Friendsgiving Outfit

Thanksgiving is done, December is here; it decided to bring the first snowfall of the year with it, but it turned to rain last night and no trace of white remains this morning.

I wish I could say I had the resolve to not partake in the Black Friday shopping frenzy, but that would have only been possible if I'd turned off my phone and computer all weekend. Instead, more packages are en-route to my door - at least a few are Christmas gifts!

This year I attended my first Friendsgiving with the New England Blogger Babes, and had such an enjoyable afternoon. I can see why this tradition has caught on - no one person is responsible for preparing a huge meal, which means that everyone, even the host, can relax a bit. We drank, we ate, we played games. No one argued about sweet potatoes. (I know it seems ridiculous, but somehow this side dish has become a point of contention at my family's Thanksgiving.)

I kept my outfit relatively casual for the occasion, pulling out some old pieces that haven't been worn in a while, including my grandmother's faux fur coat and this floral blouse I purchased for Thanksgiving in 2016. The velvet mules however, had just arrived from Loft and I was anxious for their first outing before it gets to cold for them to make any sense at all. Ah yes, making irrational shoe choices since 2008.

  3. Love that coat!! And it sounds like such a fun afternoon! I'm not sure if I've ever done a friendsgiving (That party at your place in Milford was for Christmas, right? Ha ha.)
    I did some shopping too, got some beauty products I don't really need (needed 1 but bought more to get a huge free sample pack), Christmas junk from Target (can't beat spend $100 get $50 off) and a gift for Christian's mom for NEXT Christmas. I thought of it for this year but then decided it would be better to see her open it so we'll send her something different this year. And a gift for Chrisitan, was only free shipping but I was going to get it anyway so saving $6 works for me!

  7. That coat is just amazing - I love it! I've done entirely too much online shopping this weekend myself (and yet I'm very excited for all my packages to arrive).

  8. What a cosy coat! The navy is so nice with the floral blouse! :)

    I was really good and avoided the sales - but having already finished my Christmas shopping helped, I had no excuse to look for others and then buy for myself, haha!

    While we do get a little into the Black Friday sales our biggest sales are boxing day and New Years so I am sure I'll cave a little then - I usually do, despite getting lots of exciting things for Christmas, haha!

    Hope that you are having a great start to your week! I posted my Annual Handbag Gift Guide if you want to check it out :)

  12. The cutest outfit!! Love your coat & flats!! And surprisingly, I bought zero things during black Friday - I meant too but I've been so busy with my new job that I kind of spaced out on the whole thing. Now I'm kicking myself. Haha!! xo
