Friday Favorites - All Dressed Up

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday lovelies! On the top of my favorites list this week is that it's almost SPRING! Flowers are everywhere and I finally brought all of my shorts and sandals out of hiding in the back of my closet. Read below to see what books, shows, and articles are also on my list this week!




What I'm Reading
My most recent read was This One Is Mine by Maria Semple. Semple is one of my favorite authors (see also Where'd You Go, Bernadette?) so I knew I would not be disappointed when I downloaded the book. And yep I was right! Much like Where'd You Go, Bernadette?, This One Is Mine did a brilliant job of tackling a big issue in the character's life by bringing quirky details and humor to the situation. A quick synopsis via Google..

"Violet Parry is living the quintessential life of luxury in the Hollywood Hills with David, her rock-and-roll manager husband, and her darling toddler, Dot. She has the perfect life - but she's deeply unhappy. David expects the world of Violet but gives little of himself in return. When she meets Teddy, a roguish small-time bass player, Violet comes alive, and soon she's risking everything for the chance to find herself again. Also in the picture are David's hilariously high-strung sister, Sally, on the prowl for a successful husband, and Jeremy, the sportscaster savant who falls into her trap.".


What I'm Watching
Recently I have started watching ABC's new show The Family, and it is so good! There's only been 3 episodes so far (you can find them on demand) but they were filled with drama and suspense. It's definitely a must-see! 


Who I'm Loving on Instagram
And for a little blogger love, I figured I would share some of my favorite bloggers who inspired me to begin doing this in the first place, and who I pull so much inspiration from! Blair Eadie of Atlantic Pacific is just #goals. Her preppy and chic sense of style is such a huge inspiration for me. Find her at @blaireadiebee! Another huge inspiration is Caitlin of Southern Pearls and Curls (@cmcoving), along with Katey of The Chronicles of Frivolity (@kateymcfarlan), and Juliah Engel of Gal Meets Glam (@juliahengel)!
