*This post has been updated with all new CYBER MONDAY codes and sales!! Don’t miss it!

This year I wanted to make a point to feel organized with Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales. Rather than browsing sales where I may find one thing after an hour of scrolling, I focused on the stores that I genuinely love. So, if you’re like me, then this post is for you. If you want a streamlined list of the best of the best sales from around the web, this post is for you. 

So let’s dive right in! I’ve organized every sale by category and then I’ve rounded up all of our gift guides so you can browse your favorite gift ideas and take advantage of items on sale. These are the sales that I’m personally taking advantage of and why I think you should, too!

// T H E   B E S T   F A S H I O N   S A L E S:

J.Crew: 40% off your purchase + an EXTRA 10% OFF (50% TOTAL!!!) with code SHOPFAST. Offer ends at noon on Monday, 11/27.

It sometimes feels like there is a constant sale at J.Crew but for some reason I never buy what I need. This year, I’ve really focused on classic pieces that I know I will use (plus a few holiday purchases, too!). What’s in my cart? This coat, this turtleneck (and this one, too), this fair isle sweater, this flannel shirt, these velvet pants (in pink! because yes velvet pants!), these sparkly earrings and these cute jammies. I bought this shirt, these pants and these shoes for Charlie. I bought this hat and these gloves for Dave. 


Bauble Bar: 35% off EVERYTHING with code CYBER35I love their holiday gift sets! The perfect stocking stuffers.

Anthropologie: 20% off EVERYTHING for 24 hours + FREE SHIPPING on orders over $100!

I don’t know why I get so excited when Anthropologie has a sale. Mostly because their items feel special and unlike a lot of items you see in other stores. Plus, their home decor and accessories are so much fun #iwantitall. Here is what is in my cart: how gorgeous is this fair isle sweater? This dress would be cute with OTK boots. I love this basic long sleeve ruffle tee. This sparkly pullover is so cozy! A chic tuxedo blazer that can be thrown over a holiday dress. These fair isle over the knee socks are SO CUTE. I’m loving these scalloped booties. I want these stockings for our mantel! These plates are so cute for your Christmas table. THE. PERFECT. HOLIDAY. EARRINGS. This cardigan looks so cozy! I would wear these cute floral joggers all the time. We have this mirror in our bedroom (the small size)!


Shopbop: Up to 30% off your order with code MORE17.

You can’t NOT take advantage of a Shopbop sale. All of my favorite brands in one place and the best time to splurge on brands that are usually a reach (like Stuart WeitzmanSalvatore Ferragamo, Theory and Vince). After not wearing normal clothes for MONTHS, I’m kind of splurging on myself a bit. How amazing are these heels? I also snagged this sparkly cocktail ring which I thought would be fun for holiday events. I’m also eyeing this cashmere sweater, this turtleneck sweater, these Sorel boots, a classic black fedora, the perfect red sweater for the holidays, this boho blouse, these booties and this simple bell sleeve sweater. I bought this scarf for my sister and this cashmere cardigan for my mama. This leather weekender bag would make a great gift for men or women!


Club Monaco: Up to 35% off your purchase and an extra 30% off sale with code SHOPMONDAY.
If you’ve been reading for awhile, you know that I love Club Monaco. Their collections are feminine, classic and consistent year after year. The brand is high quality without the CRAZY price tag (I know it still costs a pretty penny but much better than most designer prices). I still wear cashmere sweaters that I’ve owned for 3+ years. Their prints are beautiful and they always use the richest colors, luxurious fabrics and prettiest details. If you’re looking for the perfect party dress I love this, this and this. I bought this pleated skirt and this lace top to wear for our holiday brunch with Santa! I adore this holiday red sweater, this sparkly tulle skirt, I love this beanie and this beanie, this dreamy blush coat, the colors in this floral dress are so pretty, these feminine gloves AND my favorite earrings (the color is a dream and goes with everything). 


Nordstrom: A ton of new markdowns for Cyber Monday + an extra 20% off select sale items!

How cute this this dress for the holidays? Would be perfect for a Christmas brunch or holiday party! I also love these classic black riding boots. These Nike sneakers come in 4 colors #newyeargoals This camel coat would be such a staple for years to come! I think this cozy pink cable sweater is calling my name. I have been eyeing this Marc Jacobs crossbody bag for a couple months! These Levi jeans make your booty look like a million bucks. I think this cashmere sweater looks so cozy!

If you’re shopping for kiddos, they have some amazing deals: Nuna’s Rava convertible car seat is 20% off! The Baby Jogger City Select stroller and City Mini GT is 15% off!


Tuckernuck: 20% off everything and up to 30% off when you spend $1000 or more with code GONUTS.

The perfect shop for all of your preppy friends and family. If you’re looking for some holiday attire I love this emerald green dress, this perfect holiday sweater, or a fun pink and red party stop! They always have the best collection of sparkly earrings! I always find the best gifts for guys like these winter boots, this cute garment bag, a monogrammed weekender bag and this needlepoint belt. 30% off select Patagonia styles! Like Dave’s favorite Better Sweater and a Better Sweater for women, a Women’s Down Jacket, a Men’s Hooded Down Jacket. Honestly, some of our favorite gifts are Patagonia!


White + Warren: 25% off all styles!! Stock up on the cashmere travel wrap for all of your favorite ladies. I’m also loving this cashmere ombre scarf, this cashmere tie cuff cardigan, this cozy cable sweater, this cute metallic crewneck and this cashmere easy sleeve hoodie
