With this year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday now behind us, I can’t help but feel kinda relieved. It was (to say the least) overwhelming! I did manage to avoid most sales this year, making just a few purchases on “necessary” items. Next year will probably be a different story, because I’ll definitely be more prepared ($$ wise).
I feel like the craze of Black Friday in Canada started just a few years ago, and I can’t believe how ridiculous some of these sales were. If you’re able to save your spending for this time of year, then you’re pretty much set until the next one!
Two items that I picked up prior to these sales include this denim jacket and these pink ankle boots. This is my take on the Canadian tuxedo – the denim on denim look has got to be one of my favorite trends!
I know this is about the 10th denim jacket I’ve showcased on the blog, but seriously, you all know I’m a denim addict. I had been looking for a decent looking and affordable cropped denim jacket for the longest time, after seeing Gigi Hadid in her 73 questions for Vogue video. This one from Forever 21 features an oversized look, and the pearl embellishments add just the right amount of piz-zazz.
As for the booties, I wanted a pair that were a bit out of the ordinary. For some reason the color pink came to mind! I can’t even begin to tell you how many compliments I’ve received while wearing these out. The color and jewel tones are light enough to make more of a subtle statement.
I’ll admit, I’ve never been into pearls. But this has clearly changed, and I’m in love with these embellishments.
What do you think of the pearls/embellished trend? Let me know in the comments!
