Okay, girls. This is it. Today is the day. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family and took time to thank God for all of your blessings! I had the best time with Chris’s extended family at the ranch, and I’m just soaking up family time!
But now? Well, now it’s Black Friday. And it’s time to SHOP OUR FACES OFF. And I have a SUPER COMPREHENSIVE post. We need to stock up on Christmas gifts, but we also need to get something for ourselves…because we deserve it. #yesmamwedo
I have some steps for you to follow to ensure Black Friday success: 1) GET SERIOUS. 2) Remember to breathe. 3) Repeat after me: It’s not about spending money, it’s about SAVING money. Repeat it like it’s a mantra. All of the ladies said “Amen”, and all of the husbands rolled their eyes….BUT WE DIDN’T EVEN NOTICE OR CARE BECAUSE THE DEALS ARE INCREDIBLE.
Anyhoo, thanks for coming by and shopping with me. Shopping is SO MUCH MORE FUN with girlfriends, and I hope that you’ll see I’ve made Black Friday easy to navigate. Let’s! Get! Started!
I think it’s only right that we kick today off at my shopping mecca. That’s right, we are starting off at Nordstrom ladies. EVERYTHING THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY ON SALE IS NOW AN ADDITIONAL 20% OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!! No code needed. WHOAH. #mycreditcardjustflewoutofmywallet
Click HERE to shop the entire Nordstrom site. There’s lots on regular ol’ sale but there’s also A TON of items that are showing EXTRA SAVINGS! It’s totally worth clicking over and just doing some browsing on your own. TIP: Use the categories they break items up into to help you efficiently navigate through the sale. Or if you are looking for a particular item, just type that into the search bar on the upper right hand corner.
Both of these pairs of booties are on SUPER SALE!!!! (Anything that’s on sale…and then on sale again..will from this point be referred to as being on SUPER SALE.)
I own the Lucky booties, and I love the Vince Camuto booties in grey. Both are on SUPER SALE, and both are super comfy! The lucky booties (on the right) come in 3 colors and are ON SALE for $77.51. CRAZY!
My MUST HAVE shirt is on SUPER SALE! We are talking 46% OFF! I currently own this shirt in black, olive, and rhododendron. I love the new colors arona (a soft mint green) and quail (a light lavendar). I’m wearing a small in the top, and it’s long enough for leggings. If you aren’t planning on wearing the top with leggings, I would suggest sizing down 1 size.
Here are just some of the color choices! Click on what you are interested in:
I could go on AND ON AND ON about this sweater (now on SUPER SALE!). So I will. First of all, the cowl neck is perfection. It’s big, but not overwhelming, and the neck doesn’t make me claustrophobic (like some turtlenecks do). The sweater is so soft (I absolutely hate sweaters that are itchy!), and it kind of feels a bit cashmere-ish! The fit is great (it’s kind of fitted, but not clingy), and it drapes so nicely because it’s not bulky at all. I’m wearing the regular small (at almost 5’4″), so I think it’s true to size. It also comes in petite for you shorter gals (or for those that only want to wear with jeans). It maybe runs a bit big, so if you are just going to wear with jeans and not leggings, I might consider sizing down a size. I definitely wanted the room and the length that the regular small provided since I knew I would be wearing it with leggings.
Click HERE for these WONDERFUL earrings. They are now on SUPER SALE for $7.96. That’s just stupid!!! HELLO, STOCKING STUFFERS!!!! HELLO, TEACHER GIFTS! HELLO, 8 pairs of new earrings for yourself. 😉
And remember the printable you can use for the earrings that’s PERFECT for gift giving. Click HERE and scroll down the post for the printable.
THIS coat. It’s on SUPER SALE for $30.31. FOR A COAT. FOR A DARLING COAT. Now, this coat is not for everybody, because it runs really small. On advice from some readers that already had the coat, I ordered up 2 sizes and got a large. I was skeptical, but I absolutely couldn’t have gone any smaller. Look at the detailing on the sleeves! Look at the collar! I am sooooo happy with this coat.
THIS dress is now on SUPER SALE for $19.91! STOP IT! It comes in a ton of colors, AND IT HAS POCKETS. I’m wearing a small, so I think it’s true to size. I shared the striped one during the anniversary sale, and I picked up this pretty wine color last week (it’s called “dark raisin”…but I think “wine” sounds so much nicer). ???? I like it by itself, but I think this one would also look great with a long boyfriend cardigan. AND THE NECKLACE IS 40% OFF!!!!
I’m afraid these might have sold out after I posted them on facebook yesterday…but just in case there are some left….click HERE for blardigans (and a couple of other Barefoot Dreams items) on sale!

Okay, girls. THIS IS A GOOD ONE! This sweater dress has great reviews and I fell in love with it the second it arrived. It also comes in grey, red, and black and comes in regular, petite, and tall! I’m wearing a small petite. I often wear petites in dressing, so this was true to size for me. The small does have some room in it, but I don’t like a fitted sweater dress. If you do, consider sizing down 1 size.
This is one of those items that you just throw on and look amazing! I love the detail of the pleats at the shoulders and a tiny little button on the cuff of the sleeve. The dress, the necklace, the leggings, and some similar boots are ALL ON SALE!!!
Get The Look For Yourself Here:
This chambray collared tunic has FANTASTIC reviews. I put it on right out of the box, so it needed an iron on the crease mark from where it had been folded, but I loved this top. I’m wearing a small, and at almost 5’4″ it was just long enough for me to wear with leggings. If you are taller or if you have a longer torso, you might want to consider sizing up if you plan on wearing it with leggings. I forgot to take a picture of the back, but it has pretty pleats coming from the shoulders.
Get The Look For Yourself Here:
This plaid top is in a great classic green, navy, and black plaid. It has great reviews. I’m wearing a small, so it’s true to size. I loved it paired with my favorite black jeans (that now come in petite!) and brown booties.
THIS SWEATER has EXCELLENT reviews. I love the navy with grey jeans, but it will also look great with regular old blue jeans as well as my khaki cords.
This next sweater is great with jeans, but it’s definitely nice enough to pair with a pair of classic black slacks and heels. You could even wear it to a more casual holiday party because the pleated back is gorgeous!
