OOTD: Black Friday look

Normally I do not shop on Black Friday. Like ever. I don't really get all the hype. I'd rather shop online or shop the week before Black Friday. When I went shopping the weekend prior I got some AMAZING deal! But, my friend asked me to go shopping with her so I decided to tough it out and head out to the mall. To my surprise it wasn't to crazy around 2-3 in the afternoon. We went to a few stores and I got some great deals (I can't lie). Some included 30% off at Francesca's as well as $10 deals at Charming Charlie's. I mean 2 for $10 winter accessories can't be beat. I got 4 great scarves (one for me 3 as gifts) for $20! What a steal.

For my on-the-go Black Friday look I decided to mix prints. I wore a simple striped long sleeve with a bright pink plaid scarf. Mixing stripes and plaid is one of my favorite combinations. It's a surprisingly cute combo! In general, I think mixing prints can add a lot of interest to ones outfit. It makes your look have a little something extra in comparison to a plain tee and scarf. 
To stay comfortable while shopping I wore my go-to American Eagle jeans. American Eagle jeans are the ONLY jeans I wear! They are not only super stretchy but they are beyond comfortable. 

To complete the look I threw on my favorite pair of short boots. I've worn these in countless OOTD looks because they are the perfect height. Also, they are great for walking around because the are uber comfy. Then I added a pair of fun purple and pink statement earrings to accent the pink scarf. For my arm candy I mixed Alex and Ani, Kate Spade, and Henri Bendel pieces. 

My newest obsession is a recent purchase of mine this black cape coat from Nordstrom. I picked it up at Nordstrom rack for around $50 which is a decent price for a cape coat. Although it doesn't look warm it actually keeps me toasty. I love this kind of coat if you know you will be running in and out of stores. Not to mention it is adorable!
