HOW TO PREPARE FOR CYBER WEEK!

My guide on how to shop Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and everything in between to get the best deals!


Stores i'll be shopping at: 

1. FILL YOUR CART!
A few days before Cyber Week starts, go to each website and just fill your cart up! Anything you've been eyeing, or anything that you've been hesitant to pull the trigger on. If you don't like it, you can always return it (Places like Sole Society will throw in a Final Sale when they have big deals- so just watch out for that)!
Once your cart is filled (look at the total and pass out- just kidding ;) YOU WILL GET COUPON CODES!)  make sure you SIGN IN to save all of the contents to your cart (this also helps if you're shopping over multiple devices) so you're ready to check out as soon as the coupons drop!


2. LOOK OUT FOR PRICE ADJUSTMENT POLICIES!
I always take note if I am able to price adjust. J.Crew is well know for a. having the BEST customer service. I have price adjusted at J.Crew multiple times. Note, they will adjust prices within 1 week of order date.
Because J.Crew has really good deals (usually 40% off plus free shipping- at some point during Cyber Week) their sizes go VERY quickly on hot items. I would suggest ordering things like their Lodge coat (which I saw in store and fell in L O V E with!), the Lady Day coat, Stadium Cloth Cocoon coat, Downtown Field jacket, Excursion vests, or Chateau Parka no earlier than Monday Nov. 20, to take advantage of potential sizes being available prior to the big markdowns. Sizes are available in 000-16 in petite, regular, and tall sizes- so they have EVERYONE covered (pun intended.)

Nordstrom is another store that price adjusts. They price adjust within 2 weeks of the original order date. Nordstrom also price matches, which is awesome because their return policy is freaking amazing. So if you see something you are unsure of keeping/liking, order it from Nordstrom and you can have more time with your purchase to decide.
PS. I mentioned on stories that Nordstrom has some kind of Cyber Week deals, one of you guys who followed my story (and used to work for Nordstrom) told me that they do not offer any Cyber week deals, so my bad with wrong info! Sorry!

3. ORDER AS SOON AS YOUR SIZE BECOMES AVAILABLE!
If a retailer is offering free shipping, order often! If you have a few things that you have your eye on, keep refreshing the website and if you notice that the color or size that you wanted is available, order it! If there is free shipping, it won't cost you anything to order multiple things whenever something becomes available!

4. SIGN UP FOR REWARDS PROGRAMS
Some stores like American Eagle/Aerie, and Abercrombie offer rewards programs at no cost to the consumer. Once you sign up (Here for AE/Aerie; Here for Abercrombie) you can start earning point based on dollar amounts spent, rack up enough points and you'll get a $10 or $15 reward. With American Eagle's program, you get free jeans and bras!

5. BOOKMARK YOUR FAVORITE GIFT GUIDES
This one is self explanatory, if you come across an awesome gift guide, bookmark it in your browser, or save the website on your phone! That way, you can always go back to it to check and see if the items that they have on their gift guides are on sale
Be sure to use that bloggers link if you are purchasing through their gift guide! They spent a lot of time on curating the best items for you, so give them credit!
You can bookmark my gift guide a well!

6. KEEP A LIST OF ALL YOUR FAVORITE INSTASTORY BLOGGERS
Cyber Week is going to be all that anyone on stories is going to be talking about! With the sudden influx of new stories from people who might not always broadcast, it's easy to lose sight of your favorite grammers, so keep a list! I know I'm going to be watching Jen, Courtney, Brittany, and some others all week long!

7. SIGN UP FOR STORE EMAILS
With Black Friday and Cyber Monday being such awesome times to shop, you'll want to make sure that you sign up for store emails so sale info is waiting for you when you wake up in the morning! Sometimes stores like to send email specific codes as well, especially if you're a loyal shopper.

However, because Cyber Week is such a high traffic time, emails can get delayed; so for that reason or if you just don't want to sign up for emails, you can also just keep windows on your phone, or in your browser open to a retailers landing page. Morning of all you have to do is refresh the page to see what deals the retailer is offering so you're always on top of the sale info. I always have a TON of windows open to different retailers daily, to make sure I'm giving you guys the best sale info!

