FRIDAY FAVORITES...BACK IN THE SADDLE

Happy Friday babes! So, the hot weather is definitely sticking around Indiana and that’s just fine because you’ll find me in the pool most of the time! Vacation was fun but this week was great being back in the saddle at home. We had a bad storm this week so yesterday meant cleaning up all the limbs including one that fell onto our Pool House. Today, I will be traveling to the lavender fields in the town in Michigan where I was born. (well, the town, not the fields, lol) I’ve never been to lavender fields so I’m so excited! Here’s to a fantastic FRI-YAY! 

1. VACATION COINCIDENCE
The northern Michigan area is vast, and I knew that my best friend from high school always vacations the same week we did and I knew where she vacationed at. We saw their crew up there one other time, but it was completely crazy to run into her at the trading post and that we had an appointment to kayak and canoe at the exact same time! When her and I get together we are in our own little world and were reminiscing about our beach days as teenagers at all the good snacks we used to take. I reminded her that I still have good snacks so at the end of the River, I had a churro waiting for her, LOL! 

2. FAVE 4 HAIR PRODUCTS
I make it known that I do not promote products unless I love them 100%. Well, let me tell you about how amazing the Fave4 hair products are! I have tried one of their shampoos and conditioners and they’re the best I’ve used in years. But to top it all off, I tried their Take me to Tahiti One Minute Hair Mask and it is absolutely magic. My hair tends to be frizzy but boom, magically restored to much more manageable and shiny locks.

3. WEEK'S ATTIRE
TOP HERE // Similar Heels HERE
Top is UNDER $13

THE BACK IS SOOO CUTE!!

You all know how much I love off the shoulder but many of you mentioned that you can’t get off the shoulder tops to always stay put on your shoulders. This Dress is the perfect solution, still an off the shoulder but it has little tie halter straps! I just loved the deep orange color and midi length.

4. SUMMER DRESS & SNEAKERS
There is just something about a cute little summer dress and crisp white sneakers that I will always love! I absolutely fell in love with this MADEWELL Dress! It's on SALE! It has the cutest little polka dots on it! And I love the flutter straps. This one is a classic and I know I will wear it a lot. It would be cute with a Jean jacket over it as well. Make sure you size down one in this as it runs a little big. THE Cute Sneakers are so comfy!

Monday ~ The Best Day..sharing all about my favorite day of vacation


Birthday Boys Men
So, today is my daddy’s birthday, he turns 75! I sent him a whole boatload of goodies including a T-shirt that says, “Leave Me Alone, I’m Only Talking To My Dog Today!” He love his doggie Duke!
Some of my favorite DAD Pictures...our family always liked to match, lol


BUY DOG TEE HERE

Yesterday was my Uncle Tex‘s birthday. Yes friends, he is a bona fide cowboy! It’s hard to believe he does not have his cowboy hat on in this picture from this past Thanksgiving. He’s my mom’s older brother and we call him the patriarch of the family!

N-Sale...NOT..BUT THIS BLANKET...YES
If I see one more Nordstrom Sale post in my feed..ugh! I used to love this sale but always ended up buying so many things only to return AND ended up not wearing half of what I kept. It’s the same thing over and over. BUT I splurged on this blankie last year and it’s my favorite! If it says sold out..never fear, they restock daily!

Favorite New Earrings
Holy cow do I ever love these Earrings! So much so that I plan on getting them in many more colors. They are under $13 and are exactly identical to the Bauble Bar ones that are $40!

Hibiscus
Oh, how I love the hibiscus plant. Being in northern Indiana they really only bloom well in the hot, summer months. This year I got three and I thought they were all the Cayman Wind variety, which is a deep, coral pink but the one in the middle turned out to be a Tie-Dye Wind variety and I absolutely love it!

ENJOY YOUR SUMMER WEEKEND Blooming BABES

  15. I keep going back and forth on that blanket. I have wanted it for years, but my favorite is the lighter one, and well I am just too darn messy / clumsy with stuff and I know it will get stained!

    On another note - so neat you ran into your friend in Michigan! A family friend of ours is going to be in Michigan at the same time as my family - just a few roads down, too. Kind of crazy how it works!

  16. So much goodness in your life. Happy birthday to your dad & uncle, I think I also need that shirt. I hope your home, and everyones, is okay. Storms can be so scary and damaging. As for the fashion, when don't I love the outfits that you put together. Adorable. Happy weekend!

  17. I could not believe that precious red/orange top was from Wally World...and of course they're sold out. So cute. Hibiscus plants are so pretty and make me think Hawaii!!! My friend in OK happened to hit Lowe's one day when they were clearancing out a bunch of plants and got 4 or 5 gorgeous hibiscus plants for like $4 each or something crazy. She had them all around her pool. That hair mask sounds really good. Ok, here's me preaching as the hairdresser's daughter. I always wear my hat in the sun for 2 reasons. To protect my face and my hair. My mom was always telling me not to let the sun get at my hair. End of sermon. LOL Love you girl!!! XOXO

  22. I don't really shop the sale either. It's hard for me to spend that much money on tons of things all at the same time! And buy fall and winter things in 90 degree weather, haha! Good to know on those earrings. I've been eyeing the white pair on amazon forever! They are so cute!

  23. Love that back on the orange shirt; it's so cute! Those tie dyed hibiscus are beautiful.

  25. I am new to your Blog, but this is my favorite post of yours so far. You struck a note when you mentioned the overdose of Nordstrom Sale blogs.

  26. Happiest of Birthday's to your Sweet Daddy!! Is there a code for Fave4? I'm seriously considering buying the big hair minis! GIrl, our eyes are GLUED to the weather channel today, but I still think we're only gonna get lots of rain from Barry. Your flowers look absolutely beautiful! Who needs a lavendar field with blooms like those! HOpe you are enjoying a toddy by the pool this weekend. We're about to pic Alise up from the ACT and head to Mississippi! Mwah!

  27. I never have gotten on the Nordys bandwagon. Can't really afford even their sale prices.

    I put some of the Take Me to Tahiti mask in my Amazon cart for Prime Monday. I am toying with the idea of growing my color out and returning to my natural hair color...whatever that is! My hair is so damaged and dry, hoping that mask will revive it some.

  28. And, I second that Nordstrom comment. My goodness, blogs are just saturated with it, so I'm glad you went another direction. :o)) Isn't it great to go away and then get back home and back into our routine. I guess getting away makes us appreciate our routines. Enjoyed your post and as usual, you look all cute and sassy. Happy new week!
