater I actually gotand may be wearing it today or tomo!

The tan sweater dress w/bows on sleeves in THIS POST, this silky top that is seriously so eye catching & easy to wear in THIS POST,  & the Free People sweater from THIS post!

I saw a couple of Tory Burch handbags [this tote], my UGG house slippers, a few BP cardigans I’d had my eye on [like this one], a couple of my v-neck sweaters I wear regularly (oversized to fall off the shoulder), boots [these!], & some CA-UTE coats [love this one!]! I’ll add everything to the widget. Not even going to lie – I am dying over THIS coat and I do not need another camel coat! There are a ton of beauty items as well – like this acrylic makeup organizer & the light up makeup vanities I mentioned in Monday’s post.

Freshly Picked || 25% OFF OF SALE ITEMS

Some of our favorite shoes for LUKE that stay on the best and go w/everything are from Freshly Picked!


I’ve been wearing a TON of clothing from Express the past 4-5 months. A few posts to check out to see my faves from Express are HERE, HERE, HERE, & HERE.

PS. The grey chenille sweater I wore in a recent IG and had a TON of questions ab is on sale for $30. I got it in a medium so it would be slouchy and oversized! Also, this pullover I wore on our flight to Boston and had TONS of you ask ab – it is on sale for $30, too! I could go on and on bc I have been wearing a ton of Express lately and buy a lot of my clothing there. *Photo below is a pic of the burgundy oversized pullover- so soft and SUPER warm.

If you follow my blog, you may have seen that I have been wearing a TON of H&M the past several months. I’ve just gotten hooked because they have the best sweaters & basics – w/fun colors & also designer dupes — all at REALLY good price points. A couple of popular posts w/H&M products are HERE, HERE, & HERE.

Also, a lot of Luke’s outfits come from H&M – like the little hat & llama sweater in the photo below.. and I added a photo of the cutest cable knit sweater I wore in a recent post from Boston!


I am obsessed w/this emerald green velvet blazer!! So perfect holidays & all of winter – especially if you have to dress business casual for work! Also love this neon beanie! I added this wine colored velvet ‘tee’ in my cart as well!


I actually have not taken a look on the sale just yet but almost every year my mom and I end up taking advantage of Ann Taylor’s Black Friday sales! I absolutely adore this emerald green, ruffled sweater dress! So cute for work w/pumps or casually w/boots!

I got a few things from J.Crew a few days ago! I got these cute PJ pants [packed them for this trip!] & these earrings.

Boohoo || 50% OFF SITEWIDE

Forever a favorite of mine – this site has so many cute things that are super affordable and very on trend! With everything being 50% off – this could be dangerous!

Chicwish || Extra 15% off orders over $70

One of my favorite websites to shop on – I recently wore this gray turtleneck and people stopped me in the mall asking where I found it. I get a lot of my really fun, funky things there!

I will add some favorites that are in my shopping card to the widget below


I have several really cute sweaters & cardigans from here right now – like this cardigan from my Instagram post the other night!



Lulu & Georgia || 20% OFF SITEWIDE

Use code GOGOGO for 20% of their entire website. I get a lot of furniture, rugs, lamps, & home decor from L&G – its one of my go-to shopping spots for home! Luke’s rug in his nursery is from here!

Waiting on Martha || 30% OFF SITEWIDE

Another “secret weapon” go-to website of mine for home decor & gifts. I buy SO much from this site! This is a buy more, save more sale & I’d recommend really perusing the site because you will find SO many great gift ideas and home decor ideas. Any time they have a sale I usually try to stock up on gifts for friends & family. I’m obsessed w/these serving spoons for queso, salsa, & guacamole – hysterical!! I’d def. recommend this site if you have to get any kind of gift for a recently engaged friend, someone w/a new home, or just basically just anything. I’ve even ordered John a cap off of there! The NEW ARRIVALS section has some CA-UTE Christmas ornaments – I am totally ordering some. PS. This acrylic pen cup / business card holder would be perfect on a desk!

We have THIS little starburst statue in our home & these as well! Also – I get a lot of questions ab my eyelash travel mug – it is from here.

Serena & Lilly || 20% OFF SITEWIDE

Use code CHEERS to get 20% off of the Serena & Lilly website. This is where we got a few things for Luke’s nursery but we’ve also ordered home decor & furniture from this site as well!

Wanderlust || 30% OFF SITEWIDE

Use code CYBER to get 30% off site wide! I have a couple of necklaces from here that I adore- they are from a new collection that is actually not part of the sale but there are sooooo many great necklaces on here. I really love this necklace! *That’s where the necklace is from a recent IG I posted -& also in the photo from the Express sale section!

Baublebar || 35% OFF SITEWIDE

Use code VIP35 until noon today to get 35% off your total order! Of course I love all of their fun statement earrings BUT I am debating ab ordering THIS necklace! How cool is that for an everyday layering necklace?!

I ended up skipping out and not posting on here yesterday, so sorry! I always post on Thanksgiving day but w/all the travel & Luke – I decided to spend the time w/family instead. I was also able to go through the Louis Vuitton wallet giveaway & we have a winner: ALICIA MERRIT

Please e-mail me today w/your current shipping address and this will go out on Monday!

  6. im so sorry to ask again!!! I’ve looked on the blog and can’t find the details but if you don’t mind telling me where you got the toy soldier/nutcrackers on your front door you showed last year at Christmas time? I’d love to find some for our front porch:) thanks so much! I know your super busy and I’m sorry to bother you but if you have a minute to answer that would be great:) have a wonderful week!!

  7. I have read about all your skin issues. I have melasma as well. I was wondering have you ever tried fraxel. I recently had it done and I really can tell a difference and it has really helped my pores so much!! It’s nice to read someone ELSE’S tips for such issues. It’s a daily battle.