Make sure you have any coupons, or gift certificates handy so you can use them when your making your Cyber Week purchases! Also, if you have already memorized your credit card info, make sure you have your wallet within reach or saved to a website so you can check out without any issues.

8. SHOP FOR SPLURGE ITEMS
Cyber Week is the BEST TIME to shop for splurge items that you might not otherwise buy because they are usually so heavily discounted! A lot of hot items include boots, coats, and sweaters- especially cashmere ones! Cyber Week is also a great time to shop for home decor to get your home ready for the Holiday's! I spoke about throw blankets on stories the other day! Places like Pier1 and Crate+Barrel have deals!

Like I said at the top of the post, J.Crew is probably the best place to shop if you need a wool coat- they're the warmest! They're also really good when it comes to cashmere! I personally don't own any cashmere because its too high maintenance for me (AKA- I can't machine wash it!)
My favorite places for non-cashmere sweaters are old navy, H&M, American Eagle, Express...
As far as boots go, obv. Stuart Weitzman is the best- I just can't muster up the courage to spend that kind of money on a pair of boots... DSW, Macy's, Zappos, Target, Nordstrom, and Steve Madden are my fav places to shop!
I have these from Target, this brand from DSW is good, I have these Steve Madden boots, these which I just got.


What I'm eyeing: 



Free People: This bralette in blackthis tank to go over the bralette in black and white


My favorite OTK Boots:

Best Winter Coats:
On my Radar: J.Crew

HAPPY SHOPPING!!!

As Told By INSTA-STORIES #2

Another Insta story, another blog post!
Follow along to see the clothes in action!

---


This PJ set is the CUTEST! As I told you on stories the other night, it comes in 2 other very festive patterns that would be PERFECT for Christmas Morning! I had no intention of wearing these Christmas morning, so I got the neutral set- shocker. 
FIT: Runs TTS, I'm wearing my usual XS. It has a working drawstring, but I personally would not need to use it for ht purpose of holding the shorts up. 
It's made of a super soft, but light weight flannel, they're just so cozy!

---



I have been after the FP bralette for the LONGEST time, I've seen it on so many people and its just so pretty, but I was stuck on the $38 price tag. I HATE paying full price for things, and the fact that this bralette was ONLY available at free people and they like NEVER provide coupon codes- urked me lol. But then I saw Aerie had a similar one in their new arrivals section (it's normally $29, but they are running a promo until Halloween where you can buy 2 for $31), and I thought I would check it out to see if it was comparable. 
Well, there is DEFINITELY a difference. While the double strap is probably the biggest similarity, the Aerie bralette is less pretty than the FP one. When I put the FP bralette on, I instantly felt prettier- weird, I know, but it's just so delicate and boho and gah! I love it! Like I said in stories, if you're after the bralette for the double strap look, then go for the Aerie bralette because its cheaper and seems like the fabric will hold up better than the FP one. Many of the reviewers of the FR bralette said theirs ripped on them, BUT they take ripped bralettes back which is good to know. If you are familiar with other Aerie bralettes, they are all made of the same fabric. The black Aerie bralette seems to have slightly less stretch than the grey one; while the FP bralette has a lot of stretch to it. I personally love the look of the FP bralette. I love that the floral lace detail sticks out of tops, depending on how you wear them. I will be ordering more FP bralettes if they go on sale for Black Friday or Christmas. 
It should be noted that neither of these bralettes have any padding whatsoever. I will probably be wearing a sticky bra with it if need be. 
FIT: I would say they run TTS I'm wearing an XS in both. I know reviewers have also said that if you have a bigger chest, they were surprised by the amount of support the FP bralette provided,  I can't speak for this, so if you are near a Free People retail store, pop in and try one on!
Verdict: I will definitely be keeping the FP bralette, undecided if I will be retuning both Aerie bralettes or just one...

This puff sleeve sweatshirt (currently on clearance for UNDER $20!) is a casual way to wear the balloon sleeve trend. It's not the softest thing I've felt, but its still slouchy and cozy! 
FIT: I sized up, like I always do for balloon sleeve tops. I just think the sleeves fit better and balloonier (yes, I just made that up) when it's more oversized.

