Black Friday Outfit Idea: Shawl Collar Vest + Faux Leather Leggings

I hope your Thanksgiving week is off to a great start! I am looking forward to spending Thanksgiving Day with my family on Thursday, enjoying endless amount of delicious homemade food and just enjoying the day off to relax. I know that many people enjoy a four day weekend and roll right from Thanksgiving feasting into Black Friday shopping, so today I am showing you an idea for a Black Friday outfit that is ultra-comfy and would work well for shopping, eating leftovers, hanging out, or whatever you decide to do with your day! This shawl collar vest is a favorite of mine from last winter, and it is back this year in a few different colors. I am sure this year's version is just as warm and cozy, and I'm loving the yellow option. I paired this vest with a striped henley top, faux leather leggings (because real pants the day after Thanksgiving is just too aggressive), and slouch boots. Please read on for more photos, outfit links, more of my picks for cozy vests and faux leather leggings, and more Black Friday outfit inspiration!

I am also excited to be joining Ada of Elegance & Mommyhood and a group of wonderful bloggers for this year's Holiday Series! Today is the second post of the series with the theme of Black Friday outfits, where we show you what we will be wearing on Black Friday (for shopping, working, and anything in between). I hope that these lovely ladies inspire you with their Black Friday outfits, and you can visit their blogs and follow them for more style inspiration all throughout the year.

ADA Elegance and Mommyhood "I cannot believe Thanksgiving is this week and then Black Friday, which means the Holiday craze has started. I am one of those 'lucky' ones that has to work all day on Black Friday, because the company I work for deals with sales among other things. For the small portion of the day when I do not work, you will find me bundled up in layers like my Abercrombie henley, Abercrombie fleece jacket, ponte skinnies, sneakers, the softest fleece scarf and a fleece beanie. And yes without realizing it, I wore yet another leopard hat. Happy Thanksgiving week, babes!"
BOJANA Bo's Bodacious Blog "Jeans, boots, poncho comfort are my weekend jam.   The poncho kept me cozy and warm, and my hands free while waking through the mall (I despise having to carry my coat around in the mall).  The outfit was pretty tame so  I added a little bling with these new Stella and Dot chandelier earrings.  Love how it all came together and how the daylight cooperated for these pictures. "
SHELBEE Shelbee on the Edge "I will be working all day on Black Friday: at the consignment shop from 10 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. then heading to the mall to work at Torrid from 5:30 until 10:30 p.m.  So I need to be comfortable while donning my battle gear! I found this graphic tee which says “My coffee needs coffee” to be perfectly appropriate for working 12 hours on Black Friday.  To be battle-ready, I went for a camo cardigan and plaid combat boots.  Wish me luck! 
LAURA I Do deClaire "I don't normally head out on Black Friday. It's too chaotic and my introverted self gets overwhelmed with all the crowds. I like to be home, nice and warm and cozy, recover from Thanksgiving, and do some light online shopping if I have a chance! What could be better than overalls and a soft cardigan for a day at home?"

AMBER Avec Amber "I know that many people have a four day weekend and roll right from Thanksgiving feasts to Black Friday shopping! My Black Friday outfit idea has this in mind with pieces that are both comfortable and cozy for the dropping temperatures...and leggings instead of pants, because real pants the day after Thanksgiving is just too aggressive."
JENNIE A Pocketful of Polka Dots "When it comes to Black Friday shopping I am all about staying warm, being comfortable, and wearing things that are easy to get in and out of. A plaid vest layered over a simple sweater keep me warm and slide on sneakers make trying on clothes easy, while also helping me walk the distance. The great thing about wearing basics like a sweater and jeans is they work well while trying on other pieces, because if you are anything like me, Black Friday shopping inevitably means finding things for myself, too. ;)  Gotta take advantage of those sales for All the important people on our list!" 
LINDA A Labour of Life "My Vanheusen Dot pants are so very comfortable and perfect for Black Friday Shopping.  For me I will be working (aka Canadian) but comfy at my desk and surfing for awesome deals."
MONICA Jersey Girl, Texan Heart "Can y'all believe that it is already that time of year?  The madness of Black Friday shopping is upon us!  I usually don't go out shopping on Black Friday, but whenever I do, I'm always there later in the day in something super comfy, because I'm still stuffed from Thanksgiving dinner the night before.  Here is my winter uniform!  A sweater, some comfy pants, boots, and a hat."
CHERYL Cheryl Shops "Normally I'm down in Los Angeles for Thanksgiving—and California has been having unseasonably warm, dry weather—so this is what I'd wear on Black Friday. It's kind of half summer and half fall, but these are some of my favorite pieces that I've featured this year on Cheryl Shops. The accessories are key for Black Friday bargain hunting: the crossbody purse allows you to go hands-free, and the low-heeled boots are comfy enough to be on your feet for hours. Happy shopping!"

What will you be wearing on Black Friday? Thank you for visiting my blog today, please be sure to visit the other bloggers in this holiday collaboration series, and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and week!
