Black Friday Purchases

Black Friday Purchases 2016

I am happy to report to did most of my Black Friday shopping from the comfort of my own couch.  I shopped Anthropologie, Bloomingdale's, and Benefit.  I ventured out into the world in order to shop Bath & Body Works and TJ Maxx.  I snag Bath & Body Works' VIP tote every year because it's chock full of goodies for just $25 (like $115 worth of product, plus the tote!). It makes a great secret santa gift.  I also popped into TJ Maxx because I heard they were majorly restocking their Runway section.  While I didn't find any new arrivals I was willing to shell out the cash for, the clearance rack was bursting with beauties.  I was able to pick up a dream item of mine: a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress!  And for only $60!

What great sales did you shop this weekend?

Floral Leggings and Chambray

I am not good with "fall" colors.  I just really really love bright colors.  Case in point: these floral leggings.  I do love a good cozy sweater and anything maroon, but I just can't get away from bright pinks and blues.  At least I paired them with a fall-appropriate top.  BUT, chambray is really kind of an all year round thing for me.  Oh well.

Printed Ted Baker and a Sarah Cardigan

I know I've talked a lot about LulaRoe here on the blog over the past few weeks.  But, here I go again.  My newest favorite piece is the Sarah cardigan.  One of the things I love about LulaRoe is that you can mix the budget friendly pieces with more expensive pieces.  This Sarah cardigan paired with my $300 Ted Baker dress quite nicely.  Except, I got this dress off the clearance rack at Nordstrom Rack for $100.  So, this outfit is just all budget-friendly pieces.  Forget everything I have just typed.

Let's move on to the tights.  It's that time of year when I have to roll out my massive collection of tights and can finally throw away my razors.  Berkshire was nice enough to offer me tights to add to my collection.  Berkshire's collection is made to fit all shapes and sizes.  They also offer a wide range of control top tights, which are (dare I say it) comfier than the Spanx brand.  And I can attest that I wore these all day and didn't get any form of a wedgey.   Berkshire is offering my readers 15% of their order with code "blogger15."

P.S.  I know I have been on an extended blogger hiatus.  A vacation and then an inability to recover my work life after said vacation is to blame.  I will be back next week with a more regular schedule and the link up!
