Friday Finds - More Sale Finds + Things to do in Cinci



Shirt Available at Thug Life Shirts

Happy Friday! This was only a 3-day work week for me, but I'm already so ready for the weekend! We have some fun plans with friends and family, so as long as the weather cooperates, it should be a good one! I hope the only question I have to answer is the one above ;)! I wanted to leave you with the links below for some light reading/shopping before you start your weekend.

If you love the shirt above, you'll love this one!

Last few days to shop the NSale. Here are my updated picks based on what's still available:




Shameless plug: are you using liketoknow.it yet?! If not, you should be! Read this post if you have any questions about it!

This Baublebar necklace is on MAJOR rotation. See the (many) ways I styled it here.

I know I have traveled a ton this year already, but I am getting the itch again. Looking at this isn't helping!

Loved this post by One King's Lane on decorating tips & tricks.

Speaking of decor, if you live in Cincinnati, you have to go to this store ASAP. I want everything.

MPMF is back and I am so excited. Shows start May 29th.

If you're looking for al fresco dining options in Cincinnati, I love this roundup.

Spotlight Weekly Link-Up - Pastels


Today, I'm co-hosting another link-up with Elle of Living in Color Style and Jacqueline of Stylin' In St.Louis! The theme is pastels so I thought it'd be the perfect opportunity to wear my favorite mint shorts from J.Crew. I love them with a plain white tee and some gold accessories. Mint and gold is a dream color combination, in my opinion. I love my polka dot Kate Spade sneakers and I think these really complete this fresh, springtime look. Come link up your favorite pastel look below and give me a follow on bloglovin'. Hope you're having a great week!

Patio Party

On Sunday evening we had some of our closest friends and family over to enjoy our new patio/fire pit we just had built! I wanted something comfortable and cute since it was pretty hot outside and we were going to be doing a lot of drinking and eating. This dress I scored from the NSale definitely fit the bill! It's under $60 and I just love the colors and the mix of stripes and floral. Plus, it's SUPER comfy but it looks very structured. There's a few days left to shop the sale so don't wait. See my picks here! I hope you all had a great holiday weekend.








Dress: Nordstrom (under $60!) // Heels: Schutz // Clutch: Kate Spade (finally on sale!) // Earrings: Baublebar // Cuff: Baublebar // Leaf Ring: Vintage (super similar here)

Trend Spin LinkUp - Denim


I'm so excited to co-host the Trend Spin Link-Up with Laura of Walking in Memphis in High Heels and Erin of the The Fashion Canvas! Today's theme is denim so I had to bust out my favorite denim shorts EVER from rag & bone. They're definitely an investment but they are worth every penny. I've worn mine so much since I got them and they are just the perfect fit. I was inspired by one of my Thread Cincinnati babes, Olivia, to pair them with my varsity sweater. This look is super cute and casual and perfect for everyday. Be sure to link up your favorite denim look below and give me a follow on bloglovin'!











Sweater: SheInside (also here) // Shorts: rag & bone (under $30 option) // Slip-ons: American Eagle (love this option) // Earrings: Le Boutique Shop c/o // Bag: Prada // Watch: Michael Kors // Beaded Bracelet: Max & Chloe // Turquoise Ring: Forever 21 (similar here) // X Ring: Baublebar // Aviators: super similar here

Full Skirt & Stripes + SALE ALERT

In the spirit of remixing old favorites this week, I thought I'd bring back this full skirt that was originally styled here. I love full, ladylike skirts like this. They're super easy to throw on and you can dress them up or down. Here, I kept it pretty simple with white pumps and a striped tee, but jazzed it up with fun earrings and a sequined clutch. This would be perfect for date night or you could swap out the heels for sneakers or slip-ons for a fun weekend look. In other news, my favorite Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale is now going on, where you can save up to 50% off clothesshoes, and bags/jewelry! You can also save on designer favorites like Burberry, rag & bone, and Tory Burch! Let me know what you snatch up!










Skirt: Express (similar here) // Shirt: Saint James for J.Crew // Shoes: Zara (nearly identical) // Bag: Purchased in India (similar here) // Leaf Ring: Vintage (love this one) // Watch: Michael Kors // Earrings: Baublebar // Sunnies: identical here // Necklace: ILYCouture

Espadrille Season

I love me some espadrilles. They are so comfy and come in so many cute colors and prints. These are old favorites from J.Crew and I just love the bright pop of color they give to any look. This tee is also an old favorite and I love the laser cut detail on the shoulders. It's so unexpected and elevates this otherwise casual look. I was scrolling through my instagram and realized I haven't worn this top in a year! It was definitely time to bring it out. See how I originally styled it here and throw it wayyyy back to this look. In fact, I remembered I had originally bought this top for when my husband (then fiance) and I went to Vegas to celebrate our engagement! Wow, time flies. I hope you love this look and I've also tagged some more espadrilles to love below!
