The Friday Five

Wah-whoa-we-wah, am I glad it's Friday ... it has been a doozy of a week. I've had one kid down with the croup, another with insane sinus problems...along with some other sadness/drama I've been trying to deny. Anyway, it's catching up with me. Funny how life has a way of not letting you sweep it under the rug, huh? I think a weekend of family time will perk things up...okay, and maybe some retail therapy, too.

1) It's finally safe to pull the shorts out here, but still cool enough to pair with long sleeve shirts. I recently nabbed these graphic shorts, and plan to wear this exact outfit all weekend. Oh, and every single item shown is on sale! I've included the code if needed for the discount...the other links are automatically marked down. Ain't nobody got time for full price! And yes, I'm still putting that bag charm on everything.

Graphic Shorts (use code GETMORE) | Chambray Shirt (use code TREAT) | Crossbody Bag | Elephant Bag Charm | Tassel Necklace | Wedge Sandals (use code BRSPLURGE) | Sunglasses | Bow Bracelet | Watch 

2) Let's talk about those wedges, because they are so good they deserve their own post. I've been on the hunt for comfortable, neutral wedges for awhile, and almost settled on the Toms wedges, but they were a little tight across my fat toes. I hit the jackpot with these from Banana Republic...right height, comfy padded insole, stretchy straps for custom fit, and perfect neutral color to elongate the leg! I wore them all day during the conference last weekend, and apparently danced all night, and was so impressed by how comfortable they are. Use code BRSPLURGE for 30% off through this weekend. You're welcome.

3) Now that you've got the outfit and the wedges, let's talk about how to roll your long sleeves for this transitional weather. Because a properly rolled sleeve, and a popped collar, definitely ups the style factor in your outfit. My stylish friend Carly at C.Style shows us the simple steps to achieve the perfect J.Crew-style rolled sleeve. I just used the word 'style' four times in two sentences. Clearly I mean business.

4) Did you see the clever Freckles Chick Mudroom Reveal this week?! Girl didn't just make an existing space awesome...she completely converted the porch into a more usable (and awesome) space! It's never occurred to me to look outside my house for more rooms!! I also need her little fox hook in my life.

5) Ya'll know a good portion of my home decor comes from World this weekend is pretty much the Super Bowl for me. They are having their once-a-year Friends & Family Sale, where every single item, sale and full-priced, is 25% off (use code FNFSAVE)!!! I'll let you marinate on that a second.

Here are the items I'm considering...or have already brought home!

Hi Sugarplum | World Market Sale

a. Tufted Ottoman / add so much color and style to a room
c. Embroidered Dress / perfect cover-up for pool season

    Aw thanks for including my mudroom in your roundup, love!!! High praise coming from the details diva herself! I'm still sitting on my mudroom bench, waiting for you to swing by & share this wine with me. My sleeves are rolled accordingly.

    (Sidenote: I used to style windows for Abercrombie & Fitch straight out of college & this is how we were taught to roll sleeves on the mannequins! Straight up profesh right there.)
