The Tiny Heart: Black Friday Shopping Outfit

Black Friday Shopping Outfit

Target Puffer Vest//Mng by Mango Striped Sweater//Kohl's Houndstooth Scarf//Lulu Quilted Crossbody Bag//Corso Como Riding Boots

Black Friday shopping requires an outfit that is comfy and warm. I'd wear a puffer vest and a striped sweater with a houndstooth scarf (for some fun pattern mixing) to stay cozy. I hate carrying around a heavy winter coat, so the puffer vest is a nice alternative. I like to keep my hands free for searching through the racks, so a crossbody bag is a must! Plus it's good in case you have to fight over that last sweater in your size. (Kidding!). I went with flat riding boots since your feet may hurt after standing in those long lines.

After working retail a few years ago, I have seen the other side of Black Friday shopping. And let me tell you, I saw some crazy customers! Personally I'd rather shop from the comfort of my own home for Cyber Monday and not deal with the crowds and the insanity.

Will you be doing Black Friday shopping?

  8. I haven't decided if I'll be doing any Black Friday shopping. If I do, it'll definitely be later in the day. I'm not one to fight through serious crowds!

  9. Yes! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has been planning my outfit already. I'm going for cute and comfy since I always run into tons of people I know when out.

  10. I worked in retail for a bit on year and had the displeasure of working on Black Friday. It was awful. I pretty much haven't left my house on a Friday after Thanksgiving since! This is a super cute shopping outfit though.

  12. What a cute outfit! I haven't decided yet if I'm willing to brave the Black Friday crowds. I think it's going to be a game time decision.

  13. It's funny that you plan an outfit for Black Friday shopping as if it were an expedition to some adventure. Which I guess it is.

  24. I've never done Black Friday shopping, crowds of people just aren't my thing. I agree with you, online shopping is the way to go! I am loving that crossbody bag though! :)

  25. Love the colour of those jeans. We don't have Black Friday here in the UK, we just have the Boxing Day sales & they are mental! Like you I used to work in retail & have seen some crazy things go down in the sale haha.

  35. Great idea! I'll definitely be braving the crowds. I think it's fun! A puffer vest is SUCH a good idea, but I don't have one... BOO. That might need to be my first purchase on Black Friday, haha! ;) The Thanksgiving outfit from my post today, will have to be my Black Friday outfit, since we'll be up at my mom's and leave from there. Hopefully its warm enough!
