2019 Black Friday Deals + my top picks

A round-up of 2019 Black Friday deals and what I’m buying!

Happy day after Thanksgiving! I hope you had a wonderful holiday with family and/or friends. This year Tommy and I stayed home in Winston-Salem and our friends Adam and Alise joined us. We usually head to see family in Pinehurst, Boone or Utah, but this year we made plans to stay home. I’ve traveled SO much this year (I think I’ve been on 30 flights?) and traveling honestly sounded more exhausting than fun. Plus, we both needed some rest from the emotional week we had after saying goodbye to Maizey. I’m thankful we kept it small and stayed at home. I’m especially grateful for Tommy, time at home, and the memories of Maizey. And thank you all for the outpouring of love – it means more than you know.

I’m popping onto the blog to share all the Black Friday promos happening along with my top picks.

On Sale Items I Own & Love

  • Spanx Faux Leather Leggings – I have the non-moto version and I LOVE them, so I’m getting these too. My regular ones are an XS and I plan to size up to a S in these.
  • Good American jeans  – I first tried this brand during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and now I’m hooked. They’re slightly stretchy, very flattering — especially if you have a booty like I do —  and the washes are gorgeous. I got a 26 but may size down to 25 since they do stretch out a little with wear.
  • Lululemon Align Pants – the most flattering, comfortable leggings they sale, end of story.

I rounded up the 2019 Black Friday deals for the places I shop the most below. I’m most excited about the BeautycounterJ.Crew and J.Crew Factory deals. And, Nordstrom is my #1 option for sales, since they carry everything and have an amazing return policy. For workout gear, Lululemon, Athleta and Backcountry are my go-to’s. For running shoes, I hit the Adidas and New Balance sales.

If you need some outfit inspiration, check out my recent outfits posts here and here. And you can see my wardrobe wishlist here – I’m planning to click through it myself to see what’s on sale! And my favorite workout gear is on this page.
