Sale Snacks: Holiday Outfits for You and Your Children.

So many of the picks from my holiday dress roundup are currently on sale, but I wanted to call out a few exceptional sale finds from this list as well as a couple of additions:

+This stunning velvet dress with the prettiest bows on the shoulders — 30% off! I already bought my velvet Christmas dress but I might need this one, too.

+This feather-trim tuxedo blouse is EVERYTHING. I would pair with big statement earrings, cigarette pants, and heels and feel like Audrey Hepburn in it.

+Jewel embroidered shift (so unusual — such a statement! — and 30% off).

+Cult Gaia statement clutch (extra 15% off sale price with code 15EXTRA).

+Sweetest bow-shouldered top in cheery red (20% off purchases over $200).

+This sage green turtleneck dress is the perfect muted Christmas look.

+This bold red style packs a major punch. J’adore.

+Velvet hairbows (I bought two — one for me, one for mini).

+Tartan mules ($69!) — easiest way to transform your favorite jeans and black or ivory sweater into something perfect for Christmas day. (This $40 pair of flat tartan mules is also darling.)

+This spruce-colored, velvet-collared coat is BANANAS.

For little ones, don’t miss this Janie + Jack promotion — 35% off everything, plus free shipping:

+Adore this shawl-collar sweater, this knit train one-piece, and this navy blue velour shortall for little boys.

+And for girls, this cheery red sweater, this plaid jacquard dress, and these plaid leggings.

Frilly Frog is also offering 40% off some current-season holiday outfits (discount automatically applied at checkout), including this beyond precious Sal e Pimenta red velvet confection (baby brother can match in these), this gorgeous traditional tartan dress, and this precious bubble.

I already bought a number of holiday outfits for my children from small business Born Boutique, who is (similar to Frilly Frog, and carrying many of the same brands) offering 40% off this selection with code THANKFUL40. I bought Hill this plaid/velvet top and short set and both of my children the blue velvet Sal e Pimenta pieces.

Last but not least, a smattering of items I’m eyeing seriously on this final (?) day of promotions: this Tory Sport fleece (30% off), these Lululemon running tees and loose-fit tanks, this crib skirt for Hill’s nursery (20% off and free ship — note that this sweet gingham style for a girl’s room is even more deeply discounted; $24 shipped!!!), my favorite body lotion (20% off and free ship!), and these pastel Loeffler Randall mules, which are somehow $119 in my size…!

P.S. Prestige beauty items on rare sale and a shortlist of all my favorite sale buys.

P.P.S. Do you want more fiction? I have been working on the book quite a bit and am desperate to share…


  1. That Marques’Almeida dress with the exaggerated sleeves! If I had somewhere to go this Christmas, that’s what I would want to wear. Instead, I’ll be in a cozy but still festive nap dress 🙂

    Also, can’t believe J.Crew is doing 70% off full price rn (!! — is this a death knell?!) … may have to snag a couple of those velvet hair bows while I still can!


    1. I know, those sleeves are major!!!

      Agree on J. Crew — I feel like most of their store has been marked down to 60% off since Black Friday.


  2. I also just happened to see Nordstrom has the stroller mittens you’ve recommended in the past on sale today! And who doesn’t need those this winter!?

    1. Oh yay!!! I love those so much. I thought they were so frivolous when I first saw them but I totally get their utility in the sense that you are often doing things for your children that make gloves/mittens impossible to wear WHILE DOING THEM — so you are always tucking your pair under your arm while fastening a strap, feeding a snack, adjusting a hat, etc. These mean your hands are warm while walking but free while…momming. Haha 🙂

  3. Please share more of your book! Loved the first excerpt and can’t wait to read it in the context of the full book.

  4. Love these sale suggestions (that green turtleneck is in my cart!), but more importantly- YES PLEASE to more of the book excerpts! I absolutely loved the first piece you shared, and am eager for more. Fingers crossed, and thank you!
