Weekend 12.30


Happy holidays, Gang! I’m still *technically* on vacation, but the sales are so ridiculous that I had to pop on with a few finds. I honestly love shopping this time of year – the pressure is completely off, I usually have a return (or ten, haha) to make, and since the sales are so wild, I almost always find something unexpected. Instead of basics, I find myself looking for fun, statement pieces. It’s inspiring (or maybe just mind-freeing).

I hope you guys are enjoying some quality family time. We’re hunkered down with Mom & her Christmas cookies next to a fire, and the boys are skiing, despite the rain (gahhh). I’m feeling content and lucky, and hope you are, too.

I couldn’t be more grateful for this little community we have here, and for the contributing editors, authors, and staff that make up The Mom Edit. It’s wild that this team of incredibly passionate, creative and kind people are all willing to continue down this path with me. Truly a pinch-me moment. I’m hopeful that we can more fully introduce you guys to our talented, behind-the-scenes team, too. As we say in the Midwest, they’re good people.

Happy New Year, everyone. Wishing you all the best in 2024.

Fun stuff, like this: My patchwork denim dress (by Frame) is freaking 71% off at Saks OFF. I wear it with flat sandals in the summer, and layer it over turtlenecks and tall boots in the fall/winter (that’s the benefit of denim dresses – they can be worn year-round).

More fun stuff: An impossibly cozy, houndstooth lounge set (top, bottom) is so cute and 30% off. I’m also very much into these unisex flannel PJs, and if your boys/guys love UGGs, these slippers are on sale.

OMG: Urban has Mou boots 50% off!!! They’re the slightly shorter version, but that savings is huge. Anyway, click here for olive or click here for gray (the gray says, ‘MOU’ in glitter on the back, if you care).

Fashion girls’ puffer, but make it technical: SAM’s faux-leather puffer is on sale and part of Sak’s promo (take $50 off ever $250 you spend with code WNTR50SF). I adore SAM jackets because they’re wildly technical, but never look like it. So good.

Two unique pieces. Athleta has an additional 30% off already marked-down items, and while my usuals are part of the sale (fleece-lined pants, matching jacket – see ’em on, here), there’s two items worth considering that I kinda had to dig for: one, this momentum top comes in two sparkly colors that are really pretty in person (‘pyrite shine’ or ‘black shine’) and two, these puffer joggers are freaking amazing. I have them in white (purchased last year), and am seriously considering the black for walking the dog.

Naked Cashmere. Currently 50% off site-wide which is great…except my longtime favs are sold out. However, I’m eyeing up this fair isle sweater (size up) or this argyle one (TTS). Either would make an epic apres ski outfit with slouchy boyish jeans OR faux-leather pants. I also recommend Naked’s cashmere bodysuit. I wore it in Park City and Quebec and it’s such a warm and cozy layer, yet looks great as a top, too. I have the small – fit is TTS. The bodysuit was such a hit that I might also give this one a try since it’s not final sale (but still 50% off).

Doen, my heart. Procrastination sometimes pays off, because that pretty little Doen top I’ve been coveting since this summer is – finally – on sale!! Net-a-porter also has it on sale (for a few bucks cheaper, even).

We’ve talked about these before: But my favorite high-heeled Sorels are finally on sale, as are those sweatpant-trousers by Paige, and those Steve Madden boots that look like Loeffler Randall.

The problem with Farm Rio…is that many retailers style these pieces with more Farm Rio. Which is too much!!! I actually think this on sale cardigan-coat could be amazing, but I’d style it with jeans. (Actually, I’d style it exactly like Laura’s first outfit in her genius Jan outfit ideas article). Oh! Here’s another Farm Rio sweater (on sale) that looks almost handmade, and – happily – is styled with jeans. Much better.

Like the cool girls in Europe. Whenever I come across winter outfit ideas from European influencers, they’re always finishing their looks off with a big Acne scarf. I especially love the pretty colors of this one (on sale).

A matching moment. I just realized that J.Crew’s cashmere beanie (on sale) has matching cashmere sweaters! For the ‘serenity’ color, here’s the matching cashmere sweater (also on sale), or for ‘neon berry red’ you have a choice of shrunken cashmere or classic (yup – both on sale). I seriously can’t decide.

Best dressed. This Norma Kamali little black dress has been recommended by basically everyone – it’s so freaking good on, and it’s on sale for around $100. Or, try this mermaid version, also on sale.

Just call me Ironman. I love, love, LOVE my Light Salon LED mask, and it’s currently 20% off at Net-a-Porter!! I swear by this thing (it makes a measurable difference), but the key is to use it on completely clean skin – don’t put ANY products on until after you’ve used it. It’s amazing. This particular one is comfortable to wear, and lays flat for travel.
