Hello friend! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving holiday. I enjoyed my turkey and some fun with family. But now that the eating is out of the way, it’s time for the shopping to begin. Now we all know that black Friday and cyber Monday are huge shopping days. While I don’t love the crowds or the commotion, I do love a good sale. Let me show you what I am eyeing and purchasing this year.

My Stance on Black Friday and Cyber Monday

What used to be a clearly defined day of sales (both black Friday and cyber Monday) has now turned into basically an entire week of sales. This can be bad or good. What’s bad is that the sales may not be as steep and they may run out of some items. What’s good is that you have ample time to shop. Furthermore, most of these sales are online as well as in store. Therefore you don’t even have to go into a store, score!

So join me in my jammies as I spend the weekend comfortably perusing the online sales and purchasing my wants/needs. To see how I shop during black Friday and cyber Monday sales, check out my strategies from last year.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales: Banana Republic

I will be taking full advantage of the fantastic 50% off that Banana Republic is offering. First on my list is a fun red sweater with ruffle details on the shoulder. This will be perfect for any holiday parties. Of course Banana also has fantastic skirts, including this fringy blush one (also in black!). It’ll be a stunner at a New Year’s Eve party. See my other favorites below.


Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales: Anthropologie

If you know me, you know I love Anthropologie. The whimsy, the boho, the parisian chic… Anthropologie has it all for me. Therefore I always check on their black Friday and cyber Monday sale too. I will not miss out on any discounts they offer. This year they are giving 30% off of everything, yippee! I am looking at some fun skirts for holiday parties.

Besides clothing, Anthropologie has beautiful and unique furniture. Since I am decorating my new home still, I will definitely check out and purchase some items for it. I am particularly interested in this beautiful lucite shelf. It’ll match my bed perfectly!


Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales: Kate Spade

Kate Spade is having 30% off most items (code: givejoy), yay! So if you need a new purse (like this beauty) or pair of shoes, turn to Kate Spade. Also, don’t overlook their home section. I recently decorated my bathroom with Kate Spade. At 30% off, you can have a lot of fun!


Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales: J Crew

Next to Anthropologie, J Crew is my favorite store. While I usually love J Crew’s skirts, right now I am obsessing over their pants. There are two pair of camo pants that I particulary like. One is a wide leg, the other a skinny leg. I’m still debating between the two. I am also loving this tuxedo style chino pant. The tuxedo stripe adds such a fun twist. Lastly, the any day pant looks like the perfect alternative to leggings.

Besides the pants, I am also loving this jacket with plaid ruffles. J crew is always my go-to for cute cardigans and tops. Check out some more favorites below.


So these are the stores I’m going to be visiting (online) during black Friday and cyber Monday. Which ones are you going to be shopping from?
