Friday Favorites

January 9, 2015

Happy Friday!  We survived our first week back to school and my first few days back at work.  It was awesome.  When we started doing some renovations downstairs I moved our computer up to the guest room and I'm loving having it tucked away.  I feel more productive when I actually set aside time to work and I feel less connected during the day when I want to be fully present with my family.





I've got lots of pretties here for you today!  10 of my favorite things of the week, to be exact.

1.  Mini-Foldover Cross Body.
I love when I get to categorize my lust items as both a want as well as a need.  I'm currently on the hunt for a small convertible cross-over bag that I can carry my important things in at all times, either inside a larger bag or on it's own.  It needs to be big enough to hold two epi-pens and anti-histamines, plus my keys and cell phone, and act as a wallet but still small enough to fit in a larger handbag.  Also, pretty but not ridiculous looking slung over my shoulder on walks around the neighborhood or at the playground.  Bonus, it would be something fancy with convertible straps so I could carry it as a clutch on date night.   And wait for it, I think this bag is the one.  After much searching both in person and online I found the perfect bag for me.  I love the beige color and that happens to be on sale currently.  Score.

2. Leopard Flats
I bought these leopard flats back at the end of November and love them.  I wore my last pair from Urban Outfitters out and this has been a great replacement pair.  They've got more of a loafer shape to them which is really fun with jeans for black pants. And these striped flats are also big time on my radar.  You know how I love a good stripe.

3. T.S.Harris Floating
The colors and the composition are divine.  I love love this piece of art and could see it fitting in perfectly in our family room or sun room with the navy sofas.  Big love on this canvas.

4.  Julia Clutch.  This is completely frivolous but it's oh so lovely.  Mint and snakeskin are such a fab combination.  And it's my name.  Gosh, how good would this be in so many instances come Spring.  Or with winter whites now?

5. Statement necklace
I ordered this necklace back right after Thanksgiving and I think I've worn it at least a dozen times since.  It's as pretty with a plaid button down and sweater as it with a little black dress.  Paired with these earrings.  Done.

6. Spotted ScarfIt is crazy cold and scarves are a daily staple. This one looks so cozy!  I also love the stripe version here.

7.  Warm Slippers
I have officially turned into the little lady who lives in her slippers.  It is just so dang cold already and I have the worst circulation.  Uggs are the only thing that keep my feet warm.

8. Tech GlovesIf you don't have tech gloves yet you are truly missing out.  I got a pair for Christmas and I am obsessed.  No more cold hands!  Love this pretty gray pair with the bows.

9. Clear the Clearance Sale
J.Crew Factory is offering an extra 30% off clearance items with code: SALETIME.  Pretty good time to score these turqouise pants and this navy sweater.  I also love this gorgeous lavender embellished sweater.  So feminine.

10. Bright Lips.  I'm officially a full fledged convert to the bright lip pink lip.  This is one of my favorites.

What's on your radar right now?  Are you taking advantage of all the great clearance sales or trying to hold tight until Spring?

It's so hard to wait especially when so many of these things will transition for the next several months at least!

  6. I am trying hard to save more in the new year but also currently have a gorgeous Trina Turk cape I posted about Friday on my radar, so we'll see what happens! It is currently 50% off, so I'm thinking if it is still available when payday rolls around next week I will chalk it up as meant to be and buy it!