Apparently these jeans have sold out... BUT I found these which I actually like better, and put them in my cart... The jeans that I am wearing run TTS, and are so so so soft! They have a raw hemline, just like the ones I linked for you guys, which make the cuff sit so much nicer! Definitely a fan of Abercrombie jeans

These booties you've seen a million times. I love them, they're really comfy and run TTS. They also come in black with the brown heel!

This necklace I love to wear with my cognac shoes. The bronze in the necklace just ties the warmer colors together and just makes the outfit flow better.

I can't say enough good things about this cardigan! I love everything from the color to the overall fit of it! As I was trying (and failing) to explain on stories, the bottom front of the cardigan comes up slightly in the front, which gives a slimming appearance. I love that it has pockets as well! 
FIT: I would say this cardigan runs TTS (I'm wearing an xs) ,I have this one layered with a long sleeve tee, and the arms a slightly tight. You could definitely get away with sizing up if you wanted a more oversized fit.

GAH! If you're looking for the most PERFECT long sleeve layering tee, look no further, HERE IT IS! It is literally the softest tee I've ever felt, but not soft as in it's going to get pilly and gross after one wash, soft as in silky soft! I got my usual size in this and it's definitely more fitted, which is exactly what I was looking for. The best part... IT'S TEN FREAKING DOLLARS!!! and comes in 10 colors (2 for $18 if you buy in bulk) like WHAT?? You'll thank me later. Hang on while I buy all the colors... 

TopShop Leigh Moto pants are back on sale (I own 2 pairs)! They're marked down to $42! I sized up, like all the reviewers said and they fit like a dream! I'm wearing a size 25.

You guys always go nuts when I wear this necklace! It's my fav and I wear it ALL. THE. TIME. (If you can't tell ;) ) It's currently under $30 which is a steal! I also found a similar one in gold, if silver isn't your thing!

Sam Edelman Leopard Booties (also available here; similar herehere, and here- these are the ones I would get if the ones I got weren't available)- there are no words... Just WOW! This is a statement shoe for sure, and I LOVE THEM!
They run TTS, but I have them in half a size smaller because that was all they had in store! They still feel good if I don't wear socks. They are comfy to walk in too! And I love the way they look with this hunter green color!

This leopard scarf is too cute to pass up! It's very light weight and perfect if you don't like the hugeness of blanket scarves! 

These black booties are a new addition to my collection. They're currently 40% off at just $59, which if you tried them on, you wouldn't believe thats the price! When I first tried them on straight out of the box, they seemed a tad tight, but walking around in them for 5 minutes around the house loosened them up and now they're PERFECT! I can't recommend them enough! They have a small like 1.5" heel so they have more arch support than a totally flat shoe. I just love them so much and cant recommend them enough... I also have the olive pair!
FIT: TTS, I'm wearing my normal size 7.5. 


---


THIS FLANNEL IS EVERYTHING! Its so soft and so lightweight and the fit is so flattering! I'm wearing my usual size XS and i'm obsessed w the fit! and it comes in 10 other patterns, I have the navy as well as this one and I love the fit of them! They're the perfect amount of drapey and just SO GOOD.

This exact skirt is from a few years ago, but I found an almost identical one here. You know the quality is amazing if you get this one. I love the edginess of a faux leather pleated skirt! 

These booties are from a few years ago and I wound't recommend them. These booties look really cute and are very similar!

As you can see, I bought both colors of this sweater, and as you heard on stories, I ended up liking the black one more! I sized up because I wanted a more oversized fit, and I couldnt be happier with the fit! The sweater isn't super soft, but I love the way it drapes. What can I say, I have a thing for stripes!

I was SO excited when I saw this sweater on Old Navy's website! I love it in person, but just not on me :( . It's SO soft and warm and just so nice, but I think it's just too long for me. I'm 5'3" and I feel like it just swallows me whole. If you're taller than me, please get this so I can live vicariously through you! 
FIT: runs big I would say, I'm wearing an xs and its just big...

This sweater is the result of my trip to the mall on Friday. What drew me to it was the U neck, they're such a flattering neckline, and not something you see all the time. The back is longer than the front so you can wear it with leggings. The sweater itself is thin and lightweight, and not as soft as some other sweaters from H&M, but I still love it. At $25, you really can't go wrong. 
FIT: Runs big, I'm wearing an xs. 

