The Best Post-Holiday Sales to Shop Now!

Dec 27, 2016


Get my striped sweater 50% off right here! (Just $41!) 

I know, I know. The biggest shopping season of the year is supposed to be OVER. Except, actually, it isn’t.

Did you know that the period right after Christmas is one of the best times to shop sales? There are a ton of retailers with great sales up to 40 and 50% off right now, like J.Crew, Ann Taylor, Anthropologie, and Tuckernuck to name a few–but the best one, of course (how well do you know me?) is Nordstrom. (Right now, Nordstrom is hosting their half-yearly sale, where you can get SO MANY THINGS at up to 50% off!)

I’ll be popping in here from time to time over the next couple days to highlight my favorites, so make sure to check back often!

Wed PM Update: Blouses & Tops


There are a lot of great tops and blouses on sale right now! Many of which are great year-round go-to’s–like feminine blouses–but plenty of cozy winter must-haves, too! I love this twist-front top in particular which is less than $30 with the sale!

Wed AM Update: Makeup!

Nordstrom has a ton of great makeup on sale right now, including this lipstick set I’m OBSESSED with. I have the red and the nude set and love them both equally! A lot of Bobbi Brown is also on sale (I’ve been wanting to try her moisturizing foundation!) and Kiehl’s, too!


Activewear on sale:

First up, let’s start with something we’re all on the hunt for right now, given New Years Resolutions: Activewear! Nordstrom has a ton of activewear on sale–especially in the way of pants. I love this fun pair especially!

Denim on sale:

Nordstrom has quite a few great pairs of jeans on sale from premium brands like Joe’s and Paige! (Both brands I absolutely love.) If you’re looking for a new pair of jeans, I’d definitely check them out!

Favorite Boots on sale:


If you read my post earlier this morning, you know how much I love my new Coach riding boots! Right now, they’re 40% off at Nordstrom and they also come in a wider-calf version!


My waterproof suede OTK boots are back in stock! YAY! They’re especially great if you have more narrow calves and have had trouble finding OTK boots that fit properly!

On Sale Sweaters:


I got this sweater over Black Friday (blog post coming soon!) and sadly it sold out in this beige color, but is available in grey! It’s super super soft, so it’s perfect for both wearing around the house or out and about–it’s the perfect layer for winter! My favorite striped sweater is also on sale, and I’ve got my eye on this perfect classic black turtleneck sweater, too! This one also looks insanely comfortable.
