Fashion Friday: Shopping Attire

Happy Fashion Friday everyone!

Last week I blogged about the perfect outfit to wear for your Black Friday shopping, but I unfortunately had some technical difficulties and figure many of you were out anyways hitting up all the sales!  I wanted to re-post as all of the tips are great for any shopping day and are pretty similar to my go-to flying attire as well (I leave dressing in a dress and pumps while flying and walking through a million gates in an airport to Victoria Beckham).

Tips for the quintessential shopping outfit include the following:

Be comfortable!!  You don’t have to look frumpy to be comfy and you’ll be lucky you are when the woman who’s wearing her 5 inch heels or wedges wobbles by you thinking she looks hot.  I suggest wearing a pair of oh-so trendy loafers or the always great Toms.  And if you’re wanting a little glam, go with the uber fun Glitter Toms!

Take it off! Wear items that are easy to take on and off if you are planning on trying clothes on.  I usually avoid button down shirts and stick with leggings as opposed to jeans.  If you do opt for jeans, make sure they’re not tight and easy to wear, such as a boyfriend jean.

Less is more.  I usually wear minimal jewelry this way if you do try on clothing whatever you have on won’t they won’t clash.  I just got this necklace from Piperlime and I love it!

Layers.  Despite the fact that I’m in South Florida and I could technically wear a tank and shorts if I was strictly dressing for the outside temp, I try to dress in layers because I’m always cold inside, especially inside our mall (it’s probably their way of forcing me to purchase a cashmere, but no – I’m one step ahead!).  I love getting super soft tees and cardis from Gap and Forever 21.

Easy access!  As much as I love a satchel, when it comes to a shopping day, I leave them at home and stick with either a cross-body or tote.  This allows you to be hands free and not go home with black and blue wrists from your satchel or handbag weighing you down.

And yes, I of course also pair it all with all of my makeup essentials (obvi)!

Have an amazing weekend and let the holiday shopping continue!
