Everything I’m wearing is 25% off this weekend! | Sweater: Madewell (wearing a size XS – runs a little short, but I love it that way!) | Jeans: Madewell (wearing a size 26 – runs TTS and I didn’t need to shorten them!)| Loafers: Madewell (Wearing my usual 6.5. They’re the PERFECT loafer.)
Happy Wednesday!! To be honest, I thought I wasn’t going to put this post together until Thursday night/Friday morning, but there are SO MANY early sales this year! Even though it made for a very busy day today, I kind of like this new trend. I think it encourages people to shop tonight and tomorrow morning, and then put their computers away and really be present for the rest of the weekend! That being said, you know more will be added this weekend 😉
Of course, I’ll be checking in and updating this post, so this can be your one stop resource first think in the morning on Black Friday. But in the meantime, you’ll see a SOLID start to the weekend below!
But before we dive in, I sent something out to my email list this morning about the Beautycounter sale. If you’re on that list, make sure you check your inbox (and spam folder)! I might be offering a special little gift… and if you haven’t signed up for my email list yet, you can subscribe here!
And lastly, have you seen my Gift Guides (For Women, For Men, and For the Home) yet? I think they could be REALLY helpful when shopping, since so many of the items I’ve linked in them are (or will go) on sale this weekend. Similarly, a lot of products in my posts about the best winter accessories and what to wear to a winter wedding are on sale, too! Is this not the best shopping weekend EVER?!
Cozy Clothes & Winter Gear
Abercrombie – 50% off entire store + free shipping
I made a big purchase from Abercrombie earlier this Fall, and I’ve been so impressed with everything I got! I have this tie-front top in XS, this fleece in a small, and both this corduroy skirt and off the shoulder sweater in XS (seen in this post!). Here are a few other faves:
Alice & Wonder – 20% off with code ITSLIT
The first reason you should check out Alice & Wonder is because it’s a local Chicago shop and everything is SO CUTE. And the second reason is because you’ll see me on their site while shopping for a plaid scarf or velvet skirt!
Ann Taylor – 40% off everything with code THANKFUL
Anthropologie – 30% off everything
So many cozy sweaters, coats, and gifts!
Cole Haan – 50% off select items/30% off everything else
A great place to get boots this season, but I’m also VERY tempted to pick up these sneakers!
DSW – 20% off everything with code MADHOUSE
If you’re petite, you have to snag these OTK boots (seen here!) before they sell out! They’re the perfect height on me, and I’m only 5’1.5″. This is also a great time to buy some snow boots, sneakers, booties – ALL the shoes!
Gap – 50% off everything
J.Crew – 50% off with code TGIF
J.Crew Factory – 40-50% off with code ADD2Cart
A great way to stock up on basics!
Loft – 40% off with code BEST WEEK
Madewell – 25% off with code DEALWITHIT
I actually just got a bunch of stuff from Madewell that I would HIGHLY recommend! This striped sweater (seen on me here, XS) is crazy soft. Also, LOVE this mockneck sweater (seen on me here, XS). As for shoes, these loafers and these booties are super versatile. And lastly, their curvy petite high waisted jeans are super stretchy and comfy!
Nordstrom – up to 60% off
There’s a reason Nordstrom is one of my favorite stores! The softest plaid shirt I own is on sale right now, along with my short Hunter Boots (great for petite gals who don’t want the full tall ones!). I also noticed these jeans during the Anniversary Sale over the summer, and now I’m thinkin about snagging them! Other notable finds: Faux Fur Down Coat, Stuart Weiztman Boots, and Commando undies (hey we all need underwear, right?!).
Old Navy – 50% off everything
Adam just got 2 of these sweaters for $30! Such a steal!
Saks Off Fifth – up to 85% off
My sister-in-law alerted me about this sale, and I’m so glad she did because it’s SO GOOD. They have a full size run of my favorite J Brand Alana Jeans (the perfect length for petites!), and an unreal selection of shoes. These velvet booties are definitely on my wishlist!
Shopbop – up to 25% off with code MORE18
This sale is tiered, so you get 15% off orders of $200+, 20% off orders of $500+, and 25% off orders of $800+.
Alo Yoga – markdowns + 30% off full price items
My FAVORITE cropped yoga sweatshirt is on sale (seen here)! It’s incredibly soft, and perfect for throwing over your sports bra with high waisted pants after a hot yoga class. It also comes in solid colors, too!
Athleta – 20% off with code BLISS
I thought there were just a few markdowns, but now the WHOLE SITE is 20% off! If you only buy one thing, snag these joggers! They are unbelievably soft and comfy. I have a size small and they’re my favorites!
Club Pilates – 30% off your first month + 15% off retail Friday/Saturday
Both North Center and Lincoln Park locations are also offering 3 classes for $69 when you mention Lake Shore Lady!
Outdoor Voices – up to 40% off select styles
You might remember these pants from Instagram, this post, and probably some fitness recaps. But if you’ve been following a while, this post featuring their pink top and pink leggings is probably a little bit more memorable! I find their leggings to run a little small (I have them in size small and they’re snug), and they are a lot thicker than other leggings I have. Some people don’t like that, especially for hot yoga – but I think they’re great when you want to feel a little bit more covered up… cough at the gym cough 😉
Spiritual Gangster – 40% off sitewide
Home, Kitchen, and Electronics
