Friday Favorites

Hey y'all, I hope y'all enjoy the new look for the blog, I was going for something a bit more sophisticated-not that I don't love the Lilly P print I had, but the peonies are so much cuter!

Yesterday morning was the first morning it has been chilly enough to add a sweatshirt over my big tee & Nike shorts and as much as I thought I would be happy, I was kind of sad. 
But luckily, the sadness was nothing that a little shopping trip couldn't handle!

I want to share with y'all a few things that I fell in love with this week!

Zara Scarf

Obsessed with this Zara scarf!

This Zara blanket scarf is gorgeous! Can't you just imagine wrapping up in it's warmth? I love a blanket scarf & the fact that this one is in tartan just makes my heart happy. I was really sold on this scarf until I realized it retailed for over $50. I'm sure that's reasonable for a scarf of this size & quality, but not on this college girl's budget. Luckily for y'all, I discovered it's look-alike on Amazon for only $23! Thank me later, ladies!

Rebel Women's Crimson Angel Boot

The Crimson Angel by Rebel Boots is pure vintage attitude. To start off, the vivid red leather is charcoaled for a unique scarlet finish. This hue is sure to set hearts alight. Then, in a daring twist, an ornate winged cross flies on both front and back. Rediscover your freedom in the Crimson Angel. Brave is beautiful. Rebel Boots are made for women who practice the art of living on the edge. Never ordinary, always stunning, a Rebel keeps faith in the wild and the free. Forever a Rebel.

These boots are so amazing. Every detail from the soft red leather, all the way to the detailed winged-cross that is across the front and back, is just beautiful. It honestly makes me feel like a gypsy! Lucky for you ladies, if you're in the market for the most perfect pair of boots, these are it & they're on sale for $199.95 (with free shipping!) from Country Outfitter! As much as it pains me to say it, these might really be perfect for Alabama gamedays, so all you Bama Beauties grab them while they're in stock!

Gigi New York Clutch

Plum snakeskin envelope clutch.

Ever since I first ran into this brand, Gigi New York, on Pinterest. . . I have been in love!
This plum colored snakeskin pattern is perfect in an unexpected way for Fall & I love the tassel detail. Plus, y'all know if it has a monogram, it has to be mine. 

Dark Green Pocket Loose Longline Knit Cardigan

Dark Green Pocket Loose Longline Knit Cardigans

This sweater looks incredibly comfy & it's only $45 here, which I consider a really good deal considering how often I would wear this if I owned it. I would pair it with a simple cami underneath and leggings or jeggings & boots. It would be so warm for class or out to dinner with friends!

Favorite Quote

She Trades Rose for Pumpkin Spice Lattes & Sandals for Cozy Plaid Scarves
I am so obsessed with Fall, but sometimes I get bummed about losing the warm weather. This print which you can buy here (perfect for a gallery wall!) for only $18, makes me feel much better about what I'm giving up. I don't mind the colder temps if I get my Pumpkin Spice & cozy plaid scarves, like the Zara I mentioned above!

Thanks so much for sharing my favorites from this week; I can't wait to share with you my Back-to-School necessities & Agenda posts because they should be up this weekend! And I just got my Ipsy Glam Bag in the mail, so I'll be sharing a review of all of those products next week.

Until next time. . .


  1. I love your picks! I also love GiGi New York!
