Friday Favorites

You must pardon me and my lack of creativity today. While I wanted to rush home from work and create a lavish blog post, I had no choice but to prioritize on Puna. You see, I spent yesterday evening doing yard work. It was starting to look rather sketch around the property in Flyboy's absence. He keeps the place looking oh-so snazzy whenever he's around; it's kinda his "thing." I, on the other hand, can think of about a gazillion different ways to procrastinate when it comes to pulling weeds and clipping blades of grass. I like to keep my productivity interesting, like fritter time away on Pinterest or watch hours of Pregnant in Heels. Side Note: Aren't these people ridiculous? Even Beesly gets annoyed by the awful couples bickering and the bounty of bratty children -- just another clue that this household isn't quite ready for kids. You know there's a problem when your dog buries her head in the carpet because she can't bear to watch the madness. I promise you, this happens EVERY time we watch the show. Anywho, I'll get back on track with the post and introduce you to a few of my favorite pieces from J.Crew's latest summer collection. I'm sure you saw this coming, but I get easily excited by the monthly Style Guide. Have you seen it? The layout, fresh looks, bright colors, classic pieces with a quirky twist -- what's not to love?

Heart Me Tippi -- Why wear your heart on your sleeve?
Tippi Cardigan -- I can't tell you how excited I am about this. The Tippi is my favorite sweater.
Studs & Buds -- How gorgeous is this Flower Lattice necklace? 
Pom-Pom Shell -- I will own this! It's such a versatile piece with a precious mod shape and adorable neckline.
Polka-Dot Kicks -- I saw these and squealed a little.
Awning Stripe Skirt -- It reminds me of Anne Cramer's boutique. I've been coveting her pieces for awhile.
Wixon Purse -- Bright pop of color and sweet round shape. Have-to-have-it holdall, indeed!
Hyacinth Necklace -- Hand crocheted by Orly Genger, it's nautical chic with a boho twist.

Now that I got all of that Crew excitement out of my system, just a few notes to share with you...
  • Be sure to check back this weekend -- I've got a special tribute to my dad in the works for Father's Day. 
  • The blog turns one on June 17th! Eek! In honor of this momentous occasion, I've got a giveaway that will begin on Monday. What better way to jump start your week? There will be five winners. In the words of Jim Carrey in Dumb & Dumber -- "So you're telling me I've got a chance..."

Any exciting plans for the weekend?

  1. I spent hours looking at the new JCrew summer line yesterday and had many of the same favorites. I was putting things left and right into my shopping cart. :-) Now, here's to hoping the hubby walks by the computer and surprises me with something off of my wish list! Am I the only one that does that?

    Happy 1 Year Anniversary! Excited about the giveaway on Monday!

    Love reading your blog!

  2. I want a pair of Superga's! I'm between the rattan and navy the pattern, however chances are that they'll sit in my closet while I admire them!
