Black Friday 2014 Guide

Truth is I've only managed to wake up really early or go out the night before to shop Black Friday a few years ago.  It's not something I normally do.  More recently I've found it to be more convenient and hassle free to just shop in my warm home in pj's online!  It only took a few experiences of outrageously long lines and ignorant customers to get me to stay home, lol.

Today I've compiled a list of the best deals out there from some of my favorite stores starting now throughout the weekend.  I've also pulled a few items as well, which can very much be for yourself or  gift ideas for others!  Happy Shopping!

P L A I D S with AMI Clubwear






Navy Plaid Coat c/o AMI Clubwear | White Sweater (Similar) | Blue Jeans (Similar) | Navy Quilted Tote Handbag c/o AMI Clubwear | Snake Skin Sneakers (Similar)

Are you you a fan of plaid coats?  I adore them.  Actually I'm completely obsessed with this print.  Especially prints that go outside of the traditional red and green colors.   When it's cold and dreary out it's easy to reach for our black winter coats.  Black goes with everything right?  Well, I've partnered with AMI Clubwear to share some of my favorite items from their fall collection that will add a little more diversity to your fall style.

I'm so in love with this coat and it was perfect for my day out because I was so warm and cozy in it.  It's natural for me to just want to hibernate with such brisk weather, but wearing something that keeps me bundled up makes going out more enjoyable.

I kept things pretty simple by pairing this coat with a navy quilted bag.  I love being hands free when I'm out and about.  The quilted handbag served as the perfect cross body and has so many different compartments there was enough room to carry my essentials.  Perfect!

Jeans: Dark Denim/Light Distressed Skinny Jeans/Black Distressed Jeans/White Pants

Accessories: Floppy Hat/Plaid Scarf

So I decided to continue with my series of 'Style Your Wardrobe' for each season.  Although it isn't quite winter yet, the weather already feels like it!  I feel like we didn't get enough time to prepare.  I spent an afternoon pulling out more of my winter sweaters from storage bins and thinking about my cold weather wardrobe.  Anyhow, you know I always have you girls covered with a cheat sheet of ideas.  You will continue to see this series here on Styled Chic!  This season I am in love with the long over coats so I've provided quite a few for you.  I love the minimalistic feel that it gives an outfit.  Coats are probably the most important thing for me because I need to be warm.  Colors and texture all play a part as well.  Majority of these looks are definitely casual chic because this is everyday wear.  I was also able to find similar items to match what's on the guide.  Some are splurge items but most are budget friendly.  You can shop these items here...

Floppy Brim Fedora


My favorite accessory this season is the floppy brim fedora, hands down!  What I love most is that it compliments almost every outfit and seems to add more of an interesting look no matter what you're wearing.  I am all about street fashion on the weekends, so I would more than likely reach for this hat for a casual look.  

Two important things about the floppy brim fedora:  It's perfect to hide a bad hair day and you'll look cool + timeless while wearing!  Can't beat that!  Below I picked four different hats that I'm really feeling.  Don't worry about looking like Freddie Kruger, lol.  There are different styles that are available for different face shapes and also different colors.  Throw on one of these with distressed denim, a loose flannel top, boots, and it's literally instant chicness!  Shop my picks down below!  I was able to find some really cute ones for you guys.  Quality hats will be a little more expensive, but I did add in quite a few under $50!  Simply click the links below!

Layering with a Southwestern Mix




 
Sweater weather?? More like coat weather!  This cold front totally caught me slipping.  I haven't quite broken out my winter coat so I've been layering almost all of my outfits lately.  It's actually getting me by!  I'm having a bit of a moment with over sized sweaters and ponchos as you can tell from my last few posts.  I almost think it's the socially acceptable way to wear a blanket in public!  Talk about cozy. 
 
Here I just wanted something casual to run around town in as usual.  There are so many options that I have with this southwestern sweater.  Another thing I've been loving lately are my ripped black jeans.  Traditionally black ripped denim has been super edgy, but this fall I've found that they go well with so many different styles.  You can pair it with an over sized sweater for a Boho vibe or a camel coat for a minimalistic look.  Endless options.

This Weekend: Blogger Brunch at Conch & Bucket










It's been almost a year since I've married and relocated to Hampton and I must say, I do enjoy this city.  I have found so many hidden jewels on this side of the water that have become some of my favorite places to visit.  I'm having so much fun living in a new city and discovering all the little nooks this area has to offer.  Since I enjoy these experiences so much,  I thought I'd bring you all along with me.

Imagine my excitement to find yet another space to try great food and enjoy!  Sunday I had an amazing brunch at a downtown jewel called Conch & Bucket.  As a member of the Virginia Blogger group, I was able to meet up with other bloggers of this area.  We talked blogging, health, beauty, fashion, and little tech over mimosas and delicious food!  I had delicious Tomato Basil Eggs Benedict with cubed potatoes, and a side of bacon.  So good!

I feel like winter is already here.  Hence the layered look I wore.  I wore my poncho that I shared with you all HERE a little differently.  I wore a button down underneath to layer and I removed the belt.  Again, I was so warm and cozy.  I even added a plaid scarf!  How was your weekend?

This Weekend: The Perfect Chilly Afternoon At Black Dog





How relaxing it is to spend my time in probably one of my favorite places at the moment.  Saturday afternoon was perfect.  Perfect weather and the perfect time to introduce my family to a beloved space of relaxation. 

My neighborhood coffee shop is an amazing little nook that allows you to get cozy.  So much so that if you aren't paying attention you'll look up and realize it's been like 3 hours since you've gotten there. 

I had my favorite of course:  A Butter Rum cappuccino with whipped cream on top.  Also with a side of Glamour magazine serving the beautiful actress Lupita on the cover!  I adore her!

The rest of the day was spent sight seeing in downtown Hampton and just a wee bit of shopping.  Autumn is definitely here and I couldn't be any happier!
