Coat: Black Quilted Barbour Beadnell (runs pretty TTS, I’m wearing a 2 because I like my jackets fitted but would have done a 4 if I wanted it looser to be more comfy with a lot of layers.) Velvet leggings: Spanx (on sale!! Come in more colors and run TTS. They’re my favorite leggings EVER–I’m actually wearing them now, haha!), Sweater: J.Crew (true to size, but runs a little cropped, so if you’re in-between, maybe size up!) Boots: Hunter–quite a few styles are marked down at Nordstrom through today and my cableknit Hunter socks are 25% off! Scarf: Barbour (20% off at Tuckernuck for the rest of today! UPDATE: FYI Tuckernuck seems to be having issues with their site again, so give it a few minutes or so and check back again later if you’re getting an error!)
Happy CYBER MONDAY!
WHEW. I’m kind of excited for this marathon of an online shopping spree to come to an end, but also sad at the same time. Can’t everything always be like 50% off!? We had the nicest holiday long weekend, with a few days spent up at the lake, a fun visit with my mom in town, and a very productive weekend cleaning and organizing the house! And, of course, some shopping–duh. We shot these photos when we took a walk at sunset and it was so beautiful.
Have you bought anything good yet for Cyber Week? I have! I’m continuing to update this post as we speak, but for the sake of time (and so you can maximize your deals!) I wanted to share what I’ve purchased and the handful of what I believe to be the best deals for Cyber Monday. I know, I know, I said I would just be updating my Cyber Week sale guide post (which you can still see right here! Lot’s of gift ideas in there too and a list of everything I own on sale!) but honestly, I just got so overwhelmed it felt better to have a clean slate, haha!
Like my last post, you can shop this post several different ways:
1. First, if you’re curious, you can see what I personally bought for Cyber Monday
2. You can scroll down to see my list of favorite sales
3. You can shop by photo–I’ve included photos of my favorite items (that I own personally) on sale so you can see better what they look like in person/how I styled them!
4. You can shop by gift guide/gift ideas–I’m continuously adding to this based off your feedback, so if you have specific gift ideas you’d like to see, just ask!
So, let’s jump in, yeah?!
First up, here’s what I bought so far for Cyber Monday and my favorite deals per retailer! :
J.Crew : 40% off with code: SHOPFAST PLUS 10% off until Midnight!
THE 10% DISCOUNT IS BACK!! Get 50% off like ALL of J.Crew.com!! Here’s what I bought today:
Black striped tissue turtleneck: $17 YES, I KNOW. I own SO MANY of these, and I even own a striped one, but I don’t own the INVERSE stripe one. Hehe. If you don’t own one of these already, there is no excuse not to buy one or several, because they’re currently 50% off which puts them at $17. Nordstrom also carries them and price matches J.Crew’s 40% off (but not the extra 10% so only buy them here after 12pm EST when the extra J.Crew discount expires.)
Black lace top with pleats: $52 If you’re like me and are trying to add to your “pretty tops that my husband won’t think look like grandma clothes” collection, you’ll definitely want to snatch up this top. It’s feminine and sexy without being over the top, and will be perfect for parties, dinner dates, and more! You can totally wear it for work with a cami underneath, too!
Velvet ruffle camisole: $36 You know I love a good camisole (and my favorite one sold out! I’m SO SAD!) but this velvet version is just as good and I love the bright red color! So festive!
Tartan Scarf: $26 I’m obsessed with the white tartan pattern and have been looking for a scarf like this everywhere! I’m so glad this was on sale. They have two other beautiful tartan patterns too!
Tartan Hair Bow: $8 Sorry but, how could I not!? This will be SO cute with a party dress or a sweater and jeans! It’s also a great way to make your ponytail look like you purposefully planned it, rather than were just running late and didn’t have time to do your hair, haha!
Pom Pom Beanie: $19.75: This beanie is SO darn cute and comes in lot’s of colors, but I opted for the festive red with the faux fur pom!
Classic Camel Blazer: I’ve been eying this blazer for such a long time and was waiting for it to go on sale! I was so excited to finally snatch it up!
Nordstrom: Additional 20% off select items!
Nordstrom has marked down some new items and added an additional 20% off others! (Meaning a lot of items are discounted by more than half!) Here’s what I picked up at my #1 favorite retailer:
Leith Shawl Collar Cardigan: $37 (52% off!) I’m so excited about this cozy cardigan–a few of my friends have it and can’t say enough good things. I got it in the prettiest burgundy wine hue that will be perfect for winter. Reviews say it runs big, so size down.
B.P. Plaid Scarf $12.86: I can never resist a great plaid scarf, and the price on this one was just too good!!
Off the shoulder tunic sweater: $42 I’m so excited about this sweater–it’s so pretty and comes in several great colors! I went with the burnt orange hue that is my latest favorite for winter!
