Each Friday, we like to bring you our absolute favorite finds of the week! Today we are getting in the holiday spirit with lots of red and green, a touch of sparkle, a little plaid, along with the prettiest party dress picks and the bucket bag of our dreams (on major markdown)! And because we figure that you, like us, plan on lounging in pajamas on Christmas morning, we’ve picked out a few of our must have picks and a holiday robe pretty enough to wear out!

1. Schoolhouse is having a SUPER SALE - 15% off everything through Saturday. We have this buffalo check throw at home and we love how it keeps us so stylishly warm. Since this sale is so rare, if you’ve had your eye on a few bigger items (we love this light fixture and this sofa), now may be the time to splurge. And let’s not forget this adorable table lamp that looks like it would sit on Santa’s desk.

2. We are loving some of the jackets that are out right now at Nordstrom. Whether it’s a plaid puffer or this fresh wool midi coat (currently 40% off!), we feel you can’t go wrong in a jacket toned perfectly for the season.

3. Cue a full-on happy dance, because Neiman Marcus is having an incredible sale right now! These Manolo Blahnik pumps are in our cart (currently marked down to $618) and of course the perfectly pink party dress shown above is, too. The women’s and men’s designer sale is HOT and things are going fast, so we suggest you hop over there now!

4. Another sale, and this one is just in time: JCrew is running a bundle of deals including up to 50% off pajamas! We can see ourselves lounging around for days in these comfy vintage-inspired PJs, and this “Sweet Dreams” short set would make a great gift. Love a good plaid ensemble? JCrew has got you with these plaid pajamas, this Stewart tartan funnel neck top, and these stretch wool crop pants. Plus, use the code SNUGGLE to score 40% off your purchase of $200 or more to get an even better deal.

5. Travel in style with this classically handsome Weekender Tote from Paravel. Personalized, we think this could be the perfect gift for the Jetsetter or college student on your list. See more of our gift ideas here.

6. We’ve got our eye on the Eleanor Mules from Tory Burch in each color - so party perfect. Same goes for the Penelope Cap-toe D’orsay Pumps in shell pink/black (shown above) and navy/black. And we always love a good metallic mini-bag, like this one that comes complete with a sophisticated touch of holiday sparkle.

7. It’s party season, and we’ve got a few favorite dresses picked this week. You all went crazy for this dress last week on our Instagram page, and it sold out! It’s now back in-stock and you can grab this gorgeous red dress here. We also love this jewel-toned purple midi-dress as well as this starlet-style crepe dress from Net-a-Porter. Don’t rule out a dress coat as your party frock Vilshenko's 'Margo' coat is based on a vintage wallpaper the designer unearthed at a flea market and we are obsessed.

8. On the run? You’ll catch us getting work done in a pair of Vans classic slip ons, a cozy sweater (we love this fair-isle and this jeweled-number), and a pretty cross-body purse like this one from Tory Burch.

9. Need a few great host/hostess gifts? Pick up a special ornament or one of these gorgeous candles in multiple quantities and have them on hand so that you can check hostess gifts off your list for the season.

10. Also top of mind for us this week: a 2019 planner (love this one from Minted); this blue and white jar set, stool, and lamp (all of which fit right in with our decor); and these gorgeous wood and glass ball disc earrings from Saks Fifth Avenue.
