I know some of you have already gotten underway with your holiday shopping. I started ordering a few things online last week. I’m still debating whether or not I want to venture out on Black Friday once the turkey settles. But if I do decide to go, you can bet that I’ll be wearing something like this…
A THICK SWEATER – One thing that I can’t stand about shopping during the cooler months is having to schlep around winter coats and accessories. When I have the privilege of hitting up the stores by myself – meaning without kids – then I wear a thick sweater and leave my coat in the car. It limits the layers that I wear and keeps my outfit simple so that I can focus on tackling that shopping list.
SKINNY JEANS – I like to keep my outfits balanced. This means that if I wear something bulky, like a thick sweater on top, then I go with a more fitted bottom. Besides, skinny jeans – or leggings – are the only pants you should wear tucked into boots. Anything too baggy tucked into those knee-highs will give off a pirate appearance.
KNEE HIGH BOOTS – These boots are perfect for all the right reasons. They look great with skinny jeans and they heel is the perfect height for hours of shopping. Plus, this pair really helps protect me from the elements! They’re warm and slush or snow wipe off super easily.
CROSS-BODY BAG – No shopping outfit would be complete without a cross-body bag! How else can one conquer the stores without both of her hands?! I’ve been using this Phillip Lim for Target beauty a lot during the past few weeks. I love that it can be worn during the day for shopping, and then transitions nicely into my hand if I’m meeting up with friends at night. Gotta love a bag that can be worn multiple ways!
