Holiday Weekend Picks

Ahhh, the holiday season is finally upon us. I feel safe to admit that I find it very hard to exercise self-control this time of year – but I’m not just talking about the abundance of delicious treats and sweets! That’s right, I’m talking sales.

There are few things I love more than good deals on great clothes. Most of my favorite and most-shopped stores tend to have decent prices year round. However, nothing, and I mean nothing, compares to the sales around the holidays. With Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and additional clearance upon us, it’s hard to resist these sweet steals!


J.Crew has a way of bringing comfort and class to the same cocktail party. Right now at J.Crew, you can expect huge savings and free shipping until Monday. I adore the drawstring sleeves on this V-Neck Sweater, as well as this super versatile sweater-blazer.


Nordstrom is basically your one-stop shop for all things fashion, but I’ve always been partial to them for their shoe collection.

KJP has just recently released a whole new line of women’s apparel, including the most darling plaid skirts and dresses. There’s something about a plaid skirt that makes me feel like I’m transported to simpler times, back when all the holiday pies were homemade, and conversation was uninterrupted by text messages and televisions.


I particularly love this Ice Skate Date skirt, styled wonderfully by both Belle of the Ball and Sarah Vickers herself! I also love this Gilmore Cabin Hideaway dress. Both of those would look great topped by this stripped sweater, finished off with some trusty winter boots.

J.Crew Factory

Last but certainly not least in my book is J.Crew Factory, the place with just as much panache as J.Crew for a fraction of the price. I’m swooning for this crimson blouse and quilted jacket! But I have to say that this buffalo check wool mini skirt has taken the cake for me. (AKA, it’s already shipped and on its way to its proud new owner).
