Happy CYBER WEEK, y’all! Black Friday is out the window because sales have begun and they’re fabulous. I have a love-hate relationship with this new sale trend. On one hand, I feel totally unprepared. New sales are popping up literally every hour and it’s tough to keep track of all of them. On the other hand, I am thrilled that I can get all of my shopping out of the way so I can be present with my family on Thanksgiving and spend good, quality time with them. So I rounded up the best of the best pre-Black Friday sales to make all the mayhem a little more organized. Happy shopping!
Happy Tuesday, gang! Jeremy and I are on our way home from a Friendsgiving in Charlotte. We went on a trip to Beaufort this time last year, so we missed it. But luckily this time, we were able to celebrate with everyone. Now that I live in South Carolina, it’s becoming more and more rare that I venture to Charlotte. But now that the NASCAR off season has begun, hopefully we will have more opportunity.
I wanted to share with y’all today an outfit featuring a few pieces you will wear over and over again throughout the fall and winter. I say it every year but if there’s one piece to invest in, it is a pair of Hunter rain boots. I have had these for almost four years and reach for them constantly. I love the pink sand color for spring and summer and military red for colder months. This velvet bow tie sweater is another staple. The cream color matches everything, the silhouette is so classic, and the velvet bow is a unique touch. Lastly, these new fur/wool vests from J.Crew Factory are must-haves. I have both colors (the tan is gorgeous) and they’re on major sale right now!
Can you believe that Thanksgiving week is here? I’m weirdly ready for it this year! I spent much of the weekend venturing to and from Hobby Lobby and decorating our house for the holidays; all while watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Krampus. A few of you were asking where the small flocked pink Christmas trees I shared on Instagram were from and here is the link. I also got a 4.5′ tree and these champagne diamond ornaments for it. If you haven’t been by Hobby Lobby yet, prepare for a busy store! They are offering 50% off all Christmas decor which is an amazing deal, but apparently everyone got the memo!
This week is so exciting to me for a number of reasons. Most obviously is that I get to spend time with my family. It’s Jeremy and my first Thanksgiving as a married couple, so we have a few dinners we’re have to cram in to one day. Secondly, it’s Rivalry Week in college football! My alma mater has a HUGE game on Saturday that determines whether we’ll head to the conference championship. It’s Monday and I’m already nervous. And finally, I am one of those crazies that heads out Black Friday shopping after Thanksgiving dinner. I don’t have anything in particular on my list, more so I enjoy the people watching.
One of the craziest stores every Black Friday is Old Navy – I’m talking long lines, clothes strewn about, and mega deals. It really is a sight to behold! It’s like folks don’t realize that Old Navy is ALREADY offering amazing pre-Black Friday deals. If you haven’t stopped by their site, they’re offering 40% off of everything and 50% off of everything for credit card holders. That makes this adorable plaid dress only $22; so cheap that I may grab it in the other three colors. Be sure to keep coming by here throughout the week. I am posting every day about all of this week’s sales, so don’t miss out!
