This week Chelsea and I are taking on Black Friday! I'm definitely not a "get up at 3:00 and shop all day" kind of girl, but I do like to go out for a couple of hours to try to snag up a few deals. When it comes to Black Friday I think it's important to think about what you wear. Here are some of my thoughts:
- To me, there's nothing worse than being too hot inside with a coat, but freezing outside, because you don't have a coat, so wearing a puffer vest is perfect.
- I also think it's important to consider what you're shopping for. If you're looking for boots, you should wear skinny jeans so you can make sure they work with the jeans. Trying to find tall boots while wearing bootleg or flare jeans just doesn't work well.
- Same thing goes for shirts, if you're on the look out, don't wear multiple layers, it will make changing in the dressing room no fun. Keep it simple with a sweater and camisole.
- Comfy shoes are important too, these boots are Borns, so they are super comfy for being on my feet all day.
I'm super excited about today's outfit. Recently I made made the (ten minute) trek to our brand new outlet mall, and if you follow me on Instagram you saw the loot I happily found at Gap and J.Crew Factory. I've been working to create some more put together casual looks and pinning quite a few too, so when we went to the outlet I had casual looks on he brain. I was excited to find this sweater at J.Crew Factory, the back is green and it has ELBOW PATCHES! I'm only slightly excited about this..... I also knew I wanted a vest like this. I wasn't crazy about Target's option when I saw it in person, and and the J.Crew Factory version (not online) was still $108. Luckily, Gap had an option I really liked (sold out online) and it was 50% off due to the grand opening.

Necklace: Stella and Dot same
