Black Friday Outfit

Today’s an exciting day as it is the second in a series of link ups for the holidays. Our theme today is Black Friday, specifically what we’ll each be wearing. It will take a sale of massive proportions to pry me away from my home Friday and get me into a store. Most likely I’ll spend as much time in my pj’s as possible shopping online since that’s my jam.

I chose to share an outfit that will work for a variety of events I might engage in on Black Friday. Maybe we’ll head out to lunch, or the movies. I can’t be sure but I can count on this outfit to keep me comfortable and stylish doing whatever it is I decide.

This outfit is literally head to toe Old Navy! My booties (similar) are from a few years ago but are still pretty comfortable on these finicky feet of mine. My plaid top was purchased in October. I am in love with the colors in this top. It’s primarily green (’tis the season) but has a hot pink stripe in it. I bought this v-neck sweater to wear with it and my mid-rise Rockstar skinny jeans in this dark wash were purchased last Spring. It looks like they are on sale!!!! My absolute favorite Kendra Scott necklace goes with everything so it’s a no brainer to grab and throw on. When I’m shopping I like to use a crossbody bag so my hands are free to shop.

Black Friday shopping used to be so much fun. When my boys were little it was all about grabbing the toys they wanted at the best deals or getting them before they were gone. As they’ve gotten older shopping for them is much easier. What ended up happening was I’d find tons of perfect gifts for me! I’d come home with bags and bags of fabulous buys. It was crazy. A few years ago my husband and I put together a budget and I find it much easier to stick with if I avoid temptation. We don’t buy gifts for the adults in our respective families just the kids so there’s no reason for me to go out searching for a gift. My husband and I do exchange gifts – my list is usually a mile long while his is super short, lol.!
Now…are you ready for to check out the link up? I hope so!

Whitney: “As much as I love shopping, I am not a Black Friday shopper.  I prefer to sleep-in, eat Thanksgiving leftovers and avoid the major crowds.  I still love holiday shopping expeditions, though!  It’s fun to look festive but comfort is really key for a day of walking around and carrying shopping bags!”

Linda: “In Canada we are still going full out on Black Friday but I do like dressing a little festive knowing that you are enjoying a special Holiday. Wearing my new embroidered blazer from Target with a pair of plaid pants I have owned for a few years.I will not be hitting the sales on Black Friday but I will be thinking of all my American Friends enjoying this time with their families.”

Shelbee: “For Black Friday shopping at the mall, I must be warm and comfortable for waiting in outside lines.  But I also must wear enough layers to shed if I get too hot.  I chose a lightweight hoodie, stretchy jeggings, and flat boots for lots of walking.  I layered up with a leather jacket, hat, scarf, and gloves. Minimal jewelry to prevent snagging…just earrings and my wedding ring.  Let’s go shopping! “

Kellyann: “This is an outfit I’d wear if I was actually going shopping on Black Friday.  A crossbody bag is a necessity for me so my hands are free to shop! I want to be comfortable so I chose skinny jeans, a lightweight plaid shirt, and a v-neck sweater to keep me warm.  Knowing my Florida climate as I do, the sweater will come off by noon!  Right now I’m only planning on shopping online.  I want to spend as much time as possible with my boys and soak up all that I have to be thankful for.”

Jennie: “I rarely actually go to any stores on Black Friday and stick to shopping on my laptop, but this year I may actually visit our local outlet mall and catch some sales. A lightweight jacket, hat, and boots will keep me warm and comfortable throughout the day without extra bulk.”

Chrissy: “Black Friday has always been a fun shopping adventure to me. I can recall standing in crazy lines for Bath & Body Works candles and Air Freshner plug-ins. However, for the last 3 years my Black Friday shopping is now on “Black Tuesday or Wednesday” with my mother in law and sister in law in central Illinois. On official Black Friday you’ll find me traveling on the road back to GA with hubby and boys.”

