Black Friday Guide (+ My Favorite Purchases)!

Happy Friday! Can’t believe Thanksgiving has come and gone already, but hope it was a great one for you! Now that today is one of my favorite times of the year, I thought I’d break down some of my favorite sales of the year (including a guide of my favorite items that I either have or am coveting), that way your shopping experience is made easier. Rather than listing every entire sale out there, I figured I’d just include some of my favorites and the places where I’ll be shopping. I mean, this day is already overwhelming enough as it is. I’m going shopping later on, so will be updating this (and my Black Friday Shop page) throughout the day. Let’s get started!

Nordstrom – Okay. Obviously this is stop number one. My favorite retailer is marking down tons of items, but there’s also 40% off fan-favorites such as Free People, Topshop, UGG Australia and more (PLUS an extra 20% off select sale items!). Don’t forget they’ll be price matching, as well!

Amazon – Most of the sales are on their own products, but major deals will be on technology products, such as the Amazon Echo Dot ($30) and the Amazon Fire Stick (which I’m obsessed with for $24!).

J.Crew – J. Crew has an entire section called “500 items under $50,” that are totally drool-worthy and will make excellent gifts, but they’re also offering 40% off your entire purchase + free shipping.

Old Navy – Old Navy is currently offering 50% off your entire purchase, which makes now the perfect time to stock up on all those cozy basics.

LOFT – Another favorite store of mine is LOFT, and they’re offering 50% off your purchase, and even debuted a Black Friday collection (Ann Taylor is offering the same thing). I’m going to scoop up ALL of the things!

Macy’s – Last but not least, Macy’s. My mom and I went there last night, and they have so many amazing deals. I’m going to purchase these Michael Kors mules I’ve been eyeing, but also scooped up these gorgeous tassel earrings for less than $8!

You can shop my favorite picks below. The best part is that each image in the collage is shoppable, so just click the photo! The only exceptions are the black sherpa sweatshirt that’s on sale for only $13 (which you can purchase here), and the silver tassels earrings on sale for $8 (which you can purchase here).
