I’ve always believed the Christmas Season began the day after Halloween (or the day of Halloween, if you’re my husband), but that typically gets met with a bit of resistance from others. NOT THIS YEAR!
Not only does it feel like the Christmas season began early, but Black Friday deals are heating up all month long. Goodbye standing in long lines for one day in hopes to score a deal, and helllooo month-long sales where we can find all of our wishlist items!
Warm & Cozy Cold-Weather Fashion: Amy’s Black Friday Shopping List
If you read my FAQ that was posted as a sweet little “hello I’m new here!” blog, you may have taken note that my most-worn pieces are sweatshirts and coats — basically warm layers. As I like to remind my husband: when you live in a four-season area (that leans heavy on the colder seasons), you can NEVER have too many sweatshirts or coats! So it’s no surprise that as I began rounding up my Black Friday wishlist, the majority of the items were cozy winter staples, but each with a little twist. Think classic loungewear — but in velvet, your favorite UGG boots – but ultra mini, and durable coats — with updated style trends. I want to get my hands on it alllll!
Ever since summer began fading into fall, I’ve been watching the internet for the perfect long tan coat. There are so many options and styles, but this one has been the stand-out favorite for me. Here’s hoping for a Black Friday deal!!
The collar on this jacket almost makes my jaw actually drop open. I love it. This feels like such a unique take on the puffer coat, and the color options are my absolute favorite right now. (*Psst: the first one that pops up in this link is faux fur, but when you click on the different color options you’ll find the vegan leather style!)
I’ve always been drawn to the moto tight look, and these look exceptional — even featuring slim back pockets!
These have a LOT of great reviews, and I love the shearling underneath the laces!
I’m not personally drawn to a lot of the classic cuts that cashmere sweaters come in, so when I spotted this turtleneck version on J.Crew I was really excited — and the color options are SO GOOD.
I love this sweatshirt. H&M always has the best oversized shapes, and this one looks perfect to pair with leggings all winter long.
Thermal tights are dreamy for the winter season, and this one takes it to the next level with the slightest snake print (it’s even called “snow snake”). Love.
This fun device pairs with your phone via app to lead you through guided meditations, while measuring your calm, focus and breath-work. What! Now this is something we could ALL benefit from this year!!
9 / UGG Ultra Mini
I am a longtime UGG lover, no matter how many times they go in and out of “style” or what people think about them. I like to think a smart girl always has a pair of UGG boots ready — you can’t beat that comfort and warmth after a long day at work or during the bitter cold Michigan winters! These ultra minis caught my attention via an ad on my Instagram, naturally, and I’ve been keeping a close eye on them for any good sales!
A cream colored cable-knit is such a fantastic staple to incorporate in your winter wardrobe and perfect for pulling together easy holiday outfits. This one tops the cake for me as it features a thick turtleneck that provides a subtle trendy update to this classic piece.
A go-to loungewear item, but in velvet. HELLO.
Pair this with the sweatshirt above and you have a 2020 loungewear set perfectly suited for the holiday season and beyond
