November Favorites + Things I’ve Worn That Are On Sale

Is anyone else confused about which day it is? Holiday weeks like this always mess me up. It feels it’s been one, long, continuous weekend since last Friday.

I didn’t have enough try-ons for a dedicated post today, so I decided to share my November Favorites and lump them together with things I’ve worn that are on sale this weekend.

November Favorites + Things I've Worn That Are On Sale

It’s also Small Business Saturday, so I encourage you to get out and shop local if you can. But don’t feel bad about shopping online through your favorite blogs. When you shop through our links, even at big box retailers, you are also supporting small businesses. That’s what bloggers are, after all!

I’ve been working practically round the clock for days, keeping my shopping guide up to date, sharing deals as I see them on Instagram in my Facebook Group, compiling gift guides… I hope my coverage of the the Cyber Week sales is helpful to you. Please feel free to let me know if there is anything in particular I can help you with.

As always, this post contains affiliate links. When you shop through my links, it helps support my business (at no additional cost to you) so thank you.

So let’s get started! Here are some new finds and old favorites that I’m particularly loving right now . . . and they all happen to be on sale this weekend!

November Favorites

REI is running a Cyber weekend sale, with savings up to 50%.

A few items from my outdoor gift guide post are included.

Rei Co-Op Women’s 650 Down Jacket 2.0 $69.89 (reg. $99) // I love this lightweight, packable down jacket. It’s a lot warmer than it looks, and it comes in some great colors. This washed red is so fun for a change from all my black and grey coats.

It was already priced well, but at 30% off, you will definitely want to grab one! Makes a good gift for a college-age girl as well.

Sorel Women’s Slimpack II Lace Winter Boots $108.69 (reg. $169) // These are the perfect all-weather boot. I like the rugged vibe, but they’re still on trend so they look great with jeans and sweaters.

They’re a nice style for Pennsylvania winters. We rarely get more than 4 or 5 inches of snow, but we also get a lot of rain, and these work well for both. They feature waterproof leather uppers with knit collars that have seam-sealed waterproof construction, plus there’s 100 grams of synthetic insulation to keep your feet dry and warm. They have a comfortable microfleece lining, EVA footbeds with arch support, and rubber shells with a 1.5 in. leather-wrapped heel for good traction on wet surfaces.

I wore these all day yesterday, and they were comfortable all day. Size up, though. I had to go up to a 9. (I’m usually 8 or 8.5 in boots.)

Sorel Men’s Madson Moc Toe Boots $134.99 (reg. $180) // Paul’s Sorel moc toe boots are also 30% off, and again, these are great because the style is appropriate for street wear but they’re also weather proof for those who live in areas with messy winters. He wore them all day yesterday as well, and reports that they’re very comfortable. They run TTS for him.

Lord + Taylor also has some great prices on Sorel boots right now.

Sorel Joan Of Arctic Faux Fur Suede Boots $150 (reg. $200) // If you want to take your winter style quotient up a notch or two, these Sorel boots with the faux fur trim are soooo gorgeous.

Plus, they have all the features that make Sorel so popular for winter climates — seam-sealed waterproof construction, removable recycled felt inner boot to keep feet warm down to -25°F, and rubber outsole for good traction on wet and slippery surfaces. Size up! I needed a 9 in these as well.

Dolce Vita Tierra Suede Ankle Bootie $36 (reg. $120) // This is an INSANELY good deal on quality booties. You can wear them all winter if you live in a warmer climate, but they’re still a nice spring and fall bootie for those of us in the north. They also come in black and grey, and they run TTS; I have the 8.

You also won’t want to miss out on these cashmere sweaters at Lord + Taylor — they’re down to $49!!!

Lord & Taylor Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater $49.99 (reg. $160) // These cashmere turtlenecks are such a great closet staple, and they comes in a myriad of gorgeous colors. I recommend sizing up in these; I have the medium.

