The Best Sales for Black Friday 2017

Brittany Trautman Best Sales Black Friday 2017

I’m back… back again ๐Ÿ˜‰ Even though I posted on Tuesday, I still wanted to get my normal Thursday post up just in time for all of the Black Friday sales! Did anyone else notice that this year a lot of brands started having pre-black Friday sales? This week a bunch of brands had great sales and I loved every second of it ๐Ÿ™‚ I rounded up the best (and my fav) online sales to share with y’all! I myself am a shop-a-holic, but when it comes to Black Friday, I somehow always convince myself I need everything because it’s on sale! Does anyone else do that?? In years past, I have waited in long lines in the freezing cold but this past year, I have been doing most of my shopping online so I don’t even mess with that anymore and it’s AWESOME! I mean, who doesn’t want to skip the lines, snuggle up on the couch, watch a Christmas movie, and do some online shopping?!

Old Navy’s Black FriYAY 50% off sale (ends 11/24)

1. High-Rise Rockstar Skinny Jeans– I looooove these jeans because they’re super stretchy and the high-rise fit sucks everything in ๐Ÿ˜‰ With the discount, they’re only $17.49!

2.Blush Vest– I’m a sucker for vests and I love pairing them with absolutely anything in the colder months. This one in blush is super cute and on trend right now. It also comes in a camo print. This vest is only $15 (wooohoooo!)

3.Velvet Ruffle Cami– This cami comes in 3 colors and the velvet is another hot trend right now. This would look perfect paired with a cardigan or even a leather jacket. It’s definitely a closet staple that can be worn a million ways. It’s only $12.50!

Express 50% off Everything Sale + Free Shipping (ends 11/25)

4. Ribbon Tie Cold Shoulder Sweater– You guys know I love bows/ dainty details and I haven’t seen any sweaters like this anywhere else! I love the mix of the bows on the shoulders with the cold shoulder detail. This sweater is $24.95

5. Plaid Wrap Tie Mini Skirt– I am intrigued by the new plaid trend that we’ve been seeing this year and this skirt makes me want to try it! I love the asymmetrical front and the wrap detail. I think this would be adorable for Christmas paired with a black sweater and OTK boots. This skirt is $24.95

6. Chenille Leggings– I definitely NEED these! Chenille has become popular this year and I’m loving it just as much as everyone else ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s the softest, coziest material known to man kind, lol. So when I heard people raving about these chenille leggings, I knew I had to add them to my wishlist. They’re $29.95 which may seem a bit pricey for leggings, but these are LIQUID GOLD PEOPLE!

Loft Black Fri-Yay Collection (ends 11/23) // Use code ‘GIFTITUP’ for 40% off

7. Tie Cuff Sweater– Another item with bows, what can I say, I’m a girly girl, lol. I love the mix of the classic black and white and how the bows and the cuffs add flare to a basic sweater. This sweater is $29.70

8. Velvet Slip On Sneakers– The color of these is stunning! It’s called murky blue and looks like a blue/grey mix. There is a pink version of these slip on sneakers too! Again, velvet is trendy and I love slip on sneakers so these would be perfect to throw on and run out the door and would look great with leggings or jeans. They are $32.70!

9. Satin Sneakers– Again, this color is stunning! It’s a rose/gray color and the material is satin so naturally they look like a more chic/ dressed up version of a normal tennis shoe. They also come in a grey color as well. These are $29.70!

Nordstrom currently has a sale going on with 20%-55% off discounts (Ends 11/24)

10. Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick– These are a steal! Comparable in price to a lot of drug store lipsticks honestly. I’ve heard good things about these, so this price is great to try them at! I’ve got my eye on the shade ‘Amulet’ and they’re only $9!! FYI, they also have a lipstick/lip liner combo on sale for $15 too! (P.S. Nordstrom has a bunch of beauty goodies for a steal!)

