FRIDAY FAVORITES.....FRESH FLOWERS


Holy Guacamole! It’s Friday! Remember on Monday I was excited to show you my Newbie's Guide to Trader Joe's! Well, you were right when many of you said you loved the chuncky quac! I literally could’ve eaten it all in one sitting…it is soooo good. This week started with so much cold and flurries that pool install got halted again and more Baseball games got cancelled. Finally, next week calls for our normal highs, which is 60. I just keep on channeling it…like with my Floral Jumpsuit from Wednesday and fresh flowers around…

1. Fresh Flowers
It's just too darn cold to for any planting in the dirt yet so I continue to buy bunches of fresh flowers to keep in the house. They last two weeks or longer and this vase was a clearance Target item for under 10 bucks, I love keeping it on the kitchen counter!



2. OpalHouse
In LOVE with this affordable home decor line at Target like you would not believe. A young mother and I bonded over it for an hour smelling all their candles one day. Here are my purchases...so far and ones on my wish list.

Artificial Palm in gold vase HERE Rattan
(MY FAVORITE ITEM)


In Store only but I LOVE this little slate blue vase.

BUY HERE
(temporarily out of stock but some in store and they assured me they will one back, got several as gifts)

Rattan Basket HERE
(I have pillows and a blanket in mine, LOVE it)

CANDLE HERE
(This was with all the OH stuff but is not but it looks like it and literally is one of the best tropical beachy smelling candles I have ever burned. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!)

HERE IS MY OPAL HOUSE WISH LIST
3. Week's Attire
Many of these pieces are older so just telling you what I was doing on these days.

The 2 Photos below were taken with AMAZON LOOK, I can ask Alexa to take my picture. So great for when selfie's get old or I have no boys around to take my pics. Mr. Nine got it for it for me for Christmas and we just set it up, love it! You have to request an invitation for it, but it is worth it!

4. Chunky Spring Cardigan
This Cardigan is so so comfy and they have great color choices (UNDER $20) and the white linen tee is now a favorite. Swapped pumps for Espadrille on the trip to Trader Joe's. These chunky cardi's are great for spring and summer because there is alot of breathing room and I feel they are kind of beachy!

RIP BARBARA BUSH
I am a huge fan of the Bush Family and their fierce loyalty, family values and message of kindness and love. I shed a couple tears this week over Barbara Bush’s death, aching for George Sr. to lose his wife of 72 years!! Once she said of her dear husband regarding the first time she saw him, “I could hardly breathe, he was so beautiful!”




HAPPY WEEKEND and Guess what Monday is on the blog? My Walk-In Closet Tour!!!

  6. You definitely have an eye for the good stuff! And how cool that you can get a picture when nobody else is around! Fancy! All your flowers are so pretty. Maybe I should grab a bunch, I need a little spring color in my life. All of these gray days are driving me batty! Have a fabulous weekend! xoxo

  11. Happy Friday, sweet friend! Those flowers are so beautiful, much like you!! We don't have a Trader Joe's too close by, but one in a neighboring city that I've been to twice and loved! Making a mental note to pick up that chunky guac the next time we have the chance to pop into one! I'm leaving this post so teary eyed after reading both her quote and the Barbara Bush's words on the first time she saw her husband! How precious is that?! Love it, and love you! Have a happy weekend ahead, my dear! xo!

  15. Love that last outfit! That mug is also really cute. That is pretty cool about Alexa too. My in-laws have one and love it. I also told Chris that I was thinking about getting a tripod so that I can take outfit photos during the week when he's at work. :-) Anyways.. have a lovely day today and a wonderful weekend. YAY to spring arriving around here too!!!

  16. I loved that you ended this with the blurb about Barbara and the quote. She was quite the woman, and truly inspirational!!

  19. Happy Friday!! Fresh flowers are a favorite of mine. It's a great way to bring some spring inside. This one has been so rough and so delayed this year :( Loving your looks for the week and those comfy cardis. I hope you have a great weelend filled with some sunshine! Sierra~Beautifully Candid

  20. I love your lunch with a friend outfit; I've been toying with trying Amazon Look myself. I need some new clothes. I too have been buying flowers. I did buy a potted tulip plant hoping the ground would warm up enough for me to transfer it outside but that's not looking good. We had some flurries and ice yesterday. It sounds like mother nature is just against spring this year.

  21. Carnations are my favorite! They're so affordable and last pretty long too. Always love your fabulous week's attire and the chunky cardigan looks so comfy! Can't wait to see your walk-in closet reveal on Monday! I'm sure it's out of this world gorgeous! Happy weekend pretty lady! Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  23. I have been keeping my eyes open for a basket like that to store my blankets in. I love the that one!

  24. I was sad to see Barbara Bush pass as well. Huge fan of hers. I love the Gillian and O'Malley line from Target!! They are always so soft and cozy. I love that new decor line too and was scoping a few pieces out the other day but decided to wait until we move to make any more home purchase. Unless something is on super clearance haha. Cant pass that up! Hope you have a great weekend!

  25. I love the OPalHouse stuff, too! Everything Target does is golden!

  26. I have been adding fresh flowers to the house too because it's helping with the "lack of spring" lol. I completely forgot to add Barbara Bush to my favorites this week too. I just finished Sisters First (Jenna Bush's book) and loved hearing the stories about her. She seemed like such a force. I also love that quote by her! Happy Friday :-)

  34. I can't get enough of cozy cardigans either! Yours is super cute! I love keeping fresh flowers in the house too. Lilies and carnations can last so long in a vase and really help bring the feeling of spring even when the weather is bad!

  35. I never have fresh flowers in the house, but my sweet five-year old keeps asking his dad if he can buy me some. I think we should let him!! Cute outfits, Andrea! You look beautiful as always.

  36. You learn something every day, an today I learned about Amazon Look. What a great find to a popular fashion such as yourself! Does it come with a skinny lens. If so, I'm ordering one pronto! Have a wonderful weekend, dear Andrea.

  37. Hey Andrea! I have absolutely got a new phrase now - 'Holy Guacamole' has officially hit Cumbria's shores and I will be over-using it for a very long time. I had no idea about Amazon Look either - sounds like a great idea. My favourite outfit bits and bobs this week have to be your tassle necklace and I LOVE the PJs. I have also added Trader Joe's to my list of American companies that need to invade the UK - this is added on to Target, Taco Bell and J Crew (all stores currently in London - BOO). Finally, just have to say I have 'seen' Barbara twice in the flesh (which is quite something for a Brit) - as I went to the George Bush School of Government at Texas A&M - the year the presidential library opened - where all the living presidents attended, it was pretty impressive, loads of Hollywood A-Listers too. Barbara was so statuesque and impressive. J x

  41. Fresh flowers are wonderful, just brighten up the day! Our local Kroger has the best flowers. Cute outfits! The pictures that Alexa took are very clear and sharp. Wish she could clean my house...ha! I'm looking forward to the closet tour! xoxo

  42. I just love that palm in the gold pot! I may need that in my home! Ha! I just don't know where I'd put it. Hmm. I really need to be better about buying fresh flowers! I just love that Target eyelet PJ set. I've been wanting a new summery PJ set! That quote by Barbara Bush is so, so true.

  45. I just switched out my winter cardigans with my spring ones. So many cardigans - but I love them! I try to keep fresh flowers in the house too - we have to get spring where we can, right?

    ReplyDelete
  46. You look fabulous in all those outfits, Andrea. Even the lounging round the house outfit!
    Target really do have the best stuff, don't they? I loved having a look in there when I visited in January.
    Hope you have a magical week, my dear pal!
