Happy holidays!!! As we start to wind down after the flurry of holiday festivities (and gear up for the New Year), if you happen to be in the mood for shopping…I’m your girl.
Wardrobe Investment Pieces To Buy On Sale: A Post-Holiday Shopping List
I’ve structured things a little differently this time. Instead of grouping my sales picks by retailer, I’m grouping them by, uh…seemingly random categories. (cringe) I KNOW. But they’re not random, I promise!! The categories represent how I’m actually shopping. The intention is to give better insight into why I’m shopping the things I’m shopping, and maybe get out of shopping ruts.
You with me?? (And if you absolutely hate this, let me know. I’m always open to suggestions.)
I know this is a tough sell in late December…but the sales are so freaking good AND straw bags are basically forever products so your June self will thank you. Heck, your June self will be ecstatic.
One of my very favorite denim brands right now. Their flares (style name: Carla) are basically making my life right now (the only jeans that really do feel fresh and modern) and their skinnies (style name: Karolina) manage to be skinny without looking painted-on. I’m obsessed. Net-a-Porter and Revolve have the best sales, but you’ll have to rummage around to find your size.
Tall Taupe Boots
This is where my head is right now. I really want a pair of tall boots in taupe, but with some major slouch, and a very walkable heel. I plan to wear them with dresses & skirts…and maybe even skinny jeans.
Interesting Black Sweaters
Basically what I wear 99% of the time. Not even going to fight it.
I’ll never be over striped tops (or sweaters). Classics for a reason.
360 cashmere is one of my new discoveries. The cashmere is thick and soft, and they don’t skimp on the sleeve length.
I’m really feeling ivory & white sweaters right now. Such a pretty, fresh update for winter.
Cardigans I Don’t Hate
Well…the name says it all, really.
Cute Sweatshirts (To Wear Year-Round)
Wear them now with jeans and cute snow boots…or on a cool summer night with cut-offs and flipflops.
Cozy Thermal Tops (That Are a Little Sexy, Too)
Basically the only top I feel like wearing in the winter. (Otherwise I’m all sweaters, all day.)
Cool & Unique Day-To-Date-Night Tops
Not to toot my own horn…but tops this good are hard to find in sale sections. YOU ARE WELCOME.
My Fancy Uniform: Faux-Fur & Cami NYC Silk Camis
You likely have a faux-fur by now, but if not…these are my favs. (And keep scrolling — I’m almost always wearing one of these silk camis with it. I layer them over a tee and under a sweater when it’s really cold. See the whole look here.
My All-Time FAVORITE Puffer Coats
I cannot overstate how amazing these coats are. Insanely lightweight (like the coat-check guy is surprised when he picks it up) and insanely warm. I don’t think Lole’s website does these puffers justice — they look better IRL. You can see a bunch of pics of them on, here.
Jeans, On Sale
I’ve gotta keep looking, I think, because the denim selection was a little ‘meh’. The picks below, however, are great. There were just so few of them….
Practical (& Cute) Winter Boots
These are all boots that I own, have tried on, or are seriously considering. They’re also all boots that I would legit wear on the daily.
Completely Random Things (That Didn’t Fit Anywhere Else…But Are Too Good To Miss)
Swimsuits (& Spring Break Dreams)
Another tough sell in December, I think. HOWEVER: the discounts on these verrrry expensive swimsuits are steep. This is easily the best time to buy swim. (And keep scrolling for a few warm-weather favs to pack on your next trip.)
