Friday Favorites #59

Happy Friday my sweet friends! I'm guessing some of you may already be enjoying your long weekend. Be sure to take a few minutes to think of all those who have heroically given their lives so the we can enjoy our freedoms.

Do you have big plans this weekend? A BBQ or family gathering? We are going to some friends tonight, but other than that we will just see where the weekend takes us. This was our first full week in the last 3 weeks after being on vacation and now we get another break next week. I think Kent is going to be spoiled. LOL

It wouldn't be Friday if I didn't link up with some blogger babes for Friday Favorites, so let's take a look and see what things made my list this week.


I received my first Sephora Play box in the mail. Well technically it came a few weeks ago, but it was at my neighbors and I just got it this week. I'll do a full review of the products in a week or so once I've had a chance to use them.


I know this is a terrible quality picture but it makes me so happy!!! Benny and Erin had both been out of town and apart for a week. She got back last night and they sent me this. You can just see how happy they are to be back together.


I found this cute flutter sleeve top at the Loft outlet last weekend. Just the words flutter sleeve make me happy and  I immediately knew it would be perfect to go with these cropped skinny chinos I recently picked up on a trip to the mall at the regular Loft store. These pants are a great everyday pant and alternative to jeans. They have just the right amount of give and like most of my other Loft pants they stretch out just the right amount when wearing them and then bounce back when taken off. Sounds like magic, right? I guess you could say these pants are magical.


Katie and I were working out one day this week and I was singing, well more like lip syncing and didn't quite know all the words. Katie was all too happy to tell me to learn the words. Have you ever heard if you don't know the words to a song your supposed to fill in with "watermelon"?


Another day Katie and I were out walking and talking about our workouts and abs and I gave her this sage piece of advice.

Nordstrom Sale Picks

You know one of my favorite words is SALE!

Nordstrom is having their half yearly sale and it's almost like the anniversary sale is getting a little head start. I've combed through pages of items and found some of the things that I like and caught my eye. If you are looking to update your spring and summer duds this is the perfect opportunity to add some of the latest trends or just some good all around pieces. Most of the items are 40% off. 

I don't think I need to do much commentating on these so I'm just going to share the items and the links unless I just can't help myself. I found trends, accessories, trendy shoes, and a couple of dresses that would be perfect for upcoming graduations and weddings.

This necklace is a great dupe for a Kendra Scott necklace.

This cute tee has 2 of the big trends for spring. Cold shoulder and it ties at the waist. Bobeau tops are known for their uber soft fabrics that make them oh so comfy.

I really like the double ruffle around the sleeves of this top.

This ruffle sleeve top is the same one I'm wearing in the picture below. It has the cutest tie back and when I put it on to wear it to Baccalaureate, my friend just fell in love with it. So many cute details on one shirt and now it's a real steal.

This tassel necklace is perfect for incorporating the tassel trend into your spring and summer wardrobe and at just under $34, it's a great deal.

I really wish I needed another dress (or two) because I just love both of these.

Okay, I finally had to make myself stop. There's good stuff to be had people. Some of these would make great graduation gifts.

Happy Thursday and happy shopping!!!

What I Wore Wednesday #8

I can't begin to tell y'all how happy I am that I finally found a pair of white jeans that I love and that they are the right length. When you're a short girl, finding jeans with a shorter inseam can be a real challenge. Here's a little secret...sometimes I get ankle jeans/pants and they are completely the right length. I'm not sure if that's a happy or sad thing...LOL

I grabbed them yesterday and threw on a cute black top with my leopard sandals and was ready to roll. (and don't you just love my water hose under the bench?πŸ˜‚) 

I love the frayed hem and black and white are a timeless combination. This mixed media top comes in a pretty blue or red and is the perfect weight for warm summer days. I actually bought this top last year and when I checked they had the exact same one this year. That tells you it's a great piece to add to your summer rotation. It's packs great and doesn't hold on to wrinkles. 

I just picked up my new sunglasses last Saturday and I love them. Mine are prescription and I'm not even ashamed to say that they are bifocals. I'm owning my aging eyes. These are the same maker and I think the exact pair I'm wearing.

We've been having really warm temperatures, which I love. Not much makes me happier than warm temperatures and being in the sun. If I can't live at the beach, I can at least enjoy the sun and warmth in my own backyard.

We've made it to Wednesday which means Friday is just around the bend and have a 3 day weekend to look forward to.

Navy Lace Dress

For the last two years we've had a graduate to celebrate and a graduation ceremony to attend, and for the last two years I've bought new dresses that when the day came, it was too cold to wear them. Insert all the sad faces here. As if it isn't stressful enough just trying to decide what to wear, then you've got the weather to worry about on top of that. 

I ordered this beautiful navy lace shift dress from Loft to wear to Benny's college graduation 2 weeks ago but thankfully I had a backup packed and didn't have to freeze my tutu off.

I was able to wear the navy dress to church on Sunday and had Katie grab some shots after we got back home. My exact dress appears to have sold out, but you can find two super cute options here and here.

I paired my favorite Kendra Scott hot pink necklace and earrings along with my new hot pink shoes to add some pops of color. These sandals are the perfect heel height. Tall enough to be eye catching, but just low enough to make walking in them easy and comfortable. 

 dress options 1, 2 / necklace / earrings / shoes

It was cooler in the morning and I'm always cold inside (except for the occasional hot flash) so I added my white jean jacket for warmth.

dress options 12 / necklace / earrings / shoes

I had also ordered a couple of fun new bracelets from Kinsley Armelle to have for summer and they came in time to pair with this dress. I've already worn them numerous times and love how colorful they are. They've provided me with a code (CoasttoCoast2) to share with my readers for 15% off your entire order. They have really fun, unique pieces at a very reasonable price point.

I'm pretty sure I'm really going to enjoy this dress this summer. I already wore it again yesterday.

Here's to a great day!
