Cyber Monday: Shopping and the Post Thanksgiving Blues

Show Me Your Mumu Kimono (50% off w/code MUMUSALE50 - it also comes in a tunic, OTS top, tank, and blouse)   | Nordstrom dress (on sale for under $25!) | Betseyville Studded Sandals (on sale for under $30) | Feather Earrings (not on sale, but only $19!)| Loren Hope Sarra Cuff (on sale for under $80 w/code THANKFULLY) | Map Watch (on sale for under $20)

I was originally going to use other photos for my Cyber Monday post, but I decided to use these from Saint Lucia instead, for a couple of reasons. 1) Everything I'm wearing (except my earrings) is on sale! 2) You're probably dreading going back to work today, as much as I am and need some Island vibes. You're welcome! Oh and disregard the wrinkles. Let's just say this outfit was well traveled ;) If you want to keep up with all my Saint Lucia posts, you can read them here:  honeymoon packing list, New Name, New Purse: Personalized Crossbody Pouch, I wore the Same Workout Clothes for a week and this is what happened and The Art of Versatility: Floral Dress styled for summer and fall.

Anyway, back to the money saving matter at hand! I still remember the first time I shopped Cyber Monday. It was circa 2009 - I was 18 and a freshman in college. I purchased a hot pink Kate Spade Crossbody that was on sale for a fraction of the selling price. I thought I had hit the jackpot! Fast forward 7 years to today and I am still using that purse and appreciate Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales more than ever. 

I still operate under the "is it actually a good buy", but take advantage of them more than I did as an 18 year. I think this is the actual definition of adulting - saving money on gifts for others and things you actually need, so you have more wine money...or something like that ;) A lot of sales are still going on, so make sure you take advantage of them. So, what am I buying?

-Gifts for friends and family: Of course Christmas gifts, but my Dad's birthday is in December as well. Also, I'm not opposed to buying gifts months in advance! It saves money and time/stress in the long run.

-Clothing Basics for me and Nick: Okay, mainly for Nick, but I do update my basics when I need to. This year, I'm hoping to update my brown loafers that I have had since I was 17!

-Furniture and household products: We just moved in together and are trying to decorate, but that gets so expensive! We are shopping for furniture deals, as well as other products, like a humidifier. Realllllly exciting stuff, here!

I listed all of the Black Friday sales here, plus all of my recent blog and instagram looks that are on sale here, but I wanted to share sales that are still going on/just starting, so you could take advantage of them or see if you missed one. So, here goes in alphabetical order!
