Sequins and Sea Breezes: Friday Five

Friday Five

10/03/2014


Happy, happy Friday dolls! We made it through another week! I don't know about you but I'm still in shock it's already October. Where has this year gone?!? I'm definitely super jealous of all my blogger friends up north (which is pretty much everyone) who are getting to experience a real fall. Although I guess I'll just be thankful it isn't raining... yet. Hopefully I'll get to relax some tonight before my busy Saturday since I'm pretty tired from staying up super late for the UCF game last night. Just throwing it out there, I am NOT a fan of Thursday night games. Lucky me I get to go to one next week... no bueno! Now on to things I do like since it's time to link up with my girl Amanda for Friday Favorites!

1. I've been back and forth on the fur vest trend. I think it's adorable on everyone else but I don't know how it would look on me. On top of that I find it hard to justify getting one since it's so hot here in Florida and won't get cooler until at least November/December but then I see pictures like this and I'm back to wanting one again.

2. Totally craving something Cajun/spicy so I think I'll be making this Cajun Chicken Alfredo for dinner this weekend. Anything with 3 different kinds of cheese gets two thumbs up from me. <--- There goes the 4 days of cardio I did this week



3. New found obsession... loving this zodiac constellation pendant from BaubleBar. Mine is kinda boring but still loving them! And you seriously can't beat that price. Darn you BaubleBar for always having such cute stuff!


4. I've been on the hunt for the perfect fall booties and EVERY pair I find that I fall in love with are out of stock in my size. It's starting to get really frustrating. I found these and figured they were the perfect Florida fall booties since it's still super hot out down here but of course they're sold out, not just in my size but completely. Is this the universe trying to convince me to not shop?!?


5. Finally I leave you with this ridiculously adorable picture. Thanks Jill for pinning it yesterday and making me continuously stare at it! I just can't with all that cuteness. Love him/her!

Hope everyone has an absolutely fabulous weekend! We're temporarily moving offices today so if I'm MIA later it's because I'm completely exhausted from 4 days in a row of cardio (just over a month until the cruise!) then manual labor in the office ;)

  6. Um, I need to find out who the owner of that pig is and contact them to see if he/she is up for adoption. I mean, seriously. So cute! Girl, you totally could rock the fur vest trend - I have one that my grandma of all people found for me ages ago at Marshall's, and even though I think I look ridiculous in it, I still rock it! Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  9. Oh I love that zodiac constellation pendant - thanks for sharing! I'm onboard with the fur vest trend, though I'm still searching for the perfect one since the ones I've seen so far have been a bit too bulky.

  10. Ugh, I'm with you on fight nights. My hubs loves UFC and I just, don't!
    Mmmmm, enjoy every bite of that pasta! That's why I work out, so that I don't feel guilty when I indulge ;) You're a babe anyway!
    That pig!! Dying!

  11. Oh my gosh!!! That last picture, I'm dying! So cute! And I'm with you on the fur vest trend... I love how they look on Pinterest haha but every time I try one on, it just looks funny on me. I guess I just haven't found the right one yet! Happy Friday!

  14. Piggies in boots! You can't be in a bad mood if you see a piggy in boots. I agree with you on the fur vest thing. It's still fairly hot in Atlanta (granted not as hot as Florida) so to think of wearing one right now seems uncomfortable. Later this fall perhaps. I saw the zodiac constellation necklaces from BaubleBar yesterday and thought that they were the coolest thing. Thanks for sharing!

  15. You should definitely get a fur vest. You will wear it for years and love it (when it is cool enough!) I can't even with the pig in the boots, that it is the cutest! Hope you have a great weekend!

  16. Great post, love the piggy.I live in Florida and it's like 90 degrees and still wear winter stuff, so go ahead and try the vest.

  26. The piggy is so cute!! Now I want a pet pig. Hah. And that cajun pasta looks amazing. I'm so hungry right now, so of course now I want pasta. Apparently, I'm easily influenced this morning. :)

  27. I feel like we are always on the same page. I have been on the fence about a fur vest for years. They are so cute but how long can you really wear them for? I tend to have the opposite problem where it gets too cold too quickly. I've been having the same shoe problem too! It's getting seriously annoying. Darn our popular foot sizes! Have an amazing weekend!

  29. That pig though! Also, I feel like you would look perfect in a fur vest...seems like your style! I live in AZ and I definitely don't get much use out of mine, but I still think it's worth it. They are fun to throw on every now and then :)
