Y’all. THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE ALL BEEN TRAINING FOR. And pushing & shoving for Black Friday deals is so 2003, guys. Light a fire, throw on that Snuggie, and get your holiday shopping DONE like the professional shopaholic, I mean, BOSS that you are.

I’ve scoured the internet for the BEST Black Friday deals around. I’m wearing two of my personal favorites in the photo above (hi Rails top and Stuart Weitzman boots!). You know what’s really fun? To watch them go WAY on sale AFTER YOU BUY THEM AND WEAR THEM ALL OVER THE PLACE.

Don’t be like me.

Sherri’s Steps for a Successful Black Friday

Step One: Click on the item above.

Step Two: Just go ahead and click on ALL the items above. You know you want to.

Step Three: Tell yourself that you are purchasing this for your mother/sister/friend. *WINK

Step Four : Mentally comment on what great taste your mother/sister/friend has in fashion.

Step Five: Get those Black Friday deals, and remind yourself that when it is on SALE, it is also not free.

Step Six : Congratulate yourself on being SO FRUGAL and shopping for OTHERS. (*wink, WINK)

Step Seven: Go watch Love Actually with some hot chocolate for the 1,137 time. You’ve earned it.

Happy shopping y’all,

levi’s sherpa trucker jacket (on sale!) | Zara dress | rag and bone boots | tom ford sunglasses | photos by jnellyphotography

Guess what y’all? It’s apparently already #BlackFriday. (shhhh don’t tell the stores #Thanksgiving hasn’t happened yet. They don’t need to know that.)  It seems like the sales start earlier and earlier every year, and I AM HERE FOR IT. I say, let’s give lots of thanks, while also scoring lots of deals. For which I will give thanks. See how that works?

So, because I love you guys, and because I want to help you (say it together) save money by spending it, here are my top five ways to make the most of #blackfriday and #cyberweek.

1. Check RATMJ.com often for all of my favorite sales, sale picks, and just general ridiculousness.

2. Get over your LIKEtoKNOW.it aversion, and download the freaking app already! I’m not sure I know any other way to shop now, it’s THAT easy and convenient. And also dangerous. But I’m a risk-taker like that.

3. Scroll IG. Like and screenshot all your favorite #bloggers and #influencers with wild (and THANKFUL) abandon.

4. Head to your LTK app, where all of your favorites are now in one convenient place, so that you can organize them into one killer wishlist. (Or just go ahead and buy them, Moneybags, jeez.)

5. Send that wishlist to your significant other. And then “forget” that you sent it, and obnoxiously send it again a week or so later. Which he WILL LOVE, BECAUSE CLEARLY YOU ARE JUST TRYING TO BE HELPFUL, AND COULD HE PLEASE STOP ROLLING HIS EYES AT YOU LIKE THAT? #theylikeitwhenwehelpthem

And now, without further boring you to tears with my endless lists ado, here’s a list of my personal favorite sales happening now. TWO things I’m wearing above are currently on sale (HI BELOVED WHITE BOOTS AND SHERPA JACKET!), and all the shoppers said AMEN.

You know how, when Nordstrom has a sale, you never know about it? Because no one on social media EVER mentions it?

*rolls eyes so hard they fall out of her head.

*Picks them up and puts them back in again, because it is my mission and duty to make Nordstrom love me, buy one of every thing, give John a heart attack INFORM you guys of important ways to wreck your credit score.

And I take that duty very seriously. Ish.

These are all my sale favorites, and they aren’t NOT all sitting on a UPS truck bound for my house. They definitely AREN’T NOT.

Listen. I deserve it this time. My sweet, precious four year old, who is supposed to LOVE ME AND ONLY ME FOREVER (obviously normal and healthy boundaries here, stoplookingatmelikethat), just informed me that he HAS A GIRLFRIEND. So I’ve been cry-shopping for the last hour, and therefore making totally WISE AND NECESSARY purchases.

And now you can too.

Just clickety click on the images above, and you’ll be linked straight to all the goodness your heart (and credit card) can take. I’m fancy like that.

Should you start to feel guilty, just remember that you are the picture of financial health, as you are obviously saving money by spending it. Because it was on sale. #sherrimath

And also because BO HAS A GIRLFRIEND. #sherrilogic

Until next time,

Veronica Beard dress | free people fanny pack | Marc Fisher boots | Zara teddy bear coat (similar here) | photos by JNelly Photography

*Disclaimer : Despite what the photos above may have led you to believe, this post is NOT actually about how to wear every available trend at the same time.

You know how you sometimes accidentally on purpose buy all these dresses, because you think your life is fancy. And then, you remember that YOU ARE NOT FANCY. And that you only buy dresses because they will probably make you look just like the model wearing them. (Spoiler alert: They won’t.)