Lee: “This year on Black Friday instead of running around spending money and buying things we don’t need I am going to volunteer.  I am apart of a local service league which holds an event called Christmas House which gives underprivileged children a new coat, 2 toys, and 2 new books for Christmas (or whatever holiday they celebrate).  In order to have the items to offer we work with other companies to raise money or get donations.  This year to get books we have partnered with Barnes and Noble (New Hope Commons Durham NC).  As part of our partnership we will ‘man’ the gift wrapping table.  So my black Friday will be spent wrapping gifts for shoppers at Barnes and Noble while spreading the word about Christmas House.  Head to my blog to learn more.”

Kristin: “Since I live in Germany, Black Friday isn’t as big of an occasion as it is in the States. This year I’m going to be shopping online so I can still get in on all of the sales! I’m always looking for great deals on expensive winter items like boots, coats, and cashmere.”

Kimberly: “I would wear something comfortable and dress in layers so I can take things off if its crowded or the stores are hot.  A lightweight/loose top, vest and scarf would complete my look.”

Ada: “This year on Black Friday I will be working and give or take I am going to be out and about for 12 hours straight so a comfy and warm outfit with black skinny jeans – still work-appropriate – a black long-sleeve wool tee and one of my long and cozy chenille cardigans will be what I will wear. I chose burgundy desert booties for comfort and a wool-blend blanket scarf to keep warm. My workplace is doing the “Simply Give” event this year on Black Friday. I will be doing a food-drive for families in need and after that a mittens+socks drive+deliver. Between all the driving and being in an out of my car, I wanted a layered look. I think my ‘Fall Uniform’ is also perfect for shopping on Black Friday since layers are a must.

Lizzie: “On Black Friday, I like to wake up super early to take my siblings on a shopping spree in our PJ’s. We have a lot of fun picking out presents for our family and making memories along the way.”

Monica: “Oh Black Friday, so many people get up so early to go shopping and I think it’s become its own holiday as well.  I like to be lazy Thanksgiving weekend and I’m not one of those people who wakes up early.  I worked in retail for about 10 years, so I like to sleep in and take my time shopping.  I usually can’t find anything on Black Friday besides certain electronics.  So my plans are to sleep in, and relax until I’m ready to shop.”

Michelle: “This outfit is totally ready for some Black Friday shopping. If you plan to shop online, then you will be cozy in this pullover and comfy leggings & if you plan to head out to stores, sneakers & a cross body bag are a must for a full day of shopping! Either way, go get those deals!”

Hope you enjoyed reading today!

    Wowzer…that is your color!!!! Love the plaid peaking out underneath and the booties are so perfect for a day buzzing around. I was told I must keep my list short this year and I am actually done what the hubs gifts..the boys another story. We are sooo far over on the house build, awe could build another house, lol, so Mr. Nine keeps saying the house is my gift, lol. Silly Boy! Love ya friend!

      Hahaha, I’m laughing that your house is your gift because I think old Mr. Rohr is thinking the same thing about my kitchen, ha! This is why I purchase of the majority of the gifts my husband gives me, lol. So far, my boys haven’t really committed to wanting anything. Nolan wants mechanical pencils, a new Yeti lid, no show socks, and a cookbook! Looks like they’ll be getting money. I’ll bet you all are having a wonderful week, isn’t it just the best having everyone under one roof for a bit?!
      You are just the best, sweet friend!

    I can’t believe this is head to toe Old Navy. You look fabulous, cute and comfortable…my all time favorite combination. While reading your post I could only nod my head in agreement. Especially when I got to the part about sales for you. Oh my goodness, the clothing sales are amazing and fun. Each year I tell my husband I need to save just for this weekend. lol. Anyway, I love your open and laid back schedule for Black Friday!

    • Kellyann
      November 21, 2017 / 4:39 pm

      Thanks Chrissy! Yes, I feel like I need a savings account set aside for all the sales! It’s the perfect time to replace pieces that are worn out or need updating, the sales are just so good. It’s hard to resist the temptation if I’m out so I won’t head out unless my husband (who is super disciplined) is with me!
      Have safe travels my friend!

