Black Friday is here, y’all! As a kid, the day after Christmas was my favorite shopping day because it was the only day I ever had money to shop (thanks to Christmas gifts!) Now that I’m a grown up, I know that Black Friday is where it’s AT (although Boxing Day is still pretty great). Here are some online sales you have to hit up, because we all know shopping from home is the best anyway.
Bag c/o Shop Positive Elements
Remember the days when you couldn’t wear navy and black at the same time? Thank goodness those days are over, right?! Mixing black and blue (or black and brown) can be so chic and it’s a great way to add just a bit of color without overwhelming the look. I don’t wear a ton of color (y’all know this) but I love sneaking in colors like navy, olive green and/or burgundy to help mix things up a little bit.
I’ve had this dress for a while now (you might remember it from this post) but to be honest, it’s been sitting in my closet, sad and alone, for the last six months or so. Between the looong length and the shapeless silhouette, it just didn’t make me feel good about myself when I put it on. As I was going through the Feel Good, Dress Better workbook (more on this later!), I almost threw this dress out but decided to give it one more try with a belt….game changer! It’s become one of my go-to date night looks and I love it because you can dress it up or down super easily. Pairing this gorgeous navy bag with a black outfit was a no-brainer for me – then I decided to make the dress a bit more casual by layering a camo jacket. I could’ve dressed it down even further with a pair of flats or sneakers, but I wanted to keep it more “date night” appropriate.
You might have noticed that I don’t change up my bags very often on this bag. Unlike most bloggers, I rarely buy handbags – they just don’t “speak” to me very often. That being said…when Positive Elements reached out to me to collaborate, this navy fringe tote TOTALLY spoke to me. I love that it’s a basic bag that will go with almost anything, but the fringe gives it that extra something. The leather is also SUPER soft and buttery! I feel like I could take this bag anywhere for any occasion – which is exactly what I look for in a high quality bag. If I’m going to invest, it needs to be something I can reach for anything.
If you love this bag I have *great* news for you – Shop Positive Elements is offering 40% off as part of their Black Friday Sale. FORTY percent off you guys! Use the code BLACKFRIDAY and take advantage now, babes!
In other news, I’ve been blogging twice a week (instead of three times) and honestly it has made my life wayyyyy better. I’m able to commit more time to Everyday Unicorns and have (a tiny bit) more free time. Just wanted to let you guys know I’m going to continue to post twice a week at least for the time being.
Love you guys – happy Thanksgiving week!
I looooove taking clothes to resale shops (and shopping there, too!) but I realized a lot of people don’t take advantage of them! I decided to make a video with tips on selling to and shopping at Buffalo Exchange (and to show you what I bought)!
