My Favorite Time of the Year and I’m Not Talking About Christmas


Now I know everyone’s favorite time of the year is usually around the holidays, and I know why: the decorations, the holiday parties, the excuse to eat whatever you and not start your diet till after the new year’s. I get it; I really do. But my favorite time of the year is the week right after Christmas when stores have their annual end-of-the-year sale. That is my favorite holiday—nothing I love more than seeing things marked down to 50 and 75% off their original price. 

My two all-time favorite stores in the whole world are Zara and H&M, about 95% of the time, and I am usually wearing something from either of these stores. These two stores are my go-to stores because it's fairly priced and they always have the latest trends, and usually their clothes will last me a few years. It's truly a win all around the board. But every year, the day after Christmas, Zara has their annual end-of-the-year sale, and IT’S TO DIE FOR! They only have a sale twice a year, and when they do, they go hard. Literally, every single thing is on sale, and it's a madhouse. I usually take the day off work for this event. I wish I were kidding, but I’m not. And I end up spending hours in the store just looking through everything making sure I don't miss the perfect dress or blouse that I just have to take home with me. They also have a sale in the summertime, and it isn't quite as big as their sale after Christmas, but a sale is a sale, and we all know how much I love a sale. 

Luckily, when it comes to H&M, they usually have more than two sales a year, but just like Zara, their biggest sale is usually the one after Christmas. They usually don't have as big of a sale as Zara, but they still have a good collection, and I can guarantee you that you will leave with a few great pieces. And liked I referenced earlier, they have more than two sales a year, so there is a good chance that you can walk into H&M at any time and find a sale section. I just talked about my personal favorite stores but also stores like Dillard’s, Macy’s, and Forever 21 have big after Christmas sales that you will for sure find some great deals.
