Black Friday Sale Roundup

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)!

Loft: 50% off everything. Yep, every. single. thing. It doesn’t get more amazing than that. Use code FRIYAY to take advantage of this awesome sale.

Loft Black Friiday

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!

Nordstrom: Through Sunday, receive an additional 20% off select sale items. Check everything out here because there is too much great stuff to just pick a few items to show you!

Nordstrom Black Friday

Shopbop: Buy More, Save More…use code GOBIG16 to save up to 25% off your purchase. This applies to ALL full-price and sale items so kind of impossible to pass up, right?

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.

Stay tuned for posts throughout the day featuring more sales (beauty, home, tech…aka everything you’ll need to get all the names checked off that list of yours)!

Anthropologie New Arrivals

Anthropologie is always one of my favorites and their new arrivals for fall aren’t making it any easier for me to keep my credit card in my wallet. Here are just a few of the pieces I’m dreaming of having in my closet…(key word is dreaming because I’m going to have to wait for all of these things to go on sale, let’s be real).

Anthro Risen Sun Sweater

Risen Sun Sweater Dress

Anthro really has a spell cast on me, I think. When I’m on the website I really believe, “yes I can wear this sweater dress and look like a chic hippie free spirit just like the model. I need this.” So I might try this on and it won’t look good because my free spirit status is pretty low, but that doesn’t change the fact that I’m still obsessed with it.

Anthro Camofloral Neoprene Skirt

Camofloral Neoprene Skirt

I need this skirt. NEED. Imagine this in my family Christmas picture. Actually don’t…because if you can imagine my family’s Christmas picture that’s kind of creepy. But trust me, it would look really cute.

Anthro Domino Deco Cape

Domino Deco Cape

This cape could not be any more perfect. Definitely makes a statement but I don’t think its over the top. Love, love, LOVE.

Lumi Pullover

Lumi Pullover

You can never have too many basic t’s – but this one is so much fun with the trim and crossover detail. The perfect piece to spice up your errand running outfit a little (and it comes in lots of colors)!

And we can’t forget about shoes! Mostly boots which I am on the hunt for now that it is starting to get cooler out and my sandals are being put away:

I have about a million other favorite pieces that I just couldn’t include here for the sake of the post’s length, but be sure to check out our Pinterest for all of our fall fashion picks!

What I’m Into Right Now: Design & Decor

Having just moved from a 700 sq. ft apt into a 1,000 sq. ft apt,  I’m quite delighted by the amount of closet space I now have (not that there’s that much extra closet space, but you know, when J. Crew calls…)

This also explains the reason why I haven’t been blogging for a really long time. You see, I’ve been apt hunting and packing and moving and cleaning and finally…the fun part: Designing and Decorating!

Thought I’d share some of my design inspiration and new decor ideas!
I bring you, What I’m Into Right Now:


Crane & Canopy Bedding

I especially LOVE that it’s a startup and a husband + wife duo!

Sometimes I wish I didn’t have such expensive taste…

But to combat this issue, I’ve been doing things like:

Getting up at the crack of dawn on Saturday mornings in an attempt to score some fancy furniture at 70% off;
Scouring Craigslist for designer finds in great condition,
Keeping my eye on estate sales in key zip codes,

And Spray Painting Things Gold.

In order to make things look EXTRA LUXE, I’ve gotten really into spray painting things gold. I think the bf is getting really sick of me saying, “But what if I painted it gold?! Then it would look totally fab…”
Although I think it’s growing on him because just tonight I caught him reading Glitter & Goat Cheese

This IKEA Hack is at the top of my list:

And to Accessorize…

Apothocary Jars!

I mean, they’re just so versatile. You can keep your soap collection OR your fruit collection in them.
But seriously…look at these beautes:

{Hint: they are like dirt cheap at Home Goods}

 

Throw Pillows

and just to throw myself a curveball…I actually bought a couch that comes with throw pillows.
Probably a wise decision considering I could easily spend $250+ on throw pillows alone…
Martha's New Couch!Editor’s Note: I’ll be recovering the front two pillows that look like they have French graffiti handwriting all over them. I’ll opt for a POP of color instead. Suggestions? Tweet me!


{Nautical} Vinyl Wall Decals

I know what you’re thinking…they’re tacky and I hate them! I was totally with you until I saw these…

Nautical Anchor Wall Decals
and I knew I absolutely had to have them.

…Are you sensing a nautical theme yet? Come Sail Away

And for finishing touches…

Quirky Knobs & Hooks!

Now back to oogling Houzz, Pinterest HouseBeautiful for more inspiration…

I’m getting the itch to try a few new DIY projects, including some of these. I’ll throw them up on the blog when they’re done!

In the meantime…what are your favorite sources for design + decor ideas? Have any ideas for making your living space more like a J. Crew store? Tell us!
