Today’s fun highlights:

  • Off of work AND it’s my birthday? How great can a Friday get?
  • I was looking through my past birthday posts on this blog (you’ll have to search for them yourselves…this blog has developed a ton), and a ton of things have happened on my birthday. Two years ago, we were in the middle of selling a house and buying a new one! Last year, I had been blissfully married for one year and two months and in our new house for roughly a year (and drinking sangria). This year nothing is new, but everything is still wonderful (and I’ll probably be drinking sangria later)!
  • This weekend, The Husband and I are head to St. Louis again. We went last year (check out my favorite spots in this post) in mid-July, and it was so freaking hot (99 degrees!) that we didn’t get to do/enjoy some of the things on our list! So we thought we’d go back in early June and enjoy some pleasant weather…the joke is on us, because the high tomorrow is…97 degrees!
  • So a lot of shade-seeking and cold drinks/cold treats are in our future! ;)
  • Oh, and a new pair of perfect shorts never hurt anyone! ;)

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. These striped sandals are the things that style dreams are made of. Striped, flat, and comfy…yes, please!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Someone explain to me how Taylor looks so great in basic tees? Anyone?
  3. I love a top with details, and this Caslon top has some great embroidery! It also comes in several color options and perfect for summer!
  4. This is an old article written by Jenna Lyons, but I just discovered it…and we all know how much I love her. But did you know a watermelon skirt changed her life? See, we’re all humans after all! ;)
  5. Item No. 435 that I love from Tommy Hilfiger: this contrasting trim cardigan that comes in 4 colors…now which color should I get?!
  6. I think The Limited is spying on me…and knows about my undying love for red, blue, and stripes. Need this dress (please come back in tall sizes)!
  7. My brother has Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook (here) at his apartment, and when we were there last month, I flipped through it. Uhhh…it looks amazing, so I totally need to get my own copy and follow this lady’s lead and cook with it only for a week! Yummmm!
  8. Three words: affordable. scallop. flats! Someone stop me from buying them ALL (especially the leopard print…surprisingly cute)!
  9. I dare you to NOT cry when you watch this little girl unbox her new look-a-like doll. Spoiler alert: all the tears over here! What a great company and a great way to feel “normal.”
  10. This striped midi dress is absolutely gorgeous! I’d wear it to work with heels and a blazer, and on the weekend with a denim jacket and wedges! Snag it before all the stripe-obsessed bloggers do! ;)

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. This gingham print shirtdress is all you need this summer (for BBQs, date nights, brunch with the girls, farmer market strolls). Alright, all I need for summer then! ;)
  2. Blogger love of the week: OBSESSED with this black and yellow combo on Nicole (and that graphic print wall)! But more importantly than her amazing outfit? Her amazing attitude! Wear the pretty things and enjoy them…life’s too short to do anything else!
  3. These wedged sandals are perfect for all those summer dresses and skirts I plan to rock all season long, and they come in solid colors and flamingo or pineapple prints!
  4. I love The Everygirl’s style posts, and this one on how to wear shorts was no exception! I would love to see more sites/magazines take after them and show diversity body types when showcasing different items!
  5. In honor of Mother’s Day this weekend and the fact that moms (and dads too) are the best, here is the cutest tribute to the little things that moms do! Grab a tissue, Schmom, you’re going to need it!
  6. And on that note, if you’re still looking for a Mother’s Day gift for your mom (I know I am), here’s a great gift list full of under $50 selections!
  7. Kate Middleton…on the cover of Vogue…looking amazing (annnd I need that navy/red stripe top, please)!
  8. How does one choose between a gingham print reversible tote and a poppy print reversible tote? Asking for a friend…
  9. Oh, Gatorade! I thought I had made it through all the Peyton Manning retirement tributes without crying, but this #dearPeyton spot got me good! All the feels!
  10. Try not feeling like you’re headed on a tropical vacation while wearing this blouse…and it might even make you feel that way at work (no promises though)!

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. Gingham trench coat? On sale? Say what?
  2. Blogger love of the week: I love seeing people give back, so I loved reading about how Jess shared some of her time (and styling tips, I’m sure!) with this Chicago-based organization that works to provide free clothing and self-esteem to girls enrolled in Chicago’s inner city schools. You go, Jess!
  3. Loft sold a similar pair of these beautiful stripe espadrilles last season, and they sold out so fast! They’re one of my favorite spring/summer shoes, so get them while they’re still in stock!
  4. I could not stop laughing at this Buzzfeed article called “me as a wife.” Mainly because I could related to nearly 100% of them, but oh my gosh. The last one (#19) is me to a T. I pride myself on my annoying capabilities. 
  5. Do you guys ever watch those HGTV or TLC shows where they buy these terrible houses and then turn them into masterpieces. I’ve ALWAYS wanted to do that (and have no skills whatsoever in that department) and wondered exactly how much work goes into it. Anyone else? Luckily for us, Cassandra is spilling the beans (here) on The Everygirl!
  6. I need to try on this dress on the next time I’m at Target to see if it would be long enough. If it works, it would look equally great under blazers for the office and jean jackets for the weekend!
  7. A new episode of Miss Adventure from Kate Spade is out! I need to plan a girls’ weekend like this…and accessorize the entire time with Kate Spade! ;) Anyone else in?
  8. I’m loving how classic, but different than every-other-navy-blazer-ever, this blazer from Maison Jules is (here). I know that didn’t make ANY sense, but you should check it out if you like nautical/prep style and/or need a navy blazer! ;)
  9. Pantone (everyone’s favorite color obsessor) has put together a list of the top 10 colors for spring 2016. I know, I know…everyone is so surprised that I’ll be wearing Snorkel Blue and Fiesta all spring…and really, all year, long!
  10. Everyone has been obsessed with the J.Crew Gemma ballet flats this season (see them here), and they’re a bit pricey, so I found a great dupe for under $40 here! They come in lots of colors and one pretty floral print!

The Closest You Can Get to Wearing a Blanket Out in Public

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Off of work today, which is great, because of this…
  • You know that point in the middle of winter where you just want to wear your pajamas out in public because it’s too unbearable to leave the warmth of your pajamas and put on new (and cold) clothes from your closet? I’ve reached that point.
  • Insert this cardigan that was a gift from my in-laws for Christmas. It’s super soft, super warm, and as close as you can get to wearing a blanket in public and still having it be socially acceptable!
  • Unless you are Lenny Kravitz, and then you can do this here.
  • Did you guys see that there is a new Oreo flavor coming out?? Cinnamon Bun. So basically most of my whole weekend will be spent trying to find these.
  • The other part will be attending my niece’s first birthday party! Whaaaaat? I’m not even her mom, and I’m over here being like where did the time go?
  • And go, Broncos, go! Beat the Patriots!
