Snow Boots That Don’t Suck

Sooo it’s currently snowing in Chicago. It started this morning and hasn’t really let up all day! I had to run some errands near my apartment this afternoon and slipping on my Hunter rain boots to slosh through the snow got me thinking about snow boots. Admittedly, I do own a pair (or maybe two..) of snow boots. (I picked up these last year!)

In this case, I loved the hints of this citrusy neon shade in the sweater and found a matching scarf at Old Navy to play it up! With so much color on the top, it’s important to keep it neutral on the bottom. White corduroy pants are the perfect compliment!

The Best Black Friday Sales

The biggest shopping weekend of the year is here! If you count shopping as cardio, you’re sure to work off your entire Thanksgiving meal this weekend. (I’m still going to need an extra workout today though… Yikes.)

Black Friday used to be synonymous with crazy in-store sales, but now that most retailers run their promotions online all weekend long, sale shopping without the stress has never been easier! There are so many insane sales happening this year, too… Some of the highest discounts I’ve seen in years. I’ll be sure to keep this list updated throughout the day and through the weekend as I find more. Happy Shopping!