    Pretty in pink sweet friend! Online shopping is now my jam too. I was just telling the girls yesterday how I use to get up and get out there first thing, but now I do the majority of my shopping online. (especially with the blog) I do like to get out for a little bit in the action and feel the energy though. You’ve pulled together a look for (m)any occasions and look adorable like always. Happy Tuesday…and please slow this week down. It’s going by much too quickly. XOXO

      Thanks sweet friend for all the love! Yes, please slow this week down! All I want to do is enjoy every moment and once Thursday gets here I’m afraid it will all go by so fast. I am so glad the days of getting up super early and heading out are over!

    How cute are you?! And I agree this fun, vibrant, bold-hued outfit would be perfect to do ANYTHING during Black Friday or all weekend long. The color of your sweater is perfect for Fall/almost Winter in Florida, too. And I agree with you: Black Friday isn’t what it used to be! Now it is more like Black Monday through Black Sunday lol. As I am typing this I just saw a JC Penney commercial letting us know that they open at 2.00 PM, which means their employees won’t get to celebrate. =(

    I am so happy and thankful that I got to meet you through blogging this year and that we will be collaborating through this long and beautiful holiday series. You are the best and always super cute and thoughtful!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Kellyann!

      Oh Ada, you are so sweet! Yes, I am so happy to get to know you and this whole world of blogging has brought me such blessings in the women I’ve met! You work so hard Ada, I am hoping you get some time off to relax and enjoy that family of yours. Your little Vivi is just so precious and such a little model, that girl knows how to strike a pose. She must keep you in stitches and on your toes all the time! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you do, I so appreciate it!

      Thanks Whitney! I was thinking the same thing, for a group of bloggers we aren’t really going shopping are we?! Ha! We’re too smart for that and the internet is so much easier. I hope you enjoy your day too with family!

    Oh my, what to wear for going shopping for what to wear, I really must get with the programme ! Seriously, your outfit looks so pretty and perfect for your cosy day with your handsome boys and your handsome hubby. Love the clarity of that pink and the subtle link to the check in the shirt. A beauty, as are you, Mrs R … and it’s official, The Photographer says you are very pretty!!!
    Happy Thanksgiving, and happy Thanksgiving weekend, hugs, x .

      Oh Mary, please tell The Photographer I am absolutely over the moon and pink in the face that he has said I’m pretty. Please thank him for me, you sure have a keeper in that one Mary! He takes your photos, mixes drinks, and gives compliments, lucky Lady Leoprint.
      Surrounded by all the testosterone of a home full of men makes it necessary for me to pile on as much pink as possible! I’m not sure what our day will entail but I’ll be loving every minute of it for sure.
      I so appreciate your well wishes my friend, now go and enjoy a drink with that charismatic husband of yours and have one for me!

    I love Old Navy. I have gotten so much stuff there this season. I love your sweater. Great color.

    I have really been liking green plaid shirts and even blue ones lately over the traditional red and black! How clever to add a pink v-neck sweater over it when it has a tiny bit of pink pinstripes!! I don’t really have anyone that wants to go Black Friday shopping with me and I don’t think I’d have fun shopping alone! I think I’ll stay home and do it online and save a ton of time and I’m not one that likes to miss out on sleeping! Lol!

      Since I get up so early to head to the gym my body is sort of programmed to wake around 3 (I’m actually typing this at 3:30am) but there’s a huge difference between getting up and heading out to shop and getting up and reading till I drift back off to sleep! The latter sounds so much better! Actually my husband was talking about heading out for something but he’ll have to go on his own, ha! The crowds honestly make me nervous and I am not aggressive at all.
      I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving Carrie!

    Oh my, Kellyann! Pink and plaid, you can’t go wrong with this amazing look! I love this outfit so much and nothing wrong with head to toe Old Navy! I have so many great Old Navy pieces in my closet and find that I am often dressed in all Old Navy as well. Another fun collaboration! Have a great Thanksgiving!

      Thanks Shelbee! Oh yes, Old Navy is occupying the majority of my closet these days! Anytime I can add a little pink (or in this case a lot of pink) I get a little extra pep in my step!
      Happy Thanksgiving beautiful!
