Cyber Monday Deals (with Coupon Codes!)

It’s officially holiday shopping season! Well, let’s be real… holiday sales started right after Halloween this year. But Cyber Monday is still a perfect time to stock up on gifts (or stuff for yourself) with steep discounts available at most etailers.

I scoured the Internet looking for awesome deals so that you don’t have to. So if you spent your weekend avoiding the mall or opting outside, here are some Cyber Monday sales you can check out from the peace and warmth of your couch.

Fall Fashion Deals on Scarfs

Perhaps the best thing about blanket scarfs becoming more popular is that now it’s easier than ever to find them for a good deal! The last few years, I had to rely on Zara restocking (and dropping 50 bucks), or a generous eBay seller, but now these plaid blanket scarfs are everywhere from discount shops like Five Below to online boutiques — all at great prices.

Best Drugstore Beauty Deals for Fall

I’m a sucker for makeup. I hardly wear any, and I don’t apply any of it correctly, but I love trying new products. It’s probably the dream that it’ll help me hide a flaw or reshape my features that makes me spend on new beauty products. Given my obsession, I’m all about the drug store products (I’d probably be poor otherwise; let’s be real). It’s so fun to experiment with a new look without spending a lot of money.

I’ve learned over time that my sensitive skin can’t handle trying new foundations and concealer, but bronzer, eyeliner, and lipstick? Count me in. Here are my favorite beauty products this month:

Deals on Designer Bags

I used to roll my eyes at designer bags, never thinking they were worth the huge price tag. But as I started working in a more corporate environment that appreciates a sophisticated look, I started keeping my eyes open for deals on higher quality bags.

I’m a firm believer that something you’ll keep forever or get a ton of use out of is worth a higher price tag, if you calculate price per wear (divide the price tag by the amount of times you use it). The beautiful construction of Coach bags and their soft leather is something that drew me to the brand, and the lack of large buckles or tacky bling keeps them looking simple and classy.

Luckily, they have outlets where you can snag major discounts on their bags, wallets, clothing, and accessories — even above 50% off. And even better, they have an online Coach outlet that occasionally runs flash sales for all members. All you have to do is create an account (for free) and make sure you get the emails. Here are some of my current favorites in the Coach outlet’s sale.

I Love the 90s

I heard that if you were alive and participating in a trend, you’re not really supposed to lean into it when it comes back around a decade or two later. And I tried to resist the resurgence of chokers, chunky shoes, and bold florals for a while… I really did. But after discovering this dress, I just couldn’t hold out any longer.

I’m pretty damn sure I had this exact dress when I was seven, and honestly, sometimes it’s nice to feel like you’re in second grade again. Am I right, or…?!

Mixing Textures for Fall

Someone once told me “fall looks so good on you” — and it was one of the best compliments I’ve ever received. I absolutely love the fall season. Everything from the colors, to the prints, to the textures… oh my god, the textures. It’s finally chilly enough to wear knits and leather booties, but still warm enough to wear flowy dresses and lace.

I recently picked up some basics that I’m sure will become staples of my fall wardrobe, and though I bought them all separately, I can’t help but love how they all look together too.

The Sensible Style is back!

Well it’s been quite a while since there’s been an update here, but after much debate… I’m back!

So I’m back here to share what I love with all of you — finding affordable ways to dress, party, and decorate that don’t look or feel discounted.