Lord & Taylor Essential Cashmere Crewneck Sweater $49.99 (reg. $160) // This is the v-neck counterpart to the turtleneck above. Another solid closet staple, available in tons of colors. I recommend sizing up in these; I have the medium.

En Thread Long-Sleeve V-Neck Sweater $20.70 (reg. $69) // This one isn’t cashmere, but it’s very soft and cozy, and I love the pastel green and blue options for winter. It’s TTS; I have the small.

Larry Levine Faux-Fur Hooded Coat $79 (reg. $220) // This coat is such a gorgeous shade of off-white, but it also comes in other colors. It’s flattering and comfortable to wear, and very warm. I love the quilted pattern in the back and the vertical zip pockets in the front. Size up if in between, I have the medium.

Anthropologie is running a rare 30% off sitewide sale.

A few of my favorite sweaters are included, plus they have a nice selection of premium denim.

Anthropologie Vera cardigan $82.60 (reg. $118) // This cardigan is soooo soft and thick and cozy and WARM. I also love the color palette. It’s TTS; I have the small.

Maggie bell sleeve sweater $62.97 (reg. $130) // This sweater is trendy and fun, and it’s also soft and comfortable. It comes in 3 colors, and it runs TTS with a generous fit; I have the small.

Ethan camo sweater $84 (reg. $120) // This sweater has been hugely popular with JLS readers, and sizes are getting low, but they did restock a few overnight.

I love the subtle camo print; it almost reads as an animal print. It’s a really nice quality with lovely details, and it pairs well with blue jeans as well as grey and black.

Madewell is also doing 30% off this weekend.

I love their sweaters, and they also do a good pair of jeans that won’t break the bank.

Madewell Donegal Evercrest Coziest Yarn Turtleneck Sweater (also at Nordstrom) $52.50 (reg. $75) // This sweater is pretty with slimming lines. I’m wearing the medium, but I think a small would be more flattering and easier to layer under a moto jacket.

Either way, it works, it’s just a matter of preference on how you want it to fit. Use code GIFTWELL to get the discount.

Madewell Kent cardigan $54. 60 (reg. $98) // I wore this cardigan a ton in the fall, and they’ve come out with a new version, so I decided to spring for it.

I really love this color palette for moving into winter. It runs a little big, but I still purchased the size small. Use code GIFTWELL to get the additional discount.

Madewell Varick turtleneck sweater $78 (reg. $98) // This is another good one from Madewell — a pleasing thick and chunky knit with a cool ribbed detail at the neck, cuffs, and hem. And traditional on-shoulder seams! Those are hard to find. It runs TTS; I have the small. Use code GIFTWELL to get the discount.

Madewell 9″ Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans in Pendale Wash $77 (reg. $128) // Madewell is known for doing quality denim that has good shape retention, and these are really nice on. They’re a nice lower priced alternative to the AG and Mother brand skinnies I often wear.

I feel like the fit is really flattering, and it’s a nice even mid-indigo wash that is more casual than dressy. The 9″ rise is high enough to be on trend, but still flattering on those of us who are short-waisted. The material is soft and stretchy and very comfortable. These run TTS; I have the 29. Use code GIFTWELL to get the discount.

J.Crew is at 40% off right now, but I expect them to go 50% off on Monday.

This is a great opportunity to update your winter coat, and they also have a great sweater game going right now.

J.Crew pointelle turtleneck $58.80 (reg. $98) // This is such a pretty color (it comes in others) and I like the shape of it — relaxed without adding visual weight. I like that I can dress it up or down — it’s really pretty with grey jeans. This sweater runs TTS; I have the small. Use code FRIDAY to get the discount.

J.Crew Mockneck Sweater in Supersoft Yarn in Spicy Jade $53.70 (reg. $89) // This sweater is verrrry soft and cozy, it fits close to the body without clinging, and I love the knit detail at the shoulders and sides. Also, yay for on-shoulder seams! (As opposed to the drop sleeve style that is so popular right now.)

I went with the medium, and I like the fit. It’s pretty body-con in the small. Even if that’s how it’s supposed to fit, I prefer the medium, so decide how you want it to fit, and choose your size accordingly. Use code FRIDAY to get the discount.

