Why is it every year that the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas feels like it gets shorter and shorter? We make plans to shop early and get all of wrapping done by early December but here we are running around grabbing last minute cards and bottles of wine for the hostess. I have always loved everything about the holidays- the frantic shoppers, wrapping the perfect gift, decorating the tree, and baking! My sister and I used to go to the mall every year on the day before Christmas to get a new outfit for the occasion. It would be insane to find parking, then we would run through the mall like mad women trying to find a cute dress or skirt (usually at Forever 21 haha).
Like most of you, I did a lot of personal shopping on Black Friday, and most of it was online! I’m one of the crazies who goes out on Black Friday (another holiday tradition) but this year I did the shopping from the couch, in my PJs. Black Friday is a good time to try out some “trendier” items or websites you wouldn’t typically order from and that is exactly what I did. Boohoo.com was having a 40% sitewide sale so I browsed, and quickly added lots of fun items to my cart. This camel waterfall vest is not exactly trendy or wild but it is an item I have been interested in getting in my closet. I didn’t think it was something I would get a ton of wear out of but since it was SO cheap ($30), I figured I would give it a go. While the vest is not very good quality (at all), it does the job! Since I got it- I’ve found myself wearing it a few times a week! More about the quality- it’s basically a large piece of felt : / and some of the stitching is already coming undone after wearing it a half dozen times – so you’re basically getting what you paid for. I’ve mostly been wearing the vest with all black- black turtleneck and leather leggings, or my go-to J.Crew Tippi Sweater and black pants for a more polished look. I’ll share the look with a long sleeved dress and OTK boots soon! Can’t wait to show you guys the other goodies I got in my Boohoo order!
Happy Holidays to you and yours!