Anyone else? I mean, it’s like my brain forgets for a second that 95% of the time, I’m reaching for sweats, OR sweats that masquerade as real pants. (Looking at you, joggers. And thank you for your service.)

The other 5% of the the time, I might actually have the chance to fancy up and wear a dress. But then I remind myself that dresses aren’t comfortable, warm, or even practical. And I try to fancy up my boyfriend jeans instead.

Anyway, there are (self-imposed and not at all real) rules, and then there are exceptions. And those exceptions are called sweater dresses, my friends. They’re comfy. They’re generously sized, and they are warm. You wanna slay the Thanksgiving game? (You know, after you give all the thanks.) WEAR A SWEATER DRESS. People will be all, whoa look at Susan, she’s killing it in that sweater dress!

And then you’ll be all, I may LOOK fancy, but I can also eat an entire pumpkin pie, and nobody will know. Muahahahahahaha.

(I mean, they might realize when there’s no pumpkin pie left, but you can just distract them with your pretty dress.)

Please enjoy this roundup of my favorite sweater dresses in the game right now. And by enjoy, I may or may not mean treat yo’ self. (We all know I do.)

Until next time,

bb Dakota sweater | free people flares | Marc Fisher booties | noonday bracelet | tom ford sunglasses | photo by JNelly Photography *$9.50 of each bracelet purchased through this link goes directly to the medical bills of a 28 year old newlywed woman battling stage 4 brain cancer.

Someone once told me, “blondes should never wear yellow.” After a SAY WHAT, followed by a HOW DARE YOU, it became my mission to find a flattering yellow for blondes. Specifically, blondes who aren’t actually blondes, and who also have the skin tone of a piece of notebook paper.

It me.

Anyway, I love yellow and all it’s iterations, but every time I reach for it, I hear that little voice reminding me that blondes can’t pull off yellow. (Coincidentally, it’s the same little voice that likes to remind me that I’m NOT a size 2 and that I’m NOT in my early 30’s.)

In other words, it is RUDE and needs to SIT DOWN.

Regardless of what trash opinions have been thrown your way about yellow and your own ability to wear it, guess what? WE CAN WEAR WHATEVER WE WANT. And if there’s ONE color to incorporate into your wardrobe this fall, it’s this mustard yellow. (Side note, I refer to this color as mustard. Others may refer to it as marigold. John refers to it as, WHY ARE THERE SO MANY NAMES FOR YELLOW?)

I’m kind of loving this fuzzy, yellow, big Bird vibe I’ve got going, but if Big Bird’s not your thing, here are some other yellow favorites for your shopping enjoyment.

Rage Against the Mom Jean by Sherri Dickens - 9M ago

click on any photo above to shop, or just send this entire post to your significant other. THEY LIKE IT WHEN WE HELP THEM.

It’s officially November y’all! Otherwise known as The Month In Which Sherri Plans to Blame Everything on the Time Change.

Including but not limited to mood swings, overspending, forgetting things (like her budget and how to fold laundry), and her overall state of general disorganization.

(See also: her tendency to speak in third person.)

Anyway, pre-Thanksgiving November can feel a little dreary, so I very thoughtfully put together this list of November necessities. As in I THOUGHT it might help to start throwing some hints at John now. And, as the basic principles of #sherrimath state: If I call it a necessity, it also makes it free. (No.) At least in my mind. (It does not.)

Finally, if this roundup leads you to believe that I will be spending all of November in a big pile of COZY, Netflixing in my pajamas and a blanket, well then….that is absolutely accurate.

And hey, I can totally rock a killer nude lip while I do it.

Until next time,

If ever in life it’s possible to wear what is essentially a Snuggie, then I am ALL IN. Bo is obviously VERY EXCITED.

In case you missed last year’s Halloween post, not only is it one of my most popular posts of all time, it also tells you why Halloween and I will never be BFF. Go read it. I’ll love you forever.

Sometimes you wanna Pinterest up an amazing, creative Halloween costume that impresses all of Instagram YOUR SWEET CHILDREN, who, have apparently "always wanted a fun mom that dresses up for Halloween."

Good to know.

But then, other times you just wanna justify those new moto boots you bought. Or that camo jacket you’ve been eyeing. Or the red ringmaster coat that a certain someone said was too “extra,” but you just KNEW that one day there would be a highly popular movie about a musically gifted dreamer who opens his own circus. Or ya know. Something like that.

Mainly, let’s Halloween, but also shame our husbands for questioning whether we “really needed that new leather jacket,” and other such nonsense. (Besides, he should know by now that we always need that new leather jacket.)

Since HALLOWEEN IS VERY RUDE AND ON A WEDNESDAY THIS YEAR, here are a few ideas straight from your closet.

