FRIDAY FAVORITES...APRIL IS ROLLING


Can you believe April is rolling by this quick? We actually have had a nice warm front these last couple days but highs of 40’s again this weekend. I’ll take what I can get especially outside workouts!! It is Friday the 13th but I’m not superstitious so let’s all have a super sweet Fri-YAY!!  

1. More Gal Pal Fun
In no particular order, let me gush over 3 more of my favorite peeps. I literally could do entire posts on how much so many of you mean to me and how your blogs enrich people’s lives. I was so excited to receive 3 more boxes of packages this week from these amazing friends of mine who I am hoping to meet in person sometime. 

How fun are these goodies and The Flip Floppies match a new cover up I got!!! Just love Navy and coral together! 

Look at those FIT legs!

I call this hysterically hilarious and real beauty my lil sis. I’m honored to be the Big Sis. This girl keeps me motivated to never give up the fitness quest. We share a love of pineapples, Country music, football, bodies of water, digging in the dirt and positivity. I’m telling you what, you are in for a treat when you read her BLOG. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this peach should write a book! I’d be first in line for my autographed copy. 

Just look this pineapple goodness and I needed beach towels!! The earrings happen to match the early birthday gift from her, you may remember :  The Pineapple Shoes!
You can BUY them in a different strap shade HERE

My precious Floridian friend, Kellyann warms my heart and 13 happens to be her favorite number! Boy do we have stuff in common too; same fashion sense, a love of cooking and baking (she makes my recipes!), fitness, and teen/college boys. This girl is a counselor by day and fun loving, wonderful mother and wife by night. She can shop til she drops and always looks so put together. Her words and support lift me up. Such a true friend! You must check out her fashionable and fun BLOG, I mean the name in itself is so awesome and stylish. 

Kate from Green Fashionista
This girl knows we go on our beloved Lake Michigan vacation every summer & gets me goodies to take along! Just look how cute this pom drink holder and jet set travel bag are! 
Another precious Floridian (former Connecticut girl) friend of mine, Kate, was one of the first bloggers I read when I started blogging. This girl is fit and fierce. We share a love of sunshine, our pink Rebecca Minkoff clutch, poolside cocktails, leopard, fitness, travel, brunch and all things Champs! Oh, how we love our Champagne! Kate and her hubby have the most fun weekends and the most precious little girlie! And she is real life great friend of my darling Emily. Can’t wait to hug em’ both one day in person. Her BLOG is so chic!


2. Books
I am so grateful to have the time to read again and am going to my new library soon to sign up for a card. Thanks to Amazon Prime, and the pile I had growing, I have read several goodies in the past month like
However, this one, Liar was my favorite. Currently I am reading
The Woman in the Window So, I'll have to let you know what I think. I have found that blogger friends book recommendations are the most honest. 

BUY HERE

3. Week's Attire
You want to dress for the weather you want but you have to dress for the weather you have. LOL. 

Similar Vince Camuto Booties HERE & HERE


Free PeopleTop HERE // Blush Slip on Shoes HERE // Blush Lace Bralette HERE


Sole Society Romy Boots HERE // JCrew top // Target sweater


 Zella Leggings // Vince Camuto Booties // Cardi from TJ Maxx in the athletic section

4. Free People Aster Henley
Love this Henley, especially for the comfort and the color but my favorite thing is the Free People Adella Bralette underneath! 

LOVE this Lavender FP Top HERE

in Smokey Red too

More Inspo



5. Misc. Fun
DEAR TBB
In case you missed it, on Thursday's, the TBB  and myself are compiling answers to your Questions for us! Yesterday's POST was a goodie!

Pool Install 
It’s really happening..my pool dreams are coming true, install began this week! 

Our #9
He finally got to pitch after weather cancelled games and while we were still bundled up like eskimos, they won a thriller! 


Shopbop SALE!!
Oh friends this is a goodie because you get 20-25% off designer brands that rarely go on sale. Time for a new Tory Burch Purse perhaps? Oh how I want that one! Or some darling Espadrilles!

Keep the partaaaay going all weekend long friends!!

  3. I can't wait to see you in your earrings and shoes and I'm sure you can't wait either since that'll mean it's warm there! I am so excited for your pool - you are going to love lounging by the pool reading a book and sipping a cocktail this Summer! Wasn't Liar so good? I just finished a so-so book last night so now I'm on to finding another equally disturbing psychological thriller, lol, what does that say about me? I'm not sure! Have the very best weekend my beautiful friend you are precious!
    xo,

  16. I had way too much fun looking through the Shopbop sale but convinced myself not to buy anything. I've sort of been on a spending spree lately and it had to stop somewhere! I love all the goodies you got from your sweet blogging friends. You and pineapples will forever go together in my mind!

  26. Goodness, girl! You got some great birthday packages!! I love it, just love it. For my birthday last summer, I actually had a pineapple themed party and my friend brought me a pineapple pitcher and a little pineapple charm. So cute! I don't have nearly as much pineapple stuff as you, tho! I LOVE that drink holder with the pom poms!

  38. I love those navy and coral flip flops! SO many wonderful goodies.

  39. I had so much fun checking out your fun blog buddy birthday surprises. Such cute stuff! I can't wait to see your pool construction. It looks like the pool structure is totally different from the way they construct down here. Here they build a rebar structure and then spray the concrete (gunnite) directly on it. Interesting. :) Can't wait to check out liar too!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh, I see a lot of fun around the corner with the new pool. And, isn't amazing what great friends we can make through our blogs. I get to meet one of mine next week while I'm in Des Moines. I'm so excited! Have yourself a wonderful weekend!

  47. All of your outfits are so cute!! I am on the list for The Woman in the Window and The Wife Between Us at the library. I will have to add Liar to the list as well. You know I am always looking for a good book! I just started reading my ARC of Bring Me Back from BA Paris this morning on the treadmill! Happy Monday!

  49. It's shocking how fast this year is moving, isn't it?! At least the weather is now starting to (Slowly) warm up! I've started to move by winter things out of my wardrobe in favour of warmer weather clothes. Let's hope it stays!!