American Eagle Olive Skinny jeans: These are the softest pants ever! They're super comfy, and stretchy, and they fit like a dream. I got my usual size 0 in the short length (i'm 5'3" with short legs). But I like the look of cuffed pants, so I cuff mine.
FIT: Runs TTS, if you're between sizes, size down.

ANDDD.. Another new pair of booties :). The color of these are what drew me in, grey is one of my favorite colors, so these were a no brainer. The only problem that these have is that they don't have a zipper, they're just pull on, which could be a problem if you have wider feet. I find it easier to push them on like you would a sneaker, than sitting down and putting them on. 
FIT: runs TTS, i'm wearing my usual 7.5.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for reading!!

As Told By INSTA-STORIES #1

Hello, hello! I have done another try on session today, so that means... You get a blog post to go along with it! It seems like you guys find these really helpful! 
Follow me on Instagram to see more stories and reviews!


BP. Side Slit Tee: This tee is A M A Z I N G. It's obviously the simplest thing ever, but it's just so good. The brand tends to run large, and this tee is no exception. I am wearing my usual size in this brand (xxs). I love the fit of it tho. It is long enough in the back where you can wear it with leggings. It's very light weight, but not flimsy- you can tell the quality is goo. It's also great for layering. the best part?? It's ONLY $19!! Snag one color or pattern or all 6! You will NOT regret it!

This necklace you guys always go crazy for when I post about it! It is by far my favorite necklace right now AND its UNDER $50!!

American Eagle Olive Skinny jeans: These are the softest pants ever! They're super comfy, and stretchy, and they fit like a dream. I got my usual size 0 in the short length (i'm 5'3" with short legs). But I like the look of cuffed pants, so I cuff mine.
Right now pants and jeans are buy one get one 50% off and you can stack the dollar amount off as well- I put them all in my cart and it came out to $60 something which makes the jeans cheaper than what I paid!

FIT: Everyone says they run slightly small, but I got my usual 7.5 and they fit perfect!
Very comfy!

This ruffle sweater is a find that I posted about on my stories last weekend. I love the ruffle detail and slight bell/ruffle sleeve. I'm wearing my usual size XS, and it fits very well. You can do SO much with this top!

These American Eagle boyfriend jeans are super old, but they have so many great options available currently. All jeans are B1G1 50% off and you can stack the extra dollar amount off at checkout!

These silver loafers are a D R E A M. They fit so well right out of the box. They are pricy, but I got mine a couple years ago on sale, so if you can find them in store on sale, JUMP ON IT!

This necklace you guys always go crazy for when I post about it! It is by far my favorite necklace right now AND its UNDER $50!!

Another balloon sleeve shirt!! And I'm obsessed!! Its so soft, and runs TTS. The color online says its ivory, but it's definitely a light blush. Either way, I love it!

Levi's 721 High Rise Skinnies (Currently 30% off with code FRIENDS) 
Also available here here and here
FIT: Tight when you put them on but runs TTS; I bought my normal size 24, but because the rips are wide around the knees it allows for extra stretch room. They only had a 30" inseam, so that is what I purchased, if they had a 28" inseam I would have bought that.
I wore them to dinner last night and I ate SO much and was STUFFED, and these jeans were actually still comfy, even after all that food! I think I will be buying a second pair because they are THAT awesome!

Sam Edelman Leopard Booties (also available here; similar herehere, and here)- there are no words... Just WOW! This is a statement shoe for sure, and I LOVE THEM!
They run TTS, but I have them in half a size smaller because that was all they had in store! They still feel good if I don't wear socks. They are comfy to walk in too!

Of course I had to have this balloon sleeve sweater. I sized up because I tried the smaller size and HATED the way it looked, but the bigger size just fits so much better! It is a medium weight sweater and would be perfect for layering over a chambray, or under a puffer or military vest!

This long moto jacket is literally everything. It is SO flattering and the perfect jacket for the Fall and mild Winter! I'm OBSESSED with the color and the fit of this thing! It also comes in black, navy, and  new blush and olive colors- which i'm DYING over! It's SO soft too.
I also bought the marled grey color as well, but did not like the construction of that one. It seemed cheap and not as well made as the solid colors

Necklace: Starfish project

This necklace you guys always go crazy for when I post about it! It is by far my favorite necklace right now AND its UNDER $50!!

