If you’re deciding to brave the stores for some Black Friday shopping, you’ll probably have two things in mind: warmth and comfort. If you live in a cold climate, it is no fun freezing in between stores or in lines. Granted, this outfit may not quite be warm enough for sub-zero temps, but I’ll just pretend for this scenario that it’s not quite that cold.
You’ll also want to be comfortable. You’ll probably want to wear a coat that isn’t too bulky; something you can move around in as you search for your big deals. Also, a cross body bag that isn’t too large will also be beneficial! This outfit is pretty casual with the boots, jeans, scarf, and top. To embellish the look I thought I’d add a bit of glitz with the earrings, and a simple two chevron ring.
I decided I wanted to start a new regular segment on my blog by utilizing Polyvore. I call this “Fantasy Wardrobe Friday.” Basically, it’s a collage of pieces I wish I had in my closet, hence the words fantasy wardrobe. What woman doesn’t dream of more clothes in her closet?
Polyvore is a stylists dream. A fashion lover can go to the site, create an account, and choose from millions of items from thousands of designers to create a style board. If you see a clothing online that you want to see in a collage, you can also use the “Clip to Polyvore” button for your browser. It’s just a fun thing to play with. I admit, this is a bit of a sorry looking collage. Honestly, I haven’t worked much with Polyvore, so this is new to me! This will not be the regular format. I’m still in the experimentation stage. The products are linked using the ShopSense publisher website. The site creates affiliate links and widgets that bloggers can use for their websites. I am playing around with using that as well.
Anyway, about the clothes…I was going to a Fall outdoors look that was classy and edgy at the same time. The coat is a classic, larger scale, black and cream plaid. I thought the red lambswool scarf was a nice pop of color since I stayed with mainly black or gray in the accessories and pants. The black booties aren’t likely the most practical for chilly weather, but since this is a fantasy wardrobe, it doesn’t matter, right?
Admittedly, this is another short post because I have been trying to get a recipe post together. Those take more time for me to plan and compose. Yesterday I got groceries and planned out the execution of the dish. Since I can’t physically take the photos or cook the food, I direct everything step by step. I got that done last night as well! All the photos need to be edited and the content written now!
