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

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

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! :)

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!

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

ANYWAY. Is anyone even reading this or has everyone totally checked out for Thanksgiving weekend by now? I’ll be spending my day in the car as we head down to Jersey, but today’s post is for all you poor saps forced to work a half day at the office (been there!). Since there’s a good chance that you and that one creepy janitor are the only two still in the building, no one will notice if you waste a few minutes scrolling through pictures of me wearing sweatshirts and leggings. 😉
