The Friday Five

It's Friday...can I get a 'hollaaaaaaa!' Thanks so much for your comments and emails yesterday about our approaching trip...I added all your tips to the list!

1) Looking at beach pics has me dreaming of Spring outfits...does it get any Springier than pink + yellow? This is pretty much my weekend uniform as soon as the temps start to warm. I have these shorts in at least five colors (love them and the price!), and this jean jacket is a staple this time of year.

2) I lived in these wedge booties all Fall and Winter, and loved how they were not only stylish, but super comfy. And I got used to having the extra height! I figured since Toms has the comfy wedge down to a science, I need to add a pair of their wedge sandals to my wardrobe this Summer. There are so many cute ones to choose from, and they all have almost perfect reviews. Which do you like?

3) Don't you love when talented designers have blogs, and share their tips and tricks with us regular folk?! My friend Grace, at A Storied Style, has amazing taste and ideas, and recently showcased her inexpensive version of Acrylic Drapery Rods. The real-deal can run upwards of $750 per rod! #nevergonnahappen But clever Grace DIYed them for $65. You can bet your boots you'll be seeing this pop up in my house somewhere soon!

4) Jimmy Fallon is the perfect combination of adorably cute + laugh-outloud-funny. I love the sketches where Jimmy, the Roots and a popular singer cram into a tiny room, and perform a hit song using children's instruments. This 'Let It Go' with Idina Menzel is my new favorite. Girl can sing, dang!

5) Stefanie and Jennifer came up with a fantastic idea of a Favorite Things Exchange, and somehow I got invited to participate! They rounded up a group of home bloggers who just so happen to be moms, too. Each of us got secretly paired up with another participant and will spend the next few weeks thinking up what perfect "favorite thing" would make a great surprise for her. Kind of like a Secret Santa but without the holiday crush. Once the packages are opened, we'll share the loot just in time for everyone's respective Mother's Day shopping. I'm dying to know who has me, and would love your gift ideas to send my 'secret mama'!


Happy weekend, lovebugs!


  1. That rod is amazing and I'm intrigued to see how she made it! And, I do believe I too need a new pair of wedges. Have a great weekend, Cassie!

  2. Great roundup. Have a fantastic weekend.

  3. LOVE all of the wedges! i cant wait for summer! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  4. Love that Jimmy Fallon video - my girls have been singing that song for weeks!!

    I have been dyyyying for those Toms pee toes forever and I'm totally getting some this year - we'll call it an early Mother's Day gift to me!

  5. Do you have me, do you have me?? I'm so excited about this blogger exchange but the suspense is killing me! haha. Such a great idea to bring bloggers together.

  6. Okay, call me crazy, but I haven't had a jean jacket in years, and I really think I need one now. I mean why haven't I had one?! It's perfect to throw on over a tank or maxi dress, and I think I should get one for our upcoming trip.

  7. I've been trying to get those Tom's wedge booties for months now, always sold out of size 8. Finally got an alert from Nordstrom yesterday they were back in stock, but by the time I saw it 4 hours after they sent it they were sold out again! Think I better order the burlap version asap. And BTW, I took your advise and ordered the Vigoss jeans with the cute flap pockets and you are right, they look amazing :)

  8. Idina Menzel is amazing and I love jimmy Fallon too so them together is perfect!

  9. Those Jimmy Fallon singing skits also are my favorite! One of my other favorites is when they sing Blurred Lines with Robin Thicke. Jimmy Fallon always just looks like he is having a great time!

    Have a great weekend!

  10. I loved my Toms Booties all fall/winter too! I got the wedge platform in black and love them! Perfect for summer!

  11. Friday Fives are awesome, but this one is especially awesome. PINK and Jimmy Fallon this close to each other always makes me smile! Have a wonderful weekend!

  12. Awww Cassie, thanks so much for the shout out! I'm still loving my rods, and I will have an update on them soon! They have a new look at my house. ;) xoxo

  13. That DIY amazing. $65!? And I"m totally 100% with you on Jimmy Fallon.


Your comments are like popcorn with milk duds, I just can't quit them. Thanks for taking the time to share your positive thoughts! xoxo, cass
