Current Black Friday / Cyber Monday Deals
I hope you all are having a Happy Thanksgiving and enjoying some time with your families. I had started on this post Monday but the little ones ended up needing me more than I expected and I had to do some packing for a trip out to El Paso where we’re spending Thanksgiving! We had a long 12-hour road trip earlier today (the kids actually did so well!), and came in town just in time for an amazing home-cooked dinner! I’m finally wrapping up this post and will hopefully get back to a regular posting schedule!
The best sales of the year have started and the first one I shopped was the Shopbop Sale! It’s one of the best since so many designer items are included (Stuart Weitzman boots, y’all!) as well as other brands that are rarely discounted. The Shopbop sale is tiered so you save more the more you spend:
20% off orders of $200+
25% off orders of $500+
30% off orders of $800+
use code MORE17
(sale runs through November 26, 11:59pm PST)
I’m sharing pieces from the Shopbop sale that I own and are some of my closet staples that you need!
You guys all know my obsession with over the knee boots and Stuart Weitzman is hands-down my favorite! These are a splurge for sure but I haven’t found a better boot that actually stays up on my legs, has a slender leg-lengthening fit, and is petite-friendly. I own 3 different styles: the flat ‘Lowland’, the high-heel ‘Hiline’ (updated from the previous ‘Highland’), as well as the 5050 flat stretch boots. My favorite is the ‘Hiline’ style and the nutmeg color is such a classic cognac brown that’s so easy to pair with everything. There is also the ‘Thighland’ style which goes a little higher on the thigh and great if you have longer legs (sadly a problem I don’t have 😂). If you’re on your feet all day, I would recommend the Lowland flat boot style and actually picked up the lighter Mojave color for myself earlier this morning!
I wear AG Jeans almost exclusively as I just love the slim, flattering fit. Designer jeans were never really my thing until I had kids and now I need all the help I can get! 😆 AG Jeans are stretchy yet don’t stretch out, hug in all the right places, and have petite-friendly distressing! While the price is a bit of a splurge, these are a pair that you will wear constantly and make you feel good even on those days when you may not be feeling it. The step-hem style is my favorite as it shows just a peek of ankle as it shows just a peek of ankle (I end up cutting my hem an additional inch or so since the length is still a bit long on me, but the raw hem makes it easy!). If you’re not one for distressing, I love this pair and the darker wash is so great for the fall / winter season.
The super popular moto jacket that sold out instantly as part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is back and part of the Shopbop sale! I own both the gray and tan color and love the cropped fit. It’s a great piece for layering and it makes an outfit really come together! For reference, I’m wearing the XS and did end up having the sleeves hemmed shorter about 1.5”.
On the topic of BlankNYC jackets, you can’t forget their embroidered moto jacket! This piece really combines the best of edgy and feminine with its studded leather and floral embroidery. Sizes are almost sold out but check back for restocks if you have your eye on it!
Every girl needs black leggings and if you want something that will help suck in those extra helpings of stuffing (or cornbread if you’re like me!), you need this pair from Spanx! These leggings are super slimming and stretchy. They are high-waisted and help give some extra support in that tummy area which I think we may all be grateful for this time of year!
Plus a few more picks that I’m loving right now (I’m personally crushing on that velvet pleated dress and thinking it would be perfect for those holiday parties!):
burgundy wrap cardigan | white wrap cardigan | tan jacket | blush sweater | lace top
velvet pleated dress | black lace dress | busted knee jeans | distressed jeans | black studded mules | cap-toe heels
olive mini mac | burgundy chevron crossbody | floral clutch | black otk boots | tan otk boots
