Friday Favorites #117

Happy Friday!

Wow, that week went by quickly. How about you? Here we are finding ourselves getting ready for the last weekend in August. That’s right. Did you realize a week from tomorrow is September 1?  You know that means, right?  Our lives are getting ready to be overtaken by none other than Pumpkin Spice.

This Friday my favorites are as easy as 1, 2, 3. No, really. I only have 3. HA! Number 1 is kinda long though, so grab your coffee because you might just find yourself getting lost on the Loft website. You’ve been warned.

Don’t forget to hit the link ups tab up top and see you who I’m joining today.

Remember this dress? I bought it back in May and so did my precious daughter-in-love. We both loved it and apparently we weren’t alone, it sold out. The cut is comfortable while being cute with the flutter sleeve and there’s also a little inset of fabric under the arm to keep your bra from showing.

Great news! The same dress is back in a fresh new floral print perfect for the wind down of summer.

I also love a cute military jacket,  and this buttery yellow one would be so cute paired with this dress and a fun pair of peep toe booties.  Need more convincing? Everything at LOFT is 40% off with code SUMMER4EVER.

Here are some of my LOFT picks


It’s been a while since I talked about Micellar water, but I thought it was time to revisit it. I talked about adding it to my nightly routine here. I still use it at night and really like it. Micellar water is a great way to quickly remove makeup no matter how tired you might be at bed time. I’d call that a favorite.

On Prime day I ordered a Ninja to replace my Kitchen Aid blender. I’ve been using it to make smoothie bowls with frozen fruit and it does a terrific job. The Ninja makes them so smooth and silky. I’ve also used it to make a protein shake and it does a great job of crushing the ice and making it more like a smoothie. I’ve never used a VitaMix, but I have a feeling this is a pretty good dupe.

Speaking of dupes. Did you catch my post on Wednesday where I shared some great fashion dupes? You can take a peak at that post here.

Okay friends. Go, have a wonderful weekend and soak up what’s left of summer.

    I started using Alise’s micellar water this week. I like it. It’s like a toner to me.

    Lisa, do you own Loft stock? 🙂 kidding, kidding! I know they have some of the cutest things and this dress looks so great on you! I love the flutter sleeves, the shift shape and print, no wonder you and your daughter loved it. i have to cool if though, as I have bought a fair amount for Fall- to start. The Ninja looks like a great blender. I dont have it but do make smoothies. Love the yellow jacket, that sweet butter yellow is a great color.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    This might help you feel a little better….You have TWO weeks of August left, not just one 🙂

      Oh my gosh Nikki!!! I need to learn to read my calendar…LOL! Thanks for giving me an extra week?

    Am I literally the ONLY blogger that hates PSL?! Well, technically, this baby hates coffee, in general, which is just mean haha unrelated, I just love that dress! I wonder if I could pull that off whilst pregnant – what do you think? Happy Friday, sweet Lisa!

    • August 22, 2018 / 1:30 pm

      HAHAHA! No, I’m sure you’re not. I like it, but I don’t think it’s life altering like some. LOL I think you could wear the dress for a little while, but it’s pretty straight cut.? XOXO

    I started using micellar water when you first told me about it, and I love it! Your looks for less post was great earlier this week! Hope you have a a great weekend!

      Thanks sweet friend. I’m sitting here in KY with my friend Dawn. Hope school is getting off to a great start! XOXO

    That dress of yours was such a steal! I love it on you. That yellow jacket is such a nice change from the olive we all own, right? So cheery and pretty. I use my micellar water every night after I use a make up remover wipe, love that it makes my face squeaky clean! My Ninja blender is also a food processor and I LOVE it. You need to share a recipe for a smoothie bowl – that sounds good!!!
    Love ya!

      You know I love a steal of a deal! Yay for Micellar water and Ninjas. Happy Wednesday

    Oooo I love that yellow jacket! I’m not into making smoothies but obsessed with trying everyone elses when they do. I just can’t be bothered with all the cleaning! haha. Have a great weekend xx Maris from Passion fruit, Paws and Peonies

      Isn’t it a cute jacket. I need another jacket like I need another big toe. HA! Smoothies are yummy, but a little work. Thanks for commenting. XO

    I love Micellar water for taking off my eye makeup! I recently was sent some Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Makeup Wipes and I love those just as much, too! We have had a Ninja for years and it’s getting old and I need to get another one. I love it. I’ve never had anything blend stuff as well as it does!


    • August 22, 2018 / 1:25 pm

      Katie uses the Target version of Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Makeup remover and loves it. Happy Wednesday! XO

    I need to try that Micellar water. And that dress is adorable! Motivation to keep trying for skinnier! :))

    • August 22, 2018 / 1:25 pm

      Micellar is so wonderful for lazy nights. Keep up the good work girl! XO

    I saw that yellow jacket earlier this week and really think I may need it. 🙂 So cute..and that dress would easily transition to fall. Have a super weekend!

    • August 22, 2018 / 1:24 pm

      It’s so cute, but I need another military jacket like I need a hole in my head. Happy Wednesday! XO

    Well, you scared me when you said that a week from today was Sept. 1st, two weeks from today will be Sept. 1st, you skipped a week. :o)) I have had a Ninja for a while and it is the “cat’s meow.” Happy weekend!

    • August 22, 2018 / 1:24 pm

      LOL, I guess that tells you the story of my life…all mixed up. HA!
      Yay for Ninjas (of the blender kind?)

    I really cannot wear yellow but I LOVE that LOFT utility jacket! So cute! And your dress is so pretty and flattering. No wonder both you and your daughter needed one!

      I think a lot of blondes aren’t comfortable wearing yellow. I go through phases. I really like mustard color though. Hope you are having a great week! XO

  14. August 20, 2018 / 10:44 am

    Such a cute floral dress. I use the Micellar Water and love it.

    • August 22, 2018 / 1:24 pm

      Thanks Lisa! Yes, Micellar water is wonderful! Hope you’re having a great week. XO

    I love the dress dear. The floral print is sooo pretty. A chic blazer will make a perfect fall look with this dress.

      Thank you Jessica. Yes, you’re so right, a blazer would be great! XO

    That LOFT dress is so pretty! I like that they thought of the inset under the sleeve too. So many dresses are cut just a smidge too low and it is annoying!

    • August 29, 2018 / 9:28 pm

      That was a very pleasant surprise and such a great attention to detail. I wish more were like that.