Velvet leggings: $78 I already own these but they JUST went on sale for 20% off (hooray!!) and I purchased another pair as a gift for somebody–lucky themmmm 😉
Ann Taylor: 50% off EVERYTHING with code BESTMONDAY
I have been loving so much of Ann Taylor’s selection lately. Right now everything on the site is half off, so if you’ve been eyeing something, grab it now before it sells out! I picked up two things from AT this morning:
Leopard Velvet Bow Heels: $69 I’ve had my eye on these since the second they came out, and I hope they don’t disappoint! They are SO cute and the heel is low, so you can wear them everywhere–with jeans during the day, with a pencil skirt for work, or with your favorite party dress for a holiday party!
Grey bow sleeve sweater: $44 Another sweater from AT I’d been eyeing for awhile. I’m so glad I finally pulled the trigger!
Levi’s 40% off sitewide!
I almost forgot, I also ordered two pairs of Levi’s! They’re offering 40% off site-wide. My favorite pairs are the 721 jeans (I own two pair already) but I have been wanting the “rough day” wash for awhile, so I ordered those (apparently they run smaller than most pairs, so I sized up!) and I also got the 501 Skinny Jeans in “Supercharger” so I’m excited to try those out as well!
If you’re looking for guys jeans, Neal pretty much wears Levis exclusively-he has both the 511 and 512–the latter is skinnier in the legs! A note on fit: He has a small waist and pretty muscular thighs in comparison to his waist size, so he has trouble with most skinnier cut jeans out there, but the 512’s are perfect! Both pairs run TTS in his experience.
Plus, a couple more noteworthy sales…
Baublebar: 35% off everything. Use code CYBER35!
J.Crew Factory: 60% off everything! Use code CYBER
Tuckernuck: 20% off everything, 25% off orders of $500, 30% off orders of $1000. Use code GONUTS
LOFT: 50% off everything + Free Shipping. Use code CLICK
T3 (My curling wand!) 25% off with code MONDAY17
I have the “whirl” curling iron. It comes in a set but you can buy them separately as well! I most often use the 1″ straight barrel which you can buy individually with the base! I got Kelly hooked on it too! She says nothing has ever curled her hair so well (she has fine hair and it NEVER stays curled) and it holds better than any other curling iron! I also have their featherweight hair dryer that I absolutely love. It weighs practically nothing and dries your hair so fast!
Outdoor Voices: Up to 50% off sale styles for women and men
Now for a few of my favorite on-sale highlights:
Barbour Tartan Blanket Scarf: $39 and 20% off!
This scarf, admittedly, is Neals–haha! I just purchased it recently but I steal it ALL THE TIME. It’s seriously the best scarf–(comes in two colors too!) it’s a blanket scarf but it isn’t bulk like most of them, and you can wear it as a regular scarf or a wrap! (It’s really cute if you belt it, too!)
Obviously, it also happens to be Neal’s favorite scarf as well, so if you’re looking for a great gift for guys OR girls, this would be a great bet. It’s 20% off right now at Tuckernuck! Tuckernuck is one of my favorite places to find cute scarves, too–they have a great selection of Barbour in particular.
UPDATE: FYI Tuckernuck seems to be having some issues with their site again, so give it a few minutes or so and check back again later if you’re getting an error!
Hunter Boots & Welly Socks: 25-40% off!
Quite a few pairs of Hunters are on sale right now at Nordstrom, including the Packable Original Tours! (FULLY stocked, too!!) The packable pair is thinner than the originals, so you can lay them flat or roll them and pack them more easily!) I have the Original Tour boots, but I really love the refined rain boot too. (I kind of wish those had existed when I purchased mine a long time ago! They’re a bit more slim and the bottoms are sleeker than the regular wellies!)
I just recently bought my first pair of Hunter boot socks and I don’t know what I was doing before. I love them so much, I have the cableknit version you can see here, but so many of the liners are marked down at Nordstrom, ranging from $29-$37! These make excellent gifts as well.
SPANX Velvet Leggings: 20% off!
My all-time favorite leggings (I’m wearing them as we speak, they feel like pajamas!) I also wore them to dinner last night. I love that you can dress them up or dress them down–I wear them with pretty much anything you’d wear normal leggings with, but they’re more versatile because they can easily be paired with heels to be fancy, too! They come in two more colors–a really pretty super dark navy, and a charcoal!
More Sale Picks + Gift Ideas:
For yourself, sister, or mom:
Spanx Faux Leather Leggings: Everyone’s favorite faux leather leggings just got marked down as well! If you’ve been looking for a pair, definitely hop on these before they sell out!
Sorel Tofino boots are now 25% off! These are must-haves for anyone living in a snowy climate, and Sorels are always a very in-demand item on everyone’s wish list! I rarely see this version marked down.
Oribe Cult Classics Gift Set: A $72 value for $55–this travel set includes ALL my favorite haircare products. (They’re SOOOO good.)
Ray Ban Sunnies are still 20% off!! This is both my favorite brand AND Neal’s favorite brand! They would make the perfect gift for your sister–I purchased this pair this weekend, and my mirrored folding rose gold sunnies are always the BIGGEST hit, and they’re 20% off!
