Friday Faves | November 1-7 & Some Sunshine

A weekly roundup of all my favorite things.

Bloggers Who Killed It


{Cover Up Chic} I love how she layered a lace tank over a button down.

{Kacie's Closet} Grey, pink, python, and purple booties. Because why not be awesome.

{A Spoonful of Style} This girl has layering accessories down to a science.

{A Southern Drawl} She had me at "camel pencil skirt." Plus, ankle booties + socks? I think I dig it!

{Corilynn} I shy away from colored tights because I think they make me look like pre-k, but these are all grown up and amaaaahhhzzziinnng with that scarf.

{Bows & Sequins} I avoid polka dots for the same reason, but these are so hot! Plus, Vested Interest? The lawyer in me went all googly-eyed. ;)

{Professionally Petite} Get ready to feast your eyes on the sweater jacket of your dreams.

{The Parlor Girl} Plaid and leopard. I won't even elaborate.

{MissLeaAnne} I've lived in Chicago for two months and I already feel myself morphing into a coat girl.

{Bedazzles After Dark} Some camo, some stripes, some neon, some badass sunnies... I'm in.

{Along the Lines of Style} You know how I feel about navy and pink.

The World Outside of Style Blogs

I watched the final episode of What Not To Wear and cried like a baby. Naming my firstborn "Stacyandclinton." Or "Colorpattern Textureshine."

I can't wait for Boyfriend to get home from his work trip so we can go see thissssss.
(In 3D. With Jimmy John's.)

Funemployment = I watch too much TV. I need some book suggestions - what's your favorite?

The Sunshine Award 
Thanks so much to Cait at Your Favorite Girlfriend for nominating me for the Sunshine Award way back in September! I think these things are so much fun, and it's always sweet to be thought of! 

Cait's questions:

1. What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
Brainstorm every possible reason to not get out of bed. And if I'm really trying not to go vertical, I overachieve and come up with a few impossible ones, too.

2. What is the 3rd picture on your phone? Share it!
This one. And it makes me snort laugh every time.
(In hindsight, I went third most recent. Is that weird? Did I do it wrong?)

3. What TV show are you most excited about returning this fall?
HOMELAND!!! Boyfriend and I just caught all the way up and I cannoottttttt wait for Sunday night!

4. What is something really popular that you secretly (or not so secretly) loathe?
50 Shades of Gray. I don't see the draw. I don't care who they cast. I don't care who tied up who with what. I don't carrreeeeee.

5. Do you have any pets? Tell us about them! Bonus points for pictures.
Whoa-ho-ho buddy, I do in fact have pets. Wanna read all about them? Of course you do!

6. If you could put together one outfit that represents you perfectly, what would it be?
This is still one of my favorite outfits ever. The skirt is one of my all-time favorites (I just wore it here!), and I love the combination of the tee, skirt, and ankle boots.

7. What is your favorite adult beverage?
Whiskey. As in, straight Jack Daniels. From the bottle. Otherwise, I love very cheap wine. As in, if it costs more than $9.99, it does not darken my doorway. #classybroadsquad

8. What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
I've seen this one before... my answer stands.

9. What are 3 positive words to describe you?
Nerdy (I love nerdy things and the people who love them), dog-lover (okay that's two)...

10. How excited are you to be nominated?

My 10 question for any of you who feel like answering (tag, you're all it!!):
1. What movie are you most excited to see?
2. What's your perfect date? (Don't say April 25th. Or do.)
3. Show us your pets. Dooo itttt.
4. Who's your celebrity style icon?
5. What's your favorite thing you wore this week?
6. If you could only shop at one store for the rest of time, what would it be?
7. Do you shop online or in stores?
8. What are your three favorite blogs to follow?
9. What's the best book you've read recently?
10. What shoes would you buy first if you won the lottery?


  1. that WNTW finale honestly had me weeping for a whole weekend. i've been recording all of the old episodes for months and binge watching them for the mems. so good. it's the best show on television.

    1. It's probably my favorite reality-ish show ever. I love it so much, I can't believe it's over!

  2. Can you please name something Colorpattern Textureshine?! I dream of being Stacey London with I grow up... gray streak in my hair and erry thing!
    oh and #7... I love you girl... we are soul mates.

  3. You're the sweetest. :) I'm glad that someone else loves navy and pink as much as (or even more than) I do!

    1. ohhh I will always back you up on your navy and pink endeavors :)

  4. Awww, thanks chica! So fun to read your answers.

    #10 - I would immediately buy the highest, sparkliest Louboutins possible. Duh.

  5. I love these awards to learn more about bloggers! And I'm SO glad I'm not the only one that doesnt get 50 Shades! I am not against lady books, but this one is just SO poorly written. Ugh.


    1. I just couldn't even get into it. And that's saying a lot for someone who finished all three Twilight books.

  6. Thank you so much for featuring me as part of your Friday Faves post. I am so humbled by the recognition, and that you found my outfit inspiring. :)
