Now that I’ve finally accepted that it is, in fact, December (didn’t it kind of sneak up on us out of nowhere?!) – I can finally officially start my gift shopping. Even if you are on a budget, you can still check everyone off your list and show all of your friends and family just how special they are to you with these gifts that are $25 and under!
Okay, I don’t want to be dramatic but coming back to work after being off for a full week is the HARDEST THING EVER. Thankfully, I woke up to lots of emails about amazing sales to help me get up on the right side of the bed. I’m four cups of coffee into this day and rounding up the sales you should shop now (there’s a lot of them).

Urban Outfitters: $50 off orders of $150 OR $15 off orders of $75. Discount is automatically applied at checkout!

PS- Check out our Black Friday Sale Roundup for all things fashion that we posted earlier today!
Black Friday is here! Wake up from that food coma and take advantage of the amazing deals retailers are offering. The best part – you can shop of all of these sales online and not even leave your couch!
J. Crew: You still have time to take advantage of the best sale EVER. Use code HOLIDAY to receive 40% off of your purchase. I spy with my little eye…lots of perfect items for gifting (be sure to check out the full gift guides for all the ladies and gents in your life for even more gifting inspo)!
Anthropologie: Use code LETSGO to get 30% off your entire purchase. Quick side note – rounding all of these sales up for you all is really hard because they are SO AMAZING and now I want to buy EVERYTHING. Okay moving on…..if there was any store that could persuade me to wear a velvet jumpsuit, it would be Anthro.
Gap: TGIF50. Nope, I didn’t type that wrong, that is the code that will get you 50% off site wide at Gap. Personally, I’m a huge fan of their denim and lounging gear *insert thumbs up emoji here*. They’ve even developed “gift kits” – selecting a group of perfect together items so it really takes all of the work out of it for you!
Banana Republic: 50% off five full priced items (NO exclusions!). Use code BRFIVE. Banana is really stepping up their game lately and you’re guaranteed to find some gifts for the super stylish folks in your life (check out the gift guides for her and him) and maybe a few pieces for your own holiday wardrobe, too!
The sales really are never ending today and we’re going to keep sharing them with you…after we have some coffee.
What do you want for Christmas?
Sound familiar? Have a point of view already! There are tons of fantastic options out there, and you don’t want errands (mall returns) for Christmas, do you? Instead, opt for items you actually want and will use. Some food for thought below!
This oversize cashmere wrap (currently 40% off!) is perfect for traveling – keeping you chic and cozy as you jet off for business or pleasure. Comes in five color options (I honestly can’t choose, they are all so versatile!). Here’s another very similar option to consider: Fringe Cashmere Wrap.
diptyque candles and fragrance
They smell amazing. And, when you’re done with ‘em, they make super trendy pencil cups, tiny vases, or vessels to store your Q-tips. #recycling.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
The hair dryer of the future will *only* set you (or Santa) back $400.
If you’ve had your eyes on Hunter Original High Gloss Boots, you’ll be happy to hear there are new color options in stock! I have the Original Black Gloss, but Graphite Gloss, Dark Slate, and Military Red are oh-so-tempting, too. Also think the short Sperry ‘Saltwater’ Waterproof Rain Boots are cute-as-can-be.
Confession: I’ve never owned any La Mer products, but from the rave reviews, I trust they’re onto something. While definitely a splurge, take advantage of holiday offers and gift sets.
Sail to Sable Dresses
I mean, how hard is it to pick just one?
Now that we’ve hopefully inspired your “gift-to-self” or “Dear Santa…” list, what else should we consider gifting this season? Share your favorite gift items in the comments below!
As soon as my hunt for a good deal on a flight home begins, so does the search for the perfect Christmas day outfit. This year, I have not yet had any luck with the former, but the latter was solved quite easily when I began seeing velvet pieces everywhere (LOFT has an amazing selection and with 40% of EVERYTHING right now, you can’t pass up trying this trend out!).

