Black Friday

Did anyone go shopping on Black Friday last week? If you're reading this, I hope you didn't get too injured, as a lot of people probably have ... Thankfully, I didn't get hurt, nor did my sister or mom! In fact, we had a successful trip. We didn't buy too much, but enough to not empty our bank savings. I bought a cute skirt from Anthropologie and a Christmas bath bomb from LUSH Cosmetics. However, I didn't have time to do a cute outfit idea photoshoot while shopping due to all the craziness. So instead, I took some pictures ahead of time at Summit Mall in Fairlawn, Ohio to show off a cute new outfit that's fit for Black Friday.   

Also, what better way to celebrate Black Friday than to wear a full on stylish black outfit, from top to bottom!

This is the first choker outfit that I’ve owned, and I’m in love with it. It’s from styleNmotion and is perfect just in time to wear to holiday parties. Why not even wear it while Black Friday shopping? There’s no reason as to why you shouldn’t!   

I love the way the choker looks on this dress. It has a combination of both super rockstar-like as well as elegant and sophisticated.

My favorite part of this dress might actually be the sleeves. The bottom parts have triangular cutout and are very loose.

Not gonna lie, the dress combined with the lace tights and riding boots make me feel kind of goth ... in a cool, good way! Not too goth, to say the least. A classy goth! If you're goth and reading this, please don't come at me in the comments ...

And of course, no shopping trip is complete without a quick pick me up from Starbucks! I highly recommend you try their seasonal salted caramel hot chocolate, it's sooooooooooo delicious.

This all seems like a successful Black Friday if you ask me!

Fall Into Style

Don't even question it ... sweater weather in Ohio isn't over and won't be until March or even April. Our state's weather is very unpredictable, just ask the meteorologists at Fox 8 News

But I'm not complaining, especially with this new butter yellow chenille sweater from styleNmotion! This is one of my favorite sweaters I have ever owned and I've always envisioned myself with a soft yellow one like this before I finally bought it!

Chenille sweaters are very trendy right now, but I didn't know that until after I got this sweater. I'm honestly happy about that because I feel like I started a trend, all thanks to styleNmotion!

I love the cozy chenille fabric and ribbed trim. It's the type of material I remember my older relatives wearing when I was younger, which brings back happy memories. My new sweater just proves that the material on clothing is still in style and rocking more than ever! It's 100% polyester, comes in more than one size (the site states itself that it fits true to size!), and can only be hand washed. 

My dog Max the other day actually saw it laying out and gently took it like no one was watching. Thankfully I caught him and got the sweater back without any rips or dog salvia, but that just tells you how awesome it is because even my dog likes it!

This is random, but can we take a moment to appreciate the perfectly timed photo with the clouds and blue sky reflecting in the window? It's so amazing! Laura (my photographer) was looking for the right angles before taking the picture and she saw that the clouds and sky looked clear and perfect in the window behind me. It turned out so artsy!

I'm also still obsesseding over these cropped high-rise skinny jeans and nude lace-up booties, both from Anthropologie, which I talked about in my last fashion blog post. Super comfy, super stylish, and super perfect all year-round.

And of course, what is a fall fashion photoshoot without a pumpkin the same size of my head?! 

Look, I’m a pumpkin head! 🎃

I also want to let you know that styleNmotion is having Black Friday deals on their website. They're having a huge sale, 40% off everything from Friday to Monday. That's a pretty freaking good deal!
