The Friday Five

Happy Friday from 30k feet! I'm wrapping up this post en route to a bachelorette weekend to celebrate my sister's wedding next month. #aintechnologygrand Pop over to InstaGram or Facebook to see where we landed if you want. Here's a random roundup for this Friday Five.

1) I'm wearing this uber-comfy, but still pulled-together, outfit for traveling. I swear this dress feels like's lightweight so I don't overheat waiting for the captain to turn on the air, but stay covered when he decides to turn it on arctic blast. Honestly, are there only two temperatures on an airplane?!

I managed to pack four days worth of stylish outfits in a single carry-on (see my tips here and here)...I'll post some on InstaGram in the next few days, but will share here soon, too.

2) You know that I participated in the {One Room Challenge} with 19 other bloggers every Wednesday (see the complete list here), but did you know almost 150 other talented bloggers linked up with Linda on Thursdays? I'm only about half way through the list of pure eye-candy, but here are some of my favorites so far...

3) North Texas has gone from drought to drowning in the last month...seriously, I'm checking Pinterest on how to DIY an ark. We started out thinking it was great and saying things like, 'Oh yes, we really needed this rain!' Now I'm just over it, and ready for hot, dry Summer! World Market's new outdoor collection isn't making it any easier...I'm ready for picnics and backyard decorating! Just click each pic for item link...fancy, right?!

4) So of course all that Summer wishful thinking got me dreaming of swimsuits, cover-ups, and cute pool/beach bags. I prefer to have a cover-up that passes for street clothes so you can transition easily without being totally exposed. I have these exact flip-flops, and the brand is hands-down my very squishy!

Same goes for the guys...Mr. SP wears board shorts that look like regular clothes when paired with a shirt. I've got him hooked on Havianas, too. He's had one pair for 5 years...those suckers last forever! I think I may snag this cap for myself.

5) Okay, so I started out pretty casual about this whole 'Top 25 Finalist' thing in Redbook's Real Women Style Awards...just shocked flattered to be included. But in the last few days, a couple of the other nominees have launched some kind of intense campaign, and they are waaaay ahead of me!

So now my competitive nature has kicked in, and I want it!! Or at least I want to know I gave it a good Texas-try. My mom's daily vote isn't getting it done. ;) So if you're a fan of my style and inspired by the style posts, then please, please, please hop over and vote for me. #Illbeyourbestfriend It's super simple...just scroll down and click my pic. Once it opens, click the little gray heart in the bottom right corner...and done!

Thank you so, so much, and happy weekend, lovebugs!


  1. YES! THAT MAXI IS DARLING! And your new Barrington Bag is perfection.

  2. I voted (again!). Have fun in the big should be perfect weather... none of that wet Texas stuff. ;) I'll wave to you from PA!

  3. I don't know why I never thought of wearing a maxi dress for travel. We have a plane ride coming up in a few months and you've just given me the inspiration to wear a maxi for uber-comfort. Perfect!
    Have a great weekend!

  4. i love that blue maxi dress! have a great trip :) xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  5. Cassie, I found you through the one room challenge and you are quickly becoming one of my favorite bloggers - much to my husband's dismay as I've spent much more money since following you! Our styles are so similar and now you do the legwork for me :) Enjoy the bachelorette party and keep the fantastic posts coming! I'm off to contemplate that retro cooler...

  6. I will vote for you every day, but, as most of us are - im so busy! I will not remember on my own, be shameless- put a reminder at the top of each post for us? We love you, it wont be annoying. Promise!

  7. Love the stripped canvas bag! I'm a sucker for a great tote. Maxi dress is a great way to go for airplane travel - I agree on airplane ac!! P.S. I did cast my vote over at Redbook for you as I love your style!

  8. Of course I just voted! Just wondering...the cute black and white swimsuit seems to link to a different suit when you click on it? I'd love to know where you got it. Thanks!

    1. Yes, I am wondering the same thing! Love that swimsuit and need a new one for an upcoming trip. Please share the info with us Cassie!

    2. I found it!!!

  9. I've been voting for you! I love your style. I also own those leopard havianas and adore them! Have a great time in NYC.

  10. Hi, Cassie. I completely freaked out this morning when I saw my laundry room on your blog! Thank you so much for sharing the room, and I'll be seeing you on the cover of the September Redbook, no doubt! (It's still raining in Dallas, sigh...)

  11. Have a great trip!!! And yes.... This rain has got to go. I don't know what to do with myself. Thanks for including me! Xoxo

  13. Hey mama! Thanks for the shout...all of my favs too! Voting for your cute self and crossing fingers! Hope that you're having fun in the big apple...xoxo

  14. You travel more than anyone I know. I'm a bit jealous of that. Love your picks.....on everything. Have a fun weekend.

  15. Thanks so much for the shout-out sweet lady! Hope you had an awesome time in NYC!!

  16. so cute - on the flip flops - do they run true to size? and does the plastic straps ever seem to bother the inside of your toes? the ones I've had before do but I've only bot cheap ones so wondering if that is the cause.

  17. Happy blog anniversary! I love seeing your posts highlighting what you wear. You have great style. Keep up the great work!

  18. These are my favorite posts! I think I've read just about all of them and I just started following your blog a week, if not less than that, ago. The Friday Five give me a chance to see what you love in the moment. I don't have the time to read every post but I feel like these zoom in on what you're loving. Thank you so much for sharing all your talent and passion with us! And Happy Anniversary!!!


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