My favorite all-purpose tote bag: This tote makes the BEST gift for a very special person in your life and is 25% off. I’ve never met anyone who owned this bag and told me it WASN’T their favorite bag that they owned.
Cashmere wrap/topper: 20% off right now at Tuckernuck! This would be a HIT for any mom! Plus, it’s really versatile because you can wear it as a wrap with a cocktail dress OR wear it casually around a button down and jeans! Comes in several colors.
Best boots for mom: Blondo is a really awesome boot brand, especially for moms (my mom is like the most practical person ever–shoes have to be comfortable and durable through rain and snow) They have several pairs on sale now and since almost all their shoes are super comfy AND waterproof, it’s a win-win. These riding boots in particular caught my mom’s eye–they’ve got a stretchy panel in them so they really fit your calf well (plus, waterproof). She really loved this pair of ankle booties, too! (Also waterproof!)
Baublebar has the CUTEST little gift sets with adorable earrings and they’re all 35% off. I love this one especially with one pair of black and one pair of gold statement earrings. They also have a ton of jewelry you can personalize, which would make for really cute gifts! (What if you got one for you, your sister(s) and mom? So special!)
This cashmere crewneck sweater is the best wardrobe staple (and so soft) and is something your mom or sister can get a ton of wear out of! (Plus, they don’t have to know it only cost you $58!!) 😂
Eberjay PJ’s always make the BEST gifts and they are the most luxurious, soft pajamas you’ll ever find! All Eberjay is part of the Shopbop sale!
I’ve never met a woman who didn’t love a great faux fur throw–this one is on sale for $39 and would make an especially great gift for a sister or friend who just graduated or moved into their own place!
This $29 candle making kit would please any crafty, DIY-loving mom!
For beauty junkies, the infamous GlowPro microneedling tool is now 20% off! Also, the Beachwaver rotating curling iron is also marked down! (It’s the curling iron I used to have and LOVED before it blew up when I was in London. RIP.) I have the “whirl” curling iron now, which is also marked down! It comes in a set but you can also buy them separately as well if you only want one barrel! I most often use the 1″ straight barrel which you can buy individually with the base! There are a lot of awesome beauty gift sets that are marked down at Nordstrom, so definitely peruse that if you’re buying for any beauty lovers!
This long cashmere drape cardigan has Mom’s name written all over it!
For significant other, brother, or dad:
Personalized wallet bottle opener: The coolest bottle opener because it’s the size and thickness of a credit card, so it fits in his wallet! You can engrave this with his initials and give it to him alongside a couple six packs of his favorite beer. (Especially great for new boyfriends, brothers, or dads!)
Turtleneck sweater: Neal is jumping on my turtleneck bandwagon and loves his new turtleneck sweater. This one is similar and on sale for $42! They have black and grey!
Ancestry DNA Kit: for your history obsessed dad–it’s on MAJOR sale on Amazon!
Men’s long-sleeve henleys: Neal LOVES henley tees and these from Nordstrom just got marked down even more! They come in several colors and will make great gifts!
Sonos speakers: If you’re looking to get your guy a big-ticket item, he will go NUTS over this Sonos Sound Bar ($100 off right now). We have it in our living room and I think it might be Neal’s favorite thing (besides me. Maybe even more than me?!) We also have the smaller speaker in our bedroom/bathroom, which is 10% off and $174. The sound is really incredible, even I notice a difference. The Google Home speaker is also 35% off!
Barbour Coat: You guys have been loving Neal’s Barbour coat this weekend–he has the black Tinford jacket (36% off! Sizing: runs TTS but the sleeves run long, which is OK because you can roll them!) but it’s selling out quickly, so if you don’t see your guy’s size, I’d recommend looking at the Canterdale (40% off!) which is also a really great jacket and available in more sizes!
Wool blend coat: If your guy needs a nice coat to wear for more formal occasions, this one is only $127!
Ray Bans are still marked down at Nordstrom! This NEVER happens–classic aviators and wayfarers never disappoint when it comes to awesome gifts for your boyfriend/husband/brother or dad! Neal got this pair of aviators which is a nice mix-up from the usual frames, and would make a great gift for stylish husbands/boyfriends/brothers!
North Face Jacket: This super nice PrimaLoft jacket just got marked down! (Especially great for Dad!)
A Vintage-inspired watch: Neal says that “vintage-inspired watches are having a moment.” Timex watches are awesome and there are a bunch on sale–he loves this one (on sale for $47!) and this one (on sale for $65!) This Jack Mason watch for $88 is also really cool.
Speaking of watches, if your guy (or brother, or dad) is into watches, a personalized watch box (25% off with code FRIENDS) would make an amazing gift! With the discount, that comes out to around $80 (if I’ve done my math correctly? Haha!)
The Vancouver Slipper: I also just ordered these slippers (because Neal’s previous “slippers” were old ratty Adidas sandals from college) and they are so comfortable and only $39!
Nice mens skincare products: Neal loves Clinique’s for Men line, and this gift set is marked down, if you’re looking for some discounts on great skincare products for your guy!
Gift ideas under $30