11. Philosophy Shower Gel– I love the Philosophy cleanser as well as the shower gels. These smell AHHHMAZING! The holiday and classic scents are all included.. These would make perfect holiday gifts or even an easy ‘treat yo self’ gift ๐Ÿ˜‰ The shower gel is on sale for $12

12. BP Studded Faux Leather Crossbody– This is a staple for any girl. It’s great quality at a great price, definitely something you can get a lot of use out of it. This crossbody is only $18.42!

These are just a few of my favorite items I have found, but there are sooo many other goodies I have on my wishlist. Happy Thanksgiving and shopping loves!!

Hi loves! A post on a Tuesday… say whaaaa? But because of Thanksgiving on Thursday, I wanted to chat with you guys a few days earlier ๐Ÿ™‚ We actually had my side of the family’s Thanksgiving this past weekend but we will be celebrating with Darin’s side on actual Thanksgiving! I can’t wait to eat more than my weight in mashed potatoes and stuffing, lol. With that being said I knew as soon as I put on this top, I HAD to share it because it’s absolutely perfect for Thanksgiving!!

Mustard has grown on me lately and I’m especially loving it for fall. Not only is the color of this top adorable, but the ruffle details are TO DIE FOR!ย I’m all about feminine and dainty pieces ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s definitely a more “dressy” alternative to the traditional sweater on Thanksgiving, but I’m totally ok with it because it isn’t tight and has a looser fit so it hides the food baby perfectly ๐Ÿ˜‰ Which is what we all want, right?! It fits true to size; I’m wearing a size small for reference.

You can get this top from Boutique Rye just in time for Thanksgiving! Boutique Rye has soooo many cute and trendy pieces – from sweaters to accessories and everything in between! Not to mention, in their Facebook group, there are amazing live sales that make it feel like a fun girls night in shopping with your closest girlfriends! (Because who doesn’t love being able to shop from your couch with your pajamas on?!) Oh and even Wine Chat Monday’s where you can grab a glass of wine, a cup of coffee, or anything, sit down and tune in to chat with other gals! Don’t forget toย check out Boutique Rye on Instagram too ๐Ÿ™‚

I paired the mustard top with my current favorite denim, my staple brown booties, and even topped it off with a brown leather jacket. I think the brown of the booties and jacket compliment the yellow so well! My booties and jacket are both old, but I’m linking similar ones here and here.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family and friends! Have an extra serving of mashed potatoes and gravy for me ๐Ÿ˜‰

Xoxo

We’re a week out from Thanksgiving, friends! Which means it’s almost December, which means it’s almost time for 25 Days of Christmas on ABC Family (aka Freeform), which means people will stop judging me for listening to Christmas music already, which means it’s almost Christmas; I could go on and on, lol. If you couldn’t already guess, I’m slightly (ok, extremely ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) obsessed with the holidays- the food, the fashion, the music, the weather, etc. BRING IT ON!!

From one of my previous posts about graphic tees, you already know I’m a hoarder/lover of graphic tees. So when Sweet P & Fi wanted to team up with me to give ONE OF YOU a holiday graphic tee, I couldn’t resist! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve featured Sweet P & Fi on the blog before because this online boutique has adorable pieces at affordable prices! This maroon and gray “Baby It’s Cold Outside” baseball graphic tee is tooooo cute! I paired it with my favorite leggings, some fun fuzzy socks, and some hot chocolate (with wayyyy too many marshmallows ๐Ÿ™‚ ) The length covered my bum which I like when I’m pairing tees with leggings. Also, the material is so soft and I loved wearing it for a cozy night in! It would also be adorable with jeans, booties, and a staple beanie for something more dressed up! I mean, how cute is it!?

Alright, alright, let’s get down to the giveaway details ๐Ÿ™‚ I know you’re wondering how you can win this tee for yourself! Follow these steps to enter:

Easy as that! You can wear this gem on repeat all through December! The giveaway will close Monday, 11/20 at midnight CST. I’ll announce the winner on Tuesday, 11/21. Also, if you think this tee is cute, check out the Sweet P & Fi website for more goodies!

Xoxo
