Your Time Will Come If You Wait For It

Happy Black Friday! I told myself I wouldn't give into the urge to wait in hour-long lines this year just to save a few dollars on things I didn't need. I also didn't listen to myself when I was saying all of that nonsense. I dragged my friend, Jim, on a 1:30 AM adventure to the nearest Urban Outfitters and then proceeded to bury myself in their sale section. Ultimately, I left with three tops and a necklace for under $50, including a shirt to wear out on my birthday next week, which was my goal to begin with. Now I'm back on my strict no-clothing budget. Did any of you guys rampage the stores early in the morning?

Tonight my mom, my brother, and I are going to have a belated Thanksgiving feast consisting of a delicious hot pot. This is how we usually celebrate bigger holidays, including Christmas and birthdays. Unfortunately, this year my dad is abroad during the holidays so it'll be a little lonely with one empty chair. Guess we'll just have to fill it with more food. ;)


  1. you are seriously too adorable :>

  2. Loving this outfit! And the only shopping I did today was to get our family Christmas tree :) I've been checking out online sales but there isn't much

  3. Leaving UO with more than one thing under $50 is quite the feat, Jen! Impressed of your skills, I am. :) Hehehe, I'm glad you got some neat things! I didn't really go anywhere today--we stayed at home and decorated, hooray! Though we did have a Starbucks break for some tea, yum yum <3

    Those booties are cute and I love those last two pictures especially. Such pretty fall colors!

    PS) Skyfall was AWESOME. Of course it was, though. :) You definitely need to see it! It was long at two and a half hours, but it definitely kept your attention!

  4. So we don't have black friday in Canada but I went shopping today just in case and scored some magnificent deals that would rival Black Friday.

    I also have a no clothing budget which I am usually pretty good at sticking to but some weeks require shopping.

    Also these photos are beautiful. I love the lighting and the focus in the last photo. Stunning.

  5. Fun look, I like how your mixed your patterns and of course love your boots.

  26. polka dots plus more polka dots equals great!

    i like seeing all the different ways you wear the star of david necklace.

    all while i was growing up, i really wished i had really straight hair... i am still jealous of girls who can put their hair in a ponytail, and their ponytail isn't shaped like a triangle... nobody is happy with what they are given, eh?

  27. mmm i didnt know what hot pot was but that sounds amazing in the wiki! Love your look here, so simple yet classic and that field is so dreamy! hope you had a wondeful thanksgiving w/ family!

  28. JEN YOU ARE TOO PERFECT. No really, the double polka dots are just the best. I'm in love. You look radiant. I'm in love with this entire outfit right down to your jacket and shoes.
