I am one of those obnoxious people who shop months in advance. That thing where people say you marry your parents and become your parents is totally true. Both my mother and mother in law are usually done shopping by September and they just Dec 24th shop for traditional’s sake. (Mother in law is a New Yorker so 34th st Macy’s at midnight is an easy way to get “cheap” thrills)
Just because we over here have prepped for the Christmas-pocalyse doesn’t mean I can’t help you with Black Friday Deals. Every single thing that I’m wearing (except for this pair of tassel earrings) is 50% off right now as a part of J. Crew Factory’s Black Friday deals. And even the earrings are a fantastic deal at only $12. What a steal for a hand made (I have seen it happen for my very eyes) small shop goody. They are from The Tiny Tassel in South Carolina and would make a fabulous Christmas gift!
My favorite things about this outfit is that it’s dressy if your family does that but also casual enough that you could toss on a cute sneaker or a riding boot and make it more relaxed if that’s what you guys do.
Aside from the Tiny Tassel and J. Crew, here’s a list of my favs from the places I usually shop. These are mostly the biggies and I will update this in the coming days with a gift guide that includes some of my favorite small shops so you can shop small and local for #shopsmall Saturday, one of my FAVORITE shopping holidays of the year.
