The Friday Five

It’s Friday, my sweet friends! Both of my kids are finally on the mend, and it’s Mother’s Day weekend! Which is second only to my birthday weekend. Aka…it’s mama’s choice of what we do, where we go, and what we eat…all weekend long!! I’ve got a pretty good list, and most of it involves tacos. Let’s hop right in to the Friday Five…starting with this new top I’m cuckoo over…

1) Unfortunately, we keep going back to this picture…but once you recovered from the horror of seeing my attempts to dance…many of you wanted to know about the top I’m wearing. I found it a few weeks ago, and I’ve worn it no fewer than four times already. It has a nice blouse-type drape to it, a flattering racerback, and comes in 13 colors. Oh, and it’s only $28 with free shipping! #holla

It pairs really well with jeans or shorts for a casual weekend look.

Summer white & bright

2) It’s important to me that all my clothes are easily mix-and-matched for multiple looks, so here’s the same tank all dressed up. How cute is this striped skirt, too?!

brights and stripes

3) My step-sister is getting married next weekend, and I’m considering this maxi for the festivities. The model looks to be wearing it with these gorgeous sandals, or maybe these, but being vertically challenged, I’d have to wear it with these wedges from Banana Republic that I showed you last week. I’ve been talking about getting a maxi dress for months, but have yet to pull the trigger because I worry all that fabric will overwhelm my frame!? Of course I’d carry yellow balloons…you think the bride would mind?

4) Since this is my first maxi rodeo, maybe I’ll start with this striped one…especially since it’s on sale for $29! It comes in solid black, too.

5) Have you been following the rockstar bloggers participating in the recent One Room Challenge? Ohemgee…it is Before & After greatness! Every last one of them cranked out an amazing transformation, and serious eye candy. I’m especially impressed since I couldn’t even make over my underwear drawer in six-weeks…let alone a whole room! Linda created the ORC…so start your tour there.

Such an amazing group of bloggers, right?! I’m so inspired now, so look out underwear drawer, I’m coming for you! Are you inspired to transform a space? What about maxi dresses…are you a fan? Happy weekend…and the happiest of Mother’s Days…lovebugs!

  1. I MEAN, OF COURSE you'll carry yellow balloons. They are the perfect understated accessory! And listen…I think I'm going to have to buy the furbish tassel today. I have no idea how I held out this long!

    • It's a mystery to me…the tassel might even be life-changing!

  5. ps what size did you buy in the tank?! im usually a small…

    Posted 5.9.14 Reply
    • I would say it runs a tad big…so order down if you're in between. I went with an XS.

  8. LOVE maxi dresses! I hope it works out for you because you'll never want to wear anything else again. I just posted on Instagram yesterday that a maxi is the closest I can get to not wearing pants in public. πŸ˜‰

    Go for the blue/navy stripped Maxi. I've never done a maxi before either (short person) but this one was GREAT on. I passed on it at $68, but you can believe it is already in my shopping cart now!

  10. Once you wear a maxi dress, you'll never want to get out of them!! They are so cozy and perfect for so many occasions especially in our neck of the woods. I've been eyeing that printed maxi too ever since I saw it on Caycee's blog although I'll look nothing like her in it! πŸ˜‰

The Friday Five

Hey, friends…happy, happy Friday to you! It’s been a hot and busy week…made more painful by our air conditioner going out at home…on the day Texas decided to break 100-degrees! Why does it always happen like that?! Thank goodness for repairmen (no DIYing on the A/C!)…we are chilling again. Here’s what’s up this steamy Friday…

1) I love, love, love me some C.Wonder. What’s not to love about Tory Burch-esque products at affordable prices?! And I especially love when they have a super sale….like an additional 50% off all sale items! Here are some of my favorites from the sale…with prices as low as $3!

2) Is your keyring a mess of membership and rewards cards? I have so many on mine, I can hardly get to my keys. Mr. Sugarplum just found and loaded the Cardstar app on my phone…and 5 minutes later, my keyring was clean again! You just scan each of your cards (grocery stores, library cards, memberships, etc), and it stores them all for free. I’m not particularly techy…but I love when I find something that makes life run a little smoother.

3) I remember the best thing about the first day of school, was having a brand new notebook, perfectly sharpened pencils, and a cute new backpack. I’m a huge fan of the Land’s End packs…they cost a bit more, but last for several years. In fact, Babygirl has had hers for 3 years, and it’s still in great shape. The only reason she’s getting a new one is because she outgrew it! To get her excited about school, we sat down together and I let her choose her backpack, the color, and even the monogram style. She can hardly wait for the first day of school now!

Hi Sugarplum | Lands End backpack

4) I’ve watched this video about 50 times, and it makes me smile and chair-dance every time. Jimmy Fallon is cutest, the Roots are so talented, and Robin Thicke and that song….well, let’s just say, ‘Yum.’

5) The kids and I are headed to the beach tomorrow, and I’m trying to force myself to leave behind everything that plugs in or needs a charge. They are growing up so fast, and I want to savor these moments, not be distracted. Of course by the time Mr. SP shows up later in the week, I may be begging for a beer laptop.

a weekend sentiment..

    Great post today! Need the CardStar app SO much. You brought back memories of Lindy's excitement every year choosing new LLBean backpack color and monogram style. Video…adding Jimmy Fallon to anything just makes it better. Expect lots of pics on Instagram from beach – lots of fun times there with you when you were little sugarplums ages. And….I hate to be grammar police, but it drives me CRAZY when "lay" is used for "lie"…..love the sentiment, though!

  13. That song is awesome! Chair danced right along with it, enjoy your beach time and yes savor the time! xo

  15. I've heard great things about that app, thanks for motivating me to finally download it! My husband just laughs when he sees my key ring … he calls it my janitor key set. This will at least free up some of the space πŸ™‚

    Thanks for linking up with us, Cassie!

  16. Always love your five picks πŸ™‚

    Have been reading, but on my phone so haven't had a chance to comment. Just wanted to say hi!

    Happy weekend

    Whew – glad it's the weekend, too! But ya'll live in Big D – what beach are you going to for the weekend? Come on, 'fess up. Is it an ocean beach or a lake beach? We have Volente Beach here in Austin and it's a lake beach that they had to truck in tons of sand to create. But we moved here from South Texas where we went to South Padre Island every weekend with miles of ocean beach to frolic in….

    • Ha — lake beaches…yep, been to a few of those! We're going to the Gulf…a real beach, by Texas standards! πŸ˜‰
