As much as I love my ridiculous vintage '70s prints and patterns and fabrics and general insanity, there's something very satisfying about the simplicity of black and blue and grey. Especially when paired all together. Especially for a day I know will be particularly frenzied. I'm not talking about Black Friday (although I do plan on scrolling through the online sales), no, this is what I turned to for a day that was inevitably spent covered in glitter and glue, shooting holiday DIYs at a coworker's studio. I haven't busted out a poncho in awhile, but when I received this pretty grey poncho/scarf from Moorea Seal, I knew I'd wear it layered over this jacket and with my favorite black jeans. I realize how little I really talk about work on here, partially because it takes up so much of my life. I'm very lucky that I love what I do, that beyond the general bureaucratic office stuff that can irk me, my top complaints of late have been tracking too much glitter home with me (but seriously, it's everywhere) and too many sweets around the office. My days are varied, a morning spent shooting a recipe at home, an afternoon in the office, a day spent shooting off-site. As my job becomes more and more physical with photoshoots and days trekking around NYC, I've found myself turning to more basic pairings, and most importantly, comfortable footwear. I'm not one of those people who can flit around in heels, my body just isn't made for it and my mind can't stand the thought of being slowed down.

So, what am I wearing for Black Friday? Probably something similar to this as I scroll through the sales below and completely avoid the frenzy of shopping in person. Because the thought of that makes my introverted heart flutter with anxiety.
