My Black Friday Haul

Happy Sunday, everyone! I don't know about you, but I am pooped from all the shopping I've been doing this weekend. I've been trying to get a head start on my Christmas shopping for my family and friends, while also picking up a few great deals for myself. Below is what I managed to snag during all the Black Friday sales!

$153 (originally $510)
I had been obsessing over this bag for months and I'm so happy I was finally able to get it for such an awesome price (70% off retail!). I'm hoping to pick up the Henry Hen Key Ring in Emerald soon so I can pair it with this bag - I think they would look so cute together!

$83.40 (originally $300)
This is another piece I'd been wanting for several months now. It was actually my Mom who spotted this blouse while we were in London and I thought it was the perfect top (at the time, though, it was £195, so I was happy to purchase this at 72% off).

Wreath from Michael's
$22.40 (originally $79.99)
Michael's was actually my first Black Friday stop. My Mom and I went there Thursday night because I specifically had my eye on this wreath - they were running a 60% off sale and then there was an additional 30% off coupon that night. My husband's been feeling pretty ambitious lately so he painted our front door and shutters this week and I wanted a new wreath to match our freshly painted door. The color is Behr's Compass Blue by the way - an absolutely gorgeous blue shade that I'm quite pleased with. My husband picked out the color :)

$19.99 (originally $49)
I first found out about this blouse through Chase Amie, my absolute favorite YouTuber/Blogger at the moment. She picked up this blouse when she spotted it on Lauren Conrad, another person who's style I'm obsessed with. I thought this blouse was super pretty and romantic - the blush shade is my current favorite color and the off-the-shoulder detail is on trend.

$33 (originally $150)
This was a pretty random purchase from my local Nordstrom Rack. I'd seen this lone pair of loafers there for months and always thought they were quite fun (I can't resist anything with a quirky print), so when I'd seen that they went on clearance and there was an additional 30% off sale, I decided to pick them up. Even my husband thought they looked nice :)

$83.99 (originally $168)
I'd been wanting a Long Field jacket for awhile now, and finally decided to take the plunge when I saw this one go on clearance. J. Crew was also having an amazing 40% off sale, so I was super happy about that. The Dark Forest color is gorgeous and perfect for fall/winter.

$5.99 (originally $9.99)
This was another purchase from Michael's - all their Cricut accessories were 40% and I'd recently gotten my first Cricut machine so I knew I wanted to stock up on some supplies. I plan on using these  for some Orla Kiely-inspired window coverings for my sidelight. I'd originally been working on a stained glass project, and while it looks good so far, it's been quite tedious so I decided maybe some window clings would be better. I will update you all once I'm done with that project!

$5.99 (originally $14.99)
And lastly, I picked up one of these greeting card organizers (because, yes, I do keep all my cards) and I absolutely love it. I'd already been storing my cards in my own makeshift bin, but I like how this one has plastic dividers that you can label. I definitely plan on picking up more of these!

Orla Kiely SS17 Stem: Stripe Tulip in Dusk and Spring

Orla Kiely's Spring/Summer 2017 collection is slowly starting to trickle onto the website. First up is the addition of the Stripe Tulip print for the Stem collection, and they are available in the colorways Dusk and Spring. The print is lovely, but I'm actually not too crazy about the color combos. I do, however, like that the zipper pulls and logo tag are in black leather - a subtle difference from the brown leather we're used to seeing. Another difference to note is the pricing - all the pieces come in at a slightly lower price point (about a 12% drop). I am a bit curious as to why the pieces are priced a bit lower, but I'm not complaining! 

Another (slightly) new addition is the Satchel (shown below). This style has been available since last season, but it now comes in a smaller size, which I find to be quite cute (however, there is no top handle on the smaller size). This is probably my favorite piece from the collection, and if I had to choose a colorway, it would be the Spring.