(And if they aren't yet in your closet, then you can’t be held responsible because you NEEDED A COSTUME, and therefore they are free.)

I’m dressing up as Delusional Shopaholic for Halloween.

The Moto Jacket (aka The Biker Chic)

I sincerely hope by now that you own a leather jacket (black is preferable here), but if you don’t, then get thyself to your store of choice ASAP. Add black jeans, a black tee, and some black boots. You are now either a super angsty teenager, or a biker chick. (This is AG’s Halloween costume, by the way. She thinks it’s so cool . I think it makes her look like e a teenager, so I have to go cry and obsessively look at her baby videos now. Bye.)

The Camo Jacket

Let’s all pretend to be military badasses this year. Don’t worry, John says I’ve already perfected my drill sergeant voice because HE IS SO HILARIOUS THAT WAY. *Rolls eyes super hard and wishes for an eyeroll button on her keyboard.

My friend Robin is responsible for this idea (HI ROBIN!) and she said to add a big ol’ statement necklace to represent dog tags. Which means I need to go shopping right now, byeeeeeee.

*Disclaimer : Camo leggings, joggers, t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc would ALL work here, just wear a solid black or white top, and that new necklace you’re on your way to buy. Rounding up a few Camo options because I’m an enabler.

Fringe or Flares (let’s be honest, it’s both)

Guys. grab a fringe ANYTHING, throw it on with some flares, and you are an unmistakable hippie chick? Flower child? I have no idea what to call this costume, but I am here for it.
For those who are missing flares or fringe in their closets, first of all, HOW DARE YOU? Second of all, you KNOW I’ve got you covered. (P.S. this costume justifies basically the entire inventory of Free People, just FYI.)

Plaid Skirt

Add a white shirt, and you are now Cher from Clueless. Or Britney circa Baby One More Time. BOOM. *Heads over to Amazon to find a yellow plaid skirt immediately.

What are some options from your closet? Or did you make your family-themed costume a month ago? If so, you rock, and btw, did you want to Pinterest me up a costume real quick?

Until we survive the inevitable sugar hangover that is Thursday next time,

Rage Against the Mom Jean by Sherri Dickens - 9M ago

ASOS shoes (all-time fave list for sure!) | ASOS floral culottes (similar here) | madewell tee | tom ford sunnies

If you’ve been around for awhile, you know my love for ASOS runs deep. Not only are the prices really affordable (for the most part), ASOS is so on point, trend-wise. Add to all that a discount code for 15% off EVERYTHING (WOW15), and well…..your purchase is basically free. Ish.

#sayitalltogether #sherrimath

Anyway, I’ve pulled together my ASOS top 20, a large portion of which is heading to my house right this very minute. Unless you are John, in which case it is not.

Ish.

basic white tee | denim jacket (wearing a small for reference) | floral skirt (wearing a size 6) | outfit c/o amazon fashion | fab’rik shoes (similar here) | tom ford sunglasses

*Finds out J.Crew Mercantile is available on Amazon.

*Races John to the credit cards before he can put them through his shredder.

*Laughs evilly at the look on John’s face when he realizes I’ve got those bad boys memorized.

It’s always been high-quality, but remember when J.Crew used to be a bit more, ahem, AFFORDABLE? And you know how now, when you browse the J.Crew website, the prices hurt your feelings? (Not to mention your bank account?)

Well, y’all. Let me introduce you to J.Crew Mercantile. It’s basically what would happen if J.Crew’s Bestseller category had a baby with it’s Factory line. And the result was a beautiful, inexpensive, fashion baby.

(No. I don’t know why I’m like this.)

Here’s the gist : all of our J.Crew Favorites. At essentially Factory prices. And here’s the best part (lean in close): IT’S ALL AVAILABLE ON AMAZON WITH FREE TW0-DAY PRIME SHIPPING!!!

But, Sherri, I don’t understand. How can I get an actual J.Crew denim jacket for $60? And the J.Crew basic white tee for $12.50? WHAT IS THIS LIFE?

And all I can say is I’m HERE FOR IT. Actually, I can ALSO say that I’ve now purchased approximately half the entire J.Crew Mercantile line, because as we all know, Amazon is for necessities. Making my new coat A NECESSITY.

#fashionalization

See below for my current Mercantile favorites, available via the nice people at Amazon Fashion. Kindly ignore how this is all I will be wearing from now on, pleaseandthankyou.

one | two | three | four | five | six

seven | eight | nine | ten | eleven | twelve

Guys, what do y’all think? Tell me your favorites, and whether you are as flabbergasted as I am by these prices.

Also tell me how we can use “flabbergasted” in more sentences. #mkaythanks

Until next time,