Let’s all agree that pink velvet shoes need to become a staple item in all of our closets…

Over the past couple of months, New York has offered up the most confusing weather I think I’ve ever experienced. I’ve gone from nights of layering up for bed praying my radiator turns on to cranking my AC the next day. This also entails switching up my wardrobe daily – kind of annoying. BUT…we’ve had about three days of chilly weather (the longest stretch so far!) so I think it might officially be time to bundle up! If you’re a longtime reader of the blog you know I’m extremely fond of the cold temps. Blame it on my Midwestern roots, but I can’t resist a good winter coat and think outfits are better when multiple layers are involved.
I can’t wait to share all of my favorite cold weather pieces over the next couple of weeks but let’s start with the pieces everyone will see the most – coats, hats, scarves, gloves..basically all of the best things about winter. Also, because I’m already in the holiday spirit of giving, all of the items below are ON SALE. Like..major sale (40% off at J. Crew for example. Yeah, I wasn’t lying!).
And okay – I know the holidays are all about spending time with friends and family, but why not also score a good deal on gifts for those friends and family members?! Check out the sale roundup below featuring all of the great deals you can get during the days leading up to the infamous Black Friday:
3. NORDIC PARKA
Also comes in Dark Poppy, Bleached Sand, Emerald Pool, Navy, Black. Which one would you wear the most?
Also comes in several other fun and festive colors.
8. COZY TROUSER SOCKS IN FAIR ISLE
*Shown front + center!
9. SADIE POM-POM ANKLE-STRAP FLATS IN TARTAN
How perfect for the holidays, right? Act fast – sizes are selling out quickly!
This isn’t all about you. You know that, right? Start making a list of gifts for the women in your life. We’re fond of the following gifts in shades that suit the season!
Ready or not, it’s that time of year again, folks! To make things a little less stressful, we’ve rounded up a series of gifts for your consideration. First up, Gifts for Women – Under $50.
2. Glossier gifts are sure to please, and they don’t break the bank!
Pair the Glossier Terry Headband with one of their cleansing masks – the detoxifying Mega Greens Galaxy Pack or Mousturizing Moon Mask. I’d also highly recommend Generation G Matte Lipstick (my favorite shades are Jam and Zip) and ‘The Supers’ concentrated serums. Pick up Super Bounce for softer skin and Super Glow, for an even skin tone. Add Priming Moisturizer before adding makeup! Save 20% on your first Glossier purchase by shopping with this link.
3. Save big with seasonal makeup kits.
Like the Dior Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara & Eyeshadow Palette and the Bobbi Brown Bellini Lip & Eye Palette.
4. S’well Stainless Steel Water Bottles come in a variety of fun finishes, including:
5. Turkish Towels – Love these multi-purpose towels. Great for laying out on the beach or as a swimsuit coverup. Also makes a great shawl / oversized scarf. Can also be used as a traditional hand or body towel or fun home decor accent. The Linum Home Textiles line at Nordstrom is a personal favorite.
Designs include: Herringbone Striped Turkish Pestemal Towel / ‘Luxe Herringbone’ Turkish Pestemal Towel / ‘Sea Waves’ Turkish Pestemal Towel / ‘Seaside Fun’ Turkish Pestemal Towel.
There’s also a darling baby version by Little Giraffe.
6. When it comes to accessories, I’ve got my eye on these Gorjana Power Gemstone Bracelets (talk about an arm party!).
and this Tonal Stripe Foldover Clutch
Love both black and stone. You won’t believe the price!
7. I’ve been seeing plenty of chic winter hats out already, including:
Estes Park Beanie / Chatham Pom Beanie / Hinge Knit Pom Pom Beanie / Ribbed Faux-Fur Pom Pom Beanie by Calvin Klein, and the iconic Hudson’s Bay Company Pom Pom Tuque. Act quick, these always seem to sell out right away.
8. Gotta love rifle paper Rifle Paper Co!
