Every year, I get excited for Black Friday! I remember as a little girl on Thanksgiving being at my Grandma’s house, and watching the women in my family pour over the ads and plan their attack! As I got older, I was excited when I got to start participating and joining in on the fun! We still pour over the ads after Thanksgiving dinner, but with online shopping it opens a whole opportunity for shopping. I am starting to scour over my favorite sites and hunting for what I cannot live with out. I decided to share some of my favorite sales, and what I am adding to my wish list. If you are looking for ideas for your Christmas List check out my Christmas List here. What is on your wish lists this year?
Vests in the fall and winter are one of my favorites items to wear! I love that you can layer them in so many different looks! They can be worn casually or dressed up. I decided to pull together some of my favorite looks from last year wearing this gorgeous olive vest from Old Navy. As you can see this was a piece that I wore often and in many different ways. What is your favorite look? Can you tell that Stripes are my favorite pattern to pair it with?
For Work Wear Wednesday this week, I wanted to style a fun and work worthy look for this vest. I absolutely love knitted vest. They are perfect for fall especially when you want to layer. This vest from Baciano (use code MUSINGSOFASHOPAHOLICMAMA2017 for 30% off )is a perfect blue coloring with a marbling effect. I love that it has pockets and a hood. When styling this vest I knew I wanted to try a button up to make it a dressier for the work place. I choose this blue window pane blouse because the colors were a perfect match.

When I don’t know what to pair with a work look I always tend to grab for my black skinny jeans. These are a closet staple that I cannot live without! They go with just about anything! If you don’t have a good pair of black skinnies you need to pick up a pair. The Loft has a pair that I absolutely love, and the curvy fit is perfect for anyone with a little bit of curves.
To finish off this look I decided to add my cognac boots. There is something about the colors black and cognac together that just makes a statement. Since this blouse and vest make such a statement. I kept my accessories simple. I love necklaces that create dainty layers when I am going simple. How would you style this vest?
Once Halloween hits time seems to go into warp speed. It is crazy to think that we are only two weeks away from Thanksgiving! I absolutely love the holidays and gathering with friends and family. I look forward to Thanksgiving every year, because it is the beginning of the Holiday shopping. On Thanksgiving, after we eat dinner, we gather around the table with our black Friday ads. Everyone is making lists and plotting out the next day’s course. We do not go out on Thanksgiving, but get up before dawn to shop on Friday.

Of course with the Holidays comes Holiday Looks! I already have this year’s thanksgiving look picked out. Since our Thanksgiving is usually casual I tend to go towards looks that are comfy. They need to make it through multiple meals and stops. This Floral Dress from Couture Cottage was an easy choice for this year’s look! This dress is flowy and definitely forgiving with all the deserts I plan to consume! This one can definitely be paired with leggings or denim depending on your mood. I love this floppy hat, but find that I feel a bit awkward wearing it out and about. My family expects me to be a tad over the top so I don’t feel overdressed wearing it around them.
I had such a hard time choosing just one thing from Couture Cottage. I also ended up picking up this dress too. If you are local they are located at Jefferson Pointe. If you aren’t local you are in luck! Just follow them on Instagram and comment sold, and fill out the Social Shop form on their site to get items shipped to you.
In looking towards Christmas and New Year’s Eve I have already began outfit planning. I have a few pieces that I have ordered and cannot wait to style! What is your go to looks for the holidays?
I absolutely love fall fashion! I love the layering, scarves, and boots. Most of all though, I LOVE the rich fall colors. They are so vibrant, and you can mix and match pretty much all of them. The colors in this look are no exception. If I would have to choose a favorite fall color it would be hard to come up with one, but I would have to say mustard yellow and burgundy are by far my top two. I have so many variations of these two colors.
I was drawn to this cardigan from Shein for multiple reasons. The first is of course the color! Secondly, I am a sucker for anything this season that is chunky knits. This cardigan from Shein lists its sizing is one size fit all. As much as I loved this sweater though, it is not a one size. If I was putting a size to this it would be a small or medium.
