If you’re reading this on Thursday, I hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving if you’re stateside! (And if you’re reading this after Thanksgiving, I hope you had a great holiday!) I’m excited to have a day off of work (and wish we could have had the whole week off…or at least Friday, too, haha). I signed us up for the Turkey Day 5k run/walk bright and early in the morning so I don’t get to sleep in, but I’ll feel much better about stuffing myself full of mashed potatoes later in the day. ;)

Are you doing any sale shopping this week/end? I’m really trying hard to not shop every single sale that appears in my inbox. It’s so tempting to browse every site just because the deals are so good right now. I have my eyes on a couple of things from Madewell, and I might buy some new undies from Victoria’s Secret if they offer a good deal with free shipping, but other than that I really don’t need or want anything myself. I wish I had a better idea of gifts to give my family and friends because now would be the time to buy them—ha!

Today’s outfit is one I wore to work—big surprise. I recently picked up this striped silk shell from Everlane, and the stripes are so thin that it tricks out the camera (and me, if I’m honest!). It’s definitely one you can’t stare at for too long or else you might go cross-eyed, haha! The asymmetrical sweatshirt toned down the stripes, and I wore my olive jeans mostly because I wasn’t really feeling blue denim with this look. My black patent chelsea boots complete any outfit. I still love them over a year later!

If you’re in the mood for some retail therapy, here’s what’s going on with most of the brands featured in this post:

  • Everlane / They always do a Black Friday Fund, where proceeds from sales on Black Friday benefit their factory workers in various ways. I’m not sure what the fund will benefit this year, but if you’re looking to contribute, the silk shell I’m wearing in this post is a part of their Choose What You Pay sale (though the shell is only accessible through the “exclusive” link). They have a plethora of other items in the CWYP sale, too. (If you’re new to the brand, here’s my referral link!)

  • Madewell / Take 25% off your purchase with code DEALWITHIT through Sunday, November 25th. Shipping is always free for Madewell Insiders (you just need to sign up!). It doesn’t appear that their famous Transport totes are excluded, which is awesome. I carry my medium Transport tote in English saddle to work with me every day! (They’re also price-matched at Nordstrom.)

  • Uniqlo / They’re doing various markdowns and offering free shipping on all orders. You can’t see it here, but I’m wearing a long-sleeved Heattech tee under the sweatshirt and silk shell to add another layer of warmth (that’s my trick to wearing a sweatshirt or blazer and tank combination in the cooler months!). Keep an eye out for markdowns on Heattech! I wear the long-sleeved tees and tank tops all winter long.

  • Nordstrom Rack / Take an extra 30% off of clearance items and free shipping on all orders through Monday, November 26th. My Marc Fisher boots are available at Nordstrom Rack for only $90! They aren’t eligible for an extra 30% off but shipping would be free. I sized up a half size but could have probably also fit into my usual size (however, I think they may run a tad narrow).

  • Moorea Seal / Take up to 70% off everything, plus get free shipping! I’m tempted to buy a couple of little things to give as gifts.

  • Sephora / There are quite a few products and gift sets available in the sale section!
