Black Friday purchases

If you're lucky, you saw the whole Black Friday recap on Snapchat. I *thought* I downloaded that whole snapped video that I could share on my blog also, but apparently I only downloaded one 10 second video and not the entire recap. (Insert crying emoji here.) So, I have been agonizing about how to share my Black Friday purchases with you! Anyone can share stock photos with you - I love being able to share real life outfits with you, or at minimum, a flat lay that I've styled. There's no way I could capture real life styled outfits of every piece I purchased within one post! But, at the same time, I do think there is value in sharing my entire haul, stock photos or not, in case it does spark some interest. Since today is Cyber Monday, I figured I needed to recap everything for you today and not later in the week and risk you missing out on a good sale find!

Sunnies: TOMS | Scarf: V.Fraas from Dillards (similar here) | Necklaces: Kendra Scott here and here | Bag: JCrew Factory | Vest: JCrew Factory | Sweater: Express | Rings: Charming Charlie (here and similar here) | Leggings: Express (similar) | Boots: Dolce Vita (limited sizes) (option here)

The best way I thought I could keep you up to date on all my purchases was to simply create a dedicated blog page for it - you can see it at the top left, just under my blog header. Or, you can simply click HERE. I've already updated it to include some pullover sweaters and jeans I ordered from Gap just tonight. If you have any questions about sizing of anything - please let me know! 

I didn't waste any time wearing my new purchases! Our nephew had his 3rd birthday party over the weekend, so leggings and my new boots seemed like the perfect outfit! I was soooo happy to find this scarf! Dillard's had an entire table full of blanket scarves for 40% off, so I scoured it for the perfect color, and you can never go wrong with olive. I'm not seeing this actual color on their website, but Heather and Anna were able to find this exact scarf after I snapped about it, so maybe you can get lucky in store also! They ended up cutting one in half and sharing it with each other, but mine is whole! It's honestly not as blanket-y as some of my other scarves; I think it's the perfect weight.

I ordered this sweater as soon as Express' sale went live last week, and I'm pretty happy with it. The color is gorgeous, and although it's lightweight, it's still cozy. I am wearing a small and it covers all my bits quite well.

And these boots!!!! They've been all over Instagram, really ever since the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, and to a certain degree, that's kind of why I've been trying to ignore the fact that I love them. Well, there's a reason they are everywhere - they really are kind of perfect. Sizes are pretty scarce, and I wouldn't be surprised if they were sold out by the time this post goes live! I was so happy to see them hanging on the sale rack in my size! I'm pretty sure they were one of only two pairs in store. I had a ninja grip on them until they were paid for and in my bag!!

I would definitely say that Black Friday was a success. This whole weekend was quite productive and relaxing! We did so much, yet I feel rejuvenated and ready for the rest of the holidays! I even went through a ginormous closet overhaul - taking pictures of things to list on eBay and everything! Sad the workweek is back so soon, but counting down to more time off at Christmas! Have a great Cyber Monday and don't forget to peep out my sale purchases HERE!

  7. I knew I should have ordered those darn boots to try again. I tried this summer during the anniversary sale and had a hard time getting them on/off but it may have just been the summer heat. They look so amazing. I ordered a Vince Camuto pair so we will see how I like them.
