FRIDAY FAVORITES...I LOVE SUMMER

In case you missed it, this week we really kicked off Summer with our TBB ASKS Link-Up on Monday. I loved reading all the Summer Loves of my fellow friends. I am so happy it is another sweet Summer Friday! 
Let's share some Favorites!

1. Blogger Spotlight: 
Lisa from Daily Style Finds
I swear my dear friend and Blogger Lisa, should be a personal shopper. This girl showcases all of her wonderful fashion finds on her Blog almost on the daily, often finding the best sales. She is so up to date on fashion, trends and styles and has been aspiring tirelessly to create her own clothing line. This is no easy feat and trust me when I say, you’d love her designs and tastes. Not only is she stylish, she is one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet and happens to be one of my TBB sisters whom I got the honor of rooming with in Toronto. There, we found so much in common. From both being only children to living in neighboring states, right down to driving the same make and model of car! Go check out her awesome BLOG, I know you’ll come away with style ideas and maybe some blogger blame purchases, lol! HERE is one of Lisa's most favorite looks she has put together!

2. Pool News
Well, the concrete is poured, water and is in, electrical and gas hooked up. Just waiting on salts, chemical balance and auto cover..we’re so close, maybe this weekend but darn Mother Nature says rain. I did plant my window boxes and got excited when they installed a dial for the LED light package in the pool. There are a bazillion lighting options even one called “romance” and one called “party!” lol.  



All we’ll have left is landscaping, the back yard grass and sod, sprinklers installed and a Jimmy Buffet Margarita maker purchased, lol!

Our Built-In Pool boys who work for the company in the Summer! How funny as they happened to dress exactly alike on this day, had to get a pic!

3. Week's Attire

5. Misc. Fun
MOM DAY 
Now that mom is retired she can really enjoy fun summer weekdays with me and friends. She is a beach, lake and pool girl too so Wednesday we headed to a favorite Lake Michigan spot for rooftop dining, including the BEST fish tacos, yummy cocktails, a long walk and trips to cool home décor stores and a farmer’s market! It was a gorgeous day!


MY ROSES
My landscaper is amazing, he has a very keen eye and just knew I'd love these roses. They are the prettiest peachy/light coral and I have 10 of them..all full of dozens of blooms and they smell amazing!



GINGHAM LOVE
So In LOVE with this CUTE Gingham Side Tie top. My gingham craze isn't stopping anytime soon when I find such cute pieces like this. Plan on taking it to DC. It is soooo CUTE on and a good price!

  5. Oh that pool set is looking glorious. I'd pop over to celebrate with you but fear I may cause a tsunami!
    Now just what are you doing to me, young lady? I had my weekend outfits planned, I was totally in control of my own wardrobe, but now I've seen you in all your cool coralness and now I have to stop what I'm doing, go search out my coral jersey dress and party like Mrs Nine; Wishing you a swimmingly good weekend, who cares about a few drops of rain - you're going to get wet anyway, x.

  7. Your boys are the cutest! Love that you've got live-in pool boys haha!! And you and your mom are the cutest! I'm so glad she's retired now so y'all can hang out during the day! So glad your pool and backyard are getting close to being finished. Are y'all doing a saltwater pool? Dustin and I discussed putting in a pool at our home (and ultimately decided to wait until we build our next home) but I told him I wanted saltwater because I've heard such great things about it! Have a wonderful Friday, my friend!!

  29. So exciting the pool is almost finished and that your boys were part of the process. You and your Mom are the prettiest most fun duo! Glad you're getting to spend lots of time with her. Coral looks fabulous on you and I think it's one of "my colors" too, so I hear from people along with other pink tones. I can't wait to wear the dress you gifted me for my cousin's wedding in July. I've been waiting for a special occasion for so long! Enjoy the weekend my lovely friend! Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  39. I loved that cute little gingham top. I really forgot about it until today and saw that it was marked down to $19.50. I stopped by our outlet mall to see if they had it. Yes! The cashier wanted to charge me $40.00 but I told her on the web it was listed at $19.50. She gave me the online price. Score!
