Friday Favorites...with an OOTD!

Happy Friday!

I literally blinked and the week passed by in an instant!  We have been on the go, non-stop since early Monday morning and there's just no stopping.  Today is my middle son's birthday...we have a big 7 year old on our hands now!  Tomorrow is his birthday party with friends and it's all about Mindcraft!  I've been busy making Creeper T-shirts, pre-cutting "iron swords" for the kids to decorate, making a "Pin the Tail on the Piggie" game (apparently there's Pigs in Mindcraft...who knew?!) and getting all the food ready.  My oldest son is helping out by putting together clues for the kids to go on a 'Creeper Hunt"...I love that he wanted to help out!  Birthday parties are always so fun!

So I thought I'd share a few favorites today on the's a quick list of five things I'm loving this week:

DownEast Basics

Original Polyvore Set for this look can be found HERE...I changed a few things

Chevron Dress-DownEast Basics
Denim Jacket-J Crew Factory
Split Surface Belt-Anthropologie
Lavada Slide Sandal-Target
Mixed Spectra Necklace-Anthropologie
Color Stone Bracelet-J Crew
Rosalinda Tonal Drop Earrings-Anthropologie
Flower Bud Ring-J Crew

I absolutely LOVE this dress!  It's perfect to wear alone (yay for short sleeves!) or layered like I did here with a denim jacket.  It's bright and cheery and who doesn't love chevron stripes?!  Definitely a favorite in my closet right now.


Speaking of dresses have you seen this one yet?  I am mildly obsessed with it.  As in it's sitting in my cart waiting to be purchased.  Any minute now.  I love the mix of stripes and floral...such fun prints to pair together!  I don't do sleeveless, so it'll have to be layered with a cardi, but I'm willing to make that sacrifice.  Anything for stripes and floral. =)


I'm all about sandals and these lovlies caught my eye this week because of their pretty pink color and fun cutout design.  If I'm gonna wear flats I want them to stand out.  These will definitely do just that!


I really love the look of this necklace.  The colors are great and the simplicity is perfect.  I could see this mixed and matched a million times over with things in my closet!


I tried this on the other day when I was in Gap and decided right then and there I needed a striped tank in my workout clothes rotation.  So it came home with me.  It's adorable, comfy and comes in multiple colors.  I grabbed it in this green motif (called "Opal" online) and can't wait to wear it to the gym.  You're more likely to want to work out if you look cute doing it, right?!  

Do you have any favorite items this week you want to share?  Have you tried any of the above items?  I'd love to hear!

Have a great weekend!
