Black Friday Purchases!

Earlier in the week, my friend Gina of the On The Daily Express blog (who was my inspiration for my own blog) asked me to round up a few of my “wishlist” items for the Express Black Friday Sale. Well of course, this led me to searching the website for awhile and picking out a few things to share with her, which inevitably led me to ordering said items.

You could probably already tell this from previous posts, but Express is one of my favorite places to shop! It can be a bit pricey, but they have 40%-50% off sales pretty often. This week has been one of those times, and I’m sharing with you a few items that I purchased on sale! I even got $10 extra off because I’m an Express rewards member and I had a bonus to use 🙂

Floral Satin Tie Waist Romper (Link Here)

So I’m not a super huge fan of wearing lighter colors but I’m making an exception for this romper. There’s something very vintage feeling about it to me, almost like something that would have been worn in the 40’s-50’s. It’s so feminine and pretty! I can definitely see myself wearing this on a lunch/brunch date or just on a casual day out. I never know if I’m a size 2 or 4 at Express so I ordered a size 4 in this because I don’t care about it being super fitted. I’d prefer more of a flowy look with this item anyway. Since our winters here in Florida are so mild I’ll probably be able to wear it is soon as it comes!

Mesh Inset Mini Sheath Dress (Link Here)

So my hope for this dress is that I will be able to wear it to my boyfriend’s work Christmas party. They are having it at a really nice Steakhouse here in Sarasota so I think this would fit the dress code. With never actually seeing the dress in person, it’s hard to say how this is going to work out on me. I ordered a size Small, which according to the size guide would fit a size 4-6. Even though I’m only 5’5, dresses online on models always seem to be longer than they are on me, which doesn’t make a lot of sense. I already ordered a dress from Revolve I was hoping to wear for the party that I had to send back because it was too revealing. If this doesn’t work out, I’ll probably just end up wearing something I already have. The beauty of ordering from Express for me is that I have several stores nearby so if something I purchase online doesn’t work out, I can return it to the store and get my money back immediately.

High Waisted Mesh Inset Leggings (Link Here)

So I haven’t been to the gym in months. I seriously really just hate the gym! I’m getting these as motivation to actually make myself start going again. Or at least to start walking the nature preserve by my house. Or to curl up with a sweatshirt and watch Netflix in! Oops!

Kendra Scott Elaina Adjustable Chain Bracelet in Fuchsia Drusy (Link Here)

I love Kendra Scott! Her pieces are so classic and pretty. This particular bracelet comes in 35 different color combinations too! This, and everything on the site is 20% off today with the code YELLOW20. I usually only wear gold jewelry, and this is so dainty. I’m not a big fan of chunky stuff either so this is perfect for me. I also have a lot of maroon/burgandy/wine colored items in my wardrobe as well, so I think I’ll get a lot of use out of this like I did my Kendra Scott necklace before I lost it.

So that is everything I ordered for Black Friday! I also have an amazon wish list, which I haven’t done much with that yet. That is mostly kitchen tools and art supplies but if you’re interested in checking that out too, here’s the link.

Happy Shopping Everyone!
