Friday Favorites - All Dressed Up

Friday Favorites

It's Friday, which means today's post is all about my Friday Favorites! What I'm reading, what I'm watching, who I'm loving on Instagram, ect. ect.. enjoy reading below, and I would love to read about your favorites from the week in the comments! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

First and foremost, I am absolutely loving this top! 1. It's Kate Spade and under $100, 2. Those ruffles! 3. The stripes! 4. It's basic in the front and fun in the back! I am shooting photos in it this weekend and can't wait to show you all the whole look!

What I'm reading
As you all may know, I was home last week for spring break which means, of course, lots of new book recommendations! On my first flight I read Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan and it was SO good. Definitely the perfect beach read! Not only was I laughing the whole flight, but I couldn't put it down. I stayed up so late the next few nights, not being able to wait to get through the whole thing. 

"When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home, long drives to explore the island, and quality time with the man she might one day marry. What she doesn't know is that Nick's family home happens to look like a palace, that she'll ride in more private planes than cars, and that with one of Asia's most eligible bachelors on her arm, Rachel might as well have a target on her back." (Amazon Synopsis)

What I'm Watching
I'm a hardcore Shonda Rhymes fan, but I mean who isn't? Scandal, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, How to Get Away With Murder.. the womans a genius. Which is why I was so excited to watch the premier of The Catch, Shonda's latest masterpiece! And the last few episodes have done nothing but live up to the hype. It of course helps that I already was in love with Peter Krause from watching Parenthood (a solid Netflix recommendation if you're looking to start a new series! Quick warning to not wear too much mascara while watching).

Who I'm Loving on Instagram
Yes I love fashion, but I love getting inspiration from all types of creatives; whether that be brands, illustrators, interior designers, ect... so here are some of my favorite accounts for creative inspo and all sorts of cuteness! Check out @designlovefest for all kinds of design inspo (also for lots of flowers, pastels, and coffee), @creativekipi for all sorts of pastel love, @shannonkirsten for gorgeous illustrations, @fashionablehostess for all things home design and party planning, @ohmydearhandmade for gorgeous photos of her gorgeous designs, and @allshewrotenotes because everything she posts is adorable. Enjoy!

Favorite Articles This Week

I have been fiercely (yes, fiercely) searching for the perfect one piece suit for this summer and was frustrated with the prices. Which is when I found this article on The Golden Girl Blog! She perfectly put my frustration into words, and then shared her picks for the season (which are all perfect). Check it out here at!

If I could go back in time and lecture my teenage self, I would start the lecture telling myself to stop everything I was doing to my hair! I thought I was just cursed with dry, brittle, static-y hair... but no. It was everything I was doing to it. Basically I wish I would have seen this article on Haute Tempered! It's entitled 'The Top 5 Hair Myths and What You're Doing Wrong" and it speaks so much truth. It's a must read if you're looking for happier, healthier hair!
