Hey, friends! How was your weekend? I hope it was great! Ryan and I had a little getaway to the Poconos this weekend. It was much needed! Do you ever feel like you’re going so non-stop that you forget to live you life a little, too? That’s how we felt. We take time off from work while at home, but it always seems to creep back in somehow. Physically going away really helps to distance yourself from the work and breathe a bit. We went to one our favorite places in PA, called The French Manor Inn & Spa. We first went on our honeymoon for their New Year’s Eve party and have found ourselves returning for years to come. This time we went to a murder mystery weekend! It was so hilarious and fun! There were about 60 people there all dressed up as characters on a cruise where a murder takes place. Ryan was Chief Running Deer, and I was Princess Teary-Eyes! 🙂 We were not native American’s but people who dressed up as them for a Wild West Show on tour in Europe, haha. There was a table of evidence and articles to read, and everyone had a clue to divulge to one another. There was a really nice wine and cheese hour, cocktail hour, tea hour, dinner, and a breakfast! So, we ate a lot and really enjoyed ourselves! We even had massages which were pretty amazing. If you are ever looking for a getaway in PA in the mountains, it’s a fabulous spot to be!
I knew that returning home would mean back to work! So, I spent the drive home thinking about the amazing sales this week and the ones to come after Thanksgiving like Black Friday and of course Cyber Monday! One place you can ALWAYS count on to have an amazing sale is Express! It’s so funny because I used to shop there in high school, yet I still find sophisticated, trendy pieces that still fit in my life many years later! I love that they have a range of sizes for everyone! They even use plus-size models in their campaigns now which is awesome! Being petite, I appreciate that they have petite sized pants, skirts, dresses, blazers, etc. so that I don’t always have to have everything hemmed and taken up or in. They also have really great work wear! If you are a 9-5er or are out in the professional world and have to look the part, Express is such a great place to shop! Their suits are always so flattering and they stay on top of trends with different styles and cuts. I have always been a fan of their jeans, too. They fit so well and look really nice, too. Plus, they almost always have some kind of a sale going on, and a lot of the time it is 40% off! Can’t beat that! It’s happening right now and I’m sure will be over Black Friday and Cyber Monday, too, so keep your eyes out for that.
During the last 40% off sale, I found this adorable little faux fur jacket! I love the deep emerald color! It’s perfect for the holiday season! It’s so soft and warm and goes perfectly over a sweater with jeans, a dress or skirt. Faux fur is such a huge trend right now. We are seeing it in so many different colors, too! I personally can’t get enough. I paired this jacket with my favorite jeans, nude heels, and my go-to beret! You can shop this entire look by clicking here.
Below I’ve linked 50 of my absolute favorite items from the Express Sale! I have quite of a few these already, so you may have seen me wearing them on the blog or on Instagram or Facebook before! At 40% you can really stock up on some great items for your holiday and winter wardrobe. I am in love with these coats! I want them all! I’ve also picked my favorite sweaters, a couple cute tops, some boots, earrings, hats, jeans, pants, and skirts! I hope that you find something you love, too! Let me know which ones are YOUR favorites! I think I’ll be going for some of the coats and plaid pants myself! Happy Shopping! 🙂