This Express flap bag is buttery soft, and while there are no pockets on the inside, that really does not bother me. The quality seems really good and its just the softest pleather ever!
I will always wear the straps doubled, but wearing it as a cross body is definitely an option!

This tunic is the best. thing. ever.
It can be worn dressy, casual, to work, out on the town. It ca be layered under sweaters, over leggings, any way your little heart desires. AND it's only $27!
I have this same tunic in 2 colors (the white, and the army green) and I love them! The white is definitely more sheer than the others colors, but you can wear the v-neck cami I spoke about before or a regular cami under it, depending on the look you're going for. If I know I want to wear black or very dark colored bottoms, ill wear a black v-neck cami under so the outfit looks more streamlined, otherwise i'll just wear a white or nude cami.

Sage green Sweater- not on sale, but only $25 ! I'm wearing a size small, but could have easily gone with the XS. LOVE that the sleeves are super long!

These puffer vests are so cute, theyre very similar to the J.Crew vests, but at just a fraction of the cost theyre so worth it! The vest is very light weight and perfect for transition weather or wearing under jackets in the winter! Plus they come in so many colors! 
They run TTS; I'm wearing an XS.
Currently the whole site is 20% off with code SWEET

The slit on these jeans is what sold me on them. I usually do not buy jeans from Loft, but when I saw these I had to have them! They run TTS, im wearing my usual size 00. They have stretch to them, which is nice. They also have a cool raw hem at the bottom. 

FIT: Runs TTS Wearing my normal size 7.5

Blackwatch Plaid Flannel is my favorite pattern! This top and all the other plaids are JUST $15 today! It's a super soft fabric, and runs pretty TTS, if you want a more oversized fit, just size up 1 size. I love this thing tho! My favorite way to pair blackwatch plaid is with cognac, like I did in my stories!

These OTK boots are from last years Nordstrom sale, but THESE are this years version and I think they're even cuter! I love the laser cut detail! Mine run TTS, and the new ones are the same brand and everything, so I'm assuming they also run TTS.

Also available HERE on SUPER SALE (and in the tan color I was wearing in my stories)
FIT: Runs slightly small, if between sizes, order 1 size up; I'm wearing my normal size 7.5

I was undecided about this sweater but posted a poll on Instagram and everyone voted to keep it! I was unsure about the length of it, because it is more of a cropped boxy fit. Layering it will make it all better tho! It runs TTS, im wearing an XS.

Also available HERE on SUPER SALE (and in the tan color I was wearing in my stories)
FIT: Runs slightly small, if between sizes, order 1 size up; I'm wearing my normal size 7.5

This leopard scarf is too cute to pass up! It's very light weight and perfect if you don't like the hugeness of blanket scarves!

This necklace you guys always go crazy for when I post about it! It is by far my favorite necklace right now AND its UNDER $50!!

Levi's 721 High Rise Skinnies (Currently 30% off with code FRIENDS) 
Also available here here and here
FIT: Tight when you put them on but runs TTS; I bought my normal size 24, but because the rips are wide around the knees it allows for extra stretch room. They only had a 30" inseam, so that is what I purchased, if they had a 28" inseam I would have bought that.

These OTK boots are from last years Nordstrom sale, but THESE are this years version and I think they're even cuter! I love the laser cut detail! Mine run TTS, and the new ones are the same brand and everything, so I'm assuming they also run TTS.

I styled this chenille cardigan in the Autumn Ochre color (I have both the mustard color and the rose pink color). It is currently only available in an XL; but I shared it because if you can get it in your local store, DO IT! (There is a similar version available HERE but it is not on sale- I was totally in love with this one when I tried it on (tried on the size small)!)
For reference, I purchased a size small because they did not have my usual size in stock; 
I reviewed it more here

This V-neck cami is AMAZING. I love the fact that it is a v-neck because it can be worn under v-neck tops if you don't want your cami to be seen.  It runs a little big from the types of cami's that I am used to buying (I usually like them skin tight) but an x-small fits me well. I am definitely going to buy them in every color!

Sam Edelman Leopard Booties (also available here; similar here, here, and here)- there are no words... Just WOW! This is a statement shoe for sure, and I LOVE THEM!
They run TTS, but I have them in half a size smaller because that was all they had in store! They still feel good if I don't wear socks. They are comfy to walk in too!