J.Crew Cocoon coat in Italian stadium-cloth wool $219 (reg. $365) // This classic coat is such nice quality, and it’s currently 40% off! (I do expect it to go up to 50% off on Monday… so you may want to hold off. But it’s still a great deal on a quality coat that will last many years.)

It also comes in a bunch of other colors, and it’s available in petite and tall sizes. It runs TTS; I have the 8. Use code FRIDAY to get the discount.

FYI, the flower drop earrings I’m wearing are also 40% off this weekend, with code FRIYAY.

J.Crew Pointed-toe flats in leopard calf hair $106.80 (reg. $178) // I love these flats — they’re so chic with the pointed toe and black trim. I love that they have just a tiny heel. I did size up half to accommodate the pointy toe (reviews are mixed on whether or not you should size up.)

They haven’t been included in J.Crew’s more recents sales, although I did score mine for 40% off last spring. I was so excited to see them still available and included now! Use code FRIDAY to get the discount.

J.Crew Fuzzy fringe scarf with watercolor stripe $45 (reg. $75) // This scarf is so thick and soft and cozy — very fun for livening up a neutral outfit. It would make a fun gift too. Use code FRIDAY to get the discount.

J.Crew Tartan Scarf $41.70 (reg. $69) // I also love this tartan scarf. It’s not as thick as the one above, a little more traditional. It comes in two other plaids as well as this pretty pink/grey combo.

J.Crew Factory Leopard Open Cardigan $46.50 (reg. $118) // This sweater is a really nice quality knit, kind of a tight weave, and a little dressier than your typical cardigan. It also has a flattering slim fit, and a nice length — shorter than a lot of the cardigans that are out right now. This is definitely a nice work wear piece.

P.S. The mixed jersey tank that I’m wearing underneath is 50%  off! I have it in ivory and black, and it’s my favorite layering piece for under cardigans.

J.Crew Factory Open-Front Cardigan in Extra-Soft Yarn $35.50 (reg. $89) // Another winner from J.Crew Factory! This one isn’t quite as soft as I was expecting, but that didn’t prevent me from keeping it. I really like this shade of camel, and the shape of this sweater is slimming… for a cardigan, anyway. Plus pockets!

Tory Burch Kira Tote $418.60 (reg. $598) // This luxe tote has a Chanel-esque vibe, but with a much more palatable price tag. Still an investment, but on sale it’s a good deal.

The leather is like butter, and the gold hardware is bold without crossing the line into garish. It’s really a gorgeous bag, and a nice size for taking from day to night.

It also comes in a gorgeous taupe, and both are included in the 30% off Tory Burch sale. Use code THANKS to get the discount.

LOFT ribbed open cardigan  $32.25 (reg. $64) // I’m really impressed with this LOFT cardigan. It’s a nice thin ribbed knit that is slimming, the on-shoulder seams are flattering, and it is a pretty shade of camel that works on those of us with cool undertones. It’s TTS; I have the small. Use code FRIYAY to get the discount.

FYI, the checked blanket scarf is also 50% off with code FRIYAY.

LOFT Tie Cuff Sweater $27.49 (reg. $59) // This is a really pretty sweater, the tie cuffs are fun, and the neckline is flattering.

I love this pastel teal, but it also comes in a pretty light grey. It looks nice with grey, and I also think it would be beautiful with winter white pants. It’s TTS; I have the small. Use code FRIYAY to get the discount.

LOFT shimmer v-neck sweater $34.75 (reg. $69) // This is such a nice one for holiday, the color isn’t your typical red or green or even ivory or black… but it’s still festive, and the shimmer makes it even more fun. It’s TTS; I have the small. Use code FRIYAY to get the discount.

Victoria Emerson bracelets BOGO FREE // I have so many, it was hard to decide which one to choose to feature here, but I enjoy them all, and they’re currently BOGO free!

