…plus the most comfortable pair of black leggings! Not to mention super affordable too! (And yes, when it comes to the ‘Are leggings pants?’ debate, you can guess which camp I’m in. 😉 #LeggingsArePantsToo)
This blog post recaps Black Friday, which was nearly a month ago, but, as I always say, better late than never!
I’m also trying something a little different in this post and will be sharing a couple outfit details today! I’m so excited to do this because I’ve been wanting to blog more about my personal fashion style for some time now. Of course, I will never stop blogging about the typical fitness and sharing my healthy recipes, and fashion will likely never become the main focus on my blog because: (1) I don’t consider myself to be a major fashionista — I’d rather stay home and watch The Office than watch some runway show, (2) I always prefer comfort over style, and (3) fitness and food is and will always be more first and foremost love over fashion!
With that said, my approach to quote-on-quote “fashion” is all about comfort, style, and affordability; I’m all about looking somewhat expensive with quality clothing that were bought for an affordable price. Since I spend time searching for the best deals out there, I thought I might as well just share what I find on my blog to perhaps help some girls out! Plus, I think it’d just be fun to share my outfits here and there! 🙂 👗 And so, this blog post features some “beta” outfits, and by that I mean, nothing fancy or complicated, just testing this sort of post out with some straightforward clothing.
Some of my favorite items that I’m sharing today are my favorite pair of what I think is the most comfortable black leggings (that are also super affordable), and my go-to classic denim jacket that makes any comfy outfit instantly chic.

Black Friday, Part 1: The Non-Conventional and Fun Way to do Black Friday
Typical Black Friday shopping means getting out of bed super early (or, in some cases, skipping the pumpkin pie 🍮 on Thanksgiving to drive to the outlet mall and shop until 3AM — crazy, but I know people who actually did this! 😱) to score the best deals in fashion, electronics… basically anything besides Christmas trees. 🌲
On the contrary, my Black Friday looked more like this: slept in from eating all that turkey & yams the night before, and spent my morning doing yoga to detox from the Thanksgiving feast and stretch out my super sore muscles. I did a crazy intense full-body workout on Thanksgiving day, and I could barely feel my legs that morning!
(Notice in the photo on the right: that Mei Mei and I were both doing down dog at the same time! Totally unplanned, and I’ve always wanted a photo like that with her! 🐶 #PartnerYoga)
After yoga, I finally headed out to do some Black Friday shopping, and by that, I mean, heading to Lowes with my dad to pick out this year’s Christmas tree! 🌲 I mean, who goes shopping on Black Friday to shop for Christmas trees and holiday wreaths? This girl and her papa, right here, that’s who. 🙋
Because Lowes is dog-friendly, I of course had to bring along Mei Mei to help us select the finest-smelling tree! We like our Christmas tree smelling extra piney. 🌲
And because there’s a Pet Smart in the same shopping park, we first stopped by that store. Yup, dog food + Christmas tree shopping: totally the sort of exciting, deal-breaking shopping you’d typically do on Black Friday. 😂 At least there were no lines! 😉
