Greetings on this fine October Sunday morning!
We’re actually gearing up for some rain today, but we had an absolutely gorgeous fall day yesterday, so I can’t complain. In fact, I’m thinking it’s the perfect excuse for an afternoon nap.
I really wanted to get outside yesterday and do something fun for fall with the family, but the girls weren’t feeling it. They had both asked friends to join, and that didn’t work out, and heaven forbid the two of them be friends for a day! #sisters
So we went to Target and Chick-Fil-A instead. I know, it doesn’t get much more basic than that.
I did take the dog for a walk, at least, and I went out to dinner with girlfriends last night.
We’re getting to the point where we have to plan these things weeks in advance, so we had the date on the calendar for a while. We usually get together at someone’s house, with kids and husbands around; and it was really nice to go out and spend some quality, uninterrupted time together. Plus, even better when a group of moms gets to sit and be served!
Other than that, my week has been pretty mundane.
Before I let you go, I want to share a couple of really good deals I noticed.
A few of you were interested in the dress my younger daughter wore to the wedding last weekend.
(Was that just last weekend??? It seems like a month ago!)
It was more than I wanted to spend at the time (although I did get it for like 20% off or something) but now it is marked down significantly, PLUS it’s an extra 40% off today only.
In fact, all of Lord + Taylor’s dresses are an extra 40% off today only. If you have had your eye on something, now is the time to snap it up.
That brings this darling dress down to $87. The quality is really lovely, and it’s a nice style that can be worn to a variety of occasions. She definitely plans to wear hers again.
We also highly recommend the shoes she wore. She found them very comfortable to wear all night, and they’re a nice low-heel style for anyone who needs that. I thought they were really cute and age appropriate for her. (She just turned 14.)
And then the Madewell Kent cardigan in the gorgeous fall stripes is marked down, PLUS an extra 30% off with code BESTNEWS. (And shipping is free for Madewell Insiders!) I have the small, for reference.
There are actually tons of exceptionally good deals going on this weekend (40% off J.Crew coats and sweaters… 40% off at LOFT plus an additional 15% off for rewards members… to name a few), but I shared those plus more in yesterday’s email.
I don’t want to beat a dead horse so if you missed either of those, be sure to check it out!
I hope you and yours have a relaxing and blessed Sunday.
