Happy New Year’s Day, and cheers to 2022! Did I say there would be no new post today? Well, I lied. I found some sales I wanted to tell you about, so I’ll combine them with my weekly Coffee Talk. And yes, I know it’s Saturday, not Sunday! Although I did have to look at the calendar to be sure… I seriously could not remember. But this post will replace tomorrow’s, since I expect some of these sale items to sell out by then.
I hope you all had a happy and safe New Year’s Eve. I was in bed by 8PM, no joke. Paul put together a plate of cheese and crackers, and I popped some frozen Beef Franks in a Blanket in the oven while C made chocolate fondue. I also made chicken noodle soup while all of this was going on. R’s still not feeling well, and I wanted to have some in the house for her, and in case anyone else follows suit. We popped open the Prosecco somewhere along the way, and that was our New Year’s Eve in a nutshell.
I had envisioned vegging on the couch with the book D gave me for Christmas, but by the time I was done with the soup, I realized I still ended up standing in the kitchen half the night, and I was feeling very done with 2021. Everyone was doing their own thing, so I went up to my room and watched Netflix on my laptop in bed until I fell asleep.
There are no kissy pictures or boomerangs of clinking glasses on Instagram to usher in the new year, and yet, here we are! It’s another dreary, rainy day here in PA, almost as if 2022 is trying to say, Don’t get your hopes up…
I do feel like we are sort of tiptoeing into this new year, don’t you? If you’re tempted to feel pessimistic, as I am, I think it’s important to remember that life is largely what we make of it. There will always be unexpected events and sicknesses and heartaches, but it’s how we handle those disappointments that really matters. I love how one of my friends put it on Facebook this morning… This year, may we all hold loosely to plans and tightly to Christ! That is what I’m going to strive to do.
I’m at a loss for a smooth segue, so let’s just dive right into the weekend sales. I usually do a weekend sales roundup in my Saturday newsletter, but today I thought I’d put together an easy shopping widget here on the blog with the items that caught my eye.
New Year’s Day Sales
I noticed a few new Nordstrom finds this morning — like the Vince Weekend V-Neck in camel on sale for $154, down from $295… so tempted. I have it in the grey, and I love it. It has such a nice drape, and it’s super soft and luxe. If I hadn’t just bought the Equipment Madalene in camel, I would jump on this. (By the way, I found the Equipment Madalene in rust and blue on sale at Nordstrom Rack.)
Also, this Vince cashmere v-neck is a gorgeous color and has such pretty details. I can’t find a length measurement on it, but it’s called a tunic on the Vince website, so I think it’s a little longer than the Weekend V-Neck.
There’s also some good Zella on sale at Nordstrom, Athleta still has a good sale going on, and LOFT has 40% off new arrivals. I just ordered a few of their sweaters that are featured below. There’s also this black puffer at Backcountry and this Tory Burch tote at Nordstrom. I’m sure there are more good sales out there right now, but these are the ones that caught my eye.