- - -


This Express Plush Tee is just amazing. I love the fit of it (I sized up because they did not have my size, but I'm glad I did). The sleeves are tighter with a dolman structure. It is longer in the back which means you can wear it with leggings easily. I have the sage green color in my shopping cart right now! LOVE them!

YOU NEED THESE LEGGINGS!!!
FIT: I bought an xs, they do have an xxs available but I don't like my leggings to be skin tight. The fit is phenomenal. They have pockets big enough for your phone, AND they're fleece lined!! I'm telling you, they're God's gift to the world!! Go buy them now!
I bought the black in regular length which hits at the ankle, and the burgundy and green in short length, which hits a few inches above my ankle.

These OTK boots are from last years Nordstrom sale, but THESE are this years version and I think they're even cuter! I love the laser cut detail! Mine run TTS, and the new ones are the same brand and everything, so I'm assuming they also run TTS.

This leopard scarf is too cute to pass up! It's very light weight and perfect if you don't like the hugeness of blanket scarves! Plus it's like $9!

This Express flap bag is buttery soft, and while there are no pockets on the inside, that really does not bother me. The quality seems really good and its just the softest pleather ever!
I will always wear the straps doubled, but wearing it as a cross body is definitely an option!

This long moto jacket is literally everything. It is SO flattering and the perfect jacket for the Fall and mild Winter! I'm OBSESSED with the color and the fit of this thing! It also comes in black, navy, and a new blush color! It's SO soft too.
I also bought the marled grey color as well, but did not like the construction of that one. It seemed cheap and not as well made as the solid colors

I got this moss green sweater last year and they came back with the exact same sweater again this year! I love it! It runs large, I'm wearing a size 2, but I love the oversized fit, I love how it can be worn off the shoulder, and with leggings.

Blackwatch Plaid Flannel is my favorite pattern! This top and all the other plaids are JUST $15 today! It's a super soft fabric, and runs pretty TTS, if you want a more oversized fit, just size up 1 size. I love this thing tho! My favorite way to pair blackwatch plaid is with cognac, like I did in my stories!

TopShop Leigh Moto pants are back on sale! They're marked down to $42! I sized up, like all the reviewers said and they fit like a dream! I'm wearing a size 25.

These OTK boots are from last years Nordstrom sale, but these are this years version and I think they're even cuter! I love the laser cut detail! Mine run TTS, and the new ones are the same brand and everything, so I'm assuming they also run TTS.

These puffer vests are so cute, theyre very similar to the J.Crew vests, but at just a fraction of the cost theyre so worth it! The vest is very light weight and perfect for transition weather or wearing under jackets in the winter! Plus they come in so many colors! 
They run TTS; I'm wearing an XS.

This peplum is the cutest! I love the blueberry color and it fits really well! I'm wearing my normal size XS, but probably could have gone up to a small and it would have fit ok too. Also comes in other colors and a striped option!

The flannel dress that I showed you in last weeks insta story try on haul is on sale for 35% off! You already know how much I love this dress. It's SO soft and SO versatile (I showed you guys like 15 different ways to wear it!) But it comes in a few other patterns and I think it is a MUST BUY!

FIT: Bought one size up for slightly more oversized fit.

This tunic is the best. thing. ever.
It can be worn dressy, casual, to work, out on the town. It ca be layered under sweaters, over leggings, any way your little heart desires. AND it's only $27!
I have this same tunic in 2 colors (the white, and the army green) and I love them! The white is definitely more sheer than the others colors, but you can wear the v-neck cami I spoke about before or a regular cami under it, depending on the look you're going for. If I know I want to wear black or very dark colored bottoms, ill wear a black v-neck cami under so the outfit looks more streamlined, otherwise i'll just wear a white or nude cami.
TO LAYER: since this tunic does not have a collar, it is just a split neck, it could look a little funny layered under a sweater. I find that simply throwing a scarf over it makes it look SO much better! 
As seen below!

The Herringbone vest that everyone was obsessing over 2 years ago appears to be making a comeback! I love this vest, herringbone is probably my favorite pattern! 
It runs TTS, I'm wearing an XXS.
