Can someone please explain to me how Thanksgiving is tomorrow? It seems like January was only a few a weeks ago, and yet I’m already decorating my house for the holidays and planning my Christmas shopping. It’s crazy how time flies by, but I am more excited than ever for the holiday season. I’ve even started plotting for our Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping trips!
A survey from Marriot Rewards Premier Credit Card from Chase found that 47% of Americans have shopped at stores where they had a coupon or available discounts in order to save money to spend on holiday shopping, which totally makes sense since my family loves a good deal. We’re extremely competitive…so Black Friday is our jam. Old Navy has always been one of our favorite Christmas shopping spots because they have amazing holiday deals, and if have the right rewards card, like the Marriott Rewards Premier credit card, you can make their sales even better. Simply use the credit card for all of your holiday shopping, and you’ll earn free night stays for your next
vacation while you shop. Keep reading to see what I’m shopping for this season and the casual fall outfit that I’m wearing for my Black Friday shop-a-thon.
The weather is absolutely perfect in Florida right now, and I’m savoring every second of the crisp autumn breeze. With morning temperatures in the 50s, I’ve been creating outfits that have just the right amount of warmth. This casual fall outfit idea will keep you looking cute and feeling comfortable while you’re running in and out of stores (or hanging out at home with your laptop) on Black Friday. For this look, I started with an adorable red plaid mini skirt and layered on a cozy cream sweater and a navy puffer vest from Old Navy. Together, these three items create a fall outfit that’s as festive as it is functional!
I definitely give three pieces my holiday stamp of approval. The look and quality of each item is fabulous, and you honestly cannot beat the prices at Old Navy. Can you believe this look was only $60? SUCH a good deal!
While I made this outfit casual with a puffer vest and riding boots, you could easily dress up this look with a pair of heels for a fancy holiday party or switch out the skirt for jeans to make it even warmer and more casual. When you’re shopping for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, definitely head to Old Navy in-store or online to stock up on these essential cold-weather pieces. Old Navy and the other GAP Inc. stores have a ton of affordable Christmas gift ideas that anyone on your list will love. I always buy a bunch of scarves, hats, gloves, and throw blankets for last-minute stocking stuffers or add-on gifts.
