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. 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!