Rag & Bone Women’s Margot Waxed Suede Ankle Boots $297 (reg. $495) // These booties are so, so good. I managed to snag them on sale a few years ago, and they are always in regular rotation all fall and winter. I love the slightly edgy vibe, and because they’re a hard waxed suede, they’re very weather resistant.

Yes, they’re pricey, but Rag & Bone quality is outstanding. They are entirely leather lined on the inside, so smooth against the foot. (I rarely wear socks with them, but sometimes I do in the dead of winter.) Gorgeous booties.

AG Farrah Skinny Ankle Jeans up to 25% off with code MORE19 (reg. $225) // I purchased these during the last Shopbop sale, and I’ve been wearing them to death. They’re on sale again — up to 25% off with code MORE19.

Sizes are limited, but Shopbop has other AG Farrah skinnies on sale. I love the higher, but not super high rise, and they fit just like my old favorites — the AG legging ankle jeans — through the hips, rear, and legs.

FYI, my Tory Burch Minnies in the suede tiramisu is also on sale at Shopbop — sizes are limited, but if they have yours, they’re on sale for $159.60 (down from $225), plus then they qualify for the spend more, save more sale.

Also find suede Tory Burch Minnies on sale at Bloomies and Tory Burch.

DL1961 x Marianna Hewitt Instasculpt Farrow High Waist Crop Fray Step Hem Skinny Jeans 113.40 (reg. $189) // These jeans have a great fit and feel and a fun step hem. The inseam is 26″ so they’re more on the cropped side, and the rise is 10″ so perfect for those who like a higher rise. They’re very flattering and comfortable due to DL’s 4-way stretch, and they just went 40% off!

BlankNYC Suede Moto Jacket $125.96 (reg. $188) // This is one of my favorite moto jackets — the taupe suede is so pretty with light neutrals, and also with navy, burgundy, and black. Size up if in between; I take a medium in all BlankNYC jackets.

Spanx faux leather leggings $78.40 (reg. $198) // These Spanx faux leather leggings have been the talk of the town, so I was excited to get a pair in my last Trunk Club box. These are the small, and I would rather have a medium, but they are definitely a great quality and have a chic look about them.

I’m not much of a leggings girl, but if any would change my mind, it would be these. They rarely go on sale, but they’re currently 20% off at Nordstrom and Spanx.com.

Marc Fisher hiker boots $129 (reg. $259) // I just got these, and I LOVE them. You wouldn’t expect it to look at them, but they’re soft, lightweight, and flexible. The padded collar is really comfy, and I love the styling.

They also come in brown suede, but I really wanted leather so I can wear them in inclement weather. They run big; I recommend sizing down half.

Splendid thermal flight cardi $58.80 (reg. $98) // This cardigan has been a reader favorite for YEARS, and it’s often excluded from promos because it’s so popular, but it’s currently 40% off! I have it in black and stone, and I love them both.

I keep these out all year-round and wear them over my pajamas in the mornings, I usually travel with one, I’ll throw it on over a tee and shorts if I’m chilly in the summertime, and I also wear it with jeans in spring and fall.

I wear a medium in these. Use code THANKS40 for the discount.

Biossance Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel $25 (reg. $54) // This ultra-hydrating eye gel uses all clean ingredients to reduce the look of dark circles and puffiness. I’ve just started using it, but so far I’m really impressed with how it helps reduce under-eye puffiness I struggle with.

It’s on a flash sale this weekend only. Get it for more than 50% off the retail price — it’s usually $54, but it’s on sale for $25!

Dyson Hairdryer with stand $320 for Amazon Prime members* (reg. $399) // I am LOVING my new Dyson hair dryer. I know the price tag is daunting, and certainly no one NEEDS a $400 hair dryer, BUT. If you have hard to manage hair, or delicate hair that is sensitive to high heat, or you just enjoy luxury beauty products… this hairdryer truly is deserving of the hype.

I am working on a full review, so I won’t go into too much detail here, but it has made a huge difference in the texture and manageability of my hair, and I feel like it has to be better for it because it’s not as hot as other dryers.

