The Friday Five

Happy Friday from Hot-lanta! I'm hanging at the Haven Conference with so many fun and amazing blogger friends, hopefully soaking up some of their creative genius. What do you have planned for this glorious July weekend? Here's the randomness that is my Friday Five.

1) I've slowly ventured into the world of maxi dresses, but quickly realized I require petite sizing unless I want it to drag the ground like Princess Kate's wedding gown. #shortgirlproblems This cute chevron maxi comes in regular and petite sizes, and has the right mix of sass, comfort and sexy. It would look great with the fringe Kendra Scott look-a-like pendant that's only $18! And don't even get me started on the striped tote. #swoon

2) Hello cute cover-up for $26.

3) I've been on a serious roasted okra kick lately, but love the idea of grilling it! I would guess you just brush them with olive oil first? Have you tried it?


4) Thank you for all the sweet comments on our Refreshed Patio! For more outdoor inspiration, check out all the Home Depot Style Challenge participants here, including Grace's Porch with amazing DIY Beaded Chandelier!

5) Being in large crowds of women can be intimidating, so I've been reminding myself of this quote for the past few days.


What are your thoughts on maxi dresses? Are you a fan of okra, or is it a Southern thing? Happy weekend, lovebugs!


  1. I guess it is a southern thing because I could live on okra and sweet tea:)

  2. Love, love that outfit and the quote! Have a great time at the conference, can't wait to hear all about it!

  3. i love that maxi dress! I'm pretty short too so i only buy maxi dresses when i can try it on bc usually they draaag! have a great weekend! xo jillian - cornflake dreams 

  4. I love maxi dresses, but I can't pull them off. I bet you look so cute in yours!

  5. I love maxi dresses and I've never tried okra. :) I hadn't even heard about it until about 2 years ago. Is it spicy?

  6. Great finds. And, now you have me craving okra!! LOL

  8. As a fellow "short girl" I thought for a long time that I couldn't pull off the cute maxi dress look. But, I fell in love last summer and I haven't looked back. Also, they are perfect if the weather is 100 degrees outside, but your workplace likes to keep the AC set to 65. Top it with a denim jacket or cardigan and you are warm at work and can change easily when you head outside.

  9. Love the maxi! That would be so cute on you Cassie! Great quote. Have fun at Haven! I hope to have a blog by next year and attend Haven.

  10. I love the maxi dress! The designs are so vibrant and the view is so happy and cheerful.


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
