Happy Friday y’all. Do you realize we are already almost half way through the month of April? It’s just crazy. Another week means another round of Friday Favorites but first I’ve got to bring a little humor to your day.
I’m straying from my normal Friday Favorites post to bring you a cute dress that is perfect for the fickle time of year we all seem to be experiencing. I know for some of you Old Man Winter is overstaying his welcome, and trust me, I get it. Been there done that. Even those of us in more desirable climates seem to be experiencing “sprinter”, this weird season that’s not quite spring, but not quite winter. One day it’s 80 degrees and the next day it’s 50. You most definitely have to check the weather when getting dressed.
Y’all know by now that I have a real love for smocking. I love it on little girls and even little boys. In the south, you can walk into any church on Sunday morning and find little ones all dressed in their precious little smocked frocks with big bows for days. Soooo sweet. I use to make most of Katie’s little smocked dresses and had such great sense of pride when she’d wear them. Well when I saw this little smocked big girl dress WITH pockets, it went right in my cart.
I’ve also told y’all that inevitably when I go out to take pictures, the wind starts up and I end up with a lot wind-blown look pictures just like this. I love this smocked dress and you can dress it up or down just by changing out your shoes and accessories. I chose to wear my block heel sandals for a little more dressed up look here.
But if you are going for a more casual look or know you’re going to be doing a lot of walking or standing, you can switch out the heels for a cute flat sandal. My Tory Burch Miller sandals go with pretty much any outfit and have been worth every penny of the splurge I spent on them. There are several options on the Neiman Marcus site right now for $50 off and Shopbob is offering 20% off. These sandals rarely go on sale, so now’s a great time to scoop them up and enjoy them all spring and summer.
In the summer one of my most worn pieces of jewelry is this confetti colored tassel necklace. I LOVE IT! I also wear this turquoise necklace a lot and now it’s available in 4 other colors. It was called Azul Stone Pendant, but they’ve renamed it Sims Stone Pendant (for Sheaffer Told Me To) and added 4 more color choices. Use the code SIMS25 to get 25% off the turquoise or new stone colors through the weekend.
A denim jacket is the perfect topper for a day when it’s breezy and is a closet essential in my book. I have a light denim and dark denim and love them equally. I don’t know about you but even in the spring and summer I take a jacket everywhere I go. Why is it when you go into restaurants and stores it’s like the tundra. I can’t eat and shop when I’m freezing.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how I use to love getting different magazine subscriptions and sitting down and reading a stack of them. Now blogs have replace magazines for me. I love sitting down and reading what’s going on in friends lives, finding new products to try, and fashion trends. If you are looking for new blogs, you can check out the ones I read most frequently listed to the right of my posts, and you can also click the Link Ups tab to see who I’m linking up with. Link ups are a great way to find new blogs.
