The Friday Five

Hey friends, and happy Friday! I'm super excited about today...we're surprising the kids by taking them out of school early, and going to the State Fair of Texas! We never miss the Fair, but rarely do they miss school, so I can't wait to see their faces when they realize what we're doing.

1) A 'cool front' blew in last night, so I'll be wearing my Fall uniform...striped tee, scarf, and boots.

cozy fall


2) I met Caitlin of Desert Domicile at Haven this Summer, and she was the absolute sweetest. She recently revealed her stunning focal wall in her new Living Room. I love how her decor just pops off it. How gorgeous is her styling, too?!


Caitlin also just relaunched her Etsy shop of gorgeous agate coasters. The girl clearly has talent!!



3) I haven't done much in the way of Fall decor. Okay, I haven't done any. But I tend to get excited about Halloween in October, then Fall in November. We love Halloween around here (see past projects here)! World Market has the best decor for it...they actually make the holiday stylish. We're having a little party soon, so I'm stoked they just unveiled their Halloween Shop.


I rounded up a few things I plan to use for our little get-together.

4) Ya'll know my adoration of Kristin runs deep. I'm constantly amazed by her talent and style...and somehow we got lucky enough to get her help with our Big Box Bathroom renovation! She's been texting me progress shots of her Living Room for weeks, so I'm thrilled she finally revealed the full space. I love every single detail of the room, and love watching her on video even more! #givethatgirlherownshow



5) You guys seemed to really like the {5 Ways} White Jeans After Labor Day post...so I couldn't help but pull together another look for you. You may have noticed the jeans I was wearing in the post fit higher on the waist. I tried a new (to me) brand called NYDJ (Not Your Daughter's Jeans)...they have a bit more stretch to hold everything in, and are higher to avoid muffin top.

It took me a few wears to get used to them since I'm so accustomed to low-rise, but I must admit, it's nice to not worry about body parts falling out! (Tip: they ran big for me, so I sized down.) I can't wait to duplicate this outfit for myself!

I'm off to gorge on corn dogs and fried Oreos...happy weekend, lovebugs!

  5. You just made me feel so much better about my fall decorating....the boxes are down from the attic but the most I've done is burn a pumpkin spice candle! Have a great time at the fair! Hoping to take my kids for the first time this year!

  9. I love my white jeans. Only problem...they are boot cut. Skinny boot cut, but still boot cut. Just wondering....what kind of shoes? Any suggestions? Love your blog and endless inspiration!

    1. Hey Lori! I have some bootcut, too (so flattering!)...the skinny bootcuts I can usually wrap around my ankle and put a sock over so I can still tuck the jeans in knee boots. For the shorter boots, I think you need a heel and clean lines, then just wear them under your jeans. I also love pumps under bootcut jeans...but keep the toe more on the pointed, or rounded point, side...so they poke out from under your jeans. The really rounded toe pumps can get lost under the fabric, then you look peg leg. ;) xo

  11. You will be the cutest dressed at the state fair! I love fairs. Brings back memories of entering cakes, sewing projects, cookies and I did win several blue ribbons! Hope you had a great day today and indulged in all the fun fair food.

  12. I loved Kristin's video... and what a fun room!

    So happy for the cold front... it was a nice 65 degree morning at soccer! Did you guys get any of the crazy storms? A friend just posted a pic of the FW stockyards.. yikes.

    1. I haven't seen it...but for the price and free shipping/returns, I think it's worth the risk! ;) #enabler

  14. Oh shoot! I must not have posted right the first time. I am sure you were SOOO cute at the fair. I hope you post about it. We always go to our State Fair in late August. We are in MN, so it is the nationals largest/busiest State Fair. I strive to look cute, but COMFORTABLE shoes are a must.. and your darling booties (or wedges in the summer heat) wouldn't make it far at our Fair, and the bag would get knocked about in the heavy traffic and crowds. I REALLY want to see what your state fair is like. I always wonder about other states! Take Care!!!

    1. Hi Andrea -- we must be on the same wave length, because I posted about our day at the fair today! Along with what we wore! ;)

  15. I love the outfits you put together but would like to respectfully ask for fewer items from the Juniors section. Their XL only goes to size 12, and I need a little bigger. Bums me out when I click your links only to find I won't fit. :( Thanks in advance for your consideration.

    1. You've got it!! I usually link to those things because they are so much cheaper, and I always shop on a budget! But I'll be more aware about finding additional sizes and options, too! xoxo
