Bellies are full. Football recaps are playing on the TV. Board games have been abandoned on the kitchen table. It’s time to leave the comfort of your warm, family party, and prepare to go into the wild.
Okay, so maybe that was a little dramatic…but after the cozy, comfort of Thanksgiving with the family, comes the dark and chilly chaos of Black Friday. Great deals await, but you’ll need the proper armor before heading into bargain battle.
This year, I partnered with Old Navy to create some cute and cozy outfits for the kids and me to wear during our Black Friday outing. We all decided to mix denim with puffy vests, pops of plaid, and snug winter accessories.
I put London in a dark wash denim shirt dress and some gray tights with a girly heart pattern. I knew she’d be excited about this metallic silver vest. It’s an easy way to layer for extra warmth and a playful holiday accessory for little girls who love shiny things (aka LS). A fun coral hat, glove and scarf combo in a bright pattern is a must for any little fashionista in the cold months. Plus this pattern helps me keep tabs on her in crowded stores.

I decided to match London by pairing a chambray shirt with a classic black puffer vest. A chambray shirt is a great staple because it’s so versatile. You can pair it with colored denim like these black skinny jeans, tuck it into an A-line skirt, or layer it under a sweater. I’m loving this flannel scarf that feels like you’ve fashioned your favorite throw blanket into a practical accessory. The red and black color combination is perfect for a holiday feel, and the pattern gives the otherwise neutral outfit an elevated look. I wore black booties, a pair of matching red and black gloves and a black puffball hat to ward off frostbite.

Rio Dash looked so dashing in his plaid vest in Christmas colors. I can’t handle how grown up it makes him look! He was debonair in some dark wash jeans and a slate gray Old Navy hoodie. I absolutely love the way he looks in little hats, and this navy puffball hat is right on trend. He sported some suede fringe moccasins in a light gray color.
Shop Rio’s Look
If you’re planning to brave the cold and the crowds this Black Friday, be sure to stock up on layers and cold weather accessories. Plaid fabrics, puffer vests, and puffball hats will keep you looking stylish and warm while you’re getting your shop on. Be sure to check out Old Navy for some incredible deals this Friday so you can outfit the whole fam!!
