In annual Black Friday ‘Midnight Madness’ shopping tradition, we went shopping right after Thanksgiving dinner. Stores opened at 9:00pm at the Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets in Kenosha, WI and Jack, Matt and I found some great deals!
Here’s a recap:
First Stop: J.Crew
Jack brought some shirts. Ironically, the polka dot chambray looks super similar to this number – one of my favorite shirts! #ThatAwkwardMomentWhenYouAreWearingTheSameShirtAsYourBrother.
Matt also found some shirts and girlfriend approved!
And I found, well, several things.
Clearly, I was attracted to Peter Pan collar tops.
And these Pixie Pant Jodhpurs.
And sweaters…Because you can never have too many sweaters!
I got the V-neck in navy blue at last years’ sale and wear it all the time. Opted for a bright blue this time around a merino Tippi ‘Charley’ sweater in kelly green.
And lastly, the Factory Pleated Shift Dress in Floral.
This piece, true to my ‘Quality Control‘ review earlier this week, is definitely lower quality than the original. But, it’s such a fun print and was only $30, I decided to go for it! (As a reference, it’s currently $54.00 online, so the sales in store and online are not exactly the same. Neither is the selection – much more to choose from in-store).
But, of course, you can’t beat shopping J.Crew Factory from the convenience of your own home. And — lucky for all of us — J.Crew Factory Online Sale = 50% Off Everything!
We zipped in and out of J.Crew the came Banana Republic, Brooks Brothers, Fossil, Target…
Between the three of us we found some great gift items (for ourselves…and others…)
Matt found some nice Fossil watches. Shop the selection.
We brought my dad some good ‘ol Brooks Brothers flannel button downs.
Confession: I’ve been wanting a Target ‘pleather‘ jacket for a while now. I actually want a fancy genuine leather jacket, but of course the practical #HelpMeImPoor version is this $20 Target number (typically $40, so get it while it’s on sale)! Since it’s trendy a not an everyday jacket, I don’t mind going faux. Shop similar.
Another Black Friday, another successful shopping trip! What did you find? Let us know in the comments below!
