**UPDATE: There's now a storewide 50% off sale. See this post for some of my current and all-time favorites.
So there is yet another sale at Express right now, and at first glance I thought it was a40% off storewide based on the promotional email:
The key words on that ad are "up to." Quite a lot of stuff is 40% off, but many of my favorite categories (like Jeans, Barcelona Camis and Jackets) are only 30% off. Here's a quick breakdown of the savings in different categories, and some references to outfits here or in other posts where you can see me wearing some of my favorites.
Most Sweaters (e.g. London Sweater in Outfit 4 and this Draped Cardigan shown in three colors Here)
Outerwear (e.g. This Jacket in Outfit 4)
Jewelry (e.g. This Necklace in Outfit 2, my favorite for this season)
Barcelona Camis (Shown in outfits 2 and 3, my collection here)
Portofino Shirts (Several favorites in This Post)
Jeans (Outfits 1-3, Other favorites in This Post)
Jackets (Including Blazers as seen in This Post)
One Eleven Collection (Including the London Tee as seen in This Post)
The fine print also says this can't be combined with any other promotion or offer, which makes it sound like you can't use coupons on top of this sale. But if anyone is successfully able to use coupons on top of this please leave a comment below and share your methods! I have my eye on some jeans but I've seen better deals so I might wait this one out.
In other non-Express sale news, Kellie let me know that she just picked up one of my favorite pairs of shoes, the Sole Society Juli Wedge (below) for 40% off. These come in other colors and prints too, but only a few (including this option) are 40% off.

If you've been following my fitness recaps for awhile it might be starting to look fairly predictable, especially now that I'm working my way through Cathe's STS Program. But predictable or not, I enjoy my workouts and that's what helps me stay consistent so here's what I did this week:
Saturday: Cardio Kickboxing (local studio)
Sunday: Dance class (local studio)
Monday: Cathe STS Meso 1 Week 4 Legs (Amazon)
Tuesday: Cathe Ripped with HiiT (Amazon)
Wednesday: Cathe STS Meso 1 Week 4 Chest, Shoulders, Triceps (Amazon)
Thursday: Dance review, Stretching
Friday: Cathe STS Meso 1 Week 4 Back, Triceps (Amazon)
Notes and Modifications: Just like last week, I modified Wednesday's Chest work quite a bit. This week I actually counted and Cathe does a total of 143 push-ups in this workout (so my guess of 152 last week was actually not far off!), in addition to bench presses and flyes. I modified by doing a lot of them on my knees and just skipping some sets altogether because it's just too much for me. I also skipped the last two rounds of exercises for each muscle group due to time constraints.
I haven't quite finalized what my posting schedule will be here for next week, although I am planning to post again on Tuesday. But it's unlikely I'll post a recap next Friday (Christmas Day) or that I'll have it ready to go on Thursday, but you never know! I'm just going to go with the flow on the minimal stress route, and I highly recommend that path to everyone for optimal holiday enjoyment!
