Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? I tend to pick things up here and there as I find them. And then usually on Black Friday I really get down to business. We keep it pretty low key and I don't buy for a ton of people which is nice, because, um, like we aren't millionaires. I'm always amazed when I hear reports on the news that the average family spends like $5,000 a year on Christmas. Um, seriously? My family would be in the Caribbean for 5 G's. Not encircled in overtired kids and wrapping paper. I've got priorities people. Ho, ho ho!
I never used to "get" Black Friday. But then you have kids and you realize that all that crap they are selling for super cheap-o on Black Friday is for parents playing Santa. So yes, I'll be at Target (for sure) and maybe some others snatching up toys in my pjs, I mean, 30/30 clothes.
I have to say this outfit came together well. I had imagined it, but we all know sometimes we imagine outfits that are flops in real life. But I loved this look. I felt so preppy I even busted out the pearls. Fake ones of course... my real pearls aren't so "blingy" and a lot more sentimental. These are Target pearls.
My girl Jackie inspired me to paint my nails (usually mine are clear or buff)... but girlfriend always has her nails painted - duly noted in Vegas and in her outfit shots. And she was talking about Essie's new colors and I needed a pick-me-up. So voila! Hot Cocoa nails. I rather like them!
Oh, and I lost my train of thought... but who is shopping on Black Friday? In the stores or online or both!?!?
If you are new around here... all deets and links for 30/30 pieces are HERE!
