Giving Thanks

Thursday, November 26, 2009
Tip of the day: When in doubt of what to wear, wear black with one statement piece. You guys probably already knew that though.

Wearing Collection B faux leather jacket ($55), leopard print scarf ($7), DownEast Basics shirt (gift from my MIL), Gap cardigan ($12), J Brand jeans ($158), MIA brogues ($43).

I made my husband watch New Moon with me last night. He said he'd watch it with me if he sees the first one first. And so he did! I am embarrassed to say I am a closet Twilight fan. There. It's out.

Anyone going shopping for Black Friday? I'm not. Sleep is more important to me than shopping right now. Maybe next year..or something. Good luck to those who are getting up in the wee hours of the morning.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving! I like the different textures of the outfit—makes all-black more interesting. :) Plus of course that great scarf. I'm planning on avoiding the shopping crowds as much as possible!

  5. I'm a closet Twilight fan too. Well not closet really, but I try to not show how enthused I am about it....

    I never go shopping on Black Friday, it was always more of my mom and my sister's thing.

    and you are so right! Statement piece with black or more neutral clothes is always a good idea!

  9. I'm seriously envious of your great style. And it's like you're not even trying!

    I'm sleeping too - although I admit, if I had more money, I just might brave the masses.

  18. You look lovely in all black. I love that you added the leopard print scarf. It goes perfectly.

    I didn't go out shopping today... I have zero patience when it comes to crowds of people and long lines. Haha! I'll definitely try and snag some Cyber Monday deals though!

  19. I think I'll finalize my Amazon shopping cart (admittedly, may have to put in another order before Christmas, but with free shipping...who cares?)...but nope, I usually say no thank you to Black Friday outside the comfort of my own room.

    Like the pop of animal print! And whoa to the snow---we had a bit yesterday morning but it melted almost immediately.

  20. i restrained myself from black friday, too...but i'm sure i won't be able to show the same restraint come "cyber monday"...
