Nordstrom & Kendra Scott Staples on Sale:
Kendra Scott currently has 20% off the entire site through today with the code SALE20, and Nordstrom is price matching! So pick your favorite retailer and happy shopping on some pieces that don't go on sale very often. My two favorite necklaces that I own in multiple colors are the Rayne necklace (shown below with the grey tee) and the Elisa pendant (the shorter necklace shown with the burgundy tee). On top of that, this t-shirt from Nordstrom is also on sale at Nordstrom (under $17) through today! I have it in grey, white and burgundy and just ordered Blush and Black thanks to the sale.
Nordstrom | Jeans: Express (50% off today) | Necklace: Nordstrom | Watch: Fossil | Hat: Forever 21 (Similar) | Watch: Fossil | Shoes: Amazon
Here's another outfit with the V Neck Tee and Elisa Pendant:
Nordstrom | Jeans: Express (Similar) | Short Necklace: Nordstrom (My exact color sold out, closest option in my opinion is Brown Pearl) | Long Necklace: Express | Watch: c/o Fossil | Shoes: Amazon | Bag: Tory Burch (Option)
It's really hard to choose a color for these, especially if it's your first purchase, so for what it's worth, my very most-used Elisa pendant is the Platinum Druzy. The mixed metal look really makes it go with everything. After glancing through my Instagram feed, my most-used Rayne necklace is Maroon Jade followed by Magenta.
Here's the front view for these outfits plus two more outfits featuring these closet staples:

Kendra Scott and Stella & Dot are a couple of my jewelry favorites and they both had really great sales for Black Friday. Kendra's runs through today but I'm not sure yet if the Stella & Dot pieces will still be on sale today. Regardless, I particularly wanted to add some mixed metal necklaces and earrings to my jewelry collection (I talked about my accessorizing strategies and reasons for loving mixed metals in this post) along with some classic looking styles:
As mentioned above, you can find my full list of Express purchases here and try-ons of the pieces that already arrived (ShopRunner shipping for the win!) here. I was on a mission to get a light grey moto jacket during the sales, and I ordered three candidates. I don't intend to keep all three of them but I do need to compare them in person to decide. The jackets from Nordstrom Rack (the first two below) aren't on sale but are reasonably priced (under $70), and the Nordstrom option is still on sale through today.
I haven't tried or even seen any of these in person yet so I can't offer any other helpful info on them. But I love seeing what other people order during the sales so I'm sharing my choices anyway for those who like to know. I'm also hoping fit and quality will make the decision easy for me when I get all three in my hands because I definitely cannot justify keeping all of them!
I also ordered several tops at Macy's (first three) and Nordstrom:
Black/Buffalo Plaid Top | Grey/Black/White | Striped Tee | Grey Sweater (sold out in most sizes)
I don't own any layered tops like the two I purchased but I love the concept so I'm hoping they work out for me since I'm not too familiar with the fit, sizing or quality of the brand.
That does it for me! I will be doing quite a lot of returns in the coming weeks and hopefully not too many purchases because my bank account needs a break. Hope you all had some shopping success over the holiday as well!
