Happy Cyber Monday. As of last Friday, it’s finally socially acceptable to countdown to Christmas! For some reason, my Christmas time clock started way before Black Friday. I never shop on Black Friday because large crowds overwhelm me and I’m not interested in elbowing my way through them for things I may not have wanted to buy anyway. Instead, I skunk around the internet on Friday and then shop small on Saturday and Cyber Monday.
We live in Little Town, USA and there are tons of precious boutiques to dabble in. Many of these boutiques have an online presence as well and there are no shortages of etsy shops to meander through today. Still, we woke up bright an early to visit our local shops
I wore this colorblock field jacket. The day it came out, I knew I had to have it. It was so beautiful and felt amazing and after buying it, Malia Obama wore it to the turkey pardoning that year. So needless to say, I took that as a sign that this was a sensible purchase. Since then, I’ve worn this jacket very little and every now and then, husband demands that I wear it. You know, like today. But I could not have been happier in it as I warmly pursued the street.
Anyway, definitely poke around online and support some local businesses in your area or at least in the USA even if it’s your local J. Crew. *wink*
One of my favorite USA based companies that gets tons of business this time of year is L.l. Bean especially for their famous bean boots. They make a beautiful and well crafted product right in main and this time of year is when you’ll start to see sizes become back ordered. If you have your eye on a pair, how’s the time especially since they are offering 20% off if you spend $50. (Bean boots are $109 for women. It’s a no brainer if they’re on your list). Make sure you pay attention to sizing if you’ve never purchased a pair.
