Black Friday

Hope you all had memorable Thanksgivings filled with food, friends, and family. And of course, lots of rest! If you didn't see my post from yesterday (I know I wasn't online) check out my Christmas cards! Cheesy goodness :)

I know today is all about the best deal but I don't do Black Friday. I'm not a big fan of shopping in the first place, so when you add in a bunch of crazy consumers - some of which have camped overnight - who are prepared to take out anyone who stands in their way of a sale, that just sounds like a recipe for a miserable experience. For those of you who brave the crowds, more power to you!

Luckily I have all of my Christmas shopping done as of earlier this week! My parents' big gift are tickets to see the Chargers (dad's team) play the Broncos (mom's team) in San Diego this Sunday. Somehow it'll be my first professional football game. We really need an LA team again...

Anyways, if I were to go shopping on Black Friday, here's an outfit I'd sport. Notice the comfort factor?

Casual Attire




Now that I've put together this outfit, I kind of really want to recreate it in real life! Are you a fan?

I'm also linking up for Plenty to Be THANKful For blog challenge. Today's theme is Black Friday and leftovers. I'm thankful that I won't be experiencing Black Friday this year but WILL instead be chowing down on my fav leftovers like turkey, fried green beans covered in garlic and vinegar (so much better than it sounds), mashed potatoes, and cheesecake!

I like the outfit you put together and how there is a pop of army green in it. It is a perfect casual look!

I don’t do Black Friday either. It’s just not worth it to save a few bucks. Prices are low and sales remain all month long. I'm staying home today and shopping online. I love the outfit! You could wear that any day! My dad makes fried green beans like that but adds bacon. Soooo good!

Meghan said...

Oooh, I am dying for that outfit - especially that sweater! Tres gorgeous!

Oh to Be a Muse said...

that's a great gift for your parents!

i'm not doing any black friday shopping--too much chaos.

Kimberlee said...

I'm not a fan of Black Friday or crazy holiday shopping. I hate crowds (even though I live in crowded Manhattan lol!). Looks like a cozy outfit :)

Claire Kiefer said...

I'm also abstaining from Black Friday with one exception--I'm gonna look at Old Navy's website for Saints gear thanks to your recommendation! :) I am soooo grateful for leftovers--yum! I cooked my tail off yesterday, and it's nice to reap the benefits. :)

Haha, I love shopping but so not today!!!! Don't want to end up in the hospital or so...so no thank you I'm staying home! Awww, have fun Sunday! And yes we need a team in LA...it gets boring...hahahahaha! :)

Susan said...

That looks like the PERFECT Black Friday outfit. I don't live in the U.S. so no shopping here...wondering if the deals really are THAT good?

Elle Sees said...

That's similar to what I wore on Black Friday! But I only went to Macy's in my local neighborhood so it wasn't so crowded but I definitely went for the comfort factor too lol.

Black Friday is all about comfort. I probably looked like a homeless person in the outfit I wore out shopping. Fried green beans sound yummy!

That was so sweet of you to get football tickets for your parents. I hope you had fun at the game!
