Sequins and Sea Breezes: Friday Five

Friday Five

7/17/2015


Happy Friday dolls! We made it! This was my first full week in two weeks so it was a bit touch and go there for awhile but I successfully made it through the week and now the weekend is just a few short hours away. Hopefully ;) I have a few things planned this weekend but hopefully I'll find some time to relax and maybe even get some pool time in. Since I got burnt in Key West my back has been peeling pretty bad and I totally look like I have leopard spots. It's definitely annoying, especially since I almost never peel. I definitely need to even out before Charleston, that's for sure! Speaking of Charleston, I can't believe I'll be up there in less than 3 weeks! Linking up with one of my travel buddies, Amanda, for our Friday Favorites!



1. I've been trying to plan my Charleston wardrobe and of course that means buying a few new outfits for the trip! This adorable top has been on my radar but for some reason I feel weird buying black to go out in Charleston. Is that weird?



2. I know I said I was going to avoid Nordstrom's sale (and I probably still will) but if I was going to give in and get something, these would be it! I'm not a huge statement earring wearer but I feel like these I'd make an exception for. I love the iridescent color, it would go with everything!




3. Ok I really can't decided between these two. I really wanted a pair of cognac shoes but haven't been able to find a pair I love in my size. I really like these but they're a bit lighter than I'd prefer but for the price they almost seem worth it! The second ones obviously aren't cognac or even any shade of brown but they are just so darn cute. Any suggestions?!?


4. Seriously though, why can't I have an unlimited bank account? This romper is so freaking cute! It would be so perfect for Charleston and summer in general. I want all the things right now!


5. Soooo not to throw a wet blanket on the Nordstrom sale but GiGi New York is also having their summer sale. If someone loves me they'll get me this as a late birthday present, or early Christmas present... or both, I'm not picky! :) Kidding aside though, I may have to buy this for myself... love!

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! I'm going to cry about the martinis I missed Thursday night due to a massive headache and hope I can have one to replace it soon! See you Monday!

  9. That romper though... SO cute!!! As for the shoes, honestly get whatever pair will work more with your wardrobe. And if you're not loving that color, then definitely don't get that Steve Madden pair. Hope that helps a little bit. :-) That black top would be nice to wear at night in Charleston, and those earrings are pretty. I hope that you have a fantastic weekend!! :-)

  11. Loving all of these!! You know I don't wear statement earrings either but I'm seriosuly obsessed with my new KS earrings and I love those iridescent ones too! Love both sandals but I see what you mean with thr SM ones being too light. They are kind of inbetween nude and brown. But they are so cute! Have a great weekend!

  19. Gigi has some of the prettiest bags! I love the first pair of shoes-- actually I love both, haha, but I kind of like the lighter taupe color as opposed to a more true cognac-- something a bit different? I hope you have a good weekend!

  29. You guys are going to have so much fun in Charleston - I'm so jealous! Oh my gosh, that printed romper is too fabulous - you have to get it! I can't handle all the sales, I cracked on Gigi this morning because it was just too good to pass up - I guess I won't be shopping at all for a couple weeks to make up from all these addicting sales!

  30. Your Charleston trip is sooooo close! Exciting!
    Those earrings are GORGEOUS! Those just made it to my wish list!

  31. I am a terrible influence and I say get it all!!! hahahaha. Seriously thought...those tanish colored shoes are so fun and perfect!! And I like the black ones too but I would say that maybe the lighter color would match a whole lot? This is so not helpful, is it? Have a great weekend!!!!!!

  34. That romper is so cute! I love the Steve Madden sandals, but I also have similar sandals in the same color. If you really want cognac, I say don't get the SM's and hold out for cognac! The black are cute too, so if you want those AND a cognac pair...get them and still hold out for cognac! Ha! Gigi NY has such pretty bags. I need to save up for one one day.
