Below are my top picks… This leather iPhone 6 case…with a gold monogram. Planning to order one for myself! This striped shirtdress—perfect for warm summer days, especially for those of you who are still nursing your little babes like I am. This pretty white quilted cap, for days when humidity makes hair look nuts. This funky gold ring, which I recently bought for myself. It’s like art on your finger—both bold and minimalist. This lightweight popover for warm summer days when you’re not feeling a tank top. This tassel necklace, which (surprise, surprise) I also own. This is how I style mine.

I feel like they can be hit or miss, but right now they are a major hit in my book. I went out on Friday and picked up a few things that I love, and on Saturday I went back for a little price adjustment because they are now offering 40% off all full-priced items, and an extra 70% off sale items. Yessssss. Below are the 5 things I got for myself, and then further down are some of my other favorite things you can grab at a major discount right now. Happy shopping! Striped Long Pencil Skirt // Emphasizes curves in the best way. Super soft and comfy while also being a little sexy. I plan to wear it with a simple tank tucked in and flat sandals. Fluid Sleeveless Jumpsuit // My favorite of all of the pieces I got! So comfortable and ideal for breastfeeding mamas, as the top part unbuttons. I really love the tie waist, which makes it feminine. Geo Eyelet Sweatshirt // Structured yet stretchy, this top has a cropped and boxy fit that’s ideal for pairing with high-waisted jeans or skirts. Knit Tube Skirt // […]]]> 3 SALE ALERT: Up to 75% Off Original Prices at J.Crew Wed, 15 Apr 2015 20:34:48 +0000 Yep, you read that right.

We’re keeping it very low key—spending time with my parents—who are SO helpful with Jack—and enjoying lots of good food and rest. I’m feeling extra thankful this year, perhaps due to my new mama hormones making me gushy. Thankful to be married to my best friend and to have a healthy, happy baby boy. Thankful for chilly fall mornings and hot coffee. Thankful for the inspiring, intelligent and supportive community of women in my life. And of course, YOU (!!!)—what a wonderful community of readers you are. You’re the best. Okay, okay—enough of that. Once the eating is done, it’s time to shop. Am I right? While I’m sure going out on Black Friday is fun in its own way, it totally stresses me out—so I love to take advantage of the online sales and shop in my pajamas instead. This year I’m hoping to snag a new Nespresso machine, some clothes for Jack, and perhaps a thing or two for my closet. Below are the Black Friday sales from my favorite spots (most of which have started early!)… ANN TAYLOR 50% off entire purchase with code THANKS through 11/30 GAP 50% […]]]> 0
