It’s the most…wonderful time…of the year! Or…something like that. This year has been a trial for sure, but one good thing to come out of it? The Black Friday Sales are looking GOOD!
Here’s everything that I’ve ever wanted this year and beyond. Well, obviously not everything or there’d be a Parisian get-away tucked in this list somewhere — but this list is pretty close.
Cute, Cozy & Fun: A Black Friday Shopping List
Multiple loungewear sets, Athleta joggers, soft colorful blankets, UGG slippers (of course), golden shimmery eyeshadow palettes, and even an indoor garden — just a few of my favorite things right now.
1/ Mariah Ribbed Knit Maxi Dress By Saturday/Sunday
At the top of my list is this bestselling ribbed knit maxi dress from Anthro that I’ve been wanting for FOREVER. It’s an ideal casual/comfy look that works at home as loungewear or as a cute holiday look when paired with sneakers or booties. The biggest problem I’m having is which color to get because they are all so good.
2/ Athleta’s Venice Velvet Striped Joggers
These Athleta joggers have also been at the top of my ’to buy’ list for a while now. Honestly, I want them in both colors because I think they are the perfect pair of joggers for the holiday season (and beyond) bc they can easily be dressed up or paired down and as we all know, Athleta joggers are pretty much the epitome of ultimate comfort.
3/ Bright Stripe Throw Blanket By Anthropologie
I feel like this 5-star rated soft throw blanket from Anthropologie was MADE for me. I love the bright, joyful colors so much. It will go perfectly with my obnoxiously bright pink and red retro holiday decor this year.
4/ UGG Genuine Shearling Slipper
UGG slippers are always a staple on my Black Friday wish list — and usually it’s a great time to find a cute pair on sale.
5/ SLIP Pure Silk Adult Pleated Face Covering
If anyone else is dealing with skin breakouts from their masks like me, this is the perfect solution. This uber luxe and soft pure silk mask is the perfect solution and comes in several gorgeous colors.
6/ Zella Amazing Cozy Wrap Jacket
This super-soft and cozy wrap jacket by Zella is the perfect lounging cardigan for around the house, as well as with jeans and sneakers. Reviewers say it is amazingly warm but runs large!
7/ Britt Jogger Set
One thing I’ve learned during this year of COVID is that you can never have too many lounge sets! This best-selling, costumer favorite Jogger set from Anthropologie is the perfect, stylish everyday set that you can be worn together or separately. It’s a fan favorite for a good reason — it’s high-quality, and super-soft.
8/ Dr. Marten’s ‘Jadon’ Boot
I am so happy that Doc Martens are back in style because I’m obsessed! The dilemma I’m having = which ones to get?? I’m leaning towards these Jadon platform booties in white, but I also really love the Sinclair Croc embossed version too.
9/ ALLSAINT Nilo Nylon Backpack
So I have wanted this ALLSAINTS bag for seriously about 10 years but I’ve never pulled the trigger. I love my Julian backpack, but I really want this one because it’s much roomier, and and I could carry my sketchbook in it, which is a major plus. It’s 30% off right now at Nordstrom.
10/ Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum
This is seriously the best anti-aging serum EVER. I can’t sing its praises enough. I’ve tried so many serums over the years, and this is the only one that doesn’t irritate my sensitive, blemish-prone skin. Unlike a lot of other serums I’ve tried, it doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky or oily. It only takes one application to see the instant results, leaving skin looking brighter, feeling smoother and with diminishing dark spots.
11/ Polaroid Everything Box Set
I’ve always been a sucker for Polaroid instant cameras. I love the artistic, vintage vibe of the photos, and the instant gratification and endless fun they offer. This Polaroid Everything Box Set from Nordstrom gets you started with everything you need in one kit, and the Holidays is the perfect time to make lasting Polaroid memories.
12/ Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette
Urban Decay’s Naked Eyeshadow Palettes are a make-up bag beauty essential. This insanely gorgeous Honey palette is golden perfection. I’m a sucker for highly pigmented, warm, metallic eyeshadows – I love a good glow and these can also double as a highlighter, or as a shimmery top layer to your lipstick.
13/ SKIMS Cozy Knit Tank and Shorts
I absolutely ADORE this SKIMS cozy knit short and tank set (sold separately). I’m so obsessed! Because as much as I love sweatpants and joggers, I’m a hot sleeper and can’t stand wearing long pants to bed, or I end up a sweaty mess. So these shorts are perfect for me because they are super-cute, and cozy and perfectly breathable.
14/ Click & Grow: Smart Garden 3 Self-Watering Indoor Garden
This Self-Watering Indoor Garden is the perfect hobby to help me beat the winter blues this year. The kit comes with everything you need to get started, including NASA-researched propriety soil mix, three basil starter pods, built-in water reservoir, and an LED lamp arm — while using small oxygen pockets to insure that the plants can breathe.
15/ Clare V. for Anthropologie Maisonette Tray
I freaking LOVE everything from Clare V.’s Anthropologie home goods collection — it’s all so bright and joyful, and it’s gotten great ratings. These adorable maisonette trays will make great stocking stuffers. I’m also obsessed with their equally amazing stoneware, including this retro pink and red ‘lips’ maisonette mug and these dessert plates.
16/ Derriere Mug
