Sequins and Sea Breezes: Friday Five

Friday Five

6/12/2015



Happy Friday babes! Ok, I know technically the first Friday of June was last week but I was too excited about our concert to actually acknowledge it but now I'm fully into it being June AND my birthday month! What?! Oh and exactly 3 weeks until Key West! Seriously though, where has the time gone? I swear I just started my new job... and now here I am 5 months in! Still adjusting to things, getting up at 5:30 am every morning is tough. Especially when you ride the train and can't afford to hit snooze or run late or you'll be waiting 30 mins to catch the next train. The struggle is real people. And then there are days like yesterday and today where I'm so busy I feel like there aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done. So excuse me for being MIA today, I won't even have a computer with me at the shoot so I won't be checking email until I get home tonight. But let's get into our Friday Favorites with the lovely Amanda, shall we?

1. Ok, I had to share this song with you guys! I've been listening to it on repeat nonstop since Kerri and I heard them perform last Friday night. And it was on the first episode of Reign (one of my favorite guilty pleasures)! It's the lead singer of Dashboard Confessional (yup, my love for Chris Carrabba continues) with his band and his cousin, and a few other people from different bands. Totally loving them!



2. So I keep going back and forth as to whether I want to buy this romper for Key West. We're going to spend a lot of time in bikinis so I don't see a lot of need to buy a lot of new clothes but it is super cute and perfect for vacation!


 3. I've been on the hunt for a light summery scent and I'm kinda loving this one. I love that it's a rollerball so you can take it any where and not have to worry about it spilling out in your purse or bag. However I'm also totally loving the Zara scents Biana mentioned last week. They are amazing!

4. So I know I've mentioned Tieks before (probably more than once) but I'm convinced I need a pair, or several. I really really want these in chesnut but of course like everything else they're sold out in my size. Although the slate gray croc print is pretty darn cute too...

5. Kinda loving this druzy ring! So pretty but still subtle enough to wear every day. I was totally obsessed with Kristina's two finger ring and it's on sale (both are actually!) but I feel like the single ring I could get away with more for every day.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! I currently have zero plans and after last weekend I'm not sad about it... although truthfully I am kinda sad I'm not getting ready to go see Chris Carrabba right now... sigh.

  2. I think you should get that romper you could wear it in Charleston too - so problem solved!!! I really want a pair of Tieks but in a crazy color like pink so it's not even reasonable for me to spend that much money lol! Good luck today and happy Friday! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. Keep checking back they replenish their sizes pretty frequently....or I mean that's not helpful right? ;-) I think you need that romper! It will be perfect for the Summer and to throw on over your bathing suits in Key West. There really aren't enough hours in the day especially when you are waking up that early! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!!! xoxoxo

  6. Getting up early is so hard, but I get every other Monday off because of it and the traffic is better if I leave early so I try not to complain. There are not enough hours in the day, I thought that would change but it hasn't. We're still trying to decide when a trip down to Key West should happen. Lived in Florida twice and still haven't been. New vaca outfits are pretty much necessary, it's so cute and perfect for Key West! Have a great weekend!

  7. Is it seriously only 3 weeks til Key West?! Holy crap where is the time going, not that I'm complaining of course! And I've been eyeing that romper too ever since I saw Shanna wear it this week, it's too cute and the right price!

    Happy Friday gurlie <3

  8. I have been eyeing that romper too. We should both definitely get it! I can't believe how early you have to get up and how much you pack in! After a week of those wake up calls you definitely need to enjoy your weekend! xoxo

  9. That romper is super adorable, and you'll totally be able to get lots of use out of it this summer! I've also been trying to resist the call of the Tieks, but I'm not sure how much longer I can hold out, haha. Happy Friday!

  10. Getting up early everyday is a struggle. Lately, I have had a hard time even getting up. I try to do as much as I can the night before so I'm not running around in the morning. Love that romper, it would look fab on you!! I want to try the tieks but I'm afraid with my foot issue they will hurt my feet. Have a great weekend.

  13. Getting up early is so hard. My hubby gets up at 4:30 and I get up at 5:30. I feel your pain my dear. I hope today goes well and things slow down for you soon!
    You would look awesome in that romper for sure.
    And Reign is one of my guilty pleasures as well. :)
    Have a great weekend!

  16. Eek, 5:30 is too early. I'd have a hard time adjusting too. I still have a hard time getting up before 7:30. Ah that ring is so pretty! Have a wonderful weekend!

  17. oh my gosh, I LOVE that romper! I can't believe it's from Old Navy... now I'm so tempted to stop by one of our stores and see if they have it! You just reminded me how much I really want a pair of tieks too-- I love that color combo! I hope you have a good weekend!

  18. I totally feel you on the morning struggle. It's horrendous. Wouldn't it be magical to live a life where we could wake at the time our bodies naturally wanted us to? I think 10 am is my normal wake time. Someday? Probably not though. I love that Kendra Scott ring! I just got a pair of druzy earrings in white in my next Rocksbox (that I am currently stalking). Have a wonderful weekend! xo

  30. I go back and forth between whether I should buy that romper or the shorts they have in the same print. Big life decision!

  31. That Tory Burch Perfume sounds really good, and I love the idea of the little rollerball to try it out, and if I don't like it, not too much money wasted! I need to head to Sephora one of these days :)
