With sale season in full swing, now is the time to spend
As I've gotten older, I've also gotten a little bit more practical with money. Not as practical as I should be, but practical nonetheless. I tend to save some of my Christmas money, or use it for adult things like groceries or train tickets, which 21-year-old me would never believe, but I also do use some of it to treat myself. After a holiday season of running around from stores to holiday parties and giving gifts, a little treat to yourself is the perfect way to start the year! What's even better is that many of the items you were eyeing for yourself while shopping for others are now on sale. Below, I've rounded up 12 of the items I'm lusting after right now.
Chloé Mily Medium Shoulder Bag
$1,365 via MATCHES FASHION
I just snagged a different Chloé bag on super sale (stay tuned to see!), but that doesn't stop me from wanting another. You can't really go wrong with a black bag, can you?
Saint Laurent Satin Bomber
$1,196 via Net-a-Porter
I am obsessed with silk bombers. I have three already—oops—and I don't see why I shouldn't add a fourth to my collection. It's also Saint Laurent, so it's kind of a no-brainer, if you know what I mean.
UGG Adirondack II Waterproof Boot
$180 via Nordstrom
I've wanted these winter boots literally every winter for the last three or four years, and I've never seen them on sale! These are both practical and stylish and if I'm going to buy anything on this list with my Christmas money, it will probably be these!
Mac Brush Set
$38 via Nordstrom
Back in the summer I was having some trouble with my skin, and I realized that it had been forever since I washed my makeup brushes. Many of them are on the older side too, so I'm ready to replace them and start the new year fresh. This set is a great value for five brushes, and they look pretty sitting on your countertop, too!
FRAME Cable-Knit Beanie
$85 via Net-a-Porter
It's currently barely above the single digits in NYC, and I'm still in the mode of shopping for winter. I'm obsessed with beanies and I love this cable-knit cream color one.
Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour
$1,445 via Saks
I've had this bag on my radar since I first knew of its existence, and every single time I see a version of it on sale somewhere, I almost always consider finally pulling the trigger and snagging it once and for all.
Elizabeth and James Cleo Earrings
$105 via Shopbop
I have been obsessed with statement earrings since the spring, which is a huge change from the me, who would previously only wear studs! I've slowly been getting more and more pairs, and I'd love to add this pair from Elizabeth and James to my collection.
Nike NikeLab Air Force 1
$83 via Net-a-Porter
I actually ordered these a couple of months back and really loved them. Unfortunately at the time, I was getting resort wear for my upcoming trip to Mexico and had no business shopping frivolously on other things I didn't need, so back these went. Now that they are on sale though I don't see a reason to deny myself!
Saint Laurent Black Velvet Mini City Backpack
$1,030 via SSENSE
I've been eyeing this for a while now, and it's finally gone on sale. It's just so downtown cool and edgy in the best possible way. I need it.
Ulla Johnson Amina Wool Sweater
$340 via Net-a-Porter
I love a good turtleneck, I love a good bell-sleeve, and most importantly, I don't usually love pink, but since I do in this situation, I think I need this. It's not black, and that says something.
Fendi Arrow Accent Sunglasses
$324 via Shopbop
The sun has barely shone in days and summer is nowhere in sight, but I feel like I need these as a reminder that warmer days will eventually come.
Adidas by Stella McCartney Climaheat Leggings
$105 via Net-a-Porter
I've been running regularly for over 7 years, so making resolutions to be healthier is never really on my radar. However, when I lose sight of why I love running, getting new workout gear always helps to push me out the door. These climaheat leggings are a MUST for running in the tundra that is New York!
