The Friday Five

You guys are the absolute sweetest!! You made my week with all your kind birthday comments and well-wishes. And I'm thrilled to hear I'm not the only one obsessed with the kitten-cardi! ;) From the sound of it, many of you have a full-blown collection of them!

In typical Texas-style, earlier this week we were enjoying 70-degree days, and last night it was 21!! That is serious and legit cold weather...I don't care where you live! We'll certainly warm up again, but there's no more straddling the line between seasons's sweater time!

1) I've seen a lot of sweater dresses this season, and I love them paired with a vest and tall boots. And cozy scarf #duh. It's a really pulled together look, but is still comfortable and casual. Do you have any sweater dresses? The color-blocking is fun on this one, and the price is right on.

2) This arctic blast kind of caught us off-guard, and when we went to pull out last year's Winter gear, we discovered it no longer fit! Darn kids and their constant growing!! Of course I immediately hopped online and pulled up Nordstrom's Cold Weather Shop, then clicked over to the 'sales' tab. My daughter found a coat that's 'not too poofy', and a cute hat and gloves set that she actually agreed to wear. Then she spotted hot pink Hunter wellies, and I totally caved and got them for her. Have I completely lost my mind?! #dontanswerthat Please tell me these boots are worth it!!

3) We actually had several snow and ice days last year, and none of knew what to wear...especially on our feet! I spotted lots of cute options to help keep our little people warm. Aren't the bright colors so fun?

4) Along with your seriously nice birthday wishes on Wednesday's post, I got a lot of questions about my lipstick color and hair. The lipstick is Mac 'Insanely It.'  I'm usually a drugstore make-up girl, but I couldn't resist this color, and I've had the same tube for years! As for my's a hot-mess right now and long overdue for a cut, but if I can get my act together, I'm planning a tutorial for how I style it on Monday. So get your curling irons and hairspray ready!

5) I had so much doing last week's Save vs. Splurge, I thought I'd find another for you...and it didn't take long! While browsing sweater dresses for the moodboard, I fell for this one...but couldn't even believe the ridiculous price (no offense if you own a $500 sweater dress!). But truthfully, I prefer the Save version much better...the shape is more flattering by hiding all the lady-lumps. It also comes in red and pink.

We'll be celebrating this weekend, and trying to stay warm! Thank you, friends, for such an amazing week...and don't forget to enter the sweet giveaway! Happy weekend, lovebugs!


  1. That color block sweater dress is adorable!

  2. That grey sweater dress is awesome! I'm thinking with black tights, cognac boots, and a black rayne necklace. Yes. I need it.

  3. i love your lip color too! thanks for sharing the name. xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  4. I've never thought to pair my sweater dresses with a cute vest and scarf - thanks for the inspiration! Looking forward to your hair tutorial, too. Have a great weekend!

  5. Do you style your hair differently on Mondays than you do on other days of the week?

  6. Just bought a pair of Hunter Rain boots for my daughter for Christmas (she's 21) black shiny and the grey sweater liners to go along with that gift. Thinking I should have got myself a pair!LOL We are having the same crazy weather in NJ Monday and Tuesday almost 70 and last night SNOW!!!

  7. Yay! So excited for your hair tutorial! Happy weekend! :)

  8. I adore that first sweater dress! I think you just cost me $60! :)

  9. You have not lost your mind! I thought I may have when I ordered Hunters for my daughter (while I'm still lusting for a pair for myself) but she has more than gotten my money worth out of them! She absolutely loves them and wears them ALL the time. Plus, they hold up SO well. Money well spent in my book! Or maybe that's just my way of rationalizing my craziness. :)

  10. Love the save, and wasn't surprised when I clicked on it and saw that it was Eliza J. I've bought three dresses by this designer this year.

    1. Ooooh! Good to know it's a well-liked brand! The price point is great!

  11. I love the gray sweater dress, the save version! Would be cute with tights, boots and maybe a strand of pearls. I noticed that pretty shade of lipstick you had on. Very flattering on you Cassie! Glad you had a good birthday and enjoy more celebrating this weekend!

  12. Yes Yes Yes! PLEASE post your hair tutorial on Monday!!

  13. Happy belated birthday! We've been in NYC, where it was warmer than Dallas! I may have to splurge on some Hunters for my girls, as well- their feet were chilly here, and it looks like we're in for another crazy cold winter.

  14. Love the sweater dress! Definitely a must-have for winter! I need to get some more!

  15. Wearing my kittie cardie as I write this! Love it and want to wear it everyday!


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
