Five on Friday (Or Seven)


Yay Friday! You're finally here! I actually work tonight, but then the rest of the weekend is fun plans! Unfortunately the weekend will fly by so quickly, but that's how it goes. 
I've been spending the last two weeks trying not to buy anything - which is so hard for me. So, I've been virtual window shopping. Maybe I'm the only one who does that. It makes me feel like I'm shopping, and gives me ideas for outfits.My favorite places to "shop" - Charming Charlie's, Forever 21, and Aerie. Pinterest is great too, but does it annoy anyone else when you find something you love and then it doesn't even take you to the right link? So frustrating!! Here's my 5!
Ummmm, how adorable are these? Strappy AND sprakly. If you're not a fan of pink, they come in 2 other colors from Charming Charlie's. If you are looking for new sandals, they have a ton of cute options for relatively cheap. Their styles are cute, but still original. I may try and sneak these into my suitcase for vacation in a few weeks! 
 
 Speaking of Charlie's, these are my top jewelery picks right now. That turquoise statement necklace is so cute. It reminds me of one of Emily Maynards necklaces (does anyone else like her jewelery?), but for a lot cheaper. I haven't convinced myself to buy it yet though, because I can't find enough outfits from my closet that I think it would go with. 
These bracelets would be awesome for layering which is like my new favorite thing right now. I love wearing lots of bracelets. These would be great without being too much, and they both come in at about $10. These just might sneak into my suit case too :)
 
 These picks are all from pinterest. I need to find a way to get all my pinterest pins to drop directly into my closet. Is there an app for that?
If anyone finds out where to get that first aztec print tank top, let me know. It is so cute that I am obsessed. But I can't find a good look alike anywhere. It is such a great casual look for the summer. 
And white, gold, and turquoise?! That's like the perfect color combo. I wish the pin would have had a full length view of the outfit. I am sure the shoes are amazing. I would love to recreate this look for vacation!
The lace tank and lace coverups seem to be so in, and this totally looks like something Aerie would sell. Keeping my eyes peeled! PS - there is a necklace just like the last pic at Charming Charlie's, and a look alike dress at Dottie Couture!
I'm sad. Universal Studios is making a new Harry Potter ride - Diagon Alley. And I'm going there at the end of April, but by the sound of things, it won't be open until later in the summer. I am so mad I am going to miss it! If you google the pictures, it looks like it is going to be so cool! This is the point in the convo in which my husband would call me a nerd. But I know he would ride it with me. I am keeping my fingers crossed that by some miracle it is open when we are there!
Lastly, I'll leave you with this. If you don't watch Parks and Recreation, you should. So funny. Brightens my day every time. If only we could meet these characters in real life. 
Happy Friday everyone!

    1. I am glad Im not the only one! Crazy that people even create a pin with a weird link like that!

  10. I definitely virtual window shop... I think it's a lot more fulfilling than going into a store and window shopping the old way...

    I tend to do it the most on Pinterest and Etsy (oh and the BCBG and Marc Jacobs websites..). As for Pinterest links that cease to work? I hate more when a really amazing coat or something goes to a tumblr post... because then it's literally just a picture. I finally found out this coat I'd pinned that had been like that was a Red Valentino coat (now on sale actually).

  11. Love all of those spring looks! I found a very applicable ecard on the Pinterest wardrobe comment - something like "It wouldn't take me any time at all to get ready if my Pinterest closet was my real closet" ha. Happy weekend! :)

  14. I'm so obsessed with Charming Charlies. I could spend hours in there picking things out. It's perfect for when you buy a new outfit and need a certain color necklace/bracelet to go with it.

  16. I'm sure I already shared this, but I work at Aerie! :) It makes me so happy to see people prefer Aerie over Victoria Secret! I am obsessed with Charming Charlies...when I lived in Michigan there was one in our mall. We don't have any in Louisville that I know of!