*You’ll need to be signed into your Amazon Prime account, add to cart, and proceed to checkout to see the discount.

Orolay Thickened Down Jacket (a.k.a. The Amazon Coat 30% off* // This coat was a fun surprise. I didn’t get the hype, so I ordered it to see for myself, and I fully expected to hate it, but I don’t!

It really is fun if you like the oversized look that is trending right now, and it is amazingly warm. I’m wearing the small, but it was a bit tight over the hips, although I unzipped the sides and it was fine. Some say to size up . . . it’s preference, I think. I don’t wear a ton of heavy layers, so the small works for me.

*Prices vary, but if you plug in your size and color, you will see a box to check off to apply a coupon to get 30% off.

WHBM Sequin-Front Tank $59.40 (reg. $99) // I think this sequin tank is so fun and flattering, and I love that I can wear a regular bra with it. Perfect for holiday!

WHBM High-Rise Coated Skinny Jeans $59.40 (reg. $99) // These are great pants, very flattering, and comfortable to wear. The coated denim gives them a leather look, so they’re perfect for those occasions when you want a little extra edge to your outfit.

These run big, and they do stretch out some with wear, so I recommend sizing down. I have the 6, but after wearing them all night, I really need the 4. I am usually between a 6 or 8 in pants, for reference. Use code 36115 for the discount.

Holiday Dress Roundup

Eliza J Sequined Capsleeve Sheath Dress $96.60 (reg. $138) // This dress is so pretty and flattering, perfect for a black tie optional winter wedding, or a semi-formal holiday party. It’s TTS; I have the 8.

In Conclusion . . .

I could go on, but this is a good place to start!

All of the retailers I’ve featured above are running spectacular sales this weekend. Some may get a little better on Monday… but I can’t see any going more than an additional 10% off by then.

It’s a gamble if you buy now or wait, but if you wait, I’d love for you to revisit this post on Monday before you ADD TO CART!

  1. Love all your favorites. The Eliza dress is stunning on you! If I had dressy, formal occasions to attend would snap it up but we dress super casual here. Its so chilly here -17C or 1 F ❄😖
    Hibernating at home and putting up Christmas decorations, writing out Christmas cards and staying warm and cozy.

  2. Omg, this post must have taken you hours, but if it’s any consulation, I think I loved 90 percent of it!!! Love your style, love your budget, love your small business blog 😉 Thank You!!!!

  3. Great post! Love the fair isle sweater you are wearing under the cocoon coat. Curious to know your thoughts on the quality/fit on that. Looks great on you.

  4. On the loft camel cardigan you  state ” it is a pretty shade of camel that works on those of us with cool undertones.”   I posted two camel coats on the FB group for comments and one of the things I’m concerned about is color.  I’ve got your coloring and don’t want to buy a camel coat with too much brown in it.  How do I tell if the shade is right or not?  Thanks for giving us great advice and so much detail in your posts. Very helpful!

  5. Loving that BLANK NYC Moto jacket. I’ve seen it pop up a lot but wondered what it looks like on a real woman! It looks pretty amazing ‘in person’. I like the color you purchased. It looks like a great neutral you can mix and match with several different outfits!

  6. Finally scored the Maggie sweater from Anthropologie in a small! Thank you for reminding me to look again, sizes have been depleted for awhile. Hope I love it as much as you do, and that it looks as cute on me as it does on you!

  7. On the NYC suede moto jacket, could you tell me how long the sleeves are, from the shoulder seam to the end of the sleeves? I tend to have shorter arms, and although this jacket seems to be exactly what I am looking for, I see that it has zippers in the sleeves so I dont believe they could be altered. Thanks you very much, in advance.

  8. Thanks for researching and posting such a great variety of items and price points! I think you’ve done more than half of my Christmas shopping for me. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  9. The V neck sweater at Lord & Taylor, which you featured in light green (and also comes in light blue), is on sale for $20.70!

    I ordered it in blue, using your Shop My Instagram link.
