Your Black Friday Just Got Better: ft Lauren James Mystery Box

The Christmas creep is real & each year, Black Friday seems to creep in earlier & earlier. While I am not planning to abandon my Turkey Day meal to slush outdoors {anytime before ten pm anyways} there is something--some shopping you can do in your post-turkey pants in front of your computer screen. It's with Lauren James!

{Note, this post is in collaboration with Lauren James All opinions are mine}

This Black Friday, Lauren James is offering shoppers the chance to unbox a Mystery Box packed {really, it's packed} with LJ apparel. The best part is it's only $40.00.

I had a chance to pre-unbox a Mystery's what was inside mine & my thoughts on if you should jump online & buy this Black Friday Deal up.

This is the size of the box that comes-I gift wrapped it! 💙

Inside My Lauren James Mystery Box: 

1. Bradford Soft Shell Jacket {Glacier Blue} retailing $72.00

2. The Ellison Vest {Gray with navy gingham lining} retailing $78.00

3. Sea to Shining Sea Long Sleeve Tee {seafoam} retailing $36.00

4. Gingham Shorties {orange} retaling $10.00 

5. Draw String Shorts {Lilac Flower} retailing  $24.00

6. Gold Tulip Printed Tumbler retailing $20.00

7. Burgandy Velvet Key Fob retailing $10.00

8. Stickers!

The Ellis Vest & Sea to Shining Sea Long Sleeve Tee 💙

As you can see, what's inside the box is well over the total $40.00 price of the LJ Mystery Box. It's a pretty good deal--even if you wanted to gift one to a friend, sister, Big, Little, or to yourself. Basically, wrap the packaged box {as is} & you're done. The cons to getting this box are that you don't know what's inside--of course, you'll pick the size you want, but the rest is up to the LJ team. The pros are kind-of similar to the cons, the fact that's it's a surprise is pretty fun. Plus, you know the quality is great {all Lauren James is}.

All in all, if you're a big fan of the brand & want to treat yourself {someone else} to an affordable Black Friday deal that looks like you spent a ton, but only $40.00 I'd say it's worth it! If you like 100% control of what you're buying/gifting it's probably not the promotion for you.

Note, the jacket & shorts run on the smaller side; I am usually a small-medium & I ordered a medium--in the shorts, I would def go up a size & with any jackets especially if you like to layer. 💙
