Your Cyber Monday Activewear Shopping Guide

activewear-cyber-monday-salesHaving rent due tomorrow is actually awesome because it’s keeping my urge to shop Cyber Monday deals in check. If you missed my Black Friday roundup, a lot of those sales are still valid through today, so you can always browse that post as well.

35% Off Bandier

I’ve highlighted Bandier several times on the blog now, but what the heck. Let’s once again round up some of my current favorites in celebration of the 35% off sale. Ignore that the image says 25–it’s just a typo I’m too lazy to fix. The sale is actually 35% off everything.bandier-sale

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

21% Off Forever 21 with code CYBER21

Forever21 is cheap to begin with, so this is the sale to shop if you want to get a LOT (quantity anyway haha) for a little.

Here’s how it works:

  • Spend $250+ Save 15%
  • Spend $500+ Save 20%
  • Spend $1000+ Save 25%

Now I have no business spending $250 on clothes in the first place, so I personally won’t be shopping this sale (ha!), but I’ve had the pleasure of working with Shopbop the past couple months and am obsessed with their activewear boutique. OBSESSED. shopbop-sale-cyber-monday

20% off Carbon38

If you’re unfamiliar with Carbon38, it’s basically like a Nordstrom of activewear. carbon-38-cyber-monday-discount

Urban Outfitters Tiered Discounts

Here’s how it works:

  • Spend $75+ Save $15
  • Spend $150+ Save $50

Urban Outfitters actually has a decent selection of activewear. In true UO form, there is also a good helping of their overpriced hipster “vintage” stuff that makes absolutely no sense (you know exactly what I’m talking about!), but their active label, Without Walls is awesome. Think surfer meets yogi meets hiker vibes. So you don’t have to waste your time scrolling through “vintage” forks and other Urban randomness, here are some highlights: urban-outfitters-cyber-monday-sale

The Perfect Post-Feast Clothes

Golden Tote ReviewI’m putting this post together on the WordPress app on my cell phone while Joe drives us back to Boston, so bear with me if there are 4,000 typos and none of the pictures or links render …

A while ago, I got the chance to try out Golden Tote for free (HERE is the original post with details about the service), and liked the clothing I got so much that I recently decided to order myself another tote. I went with their $49 small tote, which gives you 2-3 items, one of which you pick. The others are surprises, selected by a Golden Tote stylist. I love the two items I got! They’re both stylish but COMFORTABLE. So perfect for weekends like Thanksgiving when I want to be wearing loungewear 24/7 but without looking like a total slob. Mildly slobby is fine, but haven’t-left-my-couch-in-four-days is a look I try to avoid when possible. 😉

Relaxed Jersey Pant

These were my pick. They’re a soft jersey material and can be worn all year round. How I first envisioned wearing them was actually with a crop tank top and gladiator sandals but that’ll have to wait until next summer. In the meantime, they’re great for lounging, working from home and casual weekend outfits. Golden Tote ReviewGolden Tote ReviewGolden Tote Review

OUTFIT DETAILS | Golden Tote pants // Stitch Fix sweater // Urban Outfitters cropped white sweater // Stitch Fix black jacket // Vans sneakers c/o DICK’s // Watch c/o Daniel Wellington // sunglasses and scarf are cheapies from (literally) a gas station haha

Turtle Neck Sweater Poncho

This was the item Golden Tote picked for me and I love it! Ponchos, capes, blankets–they’re all the same and the only thing I ever want to be wearing. I dressed mine up a little with leather-look leggings and a big necklace. Golden Tote ReviewGolden Tote ReviewGolden Tote Review

OUTFIT DETAILS | Golden Tote sweater // Simply Vera Wang leggings c/o Kohl’s // Aldo booties // Watch c/c Daniel Wellington // my grandma won the necklace in a raffle, no clue who made it

Reader Discount Code

With these outfits, I’m wearing a Daniel Wellington watch and get to give you guys a discount code! DW completely spoiled me with three watches for the holidays (don’t worry, I’m gifting two–I’m selfish but not THAT selfish haha). In addition to classic black or brown leather straps they have fun striped options that scream “New England summer.” 

Use the code DWANDIRON for 15% off any order until January 15th. They offer free worldwide shipping so this is a great deal for ALL my readers. Daniel Wellington discount codeGolden Tote ReviewDaniel Wellington discount code

So how was everyone’s Thanksgiving?? Joe and I had a great time down in New Jersey with his mom, nephews, niece and aunt. We took the kids to a Devil’s game and then to a nearby state park the next day and they had a blast. Already can’t wait till Christmas so I can see their cute little faces again! :)  

 Disclosure: Links to Golden Tote are affiliate (I get $1.50 if you were to sign up for the service using one of my links). Daniel Wellington graciously gave me three watches for the holiday season and a discount code for all of you! I’m not required to or being paid to post about either company though.

Your Black Friday Activewear Shopping Guide

black-friday-activewear-salesI know your email inboxes are already FLOODED with brands shoving their Black Friday deals in your face, but I wanted to round up some of the best offers from companies I’ve recently worked with on the blog and from whom I shop all the time. I’ve been informed that a few of my favorite brands are offering better deals for Cyber Monday than Black Friday so I’m holding off and will highlight those in a couple days. The links in this post are affiliate, which means if you were to click over to a brand’s site and buy something from them, I’d get a small kickback (emphasis on *small* haha). Happy shopping!

80% off Select Styles + 20% off sale items from Revolve with code BLACKFRIDAY20

Ohhhhhkay. I went a little overboard with this collage of favorite pieces but Revolve is one of my weaknesses. I go through the site silently yelling YASSS! YASSS! and then look at my checkout price and am harshly reminded that I’m not, in fact, Oprah. I have the #3 tank below from Vimmia and it’s SO comfortable–great for everyday wear as well as workouts. AND THOSE #7 LEGGINGS. Need!! revolve-black-friday-sale

Aaaaand I’ve officially met my Photoshop collage limit for the day. Happy shopping!
